Important to who?
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.
A tie in with Pringles on the cards?
Maybe go back and read what he wrote again.
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?
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.
Fun when you first see them, but boring once you've been staring at them for a week and you need to go outside?
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)?
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.
You're going to say it's not all-in-one because it has a MOUSE? What kind of retard ARE you?
I bet it doesn't include a modem either.

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.
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.,
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!
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...
I'm sorry but in a complaint about new words being devised, you use 'buzzword' without irony?
Pro isn't aimed at the masses but as a "business tablet".
...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.
It's too early.
Still seems more secure than a PIN to me.
How has it been proved wrong? Creating a 2400dpi latex fingerprint copy is not exactly an easy process.
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?
The only means... no. By far the biggest.... yes. Someone nicks your phone and wants to be able to unlock it.
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?
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!
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?
It's a cool tech. Although not happy about the idea I might personally have to write JS to use it!
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
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.
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?
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.
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?
Genuine question, not an attack.
Perhaps true but if we assume that $1bn existed already, concentrating it in one person's bank account is probably the least beneficial option.
