If you have any clout left there, can you please ask the team that does the OS Maps app (which I love), make the text actually readable, that pops up when you long-tap on a map and displays your OS reference and lat/long. It's a great feature, but useless as it's illegible

Re: I had hoped from the photo...
The UK site has the 9315 with the option to have Ubuntu pre-installed - is that the same as "certified" ?
This comment brought to by a 9310 running Mint perfectly. It used to have Ubuntu on it, but it refused to upgrade to 20.04 (or maybe 22.04... I forget), Snap kept annoying the *** out of me, and Liam's previous articles persuaded me to take the jump. I love it to bits.
I don't think Dell do the Developer version for the UK - at least I've never been able to find it. The 9320 seems to go by the name XPS 13 Plus over here, and it does look horrific ( https://www.dell.com/en-uk/shop/laptops/xps-13-plus/spd/xps-13-9320-laptop )
Re: Peak Phone
What I think you and pretty much all the commentards above are missing, is that we all are no longer the target audience.
We have two post-18 teenagers in the house, and they absolutely do want the bigger screen and faster processors for gaming and watching TikTok. They do want better cameras for selfies to be uploaded straight to IG/TikTok. They want data plans that will let them stream spotify to them constantly wherever they are.
They don't use SMS, email or the telephone - ever.
And they're going to be around for a lot longer than most of us.
I know this is not the thrust of TFA, but isn't this the logical conclusion of Gerrit?
I've only worked at one place that used it, but all I could see was a bureaucratic sludge on top of git.
It _looked_ like something designed to empower PHBs/control freaks/God coders to engage in the development process.
Genuine question - it could be either the implementation I saw, or my inability to see its strengths....

Re: Babylon Zoo
> Midge & Chris
Yes, yes, yes... alright. But it was on the tape accompanying the tour programme booklet on the Lament tour in 84, so that counts as Ultravox in my book :-)
> The Bloodied Sword.
We'll have to agree to disagree on that one.
I had it on tape decades ago, which obviously got lost, then bought the vinyl 2nd hand last January and had it converted to MP3 a couple of months ago.
I absolutely love it.
Not heard of the Max Headroom stuff - thanks - will go searching.
Um, almost the entire Scots Wikipedia was written by someone with no idea of the language – 10,000s of articles
Back in the day, I had to go on customer site for something, and the boss decided he'd come along as well to glad-hand and schmooze.
Obviously we had to go in his car, because he wanted to show off the Lotus.
When I arrived at his house on the bike, he came out of his house and closed the door behind him, then was shocked at my filthy leathers. "No problem, I'll change", but he didn't want to let me in his house.
Ok - I'll strip off and change on his driveway. When he saw me take my boots off and unzip my leathers, he nervously looked around his Stepford-Wives-esque part of Basingstoke and decided to usher me into his house.
Which is how I ended up standing in my boss's hallway in my boxers when his wife came down the stairs wondering why he'd come back inside...

Tales from the crypt-oh: Nvidia accused of concealing $1bn in coin-mining GPU sales as gaming revenue
Re: I think most people here are missing the point
> Do you think investors didn't know
If they didn't know then they were wilfully blind. *I* knew, just from reading El Reg. I have no sympathy for them at all.
> The investors say Nvidia was supposed
No. That's not what they're saying. They are saying that when the CEO was specifically asked if the bitcoiners were responsible for the huge spike in sales, he said "no".
I think most people here are missing the point
As much as I have no sympathy for the share traders who lost money, people here seem to be missing the fact that the suit is complaining that Nvidia execs *lied to the market* about their business.
- We have 2 types of customers - Group A and Group B
- Everyone knows that the GroupB market is ephemeral and will probably implode soon
- Don't worry - 95% of our sales are to Group A so we're going to carry on making loads of money
If you read the linked pdf in the article, the quotes in the suit are quite iffy, and do sound as though the CEO is deliberately misleading, if not downright lying to, the market.
I don't think the SEC takes kindly to that sort of thing, do they? C.f. Musk et.al.
