How exactly does it know which appliance is using what? Unless monitoring is done socket by socket, this sounds like an expensive solution looking for a problem.
Wouldn't it be much better just to offer a power usage audit for those that want it? Scoring appliances against an average.
"And formatting a PC hard drive doesn't securely wipe it either. Is this really news, or just someone trying to sell their product?"
MrWibble, I was thinking the same, I'd use 3rd party software to zero a drive the same as I would a phone or tablet or Mac...
Skipped to the end, at least El Reg remembered Power PC, many (the verge, bbc) had forgotten.
However my point? I don't really have one.They were never competitors, there was never any hate, it was just a marketing campaign.
Apple embraced the IBMPC platform in the end didn't they, perhaps they need to move back to RISC now that ARM is getting to Intel like levels of processing...
I don't give a crap what Apple do, I know they are evil. I look at these specs and see a £400 cheapo computer.
What annoys me is that this will be copied. Now that Apple have done it Dell will do it, once the hatred has died down HP will do it.
Paid more than they earn.
Any figures on how much these people were paid to add Taxi's to the Oyster card?
Grooveshark.com were hit by a DDOS over the weekend too.
Ya beat me to it!
I was gonna say, if you think you need an app to view porn you deserve the discomfort...
If Apple are so successful...
Why does he feel the need...
Best speakers I've found on a laptop
Weirdly the best laptop speakers I've heard in 14 years of IT were on the HP Chromebook 11, not a popular choice of machine and the speakers being under the keyboard is a bit odd but the clarity blew me away.
Also seen posing as a FAX with the same dropbox links.
It's a trick!
Re: Or the alternative opinion
No more updates, boots quickly.

What Google are forgetting
Google are not the Internet, removal from Google isn't removal from the Internet. This is not a free speech issue.
Remove all admin rights and install SteadyState.
VM regularly reset the 'Allow VPN Pass-through' setting to off.
He bought the wrong one.
Let FB have the big clunky! I want the Avegant Glyph anyway.
Patent troll cashing in
C'mon really? A PIN on a contact card vs a PIN on a contactless card?? Why would they award a patent?
So far it seems to have only been used to start them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3x_kYq3mHM
At first I didn't like it
Then I found where they hid everything, it's a much cleaner design. I like a lot. :D
Their HD looks good to me. In fact their SD looks pretty good too.

Ahem, kinda like... http://ispspeedindex.netflix.com/uk
Re: Do they call it free market?
"This does not look like capitalism at all."
Funny, it smells just like capitalism.
Re: @ Grease Monkey
It was discussed in depth for years by El Reg.
Youview is too expensive for a connected TV receiver, we need a free version of the Sky NowTV box, something cheap that does free/bbc Internet telly and is secure so they can stick the broadcast channels over IP as well without licensing issues.
Re: A bit puzzled...
Also caching, lots of caching. This actually happened to Teletext in it's final years (via capture cards), it made it very fast to use.
Re: A bit puzzled...
I assume the bandwidth may be a little wider.
So this whole article
...is about the word cracked?
Professional charities, I've never understood it.
A man with many thumbs and many pies http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Elstein
Sounds like Elstein is telling people what he wants them to hear, clearly there's some money he can't currently access.
This will be slower than current systems, mobile data is notoriously slow in most shopping centres and malls in the UK.
All about the money
These big companies seem to think they have an automatic right to our spectrum, I don't like their meeting, I don't like them publicising their meeting, I don't think they are in any way qualified to give the faintest idea of a good use for this bandwidth.
The digital dividend was always a dream but clearly there are some expectations in the minds of those who thought digital switch over was a good idea, vastly expanded Freeview, and the killer app whitespace networking!!!!
When The iPhone was released...
I was shocked.
I remember saying "HP are gonna sue their asses"
I guess HP felt that Apple stealing the 'i' from iPaq for use on the 'i' in iPhone was not a strong enough case. It's a shame Apple don't have their sense of shame.
Which setting do I need to choose...
Which setting do I need to choose to block Page 3 of the Sun and the Daily Mail Sidebar of shame. Also I'd like to block any pictures or Theresa May? Is this possible?
While we are at it how about blocking any leaked Tory speeches prior to 2010?
Re: MS WINDOWS 8.1 UPDATE - ZERO DAY EXPLOIT?
They do that a lot these days, making you say Yes to say No.
So is there a huge gaping security hole?
MS have had almost as many U-turns as Cameron this year.
Re: From a Nexus 4 owner
I never found it to be slippery, my previous phone (Nexus S) was far more devious when attempting to escape my hand.
I did worry about the glass back and got a case for it pretty soon though.
Facebook didn't post it, it was one of their users.
Can we one day have a PM who gets the Internet?!
I never liked the fiddly little Start Menu of old, the Win8 start menu is way more spacious and organised.
Just one thing bothers me... How do I remove the Start button? It reminds me of the bad old days....
Re: Instinct over IQ
Snide or not those comments are indicative how a lot of people perceive both brands. The opening comment was exactly what I expected to see when I clicked comments, and it still made me laugh.
For me Apple's brand slipped when they released the first iPhone, it had less features than my Sony Ericsson of the time, I felt it didn't live up to the my experience of their computers.
I'd never heard of Burberry before the chavs made it famous. :)
Re: Save XP
Correct you could opt for XP until 2010 but the end of life date was known by then.
Still has the queen in it
Refusing to swear to her was how I finally stopped going to the play-football-in-a-hall rather than learn something club and was finally able to watch Tomorrows World on a Thursday evening. :)
So for those of us with slave drivers as bosses
Will a download be available?
Re: Good idea
>> Let's be honest 'at work' doesn't have to be that accurate
Maybe you don't want the phone on vibrate when you are waiting outside for the bus (we don't all drive).
Re: So if I live in Barnsley
I see a new use for this! :)
...don't get thanked, have you not seen the news lately?
Mine too. Not a problem...
Re: It will
It's not about capitalist/childish dreams of have the biggest, best or most expensive.
