Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

The BBC is evidently impressed with the Tw*t-O-Tron - the automated vitriol generator based on real comments from the corporation's "Have Your Say" rantfest - since it has now deployed the service to save enraged Middle Englanders the bother of forming a coherent sentence while venting steam from both ears.

Yup, that looks like the unholy spawn of the Tw*t-O-Tron, and no mistake. We assume that as the programme increasingly uses its own output posted to the Beeb to create new output it will become locked into a turdspurt feedback loop resulting ultimately in a one-word pure essence of indignation with which Daily Mail readers can summarise their feelings towards swan-roasting paedophile immigrants and crack-addicted shoplifting single mothers. ®
