"Caravan Of Courage II" be more up Disney's street?
Re: Anyone else..?
"I once spilt rather a lot of coke on my logitech keyboard "
You should have got this guy to sort you out:
What, no Ericsson GH172?
These histories really do seem to miss out on some major kit.
No early ugly Ericssons
No Panasonic G series....?
Flower vase and eye-lashes option?
What, no flower vase on the dash?
And does it come with the headlight eye-lashes that many around here like to fit on the old version?
Re: It doesn't matter not how far away it is
I heard it was already full of drunk, sun-burnt, shaven headed Brit tourists....
If the SimValley RX-80 Pico V4.0 can be had for ~€18 SIM free, how come this costs so much?
Lasts more than a week on standby too.
The Lack of Commodore kit...
... in this article is appalling.
Re: The upside for Hitachi is...
"The main thing holding back renewables is battery capacity to smooth the generation/supply imbalances."
Duracell et al ain't gonna solve the problems of "renewables".
Just a little bit sad...
That the pioneer of civil nuclear power ends up having to ask Johnny Foreigner to build the next generation of of nuclear power plants.
But at least the UK will be able to see light at the end of the 10 year long tunnel that will appear around 2015....
Re: Yet more Uk Eco madness...
"Regardless of the merits of this car, you really still think that the most energy efficient way to move a car around is the 120-year old internal combustion engine?"
Try reading what I posted again.
Electric cars will be the solution. In countries that don't produce the majority of electricity from burning oil and gas.
In the mean time, more efficient small turbo-charged petrol engines are the way to go.
Not half-arsed eco-bling solutions like Toyota's Prius.
Yet more Uk Eco madness...
Plug-in cars in a country where most electricity is generated by Gas/Coal: FAIL
Hybrids: An electric car dragging a combustion engine/transmission/fuel tank around
or a conventional car lugging electric motors and a massive battery pack around: FAIL
Better idea would be to switch to small, highly tuned turbo petrol solution such as
FPT's TwinAir, if you want to be eco-minded about your personal transport.
Re: Yes, lets focus on short term cost increases...
Because "renewables" in the UK are an Eco-scam:
No amount of wind turbines and PV panels will solve the UKs looming energy crisis.
And the amount of energy expended in obtaining the resources for and then fabricating PV panels will always be more than they generate. (Assuming dirty panels, on fixed roof mounts in a northern European climate.)
Thumbs-up for the efficiency drive though.
" There is a very good reason why the vast majority of hotels use them."
The hotels whore them out to guests?
How come Range Rover...
...Managed to involve a woman in the styling process for the Evoque, and come up with something quite good, whilst this is all Fujitsu could achieve?
Wonder if iCoyote will be made available for it....?
Re: Since this is a tech site.....
Also which WiFi was she trying to connect to?
SFR, Free, Orange....?
But is Gove as bad as Jeremy Hunt...
Who believes taking pure water can cure all and any illness...?
Re: Screen protectors are stupid
Leather flip covers make phone users look like 80s throwbacks.
Look at the variety/innovation...
...and look where we've ended up:
Large touch-screen slabs with icon driven GUIs and no buttons to control volume or answer/hang-up a call.
Makes everyone look like Dom Joly or an 80s throwback.
(I waited for the Sendo-X but settled on a Panasonic X700 as my first "smart" phone.)
Playing The Long Game
This is the first part of the dolphin plan for global domination.
I, for one, welcome our new cetacean overlords....
Anoto style digital pen/forms could work.. But they won't.
It's an NHS IT scheme. I predict an overspend on stuff that will never work properly.
Who remembers the "Clean me!" keyboards costing 100s each?
Load of old Jeremy Hunt.
Shite drivers are shite?
Who'da thunk it?
Banning the use of a phone whilst driving is all well and good. But they really should ban everything else (smoking, eating, drinking, breast feeding etc) if they want to be thorough about safety.
Couldn't they come up with...
... a process to purify water using the sun's heat directly, instead of spending a fortune in energy and resources making all those solar panels....?
Fine those responsible and those in charge.
Maybe they'll start taking things seriously if they had to pay for their **** ups...
Re: It's a start
Nothing on the market to replace my 'Mini Pro .
So I'm sticking with it.
C'mon Samsung: 3.5" screen and a slide-away keyboard, please....
Who didn't know this was coming!?!
AAh The Mongolian BBQ!
A favourite student night out, back-in-the-day!
A couple of flaming Yakbites, barkeep!
... has there never been a worthy successor to the '5?
Even after all this time there is nothing that compares to it in terms of design, usability, battery life and software integration.
Re: Every time...
Every time I hear "golden dawn" mentioned I can't help thinking the Greek fascists like a bit of water sports....
None with Ketchup 'n' mustard?
Oh, the humanity!
He bought the elongated piscine from a pet shop but got home to find he'd locked himself out.
So he attempted to climb a handy ladder to get in through an upper floor window, while still holding
the bag containing said eel, and promptly fell; landing on the bag and ending up with the eel in his rectum.
All totally plausible.
Re: Well, on more "serious" note...
Close, but no cigar.
It was East Bromwich.
"Eco-Bling for tw@ts"
An upvote for that one!
The UK doesn't even have enough projected capacity to power the lights let alone a large fleet of private cars.
Especially when all the dirty old oil fired power stations start to shut down to meet the UK's eco-commitments after 2015.
These will remain tax payer subsidized toys.
"Your mother was an 'amster and your father smelt of elderberries..."
At least a couple of years inside for anyone using that kind of hurtful taunt, I'd say.
WIll OFCOM re-examine this case...
... if either of the Murdochs end up in a federal pen. over the corrupt foreign payments made by their underlings...?
Think of the children!!!
What about all those nasty "waves" !!!!?
Re: well no one got hurt?
Reminds me of:
Re: What's the IT angle?
They will be trained to play tennis which will then be shown on the PayPerView website www.blue-arsed-monkey-tennis.com
But remember, Tuesday is Soylent Green day!
Waaaay too expensive.
Especially when you can download TuneIn on most portable devices and get similar "coverage"...
Victorinox or Crumpler Bags
Both brands are up to the job although Crumpler are more photo oriented.
Recently sent a 10 year old Victorinox laptop briefcase in for repairs as the expansion zip had given up the ghost. (Even after hasty repairs effected a few years back in a hotel room.) I rarely use it these days as the backpack style is safer on the old back.
I got a call saying, sorry it was unrepairable and they'd be sending a new one instead.
Can't beat the Victorinox lifetime warranty.
Re: In slight tiny almost defence of his Homeopathy support...
No they don't.
Should be grounds for instant removal from any departmental head role, let alone DoH.
He'll hopefully be out on-his-ear once the Newscorp shite really hits the ventilator anyway.
Re: Change of vacation plans
Even EU countries require valid ID before you can get a SIM. e.g. Spain, France AND Italy.
All due to anti-terror/crime laws.
Maybe a vacation in your own country will solve any issues?
There was a good cover article on Huawei a few weeks ago:
