'...the blunder is far worse than Apple's gotofail...'
No it isn't.
What if he sends them...
A picture of a spider?
The JPL coding standards forbid it, with good reason.
That would void the warranty.
Apple are the real villains here.
Re: A nest of men who co-ordinate attacks on women
How awful, she's hurt your feelings.
An easy solution...?
If any smart-alec wants to suggest that Beijing use Boris' solution to particulate pollution -http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-15762967 - they can feel free.
Aren't e-cigs the same as...
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?
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?
Re: Biased reporting...
In other words you have nothing, apart from a rather bizarre and meaningless insult.
Why is there no comment on how much this is costing the taxpayer?
Toys go on the pavement.
Re: That reminds me
I tried to be reasonable. I told him I'd hire him back if he bought a car like a normal person.
That reminds me
...of the time I fired someone for riding a bike to work.
News just in: your childish hobby is not a protected class.
You sound rather defensive. Something to hide perhaps?
So you allow dopers to not only work for you, but lift things?
...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.
Speak for yourself. I'm shorting their shares right now.
This is all Apple's fault.
Re: Blah blah blah -@AC 14:24
None of us missed that bit. We just don't believe it.
Upvote for the Doc Smith reference, it's the 1st thing I thought of when I saw the headline. Incidentally, at the end of the series ('Children of the Lens' I think) Boskone tried forging the Lens, but got it slightly wrong...
/Coat because I should put mine on and get out more
Oh God Why
I love B7, but this... please, no.
That's my favourite colour for controls. Ideally they should be completely black and light up in black on a black background when you operate them.
So it's official
Apple are still failing. Can't wait for tomorrow to make the fanbois in the office eat it.
A South Park Reference...?
Just when I thought The Register could not get any more idiotic and immature, it pulls something new out of the bag.
Well done. How 'edgy'.
And how much taxpayers' money did that burn up?
'Religious believer in psychics, are we?'
No, just someone who is getting fed up with the Register's constant bashing of people's beliefs.
'...something neither of them saw coming'
Oh, pardon me while I split my sides laughing. That one never gets old.
What's next, El Reg, are you going to remind us that 'all religion is bunk', just so you can feel superior?
Apple should *still* be broken up and the money given back to the shareholders.
I already have. The 'privilege' of watching broadcast TV lost its appeal a long time ago.
Re: Pulling a fast one.
So, first he lied to try and get the bounty, then you say it doesn't matter whether or not he lied, because PayPal can change the rules any time they want?
Which one is it?
Just wait till $ky catch up with this...
No doubt in 2023 they will be proudly trumpeting their new 4TB Sky+ box... at a bargain price of £599.
So it's true...
Apple is finally going down the tubes. Yet I'll still be accused of scaremongering, or compared to Michael Dell. Whatever, keep drinking the Kool-Aid, it'll run out eventually.
Re: @unwarranted triumphalism
Well, if that's the standard of argument I can expect from the Palestinian lobby, I guess I'll just give up now.
Re: @unwarranted triumphalism
Yes, dead civilians are just a point of view I suppose.
Re: Getting the popcorn ready for the arrival of the shrill shills
I didn't know it was Google's place to recognise terrorists.
People with responsibilities, that's who. We don't all live in your hippie utopia.
I'd definitely like to see this productionised. Unlike some people who shall remain nameless, I think it will be in far less than 10 years.
Just think of it - electric cars with 1,000-mile ranges with small underfloor batteries.
And then the Vulture Central Oil Industry Defence Brigade will arrive - 'USELESS! The ONLY conceivable use for any vehicle requires 2,000 miles between recharges! This will NEVER be any good, scrap the whole idea NOW.'
The fossil fuel and nuclear lobbies have arranged for their paid shills to come here and share their wisdom. How else would I find out that solar energy is completely useless?
Re: Won't discuss the failure of the electric car for 2 years...?
No, I don't like MX-5s either. Why can't these people buy a normal car like everyone else?
Won't discuss the failure of the electric car for 2 years...?
No, we'll discuss it now. And if I see you in one of those things, I'll call the police - toys go on the pavement, not the road.
'Unmediated' data pulled from the sensor
What is that, exactly?
A lot of people here seem to be investing effort in 'proving' that renewables don't / can't work.
I wonder why that is.
Re: welcome to th 1990'2
Playing games - how childish and pointless.
How about 0%
Is that a more sensible figure...?
Re: Gays getting married isn't the issue in gay marriage...
'Co-opted'...? In the same way that Xmas was a Christian festival co-opted by pagans to celebrate the Winter Solstice, yes.
Re: Acceptable Bigotry
Very good, I've caught you in a lie and you come back with... that. Give yourself a pat on the back, Sparky.
