Re: Of course, if Jobs had invented a cure for H.I.V., the Register would still hate him
You would hate him too if you were denied access to special events and got the cold shoulder at every request for comments from the glorious Trendy Fanboi's Corporation of Cupertino because you wouldn't openly speak at every opportunity of the great achievements of the eternal CEO.
Paypal isn't accepting bitcoin. They are accepting real money from Coinbase when you give Coinbase your bitcoins. It's the same unnecessary middleman scheme that Overstock, Newegg, Dell and others are doing. It's just going to be a matter of time before coinbase and bitpay runs out of VC capital and the whole "we accept bitcoin" thing implodes.
Why dig for gold when you can just sell defective shovels?
They are essentially renting magic money machines that they don't want to run themselves. If you can't figure out the problem with that, you are probably a bitcoiner.
Good to know...
I'll make sure to get high off some other dealer's supply.
New spin on an old prank?
I guess this is the new burning paper bag with poop in it.
Another roll of the dice?
What's an extra few million in lawyers fees if you can try again for that billion dollar jackpot...
Well this is certainly a blue ball moment...
Now we will never know if Intel was giving discounts to OEMs for not using AMD chips.

Re: It's the lies that are the problem
It's not "many" Americans, just the loud assholes. They are a small minority, albeit an VERY vocal one. It's still entertaining to watch though, like watching a man hit himself in the nut with a hammer while he is complaining nobody is doing anything about it.
It's a magic show
Something tells me that someone sneaked in and entered "password" on the computer with the fancy do-dads while the cameraman slowly walked and typed on the computer in the other room.
He wouldn't happen to be a teacher at a clown college would he?
we just give Dave and Jon each a 5th of whiskey and toss them into an arena with miscellaneous blunt objects before this devolves into some boring Peewee Herman-like "I know you are but what am I!" crybaby fest.

Seriously. If this keeps up we will all start spelling like an AOL chatroom full of 12 year olds.
The Nokia nGage has the support of EA behind it and it flopped miserably.
Let's have the government help.
We just need to convince lawmakers that only basement dwelling nerds who would even know what IPv6 is look at porn and "force" all porn sites to use IPv6.
By the end of the year, 95% of the internet will be using IPv6. The elected mouth breathers get their feel good "thinking of the children" law and we get a slightly less goofy network protocol.
Everybody Wins!... sort of.
Now we can have some high tech homeless people now!
What's the matter Dana? Did they make fun of your furry balloon fetish webcomic?
Wiis do in fact have a fan. A quiet one, but a fan none the less.
I think the "unspecified hacking techniques" are what the police say when they couldn't find the flashy graphical hacking programs they see in movies.
