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.
"meteoric rise and spectacular fall of Microsoft's Windows Operating System" ... what's the share of Windows today ?
I could lose my job simply...
Because El Reg keeps putting nudies on the main page. How old are you ?

Re: its an Acer - no surprise
"Unfortunately, the W3's overall build quality doesn't feel up to par with either of those devices. Clearly under price pressures, Acer has cut a few corners,.."
... no surprise indeed.
Re: These the same Korean Doctors who think that fans are lethal?
Has that study got a billion hits on Youtube?
Re: Something I've never understood
Laptops have become thinner with years, 2;5"HDDs have become thinner as well as parts of those thinner laptops. That's the point.
16 V2s remaining in the world, half a dozen of them in the US.
What a surprise. Von Braun probably had some in his suitcase or did he simply build them in the US?
They needed the technology against the commies, they welcomed the Nazi scientists and protected them for decades.
Re: Line orientation
It doesn't matter whether the ball touches the inside or outside of the line, as long as if it touches the line, it's good. That's the rules in tennis. And that mark is clearly on the line. That being said, you have to trust the umpire on the fact he'll make such errors in good faith and so on both sides.
Re: It's not only one study... it's old stuff.
Anybody at the Reg thinking or writing about "this accepted wisdom" should read the Reg.
reasonable, thoughtful, and moderate post
Here you have it: lets consider this article and leave it as it is; the most normal thing in the world.
Re: IRIS drivers
Update to the latest Cataract.
Girls want to date footballers (you know why, ... not because they are the new role models). Guys want to look like footballers. Footballers got wet hair cause they're interviewed after the match and after the shower... put gel in your hair so you look like a footballer. Footballers have Beats headphones... wear Beats headphones. Footballers give a show of constant cheating in sport... Cheat.
Insult, be a racist twat, ring a colleague cause you spotted a drunk teenager, or even better, take your colleague's wife, bite if you want, It's okay, just a bit of anger management will do for you, cause you're a footballer.
Re: What a lovely end to the perfect night.
You kick yourself for not having bought the car stereo version instead. That would have saved your night and spared a bottle of wine.
Re: On the plus side, SSD prices continue to fall
I can understand you get memory for double the price when added by the manufacturer, but a laptop "with an SSD" will cost you 350 more when the part itself is just worth 50 more! So people won't buy a laptop with an SSD because they don't want to feel scammed.
so you can't say it's been removed.
Parallel with the financial crisis ?
Is this not in a way similar with those (young) folks at Lehman Brother that found out you could sell any financial product and pass the risk to someone else ? How well did it go ? Who paid at the end? Aren't we insured for everything today anyway? Who pays for that when it goes ok? Who gets paid for that when it goes OK? Who pays for that when it all collapses?
Re: GB != Gb
So if time is still volume divided by speed, if a Blue Ray is still 25GB, if a byte is still 8 bits,
50Gb/s becomes 6.25 GB/s, right ? Or in a real world scenario, about 5 GB/second ? And 25GB / (5GB/s) is damned close to 5s. No ?
Re: GB != Gb
Would you please care to do the math for us to show how astronomically far you bring us from 5 seconds ? I'm curious.
And then they invent devices like the Kingston DT160 that you can't hold and push at the same time...
Re: Do we believe this?
More plausible than you really being Spartacus.
Re: planned obsolescence
Also noticed they don't advertise 32" anymore? They want to force bigger screens on us.
Re: who has ever really cared about start up times?
Are you in IT ?
concept of being paid for -good- work.
So how does this help the concept of artists needing/deserving to be paid/making a living, incentive to creation and all that stuff ? All we see is old and rich celebrities getting all the money, attention, bizz buzz for things they are not doing anymore (creating) since decades. Who's in the spotlight today ? Crap artists from today and old rockers from the eighties (you know, those filling the Mega Arena in your town in 2012 and 2013). Where are the good artists from today ? Why can't they make a decent living ? Because nobody cares? Because people are fighting for old folks to get richer? Is it easier than find and promote new artists? Probably.
Re: Resistance is futile
"Increase" doesn't mean it goes "from zero to something" nor that it suddenly becomes enough to boil metal surely. The end of the world was two days ago, get over it.
Accurate title needed.
Providing energy "for 99.9% of the time" is not the same as providing "99.9% of the energy".
While we're at it, its not clear how we keep "CO2" power production ready to be used for 9hours a year (0,1%)... that is, not contiguous hours.
