Consider my world rocked ...
That was a happy few minutes of not working :-)
And reading the comments has taken more time.
And now I need to make up my own "What about kettle leads FFS" post - with youtube links etc
This could get me through to lunchtime ... Thank you El Reg for making Friday morning bearable.
Banyan Vines anyone?
A strange beat but ahead of ours time for directory services compared to NetWare and MY.
Just me then?
Very enjoyable read ...
Big thumbs up from me for the Maxell ad photo ....
If it helps I'm a "right technology for the situation" sort of guy. Running means MP3s on a shuffle, background music means MP3s via Sonos but actually sitting down and listening to music is done using vinyl and valves and wires and stuff
Re: Stupid, stupid move.
"Do you think Google would be any better? of course not. They're being investigated for monopoly abuse."
What have Google got to do with this? It's about Apple taking the piss with a court judgement in a case against Samsung.
Not to say that Google woul;dn't be just as bad ... and get a proper kicking here as well.
Re: Meyerson predicted Intel's move away from speed to cores?
I love it when the armchair warriers think they know better than the Boffins ....
Re: Very strange behaviour indeed
@Hasham - way to miss the point!
Nobody is complaining about him having or leaving money. The fact is he's left $6m and there will be more coming in from royalties. Why should more be made from advertising by people that didn't create the art if he didn't want it? He has left a good legacy - both musical (to all of us that want to appreciate it) and financial (to his family).
Does anybody have any time or respect for Aonymous and their self aggrandising bollocks?
Thought not ...
This is what they want!
This is why I love El Reg ....
@ Calling all lawyers
Whilst it looks very much like a Phorm-style MITM attack I imagine it's covered in the Ts and Cs ...
Any chance of some facts?
Or would that be being boring?
Please fuck off and stop pretending you are doing anyone any favours ....
These all see rather overpriced .....
One of the reasons for getting my SGS2 is that it clearly isn't an iPhone to look at ....
Always good to see Lester Bangs mentioned ... is it wrong that he is as close as I get to having a hero?
More Please El Reg ..
Another vote for more of this sort of article .... I feel achey of head but think I may just have understood some of this and learnt something new.
But please keep the airbag\Playmobile stuff as well :-)
Good article as someone who cut his teeth on Z80s and 6502s I love stuff like this. Anyone got any suggestions for further reading on microprocessor history? Books, PDFs, URLs, whatever ....
Agree with the above ....
RIM really are screwing any chance this thing has of success.
Another Garmin fan ....
Had a 405 for a couple of years now. Not sure why I'd want to swap it for carrying a phone with me ....
Pronunciation is key ....
Worked at BT when he was there and it was the done thing to pronounce his name anyway you pleased as long as it wasn't the obvious one. There was also a "war room" with his name on ....
I always find any articles about mobile phones are ruined by the tossers that can't see past their own favourites when responding in the comments section .....
Turbo Pascal 4 for me ...
my first experience of losing whole nights to a computer ....
I'll raise a glass later.
Stevie nicks books about kleptomania .....
So a lot of tedious eRanters have again mistaken themselves as democracy .....
Fair play the MP in this one particular case.
One of my current favourites ...."Dean Macey has never married. He is fond of cats."
Loved this ... Reg at it's best :-)
Some users are furious at Microsoft for rolling out a buggy product without fully testing it first.
I use it for checking www.scrabblesolver.net on a laptop I occasionally share with my significant other. I'd hate her to know that, not only is she better than me , but cheating isn't helping.
My pr0n gets checked on an entirely differenct laptop.
A proper piece of Friday work ....
Was going well ...
until the price. Who'd have guessed that would happen with a Cisco product?
Another fine Verity missive ....
I really wish this didn't matter to me .... but it does so thumbs up I guess.
Same from me ...
His articles were always the first I turned to when a new PCW came out.
Seems a tad brave ...
Do they really do mid-air stalls on a first flight?
Would you copy that hideous interface?
Whatever the rights and wrongs I don't fancy Plurk's chances ....
