Re: 88 Clicks as of 9am this morning...
You think they did this because they thought it would get a massive number of respondents?
Re: Well done everybody.
Re: Apps schnapps.
I believe the idea behind the app was to integrate more tightly with Windows 8, allow live tile support or some such feature. Not something I'd be interested in, but not something a device agnostic web app should be doing...
Re: Uh, who'es the idiot?
The one who cant spell "who's"?
Re: no matter what massively misinformed people on the internet might suggest
You cite no references for what you say and then you imply that people who think differently to you are stupid. You look exactly like any other misinformed internet person.
re: a case of shouty arse
It's fucking endemic around these forums!
*sigh* once again, the irony....
Actually he was illustrating how one person's "do gooder" is another persons "good bloke making a positive difference". It's not that tricky to understand, but it's good that you keep trying....
Re: are you seriously suggesting we euthanise irritating people?
Fuck it, he's a dick, but he's OUR dick!!! At least he puts a name to his posts so it's easy to ignore him...
Re: I can't believe you said that!
Well you obviously have a degree in spotting sarcasm...
I can't believe you said that!
How dare you! Just because my life is an empty meaningless pit does not make me a crackpot! That is so OFFENSIVE!!!
Re: Quick Eadon!
We need your input on this thread: http://forums.theregister.co.uk/forum/1/2013/05/08/cdorked_latest_details/
Funny, you're normally so quick to post on any story that's linux related...
Ner ner ne ner ner! My country's bigger than yours!!!
For fucks sake, they said this place was getting juvenile....
Re: Was out with a full sized DSLR last weekend and nobody gave a damn
Sweet! The police have obviously stopped harrasing people for taking photos then!
Re: I don't think that's because they're still justifying the $1500 outlay to their spouses
You single by any chance?
Re: headline grabbing hyperbole
That's what I come here for. Judging by your upvotes it's had the desired effect of getting the phandroids all batey....
Re: Two years too late
no, it wouldn't, it would be just another android in a sea of similar devices.
Youtube does HTML5.Apps are no longer needed.
Wow, gun jumper! HTML5 implementations on the different handset OSs (and manufacturers builds for a certain Googly OS) are way too inconsistent to be claiming apps aren't needed. If you know your market and target the most popular devices you can cover just them, but fixes for one renderer can break another, and as soon as you start shipping device specific stuff you may as well be developing device specific apps.
It is definitely the way to go though, I think we just need a few successful HTML5 sites to push the manufacturers to agree on exactly how the standards should be implemented....
you don't need Win+D. Use escape, the classic "Get that full-screen shit out of my face now" button! That's not user unfriendly!
Re: fixed that for you
Ah, one of those helpful unix bods you were just talking about!
I don't get it.
When I get into work I boot windows 8, the stupid metro thing pops up, I hit escape and I'm in the desktop. From there it's pretty much 7, all the things I use every day are docked to the bar at the bottom of the screen just like 7. From a user perspective Metro is shit, but it's not exactly getting in the way. I don't really see what all the moaning's about...
Re: They may struggle with that one
Have none of you been watching Apple vs Samsung? Why would prior art be an issue?
Re: I may be dead wrong
You are. The idea that political activism is tied to a particular operating system is genuinely pathetic. Real activism requires you to get out there and do something, no OS required.
Good use of, commas though.
Re: Can't see the downvote
votes. Mentioning downvotes is like a red rag to a bull round here.....
re: People with responsibilities
Responsibility? I think the word you're looking for is greed.
Re: I am actually humbled at just how accurate my predictions were
Humbled? Really? You sure you know what that word means?
Re: don't let me stop you, feel free.
You're the one claiming that it's fine on a modern browser. Do you now concede that you have no idea whether the site works in Chrome?
@JDX Yeah, loads of benefits claimants know about Linux.
Why shouldn't people on benefits know about Linux? Are you being a pompous dick?
Re: I realise that's not the disaster we'd been banking on.
Disaster, Banking. On a story about benefits! Ha ha, like it, very droll.
Of course, a form appearing is all it needs to do....
Bloody lefty propaganda, eh? Even the logos red! It's like the fucking bbc round here!!!!!!!
>> the correct approach is to report it without the lurid "we're all gonna die" headline <<
No. Stupid headlines are part of this site. If you don't like them, don't read them. I think they're one of the best things about the Register, I particularly enjoy the way they get various fanboys in a lather...
Re: isn't what I call music. Not even remotely.
So what. You don't call it music but millions of people do. And Vlad's attempt to somehow separate "tribal drums" from other forms of music just shows the ludicrous snobbery going on here.
What both of you seem to be saying is that you think about music, and when you think about hip hop it doesn't make sense to you (plus you only seem to have heard ganster rap, a popular genre but by no means all that hip hop has to offer). Try feeling your music instead of thinking about it. Maybe these other forms will start to make more sense to you then.
Re: Did you really need the political commentary?
I find it's valuable to read things written by people who's politics I disagree with. You certainly can't engage with them in any meangingful way if you don't at least try to understand where they're coming from.
Random Rant of the thread! Take an upvote!
Re: old enough to remember the 70s.
I remember. If only Dave could buy the prole's votes by giving them houses, eh?
Re: @Vladimir Plouzhnikov
Though obviously you've proved your thorough understanding of hip hop with that extract from De La Soul's "3 feet high and rising"....
Re: "Music" is the problem
The term "audio quality" just isn't applicable to music I don't listen to or understand. That crap would sound the same coming out of anything as I'm just not listening.
Other people liking different things, which in reality are the wrong things, is the problem.
Re: "No. Because I'm not an idiot."
You are a bit up yourself though.
Re: balanced reporting
El Reg is perfectly balanced. Read more comments on more articles, you'll find people who think it's biased against MS, biased against Google and biased against Samsung. It's biased against all of them, if you find that too difficult to grasp then go and read some pro-apple site.
Re: I assume you are in UK
because reading the whole article, where the author states he's in Spain, would be too tricky?
The problem is that streaming doesn't suit my needs
Me Neither! No one ever thinks about us!
Re: What's with all the bad language?
It's not a big deal. I personally like a bit of cussing if it adds emphasis, and it's only the last paragraph for fuck's sake....
Re: golf clap
Eww, nasty swelling around the head of your club?
Re: Simply posting verbatim what some idiot is saying online
So you don't want comments enabled on this article?
Re: Not really anything to do with Linux....?
Hmm, and by extending that argument a lot of windows malware is nothing to do with windows. Hey, it's not my fault you run as admin all the time....
It sounds like what you really meant was "la la la, can't hear you!!!"
Re: Non story disguised as ad-magnet?
Your post isn't funny so doesn't need a joke icon. My satire was bleeding obvious so I didn't add one either.
Re: Non story disguised as ad-magnet?
Yeah, and they just use it to drive idiots to post comments, again upping the ad revenue.
Do they think we're stupid?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Re: Extra, extra!
I think it's more: "Extra! Extra! Perfect device manufacturer releases imperfect device"
Re: It's not really your business what patents they are is it?
I do hope that's irony. Just in case, the problem is that it's difficult to avoid infringing patents if you don't know what they are.
Otherwise nice one, very droll!

Oh, like windows used to be to other microsoft products...
