Mine is the smart meter in a lead lined box (or whatever i need to stop signals coming in and going out) :D
Maybe if microsoft had listening from day 1 and not released something most people hated and found Impractical, people wouldn't be 'picking on them'!!
I read enough from tests and prereleases etc to know to avoid it long before it was released, they chose not to listen, so why moan?
I once got recognised by a work colleague who put me in for a company recognition award. I got it, and got myself a cordless screwdriver!! Doesn't sound much, but the fact that someone took the time and effort to put me forward, and the fact that the company had this scheme and erwarded staff, has stayed with me for about the last 19 years! I've never forgot it, a small incentive like that goes a loooooooooong way, I donlt even work there now. So, David Wildblood if you're out there somewhere! You're the 'BOM' and thank you :)
p.s. Dave, my hair aint long anymore!
We still run office XP on Win7 and still can see no reason to upgrade!
TWO rules, that would be all they need.
I have TWO rules, that would be all they need.
1. Get a (legit) job. Or fuck off.
2. Speak te language. Or fuck off.
"Guns don't kill people" - In that case, can the idiot that said that load a gun, point it at yourself, pull the trigger and fire the weapon in to your forehead. Now, can you tell me how well you feel? Hello? hello? Oh, you're dead! How can that happen, guns don't kill people!! What a fucking moron.
Yet more shite justice, rob and get a slap on the wrist. Off to find a shop!!!!!!
HMV are just robbing thieving bastards. They took peoples money at xmas when they KNEW they were going to do this.Wait till after Xmas, a common ploy, take people for a\s much money as they can at xmas then run off with it. BLATANT THEFT however you try to reword it
Last 50 times as long - do they bollox!
Not to forget they cost 20 times as much.
Love how Apple they say the patents are not invalid "due to obviousness", after they made a song and dame about a rectangle neimg their shape and property. PMSL I hope this is one of many eat Karma bitches that Apple receive.
I'm too weak to resist! nobody has said is so sod it I'm going to!!
Only Apple is allowed to make rectangle laptops, it's Apples copyrighted Shape, Samsung should have maade a star shaped one. Let the sueing commence!!! Coat, peg, i'm going ..
if Apple can patent a rectangle then curved corners AND have it allowed, then I hope thet get nailed by someone elses pathetic patent.
followers of the Beast receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. Then the silly bint should have used her left hand instead if she was THAT bothered, of blaming religious beliefs.
A burning Apple!
A burning Apple would be nice to display a hatred towards apple's stupid 'we own copyright to rectangles' and 'you can only use our software to copy files to an mp3 player(!)' etc ;)
The 1st time I've ever seen administrators do something good for the customer, nice one :) And good on the Dixon's group, a lovely gesture.
Just makes me hate Apple even more. Wish they'd grow up, or go under ffs
Swap ur hi tech pc for a speak and spell that does very little compared to the pc and costs twice as much. FAILLLLLLLL!
All hail Lewis Page! my thoughts on the iphone precisely :)

Download and run Symantec products?! WTF!!
The whole article is great apart from 'Download and run Symantec's Zeroaccess removal tool.' I'd never install ANYTHING by Symantec super bloat loada crap doesn't work wont install. If ou're doing this you've enogh problems and spyware without installing MORE by Symantec!
Just have done and call it shit, like everything else they make. Blunt but true lol
An enjoyable article
An enjoyable article that was great to read. You hit the nail on the head everytime and I concur with your views. I still love lego in my 30's and so will my boy :)
I've a much better way
Stick with Windows 7 and leave Win8 in the trash with Vista!
Would YOU trust google with your search data? Ooooh that's a good idea let's nick it crosses my mind evertime I think of searching using google. They have a reputation in my mind for being untrustworthy, so I wouldn't trust them with ANY invention ideas!
I'm sure the kid will get fantastic grades now she's sent him to prison
Its patented ideas, such as producing a tablet with a rectangular front screen with rounded corners.
So it's patented a rectangle front screen, because all others are fucking round aren't they.
... with rounded corners. Because everything these days has sharp right angles.
I wish apple would FOAD. Please someone patent the alphabet or plastic and then sue apple.
PMSL at bootnote!!! :D
Patenting a water sensor?
Oops better shut down nuclear power plants. FFS water sensors have existed for years. Stickign one in a phone is patentable?? Yes I know there's more to it, but soft/hard ware that detects volume and period of water exposure etc is hardly new, my boiler does the same thing when it refills. Wonder what I'm missing, the obvious?
'What the patent describes is a way of, for example, colour-biasing the peripheral field of view so that it dynamically matches the predominant colour of the displayed image or movie'
How does this patent stand up to what researchers at MIT's Media Lab's have exactly done already, but using it for TV as apposed to glasses?
All seems a bit the same to me, it's about the showing of blurry colours in periperal vision. I don't know much about patents but Prior art surely? all be it on a big screen as apposed to little screen strapped to your head! (glasses)
Interesting and fascinating
I found this a fascinating and interesting read! Not sure that's a good thing all things geeky in to consideration! but I enjoyed the article, well written and well explained :)
Nice jubs indeed!
Nice jubs indeed! ;)
non-geographic numbers -wtf is the point? The only use is to rip us consumers off. I couldn't care less where they are geographically in the UK, neither does anybody else. We just want to make a phone call to a landline using a landline number so we know where we stand on billing etc
Maybe if the world's experts made it's mind up and stop moving the goal posts people WOULD believe! One moment ice caps are melting, the next 'but others are refreezing'. It's pollution ... but then we find somehing like it was worse and more fire and brimstone back in the days of the dinosaur. It's a cycle and the ice layers show historical changes liely because of sun cycles and tide changes, no it's not it'schopping down tree's ... etc etc etc. Make your fecking minds up!
Do I really need the plastic item to have red streaks to say ooh look at me I'm scratched to buggery, but don't worry in a few days I'll look normal again! How about just getting scratched and repairing itself quietly? Do we need the song and dance of mimicking nature by turning red???
trade secret eh? then maybe force india should have PAYED for them not for all intents and purposes got them therough deceipt (non payment of services!). Excellent decision by the judge, common sense at last! Team India didn't pay for the design so they didn't bloody own it! :)
