BOFH: We CAN do that with a Raspberry Pi, but think of the BODIES

lvm

BOFH stories usually are so technically correct, but this time I winced. Never ever ever ever in my life I've met a light sensor which won't retrigger when on. Maybe they do exist - everything's possible, but rarer than OS/2 Warp.

Big browser builders scramble to fix cross-platform zero-day flaw

lvm

Call me paranoid, but it suspiciosly looks like yet another tiny company trying to get some cheap publicity by blowing out of proportions some aspects of misusing a perfectly normal feature. Like, 'if you click on url to infected file it <gasp> dowloads it. And if you click yes a couple of time it OPENS IT AND IFECTS THE WHOLE WORLD!"

Unwearable tech: Five ways IT garb's gone HORRIBLY WRONG

Actually I am quite happy with my cellphone whatch

Probably wouldn't bought it myself as too geeky, but I got it as a present a couple of years ago and use it ever since. It suits me well - I am horribly absent-minded, and this is the phone you cannot leave behind, and I am quite sure that twitter is for twits, so the absence of passable keyboard is not an issue at all.

Disconnection phone scam targets UK consumers

lvm
FAIL

nonsense

This "Because the person who initiates a call is the one to terminate it, a prospective mark is left unable to make a phone call, or even obtain a dial tone." is nonsense.

Toshiba Qosmio X300

lvm

safe and reliable?

Cliff Joseph starts this review with "Toshiba laptops have always been safe and reliable". I beg to differ. As current owner of Satellite P100 I suffered cracked hinges, substandard keyboard, high-quality sound much ehnanced by unidentified parts rattling inside, poor quality power supply socket, paint discolorations and more. I must admit I cannot say nothing agains the reviwed model except that it looks absolutely ghastly, but my next laptop won't be a Toshiba.

BBC to 'reimagine' The Thirty-nine Steps

lvm

we've already had one 'remagination'

the one with Kenneth More, and a later version with Robert Powell wich was quite close to the book and my personal favorite - maybe even better than the Hitchcocks's. Well, good ideas are scarce...

Doctors: Third babies are the same as patio heaters

Tell me something I don't know...

ALL of modern problems - terrorism, depletion of natural resources, high gas prices and congestion charges have one pretty obvious cause: overpopulation. 9 out of 10 people shouldnt' actually be here, one must be blind or belong to intellectual majority not to be able to see it. Of course our democratically elected rulers need more sheep to fleece, not a nicer world to live in so they will never support a courageous policy aimed at actually reducing world population to more reasonable values and rather force us to share what little we have and live the common misery.

I wonder...

whether this website is indeed storing sensitive info or it is just a case of an idiot and form-caching-capable browser?
