No Map?

Would have been good if you'd have posted a map so when I'm back down that way I can actively avoid them/destroy them.

Apple blueprints warranty Big Brother

Joel
Stop

How's this any different?

Plenty of electrical devices have stickers that say "warranty void if seal is broken". Why is it worse if Apple do this with some sensors rather than stickers?

So these numpties are going to be trying to build these things themselves, and THEN killing themselves...

Sounds like sneaky genocide to me!

Apple admits to iPhone 3GS heliophobia

Joel
Paris Hilton

Compliance

"Apple said the iPhone complies with key safety standards in the US, Europe and Down Under."

roughly translated as..

"it's legal bitches, we don't care."

Paris: because she changes colour in the sun .. ?

Boffin

Oh!

"It seems that one can combine formyl-pyridine and diaminobiphenyl disulfonate with iron to form a molecular tetrahedron with a central void space in its middle"

Oh of course! Now why didn't I think of that?

iPhone apps - the 10 smartest and the 10 stupidest

LogMeIn

It's a shame that LogMeIn is such a rip off, when you have to pay subscription aswell (unless you just use a free account I guess). I use LogMeIn to access my home pc from work and vise-versa, but why would I download this for 30 bucks when I could just us VNC for free?

Bank Error In Your Favour Collect $10000000

These guys are totally going to win Monopoly.

On the legality of it, surely Monopoly is in fault here, because they encourage.... no instruct you to take the money from bank errors.

@Kieron McCann

It's called "evolution for efficiency".

When I go back to NZ I definitely want to be able to use my iPhone, but at the current prices... a choice is welcome!

Why am I even back in the UK?

Apple patents OS X Dock

Joel
Happy

Those other docks?

I don't think Apple will worry about those other docks that are available, mainly because they're marketed as offering the Apple experience on a PC or whatever, which, you know if people want to destroy window's GUI with a pretty Mac UI.. wouldn't that make Apple happy?

Instant Messages

No idea if this is related but I received a spam instant message from a random address, sending me a link to a website to download a MS Dos file of some kind.

The ol' "I've found some pictures of you!" scam... I think the url they sent me too was image-bin.com or something along those lines.

Really good argument.. if that happened to myself, I'd definitely try and use that.

Also, October?? That gives plenty of time for the hacker to sell his laptop and get a new one, does it not?

Student reprimands Facebook for bad manners and exposed code

Joel

Trae..

Did he explain as to why the glitch occurred? Or what they're doing to prevent the problem again?

Surely you couldn't have been the only person to have had that problem... perhaps the only competent person to have noticed and done something about it... but surely not the only.

Who cares? Facebook is an awful website, with poor layout and so it's not surprising there's security glitches.

BBC iPlayer launches, but with limited viewer reach

Joel

Beta?

Strange that, isn't it. They've "Released" it, and yet it's still a limited beta version which I can't even download.

You're journalists, tell me why, don't just write stuff I already saw on the BBC iPlayer site :(

And what's with the whole "i" Player.. why not think of a more original name... I know the BBC can be boring asses sometimes, but there's got to be someone with a little spark of creativity around there somewhere.

Google Checkout downchecked by UK users

Joel

Ebuyer

I also had trouble with Ebuyer and Google Checkout's £10 off deal. However It wasn't anything to do with car rejection, simple that Ebuyer failed to display the terms and conditions before I sent my hard earned cash, and so didn't find out until after that the deal did not include postage.

£10 on delivery wasted. Thanks Ebuyer.

Missing German doctor reappears after 22 years

Joel

RE: Alan

Joel, you said "How so? Was he doing an experiment or something? Did he wrap himself up? And surely the wife would have smelled it?"

Just to put you in the picture, "mummified" doesn't actually mean wrapped in bandages lol.

--------

I realise that :P, what I'm saying is, if he clambered up into his roof with a bottle of schnaps, how on earth did he become mummified? Garage roofs are generally damp places are they not? Maybe he covered himself in soil or something.
