Student suspended for posting random satire on YouTube

What's a title?

This is eerily similar to how I ended up "leaving" school back in '99.

Sex Party's down-under struggles with dominant Catholic priests

The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.

I really hope you're a troll...

Go Daddy CEO under fire for 'elephant snuff film'

A bunch of disgusting hypocritial cunts.

RE: @AC10:24

"MS IE may have market-share, but it's never been what I would consider "dominant"."

You wouldn't call a >90% share of the market for 6 years "dominant"? What would you call it?

Apple 'gay-cure' app severely slapped

"any thing that incites hate should be censored"

let's censor the bible and quran then.

if you don't think these books incite hatred you haven't read them.

"by someone who knows nothing about religion except what he or she reads in the tabloids"

or by someone who has actually studied what people believe in and what people have done to each other for not having the same views on imaginary friends...

Microsoft, Nokia, and MeeGo: Are they all doomed?

Robert Simpson
Gates Horns


I sincerely hope that MS aren't doomed, the more players in the market means more competition and better end products for us end users. I don't particularly like MS (not at all in fact) but less competition is never a good thing.

iPhone owners get walked through confessional

"those poor atheists"

I'm more concerned about the poor religious people who have no idea what they're missing outside the mental prison which religious belief imposes.

Put that in your papal chimney and smoke it.

"white balance tweak"

What does IT have to do with photograph manipulation? Besides the obvious fact that the task is done on a computer, we can't expect everybody who's ever touched one to know what they're doing with Photoshop.

US may disable all in-car mobile phones

War on terror?

Is that like the 'war on drugs'? Yeah, that's a real war too...

The 3G coverage picture that can't be published

Robert Simpson

who claimed they did?

i think the point here is that a lot more people are using the 3G network, as opposed to just GSM. this is a question of carrier capacity, not "who invented mobile browsing?" we need to know which carriers have the best coverage (and thus network capacity) so we can make an informed decision based on facts as opposed to the network's marketing bullshit.

Can $100m a year keep Google on the iPhone?

Robert Simpson

quantity of applications

I don't understand why the quantity of applications on Windows is seen as a good thing, when you consider that 95%+ of them will never been seen by 99%+ of users, and most of them being copies of existing applications rebranded by another vendor, a lot of the time very badly implemented and if they're "free" they typically come with some difficult to remove adware (which if you even manage to remove it, cripples the app itself).

This is usually where somebody points out that Apple keep going on about the size of their app store, but what you need to remember here is that Apple are promoting it's growth to both users and developers, it doesn't matter that a lot of the applications are useless rubbish (fart apps anyone?), what does matter is that they're pushing developers to get creative and some outstanding apps are being produced and sold. What do we have on WinMo? The same old crap we had on Win95. The developers have lost interest in Windows Mobile.

The OS has to be modified to run on non-Apple hardware. This is what the whole dispute is over.

Apple is sorry (again) over MobileMe

Robert Simpson

all fine except...


Everything syncs fine for me. Only problem is that I can't actually send emails using Mail, it just keeps saying the server won't allow the message to be sent, which is a bit of a pain. I'm using OS10.4.11 just in case anyone is interested.
