Beta-blocker 'erases' unpleasant memories

richard

I lost three years...

Prescribed Propranalol for regular migraines in my late teens and always put my hazy memories of my college years down to ingestion of... other substances.

Apple to pay $22.5m for scratched iPods

Thumb Down

Naysayers...

It's called 'fit for purpose'. Your phone, watch etc. may get scratched but you expect it not to happen the first time you slide it into a pocket. Cases, half the time, only made the scratching worse when fitting/removing the unit.

Why should a company that deliberately uses shoddy materials, to encourage the 'throwaway culture' we have, be able to get away with it?

By the time millions are using WiMAX or its competitors we'll be wearing our mobiles so they better had stay cool.

I doubt hardware will be the problem at the get go, what exactly do people expect we'll need to download at 100Mbps anyway?

Euro mobe companies mass against cap proposals

They were always going to fight it

Kudos to 3 for standing apart from the crowd.

As a Brit recently arrived in Canada used to (relatively) cheap mobile service I'm chuffed to see the European govt stepping in to protect the consumer. Just recently one of the largest networks here spontaneously began charging for incoming texts - ontop of the already gouge-level pricing for sending them. Apart from a late-in-the-day bleat from a solitary MP which was quickly stifled as 'the market should decide what consumers should pay, not government', nothing was done.
