"Whilst I laud the original aims of wikileaks it seems to have become a publicity vehicle for Julian Assage with everything designed to ensure max publicity to boost his ego and martyr image."
Very, sadly true. Hosting wikileaks in the US serves no purpose for freedom of information (small letters). He's just trying to get more column inches. Just expose the dirty laundry and leave the celebutard BS to Hilton, Lohan et al.
@People's Republic of Android
That's Democratic* People's Republic of Android to you, revisionist American lapdog!

"Assange's leaky discharge"
My headline fragment of the week. Have a pretendy pint on me!
You're right to flag the unusual demographic. Figures from the high street would be much more representative.
Still being outsold 3-1 by "dying" platform Symbian has to be a worry for them.
I doubt it would be cash
$1000 for every employee at the Chocolate Factory. Untold millions arriving in actual cash? I doubt it.
On tax - my understanding was that Google would pay the tax.
"a bug in the system that seemed to drive quality scores down in late October"
A bug that mysteriously drives up revenues in October? I can imagine how urgently they're looking at that!
Only a concept but
I bet it weighs a fncking ton
Good for you
I think she's a bit too keen on shiny new technology at the expense of critical thinking.

That sounds like a good reason to use Opera, then.
If I were a judge I'd pat him on the head, say "oh dear how sad never mind" and move on to the next case.
@Papal plotting priests please ponder
My concern is not being wiped out. I'm clear that NFC transactions are only good for small amounts. Even that small amount is going to be a motivation for some wee shite.
So nicking my phone isn't going to clear me out but is going to be a massive ballache.
Dodi Fayed was like the Spectrum. Much better, arrived a bit later but sadly prone to crashing at the worst possible time?
Like a lot of Reg readers I'm sceptical of every new "paradigm shifting" technolodgy "revolution" that comes along but I'm positively Luddite about this one.Who benefits other than thieves and the banks (as we spunk our accounts into the red with even less idea of what we're spending)?
DO NOT WANT!
I'm not in the least surprised.
From a purely selfish point of view, my perv-scanned photos are only of interest to the chubby-chasing community. It's the beautfiul people I feel sorry for.
Overrated band (hi), meet overrated music store (hi).
Not the same
Google Wave (Gwave?) tried to co-opt the Gmail userbase into a new product. This is a new feature in an already popular product.
Me? I'll use it if it's good, wish I could block it if not.
The Ig-Nobel prize academy will take note!
