$10 will buy you 99% of these upgrades. What's the point of shelling out nearly £538, in the current economic climate, for such a pitiful upgrade??

I have Sky+ and I am yet to receive this update. So either Sky have already prevented the rollout, or are already int he process of rolling everything back...
And I still can't find ANY info on what this update actually achieves/does. Aside from destroying out of warranty boxes...
Bill gates with Horms becuase Microsoft are the cuase of everything wrong, electronically, in the world.
All in all I'm impressed with it, it certainly SEEMS to make the console feel more lightweight. I have already installed GTA: IV to the HDD leaving me with 5GB of space to save stuff too (I have the demo of Mirrors edge installed too) So a 20GB HDD isn't a total bust, but you have to think carefully before you download something now...
I'm al;ready saving my pennies for a 120GB HDD... Microsoft's plan all along I think...
What happens when the experience becomes old hat though, will it just become Xbox Experience??
Also anyone noticed they retured Windows 3.11 recently too, coincidence??
In the UK, There used to be Jabra "jelly" headsets, these had a tiny microphone that attached itself to your jawbone, so rather than looking like a call centre operative in your car, you could look like a tw*t in your car instead...
This is just reinventing the wheel
Police seem very afraid of technology. Maybe they are just scared of this "new" tech.
We once had a server hacked at a company I worked for in Stoke. They sent two officers down to collect finger prints and determine a point of entry to the server room, it didn't occur to them that this could be done remotely and they needed more electronic methods to see what had happened.
They went a lovely shade of red when we explained what a hack was and what DDOS attack meant...
Why are politicians hiding behind piddly little laws when it comes to tracking and combating terrorism??? Look at all this high-tech sh*t we just bought, but we can't use it because some bureaucrat thinks it will infringe the human rights of some shady character who's come to assassinate the prime minister!!
Of course I wouldn't want my data infringed, but does that mean that setting up my out of office assistant to say "Sorry I'm not here, but I'm on holiday in the Yukon!!" mean I am infringing my own data protection by letting people know I am not there, I am out of the country, I am on holiday and I am in the Yukon.
Legal Loophole: Please swipe your fingerprints sir, it's just like a giant out of office assistant that notifies the government you're not here!!
I think it's a fore-gone conclusion that Blu-Ray will triumph, as reported on this very website, more and more people are moving over to Blu-Ray or drooping it completely from their sales line-up. Toshiba are being overly optimistic on this one!!
HANG ON!!! Weren't we all forced over to chip and pin so everything was more secure in case our cards GOT stolen, this paywave thing is back to square one surely. Yes it is limited to £10 transactions MAX, but someone will find a way to eliminate that limit and abuse the sysem.
Waste of time, what was chip and pin for if they are going to take a step back with this system!!??
Why would you buy a PS3 if you want to play PS2 games??? You never know, knowing Sony they will probably rejig the config of the 40GB version to include backwards compatibility and the missing card reader. Take the case of a 60GB and pop a 40GB in it (with a few extras fo course)...
Zipping is a good idea, but what about setting up an FTP server on it?? Or another WACKY idea, move it to the other PC you want to use it on!!
This drive sounds like a complete waste of time though, you could sue for mis-representation, the product DOES NOT do what it say it does, it doesn't let you share over your own network!!
What's the point of ID cards now, there's enough fake data out there now for anyone to be cloned. When the abbey was bought by Santander and my records transferred over to the Santander system, they changed my name, screwing up every direct debit and standing order I have, bascially erasing me from history. The goverment has now lost enough data on me (as I have children), for someone to be open or do pretty much anything in my name.
So what if the data is protected by military grade encryption, so what, a 5 year old has probably already worked out the password, or even worse, the dumb-ass at the goverment office probably wrote the password ON THE CD!!
