Re: If I am ever canvassed by Labour...
The Labour Party. Now, that *is* a name from the past.
You'd have thought the tories would start making decades-long plans seeing as the irritating 4 year election term has been abolished. Mind you, the realisation they are not accountable any more got off to a great start today with the appointment of the Noble "Lord" Hogg, for his lifelong dedicated service to Moat cleaners.

@werdsmith You're generalizing it wrong.
Re: You're photographing it wrong
@Mike Bell You're getting out of bed in the morning wrong.
You're photographing it wrong
More from the gift that just keeps on giving.
Every cloud has a silver lining
"Or it could be because having gone from 100,000 people to fewer than 8,000 staff, Moto doesn’t have any programmers left."
A Corbyn of flaws.
Its heart is in the right place, but ultimately its policies cannot work in the real world and will destroy the very thing it strives to uphold.
A schadenfreude of flaws
Coz Android security is a pile of Schmidt.
There we have it. With Microsoft, its always "The *next* this, the *next* that" which will totally blow the market away.
Always has been, and always will be.
Cue the inevitable "You're watching it wrong."
Googles "Don't be evil" motto
Who did they have in mind when they coined this, again?
Tut tut tut
So much finger waving, so many "told you so" s.
There's a lot of firsts happening in that year of the heat death
Its the year of Linux on the desktop.
Microsoft writes a browser which shows webpages correctly.
XP market share falls below 10%.
A MP submits an honest expenses claim.
Apple comes up with an idea of its own.
Labour win their first election since 2005.
Liverpool win the Premiership title.
"If you don't need Apps get a Lumia"
Love it! Some refreshing honesty for a change. If only microsoft had used that in their ads...
Microsoft might not care about stopping kids getting into trouble online but it sure as hell wants to know all about it anyway.
Re: No Boats for larry!
Thumbs up from me!
Oracles business practices fucking stink, matched only by the incompetence of HMG procurement. Why they are finally waking up to this is anyones guess, but the faster they are shown the door the better.
How long before all new cars have gps/satnav as standard?
The only realistic way these all seeing road aware systems can know what other cars are doing is if every one of them constantly phones home. That mean the manufacturers have to build one in at the factory - and agree across the board on a standard. Owning the mapping software is the first step.
There's a full Reg piece in that alone, I'm sure.
Bears n Woods
In the first edition of Bill Gates 1994 book,"The Road Ahead", the word "internet" appeared 4 times.
Being so late to mobile they can't catch up is nothing new at all - just look at search, cloud, ads etc
Was this a job for special branch?
With that eulogy I can now retire.
Linked in are celebrating
At last someone actually took one of their emails seriously.
Ooops, have to go, I have one just in from them now asking me if I'd like to connect to the schoolfriend of a colleague who once met the brother of a bloke I was on a train withs uncle who he met him at a grass growing conference 20 years ago.
Theres a much more earth like planet right next door
It's about the same age.
It's about the same size.
It orbits the same star and about the same distance.
It's called Venus. Let's go take a stroll round it shall we? According to the same readings we have of this Earth 2.0, it's much more likely to be hospitable.
Another platform burnt to a crisp.
They should keep IE, but simplify it for its most common use
Get rid of the address bar and everything else except one big button in the middle - "Download Chrome".
Re: many "hackers" are ratbags, but.....
Yeah, shoot the messenger - what's the worst that could happen?
Re: Open up BBC TV to the world
And whatever you do, don't look too closely at how much is spent putting up all those downtrodden managers from darn sarf forced to slum it oop north.
Insiders know full well the turf war since the move just gets fiercer every year, so god knows what it costs in the 3 since that article.
Re: Don't want updates or want them at convenient times?
And folk criticised java for pausing randomly during garbage collection.
Re: So on the 30th...
This Uncle Bob will be swerving whatever ms excrete with all his might.
But ... he just said that unlike last week, this week they are in mobile. Who knows what next week will bring, and if they'll be rehiring all the mobile staff they just sacked. Maybe Flop or even Blamer will be back on the scene. Maybe Sinofsky will need to be rehired to demo Windows 10, and once again show how it runs Internet Explorer, with a majestic sweep of his arm.
What *is* the situation with the NHS?
I was in a very large UK hospital recently and walking around could not fail to see every single PC was running XP. It was glaringly obvious this was policy - not one deviation from the dozens I saw, even right down to them all running the default background wallpaper.
There seems to be some special arrangement with ms, but lemme guess who's nose its being paid through.
Doublespeak art its finest.
Hey OEM's, don't look behind the curtain at how we've just abandoned mobile and sacked everyone here who used to work on it, instead pump millions into it yourself - it's a safe bet, you can trust us - when have we ever let you down before?
Re: An ElReg classic
That's just shocking.
