With this massive build up, if the thing fails when it's launched it'll be worse than watching England play football.
There could just be a completely different way to communicate that we haven't discovered yet -- once we do it might be crammed full of spam messages from billions of worlds advertising their wares.

"El Reg on the other hand is just as likely to make fun of Apple as they are to sing their praises."
El Reg is a Nokia luva. Every1 nos dat.
Re: We could be in a simulation
You, and everything else, might be simulated, but I know my thoughts are not.
What are you chaps doing for drinks? Is it water and tea all week? I notice no one has included squash in their shop.
Re: She looks like...
I think she's very pretty so shut your mouth.
10 years later...
(note: start of July it'll be 3 years since special project LOHAN began).
How is getting a date difficult? I find that, if the lady is single, asking is usually all it takes.
Facebook - so only people who don't have proper jobs can comment.
XP is the number 1 selling item of Office software on amazon uk....
"available in the States? How is that even possible?"
Maybe the BBC want to keep the more recent episodes to show as repeats a few times -- possibly saving more in not having to create new content than they'll gain by licensing to streaming services?
Re: Imagine how much better it could be
My butler signs for all my deliveries - if your butler doesn't I suggest you look to replace him - or if you live in an apartment block then the concierge should be signing for deliveries.
Notion's where it's at.
What's with all the f-ing swearing in the f-ing sh-ty article?
Where's my prize?
I have a use for it.

Re: oh, ffs
" that's aboit what I paid for my laptop all those years ago"
it's £350 more than I paid for my 13in Macbook Pro Retina!
"I will get one of my first of the morning turds, remold and reshape it, into a turd and fire it into space."
The meteorite came from space and the intention is to send it back into space.
To achieve the same with your turd you would need to reform it and shoot it back up your rear.
"Just zone 1 London underground costs over 30 quid."
I'd happily pay 3 times that if they ever introduced first class carraiges on the tube.
Re: Revenge of the Mammoths!
Ah, the hairy virus. Also afflicted the Neanderthals - hence explaining their extinction also.

The photo needs to be renewed every ten years so your drivers license is invalid and if you get caught using it you'll get a £1000 fine.
Downvoted for downvoting a downvoter.
Pushed you over the grand.
Sounds like they might have made a sign error. Probably wiped the story once they realised they were looking 5 years back in time rather than 5 years forward.
Oh well. Good effort.
Bump 'n' Jump
Bump 'n' Jump was the only arcade game I became addicted to. Couldn't stop playing it.
Looks very good. Might get one.
I really like my current blackberry. It suits my usage patterns:
SMS, email and occasional web browsing. One other thing I use the phone for is taking the odd rare photograph if I happen across something interesting while out and about and the camera is really quite bad --- any idea what it's like on this one?
Re: why haven't they found us and made contact yet?
Maybe there's a lot more to existence than the observable universe and our animal life. Perhaps the more advanced civilisations are exploring that place.
I also love Hello Kitty.

Re: a simple explanation
"She still replied I was equally as mean and controlling though..."
Take her bed away and make her sleep in the floor. That'll teach her.
What's wrong with being a slut? I think they're lovely.
Re: Top 10 badge?
I like this idea.
AC should be a Gold badge user -- they post more than anyone.
Whenever I get a thumbs down I huddle up on the floor sobbing. It's the worst injustice I can think of.
Re: Not exactly a shock
"Even a difference in survival of 5% would mean the survival trait would be dominant in the population within a couple of generations."
Yes --- when you propagate the 5% difference through the whole species. But, unless it's a super-power, it means f-all for an individual.

I knew that storing all my urine in bottles in the attic would pay off one day.
Re: You're updating it wrong.
"For example, the update promises to fix a bug that prevents iPhone 5s from installing software updates wirelessly"
Presumably not on the iPhone 5.
