You think web sites have to pick a side, and declare their everlasting allegiance to one cult?
The Reg has many contributors, who undoubtedly have very different opinions. I for one prefer it if the editors do not enforce purity of dogma across the board, thankyouverymuch.
I am not certain that complete anonymity is important, but having distinct, separate identities does matter to me, e.g. for business and friends.
I want to be able to post pictures of my holidays in a place that is not side-by-side with my business messages. Google+ circles is only the first step towards this; for instance, it does not (yet) allow to put different profile pictures for different circles.
Yeah, that'll work...
How about giving the money back to the shareholders, Michael?
People who are commissioned by Microsoft to conduct a study on patents can hardly claim to be independent anymore...
...Not that his previous attacks on Google left much doubt.
It is sad that you need to be an organization such as ICANN to dare take the bluff of such a ridiculous lawsuit.
H2646 – Kill all the lawyers.
Not in Switzerland
A group used to follow the police around and place themselves 50 meters before with large signs...
Is this the best that the US can do? "We have viruses on our top-notch weapons and we can't get rid of them"?
I assume they have been cutting corners on security measures in the rush to bring drones to combat, but still...
Right actor, wrong movie...
First thing is to trademark it
We lose money for a few years, then some schmuck will build a store that looks like ours... Then we can sue him for millions! Millions! Muhahaha!!
Better than Carlsberg?
Not taking risks, are you?
Anyway, TGIF! I'm off.
How 500 M$ patents bring 2 G$... There is a 75% chance that the courts will invalidate them, I guess...

More money to the wrong people...
H6242 – Kill all the lawyers
So what have we learned today?
Pundits predicting Apple announcements are shit. I wonder if they feel ashamed of their naked linkbaiting.
Corners have been CUT??
That means rounded corners, then?
I think the Reg disproved your argument
I have seen regularly Microsoft ads on the Reg. And don't tell me they are kind with Microsoft.
Like anybody was going to like that...
"...and its well-developed legal system..."
And how exactly is that a positive thing for IT?

Microsoft wants to kill cell phone makers
The same way it killed desktop makers. Soon, only Apple will be making money at this game.
The Galaxy Tab looks overpriced in comparison... Ok, so the Fire does not have 3G.
Still, it must be hard for other android tablets makers when Amazon launches a loss leader.
"Yes – No – It's complicated"
Names also have a tendency to follow no rules...
All these problems will only disappear when we are all identified by a 20-digit number.
When caught, deny
Well, it might be that they do not actually USE these cookies to track you. But why do they exist, then? Is that a "bug"?
I'll drink to that!
My paypal account got locked
With my money inside. Needless to say, I was never able to get customer support to do anything about it.
If I ever use an NFC payment system, it sure as hell will not be paypal.
How about some source with your article?
The words "research shows" without precision on which research is another way to say "a guy at the pub told me".
60 nanoseconds = 18 meters
It is easier for me to believe that their lab is 18 meters closer to Geneva than they thought. I believe they are measuring it with GPS.
When will it stop??

"Glasgow kiss chase"
The first thing we do
H2642 – Let's kill all the lawyers
They have 65 and more levels of hierarchy at Microsoft? PLEASE tell me this is a joke!
Kissed on the head?
I wouldn't bet so easily if I were you. I am sure Apple has thought about it, and found a way to stop that... Like having some essential piece added only later.
They have it backwards
They should offer the fondleslab with every TV.
An atmosphere that will see its shares drop irrespective of the company's worth...
It's okay, Groupon shares will drop irrespective of the atmosphere...
So they divided the price by three, and shipped only twice more? Hmm...
Wait a few months, you will have the option
Everything Google launches is in beta
Leveraging their fame, huh?
I can't wait for their inevitable career in the adult entertainment.
Ha! It is well-known that...
The hedgehog can never be buggered at all.
As opposed to...?
Indeed, no consumer will go for something thicker, more heavy, AND more expensive than standard alternatives.
So, Apple are assholes for having a closed system...
And Google is stupid for letting competitors use its kinda-open system (though they already get complaints about not being open enough)?
So, an Apple engineer walks in a bar...
Oh you already knew that one?
So who leaked the encrypted archive?
That is the important thing isn't it? Was it Wikileaks, thinking that the Grauniad would keep the password secret? Or was it the Guardian, demonstrating how clueless they are?
The Wikileaks decision is arguably rational... But they are not helping either.
Fail all over this one.
I remember an old Scrooge McDuck story where he went up in space to collect all that junk... And sell it to collectors back on earth.
So are these leaders?
Or are these part of the crowd that followed? All these arrests feel like arresting everybody in a 1000+ riot, except for the ringleaders.
^ not sure if serious
I *think* it is too much to ask... Cheap notebooks don't have 8 to 12 hours of operation, for one. Or half of what you asked.
How long did it take for Android phones to sell more than iPhones? Yet Android is more advanced than at the time; it should have been faster... Maybe there is only room for one successful tablet.
The less money these lawsuits bring, the better... Even if it means that their will be a retrial.
H6242 - Kill the lawyers
I wonder about the differences
Between what Apple claims, what it actually asks of its suppliers, what it actually expects from its suppliers, what its suppliers actually do...
Though of course, not a single manufacturer is doing any better than Apple, which is just the juiciest target.
Who gives a passphrase to a journalist??
No seriously. WHY did anybody revealed this passphrase?
