Isn't it specifically the phosphoric acid in colas that does that? It's certainly been linked to osteoporosis in women.
Re: Dyslexic analysis disorder
The same way everyone else does when reporting statistical findings.
"Dr Chen is indisputably a real doctor and a proper boffin - as opposed to the larger and less distinguished category of "scientist" - being an MD as well as a PhD."
How dare you Sir! Such an inflammatory statement just caused this doctor* to splutter his delicious and health-giving juice of the naughty bean across the desk.
*PhD only and you can cram it where tech news hacks traditionally cram things.
Re: Asus PA248Q
1080p is fine for me. Glad my eyes are rubbish.
"and I still don't understand why we need 3g tablets when wifi will link up to your mobile hapilly.."
Dunno about you, but that's expressly verboten on my contract. I wouldn't have a network contract for a tablet anyway, but tethering isn't always an option.

Re: I want to live in Bob's world
Some of them cost more than my total Christmas budget.
£40 phone case a throwaway gift?
I'm clearly in the wrong line of work.
Re: Yay, stocking fillers on the 19th December.
Don't worry, there'll be plenty of these in the shops. No one else will want them.
Indeed. These are a bit pricier than the usual chocolate oranges.
They can sue each other for money if they must, since it largely seems to balance out, but full bans are bad for the consumer.
Re: And you think privacy is invaded NOW?
One day they'll tell us they "like us", and then we'll really be in trouble.
Re: But will it help Arthur Dent ...
No, but then he's just an ignorant monkey that doesn't know any better.

Re: Out of Control?
I wouldn't have thought its course would deviate unless it was spraying something to give it thrust.
Re: "is thought to house a camera"
Well the US used to dump it in the sea and go pick it up. Of course NK aren't allowed out, and they can hardly knock on anyone else's door to ask for their ball back.
Re: Meanwhile Britain
Ah, so you're Lewis.
So that's where all these down votes came from.
Shoebox?!? Get a load of His Majesty living in a shoebox!
I'd sell my left knee to live in a shoebox!
Assuming you're not joking: RTFA.
The wounds were already open. The bandages were holding them closed in lieu of any sutures.
This is seriously horrible.
Apple's word can not be called into question. The town must be moved at once!
Re: The best tablet for Christmas
Re: What about the no-names?
A few unheard of brands sneak into some of these articles, but they're always crap in some way or another. If there are any good ones, I wouldn't mind knowing about them.
Oh but Kobo, or any other obscure e-reader-tablet-hybrid, don't count. They're all shite.
You need massive hands, apparently.
It's a change from the iThing reviews, which always get given to the one person in the office who loves them.
They always end up with 90% scores and reading like Stephen Fry's blog.
Re: more than apps
That would be anything that's not m4a.
Re: Troll symbol
I'm starting to think this whole badge thing was a bad idea.
Re: tablet computers be shit
Ladies and gentlemen, please don't feed the trolls.
Re: "thin crust, no cheese"
Although analysis failed to identify a terrestrial analogue, which may cast doubt on the theory that the moon was formed from cheese ejected from the Earth.

You don't have to be in a wheelchair to be disabled.
Re: Driving licences?
I don't know. Can you think of any disabilities that might make reading a website difficult, but not make you an unsafe driver?
If yes, then yes.
Re: Even better bargain
No. There's no excuse for reading the Mail.
"We break legs, because we care"
Well, those tiny tweezers don't last for ever you know.
At least if they're wrong they don't have to worry about going the way of those Italian seismologists.
But Mother wasn't evil. It worked exactly as intended.
The heart of the problem
We all know this, but the heart of the problem is clearly the US patent office. Based on the approved patent, they may well have a case. The problem is that only a moron would have approved it in the first place.
How the hell do we come back from this state of craziness?

Re: Do they really play this to review it?
Most of Ubisoft's recent games (and older ones that have been patched) just require a net connection to activate it and then you can make it available for off-line use. It's more like Steam now.
Mind you, I bought From Dust in a Steam sale and wasn't actually able to activate it, since their bloody servers went down that weekend. I guess they must have been surprised that more than two people wanted to login on the same Saturday.
Re: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
"So if I take your car but give after few days no theft happened right"
But then we just come back to the old question: if I made an identical copy of your car without actually taking it away from you, is that theft?
Re: I don't know what else is wrong with this??
We know she failed to download it. I agree that we don't know all the details, but when do we ever?
Re: No sale here, either.
The way things are going, you're never going to get a tablet.
Re: Media consumption?
My wife does and she's hardly a nerd and is only occasionally "on the train".
Except that this is a very light, very small and therefore very portable laptop that could be used almost anywhere. Using it exclusively on a desk would be a waste. I see no point in touch screens for desktops though.
A good machine for conferences, I'd say. You see MacBook Air users all over the place and this is very similar.
You must be able to find a similarly priced, higher spec. alternative if you don't bother with the touch screen. Surely?
Unless touch capability doesn't add as much to the price as I would guess.
Re: Christ (oops!) bloody religion again???
"Most non-Muslims who think they've "read the Koran" are wrong."
You mean, most non-Muslims who think they've "read the Koran" are considered to be wrong by those who believe it to be more than just a book.
Re: PC Games?
Well, only three or four of them are the typical mutli-platform, built for consoles but ported to PC, type of games. Some of the list aren't on anything but PC, and X-COM may be on all the big platforms but it's a PC game at heart.
Re: League of Legends
Yes, more or less.
