I'm obviously a bit dim..
.. but why didn't M$ buy all the shares it could at $19.20 instead of offering $31..
Paris 'cos she hasn't got a clue either.
" ... the *really* (re)productive people in this world browse porn."
Sorry to break this to you, but w*nk*ng isn't reproduction.
I put it to you that this isn't a real phone. Those pictures are photoshop specials.
Mach number is a measure of speed related to the speed of sound.
As this test was conducted in Helium, the speed of sound is higher and thus Mach 1 = 972 m/s compared with 331 m/s for air (both at 0 deg C)
So, was the actual speed Mach 9 Helium (31432 km/h) or Mach 9 Air (10724 km/h)? Given that they think it was only "probably" not a good idea to run a rocket sled through a hydrogen tunnel I think we know the answer...
Now if it's got wifi too, then I want one !
Not electronics at all
I think you'll find that the "nanotube output transistor" is still waiting to be invented.
What about Apple's own stores?
Presumably they aren't included in the AT&T figures ..
So a PC in an internet cafe wasn't secure.
Tell me you'd have run the story if it wasn't Heathrow..
And lets not start on...
".. perhaps I'm related .."
Either that or you benn having sex with scyphozoans
Re: Lucky they weren't in the UK
He was lucky to *only* get arrested. At least they didn't chase him onto a tube train then stand on him and blow his brains out.
Time to find another country to live methinks...
"military-grade AES hardware-based encryption"
As opposed to the other sort? No, wait, AES is a standard, so it's the same everywhere.
I'm going to be out of pocket :(
Presumably this means every time my little chaps go on their merry egg fertilisation hunt, I'll have to pay a license fee to Cornell Uni?
Punters left out
Over here we are a accustmed to being with a network, and getting upgrades when the contract runs out.
This isn't happening with the iFone, thanks to the O2 numpties believing the Apple hype and agreeing to their stupid marketing plan.
So if the angular velocity is *the same*, then how come they are spiral shaped?
For Lewis Page Fanboys...
Alan Coren Lives on!
At least Mr Page seems to have been taken over by his spirit.
Absolutely brilliant writing mate !
Ditch the US entirely
They can't be trusted at all, and will leave our forces in the shit when it suits them.
What about the RAF Chinooks which can't be used because of a software problem?
Poor jokes guys..
It's obvious.. they were all as sick as a dog.
Easy to kill it stone dead
Just let the looney wifi haters know that their kids will have to be scanned by radio radiation to read these chips...
Not Linux !!!
I think they are using Wind River's VXWorks as the RTOS
Eh.. 98% of a MW?
"Modern transmitters can be incredibly efficient, with efficiencies exceeding 98 per cent. However, a broadcast transmitter with a megawatt power stage transferring 98 per cent of that into the antenna can also be viewed as a 20 kilowatt electric heater."
98% of a megawatt is 980 kw where I come from. 20kW is the heat lost in the amplifier, not radiated.
Well done Mr Page
Brilliant, just brilliant.
Your talents are wasted here. Have you thought of doing stand-up?
It's been done already..
By this daring swiss chap
Metric system invented by...
yes, us Brits !
From the Wiki:-
"The metric system, and metre was first fully described by Englishman John Wilkins in 1668 in a treatise presented to the Royal Society some 120 years before the French adopted the system"
presumably this person is another unknown american airhead soap/porn/musicstar. Who gives a f***?
How do you see the originating ip address of an email in your hotmail account?
Someone said "What's most likely is that intelligent people, including the best teachers, who could get work elsewhere legged it when the rain started glowing in the dark. This selective migration would lower the average intelligence and teacher quality having a compound effect on academic outcomes."
I think you'll find that teachers moving away has a benificial effect on average intelligence... :P
Only a fine..
And it'll be a poultry sum I bet.
So wrong El reg
Joan Bakewell is the "thinking man's crumpet", and cannot be redefined by some jonny-come-lately iJournos :(
Future not too bright
So on the heels of yesterdays story of the Orange MarketingTwatDepartment associating their company with smoking, now they do this brainless thing.
Obviously not a cool outfit to be associated with.
More trolls.. Apple won't have to look far..the Newton had a touch-screen keyboard 12 years ago <rolls eyes>
So Harold Shipman came back as a cat.. interesting
This is a USA only system, as the FCC only has jurisdiction there. To talk of world-wide access is simply more marketing speak.
What a tosser..
"Analysts have been warning Apple for years that the iPod risked going the way of the starting handle after the invention of automatic ignition."
So when exactly was "Automatic Ignition" invented? I can't say I've ever heard of it..
At least he wasn't using his mobile...
.. or did he have a hands-free kit installed?
So the flood plains are getting flooded are they?
Well consider how they became flood plains, and then figure out if this occurred in the last century, or the last millenia.
Global warming - well yes of course. It's a natural phenomenon.
Caused by us? I don't think so..
Something wrong here
The date on that picture is 11 June, and it is the north pole. So how come it is dark? Has the earth tipped over on it's axis while we were looking the other way?
