Wii got it WRONG: How do you solve a problem like Nintendo?

Re: Wii failed

How can anyone forget that moment in Mario Kart 64 when you fly through 3D space for miles over a river.

I swear that's where my Vertigo started...

Yes, I'm leaving now.

This is why they don't normally let passengers vent fluid while on the runway.

Microsoft to RIP THE SHEETS off Windows 9 aka 'Threshold' in April

Evoflash

Start Button

..represents so much. Way more than just an addition to an operating system (zzz please!)

It represented my journey from cave dweller to the hunched keyboard puncher I am now today.

I was 18 when Win95 came out. I saw it in shop windows, the start button brightly waiting for me to press it, and eventually I got to do just that on a PC belonging to a friends Dad.

I couldn't WAIT to have my own Start button.

When I got my own in 1998, I felt I had truly come of age, and also touched the future that Maggie Philbin had endlessly told me about.

XP came along and something was afoot...it had defaulted to a crayon colouring of Start button. Easily remedied mind, but a disconcerting change with age nonetheless - like ear or nose hair.

Win 7 went round. I was again irritated. JUST STOP. Leave the button alone.

Then Win 8. OMG. They only went and did it didn't they. I knew it. OMG Why me. No start button? I'm adrift. My link back to the day when I finally "made it" was gone. I hadn't even been asked. It was like when my parents decided to wallpaper my room, and didn't tell me there would be flowers on my wall. I was back to being 8 years old. No way could I take to that. I hated being 8.

Re: highly dubious

The pasted article relies on Apple having consistent design direction to disprove the validity of the photo.

I don't think they have consistent design direction.

PlayStation 4 BLUE LIGHT OF DEATH blamed on power cords, TV sets, butterflies in China

Evoflash

At least there's a light.

I recall working at Epson on customer help desk around the time they released a budget printer with no lights whatsoever.

Even at this great distance those days still seem so dark. (maybe due to lack of lights).

Oh dear. Misread this:

Games on Apple? pfft

LOL

The desktop Windows platform is the most cost-effective high-end gaming solution.

I can't ever see why I would pay double the price for half the performance and a tenth (guess? much less I bet) of the available games library.

They sure look nice, but the ipad and the macintoshes will not be entering my house anytime soon!

Children Left Unsupervised Horror

Imagine leaving your children to face the naked (oo-er), sharp blade of the web?? Surely not the way to go. In fact, I once used Google to see if it could find obscenity.

It did.

I never quite recovered.
