What's the possibility of it producing one of these?
I've got things planned for mine and need at least 12 hours to get myself set up.

"The Tories note that by 2017, the 3GW hour shortfall will mean "a 15 minute power cut for every household in Greater Manchester, every winter night for a month"
What, they're not going to spread it out across the country? It's grim enough up here as it is. Won't someone think of the Northern children?
Big deal he ran the company for 6 months. By all accounts he runs it anyway. Personally I rather feel it runs itself. I reckon if I'd have sat in that seat for 6 months, iPods and Macs would still have sold, the iStore would still have sold apps and "re-invest in Microsoft stock" would have remained my mantra. Nobody is "worth" this kind of money.
Surely the potential for something to go wrong leaving you in charge of a suddenly immobilised car is massive. 60-0 isn't good for you or the car(s) behind you, worse (maybe) if you're in the middle of crossing a railway line. Couldn't there be a noise complaint if your car continues to make a honking noise which you can't stop?
I appreciate the idea of affordable rentals but it doesn't sound like rocket science to disable the device as soon as you're off the forecourt.
My brother reccomended a band to me, I listened to them on their myspace, five of us then went to see them and I've just got tickets to see them again. The outcome isn't materially any different from if he'd given me their CD, mp3s, a tape etc.
If you extrapolate to the whole country, as reports are wont to do, my brother is single handedly saving the music industry.
Whilst it's silly to argue on the Internet, claiming that this word has "evolved" or is "generally accepted to mean something else now" is fallacy. Evolution isn't continuing to use a word badly and using a word badly in front of a few people doesn't make it acceptable.
Given how many other more correct words are available why use this one?
As for how you "fix" a riddled PC once it has been cut off from the Internet - you take it to a PC shop where they upgrade it for you. Let's get these PCs off the Internet first and worry about fixing them second.
As with Pre, a simple update that stopped your Google flavoured device accessing your Microsoft based PC or Mac would indicate this was a real war.
Not only moving Bing in but actively blocking Google by default in Safari and IE would make this a real war.
Cosying up to China would make this a real war.
Until then it's just posturing.
Did they manage to remove and replace the number pad with nobody watching? Isn't there usually a CCTV camera pointing at ATMs?
As for the cost of locking them up.. maybe the answer isn't longer sentences but different ones. I'd suggest neutering as a good deterrent. Followed by a lobotomy. Then maybe chopping both hands off. Then feeding to hungry pigs. This should be the standard penalty for most crimes that get media attention.
The technical reason that all kids couldn't be issued cards is simple. Nobody could afford the umpty trillion currency running cost of such a system, this is IT after all.
Then there would be the loss of cards, the misuse of them, the fact that cards proving you are a kid are a paedophiles dream, the outrage from well you know, outraged people.
I personally don't think we should be encouraging a card carrying children state.
It doesn't really matter whether flash runs well or badly - Apple aren't going to let it run at all because they have their own thing they're bringing to the table. The discussion over quality is moot at best. Time to get back to watching flash movies and playing flash games on my PC which doesn't crash or run really slowly every time there's an advert on a webpage.
Who leaves money in Paypal?
The second you transfer some money to me it's going into my real bank.
In fact, it would be easier all round if you'd just transfer the money into my real bank and bypass Paypal altogether. Especially if I was going to publish some paperwork on Paypal, what did they really think might happen?
No it's not really. It's name is Tilly and it's an Orcinus orca. I could call my hamster a killer hamster but wouldn't make it so. Even if it did kill someone it wouldn't make the genus killers.
If the whales were known as killers of humans before they captured it, locked it in a small tank and forced it to perform tricks then the blame couldn't be really placed on the animal now could it?
Yes.. the good old Romans. If they sent a scout "over there" and it didn't come back, they didn't investigate at all. Which is why they were always being ambushed from behind.
If only they'd gone "over there" a bit they might have had a really successful Empire that lasted a really long time.
Oh wait, more Gollocks.
So if we want to cut down on hardware and software glitches then we should buy from a manufacturer who controls the channel - in this case the Apple store should win out. In the case of WinMo it could be argued that trying to design for too many handsets and too wide a userbase is actually a bad thing.
Then again asking 155 people, some of whom don't even own a phone, isn't much of a survey.
A much much better spend would be to come up with more intelligent humans by 2018, multilingual, capable of remembering a lot of stuff, good at formulating really clever plans and with advanced social skills. People are already self-aware, low power, easy to move around the world at short notice. Couple them with DARPA-improved iPhones and send me my money please.
