As you stare at the dead British Airways website, remember the hundreds of tech staff it laid off


The better the IT department the less it's noticed by the powers that be apart from the big negative number on the ballance sheet. Maybe we should just turn shit off now and again just to prove we are worth the money. Now that is f**ked up!

Inside our three-month effort to attend Apple's iPhone 7 launch party



I would suggest a nice sexy clickbait headline for every Apple announcement/launch etc.

Pains us to run an Apple article without the words 'fined', 'guilty' or 'on fire' in it, but here we are



So you can't charge and listen to music at the same time unless you are using wireless headphones and making them go flat.....but at least you can play Flappy Mario

I think you are confusing trains with planes. Train tickets don't have times on you get a separate ticket for your seat reservation. Your ticket is still valid for travel

Clara dies

It was obvious Clara would be back. The way the BBC is with keeping everything hush hush they were far to eager to tell anyone who would listen "Clara Dies in this one"

So. Farewell then Betamax. We always liked you better than VHS anyway

You should be able to lock your credit record so any credit check will be refused. Then when you do want and credit log on and unlock it! (All my idea and I will sue)

But i'm sure it wouldn't be beyond the imagination for FB to market a private version of WhatApp

3" Disk Joy

I heard back in the day that the main reason A.M.S went for 3" disks was he found a warehouse somewhere in china stacked to the rafters with them and got them very cheap. To be honest I think I was told that on my PCW8256 Engineer training day at Amstrad. Yep I think I still have the certificate somewhere!


Re: Even now, I still get..

There you go...

I can remember installing a third party network on them. I want to call it Amsnet but that could just be my old man memory playing crazy tricks on me

Appendix A is great!

Read Appendix A...or as like like to put it..how we made this shit up!

The only thing I think the copyright owners should take away from this is users are more than happy to pay if you give them what they want!

In the UK until NowTV arrived it was IMPOSSIBLE to watch Game of Thrones unless you had Sky TV...they even kept if off Virgin's Cable service by sticking it on Sky Atlantic. Guess what I didn't have to download this year! (Not that I ever did of course!)

iPlayer repeat fees threaten BBC earthquake


Is the solution not easy?

Surely if the BBC wants to cash in on all it's old content then let it. It can quite easily charge the rest of the world to access content on the iplayer by subscription or PPV models. I am sure there is a huge audience out there that would pay for full access to BBC content that have not already paid for it
