Joy Division get the Playmobil treatment

Unless, of course, the transmitter was concealed in the body of the instrument, wired to the output internally.

Apple iPad

Thumb Down

You're right.

People with no money to waste certainly shouldn't buy this. If they need a computer then they should get something cheaper, and if they want a flashy new toy they should make sure they can afford it. I suppose next you'll be reminding people that they don't have to buy a Jaguar as they can walk to work.

Your only problem with the iPad seems to be that it's expensive. That's only a problem if someone is forcing you to buy one. They're not.

Lufthansa offers iPhone 4G loser free beer

Jobs Halo


Well I can track my current iPhone 3Gs using GPS via the MobileMe service - it stands to reason if they can remote wipe it they can also track it - but conspiracy or not, once it was leaked it was probably in Apple's best interests to keep quiet. If the fuzz had kicked Gizmodo's door down that would have been irrefutable proof of their scoop, so Apple chose to wait it out, which turned out not to be a great idea either, but by keeping quiet people are still talking about it.

As for this article, why are you saying this is PROBABLY a PR stunt by LH? What else exactly do you think it might be?

Too thick to boil an egg? Buy 'em preboiled

OH MY GOD! What's next, premade sandwiches? Imagine that, people too stupid to put some ham and cheese between some bread!

MS puts up $250K bounty for Conficker author

Gates Halo


Good to see that MS' virus protection involves waiting for the virus to infected millions and then try and find the guy that made it. Most companies would just fill software holes quickly and maybe even develop an embedded antivirus that works, but it's good to see that MS do it the modern way.

Brit couple divorce over Sadville infidelity

Joe Flynn


The actual reason they split up is because the guy said he didn't love her anymore. And he was talking romantically and sexually with a real person, using an electronic medium. How would you feel if your partner was sending dirty texts to someone else?

Catholic priests cane YouTube over blasphemous vids

Joe Flynn

Hang on.

If this video is removed, Youtube is effectivley saying that as a company, they believe in transubstantiation. I'm sure protestants find that also very offensive.

BOFH: Burying the hatchet

Joe Flynn


This thread of everyone responding to Jim The Boss as if he was serious, really makes me sad. A lot of ID10T errors in this userbase.

Not impressed.

This will sink without a trace when I release my patented Tension Sheet.

Apple sued over iPhone caller ID

Joe Flynn

To everyone

Everyone who's said "but thats the same as every other phone!!"

It's likely that every other manufacturer has licensed this patent already.

I agree with AC. Don't put him down just because you think he's below you, a common criminal, or not a 'fine' artist.

Rebellion yeilds good things, try and name any art, music, philosophy, or politic that you aprecciate and then try and tell me it didn't come from doing something that few people accepted.

Car crash driver blames pterodactyl

Sounds like something you'd see on a hollywood blockbuster: the officers of course didn't see the guy driving through the tropics of pangea avoiding dinos, explosions and tar pits, before he barrel rolled through a time rift and hit that lampost in washington.

Barron Hilton donates fortune to charity

Joe Flynn
Thumb Down

Yeah, right.

Of course you all realise she's already made a few hundred million herself, from product deals, TV appearances, perfumes, rolling around eating burger kings, and even using her phone and showing up to clubs?! She's never exactly gonna go hungry.

You'll have to wave blindly to tune it in, and sit perfectly still if you want to keep in on a channel.

Douglas Adams has warned us about this.

Get a passport, enjoy casual sex with foreigners

Joe Flynn


The text speak adverts annoyed me, but they, and the similar radio ads, get the point across. I bet most kids who need to apply for a sole bearer passport now know they should do it well in advance of travel.

I know I do...

Jason Bourne disses James Bond

Joe Flynn


I wonder which PR guy wrote that little tirade for him?

I agree that Bond is a cock.

However, Bourne is worse.

Oh no! Who am I? Wahhhh!
