Noooooo, holy crap this is bad news, I've been an extremely happy O2 home broadband & phone customer for 3 years, can't fault them, everything was perfect.
Sky will cock it all up for sure..........I'm off to ZEN
Re: Not in the UK I don't think.
Are you qualified to judge each system considering you have never used a PS3?
I have 3 PC's, 1 Mac, 1 Wii, 1 XBOX and 3 PS3 systems in the house.
Why 3 PS3's? To meet family demand.
Not a good article really
A poorly informed and bias article. I'm used to better from El Reg
Re: Stir Fried Chicken / Egg Foo Yung
No, just checked, like most things these days it's now owned by the Chinese (Geely Automobile)
Chicken / Egg
I'm sure Ford own Volvo, so will they / won't they patent it?
Game stores are a last resort for me too. They are expensive, everything is top price, massive fail if you expect to stay in this market sector, you need to be able to compete against online retailers and supermarkets.
Another big fail is their property management, it's all too familiar to see 2 or 3 game stores within close proximity to each other in the same mall, town or city. They do indeed own GameStation, therefore, in my local mall there are 4 game group stores within two minutes walk of each other. I wonder why their rent bill is so high?, doesn't take a genius does it?
It's good to see Paul Heckles doing the flying, wish it was me :-)
Step away from the keyboard.........now!
Nothing wrong with the fleabay search engine if you know how to use it (it's not rocket science).........stop tinkering with yourself eBay before something drops off and dies.
Sony: PlayStation Vita will win gamers back from tablets, phones...
No it won't
Close but no cigar....
I fly RC aircraft and have 20 years experience, if this thing has actually made it into the air I doubt it would be able to stay up any more than 20 minutes at best.
A 10 minute flight time is more likely or this kind of airframe.
The number of computers I have seen over the past 6 months where Chrome has hijacked and taken over their computer, admittedly installed by the dim-witted owner where Chrome got installed while they were updating Google Earth or some other program. At least Firefox hasn't employed this lame land grabbing tactic yet.
I will still be using Firefox, I just don't trust Google.
Give me a doctorate
An asteroid/meteor strike would have vaporised anything living, dead and fossilised.
Whatever hit the earth wouldn't have bouned off the surface, it would have destroyed the surface and below, hence nothing to find there.
Most of my HDMI cables were bought for £1 on eBay and they work just as well as 'branded' ones that came with kit.
I just love telling customers in the stores to put down that £30 cable and get one online.
Tis' great to make a salesmans day even worse.
Oh no Lewis
Poor journalism again Lewis, stand in the corner until home time.
When will people start calling the Eurofighter Project aircraft by its assigned name 'Typhoon'?
Amazing that their network status page is all in the green.
Oh come on Lewis not again, just another moan about Eurofighter, there are bigger fish to fry, time to move on don't you think?
There are documented official facts that members of the crew on board Challenger were not dead or incapacitated, if you read my post correctly you would have realised this.
As for the 'tape', yes, they are digitally recorded, there is no tape, it is stored onto memory due to less weight, cost and more importantly takes less to power.
Yes, those reports are fascinating, my interest is purely that the truth be reported as it certainly wasn't the case for Challenger, the truth had to be fought for from many sides both internal and external to NASA. Many of the populous do not realise this.
I for one would not want to see video of the crews fate, nor do I believe that anything like that should be made public, however the truth should always be laid out first time without question.
No, I can't say that I am "a rubber necked twit", are you?
I just wanted to highlight that NASA should be transparrent, not bow to political pressure for anything and ask if we can believe what they report.
My hat is already off and saluting those that aim to "slip the surly bonds of earth".
What of the others?
and what will happen to the recovered parts of Challenger and Columbia?
NASA reported that the crew of Challenger got 'vaporised' upon the explosion of the external fuel tank, unfortunately that was not the case. The crew compartment was intact and took just under 3 minutes to freefall back into the ocean. The astronauts, still strapped into their chairs hit the ocean at 200mph, which had a devestating crushing result for the compartment and it's contents. Human remains were found weeks later and recovered, together with the compartment. It is not known when the crew died, most were probably unconscious and died when they hit the water. It's worth noting that PEAP packs (personal air tanks) were activated, used for over 2 minutes and gated switches had been moved in the cabin post explosion.
Brevard County were not permitted to the autopsy of the remains, which is unusual and unlawful, their eventual public invitation was revoked shortly before it happened on a USAF base near to the Cape.
As for Columbia it's interesting to see the video of the cabin that was recorded during their re-entry. Normally this camera runs for the entire phase of re-entry, showing the cabin and crew. The recovered video runs normally but stops a few minutes before the break up.
NASA reported that the rest of the 'tape' was 'destroyed'...............really?
The police officer suspected him doing 69 in the 55 zone too
Thumb drives with a copy of the Bill of Rights encoded into the block device is genius
.....have they thought about the rolled up newspaper?
Have you not heard of TARANIS then ?
"Taliban develop large pins to pop US baloons".
What kind of noob moves a device whilst a CD/DVD is spinning?
Let alone knocking a device with a spinning hard disk in it?
FAIL for people who don't understand gyroscopic effects on spinning objects, what do schools teach these days? "How to be a noob" I guess.
