Instead of joining in the knee-jerk reactions, I look forward to reading the actual correspondence and evidence. Especially the part where the ICO told Vote Leave to delete the data, so they did, then the ICO fined Vote Leave for not being able to produce any evidence. As others have said, seems Kafkaesque and extreme...

First, Google touts $150 AI dev kit. Now, Nvidia's peddling a $99 Nano for GPU ML tinkerers. Do we hear $50? $50?
Damn, that Jetson Nano looks like the wish-list spec for a Pi 4.
Linux4Tegra looks like a custom-built version of Ubuntu 14.
A cluster of those would be interesting.
What today links Gmail, Google Drive, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram – apart from being run by monopolistic personal data harvesters?
Just posting an early letter to Santa from my children.
Thank you for the Raspberry Pi 3A which is very nice and lots of fun and we have learned lots and lots about Linux and Python because of them and that's a good thing for us at school and where my Daddy works.
Please can you send me and my Daddy a Raspberry Pi 4 as well? The one with USB3 and SATA would be very nice. Thank you.

Purple curtains in a brothel?
Lostwithiel isn't in the diocese of the Bishop of Bath and Wells, but maybe he goes on holiday there?

Opportunity knocks for someone to combine the two?

The judge rejected both Maugham’s ‘Protective Costs Order’ and his initial appeal, which would have limited Jolyon’s liability to just £20,000 if he lost the overall case, instead of being on the hook for Uber’s costs which could be over £1 million. The judge noted that the “named claimant has significant assets which he is not prepared, albeit for understandable reasons, to expose to the risk of an adverse costs order.”
More significantly, the judge said the fact that Jolyon had received “substantially more than 50% of the funding” from his case from the black cab trade, including one single contribution of £20,000, was very much a “relevant consideration” in the case.
The effect (had he won the case) would be (a) allow him to claim the VAT as a business expense and (b) put up the price by 20% for the general public (that's most of us)
Fancy a .dev domain? They were $12,500 a pop from Google. Now, $1,000. Soon, $17.50. And you may want one

At the risk of being heavily down-voted by El Reg moderators, I can't help wondering why the El Reg team keeps posting articles like these. While all the time every page has an icon at the top of the page for people to "Like us on Facebook".
If the Register is so aware of Facebook's sociopathic tendencies, why does it still willingly associate itself with that beast in any way?
It is cognitive dissonance? Or, perhaps, are these articles just click-bait?
I didn't get where I am today without being stuck in traffic jams outside their front gate (in a secret location near the Travelodge Newbury Chieveley M4) when the M4 or A34 is gridlocked.

ADDRESS: Denison Barracks, Hermitage, RG18 9TP
I must remember to go along to the next Hermitage Parish Council meeting and ask them to update the village website.
All bought to you courtesy of that oxymoron known as Military Intelligence.
How times have changed (not)?
I didn't get where I am today without being a junior code monkey on an MoD IT project. Working for what was a major consulting firm at the time (but now long gone). The consulting firm's sales droids were quite blatant about the sales tactics. Get the naive customer to sign a contract for the most minimal and vague specification at a give-away minimum price that undercut all potential competition.
Then every single bit of scope creep and alteration to spec was charged extra. A lot extra.
The names change, but the tactics remain the same.
Why does that website take forever to load? Clues: Three syllables, starts with a J, rhymes with crock of sh...
SQL script used to count the number of complaints.
Guaranteed to always be a small number.
declare @Today date = getdate(), @CountComplaints int;
select @CountComplaints = count(distinct P.CustomerID)
from SupportForum.dbo.Post P
where P.PostDate > @Today
and P.PostTitle like '%billing system%';
if @CountComplaints = 0
print 'We are not aware of any issues with the Billing System';
EFF's Panopticlick (as mentioned in a previous Reg article) might still be a useful check:
(Before and after installing Ublock Origin, Ghostery, DuckDuckGo browser add-in for privacy protection, etc, etc)
Sadly their Self-Defence page has disappeared.
Somehow this reminds me of Hogwarts - with Death-Eaters in charge of the school - students are only expected to have a theoretical knowledge of the Dark Arts.
Re "schools to issue a statement that confirms that students have been given the chance to design, write, test and refine programs as part of their course of study" -
"Given a chance" smells like a huge festering ambiguity ...
The outfit where the NHS England Digital boss is headed? Turns out their code is 'not technically suitable' for the £6.4m NHS App
Re: Why bother to report this?
Why would you sign yourself into slavery these days?
Presumably all the existing Oracle users call themselves consenting adults, not slaves?
Then they go and use Facebook and Twitter ...
Just wondering if there is an Ex-Oracle Users Group. For therapy and counselling...
I didn't get where I am today without starting with 80286 machines with 20MB hard disc drives, and a *one* Mb file seemed like something *huge*. If you were really lucky you go one of the special custom-built machines with (gasp) a 16MHz processor and a 1.44Mb 3.5" floppy disc drive. I'm pretty sure my bulging IT museum (in the attic) has some 8-bit coaxial Ethernet cards.
