Was good seeing things we take for granted in today's machines being touted as new and wonderful, hurt not seeing Woz's name in the Macintosh roll-call part of the video though.
What is wrong with the abacus ?
What is wrong with walking ?
What is wrong with bows and arrows ?
What is wrong with 640K ?
I've had various TomTom devices, currently on the not so wonderful GO Live 1000, but I wouldn't be without it, like my automatic transmission in the car, it takes the effort out of a mundane task, something not difficult, but something we don't need to think about, and can just get on with it.
Re: That's not going to happen
The planet is only that far out due to a miscue in a game of Planet Pool, during a "White Hole" incident.
'grow the fuck up'...
Pot... meet kettle..
380Z came much later
Commodore Pet for the win !
Re: Battery life
Battery life on my iPad Air is pretty damned good actually, wish I could say the same for my iPhone 5 though.
Well, he definitely made an impact in his particular field.
Re: I suppose...
Well, I upgraded both mine and my FD's iPad 2 to 64gb Air's mine with cellular, his without, but it was purely down to being because he wanted one, and asked me to get it for him, whereupon he then said "Oh and I suppose you'll want one too ?" - well, it would have been rude not to. :)
Multiple underground vaults
In other words, their mothers' basement?
I wonder if HTC will replace it for him?
Came for the dickhead comment
... wasn't disappointed. \o/
Just wondering why you need to refer to them as the "Apple-assembling firm", when
A) they were making Sony PS/4's and
B) they manufacture for at least::
Apple Inc.,ASRock, Asus, Barnes & Noble, Cisco, Dell, EVGA Corporation, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, IBM, Lenovo, Logitech, Microsoft, MSI, Motorola, Netgear, Nintendo, Nokia, Panasonic ,Philips ,Samsung ,Sharp, Sony, Toshiba, Vizio as far as I can see..
Is Apple bashing THAT big a money-click earner ?
Re: Equally tiresome...
All right, but apart from that, what have
the Romans Apple ever done for us ?
Hmm, what a coincidence, just finished posting in the Huawei thread stating I'd just put their kit in, and it's Extreme network gear it's replaced, never see ANYTHING about Extreme, and this pops up today.. Spooky..
/dons tin foil hat.
/breathes sigh of relief.
Just put half a dozen S5710 10GB switches in the office here this week, nice pieces of kit to be honest.
Still have two accounts with BE
The only reason I've not changed is where the two accounts are, neither have access to fibre yet, so there's little point moving away, but it'll be a cold day in hell when I switch to Sky's telecom service, and as soon as fibre is available... Sayonara Rupe.
Re: XBox CONSOLE FROM HELL
Obviously the answer is for the "trollololols", but I'll ask anyway...
Given your obvious disdain for anything Microsoft, why do you read any of their propaganda and feel the need to denigrate it, when I think everyone is aware of what you're going to think of it anyway ?
Re: Bunch of nancies
Wow, I've just been back and read your previous posts, you REALLY are a Microsoft shill aren't you...
Either that, or you're as blinkered as Eadon is.
Re: More speculation
Let me guess, your surname is Rosoft...
I use Windows 8 with Start8, both in the office and at home, and genuinely like it, BECAUSE it's how I want it, not how some marketing droid who wants us to keep our noses in the Windows App Store trough wants me to use my computer.
It's hardly FUD when it is being shown by someone WITH the product, especially given the amount of negative feedback the original Windows 8 beta users gave TIFKAM, yet to see it still rammed down their throat come release time.
Re: Google on IE10
I have a shortcut saved for when it decides Google UK doesn't want to show up in the gallery.
C-TIP & CERTS
I'm not sure, but I think it needs more acronyms.
Re: Anyone else reminded of
Everyone needs a bosom for a pillow ?
Re: Want to "save the chilllllldddddrrren"?
" than were killed or injured by guns fired by pre-teens in the last year "
What has pre-teens got to do with it, other than allowing a lower number than the tornado killed ?
Re: I wonder if the bacteria in them holes ever thinks.....
I thought it was "ugly bags of mostly water".
Re: Bucked the trend
Yes, it's actually quite addictive, it's had about 4 hours off me tonight, so yeah, it's enjoyable, nice seeing the little history lessons going on with the hardware releases, as time goes by.
£6.83 well spent.
Bucked the trend
.. and bought a copy, because well, everyone needs a little extra beer money from time to time, and I thought the piracy hack-job was funny.
AdBlock for DVD and BluRay.
Good news day.
Anything that makes going into space a positive thing is imo a "good thing", that coupled with a 5 second sound-bite on the radio news as I woke up of a girl born with HIV seemingly cured with standard medication, makes this a "good news day".
Let's hope it stays that way.
Re: Linux is a strong solution
So would that make it a Booty Call ?
Upvote for Marvin
Glad to see I wasn't wrong in my guess, when I went to look.. \o/
Re: iPad3 ... works
Only issue reported so far, other than the Cydia servers getting DDOS'd by everyone who's just JB'd their phone, wanting to get their favourite hack-de-jour, is the weather app isn't working, though they're aware of it, and were working on it they said.
I'm a iPhone and iPad owner, and am not an AC, but neither do I feel the need to ridicule someone else for what choice of phone / tablet they own either, so I guess that makes me a rarity around these parts then?
The general rumblings are that it'll get BB10 tomorrow, I like the feel of my PB, but I still prefer my iPad 2.
Re: The song he introduced just makes everything worse
One finger, one thumb, keep moving. :)
His only realy crime
I think you'll find that handing out classified documents to people not legally allowed to have access to is kinda up there with it...
Re: So they have negative Kinetic Energy?
No, they have finally produced LUDICROUS SPEED.
Re: Ideal tourist destination
Sounds like someone with a Napoleon complex.
This site has ads ?
I remember building a Cyrix M1 PC for someone, was their so-called 586 chip, was like excrement off a digging implement at the time.
Why it took so long
Is because of Sepp Blatter and his crony Michel Platini.
Re: Yet another government at Apple's beck and call
Or, how about, they were helping perpetrate a crime, and are being punished for it, what's so wrong with that?

Re: Oh no...
My comments won't do it justice, so I'll stick with
"What they ^^ said".
Well done lad, was scary watching during those check-lists.
Silly question time..
Why is the Games section in RegHardware and not Software ?
Unfortunately, people consider free speech to mean they can say whatever offensive and insensitive things they like on the Internet and it be OK.
With apologies to DA
"But Mr User, the instructions to enable DNT have been available in your web browser for the last nine months."
"Oh yes, well as soon as I heard I went straight into settings to find it, yesterday afternoon. You hadn't exactly gone out of your way to call attention to them, had you? I mean, like actually telling anybody or anything."
"But the ability to opt-out was there ..."
"Was there? I eventually had to go down to the advanced settings to find them."
"That's the best place for it."
"With a browser extension."
"Ah, well the security had probably been enabled."
"So had the CSS to display it in white on white."
"But look, you found the notice didn't you?"
"Yes," said the user, "yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked menu stuck in a config file with a page displaying saying 'Here be dragons'."
