"dogged by controversy and cockups"...just a bit

sorry but the home secretary of the uk's husband claim for a porno on her expenses must be one of the biggest disgraces and piss takes of modern times. how she can still hold her head up in public is a mystery to me.

@cowherd

yeah that's right, don't have an opinion, just follow the sheep like everyone else and keep your head down. "I personally find Football dull." - isn't that a bitchy comment?

you seem to have the most comments of anyone on the register stories over the past few months don't you? or is there more than one anonymouse cowherder?

oh, and sorry, but hugh is right, twitter is for tw@ts, give it 6 months and the next online social revolution will be here...

Microsoft announces Zune HD

@ whoever and dapprman

yep the standard ipod headphones are pretty poor, i opted for sony ex71 in-ear ones, not bad. you can of course alter the sound with the equalizer feature if you need more bass.

but come on, if you leave out the headphones, the file quality/compression/type rah rah rah, then most songs will sound the same on an ipod and a zune, they are just hard drives aren't they?

@dapprman - what sort of archos do you have? i've got my eyes on an archos 5 instead of ipod touch....

@ anunandmouse cowherder

"the audio is far superior to that of an Ipod"

can you expand on this? you're using the same files/bitrate/compression on an ipod and zune are you? and the standard earphones? and you can still tell a difference in sound quality? what are you - a bat?

i actually like the look of this, it has a battlestar galactica gadget vibe going on....will be interested to see the announced xbox integration and hd playing (through a dock?).

could be more of a competitor to the archos 5, rather than the ipod touch i think......

@ Anonymous Coward

"I'm giving up on reading comments about new products"

why don't you stop commenting on them as well then?

we're giving our opinion about a new product you prat, sorry if you don't like it.

i actually find the amazon experience pretty good, great prices and delivery, probably why they're so massive.

"Without a keyboard, how are you supposed to search or annotate (or browse the store and the web)?"

-ever heard of the ipod touch? the keyboard appears on the screen 'as if by magic' - go and have a look or are you too busy hiding from one of he many companies you have 'worked for' or have insider knowledge about? yep, that's why you're an anonymous coward isn't it? because of all your top secret insider info?

or you could some old bloke that's sat at home reading every story on the register and writing bollox opinions......

i suspect she's had worse!

can we please now make this story the last reference to this over-hyped nonsense.

if we need to talk about illnesses i believe there are people still dying of cancer, heart disease, aids, lung cancer etc etc - things which actually effect the good folk of the uk, not some tourists who caught a sniffle after visiting pedro's beach fleapit.

Swine flu apocalypse: Batten down the hatches

richard
Stop

the sun has the full gory details:

yes folks, exclusive news, their headline is 'Hell in the hospitals as swine flu hits UK'.

but fear not, read down the story and you find:

'No cases of swine flu, the new human strain of a virus usually associated with pigs, have been confirmed in Britain. '

and:

'Six people in CANADA were confirmed as having “very mild” cases of swine flu.'

yes, very mild. and:

'In NEW ZEALAND, of 19 students, 13 of them almost certainly had the virus'

yes, almost certainly.

and:

'in ISRAEL ..Tomer Vagim is in a hospital....showing suspicious symptoms.'

yes, suspicious.

oh, and worryingly:

'four more tourists were undergoing tests in FRANCE'

yes 4.

it's so bad that 2 people in scotland are in hospital:

'suffering “flu-like symptoms”, yes, 2.

and that businessman from Northamptonshire has now been cleared surprisingly, it's

'very good news' he said.

thank god that:

'Our authorities are gearing into action' otherwise we'd be totally fucked!

i thought we'd all died of bird flu?

about a year ago the bbc were in full scaremonger mode with a panic about a swan in aberdeen with a slight cough.

this 'lethal' virus didn't seem to make it past hadrians wall though, so we're safe in our beds again.

have a quick look at the bbc 'have your say' forum and nobody gives a toss, we're actually more bothered about our taxes going up, so calm down bbc.

Microsoft to cover ‘E74’ Xbox 360 error

as a huge mac fan...

i love my 360 and the games are great. it brings "cheap" hd gaming to the masses, it's a nice little (ish) box.

i did have to take it back to toysrus when the memory card flaps broke, and it never starts up first time, and it sounds like a jet engine, and you can't play all old xbox games on it (please why?) but apart from that i enjoy playing it and xbox live (updated) is superb.
