Can I be the first pedant to point out that the picture you have is of a white rhino. Too rare I guess for you to find a decent library picture? I demand you send one of your Reg photographers out to get a proper picture and I volunteer to go along.
White rhinos graze and black rhinos eat from bushes and trees so have a more head up posture. They have a pointier mouth too but it's in profile...
Isn't the workaround for the 5s owner to unlock with their pinky or other alternative finger that they're not prodding their phone with? That removes this hack from the hands of your average thief.
5S is still available in Carphone Warehouse
and no doubt other phone retailers
It depends on what queue you go in at passport control. Not everyone has the new fangled biometric passports.
Re: Do they mix?
I have their 80s Electronic Anthems and they're not mixed. So technically, they could claim that they've put the effort into researching which songs to pull together to create the compilation but that's as far as their effort has gone.
I wish I'd copyrighted some of my old mix tapes from the good old days. Oh hang on...
Surely it's Apple's re-design of the humble Lava Lamp?
The more platforms their customers can access their docs from the better surely.
I don't see Google being humiliated by allowing Google Maps and searches to be done from an Apple phone...
Lots of rave reviews but in reality it's disappointing
Had mine a week now and I'm waiting on Vodafone to send me the return bag.
The build quality, screen and camera are all awesome, yes, but the power and volume buttons are rubbish, I have to look to find them and it's too easy to adjust the volume by mistake during a call.
The HTC Sync Manager is buggy and crashes or just doesn't work. The bits that do work are poorly documented and only work patchily, such as only transferring half my music files over.
Lastly, though Android has some cool features, it also has some annoying issues in the email client and the browsers (and I tried Android, Chrome, Opera and Firefox).
Very disappointed, it's much cheaper than an iPhone with an awesome spec but in terms of everyday usability it's a fail from me. Maybe if Android improves and can provide some kind of quality PC syncing experience that is beyond HTC's developers abilities, maybe I'll try again with whatever is the big thing next year. The HTC Two?
Re: Oh boy....
It's not difficult, babies only say 3 things: hungry, tired, nappy change please.
Re: Excuse me.
Wowfood could be just quoting General Disarray of South Park.
I do wonder though if the Simpsons writers had patented all their ideas whether they'd now be winning the Apple vs Samsung patent wars...
It'd be useful if you could provide links back to previous years predictions from IBM. Will we be laughing about predictions of flying cars? Perhaps some of their old predictions actually came true?
Personally I always feel conned by this nonsense. I've been tranished forever by the PR bullsh** from Segway before it was revealed, I thought we were talking jet packs or something exciting...
Re: I liked Farcry 2
I'm still busy in Skyrim and there's a queue of games on my Amazon wishlist, cheapest gets bought first.
Parappa The Rapper?
Flow and Katamari Damacy definitely deserve it, but where is Parappa The Rapper?
Re: Excellent bit of music
How can you be useless at Spy Hunter? It was easy. Playing on the Speccy version my mate and I could do the whole thing on 1 life.
Oh, those happy summers days. It beat going out in the fresh air and talking to people...
It's not difficult people
Some of the comments here make out it's difficult to get a high res screen. It's not, use the filter on your shopping website of choice and there is a lot of choice, mostly for reasonable money. I'm on my third full-hd screened laptop and my monitors are all 1920x1200 and have been for years.
I don't know how others cope with using Visual Studio on a low res screen.
If there is to be an advancement to higher res screens, bring it on!
Do the glasses have headphones built in or do you have to hear both programmes at the same time?
List of hobbies?
Why are they linking to Wikipedia for a list of hobbies when we have the UK's own King Of Hobbies, Simon Quinlank.
For this hobby you will need a flask of weak lemon drink...
Couldn't agree more
Will 28 has it spot on.
I'm baffled why the Scrolls and Fallout games get released with so many bugs. I could understand if it was something bizarre like when you go to x location and talk to y person in z order then your pet dog floats about but they are releasing with such obvious and basic bugs.
Spend some money on testing guys. It's a win-win investment.
Why are HP doing another tablet after the TouchPad? Was it just WebOS that killed it?
I just don't get HP's strategy.
Are the peadophiles the criminals here...
...or is it the business man in his suit and tie?
Yeah, it's the paedophiles.
Well done anonymous.
Does this include the Playstation hack?
4 million sounds a bit high, does this include all the bank details stolen by the Playstation hackers?
In which case it's not all down to the consumers being complacent!
Tried it, doesn't work (or hasn't, yet)
I tried it on my blog with a faux award to Cadburys for the Double Decker and yet I've still not been contacted to send me any free chocolate.
World Chocolate Bar of The Year my arse...
I had thought about going for Porsche next.
These aren't the blu-rays you're looking for...
Am I the first to comment that? I suspect not.
Of course, they *are* the blu-rays I'm looking for, yay!
Got one in my loft, the keyboard is better than anything you can get today...
Buy, buy, buy
So if the stock is still down after the note has been proven to be untrue, surely the stock is currently a bargain?
After a 25% drop, even a small portion of that value being returned equals a tidy profit. It wouldn't surprise me if the fraudster who shorted is now going long...
Chief Exec wants another payrise
Somerset needs to save money considering what they're already paying their chief exec and what they paid to get rid of the last one.
Fallout New Vegas next?
Black Ops may be buggy but it's nothing compared with the many, many bugs in the latest Fallout. It's a great game but it crashes way too often, characters in walls, flying dogs, etc.
For £40 I expect a bit of testing...
Whoop de doo
So it's a Seat re-branding of the Scirocco with some hybrid tech. Yawn.
Well done chap
Does he do bookings? My birthday is coming up....
But the hole in the middle will either be too big for my record player or too small for my CD player...
Wrong - their claims were way to quick
So they polled women? That was their first mistake, if they'd polled their partners they would've got a more accurate figure. In reality it takes much longer...
The way to check if your credit card details are affected is to type your credit card number into Google and do a search. To be extra thorough, also do this search on Yahoo, MSN, etc.
That'll do it.
Anyone without the time or skills to do this, please post your credit card numbers here and I will search for you.
Oliver Mayes - shame on you!
This guy prevented 1 or more people getting run over or an accident with other vehicles without regard for his own safety. In my book that makes him a "hero".
Misery guts Oliver Mayes would rather not get involved and let these kids, old people and other motorists be subjected to fate and the incompetence of a royal mail employee.
have the french surrendered yet?
But how big is the box? ;O)
Matt Bryant loves HP
Wooooooohh!!!! I'm gonna tell everyone.
Matt wants to kiss HP and everything. I saw them holding hands last week!
Now back to the crazy packaging stories....
Eva is having good comment for you
My favourite comments on The Telegraph are by Eva who I've spotted several times responding to Jeff Randall pieces. She "is" a young lady from Poland working in London:
"Reason I write you is I have offered job me in Peppermint Hippo café for mens last night I go interview . They tell me much mens with lot money including 'oligarchs' you mention above here. Many mens from 'City'. I have to make coffee and take it to table and that is all he tell me I make £1,000 per day in tip tax-frees! Is this correct? I work in Café now and make £40 per day and tax--what different in Peppermint Hippo ?? He say uniform provided of costume of swimming because hot there. I see some girls so hot they take off costume ! My mother always told me : " Ava , Nie wychodzi jedyny przy wieczór późny nocny albo wilk będzie jeść was!" which means : " Ava , if you wear swimming costume in public , always shave armpits and empty bottom first !" I never forget my mother's advice . "
All this TMWRNJ talk has got me in a flap. Flap like a birds wing.
Mines the one with a Corrs shrine in the inside pocket
I said Egg! Bring back TMWRNJ!
In South Africa they have a bird called the Secretary Bird which has long legs and eats snakes. I've seen one, and they swallow!
Cynical Marketing Ploy
Go to Barcelona. Not 1 shop I went in last week were sold out and they all had plenty. This is either bad planning by Nintendo or deliberate.
Won't somebody think about the children?
Who cares? People will always find a way to get music for free. Record it from the radio, TV or off your mates.
Going back to his roots!?!
Of course this decision is entirely motivated by going back to Bond's roots in the books and nothing to do with Bentley offering them more money to feature one of their cars.
Maybe for this thing/method to work you need a machine to receive the message. So no time travel emails can be recieved until it gets built.
BTW I am submitting this comment FROM THE FUTURE!!
