Is there a special school for making up silly product names?
No Google, screw you
I stopped using you years ago. As I've said here before, I take measures to block you wherever possible. Your loss, not mine.
Sheryl Sandberg faced a backlash on her free-content network
Content-free network, shurely.
They must have some good shit on Obama
Just a thought.
Here – with the help of Photoshop for a bit of cut-and-paste – are Dickenson's volume buttons:
Prior art: Teletext remote control buttons

Improved perception, maybe.
I thought the current one was perfection.
They sent DVD.
Martians may have VHS
Or Betamax still.
Shurely shome mishtake

Voting is an illusion. The bastards always win.
Was Re: Too little, too late.
Completely OT but I can't help noticing comment replies are now offset to the right by about 80 pixels.
When did this happen, El Reg, and is it a nested offset?
Edit: Not nested. Hmmm.
Re: Spoon holder...
My wife has a spoon holder. A nasty cheap plastic affair.
I have a spoon holder. It's made of hand.
Re: Multiple view points
trashy or Murdoch
You can't have the latter without the former.
The problem with this kind of idea is that you eventually get herded into a dead end when it narrows down your interests. I prefer the serendipitous nature of random online discoveries.
More Reg journos should recount their holidays from a tech perspective.

Forest Dwellers of Borneo
Probably the best band I ever heard.
Re: Nearly Zero.
payout rates are scarcely distinguishable from what piracy pays: i.e. "zero".
Given the choice between zero and near zero I know which choice I'd make.
Re: Hollywood Pressure
there's a Turing biopic coming out
Please, no. Is nothing sacred?
Does every piece of kit get the same treatment?
Is Cisco vetted for foreign government backdoors, for example? After all, we know the US has massive form.
Re: A pedantic ex-BBC VT engineer points out...
I didn't say they were perfect, I was just pointing out they are there. Anyone that hasn't seen Quatermass will be able to see what it was like. And FWIW I've just been watching the first episode of The Pit again and it's none too shabby at all.
How many tweets...
...does a priest need to make to gain forgiveness for fucking a choirboy?
To Rothenberg, however, the idea of a browser that knows how to block cookies from selective sources is not only abhorrent, but it could mean the destruction of an entire segment of the global economy.
There's already at least one browser that knows how to block cookies from selective sources. It's called Mozilla Firefox. It's not a default state and the user has to select this option manually but the option is there.
Except for Buddhists.
"Let The Register know. We guarantee your anonymity"
Are you still sure about that?
Re: Merlin engine?
My original comment was meant to be humorous but if you want to get serious then this imposter engine will only earn the name Merlin when it has changed the course of a world war and subsequent history.

The world's longest running corporate tax evasion scam begins.
Re: Obsession with 'market share'
Heck I bet Ferrari and Rolls Royce dont have much market share either but you dont see such owners stressing whether they ought to have bought a Ford!
You don't see Ferrari and Rolls Royce choosing to fit Ford engines either.
An idea for the new name
It's lucky heavy metal fans don't move their heads much
Many of the blokes in IT are enormous tits. It doesn't help.
Coat's First Law Of Optical Media
Any new and larger optical drive will only have enough capacity to back up the hard drive space you had five years ago.
Re: I don't know
Which of the two countries are you talking about?
"if it's not chilled, it's utterly disgusting"
Sounds like Australian beer.
Speaking as a vegan...

Re: Landfill devices
Obvious fanboi troll is obvious
I wish people would stop repeating these pat little phrases. They add nothing.
Let me get this straight...
...Windows was uncool because it ran on Intel chips.
Unix was uncool because beardy geeks like it.
Vista was uncool because of the interface.
And now Apple is using all of them,
Apple is the new old.
Another CIA-funded upstart...
...is Google Earth, aka Keyhole Inc, financed by In-Q-Tel, the venture capital wing of the CIA.
