Re: What is it with Americans
'It'll be fine unless a Trenco or a zwilnik's bomb gets under the leading edge...'
Well, you just cut in your 'Bergs and float away on the wind!
Subtle, very subtle
I like the way this comment section currently has a sidebar advert featuring a picture of Pele, who just happened to be in advertorials for testicular cancer in the UK.
Black or dark blue all over with a pair of white or silver parallel stripes from front to back.
Everyone knows that type of paint job gives a small Citroen or Ford Taansit van an extra 50BHP, so painting Vulture 2 in the same style is almost certain to get it ging supersonic!
"Apple couldn’t immediately be reached for comment"
Because they either didn't want to answer your call for fear of being electrocuted, or because their phone was on fire. Take your pick.
Mine's the one with the semaphore instructions in the pocket.
'Texas Instruments marketing department had managed to cripple the 99/4a to the point it was almost unusable'
You mean putting faulty processor chips in them which would occasionally cause random reboots when you were trying to type in or run a program? Not really the marketing department was it?
...and 'other causes of death'
Does that also include plane crashes and DIY accidents involving power tools?
'rare and expensive helium'
Last time I checked, helium was the second most abundant element in the universe after hydrogen.
It's not really rare then, is it?
Do you mean the email confirmation of your Dominos pizza order, or the cold, inedible, circular piece of shit in a box someone turns up at your front door with 2-hours later?
Beer, because you'd have to be pissed to even consider ordering a Dominos pizza.
Re: Odd, they can manage it in kitchens
"So how come the office designers can't manage it?"
Because a spare socket block to match the nice, new office desks from 'Dick Turpin Office Furniture' is usually priced at something completely insane like £184.39 + VAT. That is why.
Beer, because it's cheaper than socket blocks from an office furniture company!
Re: 'By Royal Appointment' ?
No, it would be a banana one...
Okay, I'm going.
Didn't say how he went. Must have been a stroke then...
Mine's the one with the Accurist watch in the pocket.
Run that by me again...
'The iPhone's new coating material makes it prone to scratches...'
So this time 'holding it wrong' will only scratch it?
That is all.
Re: It's my understanding
@David Neil - 'recycled old Luftwaffe aerial shots'. That made me spit my coffee out! Nice one.
And the Luftwaffe did find Coventry right where we told them it was. At night. Nuff said.
Why the surprise?
So Apple remove a third-party app which works fine and replace it with their own version which is not fit for purpose and then everyone complains. Why are people complaining? This is not a new thing for Apple to do.
If you buy Apple, you buy into their walled garden and accept what they give you. Stop complaining and suck it up.
Horses for Courses
There is no right or wrong here as both size devices work for different situations.
And, if Apple do release a 7" tablet then some people will buy it regardless even if it costs more than a good-spec 10" Android tablet. That's their choice.
However, what happens when people have trouble hitting web links or buttons on the screen and Apple subsequently assert that they are 'touching the screen wrong'?
Golden rule of gambling
Never bet more than you can affored to lose.
OK as a proof of concept...
But while it's connected can you still:
Make & receive a phone call?
Send & receive text messages?
Synchronise your emails?
Surf the Web?
Play Angry Birds?
And what happens if the phone battery goes flat or you go in a tunnel or built-up area and lose the GPS signal? Will the car stop automatically or just keep going straight on and plough into a wall or queue of people at a bus stop?
Can't see this happening TBH.
Paris, because she can't drive a nail in wood either.
That is all.
"sold in outlets situated inbetween a Stella-stocked cash-and-carry and a KFC"
In Wigan it's in between KFC and MaccyD's (Google street view will confirm). Oh, the irony...
Mine's the one with the pockets full of sweets from Poundland across the road.
What? More Yahoo adverts???
Just how many more ads can Yahoo ram into their webpages and webmail?
Re: ..said to have prevented legitimate callers..
"Caller: Well the TV guide says they'll be showing the sequel next week - is that a threat?"
Only if it's that paragon of misery called EastEnders...
I am, and even as the alpha version it's better than WebOS.
FAIL, because HP had a golden opportunity and - apart from the Touchpad device itself - completely messed up everything else to do with it.
Pigs In Spaaaaaaace
Ok, I'm going now.
Re: No, thanks.
Agreed. And having seen the vast amount of utter garbage and crap posted by a number of my work colleagues on Facebook, I'd shred their CV immediately and put their email address in the Junk Senders list.
Re: Um ...
I think they meant to say "slick standard CyanogenMod feel"...
