The OCZ Revo drive which has been out for ages now has a IO of 75000 (way better than 44000) and a read of 540MB/s with write of 530MB/s??? Where are their PR department getting this stuff from 'fastest', 'biggest', 'hardest' etc etc try checking your facts first for gods sake...

Microsoft offers EU choice on Windows browsers

Steven 23
WTF?

Erm...

I like the idea, but:

"Once a browser is picked, an install link will connect the user to the browser manufacturer's site to begin download, Microsoft said."

Isn't that link useless unless you have a browser installed in the first place???

Bigger Problem

All our companys O2 mobiles as well as BT landlines are playing up. 50% of the time when you ring one it says "this number does not exist or is unrecognised, goodbye"... fantastic.

Hypocrit 2.0

"The public perception of mobile broadband is often of a service that is comparable in speed and stability to fixed-line broadband, which simply isn't the case – and won't be for the foreseeable future."

Yet that's exactly what we advertise it as... feckwits.

Unlock your iPhone, miss your messages

@What about officially unlocked phones?

"users have reported that an unlocked iPhone on the official network does work, so it seems it's routing to the unsupported network that causes the problem rather than the unlocking process itself"

Hydrogen-powered two-seater car unveiled

Steven 23
Thumb Down

Please tell me I read that wrong...

"Instead of selling the RUC outright, Riversimple plans to lease out the car over a 20-year period for around £200 ($327/€236) per month – a price that will include the cost of the hydrogen."

Thats £48000 by my calculation? And a 20 year contract? Thats worse than the iPhone!
