Discreet fighting man: Battlefield Hardline

EA

I gave up on the battlefield title after BF3 & Origin a.k.a. Grind your computer to a halt.

Fractured gaming communities with their Add on ethos, separating the rich from the poor.

Last decent one was BF BC2, with the Amazing Vietnam pack.

Vodafone: Can't make calls on our network? Use Wi-Fi

Went Ape shit at three!!

After i read the clauses in what access their app wanted to do on my phone.

Basically was misold a three contract that they had listed as good indoor signal, they offered me the app, went to install it and told them to get buggered, no way was i allowing that sort of invasion onto my device, they ended up sending me the femtocell.

Much prefer the femtocell way of doing things, used to have one with Vodafone, stopped using it for a year and they wont let me use it again :(

Well i will be ditching Vodafone anyway due to poor data deals. Whats the point in having speed if you cant use it.

not sure of the hate for IoT

Would be kinda cool, to go to the kitchen pop your food on and it pings a small pop up on the telly or to your phone letting you know the food is ready, (include 2-3 minute standing time) It would be a useful little feature.

Gamers reach for BFG after Nvidia turns back the overclock

Lionel Baden

Re: /sigh

well you may not like it.

But I for one love the fact, i can easily stream or save a recording of the last 20 Min of gameplay.

Automatic driver settings can be useful, I have not had an issue with them yet.

The point im getting at, just because you don't use it doesn't mean nobody does, some of the features I find very useful.

Whose GPUs let it cruise to record revenues? Nvidia, that's who!

Lionel Baden

well ....

Im surprised that the Reg failed to comment on the issues regarding the 3.5 gig limit on the 970's, might have something to do with good sales, cutting the odd corner is always a great way to improve profits.

That being said, Nvidia had the balls to own up to it at least.

Yes I am a nvidia fanboy, sorry.

FFS the images on your site are getting ridiculous !!

You have now increased the Size of the images to the Fact there is a massive finger being displayed on my screen in the office.

I know march forwards and progress with the times, but then at least give us the option to turn off, or display much smaller images as with this and other images that suggest sexual nature this site is getting to the point I would classify it as NSFW.

Sorry for hijacking your article comments section.

I've said it before.

I still dont know if its right though. If somebody were to go round bricking / attacking every device available online, customer and then in turn the companies might take security a little more seriously !!

Yes if this affected me, i t would be a massive pain and i would but upset and angry, but how long till i directed that anger towards the manufacturer.

Spotify flips bird at Taylor Swift, adds MILLIONS more users

Lionel Baden
Bronze badge

Re: Pricey

I have tried netflix twice now and cancelled it twice.

Spotify does "just work"

You can install it on any number of devices you own, you can download for offline play (dodgy signal area) They have a decent catalogue, although not 100% complete it is pretty damn good.

It is a solution that works for the customer, not the producer.

I don't think Elite was ever designed as a competitor to Eve in any way.

just because they are both in space, does not mean they compete. Elite was designed to be a follow-on of Elite.

Car mods

I have a 2cv, and when I found out that we had a third child on the way, I was faced with a choice.

New 7 seater car......

Nope Lets make my car wider to accomadate 3 car seats :D so rather than just cut in half and add a bit in the middle, The magic of it was that the car is technically no wider as I have flat rear wings now, but gained about a foot extra width at shoulder height in the back due to just pulling the sides of the car out and adding two strips down the side. The rear end is wider though, and the sides taper out over the door area.
