El Reg Redesign - leave your comment here.

Thumb Down

No. Just no....

Design by the same team who did the new Guarinad site?

Same problems as they have:

- probably great for people looking at the site on a phone, but really difficult to read on a decent sized screen in a small room. I just can't get far enough away to view without doing 2x zoom out, then it has acres of empty white space either side.

- huge picture that consumes acres of real estate. If I am looking for pictures I go to a photo site.

Nice red rollovers though. Very 1990's. Sorry. Did I say nice?

Accused Glasshole driver says specs weren't even turned on for traffic stop

So lets get this straight - her defence is "I wanted to look like a self obsessed dickhead even though I wasn't using them?"

Microsoft warns of post-April zero day hack bonanza on Windows XP

Wizardofaus

"Anyway, dear XP users: get Windows 7."

Good. You buy the hardware to replace the hardware I have that is still working, I'll load Win7 on it.

Assange™ names a Senatorial stand-in

FAIL

Re: If he were a senator though

No. He would be a politician, not a diplomat.

God (or whatever deity/non deity you do or don't believe in) save us if it became impossible to prosecute politicians.

Although ignoring the twat would be a better option.

Google Glass eye-cam to turn us all into right little winkers

Re: RE: Question for luddites.

I've thought of another wheeze!

A hotbed of Glass wearers in London will be Soho. How much fun will it be to wander up to your friendly bobby on the beat and mention that the bloke over there was in the toilet wearing his camera?

These things could be more fun than I first though...

I have a question for those who think people who have a problem with google glass are just plain unreasonable luddites:

If you're wearing your glass and I stand a metre in in front of you, raise my SLR camera and take your photo, then post it to the flickr with the tag "glassholes" that'll be ok then?

Assange's fate to be revealed at high noon

Wizardofaus

Re: Getting him out

Equadorian soil? He is in London, not Equador, and as far as I am aware the only foreign soil in the UK is about 12 square metres of the USA at Runnymeade.

Good to see the self procaliamed "champion of free speach" taking shelter from a dictator who allows no free speech and who is controlled by oil companies. US based oil companies.

Maybe Assange isn't quite as clever as he would have people believe...

ICO could smack Google Street View with fine after all

Re: "Individuals can reclaim their privacy on the internet at any time"

What you talkin' 'bout boy?

My house isn't on streetview. I requested it be removed, just as anyone can. Here's a hint. IF your house is on Streetview and you don't like it, all you have to do is click the "report a problem" link at the bottom of the streetview image, and follow the instructions.

It's that simple - no conspiracy theories needed, just a little common sense.
