Eye opener !
"When they were asked about their feelings towards the robot, researchers found they were more positive about the robot when it was helping them."
These guys are proper geniuses. Just where do they take it from? I'd have never come up with that. Breathtaking. Far out!
Our chief weapon is civility...civility and restraint...restraint and civility.... Our two weapons are restraint and civility
"Company Once Known as RIM"
COK as RIM
Since lots of decent languages are available to code for Gnome, lets make the really shitty one official.
Must be because those sparse arrays are so compelling.
When you're obese, diabetic, and lined up to get arteriosclerosis and alzheimers later, you have much to be sad about. Such sadness if often confused with depression.
Who's ma etonian?
You ma etonian, Lots Of Love
I wish to express my contentment.

I really like the name metalprom. Hope it really is called that and wasn't a typo or something.
Kinda like pr0n, and Prom, but also metal! Cool.
It looks as if
... it comes with a built in fun police. Have a martini too many, and they will discretely escort you to your iCabin

Leica should sue them. That would be entertaining.

This made my day
"It's a bit like trying to get fat people into science by putting a doughnut next to a test tube. But it isn't even funny like that."
Confused by the 21% -- I understood 21% meat for 100% entire animal -- have I got it the wrong way round? When buyinig 1kg chicken, I expect to see more than 210g of meat I think, even if the head and feet are still on, giblets included. Even with an animal that's not optimized for being eaten 21% seems low.
sure is samefag in here
Andrew is that you?
Re: The USPTO
AFAICS, they totally don't, and they don't seem to think it's their job to do so. They're more like , 'I dunno, LOL'
Re: Obviously it was telling the truth about climate change....
evidently, it was the Merkins with their X 37
Eric Schmidt, being a big H2G2 fan ...
... really irks me, in a big way. If the incarnation of evil likes the guide, doesn't this mean writing sci fi novels is pointless?
As any right thinking person knows, Eric Schmidt will be among the first up against the wall when the revolution comes.
Re: But I thought
I second that. Also very keen to hear the answer to this question, having seen none so far.
Sirius Cybernetics Corporation
Darn, I should've patented moving the arm in a circular fashion until the flat of the hand loudly contacts the signal-recipient's cheek to indicate that they're WAY out of line. Seems bit late now.
I stand by my opionion that people who attempt to patent gestures will be the first up against the wall when the revolution comes.
A very reasonable article. I have no complaints.
I might have much more to say if comments were turned on for the Andrew Orlowski articles about this topic :)
frikkin FF 7
I was happy when I first read FF7 would use less mem. I've got a slow netbook with a gig of RAM, FF was typically eating most of my ram.
Now that I have FF7, as soon as I have a couple tabs open (like 4 or so), the bloody thing starts to use up most of my CPU cycles for long periods of time. Irritating as hell. First I suspected bad JS on specific pages to be the cause, but after seeing it consistently no matter where I browse, I'm thinking it must be the brower itself.
And I'm not sure it really does use much less ram. It does at the moment, because I don't dare open more tabs. Aaaargh.
Just get the xxx domain instead
... make some extra cash, especially if the name fits well.
If I had dpreview.com, that's def o what I'd do.
A Playmobil representation of The Register playmobile builders in court, presenting a Playmobil representation of themselves creating a Playmobil representation of a woman in court presenting ...
You're doing it wrong.
I can't quite remember which cyberpunk novel I read this in, but isn't the point to swing the rocket back and forth (high five, FORTH fans!) under the balloon until the angle for takeoff is about right?
Swoosh - swooosh - swoooosh - swooooosh - pfffshhhhheeeewww!
First, I was like,
death-threats, ridiculous, then I watched the vid again, and KILL! KILL! KILL! KILL! KILL!
Need larry with horns now
Cowardly IBM traitors!!1! But they know they'll be first up against the wall when the revolution comes. I guess it's back to Commodore BASIC now :(
* Cola *
Indeed, should've been porn for a cola.
Can't help thinking, if Coca Cola were really serious about preventing misuse of their trademark, they should sue cocaine vendors, where such misattribution is rampant. Oh wait ...
to spin that thought further: wouldn't it then be better to issue the guards toy guns, which
a) wouldn't make such an attractive target for robbery
b) wouldn't pose a danger to the public once robbed and supplied with ammo found elsewhere?
probably protection racket
... Task Force?
Reminds me of a Monty Python sketch:
"We can guarantee you that not a single armoured division will get done over for fifteen bob a week."
I wonder if they threatened the guard with harming his tank
i like this guy scientology he's really outspoken and doesn't afraid of anything...
If the Running Dogs of Imperialism really go through with the spying charge -- charging a guy who isn't a Merkin citizen, didn't do the journalism / online publishing ("spying") within their territory, isn't himself in the US, then I suppose in the future anybody, anywhere, who has anything to say about them that they dislike will have to worry about being charged with spying against them.
2 vs 4 strokes
Surprised that I have to point out that, since these are *reciprocating* engines, the total number of strokes is not limited to 2 respectively 4, but rather large multiples of those, such as:
5645386875697852 or even 8769781934538974661478, really depending on how much fuel you can fit in the tank ;-)
obscure? That's ridiculous, even I have heard of it.
Almost as threatening...
... as Mooninites. Should prolly start glueing random stuff to random other stuff just to keep the fuckwits on their toes.
Makes you see pretty quaint activities like "guerilla knitting" in a much more radical light--what would they do if they found such a knit wrapped around a tree or a lamppost? Use a flame-thrower? Nuke it?
