'I don't recognise Amazon as a bullying workplace' says Bezos


This is exactly the Amazon I know - As a customer

I've been through the process of onboarding as a reseller with two different companies and Amazon are horrific to work with - They are arrogant and have a hugely inflated sense of self-worth for a generic online store.

I'm not at all surprised that they treat each other like crap internally, when they do that to their corporate customers too.



How old is Mr Bailey?

I'm beginning to get how games are reviewed on The Register; Graphics are what counts and shooters score highly. Things are only review on the PS3 or PC. RPGs and involving games score low. If a game is about 5 hours long, thats fine, because thats about how long the attention span of the reviewer is. Is Andrew Bailey 13 by any chance?

Hands on with the new Apple MacBook Air


Uhm exactly?



Like a bad eeepc 1215pn surely?

The 1215pn is about the same size, same weight, has better performance and battery life and is half the price and happily runs OSX and absolutely murders this on graphics performance. So why, unless they were an Apple Cultist, would anyone buy this product?

Naming the Palm Prē: Strategy Boutique OD's on joss-sticks


First Nickname

May I coin the phrase the unbelievably original and awesome name 'Palm Pray' for when it launches and doesn't work properly.

Couldn't they use reverse osmosis instead?

.. to purify the water? Using a semi permeable membrane that only lets through water molecules (already developed) and is Bob your mothers brother? Am I missing a trick here?

HP launches Linux-loaded Eee PC rival

Paris Hilton

Wheres the beach lady?

I am very disappointed that some manufacturers still think it's acceptable to release a new product without a shot of a blonde using it whilst sunbathing. How will I know that the product is sand & water resistant and completely immune to the effects of direct sun on its screen .... erm.

Americans' interest rates plummet


Over how long?

83.5 searches in a day? a week? a Googleplex?

Racist Reg hacks slammed for 'vitriolic hatred'


Welsh aren't a race

They are the same race as the rest of us.... human.
