Bill Hicks: 25 years on from the cult comedian's big break

CraPo

I've heard of him

But then I saw him when I was a student at Leicester University in 1992 when Daniel B Myers dragged me along. I've revered him ever since (Bill Hicks, not Daniel B Myers)

Paper driving licence death day: DVLA website is still TITSUP

I wonder how many people were "just looking"...

I tested the site out back in March when this was being publicised and it worked well (unsurpisingly, given the vastly reduced load). I still had to go back and have another look now though :-)

They are irrelevant, annoying and and huge waste of space that has to be scrolled past to get to the article.

Breaking records: Google exec in terrifying SKY PLUNGE DRAMA

Headmaster

Not a "free fall"

Since he had a drogue (or stabilisation "chute" as someone else has called it). Felix's record still stands since he did it without a drogue and truly free-fell.

Still, damn fine effort.

Leaked pics show EMBIGGENED iPhone 6 screen

CraPo

@petur

It's just the front case with a clear screen that you can see right through, hence you can see the fingers of the woman holding the iPhone and the case side by side. There's someone bending over behind it that you can see through the screen and to the side. Took me a while to see it.

Chris O'Dowd...is now a bona fide Hollywood star?

But has he actually done anything good? Given the number of people from over here, performing over there, as one of them, his has to be the worst accent.

Even over here he's rubbish e.g. Moone Boy, although that might have more to do with Sky than O'Dowd.

It's been down hill since The I.T. Crowd as far as I'm concerned.

"Also, you need to get your loyalty card out when at the till (or so they want) so you'll be in your wallet purse anyway."

Not necessarily. Tesco's do a loyalty card app where the barcode is displayed on the screen for scanning.

Man builds smartphone dock into arm

CraPo
Terminator

@lockwood

It looks like he's got the earpiece cradled towards the crook (and conversely the microphone towards the "wrist") so even if he could comfortably raise his left forearm to his right ear, the phone would be "upside down". Unless he just cradled it that way for the pictures. Is the form factor symetric?

iPhone plunges 13,500 ft from skydiver's pocket - and lives

CraPo
Gimp

@ac 07:27

Sometimes skydivers land off of the intended area and a phone is handy to arrange a pick up or help in the unlikely event of injury. He was probably playing Angry Birds on the way up. Or texting. Skydiving aircraft are generally a little less sophisticated than commercial jets so having a phone on is not so much of an issue. Also probably too lazy to switch it off/to aircraft mode each time.
