Re: "It's called free speech"
The point is, the employee didn't know if they were legally allowed to deny him access or not. Nobody has commented on this. But being a typical arrogant lawyer he uses this as a threat. Lawyers do this all the time and since the person they're doing it to is rarely a lawyer, they can get away with anything. Nobody dares deny a lawyer.
I knew you lot were a bunch of whinging sad-cases, but seriously sticking up for a LAWYER?
"It's called free speech"
Well then sir, here's your £8.70 back. Didn't you read the small print which says we don't legally have to carry you on our plane?
Typical, a lawyer trying to scare people to get what he wants.
What do you expect the EJ person to be doing, pushing the plane? Perhaps out with binoculars looking where it had got to?

Important to who?
Re: this should give everyone a pretty clear idea ...
If I owned an A.C. super-boat I'd damn well be watching it rather than attending a conference too. Those things are incredible.
I think Pro on a 8" screen is pushing too far. OK for the common W8 stuff it's fine but you can do all that on RT, and I don't think regular apps will suit a small screen. Plus trying to fit a fully fledged x86 PC in an 8" case is really sounding hard to me.

Maybe go back and read what he wrote again.

Or, her lawyers will tear him to shreds if he voluntarily accepts less, because it affects what she'll get.
If it's full-time for multiple months, you could buy an ad on JobServe or similar. You might also try advertising on jobs.joelonsoftware.
Re: Nipples are "like snowflakes",
Fun when you first see them, but boring once you've been staring at them for a week and you need to go outside?
Re: Waterproofing is pretty cool though
I was thinking the same... add a feature that was a joke and get all the media coverage.
Diddums, so it's OK for you to call people names but not for people to call you on being an obnoxious jerk?
PS: I've never owned an iPhone.
If you can talk out of yours, they can probably use theirs as fingers.
Sometimes what is best for Google is better for users too. They may be doing it for business reasons, but I like the idea of conversations in comments, and seeing if anyone I know has commented, more than what 46000 poeple who can't spell think.
I see three provider-specific links, but what is the actual RSS URL for me to plug into my preferred podcast tool (Juice)?
just a 15-minute walk from El Reg's bureau in the city
I hope you've sent your man down to question them about this in person?
So all this "nobody is buying a 5c" talk is nonsense... even in America in in 4 people choose a C over an S?
I'm not sure about the colours, but don't they do a white C - perfect for someone who wants a cheaper iPhone? It's basically a 5 after all.
Re: CD/DVD drive
You're going to say it's not all-in-one because it has a MOUSE? What kind of retard ARE you?
Re: all-in-one iMac
I bet it doesn't include a modem either.

Re: Can we PLEASE get to grips with this "Apple are expensive" line?
I think they are still very expensive on pure spec. £1750 for a PC with 8Gb of RAM and an i5 seems a lot... this is not a top spec for a desktop PC.
I actually believe design is worth something, and that screen is very pretty too, but I don't think arguing "it's a reasonable price for the spec" is tenable.
Just for laughs I spent 30s on Dell and got a 12Gb i7 & system for £1050.
Re: Did you really need to explain what an iMac is on a tech site?
Actually, I just did go to the Apple store.
Since there was no i7 model listed I assumed El Reg were correct. Hiding it as a final customisation offer wasn't something I spotted until I double checked.,
Did you really need to explain what an iMac is on a tech site?
I do some iOS development on my 2008 MacBook which is starting to show its age. I have to remind myself more and more frequently that a Mac Mini would be a more than adequate replacement, rather than splashing out on a 27" iMac.
Shame there's no i7 version though. If you're going to splash out, you might as well do it properly!
"We will still surprise people with leading-edge hardware."
As in, it'll be a surprise if they produce anything leading-edge?
Your old photos aren't going to be much use to advertisers. One assumes if the advertisers needed these photos they couldn't be stored in this way!
Very interesting tech, but moving to such vibration-sensitive drives seems like a step back. The benefits must be significant to outweigh such delicate hardware...
Re: Campaign for real English words...
I'm sorry but in a complaint about new words being devised, you use 'buzzword' without irony?
Re: They still don't get it.
Pro isn't aimed at the masses but as a "business tablet".
Actually looks quite nice
...I just can't see any reason to buy one (RT that is). Perhaps styling and design is an area they hope to score points on. In my personal view, iPad is still a mile ahead of even top Android tablets in terms of "how pretty the box is" and sells a lot of units on that basis.
He's not even looked at the multiplayer yet.
It's too early.
Still seems more secure than a PIN to me.
Re: This is the most assine article ever....
How has it been proved wrong? Creating a 2400dpi latex fingerprint copy is not exactly an easy process.
Re: Funny really ...
So you think a burglar is going to follow someone around, waiting for them to discard an empty soft drink can, before fishing it out of the bin and then nicking their phone?
Re: How easy is it REALLY to get your fingerprint from a phone?
The only means... no. By far the biggest.... yes. Someone nicks your phone and wants to be able to unlock it.
How easy is it REALLY to get your fingerprint from a phone?
The idea that a modern phone is a perfect fingerprint retrieval surface seems to make sense, but is it really? Maybe when your phone is new and clean, but what about after you've been touching it dozens of times a day? Won't the prints all be overlapping and smudged?
what appears to be a giant inflatable cock
Considering the band, I think it probably is supposed to be a cock disguised as a bird
none of the people deriding the 5C have actually seen one in the flesh, let alone touched it. Apple surely could do with passing one around inside the shop!
Re: Oh Jeez
You might have failed to notice, but the big curvy things at the end of those sentences denote a question is being asked, rather than an idiotic statement being uttered - that's apparently something best left to you.
So a creating a new mobile OS is the new bandwagon? Is the actuality that this is a bit like how there are many Linux distros but it's still the same underlying OS?
Happy about WebGL
It's a cool tech. Although not happy about the idea I might personally have to write JS to use it!
Re: If is crashes like IE10 then I'll pass
Your PC is likely to blame. Or it's one of those freak cases - you can find at least one person for who any app you think of simply won't work, to the mystification of developers.
think of the light shows this makes possible
Re: Queuing already?
Yes but they like being in the rain.
Not really any sadder in the grand scheme of things than sitting outside watching a man try to hit a red ball with a plank for 5 days.
You realise for most users this is a non-issue... how many home users upgrade their OS? Only nerds and businesses are affected; nerds will easily manage and businesses work differently.
a)That's not Apple's fault
b)No surprise developers stop supporting older versions when Apple won't let anyone install them
Perhaps app-developers will continue to develop for older iOS versions, or keep support alive longer, if there is a large enough userbase to make it worthwhile.
Re: Basic questions for DARPA projects
How much in the world of medicine has its roots in military R&D do you think?
Given that we're talking about the KERNEL here, not Linux as a whole, I'm genuinely interested what all these companies are changing all the time - why is the 2010 kernel not any good for 2013?
Re: No PC Version...
The future is clearly whatever platform developers develop for; it doesn't matter a damn how fancy it is. Wii is proof enough of that.
Re: Food for thought
If you can afford food, housing and new cloths, plus (I assume) a computer and/or smartphone, by what metric are you under the poverty line?
