I have postponed a laptop upgrade for some years now because I didn't want a worse screen.
2 minutes to first stage separation? that's quite a bumpy ride right there.
I'm old enough to remember Britian putting up a satellite with Black Arrow. I wonder how this compares?
I've invented a thing I call a 'transistor radio' that lets you live stream popular webstream stations without the internet. Might Google buy that from me?
Startpage is nice and simple.
yes, surely to goodness they have bought enough stuff down the years?
I was thinking of the Domesday disks...
No save point to restore from?
I don't really care
He made some dosh, and paid his taxes. No news there, surely.
Yes, people have paid rather more per kg for his bubble, but I didn't , so I don't really care.
This is non-news, and we get enough of that from the BBC.
China has competition commissioners? In a communist coiuntry?
The world is too weird for me!
"The beauty and advertising industries need to stop ripping off consumers with dishonest images." should be ' ...stop ripping off consumers by selling worthless rubbish'
Well, Lovefilm doesn't list "Dambusters" but does have "Dangerous Moonlight" and both of Ms Agutter's versions of "The railway children". And "Casablanca" and "Nosfesterau" and All of Alan Plater's Beiderbecke series.
Netflix refuses to discuss what it has unless I join up. So buggerem.
Decision made, I feel.
I've been in a few Samsung shipyards, and they are something Apple could not emulate!
That would be so funny to watch!
I saw my first one yesterday, in a phone shop in Berlin. Well, a plastic empty one under a poster. "What about this" a girl was saying. "You don't want that" the man in the shop said, and pointed her to the Galaxy display.
So do they now regret trying to deceive us all by omitting the 'backlit' from all the supoposedly LED tellies they sold last year?
If the creationists are right and fossils were planted by God to test our faith/as a joke/whatever, the angels who did the Burgess Shale designs must have been drinking something no longer available. Nearly everything in there is horror-movie weird
" Other member states wanted further probing."
You really can't resist, can you?
Keep it up.
Years ago I used to work on seismic survey boats. They all had 'talkback' systems - grab mikes and 100V line speakers all over the shop. People could grab a mike and say "the port tailbuoy is in the water" (or upside down) and people in the recording room could say "we are going to turn now" and everyone knew what was going on.
Then a new ship was planned and specified by an ex-naval commander. He had the speakers, but the only microphone was on the bridge. When challenged, he replied
"People on the back deck are told what to do. They don't have anything to say about it."
It is in no government's interest to fudge the results of this test
It is very much in L^2's interest to put a positive spin.
I thinnk Lightsquared need to realise they've been rumbled, and crawl away to die.
It's a dumb name, anyroadup
They've been making my life a misery for years. Buggerm.
Russian space chief doesn't want to point any fingers, but...
... if he doesn't his arse is on the line
I can't. Believe me I've tried. Both use clever valve timing to get more expansion out of the hot gasses in the cylinder, and both return less poer than you'd expect from the cubic capacity. After that I get brainfade.
Where are the 6-strokes? We should have them by now.
Now, all we need is to observe it
There's not some instrument we can build in a giant circular tunnel under Switzerland is there? One will be going spare in a couple of years.
