Re: Unmitigated Jokes

El Reg - Could you change the anonymous posting tag from "Anonymous Coward" to "Village Idiot"? Just a thought.

Opera embraces Google's open source JPEG killer

re: Slightly confused

@Trev 2: True if you are connecting direct to web sites, but if you are using the Opera 'Turbo' proxy service, the image assets will be transcoded and piped to your browser in WebP format. Have to say that 'Turbo' proxy is a very useful service when using 3G :-)

Re: "How Ironic", "Can't be watched on iPad"

Huh? Since when has it not been possible to watch YouTube clips on an iOS device?

iTunes privacy hole shares library content with world+dog

Jason Pugh
Stop

Privacy gone slightly mad don't ya think?

I'm not particularly bothered whether this is the iTunes store or Amazon: Andrew McAfee really needs to find something a bit more worthwhile to waste his time on. I guess you *could* go trawling through the 1/2 million items on iTunes trawling for for dodgy purchases but, really, what are you going to find: Barry Manilow? Fart Apps? I can't imagine that it would be feasible to data-mine via this 'security risk' either.

...I'm imagining that this guy sits on his own down the pub (sports bar for you yanks).

EC rejects Microsoft's browser promises

Thumb Down

Oh, FFS!

Well the one thing the EU seem to be a doing a good job of winning here is the honour of being regarded in greater contempt than MS - Way to Go. I don't normally resort to bad language in comment posts, but it's hard to better Toastan Buttar's eloquent comment above: Twats.

Colchester Hospital sacks manager over lost laptop

Jason Pugh
Alert

@David Eddleman

"You really can't fault the guy for leaving his laptop in the car. That's not the real issue here. He left it in a secure location (behind a locked door) and that's responsible enough."

Sweet Jesus! Where do you live - Rockall???????

About time....

.... just wish my company would implement this sort of policy. Leaving laptop in car = breathtaking stupidity that is pretty much inexcusable. Even if the bloke was pressured into working on his vacation (and that seems to be entirely conjecture), *anyone* who gave a damn about their job would at least attempt to take better care of company equipment. If the hospital has not implemented an appropriate data security policy, then there is certainly a question of where that responsibility lies, but that does not provide *any* excuse for this sort of behaviour.
