Re: A question
I think you'll find the slur used was 'Shrills'. Presumably people with higher voices are staunch supporters of Windows.
The thing had to warm up after three years in space. They always said they were expecting a response at between 5:30 and 6:30 gmt and it arrived at 6:15.
Frankly I'm blown away by this. Sod the bit about landing on a comet - if they can get a computer to wake up in a working state after three years in space then the rest is simple.
I know if I'd written it they would have been greeted by a prompt 'disk sda has not been checked for 900 days, do you wish to check now? y/n' and some poor yt ladwould have had to nip up with a ps2 keyboard.
Re: Lovely Movie
i don't think they have a full 60 fps video, what you see is what they have. the 55 second version just has longer pauses between frames
FA Cup 2013 - Surprise Result
Whilst watching the Community Shield highlights last night I couldn't for the life of me remember who Wigan beat in the FA Cup, so I turned to Google but now I can't work out which Manchester-based Ministry Of Truth might be resonsible for this ...
History shall record.
I am unable to form an opinion on this. I shall await Eadon's sage wisdom
I'm not really sure who McKinsey Associates are but according to my own studies a proper digital economy would add a billion squillion bazillion europounds. Very worrying
I just don't get it
" compared to an $85.3m loss in Q1 2012, on revenues of $263.6m"
How does a software company (I'm being generous here) spend 350m in a quarter?
Re: Geek Win (sort of)
My 13 year old son came home from school one day earlier this year and early told me that the school had rolled out win 8 and that it was sick. From the mouths of babes ...
10?! Did you slip in to Base2 for that comment?
Re: "less airtime than Google or Apple"
What a useful and well-thought out comment. Thank you for taking the time to share with us your incredible foresight and business acumen.
One of the problems is that browser apps are just not written optimally enough for current systems
There, fixed it for you
I can only imagine the detritus that would fall out all over my lap after using this thing as a laptop for a month and then folding it keyboard-down on my lap. I'm in the seventh circle now.
I suppose I must be much shinier than you! ;-)
I was in Currys the other day looking at ovens, and the missus wandered over to the computers on the way out. She saw the ultrabooks and went "ooooh", and then she looked to the left and saw the iPads and walked over there instead. There are two markets here: shiny things and things for actually doing work. Black and Decker still seem to be doing alright out of selling screwdrivers and hammers.
Re: Check it doesn't
Does it count if it just has the one rounded corner?
Re: "and also access to the computer's webcam"
Oh no, you've misunderstood. A webcam would allow _you_ to wave your genitals in other people's faces. This may or may not change your opinion but pointless pedantry always cheers me up
Re: What about my 3 year old?
But it is still very funny. And now that I know it annoys people it shall be even more so!
No no, it's not that they want to "go" either way, they want to offer a 7 _and_ 10 inch option.

wtf is facebook?
$300m for a large chunk of a growing firm with real products making real money is ridiculous, you could buy a third of a freebie photo app for that - far more trendy
Re: That is opera sync
It's opera _link_ these days fella
as an owner of an imported (and rooted (many times)) kindle fire I am extremely happy with it - I can browse t'interwebs, read emails, and play crappy freebie android apps, and that is _all_ I got it for. however i'm not sure that it will ever be a "killer" tablet for mort without bluetooth, camera, mic, etc.
suspect amazon have worked this out and blighty will not see the fire until the next gen model is ready, and sellable under £200.
" It seems that somebody at Mozilla has looked at Google's method of version numbering and decided to copy it in the ridiculous belief that the version numbering must be the reason Chrome is surging ahead"
This would indeed be a ridiculous belief, and as such is probably not the case.
Strange how some people claiming that version numbers are insignificant get so upset about them. And if you're upset about features changing on you, such as add-on management, then disable those updates - it's your choice. Lovely.
Mine's the one with the Opera browser embedded in the collar.
