Can you find a reason NOT to have a picture of said semi-naked women?

Could this be the end of PCWorld????

Wouldn't it be a shame if PCWorld came to an end.....ok maybe not, but it might give the smaller PC retailers a chance.

Apple adds 'make the web go away' button to Safari 5

Just tried it...

and was surprisingly impressed.

I do miss the links to the comments at the bottom of the page, but apart from that looked good to me.

Legally - if you have already downloaded the page and this just re-renders it I can't see Apple having a problem

Home Office shifts feet as vetting database looms

Small Wee Jobbie
Big Brother

It's not all bad....really

I couldn't let this pass without commenting - in Ireland we already have this - if you work with children you have to get Garda (Police) clearance. If you want to go with the kids on a scouting weekend, or local football team same procedure.

You do it once, get your form filled in - sent off and if it comes back you can give a copy to which ever club or association or whatever, want to work in a school, got the form ok then etc

If it doesn't come back then no scouts trip for you. End of.

Yes the UK government seem even more adept at loosing the keys to the database doors than the Irish government, but have it no you don't need to have it if you are a parent for your own kids, but you do for other peoples!

It's not perfect - I don't think that you can have a perfect system, but it does mean that if you work with kids that someone somewhere has checked you before signing the form to say off you go.

Apple won't take tablet to September iPod event, says mole

Small Wee Jobbie
Megaphone

unless it IS a pod

OK, hear me out - This is an ipod event, if this thing is an ipod (of sorts) it would make sense that it would be at the September event - that would also mean that if it doesn't appear then it wont be running the iphone os.

Thoughts??

Thumb Down

Great.....Nice one Sony

Just scrapped a Vaio LM - everyone agreed that the motherboard was dead and needed to be replaced! Cost too bloody much to repair, bought another laptop, now I find that Sony may have fixed it for free...I hate Sony....Bastards

GM Volt to deliver three-figure fuel economy

Small Wee Jobbie
Unhappy

But where does the electric come from?

I still can't get my head round the 'electric' car arguement. If you have to burn 'stuff' (coal, oil etc) to create electricity to fill up the cars where is the saving?

Some one help me understand

PC repair techs police dangerous picture law

Small Wee Jobbie
Megaphone

Seen too often.....

lots of comments here, talk of truecrupt, RAM disk cache etc. However most of the PC's left in my shop haven't even got antivius protection - These are basic users, problem creators, fuckwits etc, they can't even understand that stuff gets saved when they visit webpages.

I back-up the shit, do the repair/re-install - stick Picasa on it and ask it to scan the fucking lot - one quick scan through allows me to DELETE the whole lot (no not copy it) - so I don't get the mother of some 15yr old halfwit coming in screaming at me because of what was on the PC when she got it home.

Sorry for the rant, but for all the moral "I would never look at anyone's files" crap you sometimes have to look at a different perspective

Re Too expensive ?

I second that motion - these have moved so far from the original as not to be 'netbooks' anymore...

F1 waves goodbye to KERS

Small Wee Jobbie
Go

Go Go Go...Good riddence

So much money spent on KERS with so little return - and the whole point was that it was to be utilised on normal road cars, now even that is impossible they dropped the white elephant.

Funny thing that it was the FOTO (F1 Teams Ass) that decided and not the FIA
