That's got a lot of windows,
and no sign of a workbench. Are you sure it's a shed?

and no sign of a workbench. Are you sure it's a shed?
These Star Wars analogies are all very amusing, but we won't be laughing when Grand Moff Hagel obliterates a small South American nation to prove a point.
Or have they skipped that part and gone straight for the gritty reboot?
Can some enlightened person tell me what this thing does that a pedometer doesn't? Other than come with a bluetooth dongle and an app?
If it's going to have "Kinect’s gesture recognition" to track "finger movements", I'll be flicking it the Vs at the earliest opportunity. Maybe they can programme it to scurry away in terror if you roar at it?
that Google generally have a fair idea of where their users are (unless said users are making an effort to mask their location data). That being the case, it surely wouldn't be beyond Google's means to only show ads appropriate to the location (their whole business runs around targetting advertising, anyway - the ads I see from Google are generally UK-centric, so the must be doing this already), with a defult to no ads if your location is one of which they are ignorant the local laws (ok, Google showing no ads is probably pretty unlikely).
This sounds like it would fit their "don't be evil" mantra.
It'll be shit on desktop, too.
He wants credit for Avatar? He must be looking for a big settlement if he wants a turd of that magnitude in his portfolio.
There's a version on the Google Play store, from EA, that is absolute gash. All I remember from the original is smooth animation and dying on spikes (much like Another World), so maybe the Android version is actually quite accurate, and I just don't miss the "die repeatedly until you learn the sequence of moves that will allow you to not die" mechanic that dominated games in my childhood (Ghouls & Ghosts, anyone?)?
It's still a classic, though (as are Another World and Ghouls & Ghosts)!
Yup, utterly agnostic about the whole lot, teapot included (not to mention the dragon in your garage). None of it is worth losing any sleep over.
Never begrudge a man his vices, except perhaps if that man's particular vice is shooting pork-coated bullets at what he perceives to be terrorists.
The law? I thought the Church of England was the spiritual home for we agnostics.
I don't take said beliefs to be likely, much less certain, but have long since accepted that, since I can't prove anything either way, I'm free not to worry about it. It's highly liberating, and I would recommend it to everyone (except I won't, as that would be prosletising!).
but even I can see that the "HAM in MoHAMmed" line is bound to offend (as is the little piggy mascot).
Just because you can make offensive jokes (and you can, that's free speech) doesn't mean you should go out of your way to upset people.
I love it when atheists (sorry, antitheists) lecture Christians/Muslims/Jews/etc. about how to be a proper Christian/Muslim/Jew/whatever.
Any pointers on how I can be a better agnostic?
While we're at it, this moon I acquired HAS NO STICK!
Seriously, though, all the facebook ads that I see are for dating websites, too (despite my profile showing that I am married). Given that I don't bother with "like"-ing much on facebook, it clearly doesn't know much about me, and so the default profile for "man on the internet" must be "can't get a girlfriend".
but it tastes like shit.
I get most of my news from the BBC (primarily the Today programme), and find it to be very well balanced, grilling all of their interviewees, regardless of political colour.
The comedies tend to lean towards the Left, but that's inevitable when mocking those in authority, as those in authority tend to lean towards the Right.
"extreme left wing bias"? Pull the other one - it summons the train to the gulag.
I think you'll find that taking an interest in puppies, as part of your selection criteria, is going to put you on the wrong end of a harassment complaint.
So, where does the law stand on making empty threats?
"the technology is right it's just the users who are wrong" approach - Apple are very protective of their patents.
Holding Google to be somehow responsible for these images, seems like a massive cop-out, to me. Then again, I wouldn't be massively surprised to learn the the UK government (or the Daily Mail) doesn't really know how the internet works.
Unlike this beige goo, I would happily live on Pink Wafer biscuits. At least until the malnutrition set in.
My kitchen doesn't have a "delete" button.
Arnie never really left the silver screen. Probably about time he did, though. "Triplets"? Who's the third - Adam Sandler?
But not a snake.
and that we all need food, wouldn't the PETA-types be best served by badgering* MEPs and the like so that vaccinating cattle against TB doesn't result in the beef being classified as unfit for consumption?
"What The NSA Did For Us".
Plus, I'd imagine the expense of send Police/Ambulance/Fire to every little shunt, will soon rack up.
All in all, this strikes me as a well intentioned, but ultimately bone-headed idea.
A bowcaster, surely?
I'd buy that (for the obligatory dollar).
Being able to run off one side of the screen, and reappear on the other, was a killer feature, and is sadly absent for all subsequent football sims.
Pass the assault rifle, the herd needs thinning...
No, me neither. Bloody kids.
Oh, alright then, The Cloud is a catch-all term for applications and services provided on distributed systems, as well as certain implementations of multi-site redundant server virtualisation, and file storage. Saying that something is "in the cloud" is roughly analogous to saying that it's "on the internet" - both terms are vague, but imply that "it" (be it a file or an application) is in a location away from the device, and accessible via the user's internet connection. The Cloud is also the brand name of a WiFi hotspot provider, but this is usually not what someone means when the refer to "The Cloud".
Bleh. That was a mouthful.
Quick, everyone down The Pub (but don't specify which one!).
but then I grew up.
Trolling aside, mandatory online, and no 2nd hand games, makes the XBoxOne sound repellent. The idea that you could use your credentials on a friends machine, to play for a whole hour, gave me a good laugh, though.
It's a catch-all term for remote storage, and also a specific brand on public Wi-Fi. Calm down.
I have a Henry Hoover at home. He's not really a Hoover, though. Bet that makes you cross!
Sounds like you're alright. Pull the ladder up, Jack!
A time machine is just what Broughty Ferry needs.
(and many that I've never heard of). All immaterial, though, as Bruce Campbell is on the list, and so I am compelled to vote for him, on the grounds that HE'S BRUCE CAMPBELL.
Actually, he might make for a pretty good Doctor. He might also make for a terrible Doctor, but who cares? HE'S BRUCE CAMPBELL.
I rather like Bruce Campbell.
as there's something indescribably wrong with the keyboard on my HTC Desire, post ICS update. Quick mention of the Hacker's Keyboard, which sees use on my Nexus 7 for Terminal sessions.
Beans on toast = Good
Marmite on toast = Superlative
Cheese on beans on toast = Like eating vomit
Cheese on Marmite on toast = Wrong
Beans on Marmite on toast = OH DEAR GOD, WHAT HAVE I DONE?!
Fine. Here you go:
1. Turn on grill
2. Whilst grill heats, put bread in toaster and brown slightly more than you intended
3. Burn hands whilst retreiving toast
4. Add sliced (grated, if you're an idiot) cheese* to one side of the toast**
5. Place toast, cheese side up, under the grill until it*** melts
6. Retreive toast, slice if desired, burn mouth on first bite.
*Yellow cheese is traditional, but reds can be used; nothing crumbly (they don't melt properly) and nothing veiny (the results will be bordering on the inedible); bendy cheeses are a possibility, but the results can be strange; all said, best stick with Cheddar.
**You may wish to preceede the cheese with some other toppings/sauces (a slice of ham is a good way to ensure that all the toppings slough off during the first mouthful) - my personal prefence is sliced chicken and jalapenos; you may also with to follow the cheese with a splash of worcestershire sauce (anything else would be an abomination).
***If anything other than the cheese is melting, you should probably lay off the microdots.
"Having a camera that isn't totally shit", is one of my criteria for phone purchases. Being able to upgrade that to "having a camera that's actually pretty good" would be more than welcome.
but I'm going to ADD IT IN CAPITALS.
Never change, Eadon. The forums would be all the poorer for it.
A cup of tea wouldn't hurt, either.
I seem to remember the north-European beauty delivering the weather report whilst dressed in evening wear. Proper classy.
Were they advocating a boycott of Apple products, or just suggesting that people but them elsewhere?
with a clock? 4 icons in the launcher? Candybar form, with rounded corners? A coloured back?
I take it that everyone from Apple to Samsung, through HTC, Nokia, and all the rest, will be lining up to murder this in court?
I do hope not. A decent, budget smartie can only be a good thing.
