Die-hard fan. Very bored.

Expecting to see "Just popping out for some tomatoes" on the Profanisaurus any day now.
He should thank his lucky stars it was a just fine and this is Great Britain
I can only imagine (from his name) that he may have also have been stoned (and not in a terribly good way) had pulled this stunt in his ancestral home.
And were all but 200 of them Republicans?
Aye, sir, it does.
Sounds like 80% of yanks are retarded; the other 20% seem ok.

Re: The rise and fall of the US empire.
In the pursuit of power, an educated populace is something of a hurdle. Why else do you think education is such a low priority, planned disaster?
America... Land of the "free"
I find that "Controlled Bursts V" helps.
Their coffee is shite. I think I'll order a grande chai tea latte (with soya) and offer to pay 50p. Think it'll work?
Yeah, yeah, yeah ... whatever
And when you [Microsoft] have finally managed to corral all of those 360 users into the new technology pen, the gate will be slammed shut and you will do what you wanted to do in the first place. Fuck off!
Not playing their game
Watched series 1 months before it was made available in the UK. The same for season 2. And again for season 3. I didn't want to wait. I did, however, think the show was SO utterly amazing that I felt compelled to fork out for the blue ray releases of seasons 1 and 2, and I will do the same again for season 3. So, have I been dishonest?
I really can't be arsed to wait out the glacial pace at which these show get released. I look forward to the day when shows like GoT get released worldwide on disc and on day 1.
Re: What a dreadful decision
Don't know how, bound to be slow, but gotta be possible.
And if they hadn't bothered at all...
The rest of the world would be more productive without Twitter :-)
Disabled Java on my browsers months ago. Apple is just catching up.
Is it... another patent litigation case?
Fix Mountain Loin you fruity f***ers.
They're all at it!
Sod quality, let's litigate...
I wish the fruity one was as keen to fix the god-awful stuttering/choppy audio bug it introduced with OS X Mountain Loin as they are to throw money at lawyers. At the rate they're going I doubt anyone with upgrade to OS X Devon Rex when it comes out.
Mac owner, sadly.
I'm wondering if the time has come to disable Java on my machines. Can't really see the point of it anyway.
Re: Cupertino Head Cook lashes out at rumour mill
The way they operate is also killing their PC sales (probably). I'm waiting to purchase a second iMac but I'll be damned if I give them my money for obsolete technology; in other words, I'm waiting for the Retina Display technology to hit the iMac line before I give them any more cash.
Re: I'm no fan, BUT!
Oh, shut your pie hole. MS Office on the Mac is actually a decent product and it was THAT expensive -- c'mon you own a Mac and you're worried about pennies. I've actually used LibreOffice and its previous incarnations; it's slow and it requires Java. I've used iWork, too and it's so messed-up I'd be amazed if they captured ANY MS Office to iWork converts.
Always used Office; always will. It works. I know it. Why change for change's sake.
Java is the real problem here.
Re: Try this one on for size...
... and they'll just assume you're telling a fib or being evasive and discard your application. How Orwellian would that be? An active Facebook / Tweety presence for them to nose at would be a prerequisite.
Re: With every passing discovery,
I hear you, but godbotherers are a slippery bunch. Your friend will simply say that their god created the planet's inhabitants, too, and that they must "be saved" or "submit" and the entire charade will play out as it has here.
Look what happened to the New World when it was discovered by the Christians. I doubt we've changed all that much.
It's quite likely that the first interstellar explorers to depart this solar system will not be human. Our ambassadors will probably be the product of our species' ongoing research into robotics and artificial intelligence. They're unlikely to be hampered by such short lifespans, or the need to eat, drink and breathe.
Rise above it, old bean.
Re: Re: Here Apple Take Your Nasty Medicine
You're a bit quiet there Tom. No rebuttal?
More petrol, please :)
for no other reason than to annoy the fuck out out you :)
Possibly time for Apple to think about creating those jobs in another country?
People hate success and hate seeing someone do well
It's like the school playground here, sometimes. You know, the one in which the bright kid is bullied mercilessly by the half-wits for just doing well.
I don't think Apple are any more or less evil than other corporations using Chinese labour. I think it's disingenuous to suggest otherwise.
The real evil lies in the value Western consumers place in their toys, demanding that all manufacturers race to the bottom to produce ever cheaper goods. Blame yourselves, you all deserve what you get.
You're a hypocrite
There, I said it. So now enlighten me and show me a company, other than Apple, with more ethical manufacturing policies and PROVE TO ME WHY THEY ARE SO.
I'm waiting for your reply :o)
Your post is dripping with the bitterness of entitlement. You're precisely what is wrong with the American economy.
Vodafone seem pretty good at something, then -- and that something appears to be not paying taxes. WIsh I was as well connected.
What were they smoking?
Force the MNOs to disable hand-over on their macrocell networks. Job done.
Can't argue with that!
Awww... I hope they find something soon.
Then we can all stop believing in fairy tales and do some real thinking as a species.
So, basically, IPCom adds nothing of worth to the ecosystem yet it makes a pretty penny from it. How have we ended up with a system in which corporate parasites thrive?
WTF is a "female seat"?
Well, if the fat bastard was a safety risk then he should have been turned away. Tut, money talks.
As lovely as the Samsung is, I can't get along with Android and I'll be upgrading my HTC mobe in April... to an iPhone 4 (not the 4S).
I'm so terribly, terribly bad.
He could also be studying for a job in a creative industry whilst holding down a job as a barista. Therefore his feelings could be entirely valid and the guy diminishing him could just be a twat.
They do say "Ignorance is bliss."
I'm sorry ...
The embedded SIM would be preloaded with gateway credentials for all operators. Please could illustrate where the lock-in is? Oh, silly me: it's Apple, I see what you did there.
It's time ...
We are one of the few species Nature gifted with the ability and desire to kill it's own. Isn't it time we put this particular quirk to good use by allowing and actively encouraging the hunting and killing of poachers. Perhaps even capturing, trying them and then, upon conviction, releasing them into a game reserve where they can be legally dispatched by either trained hunting teams or captive species they've helped bring to the edge of extinction? People like to hunt, so why not hunt the selfish, worthless bastards who reduce our world's bio-diversity.
