Androids in celluloid – which machine deserves the ULTIMATE MOVIE ROBOT title?

BRYN

Re: Marvin - Remember it's film version, not the book, radio or TV version

Marvin the one from the TV series also appeared in the movie. He's in the queue for something at the Vogon homeworld. Thus his entry is valid.

Internet advertising giant (Google) 'mulls' map app Waze gobble

BRYN

it would mean that it wouldn't have to pay Google to use its map api when people check in around the world, which possible runs £100,000's per annum.

So it could fairly quickly pay for itself.

BlackBerry CEO: Our vibrating devices will satisfy most needs

Re: Really ....

"Well judging by the lukewarm response to the Z10 in the UK it looks like break then."

citation required please, since every company that does market research has back tracked on all "less than expected" predictions

"It's overpriced and the app support is pitiful. Surely he knows it's not just the phone and hardware but the eco-system behind it that drives sales .... and it's sadly lacking."

Over priced? seems fairly run of the mill pricing wise for a similar specced iPhone or android based phone.

App support i have to agree isnt great but its a new platform barely a month out from release. iOS and Androiud both took time for momentum to gather.

Satellite broadband rollout for all in US: But Europe just doesn't get it

BRYN

Re: the sub headline?

Yup your correct neither of them do. I never said they did. Just if satellite broadband launched in the UK only viable provider would be Sky/News International.

Wish smart people would actually read, rather than jump to conclusions.

Re: Other satellite internet is available

Yup there broadband service is ADSL at the moment. However the point is that they alone are the only viable satellite broadband provider. If another company lauinched the service they would use Sky's satellites rather than fund there own. Thus my point stands. Satellite broadband in th UK would be a Sky driven service. Murdoch is a cancer, News International are a cancer. Slowly everyday we get fed a little bit more of the poison he spouts. Seriously your all intelligent, who in ther right mind would actually pay Sky/News international for anything?

the sub headline?

When your only dish provider in the UK is Sky. Is it any wonder that we don't trust them. Especially in light of recent news. Before some wise guy/girl pipes up and says Freesat they use Sky's satellite network. Thus if Freesat provided a service you'd still be using sky. A turd by any other name is still a turd. #jft96 #dontbuythesun #dontgivemurdochapenny #mediacancer

BSkyB deals Ofcom a blow in battle over telly sports prices

BRYN

Sky and its parent company News Corp

are cancerous growths in the media world. They will not stop until they have absolute control of our media. They already have surmountable control of Australian media, massive influence in the US.

They need to be controlled vigorously..

Facebook phone app attempts to seize ALL YOUR MAIL

BRYN

Facebook

Is the first aggressive cancer of the networked age.

It needs to have controls placed upon it. Surely making unrequested changes to your data on the phone is covered under the Computer misuse act 1984 and the amended 2000 legislation. If not it must certainly be covered by Data protection regulations. At least here in the UK, I am sure other intelligent* nations have there own applicable regulations

*looking at you USA.

Sony calls in data Sherlocks to unpick megahack disaster

hmmm

Even 1 exposed credit card, is one too many.

Stop being blinkered. The fact that personal info which could allow the setting up of fraudulent identities has been stolen that is worht worrying about. I assume your a PSN/SOE user whom feels comfortable in your bubble.

Imagine going to a bank and applying for a load to be asked when you plan on repaying the 4 other loans that have been taken out with your details that have been stolen. That my friend is a very real possibility.

O2 tries to explain its new prudish nature

BRYN
FAIL

makes me laugh

I have an iphone on o2, I have my home broadband through o2.

I cannot use 3g to read the B3ta.com newsletter or use the B3ta app due to o2's new filter.

However

If i use wifi connection through my home router i can visit the B3ta website, use the app and apparantly there is something called pron??? I can consume at my (p)leasure. This occurs without any kind of obstruction.

So to me this is an unbelievable double standard, and they will ot lift the filter for my unless I use a 3rd party company to verify and credit card transaction or take time out of my life to find a photo id and go to an o2 shop.

Also trying to explain to the faceless drone on the end of the phone when I call them that if I can visit the darker corners of the internet without restriction at home through bb supplied by them that having the filter on my phone contract is well silly.....

there explanation I have recieved is that its to protect children from accidently going to places they shouldn't be going to.

epic fail o2

Fanbois end Judas Phone 'Death Grip' with, um, SIM tape

BRYN

I suggest somebody reads what they type before submitting

The infamous iCrap 4 has a few problems:

(1) Apple admits software defects;

(2) The antenna is mechanically defective;

(3) Picture are yellow tinted;

(4) Batteries catch fires;

(5) Connectors burn and melt;

(6) Unbreakable glass breaks and scratches;

(7) SIM shorts to carrier;

(8) Yellow colouring on glass;

(9) Green blob/spot on camera, in the centre;

(10) Proximity detector cuts calls.

Points 3 and 8 aere the same thing which cures itself once the bonding agent evaporates.

Point 2 The antennas work perfectly and have been proven to do so, the fault is with the positioning of them which allows them to be shorted out.

Point 4 Battery fires where has this been reported?

Point 5, 1 reported cable connectore fault, out of a few million doesn't warrant a recall

Point 6 Show me where they have advertised the screen as unbreakable? Theres 1000's of security companies would be please to know about this new technology.

Point 7 Sim's only short to sium holder when people have trimmed a full size sim down to fit.

Point 9 Never seen a report on the green blob thays not to dissmiss it without merit, but merely noticing the fact that even the slightness thing Apple related gets reported on here it seems funny thats never been mentioned.

Point 10 Proximity sensor yes has a fault, its a little sensitive, a software patch will fix it.

You sir seem to be a troll.

Apple has its faults the Iphone4 has some problems many of them recognised and addressed by Steve Jobbie, To be honest when i worked in the mobile phone industry I heard many of the same complaints levelled and SE, RIM and Nokia. And many more, mostly alot more severe.

ISP condemns new BT backbone

BRYN

Fibre upgrade

I believe, however maybe wrong, the 21CN is the project name for the backbone upgrades roll out. They need to upgrade this to get the BTinfinty service which is fibre based to the cabitents on the street.

I may be wrong, BT really is the ministry of duff infomation.

Picassa uses wine

To run under Linux, it is in fact a sloppy port.

You do not need to install Wine to run Picassa. Picassa installs the Wine libraries it needs to run.

If Sony's TV are so good

How come they really on Samsung to make their panels.

What your really saying is look how good those Smasung panels work in the overly espensive Sony plastic box, designed for people to stupid to releiase that Sony is on a shell of its form 80's glroy days, when it made everything it sold and was a quality prosduct.

Mines the one with a Samsung telly in the pocket and an extra £300 to spend in ther other pocket

iPhone hack bypasses AT&T

BRYN

Why bother?

"Apple should offer the iPhone UNLOCKED, to be able to use any SIM card from any carrier the user chooses.

Remember it is not subsidized by AT&T. They would sell like hot cakes.

This would make the iPhone truly global."

The Iphone is an over hyped hunk o junk. Therer are many many better phones out there.

Honestly a pretty interface doesn't excuse bad battery life and ugly brick like shape in your paocket.
