Re: I am reminded of the famous CD32 billboard..

Dan that's nonsense. The CD32 was the best selling CD game platform at one stage (bigger than PC CD). Sales were really good considering it was only on sale for under a year. They literally couldn't make enough of them in time for Christmas 1993, then Commodore got a sales ban due to a patent dispute on some XOR patent. They weren't allowed to sell it in the USA, then they went bust. Unfortunately most of the games released were just shovelware conversions from A1200 games. Some of the exclusive CD32 titles were awesome, but alas, it was too little too late.

So sad :(

Re: Antitrust?

Top tip: If you are going to act like a dickhead and start a post with 'Uh', then it really pays to know what you're talking about, or else you might look like an idiot when corrected.

Video: Dyson unveils ROBOTIC TANK that hoovers while you're out

J. R. Hartley

Can it deal with cat poo?

I read recently a story a about a robotic hoover spreading cat poo in a lovely spiral over every inch of the living room, and never working properly again. I can't get that image out of my head. I guess you could call it a cat-ass-trophey.

Cheer up, Nokia fans. It can start making mobes again in 18 months

J. R. Hartley

Hmmm...

Is it allowed to start selling phones in 18 months, or start developing phones in 18 months?

Either way I wish them all the best, but all the goodwill has gone, and they would need to make the mother of all phones to entice me back.
