Good question. You'd need at least two dimensions for form the queue.
I sincerely hope not. Forums will be choked with reams of pointless wittering on whether it's licor-ISH or licor-ISS.
The former is clearly correct and anyone who says otherwise is a moron. [See! It's happening already!!]
He's going slowly bonkers, isn't he. Howard Hughs meets tramp-on-a-park-bench.
Hordes (herds?) of reindeer-mounted Finnish cavalry pounding down Infinite Loop, led by a red-coated general with a white beard.
Who's ho-ho-ho-ing now, Apple?
Thanks for taking the time to write that. Jolly interesting.
Re: Bermuda Onions on Pizza?
Colonial spelling mistake, like 'color'.
Beardie Branson backs Blockchain's Bitcoin bandwagon
Absolutely awesome and amazing alliteration, as always.
Time to don the old Tin Foil Chapeau

Re: Chump change?
"Still helps them make a loss in Europe (excluding Ireland), so less tax to pay. So a win for Google."
So you'd rather be paid £10k a year and avoid income tax than be taxed on £40k a year? It's a thought, I suppose...

Re: The Good Wife
To my (and my good wife's) irritation, the latest season and subsequent seasons will only be available on Amazon Prime. They bought exclusive rights for a mind-boggling amount of money.
Commiserations. Still, at least you can supplement your cheese with a smoke and a pancake.
Of course! Generally good eggs, Canadians (apart from the wretched Québécois, obviously).
I'd like to nominate "a small problem with some minor exploding" for the British Understatement in Journalism Award.
That's a metric fuckton (fapton?) of porn.
You bend over suddenly (for whatever reason you might like to imagine) and that's going to sting. I know manufacturers are wary of rounded corners, but that's like a telephonic shuriken!
...by the absence of audiophile twattery on this thread.
I'd expected someone to show up wittering on about valves and/or directional CAT 5 cables by now. Only one mention of the often-ubiquitous "warmer", and nothing on "mid-tones" at all.
Re: Looking on the bright side...
Oh good, more charity shops paying no business rates and selling tat. Just what my high-street needs.
If you're spending 100k+ on a TV, you're not in the real world
Meh. I like to look at the Bugattis and Ferraris at a car show. Doesn't mean I'm going to buy one.

Immigrant Bosons On Benefits Cause Cancer And Falling House Prices
He does love 'developers'
Really? Have you, by any chance, got any evidence of that fact...
Re: Apple school of marketing?
You have 20 seconds to comply ... I am now authorised to use extreme suction.
A couple more generations and I won't need a laptop AND a carving knife.
Convergence, eh! Amazing. I just wish they'd add a bottle opener and corkscrew.
Re: It really doesn't matter
+1 for the last sentence, although I'd add "arrogant and self-important".
That 'impressive' picture of the spiders 'getting together' is like something from Indiana Jones.
I no longer have my feet on the floor. The picture is me in my spider-proof suit --->
Re: Hardness of aluminium
Yes they are. Virtually all aluminium is alloyed before use. Apart from its density, it's not a very useful construction material otherwise. [Edit: darn, beaten to it!]
"should certainly bolster sales in time for the new school term"
Really? A MacBook pro to help little Philippa/Tarquin pass their GCSEs?
My, my, how times have changed. I was happy with a Casio fx82 [goes all misty-eyed]. Kids today, don't know they're born, etc, etc...
A spy lies. More at eleven. --->
Re: Mork Calling Orson
Also, horoscopes don't work, and you can walk under ladders as long as you keep half an eye on the window cleaner's bucket.
Re: Whither Nexus 8
You appear to be living the same life as me.
Where indeed is the next iteration of the Nexus 7/8? Fed up with charging my Mk1 every night.
Why no, I don't.
I fail to see why anyone reading an IT site would have any knowledge of an intensely irritating app which was omnipresent on the Windows desktop for the best part of decade.
[It looks like you're having a bad day. Would you like help?]
Anyone stupid enough to invest in King should get out right now. One game and a valuation of $7bn - what could possibly go wrong...
No but if you stress-test it, it has a crisis.
Re: Stealth Baloon
Must have the radar cross-section of a pigeon. Doubt any of them even knew it was there.
Re: 80 bhp?
Someone needs to look up the term "low ratio" ...
Re: I for one
Small hands, huh? Poor Mrs 10.
I love my Galaxy Note. Fits my hand perfectly :)
Re: If I had a semi-transaprent display
My brain had a little wobble when I read: "If I had a semi".
I need to get out more :(
To be fair, most people who can count to 20 without taking off their socks would consider it growth.
Re: Ericsson has the patents on this one.
So I stick the same thing in a golf bag or a sousaphone case and it's $$$$ and a private carribean island?
<Mr Burns>Excellent!</Mr Burns>
Troll 'cos, you know, patents.
Re: Define "drone"
What, may I ask, is wrong with "robocopter" and "robojet"? Is this or is this not the 21st Century? Hmm?
When I were a lad we had to make do with scratching ones and zeros on the wall. We upgraded from a 16k wall to a 32k wall by moving to a larger house. Deleting old files took ages as we had to wait for the plaster to dry before we could write new ones.
Kids today don't know they're born, etc.
Re: SBS shows far more sex than the more timid commercial broadcasters
Hedges. They're everywhere, and for some reason often they often sport a two-year-old, damp copy of Razzle.
[Yeah, I know it's not true anymore. But leave me with my rose-tinted spectacles for a while, will you.]
20m max altitude?
If that video is meant to be from the quadcopter in question, then I call bullsh1t. Some of those shots are from waaaaay higher than that - 100m plus to my eyes.
EDIT: the dome is 91m tall. Nuff sed.
Re: With apologies to Ray Parker, Jr.
That's deep in the uncanny valley of humour.
So bad it's not funny, but not quite bad enough to be funny for the badness itself.
After all, what could possibly go wrong -->
Good name for Apple to acquire
After all, your average fanboi Beats furiously over every new iThing...
Re: "My heart would be a fireball...!"
Er. That's quite uncanny. Good spot, that man.
This is a plot by a joint NSA/GCHQ task force to move people onto less secure solutions with nice backdoors.
That's why I only use paper to encrypt my sensitive data using a one-time pad which I hide in a pet's body cavity.
