Potholes

I've been using 'Fix My Street!' for this for a while. Great for sending pothole pics to the council... These apps are genuinely useful and I think they encourage people to report things they'd normally not go to the effort of complaining about.

Smut oglers told to opt in to keep web filth flowing

WTF?

WHAT?!

Someone please remind me what percentage of web traffic is porn? Get rid of that and filesharing and only gamers will need a phone line! If anything, make it so you have to opt-out. That's a much less embarrassing phone call, and easily faked in front of the wife ;-)

Virgin Media blames Activision for Call of Duty lag problems

Dward

I have played blops...

Excuse my blatant troll there ;-) I had blops for a while and noticed no problems. Played it loads, but went back to MW2 because I prefer it. Had no issues with lag/latency in either game. Perhaps it IS a throttling issue then, because I don't do a lot of downloading... I can't view the video from work so was unaware that MW2 was unaffected - I just assumed traffic from both would be treated the same? Very strange...

n00bs

I'm a 10mb Virgin Media customer who plays Modern Warfare 2 on the PS3. I have a kill-to-death ratio of 1.3 and have not noticed any problems. I think n00bs just be n00bin' and can't admit it...

Standard smartphone charger to dominate in two years

Dward

EU a bit late...

The rest of the world started doing this in January 2010... Every HTC phone I've ever seen already charges by Micro-USB, so I don't know why they haven't signed up. We have a Sony Ericsson, a BlackBerry and a HTC Desire in our house and they all charge from the same cables, so we keep one cable in the socket, one in the car and one connected to the PC - much better than it used to be. I thought Apple were the only ones not on the bandwagon so that they could continue ripping people off!

Too expensive!

For the same money I got a PS3 with PlayTV (dual tuner) and swapped the HDD for a 320GB one. It does all of the above, plus blu-ray and gaming. Think carefully about this one, people!
