Do forgive me, I mean a 'large percentage' not 'large minority'. I should proof read a little better.

@John Wilson

Unfortunately I really do not underestimate a good proportion of teachers. The saying "Those that can do, those that can't teach" has never been truer than it is at the moment. I worked around teachers in schools for years, and a large minority will struggle with the most basics of programming, and that is for the 'specialist' IT teachers before we even start talking about the many non-specialist teaching IT and other subjects in schools today. The British education system is shocking.

Microsoft celebrates the death of IE6

<user />

That will be the fucked Alpha Channel support in PNG images..

I *hate* IE6. It would disappear quicker if MS allowed people running dodgy copies of XP to upgrade their versions of IE.

Airbus brews Scandium smackdown for carbon Dreamliner

<user />

I am fed up of hearing people compare the 787 to the A380 - different aircraft for different markets, why cannot the media in general not grasp this? Not knocking EI Reg by the way here.

Of course point to point is the future, its a big no brainer. One of the reasons LCC make such a fortune and are largely very successful is they allow people to travel direct, using smaller aircraft, more frequently.

The A380 is suited to a hand full of very high density routes only, as mentioned in the article, London - NYC for example.

To be fair, Angry Birds is over rated shite. Just had to share that.

I concur with this statement:

"I pity anyone that can look and a stunning picture like that and still just be seeing Angry Birds.

Put it away, you'll go blind."

A beverage for you, sir.

Windows 8 ribbon entangles Microsoft

Thumb Up

The Ribbon isn't THAT bad, lets be fair, once you get used to it. We are just so used to menus it makes it a little bit difficult to adapt.

I still struggle to find things in Office Ribbon despite having used Office 2007 + since release but I am not sure I would go back to the old menu system.

Got a website? Pay attention, Cookie Law will come

<user />

@windrose

While I would love to fully agree with you about the URL, how many times do you see things advertised on the TV or in the media some place as domain.com/product ?

Some things after the actual domain do need to be humanly readable, but mostly, yes I do agree with you.

Granted this is all going to becoming less relevant with this current fad of putting "Search for XYZ online" in ads these days.

It is a little bit crazy in some ways is this law. Not all cookies are malicious.

Granted some are bad and are used for profiling your web browsing habits etc etc, but then, just about every website you log in to uses cookies to establish a session. If you refuse to accept cookies, how the fuck will you establish a session in the stateless web?

Perhaps the law needs a little refining so it only applies to advertisers etc and not people needing to use cookies as an integral part of their web apps.

And just to add as good advice as ever - we should all be using secure cookies!

Do we really need to continue this speed related numbers pissing contest? Bored of the JavaScript engine speed contest? Lets move onto the actual DOM now.

The real bottle neck is the connection, not the page render speed. This numbers pissing contest is frankly becoming a fucking joke.

I agree, we need comments - comments are what makes the articles what they are.

Shame, nice app otherwise. Please add comments so I have no reason to use the mobile site.

Could someone fix the annoying issue with video's embedded in articles on the mobile site too - this causes the Jesus phone to break the page - or at least it does for me.

The one thing that fucks me off most about forums and their communities is the + fucking 1 replies.

Just what I want to see now when viewing web pages, along with all the Facebook, Twitter, Buzz, Digg, Slash dot buttons etc is a fucking +1 button.

It is unnecessary. Seriously, fuck off with this +1 nonsense.
