Gartner halves tech splash forecasts, blames the US dollar

Grenou

Re: Ahh Gartner

My neighbour works for Gartner, he sure is weird, must be influenced by his company.. or is it the other way around..

'Clearance sale' shows Apple's iPad is over. It's done

Grenou

Re: Education PC seller says Apple is no good in that market

Uh?? Who on earth is Edd China.

I thought this was about Apple.

I for one LOVE my iPad(s).

I wish Apple continued success, their products are excellent.

Too much negativity here, but I am not surprised.

Jeremy Hunt pockets £14m through sale of course search website

Grenou

The Register is a great place to be informed.

A shame that so many who contribute their' comments' would be better off being sent to Mars on a one-way ticket.

Grow up you lot.

Remember Corel? It's just entered .DLL hell

Grenou

Re: I confess - I use Corel

Easy, don't import .pspimages and you're fine.

I do resent the comments made here about Corel being old hat.

Heaven forbid the user would be forced to use the ghastly Photoshop, no thanks.

Re: 100 millions users?

Oh come on folks, Corel might be a tad behind the times, but the software is good.

Yes, I use their software and have done for years, especially PaintShop Pro which (for the price) can, in the right hands, stand up to the mighty Photoshop (way too expensive).

But nowadays everyone wants one-click and you have a masterpiece, so the right hands are likely few.

Give Corel a break and stop sniping :-(

Shock! Nork-grating flick The Interview WILL be in cinemas – Sony

Grenou

Why did Sony make this film in the first place,

Is this what 'freedom of artistic expression' is all about?

If it was a film about killing off The Queen, would it still be seen as 'acceptable'?

When the never ending diet of how-to-kill anything and everything so beloved of Hollywood and dished up as 'entertainment', is it any wonder people are so violent :-(

Curious to know if the UK's Tory-led government is a MEGA SPY? Answer: Yes

Grenou

Re: I say good

Er zijn stomme mensen en meer stomme mensen, niets van aan trekken :-)

For the non-linguists: there are dumb people and more dumb people, don't let it get to you.

They're very welcome to know what I get up to, I have nothing to hide.

I don't kill people and only shout at stupid motorists.As far as I know that isn't a threat to anyone :-)

How to strip pesky copyright watermarks from photos ... says a FACEBOOK photo bod

Grenou

Re: Probably only suitable for a thumbnail anyway

I can remove copyright marks, but don't.

I pay for my software, but never anything Adobe, which is wayyyy over-priced and over-hyped.
