Gotta admit, I read Register articles on subjects I don't even care about, just to enjoy their deftness with the English language.   We don't seem to have such joyfully irreverent wordsmithing on this side of the pond.

Let me translate:
Your smartTV, if it is using HbbTV, could be hijacked if someone sends it the right signals. It only works on broadcast signals, not cable, so the effort to target more than a couple of TVs is very large. The HbbTV governing body has declined to adjust the standard because the risk isn't high enough.

Richard C Stanford: Ah, British-English. It's like regular English, only retarded.
/It wouldn't really surprise me if over the centuries American-English and British-English evolved into entirely different languages.
//Of course, given the rise of the Internet, this is unlikely.


reread the article, and tell me that they're not already different languages.
