Classic Reg

No one else in history would position the QL as upstaging the Mac… but that’s one of the things that makes El Reg so… special. Let’s go with special.

Linus Torvalds's faulty memory (RAM, not wetware) slows kernel development

Anal Leakage

No shit, Sherlock

Leave it to a Reg hack to draw performance comparisons between a Threadripper and an M2 MacBook Air. You know which platform would make for even worse compiling performance? A Psion.

Rigorous journalism

And it comes as no surprise that the Reg hacks fail to mention that Mac OS has had this feature for years now.

But hey, it’s not like Google has thrown Fortnite out of its 30%-off-the-top petri dish for violating rules about in-app purchases. Oh wait...
