Mr F&*king Grumpy

Since when is The Loop an official Apple PR channel ? How credible is this, anyway ?

CLIMATE CHANGE made sea levels FALL in 2010 and 2011

Mr F&*king Grumpy

huh ? Have I woken up in a parallel universe ? Did Lewis Page post an article touching on climate change without twisting the facts to suit the denialist agenda ? A thoughtful, intelligent commentary ? Am I dead ? Is this heaven ?

Snowden's secure email provider Lavabit shuts down under gag order

Re: No need to predict...

never mind "borders on", it would break Swiss law, full stop. In fact it would be a criminal offence. But only in the card holder is domiciled in Switzerland and the credit card is issued in Switzerland.

ARTICLES without comment boxes - Climate, CO2, Anything authored by L. Page...

Mr F&*king Grumpy

'There is no scientific consensus' on sea-level rise, say scientists - no, actually they didn't. They said there is no consensus on the drivers behind ice sheet melting.

Of all the Denier tossers venting garbage on the internet, this Page guy really takes the biscuit. The Register really is way, way beyond its sell by date.

Europe: OK, we'll 'backload' carbon emissions - but we'd better not lose big biz

Mr F&*king Grumpy

"However, the fact that almost everyone who IS an expert in climate science accepts anthropogenic climate change to be the best working hypothesis is pretty important here no?"

They may accept it but they don't necessarily jump to alarmist conclusions - they leave that to the agenda-led tosspots on either side. Unfortunately climate science has done a deal with the devil - enhanced funding and high attention from politicians - at the price of having every result, publication and statement shamelessy miquoted and exagerated by politicians and careerist "experts" on both sides of the fence, not to mention nutjob ecofreaks and deniers. There isn't a snowball's chance in Hell of the actual facts, and indeed unknowns, getting heard now.

Well, just don't look then

"Earth is DOOMED if we spot a big asteroid at short notice"

So, if we don't spot it, we're ok ? Fab.

Google shreds Reader in new round of 'spring cleaning'

Mr F&*king Grumpy
FAIL

Google Reader killed off all the competing RSS aggregators through anti-competitive behaviour, and now they're pulling it ?

Oh, and with Snapseed Desktop they're quietly beginning to axe the NIK products they acquired, too.

I'm with Adolf on this one.

Steve Jobs unveils 30% subs model for ... everything

Credibility. Have you heard of it ?

"It's almost certainly going to be too much for Amazon, who may discontinue their iOS Kindle app"

huh ? Amazon already provides their own payment platform. Do you have a source for this, is it pure provocative invention (as usual) ?

Boffin

omg, we're all gonna die

Actually, "Beaker" (as in Muppet) is much more likely to wind up scientists than "Boffin".... (I speak from experience)

Symbian show struggles for identity

Mr F&*king Grumpy

Come again ?

"This is a bit like saying that internal combustion is going to have to pick up some hints from Tesla and its ilk to compete with electric power"

Apart from the fact that Tesla is a "he", not an "it", what exactly is this ridiculous analogy supposed to be illustrating ?

God, standards have plummeted around here....
