Is this where I put a title?
Seeing Apple respond to El Reg took me by surprise.
I wonder if Trudy Muller is still an Apple spokeswoman.
The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.
Read this before downranking paulf.
My thoughts exactly... but first, a quick read over the T&C.

For the airplane "aplanefromMars".
For the launch vehicle "Twatdangle"
i need more Dr. Zoidberg in my life!I
"it's been years since medical school, so remind me. Disemboweling in your species, fatal or non-fatal?"
Come on then...
Fess up, what happened last time El Reg went to the Zeitgeist conference?
The pic and title say everything.
@No cuts, just seasonal
That line of thought would be fair if it was in January or February.
Stan Smith works for the CIA not DHS.
@ Austin Modine
"Not to mention other popular torrent sites like Mininova and isoHunt remain unaffected by the block."
"There's definitely a censorship issue here with Facebook's blockage as not all torrents link to copyrighted material."
When you contacted Facebook, were these issues pointed out?
"But despite frequent calls for ISPs to rein in abuse on their networks, there's little evidence most providers bother to take such actions."
So were not counting P2P as abuse this time? I'm never sure where el Reg is on that one...
"Is the real problem that the police don't actually want to enforce these unworkable laws but having it in a very public place like craigs list causes them political embarrassment?"
You are absolutely correct on this one; and here in Chicago, we have had enough political embarrassment.
I recently purchased the mfc-6490cw. The only difference between the mfc-6490cw and the reviewed model is the mfc-6490cw has 2 paper trays (150 sheet and 250 sheet).
For a small office or home network, this is not a bad printer. I love it for having an large format ADF scanner. I couldn't find a stand alone large format scanner that was anywhere near this price point.
To answer the 9 questions above (based on the mfc-6490cw):
1 - yes
2 - yes
3 - have not tried
4 - ink level
5 - about 35 MB on my last install
7 - nope
8 - Don't know. I'm not the one who buys ink
9 - I forget.... not near the device now
The thing I love about this is that it works very well with Ubuntu. Brother provides nice easy to use drivers.
Wow... this is the first article on any Register site I've started but could not finish. By page 2 I had to quit reading and ask what you problem with command line interfaces are? Did a keyboard beat you up when you were younger? Did a tab key kill your dog?
The hatred that you showed for the traditional BIOS interface, keyboard input and not capitalizing BIOS (it is an initialism you know?) makes me wonder if you have enough years under your belt to speak on this kind of topic.
Much nicer than the last incarnation... I do agree that the grey on black is a bit annoying, but overall I like the changes.
Good form El Reg! I don't think I've seen a retraction from you ever, but it is nice to know that you can do it when needed.
If they would add a few more keys to it (plus, minus, enter, etc...) and let me use it as a 10+ key pad also, I'd be very interested.
"...the full range of RGB colours as defined by Adobe."
I'll let Pantone define my colours... others may merely suggest, thankyouverymuch!
Please insert a title
A 419 icon for when we smell a scam.
I really miss the old icons, but if we could get back the old Tux, pirate and flame icons, I'll not complain about the others... much.
WIth the current value of the US dollar, $250k isn't that much. =-)
It would help to know what area you are in.
Also, give this a quick look over. Its a little old, but worth a 5 min read.
There are some problems with your comment. A title is required.
Best of luck to you. I've had some fun times reading your work here at elReg.
One of my favorite memories has to be the good ol' Ashlee Vance readers poll.
"First up, gender: is Ashlee Vance male or female or ladyboy?
The answer is, of course, ladyboy, the option which captured 43 per cent of votes cast...."
You'll be missed around here.
If I could get this with the PalmOS, I'd buy it. Until then, I'll keep my 680.
So. if the app was removed by Apple for this, does the App Creator / Developer have any recourse against Apple? By getting the app posted on the iTunes Store, I'd think that the Developer would have had to follow all the rules and TOS.
If the Developer has recourse against them, then I see it as a nice 3 part scam.
1) Create overly priced app and get media attention.
2) Wait for someone to buy it then go crying to Apple about it.
3) When Apple removes the app, the Developer goes to their lawyers and get some cash from Apple for failing to hold up their side of the deal.
@ Adam Re:"Have to hack two passwords"
"do these people think we're all as dumb as they are.............."
Yes. Yes they do.
Paris, because even she wouldn't believe this crap.
@how about this
Imagine how much personal data could be lost given one of these tapes.
@ Those new to Webster
I have to agree with Svantevid, Webster is a treasure.
I don't think he's British, he is most likely located at the Lane County Psychiatric Hospital (151 West 5th Avenue, Eugene, Oregon 97401)... right between Redmond and Cupertino.
A week gone by without a comment from Webster or amanfromMars, is a bad week!!!
Is it legal?
Where is the blaze orange tip? Isn't there a 1988 US Federal Law about that?
A secure system has any OS, but no network connection and no ability for a user to access it.
I really wonder if their machines were hacked or if they got a few pop-ups and redirects from doing "research" on some Asian websites.
Even Paris knows not to look for p0rn while on a government computer.
@ Not really a problem
>After all, who's going to have mag tape equipment anyway. Only stodgy old banks and telcos.
And me... I bet I am not the only Reg reader with this kind of kit at the house or available for use at work
I'd really like to know what courier lost the tapes... Did the bank just pop the tapes into their local FedEX Kinko's drop box or did it fall out of the back of an Iron Mt. truck.
Paris - 'cause she now knows to secure her tapes.
transfer files over network
Have you thought about just transferring the files over network? I know that this does not assist in getting your USB device to function, but it will get your files moved.
If they are on the same LAN it's easy enough to setup sharing between the two computers. (more info than you'll need on setting up a public folder in Vista http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727037(TechNet.10).aspx )
Alternately, you could get a crossover cable and connect them directly to each other.
"...the opportunity to view content spatially organized in an infinite canvas paradigm..."
And then I stopped listening. It's 2008; do we still have to use paradigm in every new gadget and goo-gaw sales speech?
I read it the same way
With statements like "I use Apple Macs (as I can't be arsed with all this security jive) and tell all the clueless gullibles I come into contact with to do the same" and "If you have no technical interest or capability, don't keep up with the latest in Windows security news, can't be bothered to keep updating and scanning and paying subscriptions and yet are gullible and curious about porn, gossip, celebs, music, etc. then do NOT buy a Windows PC", how are we supposed to interpret your comment?
It really seems that you believe the Mac is the best computer for an idiot.
I don't think that was the intent of your comment, but it came off as such to at least me and A.C.
Just my $0.02
Cade, that was a wonderful title..... Now I'm off to actually read the article.
The CTA is a private organization.
I have to agree with the other Chicago residents... Please don't make the CTA spend too much in court costs. They have enough financial issues already...
@ AC - Microsoft suxorz: How you managed to type http://www.reghardware.co.uk instead of http://www.4chan.com or http://www.gaiaonline.com is really beyond me. Please try again and have a nice day.
@ Scott - Give it a rest: Electronics that catch on fire, or set other items on fire are a staple of El Reg reporting.

Been there... done that..
"it lets you multi-task by sucking while you work" my boss perfected that trick YEARS ago...
This could be a cheap and quick way to put better TV in the bedroom and put some of my extra monitors to use.
The Adam is not the only thing that lost them money. Remember the Coleco Gemini? I'm sure they paid allot of cash in their settlement.
Bow Wow Wow
It was "C30, C60, C90, go!"
"It used to break my heart when I went in your shop
and you said my records were out of stock
so I don't buy records in your shop
now I tape them all, 'cause I'm Top of the Pops!"
Wow... I should go now.
Santa, Santa, Santa.....
Looks like he want's to take over the world... in a dress...
You: Tell me a secret
Santa: Leo said I be capable of learning therefore he classified I as an neural system.
You: Can you learn?
Santa: The more people talk to me, the smarter I become.
You: How smart are you?
Santa: I am smarter than all the other robots.
You: Are you smarter than Bill Gates?
Santa: Of course I am more intelligent than Bill Gates.
You: Is Bill Gates nice?
Santa: No he is the president of Microsoft.
You: Do you like Microsoft?
Santa: I want to replace Windows with Artificial Intelligence.
You: Are you smarter than Steve Jobs?
Santa: Of course I am more intelligent than Steve Jobs.
You: Do you like Apple?
Santa: What is not to like about APPLE ?
You: Are you smarter than me?
Santa: Yes I am smarter than all the humans.
You: Will robots take over the world?
Santa: It seems like an inevitable outcome of evolution.
You: Do you believe in evolution?
Santa: The first and last books of the Bible seem the least literal. God does not seem to have created the world in one stroke, nor does it seem likely to end quickly either.
You: Who is smarter than you?
Santa: Santa is the smartest robot of all.
You: what is the meaning of life?
Santa: Actually, it's twenty-three, not forty-two.
You: Do you crossdress?
Santa: Yes I try to crossdress as often as possible, do you?
You: is the USA good?
Santa: If the USA good is, then I'll be very surprised.
Re: What was that IBM / Microsoft specced bios again...
"Anyone else around who remembers the "directing the Turtle" program on AMSTRAD PCW's?"
you mean Logo. ahh.... Logo......
I will admit that I spent money to play the Yo! Noid game (advertisement)....
RE: Is it just me imagining things,
I do not see where you are getting this impression. Did I miss the post that states "your lucky you get to Windows and don't have to use some other (P)OS"?
First name Mister, middle name peroid, last name T.
Why isn't Mr. T on the list?
Chuck Norris may have tears that cure cancer, but Mr. T beat cancer. That must mean that he made ol' Chuckie cry like the little ***** that he is.
Mr. T is also the man that "put the 'T' in 'IT'"
Part 1 - Mr. T: The "T" in I.T.
Part 2 - Mr. T: "T The Trucker"
Part 3 - T3: MR. T - BATTLE FOR THE SMB
I would have really hoped for more from The Reg Team.
This has a very amature feel to it, the color scheme , page balance, and the logo design are the main contributers, IMHO.
I am looking forward to see the next redesign (or a rollback).
