BlackBerry blog hacked with riot-related threats


Writing etiquette

Love the way their intelligence shines through with a "ps" to reinforce the threat.

Why not add "pps - got some iphones going cheap, you interested?"

iPhone 4: the best built smartphone...


Apples and oranges

Er, anyone notice how iphone's are seperated yet the HTC/BB/Other models are lumped into one thus distorting the reality field? I'm sure if you combine the iphones together the results and weight it against the number of models say that there is a relative consitency across all manufacturers over failure rates.

The link to the report shows an interesting note about not including Apple fixes.

Logica salvages gov contracts


How it could save money?

Its great saying UKGOV could save money using opensource but have you tried telling (let alone training) the end user they have to use something completely different? The mindset in GOV is rather slow in accepting change.

New Reg comments system ready to launch



Are you sure about announcing this on April 1st?

Vodafone struggles to get iPhones out


Like the queues for bread and milk

The thought of that Titanic scene (you know the one) re-created in the human body is amusing me now :-)

Secondary pupils get free iPhones in edu-app trials


There's a book for that

Lets see: one decent science book, a biro and a paper diary. Nope, can't see why an iphone is cost effective and has any beneficial value in education apart from looking at youtube whilst in class.

In a way I feel sorry for the kids who are now a target of muggers. Guess someone didn't think of that aspect in the proposal.

Web firms seek Royal Mail rivals with GSOH for delivery fling


@Beyond a joke

Anonymous Coward - are you in the same world as I am? Everybody wants to go to lunch at that time so there is minimal coverage to provide a service regardless of what the service is.:Asda, Tesco, The Post Office and the worst of the lot: the banks. Their "available hours" are not in line with the real world are they and something we mindlessly tolerate.

Unfortunately the real world businesses won't employ more staff because they cost money.
