TheRegister is an excrement of a website
TheRegister is an excrement of a website. It is supposed to provide critical articles, but then it falls for the unscientific denier propaganda. What's next? Astrology?
I do not recommend any more, and I advise people to stay away from it.
It's not 'WIN WIN'. It's 'I WIN DOUBLE, YOU LOSE'.
I would worry about the extreme weather conditions that bring the cold of the North Pole down to Britain. Check the weather, what made some the last few winters so harsh?
For a better interpretation of the solar minimum, make an effort to read at http://www.realclimate.org/
TheReg, out of touch
Dear TheRegister zoornalist,
Ubuntu is not dropping GNOME. Ubuntu still uses GNOME even with Unity. Ubuntu just replaces gnome-panel with Unity. It's that simple.
Also, there is no 'GNOME 2.3.2'. It is GNOME 2.32.
Worst beta? Best beta? It's like the daily worst ever thereg article. Get the details correct, willya?
Here is the mess-up paragraph 'Natty Narwhal is a big deal for Canonical. The company has dropped GNOME and adopted Unity for its default interface, which is designed for multi-touch. Also, Canonical has killed the separate netbook edition of its Linux distro, and combined the netbook edition with the main code. Beta 1 took a hammering as the worst Ubuntu beta ever for numerous bugs left to fix and for poor workflow in Unity, which lacks the functionality of GNOME 2.3.2. ®'
"well-known open source watcher Florian Muller"?
Can we be a bit more down to Earth when describing Florian?
Such quotes make people stop reading these articles.
Here is a more balanced overview of Asay's departure,
Troving the cables
Just because a piece of information is found in the cables does not really mean that the information is really correct. In this case it's the 'an informant said' situation. Informants get paid when they say things.
Change for SIX BILLION
Right, climate change might be good for some rainforests?
At the same time when you discuss change in the climate, you need to factor in the SIX BILLION people that need to adapt.
If there were a thousand people on this earth, you can move them around when climate changes. But with SIX BILLION+, you do not get the option.
Harold Lewis says: GET OFF MY LAWN!
It is getting increasingly common with scientists who reach an old age to get suckered in things like denialism. He is so silly that he allows to be used by the deniers for their nefarious purposes.
Stay away from Windows Phone 7!
Unfinished phone, what for the third revision before considering to buy this thing!
Retract the article!
Please retract the article. It is epic fail, as if theregister is the same thing with Daily Fail.
theregister.co.uk fails at reading comprehension
You better read "Sun's role in warming the planet may be overestimated, study finds"
If climate issues are being trumped as it is shown, what can we expect with IT issues from TheRegister?
Microsoft spents $1billion on marketing, makes $15 per phone...
How many phones does Microsoft have to sell to make up the marketing cost?
1000000000 / 15 = 66,666,666 handsets.
That's right. 66.6 million handsets just to recoup the marketing expenses.
Then it's the development cost, before it actually makes a profit.
This will be another expensive fail for Microsoft. They are screwing the desktop/server markets to fund these pet projects of epic fail.
It's sad to follow 3% of climate scientists who deny climate change.
Perhaps the 97% are in some sort of communist conspiracy?
All those downloads...
Microsoft has every intention to pump the numbers.
Since Microsoft does not specify whether these are completed downloads or merely download attempts, it's possible it is the latter.
“I'll that one a chance”
Someone was heard saying “I'll that one a chance” and then disaster.
And let a new meme start. - Windows Phone 7? “I'll that one a chance”.
One a related note...
One a related note, the BCS voted to still keep the spending secret,
The BCS receives about £30million per year. It's big money and there is revolt by the members on the management of the money.
