Not wishing to detract from the obvious disparity between male and female pay at the BBC... Auntie Beeb also seems to have a preference for all of her favorite Nieces and Nephews to be within a VERY limited palette range.
Except when they're Australian. (I still have this little gem in my record box)
Because they're widely considered as an accurate news source.
Is it the Johnny Foreigner sounding name of the news outlet that you object to? I understand that a lot of people have issues with anything that sounds remotely Middle Eastern and involves brown people. Let me assure that such fears are completely unfounded.
You must be thinking of the Daily Mail or Sun.
You're assuming that 5 Eyes will actually know where to look. They appear to have found diddly squat so far and I'm pretty damn sure that the FaceBook group "Death to the Western Infidels" isn't going to contain their master-plan.
You didn't back up your device before applying a major update?
Oh, boo hoo hoo.
You must be so lost without all the data you acquired since you last found the motivation to get up off your arse and sync it with your box with lights.
Probably because it takes up a whole three minutes of your valuable time and could really have been done while you were watching cat videos instead of just leaping in there.
What a personal disaster.
Ray. The permanently sarcastic man.
I have a cheap as chips Mi-Band 2.
Best £20 ever spent on wearable tech.
If someone posts a video of themselves being racially abused to highlight the attack and someone else reports the video for showing racial violence... who wins?
"Hey, fridge, am i running out of milk"?
"Yes, and I've downgraded you to skimmed because the digital scales told me you're getting a little porky"
"What's that Tim? We're live???"
...and two mirror appear.

Russia and Germany don't trust VM not to add NSA back door access.
Foxconn is said to be.... forcing an additional 100,000 university students into workcamps.
There, fixed it for ya!
Meanwhile Charlie Farr is saying they have to monitor everyone's communications as they can't tell us apart.
Sounds a little racist to me.
PLEASE PUT DOWN YOUR WEAPON!
YOU HAVE TWENTY SECONDS TO COMPLY!!!
I still own bit-torrent.net if they're interested.
Um... got a carrier update on Sunday.
Can I scrub off 1 & 2 from the list?
My iPhone carrier now says giffgaff and I can access my voicemail from the voicemail button.
Thanks Devs? (are they reading El Reg???)
"For five days, one thousand Apple engineers and five thousand developers will gather together. And life will be different as a result."
Good! I have an iPhone want list. Y'know, the REALLY simple stuff that most Smartphones can do by default without the need for Jailbreaking.
1 - Ability to change the voicemail number.
2 - Carrier customization or at least update to include GiffGaff and other services that operate on the back of another network.
3 - Saving animated GIFs to the photo roll - With the animation intact!!!
4 - Change the default browser from Safari to ANYTHING!
5 - Flash. Get over yourselves and bloody include it.
Now GET BACK TO WORK!!!
The UK government would insist on an 'opt-in default'...and probably not tell us about it.
You can bet an obscenely large bonus that they paid through the nose for that pearler of a rebranding. Keep the receipts, lads!!! I think you might be in line to get that repaired. Unless of course you didn't buy the extended warranty.
Acktually iz dolan.
That obviously depends if JJ's overuse of lensflare manages to burn his stalky little retinas out.
Dunno why so many peeps dismiss Disney. They've done a stirling job on the Marvel franchise since they took over and the news that characters from the new animated series Star Wars: Rebels will be tying in with Episode VII just made me nerdgasm as much as Season 6 of Clone Wars.
Yeah, it's for kids and I'm a big old 45 year old one.
Please sue Apple for not letting us change the default browser on an iPhone.
I think that ones a bit more open and shut.
Especially with the old Microsoft IE ruling as precedence.
I'll be expecting my 10% for this one in BitCoin to the usual address.
Cake for everyone!!!
Apples latest product: THE iSOMETHING
A flat square (or square-like) device with rounded corners and no definable purpose.
The iSomething may or may not contain something and will almost definitely get you sued if you try to create a similar box with something in it that infringes on our 'intellectual' property.
There are already people queuing up outside Apple stored to get one.
I work for an incredibly large insurance company... all PC and Laptops run Windows XP (despite a Windows Vista license on every desktop) and they all have IE6 running as the defaulty Browser.
Can't see us being around for much longer.
They should have become bankers instead.
Then they would not only be able to fleece billions, but get a nice hefty bonus for doing it too.
So, a left handed UK passenger visiting France who has GPS switched off to conserve roaming costs is pretty much FUBARED as far as this goes.
...was a couple of Jedi beating the crap out of each other.
BRILLIANT!!! You could have rows upon rows of iDevices in the iDead Mausoleum, constantly looping slideshows of their dead owner with a holographic Steve Jobs as your guide.
I am Prince Nabunzi Kamadaria, sovereign of the Made-Up Zafini Province and I need your help to transfer some BitCoins out of my country due to a civil uprising...

I've always considered the *real* terrorists to be America itself.
You get my like for the irony.
I! Miss! The! Exclamation! Marks! On! Yahoo! Posts!
Dear Sir, You win the internet.
Not to North Koren, I hope.
This stuff is state of the art to them!!!
Malware on Chinese made device?
Themes in iOS7??? You crazy man!!!
You can't even change the voicemail number on their overpriced junk, and you want themes???
Send that man into the corner with a jailbreak.
If the NSA want to know my high score on Candy Crush Saga... let them!
I have them beaten and they know it!!!
You seemed to be a little confused here, Matt.
WinPho8 does not switch much the same as the new app switching in iOS7.
The new app switching in iOS7 works in much the same as WinPho8.
There, fixed it for you.
Gentlemen, you had my curiosity. But now you have my attention
It doubles up as a handy Wine Cooler...
