Re: It's not a Gerald Ratner moment
Well done, only the tenth commenter to point that out.
The fact that some people are male and some female is an "oppressive human rule"?

> " it wouldnt have made it passed peer review anyway. lol"
It would have got further than your English, however.
Re: Lame! Yahoo! Headlines!
They've been doing it for at least a decade. Nope, I haven't yet been amused by it even once.
Re: oh! NO!!!
Can you actually quantify "ruined"? Flickr is largely identical to how it was prior to the deal.
^that's a nice TNETENNBA
Re: Hedge funds and Long Term
Wouldn't that be what's known as insider trading?
Re: In it for the kill
Whilst I agree with your general thrust, if you're talking about Warren Buffett, I can assure you that Berkshire Hathaway is in no way a hedge fund.
Restless Legs Syndrome is just an excuse really, really annoying people use to avoid having to change their ways.
"It's a medical condition, honest, look it's on WIkipedia".
Pull the other one (pun intended).
Re: Free from human error eh?
That's not really the same thing, is it? That's you're own stupid fault. The case cited is equivalent to your bank misplacing your money for you.
Re: Yes, it is
That could be absolutely anyone claiming to be them. Are you new to the internet by any chance?
It's kind of a public service
Company posts critical shareholder info via Facebook? Company might not be a great investment; not a buy.
Re: Duped by the clueless and the media
Taking pride in making sure that your mentally ill can be armed to the teeth is perhaps the more pressing issue.
But I think the original mistake is you or I expecting any kind of rational, fact-based approach from a Lewis Page article. Some days I think he's just trolling us.
Re: No contract?
I don't know about wherever you guys live, but certainly in the UK a verbal contract is exactly as legally binding as anything on paper. Proving it ever happened is another matter, of course.
Seemingly that applies in the Netherlands too, otherwise that boat wouldn't have been seized.
Re: If i upload something that i don't own
Banning the kids is a brilliant way to make them overbearingly interested in getting on Facebook at the first opportunity.
and no mention of his sterling work promoting the right-wing nutjobs over at UKIP?
Thanks for the downvote, Lewis.
Expect a Lewis Page article denying that the temperature rose at all any minute now.
Seconded, which is probably why you never, ever see anyone who's obviously using it. And for crying out loud, the last thing you want to do is encourage people to hang around the station tunnels and platforms even longer clogging the place up.
The clue was in the troll icon.
You're confusing innovation and implementation.
For example, I've just innovated a 13" Ultrabook with a 1600*1200 screen. It cooks me breakfast and walks the dog. I haven't implemented it yet.
See how it works?
Re: Must admit
Are you confusing recruiters with HR? Very different thing, although their "not sucking at their job" ratios tend to be similarly disappointing, sadly.
We get a vacuous little rant like this from Mr. Page every time anyone suggests, y'know, not raping the planet senseless. For me, it greatly undermines the validity of the Register as a worthwhile new outlet.
Re: "Voyager"? Interesting choice of Project Name...
The possessive "its" has no apostrophe.
Re: Is it only me........
Re: Not consequential
The sentence you quote does not claim that one "automatically means" the other. What's your point?
Re: oh dear........
Re: One word.
You clearly don't understand science, Lee.
Science progresses through conjecture and refutation. You imply that simply because some conjectures have been refuted, we should stop coming up with ideas.
Have a little read up on Karl Popper's work: it's quite important.
Re: but, but.....
Doesn't really work in the context of a UK copper.
Yay for norks.
Re: Most people seem to either love or hate Lewis
I dunno, I expected a graphic report of tits being firmly slapped against glass, and that's essentially what I got.
Give it a rest, Page.
We don't come here to read your ill-informed crap about non-IT subjects.
No, we come here to read your ill-informed crap about IT subjects, so have at it.
You are forced into nothing. You can opt out of the Workplace Pension scheme:
Do you make all of your major financial decisions based solely on your own determination to be ignorant and angry?
Well, that Diaspora thing tried exactly that a couple of years ago.
No, me neither.
