Movie, TV ads annoying? You ain't seen nothin' yet

LinkOfHyrule
Joke

Re: The ads don't work

Sorry, but the title of your post reminded me of a song...

"The ads don't work,

They just make you worst,

And I know I'll see your face again" hahaha

Joking aside, how long will it be till these advertising dudes come up with vocal changing "solutions" to change the lyrics of well known songs in real time in order to flog us sugar water and other crap?

Software glitch WIPES OUT listings of 10,000 eBay sellers

LinkOfHyrule
Alert

Re: Effectively another "cloud" failure.

I agree. Ebay or Amazon or anything similar for that matter, should be treated as a "bit on the side" business opportunity. It's too much of a risk to rely upon some huge mega cloud corporation for your humble business selling second-hand china tea cups with Beatrix Potter animals painted on them! The days when ebay was the saviour of small mail order businesses are long gone if you ask me, Now its all about squeezing as much from sellers as possible and if it goes on the wonk for a bit - fuck ya!

This is a good idea by El Reg - maybe you could develop the idea further into a best-selling travel guide - something like - "Reg Round Blighty - by J. R. Paris"

Twitter patents sending messages, promises not to sue everyone

Re: mostwanteddomains.com

Crapline.com eh? Not so much a social network more of a rival to Direct Line insurance or maybe Greenline coaches - I could imagine Crapline would do a roaring trade on the busy Bracknell-Slough-Heathrow-London route!

Back on topic - shitter.sh/it could work marketing wise as the homepage. It's poetic too as its a shit with a slash midway through!

Go for it I say! I promise to sign up and spread the shit amoung my friends and family! I think you're on to a winner here! Looking forward to being one of your first "shitizens"!

Re: I'm gonna start up my own social network

Now that's the social network for me!

I suggest a brown colour scheme and the logo should be a cartoon turd. Instead of "tweets" you could have "farts" and instead of the so called "fire hose" you should have the "Shitter sewer overflow".

If they do sue and you don't have the money to fight it - negotiate with them to buy you out - they could merge the two services together and create "Bird Shit" - the social network that drops 160 character messages directly on your head from the cloud!

Groupon deal spam slapped by Australian regulator

Paris Hilton

"This is an urgent appeal on behalf of the Groupon fund for starving fish.

As a loyal customer, we urge you to consider the fate of the many hundreds of little Japanese fish that live locally to you in beauty salons, who are desperately hungry and in dire need of human foot flesh on which to feed upon. For just 50% of the normal cost, you could do your bit for fish kind and feed these desperate fishies while at the same time removing dead foot skin and revitalising your lowest of extremities."

Re: eight drives every second...etc

It used to be said years ago that if you brought a car built on a Friday afternoon in the factory, it would be unreliable and not up to standard. Maybe the 8th drive of each second comes out dodgy too! They will have to state date stamping them with not just which year and month they were built the fraction of a second too!

Best Street View Oopsie EVAR! - May be NSFW, but blurred in the right places...

Re: Classic!

Actually that lass in Manchester, looking at it more closely, as you do, I'm not sure she actually is smoking a ciggy. It looks more like she is pointing. In fact it looks as if she's pointing to one of the nearby railway viaducts and lecturing the punter on the history of Manchester's railway infrastructure! I guess when you work in such historic surroundings you start to pay attention to the local history and take an interest!

I didnt realise that street was in Vulture territory - shame its not really called that, I can imagine you guys having offices above Corner Hoe Street for some reason!

Re: Anon Coward votes not counting towards pretty badges

I like the thumbs up'n'down, its fun to monitor how my corny jokes go down with the forum readers who can be bothered to click. I must admit though, my 5:1 ratio of up to down does make me wonder at times that I cannot surely be that funny - I think people are less likely to click on thumbs down than up unless you say something really dumb.

I wonder if an ignore button will be a good or bad thing for my "score"? hmmm

No.10 guru: UK tech scene is AN EXPLODING CHEESE

Re: A tesco value processed cheese slice.

Totally off topic but you can get Tesco Value Stilton now - Its obviously the same old Stilton you know and love (it would be illegal to sell it if it wasnt) but its wedge is somewhat crumbled at the apex you could say, hence they are flogging it off a bit cheaper.

This is actually not one of my dumb joke comments either. And yes I know it's off topic but seeing as the topic is a bloke who uses shit cheese metaphors its a valid point to make I feel!

Paris cos I heard she smells Stiltony.

I hope he left trailing behind him a wheelie suitcase full of broken Amstrad Sky Boxes and Animatronic Alan Sugar head prototypes, then hopped into the back of a waiting black cab and drove through the streets of London moaning about how he's the best but was set up by his team-mates!

I wonder if now he's gone, Des is going to re-brand from YouView to ScrewView and to use a phrase made famous by Diane Abbott - "Pornify" the platform offering somewhat?
