      Optional Title is Optional

      Yes, in the modern El Reg era.

      I spose it's to stop the tipsters flooding the tipster wires when this is posted on other sites, but still a bit tedious, and will only increase as time goes on.

    I like my Apple stuff but this deluge of rumour stories before a product's (rumoured) release doesn't half get tedious!

    New design needed

    What they really need to do is to update the basic design on the iPad, mine is looking so dated these days, I mean look at the little screen and great big surround, at least in black it doesn't look quite as shabby as the white ones, but they're starting to look like an old fashioned telly. Surely they should be aiming to take the screen to within a millimeter or so of the edges. The damn surrounding is just wasted space.
