Laptops to blame for Qantas jet plunge?

Paris Hilton

Mile High Club

I think you will find from the blackbox that the cause of the sudden drop was the hostess playing with the pilots joystick in the cockpit.....

Paris - Because she knows how to handle a joystick.....

Dick Smith pr0n mobe heads for eBay

Paris Hilton

She is looking for cas$h

This is a beat-up from some bimbo who wants cas$h from Woolworths (the owners of Dick Smith electronics in Australia)

9 out of 10 Aussies would have thought this was a bonus - this biatch is just going for her 5 mins of fame....

I would love to know the identity of the shop girl - I might go and buy a HD video camera off her....

Paris - because she knows what it's like to have images such as these shared globally.....

Rockstar confirms GTA IV PC edition

"Great, now the years biggest disappointment of the year on console can be a big disappointment on PC too!"

How did they kill a franchise - most of the guys I know think this is the best game ever - period - on any console.

Curious as to what's so bad about it.

Paris - because she can grab my joystick anytime she likes....

Lovefilm 1, BitTorrent/iTunes/retail 0

Jobs Halo

Just another way of doing it....

In Oz a lot of people subsribe to similar services and simply burn the discs the night they arrive and send them back in the mail the next day - maximising the monthly throughput

How to destroy 60 hard drives an hour

Paris Hilton

I would love to drill Paris hard....

I am a big Paris fan

But back on topic. Why not throw them all into an active volcano - costs nothing and I think the lava will do all that needs to be done.....

Grand Theft Auto 4 queue man stabbed in head

Paris Hilton

Give it to the kid

If the kid can play the game, and wants it, give it to him.

He's only young once, and having played it will give him a lot of cred with his mates.

If he's 12+ he will already have seen more porn and violence than you think.....

I am disappointed this stabbed bloke only went to get a knife - if he'd returned with a samurai sword, an ice pick or a chainsaw then that would be worthy of respect......

A head for an eye.

Paris because she knows a lot about head.

Nvidia powers up GeForce 9800 GTX, nForce 790i


Old news

The 9800Gtx has been available in retail stores in Australia for a week.

It's about $375 in a cheap shop - thats a lot less than 200 UK pounds. Performance is better than the 8800GTX, but not a lot better. It's 512mb memory is blamed for it not being quicker in some games.

Word is that the replacement to the 9800GTX, due by Xmas, is a LOT quicker.

Four 1TB hard drives on test


Seagate = Shitegate

Well I can only agree with Steve Roper about Seagate drives.

I've had 10 replaced in the last 5 years. All different sizes. They don't seem to cope too well with BitTorrent and other P2P programs.

I have had 2 Maxtors and 2 Samsungs in the same period - all still work, but the Samsungs are VERY slow.

I am in the market for 4 x 750gb drives and I will be going WD or Samsung only.

Nvidia to unveil GeForce 9600 this week?

Paris Hilton

Poor value for money

This card is a piece of shi%

It underperforms an 8800GT by a considerable margin, yet is only $11 AUD less!!

What a waste of time....

Pioneer Project Kuro 'Extreme Contrast' first look


I assume these are plasmas not LCDs?

Kuro is plasma right?

So does that mean its fine for a dark room, but where you have natural light an LCD is still better overall?

Plunging player prices to reveal Blu-ray vs HD DVD winner?


Sony and Blu Ray for mine in Oz

A couple of pertinent facts from the other side of the world:

* Australian broadband speeds are SHITE and not likely to improve in the next 5 years - so we won't be downloading high def movies

* Add to that our ISPS are all upping their prices and placing limits like 10 to 20 gig per month on downloads AND uploads combined

* Sony is running a promo where you get a free PS3 with any Sony full HD purchased

* All the major video rental stores in Australia are either exclusively blu ray or stock about 3:1 Blu to HD DvD

Blu Ray is kicking HD DVD's ass so bad in Australia it is not funny - we are only small, but the battle is over here....

Manhunt, mods and maddened mothers



What I love is buying these banned games before they are removed from the shelves, then selling them on EBAY for twice what I paid!!!

Keep it up Rockstar - I love your games!!

Intel cuts desktop prices by up to 50%


Where is the price chart?

It would help if you would include a table showing each CPU, the old price and the new price.....
