Are you saying that Apple caused Sandy so that they could make NYSE close and then announce the shakeup? Wow! Is there an app for that?

I cannot get my head around the subtitle and it is nagging me!

"Confidentially admits" means that the Reg shouldn't be allowed to publish that they have admitted... while if the "Confidently admits" then it would be.. ?

Not only the iPhone

Recently had to fill in the form for a Canadian Visa where they only had "England" as an option and "Great Britain", "United Kingdom" were not listed. Nor were "Wales" or "Scotland". So basically anyone in Scotland and Wales have to fill in as English?

Re: More like 60 per hour.

It's called mass texting... If she sends it to 10 people everytime she texts, then that brings it up to 1 text every 20 minutes?

On the other hand, dim screens on HPs do not seem to be only affecting theier netbooks. On screen brightness, my £400 pound Dell beats on my manager's £1500 HP Elitebook!

Sunny Spain suspends solar subsidy scam

archengel46
Thumb Up

Isn't it about using what resources you've got?

Spain is a country with high amounts of solar power and little in the way of fossil fuels. Before this, there wasn't technology to get power out of the sun, and hence the fossil fuel infrastructure was built (will someone tell me that it was without subsidies?)... Now that there is a way to avoid paying fuel bills, and hence the government is trying to build up another energy infrastructure with subsidies...

I might have missed the point somewhere, if so, pray let me know.

O2 to step back from unlimited mobile data deals

archengel46
FAIL

You're on the wrong...

Add On.

Unlimited Data

Fair Use Limit: 1 GB each month

X-Series - 1 GB should be more than enough to allow you to surf websites, use ISP email and download podcasts

X-Series Silver & Gold - 1 GB should be more than enough to allow you to surf websites, use Mobile Mail and download podcasts

We will let you know by text message once you have reached the fair use limit and ask you to cease using the included data services for the remainder of the month. If you continue to use the services we may suspend your data usage until the next month. This will not impact your access to other X-Series services.
