Re: Nice, if you can watch it
@James 51 - No, House of Cards was accessible without paying extra on your Netflix subs.
Re: share this article
The article is about arcade games... ie, games that could be played outside the house in video arcades, not home computer games. I think a few have missed that point (or, not to be condescending, are too young to know about arcades).
Late 70s through to late 80s... that's when it was all really happening with coin-ops.
Maybe there's a market here for just such a retro arcade place - maybe stocked with MAME cabinets (though I doubt that's entirely legal...)
A pretty good list there. Defender ranks as #1 for me personally and yes, where's Galaxian or even Scramble, though let's face it, too many to mention and to nail into a top 10 easily.
I threw far too many coins into Xevious myself.
Also worth noting, Bradford's National Media Museum has a room with some cabinets and sit-downs in for retro-gaming goodness, and still at the original 10p per game too. They have Defender too... I'll always try to find time to have a blast on that when I'm there.
Re: LG TV
How old is your TV? Mine's a recent LG and have both LoveFilm and Netflix apps on there.
Agree with the cash cow comments. I'm a very low user... I make maybe one call a month, if that, on my landline, and I called up BT to ask about their low-user scheme only to be told it's only for those on certain benefits.
Rumours of Apple looking to buy TomTom. That would pretty much give Apple the "fix" that Apple Maps needs - simply replace it with a TomTom-based app.
Personally, I find Netflix on the Apple TV works like a charm. I've yet to see Netflix/Lovefilm, et all on a Smart TV though.
Since either the last IOS 6 upgrade or iTunes update Home Sharing has completely stuffed up foreme (and many others) on both iPad and iPhone. When selecting the Shared library via the Music app, it sticks at a grey half-moon of death when loading the library. Sometimes it *might* work but you'll only see a small amount of albums, artists, songs. Sometimes it'll work but mostly not.
Disabling Java add-on in IE doesn't actually disable it...
Tested and verified on my own PC... went to Java's test site and it still detected and found it to be working even though it was disabled in IE's add-ons.
Each to their own, of course.
Personally, I found his highlight was Sea Change, (as opposed to the hit and miss of his first two albums - and didn't latch onto anything else other than Sea Change).
As a happy, long-time user of a Toppy 5800 for the last 7 years, this unit may be the one that gets me to upgrade. Sure, the £300 price tag isn't cheap, but considering a Humax twin tuner HD 500GB PVR costs around £230 or so (according to a quick google), I don't think it's too much of a premium to pay.
Triple Play = Triple Fail
Personally, I hate this Triple Play idea. If I wanted a DVD version I'd buy the DVD version on its own. The Triple Play simply allows them to pump up the price over and above what you'd pay for a Blu-Ray version alone.
Is this the epitome of a rage quit?
We use Symantec's Enterprise Vault solution.
Allows you to "vault" emails to the EV server, so they only take up a miniscule 1KB of space in your Inbox, but can be retrieved in full (inc. attachments) on the fly when required.
It also performs de-dupe and we've found up to 70% in HDD space-savings thanks to this as well.
Uninterrupted service would be nice
I'm getting fed up of my iPhone constantly swapping between Orange and Orange-T Mobile signals depending where I am in my house/what direction the phone is pointing. Even sometimes loses all service as soon as I pick it up.
Coverage maps don't really tell that kind of story.
***3. Judicial Review of the CPS process on the grounds that DS Barry Murray managed the investigation (the same officer who refused to investigate when i handed the complaiunt to the City of London Police).***
Wasn't going to be an ubiased investigation if he'd already refused in the first instance. Think you have every right to complain there (amongst other reasons!)
Prrof of account deletion?
Still no email from play.com despite getting spam, (same as frankster).
Considering also closing my account, but wonder if I can request proof that my details are fully gone from their systems. Not so sure trying to login once account has been "deleted" and not being able to still doesn't mean they hold info on me.
Quoted for truth...
He said: "I might have been an idiot by taking the wrong road or by carrying on, but I haven't driven without due care and attention."
If he had paid attention, he wouldn't have got himself into the mess he did.
Pocket Rocket anyone?!
Not so sure...
I'm of the opinion that XP Mode is really only geared towards the more tech-savvy people around, and it's those people who would be up-to-date with knowledge regarding what CPUs support Virtualisation.
Joe Bloggs on the street won't care about XP Mode.
Also, I'm not so sure it's the same as the "Vista Capable" debacle, as I can't see MS (or Intel for that mater) making special stickers/making big bones about the fact Windows 7 supports this XP Mode.
A good thing
It's all in the name of investigative journalism. We see numerous stories of journos testing lapses in airport/rail security (for instance planting a fake bomb - http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2007/jul/24/pressandpublishing.mirror )
