back to article Farewell, Reg: This hack is hanging up her Apple jacket

It's a fond KTHNXBAI to Register readers as your humble hack heads for the door after 18 months as a Vulture, leaving behind some stale doughnuts, a promotional frisbee and taking with me some memories - great ones. Writing stories for the bumper 7.3 million Reg readers has been a privilege, and I've enjoyed reading your …

Re: Good luck

Erm, she said she'll be leaving it behind? Are you trying to steal it? Are you a secret apple fan?

Anna, here's a pint for amusing headlines at the very least!

Clearly that jacket is Apple property. I'm sure they have trademarked blue denim.

Re: Good luck

Still better than:

"This jacket was licensed to one wearer and associated with one chair to hang upon. You cannot bring the jacket with you to a new chair. You may leave the jacket with your chair for a new reporter, as long as you leave all lint in the pockets. If the new reported gets a new chair, the license is invalid, and they must pay for a new jacket license to go with the new chair."

Apparently she is moving it to something involving tentacles, my initial thoughts involved a speciality Japanese form of cartoon, but sadly probably not :(

No, thank you

I, for one, would like to thank you for providing such a great service to us readers. You have both entertained and informed us in what could be considered to be tech's most headline-worthy year.

I wish you all the best for the future.

I thought - just for a moment, mind - that I would quite like to own a jacket like that.

Fortunately the moment passed.

Re: Ashamed

You need to wash your brain out with soap for thinking that even for a nanosecond.

My immediate, instinctive reaction - from the instant the photons from that picture hit my retinas - was that I would not be seen dead and rotting with that jacket anywhere in the vicinity of my office, let alone actually on the back of my chair, or - [suppress gag reflex] - in actual contact with my person!

Take care and bye

I got a lot of upvotes for my dodgy jokes in the comments of your Apple stories over the years (well year and a half).

Have a farewell Paris for old times sake!

I've never read the WSJ, and have no impending desire to start now, but I'm presuming somebody does, and they will be none the worse for having an ex-Rej hack on board - so best of luck with it.

Awwww....

Finally we meet an author who obviously highly thinks of us and actually calls us Reg Readers instead of the commonly used commentards. And just when that bright news flash manages to hit me do I realize that you're leaving. Aaaawwww :-)

Anyway, although Apple isn't really my thing I did read several of those articles you referred to and I agree with some of the others; they were very pleasant to read. I hope your next job (if that's the case) will give you as much pleasure & satisfaction as this one has apparently managed to do. Because having some fun at your job and the things you do is IMO priceless.

Reporting on a company that refuses to call you back must have been the biggest challenge a reporter could face. Yet, you handled it well and still got the facts out there.

All the best in your future endeavours.

Anna,

Don't forget to get the WSJ Apple press conference invites, and pop back to Reg Towers to wave them in their faces and gloat.

Tatty-Bye.

Vultures guarantee WSJ, Bloomberg financial stability

Wait... Are you saying Tim Cook will start returning your phone calls now? Unbelievable...

Sorry to see you go. However, with Reg hacks going to places like Bloomberg and WSJ I have high hopes for the future of the financial press. Best of luck, and thanks for all the apples. I do read WSJ on occasion, will be looking for your byline.

I hope your new office has at least an entertaining a view as the El Reg office at Leicester Square (and as wide a selection of food suppliers around it :-) ). I also hope that your new boss has the same twisted sense of humour that makes them hand out El Reg logo-ed paper notebooks to technical people :).

All the best at your new job, and good luck!
