PS3 players prefer gaming to bonking

Mart
Thumb Down

misleading?

"Of those respondents in relationships, 32 per cent said they would prefer to play videogames than sleep with their partner."

So how can you put up a headline that implies the general answer from PS3 owners was they would prefer a bonk when actually the higher percent of owners would not prefer a bonk???

sincerely,

offended PS3 owner

(oh and X360 owners weren't asked as they don't have partners!)

HP breaks Japanese excessive packaging record

Mart
Alert

The reason why this is justified!

You lot are numptys, put yourself in HP's shoes for a minute.

*Dispatch 1 thats ONE stick of memory to a guy in Tokyo*

Ok so here's your choices:

Send it as it is in it's little box, that's not even big enough for a delivery barcode let alone an address too, and due to it's size will most likely get lost by in some warehouse for eternity.

Or...

Put said small box into any bigger box that has been lying around for a while and needs using up

I know which I would choose if i were the dispatcher or customer!

0 day patch was ready

according to MediaMolecule (developers for those not in the know) but Sony said no, because people who don't play online won't get it, er sorry but who the hell buys LBP for the single player story, I think you'll find every promo material for LBP bigs up the 'community' aspect

Sony really have let a lot of fans down on this and tarnished Mm's brand

ps a lot of muslim's on the PS community boards say there not offended, afaik only one complained, and the song was written by a muslim, it's on itunes too cant remember name though

Stopped series 2 bashing

The first ep (gay musical) was pur brilliant and i think the other eps did have their moment, as for Denholms son, he is funny and shines out in the german cooking episode, personally i think both series were great, big bang is funny but you just cant beat british humour

also the dinner party is hilarious

Arctic ice refuses to melt as ordered

Mart
Stop

ice melting=larger land mass?

Surely if the ice is melting slowly it would increase in land mass as the top of the ice slowly breaks away and slides down to sit next to the previous ice's base?

Has anyone measured for this? whether the height of ice is steady or dropping?

Blinking to replace remote controls, claims Japanese boffin

Mart
Paris Hilton

Intentionally inducing an autonomic intentional autonomous blink

"Taniguchi told French news agency AFP that his switch can differentiate between deliberate and autonomic blinks."

If your thinknig about blinking you will blink intentionally by accident if that makes sense, aka a thought about not blinking causing you to blink will be slower than a regular autonomous blink thus the machine will skip track. It's like a 3 1/2min staring contest to hear your favorite song!

Paris - cos we all love to stare at her ;)

I've lost count of how many times they've sh*t on us, why can't they release UK service almost instantly I know the US think we all talk like Jeeves but really we are the same language.

This is as stupid as the whole 'UK film premiere 2 months after the US' and the Many Associations of America wonder why people resort to cheating the system
