"panicky fans moaning to Twitter saying shouty things like "Get it fixed NOW!!!" and "PLEASE IM LITERALLY GONNA CRY PLEASE SORT IT OUT.""
Some people need to get a life
If T shirts come in extra fat then I may be tempted....
When paypal is contributing 40% of revenue to the company why would eBay spin it off?
Icahn just buys into a business and then tries disruption tactics so he can make a profit, he should get out and do a real job.
I was going to use loads of swearwords and call him names, but waited 5 minutes to calm down before posting.
Ooh, Virgin Media get told off again.
They must tremble at the mighty power of the ASA...
"Peter Jones' other assets include the firm that makes the rather yummy Reggae Reggae sauce."
That sauce is absolutely crap, we make better at home ourselves. There has been some bloody good marketing to get that onto the supermarket shelves.
We should outsource border security to the Australians.
Has anyone seen Border Security: Australia's Front Line?
Those fellas know how to do it.
Just more spin...
My company has a website, does this mean we are now a digital business?
Re: Good job Iain-Duckegg-Smith doesn't work at Tescos.
The thicko in me had to look up the meaning of the word 'tautology'
This is a good start, I'm pleased to see Sourceforge responding in a fairly positive manner.
Re: Crosses several boxes for me
Currently it is iOS only, but there are plans for an Android app on its way by the end of the year.
Happy Birthday Alistair, have a pint.
Well done GIMP peeps, I wish more outfits would take a stance against this cloaked spam crap.
Re: give me a dislike button
Personally, I don't think it warrants historical status, I'm neutral regarding Apple, but I just think this is silly.
Steve was a bloke that started a business.
As I said, seriously?
If the facts are correct shouldn't "Twitter-approved buyer GSV Capital Management" be the company being sued or am I missing something?
This brings a whole new meaning to the term dickhead...
Re: All hail the mighty teasmade!!!
"Now, if only someone could come up with the baconsarniesmade..."
Just get this baby and put a timer on your plug socket:
Xerox can put forward a very simple defence. They use their own copiers, you know, the ones that screw up the OCR and change numbers.
If anyone needs a reference.... http://forums.theregister.co.uk/forum/1/2013/08/06/xerox_copier_flaw_means_dodgy_numbers_and_dangerous_designs/
IBM's proposal may have been cheaper but did they include the typical cost over runs?
That is all.
If Apple can patent that I'm gonna patent everything I can think of, chairs, doors, tables...
I'm gonna be RICH!
Is this an advert?
I think they have taken enough liberties already
Re: How do you like your porridge?
Um, sharing a cell with Fletcher...
Re: Oh dear
How do you like your porridge?
"It is virtually impossible to use the data to get directly access to the bank accounts of those affected,"
I do like it when words like "virtually" are used, it is either possible or impossible there should be no grey areas.
"Kissing the vibrator"
Were there any extra curricular activities?
We need to know and see the video!
Why can't companies focus on making a great product instead of all this litigation?
The only real winners here are the lawyers.
Tencent in China - 10TB
Now that is impressive, but how secure?
I guess the NSA can't rummage through your files there......
"The UK's spending watchdog has scolded the Department for Work and Pensions for so far wasting £34m of taxpayer money"
I thought they would be praised for wasting so little compared to other projects that ran over budget, failed, were crap etc...
I don't use Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, all a waste of time in my opinion as I'm a consumer not a product for their advertising chums.
"The Register has very kindly done the legwork for the Mail by passing on the details of the blunder to the ICO."
heh heh, have a pint
"However, Xerox says that the problem is essentially due to the settings users have put into individual copiers"
Nope, the problem is due to the corners cut by Xerox. Modern digital Multi Functional Devices should replicate what is being copied or scanned without interfering with the content.
Placing the blame on the user is a pretty poor way of excusing an inferior product.
"A CSC spokesman told The Register that no redundancies are planned"
They forgot to include the word 'yet'.
How long before CSC announce a rationalisation of the chimps and hundreds get booted out of the safari park?
I stand corrected, my apologies, I am a little hard of thinking...
Upvote for the correction
Why am I not surprised?
My company has partnered with BB in the past and I was, how should I put it, somewhat surprised at their aggressive nature in pursuing the ££'s even at the detriment to the client.
Abstain - To refrain from something by one's own choice.
Based on that definition I think the abstained votes should not be count for or against.
If I was going to outsource to this bunch of mercenaries I would make sure that the contract included a clause stopping the work and jobs being sent outside of the UK forever and not for a fixed term.
I thought something was going on. I noticed that one of their two warehouses in Northamptonshire had shut down around three weeks ago.
That is all.
"Last year, Wandering Dago was denied a permit to sell food at the Empire State Plaza in Albany, on similar grounds"
Maybe they should of taken the hint and gone for a name change.....
I've just had a thought, Westminster City Council should be charging him council tax.
"According to the PCS, HP is transferring those Sheffield roles to Newcastle and north of the border to Erskine to bag a multi-million pound grant from the Scottish government."
And that is why Scottish Gov should tell HP to sod off.
But they won't because that would be an ethical action.
No video, but the Daily Fail has some crappy photos....
