I thought that was fucking fabulous, "Mr Charisma."
It's so much better. None of your forced unnecessary page breaks.
Focus? Strategy? Rackspace shows signs of a company with no identity.
Brilliant. I really hope that's true
"The pictures were obviously shot at the very trendy Compleat Angler in Marlow by the wier."
Presumably by someone whose never used a camera before..they are awful - manage to make an extremely expensive, luxurious car look like a second hand car-boot-fair runner.
I know it feels really clever to run ad blocker but remember, the less ads you see the more content you will read that has been paid for by advertisers.
How you feeling now?
Don't fuck with The Big Dog (Westwood). He brought hiphop to the mainstream in the UK. He might talk like a prick, but I bumped into him, literally, in a Starbucks and he was charming. Respect is very due.
Very good piece.
Most successful people only have one good idea, and it usually only succeeds by accident.
I don't think you can criticize people for that.
Dare I say, it's got 99 problems, but the pitch ain't one?
Wasn't this announced last week?
I definitely didn't forget anything about Dre. But I'm jolly impressed with your Dre based knowledge.
You get used to that after a while.
I like the shift into componentized systems generally though. Seems to make the whole world an easier place and I really need that right now. Just wish I could find someone to agree with me....
And yes, I know eggs in one basket etc. But again, you get used to that after a while.
He's the best, you should sign him up at all costs.
I love a nice datacentre. And I very much like the ideas around power consumption, I've got some tough targets to hit.
Or the silent 'w' in anchor.
You don't really need to register, just add your email and it'll give you a reminder.
I'm not sure why everyone is downplaying this, it's good news - apart from the extra charge. 2FA should be standard.
Why do you keep getting stories so long after everyone else. This was on the BBC last night and in every newspaper this morning. I can see you have an office in London, so its not like you're not exposed to this.
From O2, you'd think they'd know better.
I'm loving that, feeling all nostalgic now. Good work.
With jam in.
I'm really looking forward to this. Well done.
I've got 10 of my team watching this, I hope it's good!
Comments like this are fine if you explain your creds for making them. Otherwise they're just noise.
I too will second the salesforce comments, I'm told Dynamics is lovely but haven't got the time to explore.
You should watch it before criticising, I tend to find The Registers webcasts very useful, for either me or my staff.
I hope this is the first of many.
In just 3yrs? They're clearly gunning to be some sort of supercharged service provider. But I'll be fascinated to see if they make it, where its aspirations take it and who might speculate a buy-out en route.
I don't think it's acceptable under any circumstances to thank Hale and Pace for anything.
Might I ask why Oracle declined to comment?
Typically bad headline. What is 'Virty'?
I'm pretty sure The Register used to do this years ago, top 5 comments as a headline. Then they moved them all off the page.
Nice to have them back in my view. A blast from the past, and a welcome one.
....it's good that Kaspersky actually responded to the article, in a timely fashion and, said sorry.
So many companies, and their miserable PR outfits, still think they live in the analogue world. Digital moves faster than most PRs can think, let alone respond.
I've ever read.
Jay-Z should do a guest appearance at your office to pat you on the back for that. Seriously.
I know we're all techies of some level here, give or take, but I think it does a dis-service to our skill set, knowledge and experience to suggest Google and Libre are viable alternatives.
I know there are cases where they can be great and very useful, but they are edge cases - bubbles, islands, intra-company tools. And just not viable for supporting business and commerce on any scale.
That was very interesting. It's nice to find out if and how Win 8 is being used.
I have reservations, like most people. It certainly looks and feels like a jumbled effort. But still, nice to get the word from the street - instead of the usual straight up trashing.
It hardly seems like a Win 8 'hater' story, as you incorrectly label it.
It seems to be a fairly serious opportunity to get some information on Windows 8 licensing. If it needs labeling beyond it's headline, as you seem to insist, that would be closer to a Win 8 'lover' story, surely.
Is this The Register?
Excellent work indeed. I shall continue to educate my, and other people's, staff with the wisdom you publish. I shan't rest till you 1Billion readers. Then the world may be a better place at last.
You miserable ass.
It's clearly not attempting to escalate anything, it's relaying a story. That, in case you were unaware, is what the media does for its audiences. Try some TV later, you might spot some.
Good to see Microsoft supporting the principles it touts.
Trevor, you write some nice stuff sometimes. But your comment handling is sometimes off target. This is one of those occasions. When you re-visit this page in a month or two, I feel sure you'll agree.
I think it might just be you, although I don't disagree with you as it happens. Mind, it starts getting clunky in that language when you're talking about Oracle or SAP implementations.
I'm fairly sure they were the first to deliver a desktop search that was usable too. I relied on it for years, till it sank with the rest of its efforts.
Yahoo had it's moment of glory too. You could probably argue, well maybe, that it was ahead of its time with its API's. Shame it forgot about sharing it's innovations, like Amazon do nowadays, it could have been ahead of the pack.
