Where the hell do you find a beaver to get its arse juice?

Damn that is so perverted, this will surely be banned as was the use of hamsters and toilet rolls by EU directive 234/45.ARS3/Y0R-UP/342-2

Has anyone asked the beavers for their opinion?

How

How can something as simple as an upgrade or new installation be made as difficult or as complicated as this?

Ah, when Microsoft is involved.

Lets see now, how complicated or difficult will it be to upgrade to iOS 7 or Mavericks?

Wonder ow much it will cost me?

Will I lose folders or have to reinstall?

Now this is a clever idea!

I'm surprised that other cable manufacturers haven't started to produce charging only cables for travel, with a new cable standard, maybe in Day Glo green. Hope he has a patent though this seems unlikely.

Don't believe for one minute he was serious about the attempt, maybe just looking for the publicity, I mean would a sane person attempt a crossing just at the time when the weather is becoming so changeable across the Atlantic?

With such a tiny open boat it would have been almost suicide.

In MASSIVE surprise, world+dog discovers Nokia checked out Android

LarsG

Mistakes

Nokia, once the leaders made mistakes years ago, holding on to Symbian for too long then bottling it with Meego and failing to jump on the Android band wagon.

Now part of he 'empire' innovation will be stifled by the needs of MS.

Independence turned to dependence. How sad this has been for the maker of the worlds most iconic phone ever, the 8210.

Colours

I have just realised.....

The 'cheap phones' are not aimed at tech minded El Reg readers...

They are aimed at Girlfriends, Wives and Daughters....

My daughter aged 4 saw the pink one and said, 'daddy I WANT that for Christmas!' I asked why and her answer 'its PINK.'

Just you wait and see, it will be a GIRLY best seller, easy to use, works out of the box, simple, all female celebs will be carrying them.

Freebie Pages......

Most people have already paid for them, only new buyers will benefit from this so does it mean those existing customers who buy a new phone and have the productivity suites will get a credit or their money back?

Not that great a deal is it?

Especially

after navigating through 11 different 'press 1' or press '6' then they keep you on hold and play naff music for 20 minutes and while you are on hold, reminding you that your call is important to them, they are busy but you are in a queue and will be answered shortly, or you might want to email instead.

Of course your call is important to them..... You are giving them free money.

That much for a dated looking LCD watch that has limited functionality? Have to charge it everyday? Now that is practical easpecially considering my watch never needs a battery and never needs charging.

I think that it's only use is to save you looking a fool holding a 7" screen phone to your ear shouting "Hello, HELLOOOOOO..."
