Windows Vista update 'kills' USB devices

Baht At

@zzz

Nope it's a quad core on an asus PK5SE, 4gb memory and shed loads of SATA disk space.

All the USB devices worked until sometime last week at which point all but one slowed to USB1 speeds and some result in unrecognised device errors.

Basically yet again their automatic updates screwed with the system and broke it.

total bloody rubbish

Most USB devices on my machine (vista x64 ultimate) seem to be operating in USB mode with the exception of 1 memory card reader (usb2 speeds) and 2 WD passport portable harddisks (won't work at all)

Worse thing is they all worked perfectly in the beta version of sp1

Local council uses snooping laws to spy on three-year-old

Oh dear

I'm sure we were reassured that these powers would only be used against serious crims.

Like parents who try to get their children into the school of their choice.

Personally I think we should have introduced internment for crimes like that.

The 'green' car tax grabs that don't add up

Baht At

rubbish

The £100 insurance for £90 problem really exposes the fallacy of this argument because as sure as hell insurance companies make profits and consequently collectively we must pay £100 to insure the £90 problem the premium being what is necessary to induce companies to offer insurance.

So while £85 per tonne might be the cost of climate change if we want to solve it a premium may well be payable to induce change.

Has your shifty foreign neighbour got 16 mobes?

Oh dear

I regularly buy Pay as you go SIM cards from local newsagents (£20 credit on them for £10) never register them and throw them away when used - because it's easier and cheaper than registering - I guess I'm a terrorist.

'Boil a frog' ID card rollout to continue until 2012

Baht At

Hmmm

Now I've got all this drug money I need to launder .... I wonder if I could invest it in setting up one of these private biometrics verification companies.

I'd at least double my money flogging extra IDs.

Paris Hilton

HD tv?

Given that compared to NTSC PAL is already high definition do we really need to see every pimple on some porn starlet's nether regions?
