Knew somebody who had been diligently creating a dated copy of "shortcut to my documents" for some time in a year\month\day folder structure...
That Cray picture disappoints me; where's the natty mix of raw computing power and 70's era futuristic furniture gone?
"Note that the phone should be no deeper than 1.5 meters, in your pocket"
Hopefully will see the rebirth of pushing people into a pool type comedy.
Or as slave labour?
Just wondering what was used to resize the main picture, yellow car in the pond, looks to me like maybe a spoon and hammer?
I'm thinking of refreshing my old Air and this is currently ticking the boxes. Originally I thought uh-oh zero / one connector isn't enough but then I've had a think and I can't remember when I last plugged something into my laptop other than when I'm on holiday and I wanted to take a better look at the pictures I've taken. So that's one adapter for use 2 or 3 times a year and the better screen will do a better job for previewing...
Once they're in the shops I'll take a better look.
Is GoT5 going to be dumped Netflix binge style?
Always felt that most "alien conspiracy" episodes ended with spaceships flying around behind Scully and her refusing to turn around.
"I think the bean counters are a little overjoyed that this fiasco has transformed a flop into box"
Looking at Bom, a Seth Rogen film usually has a better rate of return than the ~$14m loss.
Somehow reminds me of the last Elite release...
Working in retail at the time there were a few boxes of patch discs shipped to the stores to give to customers.
I'm getting too time poor for the investment in a social gaming experience, no matter how good something looks initially.
"I've inherited a rather rare omega wristwatch and a WW1 era pocket watch from my late grandfather. Both are shit, but goddammit they look good."
I also inherited a rare wristwatch first purchased by my great grand father the day he went to War, after the war he took it off and kept it in a coffee can until his son, my grand father, was called into service during the Second World War...
Having no mobile signal at your house is your problem; You can probably pay for a mobile booster box to enable you to get the benefits of scheduled brownouts to make up for the lack of investment in generation.
"If the device can't connect at regular intervals it'll regulate the power by default... "
Or so I was informed when I mentioned the Faraday like properties of my porch.
..I'd use a 12" (+) iPhone but I'm after a <3" iPad
Hopefully they'll set it in wizards school, with maybe some vampires / teen peril.
"And does that get you out of the contract?"
If you sign up for a contract theres no technical solution that can fix that, I've got two sims at the moment and changing those doesn't affect contract law.
What I do find amusing is people clutching the idea of a sim card like it's a religious object passed down from a higher being eons ago and any attempt to change that how things function around it are an act of heresy. Rather than a sim being a standard agreed upon a few years ago (90/91 iirc) which now Apple (and others) are trying to change for something they think will make things easier.
They could be wrong.
And unfortunately technology moving on makes things, like old phones, obsolete.
I've one of the early Seikos, possibly from around the time you brought yours 98/99? what I did find irritating was the need to change the capacitor every 5/6 years when it wouldn't hold it's charge overnight.
My thinking was; you sold me this with the promise that I don't have to change the battery every five odd years, changing something else with a similar time frame isn't a massive improvement...
"not true, it's the same as it is now"
No, the difference is that now if I were to buy your car taxed up till end of oct then I'd have to sort out tax from 1st nov and you would factor that into the selling price.
Now I have to buy the tax from 1st Oct and you'd have a piece of virtual paper costing £x but worth zero for the partial month of October. So for quite a lot of transactions they'll be two people paying for the same month for the same vehicle...
To me the catalogue is films you may watch if you happened to flick past them but not something I'd actively choose to watch.
You can almost taste the pent up rage in that comment.
"Microsoft has warehouses full of the albatrosses to give away to VIPs."
That's assuming the staff in corporate gifts work out what that ringing sound is..
From some of the hype I'd followed I was expecting a story to play rather than another '<Recent Film Character>18' & '<Garbl3d Rud3 w0rd>' running around shooting each other...
It's in the article...
"Both China and Russia are also developing these weapons"
"It's that POLITICIANS can't run anything,"
People think a politicians job is to run something, when actually it's to get elected and the way to do that now is find a group of people to blame.
No doubt samsung will add eye tracking bloatware to turn the lights off while you blink...
..painting a wall green and walking around holding a few ping-pong balls will suffice?
Don't you worry about the government missing out on tax, it's why politicians are talking about the move to time / distance based taxation.
..So I deleted windows to get some space and now it's not working"
"I've got a project I need to hand it tomorrow"
Also goes to show that all the talk, in the UK, at least about new trainsets is pointless.
Who wants to go from somewhere they're not to somewhere they don't want to go, when you can get auto driven exactly where you want to go.
I don't want to have to be ready to press the stop button when I'm in a self driving car, that'll be even more tedious than driving in heavy traffic.
I want a self-driving car with a sofa bed & curtains.
"I Seem to recall..."
"The latest version..."
Along with being anonymous = concern trolling.
Thanks for trying though.
I've also thought prefixing something with terminal as not too optimistic for it's chances.
So if the laws written by politicians don't define "Fair Share" what does?
"(which aren't great but are very profitable)"
Sounds like most fashionable purchases.
Get yourself into ketosis, then you can eat around 600-800 calories a day and still feel great.
People around you not so much, especially if you breath out.
I'll be happy when you can get a 8inch phone.
Along with a 4inch tablet.
The samsung finger print scanner doesn't have to match apples, just being there is enough so that when people scan phone differences theres nothing not ticked in the s5's columns.
(The post is required, and must contain letters.)
"Take your chances with Apple, be aware that it's a day not working and your time is charged out to your clients isn't it? No work=no pay."
Anybody whose earning relate to a single instance of easily duplicated hardware probably should think a little harder before going into business.
Short version, hardware incompatibility.
With added feelings of inadequacy?
"Wifi is unlikely to be involved mate!"
I'm not sure what technology would need to be built in a car to stop it by electromagnetic pulse that isn't in all cars manufactured since the Trabant..ish. Which is what the EU legislation is waffling on about building into all cars sold in the European market.
"Control, In pursuit of Tango Oscar Six Niner Echo Romeo Lima send stop signal,over"
"Rodger, sending signal now, over"
I wonder who will be held to account the first time a family on a day trip to the seaside is stopped in front of ~70mph traffic by either a fault in the system or false plates on a fleeing car miles away?
"And installing your Nest now will require a Google+ account."
tony just increased his home temperature by 2 degrees
- Want Insulation cheapest insulation in your area -
That was the fun you could have WHSmiths.
That was before they became a purveyor of fine carpets.
A better change would be to change the caption on the block button to "Win the Argument!".
Going from discussions which break down into one or more parties talking about using the "Win the Argument" button.
"spend the $4.95/minute to make it"
I can already see the frowny faces of people holding their $2000+ phone bill their child ran up phoning their friend to gloat over spending $1000 on in app purchases to get the ultra deluxe Smurf apartment, recharges energy 5% faster.
Wont somebody think of the children!
Theres a strategy to follow in TDS?
What are the other options to making an area more / less desirable.
I don't think it's possible to address decay to keep an area's desirability constant.
