iPad Air not very hot: Apple fanbois SHUN London fondleslab launch

Neil Anderson

"I remember old laptops, which used to break every year, so you needed to buy a new one...."

Should have bought a Mac. I'm still using my 15-inch PowerBook purchased in 2001.

Neil Anderson
Facepalm

Shipped doesn't equal sold

RIM said they shipped 200,000 PlayBooks. They didn't reveal numbers of actual sell through.

Note to Apple: Be more like Microsoft

Neil Anderson

Little wonder

It wasn't so very long ago that anybody wanted to help Apple. Apple's suppliers and software makers turfed the company aside and left them along the roadside for dead. Can't really blame Apple for only wanting to rely on itself.

Wasn't BoxOffice removed because it was crashing iPhones? Regardless, it's now back at the Apps Store renamed as Now Playing.

'Mac worm' hacker in death threat farce

Neil Anderson

Latin plurals

You are correct, Craig. The plural of virus is viruses. It is not viri, or even worse, virii. True, the word comes directly from Latin, but not all Latin words ending in "us" have "i" as their plural. Viri is the Latin word for 'men' — plural of vir, man; root of the English "virile". There is no written attestation of a Latin plural for virus.

Cheers, Neil Anderson http://www.cyclelogicpress.com

El Reg lobs iPhone at Genius Bar

Lucky for me

I have hands the size of a 12-year-old so it'll be easy to type on that teensy iPhone keyboard. And I fit inside sexy little Italian sports cars pretty good too. :)

Why the iPhone is a success

Skype on the iPhone

Tom Keating of TMC Labs has come up with a complicated remote-control work-around to achieve something every computer geek wished for: the ability to run Skype on an iPhone.

Sounds like business apps are on their way too.

Weather's great for flying

"I find it genuinely, cosmically, depressing that El Reg doesn't get the iPhone. A vulture chasing its own tail is so pitiful to watch."

Maybe they should fly over to America and scoop one up.

I helped an 80-year-old set up her first-ever computer — an iMac. The first time she held the mouse she waved it around and pointed it at the screen like a TV remote.
