The Register is losing its credibility and is barely worth syndicating
anymore. I remember when they titled an article "New Zealand finds Black
Cocks Hard to Swallow" when referring to some rugby game (if I recall
correctly). Meaningful titles are very fundamental, let alone good content.
They now go for 'eye catch' rather than quality reporting.
