Brits find accommodation a little uncomfortable

Jamie Kephalas
Stop

That's not the correct attitude...

"However, when it comes to formal letters and even job applications, they need to get the correct spellings in place."

I fail to understand how, if a certain person cannot spell correctly in everyday life, that they should be allowed to produce one document (in this case a CV) to show literacy skills. I believe they need to use correct spelling and pronunciation in all forms of communication.

Maybe remove the 160 character limit for sms based messages to allow for full English to be used?

Maybe 5.5.6 (I might implement this on my server in fact) e-mails which contain more than x amount of spelling errors or abbreviated words like "yea" when "yes" would suffice with the same number of keystrokes.

Maybe a good old speech from a certain Microsoft exec before school everyday? "Spelling, spelling, spelling, spelling, spelling"... and so on and so forth.

In fact, I'm bored of this, where's my BOFH?

Refund? I wouldn't stop there!

I'd go as far as charging them for my time installing the magically-disappearing app and then charging them for my time spent scratching my head, wondering where my $1000 app went.

@Apple, you suck. This is all just a little too underhanded.

Ten of the Best... Bluetooth Headsets

Jamie Kephalas

What I want to see is...

A selection of bluetooth headsets that sit well in a full face bike helmet.

I own a small bluetooth headset (the name and model eludes me) no wider than 15mm, yet still doesn't sit well in my helmet.

Secret of invisibility unravelled by US researchers

Jamie Kephalas

uhm, quite a few flaws.

Granted, you MAY make the tank invisible, but that will only work when it's sat still. Have you ever seen a tank barreling across desert at 50mph? Are they planning on making the dust it kicks up invisible? There's so many things wrong with this, I give up.

How many carbon credits are they buying from other truly green companys?

or is this a case of outsourcing, thus not including 90% of the company?
