Tiscali titsup fears grow


Worst company ever.

Easily the worst broadband provider I've ever used, a nightmare, to cancel, then they kept charging me, and then wouldn't acknowledge the full amount they'd overcharged me by. Ended up getting posted a cheque for less than a fiver.

My thoughts will go out to anyone losing their jobs, but what a useless company.

Minister trashes ex-spook chief's liberty warning



Is he really being tipped to be the new Home Secretary, the blokes clueless! I can't stand watching him on Question Time, he seems to be totally devoid of independent thought, and all he can do is parrot the party line. I can't think of anyone in the government more annoying or useless, and that's saying something!

Obama inaugurates YouTube-side chats


Tight bastard

Tiscali - robbed me too!

I also left Tiscali for Sky, they carried on billing me, I've asked them for it back, and managed to get a cheque for about £4 even though they'd charged me for a whole month.

Dabs.com courier goes titsup


Dabs aren't that bad!

I used to use Dabs but wanted to start using ebuyer, but then they asked me for a copy of my passport and proof of address before they'd sell me anything so I'm back to using Dabs!

I saw that!

I was watching that and thought it was an El Reg cap, but the picture changed to quickly for me to check! Glad someone found a shot of it! :)

Microsoft denies Lite-On Blu-ray rumour


I'm inclined to belive 'em...

I think they're not going to bother with Blu-Ray, removable media's fastly becoming a redundant format. They'll be waiting till they can provide HD content over Xbox Live.

Is that 7 years bad luck, or just time differences... :D

EDF Energy?

Would that be the same EDF Energy that Gordon Brown's brother Andrew is the Head of Media Relations for?
