Destiny. 500 MEEELION ???
I have the Alpha, watched the boys trying it out, didn't even bother myself after what I saw.
I was expecting serious jaw-droppery, at least visually at the very least. Will check out the Beta (have a pass for that when it's out) but freebie game (well, kinda freemium) Warframe kicks its arse and have only spent about £12 on it for well over 200 hours play so far.
If the Beta isn't a serious advance on the Alpha (not expecting it to be) then I may well cancel the pre-order.

Just ban the USA. "period"
Re: I wonder how they got this information?
You really think it's that likely that you're gonna get blown up?
The terrorists have won, methinks.
Re: I wonder how they got this information?
Any idea if that repellent works on the Robobadgers in Warwickshire?
I've never seen one (yet, natch) though I'd feel safer with some good Robobadger Repellent to hand!
Re: Mildly amusing
OK so that's county...
We do now have a list of good noise-generating terms to put into communications in general.
I'm buying shares in Western Digital, anticipating the noise increasing NSA storage needs ;o)
So if LJ relocated to, say, Germany
The NSA would lose a lot of intel from being outside much of the traffic (assuming LJ is USA-hosted currently)?
As much as they're ever outside of anything, of course.
Re: Dear Judge. Can I call them scum sucking assclowns?
Tez, is that you..?
Re: Looks more like...
Seconded, having just googled her. Much more like her than Lohan
Used her VOICE ?
How hammered was she not to realise she was in a voice booth for Rockstar when that got recorded?
Unless they somehow stole (actionable) or got a royalty-free (tough titties, Lohan) bunch of her speech then that shows she knows exactly what was going on, excepting the afore-alluded-to hammeredness.
It could of course be an intentional and cynical tie-up between Lushy Lohan and Rockstar to generate coverage, let's not rule that out.
And the insides of camera bodies
Ahhh The Oatmeal
I too read Oatmeal's Tesla thingy and it makes me tempted but unless uk.gov are offering me a large bung to trade in the XKR for an S I can't afford one (85kW, natch), nor do I relish the thought of having to install a chargepoint at home for a few K to make filling it up practical.
I hear there's supposed to be a network of (free to Tesla owners) chargepoints 'coming in around a year' ... we'll see if that ever materialises cos if it doesn't it's a fail.
Savings per year are around 4k fuel (assuming free chargepoints), 280 tax (my XKR is X-reg so not £400), some saving on servicing for sure as there's less to maintain, presumably, like spark plugs, oil filters, etc. 'Full tank' range is the same.
The car is £72k though and the 0-emission benefit in kind runs out next year so that perk is eliminated, too, else it'd be a more plausible thing if there were 5 years left in that.
I quite fancy one but I don't think it's quite there yet (for me, anyway) except for people who can afford to go drop half a house on a car from their back pocket (or have more cunning accountants than I)
Shame. For me, leastways!

Really? They couldn't think of a name that wasn't already widely used elsewhere for their team?
Re: Sieze the opportunity
In the years I've had SKY TV and broadband and phone I've never had to call support for anything.
I think, perhaps, that's the difference that others are trying to point out. Of course I might just have got lucky... they're all paid-for services, though you get a reasonable discount for TV+Phone+Fibre(40Mbit, the extra for 80Mbit wasn't worth it imho) package.
Re: "could be the biggest thing"
I think the key lies in the 'active' lenticular...

Well I say 'eagerly'.. more like it's just expected
Re: customer information was not compromised
If it were the merkins they'd already have been incarcerated under terror laws and waterboarded for hours, awaiting the utter destruction of their lives & futures and those of their nearest and dearest.
For starters, anyway.
And what's the betting
That figure also includes the cost of
actually implementing grown-up security measures that should have been there in the first place repairing the horrific damage caused
Re: Well done
Just a shame that the IPCC scientific output is moderated by politicians before publication. (IIRC)
Re: I can just hear the GW deniers ....
Perhaps they'll get a snap of Elon Musk hollowing out volcanoes to build his flying/swimming car superfleet whilst maintaining a facade of greenwashed electro-propello-matrickery during the construction of his elite Moonraker fleet.
At least, like Atheists, AGW
deniers challengers can separate the bleeding obvious from the bleeding stupid.
That was ironic. Right?
QI portrays him as a font of all wisdom, a veritable tree of knowledge and people believe it.
Which means he needs to be corrected - especially as his track record seems to be not to give a toss and fact-check after whatever his previous drubbing was. And the one before that. And before that. And so forth.
A sign of intelligence is supposed to be learning from your mistakes. Nothing against the guy at all, he's a very entertaining fellow and quick-witted but desperately needs to know when he's frothing in a field about which he knows cock-all.
I've had a growing irrational hankering for a Model S now though the numbers don't stack up (at the moment, anyway)..
About £72k (85kW model, natch) for the car though a ~£3500 annual saving in running costs over the (current) XKR which is nice but does little to offset the rather stout purchase price. Presumably servicing would be much cheaper, too, as there's no valves/cylinders/coolant(?)/sparkplugs/oilfilters/etc to pay for or go wrong beyond four motors, brakes and aircon?
It'll have to remain a hankering for now...

I find it really helps to have people use visible gadgets like these to help me avoid the mindless arse-clowns who comprise their pitiful demographic.

Re: Other sites have statements ....
Though payment in AUD might be the spearhead... wait for USD, GBP, EUR, JPY to follow, maybe.
Can you factory reset an iThing without external hardware? e.g. Power + vol down + home from poweroff on some (all?) Android devices. I guess not otherwise this might be mentioned as a last resort recovery option.
If the 'ware prevents you switching off your phone to do that you can always take the battery out to reboot it and perform a reset combo. Oh. hang on.

I actually suspect that Apple IS Sammy's advertising model...
Re: This isn't about phones looking like each other
Except they were ordered not to mention their F700 touch phone and were banned from presenting evidence based upon it.
And as for touching a screen I'd say that the touchscreen manufacturer would have had that code first, as part of their dev/reference material provided with the specsheets and other component collateral.
Re: Any relation
Will be interesting to see what it can recognise...
Will be impressed if it knows here Come the Fleas (White Noise)
Re: I would argue the situation was even worse
I can't even be arsed to vote. Even a 'protest' vote would mean voting for the novice buffoons instead of the grandmaster buffoons and I'd rather the slightly warped novices didn't get a crack at anything to be honest.
At the end of the day it all seems to boil down to corporate backhanded cash-for-policy anyway so it's largely irrelevant who gets in to wherever.
Except Sammy upped the price of iProcessors to Apple so they probably paid Samsung's bill for them by now.
Is it even profitable to sell in the USA any more?
Makes you wonder.
Automated piracy detector?
Can't imagine they'd want something like that to help out the average consumer, after all.

Re: This not-requiring-Gold-for-streaming change ...
What, and take away a tiny reason to upgrade to XB1 ?
Re: Head screwed on better
Playstation+ is pretty good value for money, mind you... There must have been at least five big titles given away last year for the forty quid sub you pay.. stuff like Bioshock Infinite, etc and it covers both the PS3 and the PS4 at home. I binned XBOX Gold membership ages ago when I realised it was a waste of money for the most part. The '360 only ever gets turned on when my daughter plays Skyrim and I'm not even considering an XB1 at all.
Will be interesting to see if SONY get Gaikai working this summer for legacy games (and then get it working in EU)
Suggests coldness ahead. That's not gonna fit in.
