Re: Not such a bad idea
That puts the kibosh on your cloud storage then. PFFT!
Note to everyone
Don't use Google!
(other search engines are available eg. Ixquick,Duckduckgo)
Once you've found a site,bookmark it.
But you all knew this anyway, didn't you?
Google are just going through the motions to be seen to be doing something (again).
Re: Phone Apps
Aah the old Nokia 6310i.
I've got 2 of those and they're both goosed because the battery failed.
(the small backup one that you can't get that's on the PCB not the main battery)
"Long made the discovery in 2013, after examining a single fossil bone"
I think you could infer anything from one fossil bone.
Look out, flying Unicorns!
"only governments should steer how the web is run"
They can go to Hell.
(other choices of eternal damnation are available)
Re: Trolling for suckers
After only 25 posts I ain't Spartacus wins the Godwin prize.
Faecebook as is so often referred to on El Reg as "the free adserving social network" and rightly so.
It will die soon and become the realm of the underclass.
The first thing Microsoft will do is replace the bricks with tiles.
Give James Touchi-Peters his due.(Is that a real name?).
He's just trying to make a few quid.
If he rips off the gullible/narcissistic rich rather than the plebs who cares?
Cyanogen Mod + Link2SD
Sideload any apps you want via apk and uninstall everything Google.
Works fine for me and the battery lasts 3 times as long.
Use another search engine/home page etc. FFS
It's not hard.
Some might suggest it is the internet generally that is the hang out of fools
Yes but are you just looking or participating?
Gave you an upvote anyway
Kickstarter has now joined Farcebook and Twatter as the hangout of fools.
Kudos to Mr Brown though for having a laugh.
Samsung Galaxy S2
Cyanogen Mod (KItkat)
Opera (with Adblock)
Apps installed via APK (no Play Store)
Totally Google free and the battery life is tripled between recharges.
Similar on the PC.
Who needs Google. (I know IxQuick scrape them but...)
Re: Good on him...
Hmm. I always thought the mice were in control. But there you go
Do not trust anyone who makes up words.
Re: Marvin would love this news
It's not "Global Warming/Climate Change" that's the issue.
Or " running out of resources"
It's "Global Population is out of control.".
Through the well meaning advances of medicine the Darwinian concept of the survival of the fittest has been negated.
Re: Navigation buttons locked to address bar
There is an excellent fork of Firefox called Palemoon.
The developer has categorically stated that he will NEVER implement Australis.
Works well for me. Even has a migration tool to import your Firefox profile.
No, I got it too and upvoted.
(Where's the Keyser Söze icon when you need it)
Google Glass Mk2, a socket in your neck.
Do you want the blue one or the red one?
What is this for?
(If you down vote this then you've already drunk the Koolade and you don't know where it's going).
If you are driving your car then that is all you should be doing.
If you, are farcing or twatting your "friends" then pull over and do it to your hearts content.
This "SOCIAL NETWORKS" rubbish will end soon anyway when the plebs realise that everything they FACE or TWEET will come back to them.
It's already started, do a search using your favourite engine.......
South Sea Bubble
Bitcoin et al
Farcebook (it will come)
Beginning to get the picture?
It's the internet.
And you pay for it?
(expecting downvotes from the holier than thou crowd)
Fourth Law Of Robotics
Don't do evil....
I totally agree, they should be preserved for posterity in what ever format is current.
But then, I have a woman and it all becomes irrelevant.
Open your front door. There are people out there ....

Quite easy to find.

Mr R.P. Feynman, you've got to love him.
As an aside I've had the "Don't Panic" wallpaper on my S2 for nearly 2yrs,
Yes I do have a life,
I've just uninstalled the offending update KB2823324 ,like a good citizen.
Restarted as requested and lo and behold Windows Update offered it to me again!
Wasn't causing a problem anyway. I'll leave it off for now and see what transpires.
As Chrome is also included with a lot of software people will install on their computers without thinking (and I've never seen Firefox bundled in that way) I'm not suprised at the results.
Call me a cynic but....
Definition of "usage"
Surely if browser "usage" is the benchmark here them Firefox plus Adblock and/or NoScript will naturally have less results than Chrome and its umpteen adserver connections.
Methinks the results have been skewed.
A far more meaningful survey would be site visits surely.
