Wi-Fi Beeb viewing may break law

George Shaw

Becareful what you wish for....

....do you really think the BBC is expensive.... compare it with Sky or Virgin.... and they don't even MAKE any programs... and do you really think advertising is free??? ...you pay for everything in the end... at least with the licence fee you know how much you pay, and what you get...

...and it's not the BBC that make the rules... it's government legislation... in fact it's not even a licence to watch the BBC, it's a licence to receive broadcast TV signal of any sort... the money doesn't have to go to the BBC, the government just chooses to give it too them...

...do you really believe that if the BBC went to other funding methods, the government would get rid of this income stream... would they feck...

Content - not tech - delaying possible Sky 3D channel

George Shaw

So...

.....how does this work... it's not just a stupid rehash of green and red specs is it... if it is then I assume they are taking the piss....

if it's not full colour holographic 3D that I can walk around, then I'm not interested....

Channel 4 fails to open archives to Mac, Linux fans

George Shaw

@Don't tell the advertisers...

On Demand programmes don't have adverts.... much better way to watch C4 (well on Virgin Cable anyway) :)

the choice is piss poor, but alas so is C4 now.... and it started off so promising...

Vatican endorses Darwin, slights intelligent design

George Shaw

@"Darwin got it very wrong by excluding the possibility of God. "

Oh dear, you have fallen at the first hurdle, you are stuck at the classic creationist 'wrongthinking'....you're starting here, at the end...looking back at a journey of several hundred million years and saying, oh that was a complex route I could never of got here by chance, there must have been someone guiding me... but evolution works the other way, you start at the beginning, you take random turns,dead ends, fast lanes, back streets, eventually you end up somewhere you like, you had no idea where that would be, but it just happens to be here, could have been a thousand other places, but you've chosen here, for now...and you got here all by yourself...

TomTom goes upper class

George Shaw

Errr.....

My 910 came with a 2yr warranty, I know that cause I've had to send the POS back to TomTom 3 times so far. Most unreliable piece of hardware I've ever owned. Excellent service though, turned around within 24hrs each time.

Virgin Media eases off bandwidth throttling

George Shaw
Unhappy

WTF

Never having read any of the c**p VM have sent me, I didn't even know there were download limits, I'm sure my original Telewest (Birmingham Cable) connection had no limits !!!!

Anyway the whole thing has become so sloooow since VM took over, don't know what they've done to it.

And in all the years it was Blueyonder, it was only offline for about 12hrs in total (over about 5yrs) now the bloody thing never works. VM load of sh1t.
