Oh noes, fanbois! iPhone 6 Plus shipments 'DELAYED' in the UK

unwarranted triumphalism

Re: £699

'good quality sound output'

The only method I have found for getting *that* from an iDevice is to use an external DAC to bypass the headphone output that Apple may have spent as much 1p on.

No, thank you. I will not code for the Caliphate

Anti-religious bigotry must pay well.

But I guess there are jobs I can't take on, either.

e-Borders fiasco: Brits stung for £224m after US IT giant sues UK govt

Re: Clusterf**k

It's obviously QA's fault for reporting all those defects.

Our code is perfect; there can't be anything wrong with it!

EE network whacked by 'PDP authentication failure' blunder

unwarranted triumphalism

Coming to the end of my contract with EE...

Can't come too soon.

Apart from the creepy multiple phone calls (every day) begging me to stay with them, I'm a big fan of their habit of randomly dropping carrier on me, taking 5 minutes to load web pages, and responding to all attempts to send email from my smartphone with an SMTP error messgae in French.

A colleague has recommended GiffGaff - any good?

Say goodbye to the noughties: Yesterday’s hi-fi biz is BUSTED, bro

Re: This new stuff looks boring

Pretty much. And it's distracting, too.

A single LED - to indicate its power status - should be quite sufficient.

Thumb Up

Re: Wow. FUD sprayers are *still* at the electric car?

Some very interesting info, thank you for that. Especially the account of how it deals with cold weather; I had been curious.

There's certainly an argument that for the journeys the vast majority of car owners do - under 10 miles in mostly urban areas - that this vehicle is an excellent choice. I find it a bit odd that so many commenters will suddenly, with no warning, need to undertake a drive of over 300 miles. Perhaps those bringing up this objection are either projecting their particular use case onto everyone ('I need to do this, therefore so does everyone'), or maybe it's a case of FUD as you allude to.

It's good to hear some positive feedback to counter the relentless negativity.

Would I buy one? When you pry my Scott CR1 Pro from my cold dead hands, then maybe I'll consider it. :)

Uninsured?

Mobe-orists, beware: Stroking while driving could land you a £4k fine

Doesn't happen

Supply details of just ONE alleged incident, with full names and addresses of all persons involved, registration details of all vehicles involved, exact date&time, and the coordinates, and I'll believe you.

Until then I'm calling BS.

Reg man inhales the smooth, non-cancerous, taste of USB nicotine

unwarranted triumphalism

Aren't e-cigs the same as...

http://www.nicorette.co.uk/products/inhalator ?

They claim it to be 'clinically proven'.

So do the Puritan Brigade find this more, or less, objectionable than the other e-cigs on the market?

unwarranted triumphalism

I see the Puritan Brigade have assembled...

Not that they have anything constructive to say, just the usual scare stories.

An e-cig helped me quit nearly 5 years ago and I have not used nicotine since, nor have I been tempted to.

But you're not interested in success stories, are you?

...lies, absolute lies. The research says nothing of the kind. Cannabis remains what it always has been - a killer drug for unemployable wasters. It has no use whatsoever, except for the smell of it marking out the user as someone to be avoided.
