Lords: Analogue radio must die


Umm, no?

FM transmitters transmit Megawatts of effective radiated power, they don't USE Megawatts of power. The actual power of a transmitter is far less than the transmit power due to aerial efficiencies. Either way, neither ERP or transmitter power equate to power consumption.

Is this the world's dirtiest PC?



If this had only been a few weeks earlier. We had several Dell PC's returned to us from a warehouse in France and they were absolutely caked in dust, inside and out. Warehouse environment + PC on floor + Dell PC = incredible amounts of dust. I'll have to keep a look out for any more we get now.

Theatre draws veil over naked Anna Friel



"the insider insisted: "This is a serious production and they don't want the naked scenes to be the only talking point.""

Well then don't have popular and rather sexy actress Anna Friel getting her kit off in one of your theatre productions then or that's exactly what you'll get dumbass.

Microsoft's Windows 7 price gamble opens door to Linux


We will see.....

The problem is that when people go into a store they want Windows because that is what almost everyone else has and it's what they know and what they have used at home and work. If it has linux on it they just think "what the heck is that?" and ignore it.

If they manage to get it on some big brand machines then they need to try and make sure it gets marketing behind it. The Linux distro makers obviously don't have anything like the money MS has but they could make sure a machine is sent out to reviewers (TV, printed and online), invite them around and explain the benefits and generally show it off. If they can get people interested and showing them off on a prime time gadget show and big online magazines then it could gain some momentum.

Windows 7 is a good OS and it will probably sell by the lorry load but I would be very happy to see Ubuntu or another distro make their case to the public.

Well, there goes the extra couple of % share it gained most likely ;)

Anyone thought to ask MS if they actually do have a server called Bada running Bing? Wouldn't surprise me in the least.
