@ 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!
I have no need for a 3D printer but for some strange reason I want one.
Sign me up M.D.
** I am not familiar with flash mobs, are Molotov's mandatory?

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 184.108.40.206.
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.
Awesome - in remindes me of fireball xl5
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.
This is cool - BUT
The video outtakes show the robot demanding your clothes, boots and shades.
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!
It's devices like these that perked my interest in computers. Happy times!
Yet another reason to by british
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.
It was only Paypal - a denizen of evil!
Convert the twits?
More chance of the second coming - and I'm not talking about...............................complete your own alter boy joke!
is there anything less inspiring than blackberry devices?
Re: More competitive pricing?
We have more competitive pricing than the yanks.
Hot spots are the way forward - enough of this phoney phone data plannage!
I was thinking similar thoughts myself, we don't need more orbitals, we need to clean the space around our globe.
I'm hoping redbull have a "build a frikken laser" competition.
Re: Here's another tax evader
"Sadly, the whole thing turned out to be "a bit of a joke" by a university student whole"
Should that read .......by a university student a hole
What was more shocking was
explaining to my 4 YO who or what a Jimmy Savile was / is
You try explaining predatory pedophile to a young 'un
I hope that the makers
of Zombiu on the wii u take note and find a way to stop their make me a zombie feature - when will people stop this blatant victimisation of zombies!
Re: All that money so little profit
I don't want to suggest tax avoidance as I believe lawyers fees are tax deductible, however they do have an office in Dublin
It's nice to see the commentards taking this seriously.
You'll not get such frivolity from me though, as I only played cabinet games from the eighties - so far today i have delivered some newspapers, released some oil from my spy car and rescued a princess that was held hostage by a large monkey on a building site.
So where would satire fit into this - As I understand things, this is how television funnymen get around the legal wranglings.
As for my original comment, well I have tweeted her a link to this comment.
https://twitter.com/MsTeresaMay - although this may or may not be the MP judging by her bio.
"Mistress Teresa May. @MsTeresaMay. London's leading Mistress,. Domination, Bondage, Servitude, Worship, Flagellation and Financial slavery."
So, for instance - I can't call Theresa May a stupid cow in these comments but I could confront her in the street and call her a stupid cow.
Which stupid cow is responsible for this?
Re: Beta test
I salute your suggestion +1
Re: When I were a lad
When I were a lad I was approached by a taxi driver asking if if I wanted his smut collection - I was on my morning paper round at the time and eagerly stashed the grot mags in my delivery bag.
Back then things were easier, I wouldn't be able to access this sort of filth now as I don't own a credit card.
Don't they have sysadmins and their pesky group policies?
NRA said what!
New keyboard and a screen wipes please.
Re: She might soon need them herself
Silly Billy - Krispy Kreme doughnuts don't actually have any calorific value, in fact each filled delight contains precisely six of your five a day. And the ring variety actually negate the aging effect.
If only they listened to the consumer
Although they probably couldn't hear them and "youth" music was always blaring out. And as for the layout, what a load of tosh.
It is no loss to me that this store has gone under, it was hard to tell what the customer demographic was. Was it for the youth that had no expendable income or was it for the 40 somethings? I suspect they wanted to be all things to all men but had some seriously bad advice.
It had better not, currently I am the only person in the building that has a bow tie and a pocket watch. If this becomes mainstream I will lose my erm appeal.
<-------that's not a pipe, it's a Smith and Hawkins synergist force insufflater.
What kind of idiot
would pay for these songs - ha ha, only kidding.
Let's feed this idiots ego more
buy getting people to slap him every time he's spotted. With a bit of luck he'll go into hiding, as long as they take away this clowns computer we need never hear of this wazzock again.
If they can get it working for my Geordie and Mackem mates I will buy Google a pint.
Sadly though, I suspect they will be arguing with their devices for a long time to come.
Re: US Authorities - F**K Yeah!
Wish I could upvote you twice - Team America? Seems that Parker and Stone had hit the nail on the head.
This is the second civil service jolly response that has been reported. Who knew the worker bees for the USA and UK were staffed with actual human beings?
I salute all the hard working comedic staffers and civil servants - have this beer on me.
I suggest you read this
"The organisation Demand Progress, which Swartz helped to found, had compared the activities of which he was accused to "trying to put someone in jail for allegedly checking too many books out of the library"
A leaflet campaign - brilliant, they always work (/sarc)
It would be nice in those chaps at Google did the same with Chrome.
If Watson was Hal
I'm sorry Dave, I can't fookin do that you C**t.
