The current image on E Onlines article about Watkins isn't helping...
Still remember the trouble I had jumping between the 4 burning pillars with one offset...
So a machine intelligence is overly interested in paper shredders?
What do you call a scaled up paper shredder, big enough for people?
A dev team I was in was shit canned the day after the celebratory 'thanks for the hard work delivering drinks'.
The writing was on the wall for months prior as they were outsourcing more and more, what was amusing was the outsourcing company began to revert to standard rates, along with recouping the loss leader, once the dev team was out of the way.
> is over 150Gb, where on earth do I put that?
Without paying over the odds my solution was to burn a bluray with the a full backup, kept in the office. incrementals are then dropboxed until the free space is used then the process begins again.
The risk of losing home & office the same night is something I can live with.
Re: Is this one of Apple’s marketing errors.
I think you're looking at the 16gb 5s price,
I'm assuming a quick browse means the headline "from £x" price at the top of each phone's pages?
It just works...
Who to kill?
If two people jump out on both sides of the roads simultaneously (assuming no room to drive between) who does it squish?
If a person jumps out in front, and a moment later a second jumps out onto the other lane, will it divert back to the first squishee or stay locked on the second?
Re: Payday loan companies......
"who are no better than backstreet loan sharks"
I'd much prefer to owe Wonga et al money than some backstreet loan sharks if that were my only two choices in desperate circumstances.
Re: EU Bananas Myth
Not 100% sure what you're getting at there.
Re: Devils Advocaat (with ice)
"Or they could prevent you from watching the film at all on the grounds that it would be making an unauthorised copy in your memory."
They could make you watch a watermark prior to watching the film, and once you've seen it they erase memories back to the watermark.
I saw a film about that once, but it's from an era Ben Affleck tries to forget.
Re: Designed for online?
I'm wondering if R* can here the people complaining about GTA involving cars from on top of their big pile of money?
Can it print an Inanimate Carbon Rod?
I'm not saying anythings wrong with the 3g/s but it's a useful comparison.
If it helps maybe replace the sentence with:
"... far better than I expected for a plastic phone, it feels better than something that feels worse."
Saw a 5c over the weekend and was mildly impressed with the build quality, far better than I expected for a plastic phone, I had expected something like the 3g/s.
Not my cup of tea but when you see the amount of people who put chunky plastic "protectors" around their phone I can see where there is a market.
Re: all-in-one iMac
"All-in-one used to mean including a DVD/CD ROM drive."
Don't forget floppy discs or maybe cassette players.
Re: Half-assed implementation.
I said it would ruin the black market value as it will make it trickier to wipe, not impossible.
And going by some of the stories around stolen phones my guess is the existence of airplane mode is unknown to them.
Re: Half-assed implementation.
You can disable both Siri and Control panel whilst locked.
But having to keep a phone in airplane mode will ruin the black market value.
Re: "everyone knows that 64 bits is better than 32 bits, probably twice as good!"
Or if you were really flash you got a 32bit Archimedes....
Wheres the Ed Milliband icon?
As a user of runkeeper, I was marginally interested (as an alternative to garmin) until I found out you'll still need the Note in your pocket for it to track your location.
Unless they're wanting to shift the £34 million loss to £3.4 billion loss they'd better seek better advice than what Labour can offer going by their track record.
Re: "mobile market share" matters, "smartphone market share" does NOT
I wouldn't compare Samsung to ford more Trabant, they're not the best build quality and have poor menu logic, reminds me of Amstrad, cheap and cheerful.
Just to clarify this is not a pro-apple or anti-android post, just a "Samsung, they're a bit crap aren't they?" post
Re: Real risks are long term
"Quadrilla and independent economists have shown that fracking will not reduce gas prices"
Maybe if they reduced the "Politicians and their friends pension & investment fund" everybody has to pay with energy bill "green" surcharge the general public will get cheaper bills and in the worst cases afford to heat their homes in the winters.
I think they've got it backwards, Tablets are supposed to get smaller whilst phones are supposed to get larger.
Mines the one with 4" iPad & 13" iPhone
The humble teapot, from CGI tool to fascist via sneaky ebay porn; what a life you've led.
So why did he vote for all the tax laws during Labours government that companies are using?
Did he not understand them or just obeying party orders?
Re: parlimentary grilling
After posting yesterday I had a shufty, it appears she voted in favour of the tax changes she didn't want.
But then she's loyal to the party rather than constituent so she'd vote anyway she's told without a first thought.
Re: parlimentary grilling
Hodges answer on the C4 news about her assets being held in trust was funny and showed she understood tax avoidance perfectly.
She managed to make herself look even stupider by pretending not to understand that there is no benefit gained with inheritance avoidance until the person is dead.
It would be interesting to see how shes voted for the various tax changes?
I bet they won't save a few quid, they'll just jack the prices up on the ones not willing to be tracked and call that non-increase a saving.
A net connection will also help in his other time killing diversion.
He'll be red raw at the end of 60 days...
Wondering what would happen if you rocked up at the genius bar with one?
Re: Another PR stunt by MPs
Tax shouldn't come down to Morals, they're pretty abstract and most people disagree without even getting close to the realms of the state and Godwinism.
"But what is legal and what is right aren't always the same things."
Yep, one is subjective and the other isn't.
Invoking the BNP, I'm guessing you feel your argument is a little weak and hope that some emotional rhetoric reinforces it.
Re: Who voted these buffoons in?
Most of the elected are drawn from party lists and the general public, usually, don't get a say in the ordering of those lists.
The system is rigged so party politicians always win.
Can't see them dropping the old style contract, I know a fair few people who don't realise their monthly bill is half loan repayment / half service and will often stay in the same contract even after the loan's repaid waiting for the next iDroidy thing to come out rather than switch to sim only asap.
Re: Is it me?
Might be because I've seen a few shops in my time.
Re: Is it me?
You need to have a look at the pixels.
Gave up attempting to use The Cloud anywhere, you spend more time going through their login process then any benefit gained.
For example, I arrive at my main line station and want to check the tube status, which should only take a few seconds. But if I'd connected to any Cloud service it would have tried and failed to connect until I'd gone through the login process.
Especially when theres two or more competing cloud services next to each other.
What a stupid, stupid idea.
Companies don't pay vat they also don't pay corporation tax (even when they don't jump through hoops to avoid it)
The only person who pays corporation tax (for the entire chain) is the end customer (or the staff at the company in the chain which then effects how much they buy).
Whether it'll be possible to scrap corporation tax and for all companies in the chain to adjust their prices 'fairly' probably wouldn't happen. But then if a company in the supply chain starts gouging it's customers then a competitor could jump in.
So when are we getting cryo-arithmetic engines?
PITA trying to use the cloud, it never seems to remember your details so gave up trying to use the "free" wifi at my main line station as it's slower to have to log in every passing visit than it is to use 3g to check service status and other crap that for some reason we used to be able to live without whilst traveling...
