Why do I have this need to go and check my privacy settings again?
Would that be the one that you can, y'know, use to make phonecalls?
Are you new here?

You're in a hole. Stop digging.
Glad you pointed that out. Another half-assed survey masquerading as research.
Like yours does? Crazy Bosnian!
A dig at Apple commenting on the comment guidelines. I salute you!
I guess the tariff still applies, but no one's paying :o)
A decent zoom is essential for a larger-fingered gentleman such as myself.
IMO Bellend was right to allow it. It's a part of South African footie culture and its World Cup should reflect that.
That said, anyone blowing one near me next season will be down A&E getting it removed from their jacksy.
If the helmet fits, Sepp...
I can't explain why they cost so much but one thing to consider is these tend to be a lot cheaper to run than a PC, especially with rising leccy costs (plus the VAT increase)
Big lumps of metal, that's the look I'm after! Well done Seagate for bucking the trend!
The roundabout one's a bugger. I've had a few close shaves myself (both as potential crasher and crashee)..
Blimey. First Arjen Robben keeps his feet after being tackled now this. What is going on?
Fair enough we're not short of laughs in our industry but as a comedy franchise, SCO is going for some sort of record. Maybe we should start calling them UNIX Academy.
Not shooting the messenger here, Reg. You're right to report it but this kind of story is becoming depressingly familiar. I fear the planned public sector spending cuts will mean that data-handling training is only going to get worse.
For £250 you could buy 40-50 paperbacks and just read, y'know, them.
I don't understand that at all. That makes me glad to be an English HTC-owner.
Be careful how you hold it as it may not work as well.
Getting shafted by Apple obviously isn't enough for them
Or is this because of another software cock-up in the previous iPhone.
So glad I don't own one of these!
Maybe it would give the lamb a nice flavour as well - a pre-mortem marinade?
"Listeners are discovering radio on iPlayer in spite of the BBC's help, not because of it."
They're not exactly hiding it. On the default BBC home page there are "Listen Live" (iPlayer) links to all national BBC stations.
Yup. Bono's a complete bellend. Sting's another. One of the things I miss about the post-Facebook world is the pictures of Sting looking like a twat group - seriously FB users, search for it and be amazed!
Your best years are well behind you, Prince. I can't see many people giving a rat's jacksy about your latest wankramble.
"Frank just had a dump, lol" spun out to feature-length.
One to avoid methinks.
...but this is fantastic news.
There isn't anything else like it broadcasting in the UK. I love the feeling of being able to switch it on at any hour of the day, confident that there's quality music (especially music that I'd not heard of) to be had.
Lots of tales about stringing them along for larks - which is exactly what I'd do. Bless you Reg readers, bless you all!
Crap reception unless you hold it in a special way or put an expensive rubber band around it. Pull the other one, Jobs.
Authentic frontier gibberish
Slow news day?
This stopped being funny 2 stories ago.
Then they can chuff right off.
The British Computer Society is a fantastic name. A great example of plain English. The proposed rebranding sounds like it was dreamt up by a committee of MBA waving recent graduates who couldn't accomplish any IT task more difficult than opening an email attachment.
Add to that a little rapturous applause from an overheating IT office in the Midlands, too. Well done Finnish nutter!
Airfix _don't_ make models?
Apple really are a bit bobbins aren't they?
Just make your child put some damned clothes on!
...send in the lawyers. So in the spirit of my enemy's enemy is my friend: go Steve!
Who the hell are these chimps that can't handle an 86-year-old without resorting to a Taser?
Stop the world, I want to get off.
May I be the 1057th person to congratulate you on your use of the phrase "backdoor probe"?
My colleague tried that on Wednesday. He was still working out which permutations meant we avoided Germany when I told him they'd played on Wednesday night and won the group.
Not just for the hops, not just for the Germany game - lager is pish anyway.
Mine's the one with the bottle of Holdens Golden Glow in the pocket
Where's the standing ovation icon?
Pretty but painful for the larger handed gentleman (or gentlewoman) to use for any length of time.
I reckon the Canadian "punt" would apply very well to this phone, eh?
Any company still making their software components conform to 8.3 is not to be trsted.
