Colander-wearing Irishman denied driver's licence in Pastafarian slapdown


Re: Obviously a parody

Not forgetting chatty Salamanders. Many religions have prospered by a little suave rewriting of the rules. Constantine, King Jim and Joe Smith spring to mind, the gospel according to pasta is in the offing. Furthermore, many accepted religions allow the cloth of conviction to be displayed When and Where the devoted followers so choose. To be true to the cause of passage along the enlightened path of "al dente" the humble but blessed colander is fitting garb.

Apple's largest UK reseller Jigsaw24 is for sale


The prudent sale period is well past.

Apple have run out of "big ideas" and with the Chinese manufacturers direct assault on the smartphone (and what is left of the tablet) market already underway, it is more than a bit late for Apple retailers to bail out.

Re: Someone tell the government then

CO2 is a benign, odourless, tasteless and colourless gas that IS essential to life on earth. but by all means accept the delusion that a fraction or a percentile will wreak havoc - why not? All the other sheeple have.

Deluded Aussie geeks hail Turnbull's elevation to prime minister


Re: I was going write someting meaningful, but

What is the point? The liars have the floor, the roof and everything in between. And the great unwashed have proven their status. The prefer to be lied to along with the sheeple of the USA and UK... glad I live elsewhere these days...


Turnbull IS dedicated but...

NOT to the welfare of anyone, let alone geeks UNLESS it aligns with his sole purpose and that is wealth and power for MT.

The "little "o" " slimes up to his "new best fwend"

Microsoft now licensing Windows by the user, across multiple devices


Still showing their greed and "we once were kings" feet of clay.

Big hint you do NOT have the hearts and minds of a growing market share anymore.. And as long as you treat the customer like YOUR software serfs you will continue to slide towards oblivion

big tip it is customers you want, NOT devices so have just one price platform irrespective of what the client is using it on without any SmartArse restrictions like "screen size under.nxn" - or continue with proving your dinosaur status...

Zuckerberg bombshell: Man married to Chinese woman speaks Chinese in China


It makes it simple for ignoramuses to understand, Chinese food is basically 3-4 dishes and comes in funny paper boxes, Asian people all look the same and Chinese language is all one dialect but pronounced differently depending on whether you come from north south east or west like 'merica , SunTzu is all you need to know about Chinese stratagems,

there all done

Nokia's Trojan Horse

I think the Finnish PM needs look no further than the dire warning, "Beware Greeks bearing gifts"...



Maybe all the bendy iphones were first placed in a microwave to " charge them up"?

Whatever, fun to see the fruity firm squirm for a change instead of basking in the glow of thier adoring fanbois..

Google forges a Silver bullet for Android, aims it at Samsung's heart

This post has been deleted by a moderator


Since Android (like iOS) is built on Unix it is perfectly feasible for Samsung to make or commission their own "Samdroid" and sideline Google altogether.

Microsoft burgled, only the APPLE iPADS stolen - cops confirm


Receivers of stolen goods prefer Apple....

El Reg man: Too bad, China - I was RIGHT about hoarding rare earths

Thumb Up


I have often said to anyone who will listen OR NOT, that China is NOT a very smart "country" and I hold that opinion because, unlike many other PC commentators, I have actually been there in person on many occasions purchasing Apple Juice Concentrate amongst other stuff like negotiating to install ultra secure wireless LAN's.

Personally, I find their businessmen to be collectively quite stupid.

Simply cheap and aggressive but disorganised and dumb overall.. Hence my "Great Wall of China" the dumbest ever civil engineering project and "Sun Tzu vs. Machiavelli" = No Contest syndromes ... anyhow, I enjoyed this article on Rare Earths, it made me chuckle nah - a big , hearty belly laugh actually..

Why the Apple-Samsung verdict is good for you, your kids and tech


The question is not "did Samsung copy Apple"

The real question that Velvin made a conscious decision to overlook is this;

"Does the iPhone constitute innovation under the Patent Rules?

The answer to that is an equivocal - NO!

In short, how can you "copy" something that was already copied or is a feature that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have come up with?
