Rail Gun mounted on Rocket sled?

Now that would be cool, fire the railgun once the sled is up to mach 9 - whats that give you - a projectile going at mach 18.5 or thereabouts :)

Microsoft hawks Home Server

Answering the xbox question......

"(WTF did they restrict the XBox 360 from playing stuff such as DivX?!)."

Do a quick google for "Transcode 360" - freeware program that lets you stream DivX to your xbox 360 in real time.

To comment on the article, I agree - I'd much rather have a TB of NAT for £150 and spend the extra on desktop upgrades.

Cut-price laptops coming forth

Michael Davis

This has to be a con!

4-6 weeks for delivery? Only 3 news articles on their website for the last 2 years, all of which re. this laptop and their 'manufacturing plant'? Swedish company but the only contact address is in Kent?

If its too good to be true it probably is........

Standard 550ml tin?

Surely you meant 330ml tin? even a 'big' lager can is only 500ml as opposed to the normal lager size of 440ml and yes I drink a lot :-p

Swiss data protection laws?

Does this mean you could carry out PC based activities that would be classed as illegal here in the UK and not be at risk of your PC/files being siezed?

Vodafone explains N95 crippling

Michael Davis

They have a point.......

Although I work for a compititor with far lower 'unlimited' data access rates not every customer has an interest in data use, lots of people just want the new kid on the block phone and unfortunately these users are the ones that inadvertantly activate a data feature on the phone and them wonder why they have a data bill for a few hundred pounds!

Email clients on phones with the ability to check every x minutes for new mail catch out lots of ppl as just connecting then disconnecting, even although no server details are present, uses a couple of Kb, every 5 minutes, for a month at £7.50 a Mb - £130 if memory serves from refunding it to customers!

So it could be argued that Vodafone are being responsible as tech savvy users can add a skype client to the handset if they so wish but they are protecting their non tech users from a large suprise bill because uncle john told them that skype calls are 'free'
