... what you're all saying is that Hollywood just produces crap these days.
"We were also curious about an issue parents raised. The pupils appear to receive nothing from the commercial exploitation of their original work, while the charity receives 20 per cent. "So where does the other 80 per cent go?" asks Leighton"
Did anyone ask Prince Charles where the other 80% is going to?
Everything else is made in China, so why not space travel...
As I was reading the El Reg version of Top Gun 2, I was imagining the fight with the F-35 and X-47B.
You've got a Hollywood Blockbuster there.
I wonder if Anonymous will go after the creators of ZeuS
Hope they put in a good explanation on how the moon is able to travel from planet to planet.
Maybe Microsoft would have better success by dropping the name Windows from Windows Phone 7.
When people see the name Windows they think bloat, viruses, etc.
May be call it Metro OS and the handset mPhone. Wonder if Apple will get upset with that.
It's priority access to the perv scanners.
They must be in ultra-hardcore guilds.
We have scheduled pee breaks for our raids.
I'm surprised this wasn't already happening, Windows 8 and Phone 8 both using Metro interface both based on WinRT core.
Lets hope the movie is not written by those that do the TV version.
I've heard of the name Kardashian being branded about but didn't know the story.
Everytime I heard the name I keep thinking of Cardassians.
Thanks Rob for telling us the story.
Now we know Kim made a porn tape, got onto the internet and now their mother is pimping them out for "reality" T.V.
Are these MPs complaining because some 8yo is killing them on multiplayer and making it like they "care" about our young?
Has it been a year already?
I still got my Donkey Kong Game & Watch. Must replace the batteries on it...
A 10 man raid against Ragnaros in cars doing drive-by shootings and the odd fire truck to put out fires.
Software Patents should be banned.
All it is software interpretating the movements on the touchscreen to decide whether or not to unlock.
And patenting movement should definately be banned.
Is it powered by Mr. Fusion?
At the moment I don't see any reason to create any business applications in Metro style.
Most companies will just lock out Metro and keep Windows classic desktop for their applications.
Metro apps "suspend" when they are no longer in focus.
This seems like a backward step especially when you are using a multitasking OS.
The rules are if the application takes more than 15 seconds to load, it is killed off.
When your application is notified it's going to by suspended you have 5 seconds to save any work. If you do not save the work in time, you lose the data.
So far these times are fixed and not configurable.
Do RIM offer a 99% availablity?
No company can guarentee 100% availability.
If so that means out of 365 days of the year they are saying that their service could be unavailable for 3.5 days (84 hours).
Co-operative Insurance are already offering discounted insurance for under 25's if they have a black box fitted.
They had this scheme for some time now.
Are they saying that if the GPS malfunctions on their boat they are screwed?
Maybe they need to dust off their compass and do it the old fashion way.
Good practise for them in case of such event.

"... whoever without authority makes, uses, offers to sell, or sells any patented invention, within the United States or imports into the United States any patented invention during the term of the patent therefor, infringes the patent," see 35 U.S.C. 271 (a).
That one word "uses" could open a right can of worms.
It's not clear on it's meaning. You could take it as the individual user of a product.
For example Apple sueing all users that use Samsung products that "infringe" on Apple patents and visa versa.
Next they will have bras on their heads and hook up a Barbie doll. Result: Kelly Le Brock
VM have UK Call Centres???
Just send metal theives into orbit, they can scrounge for the scrap metals.
...as thick as two short planks...
...remake IV, V and VI. It's pretty close to a remake with all the added CGI, etc.
After all Hollywood are remaking films that are not as old as Star Wars.
You will find that there are Sharia Courts in the UK. I think the total is 100 courts.
When will software companies learn that no matter what DRM you put into a product it will be cracked.
All this will do is piss off the people that bought the game especially if their Internet connection goes down.
Dealing with Indian call centres is a pain in the arse.
Companies operating in the UK should be forced to have call centres in the UK and employ people that can speak English clearly.
There are plenty of towns in the UK with high unemployment that the calls centres can be based. At least it will get people back to work and government will get more in taxes.
Looks like the tech companies will have to come up with a new storage media to replace Blu-ray that can put a full extended version on LotR onto 1 disc instead of splitting it over 2 discs.
"We recommend folks look at upgrading to Windows 7, which is the fastest selling operating system in history, selling over 400 million licences to date," wrote LeBlanc.
There is a difference between licenses sold and licenses in use.
Does this figure include OEMs who's computers are still in the showroom waiting to be sold?
The problem I see Google+ is that it's another way to profile you to sell your soul to advertising. And all the info that is on Facebook is Google's wet dream to know everything about you.
Once the next scandel brings down The Sun On Sunday, it might also take The Sun with it.
wasn't it writetyper for Jet Set Willy?
...and good luck in your new venture. You will be missed amonst these pages.
"The only way users will willingly switch is if there is a must-have service that they can't access with ipV4 and I can't see that happening any time soon"
Get Facebook to use IPv6 only. That will get a lot of end users switching over.
There is mention of a new file system called Protogon.
... that cannot be defeated by the Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver.
I'm with you dotdavid. I will not be getting one as long as there are "additional" fees for using the extra features on the box.
I won't even be paying up front. When my existing box "malfunctions" I'll demand a replacement for free or I'll cancel my subscription.
The logo still looks crap from the day it was unveiled.
...you are still limited to the speed the host can send data to you.
Not if they are traffic shaping which they do at peak times.
Like with previous Medal of Honor games (Allied Assault, Spearhead, etc) for the PC
1. Can we set up a dedicated server running on our own hardware or rented hardware that players can join ?
2. Can the players create their own custom maps ?
3. Can the players mod the game (like freeze tag, etc) ?
After the farce with Modern Warefare and the absolute crappy IWNet for P2P multiplayer game play (which has put me off buying anymore Activision/Infinity Ward games) I am hoping that all the questions for Medal of Honor is yes.
If not then EA Games needs to have a good think about the PC gamers.
After all it was the custom map makers and modders that made the orginal MoH series one of the best FPS games in years even when Activision tried to copy it with their first Call of Duty series.
...I use "There is an application for that" ??
This trip to the US of A must have blown the entire season's budget.
Guess they will make up for it by shooting all the other episodes on the strrets of Cardiff instead in the studio on the sets of alien worlds.
"This view is not shared by professor Stephen Hawking, The Australian notes. He recently warned: “I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet."
Has Professor Hawking been watching Independence Day?
I for one will not be watching this film.
I will keep my pennies for something that is worth watching. Cinema prices are bloody expensive.
I hope this will become a very expensive flop.
