Re: Best Version of Windows

Yes. And it's been true every time. If that progress continues, they will one day attain 'good' and 'secure'

Never let logic get in the way of a good rant

Yes, yes, Steve Jobs. Look what I'VE done for you lately – Tim Cook

Re: That should probably be "führer"

And when we hear the word, our first thought is of a cheery troop of cub scouts...

Fruit is jock-ular US homophobic slang, as I'm sure I don't need to point out.

I think the Reg writers know exactly what they are doing with this needlessly provocative epithet.

Godwin's law is an indicator that a debate has reached rock-bottom. If the Reg's articles are already there, what chance for enlightened debate in the comments?

Re: That should probably be "führer"

I don't mind how the Reg spells slang that can be construed as 'gay Nazi'. I just wish they'd stop it referring to Tim Cook as that.

Apple SILENCES Bose, YANKS headphones from stores

Frankee Llonnygog
Silver badge

Re: That is some serious stupid right there

Prior to this, Bose sponsored some kind of American sporty thing with a condition that the players must not be seen on or off the field wearing Beats. Does that also count as "retaliatory and anytime-competitive" or can we only apply those adjectives to Apple?

Bose and Beats - both great ways to keep audiologists in Porsches.
