And she said;
"Of course I'm stressed! Not only is my bra killing me, it keeps dieing on me! Got a USB port handy?"
"Keep blasting, brave Curiosity! We're all right behind you!"
Well of course we are! Wouldn't wanna get zapped by standing where it could see us!
Re: Computers are not that different
"When it comes to running a company, the basics of business analysis are really not much different whether you're making computers, cars or fizzy drinks. You're still dealing with customers, marketing, product development etc."
Yeah, This guy said almost the same thing when he took over Commodore.
He's remembered as 'The End of Commodore'.
Re: All lies
"As any bible lover will tell you there is no such thing as evolution and the earth is only 6,000 years old."
As if I'd believe anything from some dude with the pages of his Bible stuck together... Ick!
Re: Couldn't have they just adopted lightning?
"Give me body parts, a big switch and an assistant called Igor and I'm happy.
Oh, and one of those sparky things that go bzzzzt"
Ah, nice to see the old school still at play. :)
But I prefer chromosome mash-ups to stitching together body parts, a computerized incubator chamber to hunchbacks, and, of course, the machine that goes 'bing' to sparky things.
Also, I gave up the castle years ago. A clinic in the trendier part of town, catering to the rich and vain's need for elective surgery is much more discreet, and profitable!
Re: Arrrr me hearties. Man tha mini-harpoons
"Hmmmm. Shooting down delivery-drones for their contents would likely make a good GTA minigame!"
Animal Crossing has had that for years, though the drones do look like balloons. :)
Well punishment is supposed to sting, isn't it?
That said, the lawyer does seem to be gouging a bit deep.
"True. Potential litigants include Nokia, Microsoft, Nokian Footwear and Kia Motors. Maybe they should make it a class action."
Forget them, How do you think the 'terrists' fearing Government of the US are going to respond to a foreign group openly announcing their intent to "Nuke Iowa"?
(IA is the postal code for Iowa, for those not in the states)
Re: The Cure
"turn China into a free country like the United States of America."
Congratulations on reviving from your long coma!
(PS, You've got a lot of news to catch up on!)
Re: Black Friday?
"This is why I stopped buying things."
Was that you sitting on the kerb with the the "Will commentard for food" sign, then?
Re: It has come to this
"You will not be allowed to play in this new world because you cheat, you are a bully, you are no fun.
Darn, you left out, "and your mother dresses you funny!"

Re: Magnetic variation twice over.
I thought it'd make things easier.
Now you'll not only have a North and South pole, but East and West ones as well.;)
Re: Tomato Tomato
Yeah, I'd love to hear the conversation after he updates his computer:
"What? Did you say you put a new Jurassic card in your box? WTF??"
"So.... as a pesron who's seen zero (0) episodes of Dr Who; why should I bother? And where should I start?"
First welcome to Earth, traveling pesron!
Second, I'd recommend starting with the fourth Doctor, he lasted the longest for a reason! He could really camp it up!
"This episode is going to have to be a blockbuster of epic proportions to live upto the hype being created by all the free publicity being given out for it."
Well it's tempted this Whodlum* into seeing if there's a reason to watch again.
Expecting the worse, hoping for the best.
*Whodlum - A fan of the series that was in it more for the OTT villains than the Doctor incarnations. (Cheesy, rubber suited monsters, the chewing the scenery Master, the monomaniacal Daleks and Cybermen... Ah, Heaven!)
"Now Bill Gates just needs to develop a version to stop the spread of MSWindows...."
Haven't you heard? Ballmer's Tablets, the quickest way to stop the spread of Windows!
Re: IPCC blaming heretics again?
"and a really quiet Sun"
"This is the latest in a string of recent outbursts, with yesterday's eruption among the most violent we've seen all year"
As for atmospheric warming... looks like the oceans have been taking the heat:
"The heat content of the oceans is growing and growing. That means that the greenhouse effect has not taken a pause and the cold sun is not noticeably slowing global warming."
At the rate things are going, we'll see Polar bears wrestling alligators by the end of the century. http://ghostsofdc.org/2013/07/15/holy-sht-two-alligators-found-in-rock-creek/
It'll be just fine
Until my hats won't fit!
"Sorry, only Sony approved headware is compatible with the Sony Smart Rug. Please contact us for a list of Sony compatible chapeaus."
Cue the techno babble for an epic trouble ticket.
"There's been a magnetic containment breach in Server Center One!
Black Goo every where, server room temperatures dropping!
So cold... so... cold..."
DOOOOMED, I tell ya!
Nowhere did I see anything banning pointy sticks!
MPs vs. MPFC, now there's a battle for the ages!
Re: Southpark is still on the air?
Nah, it's gone the way of the Simpsons; it keeps limping along, and nobody really cares about it... but it perseveres because it's an 'American Icon' now.
Doesn't know when he's lucky
If everyman on the street recognised Benioff as "That guy that keeps pushing companies to ram more ads down our throats", he might find his lifestyle becoming much less sedentary.
"next up, blame the wetware!"
Naw, They'll next blame it on inadequate DRM and pirates... somehow.
Re: Biased reporting...
Yes, there's a definite trend here. Anyone else noticed that it's the least funded/suffering the heaviest cutbacks branches of the US government that're actually doing some good?
"exploit flaws in Adobe's ColdFusion web app development software"
Well at least adobe jumped right on it and issued a fix!
"which began last December and are thought to be ongoing"
Well... err... At least it didn't affect any of the properly protected government sites!
"10 attacks against US government systems, eight of which are blamed on ColdFusion exploits"
OH! Err... at least third party anti-malware/ exploit software vendors caught it!
(Qaz knows, they charge enough for the protection they provide!)
"the breaches have been publicised by Anonymous under the a campaign dubbed Operation Last Resort"
OK, Er... I'll shut up now! :/
Re: I predict
"Heavy clouds and a lack of visibility in the British Isles until this comet expires."
Same here, cloudy, rain, early morning fogs, moonlight, it's like someone doesn't want me to see it!
Re: Somerset John Perhaps some reclassification required
"Maybe we can feed the chavs to the dolphins in a kind of exchange program?"
Make it political hacks instead of chavs, and you've got a deal!
Re: GM Foods
Yeah, that was one that 'could've happened', but luckily, didn't.
I'm not against GM crops where the changes enhance the quality or nutritional value of crops, but changes that're simply for the benefit of herbicide companies, or rendering vital foodstocks sterile to ensure the value of patents (Seriously, no patents for living things, ya greedy bastards!) should be a big no-no!
I'll drink coffee on occasion, But I prefer tea, or even soda.
It's the caffeine I need, being one of the true addicts that actually can't fall asleep without a good dose before bedtime.
That said, for the true coffee drinker, here's your cup!
"Shy and retiring Ballmer "
This phrase pained me... is it possible to get a hernia from laughing?
Not a bad idea
Hollow out an asteroid, set it spinning for artificial gravity, build a complete habitat within.
Of course, to maximise the usable area at the right gravity, you'd need to make it more cylindrical, and of course put the more dangerous activities in small satellites orbiting it for elfen safety reasons.
Mark it with your nation's logo, and you end up with something that looks similar to this.
Makes you think, don't it? (OK, so it mainly makes you think I'm off my meds, but still...)
"What's this One Direction thing? Never heard of them."
I have... wanna trade places?
Re: Microsoft Piles?
Just announced, All New Windows ANL Doughnut, the end of Windows Piles!
Face it, The future ain't what it used to be.
Still got what they wanted
Even bad attention is attention.
If you *really* wanted to see him cry, Imagine the effect of him throwing the floor open for questions... and nothing, not a single response.
Re: Why always so wrong
"We already know the answer."
Are you sure? It could all be a big misunderstanding, or even a bit of misdirection.
'42', or 'For tea, two'? Simple mistake, but it could mean that This is the REAL answer!
Now... what was the question again?
Re: Microsoft is late on tablets
Two different use cases.
One works for laptops/PCs, the other works for tablets, phones, and Ebook readers.
Trying to make PCs and laptops act like tablets and phones, or vice versa, just doesn't work.
The good people at Microsoft are unable to Grok that point.
Re: I see what you did there Google...
No doubt about it, Google has some seasoned programmers!
Re: I wonder how much Nintendo would pay for Xbox
"have you seen the Wii Mini yet?"
Ah yes, there's a piece of work!
"The Wii U doesn't have enough over the Wii to convince people to buy it. What shall we do?"
"Uh, make a Wii that does even less?"
"BRILLIANT! Bonuses all around!"
"That said, it's quite LIKELY it'll fail."
NASA, ESA, Japan, China, India, whoever.
On a Mars mission, that's the safe bet. But even if the mission fails, There's lessons to be learned, and new ideas to try.
Re: Am I misunderstanding?
"The real question is, which model - B1 or B2?"
Either way, keep'em away from teddy bears!
Re: Here we go again
"How many times can you save the universe?"
Every time... until you fail. Then reboot it, lather, rinse, repeat.

"I'd like to see a feedback mechanism that regulates the amount of nasal cartilage growth hormone in the bloodstream"
And in the future, Politicians, salesmen and lawyers will be known as 'tripods'.
Re: GM Foods
Ah, it's not likely that could ev... Oh, Fuuuu...
"Aiee! The Franchyse Thatte Will Notte Dye!"
Darn tootin'! As long as there's a dreg (or even less) of value to be gained by exploiting it,
it *will* continue!
Prediction: By 2029, after several mergers and acquisitions;
Star Wars Enterprise: The New Reboot.
After yet another time cock-up, The Federation and the Empire's most elite forces* try to save the Galaxy from Darth Voorhees and his army of Sith Klingons.
*Kirk, Luke, Han, and Spock, aided by Scotty and R2D2,of course
Re: I don't find this hard to believe
"But the NSA isn't just any large corporation, security is their one and only job."
Uh... no. 'Security' is in the name, but in true Orwellian doublespeak, their main purpose is to *break* others security, and obtain all the data they can.
I was wondering when the probe from Haumea would reach the inner planets.
