AMD and Intel extreme desktop CPU workout

AMD Fanbois go get a life please

Title says it all really, so much hate for Intel when clearly AMD's flagship chip cannot compete with an 18 month old design in any performance arena, heat, power consumption, efficiency and price. Anyone who really needs reminding should look at the real world stats for Intels i5s. Yes AMD have a place and its in the bargain bin for Media PCs or just there for fanbois who must keep their 20 year old mobo that doesnt support the latest feature just to save £80

Nokia adds touch to budget blowers

Nokia corrupted by Microsoft in the English Markets?

Looks like people are finding the lack of Ashas in UK similar to my problem.

I wanted a Nokia 701, not a Lumia or the very small 700.

For some insane reason the 701 is only available from mainland Europe. Why? Because it owns all Windows phones made by Nokia and Microsoft know it (even the lumia 900 imho). I am convinced MS have paid Nokia to not make it available in their prime WinPho markets of UK and US. Looks like the same is being done with the Ashas. In the end I imported the 701 from amazon.de for 300 euros. This phone does not disappoint and is everything a good Nokia has always been. Even Belle is up their with Android for usability. Anyone looking for a capable do everything 3.5" handset should check this phone out.

NOKIA Hate! - Fail !!!

Another useless reg Nokia hate post.

The asha scores 80% and is the cheapest of all the phones scoring 80-85% and still no recommendation. The E series phones still available if you look are far superior to most of these. People like the reviewer just need to be shot (no not harsh at all!) for the biased HTC shoddy expensive plastic crap recommendations.

Renault Mégane 265 Trophy 2.0 turbo

DangerousQ

FWD - pffff

fastest hot hatch? hmmm, so the Focus RS 500 and Audi RS3 are slower, for the average driver I think not, if its a bit wet i think not! the Ford and the Audi would slaughter the renault.

RS3 is awesome I want one now but £40k is too much, you do get 340 BHP, 4WD, 450Nm of torques, 0-60 in 4.5 secs and a top speed of 179 mph. And it wont fall apart if you sneeze.

Ten... best Blu-ray movies of 2011

Epic Fail! Dr Who and Tron, WTF

Dr Who, mediocre bbc tosh,

Fringe season 3 was the nest thing on tv ever (until Game of Thrones came out, BluRay in the new year we hope!)

Try watching some proper drama with plot lines that aren't tired and predictable.

Tron, best picture quality, ha, polished turd more like.

RE: Afterlife, not a bad film but Sanctum was a far better example of 3D at work and it had a plot.

but wtf still reeling from Dr Who,

Ten Essential... 500GB Portable Hard Drives

DangerousQ
FAIL

Poor Value for money

As already mentioned all priced around £100, a better and much d=faster option is a separate HDD and drive caddy, there are a few caddys that have USB2 and eSATA, this is my route of choice significantly faster than anything firewire has to offer.

You could also add a seagate momentus 7200 rpm drive and get superb performance

Freeview HD sacrifices surround sound for World Cup scramble

DangerousQ
WTF?

Blood Boiling Angry

Seriously someone at OFCOM needs to kick all this into touch. We have a Freeview HD service that is crippled (London transmitters running at 1/10th power til 2012) we have no decent boxes with full 5.1 support and we as consumers have to take this crap!

I'm glad I went down the Freesat route - I just wish it would get the investment and media support it deserves as Freeview HD just makes me angry
