Using Telstra is its own punishment.
What does the FBI have against foot fetishists?
Or did they mean paedophiles?

"This is the kind of person that works in a basement..."

Keyboard - you owe me a new one.
"Possibly more noble intentions, but awful execution"
So - no change then.
Except noble intentions. That's new.
MS have never failed to meet my expectations.
I've always expected it to be absolute shite, and it always has been.
Where did he find the stolen celebs?
"Australia's left-of-centre Labor Party"
I'm not sure whether this is a story about a different Australia, a fictional Australia, or a prediction that by 2017 we'll have a left-of-centre Labor Party.
We certainly don't have one now.

You don't want to anger the volcano god.
Gee - who'd o' thunk it?
Besides everyone I mean.
For the first time they can honestly say that it's not a bug, it's a feature.
That's three spellings of the moon's name in one article. Would you care to try for four?
Could they be a problem?
Re: Maybe it's for the best...
Isn't that what they call a masturbator?
"Compute" is a verb
Trabant would be more accurate.
Re: Ha ha ha ha haah hah haaa

A classic case of stupidity being its own punishment.
Re: Leagues per hour?
But what's that in hogsheads per furlong?
The gods preserve us from this buffoon.

"a Windows 8/8.1/10 install"
I suspect you mean installation.
What a brilliant young woman!
Is the US the last country on the planet to ban hand-held mobes while driving?
Re: an executable file with a double extension.
But surely they'd see the double extension and...oh...wait...Windows users.
But surely they wouldn't allow important systems to run unapproved exe files and...oh...wait...Windows users.
A pattern is starting to emerge.
That would be "still".
How about allowing AdblockPlus for Chrome? Problem solved.
iOS only? Seriously? So it could only reach - what - 15% of users?
This is the kind of brilliance that we've come to expect from Turnbull.
"Hey - this product we've got really stinks. People hate it."
"Well, we'd better fix it then."
"You mean make it work better?"
"Don't be stupid - we'll do what we've always done!"
"Ah. Change the name. Gotcha."
Re: Oh boy, probably continuing the ever-worse skype releases...
Skype turned to shite as soon as Microsoft got its grubby hands on it, and it's getting worse. Now it's just untrustworthy shite.
El Reg, you really need to find correspondents who have a basic command of English, or use a sub editor.
Australia has an opposition now?

No doubt there was much hilarity as the Chinese pored over the plans of the Flying Lemon.
Re: Hershey stands for a unique chocolate flavour..........
"Hershey chocolate" is an oxymoron.
Anyone who adds a modifier to "unique" - as in "very unique" should be shot into space in a canon to examine the pillars first-hand.
Really - did you actually pay that 10 year old to do that?
Dreadful. Just dreadful.
It's nearly 2015
And people are *still* using Windows?
