Is that how you get "tea and no tea" ?
Well, it makes a change the petrol company being shafted by the consumer.
Oil at 2004 price/barrel - is petrol at the pump anything close to the same parity?
It's not a dumb watch, it's just a watch, they tell the time, it's kind of their raison d'être...
For reference Bleu, my own father was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer, after a week of stomach ache, 5 days later he died, so yeah, it could easily have the cancer, or the instant detox.
Does anyone else think the Stormtrooper in that screenshot look like a recruitment ad for Anonymous ?
I presumed it was Over the t'Interweb
but.. but.. the company selling the product said they wouldn't, so it won't...
"shared the affected bank details with the major UK banks so they can take their usual actions to protect customers' accounts in the highly unlikely event that a criminal attempts to defraud them"
Well, the people who rang Dido up *said* they were calling from the bank, with a thick indian accent.
It's a smegging garbage pod!
I was slightly miffed about the "dude" bit, but I coped, what bugs me in a time travel program is paradoxes, there are many in that episode, but I'll just give you two from the last 30 seconds.
1. Getting to Skaro to potentially killed Davros again: erm, his T.A.R.D.I.S. was just blown up.
2: Killing Davros with a Dalek weapon: hello.. WHAT weapon when Davros is dead?
No it's not, it's just as easy to find as it is in Windows 8 - Win-X
Right-Click File Explorer on Start Menu, click Manage (as per My Computer in previous versions)
or (the easiest yet)
Click Start button, type 'DEVICE' press ENTER
It's from an American company, it's guaranteed to be an Oxbridge stiff upper lip whilst stroking a black cat, and saying "No Mr Bond, I expect you to die!"
What, you couldn't determine that the word IN was accidentally transposed with IS instead?
"It’s simply not correct to say that customers are not informed, it’s explained in the contract people sign."
Beware of the leopard!
It's all part of the vision™.
"292 exabytes (292 x 1018 bytes)" - guessing someone forgot the superscript option or the ^...
Cut and paste is a bitch.
Nope, can't say I've ever heard anyone say that, the standard line for getting Apple gear is "it just works".

Been playing it on PC for last few days, still only about 20% through the campaign, and for a change, I'm a bit nervous while playing it, especially in night-mode (playing at night too), trying to avoid the patrol minions, it's a "little" bit Far-Cry'ish with all "tower climbing", but it's not that as big a component as in Far Cry or Assassins Creed thankfully.
Well worth playing if you turn off motion blur, which is a bit overkill for my liking, and needs tweaking imo.

Good ol' Manic Miner !!!
We'd better damned well get Eugene Victor Tooms too!
Yes, I'm having a much better experience, playing about 6-7 hours daily since release, there have only been 2 hours on NYD when there have been any issues, lost about 300,000 credits, worked find later on.
Well, having it so it doesn't look quite so barren, as per how it is now at 4K: http://i.imgur.com/lokr8fX.png
Even if it uses just 20% more white space, at whatever given resolution is used, would be a good start.
And still no concept that there are people reading your site with 4K monitors - the white gaps down each side are now bigger than the bloody content I'm trying to read FFS.
"In addition, "Redesign v2" is coming in 2015 and is likely to involve an agency that can guide us through a more rigorous ground-up redesign"
You might want to link the commentards to beta.theregister.co.uk when you're doing that, to save all this gnashing of teeth - let your users be your QC department.
"Maybe I'm just too old :("
Yep, nostalgia ain't how it used to be.
"specifically the period of low sunspot activity between approximately 1645 and 1715"
Must have been a blinder to have come up with a name for half an hour.
To browse porn, without it ever hitting your history or IP address and get round corporate and school firewalls ?
Guess that just means they're moving Steve's corpse?
Also when they turn the lights off at the Mesa plant, will that make it Black Mesa ?
Close, but no cigar:
"Take wallet out of pocket and touch it on reader."
My wallet contains 3 credit cards, and a debit card, all of which have PaybyBonk - which one does it choose?
"The only difference is it means Apple know exactly what you have been buying "
"6:51 p.m. : Apple doesn’t know what you bought, where you bought it, or how much you paid for it."
Well, he decided to go out on the same day as my Gran, so perhaps she can give him slap while they're stood in line waiting for St Peter, for committing suicide.
Decent kit, love 'em.
Or the lesser spotted Win+X menu.
It's the first thing I miss when handling previous edition PCs.
Cor Chief !
From SOCCER to FOOTBALL ?
Trust me, you wouldn't want to see me in Speedo's medium or smaller...
Does it turn chocolate bars and children into smaller versions of themselves too ?
Well, I've had to go and look, been using Canary for months, and yes, you're right it's black, and the rest of the URL is grey, but if you hadn't told me it was the case I'd never have noticed, so obvious fail on the UI there...
Looking at the photo here: http://goo.gl/Yn9Inq
It does indeed have an ethernet port.
Hate the shape of the remote though, what's wrong with flat backed remotes?
I think we'll be lucky if it's not Windows 9 exclusive for the first 12 months or so.
Taking the 1p and 2p out of circulation, get's rid of the offensive 99p rubbish, and gets rid of coins nobody (imo) wants anyway, other than something to throw in the 4.5L Bells Whisky bottles.
Something twits (or is that twats?) do.
Would that be of Tea or No Tea ?
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.
