Yes - and MasterCard's. Inventing their own would have been a recipe for failure in the market

Partched

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

How the FLAC do I tell MP3s from lossless audio?

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.

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'.

iPhone 6: The final straw for Android makers eaten alive by the data parasite?

Frankee Llonnygog

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.

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.

so bitter

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.

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

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
