Top 10 endpoint backup mistakes

HP goes NDA bananas...or what says another hack who went to the gig at the Cafe La Paris rather than the Lernout & Hauspie thang we were subjected to at La Registere... The hack tells us that before getting into the gig, the mad HP geezers made 30 or so journalists sign stringent NDAs about the new LaserJet printers that HP does not want the world to know about. Unfortunately, said our source, the minute the NDAs were signed, they were whisked away and out of the seven new announcements, none of the 30 hacks could remember which were under embargo or not. That means, of course, it's all public knowledge now.... Kicking Pat...now where we? We got so strung out by Mr Gelsinger's massage (apparently everyone gets them but not -- apparently a good kicking and thumping) that we forgot the keynotes of his KeyNote speech. Mr Gelsinger spent quite a deal of his time plugging 101 devices into a USB port and then announced, very proudly, that Intel had applied to the Guinness Book of Records for a world record.

Some months back The Register was shocked out of a pre-dawn stupor by the sound of the BBC World Service introducing a reporter called "Tory Blair," obviously a slur on our own dear prime minister and not a reporter at all. Now we've just heard the BBC claim to have a reporter called Clinton Rogers. This is not a reporter - this is an allegation. Which we believe he still denies. Ish.

And bless you ZiffiDavis, for being such an appropriate target for Dow Jones newswire's latest typo. Bless indeed Dow Jones, for the swiftness of its draw, if not the sureness of its aim. "Ziff-Davis Inc. To Advertise On Ziff-Davis TV Show >ZD," the headline says... But actually it's Egghead.com doing the advertising.
