Slappers Only on License to Kill

Or was this just me? >_>

You end up just running around side stepping in circles trying to slap each other.

Definitely one of my top 3 games.

Fed up of using the scaled up version, such a waste of screen real state! Hopefully this will make it easier for me to browse and choose music whilst driving!

Google plan to kill Javascript with Dart, fight off Apple

Dayjo
Thumb Down

Make jquery native?

Hell no! It's already bloated as it is. I much prefer to work with javascript directly than go through jQuery. Granted it's a great framework and can be handy, but sorry, to build it into browsers when it's so buggy and bloated would be ridiculous.

Is an optical drive necessary?

I've not used my DVD drive in my desktop PC in probably 3 or 4 years.

With services like Steam allowing you to download games, and sites like LoveFilm letting you stream movies, Spotify for music, along with countless illegal ways for people other than me to get this 'entertainment' media, I wouldn't be upset if I purchased a computer without an optical drive.

Big Brother

The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.

Well I agree, in that if you put a photo on the internet where you friends are likely to tag you in, your privacy is in their hands. If you don't put your name / photo online then you're pretty much safe, right?

System down, website up.

Seems like the website is up, but their system is down. If you look at the "System Status" at the top of the site, it says:

"System Update

We apologise but the system is currently down. Please check back later."

Nintendo coughs to using Xbox, PS3 footage at Wii U event

Dayjo
Meh

Interesting..

I'm a big Ninty fan, always have been. But I am dubious/curious about this console (not rushing out to buy one, I don't have the time to play games really any more), but I'm definitely interested in seeing what it has to offer, and whether it really will compete with the XBOX and PS3.

Happy that they've done something different controller wise, always nice to have a different way to play console games, that's the whole point of consoles, to be interactive and fun so will be looking forward to more "actual" gameplay footage.

Zelda looks like it'll be pretty sick though!

IE9: Downloads beat Angry Birds, lag Firefox and Opera

Dayjo
IT Angle

Not Fair Stats.

How can they brag about the number of downloads they have if the previous versions of the browser were so awful that users would have downloaded anything just to get rid of the crap that was installed previously.

Logitech unveils first Google TV box

Dayjo

Quite often..

I take my massive tower downstairs to plug into my 50" HD tv in the living room to watch films / online videos. I don't have a games console or Virgin / Sky so my options are limited.

Wouldn't mind having something like this constantly plugged in, not that I'm going to buy one, I don't watch enough TV for it to be worth while.

ZoneAlarm slammed for scarewarey marketing

No suprise there

ZoneAlarm has been crap for years. Used to use it a long time ago, have been more successful just using windows firewall, and don't get popups the whole time whenever something tries to connect.

Firefox 4 beta 2 preaches tabs-on-top love to fanbois

Dayjo
Heart

@I don't know why anyone complains about the current startup speed of firefox,

Because it's ridiculously slow in comparison to Chrome? When I load firefox on any of my computers it takes a good 30 seconds to a minute to even show it's face whereas something like Chrome loads up in under 5 seconds.

Looking forward to v4 though :)

Validity of reason?

Surely any reason I choose not to vote is a 'valid' one, as it's entirely my choice, whether or not I vote.

There's a multitude of reasons I didn't vote, most of them aren't political.

Laziness, Busyness, Genuinely not knowing who to vote for and why, and not being educated enough in exactly what I would be voting for ... a new prime minister? Not really. I'm voting to elect an MP for my constituency (which obviously in turn effects who is elected).

I have no idea who those people are (apart from what i've seen in the spam stuffed in the letter box every morning), the only people I've heard about is Brown, Cameron, Clegg and co.

I don't like to think of myself as apolitical because I'm pretty opinionated generally, but I really don't like the current system, or understand enough about it to feel confident in what I'm voting for.

Most people I know are just blindly voting based on their already set views and have been incredibly close minded about what it means for the local constituency as well as long term goals.. speaking of which, one of my short term goals is to not reside in the UK.. another reason I guess that added to the lack of enthusiasm to vote.

Hope this clears things up and the down votes weren't out of ignorance. Feel free to down vote me, but this is just how I currently feel and I'll welcome any responses that would be able to encourage me to vote next time (if I'm in the country).

Cheers

Good.

At least they can get their voice heard now. I reside in Brighton, didn't vote, but would have voted Green if I had.

Google waves goodbye to Docs offline function

Dayjo
Thumb Down

Annoying

That I was trying to work last week with an incredibly temperamental internet connection and was highly confused that I couldn't find the offline set up! I didn't receive any notification of this being removed.

Meh.. I like google docs, it generally works ideally for me, but the offline access was one of the main reasons for this.

@ I Like IE8

Seriously?

Like.. I mean.. seriously?

The IE Developer tools are completely useless.. when they work they either don't refresh the source, leave elements highlighted with an ugly blue line, or doesn't actually help. Other than that it normally just crashes itself AND the rest of the browser at the same time.

*wishes IE could handle JS properly*

Quoted..

"No doubt future spacecraft designers will deploy advanced radiation-resistant alloys and magnetic shielding to protect Federation staff from instant death."

Made me chuckle.

As said, I do like the fact that this is all being theorized based on scientific knowledge available now. So potentially stuff could be discovered in the future that blow this all out of the water.

CCTV website recruits video vigilantes

Emaill

Spelling mistake on their sign up form... not that I was rushing to sign up or anything... >_>

So technically right, I look at my local CCTV, run out, do some mild crime that gets me a free bed for the night, report it via text, repeat, and get myself a cool £1000 for 3 nights on the town?

Sounds brilliant.

Bonus Points?

... also, do we receive bonus points if we send in an MMS with a screenshot of the crime? I mean, if I was watching and this scene (off of their site); http://interneteyes.co.uk/images/gunman.jpg happened... I would most definitely want some sort of photographic evidence to prove my text was worth the £1000.

Attack of the Killer Tits

Dayjo
Thumb Up

Great.

"Needless to say, we speak here not of any scenario involving carelessly-roosting chiropterine boudoir intruders inadvertently stifled by human female tophamper in a comedo-tragic cleavage mishap or similar. Rather, the "Great Tits" in question here are peckish birds - of the same ingenious family as the renowned cream-snaffling Blue Tits of old Blighty."

I did chuckle at this. Does sound like you write for Top Gear or something.
