I'll tell you what else I think ....

@ Steve Kelly

Apple ARE taking the piss, absolutely, but what do they care when fanbois will be rocking up anyway.

Suckers!!!

Mmmwaahhh, ha, ha, haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!"

I'll bet you the school (or the headteacher) has been offered a commission by Apple, or a reseller, for any units sold.

Videogame history project successfully emulates CRT on LCD

Kids these days

"while younger players will get to game the way their dads did. "

But will they want to?!

Never mind the colour bleed and bluriness, I've shown my 11yo son the games I used to play using a C64 emulator, and he thinks they are totally lame with awful graphics, and 'No thanks - I don't want to play'.

Google goes long with new search pages

Copyright?

As an owner of a few half successful website businesses, this doesn't make me happy at all. Does this mean that people can read more than a 2 line snippet and no longer need to visit my website? The current snippet is important as it perhaps gets potential customers hooked enough to visit. From there it's MY job to get people to stay, look around and perhaps buy from me.

Why the fuck should a SEARCH ENGINE, provide more than they need to, and potentially turn my customer away before they've reached the door?

Human Rights

This is surely not possible under some human rights law, and surely EU law will squash this. You cannot charge for a toilet when there are no alternatives.

Google smears Chrome on 'sacred' home page

Thumb Up

They can do whatever they like

It's their homepage, their browser, their company.

They can break the 'rules' whenever they like, why is this story upsetting people?
