Damn you muscle memory!
I can see my thumbs being all over the place on this device. How is it for accuracy?
With the exception of a few flight sims, I've never been able to find anything more accurate for shooting stuff than WSAD and a mouse.
I wonder how much NSA spooks get paid to sit on twitter all day...?
Well if I'm going to waste time browsing social media all day, it would be nice to get paid for it!
I'm surprised that the Republicans are doing this in public
They are holding america to ransom, and the worst thing is that they don't even seem to see that it reflects badly on them.
Media-friendly Spacewalk for the 2014's winter Olympic Games
I don't think this will erase the stain of Russias gay bashing.
Find it hard to choose something to watch?
Then you're probably done watching and it's time to turn off your PC and go and do something a little more interesting.
Re: What about the right of American employers to avoid hiring drug users?
Isn't it Unamerican to repress the freedom of other people? What people do on their own time is none of an employers business.
They are going to be all over this.
Re: Too ambitious
You'd need something like a chameleon circuit for that.
Re: biggest ever TV surely ?
If you got bronzed just for that post, then I support our moderating overlords wisdom wholeheartedly.
You want a secure operating system?
You have to write it yourself nowadays it seems.
"trying to encourage a sheep to perform a sexual act on you"
How would you...? I don't even...
Often, the solution offered is that we should therefore tax capital more
We don't need to tax capital. What we need to do is raise the tax entry level above the minimum wage.
Seriously, what's the point in spending all that bureaucratic overhead on paying people a wage they can't live on and then taking tax off them only to give some of it back to them in the form of tax credits?
For an extra 5 billion, I could fuck it up in ways that no one has ever thought of before.
Re: Er . . .put the civil servant buyers on a bonus system
You've not seen Yes Minister have you?
I'd be willing to bet another £10 billion
That there are a lot of people that have made a lot of money out of this failure.
Re: She's a bigger act than you think...
I wonder how she got the job?
Small children are always in a hurry
That's because when you're 5, everything is awesome! You'd be in a hurry too if the entire world was full of really cool stuff you'd never seen before.
Re: Why the hell is ActiveX even allowed
HTML 5 is the future.
I'm guessing that this was totally legal too
Given GCHQ's definition of legal.
We will still have to work in the future?
How crap is that?
It's Dean Vernon!
So basically, Pig Latin for the French?
Re: Just don't try this at home....
I've heard that you can get "warming" lubricants that have a dash of capsaicin in them...
So I've heard anyway...
Re: Help me Obi Cam Kanobi you're my only hope
If they can erect a massive firewall to protect us from porn...
...Then why can't they construct one to keep out spammers and malware writers?
That patent is so vague!
Patent 5,959,633 sounds like half the stuff I build!
Sir Bob Geldof to go into space
Any word on if he's coming back again?
Re: I could see banning offensive words,
Why is Jaffa Cake offensive?!?
Did the Goa'uld put in a complaint?
Yet more words that are kept secret from us and would cause a search on Bing to get flagged up.
Those are our words! (probably, I don't know what they are) Just because some elements of the criminal underworld have co-opted them doesn't make everyone that uses them a criminal.
How much heat are these chips putting out? I'm thinking that this manufacturing process packs transistors denser, which would translate to the same amount of heat being generated in a smaller space.
Human life is already cheap.
Don't believe me? You can get a longer sentence for theft or destruction of property than for murder.
"any other form of electronic marketing message"
Here's hoping that includes automated dialers.
Tesla would be proud!
Wireless energy transmission, yeah, he thought of that.
This looks like an ok solution for large objects
But what about all those nut and bolt sized chunks of metal whizzing around?
I'd have thought it would be easier to dodge a large object coming your way than it would be to avoid a shotgun pellet like smattering of metal.
No! She went of her own accord!
Re: Testing! Or as I call it, "The other half of the job" @Crisp
Everyone cocks something up at some point or another. Even me.
Testing! Or as I call it, "The other half of the job"
Test, then test, and test some more.
Test it isolation.
Test it from end to end.
Test it with loads of data.
Test it with no data.
Test it with wrong data.
Sorry for getting testy, but why bother writing code if you're not going to make sure it works?
ENIAC was the size of a house.
It was a massive machine that you had to book time on. It was a specialised piece of equipment that cost a fortune and wasn't practical for everyone to own. As time went on and techniques were refined and new technology became available you could eventually fit ENIAC's function into something the size of a wrist watch.
This almost looks like history repeating itself. Give it a few more years and we'll be able to get a quantum processor on a PCI card.
Just who does that headmaster think he is?
I'm surprised he didn't get done for wasting police time.
Wow! What a logo!
I'm going to start using their search engine this very second!
Search results? Why would I be interested in how well the thing actually works?
"As much as we know that anything's dead, this looks dead"
Then leave it alone!
Never poke or make fun of dead things. People that do that are usually the first to die in horror movies.
All of this makes me wonder
How many people have been wrongly convicted of tampering?
After all, who's going to take the word of a criminal over that of "expert evidence"?
Re: opposite of Hooray
Dammit Adrian! I'm a Coder not a Baker!
Great article though :)
Re: Horseless carriages
"You would make a ship sail against the winds and currents by lighting a bonfire under her deck...I have no time for such nonsense." -- Napoleon
A flustered Commons spokeswoman insisted...
Damn! If she backpedals any faster she's going to start travelling through time!
In a shocking twist of events
The Digital Playground 2005 film Pirates is still surprisingly watchable.
Ah! Risky Sex!
Trouble is, when seeking the thrill of being caught; there's always the possibility of being caught.
The BPI declined to comment
That in itself speaks volumes.
They'll quite happily engage in secret talks with service providers, yet wont talk to the press about their schemes to keep us all on a piracy database.
