Commuter jetpacks offered: $100k, August delivery

Dale
Stop

So what happens when I get to work?

Will I have to take a bath in cologne to cover up the scent of hydrogen peroxide and kerosene once I get to work? and would my daily commute be like a real life game of those silly internet games where you try to avoid things in the air and bounce off things on the ground to get the maximum distance possible. And how do I fill up at work to get home? Would I need a tank of the aforementioned hydrogen peroxiede and kerosene in my cubicle? And what if I have to do most of my journy on the bus or subway? How would the police, home land security or your average joe feel about that?!

How can I completely clear my PC of private data?

Dale

Replace the harddrive

The only way you can be sure is to give them a fresh HD or no HD at all. It is possible to recover upto 32 layers of deleted data if you have the right tools but you have to ask yourself what kind of damage could actually be done with the information on there. Personally if I were you I'd probably just format and reinstall windows

RIM sues LG over Chocolate, Shine brand

Joke

Grocery Store

So I was in the grocery store the other day and I noticed that blackberries were on sale! Man those things are cheap! I'm still trying to figure out how to send an email from the tiny little thing.

Farmers should sue RIM!

Console peripherals promise Porsche-style driving experience

Turning?

What about the degree of turn? Is it a crappy 180? or the full 900! I'd never buy a steering wheel that didn't turn the full 900 especially for over $300!

Mystery radio bursts from the depths of the universe

Dale

Ping

Maybe the alien life is pinging us! We should build something that can be very powerful for a short amount of time to reply with!!!!! Or else the aliens will be getting a request timed out and we will never see them :(

Instead of stars colliding maybe it was the sound of a mother ship comming out of warp speed, or going into it! :D hehehe

MS warns gamers: steer clear of Xbox racing wheel

Bowl of water?!

Why don't the users just put their faulty power supplies in a bowl of water to keep them from over heating!

**PS: this is a joke, do not put your power supply in a bowl of water!**

Orange goes green for festival phone-fuelling

Dale

What else can it power!

I like to backpack and would love to be able to bring one of these things around with me. If only it could power some sort of cooling device, oh to have a cold drink while miles away from civilization would be great!!!!

Hello, Apple PR. Dr. Freud will see you now

Dale

Missing the point

Anyone who thinks Ashlee is whining and shouldn't be invited because he is not a developer is missing the point. Ashlee may not be a developer, but like his article said (if anyone bothered to read it) he is a JOURNALIST. A journalist for a very large audience at that (how many unique hits a day does the reg get?). More journalists = more attention/hype and you can never have enough of that especially before a big product launch. I think apple or steve jobs is just afraid of being made fun of and personally I think the register should fight fire with fire and either boycott the next apple press conference, stop writing about apple or specifically the iPhone all together or (my personal favorite) sneak in to the developers conference and go from there, maybe trying to catch Steve-o somewhere for a personal interview about why he has black listed elreg!

Google adds PowerPoint viewer to Gmail

Dale

simplicity

This is simply a feature for simplicity! It's a feature that will allow you to view a power point presentation without having to download the actual presentation, and run it, then find the file and delete it if it's garbage! It's not about taking out Microsoft in the short run (maybe they have other long term goals for this feature), it's not about saving bandwidth it's about society being lazy and taking the easy way out.

It would be helpful if you were one of those people that like to recieve and forward all of your junk/joke mail.

Apple's Safari 3: a crashing experience for non-US users

Dale

cryptic error messages

"Safari is missing important resources and should be reinstalled." haha, so much for Mac's not giving out cryptic error messages, sure we're not talking about the OS here but still. From the sounds of it though Safari is hardly useable, not quite beta yet and agree with the person quoted in the article that it seems more like alpha software. Beta should generally work but have hidden bugs, not bugs like "I goto a website and I can't click on the links", but then again, maybe Apple is following the Microsoft way in regarding software releases. Somehow it works for Microsoft as most of the population is willing to say "how far" when microsoft says "bend over"!

Time for new network security certification

Dale

Certificate needs an upgrade

True value of a certificate indeed, but most certificate programs also offer a training component, and training someone on all these theorys is going to be complicated. What this starting to sound like is a Bachelors Degree, or a Diploma rather then a certificate. Do you really think someone with no knowledge of networking could be taught all of this in under a year? Depending on how long it would take to learn all the theories is what I'd use as a judge for the reward at the end of the tunnle. A year or less is a certification, Two years or less is a College Diploma, and Four years or less is a Bachelor Degree. Oh how nice it would be to have a Bachelor Degree in computer networking, right now most universities only offer Computer Engineering (hardware) or Computer Science (software) and nothing to connect the software to the hardware to another hardware to another software! End of rant...

Hormonally challenged teens refrain from abstinence

Dale

The other 56%

Obviously, the other 56% didn't know what condoms were because they were only taught about abstinence as a form of birth control. HA!

Swiss turn Titanic into timepieces

Dale

Good Idea

"Perhaps instead of making 2,012 watches to commerorate 100 years since the tragedy, they should make 1,517 to commemorate the number of people who died so they could turn it into a marketing campaign..."

To help further this campaign they should also engrave the name, d.o.b, address etc of one person per watch. They would be able sell them for even more!
