Maybe it was an Atomic transaction. Did you buy anything else or did you order it in Isolation? The packaging should be be Durable at least, and customer service at the El Reg grotto is nothing if not Consistent.

Why do you think IDS's Universal Credits system was a £700m write-off?
Re: What is a market anyway?
"Money isn't everything, despite what TW seems to want to think."
But in virtually every column, TW states that doing more of what you want - if you want Facebitch and gain more time to spend doing Facebitch, one his favourite examples - then you're better off. So why do you state that TW thinks money is everything?

Maybe we need an Alanis Morisette icon. To be doubly ironic.

Re: How Widespread?
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.
Re: Can't trust the survey
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.
Re: Should it not say?
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.
Re: Excuse me while I revel in this a rich vein of irony
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.

Re: Apple NEVER pays for product placement...
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.
Re: And EE data is/was unreliable
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.

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?
Apple must be REALLY worried about this problem

Re: Ha!!! Henderson, Anderson ,Sanderson, whetever the hell your name is
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.
