BBC Telly Tax heavies got pat on the head from snoopers' overseers

Ex-BBC reporter makes it into IT journalism

" ... a myth which other grown-ups implausibly continue to play along with."

A split infinitive as well as ending a sentence with a preposition. Yet again, an example of modern-day multimedia journalism descending to new depths of grammatical ineptitude.

I expect we shall see future reports from El Reg scribes to be peppered with further indications of thirty-plus years of declining standards in teaching English such as the new-age glottal stop - "like".

To the wolves that are still out there, beyond the flickering light of the dwindling Ecuadorian camp-fire, I say this: Be patient ... your opportunity will come soon.

Microsoft officially hangs up on old Skype phones, users fuming

Re. Skype-phone support withdrawal by Microsoft, this is simply typical corporate American strategy based upon arrogance and vindictive spitefulness: "Because we didn't think of it/invent it, let's buy out this third-party product originally developed by independent developers, asset-strip the code then embark on a programme of strategic 'upgrades' that in reality are simply designed to hog-tie our global customer base into an endless life-cycle of hardware upgrades driven by OS upgrades that in turn become out-dated by the increasing demands of hardware".

This exemplifies why the rest of the planet is starting to dislike everything the United States of America; self-centred greed with neither thought nor care for the consequences on others of its actions.

'I urge everyone to fight back' – woman wins $10k from Microsoft over Windows 10 misery

Win10 forceware

" Windows 10 update wrecked the computer she used to run her **business** "

" This update caused the Windows 7 **Home Premium** PC to crash "

I'm surprised MS didn't contest the case on the basis that the End-User was in breach of the software license conditions.
