last thing we need are new laws written by people who have little understanding this subject. leave things be - the problem of trolling, revenge porn et al is mostly all media-hype anyway. in the grand scheme of things, and with the state of the world today, worrying about trivial matters (relatively speaking) and bringing in yet more legislation to appease the likes of mumsnet would be a huge mistake IMO.
i feel exactly the same - still rocking an older samsung 720p TV which does me absolutely fine. let's face it - it's only a TV. and most stuff on TV is shit anyway.
Looks suspiciously like the hole down into the ice made by the Predators in AVP if you ask me.
you're very obviously one of them.
This is an excellent phone, be in no doubt
Despite having some misgivings after reading some average reviews of this phone from the usual tech sites, I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. This is a fantastic phone - it definitely feels "premium", has a knock-out screen which has wowed everyone who has seen it, great sound (through the built-in speaker and also when headphones are plugged in - loud and detailed, lots of range and dynamics). The look, feel and operation of this phone is as good as any I have had (I upgraded from an HTC One and have previously has iPhone 3G, 4 and 4S) if not better. The camera is superb - the automatic macro feature in particular is very impressive. The rear mounted buttons work a treat. Would not hesitate to recommend this - if you're looking for something a bit different, that not everybody has, go for the LG G3, you will not regret it - don't listen to any of the negative stuff about build quality, or the screen being "too sharp" (wtf)... it's bloody good all round.
calm down dear.
just want to say the "just a phone" argument annoys me every time I see it. it's not just a phone is it. it's a small pocket computer that does a whole host of things outside making phone calls. were this device only to have the ability to phone people up and cost Â£500+ then yes, it would be vastly overpriced. as it (and any other smartphone)does an awful lot more than that though, you're argument just makes you sound either ignorant or simply trying to argue for arguments sake...which makes youlook like an idiot.
improve my shag
sod filming it, i want to see an augmented reality app that will make my partner look like megan fox.
I think I'm pretty much done with the internet. It's ruined. Party's over, pick up your coats and go home. We used to get on without it, I guess we can again. It's a terrible shame and kind of ironic, that the internet was the architect of it's own demise - sites like mumsnet etc would not have existed without the 'net but have brought about the destruction of the very ideas on which it was founded. What can I say - unfortunately the vast majority of people on Earth are reactionary idiots - time and time again has been humanity's downfall.
When I get the choice, I'm going to set my filter to maximim to appease Big Brother, then unplug the cable and go back to using my computer for word processing, art and playing (offline) games. Hell I might just get my old Speccy out and start using that.
"knives, and stabbing weapons"
fuck worrying about guns, they're too complicated. bladed objects on the other hand...
say ten times quickly
piece of piss.
where's my prize?
Re: "Falling sales at BT's global services division"
BT very bad etc etc
Change the record mate.
er, i'm not an idiot or anything, but can someone explain to me what Sociology actually is? What are the aims of the profession? What are they hoping to achieve with this "Sociology"?

when do we get spherical phones?
can't help thinking that any structures or tools etc created by these bots would be extremely prone to falling apart at the drop of a hat if all that's holding the various parts together are a few magnets. surely to be used for any practical purpose you need to ensure that any shape or structure created by these bots is as rigid and strong as a solid object?
all this van allen belt stuff just makes it appear increasingly unlikely anyone could have got past them and survived. i'm sure it's possible and one day soon-ish humans will breach this boundary, but it just doesn't seem very likely we could have done it prior to now.
i need a definitive answer on whether GTAV has multiplayer and whether the reviewer has had a chance to look at it yet.
who the hell are you? you come into every smartphone thread and start banging on about your vintage nokia and how it still works. you've spouted the same crap about it working in "dead zones" about 5 times that i've seen. shut the hell up mate, nobody cares.
what a couple of fucking numpties.
try blowing your nose immediately after you get off - it's quite alarming.
I think travelling into central london and back again every day on the tube (as I do) must be the equivalent of smoking 20 B&H a day.
who can I sue about this?
dodgy bastards. ban the website AND the play.
they must be in stitches about how so many people are likely going to be lining up to get their fingerprints on the NSAs records by using a shiny new iPhone 5S. next retina scans, after that full DNA profileing from a breath sample. to whit: a comprehensive database of billions of people - not just a database of numbers and text, but a database of genetic information. i bet TPTB can't fucking wait.
sounds like Kinnan's got it exactly right to me.
4K is old hat
it's all about 16K resolution for me.
i think it's fantastic that this watch comes with a pedo-meter. invaluable in this day and age, especially if you work at the BBC.
what about all the young lady chavs called Champagne, Chardonnay, Lambrini etc?
TOR: does exactly the opposite of what it says on the tin.
this is the element supposedly powering the flying discs secretly kept at the S4 facility. something to do with the amplification of the gravity A wave apparently.
doesn't look like a real phone
looks like a case around an iphone 4/s... why are there like, huge gaps between the camera opening and whatever is inside the case? if this is real the build quality looks atrocious.
Re: Wot ? Google went offline ?
lol AltaVista doesn't exist any more, stop trying to be all "alternative".
it won't be gold enough!
all you people who think it's going to be like, shiny and gold are wrong. wrong i tell you!
it will be a light burnished gold-ish hue if anything, and matte.
i see a lot of black people wearing these.
i wonder why that is.
clive sinclair is awesome
that is all.
i'm so hip i have difficulty seeing over my pelvis
is apple even hip any more? like, my dad's got one. i haven't. i'm cooler than my dad for all intents and purposes. OR AM I?
Re: Surprised? Shouldn't be.
so you're a baby boomer then...ie one of the parents of generation x. so you're saying you're also narcissistic? i don't get it.. is this a good thing then? what's your point?
Re: Surprised? Shouldn't be.
jesus....how old ARE you?
Unfortunately the phrase "think of the children" is now illegal in case you actually do think of the children you filthy pervert.
what a load of crap. going to be a total fad i'm telling you. i predit they'll be popular for 6 months, then end up in a drawer never worn again and the market will collapse.
wearable tech ain't gonna be what people think it is.
if you've ever used TOR for anything illegal
everybody DOES hate Apple. this is not a new thing.
the specs are a bit shit aren't they?
Re: So don't shop while at work?
what? yes I do go shopping on my lunch break sometimes. so do an awful lot of other people. what the hell do you do on your lunch break? sit in fear at your desk looking out for "suspicious characters"? are you this guy's boss?
Re: What about improving existing services?
good luck with that
this look hasn't actually been "in" for about 15 years anyway. the only idiots who dress like this (in the UK at any rate) are absolute chavs who still think Dr Dre's album "The Chronic" is the height of cool. i would imagine it's the same in the US...
Re: your arrogance remarkable .
don't do it apple
fuck the iwatch man, will be a huge mistake for apple. i think wearable tech generally ain't gonna be the "next big thing" everyone thinks it is... beware!
