Less Ad's than The Register
I see far more ads when I visit the Register than when I go on Facebook..Can we clarify who is the "Ad bloated" one here ?
Make a deposit into the account to make up the shortfall and bring it up to a £30 credit.... then withdraw the lot.
Surely that would work ?
Happened with iPad 2, but Apple loathe to admit it
I had a brand new iPad 2 in September that had an effective wireless range of about 3 feet...Apple forums are full of people having the same issue and being told by Apple Staff it was their router at fault. Took mine into Apple store and it couldn't even see the instore Apple WiFi..they changed it without any problems, but denied any knowledge of an issue. I suspect there have been some high failure rate issues since last year with the Wifi chips or something that Apple will not admit too. Bad batch or something.
2nd hand market keeps money flowing into new games
Without the 2nd hand game market, would punters have cash to spend on other titles ?
Not everyone can afford new, but for some users being able to sell games on gives new cash to invest in new titles.
For the Car Market analogists....imagine if you had no market to sell your old car, you'd have nothing to contibute to the next new one....
Is it with a touch of irony that underneath this story I see a text advert for 750Mb of data browsing with Orange Business ?...shouldn't that be 0Mb ?
Re "Why hate Sony and not Bertelsman"
..Who said we don't ?...the story was about Sony...not Bertelsman...
Couldn't have happened to a nicer(sic) company
..Haven't bought anything Sony related since the Rootkit fiasco,,
No mention of any facilities for Hearing impaired?..
..I was expecting a comprehensive review, No mention if subtitles are available on streaming content, or if there were any buffering issues at peak times. This has told me very little above what the product offerings are.
Didn't work in Belgium...
..perhaps it's the 'cash' transaction that needs removing....the more trackable the transaction is etc... As for shipping abroad, well if we can reduce/kill the domestic trade at least the police will have only one area to investigate.
Regulation is needed urgently
It should be a priority to enforce strict controls on dealing in scrap. Selling scrap without proof of ID and source along with a compulsory registration scheme for dealers would be a good start.
On your CV?... " I was a codebreaker for GCHQ"
..And if you do put it on your CV, any employer following it up will be met with .. "No we can't confirm he/she worked here..that would be a matter of National security".... [Cue everyone putting GCHQ on their CV because it can't be proved].
Best line of the piece...
"..the Daleks went with a pleasingly retro saucer/conservatory hybrid..." *Splutters tea*
He drives a ...
He drives a Range Rover..therefore, in his mind, he is above the law anyway...
"We are making key, targeted moves as we align operations in support of our network-centric platform strategy,"
This is the kind of verbal rubbish-speak that companies need to stop.
But it seems CEO's amd senior managers sprout this garbage and applaud each other for it.
"We failed and are trying to work out what to do next" would be a good alternative
I had a different one
Mine was from "Mr Edward John (FBI SPECIAL AGENT) " and claimed that someone tried to imposonate me to claim my lottery prize !
Even better, I was to contact a "Mr Sam Bank" in Nigeria to confirm my identity...oh, and send 350 Dollars too...
>She said: "I can't bear to think about the body scanner thing. I'm totally traumatised.<
..and would like a large sum of compensation as well I bet....
Traumatised ??....Good grief, get a grip.
I'm Deaf...but not offended by FG
I'm Deaf....and I love Family Guy*...Typical political correct reaction. Always somebody else getting offended on your behalf.
Bring it On !!!
* Subtitles...Alrightttt... !
..If Arnie gets the job, expect less lawsuits and more 'Terminations'
Could the microwave ray be reflected and cause the offending unit to self destruct?
@ Jim Carter
@ Jim Carter .....LOL
Also...I take it Mr Brown is getting it all replaced on 'expenses'...Clinique isn't cheap
Blackadder all over again
Reminds me of the episode in Blackadder Goes Forth where General Melchett acts as the judge in the case of the 'eaten' messenger pigeon.
The General is also the victim (it was his pigeon) and he appears for the prosecution as a witness too.
So this proves you CAN make this kind of stuff up...
re: El Reg posting Vetting
@David Bell...get a sense of humour...
<quote>Could be a myth but I remember reading about one of those planes that fly low, scoop water and then drop it on forest fires - it scooped some guy up out for a swim. Unfortunately he died from burns or landing on a tree or something.
That was an episode of CSI.</quote>
..one of those urban myths.
..thats two short people in a raincoat scuppered then..
