Hows about you pass the comments in this thread to whoever gave you the press release, and then tell us what they said.
Still with the Vtech play computer screens
768? 1080? 768? Double those and I might be interested.
And then there is Schiphol.
If you go from non-Schengen to Schengen space, you have to open the laptop to prove it has a keyboard and has not been hollowed out.
If you go the other way they don't want you to do that.
Re: Oh the old petrol station turn mobile phones off drama lama
The cell phone ban is, I suspect, left over from the CB radio ban.
Because some early electronic devices (are you listening Dresser) could be zeroed just by keying a 25W transmitter next to them, garages put up spurious "transmitting can cause an explosion" notices, and the meme appears to have stuck.
'course, the transmitters were not the problem in the first place....
This needs a proxy in it too. Lots of hotels charge for access and tie the password to a mac address. If you could make this device the mac address it would be very convenient too.
There is some wooliness in most things on that list, ut when we come to
"Groupon applies refunds policies and cancellation rights in accordance with the Distance Selling Regulations."
That seems to have been a demonstrable breach of law that should have been prosecuted, not discussed.
on a donkey?
Just the one?
Poor bloody beast.
I sat opposite him on a train back from the Liverpool garden festival. I am less than svelte, he is, well you know. The carriage wrecked a wheel bearing under where we were sitting.
With Satre, the vehicle in front controls its followers
And, yes, the vehicle in front will be driven by a bulgarian halfwit trucker who has not slept for 78 hours, consumed several bottles of strong lager to keep awake, and will cheerfully turn down a railway line because he does not understand his satnav.
good idea, bad price
I'd pay 25-30p for an hour's television, not a peculiar amount like that.
I want the Jag estate or/and the Morgan electric.
Not that I can afford either, but I can dream, can't I?
Yes, the Bentley SUV is wretched.
"The team is now looking at practical applications"
Make a tiny submarine and send Stephen Boyd & Raquel Welch through someone's bloodstream?

I have driven a petrol hydraulic car It was french (wocab) - either a renault or citroen - made in the 1950s. It had a constant speed engine, a variable stroke hydraulic pump, and variable stroke hydraulic motors in each wheel, Pump and motors had swash plate variable stroke mechanisms, operated by cables from the 'throttle'. and it could (with the crude swash plate limiter unscrewed) go as fast backwards as forwards.
The one I drove also had a 25 litre drum of replacement hydraulic oil and a suitcase full of replacement rubber seals in the boot. It never went a week without popping something and dumping all the oil on the road in milliseconds (that's what pumps do!).
the iPurse - contains money that can only be spent on iThings.
the iNurse - robotic child minder shaped like Steve Jobs, with a calming voice that says "nanny knows best" whenever signs of of intelligence break through.
the iCurse - a portable device for practitioners of witchcraft.
the iTerse - speech synthesiser that reduces whole sentences to bad-tempered single words.
the iWorse - USA's next president.
Fine, as long as you can make it hover in mid-air so I can use both hands on it.
all been said
I came here to comment on the headline, but feel I have nothing left to insert.
But they can't be trusted.
I've been paying a premium for a premium service for some years, and discover they have invested nothing at all, not even in LLU.
I'm going to sidegrade to a cheapo service now, it won't be any worse.
"Virgin Media, the UK's dominant pay TV operator"
I'd have thought that was Sky.
But I don't watch TV, so what do I know?
I'm all for it.
We can stop worrying about global warming, running out of resources, and the effects of big motors, and have one hell of an extinction party instead.
Re: I wonder...
The more massive you become, the more likely virginity is to be conserved?
Bit of multipath going on there, I reckon.

And, of course, they are Hertzian waves anyway
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.
