Hollywood: How do we secure high-def 4K content? Easy. Just BRAND the pirates


From the sounds of it.... take 4K video... create 3K video, problem solved.

Microsoft takes second run at platform cloud


We recently moved out datacentre from Xerox to Azure solutions cutting the bill from $1.8m to little under $600,000 so these services are nothing to be scoffed at, the ability to spin up servers in seconds or have additional servers automatically spin up and down under load is a god send. We had to take a hit on licensing losing what we owned in perpetual licenses (some $300,000) in exchange and server costs but that will be recouped in the first six month's and office 365 is working out great for us as well

Nokia, Microsoft put on brave face as Lumia 925s parachute into Blighty

Samsung vs Apple: which smartphone do Reg readers prefer?


None of the above

Nokia EOS will be my next phone in release. I may also go for a backup android if the Xbox music app is released by then.

Review: Dell XPS 12 Windows 8 tablet-cum-Ultrabook


Re: tiles

Buy a vivobook then


Re: It runs Windows 8 and therefore is crap

Read what you said back to yourself... now... hang your head in shame... "Equally capable" I suppose this sort of idiocy was inevitable after opening the internet up to every Tom, Dick and Harry..

Microsoft: We're SO SORRY for Media Center TV guide titsup


If you use windows media center

Buy the amulet voice remote for flawless speech control over tv, film and music. My blind parents have been using it for over 2 years and its the best speech implementation I've seen... Ever, check out my demo on YouTube search for "DIY speech enabled TV" you'll never go back to mashing buttons again or searching through lists for your films and tv series

BlackBerry 10: AWESOME. If the hardware matches it, RIM jobs are safe



The sooner we get back to RIM and Nokia running the phonesphere the better

Microsoft said to be building Apple TV adversary



If it doesn't allow cable or satellite input I don't care.

Microsoft spruces up crap apps in early Win8 update


Active desktop

They should bring that back in this html5 era, it would be awesome for sales people

Windows Store size doubles: Now 0.3% the size of Apple's

Apple threatens to ruin peace worldwide with voice-controlled iMacs


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtRdwPuw1lk please check out this video of my voice controlled media centre made for my blind parents. it is used day in, day out flawlessly for over 2 years and makes their lives so much easier. Voice tech is so much quicker and easier when controlling media, you should all be using it!


Afraid not

My parents are both blind and voice control with media centre is a brilliant gift to them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtRdwPuw1lk such commands as copy DVD, play movie battleship, play artist Abba, record formation street next Wednesday on ITV, are all possible and faster than using any mouse or keyboard to find media. All set up for about £400


Check it

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtRdwPuw1lk and it all costs pittance

Windows Phone 8 stands a chance as Apple, Android dither


Re: Don't count them out yet

Microsoft Stepped in to save them too... I'm seeing a pattern here.

Reg hack runs Windows 8 on 82-inch touchscreen


Windows 8 is amazeballs

look at these commentards... If you saw it, you'd be straight over there to mess with it. Stop being retards.

One more try: Metro apps are now 'Windows Store' apps



That it all

Google's Nexus 7 tabs 'can't perform' if flash RAM crammed



Screen stops responding all the time on mine... Makes me want to throw it against the wall. Its not about how many cores you have if your OS is poo

Intel demos next-generation voice and gesture interfaces

HTC's 4G patent beef could get iPhone 5 BANNED in US


More of this until we are back to those big ass laptops :)

Listen up, Nokia: Get Lumia show-offs in pubs or it's game over


@tommy that features on all Nokia wp7 phones anywho


As a phone

If its anything like WP7 then its more responsive than android, has a better keyboard than iPhone and apparently has a great battery. The phone on WP7 is super fast although I would suggest the keypad is visible by default


2 please

I'll have red and blue or maybe yellow.. I'm into WP7, all my music comes through zunepass, which share the same account on both the WP7 phones (using the same email address) and is used in my parent home cinema and in my own home. I'll wait till November for the phone and buy them unlocked using the additional Nokia stocks I picked up during the price crash at the launch..

then I'll just have to wait for a pink and blue surface to arrive :)

Apple to launch streaming online radio service?


Forgot to mention

My speech enabled media centre is.... Awesome!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?nomobile=1&v=UtRdwPuw1lk


I have Zune on two WP7 devices (using the same account when setup) my fathers media centre, my PC and Xbox... Great for £8.99 especially when you can download all you want... My only issue is that ministry of sound albums still have to be bought



Streaming radio services are crap, at least with zunepass and Spotify you can download and keep your music as long as you're subscribed.

Windows Phone 8: What Nokia and Microsoft must do


Lol OpenGL? Why when they have a backlog of tens of thousands of DirectX games ready to be ported now that DirectX is available in WP8

Apple 'iTV' looks like Cinema Display, says Throat

look on youtube for the amulet remote

Windows phones send user location to Microsoft

Jobs Horns

well durrr

Maybe turning off the "find my phone" location service will sort out the tin hat paranoids? Seeing as that's the option you seem to be discussing.

Apple Mac Mini with Snow Leopard Server


Dear oh dear

Lol... "server", I think we all get the drift and i think El reg is once again showing it's bias... £900 for a slow, non redundent "server" that's nothing more than an expensive media server. I would consider it for a 5 user workplace if it was £300

Google suffers international outages, slowdowns

Schmidt is at the bilderberg meetings today, he's obviously showing off how he can turn it off and one with a simple switch, prepare for mass net failures in the future

Microsoft kicks Ubuntu update in the hardy herons

Gates Halo

Ahhh El Reg

I see my replies are now being dismissed / censored / whatever. Very well El reg, I'm off, you're site and obviously now your moderators seem be a bunch of elitists passing judgments that sway to the minority rather than reporting to the majority, and of which the majority of who rarely know what the hell they are on about or what foundations today’s business is built on.

Just to clarify I enjoy reading and arguing the comments from other OS users and in some cases they raise valid points but I'm not staying around a place that censors my replies to validate my side of an argument,

Gates Halo

you guys..

Will you lot ever stop moaning. At least a windows OS doesn't need updating daily.... I'm talking to you "crappy crud" or whatever you're calling yourself these days.
