Re: 37 Billions
£1B per week = £52B per year.
Or 37 weeks @ £1B = £37B.
Where did you get 3 years?
And to think I got a U for CSE maths in 1971.

Craghoppers Kiwi trousers have had an 'inner' pocket in the leg map pocket for some years now.
A few years ago it was just big enough for an iPhone 3GS. Then a couple of years ago I bought another pair and it was big enough for an iPhone 4S. I have a Note 3 now but haven't bought any Craghoppers lately so can't report on current sizes ;-)
... emoji originate from Japan? At least that would account for the Japanese(?) characters and stereotypical westerners with their big round eyes.
And who says they are gay anyway? They might me friends.
Nothing wrong with it though - no doubt the religious wankers er, zealots of all description, not to mention the Daily Mail will be on the case. Ironically emailing from their Apple devices.
I can never understand the logic behind comments like this. Whatever your choice of TV provider, you'll still have to pay a licence fee. If you choose to go with satellite or cable you'll just pay more to watch programmes that only require a TV and aerial to receive.
Don't forget the BBC does more than just TV. Everyone should listen to Stephen Fry's speech on the subject from a couple of years ago.
That all said and done. I would sooner the BBC spent the money on F1 (which I don't watch) than waste it on drivel like EastEnders or brain numbingly tedious Celebrity Chav Show Jumping On Ice Karaoke.
And whilst we're on the subject of BBC handing out money. I'll decide which charity I'll donate to thank you very much.
I'm no fan of that idiot Ross either.
'He's right. People kill people. To be more specific, people with guns kill people.'
As do people with knives, people with swords, people with bombs, people with broken bottles, people with metal bars, people with cars, trucks, planes, hands, feet, planks of wood and countless other 'murder' weapons.
Ban them all!
. . . for a gadget that people like yourself turn out in droves for just to hate.
No, I don't want one. When it's got to about v4 and I'm due a new laptop (I reckon on 3 to 4 years for this new MacBook), then I might go for one. It will (by then) suit my needs and will be a lot easier to haul about than a laptop and providing it syncs to my desktop (shouldn't be a problem with MobileMe, Evernote and Dropbox) then I'll have everything I need. YMMV.
I might get one for my Mum. It runs Mac OS (she tried Windows and gave up). It does email, web browsing and she can look at pictures of her grandchildren, but the main thing is that it's light enough for her to carry it about. As long as we can get some sort of non slip case. She'll be happy with it. It does the job. What's the problem?
Giving us your valued opinion. You even read a story about this 'pointless device' and made the effort to post.
So it's not exactly pointless is it? Deep down inside you are just burning up with jealousy/envy/greed/desire/hatred.
I bet you really want one but are too scared of looking like a fanboi after mouthing off to both of your friends about how pointless it is.
Exactly. Far too may sites don't play properly on anything other than IE.
And what about corporate intranets? We are still on XP (and not likely to change anytime soon) and are tied to IE. We've only just discovered IE7 FFS!
I'd love to try FF or even Chrome (doesn't seem too shabby) but have to endure IE at work, which reminds me - back tomorrow after a weeks half term holiday. I bet Outlaw will be full of shite emails as well when I log in :-(
Pint 'cos it's nearly Sun lunchtime \o/
Looks like an OMP to me. Model H1000. Still have a stylus for one of those somewhere, and a PSU for that there eMate.
As for the tablet - fake or real that seems a pointless piece of kit. You'd have to buy one of those geeky messenger bags and pretend your 20 years old (that'll work for me, I'm 52) or walk around all day with it in your hand. Does it come with a free t-shirt that says 'I'm a posing twat, please rob me'?
Very impractical. My iPhone pretty much does it all now anyway, although a bluetooth keyboard wouldn't go amiss. For full internet use my iBook suits me as well. This is one piece of Apple kit I won't be buying.
Real or fake, it's a turkey.
