Hey dumbo, Facebook isn't sharing telephone numbers


Your not reading the article properly

are you looking at it correctly..???? It takes ALL contacts off YOUR phone, and uploads them to facebook. without asking permission.

This is taken from using it on my android


They take Numbers off your Phone without asking

I've read a number of comments here incorrectly thinking this is about adding Phone numbers your contacts on facebook have loaded onto facebook. This is about Facebook taking all of your phone contacts and uploading them to their servers.

BBC Trust moots new licence laws to cope with net



Come to Southern Ireland. We don't pay no UK license fee, and we can get BBC over the air. (in most parts of country)(though most of us get it Via NTL or Sky which we pay for. )

Though you will have to pay for the absolute bol-OX that our beloved national broadcaster decides to put on air.(they only have a small population to pay their license god bless!) Oh and theres no access to i-player either.

El Reg decimates English language


Surely all the words in the english language

are made up!!.

or did someone suddenly someday in the past .... etc.. etc..

i believe it was William shakespeare who just made up half* of the english language in his plays.

in fact heres a quote "The English language owes a great debt to Shakespeare. He invented over 1700 of our common words by changing nouns into verbs, changing verbs into adjectives, connecting words never before used together, adding prefixes and suffixes, and devising words wholly original"

from http://shakespeare.about.com/library/weekly/aa042400a.htm which contains a list of words.

imagine if someone decided then to disallow these words into common usage!.

*used as accurately as decimate

Official: Powerpoint bad for brains


Bad Powerpoint

Surely someone who reads a powerpoint presentation word for word instead of using Bullet points or Graphical representation of the subject is just really bad at communication/Powerpoint anyway. Theres nothing new there.
