Ghosts of Christmas Past: Ten tech treats from yesteryear

dvd

Re: Out that whole lot..

Ooooooooh Vectrex. I had one of those - it was great. So called because of it's vector graphics. I got it in a Woolco closing down sale with a shedload of games, played it for years, kept it in the attic for longer, then sold it on ebay for a huge profit. Still a cult machine, I understand.

Why do Smart TV UIs suck?

dvd

Dream telly

My dream telly is a reasonable sized screen, good picture, good sound and a shedload of connectors. Not even interested in internal tuners.

Doesn't sound hard, does it?

High school student expelled for dropping F-bomb in tweet

dvd

Re: the punishment

The book mentioned that an incident of cannibalism had occurred in the past. It did not dwell on it.

And it's not wholly a book about the fighting, it's a book about the lengths that those in authority will go to to control a population and (ultimately) about the resisting of that authority.

Read the book if you want to cite it, don't rely on second hand reports from the internet.

Local radio stations band together against DAB

dvd

Nowt wrong with DAB

I have 3 DAB radios, 2 in the house and one in the car.

The reception's fine on all 3 in rural Scotland. The only drop out that I have experienced is on the M8 in Cumbria where I can't get FM either.

One radio's on its first set of batteries and the other is on its second.

The only criticism that I have is that the bit rate is too low.
