Colonial spelling mistake, like 'color'.
Absolutely awesome and amazing alliteration, as always.
"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
"That's lucky, there's now a really, really cheap sapphire glass company for us to buy." - Tim Cook, Oct 2014
[not really, but you never know...]
"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.
Oh good, more charity shops paying no business rates and selling tat. Just what my high-street needs.
Meh. I like to look at the Bugattis and Ferraris at a car show. Doesn't mean I'm going to buy one.

Really? Have you, by any chance, got any evidence of that fact...
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.
+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 --->
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!]
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. --->
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.
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.
Must have the radar cross-section of a pigeon. Doubt any of them even knew it was there.
Someone needs to look up the term "low ratio" ...
Small hands, huh? Poor Mrs 10.
I love my Galaxy Note. Fits my hand perfectly :)
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.
So I stick the same thing in a golf bag or a sousaphone case and it's $$$$ and a private carribean island?

Troll 'cos, you know, patents.
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.
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.]
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.
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 -->
After all, your average fanboi Beats furiously over every new iThing...
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.
The big problems arrive at Peak Trough (or is that Trough Peak?).
It's nice to know I'm not alone in thinking that. "Memory stick" is a much better and more descriptive name.
Nope, you could take a bath in pH 2 acid and be ok (rubbing in the eyes not recommended).
For example, lemons and vinegar are about that acidic, and my chips never seem to end up as a pool of sludge...
Well, the maths bit, anyway.
Taking an average pee as about a pint (the approx frequency of toilet visits is once per pint, following the breaking of the seal), which we approximate as 0.5 litres.
Taking the volume of drinking water as 38,000,000 US Gallons (as the volume was reported by a Merkin agency), this equates to 143,850,000 litres.
Dividing one by the other gives us 0.0035 parts per million, or just over 3 parts per billion. Now, I suspect that 3 parts per billion of anthrax spores would actually be safe to drink, so emptying the whole lot seems a smidgeon OTT.
You need to think about where you'd look last, then look there first. It'll save you hours of frustration.
I can't see much wrong with making money from gullible idiots.
Also, he could sell it to concerned hill-walkers and antenna engineers. It would surely redirect any lightning strike around the sensitive area and therefore stop your testicles behaving like two eggs in a microwave.
