Record-breaking laser pulse boosts fusion power hopes

Re: "or do I err?"

That's the genius of it - it produces 1000* it's own energy, which then clearly becomes 1000*1000* it's own energy, and so on - thereby generating an infinite amount of energy, and solving the world's energy problems at a stroke.

Maybe.

New Yorker sues Apple: 'Misleading and deceptive' Siri ads

David 30

Re: Parallels to be drawn

"...Siri either did not understand what Plaintiff was asking, or, after a very long wait time, responded with the wrong answer."

Is Siri actually just Apple's 'customer service' department?

Fake real

So if I wear a real Rolex, but lie about who I am, that makes the watch a fake?

London rioters should 'loose all benefits'

Thumb Up

battle royale

Sounds good to me - put one half in blue, one half in red, give them a random selection of weapons and let them have at each other. Should whittle down the numbers a bit.

Traffic-light plague sweeps UK: Safety culture strangles Blighty

David 30
FAIL

Unsurprisingly not

Not true - while pushing your bike you're considered a 'foot passenger', legally no different from someone without a bike. If you were to put one foot on a pedal and push along the pavement with the other, that would be illegal, as is using a scooter on the pavement.

Virgin tempts Brits with fee-free TiVo

David 30

Reply to post: Hmmm

Sure they can be done on-box. But you need to keep up to date with the underlying data that drives them. How's it going to know that viewers who watched programme X also liked programme Y if the box was made before the programmes were? It needs to be regularly updated with the latest data (and probably feed back your viewing data to help others) - that's what you'd be paying for.

BBC adopts El Reg units

David 30

@ david w & peter 45

Except it's not going to just magically arrange itself tidily at an even level right throughout the valley, is it? It's going to come surging down *through* the valley. Likely taking trees, people's houses, unfortunate engineers, etc with it. Frankly, if I saw 26 swimming pools worth of water *coming right at me*, I reckon it'd scare the bejesus out of me.

Microsoft sneak peeks Hotmail makeover

David 30

Wait, what?

"Hotmail won't work non-Microsoft documents, such as PDF"

Does this really mean what it appears (albeit somewhat illiterately) to be saying? Hotmail won't be able to send non-MS attachments? Not even as a regular attachment not stored on Skydrive?

@Fraser

"Some things they are missing policies on: <biglonglist>"

That's OK - they can always make like the tories and make 'em up as and when they're asked about them, to suit whoever's asking.
