Re: What's the proper way to put out a lithium fire?
Awesome :) El Reg really is an education sometimes. Also, see the comment way way above this one about water inhibiting the thermal runaway.
What's the proper way to put out a lithium fire?

Re: 'Church of Sarcasm'
Oh yeah! That sounds like a really good idea!

It's bad enough that he's been jailed for a boneheaded facebook comment, and now this?
Is this the American penal system at work? Is he being assaulted by the inmates or the wardens?
Re: Sex Slave Robots FTW!
How about if I were to build a robot that could consent to and even enjoy being a sex slave? Would that satisfy you?
Some have been jailed and others have lost their homes and businesses
If it can be shown that those bugs are directly responsible for sending innocent people to jail, I think the Post Office are going to have a very very big legal bill on their hands.
Can't they have a word with the Israelis?
Their Iron Dome seems to work pretty well.
Re: I wonder what the criminals were thinking.
They were probably thinking, "Woah, this is easy... Nintendo have obviously not heard of Intrusion detection."
Re: vertical landing
Vertical landing would be a boon if you were thinking of landing your rocket on a planet or moon with little or no atmosphere.

Ich bin eine Shitstorm!

Google isn't going to take data protection seriously until the Information Commissioner's Office does.

An artist trying to be sciencey :D
There are many actual artists that use scientific principles in the creation of their work.
Katie Patterson would do well to study their attempts.
We are recommending you to change your password
I'm not sure which is worse. Screwing up a service that customers have paid for, or the terrible grammar.
All the kings horses and all the kings men
Couldn't put that rocket back together again.
Re: It's the users who are the problem.
Yeah, but you try telling them that!
Re: Lazy users,Lazy politicians
Random capitals, rabid foaming at the mouth zeal for open source unix systems....
It's hauntingly familiar.
Sounds like some kind of two way telescreen.
I wonder what's in Rupert Murdochs email account?
Aw come on! How can that not be in the public interest? You know he's got to be up to something!
Re: Uncertainty about quantum computing?
I guess we'll find out if it really is a quantum processor after the wave function collapses.
Facebook is providing a meeting place for paedophiles

You could learn a lot from Prince of Persia.
Re: Who doesn't suck in contact lists these days?
Just because everyone else is doing it doesn't make it right.
David Gauke assured MPs that HMRC was doing a good job
Forgive me if I wont take the word of a man that thinks paying tradesmen cash in hand for work is morally wrong while he thought it was perfectly fine to fiddle his expenses.
Re: Pretty simple
Speak for yourself. I'm a riot.
I'm surprised at Sapna Cheryan.
Women enter plenty of professions with a less glamorous image. To suggest that women are this shallow is just as bad as the "lets paint it pink" marketing of tech firms that want to appeal to women.
The UK survived the blitz, the IRA, and the entire cold war without losing our liberties and freedom.
What's so special about the latest batch of people trying to destroy us that we need to hand over all our cash to GCHQ, MI5 and MI6?
Re: It needs a room sized laser?
May I suggest: a whale?
Re: Unlicenced nuclear accelerator?
Nothing turns me off a product more than adverts that try and look like regular content.

Imagine if your date was wearing one!
Gadget Geek Heaven!
Maybe she'll find it in her heart to use that money to compensate her victims.
Well... I can't see the future, but I can hope.
If you listen very very carefully...
You can hear James Randi dancing a jig :D
But this ruling doesn't go far enough. There should be an announcement every 15 seconds that it's all bullshit.
The Biggest Hacking Threat In The UK
Is probably the UK Home Office itself.
Coming soon to an American town near you
A Key Signing Party!
Train Journeys are too expensive anyway.
The last trip I took by train cost more that it would to drive to my destination!
Apple sounds like it's issuing an ultimatum
I can see this ending badly for them. Nobody likes being held to ransom like that.
All this controversy about Google Glass
And cats have been secretly filming us for ages.
Don't the courts and the police have better things to do?
If the guy wants to grow plants, I say let him.
Who's he hurting?
Very cunning Telstra
What a great way to get five free days of work out of potential candidates!
