Flogged mine on e-bay 2 months ago, got a staggering £96 for it and 14 games. Although I'm now quite happy with my wii thank you.

The information was already in the public domain so a better analogy would be to say that if a newspaper were to mention that Kate Moss (listing her address) was away on a photo shoot and someone wrote the pertinent information down and then distributed it in the form of a flyer, then were Ms Moss' property to be burgled who would be liable? The newspaper or the flyer distributor or simply just the burglar? The information was already in the public domain via the newspaper so the distributor feasibly shouldn't be liable as you could never say where the information came from without catching the burglars and asking them. Even then it would be almost impossible to bring a successful prosecution against the leaflet distributor.
Regardless, as a cyclist I'm getting more and more fecked off with cyclists who:
A) wobble all over the bloody road
B) Don't wear helmets
C) Cycle on pavements.
D) Wear MP3 players (how the feck you're supposed to pay attention with them in I don't know).
E) Don't have lights.
In fact I'm almost as cantankerous with other cyclists as I am with car drivers.
Zachary Quinto as Spock - good casting, looks like Nimoy and is a good actor.
Simon Pegg as Scotty - Oh dear, on shakey ground already, looks nothing like Doohan (spelt it right this time) and is a comedy actor, are they making Scotty comedic?
Christopher Pike as Kirk - Who? He looks nothing like Kirk.
Karl Urban as Bones - ??? Surely he was called Bones a) because he was a doctor b) because he was a scrawny little fella. Could they not have found someone who at the very least fitted the physical bill and could act? Anyone seen Doom?
Zoe Saldana as Uhura - I can live with this, not perfect but good actress and top eye candy.
Anton Yelchin as Chekov - great actor but too young, coupled with the fact that Chekov only joined after the show had been running a while so makes no sense.
John Cho as Sulu - hurrah another comedy actor playing a serious role, well I just give up, what a shite cast.
I notice the Amazon.co.uk website has had a bit of a revamp, nice looking new site, shame they haven't changed the URLs in their emails to compensate for it though. I've just had a mail telling me my order has shipped and to click here for tracking, unfortunately here leads to a 404 which is nice.
Either this is all made up or I fit none of their demographics, lets see now:
1. Twin Towers collapse - Yeah, it was memorable.
2. Princess Diana's funeral - No recollection whatsoever, couldn't care less.
3. Moon landing - Wasn't even born.
4. Fall of the Berlin Wall - Yeah, alright memorable.
5. Bob Geldof telling Live Aid viewers to "give us your fucking money" - Never happened so hard to be memorable but I'd have gladly paid to not have to hear another ****ing thing out of Geldof rather than having to listen to a load of dross.
6. Two Ronnies' Four Candles sketch - Comedy genius, Mr Barker at his best.
7. David Brent's dance from The Office - Ricky Gervais is about as funny as finding out that your entire family and all of your close friends have been killed by a particularly virulent strain of STD given to them by an ex-girlfriend, so no, definitely not.
8. Monty Python's Dead Parrot sketch - Getting a bit tired now, they've done better.
9. England's 1966 World Cup win - Wasn't alive but bloody hate football anyway.
10. Assassination of John F Kennedy - Wasn't alive.
Hold on, has this taken into consideration down time to install MS Tuesday updates and the 3 hours afterwards fixing your server once the update ballses it up, and the further amounts of time to recover your data once it shuts down without asking you because it's a really, really important update, honest.
This game isn't going to appeal to anyone with an IQ in three figures is it? It's aimed at teens who like their violence fix (my generation had all the Stallone/Schwartzenegger nuts too but they were mostly harmless).
If the BBFC knew that parents wouldn't go out an buy an 18 game for little Timmy then they'd give it a certificate unfortunately there are so many knuckle dragging neanderthals out there that do exactly that, that they can't risk someone getting hold of a copy and facing the onslaught if that person then goes out on a rampage (the game automatically becomes responsible at that point for some reason).
Up until maybe 5 years ago, the content of SKY was pretty good but now the terrestrial channels are stealing all of the decent programs and Sky has what? The Simpsons, Stargate Atlantis and A Town Called Eureka, it's hardly likely to make you want to sign up, even Virgin 1 and FX are getting more quality programs than Sky. In summary, what a biased load of crap.
if they would install without crashing my machine, it seems that certain patches look to install themselves on the drives with the most space, unfortunately this would be the drive I rescinded their permission to which crashes my box.
Note to MS, updates install on the Windows drive or in the case of office, in the office directory, you DO NOT touch other drives on my system, okay?
So, presumably mass feeding of any kind in a public park would provoke the same response? Does this mean that that a company picnic in a park with the company paying for the food would be illegal? It might be worth trying it out, make all your employees dress scruffily (the age old stereotype of the homeless person) and go down to the park at lunchtime to partake of some cheesy convestibules provided by "the management".
That would be the department I wrote to complaining about being spammed by a UK company, whom I had unsubscribed from, emailed customer services, written to and eventually reported to no avail. I did get a letter back from the OIC telling me that they had no powers to prosecute spammers and that they had written a letter to this company telling them not to do it. I'm still recieving the emails, which all goes to prove that the OIC is and absolute waste of time and money.
1. Hayden Christensen = can't act
2. Ben Affleck = can't act and Jennifer Lopez = can't act
3. Orlando Bloom = can't act
4. Madonna = can't act
5. Catherine Zeta Jones = can't act and Sean Connery = can act but only 1 character in different forms.
6. Hugh Grant = bloody irritating and Andie MacDowell = can't act
7. Ben Affleck = can't act
8. Tom Cruise = can't act
I read a review of this little fella in the Sunday Times In Gear mag a few weeks ago, it was written by Jay Leno as Clarkson was on holiday (I don't quite follow that thinking but I digress). Anyway, about halfway through Leno's evangelising about how wonderful this car was it occurred to me that he'd never actually seen one let alone driven one. The entire article was based on all the bumph he'd been given by Teslas marketing department making it a big free 2 page ad for the car. This all now makes sense as the car doesn't live up to it's claims so there's no way he could have actually reviewed it.
I was expecting a lot more from it. I wanted at the very least shotguns blasting burberry left right and centre, how about a little ketchup here and there to make it look bloody and barbaric? Unlike happy slapping no one was actually injured in the filming of this which seems to point to the use of extreme violence on actual chavs in a remake in order to allow it to stay up.
