Airport baggage screener charged with stealing passengers' stuff


eBay feedback

Looking at this chaps feedback, you can certainly see he has sold one or two very nice bits of kit in the last few months.


I assume that the police will be contacting all the buyers to return the goods.

When they do, will the buyers be able to claim back form PayPal/eBay under the buyer protection system?


PM Brown dusts off one interweb per child plan (again)


3 Strikes and they will be off.

Fantastic, give a kid a PC and a net connection for free, then after 6 weeks they get struck off for downloading too much.


BT's 'illegal' 2007 Phorm trial profiled tens of thousands


Who was in the trial ?

So if Phorm and BT don't know who was in the trial. How do they know if the trial was a success.

You only do a trial to get results !

How to speed up Windows Vista: official and unofficial tips


Stripping Vista Bare

So when you have stripped out all the new features, you are left with something approaching XP.

Lord Triesman on P2P, pop-ups and the Klaxons



"So I happily put it in the car CD player... Doesn't work !?! I say, f**k DRM !

I put it in my old portable CD player... Doesn't work !?! F**k DRM !"

Don't forget, 'Copy Protected' disc's are not CD's !!

They don't conform to the Phillips Standard, that's why they can't have the Compact Disc logo on them. So I assume they actually count as software.

My feeling is that not counting as CD's should mean that they are not counted in the CD charts etc..


@ Eddie Edwards

"Downloading IP from a P2P site is simply avoiding paying money for a product you desire. If the product has no utility you wouldn't bother downloading it, now, would you? ffs."

So why when I want to buy a new jacket, don't ai just buy the first one that I see. Why do I have to try on 3-4 before I find one that feels right.

It's the same with music. Until you have listened to it you don't know if you wan't to buy it.

I have many thousand LP's / CD's / Tapes. I used to spend hours in record shops listening to tracks when I was younger. The shop assisants would recommend tracks etc.

You can't do this anymore, so the only option is to download to tryout new music, it's only now that I'm spending more and more on physical media.

BMW gives away 5 Series and $850k


re:- How?

With the details they have asked for, they can get credit, be it cards loan etc.. all against the senders name.

This is what everyone forgets, It's not just bank details they need.
