Apple iTunes Store goes '100% DRM-free' - allegedly



"Oh wait, becuase some cracker will work out how to do it for free and they will loose money . . . . ."

Ahem. They did that ages ago.

Microsoft gives XP another four months to live



actually Joe Earl most people have tried it. Why do you think it has such a bad reputation. And why do you think you don't see it installed anywhere other than on the machines of first time computer users. Unfortunately they haven't had their eyes opened yet. And I bet (assuming windows 7 doesn't suck royal camel nuts) they will all be saying "holy fuck, this is a lot better than that Vista shit i've been using".

Nintendo whacked with $5m Wii strap lawsuit


Lol Whut ?

Has anyone played Wii bowling ?

Its a game that requires gentle subtle controller usage to allow for maximum

accuracy......or something like that.

My point is, what kind of physcopath plays wii bowling by hurling the remote so hard

it could smash a tv ? The child obviously needs a good slap.

Damn you now i've got it stuck in my head.

Apple tops customer satisfaction poll as rivals' ratings slide


Oh dear god, please just stop beating the dead horse.

Ok im only going to say this once. And i think i have this whole mac versus pc debate sorted once and for all.

If you are the kind of person that wants to be creative but doesnt have the time patience or mental capacity to learn the inner workings of a computer then you buy a mac.

If you want to also be creative, but also blow away nazis and space aliens in a technicolour bloody frenzy, BUT also like to mod your own machine tweak software and learn about a computers inner workings because you have the time, patience and mental capacity to do so, then you buy a pc.

I have used both macs and pc's over the years and no matter how much they mac lover argue this a mac will never ever ever be as good as a pc for games. I've used an 8 core mac pro with dual nvidias, 8gigs of ram and it struggled to run any half decent recently released game. My pc is literally a quarter of the specs and is twice as powerful, methinks maybe the os licks balls, who knows im no expert.

Mac users you may be smug about your lack of virii etc, but thats only because you are such a small market share that its not worth writing virii to attack you, why spend months researching a worm to only have it infect a handfull of people. Not smart thinking at all.

Macs are becoming more popular, and the more so that they do, the bigger a target that they become for virii. I dont wish to see anything happen you you mac guys, but at the end of the day, if it takes an army of worm writers to take that pointless smug look off of your face, then i cant wait for it to happen. Then i can tell them that finally they have reached the world of REAL computing and not just playing with pretty icons.

Mobile phones cause bad behaviour in kids - report


Here we go again.

When oh when oh when will these people just give it up ?

Stop using pointless statistics in an attempt to scapegoat a particular device or medium as the sole cause of kids being little assholes.

It's about time you woke up and took a big long smell of the coffee and face up to the fact that if a person is an asshole, chances are any kids they have will be assholes too.

Bring back mandatory sterilisation. "you want children ? Ok pass this test and get a license, then once you proove you can be a fit parent, then you can have them"

Sony sells 1m PS3s in UK



"Mario Galaxy is just another rehash of Super Mario Sunshine"

You couldnt be more wrong.

I can tell you've never played a Wii.
