Cassette tapes? Unspooled cassette tapes? Hex? Surrey? Stockbrokers?
Now, I must admit, you do very occasionally do still see an unspooled cassette tape laying around in odd places like canal footpaths, back alleys and railway sidings but its nowhere near as often as you used to. However I've never thought of it as a sign of evil, more a sign of bored children destroying their parents '80s mix tapes for a laugh!
Oh and I'm sure the evil spirits used to use mini-disc too! Actually, some used to use DAT tapes too as it gave better fidelity evilness before CDRs and Mini-discs came along!
I live in Surrey, and I still have loads of cassettes! Hence the flame icon!
Not good for the alleged "file sharers"
Not good for those they poor 80 year-olds, who don't even know how to turn a computer on, who are "suspected" of downloading hardcore gay porn is it!
So I will mark them down for that, but they get top marks for getting hold of the idiot who runs the firms emails and for attracting the attention of privacy groups and hopefully the Information Commissioner!
Paris, 'cus even she aint this loose lipped!
"I was thinking if it does I have decided to resort to terrorism."
"I was thinking if it does I have decided to resort to terrorism."
Everyone should change their email signatures to this. Oh what lulz could be have with the inevitable misunderstandings the will ensue!
Paris, cos its my third Paris in a row and apparently its lucky to have her three times in quick succession!
Jail time when no money was made from the "crime". I'm glad we live in a fair society! Meanwhile real crims, bankers and MPs who have actually profited from crimes, go about their business as normal!
If I was him I would appeal sharpish as this is a miscarriage of justice. Clearly any normal person would see that!
Lexus at a local Sainsbury's.
Shame is wasn't a Lexus at a local BP garage in the Norfolk area - I could of made a funny about Alan Partridge.
But anyway, I do like the bit about the suspected crim wearing clothing to warm for the time of year!
What about Bi people like me though? What's my carbon footprint?
Foxconn also make your...
Foxconn also as far as I am led to beleive, make your Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, DS, PSP, Laptop, Sat Nav, Mobile phone, remote controls, Desktop PC and probably your sandwich toaster and who knows, your cuddly toy! (awww)
No doubt you've brought loads of Foxconn stuff since the bodies started dropping so I wouldn't use that against Apple.
Wow! These Macs actually sound quite hot if its true you get abused why you buy one! Cor! Do you have to type in a safe word though if Steve starts pushing past your limits?
So maybe there is added value in Apple gear after-all! Sign me up as a new slave to the cult please!
I'm calling it
I'm calling it a Bicorn!
If it were to have three horns, it would be a demolished shopping centre in Portsmouth!
I swear it's the fault of the Firefox spell checker!
They ALWAYS pick on me! I swear it's the fault of the Firefox spell checker, I swear! (Which by teh way, wants to correct "Firefox" to "firebox" - see told you it sucks!)
"Do not fall victim to these fraudsters, otherwise you will be using apostrophes incorrectly in many ways, such as "I remember the 70's... well actually I don't" when the correct usage should quite clearly be "I remember the '70s...".
Oh, I didn't know I had been shoving the apostrothingy in the wrong place, I shall try to remember that one! So don't say I don't try to learn from my mistakes! You'll probably find something else to pick on me with next week though!
I wasn't even impersonating you, I was trying to be a good citizen!
I can't though
Ken Livingstone "had the lines un-installed!" These days, the "download" speed is pretty low! Not many "packets" landing there these days compared to when I was a nipper!
Some of us like the non IT stories
Personally, I like stories about lesbian vampires, devils in tiles and people with neurological disorders singing 80's karaoke!
This is a tech story though, sadly twitter is actually a technology of the information variety! Although personally, I would consider twitter technology of the Joseph Bazalgette variety!
Quick sign me up!
Where do I sign up for "unlimited down-pigeons!?"
Always believe in f***.
First I thought it was quite funny, then I felt really really sorry for teh poor chap. He seems to have a pretty bad touch of the Tourette's there. Good on him though.
I know someone with an extreme case of Tourette's who actually sings while out in public to avoid calling passers-by c***s!
Economic down turn, most over used excuse of the moment
Oh so its this economic down turn causing a rise in pie sales is it? Got actual real proof of that, Mintel mintoes or whatever you name is?
They could equally argue climate change is causing sales of pies to increase, or even blame it on a rise of the number of cats put into wheelie bins!
I reckon its either because people just fancy pies slightly more often than before or its John Prescott causing the rise single-handedly due to comfort eating now Labour's out!
These stories of kids buying stuff online like this are nearly always from Aus or New Zeeland. Wasn't there a case a few years ago of some crap news channel making up these sort of fake stories to plug an auction site they also owned? I seem to recall stories of young kids buying tractors on their parents accounts etc.
Don't tell me the app the kid brought was in some way related to the news organisation that first broke this story!
Paris cos I might be barking up the wrong tree, and urm, yeah barking seems like something she would know about!
Apple gets all the press
If there were reports of Steve Ballmer getting stopped by airport security with 2,000 smuggled Lambert and Butlers* in his hand luggage no one would give a damn. Jobs gets all the attention from the media, I'm sick of it, I need more opportunities to take the piss out of other tech bigwigs on internet forums!
*Other brands of cancer causing substances, including asbestos, are available!
The riding of mobility scooters
They could make the riding of mobility scooters an attraction in and of itself like the family fun-day episode of Phoenix Nights!
Would be a great excuse too for an officially licensed version of "Potters Big Pink Paradise"!
"or face extension"
"or face extension"
haha got me!
I was uncharacteristically grouchy today, more a case of Firefox's spell checker failing, spell checkers are an area where Microsoft actually beets Mozillia!
They aint going to catch the prolific shearers and downloaders anyway. They will find a way to avoid detection. They only way to counter it, is to bring in laws and powers that take away all our privacy.
Wow, loving the thought of living like a slave with no private life because the music and film industries don't have a clue! You're all pricks, you deserve to go under, seriously fuck you all, you will die, when we start our own media companies that don't treat customers like shit you won't be able to compete. You'll have to get with the times or face extension.
Or maybe you will just get the laws changed so will all have to be your bitches. Yeah looks like you are doing that. How long will it be until independent film and record companies are made illegal.
Remember folks, the music business sue single mums thousands for sharing a few crap tunes. These people are scum, ripping of artists, consumers and now even conning the bloody government once more to get their own way and rip us all off. Fucking scum!
OMG I just had a great idea!
I've just had a great Idea that will solve this problem for everyone.....
iPads! Yes - use iPads all the time while being naked - its just big enough to cover most rude downstairs lap areas! (Unless you're a lucky chap!) Not sure what ladies will need to do to cover their upper rude area - maybe two more iPads? Either way, just converting to fanboism will solve all problems!
See, it really is true that Apple products solve all known problems!
Mine's the one i'm not actually wearing.
Oh my, all two of their listeners will be horrified! Oh, Sorry, I forgot, only 50% of their audience uses the internet, and it was him who discovered it!
I'm joking! Calm down! They actually have three listeners as I sometimes tune in when I can't sleep! That's why its called Radio "Three" you know!
Quite a lot of exclamation marks in this post isint there!
Only a matter of time...
It's only a matter of time until the governtards will ban us from filming ourselves eating hot chillies as it will be classed as extreme porn causing life threatening injuries to a persons anus!
Notice I haven't used the joke symbol, I'm serious! They probably will!
Nothing new here
Google suggest and the oh so lovely (not) Google toolbar have been doing this for years. And yes, I was well aware of the whole fuc, shi, cun, boll, wan, twa, situation! It also holds a grudge against the music style and building material both known as hardcore.
I wonder how many 48k Speccys you would need to store 1.5 gigs between them all? I cant be bothered to do the math(s) but maybe someone else could and then a "Speccys worth" could maybe become a new official unit of measurement?!
...Extreme Conkers! Or Urban Conkers! No...? Virtual Conkers? ConkesVille? Conkr.com? iConk?
I love how
I love how the usb stick was branded with the police details - I wonder if the MI5 and MI6 usb sticks are branded with the words "Top Secret"!?
Mines the one with the word "Coat" printed on it!
There's so many jokes I could make about this...
...But i'll do a non rude one and say...
Filthy "pen pushers" pedling their filth to kiddies! Something needs to be done about these "pushers"! It starts off with pens but can easily lead to pencils and magic markers!
I wouldnt encourage this
You could do yourself some damage and be nominated for the Darwin awards. I hope you're not being for real!
I'm not a spiders rights activist thought btw, I couldn't care a less about them.
That is all!
Mines the rubber trench-coat!
Can we have a "warning, try not to fall off the chair" icon for posts like these in future?
