Re: HAL ... evil AI creation.
I totally agree. HAL wasn't evil, just misguided.
It couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch of theives
It'll do no good for Albert Ransom, but I do take a little bit of delight in seeing someone get their comeuppance.
MS DOS Didn't get good until version 3.2
But you still needed a separate boot disk if you wanted to play video games. Unless you were some kind of batch file wizard.
Terrorism laws being used for something other than combating terrorism?
Margaret Hodge is a little late to the party isn't she? Or is passing bad laws only something she takes an interest in when it directly embarrasses her?
Let me fire up a 56K modem, connect to Compuserve, and download a movie that will crap out at 76%.
That takes me back!
So what do I do when my sofa eats my coffee table?
Re: Like El Reg readers have never had that experience before.

Re: "5 blade jobbie."
Try a single blade Bic. I find that the multi-blade razors tend to accumulate hair between the blades, reducing efficiency. Which probably explains why they work better when you rub it backwards down your leg.
We’d have been disappointed to be number two.
Ronald Hall owes me a new keyboard.
I like Google Glass as much as the next bloke. It's a great way of accessing small amounts of data in an unobtrusive manner.
BUT! If Larry Page came into my bathroom and started filming me in the shower and tweeting the video all over facebook, I'd say "OI! PAGE! NO!" Being the CEO of a multi-million dollar company does not give you the right to come into my bathroom and start filming me in the shower!
(apologies to Harry Enfield.)
Can't EA get anything right?
I've still not forgiven them for ruining Dungeon Keeper.
Stormi-Lee Whitford parents were lucky...
That monkey could have racked up 1,000's of dollars worth of purchases on Candy Crush!
Re: infinite loop of cash
Re: ...preferably out of a canon.
...Into the Sun.
What happened to Fair Use?
How else am I supposed to use South Park clips to educate people?
Re: That's my code knackered then.....
I too was wondering what GitHub's patrons have against tasty pork dishes in gravy.
Because the sudden appearance of a 437ft CyberDemon is likely to cause mass panic.
Re: Babes, Beaches, Beer, and BBQ
Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.
Re: I can't even think of a word to do justice to its size!
With a name like Dr Black
I'm surprised that she's not retreated to her evil lair inside a hollowed out volcano.

Why? Is my privacy worth less?
If my algorithm finds a solid gold asteroid...
and it gets mined, do I get a share of the profits?
Infocom games are cool again? Awesome!
Say what you like about those old games, but they knew how to put together a proper boxed copy back in those days.
It wasn't just a bunch of disks and a manual. You got that and so much more that made the game seem so real that for a few hours you'd really feel like some kind of adventurer (or an intergalactic hitchhiker).
How do they propose to mount this on the head of a shark?
Yes. I want sharks with frickin phasers!
Good for the CRTC!
It's about time they took a stand for Canadian Strange!
Re: How to load an airship with celebrities
That's a reality TV show I'd watch.
Re: Sprint have missed a trick here...
That'll teach me to read the frigging article!
Sprint have missed a trick here...
What Sprint should do is charge the NSA even more for their services, and then pass that money back to consumers in the form of cheap/free calls.
Everybody wins. Sprint make loads of money and get customers. Sprint customers get a subsidised service. The NSA get people to spy on. What's not to like?
Windows XP is one of those items that I categorise with the Model T Ford, rotary dial Bakelite phones, 56K modem handshaking noises, and radios that needed the valves to warm up before you could listen to anything.,
How soon until I can put PGP on my android phone?
Then I can encrypt the bytes out of everything!
If it's anything like the HSBC scandal
All the EBA will do is wring their hands and ask us very nicely not to launder money again.
Rupert Murdoch likes Google now?
That's as good a reason as any to boycott it.
Because we all need more of this:

Re: Daily Mail headlines write themselves
Not quite there yet "Bitcoin users are heavily armed East European drug-peddling Muslim pedophiles! using money from Bitcoin to fund terrorism and reduce your house prices by stopping weekly bin collections!!!!!!"
Were Apple available for comment?
If you can't get an answer from an official Apple spokesperson then you ought to get that mole on the payroll.
Oh so it's ok for GCHQ to spy on peoples webcams...
But when I do it, I have to go on a sex offenders register!
Why am I finding out about this from El Reg and not from Virgin?
If Virgin Media can find the time to put an entire tree's worth of spam through my letterbox every week, then they could have found a way to tell me about this, surely?
Ah the 1990's! Such a glorious decade!
Only during the day.
Is your problem that she was filming the assault, or is it the device she was using to do it?
Re: Well would you let some pervert wearing Google Glasses
People drive past my kids school with dashboard cams all the time. What's the problem?
Finally! Apple shows some innovation!
It's just a shame that "There's not enough statues of Steve Jobs" isn't really a problem that needs a solution.
Re: Unfair Contract Terms
It doesn't invalidate the entire contract?
Turns out that the data is going to be handled by ATOS healthcare.
And that's me opting out straight away.
Why is it when I hear a bit of Microsoft Marketing...
I'm immediately inclined to believe the exact opposite.
Are you saying that the goggles, they do nothing?
Re: Dogecoin not on the list?
Wow. Such comment. Much upvote.
I've got a rock that keeps away tigers.
I carry it with me everywhere I go in the UK, and I've never seen a tiger.
If those are scam sites...
Shouldn't the UK government prosecute them? Maybe put them in jail for being naughty and taking money under false pretences?
That would send a stronger message than just removing them from Google searches.
