It'll be easier to organise flash mobs in prison
Even easier when everybody wears the same outfit! :-)
Unauthorised image, eh?
Fancy what he might think upon seeing a picture of himself in a newspaper that he didn't explicitly approve of!
Brilliant, Monsieur Sarkozy - quite a crafty manner of reducing sales of said doll!
Nice to have privilege...
...and access that the average person doesn't have, eh?
Hopefully, the next U.S. President makes a discreet enquiry and suggest to NASA that GOOG founders' jets might be better parked on a non-government owned property.
Heck, these rich chaps could even buy up some land, get it zoned appropriately, put on a private runway, put up some large hangars, get FAA approval and certification, then move their jets there! It's not like they're hurting for money, eh? Money's the only lubrication that works better than oil. :-)
...its replacement uses a design that isn't easily hacked/cracked.
Wouldn't it have been cheaper...
...for that mental midget to just donate $69,000 in the first place and skip the attacks?
Either way, he would have been out $69,000 but had he done it as a voluntary donation minus the attacks, he wouldn't have been a convicted felon.
That's going to be a conversation starter and resume enhancer, all right.
Pr0n magazines might sue, though...
...since this (perv mode) may mean a significant drop in the mags that the military orders. :P
Lovely. Gives the con men up to seven days to ply their nefarious trade.
Truly rich, indeed
I see the poster of the 'interesting comment' seems to be a little lacking in the vocabulary department, if he has to resort to such heavy use of profanity. Might I suggest El Reg consider sending him a brand-new thesarus for Christmas? :-)
Can't even imagine...
...how they back up that thing! Must be using 10 Gbps links to the backup server(s) and using a fairly large tape library. LTO-5 coming out next year should do about 900 GB per tape with hardware compression at up to 160 MB/sec. That would be capable of about 5.9 PB at 6881 tape drives and 192 frames. You'd need 26 entire LTO-5 libraries just for 150 PB! And that's not factoring in any data growth, either.
Doing any large scale restores must suck, too. :-)
That's truly rich.
I wonder if they've already fired the team that was supposed to market Vista effectively? Not to mention the guys in charge of developing Vista usability specifications. :)
Should've replied with 'mu' :-)
Good article, good student, bad-to-dumb 'university'. How much time did they spend inventing that quite ridiculous cover story at the local pub?
Paris 'cos even she knows when she's reading gibberish.
I see they apparently design their rate plans in favour of the poor; why didn't they advertise their benevolent intentions earlier to save them the PR disaster?
Seeing as to how generous they pretend to be, they might consider reducing their rates, which surely, would benefit the poor.
