why ?

because the name is "nicely inconspicuous" ?

It might fit for the moon as it has only recently been discovered (must have been hiding).

Sony promises PC-based PlayStation 4 for Christmas

Isendel Steel
Meh

Backwards

I too would be interested in hearing how directly compatible it will be with earlier versions, having been burnt by the "upgrade" to PS3 and being unable to use the PS1/PS2 game disks (although will be unlikely to purchase as the PS3 in house has been demoted to a blue-ray player).

Nope - was commenting that Lewis usually handles the topic...I am just an interested reader, and enjoy the balance provided by El Reg to the overwhelming "we're all gonna die" from everywhere else.

Second Higgs possibility pops up in CERN data

Re: Nearly there

The only problem being that if we find the answer, it will be replaced by something even more inexplicable....or given that potentially 2 particles have been "found", maybe that is already the case.

First

NASA indicate The Moon has cracks on it:

Then they crash the two probes into it.....Hope they don't turn the cracks into fissures.

Lords call for the end of TV transmissions

Isendel Steel
Alert

Sounds fine in principle....

However, there would also need to be some investment at the receiver end - those who don't want or need broadband for example (it would now become a necessary evil and additional cost to those on limited income).

Would meet the government view of every service to be web based - the smart TV sellers must be applauding this and rubbing their hands together (and yes I know it's just a recommendation).
