Dogs and arson feature in top 10 data recovery disasters

kk

I dunno

recovering any data from a wine soaked keyboard seems pretty amazing to me.

And if this is their top ten this only leads me to believe that there are a lot more interersting cases (say a mouse hit with a WMD) where they were infact unable to recover the data from.

Nintendo to limit DSi games with DVD-style region locks

kk
Thumb Up

Chill out ffs

Ok so the comments have been more intelligent than on other sites. At least you guys seem to get the idea that it’s to regulate online pricing.

But despite knowing that and for you all to still bitch about a company trying to protect its financial models seems a bit off.

Things cost differently in different countries, its global economics not a company’s personal vendetta against you to make your life as difficult as possible.

Also DS games which will still probably be developed for for the foreseeable future is still region free so yes you can still buy carts where ever you go, or import them.

Ps: “PSP managed to survive this so long as it was so notoriously difficult and user unfriendly to run game copies”

Obviously has no idea. The psp can be so easily soft modded with a little research and in fact many believe it’s the modding scene that has kept this platform alive through hardware sales. Its certainly not the games!

British drivers face jail for causing death by dangerous driving

kk

Deterrent vs punishment

The shift to sentencing being related to the outcome of you actions (ie if death was caused) rather than from just the action itself I think is due to the need for a deterrent.

People do drive dangerously and in some cases causes death.

Everyone thinks they can multitask while driving and while I'm sure many can, not everyone is able to for example light up without breaking concentration. Sadly we are usually the worse people to decide which camp we belong in.

If people could be trusted we wouldnt really need any laws.....
