The Pain of BB

Have a 9860 phone for work biggest pile of poo going, no one in the office likes them as they randomly dial people or hang up mid conversation as it registers your ear touching the screen. Had a first gen bold which was OK but never BB again plz.

Why is solid-state storage so flimsy?

Philip Bune

Recall the Seagate 330mb drives 1m x 50cm x 30cm with a belt drive and external PSU that were on the video equipment I used to work on, 3 huge copper platters the size of a serving tray. what times.

Hands on with the RIM/Vodafone BlackBerry Storm

Philip Bune
Dead Vulture

Bad Move by Rim

The lack of Wi-Fi is one of the biggest mistakes that Rim could do, all of the competition has it as standard nowadays so the we couldnt fit it in excuse is just lame.

Even the egotistical Apple was not fool hardy enough to miss that one even though its phone is aimed at the narcisus brigade.

I like the look of the phone but no wi-fi makes it less of an option as that would of allowed for easier access to emils & documents while out of the office.

The X1 looks like a brick & I tried the apple :(

Form & Function is what people are looking for.

BlackBerry Storm to blow in next week - minus Wi-Fi

Philip Bune


Well that's a bit of a bugger, I was planning on getting one of the Storms to replace my aged brick.

Looks like I will be holding off for a while until that option is available as it was a key feature I wanted.

Filesharing teen gets damages reduced in ignorance claim

Philip Bune

Over the top

$200 per song what are they made of solid gold or something, talk about over estimating the worth of something.

Down with the Music industry imo, its all sounding the same nowadays.

Doctors: Third babies are the same as patio heaters

King Arthur was English 'propaganda', French claim

Philip Bune

French what more needs to be said

Those darn Frencies are at it again, Just because they are cultural inept bunch they feel teh need to try & lambaste this fine country's heritage.

Invade France again we could do with a few flags to put our red cross of St George onto. they have loads of those white flags they are always waving.

Why did the little ### have a PSP at school in the first place.

Hasbro fires off legal letters over Scrabulous

Philip Bune
Dead Vulture

Hate em

When Hasbro bought the rights back for the game, it resulted in places Like Atari.Play having to remove a large swathe of popular stuff, Scrabble/Boggle being one of them.

Many a free scrabble/boggle player was left homeless after that & there has never been a suitable alternative.

Even Hasbro said they would not be doing on-line versions.

Sickening to kill those games off from other sites

Apple opens up iPhone to app developers

Philip Bune

They got the hint

Nice to see S.Jobs finally got the hint that a locked item will get hacked regardless of what Apple says.

Just as long as they don't get tips from Sony on how to utilize protection they should be OK.

Britney's wares exposed online

Philip Bune

Abandon all hope

Bittiny spares music on the pirate scene, whatever next, her singing in tune & refusing Drink, Drugs & Junk Food.

Any self respecting Pirate would run a mile rather than allow their bandwidth to be used to proliferate such vile bilge from a washed up minger.

Must be the record company's attempt to drum up some trade & get back the money they wasted before they dump her too.

After months of denial, Microsoft cops to IE vulnerability

Philip Bune
Gates Horns

M$ & IE

With the open source browsers there are numerous people working on bug fixes so they get fixed faster. With IE though it is all insular & any bugs are slow to be fixed. "Firefox, Opera, Safari, Sea Monkey, Netscape" a multitude of alternatives if you are willing to take the time to try them.

I think the majority are still IE users only due to the fact it comes pre installed with all M$ installed PC's. They managed to kill off Netscape in the 90's by dominating the market with this business method & it has taken a long time for the third party players to break the grip of IE.

I use Firefox as I prefer how it operates not because of the security.

Apple sued over i-Bricks

Philip Bune

A Way Out

Apple could always offer the flash the brick back to factory defaults option for a small charge. Then these people who hacked their phones (Voiding Warranty) would at least be able to have an operational phone back. Otherwise the bucket of water & claim on the insurance claiming the toddler dropped it in the toilet might work lol.

Locking to a network is a pain we in the EU do not really have to worry about.

rip off

Well it goes to prove that the great British Rip off is still alive & well, if it is cheaper for a company to purchase items in Hong Kong & then ship them to the UK & still make a profit., then it proves that our prices are inflated well above the manufacture & acceptable margins for profit.

Hong Kong has a much higher cost of living so in theory there goods should cost more.
