How much more low quality TV do we actually need?
"Groupon blamed Europe's weak economy and currency fluctuations for its less-than-impressive results"
So not that their business model is offering people money off stuff they didn't want in the first place, then. Well they would say that.
Are DEY Scouse?
DEY do doh don't DEY doh.
I momentarily took exception to this - before realising it's true.
Our laws are made - end enforced - by morons. How did this happen.
Re: The only innovative use of NFC I've heard of so far.
Nice idea but it's hardly remote.
Exactly the sort of thing I go to the pub to avoid.
It'll be texts from dog next. http://textfromdog.tumblr.com/
Please Samsung, get Dom Joly to advertise this in the UK.
Sounds nice but it's no bacon butty - too much frippery.
Bacon, butter, bread, sauce. Resolve to never drink again.
Re: That isn't proper bacon
I'd stick with good bacon every time. Danish bacon's just nasty - full of water.
For me it's good British bacon if flush, porridge if not.
I share your doubts that less famous folks would get so quick a response from plod but that doesn't mean they're wrong to arrest this clown. He's made a death threat and that's against the law.
Hopefully this will scare the shite out of the wee scrote, Tom Daley will decline to press charges and that'll be an end to the matter but arrest is the correct response - IMO of course.
What a fantastic moment for British justice and common sense. Good job we haven't looked like fools or anything.
Well done, all!
Re: Sledgehammer meets nut
The sad thing is the case categorically doesn't warrant a custodial sentence but McKinnon will receive a one if extradited.
It's time this cruel farce ended.
"If it 'ain't broke, why break it?"
Exactly. CentOS is the absolute dogs danglies and all for the excellent price of free!
We run CentOS for dev, staging and production servers and it's rock solid. I'm unashamedly a CentOS fanboi.

Re: cubic litres?

You may also remember the Tories attacking it when Labour tried to bring it in. And during the election.
They're all fearful, greedy, self-serving shitebags and none of them deserve our support.
Re: Why is the windows user icon a tramp?
Because Windows drives
people me to drink?
While we're scraping the barrel of old technology, why not Telegraph Pi?
Re: Valuable stuff?
I suspect a new bubble. In SPAAAACE!*
* if overusing "in SPAAAACE" is good enough for El Reg it's good enough for me.
I'm no astroboffin but my understanding is our orbit is very slowly moving away from the Sun. We'd need a lot of space gold to alter that trend.
Re: Door stickers are bad
It's not that unusual. My next-door neighbours are also [my number] + 1 and [my number] - 1
Re: "the anglepoise iMac"
Thank you. Now I understand.
Formerly Confused of Englandshire.
Is that the same as scotch breath? I sometimes develop that.
Re: Apricot trees?
It was Glenrothes, yes.
I worked for an Apricot reseller in the 90s. Nice PCs, some very nice servers. Couldn't compete with Dell, though. Shame.
Re: could cut vehicle thefts also
It'd be trivial to get it to talk to the 4sp API as well. And you just know some bastard is going to do it!
If you want to save lives I'm sure there are better ways to spend the money (i.e. something that saves 2 lives per €5m is twice as good and so on).
Who on earth would want link their Twitter account linked in to LinkedIn? I'd be just as likely to put a link to my Reg comments on my CV.
Shame for marketroids, not an issue for real people.
Re: Punters will want to told one simple thing
Yup. It's just a really bad idea. I can't see anyone forking out a laptop's worth of money for nothing even close to the functionality. Even a smartphone's more use offline.
