Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The Register plays Prince Naseem to paper’s Frank Bruno... When is an exclusive story not an exclusive story? Silly question – you’d think so, but perhaps it’s not as silly as you’d think. We enjoy reading our copy of PC Dealer when it comes in on a Wednesday morning, and today (Weds 14 July) we saw that its front-page lead story was about the collapse of the assembler PC Science. It was an exclusive story according to the PC Dealer strap line. We found this to be very interesting, especially as your super soaraway Register had not only covered this story on 8 July, updated it later that day and followed it up the next day, but we read about it in Dealer’s rival rag MicroScope yesterday as well. It was even on the VNU Newswire - run by the company that publishes PC Dealer - last week. Exclusive – they might think that, we couldn’t possibly comment. ®
