Re: "Techno superpower"
I wonder if in a bid to save money, western dance music producers will outsource their music production to China? I can imagine a huge Foxconn factory just full of Macs, Midi controllers and speakers with hundreds of workers toying away knocking out the latest tunes - I wonder which production line would be the most prized to work on? I imagine it must suck to be on the Dubstep line, all that wobble bass would drive the workers insane!
It's London's favourite kind of litter. Available from your nearest railway station floor or train carriage seat.
I've heard the Daily Mail referred to as many things before but calling it an asylum-seeker database is being a bit loose with the terminology if you ask me!
Boris Johnson mascot
I actually happen to have a little insider information about the official Olympic merchandising. They were actually going to bring out a little model of a Boris Johnson mascot until it was pointed out to them it would be significantly more electable than the real thing so had to abandoned it for fear the greatest city on earth would be ruled by inanimate lump of plastic with a silly hairstyle!

Always makes me laugh when on the few occasions I have visited the Daily Mail website for some reason (usually involves me laughing and saying "oh my balls, what a bunch of BS") and I see a picture credited to "The Internet". I mean seriously FFS!
The scary thing is that most of their die hard fans probably think the internet is an actual legal entity - one which is systematically trying to corrupt their kids with extreme porn!
Re: Why, oh why...
Why are all of LinkOfHyrule's posts on this forum troll-ish?
The Register is my favourite Out-Law.com re-branding company.
Finally a phone...
Finally a phone that can stands the demands of a large scale watersports party! I'm sure they did extensive researched and decided there was a market for it here. Do they know something we don't?
They don't care if you break copyright if it makes them some dosh
There was a time when you could have sampled the shit out some old song, made a underground dance remix of it and if it got popular, nine out of ten times the rights holders would authorise you to release it legitimately once they saw the pound signs flash in their eyes at the thought of royalties. Sometimes though they would sue you if the tune had already sold big and get all the earnings from it.
If copyright infringement makes them money then they want to know. This is why you can sample other's music and get away with it if you make little or no money - it would cost them more to sue you than they would get in damages.
The reasons these guys want three strikes is so they can sue you and be up on the deal. No other reason. They cannot do it in this country at the moment and make it stick. It dose not matter also if its big corporate music, books, whatever. Rather than come up with a decent business model that works in the 21st century they would rather stick to what they know - screwing everyone in sight - can't blame them really, they are after all a type of pimp.
Please by all means sue large scale criminal pirating operations. But when you start suing your customers for downloading Justin Beiber's latest vocal arse sludge based on some dodgy list of IPs then you're no better than crims yourself really.
"of merchantable quality"
That made me giggle! I would however argue that Microsoft are a right bunch of merchants!
All new Microsoft products come with a free roll of toilet paper - it's what the end user agreement is written on!
Don't complain dude, this place keeps me off the streets! I'd be a productive member of society if it wasn't for these forums and their ever dwindling levels of moderation!
I also find your comment offensive to kids - 5 year old ones do not make jokes about BO - they do jokes about snot at that age!
"The Jeremy Kyle Show"...
Put me on the lie detector and ask me if I have been romantically involved with any member of the opposite operating system! If I fail, Steve Ballmer can come on wearing a tracksuit and storm the stage shouting "You f***ing liar, I'm guna f*** you up you cheating f***ing c***, you get me!" Then the two security dudes have to hold him back as he goes for me. Typical episode of the show that would be.
decision about the so-called "Twitter Joke Trial".
Well at least they have their terminology correct - it certainly is a joke trial.
Mine the one with a copy of "English Criminal Law for Dumb Shits" sticking out the pocket!
Re: Who plays games on a Mac
There's a new multi-platform game you could try playing - its quite popular these days - its available on all flavours of desktop OS, all smart phones, heck even SMS text messaging to a degree!
Its called "Trolling"!! It's rather fun and it's social without actually needing to have any friends! Try it out its a right jolly jape!
Maybe it was the same turtleneck all the time
Hahahaha! Love it!
And as for the dumb shits at work - maybe Atari was divided into two camps - dumb shits and smelly shits.
Re: "... who he considered to be "dumb shits"."
I think it's funny they made work nights because he stank! Hahaha! No wonder he took to wearing turtlenecks in later life, they help keep the BO sealed in!
I thought this was a news story about the Guinness word record for Anilingus and was confused to find it on The Channel - it's really more of a Reg Hardware story if you ask me - but alas its something to do grown up things and not about rude stuff at all!
Is this thing ever going to launch? I am in my twenties yet I am fully expecting to be long dead by the time it comes out! I honestly think it would be quicker for Paris to evolve into a race of super humans!
Okay not everyone is a twat then, fair point. There are some people who would like their iPads on the wall for various reasons, I think cooking and boats come under my small flat point though seeing as both tend to be small in the main.
I am not unimaginative either - I just think having a tablet computer on the wall looks shit. I imagined it and in my mind's eye it looked shit, sorry.
I would rather have a consistence way across all websites and across all browser to deal with this - this is going to get on my tits! I do hope it doesn't become tempting to use a VPN or proxy via another non EU state because of this shit!
I think the whole reason for the ICO's softly, softly fiddle with a monkey approach is that they know it's going to be an epic screw-up all round but they are just not sure exactly how. They do not to me seem like the sort of dudes that can effectively plan what their having for tea let alone the future of the interwebz and personal information in general!
I'm plonking a Paris on this as I actually genuinely think she would have come up with a better solution!
Re: EPIC FAIL
Seems to work now but still, that's classic FAIL! I am giving them another FAIL point too for having a beige-ish website - what do they think it's the 70s or something! I feel like I'm in an episode of Life up Mars's Arse going to that site!
I was hoping this was an article about Apples new range of sex toys - vibrating rounded rectangles - iCum
Some of the less well known ones...
Gordon Brown streaking (113)
Lorry full of kittens shed its load (2120)
Impromptu illegal jungle/drum n bass rave in carriageway (1085)
Road closed due to flooding caused by football hooligans urinating en-mass (775)
Diversions due to a young couple making love atop a keep left bollard (4569)
They thought of almost everything!
Obligatory meme based pun
In Russia, premium rate telephone lines call you!
'Click on an ad or two'
Clearly begging isn't illegal in Massachusetts then!
Seriously? Kids are doing this days are they? Na, it aint the cool ones playing flash games on social networks, its the sad fuck ones!
With as classy a company name as that they might as well be called "Dodgy Dave's Digital Deception Development and Distribution Ltd"
Why the heck are these guys not in prison? And will the makers of Angry Birds and Google hurry up and sue these guys arses off for trademark infringement , distributing pirated aps and terms of service breaches! I know some users may be too dumb to read ap permisions but still!
I wonder if A1 Agregator are one of these "Silicon Roundabout" firms? Na can't be, these guys actually made some money!
Bad news for lawyers, good news for hippies
I can't wait for that new iPad game that's comming out soon - Lawyers vs Hippies!
Re: What about my 3 year old?
"Steve Jobs in his house, bare of furnishings and furniture save for a hi-fi and a beautiful floor-standing Tiffany lamp. Echoing the adages of William Morris and Oscar Wilde."
Next time you get burgled, before you start bitching, stand back and just examine the scene for a few moments - maybe the thieves did you a favour and gave you a new tasteful, beautiful interior!
Pay close attention to the obligatory turd they often left behind - if its carefully placed in such a position that it's highlighted by the glow of one or more of your remaining light fittings then you know these guys know their installation work! You may find being robbed adds value to your home rather than detracting from it! Imagine Banksy coming round to nick your Playstation - you'd be the envy of the neighbourhood!
Re: You don't have an ad-blocker installed?
No I do have AdBlock, I was "Joking" hence the "Joke Alert"!!! It was an excuse to make a very bad joke, I learned how to do it from reading lots of Register headlines over the years!
Why do I get the feeling my fellow comentards only take me serious when I am being firmly tongue in cheeks!
I'm going to have to get a life at this rate and find something better to fill my afternoons with. Like auto-erotic asphyxiation using a scrunched up Daily Mail as a ball-gag. Would love to see them report my death if it goes titsup "Dead pervert choked on Daily Mail bigotry"
Re: Golden Shower
We should all get tested for hepatitis then as a precaution - I do not mean to cast accusations or anything here but we're being pissed on by Torries and Liberals and they have a bit of a reputation for certain "things"!
Any excuse! You lot are worst than me! Honestly!
Re: "Joking aside I have never heard of her"
If only I actually gave a shit who she was!
Re: What about my 3 year old?
Bitch fight! Laptop bags at dawn!
At first I was afraid I was petrified
Do you think I'd crumble
Did you think I'd lay down and die?
Oh no, not I. I will Sir Ive
Oh as long as I know how to love I know I'll stay alive;
I've got all my life to live,
I've got all my love to give and I'll Sir Ive,
I will Sir Ive.
"She had a Facebook account on which she has 6 million friends,"
Fook me! That's a lot of "friends" she must be the loveliest lady in the whole wide world.
Joking aside I have never heard of her - I take it she's a new version of Paris or something? No idea what a Bieber is either which is probably lucky. Sounds rather nasty like it causes a rash or something!
This hacker bloke sounds like a right twat too I would like to add - seriously dude, you aint got the clout to get away with hacking, who do you think you are Murdoch or something!
she was "appalled" by what she found there
Well if you type into Google "Lesbian robot vomit scat rotten turnip insertion rubber suction tube infected mudchute BDSM spanking breath-control electrocution concrete-bolard-dildo-fisting muff-stuffing bukkake party hardcore extreme mega uber porno" then what do you expect!
Re: There's two types...
Seriously dude, I was going to make this exact same comment, hate it when this happens!
Rip off of BBC TV Centre
Apple/Steve stealing shit from others and claiming it as their own invention again.
Just found an actual transcript of the court case online...
Your honor, unicorns do so exist! Steve had a whole stable full of them back in Cupertino - we would squeeze their teats to extract the magic! We then take that magic, ship it off to China, and 8 weeks later a new version of iPhone emerges!
We put it to this court that Samsung has willingly and recklessly infringed our magic milking patent in the production of their so called smart-phones. They may be smart, but your honor, they sure aint magic! I rest my case...
I think the only cables they lay these days are in the staff toilets!
If he gets convicted and sent to jail he'll be shitting bricks!
