Balance

Sometimes El Reg has gone too far but not often.

For those who think Big Bird of IT is selling out, read the article properly.

I hope to keep seeing more of Dabs and Worral plus the occasional serious article.

BBoIT will continue to poop on those who deserve it.

IT contractors raise alarm over HMRC mulling 'one-month' nudge onto payrolls

Trollslayer
Bronze badge

Not about IT?

Maybe it is to try and deal with all the zero hour contracts that the likes of Sport Direct use?

If so then some differentiation needs to be made but at the moment many people at the bottom don't get benefits because they have a job and are treated as spare parts by these so called 'employers', called on at any time IF they are wanted and can't take another job.

This series has fluctuated a lot and there are valid comments here but the last five minutes of this made it the best for a quite a while, good basic drama.

You're right to fear a second dot-com crash, says Intel VC boss

Trollslayer
Bronze badge

Just for Intel and friends

The smaller players have been getting stronger, partly due to being able to put together their own chips due to the likes of ARM.

Add IoT and AMD, Intel etc. are in trouble.

Nvidia are into high performance computing so they have diversified enough.

What is money? A rabid free marketeer puts his foot in lots of notes

Trollslayer

The British economy is not an island

So if our economy goes through high inflation and we need to borrow money (e.g. government bonds/gilts) what rate will lenders/investors charge?

Or I could say the economy doesn't exist in a bubble yet Corbyn seems to.
