Samsung Pixon M8800 8Mp cameraphone


RE: Just ordered...

The on screen pad isn't as annoying as the Tocco, and if you turn it sideways you get a full qwerty keyboard when typing :D

Thumb Up

It's a good phone

I tested this phone about 2 months ago and I must say I was impressed by the improvements over the Tocco (my actual phone), felt like a much better phone, there are improvements to the interface and the menu structures, handling of pictures etc and I have been dissatisfied with the Tocco ever since. I think it's a great phone and would recommend it!

RE: Morons

RE: SPEED KILLS, people. The evidence is irrefutable, you are a brain dead moron if you think anything else.8 people die a day on our roads.

So does alcohol, smoking, walking across the road in front of a bus, jumping off a bridge, eating too much fatty food etc. BAN IT ALL!

300 people a day die from smoking so shouldn't something be done about that first??

Google = umbrella corporation

DVLA: A licence to bill



I had one of these so called "fines" so I ignored it, got "debt collection agency" letters. Funnily enough the debt collection agency was registered at the same address as the parking ticket company...ignored that and that was ooooooo a year ago now?

They know what there doing can't be enforced that's why I never heard anything back but in most cases people pay up because there scared of the court action and debt collectors they threaten with.

Owner alleges iPhone 3G became red hot


Re: Oh really?

The signal of 3G fluctuates normally because the cell you are in gets smaller due to higher volumes of traffic, essentially the more traffic on the cell the smaller that cell gets. Either that or cars / lorrys in the right place can affect it and certainly weather

SIM modding kit offered to Brits


RE: What's the point????

Not everything is about the iPhone you know. This is more to do with the millions of handsets in the UK that are locked to a network.

eBay breaks bread with luxury goods firms


RE: Choice of phrase?

Think you hit the nail on the head....If ebay have to police this then "trade-it" / newspapers should police there for sale sections? Car boot sales should be watched? Market stalls which sell a HUGE amount of forged goods should be policed better?

How on earth these companies expect ebay to police forged goods I dont know? It's not as if the seller puts on the description that they are forged items and without them passing through ebays hands there is no way they can tell, unless they hire thousands of people to examine EVERY picture on ebay and verify it is a genuine item, and then the items without pictures....well of course they'll have to be posted to ebay to be checked

Ryanair begins screen-scraping lawsuit


RE: I'm impressed

Ryan Airs £1 bargain flights are £1 if you fly at the right times, plus TAX of course...Basically Expedia etc go through the whole system like you would and get the final price at the end.

Whilst they are getting RyanAir business they are obviously making money out of it, otherwise they wouldn't be doing it and according to the terms and conditions of using the site your not allowed to do that as it is for commercial profit, maybe they should reword the t&c's to say not to be used for commercial gain.

Global-warming scientist: It's worse than I thought

Paris Hilton

75 metres...

75 metres my a$$. This higher temperature is causing floating icebergs to melt, but wont make the ocean rise 75 metres.... In order to float, the iceberg displaces a volume of water that has a weight equal to that of the iceberg. Submarines use this principle to rise and sink in the water by changing their weight....

If all of the Antarctic ice melted (which it wont), sea levels around the world would rise approx 61 metres due to the amount of ice on land however were talking about the Arctic Ocean here which is all floating so you can shove your 75 metres

O2 misses iPhone targets


why does everyone care so much about 3G?

Why do you all say, when its got 3G it'll be so much better etc? It's not that great a technology it just allows you to surf the internet a bit faster and make video phone calls....

Does anyone seriously use the internet on their mobile (on the phone or through laptop) that much?? And if you do just buy a USB modem on a decent data tariff.

And well I cant think of anyone that actually makes video calls

Now RIAA says copying your own CDs is illegal


Think theres something missing here....

There must be something missing from this story...how on earth could the RIAA find out he ripped his CD to his computer? without A) illegally having a trojan or something on his computer and "spying" on him or B) Him sharing them.

Now I would personally say it was 99.9% B and therefore is just another normal file sharing lawsuit

Old Sony console outsold PS3 in US last month
