Facebook wants to Zuck up your cash into its mobile payment service

Baron Ebaneezer Wanktrollop III

And you'd really trust your cash to a website that's been in existence for over 10 years but still can't manage to eradicate the continuous onslaught of spammy ' OMG you wouldn't believe what happens to this girl next' videos which (apparently) lead you to extremely dodgy locations.

Ram it.

If this post gets 1,000 likes and shares I'll get my nob out.

Windows 8.1 Update: Throws desktop drones a bone but still as TOUCHY as ever

Baron Ebaneezer Wanktrollop III

Re: 'and if you need sideloading keys, you can purchase an unlimited number for around $100.'

The problem is that an Enterprise doesn't want to have to download an App from the MS CRAPP store for each and every PC they have so they want to sideload naturally.

I just don't agree with the bloody fee - problem here is?

Oh - you said Apple will not let you sideload - you 100% about that?

Baron Ebaneezer Wanktrollop III

'and if you need sideloading keys, you can purchase an unlimited number for around $100.'

My outright hatred for anything Windows 8 is obviously clouding my judgement - surely that line doesn't mean what I think it does?

Not even MS would charge for that - surely????

Voted very strongly for selling England’s state owned forests

Voted very strongly for capping civil service redundancy payments

Voted very strongly for ending financial support for some 16-19 year olds in training and further education

Voted very strongly for university tuition fees

Voted very strongly against increasing the tax rate applied to income over £150,000

Voted very strongly for increasing the rate of VAT

Voted strongly for higher taxes on alcoholic drinks

Should we have expected anything else? Anyone other than a complete and utter wanker would stand out like a sore thumb.

Steal and con your way through your career. If you get caught, slapped wrist and promise to pay it back. No Police involvement.

I can't quite get my head around the above line without thinking that there is something fundamentally wrong with the entire system where our 'leaders' can brazenly flaunt their own elitist agenda in the faces of us minions and we just bow down, shut up then move along.

However the history books tell us a different story when this has happened in the past.

Is this photo PROOF a Windows 7 Start Menu is coming back?

Baron Ebaneezer Wanktrollop III


Why is it every friggin interface known to man thrusts the weather into your face? Am I the only person here who doesn't want a fucking cloud on my desktop or start menu? I'm British - it's always shite outside and I don't want my bloody screen estate taken up with this bollocks, Xbox live tiles on a business phone FFS! etc. etc.

Give me a 'Metro off' checkbox and I may, just may give W8 a second look.

On second thoughts. No I won't.

Sticky Tahr-fy pudding: Ubuntu 14.04 slickest Linux desktop ever

Baron Ebaneezer Wanktrollop III

Re: Head to head

I've been using OS's since DOS - especially all the Windows variants. When I sat down at a Win8 desktop I had to retrain myself on how to do the most basic of functions - so I thought bollocks, why on earth should I have to 'learn' how to use this POS OS.

So I have given Win8 and it's maker the middle finger. Nice knowing you. Clueless morons.

They should have thought about putting some steerable thrusters on the lander to bring the rock into orbit around Terra. Play with it as much as they like then for years on end rather than be stuck with the limited instruments on board for a limited time.

But I'm just an enthusiast with no technical knowledge of this awesomery. Just landing the damn thing on a comet puts my night approach to LAX on Flight Simulator X to shame.

Patent incoming!

I see Apple filing a new patent for an iPhone coated in some strange material that is impervious to solar flares and will therefore continue to work. It won't get a very good signal mind but I suppose that depends on how you hold it......

Hi Dragons,

I'm starting a company which aims to the do the same as ITV, Netflix and LoveFilm only I will force every household to pay the monthly subscription, hmmmm and lets make it double what the competition charge, and if they refuse to pay it - I put them in jail!

PM Cameron leaps aboard Internet of Thingies

How about

Surely the Cockmunching Cameroon would pledge more money towards such an idea. No?

About time

Well if it's better than that overpriced shite that Polycom throw out then I'm all for any solution that can help me avoid having to travel on blighties overcrowded tarmac abortion for a 5 minute meeting.

Bring it on I say, if they want to spy on my meetings they're welcome. In fact, to the test the water I'll regularly get the entire team to burst into a slightly altered rendition of Monty Python's Lumberjack song - 'I'm a kiddy fiddler and I'm OK' - see if that brings the feds down on me.

So we put all the technology gleaned from thousands of years on the planet and leave it to the next race, who will probably need the same amount of time to gain the technology to be able to decipher it.

It's like writing down the instructions for making a key and putting it in a locked box.

Poker ace's vanishing hotel laptop WAS infected by card-shark – F-Secure

Baron Ebaneezer Wanktrollop III

Pffft laptops!

He should have had an iPad. The perp would have had to get on it and either email a copy of the virus to himself or log onto his own Dropbox account, or worse - use iTunes to sync it. Either way, he would have to book a holiday in the same hotel room to have the time.

The only other option I see is to get Jeff Goldblum to upload a virus to it - that always works no matter what OS.

It's true, the START MENU is coming BACK to Windows 8, hiss sources

Re: kde has a start button....

I'm not familiar with an AMD64 app? What is that?

KDE may not be a solution for your requirements, but as your company and therefore its gross income is essentially locked to the Windows OS, regardless of how much of a pile of shite it is, I don't see that as being much of a solution either.

Anyway, I'm off sleuthing for an AMD64 app.....

As a long time PC admin / user, read Amstrad PC1512DD - CGA, I couldn't afford the EGA with all it's splendid colour, I've tried W8 on the desktop and it's complete garbage like most of you say. But I've also tried it on a HP slate which I take it is its native environment and it's ermmmm well garbage. First thing I did after doing all the VTech swipe bollocks was open up WIndows Explorer - touch friendly? Really? Maybe if I filed my fingers down to needle sharp ocelot digits then perhaps I'd reach 5% touch accuracy.

As I've mentioned in other posts, as a long time Mac hater I now have an iMac (eBay I hasten to add) as I've just had it with Windows. All I miss is the ability to play the odd decent game but everything else is the way it should be.

UK fondleslab surge slowing, says sales-sniffing specialist

Baron Ebaneezer Wanktrollop III


I think what with the new Nexus 7, Tesco's Huddle and the Argos, Asda, CPH and Aldi offerings these figures will be hyper inflated by the end of this month.

Even at the moment however I can't see how the sales are less than last year - it doesn't make sense?

PC Fail

PC's have failed because of MS Windows. The act of rolling NT and Windows 98 into one OS has effectively killed them off because unlike a tablet, the OS is too difficult to learn for newbies because it has not been solely designed for the Home market. Add to that the continual virus problem which doesn't plague iPads and Android and it's clear why they are losing ground.

Microsofts late to the party answer to combat this was to release the most humungous turdnova ever seen since The Britass Empire - Vtech 8.1.

My prediction...

It will be a shiny white electronic device packaged in clear film inside a smart white box containing fuck all documentation along with a shabbily manufactured connection lead which will break after a month.

On the day of release, half the population of China will be throwing out sub-standard copies via DHgate, Alibaba and ultimately eBay.

Nobody will want it because it makes you look a nob.

There. Don't say I didn't tell you.

So purely for that solitary factoid - Google+ is an electronic spunktrumpet of a social website - more power to its elbow.
