apart from the grass obviously!
Oh yeah and in case I get accused of being homophobic - I am actually am gay and was actually just joking that the party venue looks a little like a down-market gay sauna.
I've been to that gay bathhouse!
I don't know about all MS staff but...
I have it on very good authority that actually, Ballmer does indeed sit down at the end of everyday and peruse these very forums while enjoying a lovely glass of Buckfast tonic wine and a hand rolled Old Holborn cigarette. He's a very refined man, clearly!
I remember once accidentally smashing a hole in the ground that sort of wrecked an ant's nest - talk about an AntyLeak they were bloody spewing out everywhere!
Modern UI eh?
The 1960s council towerblock estate of UI do they mean?
Is Windows 9 going to have post-modern UI with exposed pipework all over the screen like the Lloyds building?
Well if this actually makes much difference, I'm sure sites like filestube won't be complaining. I also wonder if firing off a load of dodgy copyright complaints to google will become the latest SEO technique!
A mate of mine works for TaylorWoodrowBarretWimpeyArsePipes the house builders, and he is reliably informed that the company is importing 300 of these balls for a new development! They will be sticking a slate roof and uPVC conservatory on each of them and then dumping them in the middle of the athletes village to form part of the regenerated East London's Olympic legacy!
Someone should send a cameraman into Redmond and film the Windows 8 development team at work - once it's over, package the footage up into thirty minuet episodes and market it as a spin off from "The Thick of It", as judging from what little information does spill its way out from there it sounds like its a right farce inside! Plus I can just imagine Ballmer going all Malcolm Tucker!
Slave Identity Module
You gave us precise measurements for these new-fangled SIMs but no mention of whether they have sharp or rounded corners?!
Mines the one with a nano-SIM in the pocket...somewhere!
New name for diehard Apple lovers...
I suggest we call them "Apple Victims"
Product marketing diversification opportunity...
Bic should package both the lighter and Biro together and sell them in B&Q shouldn't they!
I love all the Apple stories, 'cus they're a nice easy piss taking target for my crap jokes about rounded rectangles and I have literally got about 1,000 upvotes to 50 downvotes thanks to our fruity friends! I think that speaks for itself!
realise not release lol
LMAO if they did do that, Microsoft might have the bright idea of making a custom screw for the xbox - in the shape of an X - and not release their balls-up until after the press releases and patent applications have been sent out!
If this aint fake, then why didn't they invent a screwhead in the shape of their very own apple logo? Or even better, they should have invented the turtle-necked screw!
This is how it actually happened!
"Hello banking customer services, how may I help you?"
"Hi, it's Kylie here, you know, Kylie Minogue!"
"Can I have your account number and password please..."
"Urm I can't actually remember my password as I am just so busy being Australia's best loved female solo artist - can I sing I Should be so Lucky to you instead to prove I am who I say I am?"
*Presses play on CD player*
If they charge £1.99 for 0Kb I wonder how much a gigabyte costs using the same rate?
Bloody hell I make that infinite pounds and infinite pence! I'm glad I'm not a Virginyte as I don't think I could manage a repayment plan for a debt that steep!
I'm making a complaint to the ASA...
...about the 90s Dutch Eurodance band 2Unlimited - if you ask me they are both very limited in terms of talent and in terms of what constitutes an actual band of musicians! I'm expecting it to be fully upheld!
real money gaming is a popular leisure activity in the UK
real money gaming is a popular way to piss away your family's income in the UK, if you are so desperate to do it you need it on facebook.
Corrected it for them
I always put my sexuality as MILF curious
it'd be easier than wiping your arse.
That made me lol as I can just imagine a new marketing slogan - "Linux Servers - Easier than wiping your arse" and a little picture of that penguin dude holding a bog-roll!
it begins with 'C' and ends in 'sucker'...
Hahahaha it's true I tell thee!
These firefox boys think of everything! You'd never get that in MS word unless some programmer hid it in hex amongst a load of C code!
Imagine if Sinclair were still knocking about - they would have totally already made this phone!
Oh I would love a SpecPhone - Android ported to the Zialog Z80, membrane touch-screen making use of flexible e-ink technology, built in PAL/Freeview tuner with long telescopic aerial, pocket sized thermal printer add-on, powered by non standard sized button cells and Microdrive data storage - it would kick arse! The ringtones would suck though with that poor quality and inflexible built in beep!

Satanist - "thought for the day" lol
Re: It's actually quite good for...
Loads faster not loads fester - duh I FAIL lol Fitting considering the topic of discussion.
I remember in the late 80s even still, BBC2 used to close down for a little 10 minuet snooze with some shit Jazz music in the afternoons before Finger Mouse came on!
"that ghastly programme with Esther Rantzen...."
Which one dude? Everything she was in sucked hard! Actually the best thing she ever did was that advert for Ambulance Chasing Lawyers Direct - dozy mare ends up doing an advert for exactly the sort of company she spent years campaigning against - duh!
Re: A quick heads up
Don't worry guys, the "fall lineup" as they call it over in NY and Hollywood is kick ass - literally, we have a show about kicking donkeys - part of a series called "Animals Hospitalised"
Also look out for our glitzy new talent show - "The Hex Factor" it goes a bit whitcrafty but our sponsors (an infomercial for a motivational self-help audiobook on cassette tape) insisted we widen the demographic a bit!
It's really exciting times for us, we even have our own miniature version of BBC TV Centre - its basically the same thing except it's in a small light industrial unit it Chigwell!
It's actually quite good for...
...typing in the name of a movie and scrolling down to the subheading named "critical reception" - it loads fester than the other movie review websites, you can be in and out in less than 5 seconds if you just want to quickly know if something on Netflix sucks or not!
baa out loud!
This gives me an idea for a new SMS adult service - chat live to bored sheep! X-rated woollen action! 09069 69CHOPS - £1 per text plus standard network rate.
A quick heads up
Just to let you all know, my new show "Piss Pot Makeover" is starting tonight at 9PM on GoatSlaughter TV - the new Satanist channel on Freeview HD!
Check it out, this week I will be wrapping a late Victorian era porcelain chamber pot with some offcuts of cheap textured wallpaper and also showing you how to snazz up a 1980s vintage plastic hospital bedpan!
I bet BBC1 are shitting themselves! I better send them one of my props!
I got a spam email yesterday in my new outlook.com email inbox - it said...
"Worried, embarrassed, ashamed of the length of your password? Your password length fails to impress her? Feeling inadequate next to that fat nerdy dude in the IT office?....." etc
Then it went on trying to flog me "herbal password extenders!"
Can they please introduce a "stop showing ads for stuff I'm never going to buy in a million years" rule too? I remember a couple of years ago one VOD site that managed to evade my ad-blocker used to show me adverts for ladies shampoo a lot - I am not a bird I am a bloke! I don't care about split ends lol and so much for targeted advertising! Maybe they can program the flash player to overlay a message saying - "oi, mate, buy beer instead!" that would probably work!
I can't wait to buy a knitted apple laptop
Re: "It's not a Metro Lyn, it's a Rover 100!"
You've actually inadvertently made a really important point - Windows 8 is actually so bad, Allan Partridge will now start using a Mac! And he's the sort of dude who'd have thought Windows ME was the best OS ever...
I actually need to post nasty comments about MS for "technical legal reasons" - it's part of my remit to be seen as a beacon of impartiality. I've slagged Apple so much for their rounded rectangles that its only proper I slag MS for their very much non rounded rectangles too!
I think after 5 minuets of being on hold to any company, a message should kick in offering you the chance to press 1 and hear some free recorded phone sex stories to help relieve the stress while you're waiting! Then again, customers would start moaning, and possibly groaning too, when they're taken off hold, especially at the crucial moment!
Might as well just merg the banks with the scammers old friend

At this rate, we will have scammers bonking into people on packed rush hour commuter trains.
