What a line - thanks for that, you owe my employer a new keyboard!

What really annoys me about this game is the lack of a proper penalty system and safety cars. The older F1 games used to have this - why have things started to go backwards?

Other than those things, the game isn't all that bad. The issues will be patched.

At least they are getting upgrades..

I am still waiting on the three Desire Froyo upgrade - it better come soon or I am whacking on a generic HTC rom.

I am getting fed up of waiting - it makes you wonder what surprises they have planned in their 'custom' upgrade that HTC have had to write them,

Those would be geo-location suggested results for the UK. May very well be different in the USA for example.

I welcome this decision, but more needs to be done.

Plenty of companies out there mislead customers everyday, especially with unlimited this, and unlimited that, often neglecting to point out FUP's - something which Mobile Networks are terrible for, for example.

It's about time there was a crack down on this kind of thing, they are pretty much lying to people.

A good website should ideally work, at least with reduced functionality without scripting enabled.

But alas, in the real world, this is often not the case.

It is one of those really awkward decisions that need to be taken during development, and sadly it is often cheaper to develop an application without the fall back for no scripting so this decision wins.

And buy it is exactly what they will do... sooner or later. Perhaps it won't be a 100% stake, but it will be substantial none the less. It is inevitable.

UK ICT classes killing kids' interest in tech

It is like all secondary education.. your not taught a subject or topic, your taught how to answer the questions that will be on the exam paper. And the teachers have a bloody good idea what questions will be on a paper, as they are rarely too different.

And having seen for many years what happens in a GCSE IT lesson, I am not surprised kids get bored.

eBay whacked with giant patent suit

Software patents, again, shouldn't be allowed.

All these patent theft claims and lawsuits lately are utterly ridiculous.

Surely the title for this article should in fact be "Child protection campaigners claim hollow victory over Facebook.. bitch"

As always, a few select up their own arse idiots trying to hold the country back.

Apple accuses HTC of iPhone tech theft (again)

The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.

Software patents shouldn't be allowed.

They are counter-productive if anything in addition to being totally stupid.
