'No deal better than bad deal' approach to Brexit 'unsubstantiated'


Stop the Left-wing garbage -

Hilary Benn wrote a rubbish report that was rejected by the committee - it is very clear that no deal is better than a bad deal. But what really annoys me is that this is meant to be a tech. website - NOT A POLITICAL WEBSITE!! STOP!

IBM's Marissa Mayer moment: Staff ordered to work in one of 6 main offices – or face the axe



Promoting an airhead to CMO in order to meet arbitrary diversity targets is self-flagellation. Last chance to sell your IBM shares!

Want to come to the US? Be prepared to hand over your passwords if you're on Trump's hit list


Tech not politics!

Disappointing article - this is meant to be a tech magazine, not a student rag. Obviously anyone who has ever been inside an airport will realise that not everybody will have to share their Twitter password. This is clearly a measure meant for people who already arouse suspicion. Equally obviously, the same people will already be working on creating fake social media accounts that they can share without fear of exposing their secrets, so the whole exercise is pointless.

Trump's cybersecurity strategy kinda makes sense, so why delay?



I go to The Register for tech, NOT POLITICAL COMMENT. Butt out.

Big Tech files anti-Trump brief: Immigration ban illegal and damaging to business


Fake News

Trump wants to protect American jobs. The big tech companies want to cut costs - they fire Americans and hire poor people from other countries on close to minimum wage. They also steal the cleverest and hardest working people from poor countries - highly unethical. So report both sides of the story please?

Nokia crawls towards comeback with new phones announcement


I despise MS, bought a Nokia phone because it was cheapest. the 'smart. part is not at all intuitive, but as a phone it is brilliant - receives and makes calls when my Android cannot connect, and the battery lasts twice as long too. I will happily buy and Android one if the technology stays with it.
