You never did own it, only a "licence" to play it, and then in restricted circumstances.
Re: In case you missed the adverts
Good job I already have this on cassette recorded at the time
You heard it here first
iMirror so that you can read the back screen while looking at the front.
(display on back screen would be, erm, mirrored to enable this)

They are going to teach them HTML, I see now the difference between "coding" and "programming"

Since I was around at the time, the story I have understood for the last 30 or so years is, IBM preferred Digital Research's DRDOS to Microsoft's MSDOS, but when they came calling on Gary, he was up in a plane, and radioed down that he'd get back to then sometime. IBM went away. To Microsoft.
Bitcoin mining looks to me a lot like theft or fraud. Is it not similar to repeatedly appearing at a bank teller and asking if this is the right account number if so can I have $400 ?
How come it's even legal ?
Re: Floppy Eject
Surely that would definitely imply "delete everything on this floppy" ?
I have to use Chrome at work, all the others are blocked, no really.
I use FF at home
It's not like this sort of thing never happened before, eh
Think of the children
How many times do you see a mother with a few kids running about crossing a road while staring into a phone or endlessly speaking into one
Re: re: you're going to draw up rules on the use of devices while operating machinery
The study was titled “Texting and Walking: Strategies for Postural Control and Implications for Safety” so I'm hoping that the pilot is using the onboard equipment rather than walking up and down the aisle trying to do it from an iPhone
re: you're going to draw up rules on the use of devices while operating machinery
Rule 1. Don't
Re: Actually old boy,
Born in 1743 so British, mwerr
The truth is out there
TRUSTNO1 is Fox Mulder's password, any fule kno
who's surprised ?
Apple is the company that sued podium.com because it "conflicted" with iPod
Microsoft isn't much better e.g. Lindows
Now off to Asda for some tights

I was quietly and happily planting escallonias in my garden, when one of your drones came overhead. It was making a sort of spluttering sound, then it simply fell from the sky. Unfortunately it landed right on my head, causing actual injury. After leaving hospital today, I have instructed my lawyers to pursue Amazon for compensation in the sum of $10,000,000 since I am now heavily traumatised by the incident, and I dare not even venture outside. Thankyou.
When we had a shoe bomber we all had to take our shoes off.
Then we had the underpants bomber and .... nothing
Re: Coming up next on Mythbusters....

Re: "unwittingly accepted some T&Cs"
Unwittingly "accepted" T&Cs are not actually _accepted_
Reminds me of Win 98 (or was it 95) anyway it scoured your comp and sent the details back to Microsoft. When they got found out, MS put in a patch where you could tick a box to say you didn't want your details sent back to them. Guess what, it still sent your details.
what's "nickle" ?
Surely it is the responsibility of Apple to prevent scraping of their own website if they don't want it.
Preventing a third party from doing it does not make their problem go away.
In fact it highlights it.
Re: Further confirmation that things are progressing nicely....
this is sarcasm, yes ?
Zuck's not so clever. For a start he doesn't employ me.

I always have my phone switched off while driving, that avoids any temptation to answer it if it rings. I know that I am not so important that I have to be reachable at all times, unlike 99% of everybody under my age.

as "stuff" surely?
not if you're from Surrey
Re: Storage Desnity...
NAND flash is initialised to all FF's so the more data you put into it the lighter it gets (electrons here)
So you can take screenshots off passers-by, does GCHQ know about this.
Why not use your actual smartphone to steal screenshots from passers-by.
I suppose there's already an "app" for that.
They don't need to smuggle chargers only charged-up batteries.
My phone lasts 3 weeks on one charge (not all phones are iPhones/clones)
What has it got to do with
SOCA ? Since when was selling/buying a small mobile phone a serious organised crime.
SMMT ? They only resemble key fobs, auto makers don't make them. Doh, doh and thrice doh.
Unpowered RAM data
How do you get it out without, umm, applying power
What kind of idiot stores 'that' kind of data on something you take through an airport ?
It's what the Cloud was invented for, oh and don't have live links to it on your laptop etc.
Google search test
Try a google search on something a bit 'iffy' (with safe search off).
Now do the same in Bing.
Notice any difference ?
Why is this ?

Do they still have McD walk thru's in London, they certainly did in the 90's
Well a laser firing outwards from Mars certainly simplifies navigation for the incoming ... oops ....
So let me get this straight, MC and Visa ban payments for some VPN services, but their own transactions/data/comms/etc needs security so goes via VPN's ...
