I've just gone back to playing this after the Simcity 5 debacle.
It's an interesting input device
Can you use it to detect a users expression of horror when they realise they've made a cataclysmic mistake?
I can see an application here for an automated undo feature :)
Re: These were great
Downvoting me after losing my copy of Ant Attack is just adding insult to injury!
Re: These were great
Except that if you forgot and left a cartridge in the drive when you powered the damn thing on, it would wipe the tape.
I want one!
Preferably equipped with an on board set of tools like Johnny 5 had.
Well if the chips respond to damaging stimuli by repairing themselves, then I guess that zapping the chip with a laser would make it feel pain that it had to respond to by rerouting its circuits.
Holy Crap! They are torturing those chips!
That the first application for these chips will be in robots to fight frickin' sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their frickin' heads.
Re: no man is an island
Isn't it about time that roaming charges were seen for the rip off that they are?
There is practically no real extra cost phoning home from Dover or Calais for the network operators, so why do we allow them to keep fleecing customers like this?
Learn COBOL, even if it cripples you mentally
I still have flashbacks about writing sequential files to tape.
Sometimes, late at night, I can still hear the tape flapping, and the anguished screams of someone that's just dropped a box of punch cards.
Re: There is only one thing a text editor needs
I once offered a fiver to anyone that could write a COBOL program in vi without setting off the terminal bell.
No one ever claimed it.
I have lost the ultra-violet wiping-out gadget (ask your dad)
Am I so old now that this is ancient technology?
Re: If it slips from your grasp and twangs back in mid-pee
Please tell me this has actually happened! :)
Re: Lastpass for me
My brain currently fills all those functions.
Barring accident, injury or alcohol, it seems to work quite well.
Oh! And it's free!
Re: If (when?) they're banned
Someone get me a mini-cam, a tube of tennis balls balls, some hair spray and a lighter.
There goes my weekend....
Re: Counting security holes is not a good guide - windows has HUGE HOLES
Gotta love linux users that think their boxes are unhackable :)
Re: They will use any lie in the book to get you to buy.
Advertisers lie?!! Say it isn't so!
Looks like a perfect phone for kids
And wont cost too much to replace if it's lost, stolen or broken.
Maybe a friendly prirate has come up with a "Fix" for it.
I own plenty of legitimate games.
But sometimes a 3rd party software update is the only way to get the software working properly.
Telephone and face-to-face support would be offered only as a "fall-back mechanism"
I've read that bit five times now, and it just seems like a big screw you to people that don't or can't use computers.
What guarantee have I got that I'll actually be able to speak to someone that can help in a timely manner?
Re: Can we have some bears too?
Lions, Tigers and Bears!
Re: Can't ISPs detect zombified PCs?
Ok, do you want to volunteer to have your traffic profiled first?
It's not white for a start.
Overclockers are rubbing their hands with glee
I'd worry about frost build up on the processor though.
The sky is falling! The sky is falling!
Run for the hills Cory Bernardi! We're all doomed!
Re: My last excuse...
Your phone is there for your convenience, not other peoples.
How do you model one system onto another completely incompatible one?
I don't know. I'll have a go at figuring it out after I've taken this pen and paper business process and automated it on my PC.
Electric shocks when hit by a plasma bolt
Finally! A way to electrocute people over TCP/IP!
First C Compiler
Or, the great grandmother of all compiler errors.
I can use = instead of == in an expression and that's valid?
Re: I wonder how they tested the "will not work with a severed hand" part.
Re: IT BEGINS!
Let's hope that it doesn't have a solid core of naqahdah...
How could anyone have granted those patents?
Which can be paraphrased as "What the internet already does."
The UK Civil Service has a code governing honesty?
I wonder what it says?
And what exactly have you done to try and make the world a better place today?
Mesons play for both sides in polarity switch shocker!
So where's the sexy footage of mesons oscillating?
Technically he's right.
But you can produce as much CO2 if not more, by sitting around talking bullshit all day long.
And lets face it, there's a lot more of that going on than cycling.
Re: how much use would you or I get from that?
Probably about the same amount of use as the Apollo program. In other words... A lot.
Re: Just get a Raspberry Pi
And just how am I ^H^H^H^H is a hacker supposed to convince someone to hook up their iDevice to a raspberry pi to steal their credit card info?
I wonder if you can hack the cable...
Maybe get that little ARM chip to do something useful.
Re: Three digital watches...
But do any of them display the right time?
Re: It's never embarrassing to fix a problem.
We all make mistakes. It's embarrassing not to learn from them. There's nothing embarrassing about fixing them.
Re: Security isn't a dirty word
Darling: So you see, Blackadder, Field Marshal Haig is most anxious to eliminate all these German spies.
Melchett: Filthy Hun weasels fighting their dirty underhand war!
Darling: And, fortunately, one of *our* spies--
Melchett: Splendid fellows, brave heroes, risking life and limb for Blighty!
Have they named it yet?
Why not Zoidberg?
Yeah, you're going to need to replace all that with Rat 5.
Re: ""Rats don't have a sense of self"
Are they sure that rats don't have a sense of self?
My rats apparently seem to have a sense of self. Which I can demonstrate with two rats, a mirror and a banana chip.
Blighty telcos ordered to play whack-a-mole again.
This should solve the problem once and for all.
But what does it taste like?
As if there is any other kind!
Re: Everything is now Square.
Of course everything is now square. It's the only geometric shape that's still in the public domain.
