Ten... boomboxes

Facepalm

When are we going to start seriously marking these products down...

for only being i-brick compatible?

To limit your product to devices from a single manufacturer is a little closed minded and restrictive nowadays, don't you think?

Surely it's a no-brainer that bluetooth should be included?

NASA: Beam me up some power, Scotty

HoverDonkey

It may take 190GW to power the 1st stage of a Saturn V rocket, but surely most of that energy is expended in lifting all the fuel the rocket needs off the ground.

With laser transmission about 90% of the weight of the rocket is gone, as there is no fuel required.

Vegas vid-poker hackjackpot bonanza duo face charges

WTF?

I'm on the side of the defendant!

All he did was take advantage of shoddy programming on machines put in place by the casinos.

Maybe, some time in the not-too-distant future, a casino customer can lose thousands, but then sue the casino for taking advantage of the fact he was drunk, and a bit thick even when sober, in order to fleece him of his earnings!

Tory councillor arrested over 'stoning to death' tweet

HoverDonkey
WTF?

Didn't it used to be a very British thing...

...to make light of tragic circumstances as a kind of coping mechanism? And isn't sarcasm and irony an integral part of our supposed national sense of humour?

Surely people can detect sarcasm in a written sentence? Or is everything written in text "by law" supposed to be taken at literal face value nowadays?

The thought police are alive and well and living (and ruling) in the UK.

Where do we draw the line here? Is there even a line any more? What happened to common sense? Is the whole world going utterly mad?

WTF?

This is El Reg!

What do you expect?

If you want "on the fence" reporting, then look at CNET, not here!
