What do you call it when a marketing drone is buried up to his neck in sand?

Not enough sand
They don't have 'em
Forget the toad. Lick my Marmite!
That could be a ephemism. It just depends on your stance about being 20 something, gorgeous and with a penchant for filthy old men.
Never claimed it was incorrect or in appropriate. Just pretentious.
Do keep up.
Being in the dictionary doesn't make it sound any less pretentious.
"leveraging"? Don't you mean "using"
I won't say "pretentious twat"
But I'll think it bloody loudly
AND a frikkin' LASER!
"SECRETS of the LOST SCROLLS unlocked by BREAST SCAN tech" - Titter ye not!
Only because of the bloody ribbon toolbar!
Yeah, just yell "Enhance!" at it
And home of the vested interest.
What? Like Google?
What the hell have Syria or the Ukraine done to you for you to suggest that?
But I''ll have to say "bottom" instead.
If I recall correctly, I believe that was Way Station, a 1963 science fiction novel by Clifford D. Simak, originally published as Here Gather the Stars
And the ability to turn off stupid animations
No dumb kindergarten crayon level "friendly" graphics
And NO FUCKING METRO TILES
I could live without changing the default Explorer directory - I assume .lnk is still possible
At least some stuff seems to be arriving/leadving Luton:
Interestingly NATS says:
NATS can confirm that a technical problem has been reported at Swanwick air traffic control centre.
UK airspace has not been closed, but airspace capacity has been restricted in order to manage the situation. We apologise for any delays and our incident response team has been mobilised.
Every possible action is being taken to assist in resolving the situation and to confirm the details.
Further information will be released as it becomes available.
Yes. post it back. And, as a small token of the esteem in which you hold the sender, enclose some little keepsake. Like a rusty cylinder head. Or the veg peelings.
@ solo. No, it's not "just the snooping habits" that I object to. A large chunk of my ire is directed at the balal ads, the intrusive and downright rude animated ads (no better than little johnny leaping up and down, yelling, to get noticed and, sadly even served up on El Reg, for shame. ). Its the mindless crap from Amazon (you bought a widget. Here's a targetted ad for another one). Its the lying gits saying things like "you have a new message". Its the special offers that are anything but. Its the popup/over/under ads. Its the relentless celebrity drivel inspired ads.
Attention French Ad pushers (and anyone else embarking on an ad campaign). You don't like people's reaction to the crass, the dumb, the stupid and the rude? Stop doing it. It seems to escape some people's realisation that, if you serve up shit, you get treated like you serve shit. Grow up and start acting like you care instead of going for the lowest common demominator. Simples.
All that is aside from the obvious security weakness of a compromised ad server as has, I understand, been recently slightly in the news.
I do, however, agree with your point that "if ad blockers are adapting "Pay for Play", they are breaching our trust and open source ethics". Quite. With control of what AdBlock allows passing out of our hands, it is in danger of becoming itself just as guilty.
Which I 'll happily provide at consultancy rates. £100 gets answers for up to ten questions. Take it or leave it.
.... You'll have to do a whole lot better, AND the content would have to be inifnitely better than currently available, for me to actually lay down money for a smart tele and switch from my current TAS** TV
**Thick As Shit
Lovely phones. Crap cameras though and the 600 was RAM based, not flash so it would forget if the battery went flat.
My old 650 even survived a sojourn into the bilge of a canal boat. Retrieved it, whipped the battery out, washed off the oily water, dumped it into a cupboard in the engineroom in a food container with some rice and left it there for a week. Still worked OK years down the line.
some kind of filter?
Similarly Twatter, Lunkheadin, Gullible+ etcetera.
As the world shifted ever so slightly on its axis to once again point, with unerring accuracy, at BOFH on a Friday.
There is a God after all.
Do you "Cacking"
Son-in-law deployed one a while ago and has had much enjoyment hearing, every so often, members of the local feline population climbing, at full speed, the six foot fence out of his garden.
Personally I had immense satisfaction form one local moggie that was climbing up a trellis at the end of the garden, intent on a bird box. Being upstairs and not having anything handy to throw at it limited my options. All I could do was open the window and hiss as loudly as possible (something about the sonics they don't like).
The effect on the Moggie was salutary. It did a full all-4-paws-off start, fell down from the trellis and into the flower bed, where it then made a bolt through the foliage to the only bit of daylight it could see. Unfortunately it was so preoccupied with getting traction it completely overlooked the fact that the gap led straight into the pond.
You know, its amazing how much skinnier a cat looks when it's had a good dunking.
It seemed to loose a lot of enthusiasm for our garden for quite a while after that.

Lets see how 'controlled' it is. Try stopping one half way through.
You don't get a 'BA' without a 'NG'
Don't keep harpoon on about it until we know for sure
Nah. Nuke Wales and have done with it
sounds like they're chuffed to bits
And did I say how soon the said items would be needed? No, sirrah, I did not!
The roll of carpet and the quicklime
But I'll forgive you.
Screw your bicycle. What about the Frikkin' SHARKS?

Watch out for my coffee cup.
What the fsck did you put it there for in the first place?
lovely - I WANT ONE

No, no, no. They'd just turn it into another thermonuclear clusterfuck of fail

The Fuck off and Die button
I'd sign up just to use that.
Not quite. Microsoft could offer the facility of tiles as a free download, which would let people opt for it on its own merit, rather than having the edifice shoved down their throats.
Great, only my tablet wont be running Windows.
