Re: Those stats sum up how shuttles never lived up to the sales pitch
It used to, but that was changed after the Challenger disaster.
Re: It's not a robot.....
Came here to say that.
Well played, sir
"Simply put: without meeting their requirements, we’d suddenly have next-to-no films to stream online."
When I gave them a trial a few weeks ago, they already had next-to-no films to stream. Cancelled the trial the same day.
Sadly, a slightly faster orbit also means a slightly higher orbit. And anything else orbitting in that slightly higher orbit will also be travelling that little bit faster.
(Assuming circular orbits, of course)
Why do they think I want to search from every screen? Especially as it's such a wide widget.
I could actually understand it more (I wouldn't like it more, but I'd udnerstand it more) if they just stuck a rotating advert on every screen.
Except you need the phone line if you want their TV service... I'd quite happily change broadband supplier but I'm not paying for 2 phone lines, neither of which I need. And I can't put a dish up, so I'm stuck with them for the TV too!
"Doing little sharky things" is an excellent description of what sharks do.
"30,000 Watts of energy"
That would be power, surely?
Ironman Triathlon coverage
The live streaming coverage of Ironman Triathlons unfortunately uses it - and more annoyingly (as a Linux user), it uses a version not supported by Moonlight.

Following the maths in the article, 55% of Android users will switch to an Android device from another manafacturer, and 45% will switch to a different OS. And therefore 0% will stay with an Android device from the same manafacturer?
Surely the conclusion should be that (for example, in the HTC case) - 39% will stay with HTC, 55% * 61% = 33.55% will move to another Android manafacturer and 45% * 61% = 27.45% will move to another OS. And therefore, 72.55% of HTC users will stay with Android. The figures difer for different Android manafacturers. obviously.
That's not a big stick,
*that's* a big stick
I can imagine...
...that trying to land on 2 wheels would be interesting, especially with a crosswind.
For everybody downvoting me, can I suggest the aquisition of some type of calendar?
Not in Greater Manc
For the record, neither Wilmslow nor Handforth are actually in Greater Manchester - despite being essentially up-market suburbs, they're both in Cheshire (and always have been).
Apples & oranges
Some of these figures aren't directly comparable - "Smartphone OS sales" would sometimes include anything running iOS i.e. iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch etc, depending on whose figures they are. That doesn't compare directly to sales of smartphones.
Releasing GPL'd code under an Apache License isn't Patent Infringement. Oracle would have to sue for infringing the terms of the GPL copyright.
I paid £165 up front for a HTC Desire from T-Mobile, and pay £10/month for 24 months. That's a total of £400.
At the time I bought it, the handset alone cost more than £400 - and that doesn't include paying for any calls, texts or data (which are included to a degree on the £10/mo contract)
