on a lonely planet spinning its way to damnation amid the fear and despair of a broken human race who is left to fight for all that is good and pure and gets you smashed for under a fiver??

disloyal and promiscuous
couldn't bring yourself to say "Sinful Fornication", could you? It would be best to honourably euthanise yourself now before the islamomarxist death squads get you for abusing pseudo-science.
refuses to use WiFi?
but every week they find increasingly elaborate schemes to put Mr. BASE-T on a ethernet-wireless bridge
OK... Red wire or black... *Clickety* You've emailed the schematic? Yes, got it! It's opening. And... WHAT? NO!

Re: SKY GO NO LONGER SUPPORTS FF
try setting or making the about:config pref plugins.load_flash_only to false, and restarting firefox.
Re: entries != users
it has 22 columns per row, there are 1.37 billion rows.
If you used Linear motors instead you could do it multiple times to multiple people...
wasn't there also a USB web API that got aborted recently?

Re: Is this even legal in the EU?
If you can't remove the battery from it, you don't own it.

This is probably part of why Pebble went bust
Re: Solutions looking for problems
Does your Eco-Drive support non-gregorian calendars? tide infomation? dawn/dusk time? Weather forecast? Public Holiday information? How about even a 24 hour clock??
I think I can resist your manipulative suggestions I should spend hundreds of pounds on a useless bauble.

"Then carefully deliver something else no matter what settings you've used."
There are more ways to be wrong than right.
Re: Or Ricoh
"Also, in some situations, the PC silently discards print jobs. A Ricoh technician was here for hours, and he couldn’t figured it out."
That like eerily similar to my adventures with CUPS on Debian..
Re: Look on the bright side.
With a bit of luck they'll go on strike and the global index of good taste will undergo a temporary, but measurable, improvement as a result.
Like the Writer's Guild Strike of 2007?
Knapped Flint is technology. Burning coals are technology. Bone Flutes are technology.
7 holes seem good enough for me!
Re: "We are the engineers"
That's not an argument, that's abuse. Presumably arguments are done by different people in a different building....

Re: Sounds Really Clever?
Unused by default, so not really that useful.
If you name your user profile CON you can't save any settings, so PRN and CON are still alive - presumably for legacy support

Are you familiar with the concept "Worse is Better"

Re: AWG @ Spoonguard
In the case of First party branded cables, it would be more trouble for them to lie. Otherwise, it's a good place to start before you pull the ohmmeter out.
If you read the writing on the insulation sheath, it will say 28 AWG (poor, barely half an amp), 26 AWG (Better) or 24 AWG (sufficient). Really nasty cables might be as thin as 32 AWG.

They can just copy-and-paste it.
Useful tablet computers
Tablets work best when you can write on them. Unfortunately at the moment the screen hardware on available tablets isn't up to scratch. And, like voice recognition, the software stack is unable to cope with the wide variety of divergent styles. The OCR have to work at greater than 99% efficiency, and the operating system must store and associate the raw input data on every level for when the OCR fails. We would still be using newton (successors) if these problems had been solved already.
When someone gets this right, will we even notice? The tablet niche is a toy at the moment, little better than a oversized iPod.
I have a much simpler 2 step system

Opera Mini isn't a web browser
It's more like a terminal client for a web browsing service. It is more akin to WAP than the web, considering some stuff won't even load (like this very page, for instance!) and even the the pages that do work (admittedly the majority) sometimes have their URLs mismatched.
It's still useful however. Data isn't cheap.
I don't know what you are on about, but the Android Market can work over WiFi or any internet connection for that matter - it just needs to be on the list of models permitted to access the market.
As I understand it, Phorm identified you by your IP address, and sniffed from what must be the majority of your web traffic, maybe more, and was opt out: you would have to present a special cookie to stop the ads but probably not the sniffing.
Google's services are opt in: Google is not sniffing all your traffic, It can only keep records from google sites you have visited. If you reject cookies from google this information becomes difficult if not impossible to tie together if your IP is dynamic. Additionally, You can opt out of most google advertising by rejecting webpage scripting.
In short, being with a Phorm ISP would have been detrimental to your overall web service; the only way Google would effect your web service is if you actually use it . Sadly I suspect you cannot tell the difference google and the internet.
Don't count on it
As far as I can tell Jingle is peer to peer, at least on the desktop client. VoIP is just a add-on service that makes it more likely that you will be using using the email and XMPP-IM services that can have ads served to them.
The only "doing nothing but evil" is your misplaced paranoia. It should be redirected at some other, actual Googevil methings...
Only Apple would try to patent Sadism and Masochism!
Tab Bar still sucks
And I already have extensions to search my tabs. This seems like more pointless cruft that I don't need - My tree tab bar already can deal with hundreds of Tabs.
How are these applications dialing numbers in the first place? Surely a sensible phone OS would sandbox such hazardous behaviour!
