So....

... you want a more expensive, less practical, less spacious Golf? With 1 fewer seats?

Congratulations! It's yours!

Radio hams unite to fight off new powerline comms standard

Bob Fish

Why can't we all just get along?

I have often thought the HAMs as the tin foil hat brigade, simply moaning for moaning's sake, but I am starting to see the light. I am a firm believer that an individual's activities shouldn't interfere with anyone else's so really, why can't the more stringent regulations for the powerline kit be enforced? Surely if they were unworkable then they would be there? If the more stringent regulations were enforced then we could have the powerline kit users (I am one, I think the concept is great) and the radio users living peacefully side by side?

Is this just too simplistic?

Jesus f***ing H Christ

What the hell is wrong with just getting out there and DOING EXERCISE? Have we become such a society of weak willed, tech dependent pathetically undisciplined numpties that we need devices to tell us when to exercise, and how much? Is it really the case that without this people won't realise they need to be healthy? Get up off your lazy arse, have a look in the mirror, check if you're still FAT and then go and do something about it!

I really do despair sometimes.

Reg Hardware Awards 2011 Winners

Be Broadband...

Glad to see them getting a mention. In my humble experience they are impressive - good, efficient switchover, unerringly consistent performance and reliability. I like them.

Hologram Live

Bob Fish

A bit naff

The concept is good, but it's just a bit, well... naff. The '3D' aspect reminds me of those early PC games - and not in a good way - and the orientation seems to be based on the handset being horizontal, which means that the more normal way of looking at the phone when it is nearer vertical puts the perspective out of whack.

Still, a harmless waste of 64p I guess. Worth a try.

WikiLeaks payment service threatens to sue Visa, MasterCard

FAIL

Oh the irony...

... it has probably already been mentioned, but I found it really funny when I read that the 'hacktivists' behind the DDoS attacks were campaigning for 'making sure the Internet stays a free and open place'.

I mean. Really.

Boris bikes for tourists delayed till year end

Bob Fish

Still doesn't address the fact that....

... the majority of the people who use the Boris bikes are idiots - they don't wear helmets, have no idea how to ride bikes and have no idea of the highway code.
