A single reason why anyone would want to wear an Apple Watch
To annoy El Reg readers?
Huge vote of thanks!
Is the rumour true?
Jim Dalrymple says, no.
Looking forward to this week's Macalope
Assuming he deigns to notice Jasper
Re: so bitter
You mistake create a new feature set for creating a new market. The first is about selling something - the second is about getting people to buy it.
Share prices always drop after Apple events. Analysts don't think like customers.
Lots of comments hating on Apple for once again opening up a market of IT as desirable consumer goods, thereby expending the IT jobs market for the sort of people who read the Reg.
Thanks Apple - your customers help pay my mortgage

SQL Injection is limited to SQL
Re: Name change by deed poll to include...
Go right ahead - you might actually have done some damage when the system ran on Oracle
Re: Serious people don't want a watch
There's nothing says 'wanker' quite so well as a bling watch. Unless it's a bling fountain pen.
Here's a little tip to sales people: when you shoot your cuffs to show off your watch, and slap your Mont Blanc down on the table, you're sending a message that your software is overpriced
Cupertino, Mayo, Bono?
Google Glass is the new Bluetooth headset - every pair should come with a short sleeve polyester shirt and a polyester tie
Re: Rather than get all defensive and tribal
If we didn't, the forums would be pretty sparse
Re: That's the trouble u c?
Exactly. See also roads, police, etc, etc.
Oh yeah, and that thing called the internet
Re: That's the trouble u c?
Also naff all to do with Civil Service. It's political marketing from ministers. If I were a civil servant wanting to do central planning, I'd be rolling out a national grid of fat comms pipes - but that fails as political marketing in 2 ways: it would cost real money; it would be useful beyond the current party's time in office
Re: LOL, hipster names
Speaking as an Apple owner, I have yet to undergo the consonantectomy
Why not make the house smart?
Then the vacuum cleaner can just be a dumb, remote-controlled device?
I don't understand Microsoft's obsession ...
... with niche technologies. I expect it's to do with 'tax efficiencies"
Re: Vote UKIP!
I cant reconcile these two statements by the author
The CJEU ruling acknowledged that authors have “a legitimate interest in ensuring that the work protected by copyright is not associated with such a message.”
What the court seemed concerned about in the current case was the image of people represented in the parody – not the rights of the author.
Re: Windows Phone and Blackberry owners feel unjustifiably smug
Nobody wants to steal my Windows phone! Ditto my grey Clarks vinyl shoes, my North Face backpack stuffed with Cobol manuals, my bifocal glasses with one cracked lens, and my dandruff-flecked knock-off Barbour.
It's the new normcore
Re: Prepare for the Government to be sued...
To out it another way, this is a table of which phones best hold their resale value - so sales of the nickable phones will probably rocket
Maybe you could have ceiling transducers emitting a fixed ultrasonic frequency and a central unit beaming audio modulated ultrasonics at the fixed transducers. The resulting beat frequencies would appear to originate from the ceiling transducers, which could be powered from the lighting fixtures
Re: How about weapons designed for 3D printing?
A one-use barrel might be safe enough - though I guess if it was, Gilette would be in the weapons business
How about weapons designed for 3D printing?
Perhaps a new take on the old pepperbox style revolvers, where the cylinder/barrel is easily replaceable
To be fair, they are also targeting people willing to spend real money
Great reviews - thanks!
Listening to Lazar Berman as I type.
Spotted the Puertolas book yesterday in Waterstones and added it to my To Read list (the Murakami was already on the list, obviously). So many good books to read - life is not all crap!
And run what?
Market share, market share. What shall we do?
Apple will just have to make do with taking all the profits
Apple is doomed if it doesn't follow the advice of the analysts! Phablet, massive iPad, TV set ... now! Cmon Apple - you're almost on the ropes after not releasing a netbook!
Or, perhaps the analysts are full of crap ...
It's not hard to start a bank now
Licenses are much more easily acquitted, and banking engines are, if not exactly commoditised, no longer proprietary secret sauce. The most expensive things you need are Fraud, Regulatory, Compliance and Risk teams - a potential outsourcing market opportunity for someone!

Pasta with a choice of topos
As I always say
Build a better mousetrap and the world will use it as a cheese grater
Dull sounding patents?
What's the correlation between how dull a patent sounds (to the uninitiated) and how far-reaching it's real impact? That might be a good subject for a patent ...
Governments won't be happy until we're all fitted with a kill chip at birth
I think that's all I need to say here
You don't see many cyclists riding along while updating their Facebook page and yelling at the kids in the back
Re: Already done.
Yes, but the new show will actually acknowledge ripping off Dick (if you'll pardon the expression)
Someone is planning yet another assault on the late Philip K Dick. Take them down - now!
Re: Re:fanboys. We should strangle them all and improve the species.
Oooh, get you Queen Loana
Slightly better than Cloudstore
It has a working search engine. However, they need to stop suppliers clicking every single category for their products, not matter how unrelated. In other words, it will need some curation
The sad thing for Microsoft is ...
It's not as though there's any exclusive tech involved. When they finally get it right, someone else will copy it, only cheaper.
Still, at least they'll manage to sell some copies of Windows 8 that way
Political correctness gone mad! That's Mrs Paint to you
What's wrong with circular connectors? Old-style GPO phone plugs, anyone?
Re: Fear of competent people by senior management
That can't be right - my senior management love me ...
And that means, when it's broken, it's working
Re: Shipped vs "in users hands"
Breen Whitman fabricates 103% of the world's fabricated stats - fact.
Reporter reports on rumours and predictions while complaining about hype? Yep, irony bypass fully functional
Re: Just record a playthrough of COD...
Why not let hard core gamers rent out a small screen at a multiplex to play their favourite game on a really big screen and sound system to an audience of friends?
