What the BLOCK? Microsoft to gobble Minecraft-maker 'for $2bn'

Re: It was fun while it lasted.

Apple's SNEAKY plan: COPY ANDROID. Hello iPhone 6, Watch

King Jack

Re: Says it is for right handers only

Do lefties wear girls blouses too? The buttons on male clothing must be a huge problem for left handers. I really hope they don't play a piano, all the keys being in the wrong place for lefties. What about driving? Do they insist on driving a lefthand drive car on the other side of the road? No?

This lefthanded bullshit has to end. We have two hands, use them. How difficult is it to put a watch on the left arm?

Yes, I'm left handed but I'm able to use my right hand when needed. Think about it you have to learn the action in the first instance, so just learn to use the other hand for some things. It balances both sides of the brain too.

Here is a what happens in all Dr Who episodes: Doctor lands/crashes somewhere, speaks to someone/alien then runs around a bit down some corridors, saves someone then escapes to repeat next week. That is Doctor Who. Saved you guys hours of viewing time.

WORLD CUP SHOCK: England declared winner in 2-1 defeat to Italy

King Jack
Devil

How did this become so accepted?

Football is all about cheating. Can you dive and pretend to be hurt? Even when the ref uses the shaving foam, they still move the ball and take the free kick from where they want. These 'professionals' should be banned for cheating, like Mr Lee was in the snooker fixing scandal. If there was real consequences then people wouldn't dare cheat. Still I blame the supporters. They accept the cheating and are willing to sub the wages of the players so game on.

Bendy or barmy: Why your next TV will be curved

King Jack

Curved Screens BS

The only reason the screens are curved is to sell TVs to stupid people who have to have the latest thing. In the '70s Hi-Fi used to change colour from Silver to Black then to Champagne and back again. TVs are good quality now, the resolutions are fine with most people so they distort the picture to invent a new must have feature. I'll buy when common sense returns to the manufactures.

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

King Jack

Re: Just a News Operation

The BBC took Dr Who of the air for years. There were campaigns to get it back on air, but the BBC knows best so no Dr Who. What is one of BBC's top programs? Dr Who. The BBC are arrogant and should be reigned in so they stop treating the paying public with contempt. Let them discover what it's like to live in the real world where doing stupid things costs you money. As it is they do whatever they like.

A BBC-by-subscription 'would be richer', MPs told

King Jack
Facepalm

Re: i'd happily pay more

The BBC make 3 episodes of Sherlock because they can get away with it. If they made a proper run of say 13 a series it would still cost the tax payers the same. So they make 3 and laugh all the way to the bank. Same logic with Top Gear. People love being shafted by the BBC so much they defend them.

Let them go subscription, so I can stop getting extortion letters every month.

Ho, ho, HOLY CR*P, ebuyer! Etailer rates staff on returns REJECTED

Re: I feel it in the air

Too right. You pay for postage and PACKING. So they cannot refuse something if it's packed differently as the packaging is yours. I had that argument once. I told them to refund the P&P if they wanted the packing back, if not the item was on it's way in a ripped up box because that is how I opened the box. I got my money back.

Gran Turismo 6: Another glossy, gorgeous Mario Kart on steroids

King Jack

The first GT (PS1) was on another level. The rest is just garbage cash in. It's not a real simulator as the cars don't get damaged. Even in the races the other cars look as if they are in procession. It's all just too clean. Can't be bothered any more. The one saving grace is the in game music.

Apple iWatch due in October 2014, to wirelessly charge from one metre away – report

King Jack
Thumb Down

Re: iWatch ? I cannot believe

Using a cell phone as a time piece is emulating a pocket watch from the '30s and it uses up one hand. Using a wrist watch is hands free. People with brains and who do not try to be 'trendy' use watches. The watch I wear is atomic/radio controlled, it has a solar cell so never needs batteries or charging ever. Just slap it on your wrist and forget about it.

Sony brags: We've hit over 2 MEELLION PS4 console 'sales' worldwide

King Jack

Re: My PS4 feels slicker and more refined than my PS3

So you bought something that is missing bits and broken in some areas, but you are happy because you own it? Did you bump your head or something, or maybe you missed a round of pills?

So buying broken stuff now is a bargain as Sony 'promise' to fix it later. I've got a house to sell you, it is on a cliff, I promise to add bricks and mortar, running water and 'leccy in the next update. Enjoy!!

Re: RE: The lack of ads on the Beeb is still remarkably compelling

But the ads do make all BBC programs start about 2 minutes after the advertised time. They should be fined for false.. er, advertising. Wait I thought they didn't advertise?

Flash stash on toppa platta: WD's tasty Black² 1TB combo for LAPTOPS

King Jack
Thumb Up

Tested on PS4

A similar drive was tested on a PS4. Yes it is slower than a true SSD but it is a lot faster than a bog standard HDD. It is also a lot bigger and cheaper than any SSD. It dynamically moves stuff to and from the SSD part so at first it is slow to load but on the next attempt it is faster. I can't see what is not to like.

BT Sport scores own goal with £897m Champions League footie rights deal

King Jack

Re: BBC

The BBC does not need ratings. It gets it's money from the licence fee. It is not nor has it ever been in competition with anyone. The BBC could show paint drying and you would still be forced to pay them. The BBC goes down market to save money on programming to pay the directors millions in bonuses and helicopter rides.

They love it when plebs defend them as if they are the holders of quality standards. TV has gone the way it is because the market allows it. If people hated crap tv they wouldn't subscribe to it.

GTA V Online hits speed bumps: Short wait before you can rough up that hooker

King Jack

Rockstar spent five years and $170m??

I think you'll find they spent $266m or £170m, take your pick.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels a little let down by GTA V. They boasted that all the interiors would be unique, but but all the ammunation stores are clones of each other as are the clothes shops. Most buildings are just boxes that you cannot enter when not on a mission. Why is it that R* still can't make a character open a door properly? All buildings have non realistic 'cowboy' swing doors. Five years and no improvement. I won't be rushing out to buy the next one.

Sky falling: 119,000 Brits flee O2, Be after Murdoch broadband gobble

Be Gone

I'm glad Be was bought by Sky. It gave me the much needed reason to see about getting fibre. It's costing me £4 more a month but my speed should be a lot better than the flaky <3Mb/s I was getting. Be had no plans ever to do fibre. The sad thing is I recommended them to someone just before the SKY deal was announced. Just counting the days before they jump ship too.

Fools and their liberty...

Some people genuinely want the DRM. I read some guy praising paying for XBL as it keeps the riff-raff out. The same person seemed to think that going round a mates house with a disk is too much effort and would prefer to fill up the tiny (500mb) disk with a download of his game. As if downloads are instant?

Sony allows hacking of its unloved SmartWatch

Re: Give it a rest....

Other OS was not used to the hack the PS3. And despite it being gone the PS3 is totally hacked. If you sell something, it is no longer yours and you have no business removing features from it. It is wrong no matter what the excuse.

Re: All sounds good to me

What happens when you fill the hard drive? It is not upgradeable and all games must live on it. So 15 games or so in, you will have to delete your collection to play something new. So games will only be available for a few months to the average person. You can always revert to 'shuffling disks'. You should think more.

62,000 fewer shops: Welcome to the High Street of 2018

King Jack

Re: How to save the high street

Too true. I've always wondered what the point was of making parking so expensive as to drive customers away. Sure the local council makes money but at the expense of the shop owners. That is the reason why supermarkets took all the trade, the customers could park for free and buy stuff.
