Re: 410km? WTF?
It says the cable length is 410km
This is typical of BT, they followed an as the buzby flies method of cable deployment.
You cant trademark a word that has been around for donkeys years.
What will I ask for when I buy by cough candy?
Who was the bertie bassetesque robot in Dr Who, The happiness patrol?
And, won't this confuse people that want to buy a large load washing machine?
Actually the last one is quite a valid point (not that the other two are not), but Candy appliances are already prevalent throughout Europe.
This needs investment
How long until we can eat the computer to prevent the feds from getting our data?
*the one with the light dressing in the pocket
I was just chatting to Mrs Gnome about this the other week, as I could see this happening.
Her reply was essentially - I have just vomited in my mouth.
A begrudging congratulations from Collider Man
Re: OY You lot, over here.
It will attract my comment...
Frankly without the bees we might as well take ourselves out into the pastures and blow our bloody brains out. It's time to give these happy insects a helping hand.
This is the first step to awareness...
I for one welcome our .....Mobile Snack Providers

Hi Dabbsy ...
My name is Gnomey...I am also an emailcoholic...
Although within the last few years I have had my wife rationalise my Email accounts, she was very good at explaining that I didn't actually need a mail server...and she also pointed out that whilst my hugh.janus email address is amusing it's not professional.
So now I make do with the 3 client email addresses, the 2 company email addresses and admin on 2 shared email accounts, as well as the 4 personal email addresses.
11 isn't that bad is it?
The NSA now knows that I need a pint of milk and that my mortgage application has been processed. I hope that can't see MMS, if they can then they will know about the 60 year old on the train that had a swish pair of Beats!.
The company is also asking users to directly report any believed or suspected account theft...

That's why my passwords are 123ABC!"£
No one will ever crack them!
Phishing?.....I heard that....
Someone phoned from windows claiming that the computers had a virus....
Hmm sounds a bit fish flakey
Something definitely fishy.
I mean cod you believe it?
The fishnappers were probably well meaning angels, or perhaps a clown.
Of course this could be a load of pollock. Or haddock you thought of that?

Re: So the problem is
I guess some scientists want us to move back into caves.
You do know that we have never actually lived in caves don't you?
In app payments, micro payments or whatever - it still equates to evil intent by the developers.
Whilst it would be nice for a second form of authentication I don't see either Google or Apple as been at blame.
"not-so-budget budget phone" 5C
Well nothing about the phone specs suggests it should be a budget phone.
Why am I laughing
It's hard not too!
Re: Thank god
I swear its not all gnomes.
Re: @ Dalek Dave
Well I have never actually seen people in America as I have never been there. Sure I've seen pictures and video, but they can all be faked right. In fact the more I think about it the more I am convinced that the UK is the only country and that everywhere else is just a figment of my imagination coupled with the UK propaganda machine.
Oh Fudge, I guess I am responsible for the French.....My Bad!
Now troll off!
"Because IT departments are lazy and rely too much on the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" mantra"
I don't think that's true, it's more often the case that the clients think they know better. Or as is happening in my organisation, a complete lack of upgrading key systems because the cost is quite staggering. It's cheaper to pay for a few more desktop technicians who can hold the hands of users as they reboot their PC.
I will find this very useful when I try to find the best radioactive source.
Soon my quest for super powers will be complete.
What's that? Samsung are the best detectors!!!!
Hard Pass on that one!
I don't mind education on this
I just hope the government heed their own advice. Although I doubt it.
Re: Sorta looks like....
I never knew that WHSmith made operating systems, mobile or otherwise.
I hadn't thought of that - I should really withdraw my comment
As a smug Brit living on the east coast of the UK can I just say....
Please stop, I plan to visit California this year, and I don't want to be all glowy or dead because of it.
That it's time to buy a Zune????
Things I have learned so far today,
when you disarm a lady that has just produced a gun from her miffy the ideal place to stash the gun is a toilet.
Why oh why oh why
Don't the government put out a survey asking us lot, the great IT crowd about what is and what isn't a great idea for a .Gov IT project.
Everyone from drone to sys admin can get involved to tell these barmy bureaucrats just what the pitfalls will be. I would happily give 30 mins to a survey if it saved the image of IT workers.
Re: How about on UK train lines?!
Well all the main stations that I use now have 4G access ahead of the official date of 4G in that area. Although the pretty bits in-between don't. Not that I am expecting them to get 4G soon either, mainly because it's only sheep and pigs that live in the pretty bits.
Now I need a 3D cake printer too!
You have hit the nail on the head. I have a friend and they have a verizon deal, as it was the best deal. My friend and partner both have an iphone 5 deal with a government discount. One is an all you can eat data, whislt the other one is a capped 1GB data. They pay a total cost of $160 monthly.
This doesn't surprise me
I always put currants in my crumble
And now the walled garden looks quite appealing
Well at least the Fandroids are used to the tracking.
Lewis isn't evil
Well, he might be, I don't know the chap.
However, for every person that is sceptical about climate change there is a scientist that believes that the change is due to humans.
Now, I'm not a sceptic by any means, and I do believe that we haven't helped the climates situation. But if we have the sceptics and the scientists doesn't that make for a more varied and interesting future for technology?
I simply have no Pinterest in this
Does this mean...
That I will start receiving random selfies
Top Marks for advice
For delivery, I always use FedEx - if you have to pay a fee they let you know after delivery.
No need for you not too receive your goods just because Jonny Customs wants to tax the joy out of yoy
@ Dan 55
That is not jailbreaking, that is allowing apps from outside Play
there is a whole host of additional features that jailbreaking a phone can give you access to.
Is this the same company that bought Cable and Wireless?
What about the rest of us?
There are many benefits to shaking over stirring, depending on what you require the outcome of the drink to be. Mixing will combine both flavours into an even blend, this can be done with tea with milk for a different flavour of the same ingredient. And whilst this is subtle to most the difference can be considerable.
Stirring a drink layers the flavours in a different way, this will create noticeable differences between different cocktail makers, depending on how fast it is stirred, how long for and also what angle.
I believe what Mr Bond is in fact doing is burtonising the drink, so that it tastes the same no matter what bar he is frequenting.
I used to android phone and whatever laptop of the moment
But since going fruit I have been amazed at how good there adapters for all there kit is.
It's time for the rest of the techverse to play catch up and adopt
OK - I totally understand the gripes, but lets not forget that you don't pay to use facebook. Do you think that servers and developers are free.
That is my understanding - the clue is in "menacing"
Re: What is the issue?
Am I serious - Jezz assume much do you?
1, I said I have 3 children, I didn't mention the new born.
2, Babies actually learn by sight and sound, I am not suggesting they play angry birds. Last time I looked the iPad has both. As for the chair, the bouncy chair, the bouncy chair with obvious hanging rattle and things. Well I guess you must of missed that.
3, That is entirely your opinion, and you are wrong with your assumption of screen time. For instance, my 3 year old speaks conversational Spanish thanks to Dora and Diego. This was from watching the television. He also speaks a bit of French from an App. Learning isn't just a set of rigid rules. I guess you will learn that when your kids are older and you are in a corner sobbing gently.
4, Seems you are in the wrong industry, this is actually progression. Maybe you're not an early adopter and are still struggling with Windows ME. It's time to understand that perhaps Granny needs to keep up to date, sometimes it's not about what you want, but what the needs of a child wants.
And really, you would destroy the arm that has a mirror on it, just because it also holds an iPad. Who are you, 1950's Dad? Seems that you need to take a long hard look at the world and try to fit in.
What is the issue?
As a father of 3 I can't actually see an issue, both my boys 3 and 5 use my tablet for games.
An iPad is just an interactive device, it's not hooking a child up to crack cocaine.
Yes, some parents may shove them in a chair and leave them, but we are not all idiots. Some of us understand a mixed and varied selection of activities and stuff will stimulate the little sweeties.
And also, what a great way for Granny to learn about FaceTime.
Did anyone at all see this coming?
Oh, what's that.......the entire readership of El Reg!
