Re: Jacket

You can get plenty of waterproof jackets for sub £30 that are waterproof. You will sweat like you are wearing a blackbag but will still be waterproof.

As apposed to a typical Apple product then. It works if you are holding it correctly and you don't want to know where you are going.

ISPs 2Mbps

"will have minimum speeds of at least 2Mbps."

I think they read the contract wrong, when they say a minimum speed what they really mean is "UP TO" 2Mbps. I bet they also wrote unlimited in there somewhere too...

Appeals court decides Dotcom warrant was legal after all

Re: When Big Brother Is After You

"Who will protect you when we come and steal your home and possessions "

I think the better version of that would be:

Who will protect you when we come and made a copy of your home and possessions...

I will still have my home and possessions, and you will have a duplicate (which in my opinion is not a bad idea as I like my home and possessions).

Dell feels cold probe of US Dept of Justice amid Syria PC sales claims

JoshOvki

Re: Misplaced Anger Much? Not Dell's Fault here!

I think a more appropriate example would be:

It's like saying you should of known that an alcoholic would drive drunk so you should of never sold the car to the person that has given them the car keys.

Unless someone in Syria filled in the Warranty Card saying "Yes we use your equipment here for evil, mwhahaha" etc how was Dell to even know that their kit was being shipped to Syria?

The right time to drink coffee

JoshOvki

Re: Too much average coffee

You should try "The Plan" coffee shop in Morgan Arcade in Cardiff.

I have had some of the best coffee in there. There was also another small coffee shop in Sheffield (suburbs) that was also pretty spectacular.

Hollywood: How do we secure high-def 4K content? Easy. Just BRAND the pirates

Re: Charity

But with most DVD copies the original was purchased legally. I am just as likaly to get a copy from a charity shop as I am from a torrent site.

By definition it is not theft, just copywrite infringment.

Charity

"No, I mean thieves. If a book/film/whatever is on sale at £10 and you steal it; you just stopped the creators getting their cut of that £10. If you copy it - it's the same thing. (And I'll type this slowly so that you can keep up). THE. CREATOR. DOES. NOT. GET. PAID."

What if I go and buy the book/film/whatever from a charity shop? Second hand. The creator doesn't get paid then, is that also wrong? Or what if I buy a physical item and pass it onto a friend, they then pass it onto someone else, and so forth, is that also wrong?

Punter strikes back at cold callers - by charging THEM to call HIM

Re: :RTFA

"He also has a Leeds landline number, but reports that as this is shared only with his mum and best friend it doesn't get any cold calls. "

Sounds like a great plan, and he would have answered the calls anyway.
