So, the new font, then

Glad someone made a post about this... font strains the eyes, especially in the comments sections. Change it back...

Battery, battery, battery.

I'll consider getting a smartwatch as soon as someone develops one with a battery life similar to any old digital watch.

Revealed: The AMAZING technology behind Apple's $1299 Retina MacBooks – a lot of glue

Serviceable computers are better

For all their sins, I think Dell have always been a fantastic company for serviceability. Bought an XPS 12 'Ultrabook' recently and I'm very impressed that the whole laptop including display module can be broken down easily and all replacement parts can be sourced. It was the same with my old M1210 from 2006 which is why I've stuck with them so far. They even make the service manuals easily obtained from their support website which is very uncommon with manufacturers now unfortunately!

Guess what too? Normal Torx screws that most people have a driver for these days. They are better for the application than the Philips head which is quite prone to stripping.

El Reg Redesign - leave your comment here.

Aebleskiver

Rare of me to complement Google but they do actually have it right and far better than El Reg with site design on YouTube and others, so perhaps you might want to take a leaf out of their book.

It's nice how YouTube's style sheet adapts depending on screen size and resolution and takes full advantage of whatever you're using, tablet, hi-res desktop or otherwise...

Not enjoying the new layout :-( Much harder on the eyes for navigation and trying to identify what I want to look at. Seems to all blend into one mass now.

The first space mining freighter needs to be named the Nostromo... because that worked out so well for another crew :)

You'll hate Google's experimental Chrome UI, but so will phishers

Aebleskiver

I've been getting disillusioned with the direction of both Chrome and Firefox in recent times... I switched to SeaMonkey recently and I'm really enjoying. No intention to dumb down, idiotize or ruin the interface...

Just what could be inside Dropbox's new 'Home For Life'?

Aebleskiver

"Home For As Long As We Don't Go Bankrupt"

"Home For As Long As We Decide To Keep The Product Until We Get Rid Of It On A Whim"

And so is the cloud...

SCRUBBED: Technical oopsies halt SpaceX's bid for the Money Ring

I prefer SpaceX's 'take no chances' attitude as compared to NASA's "just try launching it anyway" approach...

Apple's first iPhone now COSTS MORE than golden mobe 5S

Aebleskiver

Re: £9,999 mobile phone battery

You're right about the price changes. I sell a lot of eBay stuff myself, and upping the price like this is a common technique to save money (due to relisting fees) and also save time, as you said.

A £30,000, 295bhp 4G MODEM?!? Must be the Audi S3 Quattro, then

Aebleskiver

I'm in need of cheap petrol

Amused by some of the captions for the Audi menu options... "Refuel for the best price". Like you'd care if you owned an S3?

Pointless?

Seems like it would be better just to get some kind of holder, like a car holder, to hold your regular smartphone at your bedside... which probably has a much better screen than this anyway.
