If this is sarcastic, it is an excellent reply. I mean if Mr Lowlife has the right to do it why not J. Woods?

Re: 150% more?
What numbers do you use? Or are you just assuming that the quote is wrong and that it cannot be 250%?
Pocket Pint Collapsible Pint Glass
This is not really new. I had one more than 40 years ago.
"It's OK, because he disconnected the jammer" as soon as he learned
... that Verizon had found that the device was blocking reception ?
Re: It was his own fault
The funny (?) thing is that he hurts himself the first time then tries it again. 40 years old...
Ouch, this thing is really sharp and armful, lets throw it in the crowd! When fans hit the fans.
Economic espionage imposes great costs on American businesses
As well, economic espionage by the US imposes great costs on worldwide businesses. Or is it not fair to say? ... Echelon?
Re: a light switch that cuts all power to the light...
How do you dim power to a LED lamp but still leave enough for the speaker that "provides 13 watts"?
Re: Care to offer a link to that report?
It reminds me of this
Microsoft might hire him.
They're still searching for a way to kill XP.
When the disc gets replaced, it's first unusable, then it's gone, so is the data on it. Where do you see value?
I don't see 1 in 10 people able to choose their OS or hardware, they'll just go with what's in sale in the shop. And they are where the big money comes from.
If "all you need is a screen" and it's only connected to the HDMI cable and the battery is "optionnal", where does the power come from? From your wrist? I recon I could work longer with a 128Gig SSD than wit one AA battery.
They say "the mouse pad can work as a charger"... to the optional battery ? So you'd need the mouse pad. I guess the mouse pad is itself connected to a PSU, you'd need the PSU. What next?
Re: "...police, who are working a theory that a gang might be involved..."
Even the Register still think he was a she.
Re: Ultimate Fanboy
Is there an estimation of how much iThingies the average fanboy owns for "personal usage"? Probably a bit less than that. But with so many Jesus phones, he must have been awaited by his accomplices as the messiah.
"those that know what they want in terms of functionality (the geeks)"
Geeks don't know what they want in terms of functionality, they want everything.The choice could possibly be made for christmas 2019. As well, geeks knowing what "they" want "for someone else" is a very debatable concept.
But what does this actually do ?
When out of 10 "excellent PC apps", only 2 (Notepad++ & VLC) are actually helping you to DO something, while the remaining 80% are only improving your OS in some ways, it says a lot about wasted time.
re: revenge porn can affect anyone
Children... "who have had sexually explicit pictures of themselves posted online" is obviously considered an other problem that comes under already existing legislation.
Re: Irish Boy Band? Maybe twenty years ago
Make it 34 years (the "Boy" album).
Re: Dual SIM
Most Wiko phones are dual SIM.
I'm OK with that.
We've learned to speak properly, count, orientate, interact with each other, climb trees AND use/understand technology. And we'll live far longer than they will. I feel sorry for them.
Windows, not on Linux and OS X machines
What about Chrome OS then ?
Re: My prediction...
That's why they're also called pen drives.They gather with pens somewhere.
In other words, you can have a much bigger scale of values when beginning with 1 than with 9.
Example [1 to 1.999] and [9 to 9.999] ...feel the restriction?
Those retailers prices are not natural.
The perils of having Panasonic as a partner???
So in 2006 bad batteries were made by Sony. Now they make the mistake of having them manufactured by someone else. Ain't it easy to point such an obvious mistake...afterwards?
Re: Not being a signatory [...] it appears our fellow EU citizens don't trust us.
Could it be that the 1st part of your phrase is one of the reasons for the 2nd part?
Or Vista machines that die are replaced with they little brother in the cupboard that was still working at the time, rather than with a new shi*y Win8 machine (replace * with "n" or "t"). Or XP gets installed on new machines as it's easier to work around the oem limitations.
Do you mean the article misses a 2nd Page that warns that comments like "the author is evil" will be blocked?
If that's the whole point, I think yes, a three pages article is an overreaction.
Re: The Wallons, maybe
You forgot Brussels, probably on purpose, but this was not your point. Lets say "the french speaking". Then probably the english word "french" itself derives from the flemish "franse" as said in West Flanders ("frensje").
+The best translation for dealer is "distributeur" which it can be used in wider contexts. Or "donneur" for those playing card games.
There is no such thing as a "Clean Pull" liver.
one should always know better than to buy a refurnished or 'clean pull' hard drive
Studies show that a used hard drive is not more prone to fail than a new hard drive. Of course one can always try to sell you a known bad drive.

Re: average human hearing at around the 48Khz neighborhood.
No. The accepted average is 20Hz to 20kHz for an adult (wider for younger folks). which makes 40kHz (double of 20kHz) a starting point for sampling. But the whole "48kHz" discussion starts from a typo as there is no mention of kHz in the article. I made a joke but got down voted.
Re: In 2014?! A new service "offering" 48Khz?!?!?
Can YOU even hear sounds above 48kHz ?
Re: Do I sense
Why not ask the REG if they had nothing better (and IT related) to publish ? Why not ask yourself and me if...
Plead guilty, case closed.
Are people changing or is Justice doomed to evolve the opposite way of "civilization"?
Re: "the article does not say that an iPhone has ever stopped a bullet"
Dead guys were holding it wrong.
Thanks for leading us out of all the cliches.
Now... what do you think of the boobies that lead to this article from the front page ?
You fail !
There's a "Pedantic grammar nazi alert" icon for that sort of rant.
Please change the title
from "mobile" to "smart" phone. I got a proper mobile phone.
again and again... units !
Anyone reading the articles before publishing ?
You don't "consume 2.5 volts".
Re: Simple test:
Young children can focus as close as ~11cm, which is quite further than anyone's nose (that I know). Of course it goes downhill with age.
You have to be prepared for an upgrade to Windows 9 which will probably take ~170Gig for a clean install.
Quite a bland and unemotional review.
"They aren't exciting. They're just iPhones". Ain't it enough for you that ElReg manages to write so much articles about them ?
Re: How thin?!
I've tested chocolate beer. No thanks. I'm not expecting more of beer spreadable... Mixing everything is not always a good idea.
Re: Put my CV through but I have yet to hear.
Can you say "services company focused on empowering customers in the activities they value most" without laughing ?
Slightly biased article.
