Lego, back when I was a lad, was just a collection of blocks and you used your own imagination to make *anything*

Yeah, we used to make cars and crash them together to see whose broke first.

Hot growth industry: checking social networks for nasties

ravenviz

I'd have to assume turnover rate for content reviewers could be high. I'm not sure how many people could look at videos day in and day out and not get affected by any 'nasties' that arise such as:

• cats play-fighting incessantly

• shocking attempts at dinner

• incompetent attempts at dismantling an iPhone

• deplorable comedy sketches

• needless anticipation of taking something out of a box

Phone fatigue takes hold: SIM-onlys now top UK market

For me it's definitely storage. Why I don't upgrade more often is because of the cost of accessories, mainly various battery and bumper cases.

Imagine the candles on its birthday cake: Astro-eggheads detect galaxy born in universe's first billion years

Re: Warra crap headline

My rough estimate is that 13 billion candles could occupy a cake 650 m across.

Given the world's largest cake to date, our "G09 83808" cake could weigh 7 tonnes.

IBM asks remaining staff to take career advice from HR-bot

ravenviz
WTF?

What?

There are some key attributes of good managers to do with emotional intelligence, and for employees to actually 'feel' that *someone* is on their side, has their back. Well in the ideal world anyway. These are noble ideals that all managers should at least be aware of, if not aspire to. Giving these 'duties' to a bot really does not give employees the respect they deserve.

I asked the tour guide at JPL why NASA seemed consistently to massively underestimate project lifetimes, including basing future expectations on past performance, but since I was with a load of grade school kids, he preferred to answer a question about whether the ISS had weapons in case aliens attacked.

So according to Google, deep space is -270 degrees, so the device is thus cooled to -67,000 degrees. Now that is cold! Brrr!
