Badges on El Reg? - really, what has the world come to!!!
For me this sort of social, community, collabollocks is the antithesis of what El Reg is about. Did you consult the BOFH on this? Stob? - I bet not.
...and another thing - it's bloody confusing - I thought millions of El Reg moderators had suddenly sprung up all over the forums with their little vulture icons.
Cease and desist immediately!
For those who found this piece just a little sycophantic I suspect the following typo? gives a clue as to what the reporter really thought:
"Two professional skydivers in wing suits parachuted from a blimp 4,000 feet above the Moscone Center, maintaining a constant *steam* (sic) of video until they landed."
you forgot to mention ...may contain projections or other forward-looking statements regarding future events that may not come true.
i agree that they have unsurpassed manufacturing capability but their legacy x86 architecture isn't doing them any favours in the tablet space. support for windows may be an advantage in other form factors but will sell tablets? - espec. if those parts are less power efficient because of the need to support pci.
power efficiency will be key and in this respect the arm camp will have to screw up badly if intel are going to win the tablet wars.
As a precursor to the launch of CSI Slough and CSI Swindon, Ricky Gervais will take over the lead role in CSI replacing the character "Gil Grissom" played by William Petersen. Ricky's character joins CSI as part of an international exchange program.
In related news, the producers of CSI have signed a major deal with Philips Lighting to replace the clapped out lighting currently used on the program with next generation energy saving lamps so that the detectives may finally be able to see what they're doing.
those suggesting to setup POP3 to delete mail from the server are kind of missing the point of gmail.
anyone getting a significant volume of email will have long since given up manually reading, deleting, and filing mail and will instead rely on a good search facility.
ok, so Guy threw a bit of strop but in his defence Google do advertise "Lots of space
Over 2881.077733 megabytes (and counting) of free storage so you'll never need to delete another message."
A less reasonable person than myself might interpret that last bit as a promise or contract.
