Bitcoin or bust: MtGox files for bankruptcy protection

bex

Re: If those keys, err coins, resurface again...

The way bitcoin works if you have the keys to the coins they are yours with nothing to trace them back to mtgox so yes they are worth something, Scan computers will build you a kick as PC with them for one thing.

The UNTOLD SUCCESS of Microsoft: Yes, it's Windows 7

bex

yes but

I really don't like the Modern UI (or whatever they are calling it now) on a desktop, it's a mess.

That said if you circumnavigate the tiled interface the new desktop style makes windows 7 look old.

SCRAP the TELLY TAX? Ancient BBC Time Lords mull Beeb's future

bex

some what archaic idea but,

I am not a big fan of dishing out £145 plus but commercial TV is mostly awful so I guess it's business as usual.

The Tories have been goig on about this for decades but as per usual they will do nothing.

Tell us we're all doomed, MPs beg climate scientists

bex

it's complicated

CO2 traps heat in the atmosphere that is a fact. The rest is so complicated a definite answer to what will actually happen will only come when it's happened. More weird weather more of the time probably.

sky broadband are they still awful?

My job is mostly home pc support and I have had dealings with sky broadband over the years and it was always a trial on the phone. With the onset of adsl2 and2+ people seem to have less connection problems these days so I have not had to talk to Sky for a customer for years.

My question is is Sky BB customer support as bad as always or have they got their finger out?

Don't crack that Mac: Almost NOTHING in new Retina MacBook Pros can be replaced

bex

it's the difference in £300-£500 and well over a £1000, that's why.

Tablets are more vulnerable and less likely to last as long anyway

the thing I am most concerned about is the battery, my macbook is 2.8 years old and according to the menu bar needs replacing, so I will, it's a bit of a faff as there is a tri-wing screw but easy enough apart from that. One this after 3 years the macook would be on it's way to useless.

Surface 2 and iPad Air: Prepare to meet YOUR DOOM under a 'Landfill Android' AVALANCHE

bex

On the Hudi

It's £119, for that price it's very well built is somewhat chunky.

It seems fast enough and is mostly uncluttered apart for the understandable tesco soft key.

It is hard to work out which way up it is and so find the power and volume controls.

It seems perfectly fast enough and nnlike my new nexus 7 the touch screen is responsive

If you want something reasonably cheap that is not an expensive disaster when the kids bugger it up

the Hudi will do nicely

Peak Apple: Has ANYONE at all ordered a new iPhone 5c?

the fingerprint unlock is a nice feature but not enough to jump on the ios bandwagon, I have a super sweet deal with t-moble so unless I bought an iphone outright it's a no go for me

Mozilla to auto-block unwanted Firefox add-ons

bex

following ie 9

internet explorer has this feature, I assume Mozilla thought now thats a good idea. They need the feature that ie 9 has that any addon that slows the startup by more than 0.2 of a second throws up a dialogue asking if you want to disable it.

Apple ships removal tool for Mac-menacing malware

bex

safari

Having a windows pc being used to firefox and coming to the Mac there is something less than satisfying about safari, so it never gets used on my machine.

Because of firefox's erratic memory use on os x I mostly use chrome

Apple to support reps: Don't confirm Mac infections

Go

the difference being

I am not defending this (if its true) and it was just a matter of time before this happened but the difference between OSX and windows is on osx you must provide a password to instal stuff on windows maybe depending on how its set up.

Apple iPad 3 to sport 3D screen a 'dead cert'

won't happen

the screen would be expensive

if the 3ds is anything to go by it would kill the battery life (tone of the ipads strongest points)

Apple MacBook Pro 13in

pro 13

I have the cheaper £1000 i5 and compared to my old white macbook its much better. In normal use its whisper quiet and hardly gets warm at all. In my use the battery probably will do 5 hours whilst not earth shattering is pretty decent.

BT vs Sky vs Virgin

bex

sky

the new Samsung box is much better than the old V+ box and the picture seems better.

One thing to note with sky is the picture quality on the none HD channels sometimes is so bad its unwatchable, not a problem you have on virgin

Police DNA test plan to put off prostitutes' punters

bex

we are a country of prudes

If a women of her own choice and of a legal age "sell's her favours" , I can't for one see the problem. Its her body not the states. The so called moral aspects of the oldest profession should have been left back with the Victorians.

Bring prostitution out in the open with checks to make sure the ladies are doing it of their own choice and leave it at that.

Microsoft Kinect goes gangbusters

the bbc article is speculative crap with no basis in fact. If it was true it would be all over the place, the only articles in the internet about this link to the bbc one. I call poor reporting techniques, the bbc seem to have a spate of these recently, probably one shoddy reporter.

Apple iPhone 4 vs... the rest

iphone

Like the article says unless you put it in a protective gase tje iphone 4 is an accident waiting to happen. One thing that put me off about the iphone is the contracts are expensive at least £10 a month more than one with other phones

MS freebie anti-virus scanner auto-downloads provoke more anger

bex

insecure by design

I wish I could go time travel back to 93 and show Bill what a fuck up the design of windows is before everybody started to get used to how windows works to install stuff. Microsoft need to enforce password for install like most other OS's. I do home support for PC’s and regardless of what Virus software is on the PC stuff is getting through. So MSE as good as anything else, at least it won’t bog you down. That said I am mostly installing Avast at the moment
