Beware Geeks bearing gifts.
You are witnessing history.
This takes us back to the time when high altitude bombers, fighters and ballistics missiles could not be reliably defended against.
Yes, the tactics are different, but the results are just as terrifying. Only railguns, energy weapons or highly accurate missile will be able to defend against this.
Drone, drone, drone your boat
Gently in the sea
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
The drones are come for thee
(so sue me)
Many other major world cities are also sinking.
Just what did the super geniuses think would happen when you add several million tons of steel and concrete to the scale?
I hate Unity, When I ran Ubuntu, I used the old Gnome 2 desktop.
I still hate Unity.
So is Gnome 3.2 more like a traditional desktop or is more like Unity?
Because grumpy old men have seen this snake oil fail thousands of times.
The only rich person in this world who seems to be doing anything practical at all for the average person is Elon Musk. Perfect? No. But nobody else is doing any damn thing at all except trying to figure how to screw the average person yet more.
Just more proof the rich are clueless. Or this is a tax write off.
My money is on both.
I've had to set up quite a few Surface Pros and the only issue we had was the same as with every MS OS since WiFi was first supported: wifi management is shit.
We bought the Pro's to replace the previous Surface 3s, which were obviously built by politicians.
What's not love about game making? Insane hours, erratic pay, rocky career, slave driving bosses, bad food, mental fanbases, the list is long.
I just see women's lack of numbers as further proof women are still slightly smarter than men.
>Then you sell them 50 gems for £19.99
A serious cold wind of ennui just blew though me when I read this.
Does MTV still exist?
Yes... and no.
I see 5 people did not detect the sarcasm.
Needs more particles effect.
Not sure why the down votes, PNGuinn.
No matter your personal choice on this issue, truer words were never spoken about history not learned.
Trump for president and Doris for PM, may as well have twin idiots eh!
We did that already. Thatcher/Reagan. That's how we got to here.
You forgot the /rhetorical tag.
For the win.
A little earl-y for puns isn't it?
Well done. Very well done. A sincere congratulations.
Goof beagle? Brilliant!
Wow, that is a serious stretch. As in delusional. Work related solutions to work related problems are often found on websites related to the industry or straight up searches, not InstaFaceBookTwitterGram©®™.
I have YET to see ANYONE on the job who is learning something job related from social media bullshit.
As for taking a normal break and doing what they please, that's quite reasonable. No one should care what they are (legally) looking at on their breaks. But don't sell me this tired shit about social media having any redeeming value other than entertainment. Been hearing that for the last 10 years.
Of course an El Reg regular could sort them out, but and El Reg regular simply doesn't have the right connections or school tie.
If this means the elimination of lawyers and other self appointed "experts of social authority" (and quacks of all professions*) than I sure as HELL welcome our AI overlords.
*just the quacks, not folks with real wisdom.
Technical issues and costs haven't been a barrier for almost 10 years and stupid people shouldn't expect anyone to pay attention to them. Unfortunately, they often do and then yell the loudest when they are ignored. Can't master your medium? Tough shit for you. Learn it. The entire Internet offers free lessons. At your fingertips. In the comfort of the surroundings of your choosing.
As for traffic, if one is relying on someone else's audience, than one should not complain about free services created by that someone else.
I am NOT pro Google. I AM anti-fucking-whining-wanker.
I was thinking the same thing, TeeCee.
Respect? People who give their work away for free are fucking morons and make life harder for the rest of us punters trying to earn a living and pay the bills because they undermine EVERYONE's worth.
Rips off? Look, there is nothing, NOT ONE DAMN thing that is stopping these people from making their own, personal website and posting their videos there.
Domain names and hosting and throw-down website builders are pocket change these days.
They don't have a leg to stand on and Google owes them nothing. Sorry, but that's reality.
The Internet was created so everyone and anyone could created their own website and have their "voice" heard, not complain like little fucking babies about the free ride they are getting on someone else's website.
Fuck them. Fuck them straight to hell. They ARE wankers. And shitty, lame, amateur video producers as well. The world does not need more stupid useless shit.
So he moved over from InstaFacebookTwitterGram, then?
I have just a few words of advice for him: "Yo scrode! Yer shit's all fucked up and you talk like a fag!"
Name that movie.
It has also, however, fuelled a backlash from telcos and some lawmakers who see city-operated broadband services as an unnecessary government incursion into markets already served by private-sector companies.
Fuck 'em. Fuck 'em to death. This what happens when you don't learn the lesson of Marie Antoinette.
When you make a typo, the errorists win.
Simplicity and long battery life. That's how it's done.
A gimmick is a gimmick no matter how many people buy it and should be called out as such.
Ah, the worst of both worlds! What could go wrong?
This is the kind of stupid that can't be fixed.
Have you ever seen a merger that didn't result in higher prices and reduced service?
Yeah, me neither.
You forgot the sarcasm tag.
What have they been going? Getting marginalized by VCs and MBAs in favor if InstaFaceBookTwitterGram garbage or vendor lock in.
Agreed. The bloat in software these days is beyond redemption.
This is one serious pile of bollocks. Mt. Everest scale in fact. The 1% do not value local talent one wit and they will tell any lie to hide their contempt of said talent.
Can't have the help getting uppity, you know. They simply MUST know their place. /s
Either way, it's a tradition first pioneered by those kings of corporate raiding back in the 1980s. You remember. The Thatcher/Reagan era of prosperity for everyone except the average person.
Damn! Looks like I missed another flash in the pan. How will I ever live with myself?
Oh wait. Don't care.
Just one question, though. Was ever heard to utter the phrase, "Do you know who I am?!"
His grief is understandable but his targets are way off.
You joke but every single example you gave has been tried and continues to be tried.
And then some.
So just like every form of PR then.
Right. No surprise here.
The only surprise to me is that they don't seem to have even the most basic verification system installed. Has CAPTCHA, email confirmation, or 2 factor login been that easily defeated? Oh wait, I'll bet it wasn't even deployed.
If it's Tuesday, this must be Belgium.
That an old movie ref, BTW.
The SEC could catch a lot more if they weren't constantly hobbled by Congress.
Most IPSECS experts are snake oil con men.
The PTB DO NOT understand the Internet.
