Nexus One resuscitated as 'Pure Google Nexus S'

@dartacus

Oops

Apologies to all involved: this isn't the first time, and no doubt it won't be the last, that I've mis-gendered an American based on their name. ;-)

This is the point where you tell me he's a Brit, probably.

The tech media does seem to hate the N1

I've seen the N1 described as 'ageing', 'ill-fated', 'underwhelming' and all sorts of other nasty adjectives all over the tech media, not just in the Reg. Tech journalists in general seem to have it in for the N1, not just Cade Metz, so it's a bit unfair to get at her for just echoing what the sector at large seems to want us to think.

I love my N1. I love getting updates before anyone else. I love the fact that a middleman can't tell me what I can or can't do with it. It's got its funny little ways, yes, but by and large it's awesome and yes, Google are flogging loads of them to developers, so it's not as if there isn't any demand for an unf**ked with Android phone.

Apple as a religion: How the iPhone became divine

@dartacus

I don't know about implicit religion...

...but this is implicit proof that in some cases, higher education cuts are not only necessary but downright beneficial. I knew that education in Texas was all about promoting creationism over rationality but this is taking the fig leaf.

iPod implicated in US attack sub prang

@dartacus

For such sub-standard procedures...

...it's no surprise that the Captain got the Das Boot.

Sorry.

How a Tory gov will be the most tech-savvy in history

@dartacus

I also hope that we'll hear viewpoints from other parties

I also hope that we'll hear viewpoints from other parties too (although you'll have to find a BNP candidate who isn't so terrified of the magic bleeping box on the desk that he can flail at a keyboard for a minute or two). There are a number of Labour MPs who know one end of a mouse from the other, at least.

NASA flying car engineer shoots down Reg coverage

Alternate headline

Huffin' Puffin Boffin's unleases Frothin' Stuffin' over Nothin' should've been the headline for this 'un.
