I was joking! I swear I tried to think of the most absurd thing I could think of!
I think I just lost all faith in humanity.
Re: I imagine...
We've got a good few years before legislation catches up with the technology.
Re: Biggest != Typical
"What's more, the discovery doesn’t seem to be a freak of nature. The team surveying black holes has found five other galaxies with similar characteristics"
"Eight months ago, the team discovered a black hole that could be as large as 30 billion solar masses (though that's unconfirmed)."
Source - The "Astronomers find biggest black hole, 17 BILLION times the size of Sun" Article.
And still no overhaul of the patent system.
This has gone past absurd.
What's next? A patent on the wheel?
Re: But its not black
It's ok. With a black hole that size you should get a great view of the singularity before you're spaghettified out of existence.
Relationships built on lies
I think that they are only happy sending people into space
If they can get them back home safely.
This from the founder of the company that created the Atari Lynx?
Quite possibly one of the best handheld gaming machines of all time.
Ok, ok. It wasn't as popular as the Gameboy, or the GameGear, but it was an excellent machine.
If you weren't lost or weren't having problems, then I'd say you were lying!
How does the fine print make it legal?
I didn't think I could enter a contract that requires me to give up my statutory rights.
How are they going to find dark matter underground?
With the defining characteristic of dark matter being that it's dark, and with the detector being underground, where it's also dark, How are they going to see anything?
Re: Ipad as generic name for tablet
That explains why when I asked for a Walkman one year I ended up with a crappy Alba portable audio cassette player instead.
Any topic can easily be turned into something totally unrelated.
Any chance of having this added as a comment icon?
What's happened here America? It seems like the RIAA and MPAA have managed to get their laws passed and enforced by their ISP cronies. And now they can sentence you to either reduced internet or no internet.
Judge, jury and executioner, all in one neat little package.
It doesn't look like the most efficient use of space.
For example, that bit bit in the middle that just appears to be trees and stuff. Who'll be working in that bit exactly?
It looks photoshopped.
A lot of the stars in that picture look awfully similar to each other!
"But customers need choice, they want to be able to try products that work alongside Apple."
There are non-apple products that work alongside Genuine Apple Products?
That question reads like legalese
"How confident are you that you know what is legal and what isn’t in terms of downloading, streaming/accessing and sharing content through the internet?"
Thanks to the IWF, all illegal content is already blocked. So internet users have nothing to fear.
Blue skies on Mars?
That's a new one!
Re: "whacking the bieber"
I think I've found a new euphemism!
Unfortunately, A politician will have to suffer before they take this kind of thing seriously.
Hopefully, more than one.
The Pedofinder General has found you guilty in the court of public opinion!
It's refreshing to see journalists finally showing a bit of common sense for once.
Re: What could go wrong ?- What would be the consequences?
That's because manager types will think that they are getting what they want, rather than what they ask for and then they will assume that everything will go according to plan and nothing will go wrong.
Shortly after this, reality kicks in. Everything goes arse over tit and everyone ends up with egg on their face.
Even on the XXL internet package
Iplayer and YouTube still buffer slowly and IPlayer is unwatchable at 720p or over.
Oh that's priceless!
Thousands of pounds spent on lawyers trying to do a cover up, only to be thwarted by the Wayback When machine!
It's the best theory we have so far
Unless you have any better ideas that fit with the experimental observations made?
Good. I hate adverts for things I don't want or need.
But I also hate adverts for things that I do need.
tl;dr? I don't like adverts, much less adverts that have been specifically targeted at me using my personal data.
Students are having sex?
Is this like the slowest news day ever?
When asked about Hilary Reynolds IT credentials, a department spokesman simply said...
Why is it traumatic?
You're buying condoms! That means you'll be having sex in the near future!
As soon as they do that
I'm getting myself fitted with Wi-Fi
Re: This is what science and technology should be doing.
It's *my* mouse, and I'll click it as fast as I like thankyouverymuch!
Re: Just let us pay directly to the producers
Why would they need to pay for distribution? You can already torrent TV shows that you might have forgotten to record over the internet.
Re: Marketed towards teenagers...
Don't tell him what an ephebophile is. You'll make his tiny brain explode.
We've got a robot hand grasping a mans penis here!
Could you be a little more discreet?
I'm sorry, but we don't have a code word for a robot hand grasping a mans penis.
This is what science and technology should be doing.
I can only imagine the difference that this arm makes to his quality of life.
I'm still looking forward to the day when I can get an extra third arm fitted so that I don't have to take my hands off the keyboard while I'm using a mouse.
I could see Microsoft making a bundle from this.
Rather than use their new technology patent to enforce content licensing, they could use it to make sure that there are people in front of the TV watching the adverts.
Of course, if I ever find myself living in such a dystopian future I'd probably never watch anything on TV ever again.
The courts obviously lack teeth.
Which is why Apple are playing silly buggers with them, They've obviously no respect for the court or the decision.
Re: Point in case.
She got off bloody lightly!
Someone with that level of disrespect for the law has no intention of ever driving safely!
