Android devs get schooled on style

Mike Roantree 1

never as comfortable using the market as I am with Itunes

Would like to see a little more regulation on the market, a little bit more akin to the Appstore just to crack down on rogue apps, with design improvements could turn out quite nicely

UK student faces extradition to US after piracy case ruling

Another massive injection of cash for the Lawyers

Considering how long and drawn out this is likely to become the only people who win here will be the lawyers.....

I fail to comprehend how this can fall under US jurisdiction, the McKinnon case at least had the 'justification' that he hacked US computers so an offence occurred in the US.

Unless the guys site was hosted on US soil, the claim that the USA has and right to the extradition seems tenuous at best, as this legislation was set up to expidite the extradition of terrorists then surely it should be limited only to terrorists and not someone who offended the corporations.

Obviously our government doesnt give a shit but on the upside it will be a few years probably before he exhausts all appeals, so a government with ballls might repeal the treaty in the intervening years.

Vodafone issues real Froyo update for HTC Desire

@neoDaz re the update now

When you choose the update now option it must go thru VF cos I was caught by the crappy branding exercise that upset a large amount of people.

Its nice to see that VF have listened and are releasing a vanilla version of 2.2

You can check by clicking on check now, if you get something returned DONT INSTALL IT.

Its the crap update

havent we heard this before

"the best PC operating system we have ever built"

Vista was a joke, although 7 RTM seems ok there are a lot of things I dont like about it, although a lot of those are probly to do with change.

Always said I wouldnt go to Vista and now I dont have to, windows 7 will have to shine very bright to make me move from XP until I absolutely have to
