Re: Good luck on that one.
Are you claiming that football is a public good?

Are you claiming that football is a public good?
No, they couldn't possibly do that. It's a violation of their Yooman Rights, you see.
Your fedora is at a particularly jaunty angle at the moment.
I've been assured, repeatedly, by readers of The Register, that not only are gamers all mature responsible adults, but that there is no religion-bashing going on here.
So obviously there must be some kind of misunderstanding.
'we're not condemning the guy'
I am. He made an appalling error of judgement in a professional setting and should be fired.
...and if I ever feel the need to edit 4K video, I'll be sure to look for a shiny underpowered toy to do that on.
Actually, no, I'll choose a computer instead.
No, I recently swapped from Mac to PC and have no reason to regret my decision. Saved a lot of money as well.
No, I built a PC with more performance than that thing for half the price Apple are wanting.
I don't care about resolution - who's going to use 5K-whatever-it-is anyway?
Irrelevant. I don't care about the resolution.
And there's no point claiming it's a usable display if you can't connect any other source to it.
I see from the specs that it has less performance for the PC I built 6 months ago for half the money.
Well done Apple.
Welcome to 2012.
I get on in my workplace just fine, thanks. Maybe because I'm not the kind of loser who rides a bike.
Another way to detect no-mark unemployable losers.
Arrive on one of these and your P45 will be ready before you've come to a halt.
'good quality sound output'
The only method I have found for getting *that* from an iDevice is to use an external DAC to bypass the headphone output that Apple may have spent as much 1p on.
Anti-religious bigotry must pay well.
But I guess there are jobs I can't take on, either.
It's obviously QA's fault for reporting all those defects.
Our code is perfect; there can't be anything wrong with it!
...and then being re-hired as consultants for twice the money.
Can't come too soon.
Apart from the creepy multiple phone calls (every day) begging me to stay with them, I'm a big fan of their habit of randomly dropping carrier on me, taking 5 minutes to load web pages, and responding to all attempts to send email from my smartphone with an SMTP error messgae in French.
A colleague has recommended GiffGaff - any good?
It's still Apple's fault.
E. E. 'Doc' Smith, inventor of space opera, used this stuff for stealth warfare... in 1951.
Pretty much. And it's distracting, too.
A single LED - to indicate its power status - should be quite sufficient.
Suitably grumpy, nice work. :)
Still sticking with the traditional boxes, now I'm wealthy enough to upgrade, I'm old enough not to notice the difference.
Will 29.43kN make you feel happier?
Some very interesting info, thank you for that. Especially the account of how it deals with cold weather; I had been curious.
There's certainly an argument that for the journeys the vast majority of car owners do - under 10 miles in mostly urban areas - that this vehicle is an excellent choice. I find it a bit odd that so many commenters will suddenly, with no warning, need to undertake a drive of over 300 miles. Perhaps those bringing up this objection are either projecting their particular use case onto everyone ('I need to do this, therefore so does everyone'), or maybe it's a case of FUD as you allude to.
It's good to hear some positive feedback to counter the relentless negativity.
Would I buy one? When you pry my Scott CR1 Pro from my cold dead hands, then maybe I'll consider it. :)
What topic? Explain what you mean.
Third party insurance for riding a bike comes for free with household insurance policies.
I have additional third party cover from my British Cycling membership.
'Go back and re-read...'
No, we're done here.
Good to see that you're proud of your hypocrisy. Well done.
At least you get to feel superior, and that's all that's important.
I see that as usual you couldn't resist getting in a dig at religious people. Well done.
Supply details of just ONE alleged incident, with full names and addresses of all persons involved, registration details of all vehicles involved, exact date&time, and the coordinates, and I'll believe you.
Until then I'm calling BS.
Yeah they do, they occupy space.
Whereas the fee I am paying for not having Sky is £0.00.
This is all Apple's fault.
I notice you're letting Apple off the hook for this one.
It was at lunchtime. Who goes to a meeting at luchtime?
Only Apple products fail.
'...the blunder is far worse than Apple's gotofail...'
No it isn't.
A picture of a spider?
The JPL coding standards forbid it, with good reason.
That would void the warranty.
Apple are the real villains here.
How awful, she's hurt your feelings.
If any smart-alec wants to suggest that Beijing use Boris' solution to particulate pollution -http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-15762967 - they can feel free.
They claim it to be 'clinically proven'.
So do the Puritan Brigade find this more, or less, objectionable than the other e-cigs on the market?
Not that they have anything constructive to say, just the usual scare stories.
An e-cig helped me quit nearly 5 years ago and I have not used nicotine since, nor have I been tempted to.
But you're not interested in success stories, are you?
In other words you have nothing, apart from a rather bizarre and meaningless insult.
