Gmail falls offline, rest of Google struggles on: NO! Not error code 93!

DLSmith

Gmail has been working for me all day. Just got a few emails from my Gmail account. It's 3:25 PM EST here, I think PST is 3 or 4 hours behind.

Combover King Donald Trump: 'I miss Steve Jobs'

DLSmith
Thumb Down

Like antone cares

And just who gives a flying crap about what that buffoon has to say?

Why isn't he spending millions in a hair loss cure instead of wondering why IPhones have dinky screens?

DLSmith
Trollface

Let's see

If he starts wearing turtle necks and acts like a control freak. If so, he'll fit right in and go far.

Facebook shoves your face into creepy 'sponsored stories' in 2012

Boy, am I glad I don't have a Facebook account and have to deal with crap such as this.

Anyone who has a page there, get's exactly what they deserve.

Apple was OK to fire man for private Facebook comments

DLSmith
FAIL

Just maybe...

People should learn not to post stuff on Facebook or any other social media that could get oneself fired. Especially when you work for someone like Apple.

Jeez, learn to keep your mouth shut unless you like being unemployed.

0.5mm2 ARM chip offers 5X energy efficiency, jacks up performance

DLSmith
WTF?

0.5mm2 ARM chip?

So it's about the size of a grain of sand?

Color me dubious.

0.5cm2 maybe.

Wills and Kate to wed live on YouTube

DLSmith
WTF?

Wake me when it's over.....

While I am sure some people who don't have lives are hoovering up every tiny tid-bit that leaks out concerning the upcoming Royal nuptials, I find anything about the Monarchy un-newsworthy, unless one of them is caught drunk as a skunk, running naked through Piccadilly Circus at high noon.

After careful consideration, however, I still wouldn't be interested.

Some morning news programs here in the States even have a daily update on the latest news and rumors. I could care less, as I'm sure 99% of the rest of their viewers are equally disinterested.

One can only wonder what good all that money spent could do for some worthy cause.

What a complete and utter waste of time.

GM declares Ampera e-car 'production ready'

DLSmith
Coffee/keyboard

Mix 'n match

"The Ampera delivers 148 horsepower and 370Nm of torque."

Why not 112 KW and 273 foot pounds of torque?

So what happens...

While I am not a Luddite, what happens when either accidentally or on purpose this handy method of payment goes titsup. And it will sooner or later, no system designed by man has a 100% uptime rate.. So many people no longer carry any cash that when this happens, what will they do?

To be honest I really don't care.

Bad planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.

And, sooner or later we all know, some ne'er do well is going to come up with some kit to steal the cash in your virtual wallet.

FAA to pilots: Expect 'unreliable or unavailable' GPS signals

DLSmith
Boffin

Civilian signals

If it affects the GPS equipment in aircraft, then yes, it will affect GPS receivers in phones and cars. Only military equipment uses a differnet, more accurate signal. The Air Force has the capability to turn off the GPS signals in either a selected area or the entire system if the need should arise.

Brave new Boris-bikers banjaxed by broken boxes

WTF?

Killer-death snow

"Let's hope they get the systems fixed by the time London is released from the icy grip of killer-death snow and people might actually want to hire a bike. ®"

What that, flurries, a coupe of inches?

When you get snow measured in feet like some areas of the colonies, then I'll feel sorry for you blokes.

Dubya to speak his mind at Facebook event

Dubya to speak his mind at Facebook event

Let's face it, he probably still doesn't understand why all the hullabaloo about these TV typewriters and the interspace.

Besides, if he ACTUALLY wrote more than a paragraph that's in his book I'd be truly amazed and ask who was moving his hand.

He's probably happy now that Cheney doesn't have his hand up his behind working his mouth.
