You're circumnavigating the world .... wide web!
Re: @ Dazed and Confused
> Have a downvote, because "Their just phones FFS" bothers me too much
Unterminated quotes bother me too much!
Also it's a numbers game.
The amount of startups created is huge in the US. And loads fail, but obviously some don't. But people aren't afraid to have a go.
I like mine with gravy
May I suggest 'TCFKARIM'
as the reg's new name for RIM.
Is the only difference between the models the storage amount?
Apple really charge $200 for 48Gb of flash? Even worse if you go for the 32Gb model: $100 for an extra 16Gb!
Re: If you are not on the ball, you will Perish..
Coming up next on Apple: iSitcom! A bunch of hillllllarious 20 somethings sit around in their iApartment and discuss how great Apple products are.

Yeah the language or platform doesn't matter - I can write C in any language
Re: No disrespect ...
Well not every news site can have their finger on the pulse quite like the BBC's expert technical journalists (Eg Rory Cellan-Jones)
oooh is that good apple
Good for them.
A lot of people have no interest in playing the coffee-wanker game.
At work the other day, some chap came in for a meeting with us and we got some coffees from the refectory. It "proudly servers" Starbucks' coffee. After a while he noticed the starbucks logo on the cup and said "Ah it's Starbucks'. I thought it was good !". I had to stop myself laughing.
Now I don't claim to know anything about coffee, but to me Starbucks is the McDonald's of coffee. Mass-masket shit for plebians. No one serious about food goes to McDonald's. Does anyone serious about coffee go to Starbucks? Even the name sounds tacky. I feel dirty if I go in such a place.
They wouldn't even know what an ounce is.
Re: Have to say it...
Who wants to come to my Windows 8 launch party?
It'll be fun.
Hmm I'm struggling to find a good angle to
start an Apple vs Android discussion.
Yeah it's no big deal
The towns are holding the ground wrong
It was just his way of expressing his
dissatisfaction with the new metro interface, the office ribbon, and the death of clippy.

Re: Hmm, should this have ever gone to court?
Maybe he was playing the numbers game with all the teenagers, and the texts to parents/family/male friends were his alibi
Yeah I can't wait for 3d mapping, it will be so useful to find locations when I'm flying in my hovercar.

I was thinking of writing a tool
for writing common non-UI code with a series of elegant C pre-processor macros. I'd write code in the macro language, and then I'd have a different set of macro definitions for each target language. It would have been AMAZING.
Re: Can anyone....
install rockbox on the ipod
And the $99 dev account, otherwise you're just stuck
with the emulator, unless you jailbreak the phone.
Re: OK I'll feed the troll
May I recommend the documentary Status Anxiety. You'll love it.
Small clip here. Skip forward a minute or 2. These 2 Crass members are two of the sanest people I've ever heard.
Re: Dentopedology of the keyboard...
What's that, the study of childrens' teeth?
Brooker already used this pun i'm afraid
Fictional exchange which may occur
Pre iphone 5:
Droidman: Look at my big S3/Onex/etc ...ooh look at the big screen
Fanboi: Urgg it's too big, I don't need a phone that big
Post iphone 5 release (assuming it's going to be bigger):
Fanboi: Ooh wow the screen is so big, just what I needed !

A new generation of microwave ovens. 0 to Tasty in 0.01 seconds.
Surely they have the concept of a priority device,
that gets preferential treatment by base stations, that these GPS devices could have used?
Re: Social media?
Also a Facebook plugin to allow you to share the fact that you now have chlamydia with certain other users.

Why the hell doesn't the SMS protocol
support some ability for the user to accept or reject a premium-rate SMS when each arrives at the phone, with a warning on the cost.
> It stops reading e-books being the strain on the eyes viewing iBooks on the iPad and iPad 2 was.
This sentence troubled me greatly. I think the "It stops the reading of ebooks being..." or even "It stops e-book reading being..." would be better.
Ha, I get 2mb in Tooting/Earlsfield, SW london
That's all O2 said they can do, because I think it's Wimbledon exchange our line is one, but that must be a good mile and a half away at least.
