Saudi Arabia to flog man 1,000 times for insulting religion on Facebook

Facepalm

And here endeth the circle-jerk

Keep on rocking those neckbeards guys, you're really winning over the believers.

Everybody here is missing the point...

But I didn't really expect anything better from the perpetually offended secularist brigade.

Sony tells hacked gamer to pay for crooks' abuse of PlayStation account

Re: Who gives a fuck?!?!

Not bad, you got a few bites.

Try being a bit more subtle though, that way you will get a more interesting argument.

$10,000 Ethernet cable promises BONKERS MP3 audio experience

Re: Nice story...

I never visit AudioQuest's website, my Ethernet cable is not of sufficient quality.

Nice story...

Except that no one has actually made any such claim. Better luck with the audiophile-bashing next time.

I know that you'll (probably) get something right eventually, even if it's just by chance.

MYSTERY RADIO SIGNAL picked up from BEYOND our GALAXY

unwarranted triumphalism

So they've just resorted to falsifying data now?

Sad, but somewhat predictable. No wonder there is no longer any interest in the wasteful and pointless space programme.

Anonymous vows to avenge Charlie Hebdo massacre by blitzing jihadist sites

unwarranted triumphalism

This is going well...

Just the usual mud-slinging I see. No real attempt at any substantive debate.

Exactly what I would expect from a bunch of leftie secularist bigots though.

I don't see how this could be true

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.

Pixel mania: Apple 27-inch iMac with 5K Retina display

unwarranted triumphalism

Re: Att unwarranted triumphalism

...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.

Re: Att unwarranted triumphalism

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?

Re: Really?

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.

'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.

EE network whacked by 'PDP authentication failure' blunder

unwarranted triumphalism

Coming to the end of my contract with EE...

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?

Say goodbye to the noughties: Yesterday’s hi-fi biz is BUSTED, bro

Pretty much. And it's distracting, too.

A single LED - to indicate its power status - should be quite sufficient.

We got behind the wheel of a Tesla S electric car. We didn't hate it

unwarranted triumphalism
Thumb Up

Re: Wow. FUD sprayers are *still* at the electric car?

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. :)

Mobe-orists, beware: Stroking while driving could land you a £4k fine

Doesn't happen

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.
