Vote now for the best sci-fi film never made


I remember that...

I was young and fell asleep listening to it but I still remember how it started.

Good but...

Hardwired was better, by Walter Jon Williams.




Not Fantasy, there is a difference. But saying that Strata could be on the list as it was about a Sci-Fi Discworld.

Nintendo confirms Wii 'successor'


Maybe not...

When Sony released the PS3 wasn't it being out sold by the PS2?

No, iPhone location tracking isn't harmless and here's why

Mobiles really do fry your brains: JAMA


How long has it been now?

10, 15, 20 years and all that the studies can find is there might be an effect and if there is an effect it's so small it's not worth worrying about. I think the stress of worrying about it would be more detrimental to your health!

Honeycomb on Phones

From everything I've read, Google don't want, for what ever reason, to have Honeycomb on normal hand-held phones. Once they release the source code there will be a custom ROM available the next day for jail broken phones.

Bits NOT Bytes

It looks like Malcolm "The Luddite" Turnbull has confused Bits with Bytes. The original plan was for 100Mbs then it was upgraded to 1000mbs when the NBN found out it wouldn't cost that much more.

Why would we Australians want 1000mbs? We don't know but isn't it good to future proof for when we do, seeing how it's not going to add that much more to the cost?
