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.

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.

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....

"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.
My 2001 VW Golf has a similar gallon of Oil life...
I should really get somebody to look into that!
I thought these articles were supposed to have 1 image per page so you maximize the advert views?
Re: Sod Teleportation
Why use the Joke Alert icon?
I really want a hoverboard... some of the self tying shoes and the self drying coat would be good too.
They had better be quick inventing these things, they only have 1 year left.
Re: I wanted to go.
If you want to see Colossus go to the Computing Museum... its probably more interesting than the rest of Bletchley Park for a Reg reader and costs £5 to get in rather than £15. Or if you just want to see Colossus and not the rest of the Museum it only costs £2.
I used to love the ROTM articles... It was always one of the first categories I checked when visiting the site.
I suppose in defence of its removal there are only so many "I, for one, welcome" comments you could read.
You would be surprised how many non-tech literate people go to facebook by double clicking the big blue "e" then typing facebook into the search box that opens on their homepage.
They do this because the first person who showed them the internet showed them this way and they never learnt any better.
Re: Werner McGoole
Its a shame I can only upvote you once... here have a beer!
Its been in space for 10 years so was paid for pre-austerity.
Re: Call me Mr Sceptical
Hello Mr Sceptical.
It would be great to travel to these far off solar systems but I think we should sort out human travel around our own solar system first before we start trying to get to other ones.
They seem to have stopped calling me
I used to enjoy the sport of seeing how long can I keep them on the phone by not mentioning my laptop is running Linux.
30 minutes is my record.
Re: Fanny Like a Hippo's Yawn
Like waving a sausage in a cave?
I don't understand why you would want to pay a monthly fee for this when you have been able to plug in your Generic MP3 player via a simple cable or connect it via bluetooth with any decent car radio for a while now.
Well I know what I am spending my Christmas Money on now!
Re: Capture and relocate?
Why have they got a table booked at Millyway's?
Re: I am down the Saaarf...
Good Luck with that...

Re: @ JustaKOS - laptop shell into which a smartphone can be plugged
Motorola make one that plugs into some of their Android phones...
I know because I use one with my Raspberry Pi
Re: "Keep blasting, brave Curiosity! We're all right behind you!"
There is no escape from Curiosity... it can point its laser in any direction it wants.
We should just be grateful it is trapped on another planet in case it tries to turn on us.
Re: Wait, Koh again?
When did she work for Apple?
Her career path since graduating from Harvard in 1993 has been working for various Government agencies/deparments in the 90's followed by working for 2 different Law firms between 2000 and 2008, since then she has been a Judge.
She has also ruled against Apple in some cases she has judged: http://allthingsd.com/20120419/federal-judge-forces-apple-google-others-to-face-antitrust-suit/

Somebody near me used to have B16NOB but I haven't seen it recently.

Steve Parrish still had it back in August this year... he also owns 6OCK.
"You have to ask questions about the character of someone who wants that on their car."
He claims it was to stop his wife driving his cars.
Re: Ban children!
Think of the awesome video games we could have if it wasn't for people thinking of the children.
I thought everybody knew the second shooter from the Grassy Knoll was President Kennedy thanks to Lister running out of Curry?
You forgot the cat videos, they are very important too.

Re: Mass starvation and widespread looting.
The self service tills are running on XP... I saw one displaying the default XP screen saver at the weekend.
Re: I wonder how much Nintendo would pay for Xbox
The Japanese mentality wouldn't let Nintendo buy Xbox because that would be admitting their product was not suitable and they made a mistake.
To be honest I think the Wii U is going to have better sales figures this Christmas than people expect. A lot of parents are going to look at the PS4 and Xbox One see the prices and buy their kid a Wii U.
Its all down to perspective... I was going to complain about Leicestershire being included in the South!
Re: What a load of British whingers.
I don't know why I am defending our record in space because it is pitiful but we contribute more to the ESA every year than India spent on this Mars Rocket.
For more recent successes we also released a paper aircraft in space in 2009 and crashed Beagle 2 into Mars with the assistance of the ESA in 2003
