Re: Seriously?

Their response times did however go through the roof. Sky Bet however seemed to work like a charm through out.

X-Men helmsman to fly Battlestar Galactica

The hell?

I just can't see the point to this.

The reimagining of BSG was, for want of a better work, brilliant. A movie just doesn't have the length to do a decent story based on the outline of what BSG is about.

Before they made the new series, I would have said yes to this, but now I see no point.

Happened To Me

This has happened to me when I tried installing something from the App store.

Luckily we felt it overheating and turned it off. After it cooled down, we turned it back on, and it was fine again.

Not good though!

eBay UK pimps users' privacy for targeted ads

Twisting of Words

Seems to me El-Reg is twisting words a bit there.

Just because you accept doesn't mean you have to have ads. You can then turn them off.

Opera CTO: How to fix Microsoft's browser issues

Stephen Melrose

Microsoft's Difficult Position

I agree that Microsoft need to get IE up to form, but they can't do it over night.

IE is still by far the dominant browser on the internet, and a LOT of websites are built specifically to work on it. With this in mind, Microsoft need to think about their user base and the websites those users access.

If they were to change IE over night to be standards compliant, a lot of websites around the world would cease to work properly, and people would actually demand to have the old IE back because websites actually worked on it.

No matter what we developers demand, we have to think about the end of our process, the users. Microsoft are slowly but surely trying to bring IE into touch. They have a very large hole they need to dig out of, and it is just going to take time and compromises.
