Those example pics are not very impressive at all.

Why grill Google over web dominance? It has none

WTF?

Que?

Google is not dominant in search? WTF is this guy on?

Perhaps Reg will publish their search engine referral stats to back this up!

Fukushima one week on: Situation 'stable', says IAEA

The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.

The anti-nuclear knee-jerking from various governments in light of this has been really depressing. If we can't take a clear scientific approach to something as important as where we are going to get our energy from over the next 50 years, rather than rash emotional judgements, then we are going to find ourselves in trouble.

Google (finally) releases antidote to Google ad webpage drag

About time

Let's hope they fix the code that has been causing JS errors (even in Chrome) for months, possibly years- they don't seem to have given a toss about it until now...

What sealed Nokia's fate?

S 10
WTF?

The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.

The thing that puzzles me is that smartphone hardware is largely converging - there's not really much in it between different hardware manufacturers. Generally it's now the software and supporting services that make or break a device. It seems that Nokia has thrown away the ability to control the parts of their product that count.

Screw video

I don't understand the wingeing about the video resolution. Who the hell uses a pro DSLR for video anyway? It's like moaning about boot space in a sports car. If you're serious about results, you will of course use the right tool for the job. Nikon should have resisted adding these consumer level features to their pro line - who cares what Canon do.

Hmm

Would have expected something a little more impressive by now.

Microsoft tests show no Win 7 battery flaw

S 10
Thumb Down

The hardware is junk

I've not upgraded to Win7, but have to say that the quality of laptop batteries seems to have been in general decline for a long time. My <1yr old HP lap now holds a charge for about 10 mins (no kidding). Compare that to my 5 year old HP machine which still manages about 2hrs40.

Silverlight 3: closer to what client-side .NET should have been

Thumb Down

Don't think so...

Interesting, but I think it's a big mistake to assume that MS based web outfits are going to happily push MS tech to their users. I wouldn't.

Nokia prepping 12Mp cameraphone with optical zoom?

S 10
WTF?

What a joke

What's the point? Huge file sizes mainly storing the pattern of noise that the tiny sensor was chucking out at the time...

Why not work on a camera phone that takes decent pictures with a normal resolution? I haven't seen one yet.
