You! Pirate! Stop pirating, or we shall admonish you politely. Repeatedly, if necessary

SpaMster

Be interesting to see how they intend to cover music and movies that you actually own on cd, dvd, bluray etc, that you are legally allowed to own a digital copy of, regardless of where you downloaded it from. How can they distinguish between people who have bought and and people who haven't? especially for older movies. I can understand films and music that are yet to be released to the public, such as movies currently at the cinema and stuff, but we are legally allowed to own a digital copy of music cd's we buy, it really doesn't matter if that copy was downloaded off the pirate bay or not if you own a physical copy does it?

Grand Theft Auto V: Violent, sweary and amazingly ambitious

SpaMster

Let me get this straight...

The reviewer thinks Bioshock Infinite, a game with zero re playability, which fell way short of most peoples expectations bar the story, is better than this?

'Liberator': Proof that you CAN'T make a working gun in a 3D printer

SpaMster
Facepalm

I take it The Reg haven't seen the automatic model they've built that's already been taken off their site then...

Really are missing the point here with all these articles, the reason it's been taken down is because anybody with the money to buy a 3D printer and toner can produce a working gun that can kill somebody. Saying 'oh the accuracy is terrible' is beside the point, these things can still kill people and could be very easily concealed. Grow up a bit please

Bill Gates offends Koreans after sticking hand down trousers

"Using one mitt with the other stuffed in a pocket is considered extremely rude in Korea. It is a manoeuvre only carried out when someone feels superior to whoever they are greeting."

WE CAN still be BETTER than Germany on broadband, says Ofcom

SpaMster
FAIL

BT Suck!

I'll start believing our broadband is getting faster across the country when my upload speeds get above 600kbps (BT). It's ridiculous that in this day in age, the vast majority of the country without fiber internet can't even live stream a video game in HD. It's not like were not paying enough for these services to warrant the up in speed! I'm paying for the fastest possible speeds I can get for my area, which is in the middle of a city where you'd think the speeds would be best, nope! BT are offering fiber internet for the same price as i'm paying for my normal broadband and it's not even available, this is about 2 years after they said they were installing the cable in my area!

Nokia Lumia 820 WinPho 8 review

SpaMster
Mushroom

"And you will need some sort of card: the phone has just 8GB built-in for OS, apps and media, and the Windows 8 Phone OS takes up well over 2GB out of the box. Once the Nokia Maps are accounted for that leaves just 5GB free."

What a crazy world we live in where having 5GB free space on your mobile phone is considered 'not enough'

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 game review

SpaMster
FAIL

Re: Make your mind up!

Plus I’ve just noticed the reviewer is the same guy that did the MW3 review, which makes the score even more bizarre. This game is miles ahead of MW3 gameplay wise. This isn’t an honest review at all.

Make your mind up!

Very strange review considering this site gave MW3, which is a game with a lot more issues and a lot less to offer, a score of 90%. Surely if you put this game down for being more of the same, you should have done it with MW3 as well?

Lego ponders Portal pack

SpaMster
Stop

I honestly think this would be a huge fail

I mean yeh these sets would be good for collectors, but kids are the major consumer group of lego, not 45 year old blokes with nothing better to spend their wages on.

I cant see that many kids saying "I want the lego portal playset for christmas"

I honestly think they'd be better off making a half life set, at least kids would be able to do something other than build a non working test chamber.
