BT static IP customers get nothing but static

Ben

@AC

That advert is infuriating if only for the very careful language they use, it actually states that the BT provided Wifi is more reliable than the competitors not the ADSL.

fat lot of use having reliable wifi is when your trying to book the last minute flight (or whatever the hell it was) and you actual net connection is down.

I die a little each time

Bah.

Samsung etches tiny mechanical shutter for cameraphones

Ben
Alert

video?

I get how it helps with a still picture for the reasons given, but how does a shutter help with capturing smoother video? Surly it just means the first frame and the last frame are "crisper" without affecting the stuff in the middle?

A year later?

So its one year on from the Compact IV - shame most people who will be interested in it immediately are on the 18 month contracts....!

Can you talk and drive?

Passengers

I'm not trying to say using your mobile is right while driving however, does that mean that having a passenger talking to you is also socially unacceptable? I fail to see how a correctly fitted handsfree is different from having someone else in the car (other than perhaps a passenger is more appreciative of things like arriving at a junction).

Amazon UK downplays Kindle Christmas

Ben

full euro coverage?

“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,”

So the Euro Kindle isn't going to have storage??? what a crap reason to delay. When I'm away i don't expect it to magically work everywhere.

Amazon's 'Kindle 2' spotted in the wild

Ben

coming to UK?

I hope that thing makes it over here...

Might not be the prettiest ebook reader but i think they (amazon) have the right distribution model.

Was looking in Waterstones at the sony one and the new James bond novel was £12 ish on the ebook reader!?!! who would buy that at only £2 cheaper than the hardback version. On Amazon US the kindle version is $9 much more like it.

Japanese geeks offered smaller-than-Eee little laptop

Ben

XP Tablet?

"Fortunately, neither the SA5KXO8AL and SA5KXO8FL run Windows' Tablet PC Edition"

Why is this fortunately? If its a tablet form factor without the tablet stuff isn't that a bit silly?
