They are trying to recreate the Apple Reality Distortion field
He looks nothing like Steve Jobs. Why not pick an actor with at least a passing resemblance.
It peeves me to see actors cast for well known historical characters who they don't even faintly resemble.
fat vs terrorism
Stand back ! I have a bacon butty and I know how to use it! And I have a drink to wash it down
I must get one for the wife as she always puts her phone at the bottom of her handbag, which seems to be almost soundproof.
Re: well, that's a relief
3) has to be close to the beach for seawater cooling system!
@JetSetJim see Terminator II
perhaps a reference to John Connor's foster father getting the blade from the T1000 as he drinks low fat milk.
Moral: don't drink low fat milk near a terminator. Stick to beer - just hand over clothes and motorbike when asked.
hydrochloric acid will do the trick
I'm going for an underground Faraday cage with diesel generator
Re: Dún an doras
Also a Czech celtic music group.
Icon - Czech Irish music??
grey has nothing to do with it, but I suppose '16 distinct OAM states' doesn't sound cool.
Re: You need random names like XKCD now
Lots of other fruits left.
I suggest Durian - as it stinks so much; to quote wikipedia:
"The smell evokes reactions from deep appreciation to intense disgust, and has been described variously as rotten onions, turpentine, and raw sewage"
has anybody used it ?
Sounds a nice idea, but has anyone here experienced it?
I heard that Japanese women prefer to marry foreigners, as the Japanese salarymen have no work/life balance.
Always brings back bad memories. Please avoid mentioning them
I would prefer Playmobile news readers.
Funnily enough most South Africans (of all skin shades) think Nigerians are crooks.
I even knew Nigerian who warned me about Nigerians!
I feel a touch of the 4 Yorkshiremen coming on
Different perspective from the UK
I have worked in the Netherlands where they DO tax your savings (except if towards a pension)
- If you have a bank account they ASSUME you get 4% return, and then want 30% of that (i.e 1.2%) EVEN if you don't get 1.2% interest on it.
- If you own a house outright they want to tax an hypothetical return that you would get by renting it out. Our tax advice was never to pay off a mortgage, since keeping one we would not own the house and could get mortgage relief on earnings or pensions
The game is totally different for corporations & multinationals.
I am just pointing out that some governments think otherwise about savings.
Re: Just me, or does this look like a star test?
ALMA is an INTERFEROMETER, not a large dish.
It produces images using Fourier transforms of the sampled mutual coherence function
FTC tells 'scan to email' patent troll: Every breath you take, every lie you make, I'll be fining you
scan to email
But if I scan to a (temporary) file , and then email that file would that be covered?
Surely that is what is happening in the background anyway?
Re: Why does humanity deserve to survive?
I'll pick lager
Re: Er no, not yet
They are talking about me BEHIND MY BACK!!
Re: Not just windmill nutters
wind blowing past & through the struts of the mast cause it to vibrate.
You would need to check its resonant frequencies - they could in the infrasound region.
check out some values
I propose Erta Ale for a place for such
also known as the 'Gateway to Hell'. Just parachute them in.
The locals are also known to be hostile to oustiders
Re: Sounds like cloning Solaris containers
Yes they look like clones of the Solaris stuff
- but with more BUZZWORDS (GO, Openstack, Containers)
Re: Power problems?
It would even be a hell of a long way for any form of communication. We could chat with nearby neighbours (if there are any) over a timescale of decades. For them it would take many millenia.
Can be dried and used as a fuel.
Maybe needed soon in the UK (lucky there are still peat bogs).

Re: Olé olé olé
I never saw any good justification for OLE in Powerpoint. Surely an image of the spreadsheet (maybe JPEG or PNG) would be fine. I have never seen anyone use a spreadsheet to actually calculate anything inside a powerpoint presentation.
Something like a Mul-T-Lock maybe?
You mean Carbon fibre–reinforced polymer? As in a carbonized Polyacrylonitrile in an epoxy resin?
Sounds like plastic to me.
Sadly idiots are plentiful; idiots with that sort of cash to throw around less so.
I still think it is a crap business model.
Re: eco-friendly lead-free solder, heh?
Surely it depends on which lead-free solder you use. There are many options and it is up to an engineer to pick an appropriate one and verify the process that solders components to the motherboard. Both are Apple's responsibility.
By the way - anyone know which solder they chose?
Re: After 10 years of waiting
Most are still recovering from shock and concussion after falling off their chairs
Re: Strange correlations
easy: cheese gives you nightmares - nightmares get you tangled in bedsheets!
Its easy to dream up reasons for correlations if you try hard. The trouble is that it doesn't make them correct.
Re: The best weather forecasting...
You need a distributed Beowulf cluster of oldies!
Much cheaper than MET office hardware and will run on tea and biscuits.
Re: Non-MS platforms
There is no interoperable SIP, Skype is a proprietary protocol
Doesn't that date from the 90's ??
that's all for this phone
Re: Akin Descriptor, no?
exposure to sunlight - hardly happens at all to nerds living in mother's basement.
Perhaps mice are the perfect test subject
global versus local
Global is great for commodity stuff but (to get back to the bookcase example) we went to a local firm to get one made to fit in our specific house.
If local business wants to survive they will have to go for tailor-made solutions to specific needs. If not going full-on Jermyn Street at least to alterations to jeans (I can never buy ones that fit).
Re: Elephant in the room
Don't shoot an elephant with anything less than a hunting rifle. It pisses them off.
Ahoy me hearties ; hoist the mainsail and away we hover!

'Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.'
Re: Do they sell...
Perhaps the whole Whizzo Quality Assortment
IT angle: too much software is like the "Spring Surprise"
As William S Burroughs said
sometimes paranoia's having all the facts
"But you know, we were happy in those days, though we were poor."
So the government has an easy fix to increase happiness - make everyone poor!
... oh that explains everything
I have seen several adverts from the last 10 years where I am given no clue about what the product is.
Occasionally it is not even clear what the product name is.
