Orange mobile broadband takes six-day break


@richard tanswell

"Since the French took over, the company has really gone down in my estimation."

Have you not noticed yet that the crap service you get from companies in England has nothing to do with the French (or other nations, or immigrants) and everything to do with dumb asses not having the balls to take a stand and stop paying for the crap?

Vendor pitches handheld phone-data extractor


I'd think

I'd think it's kinky if my girlfriend was spying on me... especially if she had lots of hi-tech spy gear as well.

@Tom Welsh

This was a middle aged woman who posed as a juvenile in order to cause distress to a child. That's not right and she deserves to be punished.

"Words may be very hurtful, but we all have to learn to put up with criticism, mockery, and even vicious taunts. The alternative would be far worse."

You walk up to my kid and start calling them filth and I think it's you who'll be learning a lesson.

They need an extra pair of hands to undo and tie up their corset.

"Atheists merely apply the same standard of evidence to statements ..."

For a person to do that they must believe in the evidence and either their own or another's ability to correctly deduce a result from that evidence.



"Or are catholics now not to take the bible as literal Truth?"

The official Catholic line on the Bible: "We should not expect to find in Scripture full scientific accuracy or complete historical precision".

Some Christians believe in a literal interpretation. Catholics don't (or shouldn't). Catholic schools teach evolution, they also teach respect for other people's beliefs (which includes atheist beliefs).

Boris Johnson bans boozing on London transport


Drink driving

"Drunks should be put back where they belong, behind the wheel of a car."

summer on the tube: bring water

They (used to) encourage passengers to carry water when traveling on the antiquated tube during summer. They can't know if your water bottle contains alcohol without detaining you and testing.

Now there's another excuse to detain people without reasonable cause. "They woz on public transport, they looked drunk init, they woz drinking something, so we shot them".

But this is all for our own good, what really gets me annoyed is that I imagine foreigners who don't have to pay the UK TV license might be able to watch the BBC over the internet.

@Chad H

"But how will those of us who need to see the screen do things?"

You lot will have to make do with the touch screen excuse for a keyboard. My solution keeps both camps happy - those that like to look at the screen and those that like physical button press. I reckon the iPhone upgrade will be a revolution that doesn't leave anyone feeling disenfranchised.

"Read the bible: Judges, chapter 13 to 16."

That's a good hair cut reference and I can see how, on balance, it might cause someone to call the emergency services rather than sit struggling with the theological interpretation when their daughter's hair's being eaten by a cabbage patch doll.
