Netflix needling you? BBC pimps up iPlayer ahead of BBC3 move

Kay Burley ate my hamster

At first I didn't like it

Then I found where they hid everything, it's a much cleaner design. I like a lot. :D

BBC, ITV gang up on YouView with 'FreeView Connect'

Kay Burley ate my hamster

Re: @ Grease Monkey

It was discussed in depth for years by El Reg.

Fantastic!!

Youview is too expensive for a connected TV receiver, we need a free version of the Sky NowTV box, something cheap that does free/bbc Internet telly and is secure so they can stick the broadcast channels over IP as well without licensing issues.

Chaps propose free global WiFi delivered FROM SPAAAACE

Re: A bit puzzled...

Also caching, lots of caching. This actually happened to Teletext in it's final years (via capture cards), it made it very fast to use.

A man with many thumbs and many pies http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Elstein

Sounds like Elstein is telling people what he wants them to hear, clearly there's some money he can't currently access.

EU eyes UHF spectrum: What do you think, biz bods... broadband?

Kay Burley ate my hamster

All about the money

These big companies seem to think they have an automatic right to our spectrum, I don't like their meeting, I don't like them publicising their meeting, I don't think they are in any way qualified to give the faintest idea of a good use for this bandwidth.

The digital dividend was always a dream but clearly there are some expectations in the minds of those who thought digital switch over was a good idea, vastly expanded Freeview, and the killer app whitespace networking!!!!

Apple Schill-er: 'I was shocked - SHOCKED! They went and copied the iPhone'

Kay Burley ate my hamster

When The iPhone was released...

I was shocked.

I remember saying "HP are gonna sue their asses"

I guess HP felt that Apple stealing the 'i' from iPaq for use on the 'i' in iPhone was not a strong enough case. It's a shame Apple don't have their sense of shame.

While we are at it how about blocking any leaked Tory speeches prior to 2010?

Re: From a Nexus 4 owner

I never found it to be slippery, my previous phone (Nexus S) was far more devious when attempting to escape my hand.

I did worry about the glass back and got a case for it pretty soon though.

Windows 8.1: A bit square, sure, but WAIT! It has a Start button

Kay Burley ate my hamster

Yuck!

I never liked the fiddly little Start Menu of old, the Win8 start menu is way more spacious and organised.

Just one thing bothers me... How do I remove the Start button? It reminds me of the bad old days....

CEO of Brit fashion bods Burberry lands Apple job for retail, online sales

Kay Burley ate my hamster

Re: Instinct over IQ

Snide or not those comments are indicative how a lot of people perceive both brands. The opening comment was exactly what I expected to see when I clicked comments, and it still made me laugh.

For me Apple's brand slipped when they released the first iPhone, it had less features than my Sony Ericsson of the time, I felt it didn't live up to the my experience of their computers.

I'd never heard of Burberry before the chavs made it famous. :)

Correct you could opt for XP until 2010 but the end of life date was known by then.

Google lifts skirts, reveals Play All Access to UK market

Re: UK vs Euro pricing

Why anyone would vote your comment down is beyond me. Google is a company like any other, there to squeeze every last penny they can from us. OK in the past they haven't done the Microsoft/Apple trick of charging the same number in different currencies but then again they haven't really charged for much so far.

I'll stick with Grooveshark.com, being an early adopter of their subscription model netted me a special rate of $30 per year. And they will answer your emails.

Almost exactly what I was thinking. It could just be that XP is still big on home PC's, July is summer, people on staycations and wfh will be on these dust buckets more often.

Re: So we can disable the laugh track.

Yup, or add and remove and component part. Say you want to remove the ticker from BBC News. Mr Orlowski seems to have avoided writing about any benefits and focussed solely on attacking the BBC as usual.

I read the whole article and thought something wasn't right, when I saw the author I realised it was an Orlowski classic. ;)

Steelie Neelie: Crack down on wicked ISPs so we can Skype

Alert

They are not ISP's they are NOISP's

Can't we settle this like Champagne and sparkling wine?

If you supply a connection to the whole Internet you are an ISP.

If you supply a connection to some online services but not others you are a twat, err I mean Nonspecific Online Internet Services Provider. AKA a NOISP...
