OGC cracks one off on with new logo

James Woods

But was it good value?

As the OGC are responsible for getting value out of government spending, would it be possible to know how much the re-branding cost the tax payer? Was this good value? Was it needed? I was quite happy with the old one!

Dimm memory requires pants packaging

DIMM is in fact a direct Japanese translation for 'object requiring substantial over packaging, thus rendering its appearance larger than it is’. This has led to a range of DIMM underpants being created in Japan, which have proved exceedingly popular amongst Japanese men.

Isn't everything on the web true?

Record industry refused Jammie Thomas appeal

Amount should be commensurate to the value of the theft.

You can buy a track on the web for 70p so the punishment should be relative to the value. If I stole a snickers bar for 70p I would be asked to refund the value. In this case 24 songs at 70p should be fined £16.80 and perhaps a hundred pounds for the suffering to the record company.

It’s a shame the courts a blocked up with such trivial cases. The large companies should remember that the harder they squeeze the more grains will fall through their hands.

A better solution would be for the industry to accept that we are in a different age and innovate their own products to make them so attractive and so valued that people would want to spend their money with the company and not to download for free.
