Seagate promises second fault fix in 24 hours

jim
Thumb Down

Free upgrade

How dare Seagate call it a FREE upgrade.

They produced a flawed product to begin with and now offer a way of mending it.

Shame on you Seagate. It is NOT free but essential to save your face.

Doner kebabs: Death wrapped in pitta bread

Thumb Up

One meal a day

"..98 per cent of daily salt, nearly 1000 calories"

That means that you only need to eat a Doner a day to get your daily allowances.

Excellent. That'll save on the cooking at home then :)

Who else has UAVs?

Very good Boeing. Go to the top of the class.

Can you tell me what other countries have UAVs which you will use this laser to shoot down?

See; a fundamental flaw in your research. I could have saved you $157 million.

Why don't Apple just admit that they've messed up and recall all 5.5 million iphone 3Gs.

WTF...Ferryman

WTF....This asshole Dr Ferryman has once again conned stupid EU governments run by Luddite idiots of which Gordon Brown is one big one.

EASY....Just thrust a pen/biro through the camera lens.

If everyone on board did this on every flight the airline would go bust in days due to the replacement cost.

BT profits nothing to phone home about

Competition

Funny how BT did so well BEFORE they had any competition.

Motherboard?

Went into a PC World the other day and within a nano-second was asked by a spotty teenager if I needed any help.

I said: "Yes...I am looking for a motherboard".

He said: "What"?

I repeated what I'd said and he went off to ask somoene what I meant.

That's the reason why PC World is crap and not performing. At last some knob at the top has realised that you have to spend money on training. It's only taken them 10 years to work that out !

DWP still sending out passwords and discs together

jim

Is that so?

A DWP spokeswoman sent us the following statement:

"We take the security of individuals' data extremely seriously".

Well obviosly you don't or this would not have happened. Doh...

My god, some of my hard earned tax goes towards employing these idiotic Civil Servants. What a bunch of low IQ dorks.

Poor little pilot

Why did you look at the beam you idiot if you thought it would blind you?

You should have your pesky flying licence revoked immediately and never revalidated for putting the lives of your colleagues on the heliocpter with you at risk.

Shame on you Pig Flyer.

Michael C....The Perfect Person

Well Michael C aren't you the perfect person?

You now have no illegal files on your PC but think you have the right to preach to others about tihngs you illegally did a "While" ago.

Why don't you crawl away and preach to others who give a phuck about your little sermons. Why do you think anyone is interested in what you have/don't have on your PC?

If I was the RIAA I would track you down and sue the be-jesus outta you.

I have downloaded hunderds of tracks on P2P and have never had the problems you mention. Maybe you are better suited to playing Solitaire rather than attempting big boys stuff as you clearly are inadequate.

Missed the obvious

The old farts at this meeting missed the obvious easy option.

A model speedboat capable of carrying 250LB of explosive with GPS on board.

This boat could be released on its merry way from ANYWHERE along the UK coast, without fear of being seen, right next to the wall next to the House of Commons.

BOOOOMMMMMM

Easy peasy. No flying. No payload weight problems etc...

Airline pilot sacked for 777 Top Gun stunt

I hope it scared the Management shitless.

If they can't handle a lowpass then they shouldn't be part of an airline.

Get out and be a Manager for Spud-U-Like instead.

F2S

I was with Freedom To Surf for over 3 years.

Very happy UNTIL PIPEX took over.

jim

What a load of Bo**ox

Well the company rep would say that. God help his company if Taser guns were outlawed. The company would go bust overnight.

Oh and dropping dead immediately from electric shock. I don't think so. The electric chair can prove that theory wrong and that uses massive amounts of energy.
