Musk tells advertisers to 'go f**k' themselves as $44B X gamble spirals into chaos

Mitoo Bobsworth

A special needs management nightmare

Who has a boss that’s an ass, Yaccarino

Who lets him off with a pass, Yaccarino

Who’s spin is see-through as glass, Yaccarino

Poor Yaccarino - ay!

Tesla sues Swedish government after worker rebellion cripples car biz

Mitoo Bobsworth

Exponentially ridiculous

Can't wait for the lawsuit where Musk sues the World for emotional distress when it finally gets fed up with tolerating his overbearing bullshit.

Tesla, Musk likely aware of Autopilot deficiencies behind Florida fatality, says judge

Mitoo Bobsworth

Autonomous vehicles? Bollocks to that.

If anyone is so disengaged/disinterested/incompetent in their driving experience, may I suggest public transport? That way, you can do all of those things that are far more important to you than focussing on the road.

IBM-led advertising X-odus gains steam as more flee Musk's platform

'Elon Musk is a cunt' - I did nazi that coming!

In 1995, Robert Metcalfe, founder of 3Com, said: "I predict the internet will soon go spectacularly supernova and in 1996 catastrophically collapse."

He missed the mark spectacularly - however Musk is currently working hard to turn his little corner of it into a black hole.

What's really going on with Chrome's June crackdown on extensions – and why your ad blocker may or may not work

Mitoo Bobsworth


A tech geek buddy put me on to Brave browser after I was bitching about how much of a pain the advertising was becoming. Hardly touched Firefox or Chrome since, my Facebook page is massively cleaned up & zero ad interference from Youtube. Happy camper here.

IBM pauses advertising on X after ads show up next to antisemitic content

Mitoo Bobsworth

I love how haters always bitch about stuff they know is a trigger point for them, but still actively & consciously go to those places. I guess it's some kind of addiction.

Mitoo Bobsworth

Narcissism wins

All Musk really has to do is STFU & run X in a civil manner that attracts advertising revenue - a bridge too far for this one, apparently.

X fails to remove hate speech over Israel-Gaza conflict

Mitoo Bobsworth

It's an X parrot

- still, beautiful plumage, the Elongated Muskrat Blue.

Want a Cybertruck? You're stuck with it for a year, says Tesla

Mitoo Bobsworth

Musk will find a way.

Mitoo Bobsworth

More money than brains?

I know taste is a personal thing, but I can't fathom why anyone would buy such a hideous miscarriage of styling other than for having a laugh.

Apple exec defends 8GB $1,599 MacBook Pro, claims it's like 16GB in a PC

Myth Vs Wallet

Bye bye, Apple - wallet wins from now on.

Musk thinks X marks the spot for Grok AI engine based on social network

Mitoo Bobsworth

Should have called it Ouroboros

As it appears to be a closed loop system that will eventually devour itself.

Apple's year ends with surging services, a billion subscribers, and a view of generation next

Mitoo Bobsworth


As I read at this article, it leads me to consider that Apple has changed its' focus of innovation to avarice.

On-by-default video calls come to X, disable to retain your sanity

Mitoo Bobsworth

Bad thinking

Seems to me Musk will find out the hard way that bankers don't have a sense of humour when it comes to a lack return on investment.

FTX crypto-villain Sam Bankman-Fried convicted on all charges

Mitoo Bobsworth


I'd be just as concerned about the idiots, especially the rich ones, who took him at his word without practicing any due diligence. SBF's venture had the hallmarks of all the other 'miracle dividend' outfits of the past - the fantastic returns, the conspicuous publicity, and especially the fawning press/media articles. I guess wilful ignorance & short sighted greed never changes.

Twitter further restricts free tier with option to limit replies to verified accounts

Mitoo Bobsworth

Pretty soon it will be just Musk xitting himself multiple times for a 'job well done.'

Chat2024 stuffs US election hopefuls into generative AI so you can be an 'informed voter'

Mitoo Bobsworth

Oh, spare me days!

As if US electioneering wasn't farcical enough already.

Chrome, Firefox and more caught with their WebP down, offer hasty patch-up

Mitoo Bobsworth

Wot, Every Bloody Picture?

One of the more unnecessary & irritating image compression formats around.

The Anti Defamation League is Musk's latest excuse for Twitter's tanking ad revenue

Mitoo Bobsworth


Musks narcissistic ego clearly starving for attention again.

Musk's X caught throttling outbound links to websites he doesn't like

Re: Mr unlimited free speech strikes again

$44 billion for his own megaphone? That's the most expensive free I've heard of.

Mitoo Bobsworth

If clues were shoes...

... then Elon is still running around barefoot.

One weekend's TwitX chaos brings threats from Japan; indemnity promises for users; prominent account seizures

Re: I've been wondering....

As many are 'banging' on about the porn connotations, maybe a 'spooge' would be more in line with the new name.

On the record: Apple bags patent for iDevice to play LPs

Mitoo Bobsworth

Patently ridiculous

A bit late for April Fools Day, isn't it?

Aliens crash landed on Earth – and Uncle Sam is covering it up, this guy tells Congress

Mitoo Bobsworth

I guess we'll read about it

These kind of pronouncements usually precede a book release (seems to be the American way), so maybe we can expect some form of hardcover tat from Ryan Graves soon.

What does Twitter's new logo really represent?

Mitoo Bobsworth

X? Y??

It represents the hubris of an attention seeking nuisance with about as much business savvy as a bag of hammers.

Musk's X tries to win advertisers back with discounts

Mitoo Bobsworth

The Dunning–Kruger effect

Seems to be accelerating with this one.

Twitter name and blue bird logo to be 'blowtorched' off company branding

Mitoo Bobsworth

Re: Y oh Y

So instead of Tweets on Twitter, will there now be Xcretions on X? Would a Retweet be an Xlax?

Mitoo Bobsworth

Re: Press

Dear Elon,

please stop asking us to support your X. The damage is done & she's never coming back. If you have to ask Y, look in the mirror.

Your's sincerely,


(rehash of an old joke)

Is there some logarithmic scale that transforms mildly maladjusted nerds into overbearing twats in proportion to their wall street valuation? Genuinely curious.

I see a design flaw

The wheels are round.

Elon Musk launches his own xAI biz 'to understand reality'

Mitoo Bobsworth

He might start ...

... by trying to understand what it means to be a decent human being. Besides which, we already have the answer - 42.

Re: Surprisingly orthodox for Jony

Now THAT'S the Jony Ive flannel I remember.

Mitoo Bobsworth

Surprisingly orthodox for Jony

I would have at least expected it to be in the shape of a birdbath or a toaster - anything but the conventional.

Musk sues law firm for overcharging Twitter when Twitter was suing Musk

Mitoo Bobsworth

Musk is a twat.

That's all.

Important note: Humans can use AI to make music and still bag a Grammy

Mitoo Bobsworth

Depends, really -

Both of these lyric sets were written by real people. One of them would definitely benefit from AI intervention.

"HOLY WARS - THE PUNISHMENT DUE" - Single by Megadeth

Brother will kill brother

Spilling blood across the land

Killing for religion

Something I don't understand

Do you kill onGod's command?

A country that's divided

No foolish naive stand

Now that you've all tried it ... ChatGPT web traffic falls 10%

Mitoo Bobsworth

Marketing 101

Nothing gets attention like controversy. Thanks to all the idiot, pie in the sky punditry around ChatGPT, they got most of it for free. Couple that with peoples generally short attention span on the interwebs, and any number of other things to get excited/upset about and I think most will move on to the next shiny object someboby tweets/threads/blogs/jumps up and down for monetization about.

From cage fight to page fight: Twitter threatens to sue Meta after Threads app launch

Re: 'English' is a very rich language.

Would serve as a good middle name for the Elongated one - Elon Risible Musk. Works for me, anyway.

Florida man insists he didn't violate the law by keeping Top Secret docs

Mitoo Bobsworth

Re: If the only antidote for anti-democracy is truth and democracy

There is another unfortunate factor with the representational democratic system, in that there will always be a significant percentage of stupid people who will believe any old s**t their candidate/rep will say without verification or validation.

Mitoo Bobsworth

Re: TheRegister is obviously a liberal hack controlled rag

I fully support your freedom to choose your representative. You should send money to the Diet Coke Don right away - clearly he needs it more that you, now that he's no longer in possession of such a valuable revenue stream.

I guess DOJ can add breaking & entering to the Dayglo Bunglec*nts charges, then.

Orange man,

Orange state, orange jumpsuit. I think the colour Orange is owed an apology here.

Metaverse? Apple thinks $3,500 AR ski goggles are the betterverse

Mitoo Bobsworth

I think the barrier here is...

...people not using them because they don't want to look like a complete twat, wearing ski goggles & waving their arms about in the office.

Professor freezes student grades after ChatGPT claimed AI wrote their papers

Mitoo Bobsworth

What happened to hard work?

As AI is used more & more to 'level the playing field', as it were, I can see a wave of mediocrity flooding humanity as brains are used less & less.

Musk tried to wriggle out of Autopilot grilling by claiming past boasts may be deepfakes

Mitoo Bobsworth

He LOVES the attention

until accountability starts having a good, hard look.

US government says Silicon Valley Bank depositors can get their cash on Monday

Mitoo Bobsworth

Pigs at the trough

SVB pay themselves bonuses just hours before the FDIC shut them down. To quote from the movie "The Big Short" - 'they weren't being stupid, they just didn't care.'

Silicon Valley Bank seized by officials after imploding: How this happened and why

Mitoo Bobsworth

They might be on to something

I've read several stories of 'crazy' old people keeping their cash in secret stashes around their homes - it's not sounding so crazy now.
