Re: Dear Article Author
Can I get me one of these on eBay ?
Re: Arrrr me hearties. Man tha mini-harpoons
All you need to do is order one of these:
from amazon and you can use it to play "Let's see what the neighbours got for Christmas".......
Good News !
I changed your oil and spark plugs and as a bonus I can confirm that your air bags work (ed) !

I am blessed with an April birthday, by which time I hope the early adopters will have cleared up all the launch issues and I will be able to choose easily.

No, he means "In contravention of the Geneva Convention".........
Au contraire - I live on The Mall in Preston (google PR2 6DU) - no quite as salubrious as the London one.....
2000 + ?
When did 'basic web browsing' suddenly need a computer that scores 2000+ on PC Mark 7 ? I don't know what the reviewer regards as 'basic web browsing' but I can pretty much get by with my work PC that I suspect scores about 3 or 4 on PC Mark 7.......
The truth is that the market for this type of fairly expensive (especially the £1k+ devices) is extremely limited as if all you do is web browsing, e-mail and office apps then you can quite happily get on with a much cheaper device (or, as is the case more and more, not need to upgrade your still operational 3 year old one). Sure, for people who need a genuinely powerful device for their work or play may want one, how many of them need one that weighs less and are willing to pay extra for the 1kg weight saving ?
The only real benefit I can see from these devices is the improved screen resolution but whilst 1900x1080 certainly looks better than 1366x768, I'm not sure that it's £1k better.
Bankers learning through gaming....
Perhaps if more bankers played GTA they would be a bit more careful not to get filmed buying their cocaine and banging prositutes......

I was thinking "2000 pound cars - what are they all driving Lotus Elise's or something ?" - 2000 lbs. is around 910kg - I would be impressed if you could find many cars in the USA that weigh this little.....
Re: Being right doesn’t make the OP wrong
On the issue of the US civil war and slavery, would it be pertinent to point out that the emancipation proclamation (the executive order Lincoln passed to free the slaves) only applied to slaves held in the southern states - it did not in any way free slaves held in the actual states of the union (some union states were emancipated, others were not at the time of the proclamation) - it's purpose was not to free all slaves but to fill a big hole in the recruitment drive for the Union armies (specifically provided for in the proclamation).....
The 'freed' slaves, of course, were not granted actual citizenship or given the right to vote or anything like that, either.
No, they used to force people to wear the asbestos pants, then they stopped but now that policy is being re-enforced........
"remain alarmed that my local hospital has been replaced by a forest."
That's not wrong, it's just pre-emptive......
That's what I thought - $18 markup on the console seems like a pretty good deal but 3 x the price for the controller and you only get one ! Let's face it, pretty much everyone except the loneliest bastard in the world is going to want two controllers at least (if only to swap out when the battery dies mid-game) so the profit immediately jumps to more like $50 per unit sold in reality.
Re: I AM ANONYMOUS !
"I have chosen my pseudonym to be precisely the same as my current real name."
Aha ! The double-double bluff !

Oh shit, hang on, I forgot to tick the box thing.
Re: ♫ I'm an asshole, the world's biggest asshole ♫
Amusingly for me it brought up the bit from 'No cure for cancer' where Denis Leary does the "Don't eat the tuna....Why ? ....Beacuse dolphins get caught in the nets......what about the tuna ?....fuck them, they taste good...." diatribe.
Are dolphins actually endangered ? As far as my extensive 10 second googling can ascertain, a few species are but not many. As long as the species that are being hunted for nibbles are not endangered then why should we care any more about these than about any other non-endangered food species ?
I think Sony are probably right...
Now that you can buy a TV with internet and network media streaming built right in to the monitor, why the hell would you want to pay extra for that ability in your gaming console ? I would rather the money went on making it a better games machine.
When I first got my PS3 it was always in use as the house DVD/BD/Streaming Media server as well as games console but now that the combination of TV and Sky box does all that guff independently, the PS3 is only used for games.
The market requirements have changed from when the PS3 came out to now, and I think Sony are actually going the right way, rather than Microsoft who are trying to sell you a box that plays games and also does a whole bunch of stuff that my TV / PVR already do better.
Re: Ooh, ooh, me too!
No, that was me. Sorry.
(In my defence, it's a pretty sexy dog...)
The other thing to bear in mind for the (wrong) car industry comparison is that BMW also make Minis and Rolls Royces (so as if Blackberry also made HTC and those hideous gold plated mobiles that cost a bazillion quid) and Mercedes also make Smart cars and have huge chunks of other (mostly far east) car manufacturers, so whilst the brands may not sell that many cars thenselves, the companies product goes into a lot more sales too (not to mention motorbikes for BMW and commercial vehicles for MB)....

It's utopian socialism - every member of the society contributes their labour as they are able and in return the society provides for all the needs of its members. Socialism does not need money or its distribution to function, it just needs a lack of some pigs regarding themselves as more equal than others (which is the most unrealistic aspect of Star Trek - all the technogabble stuff is probably achievable but socially engineering the human race so none of the species takes advantage of such a utopia is somewhat more far fetched.....).
I don't want a watch, I want a Leela-from-Futurama wristcomp
Why can't I have a proper wrist/forearm mounted device like Leela wears ? It could have a nice soft plastic type body on the top of the forearm with some sort of neopreney sleeve to put it on with (you could sell two different mounts for left and right handed users), the computerey bit* could have a nice curved touchscreen on the outside around the size of a smartphone and then the device could flip open to reveal another, bigger screen inside with a keyboard underneath.
Mount a camera next to the outer screen for video calling, use bluetooth headphones (or even wired ones with the wire neatly concealed up your sleeve).
The whole device can be slim enough to fit inside a jacket sleeve, so you can still pull back the sleeve to glance at the time or other update information like with a watch but it's big enough to be able to fit a fully functional smartphone/small tablet functionality and battery life.
I want this to be made right now. Why can't I have it ?

Re: Steam trains
I also thought of this technique, having drawn up a few quick calculations the only thing I can't tie down is how many coal shovellers I will need to keep the hydropneumatic fliper mechanism running at an adequate speed.
Did the original spec mention what FPS was required when running Crysis ?

Re: Double-edged sword
I enjoy my 'Me Time' too but I would find it very tricky to do so whilst driving ( I have a manual transmission so trying to drive with just one hand would be potentially quite dangerous.....)
Just a Windows minute.......
The phrase "Windows Minute" has become commonplace amongst my colleagues and I - when asked how long a task will take the reply "Just a Windows minute" equates to "I have no fucking idea, could be anywhere between one second and just after the heat death of the universe...."
