Perhaps the American roto-loo can't handle the extra vodka load put upon it by the Russians. maybe why it's been sent back for a redesign.
I wish they would just...
...launch it into the toilet, and free Nokia to put something decent on their hardware.
Releasing dodgy CDMA handsets initially, then giving up on the technology completely didn't help them much either.
Now only if they would drop dead-horse symbian. Have they heard of this android thing?
Or sell them through Ikea, the only other exposure Americans have to scandinavian design.
The fake perp in the video was trying so hard to look like he was subdued.
Please, stop with the names
You're starting to make "Vista" sound good
Gee, no kidding
I thought the fact that, you know, nobody survived was evidence enough.
Smart VMers switched to VMware Fusion a long time ago.
My daily supply of penis pill and luxury watch emails has effectively stopped. Could it have really been that simple? How long before Ronald McColo finds someplace else to set up shop?
I don't get it
It's downloading fine for me...
Fail and Reg
I'm not really sure what you're trying to tell us. Did you forget what you were ranting about? Were you expecting point-and-click coding or something?
chop off those stupid buttons and give up on the hard keyboard. It has a touchscreen! use it!
They still don't get it
These americans have to get over the idea of fat SUVs. Also, hydrogen is dead.
without itunes this is going nowhere
mysterious signals from outer space
I've never thought of it like that before.
Vista kills games
Or at least their performance. And it won't get many more gamers until there's a compelling reason for DX 10.
11 options sounds about right
We are talking about American phones, ones up until about a year ago were only expected to handle voice.
Don't forget cloud computing...
The true cross-platform app of the future.
Besides, hasn't the world moved on to virtualisation? It sucked 15 years ago, but now modern computers can finally do a good job of it. The only real users of Wine 1.0 may end up being the 1,076 penguinistas who made it.
it goes to fail
Have they figured out how to keep the stuff from leaking out after a couple days? Of course that's still on top of the huge losses in manufacturing and transportation.
he looks pissed
"why the F%#K did you build me?"
ROTM alert level orange: odour unit has airborne biological weapon potential.
Rock Solid, Heart Touching
So it's just an Eee minus the beach babe? Was she really that expensive?
Paris, because she's all that and more.
If they didn't attack supposed terror states then there wouldn't be such a need for new war gear. See, you have to spend some in order to be able to, uhh, spend some more.
But really, I think satellites can completely eliminate any need for whateversonic warbirds. We already use them for spying, and no doubt they're already working on dropping bombs, now all that's needed is a space troop carrier. Keep a small platoon up there in capsules ready to be dropped at a moments notice to sniff out osama's droppings (or whatever is taking them so long.) You could keep them in a sleep statis state or even cryogenically frozen and let the reentry thaw them out.
Bring it on
because I'm tired of this virtual monopoly we have now
The real world, the one outside Cali, doesn't give two shits what you think is illegal.
Come on guys, think bigger
Hack the freakin lander if you want to show true skillz. Use the arm to carve your tag in the martian soil.
"No one lives in Nevada. So, you don't have locals pulling on the bandwidth."
Are they forgetting something? Aren't these so called "locals", better known as customers, the ones these data centres are meant to serve? Doesn't it make more sense to keep them nearest to your customers?
But sure, it's a great place for the US military to keep their flying saucer schematics.
I have a problem with Bale...
He'll always be Patrick Bateman to me.
Surely the mirror was accidental
Paris because she knows a good crotch shot when she sees one.
and the ruination of film continues
No doubt they'll have another version of motionflow to further kill the look of 24p films.
These science bozos just out of nowhere proclaim aliens exist with no evidence or thoughts as to why? Was it the space travel that made them bonkers or those new-car gasses coming out of Kibo?
Re: Not worth going to court over ...
You're obviously not a lawyer.
reminds me of another whitehouse email scheme...
where staffers were told to use their Republican party email system rather than the .gov to avoid the archiving, public disclosure, etc.
Cogeco certainly does
They throttled my bittorrent when I was a subscriber.
Must be a slow day over at Slashdot...
What the kernel developer clowns in these comments fail to grasp is just how a computer is used by the other 99% of the human race. If it doesn't "just work" then it's rubbish. As for the argument that BSD is easier to use than Linux, you forget that even Linux has no real useability in the first place. Sure it installs over vista with a few clicks but what after that? Need to install an app, but oh first you need to search the repository for some library with one billion dependencies and then what do you mean I can't just drag and drop...
Steve Jobs as God because Macs are about as close as things can get to "just working"
From what I've read in these pages, Wikipedia is the repository of all evil 2.0. Now you're using its ridiculous conflict of interest policies for your own good?
I get it, any port in a Phorm.
Mine's the rain slicker.
Now picture it...
falling in flames on its way to the ocean. I can't believe they're still making throw-away spacecraft. That stupid ISS is going to turn out to be an even bigger money pit than the shuttles.
Maybe you should ask Teksavvy...
how they've managed to run a discount ISP that caters to high-traffic users for the past ten years. They've been consistently at least $10 below the competition, even while paying what I'm sure is an inflated fee to use Bell's network.
I just switched to teksavvy, to get away from the throttles and caps on the local cable provider, and now this happens.
Paris because only she can save me now
RE: For what??
The PS3 can be a full media centre. You can keep copies of all your xvid and HD videos on there. game updates and patches can be hundreds of megs each. Downloadable game demos run an average of a gig apiece.
MS probably doesn't want to put costly BD-ROMS in the 360 just for movies, just like they didn't with HD-DVD. Their money is really in the movie download business. They'd do it if the games could use the capacity but that would have to be a whole new console. But then they think the bandwidth fairy is going to bless us with the ability to download all our games.
remember Windows ME?
It too was the last stab at dolling up an overworked OS, and was replaced as soon as it was released.
But it's "all the other crap" that makes the PS3 what it is. It's all software anyway and most of the good extra features have been added after launch, with more to come for sure.
For a console + bluray + media-centre-in-the-making it really isn't such a bad deal.
Dual core as base for Mac Pro? They don't sell dual cores anymore!
Seriously, who uses PiP anyway? Stupid marketing gimmicks aside, how is it at all practical for to watch something in the corner of the screen with no audio.
But when can I slap one on my CPU...
And have it power my desk lamp or something
Good to hear the word getting out
that hydrogen is shite. We could have batteries capable of long range travel in the time it takes to get these fuel cell bastards on the road, but the oil jerks would have none of that. A Tesla with GM's R&D would be on the road by now.
Unless it has Nokia or Motorola stamped on the side...
It won't do any better than linux on the desktop
because Steve said so
the conventional iPod's days are numbered
of pots and kettles
"It is highly political," said Fukui
As if there aren't any big lobbies behind hydrogen (hello oil and gas...) The oil giants are going to need something to replace their refineries, distribution networks, and filling stations with in the coming years and hydrogen fits the bill perfectly. Assuming the home filling station is nonsense - and it is from a renewable power source standpoint - these hydrogen cars will depend on the status quo of the stuff trucked in from large manufacturing facilities.
The prospect of future of personal transport bypassing their infrastructure completely is not going over well, I presume, and their hydrogen PR is in full assault mode. I fear it's starting to work, too.
What, no RotM?
Come on Reg, a huge killbot just broke free of its restraints and mowed down its fleshy overlords. This, along with the misguided suicide deathdrone, deserves further investigation.
From the report...
"He then went back to the MFW to open up another program, which showed him what processes were running on PPO-1 so that he could record this information."
If all else fails, randomly stab the End Process button in Task Manager
