He has changed my mind
It is worth listening to world leaders when they have something to say.
I was ambivalent about WikiLeaks, and about Assange, but if that c*nt is opposed to it I am going to become a true believer.
surely it would have been remarkable if Google got a picture of a french street with no-one pissing in it?
Zn is -0.76 and iron is -0.44 on the electrochemical series, so a Zn-Fe battery ought to about do it.
"variable precision floating point unit"
I thought Intel did that once before?
Nothing for men?
I'll get back to the chrome porn catalogue:
Re: Re: Re: Re: Back to basics?
St Pirin's flag. All over Kernow.
or conceivably Saint Petroc's
Didn't Range Rover have a dual view system about 3 years ago? No specs required?
Parallax barrier technology, that was it.
768 high? Not even a dismal 900.
Do buck up chaps!
Did you surreptitiously sneak a reference to Market Deeping, Lincolnshire into the article?
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?
you are /deliberately/ taking the piss, aren't you? I do hope so.
Startpage is nice and simple.

But David Blane is a gitwizard
yes, surely to goodness they have bought enough stuff down the years?
Why does cache need to be flash? surely flash is a persistent store? Would not ram, or even static ram, be better for caching?
I was thinking of the Domesday disks...
No save point to restore from?
You are falling for the hype now. LED backlit, not LED pixels!
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.
I like el reg, and if they can make a few tenths of percent by providing a helpful link I don't care. I rather thought that the world had known about amazon affiliate schemes for half a decade.
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!
People who need water tend to live in places with loads of solar heating possible.
This is the problem.
Panasonic, Sony, Philips all think we will pay a lot for some half-baked subset of what our PCs have done for at least half a decade. Then they imagine we want stereooptics.
I won't and I don't.
And pathetic screen resolution
I had a Mybook with Gb ethernet, and that was true. It transfered files at about 75Kb/s.
Like a fool I bought the Worldbook which was better, but still crap. I don't have one now.
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?
Amazon Fire didn't dent our sales...
Let me finish that for him: "...yet"
My sydlexia must be on tonight.
I managed to read APS-C as 'arse'
I agree about the stupid internal processing. Take pictures with camera. Bugger them about with computer. Still have proper picture somewhere.
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
Mine's the one being worn by someone grinning from ear to ear.
Karl Schwarzschild surely?
>that price point hasn't hindered the take up of the iPad
No, true. But iPads work.
>Anything in the 50s is obviously intended for a bedroom. ;-)
Don't start all that off again!
The HP device is 1,600x900 . And £1200
Thanks but no thamks.

Desperate hacks scrabble for something with 'apple' in it.
Try a strudel, they are more satisfying.
They've been making my life a misery for years. Buggerm.
