I was expecting Steve!
"The problem isn't technology, it's people."
Exactly! That's one of our unofficial mottoes here at Cyberdyne Systems.
And here at Cybus Industries we have already fixed that problem.
Sorry, I upvoted that because it amused me. If it helps I could downvote a few of your past posts.
Sometimes you just have to go with the elegance of French.
would have been so much better if it had been about Walt's lust for an iThing instead of a morally dubious but touching concern for his family. In fact, I'm not convinced we aren't looking at a badly translated review of the Chinese remake.
"Surely that's already covered under the common law."
You've never been on the internet, then.
last time I was killed by a distracted driver.
Even "rabid libertarians" understand the need for laws against potentially lethal activities.
Patience. They still have to finish the secret submarine base under Rockall.
Why do you think LOHAN been taking so long.
is a bonus!
Always buy one from each party just to be sure.
"does anyone say 'upgrade' anymore?"
I do. 'Refresh' sounds like something involving lemon scented napkins.
A horribly pretentious name but since it's now been appropriated to describe schoolchildren gluing pieces of macaroni onto paper I doubt it'll last long.
A test is only a failure if you don't get the data.
North Pole! Northern Hemisphere Chauvinist. South Pole's better. There's penguins and you'll have somewhere to stand when the ice melts.
No, but if you put your hard drive between a pair of old speaker magnets it will compress the bits thus increasing capacity. Note: don't do this with SSDs - it just causes the chips to leak bits which can get very messy quickly.
If NASA ever decides to revive the space shuttle.
For cars, probably not so much.
but Musk has real vision. Even when the project is a bit out there like the hyperloop it's not mere dick measuring. (And if Branson has any aspiration to be the British Musk he'd be better off funding SABRE.)
If your video is about the subject of many people's phobias you would do well to check that the work experience kid hasn't slapped on some inappropriately ominous background music.
Bring on the Scoville scale.
Write Once Read Seldom if Ever. Just what Facebook needs.
Probably won't catch on, though.
Equally there have been (US) cases where they have been allowed. Since Google presumably have clean hands in the matter I'd say there chances are good.
The Martian syrup mines are indeed organic in origin but no life could possibly survive that concentration of sugar.
of people who I am convinced were conceived in some sort of two girls one cup scenario. I'd post it here but almost every one of them has a larger legal budget than I do.
I just put my wifi router on the ro
Lego + magnets = pure win.
analyse the ink to determine the true history of squid.
The cars will indeed refuel themselves. They'll be electric and if your Roomba can do it so can a robot car. They won't repair themselves but if your taxi driver repairs their car you probably should be looking for another taxi driver. (Why would a qualified mechanic be driving a taxi?) That just leaves the cleaning. A few low paid workers in a shed replacing hundreds of drivers is not exactly a massive financial burden. The first company to market with robot taxis will make a killing and one of the first corpses will be Uber.
Google gives 658 thousand hits for 'confab' as opposed to 46 thousand for your preferred version so I think El Reg gets away with it. Or are you suggesting the CCC guys are overweight in which case shame on you for propagating stereotypes.
I'm Wayne. This is mine.
Wayne was a popular hominid name, wasn't it?
I keep my whisky cool by drinking it from a USB cooler mug.
I was just about to say something along those lines. The best way to think about quantum computers is as immensely powerful hardware simulations rather than as the universal logical machines we now think of when we talk about computers.
It's really because they come with gold-plated plugs and Google doesn't want you stealing them.
If you have a look at the animation linked above you'll see it lands by parachute like just about every re-entry vehicle before it. The difference here is that re-entry is done forwards not backwards* and the flaps provide some degree of control at high speed unlike in a capsule design where at best you have limited controlled by shifting the centre of mass. I'm speculating here, but I suspect more control in re-entry would yield a fuel saving since you wouldn't have to pre-align your orbit with the landing zone plus it would give you more freedom in an emergency.
*Yes, I know, feel free to make your own joke.
you're a bigger bullshit artist than Zizek? Some things just aren't believable (and I believe everything Steve Bong writes).
I suspect it's more like compensation for having to deal with cranks.
There's this couple called Bubba and Jay-lynne who would quite like to meet you.
They just have to move them from the factory to the warehouse conveniently located next door. "Designed in
California Finland" made in China is how it works, isn't it.
unless they have a Scottish accent.
but given that these are "vintage" phones let down by the lack of dates.
wasn't the only one to bounce on delivery.
Depends on what's written on the canvas.
Seriously Moffat, when you're reduced to stealing plot ideas from Ed Wood it's time to go.
Yep, for an authentic Aussie feel he should have gone with "Sinny".
when someone complained that I never labelled the discs I sent them. Of course the discs they sent me were all labelled "disc for Francis" which was much better.
Since "monetisation" as it's now used doesn't mean "to make money" but to "find a way of making money from something" you could argue that i's just a metaphorical use of your preferred meaning. Short of setting up a government department to enforce poetic licences you can't stop people using metaphor.
Steve Ballmer's new job is with Arianspace.
