> But is it really so confusing? Here's a clue...
Surely the biggest clue is whether you have to pay for it or not?
You seem to argue that Murdoch is benign and has no power, but would you say the same of Berlusconi?
He's definitely got at least one thing right.
They'll be dressing up in superhero costumes next and scaling the Symantec building.
Not well argued
I usually enjoy your articles Alistair, but you made a couple of sweeping statements without backing them up with numbers.
1. Planting trees in order to print paper is more sustainable than building power stations to power our electronic devices.
Well that rather depends on the numbers doesn't it? How much paper do we need? How many devices are we going to have, and how much power do we need to power them? And we'll still need power to do the printing and create the paper.
2. Books are greener (eg, easier to recycle) than electronic devices.
Again, that rather depends on how many we need through our lifetimes. If we could get people to buy and use just one e-reader throughout their lifetime then a heavily used e-reader may well be greener than thousands of books, however you measure greenness.
Re: How out of date are their lists ?
There's a simple answer to all of this, your wife is having an affair. Or two.
What's the point...
if you have to listen to the answer phone messages anyway?
Yes, I'm confused as to why the Reg hasn't covered that story.
Reminds me of an issue I had with Flickr. I'd accidentally leaked one of my apps' secrets. No problem I thought, I'll just regenerate it (as you can with Facebook for example). But Flickr has no way of regenerating app secrets. As far as I could see, the only secure thing to do was to disable that app and create a new one. Luckily I didn't have any users at that point.
I can't believe you didn't do any IVONA puns :(
That's unusually interesting and insightful comment for the reg :)
Re: Correlation != causation
Yeah, they're most likely depressed because they're fat and are forced into drinking drinks that taste crap by society.

Seriously, RTFA people.
Re: Don't you just know...
erm, perhaps RTFA before commenting?

> Save as JPEG? Oh no, you have to EXPORT as JPEG! Change pen size? Oh, let's not make that easy).
I'm glad I'm not the only one, I was starting to think it was just me. Plus it doesn't remember where you exported to last time, so I'm *always* changing from Documents to Pictures.

You missed "held accountable for his actions".
Where's the Score the Article widget gone?
The only time I want to use it to mark an article positively and I find it's disappeared.
My assumption is that generally people only used to to mark articles down.
"Chip makers can no longer look to Microsoft to solve the problem by regularly updating its operating system with technology that demands the performance only the latest processors can deliver."
Not only that, but Microsoft have also done chip makers the disservice of making their operating systems good enough that people don't *need* to upgrade to the latest versions, and for a lot of people upgrading the operating system is synonymous with upgrading the hardware.
I complained a couple of times and didn't really get very far. The third time I thought I'd ask for compensation, just for the hell of it. The very same day I got a call from a guy saying that they would be happy to give me a 50% discount until the network was due to be upgraded in Jan.
When GiffGaff falls over and nobody's there to hear it, is it even news any more?
You mean to say...
THEY ARE HUMAN?!?!?!!!???
Yes, looks like she, or someone, accidentally clicked the "tweet this joke" link here:
Just to confirm, the photographer has to buy approximately £3000 worth of kit, but doesn't pay anything to Google. The photographer can then charge what they like (approximately £200) to provide the service to a shop... and has to pay nothing back to Google?
Well make your mind up
Diamonds Are Forever... bears the least resemblance to the original novel
The Spy Who Loved Me, with Moonraker, owes the least to the novel from which it takes its name.
Re: I've sent in a correction...
This objectification of men must stop! You wouldn't be commenting on a woman's appearance like this, would you?! His appearance has absolutely nothing to do with the story!
