Re: Worse to come...
Wasn't that the nub of the false Bruce Willis story a year or two ago??
I would've thought Apple would be able to tally the iPad serial number to the iTunes account in a few clicks. Never mind the courts, go straight to BBC Watchdog and have it plastered across prime time TV then see just how quick it gets sorted

Who care if it works? Think of the spares and maintenance contracts!

In the early CSI episodes they used the phrase 'I have a friend at NASA with an algorithm that will clean this up'
On one site I tried to use PENIS.
It told me it wasn't long enough
I like to get these old jokes back out into the community
Who'll be using it
It will be all right unless all this computing power falls in to the hands of people we can't trust.
Oh, hang on a minute .........
Not Possible in the UK
...... when (if?) we go over to DAB! Who would have thought the dross that passes for the majority of UK radio could be the savior of space tavel
Go All The Way
Facebook might as well go all the way and insist on changing your password every month. Just think of the amount of work that will get done when people can't remember their new password and can't log in to FB :)
I would have thought anyone clever enough to go to the ISS would voluntarily have all their data storage scanned. Knowing you've just borked the atmosphere scrubber whilst sorting your mp3s should focus the mind.
Did the German spooks find out their leader was compromised when they sifted through the data provided to them by the NSA???
Turn the Dial
When will they do a Google and turn up the dial on the machine to generate a higher return per customer to compensate for this drop in revenue??
They're not bothered about being struck off by the BMI, they're most worried about the punishment Apple will dish out for a false review!!!

What;s the point in having an inquiry if you don't already know the outcome?
Same old, same old ...
I thought biggest proponentsof BYOD were the senior managers who had brought their son/daughter to work and had an ESSENTIAL need to access Facebook/Twitter/Youtube/BBM
Re: new format
Samsung or LG ?????
My Fair Share
Looks like an (ex?)employee wasn't getting what they considered their cut. A bit hard on the employees who weren't in on the shceme
Who cares if it works? Think of the spares and maintenance contracts for years to come

Re: they deserve it
Fairly sure that non-kosher bacon was not involved
Looks like 9 60s/70s TV sets on end. Not even widescreen
Re: That trick could be dangerous
No mention is made of whether the Fire Brigade attended. I hope Computacenter were charged (monetarily and legally) if they did
Been hearing reports of early failure of SSDs- they just fail with no warning as well. Just a bad batch? I've not yet heard of any method of data recovery from a failed SSD. I'm not ready to write off SATAs just yet
Bad Business Model
---NetSuite's revenue for 2012 was up 30 per cent year on year to $308.82m, although it made a net loss of $35.23m, slipping slightly further into the red from 2011's $32m loss. Salesforce's revenue for the year ended 31 January 2013 was $3bn, up 35 per cent year on year, although it made a loss of $270m, surpassing the previous 12 months' $11m loss.--
Have these companies made a profit on previous years?? Wil the bubble burst in the next dotcom crash??
maybe when having his hair done he should have his hands reduced to Porn Star size. These make 'objects' held appear bigger than they are
Re: Don't believe it
Or convince the shareholders the the Mickey D offer is the only one going. For a 'consultancy fee' of course
Will we be able to get the thermal/UV filters and the shoulder-mounted plasma cannon??
Testing, Testing ..
That was only a ranging shot. One long, one short and then Footfall will hit its intended target
Oh, wow! Rupert Murdoch is a subscriber ti The Register.

Will we be seeing a soft drinks gap emerge with the commies????
Re: Best part of the game
It could happen for 3/4 of a F1 race an no-one would notice, just keep showing the same lap over and over again.
Good, we won't get to see Richard in those stupid adverts. Or maybe it can take the GoCompare route and save the nation from him.
Re: Looks like Pete Cooke
Damn, beat me to it!
12 light years? If we start now we might get there before the end of the world. Oh, wait ......
Lockheed and English Electric/BAC must be worried about the knock on the door
James Herbert is considering setting his next novel in the SOuth Pacific
For special forces when the plan goes out the window then it;s 'Improvise, Soldier, Improvise!'
They could make the factory in a decommisioned military base, make the snakes grow to giant size and super intelligent before extracting the venom. What could possibly go wrong??
I KNEW you were going to say that
Another ex-member of the RBS IT Team surfaces with a new job.
Sorry, used that joke before, getting my coat now
I can see this being settled out of court. I assume Bruce can afford to hire top class lawyers that would give Apple a run for their money and I'm sure they wouldn't want to set a precedent if they lost.
Just who is buying these shares now the price has plunged? Are they expecting a rally on the price or just getting razor thin margins when selling on?
Trouble Brewing ...
... if the team leader says 'We're gonna need a bigger buoy!'
Sounds Familiar ...
Looks like the IT guy from RBS soon got a new job then.
No,no, aliens are humanoid with a few extra bits on the head. If aliens really look like this then the CGI budgets will go through the roof.
Had she just watched the film Monsters?
Surely with BigBrother/Batchelor/ Celebrity/ X Factor /BGT et al the adverts are far more entertaining than the program content
Will be Useful.

Re: Is zero-G industry really a cash cow?
Probably has more serious interest than asteroid mining and look how much has been speculated on that
Would the numbers be much different if the survey was for compulsive Facebook/Twitter/Casino use?
Boeing Fanboi to .....
Apple Fanboi -'You only paid what? I wouldn't use that piece of cheap tat!'
Does that mean Chuck Bartowski will have to work full time for the CIA/NSA? Sorry, thats Buy More and the Nerd Herd
Re: I like the way...
Maybe the vacuum to fill is a wireless DVD drive that sits in a large enclosure that looks like 20 leather bound books on a shelf? Impressive to look at, easy to update AND cheaper and more eco friendly that actual books.
Excuse me whilst I go out to the patent office
Re: Great Idea MS
Methinks Apple won't be getting their normal 30% cut in the iTunes store
Any guesses to the response level to the question 'Are the manufacturers forcing you to buy gadget add-ons to get quality base features?'
