Thumb Down

Not worth it ?

This doesn't seem a very good buy to me.

My FujiFilm S8000 has a 18x optical zoom and an electronic viewfinder. Sure, it's only 8mp and the pictures are probably even noisier than these, but it only cost me £125 six months ago.

Legality ?

Surely this will be ruled illegal by the European courts at the first opportunity ?

UK.gov prepares for filesharing fracas

Robbie Simpson

Not just music

Surely the majority of P2P traffic is no longer music-based - video and software are just as widely shared and have much larger file sizes. It is simply that FACT and BSA don't have the right lobbyists ?

Apple files 3D-interface patent

Stop

Prior art...

This seems to be very much like 3DNA, which I played with several years ago and seems to have died in 2004. It was fun to use for a little while, but it certainly did not improve my productivity...

Entire class fails IT exam by submitting in Word format

Robbie Simpson

Very fond of the web at Edexcel...

Note that they aren't actually any text formats on Edexecel lists, with the nearest thing being html.

So there are no accepted formats designed for print display.

Microsoft preps IE 8 for the web-challenged

Robbie Simpson

Microsoft...

So how come Firefox, Opera et all can correctly render pages designed for old versions of IE, but the new version cannot ?
