Re: All I want to know is...
I think it will, since Iceweasel is built on Firefox code, but without the branding. To all intents and purposes, it's Firefox with different logos.
But no doubt somebody will do a newer version that doesn't have this "feature".
Re: What's really missing here is a BBC film crew.
Playmobil film crew would be better.
...before the app starts showing you adverts based on the content of your SMS messages? Yet another reason I'm glad I jumped ship to WP8 - I don't even need a facebook app.
Nuke - simply because they're cool.
Streisand Effect, anyone?

Surely it should be Windows 8.11?
That's how you start a Friday off.
Happy BOFH day!
Re: Oh Microsoft
I use FTP (from the command prompt) in Windows to download a real browser... much more satisfying.
Re: Been there, done that.
Good old Nokia 8110.
They spent too long on the daily fail website and it picked up the right hand column.
Re: I used to like KitKats
Herschey stuff is in Asda most likely because Wal-mart own Asda and can stock them with American goodies.
Re: Leaving n-factor authentication aside for a moment...
You could even add a couple of extra commands that will keep the copying running in the background after logging out of the console. Something to do with "nohup" or something like that I think... it's one of the BOFH stories.
"I spent hours trying to get my BBC micro to make the same noise. There's probably an app for that now."
Should write to them.. I mean they used a Beeb for most of the sound effects and graphics for series in that time. Dr Who being a prime example.
Re: Wow they are lucky
It's not a nice thing to happen. I experienced it myself a few years ago and it wasn't pleasant... suddenly my best was no longer good enough after 12 months so they started moving the goalposts, telling me I had to improve or go bye-byes. How does one improve when they keep raising their so called standards?
The fun things that can happen when your team leader and then line manager decide to leave for no real reason and HR take over running your department...
Re: Optional... for now
And add the fact Jellybean users *will* be getting adverts in Google Maps too. Poor sods.
That's the worst thing anyone can do with spam. It just confirms the address is active and automatically gives the ok to send more.
Re: If you run an ad blocker, you're gonna have a bad time, OK?
Have made the necessary changes and it looks like everything's working properly now.
Virtual beer for your patience in dealing with my self created mistake.
Entirely possible that's the cause - I've recently done a rebuild and dangerously neglected to add El Reg to the whitelist. I was curious because I saw the same problem in IE, which has no such feature installed. Checking today it appears to be working normally there.
How odd - anyway it appears problem solved, so the CR pixies can live for another day...
Carriage return pixies invading?
Has anybody else noticed that articles seem to have an unnecessary carriage return in them? I've checked random articles, including one from last year and the problem is there as well. It's not an author issue, and it's not a browser issue. Te only pattern I can see is that it appears to be the 3rd paragraph in every case. Have the CR pixies invaded?
The only other explaination I can think of is articles seem to be running through a BOFH/PFY style service that would easily do this kind of thing by default, to wind up management/beancounters.
only a flash..
A flash that is result of a 50 megaton nuclear explosion per chance? That should do it...
So does this mean...
Sky will pester the MoD to rename Skynet to something else, in case people confuse it with Sky TV?
Re: no legal porn
So... would that make the Venus Demilo statue the world's first paraplegic porn?
Re: I hope he has breasts
They're not breasts! They're Dalek bumps...
...would it be until somebody misinterprets the "charging by microwaves" part and consequently nuke their iFondle-device in a popular meal cooking device?
Look behind you! A three-headed monkey!
Re: I was ready to complain
Don't forget to add reality TV itself to your list.
Happy BOFH day to all!

Re: The ISPs have rewired everything
"That is called IPv6 -- every device has it's own unique address."
Separate address yes, but it still goes through the same router, so no, they don't have a separate connection to the internet, unless they happen to be sat on different wifi stations, or running off mobile data.
Re: The ISPs have rewired everything
"Or is intentionally spouting lies and bullshit."
That's part of the day job of a politician isn't it?
Re: missed a trick
They could start by putting a decent email client on WP8... that'd be a start - the one it currently has is pants - you can only attach images to emails. Instead they expect you to email links to your Skydrive to share documents.

"Much prefer Cantonese - which is more like an argument in a street market ;)"
And the food is better too...
That'll be the fun joy-of-joys that was NetBEUI.
They'll skip 3.12 except in China... it was just 3.11 with Chinese support and fonts etc. They will skip straight to Kernel 95 (4.0).
Re: Windows 3.x was never an Operating System
I thought NT 3.5(1) was their first full 32bit OS. Unless they mean consumer grade...
"The cards are still woefully underpowered when running under Linux, compared to Windows."
Really? RtCW (for me) has really a really strange habit of dropping framerate to single digits on a stock installation of Windows (most recent Radeon drivers), yet under Linux it plays at a much higher framerate, with no drops - it completely trounces Windows in performance.
Re: WFW 3.11
Especially if you get the neon ones.
Re: First Google Play reviews, now...
Give them time... at some point they will eventually bake that requirement into the use of Gmail - if they haven't done so already.
Re: "Starve pirates of oxygen"?
Mr Flibble's very cross... you shouldn't have run away from him... What are we going to do with them Mr Flibble?
Dear El Reg...
Please can we have Playmobil reconstruction of the trial when they laugh him out of the courtroom?
"So, the man's a lawyer, therefore he's a natural wanker..."
There's a difference?

Re: If you've been drafted in to drive a gov IT project that's gone south...
Sounds a lot like a trip around one of the BOFH's convoluted IVR systems.
Re: What they SHOULD be doing??
Getting paid to watch videos... I could live with that...
My question is...
Why is it phallus-shaped?
