The CRASHING ON THE MOON bit...
...they did that with the Apollo 11 Lunar Module, couldn't risk it falling back to Earth and landing in someones back garden.....my eyes are OPEN!!!!
...that it hasn't took more pictures of Donkeys....they still have them on Blackpool sands, don't they?
That is all.
SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT VACATION SPOT...
Didn't Willy Wonka do something similar...
...those limited "Golden Tickets" certainly drove up demand for his chocky bars?
Re: Why in the hell are any of us stupid enough...

...Larry Ellison could spend a bit more time on the "shop floor" and a little less time "twatting about in a boat"?

...there seems to be only one law for the security sevices: "Don't Ask, Don't Tell".
It seems to be working quite effectively.
Six degrees of Kevin Bacon.
I suppose they've got to raise the money some how, to pay for the shotgun-nosed prick?
I don't use Twitter to write crap...
...i use The Register instead!
Re: WORTH THE PRICE OF ADMISSION....
that would make for a very touching scene, one man and his Wookie.
Dr Bob's medical corner
I wonder if Wookie's suffer with Arthritis?...i mean, he's got to be about 400 in human years!
The only way he can realistically make "an appearance" in the next film is if Han had him stuffed and mounted in a corner of the Millenium Falcon....i suppose that would be a "Cameo Role"?
WORTH THE PRICE OF ADMISSION....
....to see Chewie with a Zimmer Frame.
Re: What to expect...
I'd always thought that "Extraordinary Rendition", would be something like Tom Jones singing "Saturday night" by Whigfield.
They're not DRONES but R.C.T's

You missed a bit...
"Take a severful of Hash,add salt, hold the rainbow AND LEAVE THE BACKDOOR OPEN SO GCHQ CAN POP ROUND FOR A CUP OF COFFEE.
Can totally understand Torvalds....
....this is his baby and all the sitters who have volunteered to look after it keep dropping it on its head!
KID NEEDS A NICKNAME....
....how about, NEO?
Bet the NSA has put the kid on their SHIT LIST now. The dad had better check the brakes on the kid's "Big Wheel" just to be on the safe side!
I hate myself for doing this, but instead of " well there on their fucking own now..", it should have read "well they're on their fucking own now".....really really sorry about that.
Re: Try them both on a 13" retina display..."

...This sounds similar to to the "BAT-VISION" in Arkham City....wonder if people they're watching through the walls show up as "Skeletons" as well? That would be WICKED!!
Who's writing these headlines...
Dear The Reg...
Have an upvote for that headline, or in this case, a" thumbs up" icon...Bravo!!
Goggles tentacles are fuckin everywhere.
I don't think that Apple should be insisting on the prescription of medicines or vaccines as Public Health issues are none of their concern. All they have to do, and are doing as far as i can tell, is take steps to ensure that the workforce are working in the SAFEST of conditions. Wages, Health Benefits, pensions, Hours etc, are things to be negotiated between the Employee and the Employer. There's also the possibility of "side-effects" with any form of medication and knowing Apple's luck someone would probably get ill or die from the vaccine, which would give them more grief. The problem is the Chinese. As soon as these "Western" companies backs are turned Health & Safety goes out of the fucking window. What can Apple or any other company do about the Chinese mentality where they see themselves and everyone else as a disposable resource....What they need is a Bloody Good General Strike.
Re: "Apple's iPhone Plant"
thanx 4 clring tha up fore me innit.
"Apple's iPhone Plant"
What the hell is that? A TRIFFID with app's?
Is that what you've got on yours Stevie? I bet you've got "Go Faster" stripes and a "Turbo" on yours as well haven't you?
Instead of Ammonia, why don't they just pump in some James Brown?
Re: A simple suggestion
#1: Replace copper wire with Fibre.
#2: Offset some of the cost by flogging copper at local Scrapyard.
PS: is it Fibre or Fiber?
....I've heard that it wasn't thieves, it was in fact "Kevin The Work Experience Boy" from GCHQ trying his first "Splice" into a main network....they won't be keeping him on, apparently.
IT ALL FEELS A BIT.............SCRIPTED!
Its like when we have "Inquiries" in this country. They take ages before they start. i've always thought that the reason must be is that it takes them a while to write a "Script", hand it out to all the "Players" and give them the necessary time to learn their "Part". And so long as everyone knows their "Lines" and doesn't start "improvising" the "Inquiry" is Guaranteed to give the Authorities the "White-Wash" they were hoping for. It also helps making sure that the person in charge of the inquiry is a "Senior Member" of the Judiciary who, no doubt, doesn't want to blot his copybook or his families name by being in charge of an inquiry that results in the "Downfall" of a Minister or ministers or even a Government.
What makes me chuckle is that these particular companies were "Tapped-Up" years ago and they all agreed to the "requests" (not demands) of their countries Security Services. They had every opportunity to tell their Government to "get lost" but instead colluded to keep the Planet in the dark about their activities.
Money seems to be the main reason floated about as to why they were so eager to please and certainly they have plenty of that but also they seem to be immune to any form of Corporation Tax, Globally. One can only assume that the "Bottom Line" of these companies is being impacted upon in some way because "Middle Men" aren't "Noble" or "Charitable" by nature, and their belated attempt to paint themselves as the "Victims" of this particular Drama just doesn't wash. I would have more respect for these people if they just came out and said that they are the "Cyber-Paramilitary-Wing of the "New-World Order" and that its their job to monitor every human being to make sure that "He" or "She" knows their place....under the thumb of their Masters....FOREVER.
Quick!...Patent, trade mark and copyright iBacon NOW!!!......too late.
Beware!......DARPA's trying to put you on the "GAME GRID"
