Watch Dogs: Eat, sleep, hack, repeat

Geeks and Lies

Seems a fine game on the 360

Played a good 3-4 hours last night, really enjoying it so far, graphics are superb for the 360 reasonably immersive and not too easy to make you bored! Well worthy of 4 of 5 stars.

McKinnon family awaits final, final extradition decision

Geeks and Lies
Grenade

So lets say....

Subject A, an American broke into your house and messed the whole place up looking for a UFO picture.

He then admitts he knew it was wrong to break into your house and mess all your stuff up looking for something that probably didnt exist in the first place,

Would you be happy with him not being arrested?

Not being bought back to the UK to answer for his crime?

Not being charged with breaking and entering?

Not being charged for invasion of privacy?

Yeah, thought so!

NHS accused of politicising health records

Geeks and Lies
WTF?

@ AC what a crock of...

Seriously, why does everyone have to go on about the NHS having Windows??!?!?!?

You have to understand the NHS has a MASS user base all of which are general Joes in the technical sense and you have to give them something they are already semi familiar with, giving them all Linux, OSX or whatever would only exasperate issues AND spending as all users would have to be trained to use it, and dont give me the "its really easy to use line" i'll grant you the likes of fedora and ubuntu are moving more and more into a user friendly world but still lack teh familiarity of our favourite OS!

HOWEVER to validate your argument with a little merit, a company which for the purposes of this conversation shall remain Anonymous does already cater for the needs of most of the NHS (and is already in double digits worth of trusts) is a web based system that whilst is only fully compatible with IE at the moment could possibly be moved onto other browser platforms allowing the use of a different OS, i would dread to think what the development cost would be but suffice to say it is possible, but no one has ever requested it!

Faxing patient records around? You cannot be serious!!!!

NASA: Extraterrestrial sample holds ingredient for alien life

Geeks and Lies
Grenade

This hardly proves life is common!

But more that is probable! Still a great find to support the hypothesis that life outside of our solar system is out there. It’s extremely arrogant of us to believe otherwise in my opinion! I won’t be ordering my tinfoil hat just yet though! Well done to the boffins at NASA for the confirmaion :-)

Patients gain right to scrub e-records from NHS database

Geeks and Lies
Thumb Down

How daft....

I mean really! Why would someone be so paranoid as to have their actual medical records removed! Also once they have been viewed then they are not deleted but archived due to legal reasons. Well newsflash people. Creating them puts a view on them so surely that means that nothing will be deleted only archived. Or if you take the view that creating them does not mean they have been viewed then what’s the point in creating them at all as no one would be allowed to look so why not just chuck all your paper work through the shredder and have your doctor continually guess what is wrong with you! IDIOTS! When is someone going to make common sense available on the NHS!

Seriously considering investing in Tin Foil Hat business.....

Whilst it would be great to finally answer the question of life on other planets, but sadly i feel any race advanced enough to get here in the first place would be sufficiently equiped to deal with avoiding a windturbine!
