Nurse, the screens
Looks like by the time this comes out screens will be old hat and we'll be projecting images straight onto our retinas:
Let's not forget...
They also claim to have created nuclear fusion and found a unicorn lair.
Re: Not as pretty as the Blackbird, tho.
In X-Men: First Class the SR-71 not only carries passengers but is VTOL too!
I remember reading the original Your Computer article
and thinking how much I preferred the colour scheme of the mock-up to the primary colours on the final design (apart from the lemon yellow that is). Great article, thanks for the memories
The B-Ark is being built!
My recommendation for tape transfers
Get a Philips DCC deck - about £20 on eBay these days. They play cassette tapes as well as DCC, sound pretty good and have a digital output. Much better than those crappy USB gadgets.
Re: Jesus guys, let it go
How about because I'm a C# dev by trade who uses Cubase 7 to make music in the evenings, when I'm not playing Fallout NV or Bioshock Infinite.
Re: death and taxes
Yeah all those companies that paid out when they didn't have to went out of business.
That'll get the mercury rising at Sky
Re: FM vs DAB
I bloody hate DAB. We get iffy FM reception so after being bombarded with adverts on the BBC with 'D Love' going on about how great DAB is we took the plunge. It's completely useless, we get no BBC stations whatsoever or the wife's Classic FM. We get something called 'Heart' which is terrible and sounds like it's underwater half the time, and 'Gaydar' which is clear as a bell. Thanks. Fortunately the thing is also an iPod dock. So is it our fault because we live in a coalmine or in the Outer Hebrides? No, we live on the south coast, near Brighton, along with a few million other people.
Re: Does anyone know
"I'm proud to say that I have only once tasted an item on their menu. It was so bad that after one mouthful, it went into the nearest bin. Since then, I have never felt the need to visit them again and if I have anything to say about it, I never will in this life."
Blimey, talk about being on one's high horse.
Try a Big Mac, they're nice :oP
It's for kids
Re: Wrongo boyo
FutureShock999 is right of course, but transparent aluminium is also used in the viewports of the Enterprise-D so TFA was right (http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Transparent_aluminum). Thank you!
Re: Please define your acronyms!
IIRC, it's basically a backronym and they named if after Eos, the goddess of the dawn. It's not a good one is it, It's a very dull phrase and doesn't even mention the autofocus, which was the big deal when the 650 first came out. Still got mine, works perfectly!
Re: Yeah.. I'm kind of with you on this..
"I think the overheads for games is tiny anyway in comparison to the end price."
Yeah most artists and coders will happily work for free on a project for three or four years. Plenty of games, big and small, don't make their dev costs back.
Re: £29 e-reader dodgy marketing?
I did the same as you, but I just ordered one using the link at the top of the article, worked for me (cue email in 5 secs saying they're out of stock)
What problem will it solve
People had no idea what iPads would be used for when they first appeared, but seem to have found lots of uses for them.
I've got one
as my 'walking about' phone (main phone is a Galaxy Note). Phone is well made and call quality excellent. WP8 runs very smoothly and is a pleasure to use, I'd give it a try before writing it off. Only downside for me is no notification LED (and no NoLED app equivalent), notifications appear on the lock screen instead.
Re: A fart in a hurricane
Thanks! And I agree completely. I'd rather see those vast subsidies going into some of the interesting new reactor technologies I read about on The Reg.
A fart in a hurricane
It seems rather pointless us spending years agonizing over a single windmill or hydro project when China are knocking out a new power station every week. I speak as a former 'green' who frankly can see no point and has given up.
Re: Poor AMD
"Fusion is way better than anything Intel has on offer". Really? I read the reviews and it looks like a low-power processor with a built-in so-so graphics part. I went Core i7 - and an AMD graphics card. Is it better for certain markets (enterprise perhaps)? Not flaming, just curious.
I'm no fan of DSG but this seems harsh, it looks to me like they've held up their end of the deal. There will always be the odd case where some gibbon messes it up.
Re: Warming the mug/pot?
I heard years ago that warming the pot was a precaution - old earthenware teapots could sometimes shatter with the sudden heat of the boiling water. Warming them first prevents this. Perhaps it's an urban myth... anyone else heard this?
Re: zombies with keyboards
PS: BRRRAAAIINNZZ. Doh!
Patrick and Moore?
Some DS9 was great, classic ST. For me there were too many plodding Kira/Prophets/Kai Winn episodes and far too many 'hilarious' Ferengi scripts with the Grand Nagus and (argh!) Quark's mother. What nearly killed it for me though was all the 'Vic Fontaine' stuff on the holodeck. Always loved Voyager personally...feel free to call me a heretic, say my mother had a smooth forehead, etc.
Re: Windows 7
I'm sure MS will be mortified that you're going to pirate Win7 rather than Win8.
2012 may have confounded Mayan predictions of global catastrophe
Not yet it hasn't!
Nice to see 'ODFO' back, thought it had died out. More please!
Nicolas Cage in Terminator 5
A piffling sixty million? Pay the fellow, Edmund, and damn his impudence!
Re: why the hate?
Sony Centre != Sony
Re: why the hate?
Completely agree with Mike. The rootkit thing was in 2005 - get over it. My PS3 is a slim one so never had the Linux option, but the number of ppl who rant on and on about it is amazing. What percentage of PS3 owners actually ever wanted to bother loading Linux onto their console when even an ancient desktop is a better option? I got my PS3 for playing games on, which it does just fine. But now Sony have added Lovefilm so I can stream movies as well - bloody Sony, changing the features of my PS3 after I bought it!
