The end of Java?
Re: 15,000 what kind?
Fart Apps but with different tones, loudness and duration.
There are many stupid people in the world.
Did someone actually explain to these students that Star Wars is a film and that artistic licence has been used?
Why haven't they been working on something more important?
But Siri is the least used program on my iPhone since I asked what the latest Championship League tables were and it gave me the biography of Adolf Hitler.
These voice enables are a pure gimmick with very limited appeal.
Also when in company you look a pr*ck talking at your phone or computer, then getting angry because it just doesn't understand you.
Re: US Authorities
The D of J have spent the last year deleting all the evidence of their communications with Dot Com prior to them stealing his servers.
Not more malware on Android phones!
Got to be a Daily Mail news flash, or a troll by a fanbois.
The next lot of mobile phones circa 2013, will have even bigger screens so there will be an opportunity to install a disc drive in them. Problem solved.
It when they got planning permission to stick them into the Irish Sea in an area the size of Devon and Cornwall that it all went mad. The maintainance costs appear to be outweighing the production of electricity.
Also the generators themselves, stuck out in the 'calm' Irish Sea have a lifespan of only 10 years.
A financial time bomb, in the short term the firms installing them make lots of money.
In the long term the Government ie taxpayer will have to pay to put it right.
They're not leaving
They're not leaving because of copyright, they are leaving because it is just a short lived fad with some people.
'Hey I've got to join Instagram' they shout and a few months later 'just so boring to keep it up'.
Granted there will be a hardcore but face it, what's the point of it? Especially when it doesn't benefit you.
Carry On Camping
Will it have an integrated toilet, or will they have an attached portaloo?
Spying on Governments and politicians? It would be like trying to understand and make sense of the residents in a Californian Asylum for the criminally insane.
IPhone screen just not big enough
The problem with the iPhone 5 is that the screen was just not big enough.
It's the phones with the briefcase sized displays that are selling like hot cakes, people no longer want to be understated and sophisticated, instead they want to stand out from the crowd be gaudy and vulgar.
What better way than to pull out a 'massive'' and flash it round a darkened bar. The fashion for men with clothes that have map pockets and combat style trousers where a phone can be secreted halfway down your trouser leg in a pocket meant for ammunition just stokes the sales. Even though the closest they get to the Great Outdoors is crossing the road to get a sandwich. For women the choice is easier, they can carry the 'massive' in a massive handbag (note how little bags are not so 'in') even when wearing skinny jeans they remain connected.
The next generation of 5",6" and probably 7" phones may yet be developed, they probably won't sell well though, you'd look like such a pr*ck getting that out in a bar.
A patch to patch the patched patch.
I feel safer now.
I think HMRC will look at this and wonder why they continue with a business that has no value.....
Questions may be asked as to where the profit is?
Re: Oh dear@ Yes Me
Bearded sandal wearing tree hugging Guardian reading Lib Dem voter?
I assume this because of your vitriolic accusatory, burn them at the stake outburst.
Mind you, you could be Spanish, Portuguese, Irish, Maltese, Greek safe in the knowledge that the Bank of Germany will keep you afloat during your occupation.
The end of pre-ticked boxes?
What will the Banks think?
Have they not got better things to do with their time?
Re: Prison drone
Sadly they export their dross back to the UK now, most living in the south of England.
If you think that your conversations are not monitored because you live outside China.....
Think again, because that's the stuff they really want to listen to.
It won't matter to the 53% of the population who can neither read nor write, as to the purchasers, who reads the things anyway?
Never mix tech with sex
The Engineers Song.
Ah-hum, titty-bum, titty-bum, titty-bum,
An engineer told me before he died,
An engineer told me before he died,
I have no reason to believe he lied,
Ah-hum, titty-bum, titty-bum, titty-bum,
Ah-hum, titty-bum, titty-bum, titty-bum.
An engineer told me before he died,
And I have no reason to believe that he lied,
(Chorus) That no matter whatever he tried,
His girlfriend was never satisfied!
(Chorus) That girl she had a .... so wide
She could never be satisfied,
(Chorus) The engineer was a designer,
Measured the bore of her v......,
(Chorus) Then he built her a .... of steel,
Powered by a bloody great wheel,
(Chorus) Yes he built a bloody great wheel,
Two brass balls and a .... of steel
(Chorus) Two balls of brass were filled with cream,
And the whole bloody lot was driven by steam.
(Chorus) He tied his girl to the leg of the bed,
Tied her hands above her head,
(Chorus) There she lay demanding a ....,
He shook her hand and wished her luck,
(Chorus) Round and round went the bloody great wheel,
In and out went the .... of steel,
(Chorus) Up and up went the level of steam,
Down and down went the level of cream.
(Chorus) Till at last the maiden cried,
"Enough! Enough! I am satisfied!"
(Chorus) Now we come to the tragic bit,
There was no way of stopping it,
(Chorus) It went like the piston of a train,
He should have fitted a gearing chain,
(Chorus) Clouds of steam blew out the top,
There wasn't a way to make it stop,
(Chorus) She was split from ... to ...,
And the whole .... thing was covered in ....,
(Chorus) It jumped off her, it jumped on him,
And then it buggered their next of kin,
(Chorus) It jumped on a departing bus,
And the mess it made caused quite a fuss,
(Chorus) The last time, Sir, that .... was seen,
Was in Buckingham Palace .... the Queen,
(Chorus) There's a moral to the story I tell,
If you see it coming better run like hell,
(Chorus) Nine months later a child was born,
With two brass balls and a bloody great horn,
(Chorus) The warning in the story is,
Always fit a safety switch,
(Chorus) The crux of the matter is plain to be seen,
You should never trust a MACHINE!
Close enough to barbecue the prawns and sausages but not close enough to warm the beer.
"Earlier on today, apparently, a woman rang the BBC and said she heard there was a hurricane on the way; well, if you're watching, don't worry, there isn't, but having said that, actually, the weather will become very windy, but most of the strong winds, incidentally, will be down over Spain and across into France."
Nothing has changed has it?
Re: 15 million more androids @Phoenix50
@Eadon is mistaken, there are only 291 in circulation.
Is there nothing they will do to get publicity?
Will be a great disappointment to the many gun happy Americans who would consider owning the best weapon in the Galaxy a right to bear arms.
This is Business Asian Style......
Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is business style

Less than 20 minutes to cook rice.
If you need it quicker buy the ready made stuff.
People have opinions, it's not a crime.
There are so many people who spout nonsense and talk crap that we have to or end up having listened to it in our daily lives. Usually we just roll our eyes and move on.
Publish crap and nonsense on Twitter someone gets offended and then jumps up on to the bandwagon and wants to punish, jail or make an example of the fool.
In real life you'd put your argument against the crap, tell the person they are a prat, move on and have nothing more to do with them. That's the way to deal with it.
Having an opinion is not a crime however idiotic misguided or stupid or offensive your opinion is.

New legislation: section 20/23/1847/329-234/ AW
The Government has declared that the population will be micro chipped, DNA sampled and tattoo'd with an identification number.
This is being implemented to protect your freedoms and your rights and to protect the population against as yet unknown threats and dissent. You do not have the right to appeal. You have nothing to fear from your Government if you have nothing to hide.
Failure to comply will result in you being declared a non-citizen entitled to no state facilities.
You cooperation is appreciated.

The Iranians should take note in 2014 America will have withdrawn its troops from Afganistan.......
Either keep a low profile and make friends
Develop a nuclear arsenal
Or annoy the Demi God USA and expect swift regime change
The choice as they say, is with you.

Re: Winning the battle...
You cannot be everything to everybody, there is always some compromise in a product.
Light portable, long battery life, work station, power user, desktop, handbag size....
No one product will take over.

Danger of damage
My mum used to throw the board and contents on the board at my dad, usually when she found him helping himself to the pile of money like a banker.
She refused to play after one such episode where my Gran was giving my dad unauthorised loans to keep him in the game. It is so much more tactile when you can throw objects at other players.....
I miss those days..
But if it were my iPad/Tablet flying through the air I might not see the funny side.
Lets be honest
It's like buying into a reasonably good condition classic car, but it won't have seatbelts, heated screens, central locking, fuel injection, alloy wheels, MP3 player, air con etc
What you get is a piece of history in all it's idiosyncratic glory.
Talking through their backsides again.
Letting smaller firms have a slice of the action?
It never ever happens, it's always the bigger suppliers who get the whole cake and make a mess of it, usually because a Polititian or two have a part time job and sit on the board as an advisor. How many times do we hear of politicians retiring or losing their seat only to become directors of the companies they favoured while in power.
Politicians are bent, this is pure sound bite media.
Re: Bulimics have been doing this for years....
Yes but this machine will prevent the stomach acids from ruining their teeth.
No no no
A stomach contents sucking up machine!
Though I do see a market for it in Celebrity circles........
Soon there will be Celebs signing themselves into the Betty Ford Clinic for their addiction to the thing.
Where the average pay in these emerging markets would be classed as slave labour anywhere else in the developed world unless the product is being sold for peanuts, less that £20 say, it is doubtful that they will sell at all.
In fact I think £20 to the average Bangladeshi, Indian, Peruvian, Angolan, Anfgani, Mongolian,Malian etc etc etc will make the phone out of reach for most. They would have limited sales for those with better paid jobs in the emerging market because the phone would be competing with other brands.
Great, the protest will really have an effect on the Authorities, I'm sure they will change their minds once they feel the power of the protest.
They appear to be amateurs at it, such little profit for so much work.
Opportunistic fleecing by a record company, I bet Dylan only gets pennies from it anyway. As to the 'new material' there is usually a reason why it was never included in the original albums.
Usually the artist thought it was crap and didn't want to publish it.
'New material' albums are a record company scam to fleece the idiots who don't see it for what it is.
Google will tow the line, it is after all one of the biggest markets in the world and Google is after all, ALL about money.
As nutty as a nut cake on nut tablets......
As paranoid as a paranoid thing on paranoid tablets....
What! you mean it's all TRUE!
Apparently according to the news broadcast they found a significant number of additional surface tablets that were unclaimed by staff but linked by serial number to a theft from a Microsoft Store two weeks ago. Police speculate they were left behind by the burglars.
Shatners ashes will probably go into space.....
