I don't get it.
Excuse me, I'm just a dumb german, but I don't see anything offensive in the term jam rag. Sounds like some kind of cleaning equipment for marmalade or something.
Anyhow, on second thought I really, really, really don't care.
Maybe the ISP's should go on strike and demand more of that "Internet money".
I don't know if I mentioned it already...
...But, I love you guys.
(No leg-humping though)
Really bad idea
Then again, I'm one of those types who are soooo tired of all kinds of devices blinking and lighting up for no reason at all.
(You know, like that blue blinking ear-gear for mobiles...)
Headline's fine as it is
No, really. The most important bits are there: The words Paris and Hilton. Everybody will remember the rest of the sentence as XXXXX anyway...
"HP, Sun, Dell and IBM fail AND aid their customers."
What a bunch of losers, aiding their customers...
/pedantic mode on
I'm not a native english speaker, but I'm pretty sure this should read:
"... fail TO aid their customers." (?)
/pedantic mode off
AFAIK adaptive optics involve an artificial guidestar (laserbeam), the fuziness of which is in direct relation to the 'adaptive' part of adaptive optics, which in turn involves a sectioned mirror where single sections can be moved to "adapt".
(I'm wondering who'd be so sad to "enhance" his webcam in that way...)
On a completely unrelated note, I lost count of how many times I read about some boffins pleading to not use the word boffin here on ElReg. Dear boffins, please stop that, it is not funny anymore and it won't happen...
Btw, light years are soooo yesteryear. Use sheep years instead...
I don't get it...
I spent at least several days of my life at +150 mph until now, but I'm a german, so that's OK then.
But did you ever think about how driving at high speed might perhaps prolong your life? I mean, with general relativity and all that stuff around...
Now, where's that coat of mine...
I don't get it, has the presumed laptop in this story no copy/paste function? Or is that irrelevant to the plot?
Why would I want to use a "Backup-Solution" to backup a few slides and some spreadsheets when the copy/paste function works actually very well with USB-Sticks?
It may seem a bit strange, but I'm wondering if Paris Hilton has an iPhone. I surely would like to read about that...
