Must work harder
Several easily cheaper devices available already as has already been suggested and as many people carry tablets to meetings its going to be a bit of a gimmick given I could access a tablet whilst actually on the road but not this device which requires extra hardware.
Now if they integrated a form of "gesture control" to the device it might actually make some headway in the home market as you wouldn't need a mouse and keyboard
Listen to the Sheep.......
I can just imagine them bleating " Silly humaaaaans!"
I guess the minister has never talked to someone who works in a warehouse [warehouse I said............!]
A place where misread bar codes are the bane of existence and invariably lead to delivery issues,which is fine with a case of dried plums but not so good for a dose of mis-prescribed medicine and whos to take the blame for getting it wrong?
Ive never seen it that hot for a long time
Re: Why legs.
They would make good sentry units at large open sites like Area 51 where they could either sit stationary and recharge by solar panels or provide mobile patrol over rough terrain.Weponizing them wouldn't be a problem with small projectile devices much akin to those used by air drones.
What kind of study
The effect of politically motivated interventions on the number of studies in regard to global warming.
I didnt read all response but I dont see a mention of a much loved SciFi machine the replicator.After all thats what the aim of the 3D printer is to make any parts anywhere i.e. on the International Space Station just think how handy it would be to not require the stockpile of many spare parts and just make them on demand.
And yes the hype is pure bunkum and full of press hype.
Never take information as sacrosanct which is verifiable from only one source.
the content is very limited
I bet theres no shortage of adverts on it
More cheaply made earwax
Just what everybody despises......[Quote from Dads Army] "Were DOOMED I tel you DOOMED!"
None cased round
Nope there was mention of solid but not metal cased ammunition in a recent thread so theres nothing to prevent an upgrade of this sort of ammunition and Im sure even a plastic version could be made should the need be required.
share a drive app
It would end up like any other bus route which goes from A to B via Z,X and Y that all but one passenger wishes to go to.
Wouldn't it make more sense both economically,time wise and CO2wise if the app flagged the nearest taxi no matter who they worked for,in other words direct communication not via a third party?
Now make a few boobs and it might generate a little more interest to us males but ear fetishist are few and far between round ear
I fail to see the difference between making a potentially lethal device with a 3D printer or any other easily programmable workshop machine so its all a storm in a tea cup.Mind those china items will be banned too shortly as some US politicians don't like tea party's now do they...
Way to go, more citizens giving away their privacy and those of there victims without even realizing it
Sounds more like an avoidable collision in that they calculated an incoming impact and moved out of the way,a bit like we do every day when driving.
Couldn't you have the makings of a laser powered drive on-board and direct a beam up from Earth to power it should it be needed?
Bah [cough] Humbug
Not all security officers work in the field so some specialist knowledge is rare for most of those behind the veil.Even the cleaners those with mops not the ones with guns, are cleared to a high security level so you could be taking the opinion of someone taking a break from vacuuming the office carpet for what its worth.
Now just stand still whilst I check your coat for weapons Mr ????.......Bland
Bagsy it lands in my back garden so I can claim the scrap
You welcome to the irradiated dust hole that was once you back garden but I think the Health and Safety Council may have something to say about the standard of cleanliness required that your liable for by the way, in the aftermath of the devastation.
Its not going to be a pretty sight.
I hope you requisitioned some bunny suits [not the ones with big ears] and gas masks for the rest of the family, when Etna finally breeches..........look out!
Its not a rectangle its a long sided square with round corners as per the patent.....
My I hope your misses understands the inference of what your hunting for but its good to know manufacturers are pandering more to the careless end user who treat tech as throw away items.
WiFi enabled Pros
Just what would they use to protect their protocols from infection?
They're handling it incorrectly
Need to shout a bit louder chaps old age may have affected its hearing
Theres an advert being aired on UK radio that states humans have 50% DNA of a banana.......go figure
The point is once the iGlasses are through to full production I think they will almost certainly look much like any other pair of glasses........so are you going to pick a fight with every spectacle wearing geek?
Oh come on its not like Norton,AVG,Microsoft and other free or paid services haven't done the same thing with their updates at least they were quick enough to pull them off the shelf.
Dishwashers v Washing by hand
As long as power consumers rely on technology to compensate for manual tasks they could easily do by hand then power demands will increase year upon year as Buzz Light Year stated "into infinity and beyond" then the tax will not reduce anything but will just be another milestone for politicians to grind at election time.These living taxes are a joke having little or no effect on the problem and merely sliding into the back pockets of those who control the wheels of industry.
There is no magic red or blue pill to get you back to reality [or not] and all sensibility has gone out of the window, its a mad world out there and the Captain has lost control of the ship.
Thank you for using my time machine.
Maybe its just a redesigned electronic magic 8 ball for Kim to make decisions with
Will NK Launch a nuke against the US or Japan?
● It is certain
● It is decidedly so
● Without a doubt
● Yes – definitely
● You may rely on it
● As I see it, yes
● Most likely
● Outlook good
● Signs point to yes
● Reply hazy, try again
● Ask again later
● Better not tell you now
● Cannot predict now
● Concentrate and ask again
● Don't count on it
● My reply is no

● Outlook not so good
● Very doubtful
So the column was pulled from the papers oy vey iz mir.....you would have thought he would have seen that coming .
In reality it's impossible to entangle cats
Well if not Cats alone then Cats with balls of wool as they are always getting entangled....
Talking of which there must be a finite way of tangling wool so somewhere on this Earth there is an identical tangled ball of wool........spooky
Would it be over expectational if I were to see on the news that the Nork research lab were to have a catastrophic accident involving nuclear fissionable material?
erotic collages of silhouettes, cut from coloured felt.
Would that be classed as touch and sniff ?
Oh I forgot to say
Apple must be at an all time low too given refurbed iPhone4`s are selling on the Shopping channel Ideal world these last couple of days
So Apple is the virtual virgin of the mobile world now
Well all I can say is sales must be at an all time low for Playboy to sink so l.......Oh sorry they cant do that any more!
The problem with most website ads is that once you purchase a product from one you get bombarded with onsite and email ads for similar products, which is plain daft as you already have one.So they are on a beating to nothing and just wasting revenue.
Re: Reminds me of...
Tell them you need to do a Risk Needs Analysis first then if they push further continue with how they need to fill in a multi page personal insurance liability form in which they will be liable for any injury's or loss of personal data and that by the way, you have two outstanding cases waiting settlement from others insurances.
Also the gap between educational and corporate pricing is rediculous
Whilst I dont agree with the price point on MS products the "educational license" is a reduction on the full price, much like a loss leader in the supermarket its there to get you in the store.
We contacted Microsoft for a response. Its spokesperson told El Reg: "I'm afraid we have nothing to share on this at this time."
You forgot the "Have a nice day!"
Re: Total Recall
Not one mention of Ripley either ooooh how could you!
"The character has been included in many Best Characters lists: In 2011, Total Film ranked her first of their top of the 100 Greatest Female Characters. Ripley has been selected as the eighth-greatest hero in American cinema history by the American Film Institute, as fifth-coolest hero in pop culture by Entertainment Weekly, the ninth-greatest movie character ever by Empire (the highest-placing female of the list), and the eighth-best movie character of all time by Premiere, In 2011, John Scalzi called her "Clearly the Best Female Character in Scifi Film"."
Well I was going to berate myself for missing it but obviously by the comments my time was better spent sacrificing a sheep to the TV Gods.
In essence the argument is that catch up TV is making income by advertising be it at the beginning or not,from another providers paid content.That would be like me plastering a big advert at no cost to myself and disregarding your protests, on the front of your house even though you have bought and paid for said home.
Whilst it may be a service that millions [?] use it is still transmitting someone elses content without a license to do so and profiteering from the action.
