BT to fibre up another 163 exchanges, coy on exactly where

Modjo30
FAIL

How about

Concentrating on enabling the cabinets around the exchanges already with the upgrade instead of headline grabbing, we are a small office on a business park in the middle of Bedford, the exchange has been ready for over a year, most of the cabinets in our street that are connected to homes have been upgraded yet we're all stuck with 3mb download speeds and they have no date for a planned upgrade they can give me, come on BT i've been on 50mb at home from Virgin for 2 years and you can only offer 3mb to a business? What year is this? 2004?

Apple's Retina Macs: A little too elite?

Modjo30
Thumb Down

confused

I'm sorry but what Hardware are you talking about? The screen is great yes but all other internal hardware is made by someone else, If you want to run Windows 7 on a mac, you can get hardware a hell of a lot better than what they offer on macs already and at muss less cost, the reason people buy a mac is the software more than anything as it processes music and video mush better than anything else can, the hardware itself is pretty bog standard

New Yorker sues Apple: 'Misleading and deceptive' Siri ads

Modjo30
FAIL

To be honest i'm a little annoyed at Siri too, i'm in the UK and it was advertised as being able to locate businesses, but failed to mention that this could only be done in the USA and they had no intention of ever getting it to work anywhere else.

Why would Americans need to know where a business is, they don't even own passports as they never leave their streets.

Windows 7 customers hit by service pack 1 install 'fatal error' flaws

Modjo30

All fine here

I installed it on my machine as soon as it was available and have had no problem what so ever, i will say though that my 3d mark test results were lower after the install so it has done something to slow my pc down somewhere but nothing i can really notice

Best Buys: Budget DSLR Cameras

Modjo30

Not true

AA batteries are completely useless in a DSLR camera, expensive and wont last long, I have a Nikon D90 and my Lithium batteries hold their charge for weeks

Perseid meteors 'thrill star-gazers'

Modjo30
Stop

Re: Skies were clear!

D90 if fine for taking continual shots, i have my shutter set to bulb and i leave the shutter open for about 55 seconds, i use my £15 remote to open and close the shutter, i would have iso at 400 simply because most of the meteors won't be very bright so it can be had to capture the light from them

Solar plasma aurora storm ONGOING UPDATE

Modjo30
FAIL

Well THE REGISTER got it wrong

There was no Aurora last night anywhere, the 2 eruptions on sunday joined together and hit on tuesday night so there was never going to be another one, any plasma left just missed the earth, funny how sites like this and the national papers find out things like this way too late

UK.gov may cut BBC licence fee in 2012

Need to be changed not stopped

I agree with having to pay for the BBC, at least you don't get adverts, What i don't agree is the way it is put about where you will be imprisoned if you don't pay them, this needs to be changed, if you want the BBC then yes you will have to pay for it but if you don't want the BBC but still want to watch one of the other 100's of channels available, why should you pay for something you're not going to watch, things have changed an awful lot since the BBC was the only channel broadcasting, the BBC do not own the other channels available yet we have to pay the BBC to be able to watch them? how'd you figure that one out

Yeah,Why?

If you're one of the people that will be buying a Large Trigger happy TV style Ipod Touch then you can just call yourself a sheep that can't think for themselves, there are better devices out there at a cheaper price and not locked down like everything that Apple bring out

Another reason to be grateful that we live in a country where although it's getting smaller, freedom of speech,txts etc is still here, beliefs in some countries do make you laugh

Apple's iPad - fat iPhone without the phone

Modjo30
FAIL

Pointless waste of money

What utter rubbish, when will Apple learn that they need to start allowing things like Flash on their devices, they're only holding themselves back by doing this and as for itunes, what a pile of s... that is, why can't they just be like every other mp3 player and be able to drag and drop files, it's such a pain to get other mp3's that i've brought elsewhere onto my iphone. untill they change issues like these, the ipad may as well start digging it's grave now.
