Re: Re: I like Craig's Casino Royale
Them be the El Reg Commentard privileges...If I told you, I'd need to kill you.
Re: Anonymous because this wont be popular, but...
+1, but PB did take the one liners a wee bit too far...need I remind anyone of the cringeable "I thought xmas only came once a year?"
Re: Holiday resort!
Don't forget the ID'ers and Creationists.
20 million mph!
That's almost as fast as a London courier...
Analysing buckyballs 6,500 light years from Earth. How f*ing cool is that.
Re: New Computamabobs...
Your Dell lasted 5 years??? You sure it's a Dell?
Well, there'd be 2 reasons to increase the prices:
- they're a bit skint these days, so extra margin might be useful. And this "niche" unit might do to the trick, as it's easier to markup.
- They see people like samsung whacking up the prices of tables and premium books to equal or greater than Apple, and getting away with it. Why not try it themselves?
Caveat: I actually quite look the look of this, even though it is a Dell. An i7 in a small form factor. If only it had DX11 and a smaller 11' screen, it would be right up there come the summer and my laptop gets replaced.
Re: Re: So in other words
+1 for Dan; given Google's tactics here, it's safe to say that "Do no evil" is truly dead and buried now.
@ Dan 55
..thing is, if privacy was important to you, would you trust a browser from Google now?
If they're exploiting 3rd party browsers in this way, what are they doing inside their own?
Re: Re: quick....(@ Arkasha)
Just as well I use neither IE or Safari.
Lets hope it's not Chrome...I'd say it's a foregone conclusion what Google do in their own browser...
...make everyone ride motorbikes.
No traffic jams, cheaper running costs, no gadgets to play with (unless you really *must* have that Goldwing) not even a radio, and ultimately everyone pays a lot more attention to WTF they're doing when broken bones are the penalty for not doing so.
Apple claim to have already bought the rights - so why the ruling against them? Surely this is easy evidence to reproduce in court?
We also need to look at the proview angle, that local group per tabs to above. They're effectively bankrupt for a start.
Neither party is in the clear here.
Some cunning rearrangement...
and you get: Fair Association (of) Intolerable Labour
<-- for those who missed it
oh and it's a joke too btw - in case you missed that as well
I remember a load of stories before Xmas about how they'd almost found Higgs and it was only a matter of time.
Now they're cranking up the juice...does this press release come under the "errr, oops. Nothing here afterall. Maybe we better keep looking" heading?
I'm sorry, but what? I should just accept that these are acceptable failures in a 3 month old IBM replacement?
No. Just...no. It should be just like my old IBM, which was 5 years old and *nothing* broken. Same as all the old IBMs in the office, come to think of it.
Happy buyer of the kit...
...but gahd no, this is just a step way too far. That and being married I guess...
The centre console as LCD I can live with, but from a pure safety aspect, I prefer the main driver display should be the goold ol' fahion variety. With physical dials and needles. More reliable, cheaper, and most importantly - easier to read in bright condtions, and with less eye fatigue.
Re: these pics - check out the fit and finish on that S dashboard, and the hideous emergency switch. Lets hope that a pic from the prototype...
On a lighter note...
Googorola or Motoogle? I just can't decide.
Its all relative. Which I why I'll have a clear conscience telling your wife about the hand shandy you shook out at lunch, since I was tracking your activities, and because your office has cameras in the loo..
People froth at the mouth about privacy, because it f*ing *does* matter.
$25 to sell out any vestige of self-respect and privacy you might have had.
And its before tax too...remember to declare that. Actually you won't need to remember - google will probably remind when your taxes are due, and what you bill is. Oh and btw, heres a list of accountants we can recommend based on your location, tax status and recent returns...
Magic = drastically reduced quality...
...if my new one is anything to go by. 3 months old, and already the pointer knob rubber split, the b key crumpled then came away from the spring altogether, the wireless switch is so loose it actually switches wifi on and off with every bump of the train, and finally, it can't go 48 hrs without a full hardware reset, which it does all by itself.
Compared to my old IBM, it a f*ing peice of s**t. Thank god, I didn't pay for it.
The mental picture this article portays to me is bloody amusing. Am I evil?
or what Kurt Russell found.
Fine. Then ship the fuel and the engine separately using known/proven chemical boosters and "safe" routes to orbit, then assemble there.
Jeez...I mean it's not rocket science is it...oh wait. It is.
Its effective - but the OPs reference to whack-a-mole would be right. It's reactive, not proactive. I'd prefer to see these things quashed before they get to the public.
Let's see...perchance the clients now pay at 90 days rather than 30 because "we f*ing want to, so be grateful of the business you feeble underling", and the banks won't fund the shortfall?
Bunch of gits, the lot of them.
Though it should be said both parties here are hardly covering themselves in glory here. SAP (or rather a sub. company) trying to poach clients and data, and Oracle being greedy and demanding stupid, unpayable (even for SAP) money.
Interesting...if true. Care to name your sources?
...with replacing mandibles & teeth - particularly teeth...there's no nerves.
For the seemingly insane idea of evolving nerves in your teeth and the subsequent pain of a cavity, it's actually a good idea as it's the main gauge by which you choose your chewing power.
Though having said that...titanium teeth that take 100 years to wear out do sound pretty cool.
Dammit, beat me to it!
