A telling off and being accused of being smelly!!
Don't tell me, the Advertising Standards Authority were brought on board as advisers weren't they?
Standard Form Letter
Which ends with this copy & paste line:
"told <insert offenders name> that the ad had misled customers and must not appear again in its current form"
<Carlsberg voice> The ASA, probably the most useless regulator in the world, </Carlsberg voice>
"The one that hasn't spent any money with them for some time?"
Nope, I purchased a Windows 7 Acer laptop for the other half some time ago.
Good point though.
I have an 8 year old HP laptop running XP. I can't see it coping with the new flavours of Windows so have no plans to change the OS.
There are only a few sites I visit using it, my Mrs has a Windows 7 laptop if I want to explore, and of course, at work I'm using a company laptop so there is no access to norty/dodgy sites.
I understand the commercial reasons for discontinuing support for XP, but why alienate your customer base?
As I was reading this I thought "this smells fishy" as will some of the app users I expect...
My money is on the Winklepicker twins seeing as they are such staunch advocates of Bitcoin as demonstrated by the creation of the Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust.
Can we outsource Parliament and the idiots working there who are allowing this ongoing stupidity to continue?

Facebook user, enough said?

You have won a pint.
Does he feel born again?
Looking for a womb with a view?
After his pics are posted all over the interwebs does he feel like a real ****?

El Reg boffed by a boffin!
Can the said boffin issue the sarcastic comment anyway as I would like to see what a boffin defines as sarcastic.
HP need to employ an accountant to review the Simplivity financials before committing to a buy offer.
We are told to compute in the cloud
and I think to myself aloud
Compute using a chromebook
I don't think so
I couldn't give a fook
pinterest is a known bug, well it bugs me anyway...
I would prefer a data wipe instead of my bank account being cleaned out.
There's no pleasing some people, you're bleating about a company taking a responsible attitude towards customer security, but if they remained lax and indifferent you would bleat about that too.
Good to see a company being proactive over security rather than waiting for a breach.
HAL will be disappointed for missing out on the job.
That is all, have a pint and carry on...
This predator should be banned from the business world, he has no interest in a company, just how much money he can take out of them. This is stifling growth and possibly, innovation, he should start a patent troll firm, I'm sure he would do very well at that.
Tell me again, what is so good about cloud computing?
When I worked there until 2006 there was circa 2,000 bods employed across 3 buildings, they must have shed a load of jobs under the table.
If Carphone Warehouse has a HQ in the same town then I apologise, just let the 500 go, poor buggers.
Anyhoos, DSGi are well known for their *shortsightedness when it comes to cost cutting, just make a few more jobs redundant, save some cash, the chief exec gets a bonus and then moves on when the brown stuff hits the ceiling whirligig...
*Yup, I got hit with redundancy and after the second time just walked.
Does this mean we'll be able to buy extended warranties for mobes?
Stock Bubble Burst Saga...
What was that horrible noise throughout the video?
Re: >> I read this on Saturday
How about a pint instead?
I read this on Saturday - unpaid, in my own time.
My time was wasted and I want a refund for the 25 minutes of my life lost (15 minutes reading and 10 minutes writing this).
In my local lingo it would be The dogs bollocks...

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...

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.
