70's Maths question of the day
Each bean is approximately 0.5 cubed -
An Olympic swimming pool must be 50m x25m x2m
Therefore approximately 5 billion beans fit in the pool.
The question is how many pools would 863 million tins of baked beans fill?
I do know that there are on average 328 beans per can.

Re: Conspiracy theories
This is so typical in the conspiracy communities - A+B=X
Everyone knows that Nature is controlled by lizards from the lower fourth dimension, although I am not ruling out the Kims as humans controlled via the shadow method of imprinting. I don't believe they are true lizards like the rothchilds etc
I thought these sort of exploits were on on Windows devices - still the battery life fix is great news.
Only the glaring security hole to fix, just as well apple devices don't get malware.

Depends on if the insurance company would pay out.
Pay attention @loan - just because you have insurance it doesn't mean they will pay out. Sometimes you (the business) just have to accept the risk, which in this case is fitting a door made out of glass with no protection such as roller door or automated fricken lasers.

Does this mean that they will have a department for violent internet porn?

A French man must prevent a bomb exploding aboard a Renault by keeping its speed above 50 mph.
How the heck can I visualise that?

Re: Daft name
erm no - he sells apple cider vinegar, apple juice and cider as well as other things.
He's been trading as the apple shop for quite a while, and this wrong number issue was only a problem when Apple opened there palace of glass and shiny shiny a few years ago. The cider that he sells is from the Norfolk Cider Company which has been on the go since 1987.
A better understanding of the Apple shop can be found here Here
I know of this shop
Geoff Fisher is one of the nicest bloke you will ever meet! I often visit the barns, usually pretending it's so the kiddies can stroke animals.
The truth is (and not very hidden) that I always pop to the apple store for a few bottles of the driest strongest apple juice on offer. Geoff is a genius brewer, how you can get a drink so dry is beyond me.
+1 to El Reg for promoting one of Norfolks finest
oh dear apple - boo hoo
He who trolls last trolls longest.

The logical step would be ads on mobile platform.
Whilst everyone hates ads - they need to adapt to the new mangled way of doing stuff.
Nice project - it beats the shnizzle out of my rather boring media dohickey
But could it transcribe a conversation between a person from Norfolk, a person from Newcastle upon Tyne and a Glaswegian?

That's the real robbery!
Arabic style tea with a fair bit of sugar - yes, i see that as a great thing in hot climates, many Egyptians have tried to convince me to buy some dumb alabaster tut over several syrupy teas. Not my tea of choice, but great when been conned to buy a statue that you never ever wanted.
Cofftea - you sick sick puppy!
Weak high quality tea, no milk and no sugar is the future.
I used to be a strong, milk and 3 type of guy and only stumbled upon the joy of pure unadulterated tea on a visit to a foreign country. I was doing well with my pathetic attempt to speak their language until I needed to ask for milk and sugar. Now, it was only stubbornness that prevented me from asking in English, they would of understood perfectly.
I know of several penguins that currently have an iPhone simply because they are waiting for this. Looks like I will be buying an old nexus soon, as although I am not a penguin it looks like a great concept.
I can understand Warhammer having rights to 40k as well as the blue uniform that their space marines have. But laying claims to "space marines" as IP is just a bit silly.
Lets put it this way, in 1987 Warhammer created Warhammer 40K, how much of the space marine set was lifted from a 1986 film called aliens? The only difference I see is that Aliens called their space soldiers "colonial marines"
I never suspected Beyonce as a lizard from the lower forth dimension. Damn you Ike, damn you to .......erm wherever you would consider hell - presumably a dimension that opposes the colour turquoise and feeds off concentrated misery that has been harnessed by a network of needles and obelisks.
More expense to utilise its selling point!
So, it's an expensive heavy device with a flawed OS, and to make it a useful alternative you need to splurge more cash for a keyboard.
Surly this is madness
@ Barry Rueger
Shutter click? that's a deal maker for you?
Quite an easy hack to turn it off on your nexus
how is the BB to use in cold or wet conditions?
Depends on the model, but if it has a touch screen, well it would be as bad as your droid.
And, dare I say it, Twitter, Facebook, Google+..
It can do them, just as well \ badly as the other smart phones
We salute you!

This is not the first time this week.
The network and phone provider on site is Clueless & Witless, we have so far had major network issues affecting the south and central regions, pathetic internet access, and phone trouble.
When you get the delight of speaking to their incident desk you get the same old runaround (minus Mike Reid) They ask for the destination IP address no matter what the fault (seemingly) I now give them 188.8.131.52.
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO x 1000
Re: Follow the money?
You would think that following an electronic trail to these bastards would be easy.
1. Infect Computer
2. Start process to pay
3. Track payment
4. Issue warrant to bank \ service provider
5. Arrest \ kill these vile wankers!
6. Nice cup of tea and a biscuit for a job well done!
Does this mean...
that El Reg can have implied consent? Because I get tired of the grey bar asking if I am OK with cookies.
**For the record I am OK with cookies, biscuits (except bourbons) but my preference is cake!
the OS is quite good on a phone, and hopefully they have Nokia's build quality.
I reckon they might flog a few of these to the people that usually buy a cheap droid.
BBC is not BBC worldwide
The BBC has many faces - it has the Auntie Beeb that serves the UK and doesn't make any money (honest) and it has BBC worldwide, which is funded by other countries and networks and things.
Now as far as I understand the Auntie Beeb own BBC worldwide, which should mean that we own a small part of it. However, we in the UK are not allowed to view BBC worldwide content because it is a separate money making venture.
In a nutshell, the BBC is no different to the like of Amazon or Tesco
At first I was surprised when I stumbled upon #twitterafterdark and thought that maybe twitter needs to put an "I'm 18" button to view certain profiles. I have now adjusted my view and feel that twitter is the exception due to how it works.
Facebook on the other hand is a different beast, facebook is more about families for a lot of people, and I am sure that my niece doesn't need to see things that are "liked" spring up on her news feed.
Won't somebody....oh whats the point? that's the daily mails job.
Great PR stunt
But i will only salute Google when they sponsor an academy, this may seem unfair but I believe a dedicated learning environment and adequate IT teaching will show the true potential of what children + pi can achieve.
Why would you want to install an app from a non-licensed source? If you pay for an app and it turns out to be a bag of nasty then you have a large company that is culpable.
Aside from helping developers with a new product there should be no reason to use a pirated app.
This goes for all app stores, no matter if they are a fruit or a robot or a hole in the wall filled by glass.
I think I have now heard it all. What a crock of shit!
Sounds like a drain cleaner!
"given how dog-slow the official Android emulator is"
I am so happy to read this, as I thought it was just me. Truly the worst emulator ever - and I regularly use the blackberry one!

Sure, I need a suitcase to carry around the coal, and I have to wear a pneumatic arm to lift the phone. But at least I can be smug.
