A free speaker worth £199
Having seen (and heard it), I can promise you that it 'costs' £199, but it is far, far, faaaaar from 'worth' it.
My icon has only marginally worse sound reproduction qualities.
Re: Finally a use for Zoolander.
I'll see your Zoolander and raise you a Highlander 3. Never has a franchise gone downhill so far, so quickly....
S'a larf, innit.
And I think that's the beginning and the end of the explanation.
Re: This one's my favourite
That's wonderful. Not difficult to guess which one of them is telling porkies.
Re: Good Grief
Maybe, but are you really using the same password to shout "Apple is better than Android" (or vice-versa) as to access PayPal?
If so, you're a moron, and it would be pretty pathetic to blame El Reg when some villain pays for a truckload of ebay tat using your credentials.
Not that is a Bobby Bonanza price. I'd like a Tab S or a Nexus 9, but for £150 less, this is a clear winner.
Now to see if the missus is up for buying me my Christmas present early...
Re: Do you have to...
It would certainly put you on the right career track without derailing your other options.
Re: Yep, that will work...
Fun to be had for a tech-savvy crim (or terrorist) by inverting the fire/no-fire rules. Imagine the hilarity when every police officer and SWAT team member finds their weapons disabled while the bad guys can spray bullets with impunity.
WTF, America? WTF?
Only until we fire up the (Mr) fusion plants.
Thanks, it's the one with 88mph written on the back.
Re: TAX DODGER!....excuse me...TAX EXILE!
WTF? Did the vacuum cleaner pack up just as you were in the vinegar strokes?
Nest and Hive
I'm still unsure why it's such a boon to be able to control my heating from my phone when I'm in the pub. Maybe I'm just too old to understand - after all, I thought Twitter would sink without trace when it first came to my attention...
How much for seal.club?
Re: FUCKIN LONDON AGAIN!
I've always found I get better mobile data services anywhere but London, especially when in Zone 1. Just too many devices soaking up limited bandwidth.
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
"My god, this sapphire glass is expensive, these guys have a monopoly! As you all know, the only good monopoly is an Apple monopoly." - Tim Cook, September 2014

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: signed-up for free trial in France - still feel it is bad value for money
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.
Re: In other news
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 :(
