Re: BBC PR = news
"Just because the BBC think anything to do with Dr Who counts as internationally-important news doesn't mean the rest of us have to go along."
Maybe El Reg considers it 'news' because it's exactly the kind of stuff a majority of it's readers would be interested in?
It's all fun and games...
...until someone loses an eye.
"Limitations? There's the much publicised lack of NFC, but even the iPhone 5 naysayers have to admit there's very little need for it now, certainly as a payment mechanism. Next year, when the iPhone 5S comes out, maybe; but not now."
How about if you don't want to buy a new iPhone? Especially not half way through a 24 month contract?
I use NFC all the time, not just for payments. Just because it hasn't fully taken off doesn't mean it isn't used!
@ "Good riddance"
At a time when unemployment is at an all-time low, and the global economy is showing no immediate signs of recovery, we should be putting our petty annoyances behind us and showing our support for those who are going to be out of work.
I couldn't care less about Game, they screwed up and we all know it, but I do care for the majority of the 10,000 ex-employees who are suddenly going to be signing up for jobseeker's allowance....
"...and promises free calls next time its service goes titsup."
Well at least we know there WILL be a next time.

All I want...
...is for someone to find a working copy of "The Magic Telephone Box". Only when I get past that dragon will I be able to carry on with my life without the constant pain of defeat.
It's may not be perfect, but...
I've been using this on Android for a little while now, and I've found it can be a bit of a chore to use at times.
But I don't care - I'm using Photoshop on a tablet for Pete's sake! It's one of those things I've been dreaming of since I first started using Photoshop 3!
In other games news...
... things of relevance are happening.
What they need is their own COD or FIFA...
Nintendo are really stunted in the fact they are releasing original games featuring ageing mascots.
What they really need is the same game, every year, with a lick of paint.
Scared to move?
You could be constantly adjusting the TV volume, and while the other half and kids are asleep upstairs that is never a good idea.
Obviously, because it'll wake them up...nothing to do with the A/V content you'd be enjoying at the time.
Neverless, it'd be funny to get a device to play a short trumpet sound and a laughter track every time your face hits a surface, eg: when you trip over the cat and smack your head off the table.
The Silver Locusts
I loved watching this on TV as a child, it instilled a fear in me that, until then, I had not comprehended.
A big-screen adaptation would probably work, if they hacked and disfigured it beyond all recognition.
Instead I'll buy the Transformer, with the keyboard dock, and p**s the remaining £170 up the wall...
Tried a load of Audio player apps, and settled on this one.
The functionality is second to none, and the sound quality on my Galaxy S (with a volume enhancer, eg: Voodoo Soundfix) is good enough to rival any stand-alone PMP.
Also the fact you have a very good lockscreen, that only appears when the headphones are plugged in, and allows for swipe gestures, is a godsend.
The sound is terrible! So bad I'm scared to turn it on.
The in-built games work fine, but cartridge-based games are poorly emulated (for some reason) and you will experience regular glitches - if they load at all!
Fan of the Animated Series...
The film wasn't terrible, it just wasn't good. The pace was too slow and the characters were bland compared to their colourful personalities in the series. And the acting is awful. And the fighting is cringeworthy. A real shame, and I can't see them making the other two books into films, which is a good thing.
