People who buy the iPhone deserver to have their data stolen and their identities sold to the lowest bidder :P

After all, other studies I've seen on the Reg show how clever they are, so they will be able to recover them, right?

Wolfram Alpha - a new kind of Fail

oh please...

This article shows great insight, especially about Wolfram's ego thing.

I mean would you call anything "<your surname>|Alpha" if you weren't a megalomaniacal egoist?

Nice article Ted!

The more you support Google with your custom the more it will bombard you with junk you don't need and subconciously push you to buy buy buy.

Microsoft's Silverlight for mobile to muscle iPhone

@Doug + @TheReg

@Dou: 'nuff said! What a great summary :)

@TheReg: When will you start being more critical (even objective) in your MS reports?

Your reporters tear apart everything non Microsoft (be it Linux, Adobe, Oracle, etc) so isn't it about time you do the same for Microsoft?

BUT... I just noticed you pick up the MSDN developer zone headlines (right hand side on this screen) so I guess you too are 'partners' of some sort. I'm starting to dislike The Reg and may switch to some more objective news reporting if this continues.

Mathematica man brews 'AI' Google Killer™

Bastar*s

Why oh why do the same as*holes come here to read Ted's articles and then diss him about them? If you know he sucks, don't come back to read new articles damn it. What a tiresome practice having to put up with all these sour-pus*es. Get a job or something! And leave your names, don't post anonymously you slimey pri**s.

Nice article Ted btw, enjoyed the witty comments, as ever.

Very funny to have someone who worked for the guy post here as well, gives a neat overall picture of this dude mentioned.

"Your thoughts will be the only thing that remain private..... but not for long."

True, just today scientists announced being able to 'read' thoughts of subjects:

I left BT when my contract expired, citing Phorm as the main reason.

That really curbed the sales person's enthusiastic attitude on extending my contract for another 12 months. What is there to say? My confidence to this company (BT) is shattered, I mean common, snooping on my data? F*** off retards. Next time do a focus group rather than asking for legal advice alone.

GET OUT OF BT/VIRGIN/etc.

I'm getting out through the contract clause of reduce level of service if they enforce Phorm without my permission as a customer.

Silverlight and open-source Java love has its day

disgusting

This is such an obvious move, I say 'Beware of Greeks bearing gifts'...

and:

@Darren: Better JavaFX/GWT than Silverlight, that's for sure.

@Mark: You are clearly some kind of fanboy, so stfu.

NICE ONE

Nice article, agree with most points as they are true, despite a large percentage of people still thinking otherwise, having not realised that the browser is not an operating system and generally being IT illiterate and lazy.

I'm starting though to get fed up with Ted-haters; if you have personal issues with the author don't fucking post moronic comments, such as "he's misquoting Moore's law, etc", "facebook is great so the point about Web 2.0 is pointless", etc. Read between the lines.

'Lenny': Debian for the masses?

A very different view

You know what?

IMFHO, there is no decent operating system.

They are ALL crap.

From Microsoft, to Linux, to Unix/BSD, Solaris and s***.

Let's build a better one: With consistent APIs that make sense (no unix/win32 derivative), commands that accept similar if not standardized command-line arguments (again no unix derivative), drivers that work (not linux), open source (no windows/osx), snazzy interface (no ReactOS), etc. etc.

Who's up for it?

I fear that Islamist radicalisation proponents have already won several such battles. I don't think these may easily be reversed now as they form part of the law and acceptable ethics.
