OH: “So have you read ‘The Female Eunuch’?” “Nah, it’s a girl’s book.”

via Plume for Android

OH: “Just because I suck at it doesn’t mean I don’t like it.”

via Plume for Android

Stop your whinging, it’s free drink and some food.

via Plume for Android

@SnarkyPlatypus How dare you! This is difficult and dangerous work.

via Plume for Android in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

So, Intel says the new thing is better, the media says it’s good that the new thing is better in good ways. Applause. Drinks.

via Janetter for Mac

And @R_Chirgwin’s “question” was taken as a statement.

via Janetter for Mac

Choosing not to say something because it would probably be actionable defamation. But it’s OK, @R_Chirgwin has a “question” now.

via Janetter for Mac

GB rejects questioner assertion that there’s not much innovation. Points to form factors, apps etc. More innovation than years.

via Janetter for Mac

Answer is to look at “personal computing” not “personal computers”, and they are powering new tablets etc.

via Janetter for Mac

Second question is where the desktop market goes when people are buying tablets and smarthphones.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s about “the amount of choice and this great leap forward” for those who haven’t upgraded in a while.

via Janetter for Mac

First question is what’s the impetus for consumers to go in and buy a new computer.

via Janetter for Mac

Canned presentation ends. Media Q&A begins.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Leighlo: A smartphone replaying video maybe? Or a tablet, even? [Worth checking out, eh? ]

via Janetter for Mac

The face-recognition biometric login can’t be fooled by a photo ‘cos it looks for movement, apparently.

via Janetter for Mac

So “2-in-1” will be Intel’s marketing keyword for 2013+. Are you ready for that, people?

via Janetter for Mac

Here’s another one! The Ultra HD video looks sharper than HD video. “Australia is perfect for 4k video.” Take that, Shelbyville!

via Janetter for Mac

RT @gusworldau: “One of these laptops is the size of a laptop.” Well, quite. [Words. I love them.]

via Janetter for Mac

We’re about to see a game demo, and I reckon it’ll turn out that the new one is better than the old one. Just a hunch.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jeamland: All the reviews and analysis back that up, too. [That’s re battery life. They have to. Consumer law FTW. ]

via Janetter for Mac

NewtonMark Apparently NBN makes imagination flow in schools, even though it isn’t built yet, and even though schools already have internet. @DBCDEgov

via Tweetbot for Mac (retweeted on 4:19 PM, Jun 12th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

4th gen compared with 3rd gen does “50% better battery life in general”, says GB. Can’t see the fine print on screen.

via Janetter for Mac

GB just apologised for saying the word “transistor”. But guys, YOU MAKE PROCESSOR CHIPS. You’re EMBARRASED by what you do?

via Janetter for Mac

Was that the first “unique”? Another drink!

via Janetter for Mac

RT @zzap: You sure you don’t have views “on” something? [SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP.]

via Janetter for Mac

He said “going forward”! Drink!

via Janetter for Mac

“Touch is Everything and Changing Everything”, says the current slide. And Greg has said exciting about 20 times now.

via Janetter for Mac

With 2-in-1 laptop/tablet machines, “We’re moving from an era of ‘or’ to an era of ‘and’.

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe they should drink less coffee.

via Janetter for Mac

Intel’s bloke, GB (Greg Bryant) says it’s an exciting time to be in IT. It’s always an exciting time in everyone’s industry.

via Janetter for Mac

Of course there’ll be ne new technical information today, ‘cos engineers have had the chips for months to build new computers.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. I’m at the launch of Intel’s 4th Generation Core ships, “Haswell” being the code name.

via Janetter for Mac

You don’t have views AROUND something, people, you have views OF something. FFS, “around” is not an all-purpose preposition!

via Janetter for Mac

Intel’s video — of course — has too much whizziness, too much bass, and it’s too loud ‘cos the speakers are clippingre

via Janetter for Mac

A real whistleblower would blow like a man. No wait.

via Plume for Android

What the fuck does where someone is standing got to do with how “real” a whistleblowers they are?

via Plume for Android

RT @AriFleischer Real whistleblowers don’t flee the country.[HAHAHAHA!]

via Plume for Android

The bureaucratic problems having been dealt with, it’s time for me to head to the MCA for Intel’s launch. Zoom.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @purserj: @stilgherrian have you checked your entitlements? [Yes, and I’m entitled to them.]

via Janetter for Mac

chris_bloke Yesterday upon the stair
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I think he’s from the NSA

Organising my entitlements. Sorry, amenities.

via Janetter for Mac

Being recognised, being upgraded.

via Plume for Android

RT @sylmobile 4G is good. [Sheesh! Four grams is way too much for me.]

via Plume for Android

@chris_stevenson @NewtonMark @SenatorLudlam You’re right, and I don’t know of a published real example, only hypothetical.

via Plume for Android in reply to chris_stevenson

I have no plans to get off at Redfern, @drunkenmadman, let’s be clear about this.

via Janetter for Mac

@mbushong @Beaker As long as the videos were in black and white, and narrated in Czech with Russian subtitles.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mbushong

mbushong @stilgherrian @Beaker What would a hipster geek do? Declare that privacy is so 2000s and move on to ironic desk lamp videos?

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 2:19 PM, Jun 12th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

@chris_stevenson Hang on, isn’t there that metadata example of the German guy who pulled his file? @SenatorLudlam refers to that one.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chris_stevenson

RT @jpwarren: @stilgherrian Do true geeks also own kilts? [Sometimes. Sometimes they just log into Kilts as a Service.]

via Janetter for Mac

normative Now, I know what you’re gonna say. “What if the skull implanted nanobombs are abused?” But ANY system of criminal punishment can be abused.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 2:07 PM, Jun 12th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

Ludlam… Brandis… whichever, they all feel the same in the dark.

via Janetter for Mac

A true geek would never be smug that THEY knew about NSA and mock those being shocked. A true geek would be glad people are learning stuff.

dobes “Grandpa, how many times did you ‘a/s/l?’ during the great cyber war of 2014?”

via Hotot for Chrome (retweeted on 1:56 PM, Jun 12th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

@alfmcm @Colvinius @Gibbot5000 Idiot. I wasn’t claiming that was “new:” news. I was pointing to interesting background on current events.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to alfmcm

RT @dobes: actual headline: Cyber war ‘could kill millions ’ [FINALLY SOME SENSE! Ping @gattaca]

via Janetter for Mac

The original 1946 UKUSA Agreement on signals intelligence was declassified in 2010. Fun reading. nationalarchives.gov.uk/ukusa/

@jperlow @georgevhulme I think the ideal regime is the tequila AND the yellow pills but YMMV.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jperlow

Fuck you and your so-called nuance, @jdub.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jperlow Every time I get an email titled “ZDNet contact form” I take a shot of tequila. And that is BEFORE reading the contents. [Plan!]
