Re: The only innovative use of NFC I've heard of so far.
Nice idea but it's hardly remote.

Nice idea but it's hardly remote.
Exactly the sort of thing I go to the pub to avoid.
It'll be texts from dog next. http://textfromdog.tumblr.com/
Please Samsung, get Dom Joly to advertise this in the UK.
Sounds nice but it's no bacon butty - too much frippery.
Bacon, butter, bread, sauce. Resolve to never drink again.
I'd stick with good bacon every time. Danish bacon's just nasty - full of water.
For me it's good British bacon if flush, porridge if not.
Meanwhile Air France have adopted the Dutch approach to food. Truly a marriage made in hell.
I know we Reg readers are a cyncial bunch but did anyone think their valuation was justified? Anyone at all?
I share your doubts that less famous folks would get so quick a response from plod but that doesn't mean they're wrong to arrest this clown. He's made a death threat and that's against the law.
Hopefully this will scare the shite out of the wee scrote, Tom Daley will decline to press charges and that'll be an end to the matter but arrest is the correct response - IMO of course.
Wow. No director's ever milked a Hobbit (on anything like this scale) before.
What a fantastic moment for British justice and common sense. Good job we haven't looked like fools or anything.
Well done, all!
So how is working for Google, xperroni?
Yes. To be classed as an Ultrabook only requires an Intel Core processor.
Hopefully not uploading a video log to YouTube
The sad thing is the case categorically doesn't warrant a custodial sentence but McKinnon will receive a one if extradited.
It's time this cruel farce ended.
I! Rather! Like! The! Yahoo! Ones!
Exactly. CentOS is the absolute dogs danglies and all for the excellent price of free!
We run CentOS for dev, staging and production servers and it's rock solid. I'm unashamedly a CentOS fanboi.

Perhaps you're not the target market for the Pi. The extra stuff you describe is the sort of gubbins a lot of IT pros and tinkerers have lying around.
You buy (or already own) the SD card. The OS is free.
Given that my PS3 lives under the telly, a toploader would be a bugger. Or it would if I used the PS3 for anything other than iPlayer.
You may also remember the Tories attacking it when Labour tried to bring it in. And during the election.
They're all fearful, greedy, self-serving shitebags and none of them deserve our support.
Because Windows drives
people me to drink?
While we're scraping the barrel of old technology, why not Telegraph Pi?
I suspect a new bubble. In SPAAAACE!*

I'm no astroboffin but my understanding is our orbit is very slowly moving away from the Sun. We'd need a lot of space gold to alter that trend.
As a mere admirer of explosions - certainly no boffin - thermite gets a huge thumbs up from me*

It's not that unusual. My next-door neighbours are also [my number] + 1 and [my number] - 1
The Online Privacy Foundation go datamining. Satire is dead.
Thank you. Now I understand.

Is that the same as scotch breath? I sometimes develop that.
It was Glenrothes, yes.
I worked for an Apricot reseller in the 90s. Nice PCs, some very nice servers. Couldn't compete with Dell, though. Shame.
"Go on then give me some links as I've been after such a device for a while"
It'd be trivial to get it to talk to the 4sp API as well. And you just know some bastard is going to do it!
If you want to save lives I'm sure there are better ways to spend the money (i.e. something that saves 2 lives per €5m is twice as good and so on).
Bug my arse
I agree with your mum. It's enough.
Who on earth would want link their Twitter account linked in to LinkedIn? I'd be just as likely to put a link to my Reg comments on my CV.
Shame for marketroids, not an issue for real people.
I'd be inclined to piss on the floor if the bog started playing adverts. Then I'd find another pub.
Without wanting to turn this into another "Americans and guns" borefest, it could easily lead to shot urinals.
Won't somebody think of the khazis?
Yup. It's just a really bad idea. I can't see anyone forking out a laptop's worth of money for nothing even close to the functionality. Even a smartphone's more use offline.
Not the same.
CRT = yer basic bogpaper
LCD = fancy bogpaper with Aloe Vera
If you want to pay all that extra money for a moistened arsehole, that's up to you. I'm fine with it as long as my finger doesn't got through.
I'll stick with my CRT til it breaks, thanks. Yeah take that Panasonic!

It's only Thursday but have a (pretend) beer on me!
After their Lucky Charms more like.
Don't fuck with leprechauns!
... such as pointing out the ugly "from" in my last comment.
+1 But don't let this stop you from producing more.
