Re. World Series - Snopes isn't always reliable, but this seems credible: http://www.snopes.com/business/names/worldseries.asp
"Negative evidence is easily uncovered by reading accounts of the first few World Series in the major newspapers of the era. The first several contests between the two league champions were reported under a variety of titles — “championship series,” “world championship series,” “world’s series” — before eventually becoming standardized in name as the “World Series.” If the name had derived from the New York World‘s sponsorship, it would have been known as nothing but the “World Series” from the very beginning (and as far back as 1884)."
Did the university contest this case, or is the law just more expensive these days?
I'm sure you're right.
So how likely is it that some/all the other trivial passwords are from (less cunning) bots?
Crazy Operations Guy is correct, for five or six-year-old iMacs at least. On replacing the HDD we had all the fans going to full-speed when they didn't find the sensor in the disk. That said google quickly found a free utility to restore fan operation so hardly a show-stopper
The updated Facebook "app" on my Z30 simply goes to m.facebook.com.
Perhaps I'm missing something?
I used to include a PGP block in my email signature, but many of my correspondents replied saying that they'd deleted the email because it looked as if it had a virus attached.
I was a Burroughs/Unisys man, but surely that printout is from a chain/train printer not a dot-matrix?
> the thing you do have to trust in both systems however is the value of the currency.
Yeah, and how likely is it that one crook would ever be able to undermine the value of a "traditional" currency... oh, wait.
We're all here hoping that someone from the "inside" will post the truth about what's gone on. The story's just a marker for the comments to follow.
Anyway, I'd rather read "human stories" here than the Mail. I think that the Reg does a pretty good job of filtering them for me.
How much memory do you need for posting on Facebook and Twitter?
That seems to be the exclusive use of Airs in Clerkenwell...
I would have thought that its presence is due to every smartphone that I've ever encountered having an oversized weather applet on the home screen. How many people never get around for removing it?

And of course Blackberry. We seem to be getting updates the moment that they're released, along with high-quality betas that are simple to apply/roll back. These seem to be coming thick and fast, and bringing real improvements (in my opinion).
Of course I'd love to have things like inssider available, but it's quite depressing that the lack of games and timewasters might seal the fate of the second/third ranking phones.
Recent phone history: Nokia N8 (great but SIM slot broke), E61 (keyboard bugs drove me mad), Galaxy S3 (too many hangs/reboots during important calls) and now Z10.
BB10 made no impression when I started using it, but now going back to anything else makes the back/home/app screen paradigm seem very old indeed.
Wife's Nokia 1020 is promising, but OS hasn't had the constant stream of (useful) updates that we've had on BB10.
Installing a beta is as easy as downloading the .exe (if you're a windows user). Then, when the release version overtakes your beta, it'll just ask you if you want to upgrade to it... eat that Android hackers. Finally, as far as I can tell, it's unbrickable, perhaps a legacy of supporting non-technical corporates for so long?
Totally agree with the author's comment about getting the bloody cursor to the beginning of the line though, but a single left swipe will erase a whole word. I use that for now.
After reading this article I just had to go and find a clip of the RX202 in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1y515zlrqx0
It might be trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, but what a way to do it!
I used to play this while working night shift as an underutilised mainframe engineer at the Midland Bank computer centre in Brent, N. London.
Wasn't good for much else after an hour of this... but it did keep me awake.
I'd be interested to know if they've fixed KB33694, or when they plan to:
"When an incoming phone call, message, or a general notification is received on the BlackBerry 10 smartphone, no sound is played, the LED does not flash, and no vibration occurs despite having these options enabled under Settings > Notifications."*
I was quite enjoying my time with the Z10, but it not actually functioning as a phone put an end to that - I sent it back. I wonder how many others have done the same?
*I believe that this is a bluetooth related issue, but even so...
I know what you mean... but more and more I've found myself putting up with the N8 for its great camera and hdmi output. Opera on a nice big screen is also nice.
But the foibles of any Nokia smartphone pale into insignificance when compare to the steaming turd that is Ovi Suite...
...and only 5 comments?
I've read reports elsewhere of this being so dim as to be useless unless in a fully dark room.
...enabling Opera Link hangs the browser every minute or so. Just as it did in the previous version. No real sign of help from Opera techs.
I'd love to love Opera, but they make it so difficult.
I was disappointed to find that there were no proper drivers for Windows, so my old Jawbone couldn't be used for PC VoIP.
I wonder if this is still the case?
A pile of bloated garbage that can't even sync a phone reliably - great.
It seems that I'll have to use Ovi Suite if I upgrade to the N8 from my E72, and that's a no-go for a start.
Ovi Suite just doesn't work.
My particular favourite feature is that it will silently connect to the Internet via my phone's bluetooth connection, even when I'm connected by wire or Wifi.
That and the fact that automatic syncing is pretty much impossible.
I've just cancelled my N8 order.
(unfortunately) no one uses Opera.
New range-topping smartphone announced and barely a murmer from Reg readers? Surely that says as much about where Nokia are now as any other metric.
...Sinclair is famous for originality.
He probably wouldn't stoop to pinching an uncredited line from Mrs Merton (while interviewing Debbie McGee).
I think that you're right there. I'm not at all sure that the criminal/technical mastermind behind this would have just lost the plot and connected from a traceable location. Sounds more like a patsy who's trying desperately patch things up.
I can't help wondering whether the US would have been so happy to co-operate with a foreign country to put away a US citizen though.
Ye gods, we're all doomed.
Amok or amuk? I think that you'll find that's a mute point!
Is he seriously commenting on other people's literacy?
Cretanism, usuage, predominently... sigh.
