The USA is responsible for Mexico now?
The enraged ... Silva then struck his wife
Should that read 'engorged'?
I'm not a fanboi but normally I don't have any problem with companies expecting you to upgrade to the new model. But claiming Siri is PART OF the 4S when it's actually part of the OS, and deliberately turning it off on older hardware, is massively cynical.
The general public don't realise this of course, but if it does become public knowledge - and it's non-technical enough it could well do - some sort of uproar seems possible. The public like paying for shiny new handsets, but not being duped when the old one is perfectly fine to begin with.

I find that quite an impressive feat actually.
In civilised nations...
... you don't simply kill people for breaking the law. It's not RoboCop.
re:Funny how this 'isn't that big of a deal' when it's Apple
Um. Apple make basically 2 tablets. v1 & v2. Some things only run on v2. There are dozens of Android tablets with different hardware, and half a dozen different versions of Android, plus vendor-specific overlays.
PLEASE tell me you don't genuinely think Apple tablets are as fragmented as Android?
This seems very weird. Multiplayer home fun is the basis of Wii and GameCube success. Nintendo have a good record for proving us wrong when we think there console will flop, but I'm rather worried by what we're hearing. I LIKE that the Wii is cheap and fun, even if it's long in the tooth.
A single-core 1.5GHz chip is equivalent to a Pentium 4, which could run your whole desktop PC rather well!
What do phones DO with all this power, given that most apps are pretty simple compared to stuff like Call of Duty or Photoshop?!
I never realised things were so confusing and complicated, so this was very interesting. However I have to point out the writer has a real bee in their bonnet about Java, and that rant is rather bizarre.
As a Physicist and a Bible-believing christian, I don't think so. Scientific atheists (or more commonly atheists who claim to understand science and Christianity but are in reality rather ignorant of both) like to claim believers use God to fill in the gaps science hasn't yet explained. That WOULD be a very weak position, but it's not accurate. The two are not incompatible.
"it works best with its tongue firmly in-cheek"
So go watch Johnny English...
Has this got anything to do with radioactivity?
Or is it simply for soaking up specific elements, regardless of isotope?
"If anything that's a reason to respect the move"
No, really not. They're a bunch of arrogant nerds who are used to getting away with being idiots because they're behind a computer. A cartel could buy some serious hacking clout of their own.
Did they let the work experience kid write something or is El Reg publishing reader letters now?
And when was this true: "Once upon a time in a galaxy far away, PCs started up instantly: lean operating systems leapt from chips in machines that were not saddled with obese software and weighed down with bloatware."
Isn't it bizarre how the movement from fixed phone to mobile has come full circle to a device you interact with without touching... voice and gesture recognition.
Yes - but what if some famous/influential person has one. Specific targets could be more worried about someone only having to loiter outside the entrance to their workplace.
Your argument doesn't actually address the question asked. Nobody asked IF Windows had security vulnerabilities. The fact similar things haven't happened on *nix/OSX doesn't mean they lack such holes, UNTIL people try to find them as fervently as they do on Windows, and fail. Until a non-Windows system has similar majority share to attract the miscreants, we won't have an asnwer.
Android the new Windows?
If Android gains a significant majority then won't it be Windows all over again, as miscreants focus their energy on it?
This will actually be a good chance to finally test the claim that Windows is inherently less secure.
