Shouting lager, lager... Carlsberg's beer AI can now tell pilsners apart


Carlsbergs robot beer sniffer managed to find taste in their beer?! Must be able to go to 11 to handle real beer.

IBM Cloud TITSUP: Techies investigate troubling storage underperformance


The same problem in AMS01, AMS03, FRA02, FRA04 and MIL01. Which looks like different availability zones (or whatever IBM calls it) and regions. So it is impossible to build a highly available system with IBM cloud.

Who are their main customers, hobbyists?

Uber self-driving car death riddle: Was LIDAR blind spot to blame?


Uber cut some corners to save a buck, who would have thought.

IBM gives Services staff until 2019 to get agile


They probably need to go through some mandatory really boring videos, answer some stupid questions and voila, they are agile! And get a silly badge labelled "Agile practioner" which they can publish on LinkedIn.


Fail-fast, again and again.

IBM lifts its 22-quarter shrinking sales curse: Finally, a whole 1% uptick


In the result "Cloud" is mentioned twice as "Cloud revenues" and "Cloud Platforms" (lumped together with "Technology Services" for some reason). But "Cloud" is also a part of "Strategic Imperatives", right?

If the objective is to obscure the reality for those like me with limited cognitive abilities by using a cloudy message it certainly worked.

Good lord, Kodak's stock is up 120 per cent. How? New film? Oh. It launched a crypto-coin


Kodak moment

Loosing money in an instance.

IBM’s complete Meltdown fix won’t land until mid-February


If "a party" has access to your systems perhaps you have a bigger problem than Meltdown and Spectre?

Elon Musk says he's not Satoshi Nakamoto and is pretty rubbish at Bitcoin


Must be Al Gore.

80-year-old cyclist killed in prang with Tesla Model S


If The Register was to report every time any other car brand was involved in an accident there would not be room for much else.

F-Secure's Mikko Hypponen on IoT: If it uses electricity, it will go online


IoT Jammer

If these things really will be able to go online without using Wi-Fi then there should be a market for IoT-jammers.

The Big Blue Chopper video that IBM might want to keep quiet


I am disappointed, the limo is a wimpy Mercedes and not a Rolls-Royce?!

IBM SoftLayer plays hardball in object storage price cuts


Ibm sells PC:s, disks and Intel servers because it is commodity and moves to high margin offerings like, eh, cloud.

IBM. Sigh. Revenues. Sigh. Down. Sigh. For the 20th quarter in a row


Cognitive solutions, up 2.1 per cent? Considering it seems that they are betting the farm on this it should be 21 per cent up.

Ex-IBMer sues Google for $10bn – after his web ad for 'divine honey cancer cure' was pulled


Potent potables

Maybe he asked Watson before he left IBM.

Potent potables $200

"A cures for cancer"

"What is honey?"

Apple Pay is a tidy payday for Apple with 0.15% cut, sources say


Re: what's the date today?

Better way:

Get wallet out

Find real money

Give real money to shop assistant

Get real money (change) back (if applicable)

Put real money (change) in wallet (if applicable)


Apple, Google, NSA, Visa etc safe. No one knows what, where and when you have shopped (except the shop assistant who has forgotten you the same second the money has been received).

It's a TAB-tastrophe – 83 million fewer units to ship in 2014


Re: People are keeping them for three years?

They are still trying to figure out what they are good for.

'F-CK YOU GOOGLE+' ukelele missy scoops BIG WAD of $$ - for Google


Re: yea google F*ck you

Why not create a nonsense Google+ account, which is empty, if you don't want to expose your "full name and various other personal details"?
