You have made my day by including my all time favourite word.
I can clock off happy
Re: I am so so sorry
Words cannot express how sorry I am.

How long before the german court tries to sue the american court?
My monies is on apple filing a patent on the process of suing a foreign court so they can counter sue both.

Re: Another type of pest: "HL Solicitors"
I used to use the pseudonym of Mike Hunt for these types, until that is I started receiving junk mail and even more frequent calls to the landline. At first it was funny, but now it is just annoying.
Nowadays I just let my 4YO to answer the phone. Never argue with the logic of a 4YO!
What is that sound?
Oh yeah, that's the sound of northern Britain weeping
I noticed the old app crapped out over the weekend.
Hopefully it will be well received and free from security flaws.
Re: Speaking as a vegetarian
I can't speak for them all, but it has nothing to do will the slaughter of animals for me. It's the texture and the taste. Both are something that the fake meats haven't mastered.
If it wasn't for meat eaters a lot of breeds wouldn't exist and a lot more hedgerows would be gone which in turn threatens a lot of other species - birds and insects. Eating meat is actually better for the environment than not eating meat. Just a shame I don't like it.
Speaking as a vegetarian
I'm actually quite hungry now, not hungry enough to cross to the dark side.
But bloody hell they all looked good. Such a shame that pretend vege-bacon is as appertising as cardboard
Good news all round
Currently Cleethorpes is trying to work out what to do about the expanding salt marsh there.
But if it slurps up the naughty carbon dioxide then they are fighting a losing battle if they want to get rid of it. Also it turns out to be a breeding ground for fish. Although why the folk of Grimsby want to do their breeding on the marsh is beyond me. *I may of miss read the article a bit.
Just checked out my abode on Bing and the maps is slightly newer than google. Sure it show my garden as an overgrown mass of weeds but at least the building site from 7 years ago is gone. Now if they would only do a map refresh so that I can show off my cultivated lawn and wild flower meadow.
Re: Not really
"in the same way as it is a park for cars."
According to my beat up hyundai it's not a park - no swings or slides and zero trees. No wonder my car looks disappointed when I leave it there.
Who do you believe?
PFY spreading a rumour?
Google for not suing PFY?
Asus for stating it's codswallop?
My money is on Asus - after my dealings with Google though I wouldn't believe a word they say (personal view of course)
Re: Stop skinning Android
the apps aren't unmoveable as such, as they sit in the system partition, All you need is root and they can be removed.
If this is his fetish then
eel be back
In the pretty picture accompanying this,why did they change journalist to halfwit?

But do I give a flying frig?
Re: I think you'll find that's Etymology
The word whisky (or whiskey) is an anglicisation of the Gaelic word uisce|uisge meaning water. Distilled alcohol was known to the medieval Latins as aqua vitae = "water of life"; and as aqua fortis = "strong water". This was translated to Gaelic as Irish: uisce beatha and Scottish Gaelic: uisge beatha = "lively water" or "water of life". Early forms of the word in English included uskebeaghe (1581), usquebaugh (1610), usquebath (1621), usquebae (1715).
Re: OMG They are talking to el'reg?
That's precisely what I thought
it's the end of days I tell ya, the Mayans were right!
Re: Just one question
I wouldn't usually answer my own question, but I have just been told they poop in their hands and then clap?
Just one question
The line of sad individuals queuing, where do they poop?
Google translation chosen to make it even funnier
You never read "apple translation chosen to make it funnier"
Apple are missing a trick - soon they will sue for unfair advertising or summink
If I try and defame you using social media then according to the law of this land I have committed an offence. Even if I don't know that a law has been broken.
If I send you a message publicly that I think you are a paedophile then you have the right push for some form of punishment.
The top 3 that you can be prosecuted under are -
Protection from Harassment Act 1997
Criminal Justice & Public Order Act 1994
Malicious Communications Act 199
but can also include
Public Order Act 1986
Now we all know that the law can be an ass, because it can never take into account the fact that I also talk to you like that and you usually don't mind. The fact is, you don't actually have to mind as this was sent publicly so only a busy body needs to take offence. Essentially to stay the right side of the law don't put something out into the community that is wrong, criminal, slanderous or likely to cause offence.
It's a tricky one, especially as the "banter" that the sub thirty lot dole out is very abusive and borderline criminal. And quite a lot of porn is also now on twitter
Whilst it may be acceptable within your social circle to call someone a peado it may be deemed offensive to others reading the message. Twitter seems to be full of hate these days, and flaming the trolls has little or no effect. Also the actual tools of twitter seem a bit light touch. You could block the individual, but they could create a second or third account and continue where they left off. Alternatively you can send a spam report to twitter, but by definition they are not spamming you. Maybe twitter needs another option to report as offensive.
Not that it would work, not with things hash tags like #thingsinyourfannythursday where a young lady posts images that are NSFW and #thisguysacun.....
I will tell you the only fact about the weasels that I know, and that is they are complete murdochs.
Also they are small, active predators
Shiver me timbers
Lovin the fact that El Reg has gone all piratey on ITLAPD
top job me hearty
Re: Why not Apple. . simple
it does seem unfair, but not just because of apple. The browsers on all android smartphones should also be in this pile.
Anything before ICS has the stock browser but can have several downloaded from the play store, whilst ICS and above has (can have) chrome as standard.
Hardly a level playing field.
If I ran a gadget shop
I wouldn't want the great unwashed stinking up the place. (staff not included)
As it's international talk like a pirate day
All I can say is keel haul the scurvy dawg
Does anyone actually believe it's real? If I was a media shrewd company named after a fruit (edible and not the larry grayson kind) i think I would keep perpetuating these myths.
XDA isn't the easiest place to search - depending on your phone Modaco is a great place to search. It's slightly friendlier too.
I am glowing with confidence
and monkeys fly out of my butt
Didn't channel 5's The Gadget Show create a 360 degree immersive experience?
oh yeah - http://gadgetshow.channel5.com/gadget-show/blog/episode-3-total-immersion-cinema
No wonder my broadband speed is a paltry 1.2MB when the exchange is in South Africa
Oh sweet Jesus
What is this new experience?
Surely not, no it can't be.
erm I agree with Lewis Page
There I said it - now where is the nearest strong drink
Been into clusters for a while, but this one makes me all fuzzy.
Actually I was thinking more of attaching the Pi directly to the TV system board. As far as I understand most TV's use a form of linux for their EPG etc
How long before he hacks it to his TV or DVD player.
Totally love the heath robinson approach to bending devices to your will.
A better solution could be
Telling the ISP that they need to mailshot their users informing them about cookies, and information on how to clear them from the device.
Cookies are here to stay, whether you like it or not. They are not evil (apart from the evil ones)
This reminds me of when HMRC tried to get all their local systems talking.
It's not going to be on time, it's not going to be on budget, and in all likelihood it isn't going to work
Re: Not all Nexus 7 affected
Most users probably wouldn't do this.
Then again I am not most people, thanks to Modaco I have a bespoke OS with working NFR and flash, as well as iplayer. I only stream, I don't store content. Although using stickmout I could. Makes the 8GB model very attractive. With regards to the memory issue I used advanced task killer. And sometimes I even clear the cache.
No trouble here officer, move along.
Re: Go to Jail
The recognition is rightly deserved, and Monopoly is very apt.
Alan had a theory to beat anyone monopoly, apparently the maths didn't work.

Re: Good heavens, is Firefox still around?
Crikey, I await your flaming. I dared to call them failfox and it was like an RAF display. I have never seen so many red arrows.
