Apple iCloud collapse forces fanbois to shower, meet face-to-face

Re: When this happened to Blackberry...

When this happened to Blackberry it was a damn sight longer than a few hours and it RIM claim to be primarily for business.

Black Ops 2 takes HALF A BEELLION DOLLARS in just ONE DAY

Unfair comparison

Until a single ticket to the pictures costs around 50 quid I don't think you can compare the 2.

Eddie Murphy heading for worst movie ever glory

Stu Pid

Re: Hmm...

I don't think you can put a privately funded and produced movie in the same league as stuff that comes out of Hollywood. Given the fan funding context it actually doesn't look that bad from what I've seen.

ICT for Highlands and Islands fire and rescue 'inadequate'

Re: What's ICT?

Inverness Caledonian Thistle. The side that gave us the wonderful headline "Super Caley went ballistic, Celtic were atrocious" when they beat Celtic in a cup game some years back.

Been there, seen it

Has already been done. When I clicked on the story I thought it was something new. The other issue I have with these 2 is... Did they seriously charge the salvation army to advertise on their faces? They charged a charity? Studying to be bankers are they?

Sony PlayStation network moves into reality TV

Stu Pid

Without looking it up myself

I'm fairly sure they're both on the EMI label. Amazing how a random song chosen to compete against the X facter loser happens to be on the same label. One reason not to bother buying it. That and the fact I already have the album.

Daily Fail

So they decide to get outraged about a product that's been around for ages? I nearly bought this for Christmas last year. What a waste of trees. The sooner that paper goes under the better, taking the equally crappy Metro with it.

Though I do love the Gin and Titonic name, utter genius.

Tech-savvy UK kids = (over)confident writers

Stu Pid

Obvious

"Only 38 per cent of boys enjoy writing, compared with 52 per cent of girls. More boys found writing to be "boring" than girls as well: 57 versus 41 per cent. Boys also thought that writing was more for girls than boys - 60 versus 43 per cent"

Surely those figures all just balance each other out? If more boys find it boring then conversely less boys will find it interesting, and that could also account for the boys who think it's just for girls.

I think I want one of these jobs asking stupid questions to idiots and then just making up the numbers anyway.

Manchester journo gets first ID card - late

Why?

Why are the comments out of order? Makes reading witty replies very difficult.

To those who ask how this "woman" passes as a journalist, she works for the MEN. One of the worst locals around.

@Mike: What's the problem?

The privacy people would do better complaining about Google / You Tube being forced to hand UK user details to a USA company (viacom) which is against the UKs Data protection act.

Erm, pretty sure there's a thing called safe harbour (yes with a U!) in the DPA which allows data to be passed to foreign countries that we have agreements with, and the US is just one such country, as is India hence all the call centres being able to access our bank details.

What we should be more concerned about is their slow updating, Manchester wasn't updated for years, the Urbis and the city of Manchester stadium were still building sites on the net whilst I drove passed them everyday!

Scarlett Johansson to play Courtney Love?

Scarlett?

I agree with Liam, Scarlett is gorgeous and a nice person by all accounts. Courtney is a skank. She should be played by Amy Whinehorse.

T-Mobile in court over Truphone call blocks

Stu Pid

Agree

I agree with most of the above comments, being a T-Mobile customer and having them randomly charge me for calls which should be included in my call plan, I'm really upset with them for trying to charge me when using a service that allows me to call my friend who's moved abroad.

The sooner my contract runs out the better, the network's rubbish too, frequently get messages saying emergency calls only and limited service. I can't even log onto their website properly, shabby operation all round really.
