What if you reskinned the doors, wings, bonnet and boot with carbon-fibre? That bonnet alone must weigh a tonne.
Also those bumpers look damn heavy and I bet the headlight glass is 2 inches thick :)
Keep the seats though. One can go TOO far!
Is there a completely ad free option yet?
I guess modded ROMs will become a lot more popular then?
Besides, there is already regulation for unlocking a phone tied to a particular network, so presumably that legislation would be extended to this method.
Re: So it'll be fixed soon?
I wish the stable release auto-updater had a checkbox to allow milestones too.
(can't be bothered to flash ROMs manually on all my devices)

Re: What about considering your EO customers!
BT Openreach engineer said they will be putting a fibre cabinet in the grounds of the exchange for EO customers 'at some point'.
Not holding my breath though. Our exchange serves 110 Residential premises and 8 non-residential.
It can't go in the exchange for some reason. (perhaps because our exchange, WSARY, is the size of a single garage only narrower, no joke)
I wish they would first fix the congestion issue here, though. I get 8Mbps (the maximum possible for this exchange), but it slows to a crawl at busy times.
I hope he invests a large amount of his wealth into this venture.
That's how I've been obfuscating email addresses when people insist on having theirs on a website.
Seems to me there are a lot of celebrities out there who get the wrong advice from their security services. Perhaps celebrity security services are all about muscle and have no understanding of protecting them from media and technology.
I fail to understand why this still happens. Pammy's tape, whilst not pilferred off the internet (but widely distributed there) leaked in 1998. 16 years ago!
Do celebrities have short memories? If you're going to create nude images of yourself, you need to make sure you look after those EXTREMELY well. Unless you want them to leak of course.
Given that there have been many leaks of celebrity nudes, and yet they still take nude images of themselves and put them in insecure places, I can only assume they want them to be seen.
Or it's negligence. Either way, no tears.
Can it be?
A modern broswer that uses less than 100MB per tab? Here's hoping.
90% of everything is crap?
What if we applied that logic to operating systems?
And it will be that type of people dismayed that the Highways Agency are now starting, at long last, to erect screens around road traffic accidents.

Re: Apple's Yawn and Windows Apology
As I understand it, Windows 9 will configure itself according to the hardware it's installed on and give you the option to change the default if you like.
It was remiss and arrogant of them not to offer that option in 8. It also didn't help that ODMs didn't make much of an effort with touch-screen laptops (a shame really, hope it still catches on, after all, it's good to have the option of touch).
It just reinforces the understanding that you skip a release and then wait for service pack 1 :D
As is the same with too many companies to mention who, rather than investing in research and development, would rather line the pockets of their shareholders.
The whole shareholder thing makes me weep, I understand the need for shareholders, but that does not justify the absolute greed evident in some large corporations.
I wish it were, that the employees could be the majority shareholders, rather than the top 10% leeching the fuck out of the system for their own ends.
Hmmm, posted this 4 days ago, about half an hour after the article appeared and it took three days to get this comment on.
Re: Might be better, but still not good
I took 2 screengrabs of Chrome recently, using well over 500MB of RAM for 1 tab (the 1st screenshot it was using 900MB for Experts Exchange) THAT is absolutely crap.
I'm now using Firefox for a while to see if it's any better. At the moment it's using 254MB for 2 tab.
My first PC had 4MB of RAM and could just run Windows 95 and IE4. I know website were alot simpler then, but really, 900MB for 1 site?????
So, to summarise, modern browsers are fucking terrible.
I believe the Orb (who also collaborated with Gilmour on Metallic Spheres) also honoured that on Evil 39'
Much looking forward to new RDJ (who has stated that whilst he doesn't generally enjoy rock'n'roll, he does have an ear for Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd)
'Press conference: ME ME ME ME ME ME ME (cont'd pg 94)'
Ironic then, that it's The Reg giving him voice.
Re: Correct horse battery staple
<= 8 character passwords have been iffy for a long time now friend. (I'm taking it that the quotes are literal and don't belong to that password)
Have a quick look at some of the public rainbow tables and then consider what tables people with serious intent must have.
It's interesting to hear that GoodLuckGuessingThisPassword is that much stronger. I believe a lot of people don't think passphrases are worth their salt (intended, sorry)
That being so, just make minimum password length = 20 and let users put anything they want as their password.
But when all is said and done, there needs to be a better way because, as someone pointed out earlier, it will only get easier to crack them as the power to do so increases.
For the record, the reply was for Kevin Johnston
ElReg's thread system doesn't quite work
Awwww - did you miss this bit? 'It will also be possible to split your screen so that a big window will be devoted to games and a small one to television programs.'
I actually thought the dongle price was reasonable.
Hauppauge USB dongles run to more than that and you're also getting support and warranty from a huge multi-national, rather than an eBay seller (which should in theory mean a lot more)
Your post therefore was quite negative.
Either that, or you can only use SpiderOak when they update the canary status. Not very useful only being able to use the service twice a year is it?
A 10 year warning was given and it was labelled XPocalypse when it came!

I seem to remember roller skating being the hardest challenge in this game. Akin to trying to do 4 rounds in Paperboy. Decathlon ruled supreme though. You could also bring down a bird with the javelin in that. The amount of right sleeve cuffs I wore out playing that game :D, especially long jump.
Begs the question; why are they allowed to keep trading?
Forget browser wars, how come email clients still render what the fuck they like with no concern for any standard whatsoever?
Always so many comedians on Microsoft threads. I'm rolling in the aisles. Pass the needle and thread, I've split my sides.
Really though anyone have some caffeine so I can make it to the end of this comment thread? YYAAWWNN
Commence the downvotes you stuck-in-the-muds
(why did I take the time to post this? why did you take the time to repeat yourself once more?)
Or just use uTorrent Remote?
There was, for a while, a Blackberry cloud-based platform, that was canned. We had been using it too and it was quite good.
Still, no-one round here uses Blackberry's any more, so...
Re: No Lumia?
The article also ironically states they're phones you can afford to lose down the beach.
What's the exact definition of landfill? Does it have to include an absence of sand?
So this lets you jump your Azure data around without ending up in a house of pain?
Shame to have to retire SBS 2003 really. Glad to retire most of the hardware it's running on though.
Maybe P2V it with only open ports to Exchange.
Isn't this Streisand's favourite app?
Just to add to that, the practice of passing you around various agents who use the Chinese Whisper get-out. You never get the same agent twice and your original complaint is watered-down or otherwise modified in each transaction until unrecognisable from the original.
eBay are the best (worst?) example of this. Never the same agent twice, problem never resolved. 8 years now and counting.
Until yesterday we were using the admittedly, free, No-IP service for redirecting to our webcam. We probably would never have become a paying customer, so it's probably no great loss that I added an A record at our domain for the (now) static IP hosting the webcam and we no longer need the No-IP account.
To some small degree, that has affected No-IP's business (though god knows how if we weren't paying them a bean) and it must have had worse repercussions elsewhere with paying customers.
I hope Microsoft's apology includes some kind of financial compensation.
Perhaps Microsoft could set up and police their own DDNS service.
Love the first picture, showing the STILL non-responsive Reg site :D
Wait... what year is this?
I must thank them for drawing my attention to this.

'Oh, cut the bleeding heart crap will ya? We've all got our switches, lights, and knobs to deal with, Striker. I mean, down here there are literally hundreds and thousands of blinking, beeping, and flashing lights, blinking, beeping and flashing - they're flashing and they're beeping. I can't stand it anymore! They're blinking and beeping and flashing! Why doesn't somebody pull the plug?'
Re: I see what you did there
Surely we deserve a share of the revenue for this article :D
Hmmm what could possibly go wrong with paying Oracle for a kernel that subverts the running kernel in order to splice in updates real-time?
