I think I'm growing tired of The Reg's constant sneery and critical attitude towards everything - it used to be strictly reserved for Oracle/Ellison articles, but I've seen it spreading to pretty much every story where someone or something hasn't beaten all known records and outperformed everyone's expectations.
I'm all for jokes and criticism where deserved (or even marginally deserved), but all too often I'm just left thinking "what?", and picturing The Reg's teenage team hunched over a screen in a bout of cackling at their latest funny funny.
Meh, maybe I'm growing up.
