Is this the same chart that put Nintendo in last place because they don't actually provide any info, rather than any perceived 'eco-crime'?
Since it's already at rock bottom..
...at least the quality of their football coverage can't get any worse.
I think it means that the %age of that 'pledge' amount that has been paid.
eBay and Paypal
I'm still unsure how eBay can deny payment methods other than PayPal and not be put under the same sort of pressure that MS are regarding EU competition rules.
Thank god for that.
This is nothing but a gimmick and I'm glad that the Beeb are spending the license money on more useful stuff like iPlayer than this tosh.
They've invented The Dancing Sunflower 2.0.
85%? The review says 80%.
Regardless of that, how is it rated higher than the 901, since the review even says to get the 901 instead plus that 901 got 90%.

Is it more or less annoying than chavs at the back of a bus playing gangsta rap on their mobile phone for everyone to endure?
Red Faction 2?
Are the wages that low at El Reg that you can't afford a more recent game to test it with?
Space Tourist Garriott?
Oh you mean the creator of the Ultima series, which he is infinitely more famous for, yet wasn't mentioned in the article...
Useless on the beach?
“If you buy a Kindle in the UK and want to read it on the beach on holiday in Spain,
unless we have signed deals in Spain it's not going to work on that beach,” McBride said.
What, so it has no local storage then?
How can 3 days be enough time for something like this to be acted upon?
I'm not surprised they are a bit hostile about it.
Is it really that bad?
I've not had any issues using it. Yeah, it is another layer of hassle but it does have a purpose.
I understand that remembering the password could be an issue for people who only buy something every 6 months or so, but what is Steve's excuse?
He must be living an idyllic life if this is worth getting all upset about.
Surely asking the government whether it is legal or not it should of started alarm bells ringing.
"Is this way of betraying our customer's good faith, and violating their privacy legal?"
Any company which valued it's customers more than just cattle should never be going down a road that they need to ask such a question.
> and for any company that owns the registration more than 10 domains to forfeit any of those domains if the domain fails to provide significant and unique content after 3 months.
How on earth would that be even vaguely practical or indeed enforceable?
Did you really just compare downloading a copy of the latest pop album with child pornography?
Yes. I think you did. Oh dear.
I left Egg when they decided it was ok to lie to me about payments made into a savings account. They swore blind via the Egg email system they could not tell me who paid the money in due to 'data protection' and 'privacy' reasons. I called their bluff but they were insistent. I ended up phoning them and asking for the info, which was given to me within minutes.
I closed down my accounts soon after that as It's never wise to give your money to someone you can't trust.
