Ten... two-bay Nas boxes

Cunningly Linguistic

I've never really understood the benefit of NAS boxes when a fully functioning PC could be had for the same price or lower. Or for that matter the bits left over from a recent upgrade.

Put them to work in the Foxconn factories, but all their wages go to the Chinese person they replaced.

Ape sanctuary seeks funds for armed Robo Bonobo

Paris Hilton

Given that Bonobo's are the primates that lurve to fuck. It can only be presumed that once they have access to words then it won't be long before we can expect some Mills & Boon bodice rippers from them.

As far as the robot is concerned, I hear Ann Summers has expressed an interest in partnership with Duracell.

Doctors sick of anonymous-coward NHS feedback commentards

Cunningly Linguistic
FAIL

People don't seem to realise that 50% of all doctors were in the bottom half of their classes, and of that 50% most end up as a GP.

A Jack of all medical trades, but a master of none.

Commentards in lynch-mob fervour...

...why is it in the post-9/11 world people are automatically assumed to be guilty?

Has the "innocent until proven guilty" mindset in this world of terrorism disappeared for every big media bust?

Is it any wonder that the US is the most reviled nation on Earth?

Our street is 50mb compatible. I don't use VM at all. As a result I must be pissing them off as they send me tons of junk mail. It's ridiculous the amount of trees that must have died to try to persuade me to take on something there is no way in hell I'd use.

So one errant email? Meh!

There's no such thing as American English, let alone British English.

The UK uses English, Americans speak American. There is no England in America (and although it tried, New England is still not England).

The "ish" on the end of English means pertaining to England. HTH

Brits turned off by Smart TVs

Cunningly Linguistic

If you can find me a 50" plasma monitor (none of that LCD/LED rubbish for me) at a TV price I'd be more than happy.

I only watch blu-rays, occasional DVDs and HD-DVDs, downloaded TV shows in hi-def and MKVs. That's it. Broadcast TV is so shite these days it really isn't worth the expense of putting a tuner in a TV.

Gimme a hi-quality screen where the usual expense of all the fripperies is spent on the plasma panel and its associated electronics and I'd be a happy man

Don't need one.

I have a 3-year-old Panasonic plasma with a PC with HDMI out (and a Keysonic wireless keyboard with integrated trackpad). Far smarter than any smart TV out there.

But if I were to buy a new TV it would have had to have all the money spent on getting the best picture it can. No 3D, no 'net access, no media streaming. Just a very, very good monitor really. My Denon amp and Mordaunt-Short 6.1 supplies the sound so it wouldn't even need a volume control.

These days TVs are getting more and more like the integrated stereo systems of old and it'll get to the point where they do everything with mediocrity but nothing with brilliance.

Ah I remember the Doom obsession well. Spending literally days downloading mods from the infant2 server circa '93. I think my personal stash of mods ended up at around 1500...though I think I only actually tried a quarter of them.

Fingerprint scanner can detect drugs in sweat

Cunningly Linguistic

I've been on opiates for nigh on 30 years, all courtesy of a long list of quacks of course, first dihydrocodeine and now tramadol (the latter I have a physical dependency on...my pain clinic consultant says "addicted is when you mug old grannies for your drugs, patients are 'physically dependent'" - I like my consultant. So what happens if I get scanned? I'm doing drugs quite legally with the full knowledge of my quack and the DVLA, but I'm sure Mr Plod won't give a shit at 3am on a cold night when my brakelight bulb has gone (and I have a digital camera on the seat next to me!).
