Heyyy, you seem to be trying to post a DRUNK PICTURE. You know your boss looks at this?

Re: only a millenial

And if you're drunk enough to post an inappropriate picture, won't you be just as drunk enough to ignore the warning and just click ok?

What does WIMP mean in this context? I only know Window Icon Mouse Pointer. I have never heard it in relationship to mobile phones before.

Re: Windows for Mother?

I don't really care about operating systems as long as the software I want to run works. I was surprised though at my 76 year old mother buying herself a Mac book Air, because she has only ever used Windows. She loves it and managed to work out what she wanted to do in a few hours.

Re: @William Donelson wtf ?

I've been very disappointed with the last few versions of Dolphin. It seems more unstable since Flash support was removed. Currently using Firefox, but would go back to Dolphin in a moment if they sort out the stability problems.

You learn something new every day.

I always thought that .uk was for the Ukraine. I have now learnt that the Ukraine uses .ua.

Today was not wasted after all.

Welcome to our Wi-Fi: Devicescape reinvents landing page

Crowd-sourced experience even...

Meh

That's basically a client app which automatically logs on to free Wi-Fi points, bypassing any landing page though the use of crowd-sourced experience to provide connectivity without user intervention.

What on Earth does 'croud-sourced experience' mean? I recognise all three individual words but not in this context. Is it like that wisdom of crowds thing some illusionist claimed to use to predict the lottery on tv a few years back?

The only reason I didn't upgrade to a third HTC phone was because of the sealed batteries in the newer models.

Barbed Wire fences

Someone once told me that TCP, unlike IPX, could be used to send signals over barbed wire fences (or chicken wire) because it was so resillliant. Does any one know if this is true?

Fail on censorship

I find the attempt at censorship for #3 funnier than any of the ring tones.

In the article it is described as 'c*nt calling', in the iTunes store page they have 'c**t calling', but the logo next to it clearly displays the full text 'cunt calling'.

Anyway shouldn't it be 'answering' instead of calling?

Re: In related news,

Not being sarcastic here but what does Yahoo! actually do now? Are they a search engine still?

I know I could Google them but I don't know if I'm that interested.

Amazon ships Kindle Fire HD, Paperwhite to Brits

Not also known as SC

Re: No Kindle HD for me today.

Your're right. Amazon must have changed their web page. At the time the option to buy a non-sponsored version wasn't available or was extremely well hidden. Pity, I love my Kindle and I like using Amazon as a company, but as I said earlier I'd already bought an alternative device.

Re: No Kindle HD for me today.

Because as Martin says below the non sponsored ones were not particularly well advertised. By the time I found out you could get them without the special offers I had already bought an alternative.

No Kindle HD for me today.

I had pre-ordered a Kindle Fire HD but when I read through the specs again I came across the 'special offers' straight to my screen saver and home screen. Apparently I wouldn't have to worry about these wasting screen estate because the offers would appear In my notification area. My order was cancelled 10 minutes later.

One concern was that a standard kindle needs you to set up one click payment. I could just imagine letting my autistic son use my device to watch You Tube videos etc and him clicking on the offers and buying me lots of things I don't want. Getting a refund for digital content I think would be a struggle. Happy to be proved wrong but not willing to take that risk. (I don't have a payment card set up for the Play Store).

I can just about understand the concept of an Apple Store - with its nice shiny Apple toys and legions of devoted fans. But Microsoft? Sorry I just can't see it.
