The video review would of been so much better......

Also WTF is this doing on the Reg. Im a proud reader of El Reg, but guys and gals we dont want a review buy some halfwit gadget show host. We want the full on technical orgy that only a geek review can give.

Mind you wouldnt never think about buying it anyway.

"I don't think you realise how many artics it takes to keep just one supermarket going for a week"

Yeah, wouldn't need many if we got rid of 75% of cars. as i could only buy 2 bags of shopping cause i would have to carry them on to the bus. plus it would currently take me 3 buses and about an hour to get to said supermarket in the first place.

Or i could drive......

I use the train when i can but public transport is useless in my area so i need to drive to the train station. My thoughts normally go to de-privatising buses and trains but with our current government im not so sure that's a good idea...

However if sombody starts a petition on removing show off 4x4's (not defenders, but hulking big BMW's with low profile tyres, which are really good when you hit mud honest :-E and that just to ship little Johnny to school cause its all of 2 mins down the road, yes i walked to school and my legs havnt fallen off YET!).....continues have a mutley moment

"yet I was here at 3am ringing up an Indian bloke to exchange 48-digit codes at a sluggish pace "

"Could you please enlighten me what exactly is wrong with the bloke being Indian here?"

Nothing wrong being Indian, lots wrong with hiring anybody with a heavy accent on a english helpline. Plus tbh the M$ call center dont do anything, you could tell them that you've copied the cd so many times you changed your name to Mr Warez FTW and they would still say "ok sir thats been activated for you...(cont. script)"

Microsoft Windows patent will spy for advertisers

Steven Pepperell

maybe im getting the wrong end of the stick

But if somebody asks me to buy software with ads in it they can fluck off, everyday M$ turn me into a bigger Linux user.

The simple fact is PEOPLE HATE ADS and at M$'s prices why should we put up with them. I don’t care if there of interest to me because I can bet there not going to be. If im interested in buying something I go looking for it. For example no matter how many ads I see for vista im not going to buy it cause its crap

While where talking about ads El Reg, what with all the smut filled ads on your page lately, im supposed to be able to read this site at work. Without getting fired!
