That's a pi of a different colour.

The future is now! Or will be around shortly.
Where'd I leave all my spare SD cards?
Only another fifty or hundred trillion years left? Honestly, what's the point? I think I'll stay in bed today.
"The first ten million years were the worst. And the second ten million: they were the worst, too. The third ten million I didn't enjoy at all. After that, I went into a bit of a decline."
Monthly caps top out at five gigabytes.
"Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LiveJournal are all in the nation's top 25".
I guess it may be time I knock the dust off my LiveJournal. I've never had a YouTube, Twatter, or Instagram account and I deactivated the FaceBook over a year ago.
What's Russian for, "Will you marry me for citizenship?"
I was the recipient of strange looks every time I asked if it was the first of April, but I knew there were hijinks afoot!
I was waiting for a characteristically Reg punchline until nearly half way through. The entire article has a first of April feel that I still cannot shake.
Obviously the joke went over my head.
"With this latest move, Google+ will now be put in a position to sink and swim once and for all. Without other services feeding users into its ranks, Google+ will have to establish itself as a social network in its own right."
It is time for Google+ to move into the niche it was created to fill. The social media platform for people whom post photos of what their cats are eating for dinner.
Which one of you left this tuna in my coat?
"Using the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), our team has now successfully removed the all posts related to this incident as well as all Personally Identifiable Information (PII) about our users published online," ALN said in a statement.
Because that's exactly how the internet works.
Any one with children knows that you don't negotiate on the promises of good behavior. Even if they managed to cooperate for a full year previous I'd find myself leery of making any form of agreement with them.
But we can't forget the Golden Rule.
"Representatives of each of these companies have invented some of the most revolutionary communications products ever created"
I didn't know horrible customer service could be labeled as a product.
I guess that is the joke.
Bless his little heart.
Anyone of the mind to start an Indiegogo to get the poor bloke a haircut? Any left over dosh goes to the FSF of course.

No bridge building here, please.
"Ice fairs like in the 1600s could return to the Thames - probably year round." - DougS
Do you want to get wolves? Because that's how we get wolves.
More money and less privacy, where can I sign up?
"(And a series of tubes...)" - malle-herbert
Your idea has merit. We just need an infrastructure of interconnected tubes.
Mr Hood has left the Attorney General's office and accepted a new position in D.C. as an external consultant/lobbyist for the M.P.A.A.
Tune in at 5, 7, and 10 for other facts that won't surprise you.
Artist's rendition or it didn't happen.
"Ultimately, one day, a printer may even be able to print another printer."
Have the boffins learned nothing!?
Can I finally expect an update to my e815?
Still the best phone I've ever owned.
"And for those wondering what the actual IXV space-plane looks like, I found this"
Yeah? Where's the rest of it?
Bit early in the week to be pedantic, but have a pint on me.
And the children of course. The moment young Master Bruce starts drawing bats in his "dark doodles" I think I may call it quits on the series. As it is I worry about how early they're trying to cram everything in instead of carefully drawing things out and giving fans clues along the way. Why give a subtle nod and a wink when a nod and a shout will do, right?
As for children being poor pickpockets, perhaps you should reread Oliver Twist. A young crim with cat-like reflexes shouldn't have to break a sweat performing her craft.
“adequate performance gets a generous severance package.”
I'll take one of those, please.
He's an idiot.
How do you say, "awesome fucking moonbase" in Russian?
"Implementing the guidelines of the Basic Principles of Russia's space policy till the year 2030 and for a longer perspective, we have begun design works of a new manned spaceship".
It'll be nearly sixty years since we first stepped foot there before we get habitation? Sadly if there had be indigenous people there we'd probably would have done it decades ago. That's humanity for you.
In space no one can hear you print.
Perhaps just a horrible tagline for a movie about office supply salesmen... in space. Perhaps my next profitable business venture.
Who will be there for you when you're running out of toner... and breathable atmosphere?
Where's that ironman technology that Elon demonstrated (No, not the suit) a few months back? That's something I'd like to see more of.
Do you think it runs on Win8?
"why, for god's sake, do I need to connect to the cloud?" - picturethis
In the paragraph near the bottom of the article it states, "WD’s My Cloud mobile app “connects to a My Passport Wireless drive". While I have never used it myself it sounds like it could be in your bedroom (or living room or pocket as the headline posits). The entire MyCloud feature is trying to capitalize on the popular buzzword of the day, Cloud.
Otherwise, I agree with you. I hate the way everyone is throwing around " The Cloud".
"* Here in the UK, people with the password "password" should no doubt change the "s" to a pound sign, which looks like this: pa££word."
Thanks, El Reg. Now I'll have to change my password, again
Mine is the one with the "encryption" in the pocket.

"Microsoft will make R&D cuts (or "ramp down our engineering work") in Finnish city Oulu, Beijing and San Diego."
Because that's how you succeed in a market.
Avoid rebranding themselves as Sith.
You know to avoid any confusion with hokey religions. I know I left a good blaster in one of these pockets.
"Aereo sells a service that allows subscribers to watch television programmes, many of which are copyrighted, virtually as they are being broadcast."
I don't think they understand the meaning of broadcast. If I have an antenna and a small digital video capture device for private viewing, that's okay. I put it over at my mate's place because it gets better reception, that's okay. I pay a company to put it in a warehouse, that's not okay?
When 'they' send out the signal, that is broadcast it, and someone happens to receive it and store it for later viewing they should have no say over when or on what equipment is used. Aereo was not rebroadcasting any copyrighted material, they're delivering it to a single subscriber. One antenna, one DVR, one viewer.
Am I mistaken in that thinking? The court seems either ignorant of technology or unduly influenced by big * (media/pharma/business).
It's only Monday and I'm ready for a pint.
"Sterile neutrinos are a hypothetical type of neutrino that is predicted to interact with normal matter only via gravity."
That's some nice gravity you have there... Be a real shame if something were to happen to it.
I knew Mark Twain and you sir are no Mark Twain.
Good luck to Mr Tao in all future endeavors wherever they may take him.
"It's not "magic"."
The resolution of the images isn't high enough to spot their summer homes, but Mithrandir, Dumbledore, and David Blaine are a bit disappointed to hear you say that.
My coat is the Grey one.
I'm just flabbergasted that it was MTv News that reported this.
Kurt Loder, where are you now?
"As a result, I’ve directed FCC staff to write to the underperforming companies to ask why this happened and what they will do to solve this.”
Spoken like a true dingo.
No one ever got fired for buying IBM.
"So you would prefer paedos don't get caught?" - Matt Bryant
Where the bloody hell did you read that? My fear would be that in their zeal to catch predators like this and other criminals the police would cut administrative corners that could result in a miscarriage of justice. Luckily these judges, as others have stated, showed common sense and upheld the verdict against this man while saying the police need to request a warrant. Which seems like a small inconvenience if it means that the case doesn't get thrown out on a technicality.
My original comment was only referring to when Mr Dechert started with “we will continue to crack down on cyberbullies and online criminals who work against and make our children and all Canadians unsafe." Which I hope we can all agree with. Then went just a little bit further saying, "We will keep Canadians safe”.
I guess it all is a matter of context, Matt.
"We will keep Canadians safe,” he said.
Whether they want it or not. Sounds like a proper Big Brother.
"Tiamat hates trains. Don't fuck with her."
"You mean they dont actually have a viable product at the moment?"
You mean they had one at some point? Ha, but I kid.
Seriously though, where is my copy of Debian Wheezy?
Wait that's two words.
I think that number may represent peak Google.
Obvious choice for their first attempt?
Boffin: Computer. Tea, Earl Grey, hot.
Mine is the one with the gamma ray protective lining.
...but I don't see this being good for the consumer.
Where's a tinfoil hat when you need one?
"Except for those who wish to brand themselves as utter tools in public."
More colloquially referred to as "A bunch of mindless jerks who'll be the first against the wall when the revolution comes."
On the upside, now thanks to Partinen, we'll have some lovely footage of it.
"The other drawback is physical. Any spaceship carrying the shield would need a massive magnetic array to contain the plasma bubble, not to mention a power source capable of maintaining it."
It sounds suitable for my future moon base! Or other ground based operation that has a large underground power plant.
