It really is.
Over one hundred comments for something that is completely and utterly irrelevant.
Who would have thought?
Well, Parkinson I guess.

"I. Do. Not. Want. Another. Smeggin'. Adaper. In. My. Life."
It is that easy.
On the other hand, the captain should kind of grateful that the engines can't take him.
More like disrupting their supply lines.
Because it is the default browser in Android.
"Do people not care about privacy?"
If they did Facebook wouldn't even exist.
I have a third generation Moto G, it downloaded one update when I bought it in July and last month it got another.
It is supposed to get a Nougat update, but I'll believe it when I see it.
Absolutely, after all it's clear that someone that can't even deal his own party would have made a great president.
Yep, the KKK is going to be just delighted when his orthodox jew son-in-law ends up being the real power in this presidency.
Nah, that makes you the anti regcommentard.
They had backups, that's competente not luck.
Not even close really.
So, let's see if I got this straight.
Lots of British people here being amazed about people from other countries obeying traffic laws.
Lots of British people here complaining about bmw drivers disregarding traffic laws.
Everyone in the UK has a bmw?
Usually I am one of the most pacific, even passive, people you will ever meet.
But political nuts that insist on turning any thread into political shit make me wish you could legally shoot them on sight.
Think of it as the persians invading Greece with the biggest army ever mustered.
They should have won, easily, but the puny Greeks were so used to fighting among themselves that they won.
Absolutely, after all this hike depends on the value of the pound relative to the dollar, so the collapse of the EU will have a lot of influence on it.
And, lets not forget, the UK sells a lot in the EU, therefore the collapse of the UE will be great for the value of the pound.
Deadpool is a Fox movie.
But then Pulp Fiction is a Disney movie, produced by their Miramax label.
Don't be absurd, Google don't sell your personal data, that's their biggest asset.
They sell ad placement based on that data that nobody else gets to see.
And swipe notifications, don't forget them
Actually, on the first trial Oracle was ordered to pay Google's legal bills, but with all these appeals and retrials I don't know if that still stands.
You wouldn't happen to browse ElReg with a GPS enabled gadget, would you?
People usually forget that it was the B-Ark passengers that survived while everyone else died.
And they died precisely because the B-Ark people weren't there doing their jobs, phone sanitizing of all things.
I don't know if Adams intended it, but it looks to me that it was a joke on people who think of others as their inferiors.
Looks like some doctor really wanted to take the Ig noble price home.
My nan went the same way and it is truly painful.
If it's any consolation the average 'healthy' life expectancy keeps improving and they recently announced that a new drug is able to dissolve the protein plaques that destroy the neuron in Alzheimers.
So, medical research does work, even when founded by millionaires, Rockerfeller for example funded the eradication of the hookworm.
Yes, yes, last year we had the first case of Diphtheria in Spain in thirty years because the parents of the child agreed with you.
The kid died, but I am certain the parents will take a lot consolation in your ADR figures, besides thanks to them the evil companies making the vaccines made less money. If that is not worth seeing your child die I don't know what could.
Meanwhile some of the kids that were with him in summer camp tested positive for the bacteria, but since their parents aren't complete morons and vaccinated them, those kids are alive and well.
"The typical 386 system did not have enough RAM to properly run Linux."
Not at all since Linux was first developed to run in 386 chips.
Actually the announcement for the first public release said:
"It is NOT portable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably never will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that’s all I have "
Which is kind of funny in hindsight.
On the other hand, even Linux ended up dropping support for 386 CPUs.
That future has been 'not so distant' since the financial crisis started, somehow it hasn't happened.
The problem is not the coal-powered electricity, the problem only comes when using Spain own coal.
Except that Google already bought Waze about three years ago.
When it comes to work safety there is no such thing as personal responsibility, it is always a lack of training or supervision.
As far as the law goes if he had been trained to push the button while not being in the way there would have been no accident.
But even if he had been trained, as far as the law goes there should have been a supervisor checking that people didn't push the button without following proper procedures.
And no, I am not kidding.
And they pleaded guilty in case a trial would have been even worse for them.
No, but if you have a samba server it will cheerfully encrypt those files from a windows computer.
So, backups, but you knew that already.
There is also more than one FBI agent.
"FB's business is the collection and sale of personal data"
He can hardly admit that, they are not in the business of selling personal data, what they do sell is ad placement.
The data they keep to themselves.
I am afraid they are being realistic.
Seriously, H. Clinton vs. D. Trump, is that the best the US can do?
Indeed, why do people waste their time in Facebook when they could be doing something interesting in real life like posting in The Register.
It boggles the mind, it really does.
So, the "Petrol lobby" created the scandal to make ICE engines look bad and press governments push for stricter controls and emission limits.
Sure, makes sense to me.
Not exactly, Mitsibushi falsified the fuel economy data, not emissions.
They already have a big chunk of Facebook.
But blame them too.
The Silver program would have required OEMs to release upgrades for their silver phones.
Naturally, they refused.
"If there was an open police case, then why were these guys still going about their business?"
If you had read all the way to the third paragraph you would have seen something like:
"Flanders and Callum are serving life sentences"
Well deserved if you ask me.
And Pauli postulated the existence of neutrinos so the equations would fit even though he thought we would never be able to detect them
And yet, we now have neutrino detectors.
So, now they are postulating the existence of something called 'dark matter' and 'dark energy' to make things fit, and, certainly, they may end up going the way of Phlogiston or Aether, but then, we may also end up detecting them.
As Einstein said: If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?
As for scientists not explaining clearly, well, I am nothing but a lowly engineer, and yet I am used to getting blank stare from mundanes when I try to explain something technical, so?
"Stop believing everything you read."
That's easy, after all nobody does
"Stop being a consumer"
Sounds nice, but I Iike eating from time to time.
"Stop arguing for no reason"
Again, nobody does, but then I can see why you would like your word to be taken as gospell.
"Stop pigeon holing yourself."
Whatever that means
"Eat more asparagus."
How can I possibly do that without being a consumer?
Sorry, I was wrong, you are not funny, you are hilarious.
But, for some reason, people insist on taking you seriously, talk about being gullible.
Dude, you are funny
