Internet of Things fridges? Pfft. So how does my milk carton know when it's empty?


of course what will happen is that there will be an rfid in the milk. The smart fridge will monitor how often the milk is taken out of the fridge and when it never return. Over time it will build up a profile of your use and can then "suggest" what you should order and when. This data of course will be mined and abused. I would also expect the fridge to get grumpy if you try to reuse a carton and alert you that your milk must be off. better throw it out. But to be safe will alert you early. If this means you waste milk then all the better for the farmers.

Whats this says gov agency. Our data mining say that this fridge has no bacon in it and is infact full of halal products. They must be terrorist. Look their milk is out of date.

UK claims 'significant lead' in drones after Taranis test flight


I see this as a good thing.

After Leveson: The UK gets an Orwellian Ministry of Truth for real


no point reading the article

It was obvious what AO's opinion is. And as some of the posters have said I would trust a politician over the press any day.

Unless you have been on the end of a press crusade against you, then you have no idea. Who recalls that web dev guy who was attacked by the local paper as his adverts were in competition to theirs?

Furious Stephen Fry blasts 'evil' Reg and 'TW*T' Orlowski


For some reason I cannot understand Mr IOrlowski has taken a personal dislike toi Mr Fry. I usually ignore his insulting articles. I am sure if the click rates went down he would stop being such a twat.

US diplomat: If EU allows 'right to be forgotten' ... it might spark TRADE WAR


I wonder if anyone in America read scifi or fantasy. They would know that any country that behaves as they do is the bad guys and will eventually fall.

Assange needs to get some sunlight and fresh air, say Ecuadoreans


Re: He's the first person...

IIRC he was asked to use a condom claimed he was using it but wasn't

Ask your wife / gf / sister close female friends how they would react to that

Also there is nothing wrong with sleeping heavily. She may have woke up just as he entered. No matter the details she was not willing as she was not awake. therefore its rape. Again as wife / gf / sister etc how they would feel if they woke up to find someone having sex with them.

Japan firm offers mums-to-be 3D printed unborn infants

Try that with Sony's Laptop support on 0870 240 2410 or 0870 2408 unless you put the serial number in you cannot speak to a human. If the SN is out of warranty then the line hangs up.

Yahoo! will! ignore! 'Do! Not! Track!' from! IE10!

What they did was give discounts if you didn't buy the competition and in some cases gave you higher prices if you did buy the competition, or restricted your supply.

Cameron's F-35 U-turn: BAE Systems still calls the shots at No 10


I agree with the points about the f-18 etc, but shut up about the Eurofighter for god sake.

I want to switch off when you start moaning about that.



its obvious CGI, and not good cgi either.

also the design is stupid for what its supposed to be. It would not be stable and would fall over.

Jury retires for weekend in deadlock in Oracle-v-Google verdict


Re: Where are all the fandroids now?

The case is stupid.

Anyone with a brain realises that Oracles case is flawed. Thats why Android users have not filled these threads with comments. Also Android users do not consider their phone OS a religeon the way Apple users do.

Pilots asking not to fly F-22 after oxygen problems


Wot no Lewis ?

Interesting that Lewis didn't write this article.

Would love to be there at reg cenral watching him twitch as an article with critique of the F22.

Your an idiot. The staff can do very little against the little shit and teh little shit knows it.

DoJ could start Apple ebook price-fixing lawsuit this week


Because they were still paying the same amount to the publisher.

Publisher say RRP is £9.99 you pay us 40%

Amazon sell at £4.49 make 50p profit and pass the rest to the publisher. Everyone has the same costs to sell.

So Apple could do the same if they wanted.

LOHAN's fantastical flying truss cleared for lift-off


I like the new idea. I think some sort of droge (?sp?) hanging behind the assembly to stabilise the lauch is a good idea. it will rotate the assembly into the wind and stop the rotation. Think weather vane/cock
