I'd love an owl
Even with loads of herbs, red wine & a slow cooker they are a bit woodcock, frankly
where did you last see it?
it is a uniquely female skill.
Mine's the one with a Higgs somewhere in one of the pockets
I bet you live in somewhere super-sophisticated, Like London or Brighton.
Up here in Lincolnshire superdrug sells shampoo and emery boards and that's about it.
to be fair
Whilst I am on your side in this, the greengrocer's apostrophe is becoming so commonplace now that I expect some trendy dictionary compiler to declare it 'correct'.
We should make them insert the letters normally used to denote Carriage Return in front of the name...
The master has it covered
Am I alone
in having not a clue what "angry birds" means?
My $MEGACORP laptop came with Vista. $MEGACORP pay M$ a fee to put XP on top - every year. The cost of Vista was not refunded.
For a few golden years schools with BBC micros & RM mp/m machines taught people to programme.
Nowe the teach them to type with MSword, skipping the use of styles, automatic TOC & master documents.
I blame the educators
Are sales dpt. going to have to do some _work_?
I've not forgiven them for rootkitting people's PCs either
So its an Internet TV so long as you think Sony own the internet.
Like "The Italian Job" there will always be the original.
Why they have to do this over and over again I can't imagine. Do something new, kiddies, and surprise us!
Never mind the web site - they need to post them to the shops!
the expression "Missed the boat" keeps flooding my mind. I wonder why?
Just say NO!
I do hope the British public has a rush of common sense over this. Just DON'T DO IT boys & girls.
I really don't understand this continual bleating that WP7 is a new entrant to the market, so should be cut some slack. IOS and Android were new entrants. WP7 is just a successor product to an existing product, and should surely be AT LEAST as successful as that, given that M$ have a decade's head start over the opposition.
I'm sorry, but if it brays like a donkey and has ears like a donkey and kicks like a donkey and has donkeys for parents, it sure as hell ain't a racehorse.
In 2010 Symbian held pole position with 44.2% of sales,
And, in Gartner mode myself, I predict that in 2014 MicroNokia will have 5% of smartphone sales, and less than 25% of dumbphone sales. And in 2016 Redmond will shut down or sell the corpse of Nokia to Samsung.
"In the long term, Nokia's support will accelerate Windows Phone's momentum"
I don't doubt it. But acceleration can have either a + sign or a -sign.
...Now try it
... on some football fans & a few shots of goals, or on Me & a test match (can you stay in a scanner for 5 days?) or or or
I bet its universal.
Mmmm, Stilton cheese - quick check my brainwaves!
Once again, people trying to sell us what they want to make, not make something we want to buy.
ah, right. NOW I might by an iThing.
You should always assume the blackhats are reading yer stuff. Then you can manipulate them, rather than the other way round.
good luck with that.
> withdrawal of Iran's authority to possess fissionable materials
I'm not sure Armadinijad will care very much.
> it should have consequences
Like the present method of trade embargo? Oh yes, they have oil, don't they?
Are they copying UbontuOne?
Oh no! maybe Cannonical is secretly evil now!
"Apple leases data centre instead of building from scratch"
In other news, Cupertino management buy toilet bowls from builder's merchant instead of making them from raw clay, and they get an electricity feed from a power company instead of hollowing out a mountain to build a geothermal power station.
Microsoft are moving from annoying (very annoying) to dangerous now.
Are there no orbital weapons that need testing?
Enlarging railway tunnels so we can use continental loading gauge double deck trains?
the UKanian response to be different.
Quoting a civil rights web site
"Previously, fingerprints and DNA samples taken would have to be destroyed in the event of the person being acquitted, or if the charges were dropped or not pursued. Following amendments to PACE by the Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001, the police now have powers to retain fingerprints and DNA samples lawfully taken from any person - regardless of whether or not they are subsequently convicted of an offence."
PACE=Police And Criminal Evidence act. Had Mugabwe passed it there would have been howls.
Of course, he won't have 1.48 million dollars.
We had one in the last site office I used to use.
We printed about 30 black/white pages per day, and perhaps one colour. It used to run out of yellow ink twice a week.
Didn't St Alan prove that any programmable could be made to emulate any other?
(could != should)
I agree with the existing comments: HP is going senile.
But after the reluctant, foot-shuffling, deceitful way Dell handled their desktop Linux options I am reluctant ever to deal with them ever again. They do give the impression of being worked by strings from Redmond.
The comparison really is of a Chrysler Neon and a Chevrolet Blazer. I want an Alfa Brera, or a VW Scirocco
how do we know that communists in Northern Italy (say) have neighbours with PLT?
sounds like bollox to me
Can you really patent the idea of people paying when you sell them something?
That'll be Tesco buggered then.
biggest yawn yet.
Look Here, HP
You've got to grow a pair. You need to speculate to accumulate.
Stop selling meeee-toooo laptops & dull desktops. You own some very clever technologies, get them out there. You can't lead by copying.
WebOs - where are the products? Come good on your promises & ship it in every PC. Where are the tablets? Come to that, the phones are pretty rare too.
Printers - stop selling winprint ink fountains, that come with bloatware drivers. Where is the nextgen PCL that would let windows, unix, mac, talk to printers & all enjoy resolution enhancement? interpolated scanning? How about some real innovation? perhaps a coating head that would allow high-quality photos to be inserted into pages? How about printing photos at the same speed as text?
*nix - if anyone can ship non-windows computers, you can
Instruments - what happened to oscilloscopes, RF test gear, data loggers? What about a can-bus interface in every laptop? firewire based data acquisition? zigbee in laptops?
Displays - what about a desktop size retina display? Daylight projectors? Interactive walls?
Innovation - voice & gesture control, dab radio in laptops, pervasive domestic networking with transparent data shadowing? install an application on one HP and it appears on all? domestic and office terminal server systems with zero setup? (homecloud?)
Just make a splash with the webOS tablet, ok?
WW2, stethescope, khaki, etc.
If it's ticking, you have to runnnnnnnn awayyyyyyyyyyyy
"cat brain ... simpler than a human brain"
Obviously written by someone who doesn't have a cat.
The late lamented PCW magazine some 20 years ago postulated a computer for the millenium which was quite like an ipad, except the touch screen would have "negative rheaology" surfaces to provide tactile feedback. And you would be able to fold it in half to pocket it.
They didn't do a bad job of precticting things, even if it has take 10 years longer. Perhaps "negative rheaology" might come along soon too.
Always fancied one of those
-- but I don't suppose it is as good an idea as it sounds
As you say. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS here. The package manager gices a choice of 3.0 and 3.5.
I'm running Nomoroka 3.6.18 here, somehow. But not from the official depositories.
Since I am unlikely ever to go to a football match except as dissosciated atoms long after my death, probably not.
Would they do this for a performance of Lohengrin ? I might be in bother then.
Once we know the names, we could calculate the total IQ. I wonder if it would get into treble figures?
Al Queda porn?
I'd have thought that in this context 'porn' would be copies of "Guns & Ammo".
What on earth is taking HP so long?
They had an W7 tablet ready last year - they could have smudged Webos onto that, pumped it out cheap before christmas & called it a "Technology demonstrator". But here we are nearly a year after the purchase with nowt to show for it. Nowt.
I'll not wait forever, HP. Get on with it!
'ang on, AC
>They'll be like your best friend, but give you oral sex at the same time.
How can someone who gives you Oral Sex /not/ be your best friend?
