Wacom Bamboo Fun S Pen and Touch


Were you living under a rock 3 years ago when the Bamboo Pen&Touch originally came out?

Because this is basically the same thing.

BT accidentally chokes bandwidth to 'superfast' customers


BT are twats...

...utter twats.They have the worst broadband service I've ever experienced. I'd have been overjoyed at 2mb/s when I used them - the best I ever got was 140kb/s... and this was on their "up to 8meg" service.

Leicester City councillors eye up iPad to save £90k a year



Couldn't they just fire another 50 people and make do with paper?

Employers call for end to Mickey Mouse degrees


re : Tuition Fees

They have A* grade at A-level now!? Christ the education system's getting bad.

Microsoft made a phone, and I hate it already



Christ! you bought one of those?

Women face 'glass cliff' after breaking glass ceiling



you ever read a feminist journal? If a man penned that crap it'd be called mysogenistic!

Intel used rebates to freeze out AMD, EC docs show

Thumb Down

Greedy EU

Where does the money go when companies are fined this much? I'm guessing EU staff all get bonuses?

Orange issues Heroic update



Mine's sat on my desk, boxed and ready to go back. T-mobile really shit up on this one.

T-Mobile's G2 denied the update Touch


Mine's gone back

T-mobile denied me the update, the phone's unusable. I can't charge the thing twice a day, and I'm damned if I'm turning off mobile data and wi-fi... what's the point of the phone if I have to do that? Why they didn't just put a faster processor and better battery in this thing, or wait until it was ready before releasing it, I don't know.

Government stamp of approval for fake weed


Someone's not up on their weed-economics

'If you're paying 20 quid for 3 grams you're being ripped off, badly. £25 should buy you half an ounce (14 grams) of resin and at least a quarter (7 grams) of grass these days.'

... yeah for really shitting block maybe, decent skunk is gonna set you back £25 on the 1/8.

Spice is fucking minging. Tastes like burning fish with some plastic in there for good measure.

How about we stop banning harmless substances and let people exercise choice? I don't ban fatty foods or lambast the fat (and believe me, I fucking hate those pie-scoffing fatties)... so leave the smokers alone, it's OUR choice, not yours.

Microsoft's online Office variant preps for business


Office 2007 is shite

what's with the fucking toolbars!? I had to get third party software to make it the same as 2003, because I spent over 20 minutes looking for a way to remove page-breaks.

Advice to the developers at Redmont... if it ain't broke... don't fix it!!!

Wacky Jacqui spanked by husband


Jaquie smith should get fired

Not with reference specifically to this; she's fucked up so many times in the past anyway. She's a complete fucking moron.

Boffin builds DIY solar cell from doughnuts and tea


That pisses on Scientific Eye!

K, so I went to school as we all do; science bored the living shit out of me... largely because it wasn't very interesting. Oh why could they not have taught us like this guy? He makes it interesting and compelling - keep it up dude, you're a genius!

Parcelforce website cold-shoulders Linux lovers


Oh no! End of the world stuff,,,

Considering that the mass-market choice of browser is STILL IE6 - I don't see that this is an issue? Certainly most of my customers don't even care about FireFox on PC, so for 1% of the market, they care even less.

Aussie air zealot savages prêt-à-porter stealth fighter



You want a safer world, don't sell these planes to Israel or any other country in the far-east... you're just asking for trouble.

Internet to Obama: 'Pass the joint'


If the US Gov't response is as shit as the UK one...

... then they'll just completely ignore the results of these polls...

Every petition that's made its way onto that board has been ignored. Jedi isn't a religion, Ghanja isn't legal and ministers haven't had to give up their "John Lewis list".

You'd be better off writing your request on a piece of toilet paper, wiping your arse on it, then flinging it over a rainbow.



You're giving us a bad name man...

To everyone citing Rob as an example to maintain this pointless prohibition, I happily pull over £40k a year developing software - I don't get high all the time, certainly not at work, but it helps destress me when I get home.

It's quite possible to maintain a healthy lifestyle and contribute to society while enjoying a controlled substance, but it comes down to your own mind-set... some people go crazy and schizophrenic (though arguably, it's just catalysed what's already in their mind), most people are fine.

So, until you all stop drinking alcohol (which is pretty bad for you), please keep your judgement of me and others like me, to yourself.

Prison warders told to can 'hurtful' language



Look, mental health issues or not... if someone's in jail because they can't figure out not to cut someone up, they're fucking lucky to be alive at all and not dead as a result of their crimes. Frankly I don't give a fuck what "hurtful language" they're subjected to in prison, as it was likely their "hurtful behaviour" that put them their in the first place.

There's gold in green: profiting from climate change


It's all bollocks

It's just another myth that we're fed and told to believe. The current agenda is causing little children to think that it's true, and lecture us based on some shit they saw on Blue Peter.

I'm glad that there are at least some scientific minds that don't subscribe to this shit. It won't have any effect on the way things are going though; the UK gov't method of making money through tax and stealth tax has still left a blackhole in the treasury... without more bullshit taxation, they'll never plug that gap and has there ever been such a worthy vehical for bullshit tax than Climate Change?

US WMD report: Dirty bombs, chem weapons are bunk


Here's an idea...

How about this...

America, stop fucking off the rest of the world. Make some friends instead of enemies.

There. Problem solved.

India draws up own Google Earth plan


Damn right they get criticised!

India is a pretty grim and skanky place, impoverished and dirty. I can understand that they don't want to be left out of space-race 2.0, but ffs! They need to get some basic sanitation, a welfare state and clean up their skanky cities before they go pollute space!

Apple opens Macbook front in iPhone jailbreak war


Apple are cunts

Complete cunts. Wake up people!

Led Zeppelin plan Plant-free tour

Paris Hilton

They tried this before...

Jimmy Page played with the Black Crowes, and it was shit. Robert Plant's voice IS Led Zeppelin... the band touring without him isn't the real thing.

Hasn't Jimmy Page made enough fucking money from the last tour? Give it a rest guys!

Paris, because even she knows when to call it a day.

Microsoft faces second 'black screen' lawsuit


Like a wasp complaining when it gets stung

Fuck off China! Until you curtail the waves of piracy that emanate from your country, you have no right to make demands of legitimate businesses.

UK.gov says: Regulate the internet



If they want people to stop committing suicide, maybe they should address the reasons why and not try to remove all instructions. It's counter productive, like the fucking morons in schools that don't want kids knowing about contraception.

Apple pulls posted pulled iPhone modem app

Jobs Horns

no use bitching now

Look, you guys still bought iPhones despite the ludicrous pricing and possibly illegal distribution restrictions... if you had any sense you would've voted with your feet and not bought one until Apple conceded and released the phone in a normal way.

I have a Tmobile contract which is considerably better value than the stupid iphone one, and I can happily use my phone as a modem... oh BTW, my fair use policy is 3.5gb a month.
