'Regular' PS3 gamers who've cancelled credit cards? You FOOLS!

Squiggle

Re: So long and thanks for all the phish.

Wrong. Cineavia stops me from playing videos that I legitimately own, that I've legitimately trancoded into avi's or ripped to iso's.

Latest PS3 hack hits Sony with massive migraine

Squiggle

Re: Couldn't Happen To A Nicer Company

Try again ... I have legitimately stored all of my DVD's as ISO's & AVI's and shipped the hard copies up into my loft.

Happily I could watch all of them through a media server via my PS3, until my old school fat PS3 died. Upon replacing with the newer thinner version I discovered Cinavia and that many of my newer releases won't play.

The Facebook job test: Now interviewers want your logins

Squiggle

Say what?

Okay ... So whilst asking for your Facebook credentials is not illegal ... In the UK, you're not allowed to ask any of the following questions:

How old are you?

Are you married?

Are you gay?

What are your childcare arrangements?

Are you planning to start a family soon?

Are you a member of a trade union?

What political party do you support?

All of the above can be derived from your Facebook logins and are covered under the Sex Discrimination Act, the Race Relations Act, the Employment Equality Regulations and the Disability Discrimination Act.

The punishment for asking any of the above in a job interview and then discriminating the potential employee? The prospective employer can be taked to an employment tribunal and face unlimited fines.

Asus: We are NOT killing off Transformer Prime

Squiggle
Thumb Up

I got one a couple of days after release ...

... Absolutely love it and don't have a single complaint about it! (I certainly haven't experienced this weird GPS issue that people seem to harp on about).

Having played with lots of tablets/iPads I can say that it's an absolute wonder compared to other devicdes out there.

Did I say I loved it?

Mobile gaming: battle of the gadgets

Squiggle

Really?!

Android has "increased piracy"?

Not sure how you've come to that conclusion ... I've got both iPhone and Android devices and I'd argue that Piracy is far more prolific on iOS devices than on Android.

Now, from a technology standpoint I'd agree that it's easier to run pirated games on Android devices as you don't have to root, whereas you would have to JB an iPhone to run dodgy games, but it's far easier to find dodgy pirated iOS games/software.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime Android Tablet

Squiggle
Thumb Up

I have one ...

... It's awesome! Couldn't be happier with it.

I have tested the GPS and it works fine for me, although I will admit I have little use for GPS on my tablet.

3G really isn't an issue for me, as I never leave home without my phone and if you're the type of person to buy one of these you're almost definitely going to have 3G on your phone! I just activate wireless hotspot and away I go without having to pay for another monthly sub.

In short, if you're thinking about getting one of these ... stop thinking and just buy one, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Sony delays 3D PlayStation telly in Europe

Squiggle
Joke

Perhaps?!

Perhaps they've realised that consumers really don't want to fork out obscene amounts of cash of lacklustre technologies that are neither innovative or desirable and the market clearly seems to back me up on this.

... Hang on ...

... Sony having business foresight ... vs ... Sony being inept ...

Silly me ... !

So, 14 hours battery life with a quad core processor wouldn't cut it in terms of an ultrabook?

Actually ...

... If you were to pass on the costs of this to the consumer, the price increase would be 43%.

1/*(1-0.3) = 1.42857 ~ 43%.

Ummm ....

I for one probably wouldn't put more than £20 on it, so about the same amount of cash I'd have in my wallet?
