WD to crash down five terabyte desktop job, mutterings suggest

Digital Video

1 Hour of raw SD (720x576) video transferred from MiniDV is 12gb. HD (1440 x 1080) is 4 times that. If you shoot a lot of video, or have more than one camera, 1TB disappears very quickly.

WTF?

Capacities

I don't understand why they don't develop full height hard drives any more, like the old Seagates. Then they could double the platters and therefore the capacity. Or am I missing something?

TalkTalk somehow retains most-complained-about-ISP title AGAIN

Affected by Talk Talk here too

They made a complete bodge job of my bills, I've had extra lines added that I never ordered, incorrect call charges, and to top it off a £600 'cancellation fee' when I got them to remove the line I never ordered...

And they insist that it's all correct and that I owe them over £1,000... ringing me and sending me letters though the post.

Absolutely shocking customer service as well. Many complains have gone unanswered.

Many (decent) firewalls block emails with a large (>100) number of recipients by default.

Fetch TV 8320HD

No love for the Fetch TV 8320HD reviewed previously? I've had one of these since new and they really have fixed the firmware to an acceptable standard now. Dual DVB-T2 tuners, DLNA, iPlayer, Sky Go built in, and can be picked up for £150 if you look hard enough!

Exams, contracts, and nuclear research: stupid, stupid, stupid

Mineshaft

pi * diameter (3.1415 * 0.7) = 2.2m per revolution. 10 revolutions = the required distance which takes one minute. There are six journeys, = 6 minutes. Add the 3 lots of loading time, your total is 6 minutes 30 seconds.

No calculator! I took GCSE maths in 1995, and A level Maths in 1997.

Outrage over 'sponsor a boob job' website

The Jester

Hmm

So what if the girls want to 'degrade' themselves for a free boob job, it's up to them isn't it? They should still have to take all the psycologists tests and whatnot even if they get the required sponsor money.

We all know people are willing to go to new lows just for a bit of recognition and the like... just watch CH4 at 9pm!
