Selected savoury products

The National Museum of Computing goes Marie Kondo at Christmas: Luckily all the Lego sparks joy

Ice Cream tub

I didn't realise Lego curator was an actual job, I thought it was just like playing with Lego but not actually sticking the bricks together, it's amazing what you learn on el Reg. I hope they used upcycled ice cream tubs for the sorting as per regulation Lego play.

The UK's Civil Aviation Authority asked drone orgs to email fliers' data in an Excel spreadsheet

Confused

But I thought Sophie O'Sullivan was head of marketing though, I could be wrong.

Perhaps the excel spreadsheet would get heavier when all the data is added, either way it'll never fly.

No m'lud, I wasn't watching pron, I was training my AI system.

It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it.

What simultaneously sucks and doesn't? This new robot vacuum cleaner

hatti

Good but...

Auto hoovers give me cause for concern, a meat based operative has the faculty to determine whether an object is to be sucked up or not. That all important missing pc screw or ear ring is cause to turn off suction mode temporarily to retrieve the errant item.

I'm fearful that although these are keenly priced, they could lead to the cats disappearance with that much suction.

Japanese hotel chain sorry that hackers may have watched guests through bedside robots

Re: Receptasaurus

Receptasaurus

Meat based staff, love it!

That's a generic moniker I expect we'll be seeing a lot more of on el Reg. but I wonder if it fully applies to vegans, just wondering?

Back to drawing board as Google cans AI ethics council amid complaints over right-wing member

Bad toothy peg

Perhaps leaking national security information was not such a great idea after all. Methinks the UK gov are trying the softly, softly catchee Jules rendition approach.

Hitler's wife's lovely lilac knickers fetch £2,900 at auction

Mmmm?

I'm assuming there's some verifiable proof of who they belong to such as DNA tests and some of Adolf's pubes and encrusted reprogoo otherwise they could just be any old pants.

A developer always pays their technical debts – oh, every penny... but never a groat more

The future of tech dept is likely to expand with javascript frameworks coming out seemingly at a rate of one a week via npm. Possibly we're working to a point where no one understands how to fix anything.
