Where the hell is....
...the picture of the girl in the pool? that's the only reason I'm here.
If I invented a real cold fusion machine ...
...anyone who didn't believe me could just take a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut. I'd be busy flogging it to the energy companies for more money than I would know what to do with.
I didn't know there was a debate...
...I've always pronounced it 'jif'.
A pain, but just go and DL the film from somewhere. You've already paid to see it so where you get it from is irrelevant.
Re: People who want to store this much want faster drives
Yes - your HD video stream will really struggle when the transfer rate is a mere 990Mbs....
"You have $100bn which is non-taxable. Do something with it so we can take $35Bn off you".
Next they'll be demanding that anyone with savings goes out and spends them, so that the US government can benefit from the sales tax, whilst implying that not doing so is unpatriotic.
this is an article about Apple yet there are not enough downvotes. Was the link from the front pages actually phished and this is not El Reg after all?
What was the question?
It'd be interesting to see which one of these the question actually asked was:
1. Do you mind being tracked
2. Would you agree to be tracked for a small insurance premium saving
3. Would you agree to be tracked for a large insurance premium saving
4. Would you agree to be tracked if it meant you could get car insurance?

The corner shop near me...
... Has some brand-you've-never-heard-of cheap mineral water older than this.
I thought the economic benefit of HS2...
...was all the fees and payments made to the various consultants, upper-ranking engineering-company-bosses, technicians etc who are friends of the people spending the(our) money and who will, in return, invite said spenders to dinner, golf, holidays etc?
Not to mention that the consultants, architects, engineers etc will save an hour a day on traveling, which they will put to good use by spending an extra hour at home, rather than in the office earning the fictitious money on which the whole cost/benefit thing is based?
They could at least be honest about it.
I think the logic is..
...that because you've rejected their fair offer of compensation and then ensured that everyone has to incur yet more costs (which is YOUR choice), then these extra costs are your responsibility. And if they come to more than your compensation, then that's your lookout.
So your pint gets spilled and the offender offers to buy you 3 pints and pay to have your trousers cleaned (i.e. pay your costs). But no - you reject this and hire scientists and brewers etc to try to prove that your trousers are ruined and need replacing and force the offender to do the same. Eventually, when all is said and done, you only get awarded the cost of your pint but all the scientists etc need paying. The offender shouldn't pay as they offered to settle in the first place (and they weren't trying to weasle out of paying, as they offered more than you finally got), which would have avoided all this.
The brewers and scientists aren't to blame, either - you hired them.
Now we want
the hand-held version.
Re: Who are they kidding?
"A remote control for the price of a small TV."
Absolutely. So there you are, needing an advanced remote control, and you see this. "Ridiculous", you say,"I'm not paying that to control my £10,000 home cinema setup - not when I can spend the money on a small TV".
One small TV later....
"Bugger. I now need a remote control for my £10,110 home cinema setup which now has an extra, redundant, small TV and an extra remote control."

"It was there! On the side! Just like I said!"
I couldn't picture that much baked beans, until I calculated that it was enough to fill one of the new breed of super-sized container ships.
But if the camera was EyeToy, then the tablet should be StrokeToy or FeelToy, not EyePad...
...simply shocked, that there's a search term that causes Google to return with links to porn...
I had a watch 40 years ago...
Re: utter bollocks
Ummm, are you thinking that the used batteries get thrown away - i.e. they're used once? I don't think they're using lots of Duracells, but big battery packs that get removed, swapped and then recharged at the swap station, to be swapped for the empty battery o fthe next car that comes in. The only overhead that this would have over a 'conventional' recharging station is the battery-swapping facility.
Or was this just a ill-informed rant at electric cars in general?
Telling the customer what they really want...
...only works if you're right.
Wasn't it Heny Ford who said "If I'd asked the customer what they wanted, they'd have said a faster horse."
The crew mustz have had several minutes warning - must have been terrifying as they would have known the only possibel outcome.
"It's made Apple look like dicks for patenting a rectangle."
It's made other people look like dicks for thinking that Apple were patenting a rectangle...
".......Arabic has given more to computing than most cultures." Like what?
Those funny squiggles we use to count things? you know, numbers?
When asked the question "How do the Heisenburg compensators work?" on a program about the science in Star Trek, a representative of the show replied "Very nicely, thank you".
...ship their source code?
Re: Why would you ever want to do this?
Got to agree - Objective-C syntax isn't *that* different from Java and the hard bit is learning all the API's and what they can do, which you're going to have to do to take full advantage of the platform, not matter what language you code it in.
Could be usefull though if you've 1,000s of line of core application Java code (the 'model' of your MVC) which would just be a pain to recode in Obj-C.
I once wwnt into WHSmiths...
...and bought a copy of the Daily Mail and a copy of Viz.
I was a bit embarrassed to be seen with such a childish rag, so I hid it inside the copy of Viz.
Until I read the Daily Mail...
...I thought that the 'Saville Row' was where clothes were made.
Scary news story..
...about some guy who apprehended a burglar with a shotgun he kept at home: he said that it was "the moment he had been waiting for", which speaks volumes for the attitudes of some of the gun fans - I bet he was overjoyed at the oportunity to use it!
Even the old 'Constitution' argument sounds weak...
...I mean - "I need my gun - I might need to overthrow the government`? (or 'guvmint', 'gunnerment' etc)
Anyone rememebr the TV show 'Benson'..?
Cast Member: "Remember Benson, guns don't kill, people kill."
Benson: "Yeah - people with guns."
For that authentic NRA experience...
...are there sections in the game where you can kiss and caress your gun, and make sweet, sweet love to it...?
I find their lack of faith...
"Disney is making another movie".
Really! Wow! When's it out?
Re: Shark. Jumped.
Agreed. You read the articles/comments and suddenly think - "Hang on a moment - adults don't talk like that. Schoolkids in a playground, yes; but adults, no".
Re: Just goes to show...
Wow - I was expecting such ridiculous, anti-Mac bollox to attract far more up-votes.
Just goes to show...
...That Apple users are stupid, giving their own money away to losers.
Is this 'signal propoagation' stuff...
...connected to the fact that nothing can travel faster then light - not even information. So if you had a metal rod between the Earth and Alpha Centuri and there was a person on each end and you tried to comminucate by pulling or twisting the rod (thinking the other end would move in the same way at the same time )and you could use this to communicate instantly over 4 light years, the movement wouldn't arrive at the other end until over 4 years later?
Again, icon, apologies etc. The question may not warrent it, but I think the answer may well do.
Re: Works fine on my ipad
"Only one way to find out ... FIGHT!"
Excellent idea - where's the fight?
Re: Console name
"surely it should be the Companion Cube."
How about "The Game Cube"? Oh, hang on...
