El Reg BuzzFelch: 10 Electrical Connectors You CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT!

f1rest0rm

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.

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.

@AC 12:05

"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.

Hello nasty, don't use my music: Deceased Beastie Boy to admen

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).

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.
