"So you've never driven a car with tiptronic box, environmental control or electric handbrake? Probably a good thing."
Electric handbrakes are NOT a good example to make your point. Absolutely the most stupid "improvement" to cars in years. Whomever came up with that solution looking for a problem needs putting up against a wall and flogging to death with a rotten turbot.
I would dearly love anyone to come up with one convincing argument why electric handbrakes are an improvement.
Re: Let me get this straight @Tom Welsh
I wish I could upvote a hundred times, I couldn't agree more. The whole world would be such a more efficient, profitable and happy place without the buzzword spouting suits and marketeers desperately drumming up a consulting industry that nobody wants or needs (except others of their ilk).
'There’s plenty o' talk about how Windows 8 will be “cloud-powered".'
Give me strength! I never thought I could detest the moniker "Cloud", that every marketing droid who pretends to know about IT drips on about, more than I already do.
They might as well call it powered by fairy dust.
A warning from fiction?
Sounds like the start of this novel. Which is thoroughly enjoyable with just a little plausibility btw....
Re: and why the hell...
Agree with the sentiments entirely but is there any reason you are causing yourself the admin headache of not using WSUS?
Men killed by cock
Following the recent reports on The Register of two separate instances of men being killed by their cocks I suspect an angry bird terror cell in training.
They are probably planning an attack on a crowded public area as we speak, this was the test firing - just like the scene in in the empty barn in Black Sunday (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075765/)
I for one welcome our Feathered Overlords.
That photo is just crying out to be used on the caption competition! Maybe El Reg should run one?
Is this in any way related to the "Too many fart apps" story - too many damned angry birds now!
I'm glad to see the the grammar jinx affects journalists as well as newsgroup and forum commentards!
I do have to wonder why they appear to be using a men's urinal as a cable run :-/
Burn the heretics
Burn them all! How dare they embrace the possibility that there are other factors than the demon Fossil Fuel.
It's probably $700,000 but he's allowing for the half he will have to give to his wife
I wonder if she was just trying to say he had cauliflower ears...
Are people now so reliant on technology that they haven't got the gumption to stick the damned key in the lock and turn it when the car doesn't click and chirp at them?
Or maybe it's 90's Roger Rep man that is affected - he still thinks it cool to press the button over his shoulder from halfway across the carpark.
Did you not hear about bad split the band had? That was why Hissing Sid bit poor Timid Toad, the murderous bastard.
That reminds me of a bad "joke" my maths teacher told us in primary school:
When God told the snakes to go forth and multiply the adders got stuck, so he told them to use a log table.
