As the investigation is currently under way there was a dawn raid at his omh and there was little resistance.

Police are soldering on getting evidence.

Isn't GPS offline for a purpose

So if GPS is made to be up to X meters out depending where you are this could make turning left or right very interesting. I wouldnt want to live on the corner of a road and have people landing on my driveway!

You could just imagine what a not up to date map could do to a mini roundabout/pedestrian crossing/traffic lights/cross roads. It would provide hours of You Tube style entertainment.

And all of that because people wont buy a map for £9.99 in BP including a free torch or cup.

Cant wait for your first helpdesk call saying they have 'lost' their phone in a taxi/pub/ left it on a train/gave it to the wife/kid has stolen it and flogged it on eBay and then the cost of replacing an iPhone each time.

Dragons Den

I just have this vision of Balmer and Gates sitting on leather chairs (next to Page and Brin) saying, in a Duncan Bannatyne way.

'I will give you £240m for a 1.6% stake in your company.'

All of this for a company that doesnt take any sort of fee from its members and could be wiped off the face of the planet is a matter of minutes when people move onto the next best thing.

Got to admit the figures just dont make sense to me.

Got to ask....

Why the hell is Lordy of the Lordy Lord Tribesman sticking his nose in this area of the populations enjoyment.

Should he read his own 'Mission Statement' off their site and go and try and fix what the current government has completely screwed up which is higher education.

What a complete wanker. Please email me Lord Twatsman if you disagree. God I am pissed off now....

"Britain can only succeed in a rapidly changing world if we develop the skills of our people to the fullest possible extent, carry out world class research and scholarship, and apply both knowledge and skills to create an innovative and competitive economy. The DIUS mission is to work with our partners to meet these challenges."

Testing blown away....

"tracking and data collection on 10 pupils within the school" this actually turned out to be one pupil but the computer said there was 10 so it must be right.

@ 2 Billion rats in a wheely bin

You would get a sticker on the side of that bin around here saying they cannot accept this amount of rubbish.

Then you would leave it there for the next 2 weeks hoping they would pick it up next time, but at the rat these little furry friends reproduce it could be 9 billion.
