Ubisoft: 'Vast majority of PC gamers are PIRATES'


Re: DRM fault's

"if you have a ton more IPs posting to your leaderboard then you have receipts of sale, what does that tell you?"

It tells you people have laptops, tablets and mobile phones that don't stay in the same place. So it tells you nothing!

Ten... Core i5 laptops


ThinkPad "with the best keyboard you'll find on any notebook"

How can it be "the best keyboard you will find on any notebook" when the Left Ctrl button is in the wrong place.

I hate laptop manufactures who feel they need to place the "Fn" button where the "Ctrl" button belongs, it makes touch typing impossible.

Mozilla reaches for almost perfect 10 with latest Firefox 4 beta

Thumb Up

Much Improved

The Firefox 4 Beta is good, I have been using it for about a month now and wouldn't go back.

It even works better on my 6 year old work PC.

It is not perfect but better than older iterations.

Kiss frontman gives file-sharers tongue-lashing

@ Epic fail


So what you are saying is people no longer have to buy an album just to get the one good song.

Sounds like musicians should get off their asses and make decent albums if they want to make more money from the digital age. Not just flog 11 crap song with each good song and expect people to pay for it.

Bollywood 'recruits DDoS hired guns to fight movie pirates'



Maybe this is the reason the Film industry think they are losing loads of money to pirating.

They think the millions of requests are people who are not paying for their film.

Osborne plucks strange fruit from the loon tree

Thumb Down

Bad Idea

This would mean it would be completely impossible (presently very difficult) for the common man to ever become a minister.

Cinema chain bans laptops, tablets


A little more though maybe

I work in London so have no car, I travel to work by train. Therefore have to carry my Laptop on me when I take it home from work, some times I stop off at the cinema on the way home.

My suggestion is maybe you didn't think for quite long enough.

Energizer bunny hits iPhone, BlackBerry - wirelessly



How are you supposed to use the phone whilst it is charging?

Hold the phone and the matt to you face?

I can see a product like this being useful in a kitchen environment, where you could place the electronic equipment on a work surface without the wires. But I cannot see one advantage to using it with mobile phones.

Firefox 4 beta 2 preaches tabs-on-top love to fanbois


@Yes it starts fast

"I don't know why anyone complains about the current startup speed of firefox,"

I have been a Firefox fan for a long time, but on my laptop(admittedly 5 years old) it can take a minute or more to start, this is no acceptable.

Chrome starts in about 3 seconds and uses less resources (no I don't have millions of extensions, just NoScripts and Adblock Plus.

Firefox need to sort out the bloat and stop mucking around with the UI, I don't want them to make it look like browsers that are faster than it. I want it to work faster then the other browsers. I fear they lost their way some time ago though.

PARIS skins up with Rizlas and dope


Where is the ..,

Double sided sticky tape?

'World's largest' airship inflated in colossal Alabama cowshed


Sounds like a fair idea

I would also think using Battery power would be another way to solve this problem, chuck some light weight solar energy collecting material on top (I know this kind of thing doesn't exist yet) and then there would be no need for batteries as long as your above the clouds.

How a Tory gov will be the most tech-savvy in history


Your stats are a little out

Just so you know there are over 61 million people in the UK

Over 46 million are registered to vote, based of government statistics.


Ofcom lays out £400m plans for 2010



Dollars, I am guessing if you are being taxed in Dollars you are not contributing at all to the Olympic tax.

Drought effect on rainforests is negligible


Shame on them

Shame on the World Wrestling Federation for changing from their original goal, of wanting grown men to hug each other.

Good to know

Good to know, Scientists are advancing science and using there grants productively.

Oh wait there not

Honda goes NUTs for future micro-car


The title is required, and must contain abcd and/or 1234.

I would get rid of a steering system altogether and just place WSAD keys in front and space for handbrake

Than anyone who's played a computer driving game will be able to transfer there skills to driving a car.

Pointless concept car though, I though they were supposed to push the boundary's not just show how little imagination the car companies had.

'Alien spies live among us' says Bulgarian gov space boffin



If they are so worried about the environment being damaged why do they destroy perfectly good crops to communicate? Do they use a plank and a piece of rope as well?

I for one welcome are Alien overlords who have obviously decided against further crop circle for communication, but have infiltrated the Bulgaria Space agency to get there Voices heard.

US Air Force orders 2200 Sony PS3s



Some one had better tell them the new slim line models can't use linux.

Collisions at LHC! Tevatron record to be broken soon?


Portal Opening

I hope the Portal opens to parallel worlds like in sliders.

I for one welcome, are invading neighbours from a parallel universe.

Combat games disrespect war laws, report claims


Get a real job

How do these people get paid to do these studies?

I think some one should tell them they are just games and therefore have no need to recreate real life at all. What's next saying that we don't know if Aliens will be good or bad so we shouldn't make games where we can shoot them.

Honesty, I can understand what goes through the minds of people who think that video games should be compared to the real world.

MS store staff in spontaneous electric boogie


Oh the Horror

I skipped to the middle of the video and watched for 3 seconds.

If I walked into a store and that happened I would never enter the store again, and would defiantly not purchase any thing from it.

Only Willy Wonker would get his staff to do something so obviously forced and off putting.

The blog is just as bad, if this isn't someone being paid by Redmond to write it, I would suggest they see a psychiatrist.

Europe welcomes Dell's Mac Mini Zino HD


Wait a second!

The Price of a High end model, is well into the £800 range, and it only comes with 2.1 channel sound.

Sounds like a great product, until you see the price of a model that's fit for purpose.

3M shows 9in naked-eye 3D display



What is with the obsession with showing 2D photos of 3D displays, it doesn't help show off the tech, it just hurts my eyes.
