PS3 DVR add-on launch delayed

@Digital Cable Anyone?

Can't be done. Not legally anyway.

Cable Company specific set-top boxes generally use encryption.

I just hope that the announcement that we won't be able to transfer video to other devices only applies to the US.

Another plug to confuse people.

I'll stick to HDMI until such time as I can see a need to switch.

I hate April Fools Day, in a way

It's the one day of the year that I actually check the facts of a story.

In a way, AFD on the net is more of an education, in that we should all check the facts on a story, rather than going of half-cocked and reacting.

I would just like to thank The Register (and indeed, all the other great websites that participate in this AFD japery) for providing such a good education.

As for the article, I was about to write it off as another AFD joke, but a little facts checking (And checking the date/time it was posted - little late for AFD) dissuaded that.

I would be quite interested in using this to have a look at some of my emails as well. It could be quite a good corporate tool.

The internet: Increasing paranoia one AFD at a time.

Better yet

I remember reading about this a while ago.

I reckon, if you have dive tanks, hook them up instead of the compressor and up the pressure a little.

Best of all, no waiting for the pressure to build up, and no compressor noise. Should last quite a while.

Will they be coming out with a helmet for head shots and underwear for the below the belt shots?

Calls to ban hoodie-busting sonic weapon

Joe

I remember this a year(ish) ago....

There was a news article about this, they even had an mp3 of the noise. The comments section was littered with people over the age of 25 who could hear it. I was one of those that could.

There was a follow up article a couple of weeks later stating that school kids were using it as a ringtone, as the teacher couldn't hear it in class.

Hippies in the Code??

I'm sorry. I really do not understand. A script that is politically correct? Suck my what?

There is no ambiguity/judgement in a script. A script does what it is told to do. F**K the hippies.

My scripts (In what ever language) EAT MEAT!!!! (then they have pudding.)
