Windows 7 gets built in XP mode


OS9 Classic mode..

..or just like parralells in OSX.

I find it funny that to make any new OS sellable (OS X/Win7) needs XP compatibility.

Germany approves strengthened child abuse law


I've seen this before..

While I don't really see this as a way to impose improper censorship on the Germans, and in actual fact I think this is a good idea...

However...you don't have to look too far back in Germany's history to find an example of law being abused to take more power than originally intended...

3'3" Oh Oh

That puts me at exactly double the required height...

So to be fair to the rest of the world, I should probably kill myself...

Strange bit of maths..

"ranging from the merely adequate - such as Logitech's Pure-Fi Anywhere - to the rather good - such as Intempo's InSession."

You say this...even though the former was rated 5% higher than the latter in your testing?

80% > 75% ?

Google's email service goes down


Isn't google services falling offline one of the harbingers of the apocolypse?

Well...isn't it?

Windows 7 'upgrade' doesn't mark XP spot

Gates Halo


If you can upgrade from XP to Vista, and Vista to 7, and with 7 being basically Vista under the hood..surely it should be trivial for them to allow XP users to do a straight upgrade?

Palm's new OS finds the sweetest spot



They should have just stuck BeOS on there.

US teen clocks up 14,528 text messages

IT Angle

Divided by 2

Assuming that for every text she sent she got a reply, and taking into account she receives FW:FW:FW:FW:FW:FW: LOL texts, lets take her down to 7000 outgoing texts.

Which works out at 233 per day. (14 per waking hour (16))

Is that really a newsworthy number? December, school holidays, she was probably using her phone like an IM client....could easily fire through 50 in a couple of bored hours..

MobileMe wreaks wipey revenge on freetards


This happened to me

For all those saying that people should no better:

When you get an iphone and sign up for the free trial, at no point are you made aware that EVERY TIME YOU ADD A CONTACT TO YOUR PHONE it is added to 'MobileMe' contacts, not the contacts on the handset.

When I cancelled my mobileme account, I was under the impression that mobileme was syncing a COPY of my contacts back to the server, not that I was looking at my mobileme account every time I went to make a call.

I can guarentee you that if you close an O2 Bluebook account that your contacts don't dissapear off your phone.

I've only shagged two blokes, insists Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton

Wasn't there another sex tape of hers...

...there was another tape around online wasn't there? Not as graphic, but naked in bed.

So, 100% of her sexual evenings ended up on the internet?

New alliance tunes into the 'net


I notice...

..that there's a distinctly European accent to the group. A welcome voice on the Internet.
