Register purists get the blues

All our base are belong to Intel

It's evident that some of our regulars don't much like our new Broadband and e-business sections. Why? We've sold out, that's why. Regular contributor Johnny Honk had this to say:

WTF? Normally I see you biting the hand that feeds IT, today I see you kissing the arse! It now seems that "All YOUR base are belong to Intel"

Jeffrey Judkins went further:

Hah... you loopy limey losers claim to be unbiased but then change to be blue in bed with intel. And with proof.

We need to set the record straight on this one. The Register is a commercial operation which makes all its money from advertising, syndication and sponsorship. That's why you, the reader, get to enjoy us for nothing. In short - No wedge, no Reg.

The idea to change the colour of the graphics was ours, and not a pre-requisite of the association. We wanted it to be completely obvious what was going on. It worked, clearly.

These sponsorship deals do not confer any editorial privileges. It's business as usual for the Vulture Central news team, who, incidentally, have no responsibility for such decisions.

There you go. I knew I could get to the end of that without making a joke. Result!
