Re: I miss

Shame they didn't update the original loot to the new item level.

Instead all bosses except Ragnaros gave gold and everyone got a helmet from Raggy plus a new mount.

Windows 10

There could be a shift towards developing mobile apps for Windows 10 when it's available since the desktop will house mobile apps in a separate window and not full screen like Windows 8.1

Yes, Virginia, there IS a W3C HTML5 standard – as of now, that is

John70

"For application developers and industry, HTML5 represents a set of features that people will be able to rely on for years to come,"

The question is will all browser makers follow the same standard and render the site the same way?

Beta Testing

"Clearly, the rebuilt DVLA site wasn't ready for showtime today, so questions have to be asked about why the GOV.UK team waved the wobbly beta website through."

No Reception

SimCity Classic

The new SimCity is out 5th March: http://www.simcity.com/

Shame you have to be online to play it and the game will become useless if and when EA shuts down the servers.

Bioshock Infinite, Devil May Cry, SimCity

John70

SimCity

The only problem with SimCity is that you have to be online to play it.

There has been many forum posts wanting it to be an off-line game like previous SimCities and not be at the mercy of EA when they decide to turn off the servers.

It's the type of game that you would play if there wasnt an internet connection available.

Microsoft blasts PC makers: It's YOUR fault Windows 8 crash landed

John70

When I went to look at Windows 8 at PC World, nearly all laptops with Windows 8 were not touch screen.

To me it looked like the hardware manufacturers just dumped Windows 8 on old hardware (I mean hardware created for Windows 7) to try and sell old stock.

iPhone hangs on in US, Japan, but EVERYONE ELSE bought an Android

If Apple dropped their price by at least £200 for the iPhone 5 then they will get a bigger market share.

At the moment the prices on Apple's site are: 16GB : £529.00, 32GB : £599.00, 64GB : £699.00

Upgrade

I won't be upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 8 at all.

I will wait and see what Windows 9 will be like.

Thats if Microsoft has seen the errors of it's ways and separate the Windows interface and TIFKAM into separate OSes.

Finns look to bring Phorm style stalker ads to UK radio streaming

Whats the point???

If you want local ads on the radio you would be listen to the local radio station.

If you dont want ads it's BBC Radio.

And how many listen to Internet Radio through their phone anyway?
