Apple iPhone turns five this Friday

Paul Kerton


I have never been able to understand why people find the lack of MMS a deal breaker. I mean, you have a phone in your hand that is capable of email, and photos are readily attached to these - along with the cost saving for each MMS you're not sending...

So my question is - why MMS when there's email?

Insulin pump maker ignores diabetic's hack warnings

Paul Kerton

Needs clarification

Speaking as a diabetic myself, I can tell you that it would only take a high level of insulin being injected to cause blood sugards to drop to dangerous levels.

This, in turn, manifests itself in a way that makes the diabetic appear to be drunk, rapidly followed by a diabetic coma, and potentially death if not treated rapidly.

Most diabetics whose blood sugars drop to these low levels are unaware, and frequently unable to do anything about it until it's too late to do so.

In a nutshell - this hack could kill, plain and simple.

Virgin Muppets

Another ploy by Virgin to rip more money from their punters, when in fact it's them who've screwed up.

I can access my 1&1 server from a webproxy (over the Virgin Media network) and yet I cannot do so directly (on ports 25/80/110 etc).

Numpties have obviously killed something. Go figure.
