Re: UK Govt needs a kick in the balls

@Ledswinger

The individual causes of the fines may not be particulary newsworthy, whereas the fact that fines are levied is.

Re: For 500 points.... I was in Ibaraki prefecture when the quake hit...

Once you have a search result, google allows you to filter results to the 'Past hour' or 'Past 24 hours'.

Or use the advanced search.

Tech titans lose our loyalty: Are fanbois a dying breed?

Re: Are fanbois a dying breed?

@Fatman: "I've been happily buying and using Apple kit since 1989 and will continue to do so; and I attend Eucharist almost every Sunday morning."

These do not make you a fanbois or a 'religious nutjob'. What would IMO, would be to proselytise that others should copy you and that other devices or religions are somehow wrong.

Don't touch Sony, Panasonic's junk, says credit agency

Blip

I still use daily an old Sony Digicube radio which has an excellent FM receiver in it, seemingly better than far more expensive radios that I also have. I've also enjoyed their TVs over the years.

Now however, for the reasons you and others above give, I would hesitate to buy Sony gear.

Re: Thumbs Down Crowd

By the time I read the articles the important points have usually been made and usually with more knowledge than I have. I also generally read when at work and so don't normally have time to compose a reasoned reply.

Had a reply been posted that expressed what I have in this post, I would have simply upvoted that. I'm happy to not spend time adding another useless "Me too" type comment, but to simply up or down vote existing messages.

If you don't like the style of journalism here, fuck off and find somewhere that doesn't offend your twee sensibilities.
