Seeing as I've had to replace all my lithium-ion batteries in my mini video camera's with AA rechargeable battery packs (using the power jack)
using HYBRIO NiMH low self discharge batteries, this is good news
With lithium-ion i got 45 minutes video time, with 2 AA i get 5 hrs, plus they cost £££'s less
3x the life is a step in the right direction, but i bet the cost of a good lithium-ion or pol will go up
OMFG!!! i told my Wife not to fill it in, but she did it anyway :-(
This is good news, my weekends will be filled for a long time
"Hacker wrists slapped for stealing Lady Gaga songs"
the songs are as much her's as say a reg readers, she has little to do with them
so what this is, is corporate theft ;-)
Good news for us pc gamers too
This is good news, now it will be the PC playing catchup with the new xbox, so we will see true next gen PC games
QUOTE "How ignorant of you."
"How ignorant of you."
looks like the EA trolls are awake lol
If you know anything about PC's and games, then you will surly know that you cant fit a pint in a half pint.
For god's sake the xbox has held the PC back for years, thats a fact
Will you boycott?
Will you boycott? yes as i've said for a long time, this is not going to be a bf2 or bf1, just a small map xbox game
Hope i'm wrong
I so wan't BF3 to be a gfx and game-play upgrade to the PC BF2, but who are we PC owners kidding... it's just one more xbox game... small maps, low ram usage, low CPU/gpu usage, but will struggle on my i7 960 :(
My old foxsat hd get's the bbc s2 hd np, but it can't pickup c4 hd :?
What a load of shit
It's unlikely that the poor man's breathing tubes were blocked by rain.
More likely that as it rained, the soil became saturated, filled the coffin and he drowned or suffocated
also wet soil is allot heavier than dry soil.
DAB was dead as soon as was released!
It's a white Elephant
Shortwave digital, Digital Radio Mondiale DRM will be the world norm soon,
even BBC R4 admitted the UK jumped the bloody gun with dab
No So Good
If someone got hit in the head, then drank alcohol,
how would ER know what they were looking at, brain damage, or drunkenness
They do, and i have two :)
Nokia 1800, got it for £10 unlocked (over 3 weeks now and still on first charge)
and a Vodaphone nokia 340 for £7 locked
both payg lol
And use the hosts file to block fackbook
Same old same old
Same old xbox port killing pc games
i bet it's dx9
PC games are still dx9, because of the xbox's very old gfx
MW3 will be small and claustrophobic, because of the xbox's lack of ram
why should pc users have to put up with the same old crap lowest common denominator games
for gods sake stop releasing cod every year and WORK on it a bit longer!
I still use firefox, but don't trust it after it came to light that a version of ietab contained spyware.
it was reported again and again, but was still up for download about a year later.
65bit one bit better than the rest
... There will be a "Windows 8 traditional", she said, that will run on x86 chips
hold on, when the hell are we getting a full 64bit windows os???
I thought windows 7 was going to be the crossover point :/
And who still uses 3gb of ram, i get low mem just running chrome with 20+ tabs open with 6gb for gods sake.
Just more bot servers then!
So we will have more twits n twats flocking to twitter and facebook then.
my Internet already slows down when Internet users who have no PC's turn on their set-top boxes and watch iplayer!.
look i help local people who are new to PC's, and I'm having to clean and reinstall the OS of their PC's every few months because of the crap they've installed
My wifes friends bring me PC's to "have a look at" all the time, and they are just full of viruses,
so it WILL get worse with more none PC savy users or ALL incomes online.
And as for comet staff helping... wtf i am sooo sick of removing all the crap they put on the PC's they sell to people.
people i know who don't use a PC, don't want one, and laugh at people who use them, saying that its a waste of a short life stuck on a PC.
my mum at the age of 83 was talked into having free sky TV installed even though she didn't want it. they told her... digital digital digital. after a week she took the box out and binned it, saying the box was loud (hdd clicking). she just wanted to be left alone and didn't want tec rammed in her face.
also .gov will have a mic n cam in every home.... "lol look at this Tracy, this small light comes on when you get undressed, and whats that high pitched whistling coming from the speakers"
(sorry for rambling.. not with it today, plus one finger typing)
Not the luckiest name
Project Lightning is not the luckiest name for a project that involves computers.
I hope they are working on a Project Surge protector too lol
Tip of the iceberg
This is only a small percent of what PC users know.
Remember the games console that had a chip that could be turned in to a mic
Remember Eastern Europe, a free phone in every home = a mic in every home.
And now we have PC's in almost every home... free laptops anyone?
The hardware still needed software to drive it, so what was the anti spy-ware, anti virus software doing then???
I've found the 7200.10s to be very loud, so now use them in my sumo pvr box's
I've 5 7200.11s in the PC and all suffer from stalls.
Still stick with Seagate though, as every samsung I've had set on fire :(
I welcome the new Pirate friendly drives
This is why i never wash
Stop the xbox
So your xbox made even more money, mmm ...
YOU AND YOUR XBOX ARE KILLING PC GAMES!
New PC games are still dx9, and look like crap. --- Because of the xbox's very old gfx
New PC games are small and claustrophobic. --- Because of the xbox's lack of ram
Stop making the xbox, it's the lowest common denominator.
Why Don't You Just Switch Off Your xbox and Go Do Something Less Boring Instead
like use a PC ;)
8 kw Radio
wow I'd wish id thought of this, it's so simple
my daughter would put the shower on just to listen to the radio.... 8kw radio anyone!
I see the reg is reviewing stuff we can all afford lol
As long as Little Rich has top billing i'll be happy http://tinyurl.com/67zzygx
UK Gas n Oil
If the USA has so much gas, then Thatcher and the Tories should not have gave them the UK's gas n oil in the 70's/80's, the UK would have even more cheap energy left for it's people.
Sick to the Back Teeth
They should test the Sun, that thing has been making ME Sick for years lol
This story makes a mockery of the UK porn laws lol
Don't fear the Reaper do do do
All our times have come
Here but now they're gone
Seasons don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain
We can be like they are
Come on baby... Don't fear the Reaper
Baby take my hand... Don't fear the Reaper
We'll be able to fly... Don't fear the Reaper
Baby I'm your man...
Show a pic then

The C64 was/is better than the specy :)
I hope they make a Turbocharged Vic 20
I'm looking forward to IE9
It's hard to get 2 GFX cards to work never mind 16
16x the stutter
BBC Just say No
Lost them, or sold them for Coke?
Mark has some very useful tools on his site, saved my bacon a few times
So tell me how file sharers are freetards then?
the reg seems to be against p2p :/
I'd just left school when i got my first computer (a VIC 20)
I loved the vic because i could write code to make things move on the screen lol.
To me computers were magical things, things of the future.
But to the kids now, well they just think of them as we would think of lights, TV's, Radios, noting special.
I don't thing I'd have been that interested in a class on how to use a Radio
So I'd say the Wow factor that i had, has gone, thats the problem.
Greed greed and more greed
"the technology also makes it easier to switch subscribers to new (higher) tariffs if they persistently fail to pay their bill on time."
So low income families who struggle to pay the bill on time have to pay more in the end.
This is just a way for the greedy bastards to make more money from people who can't afford to live.
The well off get a tummy rub, the poor get a kicking
"We think that one of the reasons we have some of the best TV and broadcasting in the world"
Is this a joke?
Scrap the tax, and let the BBC make it's money like the rest of the worlds TV has to.
Give us your money
AMD should use the $83m to sort out the GFX card hardware problems,
before buyers take out a class action and take it from them.
