Re: Bad luck...
To be fair to the dinosaurs any evidence of their space program would have weathered away by now.
Re: EE - more committed?
None of the networks want a committed customer... its all about getting new customers so you can show off you have got x number of new subscribers this year.
They never seem to mentions how many customers have left their network.
Re: There are multiple plausible ways to do this
I think we would have noticed a space launch from Gaza
On the other hand looking out into space with a good enough telescope could find God.
Or the remains of God after a collision with a space probe...
They have been referring to themselves as Space Plumbers which gets a thumbs up from me...
There is a village in Warwickshire called Wiley with a similar problem.
The village sign has been replaced with a massive rock with Willey carved into it, I don't think anybody has tried to steal that yet.
Re: Are we there yet?
I don't think they will make it out of the solar system.when it is going to take the Voyagers another 1300 years to reach the Oort cloud and 30000 years until they have crossed it.
I think somebody/something from Earth will catch up to them in a thousand years or so and bring them home to get the last Buddy Holly record in existence.
I'm sure their kids will love it.
Automatically unlock a phone in a known environment
Do the people who work for Google not keep their phone in their pocket?
Having it automatically unlock when it connects to Wifi seems like a recipe for more pocket dialing.
Curiosity has taken loads of selfies...
The headline on the Time magazine website for this story is "NASA’s Curiosity Rover Takes Selfie to Mark First Year on Mars"
Re: Didn't the IT Crowd already cover these?
Well thats the rest of my day ruined watching Matt Berry clips on YouTube.
Re: I clicked on the link to the report...
If you want the single user license it is the bargain price of £1750!
Be careful with comments like that or next time you go to Glasgow you will be Battered.
Re: I really did love Skyrim...
The Elder Scrolls should be a single player game.
I'm glad Skyrim didn't have multiplayer and am a little disappointed that Bethesda decided to release an Elder Scrolls game with a monthly fee. I hope it doesn't fail and prevent us getting a proper Elder Scrolls 6.
I had one of the Tetris Watches... My Mum had an East German pen pal and had purchased it as a Christmas Gift for their children.
My Dad pointed out sending them something with "From Russia with Love" printed on the packaging in December 89 probably wouldn't go down so well and I ended up with it!
I'm going to stop using Netscape Navigator... that will show him!
I would rather be well hung than well hanged.
The article states: "Like Iridium, the Google network will use Low Earth Orbit satellites – as distinct from the Inmarsat network which uses geostationary satellites."
Re: Wolves may be preferable to the hunt...
Its probably far too late to prosecute now but you have a claim under Dogs (Protection of Livestock) Act 1953 http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/Eliz2/1-2/28
For the purposes of this Act worrying livestock means—
(a)attacking livestock, or
(b)chasing livestock in such a way as may reasonably be expected to cause injury or suffering to the livestock or, in the case of females, abortion, or loss of or diminution in their produce.
(c)being at large (that is to say not on a lead or otherwise under close control) in a field or enclosure in which there are sheep
There is a clause that c doesn't apply to packs of hounds but sections a and b still apply to them.
Re: Things I would like to see
Having experienced the roads in India that is another place I would like to see the Google cars trying to drive.
Do they have a microphone to listen for the honking of horns from other cars?
I'm trying to think of a way we could order one for the office... Unfortunately I can't find an excuse for why the Web department would need one!
Re: Easier than doing real journalism
Haven't all the news media got bored of MH370 and forgotten about it? This is the first article I have seen for ages.
Re: you don't routinely service an alternator.
You don't routinely service an alternator... you just hit it with a hammer if it stops working.
Re: So what happens...
Everybody gets a day off work.
Isn't Musk planning to mine an Asteroid for its Platinum?
NASA have changed their mind
Apparently it wasn't a GRB
Re: Can we apply this to printed bollocks as well as electronic bollocks?
At least its available in your area... There is no Virgin Media Cable installed in my town, the nearest is approx 2 or 3 miles away but I still get the flyers.
Watch Sales rocket in the short term
Telling somebody they can't have something is a surefire way to ensure they want it.
Nintendo might even sell 10 Wii U consoles this week.
Re: England quite often get to the final or the semi final on their own
No they don't...
In the World Cup and European Championships they have got to the final once and to the Semi Finals 4 times in total (including the time they reached the final).
We generally cock it up well before the semi finals.
Re: "Cortana is powered by Bing,"
You are selling Holly short... his IQ was 6000.
Re: grand theft auto -Lambeth?
GTA London 1969 is the best game in the series... A modern remake would get my vote.
Members of Ireland's premier diving club will be disappointed to find out they are banned.
Re: Better than Android then?
"I have yet to meet anybody who can type faster on their fancy custom Android keyboard than I can on my iPhone, and a fair number of people have tried"
I have yet to see anybody who can type faster on any touch screen phone that I can on my old Sony Ericsson P1i's physical keyboard. Unfortunately the phone manufacturers don't make anything with a keyboard like that any more.
Re: Obama vs Bush
In the words of The Who:
Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss
Re: Solid day of use?
Glasses are much smaller than an Android phone... One thing I don't know is if the battery is contained within the Glass unit or if you need to carry a separate battery pack?
If the battery is contained within glass I see no reason to assume it will last all day without charging, especially if you are using bluetooth.
Although I want N to be a Non Zero number you do have to wonder "Where is everybody?"
Re: Them's fightin' words
"a US accent is no longer certain to produce a positive reaction - most try to hide it now."
You mean it did produce a positive reaction before? Wow!
You wouldn't shoot a policeman. And then steal his helmet....
Re: But, but..
"I'm half-convinced that Titanfall is what'll sell the XBone"
Except it is for sale on the 360 so hasn't sold me on getting a XB One
Re: "Apple has to be the first smartphone manufacturer anyone considers."
Well I've never needed any service because my device works correctly, I've never had to search forums for an intermittent error code because I've never had an issue like that and I wouldn't describe my phone as tacky plastic.
"Apple has to be the first smartphone manufacturer anyone considers."
Apple is always the last manufacturer of anything I would consider.
Seal being broken
The seal being broken and the 7 trumpets is a reference to the bible, specifically from the Book of Revelation Chapter 8.
Re: "He used my access to make you a domain admin?!"
He should always lock it, if only to prevent the PFY changing his wallpaper to something Pornographic.
Rookie mistake from the BOFH.
I've been eyeing up the new 3D version available on the Nintendo eStore for a few weeks trying to decide if it is worth buying...
Has anybody played this version yet and is it worth it?
Re: Catch em all
And a Time machine to go back in time to get Mew from an event.
Re: It's not surprising it failed
Android and iOS games are not an answer to Nintendo's problem...
Imagine a Pokemon game released for one of the phone OS's. You would either need to spend hours searching for Pokeballs or spend your hard cash to buy some.
Alternatively they would sell it at the normal retail price and everybody would moan that it was too expensive for a phone game.
Tin Foil Hats
Tin Foil Hats aren't for protecting yourself from mobile phone radiation, they are for stopping the Government spying on you with Mind Rays.
Do they still work for the original purpose?
I am the only person working in IT who doesn't do tech support for their friends?
I always tell them I make websites for a living... if they want help with their website I will see what I can do but I can't help them with their rubbish laptop.
Luckily none of them have ever taken me up on the offer of helping with a website!
I won't miss flappy birds
I uninstalled it... stupid game.
