It's a sign of todays rampant greed when only 6.5% growth is being touted as impending failure.

Give them a choice
Okay, if they want to block users modifying old games to keep them going then they should be legally obliged to support their online games; If i have bought a game with an online option then they should keep the servers for that game running for the next 75years until copyright runs out. Gaming took a downhill turn when the shysters in suits took over, they really do want to eat their cake and still have it don't they.
Why wouldn't the USA ignore privacy laws? They ignore all other laws when it suits them.
Is this the same Sony that recently suffered a major hack and ran about bleating that hackers were evil and it wasn't Sonys fault?
Isn't the velocity as important than the size?
Does this apply to politicians as well, or are they exempt?
Re: UK Govt are idiots
Not so stupid, I have little doubt they will have exempted themselves from this.
Have they actually tested this on roads that are NOT wide multi lane roads? How about country roads or built up European towns?
Re: The US justice system...
Try broken and corrupt.
It is now too late to stop the damage from climate change, the USA preferred to argue about causes rather than solutions. While we try to limit the effects we should be looking at new ways of dealing with hurricanes/floods and droughts.
iPlayer is usually ok; the real farce is virgins own TVanywhere service, it's a worthless buffering mess for me and i'm on 100mb.
Is this 2 way or is it designed to only benefit the USA as most of these treaties are?
The problem is that common sense takes a back seat when a shyster lawyer sees a loophole.
LG suck dong
I would never pay extra for another LG 'smart' TV, paid over £100 extra for one a few years ago and LG removed almost every useful app one by one, it now doesn't support any paid for streaming service.
The idea of a new zx speccy isnt bad, the problem is SOOOO many games are going to be unplayable on this since its missing all the keys; you're gonna sit at Press F1 screens forever unless it utilises some lame onscreen keyboard overlay.
Hopefully this pathetic loser will spend the rest of a very long life in a harsh prison.
Why are people surprised that a bunch of so called experts were wheeled out within hours? Modern news is more interested in being first with a story than being accurate.
Unfortunately you can't blame the companies for filing stupid obvious patents, if they don't a competitor will; the problem is the worthless US patent office.
The way the government continues to push this tech that no-one wants you would almost believe they might have friends involved in DAB process somewhere. It's a worthless technology for anyone who doesn't live in a well supported big city.
This seems to be US policy now, all foreigners have no rights and international law must bow to what bought US judges say is legal; and these are the people who hold themselves up as the example of truth and justice the rest of us should strive towards.
The problem is the BBC have given complete scripting power to a couple of people who are nowhere near as clever as they think they are; I've said it before but the writer really needs to get someone honest to proofread the stories and point out all the stupidity and plot holes.
There's also the point that some of todays pop music is mastered with the expectation it will be played back on shitty headphones/speakers to its clipped to hell while they to boost parts of the audio.
Air rage will go through the roof if they allow people to use phones as they like.
I suspect his team players are within their rights to tell him to go f*ck himself.
Re: OnePlus One
my lumia has fm radio.
Zynga destroyed farmville through greed, they just kept adding more farms until it became impossible to play the game without paying for speedups.
If a monkey can't hold copyright then it should be down to...whos camera was it? This seems to be more about a growing trend for big online presences to think they're above the laws us peasants have to adhere to.
Re: Smart as they are, just not smart enough to do it on their own.
Aren't the germans considered the best at making cars that actually work rather than looking nice.
You see a lot of US bashing because the US makes it so easy.
nematoad: You're missing the point, bad things are only bad when it's NOT the USA doing them; If America kidnaps and tortures someone thats fine, if someone else does it...they are evil. If the USA decides that privacy laws and human rights don't matter then that's fine, as long it it's only 1 way.
That's 4 words.
Aren't these services needed for the lost/stolen phone system to work?
Is it standard for apple to say tough titty? or do they usually accept responsibility?
They've always used the same lies to excuse it; Adobe were honest about it a few years ago, they charge a lot more in the EU...because they get away with it.
There needs to be a level of stupidity that warrants losing your license.
If it's like any other agreement it will only go one way, to the USAs benefit.
Arnold: Isn't part of the problem that the Jews believe they have a divine right to certain lands because god said they could have them? A flimsy reasoning if ever there was one.
True, it's an illegal occupation interspersed with offers of peace talks, which inevitably end with the Israelis building more illegal encampments, then wondering why the people they are killing are being rude to them.
This really should be listed under #firstworldproblems.
It's sad but most people today seem to have given up listening to quality music in favour of convenience.
Facebook users are nothing but a commodity to be exploited by zuckerberg, i don't think he even tries to claim otherwise these days.
I wonder which one is fighting for more funds to continue their research?
He would be hard pressed to make them worse than the prequels.
This is how all US systems function isn't it? The one who can spend the most wins.
building a case
The only reason for such stupidity would be so they could go to court and provide hard details of the cost/damage done; there would be absolutely no medical/hygiene reason for wasting so much water.
I find it quite sad how many people will spend all their time at an event trying to film it on a shitty phone/tablet camera instead of actually enjoying themselves. "yay im just back from the U2 concert".."was it any good?"..."no idea, i was too busy filming it"
lack of content
I tried Netflix for a while until i realised that about 80% of my searches came back with no content. One of these services really needs to start stocking up on older stuff.
Re: Increasing the wrong thing
I am willing to pay for it after having cheap WD green drives die on me, now im onto the WD blacks.
Increasing the wrong thing
4tb is enough in 1 drive, too much when the hdd dies. Maybe it's time to put a freeze on capacity and work on the reliability.
Doesn't this mean when the super brittle glass of your ipad cracks, you need to replace the tft as well? even if that would have been undamaged before.
