That was as clear as mud--possibly a function of your being so parsimonious with punctuation.
Re: What is this, punch the monkey?
I don't mind el Reg engaging in some animated hijinx with Jesus (or rejecting the original version of this post), but does that animation have to be so g*-awfully irritating? Try subtle, for C*'s sake!

Shock! Stop the presses!
Oh, wait! An-what? Okay, then.

Not sure he'll be the last, but reasonably sure he'll be the last for a while, anyway. Unless, they make it into an annual barbecue.
p.s. "Nadz" or "Nutella"? Tough choice, tough choice.

It might help to think of it as a corral.

One upvote for that. Worth more than one, though, given that I had to log in...

Re: Will you make up your mind.
"You thought Apple products never get viruses? You'd be right,
There are no Mac viruses. Period.
What there are, are trojans which can get installed by careless or reckless users."
Picky, picky, picky!
(Where's the tongue-in-cheek icon, dammit?)
5 thumbs down, eh? Tsk, tsk! Apparently it's necessary to include the joke icon every time.
What's the point of this yarn?
>What about the small of the back?
Agree. I can't understand why 'the office' hasn't been claimed as yet for use in toting around slab-like things of various sizes.
Someone apparently has slipped more than a bit of random into the water table in Redmond.
This will end in tears, I think, but Microsoft will long be able to afford--unfortunately--to pay people to be up'n'smiley about whatever-the-fuck they're doing with Windows any given day of the week.
Re: Norwich has an apple store?
Oh, Captain, don't be such a natsi! I'm sure yore not perfect. Everyone has there good daze and there bad daze.
and the kids were told, in response to a specific question on the subject, that the phones couldn't be bent... So
the kids were merely gaming the assertion of the sales clerk in response to that question.
the kids were actively misinterpreting the interdiction of bending the phones issued by the sales clerk wise to the threat posed by the kids.

Re: Bottom Dock/Panel
"Plank"!? WTF? Looks supiciously famil... Oh! Don't mention OS X. Or the war.

In OS X, you can have the dock left-, right-, or even top-mounted, too.
>most people (males at least) carry their phone in their pockets. Seems like a rather serious design fault to me.
Recall the males? I've seen a fair few females whose back pockets have the tell-tall bulge of a phone, though.
What I don't get, at all, is why you'd put a complex object/tool for which you've just paid real money into a pocket of your pants, or into the bottom of your [m|p]urse, to grind along with whatever else ends up in there. Akin to putting a camera, loose, into a purse, backpack, or pannier. Makes no sense; retrieving a phone from a pocket is fiddly (front dress pants pockets aside) to boot. There's a huge market for dedicated cases. And shirts still come with pockets, du-uhn't they?
>Go back to displaying 15 blue links and ads and nothing else. Otherwise, they are unfairly displaying their products in a nicer way than those of competitors, which are only displayed as typical search results.
Not to argue against Something Being Done, but how do you police such a solution (and who does it) without requiring that Google reveal trade secrets?
>It works for Apple because there's a rabid fan base out there that wants the earliest access to the sexy products.
It works for Apple because there's a very large pack of journalists out there, and each one of them needs to collect a paycheck in order to eat.

No one is surprised, so what's your point?

Re: Get a proofreader.
"We sell eyeballs"?
Something about the wavelengths of the language gives me pause; Mr. AO is the usual suspect, I agree, but let's not forget this upstart ADabbs person--noob-kids-on-the-block do try harder...

Re: Human flea instead?
>good to have quick release to then dump it and move on.
And, to prevent a net accumulation of those same booster packs on the backsides of the current enemy, drone tech built in to giddy-up the nearly-depleted-of-fuel boosters back to lines, where they can be lathered, rinsed, and repeated.
I generally agree with comments about dronifying gun barrels: that's much more efficient, militarily, as guns don't have stomachs. However, DARPA is doing the sensible thing in funding research of this kind: you never know what kind of consumer shiny might come out of it, ultimately--and wars are fought to ensure that civilians have something to live for.
00.15% is probably enough
for Apple to pay for the bonking gear that they'll foist onto retailers globally after making 'an offer they can't refuse' i.e. 'use our kit or the money gets it'.
>you and your peers insist on telling us, over and over and over and over again, at tedious fucking length, how much you "don't care what others think"
Bingo! I suspected that there was a pattern here, but until now I've been unable--you know--to put my finger on it. Thank you, endlessly, STB!
(I'd use an icon displaying a very different digit, flipped in the direction of the twitcherati, if one were available--but no such luck. Anyway, I'm off to the agora so that I can posture and flash my Apple tat. I'd add 'and to wind up the twitcherati', but apparently they never need winding, never need winding, never need winding. Tah!)

Re: i dont understand
>why would you cover your nipples in a selfie
Personally, I do it so as not to let my market cap slip--which can happen if you start giving the product away. I can't speak for others, though.
You. are. not. alone.

>... just one guy created all this in six days, 6000 years ago ...
Or so it is claimed. There having been apparently no one else around at the time to vouch for him, though, leaves me a little suspicious of the claim.
You think you're astounded, do you? You are deluded, my fellow commentard, deluded.

>does anyone remember the original Sun optical ones that required their own specific metal pad with a pattern on it?
I once saw something like this--an optical mouse with required grid-equipped metal mousepad--running on a Mac Plus (and no bullshittin'). Large WTF? factor at the time. The system in question, though, must have had at least six (6) complete systems (System plus Finder, pre-System 7) installed in various places on the hard drive, which tended to make it a little 'wobbly'.
Re: How many fingers am I holding up?
>But why did they keep churning out one-button mice when everyone else had a three-button.
One of which did nothing whatsoever, while the other had only very limited use, you mean? Jeez, 'dunno. Maybe they designed the interface so that it only required a single button--rather than graft someone else's mouse onto the system and call the second rarely-used button, and the third never-used buttons "features". Could be. Could be.

anyone design a drive train so that it was even possible to mis-install a single part--let alone the flywheel counter-weight--incorrectly at all?
Re: "they would release the name of the daughter of St Louis County’s police chief"
A good principle to apply, even if you're a vigilante, is 'measure twice, cut once'. Another relevant principle is to stay on task.
No more turning over a USB thing, then turning it over again to plug it in: Reversible socket ready for lift off
And so, sooo very ...
user-serviceable. In a pinch, I mean. Like the sockets. And the cables will cost the moon at the outset. The sockets the earth. And they'll both be fragile. However, Sum Won Somewhere will make loads o' cash selling barely-functioning facsimiles. Unless, of course, someone else comes along and decides to put a cap in this whole USB madhouse, which would be the preferred outcome in a rational world.
