Re: This makes the Ouya look highly impressive!
Not likely - Microsoft have cancelled their press round table and won't be talking to journalist.
That's saved me a bit of cash on next-gen games and consoles. Let's see if Sony save me a bit more.
Re: And again: WHO DECIDES?
If it's Keith Vaz you can kiss goodbye to video game websites ...
Re: Game resellers as "parasites"
"Good luck buying visible body parts for a car that are identical in look to the originals. Not legal in the EU"
I can go the the scrap yard and get parts from there no trouble at all.
He's right but for the wrong reason
It's because we're protecting the stupid. Previously they used to die from sticking their heads in the mouths of lions. Now we put fences up and make it illegal.
Good luck with that Egypt.
Re: Not Android.
Not the case - it affects my original HTC Desire and that's running VillainROM, not a Samsung and no TouchWiz in sight.
When will Apple be calling for a mass burning of existing Samsung handsets?
Re: compensate for hazard?
I'm glad more than one person has read and understood it :)
Re: Speed != bad driving
You'd have already adjusted your speed to compensate and mitigate against the hazard.
Observation for what's happening, what's about to happen and what you can reasonably assuming is going to happen outranks blinding sticking to a speed limit due to some arbitrary numbers in a red bounded circle regardless of what's going on around you.
Be inclined to have gotten rid of the snivelling, back-stabbing, arse-licking, self-serving, contemptible corporate drone myself.
Let's face it - if he's prepared to do that to a "friend" then he'd be prepared to do the same thing to anyone there, including his boss; especially to get up the next rung on the corporate ladder. Maybe that's simply the kind of culture Apple employees enjoy - "Be a company informer. Betray your colleagues & co-workers. Fabulous prizes to be won"
His boss should definitely have checked the conversation wasn't being recorded.
It'll follow the Xbox360, PS3 model where the choice is Yes/No - you can choose No, but you won't be able to connect to certain roads if you decline.
Nothing barmy about it
Some of us prefer a physical product we can touch and do with as we please, often available for less than the cost of iTunes tie-ins if you look around the various online retailers.
Definitely a noticable difference
It's in the smaller details where you spot it most of all.
My collection is around the same level, but I'll keep the physical media though thanks - I prefer having a tangible product in my hands. There's no way I feel that a file on my HDD has as much worth, plus those boxsets look smart on the shelves.
This story was being reported incorrectly - the problems have been caused by the last dashboard patch, not the upcoming one for the XGD3 format discs.
... for once that the update breaks my aging launch console.
Than my 90 year old gran's bladder.
It's in the manual
Yup - observant *thumbs up*
Dust build up kills laptops and PCs too so I'm sure that doesn't help, but there's no doubt Xbox360 has suffered a higher than usual mortality rate though - I've suffered from two dead machines myself and my machines are kept on a proper well spaced TV stand - regardless of how much you clean that build up happens.
It did get a bit better when Jeri Ryan turned up.
This *IS* a title
That is all.
That'll just get you banned from Xbox Live by the "enforcement" team.
Not a choice
Whether you chose to upgrade or not Sony is crippling the functionality of the machine you bought and paid good money for; the equivalent of, well, you can lose your left thumb or your right one. Either way you're still only going to be left with one thumb.
It's not right, and for those saying, well I don't use it so it doesn't matter, you're completely missing the point.
If Sony decide to remove DVD-R, Wifi, BluRay or Bluetooth support in the future due to "security" are you going to rollover and accept that as acceptable too?
There is a box
it's just a white font on a white background
Do they ...
.. actually believe the crap they spout out themselves?
Are they really that dilusional? Or is it simply one big cocaine party on expenses at Whitehall?
Enquiring minds want to know.
Go to twitter, type "I'm going to kill" in to the search box and click search - be careful not to click post as you may well find yourself up for prosecution under the same act as this chap is being charged.
Now type in "I'm going to blow up"
Now type in "I'm going to bomb"
Now type in "I'm going to rape"
Now type in "I'm going to hurt"
Now type in "I'm going to punch"
Now type in "I'm going to steal"
How many of those people in the search results does the CPS intend to charge? It'd certainly help to meet government targets.
Hell, TheWileyOnes has stated on twitter, just 8 hours ago as I type this that: "In memory of Peter Graves: I'm going to steal a 747 to crash into that big glass window at LAX." - I'm scared, better get on to the authorities now ... it's just as credible.
I think perhaps we should get a little bit of perspective and put the common sense filter on for a moment.
Total Perspective Vortex required.
'do you think that he would have got a ban and been charged if he wrote "You've got a week and a bit to get your shit together or I'm going to organise a public demonstration"'
Given the current government who don't like that sort of thing, yes.
"But, remember there is a huge difference in the concequences of what you say depending where and when you say it"
I hope that when you speak that you're *very* careful anyone around you doesn't have a mobile phone, camera, recording device - or that CCTV cameras are trained on someone else and is lacking in audio.
As has already been pointed out - twitter "I'm going to kill", "I'm going to rape", "I'm going to mug", "I'm going to rob", "I'm going to be an Member of Parliament" ... that's thought crime right there - this is total and utter nonsense, lacks any credibility and makes security intelligence ever more an oxymoron.
If I retweet ...
... Do I then become an accessory to "sending a menacing message"?
If that's the actual text in the tweet, then yes, this is a complete waste of time - it's blindingly obvious it's not a credible threat.
I've just searched twitter for "I'm going to kill" - the police have got their work cut out, the number of potential serial killers on there staggering.
Spotify Preview to Purchase
"Other people, such as myself have bought several albums I've listened to on spotify, while they were still available on spotify"
Yup, me too.
*Gives Warner gun, points at Warner's foot*
Or ferry ports
Or the dentists
Or shopping malls
Or pubs - I seem to remember that they use to be a good terror target
Or houses - scanners at every doorway, just to be *safe* - it's all in the name of security after-all.
Mostly Wine and Brandy
There are six bars in the Houses
The Pugin Room: Bar lounge, also serving morning coffees and afternoon teas to Members,
Officers and their guests.
Members' Smoking Room: For Members only.
Strangers' Bar: For Members, Officers, senior staff, and their guests.
Terrace Bar: As for Strangers' Bar (Easter to July only).
Annie's Bar: For Members, Officers and Lobby journalists. Opened in 1968; relocated
Press Bar: For Lobby journalists, Official report staff and Doorkeepers
And the great thing is this: bars in the House of Commons operate without a licence, and do not keep to the permitted hours laid down by the Licensing Acts (and I'd suspected are highly discounted too).
It's not going to stop
http://digs.by/zdy - a Guardian reporter vid over stop and search just days after police were reminded street photography is no offence.
It's all security theatre and utter nonsense and it's not going to stop until the revolution and we take the power back.
Your argument - which was also the line trotted out by Microsoft fails because of this reason.
Both Microsoft HDD and Microsoft Memory cards can be used in a similar way to hack game saves - they are essentially USB devices and only require the right lead and software to browse.
Hell, you can even use MS own HDD transfer kit cable.
