If Watson was Hal
I'm sorry Dave, I can't fookin do that you C**t.
This is an advertisers dream
From the headline I thought it was the ISS that was ablaze. It would of made for an interesting Stargazing Live tonight.
Steam punk Lester?
Surely and old landrover, a jack and some for of belt system driving an electric motor could server as a generator? Sure the kids and missus will moan, but that's OK as it's only for a short while.
Alternatively, have you thought about steam? they run on fire and water and have a proven track record at electric generation.
A pint for both - I am now browsing Bigjigs (for my sons you understand)
I smell a new court case
Doesn't HTC have a patent on cheaper versions of flagship phones?
Do these calls bug you? Then what you need is a four year old boy called James (other boys names are available)
That's the method we employ, and it is very effective, sometimes he will ask them all manner of awkward questions.
If ofcock used small children to contact these companies I am sure they will adjust their business model.
What industry and what role are you planning to do/
I have never bothered with a qualification and make about 36k for a technician support role. Of course, I am quite lucky, and have proven time and time again that a degree or course does not make you a better candidate. However if I was a fresh faced noob the I would probably go for ITIL and a few of MS courses to start with.
Yes you monitor all traffic, but on a certain date the malware bomb explodes then you compromise the traffic. Don't take my word for it though, the Iranians will tell you all you need to know.
It actually amazes me that any government would use kit that wasn't built by a national country. If I wanted to spy on a government then it seems the best way would be to seed their infrastructure with devices that report back.
A nokia droid would be a market slayer - such a shame it will never happen.
Re: NK is evil
Unless you extend a hand of friendship you will always be enemies. Likewise, if you never talk you will never win an argument.
It wouldn't of been caught it it had a frikken head mounted laser!
Just WTF is that man on?
Oh, and his rantings are that bat-shit crazy that i read "extensive spook network" as extensive spork network and it still made sense.
about as useful as......
I hear that they are also embedding a touch screen into a slab of chocolate. Apparently it's good for 90 seconds before you're covered in the sticky stuff.
It starts as a vomiting Larry, but next thing you know it wants your clothes, your boots and your sunglasses.
I feel older that the prophets.
And the groundhog year begins again.
If only the Mayans had been right!
It seems to be missing the commodore +4 and it's baby brother the commodore 16
Wow, I was only just reading MACH1 yesterday as I was on a nostalgia fest.
As soon as Google have this perfected I will have one, as long as it includes an ad-blocker
They wouldn't use an intel chip in a watch. They would use an arm.
<------icon should just say alert.
Why not go the whole hog and microchip the jobless? Have sensors set up at every bookies and off licence. This is just another example of wasting money on a service that already exists. Truly pointless!
Re: Oh no, not again
Agreed - Nokia probably has a fair wedge of patents as it was once the world leader in mobile comms. Seems only fair that they benefit from it.
It's getting quite hard to avoid the tax dodgers, so it's best to ignore the bad press. They have been doing it for a while and nobody cared for an equal amount of time.
Are you talking about the AR drone? It's a fantastic piece of kit, limited only by the range of your iDevices wifi http://ardrone2.parrot.com/
Re: MS shoots own foot shocker
The same can be said for a lot of businesses - my client currently uses a mix of 2000, 2003 and 2007 - with 2010 coming soon.
Re: Puppet or Muppet - you decide
And yet you took the time to reply, many thanks Martin
Puppet or Muppet - you decide
I have heard that the UK parliament has tried a similar tactic, I don't know what Dave CamMoron calls it, but we call it a Clegg.
If this is what happens when a patent office takes its time over a patent then imagine what it will be like when the UK takes 60 days. EEEKKK!!
Re: Goole tracker
I guess they want to further themselves from Hull
I don't see what the fuss is about
I only have email accounts so that I can spend some time in the afternoon deleting the 150 plus emails for goods and services I no longer use.
Now now folks
These are stocking fillers - for people with deep pockets and fat legs!
Re: Microsoft the Patent troll
Not to mention the copying of the hole in the wall sealed with glass.
What a crap ops name, at least us Brits have proper operation names. We would of called it
Under UK law you are allowed to go by a pseudonym, as long as you maintain documentation of your real name.
(this used to be true and I assume this is still the case)
Re: Ten minuets
Bugger and blast!
Siri, I shall be home in ten minuets - please have the garage open
ten mins later...."This is your reminder to call the vet"
Does this make Anonymous cowards?
Why would you need to be anonymous to against this group is beyond me. If I lived in the states I would happily break a few windows at the church, or to put it another way - put the church beyond economical repair.
*I use the word church in a loose meaning, as whilst it is a congregation of fucktard minded twazzocks it isn't a collection of people striving for world peace.
90 day turnaround
· launching a superfast patent processing service to deliver patents in just 90 days and a faster trade marks examination service which will deliver a full examination report in five days, instead of 10;
This is just asking to be abused
<-------because he's no ordinary troll.
battery life of just one hour 20 minutes,
Yeah, what I wanted for xmas was a tiny screened super power netbook that farts its last after an hour.

Maybe you have an issue with your browser as it works fine for me
Won't somebody think of the clangers
Re: No pardon ...
Hear Hear - possibly the best constructed message from an El Reg commentard.
Fair do's - missed the whole captured by the milky way bit.
A quick search brings up http://www.gizmag.com/exoplanet-outside-galaxy/17055/
It seems that they can detect planets in other galaxies.
No one would have believed, in the years of the twenty-first century, that human affairs were being watched from the timeless galaxies of space.
I was thinking north east mainly because I worked there for EDS. It has huge DWP and BT data centres. A plethora of young university types. As well as cheap housing and a Greggs on every corner. Cheaper booze and the mighty night owls presenter, the flashing blade himself - Alan Robson .
Re: Map reading wife
@Wyrdness - Durham university (way before porting) - not that I was a student, but I did save her dissertation from her crappy computer.
@Lee Dowling - Mine has 2 degrees and a masters, does complicated maths and is quite handy at FPS games. She also cooks, cleans and keeps the little gnomes entertained. She is what I could only describe as geek chic. Every IT bod should have one.
I bet Apple are wishing they took out a patent on complicated European tax schemes now.
Re: Tiz the wrong colour of blue.
Depends on which doctors TARDIS, due to set changes and aging of props the old girl has had many a hue of blue.
I for one would love this to add to my TARDIS collection.
