FBI: We found US MILITARY AIRCRAFT INTEL during raid on alleged Chinese hacker


Is there a better way to keep a nonsense industry moving along than by opening up your secret data to the world...

Virgin Galactic's supersonic space ship in 71,000-ft record smash


Re: "They will experience weightlessness at 100km altitude for 1 hour"

Pah, I thought the only thing the UK still made was debt...

Moms stand firm against antenna madness


I wonder why the REG...

Is always gainst Wifi or Mobile Phone radiation groups? Why so pro technology when there is mounting evidence that these transmitters can...

disturb sleep

lead to hormonal imablances

some people even get rashes after these masts are installed?

Now it's true to say most techies won't make it past 60 because of their sedentary lifestyle and lack of personal health, this doesn't mean the rest of soceity should suffer though.

Vodafone blocks World Cup, except for iPhone owners

Jobs Horns

But the iPhone uses HTTP...

And if Vodafone blocked that...well you get the picture.

SA pigeon outpaces broadband

Dead Vulture

I think you're missing the point here...

Telkom is..KREP... to paraphase my fellow south africans.

The phone call rates are amongst the highest in the world and so are the broadband charges..profits are also insanely high and customer service is well...KREP

So this excercise is more a of a protest against Telkom rather than seeing which would be faster. As usual Regheads unleased their supreme geekiness which in fact made you look rather stupid.

We all know a guy on a bike is going to be faster couriering a 1TB disk than ftp, http or whatever method of transport...to put things into perspective...40 pounds a month in south africa buys you a 2mb line with a 5gb cap, excluding line rental. Not so clever now eh?

South Africa official calls for 'outright ban' on pornography


Yo Simon

All I can say is...

It's kinda easy

When you listen to the G`d up sound

A little bit of hip-hop

Will make the world go round

We got the sound for the rest

And it's easy to see

That this Too Phat and Warren G


My negative fellow saffas...and sour poms

Yes I know it's easy to pull apart the faults of South Africa, let the world remember this fledgling democracy was on the verge of a civil melt down only 18 years ago, things aren't great but they could be a lot worse.

Have a look just up the road where the hand of the British Empire left another mark in Rhodesia or as we now call it Zimbabwe.

South Africa was one of the first countries to legalise homosexuality, promote the right's of women in Africa, full smoking ban in public places etc etc.

The constitution is very liberal but you must remember this is a direct reactionary antithesis of the old Apartheid regime

There is a painful transitionary period which is now occurring but there is also a lot of good with an emerging black middle class which can surely only lay the foundation for future generations.

Most importantly, the Springboks are No.1 :)

Rorke's drift towards RAID ASIC replacement


Good ol Rorke's Drift...

What a divine day for the holy Zulu warrior.


Iranian rocket puts satellite into orbit


I think this is fantastic news...

If Israel ever needed a kick up the arse Iran is the nation to do it.

BT price rises go down well


So you think that's bad...

Try line rental in Ireland, its 25 euros per month! In today's money thats about eh....3 pounds?

TVonics DTR-Z500 500GB Freeview+ DVR


It looks rubbish...

Sounds rubbish and has the specs of...you guessed it...RUBBISH!

For truth about Europe, read The Reg


I quite like the idea...

Of a european superstate, it's only a matter of time when the strategic interest in natural resources by the US and China would upset european economic progress. This is why a superstate with trans border laws and regulations is essential for us to move forward, I guess back in the early days of the American revolution the Texans were also against the idea of a Federal Europe, you don't really want the UK to end up like Texas do you? 65% of the population is obese, the borders are largely ineffective...oh wait :P

Games consoles not green enough, claims Greenpeace


I think this one line means it must be true:

"" Phthalates are believed to interfere with sexual development in male mammals.""

Facebook says occupied territories are Israel


Good ol Israel

Whose to say Colianilism ever came to an end...centuries ago explorers used stories of lands far away with abundant riches, in the 21st century they used the Torah and the myth of the chosen people. How far we have come!

Wife rings up £11,000 downloading bill


Everything on your pc should be manually controlled...

If you just leave it up to chance your begging for a kick in the arse. I've never had a problem with roaming charges because I simply won't use my 3g card when abroad. Having said that 11K is ridiculous and I hope these muppets will contest and refuse to pay, what a rip off!

German Government works itself up into Wi-Fi panic


""that there is no consistent evidence to suggest that Wi-Fi poses a threat to health""

Now that has to be one of the thickest sentiments I've ever heard. Just because we don't have the evidence of something causing damage certainly doesn't mean it is safe. I wonder what evidence of lung cancer there was to the first smoker or liver damage for wine drinkers in Roman times.

Common sense says, Radiation cannot be good for you. Once again the UK is way behind it's european counterparts and is impotent in providing the public with any helpful information. Shame on you!

Broadbandit nabbed in Wi-Fi bust


What a load of...

BALLS. How is some thick copper going to even know how you are accessing the web? What if you have an internal 3g modem, or what if your just editing something in word? This seems totally ludicrous. What about all the gits out there with high gain antennas who can use wifi from the other end of a street let alone the house next door. This article is just to scare people, dont be afraid.

EU mashes GM potato plan


These bio companies are so arrogant

To think a few years of research can come up with answers that millions of years of evolution hasn't? The only people who benefit from these vile products are the shareholders, look no further than the GM scandal happening in the US, GM corn is now linked to many diseases including strain on the liver, kidneys and other vital organs. If it aint broke, don't fix it.

Israeli futurologist predicts terror horror


How insightful...

Spewing fear and panick...and coming from an Israeli associated with the US Govt...we haven't heard this before now have we?

Biofuels are the 'next environmental danger'

Shell, BP and Texaco :P
