And we all thank God for that.

Too Long; Faded Out
For those who've not heard of him, think Baron Harkonnen without the style, wit, grace, charm and manners.
And a correction while I'm here: The Australian Broadcasting Commission became the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in 1983.
Nice Article. You Must Be Proud.
I'll get m' coat.
Quite right. Most sensible people who detest Apple's "We invented everything" when they didn't and the "And we're gonna sue" followup simply want Jobs to get real, not get dyin'.
Get well, Steve. And get real.
No need for the troll icon, Wombat
Not when everything you say is true.
A quick Google search of "ato accenture change program budget overrun" will unveil a litany of Accenture cash-pissing.
Vulture II, not LOHAN
Marks must be deducted for all designs in which the name of the aircraft was wrong. The project is LOHAN, the rocketyplane is the Vulture II. Have some respect, people. This is Lester's baby you be calling the wrong thing.
RE: Not just me then
Looked more like "Juno-one for tennis?" to me.
I don't suppose there's
any chance of Apple being declared a vexatious litigant?
I assume that YOU* is pronounced "You Star", and was gonna make a joke about it being pronounced "You Footnote". After reading the comments from the IBMers, You Footnote doesn't seem like such a joke.
I'm an ex-HPer. Their employee purchasing program might as well be called "YOU worthless piece of shit. No you can't have a fucking pay rise. Or a chair. What, you think this is still EDS? BWAHAHAHA!!! HIRING FREEZE TIME!!!"
3cm, not 3mm. You'd need to take more than a tile.
Totally on-topic, it'd be great if The Register could produce a poster-sized PDF of El Regian... El Regal??... units of measurement. 'twould be a marvellous educational aid.
I was hoping for
Cock Kills Cock
Ellison May Be A Prat
But Benioff is gonna lose this argument. Ellison's pitch simply boils down to big IT shops - banks, governments, whatever - seeing the benefit in the whole quick-provision-of-a-small-slice-of-our-overall-computing-capacity model, but done privately for security reasons, ie not done under someone else's ultimate ownership.
Pretty simple, really. It's amazing that Benioff doesn't get it, given how simple he appears to be.
Pooh-sticks and baby donkeys. This is a good day.
Easy There Tiger...
We don't want to see anyboby upsetting anybody. I always like STB's postings... makes me feel like a freaking genius.
At least Mr Jobs is making some dosh from the World Cup
It doesn't look like the south Africans are: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/world/africa/10314858.stm
Sarah Palin has a voice that could strip the paint off a dump truck.
No longer a search engine, eh...
How odd. I can still search using Google, even when they do some crazy stuff like have a bit of fun with their logo and sell unobbtrusive advertising.
I do wish I had your passion, though. You'd make a good footballer....
Couldn't agree more, o kindred spirit
TBBT is hideous, and typical of a very old genre - The American Index Finger Comedy... Fonzie walks in shot, strikes pose with index finger extended, "live studio audience" ruins collective trousers, repeat for 11 years at 26 episodes per year...
Give us peace.
So, Mr Hurd...
"... worked to extract costs from the EDS services biz"
Yeah, by transitioning staff into a job code lower than their EDS one so that they are technically overpaid and will never get another pay rise. And then they leave. That saves lots of money.
And by not paying bills "contracted prior to EDS integration". To the extent that HP then had to send an all-staff email reminding everybody that "there are some important steps we all need to take to ensure on-time supplier payment, and avoid unacceptable damage to HP's standing in the market place". Yeah, right. Like "we all" didn't want to pay our bloody bills.
"You all" is gonna have to learn the hard way... Hurd way, perhaps. "Me all" left and in doing so saved HP some money... in the short term...
