WIN a 6TB Western Digital Black hard drive with El Reg


I was just checking out my pr0n collection on the new 3D screen when this snake appeared. Mom says you'll have to suck it out.


Lost in translation

Too late, the German intern realised the error of asking for a "screen wiper"

16:10 screens rule

I agree too on 16:10. 16:9 is only any use for watching the output of the film studios. And even then it doesn't matter if you've got a 16:10 screen showing a black bar at top and bottom whilst you watch a film does it? Because the reverse - using a movie-resolution 16:9 screen for actual computing just doesn't work - I can't display my extra vertical lines on parts of the screen that don't exist...

As an aside, my old 1920x1200 resolution laptop needs replacing, and I can't find any for sale at all. There's a few 1920x1080 (16:9) around, but I really need the missing 10% vertical resolution. Can anyone tell me of any? Apart from whatever Mac it is that currently has such a screen as I'm just not a mactard.

Can the iPad save newspapers?


errrm , how many times subscribers are actually sky subscribers who got the times thing bundled in and don't really want it and may not even use it?
