IBM misses memo on economic slowdown during Q2

well...

That stain on my monitor does look like Jesus. Which seems like an appropriate comment. If only it were an IBM monitor...

Paris because she's wondering what we're making all the fuss about.

Congress accuses American Phorm of 'beating consumers'

targeted ads

Unfortunately, with the mass of information available on the Internet, it's becoming defensible. As far as behavioral analysis of English and American citizens, the notion started in the 60s and started test implementation in the 70s. I didn't have access to what organization(s) or individual(s) were being targeted or what the expansion factor was.

As for this CRB check...

why was it members of the Register staff had to undergo it? what sort of test was that??

It's the Super Skunk,

remember? He even refers to it. Are some of the media getting paid to refer to pot as something that can inspire hallucinations, relax inhibitions, and do other terrible things like alcohol does?

You should all go to jail. This article distressed me, in fact, with its playful and flirtatious conducted that could have been construed as malicious.

violation of personal liberties

Gad, that would be fairly common-place in the US of A; I doubt there's a magistrate over here that could be convinced to do anything but laugh. A lawyer would take your money, though. At least they're democratic about that.

The House of Lords Wi(n)gs It

As an American, I have only one question in this matter.

US and 'refuseniks'

The actual policy behind controlling departure from the country is interesting, or at least it was as of November 1974. They were worried about mass exodus of a certain (unguessable, I'm sure) class.

I forgot. I live in a country without classes.

something rotten in the state of...e-searching

The pertinent question to ask here is who paid for the complaints. Google is the best source of the kind of information mentioned, currently. Some of the desktop multi-engine tools work nearly as well in my opinion, but that's it.

P.S. You other guys; that was not an accidental error on their part. The toaster did it while being cheerful in the morning to the person falsely accused of writing the article.

Bryan Adams High School

I took a glance. Look at their high school curriculum on 'Social Studies'. This is worse than I got in high school in...1970/71 as far as parochialism goes. The only studies are re. the US and because they're generated by a politically-oriented system, deliberately twisted in viewpoint.

So...in defense of the US...I say

Surveillance by pattern

That's actually been used by NSA and therefore the lesser intelligence agencies since 1973, when some geek idiot suggested it. That moron should suffer from nightmares for the rest of his life.

...That's right. He does.

a cool new law

Why not make 'the' obscene in England? that would keep the government busy for a while, and the deadly skunk users could ignore them. Oops. I meant to leave out the 'the's...

AMD now has 'more than allegations' against Intel

Glenn Charles

chipmakers

The interesting thing is that both had problems with clean rooms at the same time (going down to that spec. requires a first of clean), which was the main reason for the delay on the quad cores. If I remember correctly AMD had to (temporarily, I think) shut down one factory because of an A/C problem.

As far as the xxxx blanks...just think of an executive's mind every time you see one.
