Trouble with gift horses is that they still defecate in your lawn.

Re: Maybe Fogg needs a ruling of a different kind
I think that anybody who says they are half-responsible for starting facebook should be ashamed of themselves.
That goes for Zuck too.

Iceland knew what to do with their bankers!
Crooks spent $150,000
This is clearly very organized crime - or maybe government 'black op'?
Ivory Coast are also into android
Their tablet has local spec to resist water splashes, humidity heat & dust. The point is that with android you can pick the features that matter locally & save costs on stuff that are less important to the bottom end of the market.
It maybe 'landfill' - but if your market is at the 'landfill' level it fits perfectly.
'Exciting' is not necessarily good for storage; 'reliable', 'flexible', 'cheap' are.
He will probably take the camera too:
So don't spend much on it whatever you choose -or MAKE IT LESS CONSPICUOUS; Why are these cameras so big when it seems totally unnecessary
Of course expect anything loaded to the cloud to be leaked immediately, so make sure you know when it is off (or just cover it)

Yes, the New Zealanders & maybe even Tasmanians (lucky Devils) might see them.

The kids in your family will all be singing along to Heinrich Ignaz (especially 'Laudate, pueri, Dominum')

I wish I could give you many upvotes for the Windows-Celine Dion analogy. It should become a new meme!

But they are trying hard to catch up.
Re: and best of all ...
Ant size is a bit vague. Some African Driver ant queens get large (more than 2 inches).
By the way - don't mess with an army of them, They are called Driver as everything has to get out of their way.
There is always somewhere to keep your phone - but the camera function would find it too dark
If I am near other people:
- less chance of cross-contamination (I type to your machine, you type to mine)
- less chance of data / displays leaking (security!)
Having sampled TV in several countries I can conclude that most TV is abysmal.
Even so there are a few BBC programs that I would pay to watch when abroad, but simply don't get the chance.

Modelling the economy
I am surprised that we still don't have any reliable model of the economy where we can test out the effects of changes (whether made by politicians - like taxes, or external like world commodity prices). A good model should of course be able to model what has happened in the past before attempting the future.
The fact that many fund managers do no better than random picks suggests that we have no bloody idea about how markets work
Until we do have a reliable model we should tell politicians to LEAVE IT ALONE.
all with your own face?
Sounds like you escaped from Rimmerworld
Re: Hang on, am I too old for this?
Trouble is: it is so hard to get the butterflies
I would have a severely negative baggage allowance
However if I were running an airline I would split up any group of children so that no two sit next to each other; I remember how some boys would always misbehave at the back of the bus on any school trips.
@Sir Runcible Spoon
To be honest when I saw the list I had no idea who 99% of them are; not that I have any idea now of what these 'celebrities' are celebrated for.

But people have different aesthetic feelings; My taste might be more dadaist, and yours more Vermeer.
Similarly some perfumes irritate my nose.
What is 'nice looking' is not a universal value; some people don't even like Paris - see icon

I see what you did there!
I heard of a scheme which used a minimum wait time of about 0.5s (assumed the fastest anyone could type a reasonable password) and doubling that for every failed attempt.
Does anyone know if this is in use anywhere?
Must be a reference to Finian's Rainbow. Anything with Fred Astaire & Petula Clark as 'Irish' pursued by leprechauns
What about SL4A, qpython and ruboto for your android?
Learning some scripting language on a phone is quite possible
To be a 'Celebrity' you have to be a sort of narcissistic twit. It goes with the territory.
Occasionally (very rarely) these celebrities can act or perhaps sing.
Re: Trust your data to the cloud they said
'safe' means it is never, ever, going to be lost 'convenient' means anyone can find it.

Maybe it is related to availability of receivers of stolen goods (fences to you and me)
- people usually steal stuff for money. If there is no market it isn't interesting.
People will steal the strangest things if they can sell them
