"One can only imagine what the Psion range might have evolved into in the netbook era, had management (and shareholders) held their nerve."

Study slams brain-training games' mental improvement claims

Andrew Moore

Surely...

...the medium should not have a bearing on increase or decrease of IQ. If the kids using the pencil and paper were doing exactly the same tests as the kids with the DS the results should be roughly the same...

Or did the kids with the pencils and paper get a more rigorous test?

Absolutely Fabulous ups sticks to LA

Andrew Moore

By my reckoning...

Intel Atom heir in rumor mill upgrade

Andrew Moore

What a surprise...

I always thought Atom was a way for Intel to get right back to its core model of releasing a new chip every 6 months. It's gone nearly as far as it can with the heavy metal-so now lets jump back in time and start again.

Google AdWords: 11 herbs and spices revealed

Andrew Moore

Also Googles Reverse Billing...

Rather than simply billing for the number of ads served during the month, Google ask you how much you wish to pay and then massage the prices to make sure you pretty much paid that amount monthly. We had one month where we only had 1 single click. The price of that click- €49.99.

We suspended our use of adwords after that.

Play.com pestered to back up price claims

Andrew Moore

Euro conversion...

"Pick something is £30, and press the Euro button. Play will convert it to around €45, rather than the $33 it should be."

If you are lucky- Some of their conversions are as high as €2 to £1- especially on their special offer stuff. I've long since moved to cdnow.com- Faster service and realistic prices.

Urgh!

The boss got one of these to replace his iPhone. I didn't think there was a worse mobile than an iPhone. I was wrong. RIM has taken everything that's crap in an iPhone and made it crappier! Congratulations.

Ah censorship...

"an Insurance company was rather surprised to find that after implementation of its in-house filtering system, direct mail campaigns to Essex, Sussex and Middlesex ceased entirely – as did communication with the inhabitants of Scunthorpe."
