I watched and thought the same as you all. That's not a fault as such but it should of been spotted by the "engineer" It made me quite angry, as my own home repair business failed, and mainly because I wasn't ripping off people. I refused to con people, and refused to profiteer.
The interview that was carried out in front of the slime balls solicitor was humorous though, I just hope that idiots like that are run out of dodge!

It's my quote!
Lester, you have made my day
I thought they made him get off his bike and use the plebgate, surely it's a crime when the esteemed gentleman that is Mr Whippy Mitchell is forced to use the gate of the masses!
*coat? no mines the cloth sack
Damn - I thought it was just me they were blocking
because of some anti-ginger agenda, and now I find out that all us red tops needs to do is pay. This is racism impure and simple.
Do emails count as advertising? As whenever I receive one from Ebuyer it usually states a product and a price in the subject, but the price is usually for a different offer.
Electricity first, if nothing else to scare the hedge mumpers.
Re: Boris S. you don't seem to understand...
No one needs the inferior crap produced in Japan be it Apple branded, Microsucks, Acer or Foxconn - to name just a few
Just as well it's manufactured in China then, or did all the references to China somehow display as Japan? If so, that would be the Chinese manufactured display you are using. maybe you should send it off for repair to a factory in China so that a Chinese worker can repair it.

FFS - Plod has a long way to go with security.
I for one am now going to use vigilante mobs in future when I need a perp sorted.
Not just for McKinnon but for all citizens of the UK. The extradition balance needed to be addressed. It's the first thing that hapless May has got right.
Re: Not consequential
I think by posting messages on compromised computers about how piss poor the security was shows that he was aware of what he was doing, and who he was doing it to.
He has to be seen by the authorities that he is held to account for his actions, but the Americans justice system is considerably harsher than the UK's.
At the time it was only alleged to of infringed patents, it had not been to patent court to have this proved. Whilst I am sure they had a good case the fact remains that for a year the software was not been sold on the App store. Put simply in Daily Mail terms
Won't somebody think of the children.
GREAT! NEW! MAYBE! YAHOO! WILL! IMPROVE! SOON!
Re: Where's the balloon gone ?
They landed the capsule, as it was rather expensive and very re-usable. Unsure what they did with the balloon.
Nice to hear that this is over and the development team can now get back to supporting this app. At the time I called apple a bunch of twunts for suspending the app, I still stand by those comments. Only because I think this could of been handled in a better way.

I am going to ditch Google and say hello Apple after my appalling attempt to get a nexus - wrong consignment number, no tracking, still waiting for refund.
I mean, the customer services for Apple can't be any worse can they?
Proud to be a wimp
Truly I am a ridiculous specimen.
When they were going through the final check-list and he was moving his chair I was all sweaty palmed. Why was I nervous, I was sat on a comfy sofa eating crisps.
Re: Dear Reg,
And while your at it can you remove the acronym RBS and give it its full title, as well as stating National Westminster bank, trading as NatWest.
Oh, on second thoughts don't bother. I've just remembered that I have a life.

Well it seemed like work to me!
Google confirmed funding for 60 UK telly producers to make YouTube clips *presumably of kittens in hats and dogs scrapping their bum along the floor.
er, maybe it's because BT infinity customers have been having a whine about it and El Reg was made aware of that fact, rather than trawling Bobs Bargain ISP forum(other shitty little forums are available) for 3 men moaning about access to goatherders.com
It could be worse, I could be sitting the wrong side of a firewall with a stupid filtering of live streams.
Oh FFS, it seems that I am.
As long as you provide a link to THE REG ONLINE STANDARDS CONVERTER then I don't mind.
Although when it comes to distance can you use the simplified version of.
Closer, close, quite far, very far, a long long way.
Re: 2 things
You are indeed correct, I wouldn't deface a tribute page with sick jokes. I do find it odd that people do. I guess I was brought up and not dragged up.
And sadly no, I am still at a loss as to what the wife wants for supper.
Zorin? I thought that was Julian Assange
1. This "man" is obviously a sick little fecker, with poor judgement and poor taste. No doubt he is not fully aware of the laws he is breaking, because he's an eejit. Also, he may of had his own privacy violated as someone apparently screen grabbed his tasteless wall post and posted it on the tribute page. Truly these kinds of Jeremy Kyle show fodder should just fecking do one.
2. I have an issue with facebook tribute pages. The whole idea of liking a page dedicated to cancer or whatever else I find offensive. It is meant to be social media. These pages don't make me feel particularly social. I am not saying that they should be off the web, as they do have a valid place. But i don't want to be reminded that the worlds a fecked up screwy place when I'm trying to find out what my wife wants for tea.

What utter, utter bastards!
I hope Andy, Ceri Alex and Sid have tweeted a response to this heavy handed approach. I realise that not everyone like Mr Tumble but denying kids access to Rastamouse is pretty dread!

*oh yeah, I have remembered. RC aircraft are difficult to track on RADAR and seem ideal for smuggling. Granted, it couldn't lift immigrants so people trafficking is out. But I reckon it bring other things.

No no he's not dead, he's, he's restin'!
A customer enters an apple store.
Mr. Balmer: 'Ello, I wish to register a complaint.
The blue shirt does not respond.)
Mr. Balmer: 'Ello, Miss?
Blue Shirt: What do you mean "miss"?
Mr. Balmer: I'm sorry, I have a cold. I wish to make a complaint!
Blue Shirt : We're closin' for lunch.
Mr. Balmer: Never mind that, my lad. I wish to complain about this Steve Jobs what I purchased not half an hour ago from this very boutique.
Blue Shirt: Oh yes, the, uh, the Apple CEO...What's,uh...What's wrong with it?
Mr. Balmer: I'll tell you what's wrong with it, my lad. 'E's dead, that's what's wrong with it!
Blue Shirt: No, no, 'e's uh,...he's resting.
Mr. Balmer: Look, matey, I know a dead Steve Jobs when I see one, and I'm looking at one right now.
Blue Shirt: No no he's not dead, he's, he's restin'! Remarkable bloke, the Apple CEo, idn'it, ay? Beautiful plumage!
Mr. Balmer: The plumage don't enter into it. It's stone dead.
Blue Shirt: Nononono, no, no! 'E's resting!
Mr. Balmer: All right then, if he's restin', I'll wake him up! (shouting at Siri) 'Ello, Mister Polly Parrot! I've got a lovely fresh cuttle fish for you if you show...
(Blue Shirt hits the cage)
Blue Shirt: There, he moved!
Mr. Balmer: No, he didn't, that was you hitting the cage!
Blue Shirt: I never!!
Mr. Balmer: Yes, you did!
Blue Shirt: I never, never did anything...
Mr. Balmer: (yelling and hitting the cage repeatedly) 'ELLO POLLY!!!!! Testing! Testing! Testing! Testing! This is your nine o'clock alarm call!
(Takes iPhone5 out of the cage and thumps its on the counter. Throws it up in the air and watches it plummet to the floor.)
Mr. Balmer: Now that's what I call a dead CEO.
Blue Shirt: No, no.....No, 'e's stunned!
Mr. Praline: STUNNED?!?
Blue Shirt: Yeah! You stunned him, just as he was wakin' up! CEO's stun easily, major.
Mr. Balmer: Um...now look...now look, mate, I've definitely 'ad enough of this. That CEOis definitely deceased, and when I purchased it not 'alf an hour ago, you assured me that its total lack of movement was due to it bein' tired and shagged out following a prolonged patent dispute.
Blue Shirt: Well, he's...he's, ah...probably pining for Cupertino.
Mr. Balmer: PININ' for CUPERTINO!?!?!? What kind of talk is that?, look, why did he fall flat on his back the moment I got 'im home?
Blue Shirt: The Norwegian Blue prefers keepin' on it's back! Remarkable bird, id'nit, squire? Lovely plumage!
Mr. Balmer: Look, I took the liberty of examining that CEO when I got it home, and I discovered the only reason that it had been sitting on its perch in the first place was that it had been NAILED there.
Blue Shirt: Well, o'course it was nailed there! If I hadn't nailed that CEO down, it would have nuzzled up to those bars, bent 'em apart with its beak, and VOOM! Feeweeweewee!
Mr. Balmer: "VOOM"?!? Mate, this bird wouldn't "voom" if you put four million volts through it! 'E's bleedin' demised!
Blue Shirt: No no! 'E's pining!
Mr. Balmer: 'E's not pinin'! 'E's passed on! This CEO is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! 'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed 'im to the perch 'e'd be pushing up the daisies! 'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-CEO!!
