Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Captain Cyborg is back. That, at least is according to The Guardian's Bad Science section, which notes that the Independent wrote a piece last week citing Kev's latest eye-opener, viz. "watching Richard and Judy on television for half an hour was the best thing to improve IQ test performance, and that reading a book was bad for you".

Terrific stuff, and good to see the roving cyberpundit still giving forth on matters of international import.

But it's hardly news, is it? The piece then goes on to list Warwick's crimes against technology - all of which are familiar to Reg regulars.

The fact is that Warwick is now simply famous for being famous - a bit like Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, the woman for whom the words "chocolate" and "teapot" were first put into a well-known phrase.

The Guardian concludes that Warwick is "obsessed with media coverage. And we can't get enough of him."

Yes we can. Enough. ®
