I heard you can get up to five quid for an Opera exploit on the black market.

This was the one piece of software I missed when I switched! Now I can finally ditch crummy iPhoto!

Sad looking website

What a sad looking website it is as well :o(

You would have thought they would source a little bit more content to launch with!!

Windows 7 early promise: Passes the Vista test

No way back

I switched to a Macbook from an HP laptop a few months back. I did so not because I was immensely unhappy with Vista but because I wanted to upgrade to a more powerful machine but wanted more fo a guarantee of stability. Since then an older colleague of mine has done the same and despite a bit of a learning curve neither of us have looked back. OS X IS a more stable environment. And I'm saying that with experience of Vista on a number of different machines. My point is though that although I'm intrigued by this release I would be very wary about switching back. I don't get the sense that this will represent any increase in my productivity. Still it's very early days and I would have to try it out. Problem is will MS's pricing strategy make it very costly for me to legitimately try out the full feature set. My suspicion is probably yes. Looking fwd to Apple's meaner, leaner Snow Leopard...

OMFG, what have you done?

@Steve Sherlock

Um so why don't you make your browser window a little less wide - does it need to be full screen. Plus a shorter line length is easier to read. No need to fill the screen just cos there's space there

And seriously Register - bring back the other Paris icon. This one is lame!

Since I pay my ISP by your logic I am paying to read your articles. Well I do hope you are enjoying sleeping on your cash stuffed mattress courtesy of us hard working readers.

Incidentally I pay a little thing called Line Rental so I guess I pay to receive calls already.

I think this is really good. It's a bit of fun - get over yourselves you moaning minnies.

Need a new set of b*llocks? Try Argos

Euan Johnstone

4 letters eh?

Obviously they have a lot of Shit then...... A poor substitute for Shite I know but they're definately well stocked.

I feel very out of the loop as I was completely unaware how Argos' search worked.

Glasgow Kiss

I say she would think twice about pulling this stunt at Glasgow Airport. She knows she'd be on the receiving end of the awfiest punch in the pus courtesy of one of the baggage handlers. Even if she was on fire. Silly silly girl.
