Choc horror: The UK's Information Commisioner probes its own mammoth £6,248 Hotel Chocolat spend


Worth every penny :-)

Hotel Chocolat choccies are de-li-cious!! :-)

$500bn fewer greenbacks to be forked out on IT in 2020 due to... well, you know what


Does anyone actually believe anything Gartner forecasts?

Goodness me, where did this "journalist ?" go to school :-(

BT's outgoing CEO: He's officially gone, but he'll score £1m in pay, pension until Oct


Re: BT

With that attitude you're not likely to get the job..

Just forget what Gartner said about AI in June 'cos CIOs are all over it now apparently


Is Gartner ever right??

Germany has a problem with the entire point of Amazon's daft Dash buttons – and bans them


"Sour Krauts"?

Can't Kieren McCarthy think of a better line?

Who is the dumb one here..

Corel – yeah, as in CorelDraw – looks in its Xmas stocking and discovers... Parallels


Re: Oh no!

It's Corel (short for: Cowpland Research Laboratory) not Coral.

If you had used the settings in PSP, you would not have received all those annoying ads.

Something to do with the famous "Between the user and the keyboard"?

PaintShop Pro is an excellent program, the user just needs to learn how to use it.

I am sure The Gimp doesn't spontaneously turn your photos into works of art without having to hit a few keys :-)


Re: Oh no!

Oh dear..

I am a life long PaintShop Pro user (I beta test for Corel) and have observed that over the years nothing much worth while has been added to PSP, but one would not believe that reading the 'promotional' words!

There used to be a saying : "Corel is where good software goes to die".

Can't add much more to that.


It may be poor man's Photoshop, but GIMP casts a Long Shadow with latest update


Straightened Tower of Pisa?

That means no more tourist and no income from the tourist trade, tsk tsk.

PaintShop ProX9 straightens images very nicely... plus lots of other things.

I have used it since 1998 and have no plans to change :-)

As with all image editors, it's the person using the keyboard who is in charge.

Don't blame the editor..

Rich professionals could be replaced by AI, shrieks Gartner


My neighbour works for them, his 'intelligence' matches his company's.

What a lot of bozos.

Gartner halves tech splash forecasts, blames the US dollar


Re: Ahh Gartner

My neighbour works for Gartner, he sure is weird, must be influenced by his company.. or is it the other way around..

'Clearance sale' shows Apple's iPad is over. It's done


Re: Education PC seller says Apple is no good in that market

Uh?? Who on earth is Edd China.

I thought this was about Apple.

I for one LOVE my iPad(s).

I wish Apple continued success, their products are excellent.

Too much negativity here, but I am not surprised.

The Register is a great place to be informed.

A shame that so many who contribute their' comments' would be better off being sent to Mars on a one-way ticket.

Grow up you lot.

HMS Queen Lizzie to carry American jets and sail in support of US foreign policy


Re: So, umm

I think we're already getting close .. with all the "Hi guys" "You guys" "Journey" "Kids (baby goats?)" etc, oh and a good dose of swearing :-((

Cyber-security pro? Forget GCHQ, BT wants to hire 900 of you


It's the same as getting NHS staff from 'somewhere'.

Happy new year, VW: Uncle Sam sues over engine cheatware


How very American, sue sue and sue some more, that's how to make easy money :-(

Pure and simple: Why Gartner's and IPOing storage biz's numbers didn't line up


My idiotic neighbor works for Gartner, so I am not surprised.

Remember Corel? It's just entered .DLL hell


Re: I confess - I use Corel

Easy, don't import .pspimages and you're fine.

I do resent the comments made here about Corel being old hat.

Heaven forbid the user would be forced to use the ghastly Photoshop, no thanks.


Re: 100 millions users?

Oh come on folks, Corel might be a tad behind the times, but the software is good.

Yes, I use their software and have done for years, especially PaintShop Pro which (for the price) can, in the right hands, stand up to the mighty Photoshop (way too expensive).

But nowadays everyone wants one-click and you have a masterpiece, so the right hands are likely few.

Give Corel a break and stop sniping :-(

Shock! Nork-grating flick The Interview WILL be in cinemas – Sony


Why did Sony make this film in the first place,

Is this what 'freedom of artistic expression' is all about?

If it was a film about killing off The Queen, would it still be seen as 'acceptable'?

When the never ending diet of how-to-kill anything and everything so beloved of Hollywood and dished up as 'entertainment', is it any wonder people are so violent :-(

Curious to know if the UK's Tory-led government is a mega spy? Answer: Yes


Re: I say good

Er zijn stomme mensen en meer stomme mensen, niets van aan trekken :-)

For the non-linguists: there are dumb people and more dumb people, don't let it get to you.

They're very welcome to know what I get up to, I have nothing to hide.

I don't kill people and only shout at stupid motorists.As far as I know that isn't a threat to anyone :-)


We're not on the Gartner Magic Quadrant? Just imagine our concern, says HDS


My neighbour works for Gartner, he is a first class idiot, so is his company :-(

How to strip pesky copyright watermarks from photos ... says a FACEBOOK photo bod


Re: Probably only suitable for a thumbnail anyway

I can remove copyright marks, but don't.

I pay for my software, but never anything Adobe, which is wayyyy over-priced and over-hyped.
