Interestingly, whichever way the verdict goes, when asked, he can truthfully reply,
( punctuation may vary ... )
We do it on our website
Means we don't have to comply with PCI DSS! That's a few million very year saved.
It's a version of Visa's implementation?
Yes - and MasterCard's. Inventing their own would have been a recipe for failure in the market
When you ask a question in the head or subhead....
Aren't you supposed to answer it in the article?
Re: Not available
You know how to use the command line, and you find yourself typing the same command every day... I feel your pain. If only there were a way to automate this

It was a matter of party discipline
He should never have had that UKIP tattoo
Didn't even know this book existed. It's just shot to the top of my To Read list. For anyone who comes to Partch for the first time - and likes what they hear - see also Moondog. Another true original
Mr Diston - your page is required weekend reading for me. Many thanks
Re: Yes you can, but probaby not on a Sonos speaker
Thanks for that - first sensible comment in the entire thread. Just shows how people can get sidetracked. The author is using Sonos Play 1s - a 3.5" 'woofer' and tweeter in a tea-caddy sized plastic box.
Tip for the author: get decent speakers, then listen again.

First ever mention of Yves Klein on El Reg? I've come over all Tinguely
Can't wait for the first close up of a player's hands
The one where the Apple Watch fills the screen
Re: What happens when...
Upvoted for 'dischuffed'. Reg Eds - can I nominate this to the official lexicon please?
Parcel delivery, healthcare, etc - could be a good fit
Re: Meanwhile in London ...
Meanwhile in London ...
The Gordon's distlillery is to install a network of fine tubes through which capillary action will draw gin directly to the dispensing nozzles in London's public houses.
They have dubbed the technology, 'fibre optics'.
Re: So it would be called a "beer main"?
It's not a beer main until there's a tap in every kitchen

This is a great time for tinkerers
Every day almost, a new CPU. With the range of toolsets and cheap development boards available now, there has never been a better time to do DIY electronics.
Keep em coming chip boffins - you're doing a great job!
Re: We've all been there
Thanks for explaining my comment to me!
We've all been there
Minutely scrutinising imperfections in photos and interpreting them as physical attributes ...
Re: Beats or no Beats
Very true! Not till they come out with a coal-fired, tweed-covered model
Beats or no Beats
iTunes will still be shit for classical music
Re: Time to go medieval on them...
Good idea - I suggest you patent it
Re: Good cables are better
You keep your tackle in your Dropbox? Sounds safe enough
Re: Good cables are better
I just checked a cheap generic USB cable. It has gold plated connectors

There is definitely a case for sending Branson to the moon.
Google Plus proves more is less
Wake me up when someone releases a pic of a celeb with clothes on
Preferably those fitted by the mortician.

Well, you'll never be blessed with a Universal Credits system if you carry on like that.
I am in favour of X therefore Y cannot succeed
Fanbois, fandroids, fandoze, fanberrys - perhaps some educated person can tell me the name of this logical fallacy?
One observation - phones are consumer technology. A good barometer of what will succeed in the consumer market might be - the opposite of what El Reg readers favour. We are the sort of people who enjoy taking things to bits and 'improving' them. That's the opposite to most consumer behaviour.
If you're going to source stories from blogs, at least link back to them.
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
