Lockheed offers ready-to-go supersoldier exoskeleton

loud

In the video, the exoskeleton seems to be playing music constantly. I think that would P*ss me off after a while.

Also, my mates watch cost 200 pounds and I'm pretty sure I could carry that unaided.

Hollywood to totally recall Total Recall

radian

casting

I suggest Jordan as the bimbo with 3 baps and Jo Brand as a mutant. I also quite like the idea of Tom Cruise playing that robotic cabbie and Woody Allen as Quade.

Bubba?

Am I the only one who doesn't understand the Bubba reference?

I'm too scared to look it up at work in case the search brings up 'undesirable' web pages.

rant

I don't buy a lot of music these days because 99% of it is total sh*t.

Poxy girls bands, poxy boy bands, talentless bimbo's who look good but can't sing, lyrics predictably about sex or how much money the 'artist' (Ha!) has got or how many f*cking car's they own and what dumb wheels they've put on it, and then to cap it all they go making up words because they're limited vocabulary prevents them from using real words to form a rhyme.

It's all b*ll*cks.

How the hell do you turn off the Twat-o-tron once its engaged?

PS3's Home to debut tomorrow

radian

@ Am I the only PS3 owner

No, you're not.

Home looked interesting at first (all those years ago...) but the delays have given me time to realise that it has nothing to offer... like FaceBook.

I like FPS's though.

I also like Marmite.

Retro piracy - Should the Royal Navy kick arse?

H&S

Surely the best way to stop piracy is to introduce them to health and safety.

I for one would be interested in reading their risk assessment and I'm pretty sure that the news footage showed no sign of high-visibility clothing.

The DNA database and you

@ David Mery

Thanks for clearing that up.

not unique?

I'm pretty sure that although they take your whole DNA sequence, when it comes to checking for criminal activity they only look at certain markers, not the whole sequence. If that's correct, then your chances of being wrongly accused of a crime are a lot higher than is generally thought and a nightmare to prove your innocence.

I seem to remember reading about a guy who was accused of rape after his DNA was matched to that which was found on the victim. Problem was he was white and even though the victim repeatedly told the police the attacker was black, the police wouldn't back down because as far as they were concerned, the DNA evidence was beyond doubt.

Although the guy was eventually found to be innocent, his life had been ruined by this but it's ok because he had nothing to hide or fear.

SanDisk pitches 100x SSD speed boost tech

radian

quick question...

'.....will accelerate SSD random write speeds by a factor of 100'.

100x faster than what? Their current SSDs (which are pretty slow to start with)? The intel X-25M? An Mtron Pro?

I still want one anyway.

Demand for consoles, add-ons skyrockets as PC games plunge

radian

for me, it was the cost

The last game I bought on the PC was STALKER, and it was great, but then my motherboard packed up and due to my system being a bit old I thought I'd build a new one.

The graphics card alone would've about 300 quid so I bought a PS3 instead (please don't attack me xbox fanboys).

With regards to someone's comments regarding FPS's with a joypad being a bit crap, I'll admit that the first month was a nightmare, but after a while I got used to it.

People voted for Obama because they think they're going to get something like that guy on 24.

At the end of the day though, all politicians are lying b*stards.

bandwagon

I personally don't like Jo Brand. I find her offensive to look at and listen too. I can't wait for the day she does something to offend the general public so I can use it as an excuse to complain and hopefully get her off TV.

Its a shame we can't get rid of politicians so easily.

CoD 8 - An Unpleasant Scuffle

I suppose the next Call of Duty will have weapons such as the dreaded pea-shooter or a balloon on a stick. Get 8 Chinese burns in a row and you can activate a super weapon whereby everyone has to sit down for a nice cup of tea and a slice of toast.

Are you still aloud to use the term 'Chinese burn' or is it deemed to be racist?

I can't keep up with all this politically correct BS.

US Navy SEAL uniforms: Now with built-in tourniquets

@Tim

Didn't have time for lunch today, so technically that's worse than having a Twix, I think.

I intend to make up for it tomorrow though.

I finish at midday on Friday so I'm going to a nice quiet pub for steak and chips and a beverage or two.

@ Tim

Your lunch sounds yummy.

I think I'll stick with the bottled water though. Working in London means there's a good chance the tap water has passed through several politicians already.

That thought alone is enough to bring my Twix up.

Where's the 'I had a crap lunch and metioned it in the comments section of the Register' icon?

I don't know. Maybe its something to do with the tampon reference but I too would ilke clarification.

I'd just like to say that my lunch today consists of a Twix and a bottle of water. This is a new low for me.

Bioshock sequel teaser trailer now showing

radian

meh

I played Bioshock on the PC when it first came out, it was ok, pretty good in some places but I personally thought it was a bit overated. Once completed, I never felt the urge to play it again. (I never had a problem with bugs or crashes though)

Downloaded and completed the PS3 demo, can't say I'll be playing it again.

Played Far Cry 2 over the weekend, now THAT kicked ass.

I worked in Muswell Hill telephone exchange on a couple of occasions.

There used to be a bloke who worked there who loved his radio and if you turned it down/off or changed the channel, he'd go completely bananas.

He was actually a nice guy, just as long as you didn't touch is radio...

Crazy Japanese earthquake game makes shaky debut

pointless?

Why would the Japanese pay to have a go on an earthquake simulator? I mean, surely they experience the real thing often enough don't they?

Its a bit like living in Deptford, and then paying to have a go on a sh*t hole simulator, or the Gordon Brown simulator that keeps taking your money but gives nothing in return.

Another London BT exchange hit by thieves

radian

crap security

Up until a couple of years ago I worked in telephone exchanges all over the country.

This kind of theft was quite common. I knew people who were frequently called out to see why an ISP had lost all its connections, only to find the equipment had been pinched.

We were also advised to keep an eye out for suspicious characters when working nights.
