otherwise you have to do orbital insertion which is an even more "massive waste of weight".
All the resources
of the US military at their disposal and they still use a string for test-firings, Mythbusters style.
Having read "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex" I think I'll pass on that thanks.
And the iOS messaging app
is just tacky.
for <some> value of style.
Yes, it's a generational thing
in the sense that we're several generations removed from the Victorian era and have realised that we can openly acknowledge that we are sexual beings and even (gasp) discuss our sexuality with others.
I miss Sarah.
If airliners and bikes are made of the same materials
does that mean we'll see Airbus investing in bamboo plantations in the near future?
"fine-tuning neck articulation". Nonsense!
They just can't get the eyes to glow the appropriate evil shade of red.
Code for "realising you don't have to have your clitoris chopped off" (among other things).
But, as a Queenslander, welcome to the state. I hope you see some of it that isn't the Gold Coast. Cavill Avenue on any given night isn't exactly representative <shudder>.
Solar-furnace powered steampunk racing car
I think el Reg might be on to something there.
You have all failed me! Prepare to
get another well-paid job.
how does that workwith lesbian porn?
You can never be sure who came first.
Chuck Norris can't time travel
He just kicks the Earth into the future.
The post is required, and must contain letters.
Save your breath
That sort of horror story only works on an audience which is ignorant on the subject which we here are not.
BTW, you do know that the stories at Not Always Right are ,shall we say, not always true.
Where can I complain
about the hideous image you've just inserted into my head?
Would it be infringment
if I wore just one rubber glove?
they mean Simplified Chinese as in the modification of the traditional Chinese writing system developed for use in the PRC. (That last bit being, I suspect, significant).
every gaming site have a "Signs you've been playing to much X" thread?
they gave up on Crysis comparability when they decided to go for a tablet form factor.
I'm also sure that the Earth would recover from humans breaking the climate - after it eliminated the cause that is.
everything that goes into space automatically becomes radioactive and as a bonus if it's living it acquires super-powers.
"If the sun isn't overhead, I should probably be sleeping."
You just lost your geek licence.
Once you have the technology
there's nothing stopping you putting the power station in orbit (theoretically).
On the other hand
I like the fact that you're not forced to buy two when you only need one.
Or just use a sacrificial camera glued to the top plate. It's not like decent quality webcams are expensive these days.
If you really believe that surgery is a requirement you need to to some research on what I believe are correctly described here as specialist websites.
Executive summary: gender is about a lot more than whether you have a vagina or penis or what clothes you choose to wear.
it:'s not like we didn't already know physics simulations.work well on massively parallel co-processors.
It's a Transformer but without the convenience of something that actually transforms.
You might be right
about the Powermat. If so that means it isn't doing induction charging right. The touchstone on the other hand is induction charging done right. It answers all four of your points.
1. It needs a PSU ,yes. but what charger doesn't and this one's the size of a C cell.
2. It's slightly less portable but there's nothing stopping you taking just the plugpack and USB cable.
3. It takes up less desk space than the phone itself.
4. The plugpack plugs into the mains socket. The USB cable connects it to the charging stand. No mains cable needed.
You can call me lazy but tracking down the end of a USB cable (especially when the whole thing has decided to disappear behind the table) is a daily ritual I can do without. Plus when my phone is sitting on the charger it turns into a very nice bedside clock.
Yes, I'm enthusiastic about the technology. But since it's turned keeping my phone charged from one of those constant annoyances of modern life to something I just don't think about, I think I have good reason to be.
On the other hand
while I have no time for homophobes I don't think I could be bothered to mention www.briansouter.com.14feb-youth.com.
To paraphrase Star Trek IV
How do you know they haven't just invented them.
Flash in a pan - hardly
She's around 30, been a model for over half her life and been Australia's best known model for maybe half that. The thing is - she's a professional - she doesn't do phone slinging tantrums or coke-fueled binges which is probably why you've never heard of her. And why El Reg will never name a special project after her. At least I hope not.
they didn't need the glow-in-the-dark gene for 'tracking' - they were just after the free publicity.
Defacing a web site
is no more terrorism than teaching children that they'll burn in hell if they think "bad" thoughts.
Oh wait. I think I'll need to adjust my analogy.
I've said it before
But obviously someone who has just piloted a spacecraft across 300000 km of space and put it down safely at the designated landing site wouldn't have the technical ability to take an in-focus and properly-framed photograph.
Where's Harold Holt?
I smell FUD
Anyone claiming to be able to make quantitative predictions about technology 20 years into the future is talking through their arse.
As I understand it
that the problem with quantum computers - you get the right answer(s) along with the all the wrong ones, hence the need for a secondary non-quantum computer to sort it all out.
This will be a great idea
once they find a flexible screen to put on it.
Only if you're turning Japanese
Mine's the one with the early eighties compilation CD in the pocket.
"unmanned ocean-going robots"
Wouldn't a "manned" robot be a sexbot?
is a colour Palm Pilot. We're just arguing about size.
Everyone else forgets about Windows Mobile as well.
Bright Sunshine will be no problem
I'm sure they'll come with a large black blanket like a nineteenth century view camera.
most buyers won't pay the equivalent of $600.
Maybe they could try $99 in six month's time.
I'm tired of these slabs
Wake me up when someone makes a PADD.
