Surely the successful hacker known as Pinkie Pie must be a shoo-in for this equine prize?
Mine's the one with the rainbow-coloured hood, thanks.
Re: Great, but what about us four-eyes?
I wear glasses all the time and have never had any comfort issues with the Logitech G930s, if that's any help.

Re: Raptor is NOT the highest-tech aircraft
It's the Lightning II, not III, just for clarity.
Not quite - El Reg is quoting the quiet little intro bit that comes BEFORE the main 'dum-da-da-dum'.
Re: extract the maximum amount of cash
Well, not really. If they wanted to extract the maximum amount of cash then they should have negotiated a better sale price than $25,000, not started playing three card monte with the IP rights (allegedly).
It was from Syndicate Wars - and was indeed very good.

Just so you know.
Justia says yes
Looks like Picsel voluntarily withdrew from the case - http://dockets.justia.com/docket/delaware/dedce/1:2009cv00100/41844/

You are David Icke ...

Not all Sony products stocked, either
Don't bother trying to find accessories or parts for a PSP or Playstation in a Sony store however - bizarrely enough, they don't stock anything to do with them.
Sealand, your time has come.
More like Action Force - Storm Shadow was Cobra's answer to Snake Eyes!
No card needed for me
I rang up the Customer Service line and read the Riot Act at them - they removed the block (taking two working days to push the switch, but hey, it's O2) without asking for credit card details or any of that nonsense.
I also took the time to have a whinge at why my BT Openzone access no longer seems to work either!
In that case...
... they'd better get this comment system fixed in a week or I'm blowing The Reg sky-high!
I would suspect ...
... that Lewis was only recognising that the UK military would probably voluntarily disarm before they contracted to purchase from a former Warsaw Pact supplier - which is a shame, because they do needlessly exclude some good kit from consideration.
There's the little matter ...
of Value Added Tax.
Probably because ...
Probably because Apple are not in a dominant or monopolistic position in the smartphone market, unlike Microsoft's position in the PC home operating system market.
American beer with yeast at bottom?
A couple of years ago I sampled a bottle of Blue Moon beer (which I think is from the Coors brewing company, oddly) and as I recall there was sediment at the bottom of the bottle - would that have been yeast?
You have my sympathies then - I owned all three of those at various times and found the user experience got progressively worse as the line went on.
If you have more than five Apple devices ...
... that you would want to use this on at once, are you really going to care about spending another $2 to get an extra five uses?
I demand the return of the word 'mobe'
If 'lappy' can get by the censors then so can 'mobe', dash it all!
Ugh, no thanks.
Northern Ireland poorly served by DAB
There's also the small point that Northern Ireland's only non-BBC multiplex carries about six or seven commercial stations and that's it. Not exactly the hundreds of channels that are touted elsewhere.
Plus the Beeb is having to add seven new transmitters in order to get a half-decent signal out for their channels. The commerical mux is also going to have to expand the transmitter network to improve coverage and signal strength.
I'm also told that the fact that the Republic is still using Band 3 for some of its analogue television signals causes difficulties with DAB transmission in Northern Ireland, so matters may not improve until the South switches that off.
RE: ...and the winner is!
@ Stu: I actually enquired about changing network in an Orange store last week, they seemed to think that all I needed to do was get my PAC code from O2 and that would be it - I could sign up to the £35/month plan without any trouble. That's the only plan I asked about but I would assume that the other plans would be equally available.
