Nah, the average punter aint that clever / stupid*

... who the fuck wants to use SharePoint or office 365 as a document management system?
@Stretch, are you a bus or taxi driver? This is the wrong forum, I think you were looking for the Daily Mail
... maybe they orchestrated the attacks to prop up boxing day sales of the Wii U.
“The ability to test driverless cars at scale, when married to the UK’s unique strengths in transport technologies and urban planning...." - WTF... Seriously?
He's got a transport problem, he's too broke too eat......
...is the local Domino's hiring?
Now be honest - if there ever was an inmate that all the other cons would avoid whilst he was picking up the soap.....

My (very) old core i3 laptop (Win 7, 64 bit) - with a duff battery - lasts for nearly three hours using Firefox, and well under two using Chrome.
If I let my son stay up all evening watching Minecraft videos or playing Roblox (browser based game) on my i7 desktop PC (Win 8 Pro, 64 bit), the fans max out (and the bedroom turns into a sauna) using Chrome but remains relatively cool'n'quiet using Firefox.
Two different machines, two different configs, two different OS's two different browsers. The only component causing trouble is Chrome.
Any survey that says either EE, Vodafone, Three or o2 are #1 at anything can't be trusted
Near where I live the verges are full of these already. The local tramps must be steeped in cat-repulsion knowledge.
I'd go with "You've paid hundreds over the odds for a bit of bling. Don't quibble over a few quid now, you tight bastard" - but it doesn't quite fit on the button.
Hell, yeah - ever since the last major version came out, I have to figure out, every time I open it, how to transfer mp3's from my pc to my ipod. Not even muscle memory is enough to get me through.
..what excuse has he got for turning iOS into the biggest fucking bag of wank the world has ever seen?
MS is trying hard to make VS look more awful with each release - It only makes sense to take on Java if VS degrades into Eclipse, too.
Even between PHP and C# ?

I can't work out if you're being sarky or not. Of course every spy agency is going have stacks of Dells. What else are they going to use? Samsung chromebooks? Acer laptops? A 16 year-old kid might think Jack Bauer would look cool toting a twelve-pound Alienware gaming laptop, but a 13" Dell is more his style. The stacks of Dell hardware are probably the only realistic thing portrayed in programmes like 24.
I was driving back through Nottingham at the weekend. My son, using an iPad 3 with a Three 3G sim, was watching his favourite Minecraft videos on Youtube in HD - no stuttering.
Meanwhile, I had my HTC One on EE 4G, paired with the car stereo, trying - and failing miserably - to stream internet radio. When EE is working properly, it's great, but it's far, far too spotty.
The second my contract is up finishing with them.
rounded filed-off corners. You talk in one end. You listen at t'other. You poke the bit in the middle. Apart from prettying it up, there's really fuck-all you can do with it, design wise.
"Me typing password into google"
"Me typing password at work"
"Me typing password into online banking"
"Me typing password into amazon"
There, that ought to do it
You do know what FIAT is an acronym, don't you?
Fixed It Again, Then?
"I've caught you red handed coming out from behind the bike sheds! Hand over that iPad immediately and go and stand in the Naughty Corner until your Surface reboots"
"But Dad - I was only smoking!"
"Oh, OK. Sorry son, I thought you were doing something bad"
You imply that you spend a lot of time staring at peoples bottoms. Is it really "your campus", or do you get chased away a lot?
if they've swallowed their pride and agreed to speak to el reg about it.
Fuck me, that's a yawn just waiting to happen. I'll be in the pub, ta
That doesn't work. I find that my wife gets extremely sticky some time after I've used the bondage tape on her.
...as office cubicles with rounded corners. Patent
You will. You will be made to. And if you continue to resist, your name will be added to the official list of dissenters.
Then you've got bigger problems.
All three of them
But I don't want my home-office to look like the bedroom of a spotty teenager.
Don't worry, as long as the lasers are being used as indicators then they'll never get fired.
And anyone representing a startup and using the word "disrupt" is a complete and utter c**t

Psychological Injury? "What has been seen, cannot be unseen?"
... tweet "on way to holiday in Penzance! #Suckers"... turn around, drive due north a few hundred miles...
Unless I missed the bit about requiring to go through customs when you visit Scotland (from England).
My surname is Cope. COPE. It must be one of the easiest-to-spell surnames in the english language. It is not:
Cup, Cop, Copp, Coup, Coop, Coope, Coupe, Coppe, Copper, Couper, Cooper, Copi, Copa, Coper (close I suppose!) or Copy or any of those derivations beginning with the letter K when speaking to an east european call center.
Ewwww! Wirelessly rechargeable vibe rack?! (fetches dirty mac)
Not too dumb to subpoena el reg for your IP address though, so unless you posted through TOR you could well still be stuffed.....
How does the hard drive know how many bay-siblings it has? Is it somehow self-aware?
I can sort 'em out, and salt away a decent profit
Forgle is short'n'sweet
Your typical el reg reader wants swearing, bad puns, pedantry etc.
Computer: "What you like to do now Dave?"
Dave: "Write a letter"
Computer: "Would that be in Office 2010, Office 2013, Office 365, WordPad, LibreOffice......"
Dave: "Any. The first. I don't care"
Computer: "To which First are you inferring? President? Birthday?"
Dave "The First Office Version!"
Computer: "I do not have have Office 1 Installed"
Dave: "I want to write a letter using Office 2010"
Computer: "Office 365 is the current version. Would you prefer to use that instead"
Computer: "Would you like to add a heading to your letter?"
Computer: "Please tell me your heading"
Dave: "Gimme back my fucking mouse pointer and icons"
Computer: "I do not understand the word gimme"
Dave: [cocks handgun]
Panda's Palace! Those hand-powered carts were fantastic! Plus, the big arcades opposite the Embassy introduced me to Nemesis, Starbike, Jackal, Double Dragon, Toobin', 720 etc. And no-one, and I do mean no-one, could knock off my high scores on Mappy. Pity they're just full of gambling machines and the odd big cabinet now.
For much less money, visit Skegness Pier and have a go on the thirty year old Simulator Ride!
