Blas-for-you... blas for everybody!

Zen always was the best ISP that I ever had, quite why I went to BT is baffling.
If you live in the UK you have two choices.
And after all that extra cash they don't even have the rights for all of the matches.
...providing they can escape Guantanamo first obviously.
"Does playing the old anti-french sentiment still pay in british media?"
It's all Brexit fodder...
In the real world we've forgiven them for most things including: fixing the targeting algorithm on Exocet missiles used against us by the Argentinians during The Falklands War.
I don’t wish to sew the seeds of conspiracy, but as Google also has the keys to the drinks cabinet of search, how long before all of this bad press will simply vanish?
Does SAAB still make that tactical fighter?
The concerted "global effort" to stop the illegal drugs trade didn't appear very successful.
Your country has very draconian punishment for those convicted of production, supply and financial service.
What would the US do differently to stop cracking?
You should write to your MP about encryption.
I wrote to mine, the response was truly depressing.
Get ready for more of this kind of thing, legitimately.
As soon as publishers estimate the real cost of ad-blocking technology, they'll need to recover the cash from somewhere.
<Scooby Doo villan voice>
"And I would have gotten away with it too.. if if wasn't for you meddling kids!"
The levels of buffoonery (that I observe) are simply unmatched outside of a Rowan Atkinson or comedy.
Reducing the wright of batteries and motors is a good thing.
Reducing the distance between the seat in front of me and my knees, however...
TalkTalk really do need to sack their PR team.
While they're at it, they probably need to remove 80% of their C level staff too.
Is he suffering from mental illness?
I'm just glad to see that Apple hasn't lost touch with it's customers in these austere times.
It's a phone, with a PDA function and if it wasn't for Android being the satanic love child of Google, we'd all be using [them] instead.
Some marketing plonker must have done too much coke methinks.
Surprised that Wales isn't included.
For those of you who aren't aware, Wales is a nation that's a part of the United Kingdom and has over three million inhabitants.
Admittedly it's fairly dispersed, but Cardiff would have been a good place to start and it's not much further than Bristol.
Welsh assembly; you toothless tribe of final salary pension-drawing elves, you've failed again.
Top marks for style, and... a steam roller too.
A company the size of VF only gererated £2M in 3 months?
Is this a misprint or will shareholders be baying for a new CEO before long?
It's easy to do, take some tin foil, wrap the device, then earth it.
Admittedly, you iPhone won't be much good while wrapped, but you can spare all of your kitten pictures and "jazz film" collection.
Ad vendors use complex algorithms to ascertain the maximum "pod" length that can be run before a viewer will simply go elsewhere.
We only have ourselves to blame.
It's only 9am (ish) and already there's 5 pages of comments.
Ad brokers will be rubbing their hands with glee.
How about running a story with a headline "Linux is better than Windows: Official"?
I'm excited to see where Mr Moffat is taking The Doctor.
...providing that there's absolutely no "love interest" nonsense.
I think it would devalue the show and potentially be the worst thing to ever happen to Dr Who since that John Barrowman spinoff.
I'm not a nuclear physicist and don't know which type of plutonium they pulled out of Windscale back in the 1950's, but it's certainly one or the other.
As nobody set off any old nukes, the AWE need to understand if they will still reach the critical mass to cause a chain reaction... or if they'll open a vortex into another dimension where beasties and people much scarier than the fat Nork bloke (with the bad hair) live.
You may as well just hire a wedding DJ.
Corporate gigs are the worst place to enjoy yourself either as an attendee or a performer.
This old chestnut?
Unless they can buy a tier one broadcaster and simply use their assets it's not going to work.
According to The Independent, Three has gone tango-uniform today.
Delightful news; I'm really happy for the team that made this a success.
Finally it makes launching tings into orbit a bit less expensive and who knows, perhaps India will start to plan for reaching further than just high orbit.
Yes, and their maps are ok (ish) too.
I can only guess the worry of some of the medical students about calling their parents...
It's all gone covfefe.
Sky won't be toot worried, they know most users consume their advert-ladened "premium" content off of their satellite service.
Forgive me for posing such an obvious question, but I thought all you Linux enthusiasts were able to fix anything.
Is there an underlying problem that prevents you?
I'm reminded of that scene in Blazing Saddles where The Governor demands a "huurumph" from those in the room to protect their phoney-baloney jobs.
I wrote my MP about this and received a "stock" answer.
The problem (as stated many times above) is politicians do NOT understand the world we all live within and they don't want to either.
If only Android wasn't Google...
Hang on... isn't all that expensive x-ray hardware supposed to find explosives inside stuff?
Or, are they worried that someone will be able to penetrate the avionics (of the aircraft) and crash it from a command line?
Customer is king.
Someone wants to spend many millions on my software and requires it to run on (let's say) an obscure BSD variant, I'd make that happen.
If I didn't, someone else would and that would be money on their balance sheet and not mine.
As a fail-safe, just ban all air travel from anywhere except Israel (of course).
This is how it works.
"Or are they selling the collected data that's the essence of personalisation?"
Where better to test these systems, but on a really challenging route into The Capital.
Getting through Oxford is bad enough, but if they can manage Jericho to Elephant and Castle (reliably), I'm in baby!
Considering most drivers on the south-bound M40 are already on auto pilot, it won't affect anyone too much.
I'd be on the front row (to be a passenger) providing that when the door opens you're greeted with a "Welcome to Johnny Cabs".
How long before Last Week Tonight runs an ad in the Washington DC area (on Fox News) that says:
"Ok Google, show me evidence of man-made climate change"
Shareholders demanded cost saving.
I'm sure they are all delighted with the result.
... alway was and always will be.
Apple will need to 'land' a major OTT publisher at the very least to make Apple TV really work.
Sky 1 does make some linear television (in the style of a bad ITV franchisee from the 1980's).
I take your point, but I'd hardly put Atlantic in the same bucket, Sky 1 is a mixed entertainment channel... although entertainment is a subjective term.
Sky's biggest weakness is customers cancel their contracts - especially during the break between football seasons.
While Sky has all the box set and films, they still haven't made the breakthrough with normal television entertainment. A cursory glance on the overnight data shows that even E4 gets more viewers than Sky's 'flagship' Sky1 channel.
My only hope is the one day, El Reg hacks will be running the Daily M*il.
I'm still amazed by the dynamics and how they can take exactly the correct amount of fuel into orbit - and still have enough for breaking and landing.
Some clever people working for Elon.
Nothing wrong with Groove Armada.
