Re: Good luck
Your phone network already knows who you are... why would the spooks bother asking Angry Birds for your details when they can just get them from your network provider?

If you are comparing the per game cost you should also consider the per device cost... An iPhone 6 or similar spec Android phone would cost 4 times as much as a 3DS, so the big game titles costing 4 times as much seems fair to me.
I have had over 200 hours of enjoyment from Pokemon Omega Ruby... On a pound per minute basis this is better than any phone game I have paid for with the possible exception of Football Manager!
I do feel sorry for New Horizons...
Rosetta and Dawn have both been sending back better pictures of 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and 1 Ceres than the photos New Horizon will send back of 134340 Pluto.
Does anybody know how much longer it would have taken to get to Pluto if they planned to go into orbit when they got there instead of speeding past?
You notice the main issue reported was a NASA probe avoiding another NASA probe...
It is not a problem of communications between agencies, it is a problem of communication between different teams within the same agency. They even admit in their press release that only 2 of the 3 NASA missions were event talking to each other before they made the recent changes.
Not sure what you mean by Gaining acquirer-led. In the UK you need to get the PAC (Porting Authorisation Code) from your old provider and give this to your new provider to transfer your phone number.
This is for security reasons and is designed to stop somebody else stealing your phone number.
"If BST were abolished, I'm pretty sure my employer would agree to me working 08:00 to 16:30 in the summer. Would yours though? Would everybody else's?"
Look into the flexible working laws...
Your employer has to give a valid reason you can't work from 08:00 to 16:30 instead of 09:00 to 17:30. Because they don't want you to is not a valid reason.
It was nice for the last few weeks when we have had an extra hour per day to do business with Americans. I had the novelty of them replying to an email while I was still at work and it not taking several days to get issues fixed.
I would vote to end BST if I had the choice.
I disagree with "car comes with it built in" being the main reason. A quick glance round the work car park and only 2 of the cars belonging to management have built in Sat Nav. None of the cars belonging to us plebs have it built in.
It may be a better experience than a smart phone but its not the reason I would choose one brand of car over another and it seems most of my colleagues agree with me.
There are 8 planets. If you are including dwarf planets as planets 10 is way off...
As of Tue Jan 20 2015 there are:
10 objects which are nearly certainly dwarf planets,
22 objects which are highly likely to be dwarf planets,
44 objects which are likely to be dwarf planets,
75 objects which are probably dwarf planets, and
359 objects which are possibly dwarf planets.
The reference to 1000 planets in the original NASA press release is that these are the 1000th confirmed planets from the Kepler mission. I guess this means the 837 other planets on your app must have been detected by other means.
Warcraft was the first game I ever modded. All the sound files when you select a unit were stored as simple wav files. I recorded my own and gave the dwarves a (bad) Irish accent instead of Scottish!
I also remember dragging my PC to a friends house so we could play against each other using a serial cable, although that may have been Warcraft 2.
