Google 'GDrive' revisits tech-pundit G-spot

Thumb Down

Sorry, but I'll pass

Security, privacy, space, these are the things that concern me the most. I don't need a roaming profile, I have a roaming PC for that. I don't like the idea that someone somewhere can "index" my files so that they could, possibly, at a later date of course, be searchable in a search engine, very scary. And what about space??? Can I have 1TB+ of storage so that I can access my "home videos" on the go??? Oh and how long will it take to stream those said videos through either normal or mobile broadband? I'm going to need at least a gigabit connection to the internet.

No thank you, I'll pass.

MSI readies netbooks with HDDs and SSDs

Thumb Up


Smart move and I can see this becoming the mainstream for netbooks as well as laptops here in the near future. It just makes too much since. And I can see this being the norm for a while until SSD's come down in prices comparable with standard HDD's.

Fifty years later, steam appears on British railway

Thumb Up

Cool! But Why?

Interesting, I really love the old steamers, but besides the historical significance in using steam, is the real reason due to climate effects?

IBM tries its hand in the lawn sprinkler biz


Weather Rock

* If rock is wet, it is raining.

* If rock is green, it rained a while ago.

* If rock is white, it is snowing.

* If rock is shaking, there is an earthquake.

* If rock is dry, the weather is fair.

* If rock is swinging, it's windy.

* If rock is warm, the sun is out.

* If rock is not visible, it's dark outside.

* If rock is under water, there is a flood.

* If rock is gone, there is a tornado (Run!!)

About as reliable as the person at the meteorological department.

Sure it's predicted to rain in my area today, but that doesn't mean that it will.

OMFG, what have you done?

Man, I've been so used to the old style of the Reg that I wasn't quite expecting this first thing on a Monday Morning, well done! It looks great, though it may take a while to get used to. Love the fact that the last 3 BOFH stories are all listed, this is one key reason for going onto the Reg each week, good job Simon, kept me reading for well over 5 years now!

I think a key thing is that it was well over time for the Reg to update, what took you so long? Most other sites seem to update every year and I can't remember the last time the Reg updated. Cool.


Commodore launches little laptop


MMMM, Commodore

Well, £325 is a little much for a C7 based laptop, and with only 1GB RAM, and 80GB HDD, it's not really worth it.

Shame they didn't use the Atom or the Nano in this and triple the hard drive size and double the RAM, then it would be a contender.

I wouldn't be surprised if they were counting on the Commodore branding to sell it.

Also it should come preloaded with a C64 Emulator and every game that was ever made for the C64.

PC Gamers get Bill of Rights

Thumb Up

'Bout time

All I can say about this is that it's about time it happened! Would actually make purchasing of games worth it again. You can also tell that a lot of thought went into this, sure it's not perfect, but neither is the American Bill of Rights, that's why this should be open to amendments, voted on by gamers for gamers.

MS beefs up WinXP Pro's anti-piracy nagware

Gates Horns

You have to be kidding right?

Isn't XP the first OS that MS has been able to track??? That would explain a lot about how it's the most pirated version of Windows to date, mainly because it's the only one that they have semi concrete numbers on.
