Sega squirts urinal game console onto shop shelves

I know better

It had better be good otherwise it's going down the pan. I wonder whether there'll be a slashing game soon?

iPhone 4S owners love Siri, hate the battery life

I know better


If you use the Siri feature where you can put the phone to your ear to activate Siri then what difference is it to taking a call?

Punctured Google+ leaks bored users

I know better

I like Google+, mostly because I hate Facebook, most because I hate the name Facebook. Irrational, well, maybe.

The problem is that I can't be bothered to do social media and I don't want to share my life with world+dog. So although Google+ is my platform of choice, I have nothing to say that I want others to know about and I doubt that others feel strongly enough to want me to contribute!

Mail Online is broken

I know better

Didn't even notice! I only need to read the front page and I'm already out the door pitchfork in hand.

Gov to spread mobile masts to remote corners of Blighty

I know better
Thumb Up

OK, bit expensive but could kick start some decent mobile start ups and give extra coverage for tourists, local business and consumers alike.

Hackers break SSL encryption used by millions of sites

I know better


You're lucky, I've been living with mobile broadband in a rural area for over a year! Paris, because I can't see an icon of Scarlett anywhere...

Agreed but

... if the attacker can't get any of the information (session cookie etc) from your session then all the attacker can really do is have a parallel session with their own session cookie.

I know better


Would be nice to be able to sandbox a tab on your browser so that the site you're using can't be shared with another tab. No session information, cookies or anything. Like a private browsing session for a single tab. That would solve it? You'd just start a "secure" tab, go to PayPal, pay then logout out and close the tab. The other tabs would be oblivious and wouldn't be able to share any data.

Sweden rolls out invisible infrared tank

Other applications

Can this be used for other applications? Like sneaking past my manager on Friday afternoons?

London Philharmonic to give videogame music concert

I know better

Forget the children, what about Rob Hubbard?

Hello, Crazy Comets, Monty on the Run. Where's Hubbard's entries?

Sony preps Luke Skywalker-style digital binoculars

Really want. Likely to buy a £50 old school version from eBay though...

Who'd buy a fake battery?

I know better

Apple batteries

My 2008 MBP's battery is dying slowly and it hurts me to low 100 quid on a genuine item. Then again, 20-30 quid on some random copy is likely going to end up breaking itself or worse the laptop itself. Amazon(used to be able to trust them but since the marketplace was opened up it's full of tat now) and eBay are full of knock offs.

Rock and a hard place!

Cambridge IT guy 'was the Spanish Guy Fawkes', say cops

I know better

Hell of a scrabble score...

Did this guy get his name encrypted by deed poll?

Name that donkey: Barbarella battles Bathsheba

Is it too late to add one?

I like Bonkey the Donkey...

O2 struggles for breath in widespread outages

I know better

So what's new?

Like I can get any data services at the best of times with O2 in London...

O2 ups 3G speeds by 30%

I know better

Yeah right.

Total b******cks. I live and work in the M25. I have a big round non-3G logo in my Iphone status indicating I'm getting dial-up speeds. In fact the more I look at it, the more it looks like a big fat zero which is way too close to reality for me to laugh.

Yes, yes but...

What does it taste like?

Researchers rip iPad apart to reveal Apple's profits

I know better
Gates Horns

What the....?

How can Bill Gates lecture anyone about pricing when he rolls out a new version of office every few years with the same old crap and a few more buttons tacked on with a subtle colour change thrown in for good measure?

Yes,the iPad is expensive. So are BMWs. Yes I'm a (trying to be realistic) fan boy. No I can't afford one! :-(

iPad launch raises awareness, boosts disinterest

I know better

Missing the point of the iPad

This iPad is *perfect* (OK, it needs a web cam) for my parents or my wife who just wants to surf *or* play a game *or* do something else. They can't cope with the concept of switching between apps. And as for lack of tweakability, BRILLIANT! That means as near as zero support will be required from me. Yes it's a closed platform but for them it does the job perfectly. For the tinfoil-hat brigade and the freetards there'll be android equivalents that you can tweak and ruin to your hearts content. Best of luck with that!

BTW, I'll still be using my beat up eee....

Jobs Halo


In other news, Moses comes back from the dead to sue a Chinese company for patent infringement on his device from "thousands of years ago". "It's the bloody same!" an unnamed source quoted the rehabilitated Moses.

Europe welcomes Dell's Mac Mini Zino HD

I know better

Major fail for the base version!

Intel GMA950? How is that going to power anything!? No use whatsoever as a media centre. The HD version looks nice but I'm still buying a mac mini for home theatre duties...
