Bacon and tomato sauce surely!
All Qwerty keyboards are practically the same. Mostly from the necessity of having all the keys in a place where a touch typists fingers know where to find them.
Machines may be better placed to discover chunks of data that the scientists weren't expecting or even looking for.
Then how am I supposed to check to see if any of my websites are on it?
Great idea :) That should solve the problem once and for all!
Upvote for the Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines reference. :)
Why wasn't this the subheading?
Someone's developing an AI that drinks coffee and post comments on El Reg all day instead of writing code?
Who would do something like that?
It's only a matter of time...
It's just easier to download shows off the internet and watch them at your convenience. Or indeed, in your convenience.
...ok ok! I'm going!
District Judge Richard Seeborg might want to rethink that decision!
I wouldn't put it past him though. I'm going to start checking app permissions a little bit more carefully now.
You're breaking my heart.
I totally agree. HAL wasn't evil, just misguided.
It'll do no good for Albert Ransom, but I do take a little bit of delight in seeing someone get their comeuppance.
But you still needed a separate boot disk if you wanted to play video games. Unless you were some kind of batch file wizard.
Margaret Hodge is a little late to the party isn't she? Or is passing bad laws only something she takes an interest in when it directly embarrasses her?
Let me fire up a 56K modem, connect to Compuserve, and download a movie that will crap out at 76%.
That takes me back!

Try a single blade Bic. I find that the multi-blade razors tend to accumulate hair between the blades, reducing efficiency. Which probably explains why they work better when you rub it backwards down your leg.
Ronald Hall owes me a new keyboard.
I like Google Glass as much as the next bloke. It's a great way of accessing small amounts of data in an unobtrusive manner.
BUT! If Larry Page came into my bathroom and started filming me in the shower and tweeting the video all over facebook, I'd say "OI! PAGE! NO!" Being the CEO of a multi-million dollar company does not give you the right to come into my bathroom and start filming me in the shower!
(apologies to Harry Enfield.)
I've still not forgiven them for ruining Dungeon Keeper.
That monkey could have racked up 1,000's of dollars worth of purchases on Candy Crush!
...Into the Sun.
How else am I supposed to use South Park clips to educate people?
I too was wondering what GitHub's patrons have against tasty pork dishes in gravy.
Because the sudden appearance of a 437ft CyberDemon is likely to cause mass panic.
Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.
I'm surprised that she's not retreated to her evil lair inside a hollowed out volcano.
Why? Is my privacy worth less?
and it gets mined, do I get a share of the profits?
Say what you like about those old games, but they knew how to put together a proper boxed copy back in those days.
It wasn't just a bunch of disks and a manual. You got that and so much more that made the game seem so real that for a few hours you'd really feel like some kind of adventurer (or an intergalactic hitchhiker).
Yes. I want sharks with frickin phasers!
It's about time they took a stand for Canadian Strange!
That's a reality TV show I'd watch.
That'll teach me to read the frigging article!
What Sprint should do is charge the NSA even more for their services, and then pass that money back to consumers in the form of cheap/free calls.
Everybody wins. Sprint make loads of money and get customers. Sprint customers get a subsidised service. The NSA get people to spy on. What's not to like?
Windows XP is one of those items that I categorise with the Model T Ford, rotary dial Bakelite phones, 56K modem handshaking noises, and radios that needed the valves to warm up before you could listen to anything.,
Then I can encrypt the bytes out of everything!
All the EBA will do is wring their hands and ask us very nicely not to launder money again.
That's as good a reason as any to boycott it.
