You meant "N/A".
The article forgot to mention Panasonic's 4k2k plasma TV, the TH-152UX1W. As those familiar with Panasonic's naming structure will know, it's a 152-inch screen with all the bells and whistles. For those of you who have walls that can accommodate a TV which is 13 feet along the diagonal, it's a snip at a mere £600,000.
Plenty. It's a certainty that every HDD maker is developing drives above 3TB, but they'll want to have as much time as possible to do R&D and reduce the failure rate. If the rumours are true, then by admitting it WD let their rivals know the window in which they can get their drives out first. If the rumours are false, then by admitting it WD give their rivals the opportuniy to say "Well Western Digital may not be able to do it to that timescale, but we can!"
By leaving everyone in the dark about their plans until they're good and ready to announce them, rival companies are deprived of the ability to plan their schedule based on WD's.
i can top that - I genuinely know of a man named Richard Head.
Hmmm - should I downvote you for not spelling "illicit" correctly?
I think we can say with certainty that post-op male-to-female transsexuals have had more than enough of bollocks, and are doing very well without.
Did you consider that some of the transsexuals may have been female-to-male?
That is not dead which can eternal lie
And with strange aeons, even this joke may die.
From the guy who made Wing Commander and nothing good since, and the game has pay to win for Kickstarter backers only. Also, the last time Chris Roberts started up a studio was Digital Anvil. They announced four projects, two of which were never released and a third was released two years late with a lot of the promised features missing.
So yeah, look out for Star Citizen ... in 2016, and only if you've already bought it.
FTL is best described as "a totally random mess". I remember a roguelike where you had something like a 1 in 100000 chance to die instantly every time you went down a level. Up that chance to 1 in 50 and you have FTL. Don't waste a penny on it.
The Binding of Isaac, on the other hand, is well worth its tiny price. It can also be infuriating sometimes when you hit a bad run for items or get some nasty room layouts, but the RNG factor is at least held to a reasonable level.
We may stop when Apple patents it.
No, it still needs correction.
guilty people Daily Mail readers get set free believe what it prints."
You're a dead man, Vanni. I'm still scarred for life by that, since I discovered that you can put yourself into the chest in Bag End.
You see, if you climb into the chest then close it, the game very cleverly knows that it will be dark. Unfortunately, it being dark means you cannot see. So, despite being inside an unlocked chest, you can't get out again because you can't see it to open it. I spent far too long trying, and much if it went like this:
> THORIN, OPEN CHEST
Thorin ignores you.
> THORIN, OPEN CHEST
Thorin sits down and starts singing about gold.
> THORIN, OPEN CHEST
Thorin sits down and starts singing about gold.
In my next game, I discovered there is a very small chance that KILL THORIN will actually work.
Aren't Samsung in enough trouble already from violating Apple's patents?
This is an article about comics for kids. I don't think two books that feature body horror, full frontal nudity and multiple rapes qualify somehow.
(And before you mention Watchmen and TDKR - they were mentioned only in the context of how they made it so comics weren't for kids any more.)
If you want the whole run, The Ballad of Halo Jones is available as a single volume containing all three books.
After the end of the Great War stories there was a second run in which a 40-year-old Charley volunteers for re-enlistment in World War II. It was planned to carry on deeper into the war, but sadly Joe Colquhoun's health began to fail to the point where he couldn't keep up with the art and it was felt that nobody could replace him. As a result, the story was wrapped up when Charley is wounded in the retreat from Dunkirk and leaves the forces. The last episode ends with him starting to tell the story of his service in the First World War, after which Battle began reprinting the stories from the beginning.
Charlie^W Simon forgot to tell a joke!
Of course, as a former IT bod I've had the reverse of this conversation many times. If you think lusers asking for things they can't have because they don't understand how complicated it is is infuriating, try talking to support staff who don't let you have things you genuinely need because they think it's far more complicated than it really is. There's a Japanese proverb: "A strategy not fully developed is the cause of grief". It's never been truer than when dealing with incompletely trained IT drones.
When there are no queues for an Apple launch, it is not because Apple have stopped marketing massively overpriced, overhyped tat to fashion victims. It is because their naked greed has risen to the point that their customer base can no longer afford to buy all the tat - that, and the tat is so much tattier that even fashion victims won't buy it.
What about Montgomery? My grandfather was in Africa during World War II where he served in the First Army, and it always annoyed him that people think Montgomery and the 8th Army were the only ones there. If you want to put anyone on a bank note for the Tunisian Campaign make it General Sir Harold Alexander, who commanded it.
"The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy has this to say on the subject of zombies..."
Also, as any fule kno Krikkit is not a H2G2 reference - it's a Doctor Who reference. Adams originally wrote the story for Who, later recycling it for H2G2 with Slartibartfast as the Doctor and the Starship Bistromath in place of the TARDIS. This is why the Wikkit Key plot bears a suspicious resemblance to the Key to Time arc of Who.
And also counterbalances the inch that is lacking from the thing you're holding in the other!
(I'd get my coat, but apparently you're not allowed to wear one while being evil.)
He couldn't have been a very good mate if you left him on your car roof.
Yes, think on how they'll be able to use all existing peripherals while people who buy an iPad 4 or Mini will have to replace theirs.
The manufacturers of iCade must be spitting teeth; their device is now obsolete, and due to its nature (it's an arcade-style case with joystick) you can't use an adaptor with it.
Your Amazon default address and your Prime delivery addresses are separate values. If you changed one without changing the other then this will cause problems.
I'm given to understand that Finland still uses teletext, so it's not gone forever. You'll just have to move to Finland. And learn to read Finnish.
How exactly do you think they can recess a camera lens in a device less than a quarter of an inch thick?
In the cinema when it first came out, as I have with every Bond movie since Octopussy. Say what you like about Moore being too old - he certainly was in VTAK - but however silly his movies got they still had a leavening of good nature that kept them watchable. QoS was po-faced and humourless, with Bond driven by revenge for a woman he had used and callously thrown away in the book of Casino Royale and who we'd been given no reason to like in the movie based on it.
In fact, it boggles me why people like Craig as Bond at all. Brosnan's later movies were just as silly as Moore's were, and Craig's are no darker than Dalton's. But Dalton was slated for being too dark and "not what we want from Bond", while Craig is treated like the Second Coming of Sean Connery.
And yet you're willing to put Craig second, even though Quorum of Bollocks is the worst Bond movie and he's only made one other (see: Lazenby)?
I'll be voting for Dalton as soon as I get to a computer where the poll works because he was closest to the character as written. It's close with Connery, though, as Fleming approved of his portrayal.
Don't be silly, springtails don't hitch-hike. They don't have thumbs.
Not really, and I don't bother downvoting them either. I'm of the belief that he does it deliberately in an attempt to get as many negs (read: "as much attention") as possible. Being the most unpopular person on a message board still makes you the most of something, after all. Far be it from me to help stroke his ego.
We are and we can. But when we decide to make a treaty like this one with another nation, however foolish that decision may be we must abide by it. Thankfully there exist checks and balances to ensure we can't be sold completely down the river by those decisions.
Because it's old now? Still being a playable game is meaningless - I've been playing Paradroid since 1985 and Wizball since 1987 and they're as good as they ever were. The great games are timeless.
"Doom" - check. "Dark" - check. As for revenge, I guess God was jealous that Singleton was better at worldbuilding and making sandbox games.
I think I'll dig out the old Retro Gamer issues with long, in-depth articles and interviews with Mike about Lords of Midnight. There was some good stuff on his plans for the never-completed final game in the Midnight Trilogy.
Also, for the love of God don't venture into the forums. If you do, your time perception won't be the only thing that is perturbed.
Just how big is your wife? And just how long do you think you'll stay married after she sees that comment?
Well, obviously fanbois wouldn't buy it - fanbois only want the latest Apple products.
I'm not surprised it didn't reach the reserve, though; even as a piece of computing history an Apple 1 is nothing special compared to something like a Commodore 65 prototype.
Sold to multiple clients, obviously. I sure as hell don't spend $1000 a year in on-spec purchases, though, so anyone purchasing my data is gambling on bad odds even if they only paid $50.
I blame Walter Bishop.
(Beer icon, because Fosters always claimed it was "the amber nectar".)
Aya, I was looking at the wrong calculation. My bad.
it seems that FAIL is the only thing recurring in this thread, though, as even without a calculator I know that 35/12 is not 2.19666 - it's 2.91666.
No, he doesn't. £1.85bn divided by 81.6m is £22.67.
That said, I would doubt his cited figure of 81.6m mobile contracts as that's 33% more contracts than there are people. Of course some people will have both personal and business phones, but equally there are a lot of people who have a PAYG phone or have no mobile at all. Does anyone have a source for that number?
Congratulations, you have just patented firing the iPhone 5 into the Sun. This can only be a good thing, as the fanbois still won't let go of theirs.
I believe Lucy is referring to the game's lack of a method to directly trade items between characters. You have to use the TP or mail system.
I don't know about that, but I do believe that if the company reps want to bid in this spectrum auction they'd better hope they have B-cup breasts or larger. Otherwise it may be illegal for them to wear red underpants on their head in Australia.
Don't worry, you've only just been introduced to it. SoC is a great gateway game, but it does pall realtively quickly once you realise the game is 70% luck after the initial setup. You'll soon want to move on. If you want something more thoughtful go for Caylus, but if you prefer the light style give Dominion a go.
I'm also failing to see what anyone finds wrong in playing strategic games with heavy elements of planning and negotiation. You can get good jobs with those skills.
Yes, I expect that Peter Molyneux was a heavy influence on Black and White creator Peter Molyneux.
I'm also failing to see the connection between Populous and Settlers of Catan, as they have no mechanics in common. The only link is the goal of "start with a village and make more", which is so generic as to be no link at all.
Don't compare apples and oranges. Vasectomy is no different to complete removal of the testes so far as hormone production goes, but it doesn't kill your libido or render you incapable. Chemical castration differs in that it alters your biochemistry directly, replacing the testosterone that is already present.
Except by the time you are a rapist you're already a fully functioning male, and loss of your testicles will only prevent you reproducing. As a guy I knew once said: "You've got meat and two veg. Take away the sprouts and you've still got a meal."
Go back to reading the Daily Mail.
The iOS version only works with the forward facing camera?
Well, I suppose everyone knowing you're an idiot will change your life, but perhaps not in the way you might have hoped.
(Note: this sentiment applies to anyone who queues for days for anything, not just to iPhone buyers.)
