It makes a pretty nice synthesizer
Despite it being a HUGE struggle to get it to go fast enough - not sure I can link in here but this was captured straight out of a running Pi - https://soundcloud.com/pisynth/popcorn-on-a-pi
I have spent the last 4 years eating porridge for breakfast AND lunch. Some 700 calorise, total cost abot 20p. Come on, this should be easy.
I like that the photo illustrating the article ...
... looks like a Tardis zapping a Dalek ship. Sort of. If you haven't put your glasses on yet.
I second that motion
The QNX engineering team is awesome.
Thank you for writing this
When people claim to me that Google are somehow kinder, nicer, less oppressive than Apple I shall think of this and smile.
a) very interesting
b) keep up the Silicon Roundabout attacks.
That Bong dude hasn't written much lately, did his funding run out? Time for a C round.
'Peal back' eh - what's the world coming to?
Cue vast celebrity twitter exit
Hmm. I think they've cocked up here.
We'll see the usual pattern ...
... burst of Android sales, never refreshed as people realize they've made a terrible mistake, surge of 'back to Apple' some 12-18 months after the Android push.
Laser sintering ROCKS!
That's the important bit folks, not the 1991 VR stuff. Lasers. Frikkin' lasers.
This is actually funny you know
Therefore, since the world is such a bloody miserable place lately, why is anybody complaining about this?
Tits are still up
Big tits, very much up.
30th anniversary of MIDI, 50th anniversary of the Mellotron!
A good year for unguitars and undrums I'd say.
Try as they might, they will not keep those tunnels free of low-pressure hardened rats
So what happens when one of these 'fearless of a gentle vacuum' rodents enters the compressor at 760 mph? Probably a big old train wreck.
Are you sure the platform is WIndows?
Because I don't see many - sorry, any - Tegra Android design wins out there right now. There seems to be the sound of tumbleweed blowing through empty streets compared to 12 or 18 months ago. Let's see how much better they fare when there is a good GPU in there with CUDA / OpenCL capability.
Bitterly disappointed. I read the title as 'What did The Ramones ever do for us?' so the absence of Blitzkrieg, Baseball Bats, Gabba and Glue left me bewildered until I re-read the titles.
I for one welcome our new gay pink gradienty overlords
Because they give you a fluffy gay pink phone with one hand, and a man-sweat stinky big-ole-pair-of-bollocks Mac Pro on the other. It's a WW1 shell case in shiny black ceramic stuffed full of GPU and extruded aluminium. It's totally, 100% dude, and is built for hitting 7 stone weaklings over the head. The chicks can keep their MacBook Airy Fairies and their phoney wonies, we men will have out iPads and our Mac Pros.
The new Apple - masculine and feminine sides in perfect balance.
It's missing all the 5 major food groups
As far as I can tell, it has
No bacon cheeseburger
No ice cream
although it sort of looks like ice cream after a night in the sun.
So zero out of 5 and one bad impersonation. I'll give it a miss.
This article needs a good proof read
I know 'C' and 'G' look similar and all, but really - get thorough guys.
Kills farts stone dead. Has transformed my life. Plus if you have a woodstove, it's free.
I reckon I am nearly there, pretty much all the time ...
Since I decided to kick the 'fat bastard' habits of a long and pretty fat lifetime, I've been eating 2 meals a day of porridge with 'jampote' (basically foraged fruit - blackberries, hedgerow damsons and plums - collected for free and frozen in season, then cooked up in big batches with a bit of sugar to make a low-sugar jam). The liquid to cook up the porridge is about 30% water, the rest cheap as hell LIDL UHT semi-skimmed. So for sure my breakfast / lunch budget is about 20p a day. And has been for 3 1/2 years. Dinner is a 'real' meal.
At that rate surviving a week with dinner for 80p and no coffee should be easy (ish). The absence of coffee will be the problem.

In China all software is free
It's cultural - piracy is 100% the norm, and it's way easier to get pirate software onto Android than iOS. Hence the desire to get onto the best Android phone, Makes perfect sense.
Sod the article
Just print lots more photos of Roxy Music album art please?
"ignore all patents ... "
I'd say in my experience that this is absolutely standard practice - engineers are instructed to never attempt to perform any patent prior art research, if an infringement comes up it's the job of legal to sort it out. So Apple are no better or worse than anyone else.
Great use for your embarrassing old iPad 1 without a camera ....
.... stick on the table with the registration image showing, allowing your shinier, thinner new iPad to be totally AR cool. It would have been cheaper to buy a printer of course but I wanted the new iPad more.
Are Bong Ventures hiring?
Seriously, this dude is da bomb. Nobody else in the entire world-beating UK HTML5 industry is quite so zeitgeistig, so utterly au courant. I could thrive in an incubator like that - astonishing, visionary, and surely an acquisition target to grow and frankly improve DFJ. I need those stock options fieldmarshal Bong!
It's those damn photino birds
The sun Lieserl, the sun!
5-6MBits - "That's easily comparable to the ADSL speeds most of us enjoy" - try living in the rural Cotswolds, 1MBit is Ferrari pace round here.
So it's true, women can only use technology if it's pink
Expect a thorough kicking when you get home, sir. Particularly if your gift of lurve is a pink USB hard drive.
Hmm - if it's working ...
... why is the 'Test fire' clearly a bad rendering? Love what they are doing, but surely they don't need to cheat.
That picture is rubbish
Have they never heard of antialiasing?
How about a New Year's resolution - fewer cock jokes? Go on, you know you want to.
Normally I wholeheartedly agree with Orlowski, however ...
... I don't get this. At all. Is that badly-synced, badly-animated, badly-rendered video supposed to be a showcase of world-beating technology?
Maybe it's just that particular video is rubbish, but if it's genuinely representative of what the software is all about, then the software and the company that created it are doomed. I really hope it's a great piece of software with a very, very poor showcase video.
Oh I loved my cube so much ...
Errr - this could get bad - they'll either come back and demand the oceans. Or maybe they'll whizz off at almost light speed to escape the end of the universe. Depends if they read the short story or the big book.
This is the third time, I've asked this, I know it's falling on deaf ears, but *PLEASE* get a photographer to review the cameras. Please. I simply cannot tell whether these cameras are any good or not because the photos that illustrate the reviews are garlic-turd stinky.
Good Lord, look at the 'example' photos ...
... any chance we could have somebody who can actually take photographs be the reviewer next time? Hard to take any review of a camera seriously when the photos being used to rate it are so laughably dreadful.
'Steve Jobs stated explicitly, when he launched the official iPhone developer's kit, that VoIP applications would not be welcome.' - inaccurate. VOIP over WiFi is legit and will be welcomed. Over 3G or EDGE it's disallowed.
Ubiquitous mobile coverage?
No way - not out here in rural England. Femtocells make perfect sense to turn no coverage an sub-1Mbit broadband into a usable alternative to Skype.
Still unusable today
Of course it's a smartphone
iPhone most certainly is a smartphone - featurephones have a single CPU tasked with executing the radio stack and the 'OS' (for want of a better expression) - smartphones have a distinct baseband CPU to deal with the cellphone network, and another CPU - the application processor - running the OS and applications.
