There is an android weather app that uses the pressure sensor - the pressure data is uploaded to the cloud "pun intended) so that weather boffins can use the data to better detect trends etc.
Dead people are anything but social, unless you call PPI phone calls social.
PPI call centre agents are dead aren't they?
SYMANTEC REPORTS EARLY STUXNET VARIANT FIRST WENT LIVE IN 2005
Shouldn't that read
SYMANTEC REPORTS IT HAS BEEN INEFFECTIVE AGAINST STUXNET AND OTHER MALWARE VARIANTS SINCE 2005
I have seen all kinds of cars in a pickle - from Ferrari all the way down to Reliant.
All manner of ages and all manner of faults, and I haven' been put off buying any car because of that.
Tens of millions? Probably the amount of people that think Musk is a twazzock!
How can it tell that the torrent infringes copyright?
Does it download the torrent itself and then compare it to an actual film \ music file?
Because isn't reproducing any part of copyright material an offence.
What about Beards
I couldn't live in a dictatorship if I had to shave, I haven't seen my chin for twenty years.
Re: Silver Bullet syndrome
Silver bullets do exist you silly billy. Werewolves on the other (hairy) hand do not.
The reason that you haven't seen a silver bullet is probably because the vampires hoard them.
Just why do you need to stream that much data to your phone? Call me a cheap skate, but I pre-fill all the content I need onto my device and then I don't need a data budget.
We have all been conned that we actually need internet on the move, just how many pictures of cats do you need to upload to facebook whilst you're on the go?
HDD and memory
Well when I send for the WEEE man these are the parts I keep. They then get sent to the shredder, at least that way I don't have a data leak of any kind.
What this guy did was so dumb, on occasions like this it's best to know a waste recycler and go legitimate if you can.
I do so love the commentards that are that sure they know me that they post a response, especially the anons.
If I have said it once I will say in again and again and again and again and again and again and again until I am certain that you understand. When I want your opinion I will give it to you.
*Oops "and again"I was one too short, I simply can't leave it on an odd number, as my PC may turn to jelly.
I don't know why, but this game started an obsession, I guess it played to my slight OCD. It was a great game to start with, lost its way in a couple of sequels but the latest release looks very playable.
I might fire up my Amiga tonight for a bit of nostalgia :-)
"The second bit: you have to enhance your job title to a point that HR have no idea what you should be paid"
That must be why IBM insist that I am an engineer, and I only make the tea!
Looks like a fringe event - best encase it in amber.
Saw this on the ONE show last night
Truly an awesome image - can you spot the same guy twice?
He's wearing a one show T shirt and waving at the top of St Paul's
Can you spot where he is again?
Oh K9, you shouldn't be snorting that
There goes the entrepreneurial spirit
*just as well the HMRC is effective at recovering taxes that £500,000 will surly go a long way.
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
He was paraphrasing "Taken"
** apparently - No, I haven't seen it either
Ram Raid = the act of herding sheep illicitly

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.
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.

Who decides that its "violent internet porn"
Does this mean that they will have a department for violent internet porn?
I didn't realise they had a dating site
What? Oh Wi-Fi, I thought you said wifey

Re: Ten Tons?
Who needs the internet when you could sit back and have a Jar
<-------A Jar for Jar and his hard work :-)
How the heck can I visualise that?
I need a comparison, in buckets of fish, or Citroen AX's or summink
this is a manufacturing fault
I see what's going on here, your PC is actually upside-down.
Get ready for rush hour
A French man must prevent a bomb exploding aboard a Renault by keeping its speed above 50 mph.
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.
I was thinking more like dodgems
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?
40 quid from popular online e-tailer
That's the real robbery!
Re: Really Bad Tea
I had a chef in my pub that drank tea this way - he refered to it as babby tea
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
