> At one point I went through effectively 5 phones in a year
Surely that's indicative of the phone user, not an issue with the phone, if you can afford the £1k for the phone, you can afford the 2 year Apple Care for it to be fixed/replaced.
Dave 126 - you're wasting your breath, if you're not denigrating Apple and the iPhone, you're a delusional fanboi and need to be down-voted into oblivion apparently.
Dune... the building of a dy...nasty
Cue "what have the Romans ever done for us" sketch.
Yay. More routers getting hacked and malware site injecting DNS changes incoming.
Not a fan boi, have an iPhone, don't care.. Let the downvotes commence.
6031769 - thank you!
Did they get the job though?
No, that'd be the ACME Parachute Kit.
Amazon files for Hindenburg flying warehouse?
The problem with that, is if everyone used Classic Shell, there'd be no-one left to whine how bad it is, and how you should be switching to *insert preferred flavour of *nix here*, and Microsoft would think everyone is happy with their efforts.
Watched it last night at the local IMAX, thoroughly enjoyed it, but two things bothered me, firstly, was the the lack of theme tune at the start, I saw the "A long time ago" and closed my eyes in preparation for the spine-tingling crescendo , but was denied, bummed me out for a minute or two that!
Secondly was at the other end of the film, and the poor CGI of Leia, it was completely unnecessary and bad to be honest, they did well with Tarkin though, even if the voice was off.
Yet 99% of the posters on here would suggest you use Linux instead, which is SO much more user friendly in that regards...
@Ledswinger - Got my Indisit dryer fixed this week, 14 months after reporting :)

EG. TESCO.SE1216 - shows ownership, both company and user and issue date.
To be fair, Bambi in the young ones, was a shortened version of Bamber, as in Bamber Gascoigne.
Unless your name is Jasper Carrott.
What has his skin colour got to do with it, you racist f**k?
So, all the adverts in the cinemas from F.A.S.T. were wrong - YOU WOULD DOWNLOAD A CAR!!!
Well, I hope they still send out SORN/Renewal letters, because I have no idea when my tax is due any more.
I before E except after C..
(well unless it's on this list of course: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Category:English_words_not_following_the_I_before_E_except_after_C_rule )
Careful Jason 7, the folks round here carry pitchforks, and don't like you arguing in favour of Microsoft, you're risking downvote hell.
I remember Windows 1 or 1.1 with Microsoft Executive, and I remember 3.0 with the chess.bmp background, but I can't picture Windows 2 for some reason.
UK- Oree gar no
US- Ore rag en no.
"3 thumbs up" - says it all really...
Probably went in the back door..
It isn't, in much the same way most news articles when discussing someone will also mention their age in brackets, for whatever reason they think we need to know how old a perp is.
.. is a clean usable website that show up on Google's front page when I go searching for something, other than that, not interested.
Adblock (without acceptable ads) ftw.
Shouldn't that be 802.3bmw ?
He is, and don't call him Shirley.
Is that how you get "tea and no tea" ?
Well, it makes a change the petrol company being shafted by the consumer.
Oil at 2004 price/barrel - is petrol at the pump anything close to the same parity?
It's not a dumb watch, it's just a watch, they tell the time, it's kind of their raison d'être...
For reference Bleu, my own father was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer, after a week of stomach ache, 5 days later he died, so yeah, it could easily have the cancer, or the instant detox.
Does anyone else think the Stormtrooper in that screenshot look like a recruitment ad for Anonymous ?
I presumed it was Over the t'Interweb
but.. but.. the company selling the product said they wouldn't, so it won't...

Well, the people who rang Dido up *said* they were calling from the bank, with a thick indian accent.
It's a smegging garbage pod!
I was slightly miffed about the "dude" bit, but I coped, what bugs me in a time travel program is paradoxes, there are many in that episode, but I'll just give you two from the last 30 seconds.
1. Getting to Skaro to potentially killed Davros again: erm, his T.A.R.D.I.S. was just blown up.
2: Killing Davros with a Dalek weapon: hello.. WHAT weapon when Davros is dead?
No it's not, it's just as easy to find as it is in Windows 8 - Win-X
Right-Click File Explorer on Start Menu, click Manage (as per My Computer in previous versions)
or (the easiest yet)
Click Start button, type 'DEVICE' press ENTER
It's from an American company, it's guaranteed to be an Oxbridge stiff upper lip whilst stroking a black cat, and saying "No Mr Bond, I expect you to die!"
What, you couldn't determine that the word IN was accidentally transposed with IS instead?
