The Great Spotify Mystery

Lyndon Hills
Thumb Down

@Im Confused

Yes MTV and iTunes are successful but for the music business they are disasters. Music biz paid to make music videos and gave them away regarding them as promotional items. MTV plays said free material and make millions.

iTunes at least generates some money for the music business, but Apple/Jobs control the prices charged, bundling, formats, etc. Music Business has lost control of it's own products through iTunes.

Value of sex-offender register?

If this is what it takes to have your name added, then soon everyone will know that being labelled a sex-offender means absolutely diddy-squat. Whatever value the register might have had will be reduced to zero.

fictitious crossing

And in Ludlow and Bridgnorth, lorries are being sent to an entirely fictitious crossing over the River Severn.

It would seem that the problem will solve itself in time, then.

ID and Passport Service brings in ad men

Lyndon Hills
Thumb Down

Why?

<quote>James Hall, IPS chief executive, said: "IPS needs an agency to support the development of a creative strategy targeting a variety of audiences across all our work, including the National Identity Scheme</quote>

Why do they need an ad agency? If you want a passport it's not as if there's any one else you can go to. While I don't think anyone actually wants an Id card, again if you do there is no choice.

ICO raids and shuts builder blacklist firm

@Daffy

Yeah, I think they also claimed that the DPA didn't apply as their records were on paper and not in a database.

Pirate

14 GB of music?

I've just been reading the articles about the pirate bay, so the comment about the music files jumped out immediately. Surely this device is the perfect accessory for a music pirate, being easily pocketable and capable of holding gazillions of pounds worth of 'hot' music.

Best ban it.

@dudeskin

I can only see it helping convict terrorists AFTER whatever "act of terror" has happened.

I'm not sure it's possible to convict BEFORE the act has occured. You can't reasonably convict someone for thinking of doing something..

Not an American, but I would have hoped that religious instruction in the workplace was outlawed by the constitution. I expect this would also rule out Sunday schools, which would be no great loss...

Are iPhone users just tight?

Lyndon Hills
Thumb Down

iStore spend

Well I'd never heard of App Cubby, although I have now, so maybe they'll add another spike to their graph. Sadly for them I don't drive a car, so I don't need their app.

As someone who browsed to the iStore yesterday, purely on the off chance that there might be something interesting, I'd say it's not that iPhone owners are tight but that it's hard to find anything that way. I'm not prepared to keep paging through lists of apps, so unless I read about them in the press, or they're in the picks or hot boxes on the store, I won't even know they exist. There must be a review site somewhere, or else that's a business opportunity staring me in the face....

For the record I bought 2 games, one for 99c and one for 5 dollars.

Round and Round

In the discussion over the Scorpions album cover, the IWF spokesperson said they consulted the police for advice. Here we have the police suggesting the reader contact the IWF.

Since no-one else seems to know, i vote that we all send our dodgy images to the Ministry of Justice, where that nice Mr Straw can check them personally.
