I liked Firefly and Serenity. Pity the idiots at the network cancelled it.
Re: StreetMap Out of Date
opps... forgot to mention I compared the city centre where roads have been altered or closed and turned into pedestrian area.
StreetMap Out of Date
Just compared StreetMap with Google for my home town and StreetMap is out of date.
One step closer...
... to phasers and disruptor cannons.
As a feature the glasses will come with a Streetview overlay so you know where you are
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.
So it's your fault? :)
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.
Whats next, Horsefly, Housefly and an elephant fly...
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
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.
Since things are done in China more cheaply than Western countries, won't it be a pay cut if you went to work in China?
There should be a new category just for Battleship.... Worst Alien Weaponry
They were the pegs from the board game.
I've not needed to use Java in years.
I wanted to try Minecraft the other month until I realised it requres JRE.
I'll just wait for a native Windows version if they ever create one.
How was this ever awarded?
It's time for Judges to tell patent trolls if they are not using "their invention" they should lose the patent.
"A fine or up to 2 years"... not much of a stiff sentence.
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?
UTuneMe will die off before long.
Can they make it sound like a ZX Spectrum loading a game?
The Judge should order Apple to put the apology link at the top of the page so people can see it and the apology should contain Apple's name and logo to authenticate the the apology.
They changing rep grinding in patch 5.1
If you have a character at least revered with a faction, all your other characters will get double rep for that faction.
They are even going to increase the rep speed from revered to exalted.
Not part of a weather balloon then...
Re: It's all very vague anyway
"Anybody remember what Startrek Stardates were based on?"
Difficult to say. Check out http://trekguide.com/Stardates.htm for calculating Stardates.
Won't be long before you have to be over 18 to use the Internet and must hold a valid Internet License.
iOS and Android
What will this mean for Android?
Will all phone makers using Android be watching their backs?
Should they consider moving to WP8?
It has to be...
...a CGI of Hartnell.
Re: Yeah, RIGHT!!!!!
"Does this mean that Apple have admitted to Reverse engineering??"
It looks like it to me.
And don't companies have something in the small print about not reverse engineering their stuff?
They need to find out which products were reversed engineered and sue Apple.
Re: You STILL get Traffic Management on 30Mbps
I'm on Virgin Media (still on 20Mb, waiting for 60Mb upgrade to happen) and when I downloaded latest Mist of Pandaria beta patch which was 20Gb I was getting 2.4Mb/s then within 30 mins this dropped down to 520Kb/s (that's megabytes and kilobytes not bits as displayed on MoP download).
That's how good VM's traffic shaping is. Over 80% reduction. Took bloody hours to download because of that.
When there was a power cut at the local Asda a few years ago, they searched your trolly for hidden alcohol, then estimate what the trolly is worth... Was £20 for £60+ of shopping.
Lies, damned lies and statistics
This is all I can think of with these companies manipulating the numbers to suit their needs.
Every little helps
I wouldn't use Tesco's for anything other than buying food and that's if I'm near one.
Out-sourcing is bad
"The problem is that IT systems have become vastly more complex. Delivering an e-banking service could be reliant on 20 different IT systems. If even a small change is made to one of these systems, it can cause major problems for the whole banking service, which could be what's happened at NatWest. Finding the root cause of the problem is probably something NatWest is struggling with because of the complexity of the IT systems in any bank."
This is why out-sourcing IT is bad. You fire the permanent staff who knew all the quirks of the system and would have pinpointed the problem in no time at all.
And now the decision to fire IT staff has come back to bite them in the arse.
Facebook has settled a suit that could have seen it compensating 150 billion people in the United "States."
150 billion people? Facbook making people up now to improve their shares?
Re: No photos in the canteen
"She should start drawing it, it would probably make the food more appealing."
In one blog she did draw it because she forgot to bring her camera.
5 million what??
"Richards reckons cloud computing has the potential to deliver €700bn (£564bn) of economic benefit in the five biggest European economies and generate five million new jobs in the five largest member states."
Generate 5 million new jobs??
How can moving your data to the cloud generate 5 million new jobs?
It's more like move the data to the cloud then off source the jobs to India.

Who ever though up this law wants slapping round the head with a wet kipper. They have no clue.
My nephew is 10, he uses it as well as his class mates.
Like the story says so much for the age-verification process during sign up.
"At best they will change the name (no we are not tracking you... we are following you, totally different)."
Both methods can be summed up in one word: Stalking.
Re: Why are we going backwards?
Windows 8 will have classic Windows Desktop as well as Windows 8 Metro.
You will still be able to use normal Windows applications in Desktop mode.
Windows 8 Desktop no longer has Aero so its all grey. Search for the complaints about Visual Studio 11 and how grey that is.
