Harry Potter director takes on Doctor Who movie


Actually, they could call it "WHO?!" and make it as a musical.

(Grabs coat. Runs.)

Ten... all-in-one inkjet printers


HP Autocrop Fail

Please test scanning multi-pages - HP software is REALLY ANNOYING as you cannot turn it's damnable autocrop off, rendering it's scanner functionality pretty much useless.

Brits registering .uk domains mostly get first choice


I don't mind losing out to another web site owner, but when your domain of choice is owned by that "what you want when you want it" bastard domain squatter I really get annoyed.

Domains should be upped to £25+ to wreck those sorts of business models. They are too cheap at the moment.

Phone-hack backlash BBC in embarrassing headline gaffes

Paris Hilton

Speaking Cock

Speaking Cock?? Brings a whole new meaning to the phrase, "At the third stroke..."

Paris, because... oh, it's cocks, isn't it?

Drunken bust-up woman sprays cops with breast milk



"Some blokes would pay good money for that..."

Some people pay good money for a Cleveland Steamer, but if any one did it to me I'd be pretty hacked off, to say the least.

Completely down in the dumps, even.

You've just out-mashed the Daily Mash. Funniest piece I've read in ages!

Only one icon needed.


ISPs battle EU child pornography filter laws


re: "filtering reduces the risk of abuse by...

On the other hand, seeing how accidentally stumbling onto kiddie porn may leave cache files on your hard disk that could lead to a very long prison sentence, I'm actually rather for the blocking idea.

Mum arrested for seducing teen on Xbox Live


Tee-hee - they said 'nail her'.

"The hunt was hindered by Hicks hiding behind a false name and age, but federal authorities were eventually able to nail her."

Well if she was happy for a 13 year old to nail her, I doubt a bloke in uniform would encounter much resistance...


re: To those talking about rape →

You can only consent if you deemed to be old enough to consent. In many places, this is indeed classed as rape.

Facebook boobs over breastfeeding page... again


Under 13s?

"By way of response, Facebook issued a statement which read: "[...] to ensure Facebook remains a safe and trusted environment for everyone, including the many children (under the age of 13) who use the service."

Eh? I thought kids under 13 using Facebook were against the terms of service?

Gov gone wild: Mad new pub glasses, bread freedom introduced


Lying on a park bench?

"Australia ranks fourth in world rankings for beer consumption but scores much lower on per capita alcohol consumption, which tells you all you need to know about their beer. "

And British lager? Carling. That's all I need to say. Apart from pot,.kettle and black, of course.

Lock up your Crackberries


Who Cares About the Phone?

The company I work for does not give a toss about a cheap bit of hardware - they want to know that they can zap it should I report it lost. And they do not want the finder to know that it belonged to Mr XXX of XXXX Ltd, either, as that just helps identify the data source.

They don't want it back if lost/stolen - they just want it, and its data, to die.

Ball player gets Beaver ban after drunken naked tasering

Paris Hilton


"Naked Beaver Found With Rug" should have been the headline?

Paris because... oh, do I have to spell it out for you?

MOON SHRINKING FAST - shock NASA discovery


Good Sci FI Plot

Obviously this is caused by a future version of the Large Hadron Collider that was sited on the moon and created a runaway black hole that is eating its way through time and space. Obviously.

Translation: I just wanted the money.

Dell outsourcer lifts US woman's saucy pix from PC


Abject racism...

Abject racism by the newsreaders. Listen to the last 30 seconds of the report. Basically they are saying that this only happened because this idiot woman trusted some pesky foreigner. Coz Americans wouldn't have ripped this woman off, would they?

Google patents search that tracks your mouse moves


I suspect...

that the only people who hover their mouse over part of the page they read are the same people who have to run their finger over a book as they read, i.e. morons. Google have invented a moron tracking device.

Apple won't be pleased. Wasn't that the purpose of the iPhone?

NatWest sets lawyers on student site


Tell it like it is.

I'd take down the page and replace it with "NatWest are a bunch of c***s - avoid them like the plague. This site has no affiliation with NatWest and never will. Bastards." Then include a copy of their missive.

Wales joins supercomputer club


Initial step...

"Firstly there is the high performance computing (HPC) hardware, software, infrastructure and a distribution network."

No no. First is "bring electricity to Wales".

No porn here officer. Just a DVD with a few hamburger shots...

Obvious, really.

Times websites want £1 a day from June



"Rebekah Brooks, chief executive at News International, said: “These new sites, and the apps that will enhance the experience, reflect the identity of our titles and deliver a terrific experience for readers ... "

Yeah, a bit like she delivered a "terrific experience" to Ross Kemp's head. And was arrested for it.

Paris Hilton

You know - it's subheadings like this that make the Reg worth reading. Bravo that man!

Paris... well, it just has to be, doesn't it?

Doctor Who fans name best episode ever



No 'Girl in the Fireplace'?? No 'Seed of Doom'???

Tsk. That's all I can say. Tsk.

CRB checks can take years to complete


Easy Solution

If the CRB had to pick up the tab for the person's salary for all time over the 28 days then either the will move a lot more quickly or, even better, the whole dodgy business would come crashing down.

Tasered Oz man bursts into flames


Petrol Sniffing...

... is a huge health problem in Aboriginal communities, even to the point where BP developed a new type of petrol, Opal, to combat the problem. It has a similar effect as glue-sniffing, but has major long-term problems like brain damage.

Alcohol and non-Opal fuel is banned in most of the aboriginal communities in WA and NT.

Ryanair agrees website clarifications with OFT

Currency Exchange Scam

Don't forget the Ryanair currency exchange scam. Buy a ticket from Europe to UK and it's all quoted in Euros. Stick your (UK) credit card number in and it charges you in pounds at an appalling exchange rate. Can you turn this off? Can you f...

Google slips Reg reader £500k!!!!!


I can beat that...

Google are cheapskates. I've just been awarded £1M quid from the "Barclays Premier League Grant programme". And my name isn't even Sven Goran Ericsson!

Wisely, they inform me that I should "take time and thought in investing the funds wisely on a project that will stand the test of time."

Any suggestions?

Holy f**k, Microsoft covers up ‘undesired’ words

Boffins conclude machines still not quite people



"Dr Warwick is an enthusiast when it comes to the rise of the machine. His personal website – I, Cyborg – explains in detail how he became the world’s first Cyborg, when he agreed to have a silicon chip transponder implanted in his forearm."

Let me guess - the 'I, Tosspot' domain was already taken?

Change the switchboard number to an 0870 number (well, the RoI equivalent) and they'd be quids (well, euros) in.
