Well if you want the definitive Affleck dross, I suggest adding Armageddon to the list, watching him try to emote at Liv Tyler whilst that bloody awful song is playing is sufficient to give anyone nausea...

Glass was in its infancy, and you took those very first steps and taught us how to walk. Well, we still have some work to do, but now we’re ready to put on our big kid shoes and learn how to run.
By that, they seem to mean they'll be lacing up their running shoes and legging it as fast as possible away from this particular dead duck.
El Reg, you still seem to be completely misrepresenting the content of this story. What Google are doing is to close down the beta program, and start the process of moving it to main-stream development. This is not in any way the same as dropping Google Glass, which your coverage seems to suggest.
I still think the "Desktop is dead" idea is premature, and possibly will never be true, although the form factor may change. Desktops/Laptops are not just for business edge-cases, they still have real benefits as a form factor for home use, in my experience.
My kids have both smartphones and tablets, but if they want to do their homework, they choose to use either a desktop or laptop - primarily for the full keyboard, and the ability to print stuff.
I use a desktop, partially because I'm from the TRS80 generation, partially because for work I need to manage servers from home, but also because to do household accounts, play games like Warcraft, edit my photos, and various other needs, a mobile device is just not the right tool for the job.
I surely can't be the only person who has a household like this?
In what possible way could sharing the data on aircraft passengers have helped thwart the Charlie Hebdo killings? The perpetrators were (as I understand it) Parisian residents, and already known to the Police.
In the same way, the killing of Lee Rigby was done by UK residents known to the police, and the Canadian attacks were the same, carried out in each case by Canadian nationals.
In none of the above cases could data about air travel have had any bearing on the identification or capture of the attackers.
Curious, there doesn't seem to be an A record in place at the moment for www:

I'm not sure why he's making such a big thing about the API help documentation, It's fairly standard practice to make that info publicly available. Maybe he doesn't have much experience of working with APIs?
That doesn't in any way excuse the lack of OAuth, or the inclusion of the customerID in the URL though, they should be roasted for that...
Drew, please can you re-introduce some navigation at the bottom of the page to get back to the homepage. You used to be able to click on the "Register" banner in the footer but you've taken that away.
If you've read down to the bottom of a long page of comments, it's a pain to have to scroll back up to the top to get back to the home page.
Re: Grow some balls!
And if the criminals are backed by a rogue state and know where you and your family live and have threatened to blow up your house while you sleep? That's the level of the threat being posed right now: it's getting personal.
This just shows the irrational level of fear to which America has sunk.
Come ON! There is no likelihood of this threat being acted upon, the resources necessary to carry out the threat make it impossible, even for "a rogue state".
Re: SEO: Emperor's clothes
I wish I could upvote this more times.
We provide the website and hosting for a client who are the only provider of a niche service. They have the very top organic result in Google, Bing and other search engines, for any search term which describes the service they provide, and they also have a sponsored link in Google.
And yet, each year, they spend thousands on external SEO consultants, who keep coming up with different strategies and slight tweaks to page content and layout, most of which get reverted by the next SEO consultant.
Re: Linux v Windows updates
I agree, Microsoft Updates are a pain in the ass, and various other orifices of your choice. And, as the story is about one that completely screws Exchange clients, it's yet another triumph for Microsoft...
However, posting sudo apt-get update and should be running Linux is not really helpful.
I administer both Linux and Microsoft servers, and much prefer the Linux ones, I spend a lot less time having to manage them, but for a business use, there is still no realistic open source alternative to Microsoft AD and Exchange which can be deployed without an awful lot of customising and fiddling about - which are just not viable for an SME. Especially since the majority of users want Windows desktops so they can run Project, Visio, and all the other loveliness.
Auto-failover is all very well, but if you can't trust it (and I've had various vendor's examples fail on me) then you might as well not bother, and just have a manual process instead.
Frankly even with active/active stuff, I tend to make sure I'm alerted just to check it did actually swap properly...
Yes I know, I'm paranoid...
“Our remit does not include dealing with complaints from organisations which have had search results to their websites removed from a search engine,” an Irish DPA spokeswoman told El Reg last month.
Ah good, so no legal redress at all then, if my website is suddenly removed from the search rankings.
Nice to see there's a proper "due process" in place...
