Almost as lame as when they voted to call the first space shuttle (which never even went into space) 'Enterprise'.
Cos I love strapping a camera to my RC Cessna and doing <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTmUo5xSU5w">this</a> at the weekends.
Mobile gaming with hardware controls
Just for information (cos I only found out about it 2 weeks ago) anyone who has an android phone with bluetooth and wants to play with a real controller, you can connect both Wii and PS3 controllers. Works brilliantly with snes and n64 emulators.
I don't care where the red dot goes . . .
. . . I just want to know why it's called the second hand when it's clearly the third hand.

I checked online first. Ordering direct from Google gets it delivered in 3 days time at a saving of £0.04. I 'd rather play with it now thanks ;)
I'm not surprised they're going under though
Went shopping for a Nexus 7 last night. Found them in Currys and PC World at £169 and then next door in Comet at £184.

"This development has been ongoing for long time now. It is older then me already."
Not wanting to appear too picky, but surely it always was, or never will be older than you. Unless you're aging at a different rate than everything that goes on around you.
You're doing this on purpose aren't you

Are you all MAD??
Anything you add to your bacon that isn't more bacon is just making it taste LESS of bacon. If you want your wierd so-called sandwiches to taste or ketchup, brown sauce or garlic nonsense then why waste any precious bacon on it at all?
Well you could try going to google.co.uk and searching 'stormfront', then try the same search on google.com#
I literaly (and yes I do know what the word means) did a double-take when I saw the huge STORMFRONT shop sign a year or so ago in Bury St Edmunds.
Re: This is not a title
"I call bullshit"
You can call whatever you like, doesn't stop it being 100% true. The laptop is a touch screen acer that I picked up ex display. The win8 developer preview was highly anticipated specifically because of the touch screen capabilities of the laptop. A week after I began using it, the compulsary Metro interface was pretty much impossible to navigate. I had office, visual studio, numerous IDE's and the CS suite installed, along with lots of other tools. every single Metro panel was identical. A typical installation that might result in a folder containing 5 or 6 easily identifiable icons in the old windows start menu will result in another half screen of virtually identical plain coloured metro panels. I haven't 'run off' to anything. I have a spare laptop that I couldn't wait to get the Win8 preview off so thought I'd try Linux. I'm baffled by the complexity of Linux for the most part but since every other machine I have is running Win7 I think it'll be nice to stick with Linux on the laptop for now and see how it goes.
My point was that when Vista came out there was a huge number of people who decided to 'upgrade' their new computers to WinXP. This time I think things will be far worse for MS. Non-technical users who have become accustomed to the look of Win7 will be more open to the idea of switching to Linux than ever before.

I went from being a die hard Amiga fan to a die hard windows fan and wouldn't have anything to do with the hated and mysterious Linux.
Then I installed the Win8 developer preview on a spare laptop. What the f*** are they thinking? I stuck with it for a few weeks but it was utter garbage. And this was a touch screen laptop too. Now (thankfully) I've seen the last of it and, though I never thought I'd ever say it, I have Linux Mint running on the lap top.
When Win8 is out and is the only option on new machines I'm pretty sure there will be an awful lot more people switching to a familiar windows based interface too.
Sorry if I'm missing something here but how does paying £x up front equate to a 'free copy of the game'?
That reminds me of the huge poster that used to greet me at Colchester station every day that said "Free evening and weekend calls for £15 a month"

I have a theory about the lack of funnees. IMO the point it stopped being funny was when guest stars began appearing as themselves. In the early days they would play characters but now its all about coming up with the most unbelievable story lines to explain how Homer J gets to meet this weeks celeb guest.
Is it any wonder when . . .
. . . last week I bought FEAR2 for xbox for £2.98 (Used) then took it back to exchange the next day when it dawned on me I'd already played it. I didn't have the reciept so they couldn't give me a £2.98 credit, instead they took it as a trade in and gave me £6 for it.
Re "... what will we actually do with them?"
Two words - Starship HoloDeck
Surely the simplest solution to the whole personal PIN number problem would be for researchers to calculate the most secure 4 digit sequence possible and then everybody uses that. I don't see how that could fail to work.
How . . .
. . . is the severity of the first accident anything to do with mobile phone useage? The truck driver was texting but that doesn't explain why 2 school buses were also involved.
