Bit of a pain if you spin off on the far side of the track - but suppose an F1 driver shouldn't do that

Pure Douglas Adams ...
Who describes their (Sirius Cybernetics) marketing division as "a bunch of mindless jerks who will be the first against the wall when the revolution comes",
If the cap fits !
Just call him Von !
Re: It's hopeless
And didn't he also say that they keep all their info on archival paper EVEN though its all been scanned in
Re: LG do it too
"I've set all my regularly used Smart tools in the quick menu so I can avoid the ads."
That sound like an LG fail ( from their point of view) too - allowing the end user to control / dismiss the Ads - what ever next !
Just maybe they meant,
A selfie stick can be used in two modes, one as the name implies, but also in 'periscope' mode to get a better shot or view of the action which it looks like the original Aussie tweet was addressing
But never let the (possible) truth get in the way of a good rant against iPhone wielding narcissists
Has Brin's Google Glasses girlfriend (Amanda Rosenberg) been axed too ?
With the average UPVC door they DO need to be locked from inside !
"errm, virtually all doors these days don't need locking to be secure. You need to key to open them from the outside, to get out from the inside, just push the handle."
With the average UPVC door they do !!
if you don't want your house broken into + car stolen !
Very common for a large bent lever to be pushed thru the letter box to apply downward pressure on the handle - Bingo ! door open, car keys usually on the hook by the door
Another good try from Netgem
Netgem have had a number of good outings in the freeview arena usually ahead of the curve , there was the original Netgem freeview box with full wireless keyboard, then later the quite popular Tesco HD pvr from Fetch TV which was a re-badged netgem unit/software - but Fetch folded killing that box ( can't remember exact cause now)
Netgen : always the best man but never the groom and if BT buy EE the same may happen again -
Chips have been cashed ?
"There is no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary"
And this could be the hotels obit !
Thank Sonos : Que ?
Not entirely sure what we are thanking Sonos for here ?
Link seems fairly tenuous to me
To quote ....
"I'll give you my gun when you pry this lump of 3d molten plastic from my cold, dead hands"
Not related to / prompted by the recent Microsoft / Dropbox tie up then ?
Can Uri Geller bend one - just by stroking it of course ?
Just need to sort out the of content now then !
Cancelled my trial after 1st month due to lack of new content
He would do well to team up with ;The Gadget Show' in the UK they also perform equally mindless and irrelevant 'testing' on all sorts of kit
Does this get over the basic issue of normal TRV usage which requires the boiler to be 'on' 24 hours a day ?
i.e can it switch the boiler on when ANY TRV is calling for heat and leave it off the rest of the time ?
EDIT : RTFM !: Yes it does
"That implies thermostats per heating zone, possibly even per room, controlling local TRVs to regulate temperature and able to bring on the boiler ("call for heat" or "boiler interlock" are common terms) if any zone needs heat "
Re: Beemers are old hat
On a recent era of Audis, a year or two back, the design of the rear indicators was reduced to such a small slit to make them almost ineffective even if they were activated by the wet bag in the drivers seat (IMHO)
Is that why the governments head of the recent 'coding' project for schools/education is a girl ?
Oh no - she hadn't a clue !
" I love trying new products and sending feedback. ..... Count on me to keep ideas and inputs flowing."
Keep sending the feedback Steve - I'm sure someones filing it, probably under T for Tra....
Love the low key Win 1.0 sales pitch though !
Still 18 billion, Nice problem to have
Re: The Shaft
"The Shaft is my game"
Consider yourself shafted then !
Re: A new lightning cable then ?
Thunderbolt and Lightning - very very frightening !
Head line item more of a boot note in the article ?
shome mishtake shirly !
Whats his chances of getting a job on that sort of salary outside the BBC - aka the real world !
Just as long as <font size = x etc > keeps working for a decade or so more
Depreciation - we've heard of it !
The 'Peter' principle applies - Also known as "doing a Lane-Fox' "
It'll be the Lords next for him !
Google clearly want this ruling overturned - So it made sense to go for those who might influence /effect that possibility first !
US patent court? Shabby??
Reported without a hint of irony ?
The old Form over Content issue !!
Plagues lots of TV and Radio output
Great -Thats really improved my Bullshit Bingo score for today !
What with all the recent add on lenses , 360 degree etc etc for iPhones
Waiting to see the launch of the iDrone add-on for your iPhone
I Wish ......
She would pay the money back,or someone would have the balls to take it back off her !!
Cheeky mare !
Meaningless title !
I think DROP =/= DELIVER in this new dystopian 'Register' speak
I know language is a living thing but thats just mid west gobbledygook !
"Launching" was good enough for the Google presenter - It'll do fine for us too Thanks !
Thats one heck of an up sell
Need to pay for 3 but stiffed with another 997 !
Thats worse than a Sky bundle
Still need to remember their NFC enabled Smart Phone though !
Plus thats now two mobile devices which need remembering to charge
But then again most elderly (Alzheimer's or not ) tend to avoid smartphones as too complex in my experience
If they remembered to take the phone - couldn't they just press an SOS button on the phone or one of its apps
Re: A fixable problem
Some of them already do provide the links to the official service - but still go on making loads a money somehow!
Surely there is some prior art regarding small hoovers like that being dragged about by their hose
There used to be an old (true) Hoover sphere shaped thing with three wheels, didn't there ? ( 50s/60s)
In fact the Henry is a close approximation - if its all about the steering mech ?
Cracking project - really looks the biz !
Heath Robinson would be proud of some of those Chinese efforts
Nobody sacked ?
Linwood was er 'let go' wasn't he ?
No bag of swag either or so I read
Why not ....
film the existing volunteers giving their current presentation rather than actors ?
They already know all the likely questions so can cover those, have the enthusiasm for the subject etc
Unfortunately they will need to be replaced at some time ( due to the march of time..) - rather their presentation ( which I've experienced ) than some bloddy actor or worse Mr Stephen (Gary Kildall who ?) Fry
Its his usual PR style
R y a n a i r : Keep puffing on the PR !
any excuse to get that companies name in the media as per usual
Missing Pilot found ....
In one of the captions you said the Pilot couldn't be seen ....
No such problem here ( @ about 1min 57 ) - thats extreme detail !!
Well timed advice !
You know us real blokes do our Christmas shopping on the 24th
Had you mentioned it earlier it would have long been forgotten by the 24th
What a brilliant idea ....
Truly a 'lightbulb' moment !
"A quadcopter is on the same rough speed and size scale as a wildfowl, and rather less vulnerable if anything: most can keep flying having lost a rotor disc"
You sure ?
The quadcopters i fly get distinctly 'out of shape' if the props aren't balanced let alone lose a whole rotor !
A hexcopter might just cope might cope without one rotor ?
Consider it an extended notice period !
You're about to be shafted, but it won;t happen on our watch, we've passed that thorny issue on to some other poor sods to deal with later !
If he hasn't got it right so far ...
smacks of fiddling with the deckchairs on the Titanic whilst the violinist was playing ....
Tin foil hats all round then !
Re: hah hah hah
I thought the term 'Glasshole' had already be coined for users of these
