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

For delivery, I always use FedEx - if you have to pay a fee they let you know after delivery.

@ 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!
How many times must the same drivel be peddled by ISP
Personally I am waiting for ronseal to become an ISP, no fuss, no mess, no bother, does exactly what it says on the tin.
Re: My Little Pony...
Sorry to be a pedant - but it was actually in the book, how to be a complete bastard, although it was Adrian Edmonson so i'll give you half an advent chocolate
That's pretty much what I was thinking, there isn't any restriction or tax to pay.
Within a week I quit tobacco altogether, within a month I was mixing my own juice, within 2 month I was modding my kit.
After 4 month I started craving some good old THC, but didn't want to roll, and as it happens I found dry vape chambers. All in all, I vape, and this is a happy smiley thing.
Surely they don't use the internet for spying do they? I thought it was all porn and online shops.
Speaking as a recent apple convert....
This is a sham, Google never copied Apple
Android devices are poop compared to the refined Apple user experience
Yesterday I met the director of the firm I work, and I mentioned that IT can be dangerous work. His words were thus, nice that I have a BOFH on site, just remember that I'm one too.
These are only USA products - what about us lot in blighty
Seems logical, why have a drone to tell you prices and events if your iShiney can do it for you
OK, I want one - this IT lark is just so pedestrian, so I might as well make like one.
I'm a recent Apple convert and can I just say
Mi aerodeslizador es lleno de anguilas
Not Halloween, All Hallows' Eve or bloody trick or treat day!
That's what they want you to think!
*Paris, because that's what she thinks, at least she thinks that what she thinks.
isn't that what yorkshire people drink?
*It's not a coat it's Yorkshire Jacket
Yeah, lets employ criminals to carry out criminal acts in the name of Gov
Maybe knife crime types can become butchers
Muggers can become doormen
etc etc etc.....
It would add fuel to his fire, but it seems that there has been an issue with refuelling. Therefore the plain, the fuel and the fire have all been delayed.
As long as....
They keep the database for themselves and don't sell access to it to anyone. As I wouldn't want the world knowing about my "light bulb" moment.....and I don't mean having an idea!
