Build a business case: developing custom apps

Poll Well, you've had plenty of time to nominate your all-time fave Reg headline in our "Black Cocks" awards and the time has come for you, our beloved readers, to decide the winner.

First up though, our goodie bag goes to Sven, who most closely predicted the top picks. We had so many suggestions that we decided to offer 20 alternatives, but excluded the shameless "NZ finds Black Cocks hard to swallow" since the awards' title clearly offered this an advantage.

So, without further ado, here are your nominations for the best-ever Reg headline:
