But are there...
Klingons on the starboard bow.
Sorry. But somebody had to say it.
It'll have to go

Re: Wot, no 3G?
Thank you. Lots of people forget that our comms are not the worst in the world - it just seems like it sometimes.
P.S Dabbsy - Panzers didn't have hubcaps. Maybe on one of those sissy boy US Army things. Never on a manly Third Reich beast ;-)
Re: This is part of the Unicode standard
1F3E9 - Love Hotel - how very polite!
What's that thing (on the Apple emoji layout) between the barber's pole and the chequered flag?
Could that be because...
... emoji originate from Japan? At least that would account for the Japanese(?) characters and stereotypical westerners with their big round eyes.
And who says they are gay anyway? They might me friends.
Nothing wrong with it though - no doubt the religious wankers er, zealots of all description, not to mention the Daily Mail will be on the case. Ironically emailing from their Apple devices.
Don't suppose there's any chance of calling this lot The Jupiter Mining Corporation?
I'll get me bazookoid
Perhaps they're filming...
... another of the Hot Shots films ;-)
RIP Lloyd Bridges
This is not the Tattooine you were looking for
So, it's not a hot desert planet. It's a cold gas giant. Not quite Tattooine then really is it?
Don't understand the logic here
I can never understand the logic behind comments like this. Whatever your choice of TV provider, you'll still have to pay a licence fee. If you choose to go with satellite or cable you'll just pay more to watch programmes that only require a TV and aerial to receive.
Don't forget the BBC does more than just TV. Everyone should listen to Stephen Fry's speech on the subject from a couple of years ago.
That all said and done. I would sooner the BBC spent the money on F1 (which I don't watch) than waste it on drivel like EastEnders or brain numbingly tedious Celebrity Chav Show Jumping On Ice Karaoke.
And whilst we're on the subject of BBC handing out money. I'll decide which charity I'll donate to thank you very much.
I'm no fan of that idiot Ross either.
Camels? Too fast
Donkeys are slower, so it's easier to keep in step.
And they don't spit :-(
But you obviously can care less
Because you took the time and effort to post here
They should have got George Costanza to do the gig
'No one cares'
Are you quite sure about that? The fact that Apple sold millions of the previous model, the world and his/her dog are making a noise about this one and to top it all, you yourself are commenting on a post about it.
Still sure no one cares?

He's right you know
'He's right. People kill people. To be more specific, people with guns kill people.'
As do people with knives, people with swords, people with bombs, people with broken bottles, people with metal bars, people with cars, trucks, planes, hands, feet, planks of wood and countless other 'murder' weapons.
Ban them all!
'Users took to Hotmail forums pleading for Microsoft to restore their cherished accounts '
Don't suppose these cherishers had backed them up then?
It's a free service - what do they expect?
Oh dear, how sad, never mind
It'll have a heart of gold
The ones that don't get invited to the party could always try and invent the Improbable Infinity Drive. As long as someone leaves them some rubber bands ;-)
Actually it's $150 (or £94) according to the details on the front page of the review.
That said it's still a chavvy piece of shite
I can't believe there are still people out there who think digital watches are a pretty neat idea ;-)
A sweaty one in a Lidl leisure suit as well
Apart from that how does Bebo waffle stand up against Vogon poetry?
What bloke wil use those names other than for ordering ink for a printer?
Isn't that an iPhone?
You let them off lightly Sir!
Do you mean to say that mineral water that's been hand bottled by elven virgins and chocolate from rare uncultivated rain forests has nothing to do with computers?
B'Arking up the wrong tree?

Plenty of room on C deck
I'll get me towel
Not bad though . . .
. . . for a gadget that people like yourself turn out in droves for just to hate.
No, I don't want one. When it's got to about v4 and I'm due a new laptop (I reckon on 3 to 4 years for this new MacBook), then I might go for one. It will (by then) suit my needs and will be a lot easier to haul about than a laptop and providing it syncs to my desktop (shouldn't be a problem with MobileMe, Evernote and Dropbox) then I'll have everything I need. YMMV.
I might get one for my Mum. It runs Mac OS (she tried Windows and gave up). It does email, web browsing and she can look at pictures of her grandchildren, but the main thing is that it's light enough for her to carry it about. As long as we can get some sort of non slip case. She'll be happy with it. It does the job. What's the problem?
Well said Sir!
And the 'drums' are better than Nick Mason's original efforts!
But you couldn't resist
Giving us your valued opinion. You even read a story about this 'pointless device' and made the effort to post.
So it's not exactly pointless is it? Deep down inside you are just burning up with jealousy/envy/greed/desire/hatred.
I bet you really want one but are too scared of looking like a fanboi after mouthing off to both of your friends about how pointless it is.
You're new here, aren't you? Oh very yes
Who booked the band?
Rubber one that is
Or is it not that sort of party?
And her box?
Did you clean it?
Well said that (anonymous) man
Exactly. Far too may sites don't play properly on anything other than IE.
And what about corporate intranets? We are still on XP (and not likely to change anytime soon) and are tied to IE. We've only just discovered IE7 FFS!
I'd love to try FF or even Chrome (doesn't seem too shabby) but have to endure IE at work, which reminds me - back tomorrow after a weeks half term holiday. I bet Outlaw will be full of shite emails as well when I log in :-(
Pint 'cos it's nearly Sun lunchtime \o/
One giant leap backwards for mankind
You owe me a new keyboard ;-)
Newton in the background
Looks like an OMP to me. Model H1000. Still have a stylus for one of those somewhere, and a PSU for that there eMate.
As for the tablet - fake or real that seems a pointless piece of kit. You'd have to buy one of those geeky messenger bags and pretend your 20 years old (that'll work for me, I'm 52) or walk around all day with it in your hand. Does it come with a free t-shirt that says 'I'm a posing twat, please rob me'?
Very impractical. My iPhone pretty much does it all now anyway, although a bluetooth keyboard wouldn't go amiss. For full internet use my iBook suits me as well. This is one piece of Apple kit I won't be buying.
Real or fake, it's a turkey.
