Sony pulls plug on cabled power

@Alex Walsh

Whilst it might be expensive and impractical at the moment, it's called research!

Tell me where in that article does it say that this is a finished product Sony are happy that 25% wastage is acceptable?

"But the technology is far from perfect, Sony admitted."

Microsoft offers EU choice on Windows browsers

mr_chris
Thumb Down

If Microsoft have to do this...

Then surely Apple should be forced to do the same - Safari is not the only Mac browser out there! IMO Apple are far more controlling of the end user experience than MS.

And which browsers will we get a choice of then? Who will make that decision?

I know IE is hated by many, mainly because of previous versions, and the fact it came out of Redmond, but this is just going to generate a lot of confusion for joe public when they buy a new Windows 7 PC. Another decision they have to make instead of simply getting on with it, when in reality they couldn't give two hoots!!

This sets a dangerous precident - bullying tactics by the EU. Sadly yhey appear to have successfully got away with this, what will they try in the future?

Re: "the writer's rights were successfully protected thanks to technology"

By any chance, would that be the same technology that caused this problem to exist in the first place?
