McAfee used to be a pretty decent AV system a few years back - it was fairly nippy and didn't ask for too much in the way of system resources to run. These days, it seems to have become a rather bloated monster, like Norton. Maybe by trimming some of the fat from their personnel, some of the fat may be trimmed from the software too. Although it's never cool to see a hard working person lose their job. =/
Better and much more enjoyable question: Why not?
It's odd that the Koreans are pushing OLED technology when it was a Japanese company that first started shipping a commerical OLED device about 10 years ago. The first time I became aware of it was with Sony's line of Palm OS handhelds. The very last one they produced, which sadly only reached the Japanese market featured an OLED display. It looked rather spiffy and was hellishly expensive.
But I preffered their one about Penetrating Encrypted Networks In Secret.
Maybe bond adds the peppercorns to get rid of the fluoride content of the vodka. It's in children's ice cream after all...
I can see what you're saying about Brosnan, especially in the very sub par The World Is Not Enough. At the beginning of Goldeneye though, the scene with the power plant, he does have a fair amount of his old ruthlessness, given that he was willing to blow up his fellow agent in order to complete the mission, not to mention the scene where they're beating the crap out of each other on the radio transmitter.
Hmmm...it's easier to evaluate them based on individual films rather than overall:
1) Daniel Craig in Casino Royale
2) Sean Connery in Goldfinger
3) Pierce Brosnan in Goldeneye
4) Roger Moore in Live And Let Die.
I can't remember whether it was one of the books or the films but I recall one of Bond's friends saying that his Walther PPK was a "girl's gun".
Anyone can sit on a chair. That is why Facebook is ass.
Wait, Clippy has snuffed it?
Some of Wu-Tang Clan's very early stuff is actually pretty decent and considerably better than the crap pumped out by Dre et al.
"Quad core is overkill when few applications are massively multi-threaded, just optimise your OS or stop using hooky interpreted Java code."
Damn right AC, this processor is far too fast. Why the hell do we want fast processors in the latest iterations of smartphones and pads? We should have been happy with the 500Mhz processors we had back in the days of iPaq. Goddamn kids.
Isn't it obvious? This is revenge for the bacon sandwich article.
I swung by this protest for "Free Pastitsios" and came away hungry when there weren't any.
While the grind is lessened, certainly, it is still there. There's something like 80 or 90 levels to chew through and while the group quests make it easier, it does still boil down to the usual "kill & collect". That said, the tasks do feel more meaningful - gathering crops in a field, putting out fires after a town has been attacked & picking up items that you use yourself. Other nice touches like exploring for skill shrines and vistas are very welcome and unlike SW:TOR's datacrons, they are actually achievable for someone without twitch reflexes.
Does anyone else feel absolutely fricking ancient right now? I remember going to college and my main method of listening to music was on tape! CDs I dallied with briefly but found them too much of pain lugging around everywhere. Minidisc felt like it might have been a solution and then I got my Rio MP3 player with a whopping 32Mb of storage on an MMC card....Goddamn kids and their 160Gb iPods.
It's going to be an Auton powered by iOS.
Also, bonus points to the first person to put an S3 in the model's hand and take a piccie.
Nope, but it's got teabagging down to a fine art now, and its vocabulary now encompasses every racial, sexual and grossly offensive slur known to humankind.
On MY planet? What madness is this?!
Yeah, demons and possessed space ships are pretty scary but I wouldn't rate their chances against a force that gobbles up stars like mint Poppets.
Oyster. That would be really handy to have as an NFC system. Granted, it wouldn't be a whole lot more faster than swiping with a card but it would save a lot of resources.
Well, if this thing does go ahead, as it looks like it will, what would you want your sticker to say?
"My neighbours have made a fortune on eBay. Please ensure that parcels addressed to me do not increase their wealth."
I feel she has excellent grounds for her appeal. She wasn't giving away food, she was giving away McDonalds.
Does this mean we'll have to pay for a new one? =(
If you'll excuse the pun. Apple and Samsung, following their most recent bout, are going to be even more paranoid about their patents and anything they haven't produced themselves is a potential patent lawsuit waiting to happen. The whole smartphone market is toxic at the moment and now seems like a good time to get the hell out. Or at the very least, until a more sensible method of dealing with patents and disputes is brought in.
He'd have been able to stop the Penguin.
Actually, yes, I think I can see an IT angle to this story.
Think about it - every day across the world, all manner of things are inserted into assholes, from conveniently shaped bodily organs, to pens, to animals. What we need to do is design a future accessory port for computers modelled on the human asshole. We'd never have compatibility issues again!
He wasn't slapping cuffs on some pre-pubescent lad on the sauce or sitting in the office doing paperwork - he was trying to *arrest the fucking MOON*. If you're going to nick someone, think big!
Hey, you're right. I've managed to log onto All Evil's server and I'm now screwing with their admin rights. =P
...and their next of kin have already been informed.
Isn't science fantastic?
"We appreciate all of the customer feedback and are working hard to make the customer experience even better."
Well it can't exactly make it worse. >.>
I haven't received any messages about this and I've been checking my 9360 all day. >.>
I am creeped out and slightly scared now. This is not normal behaviour.
Is why we don't bonk random strangers.
Don't be too downhearted for the 6502 will actually make a comeback in the distant future, serving as the CPU of Bending units.
(It's in the episode of Futurama where Fry is looking inside cans of Slurm with an X-Ray. He shines it on Bender's head and clear as day, there's a 6502 chip in there. I always wondered about the reference.)
Yes, I do have one suggestion. Make speakers a mandatory requirement for all PCs. Then the next time someone clicks on a link for high quality adult relaxation therapy, trigger a macro that cranks the PC volume to full and then disables the mute function.
Works very well in cubical office environments.
You can't spell "internet security course" without intercourse.
That last paragraph brought to mind the most wonderful mental image of the sands of Mars being affected like tides.
I sell them teas and coffees and then charge them 5 quid to use the portaloo when the laxatives take effect.
Deep in a forgotten basement at the headquarters of a major IT company, there is endless darkness, lit by the glow of a single CRT display. A...creature...sits at a desk, typing away on a rubberised keyboard, the letters of which have long been worn away. He is not lonely, for there is always work to do. A bug fix here, a new application there. He pauses and sniffs the air. Something has changed, up there in the Daylightworld. A Great Power has become weakened, a result of one style-over-substance decision too many. He cackles. The time is ripe once again.
Across the world, people have nightmares about an endless line of 3.5 inch floppy disks and thick, snake like tentacles comprised of storage tape. At Linux conferences, very, very small groups of individuals don the sacred robe and chant the name of their master, as he rises to snatch the computers of the world from the weakened grip of Redmond.

They make billions in revenue each year but they can't afford a decent editor or news team for their home page?
For an amatuer effort, I thought it was very well done.
Another Swedish dish suggestion could be the Flying Jacob. I just like it because it has a cool name. =P
