ie: I got the ones requiring knowledge about american people wrong.
I would expect from the title that the quiz be a bit more technical.
Tough on The Sun
Tough on the causes of The Sun.
It's a real disease with doctors and medicine and everything!
It's my cross to bear.
VDI is good for Bring Some Other Dude's Device*
When there's an environment where a lot of business partners and sub contractors are working on site, each with their own corporate standard and secured laptop, VDI gives a nice abstraction layer for shared working. I've concerns about end users bringing home devices onto a network.

Where do you start?
Don't start! Silly policy to save money now and spend more later.
portable Sauna Heater?
I've a z10
After about 4 years of Android, I'm very impressed. All the Android apps I need work and everything out of the box is seamless. The build quality is good and I love the OS. I'm not sure I'm ready to go to a physical qwerty keyboard though and I'm certain I don't want a bigger screen, if I have to change it will be to a Sony z3 compact.
Re: I'm waiting for BBC to follow suit
would they collect the bins too?
move your last sentence to the top of the article
It will save people a lot of time.
"They're proprietary. There's a high level of lock-in."
Who else is offering this? What's the migration path from Aurora to, say, PostgreSQL?
Re: About £4.60 per customer affected
Yes, hardly an incentive not to fail again. Enormous is overstating it.
Well said, sir!
I am neither a Windows nor Linux sysadmin though I have, reluctantly, administrated servers for both. My Linux knowledge is weak, self taught, based on extensive use of G**gle and memories of my formal training in Sun Solaris and IBM AIX. I am a hack. I recognise this in myself but bemoan it when people who profess to administer Linux for a living have less knowledge on how the things work. When I meet a really good Linux sysadmin I am agog. They are not cheap but they are worthwhile. On the other hand, Windows seems pretty idiot proof to install, security harden and operate.
I'd rather a security auditor worked with the customer to fix the holes rather than chase publicity by exposing them.
Tech giants who encrypt comms are wittingly aiding their entire user customer base*,

There, fixed it.
I can't afford to spend that on what's basically a souvenir either but imagine you had Vasco de Gamo's sextant for sale, with documents of sale and unimpeachible authenticity? Your grandchildren would thank you for buying this.
Good luck buying an Android with only a 4' screen
I'm trying to replace my Sony Xperia Ray with something similar and can't find much under 4.5" these days.
For an office suite, try WPS Office. I find it works well on Android (Linux, Windows too) and it integrates with a range of cloud storage providers, so you can keep your work stuff on one, your finance on another, pictures of kittens on a 3rd, etc.
"But as data gets larger, backups get larger and take more time."
"It doesn't and they don't," I say. "As time goes on, disk speeds increase – which is where we're backing up our data. And data isn't really increasing all that much anyway."
Did the research subjects have to pay for the phone call?
I can imagine some female research assistants on the end of a premium rate line. Self funding science.
Twitter is so 2011
Maybe she's realised the social media thing won't last.
Is the UK in Europe these days?
I can never keep up.
cut and paste from a press release?
"Windows Sever is without doubt a corporate IT operating system standard while SQL Server one of Microsoft’s products growing at an insatiable rate."
I don't disagree with the message, it's the 'without doubt' and 'insatiable' words which I don't think mean what you think they mean.
Rufus said that
but it wasn't the best quote from the film, though possibly one of the cleanest...
Bombers rather than Fighters
The article refers to drones replacing manned fighter planes but talks about them replacing manned bombers instead. I'm not sure what test have been done of attack drones carrying out missions in a hostile airspace while being shot at by manned fighter/interceptor/pursuit aircraft.
yes, technically great stuff, their remote mirror options are wonderful and they can be tuned at design time to really perform with decently sized data sets (not the Big Data thing but multiple active Terabytes).
Hard Drives, Printers, Personal Systems Group, System x, Processors, Storage.
Hardly an IT company any more, never mind being THE IT company. :(
Steady on, CHAPS!
El Reg miss worst possible title for this article, must try harder.
feeling a tad bit paranoid ?
Since they're beside an abattoir, I think they're entitled.
Check out the bumper bars
I believe (from racing development) that the steel front bumper bar can be replaced with the aluminium equivalent from the XJ40 for substantial front end weight saving (and steering lightening) while there's an outboard disc swap which doesn't save anything except time in replacing pads.
I'd love to read more about the logic controllers you used on the air con and alternator.
Re: But the good news...
I'd rather subsidise them directly
That should allow a few other OS's to work too then
It doesn't ship at all to Ireland
“ships free to most countries” me arse
Does Lenovo need a Printer division
and some market share?
How many inches?
Apply say they're a 6+ but they're more like 5.5. Girls say that sort of exaggeration is common online.
How long before they can extend the pipeline to all EU countries?
Can't Scotland expel England from UK?
Since it's the union of separate countries, couldn't Scotland (perhaps working with Wales and Northern Ireland) vote to expel England from the UK? Scotland keeps the EU and close ties with celtic neighbours, while England is the one who's off on their own, as a majority of it's MPs seem to wish?
Re: What’s in a name?
Actually the Ireland Act 1920 set up Northern Ireland as a separate country, fully independent so while it's a successor state, it's not the same as the previous Kingdom or Ireland.
I'm looking forward to the next referendum, deciding when the Duchy of East Scotland should separate from the Democratic Peoples Republic of West Scotland.
Paid by Apple?
I presume that status of being first in line would wane if any product launch is deferred to, say, December and that those in line are not going to be those employed on Wall St. Some, if not all, must be getting an incentive from Apple to join the queue. I've only witnessed one iPhone launch queue (outside the Glasgow store many years ago) and it was mostly composed of the 'geniuses' selling the item in the first place.
Re: so annoying
Cunning plan, sir - anyone who does not get out of the way is obviously not human. Much cheaper that SETI.
How many Apple products do they have?
I mean surely they only need one of each on display and a stockroom holding a weekends worth of sales? Why does it have to be big?
Not just a queue then?
it'll be nice to see innovative breaking news and fresh content, not just a queue of press releases that didn't merit space mid week.
May as well name it in a way that places blame directly and obviates any subsequent renaming.
Can't you recover from Dropbox?
Surely all business critical data is on that, so management can get at it from home or their phones or their cousins neighbours laptop?
I read today the UK is planning a spaceport in Scotland
As the Gruadian has it, "Six of the venues under consideration lie north of the Scottish border, where the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) named Campbeltown airport, home of the Mull of Kintyre music festival, and Glasgow Prestwick airport,...The other Scottish sites are Kinloss barracks, a former Nimrod patrol base; RAF Lossiemouth, a home for fast jets; RAF Leuchars and Stornoway airport on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides."
I assume Ryanair will provide connecting flights from London Stornoway and that all is subject to the Scotland remaining within Great Britain. They will need to remove all the skinny guys in tracksuits to avoid scaring aliens but the Commonwealth Games should be over by then anyway.
Is Great taken?
It will be now
Hope you enjoy your next visit to Ireland more
The weather can be a bit dodgy so it's always a good idea to go to one of the parts with a pub.
I'm worried that El Reg readers feel they may be affected
I may be mistaking the demographic but I'm pretty sure I don't want to see naked selfies from any of you. If I buy a cheap android on eBay, I'm going to make sure it's entry level and in a pink case.
25K either too much or too little for me
If it's not information I'm willing to give away over a pint, I'd need to be paid several years salary for it. A 'veteran techie' should be raking in more than that.
Re: "All your bank details are now in the cloud. Have a nice day."
The article refers to Applications, the last paragraph does say data is the next problem.
I think a hybrid model will evolve with data held locally and metadata and analytics on new platforms while a whole lot of encryption is practiced between the two.
Amazon advertise it but Dublin scobes make it happen
I wonder how long before 'fulfilled by skangers' becomes a service?
Honestly, no clue here, just a wall of WTF's crashing on this comment.
I'd have to agree with the message
Even if it does come from Microsoft. I use various custom and rooted Android ROMs at home but I wouldn't let me near corporate data with them, even letting me on the WiFi would be a risk. Windows phone does lots of phone like things well and can be locked down well using skills that are already in the marketplace. Bring Your Own Dropbox is a short term cost saving with endless hours of security consulting cost waiting in the future.
