Well this is awkward. As Microsoft was bragging about Office at Build, Office 365 went down


Office 365ish

or Office 360 if you are lucky

Mozilla's trying on seven hot new spring/summer logo looks


They all have a secondary school project feel to them.

I think JCB for the first one, Sky pause/play button on my HD box for the third.

The last one made me think of Marble Madness and The Sentinel on the C64.

All a bit crappy but if your browser is crap then does it really matter?

Didn't see that coming.

I'll risk the one I don't know thanks.

'Thundering mechanical behemoth' walker mech to attack Leicester today


"it will not stop"

Imagine being pursued by this mechanical terror, you could forward roll (kiddy style) your way out of trouble having a five minute breather between every 20 rolls.



Restructure and adapt. Listening is a good starting point.

It is high time that Steve 'The Gurning Gibbon' Ballmer stepped down, if he loves MS he would.

Dead STEVE JOBS was a CROOK – judge

Samsung isn't alone: HTC profits take a huge dive


old, crappy and happy

My Blackberry Bold still does the job for me - great battery life, good reception, camera okay, text based angry birds challenging.

I think about all the money I have saved not getting caught up in the 'must have' and 'upgrade' loop and smile.

BBC abandons 3D TV, cites 'disappointing' results


Kiddies book

When I am reading to my 2 year old and it happens to be a pop up book I think of my 3D tv.

I purchased my tv for 2d performance, it just happens to have 3d built-in.

Microsoft talks up devices, Windows 8.1 at developer shindig


Nice pic Steve

Yet more proof that you'll be hard pushed to find a close up still of Steve Ballmer where he does not look a complete twat.

I told you I'd be back: Arnie set for another career revival



"I need your cardigan, your slippers and your motability scooter." Oh and your corset.

Loved the T1 and T2 but it should have stopped there.

Sony sucker-punches Xbox on price, specs, DRM-free gaming


"a slight catch"

I can live with the "slight catch" thank you very much, a bit nitpicky if you ask me.

I can sense the grinding cogs of the Microsoft backtracking machine slowly coming to life.

Microsoft announces $499 price tag, new games for Xbox One


MS - a stumbling drunk

I have owned every Xbox and Playstation ever released at one time or other but I cannot see myself purchasing the new Xbox. Who is making the decisions at MS? They stumble from one stupid decision to another like a pissed up old fart in the street, Windows, Office and now this - why has nobody been sacked? Why is that fist pumping idiot still in charge?

Sony can really benefit from all this but history tells us that is unlikely, I hope I am wrong.

I hope MS 'listen to their customers' and make changes to make the Xbox one an attractive option, will stick with my PC and Steam for now.

YES, Xbox One DOES need internet, DOES restrict game trading


A perfect opportunity for Sony ......

.... watch them blow it big style.

Bit of an ugly mother, looks like a VCR from the 80's.

First, the bad news: EA bags Star Wars games rights


I would settle for a new 'Tie Fighter' game, with today's computing power it could be awesome.

EA please omit DRM, micro-transactions, DLCing the shit out it and always connected requirement and you have a winner.

Fraudster gets ten years after selling fake 'ionic charge' bomb detectors


The test

He should be placed in a room with 10 boxes of which 9 are booby trapped to kill instantly on opening. He should then be asked to identify the safe box and open it using his amazing gadget.

If he can do it 3 times then let him go, seems fair.

If he refuses he should have a grenade shoved up his arse, minus the pin, and booted down some stairs.

Re: Good times ahead

My brother recently showed a friend BF3 on his pc and was gobsmacked as he had been playing on PS3, he immediately ordered a gaming pc. I will ask him why he bought a PC for gaming.

It's JUST possible, but Apple MIGHT not make an iWatch in 2013



I must admit I am getting a little tired of the i(Device) naming convention, I know it's Apple but for me it's getting a tad cheesy.

Off for an iDump.
