It must be nice being right, even when you're wrong.
"The Reg believes that [the] mole knows what he's talking about..."
Oh wait, that's from the article published yesterday, where you were positive that it was Apple's idea.
Now you're quite sure that it's not:
"So says a mole cited by Cnet, and we're not at all surprised, for a number of reasons."
I'd accept this as simply Rik and Tony disagreeing, except that they've used "The Reg" and the collective "we". A responsible editor simply wouldn't allow that through unless they wanted the writer to put forth the paper's position.
