Too much television.

Ok Jake, if you say so...

Re: And you thought Google Glass made you look dumb...
No, you can't. Get back in your Blogosphere, stinking hipster.
Clearly 'research' for the next terrible Tom Clancy-esque Hollywood adaptation, staring Channing Tatum as the expert covert ops sniper who is betrayed by his superiors into 'accidentally' (via the researched 'hack' of all things) assassinating the President of Africanistan (who actually turns out to have been a Russian plant who was trying to develop biological weapons with North Korean money) while the POTUS was visiting on a ground breaking trip to broker a weapons non-proliferation pact.
Mr Tatum will thusly pacify many many Africanistans and COMMIES in his hunt for justice, whereby the end scene will be Mr Tatum using an old fashioned Lee-Enfield to take out a fancy TrackingPoint Kit rifle owning sniper from 900 yards and protect the POTUS.
Then he will kill the evil 2nd in command of Africanistan (it was a double double cross!) with his Colt 45 and fly an AC130 away while the President acts as gunner, shooting the living shit out of many many technicals and freeing the people of Africanistan to live in Democracy (Woo!) and Freedom (Fuck yeah!) and do jobs for Huge US Conglomerates (USA! USA! USA!)
Box office gold, mate.
Re: Unfortunate timing
This is an entirely different police force in an entirely different country - or are you going to accuse the English of shooting unarmed black Americans on a weekly basis too?

Re: Good on him
There is no evidence of any possibility of a violent confrontation from the report. The lack of violence can not be attributed to the presence of a hand gun. There is nothing to suggest that either party intended to be violent, bar the declaration that should the home owner's property boundary be breached would lead to the further discharge of a firearm.
Re: He should go free...
But when it comes to keeping illegals out of a tunnel you suddenly aren't so keen to chase anything, eh Jacques?
So this malware is totally dependent on access to Twitter? Just as well, it might cause harm to real people otherwise!
Re: Go for it Beeb!
It's not often you get redundant double Ds, but as this example shows the Beeb isn't afraid to make a tit of itself.

Re: the 640k quote
Come on Jake, tell us the story about that time you and Bill were kayaking on Mars and you told him that his first suggestion of 320kb wasn't enough and that he should double it...

You're wrong, on two counts:
1. She isn't pretty.
2. Cleavage not deep enough.

Re: Now more people will get to feel the pain
I have found they have been the BEST product supporters in tech. Aftersales have been fantastic, providing replacement mouse feet free of charge and shipped at their cost. I also had a G5 mouse replaced with a newer model when they couldn't provide said feet any more. Their quality control is generally excellent as well.
Clearly the punishment does not fit the crime. Who fancies a lynch mob?
Re: "[...] his methods for making the Kessel run in 12 parsecs."
I can sense a great disturbance in the Force... A Disney executive has just decided that the Kessel Run will be a race... A teenage Han Solo will be piloting the Falcon... for a Hutt crime lord... against a variety of aliens in similar vessels...
I am seeing... an annoying sidekick who constantly frustrates Chewbacca....

Has anyone checked that games work yet? I genuinely don't care if the menu us fucked but if my steam catalogue is rendered useless then I am not going near it.
Re: Much fuss over nothing?
Umm, so your mugger is attempting a mugging empty-handed in order to try to steal a weapon from a victim who is OPENLY carrying a gun, while he is actually legally allows to carry a firearm and could therefore have one to use anyway, to then steal the gun to use in a mugging against someone else who may or may not be openly carrying? I know criminals are stupid, but this must be a Floridian mugger.
Re: Ever since I was little,
I don't understand why kids tv is even made any more. With the attention span and memory of children, with their whimsical attitude and relatively simple minds willing to grasp onto any catchphrase, pretty pattern or gibberish spluttering bipedal character going, added to 40 year's worth of back catalogue, there shouldn't be a need to introduce NEW stories or NEW characters.
Just re-run everything from the 70s and 80s and that's it sorted. The kids aren't going to critique the show, or wonder why Bagpuss moves in such a stop-motion effect. Bloody Philistines, the lot of 'em.
Re: Re. This sort of disingenuity is why a lot of us don't trust Microsoft.
Don't worry, Jake will be along in a minute to tell you which ones he owns and thus trusts implicitly.

Greece trying to make money any way it can!
Wrong. You keep the signs in place and plant a minefield underneath it.
If the law stats that acting as a taxi is illegal, those caught doing it should have said car crushed.
Whether the law is even realistic or appropriate (I don't think it is, protectionism like this is basically a Government approved cartel) is another matter entirely, but to fail to enforce it is just lame.
They should be letting illegals into 'sting' lorries at Calais and then driving them back to the Mediterranean as well, but apparently they have 'rights' which trump ours.

Re: One big problem
Once a year? Is that not rare enough? I mean, if you eat roast beef eleven times in your life, one would hardly say that person constantly eats roast beef. No, it would be a rare, nay, freak occurrence.

Well it seems they are still flogging Gamebryo within a nanometre of its placental integrity. Bethesda should change their motto to "Why Try Harder?".
But Gamebryo is an abomination and always appears to have been born 8 months prematurely.
Umm the number of horizontal lines and the number of vertical pixels are the same thing? There are 1080 horizontal lines of pixels in a 1920x1080 display, ergo there are 1080 pixels in a single vertical plane of alignment with one another...
I presume you mean the number of HORIZONTAL pixels in each horizontal line?
The 4K misnomer was just some shitty rounding of 3840 to the nearest thousand which, yes, was horizontal pixel count bollocks.

I have 5 of the buggers on my wiring, and I recommend them to everyone I meet. There is nothing as satisfying as a technology that works invisibly and on existing infrastructure - and interfering with another is the icing on the cake!

If you can afford £10k on an Apple Watch, you can afford multiple Rolexs (and will buy them) as well. Rolex have NOTHING to worry about.
