Stop teasing us with headlines like that! I glanced at it and for a brief second, and had hopes that just about the coolest thing ever had happened overnight. Once the first bits of caffeine kicked in and my eyes focused on the first sentence, I realized I'd been tricked again into reading about reality. Quite interesting stuff, but where my frigg'n stargate already.
'abandon Facebook, but for many it's the only way to keep up with remote family'
Whew. Does making an account with that particular demon still require an e-mail account and presumably an ISP? If yes, then viewing 6 million ads just to get in contact with someone you know is not necessary, e-mail groups and lists work fine, and are ad free. Do you just want to troll around and spam what you ate for lunch? Carry on.
No need for the nuclear countermeasure if you don't encourage the cancer to begin with.
Larry Ellison, Zuckerberg, Jobs, googles entire staff, and numerous Microsoft execs ( specifically the one's who's idea it was to nag me for a year about 'upgrading' ) might disagree, it would not surprise me at all to find out they started their careers as professional douchebags.
Tl; dr fagot. OK, I did read your comment and for the most part agree.
18 thumbs down prove my point. (inb4 someone reads more into this comment)
Meh, just call them faggots or jews, seems to work on 4chan. Although the commenting on El-Reg over the years has seemed to be above that, the MS and Larry Ellison battles are pretty good and almost there, also when is AManFromMars coming back?
Possibly, the only problem is that my doggies seem to have made friends with the bears (or at least signed some sort of non aggression pact that I missed), they are a bunch or retrievers though, I wouldn't put anything past them that does not involve extra sleeping or much past getting extra puppy treats
We are talking about Eastern Euros and Russians here Mark, different set of rules and upbringing, SHIT I let that slip! call the PC police and ban me! I'm sure there are some 'false flag' injections of ads here or there, but this just looks like some guy and his co-workers and PHB, who thought it would get a laugh, not a sacrifice on the Tumblr alter
This apologising shit has got to end, you cannot comment on, or do anything without some faggot being so ass-pained that they try to make a federal case out of either a) a bad joke, or b) your opinion which they don't agree with. I read somewhere awhile back that some 40% of millennials would agree to peeling back to 1st amendment if it meant no more rude people on the internet. I declared my home a politically incorrect zone years ago, it's getting so ridiculous now that I might need to a build a wall of some sort or something...I already live in the woods
'The Apple Watch keeps perfect time'
For about 12-18hrs depending on usage. My TimeX s-l225 self-winder has kept good time for 40 years (it was a hand me down) and has never let me down, the only drawback is I can't use the now frequent "my watch/mobile died" excuse if I'm horribly late.
What's worse? The fact that the developers didn't bother to write in exceptions for every sensitive historical spot on the planet which may or may not have a museum or memorial, or that fact that some dumb-ass feels the need to whip out their Iphone at Auschwitz instead of trying to grasp the sites significance?
"..if you regard sociology as a joke subject...as they use sociology and psychology to manipulate you without your knowing."
My opinion of sociology is that in the last 20 years (my observable timeframe) is that it has indeed become a joke, and is now on par intellectually with images and memes generated by 4chan. I can say with some confidence that that I can spot this bullshit a mile away. The only noticeable effect on my behavior is excessive eye rolling and added disgust that my tax dollars help subsidize what are essentially hugbox/daycare programs for young adults.
"The gas will have a 'temperature' but any atom/molecule will have it's own (and changing) velocity"
I'm pretty sure that is the gist of it, if I remember correctly one could talk about a temperature for a large molecule, in effect relating the sum of all it's vibrational modes to the equilibrium state of the ambient environment, although I have no clue where or if that comes in handy anywhere. This stuff was 20 years ago for me, and the only thing fresh in my mind is the traumatizing brain tangles and PTLSD (post thermodynamic lectures stress disorder).
"..strange that no one has mentioned the killer was Muslim."
Pretty sure that is because he was Hindu, 4chan/pol when through 100 threads on this today.
I bet it is going to get annoying fast when the train keeps stopping halfway through to let Dr. Doom's henchmen on and off
I paused reading right there, and naturally assumed that somewhere in the bill there is a new and idiotic gun restriction stuffed in, just to truly make this bullshit legislation worthy of her signature.
Yep, about five years. I look forward to picking my new copper-whatever-arsenic HDD up in my hydrogen powered flying car, also just around the corner, in 5 short years.
Butt-hurt euro detected
...except where's the quote that goes something like this:
"We expect to see this reach the consumer market in about 5 years"
All kidding aside, this type of research sounds great not only for better batteries, but for materials engineering in general. The more insight there is on how nanoparticles behave the better, and hopefully it get us one step closer to manufacturing that magic space elevator material to boot.
"BECAUSE IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE A$$."
You can fix that to some extent apparently:
Why Microsoft decided to go full retard and decided to include all the ridiculous facebook/instagram tier options by default is beyond me. Why not just have a simple 'classic look' option like win 7 does? Did someone in marketing think "Wow, I bet people who have been using windows for the last 20+ years would really love to spend a few extra hours of install time getting a look and feel they want!". Scratch that last comment, it's ms business as usual.
Obviously they are the lost tribe of the Bikura, they weren't discovered by a certain Father Paul Duré were they? Oh wait we're not on Hyperion, or are we?
Sir we prefer either Canuck, Maple Ni**er, or just plain old Hoser
Since when did the reg do movie reviews? meh it's the weekend I guess. Also, at least the movie has some aspect of realism, cats are always evil etc..
I assume they've planned for this
SkyNet did, just chuck'em out the window!
though full scale production and commercial release remain some years off
Humm...just some years off (I bet a company rep says 5, it's always 5)..where have I heard that before? Right, I'll have my fusion reactor by then. Pics or it didn't happen etc. etc..
I take your puny 520Mpixels and raise you 3.2Gpixels!
Pfft..probably be standard fare on the next round of mobiles anyway
This is a joke right? Oh yeah, it's 'mericca 2015. Can they not at least plant some 'evidence' and keep this out of the press? Frigg'n noob prosecutors
So... this the research produced when the 'millennials' graduate. Do vampires get their own pronouns as well? Wouldn't want to hurt any vampire feelings by just calling them out for being delusional tumblrite snowflakes, and also risk getting labeled cis-species bigots (or is it anti-vampite these days?).
I want of this ride.
I couldn't have said it more cromulently myself.
As soon as I figure out how to get my old Delorian up to 88 mph I'll fix everthing, just ignore the unforeseen consequences, and the libyans in the wllmart parking lot. If I fail call, this guy name Gordon Freeman and hope for the best
Thank god my new car will not only check my blinds spots, park, reverse, and brake for me, it will now make legal decisions for me! I thank all the organizations involved for reminding me I'm a born criminal just waiting to offend, there's just no way I could keep myself from constantly driving drunk and mowing down children. I hope they develop sensors for my house that calls the SWAT team if I raise my voice after a drink, I could be on the verge of shooting up the neighborhood. Maybe some systems could be in place that keeps me home from work if abnormal stress is detected in the morning as well, I maybe ready to assault someone. /sarcasm
Also what happens if the sensor is damaged/malfunctioning? I assume the by default the car would be disabled, and you're SOL in an emergency. I also assume failed attempts to start the car are logged and definitely not forwarded to your insurance company (auto and health), police and other interested parties.
Gold Rush was a classic. I still remember starving to death many many times aboard a ship to Panama because I couldn't figure out how to eat a pig that was running around the deck. Finally I typed "GRAB THE PIG" and it worked, who would have thought? It must have been a great game for me to still have that in my head over 25 years later.
- won over fifty PC Game of the Year awards
- IGN ranked Half-Life as the number one greatest first-person shooter of all time, stating that "When you look at the history of first-person shooters, it all breaks down pretty cleanly into pre-Half-Life and post-Half-Life eras."
HL was a game changer when it was released, I (like a lot of gamers) bought my first 3d add-on card specifically for the HL. Half-life also spawned CounterStrike, arguably they greatest online multiplayer of the last 15years. HL's mod community was and still is huge, with many modder maps becoming instant online classics. I can't believe it didn't get a mention.
How frigging new was this guy to the internet?
Of course! No economic espionage here!...I know because the gov said
"...consumer market has been essentially wiretapped by a foreign-owned company? That's a little bit on the distressing side."
Any worst than by the NSA or any other foreign gov agency?
"Phones all do basically the same things"
Agreed. It took me years to justify banishing my Nokia 6120 to the glove-box. My most recent phone is a Galaxy S3 I bought for 45$ CAN (new in box) a few months back. I'd much rather be free of any contracts and have the extra few hundred bucks in my pocket, than take 8 megapixel selfies or whatever.
"In the 70s and 80s. Digitizing tablet. The pen worked with a special tablet rather than the screen, though it had simple pressure sensor capability."
I used to love my Koala Pad!
Sure thing federales "Say hallo to my little friend!"
It's a sad state of affairs when my mom actually reversed her stance on "if you have nothing to to hide...etc" and apologized for suggesting I might be a tinfoiler. I'm sure the recent events in the old world, and the idiots in office (CAN/US incl) are not going to help one bit.
I have absolute confidence in the technology, IT works as advertised, if you know what the fuck you are doing. The problems arise when the users do not either understand, or they ignore it's limitations, or are sold bullshit dreams by people who should know better.
Somewhat like this maybe?
(/^\) -Hi! look at me!

Gave it my best shot.
SpaceX has finally expanded upon, and taken NASA's (also Soviets +others) achievements to the next level, something pesky geopolitics and politicians have stagnated for decades. Even though they smashed their rocket, just hitting the barge seems like a win to me, I seem to recall some Gemini, Apollo and especially Soyuz (23?) landings to be seriously +dangerously off target.
...but all other problems aside, I would just like to know how many credits a frigg'n docking computer costs. I could have filled a warehouse with the number of joysticks I smashed for my C64 after failed docking attempts.
SinTaxes Alcohol, tobacco
As a Canadian living a 20 minutes drive from a prosperous indian reserve, I feel lucky to be able to avoid those taxes. My carton of smokes costs me only 12$CAN, as opposed to north of 90$CAN in town, and the bottle of whiskey is about half price (though I'm pretty sure this is an illegal sale here in Ontario). That aside I'm quite sure I've already contributed enough though various ridiculous taxes and fees to fund a lung or liver replacement, should the need arise to use our great public
waiting healthcare system here in the great white north.
Agreed, I have a MS-branded mouse that I got back in 1999-2000 or so, it's outlasted (with the odd cable soldering job) every Dell/HP/Logitech I've had since.
Reminds me of Jebbadia Sprinfield. Everyone knows embiggened is a perfectly chrommulent word.
The only people who care about this type of stuff are the race-baiters (or gender-baiters) that rant on tumblr posts about how unfair the world is. I assume the HR department at most global corps. generally hire based on merit (although MS might have seriously screwed up with the win8 team). The rabid politically correct need to find a new past time.
"The Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) was designed to probe the distant galaxy looking for black holes"
I just read the first line and thought, cool. I'll let SI units slide.
