French court: Google, Microsoft en ami must say 'au revoir' to pirates

o5ky

So they get a court order to block 16 domain names which takes months... and it takes minutes to set a new one up, why bother?

Apple patents technology to STALK YOU in your own HOME

o5ky

So the fact that I already have a smart home that monitors where people are and turns lights on for them, it also detects when the cat walks into the kitchen and makes sure they have enough water...

I mean seriously the kit would have already been patented!!

Yahoo! web! traffic! BIGGER! THAN! GOOGLE! in! July!

o5ky

So they actually think that 87% of people used Yahoo rather than Google and Bing? even Google would find it hard to get that percentage

Why can't they just give us Google Wallet in the UK!

All I want is to take my phone out on a night out and then not have to worry about taking cards out...

Apple users: Only Apple can track us! Not Google

o5ky

seriously you think Google are the only ones to have tracking cookies... it's just that Safari is such an insecure browser that they are easy to write for!

get a real browser and then you won't have the problems :)

China may axe 13-year console ban, games OK for kids after all

o5ky
WTF?

what's more confusing is that you can buy a computer (anyone can) and can play any game on there... whats the difference between a computer game and a ps3 or xbox game?

Apple rubbishes rumours of iPhone for the masses

Re: High End

Mercedes make the A class which is a small cheap car, this is more expensive than a Honda Jazz or Ford Fiesta but then it does come with the Mercedes name... doesn't make it a better car though!

Just like if Apple made a small iPhone, wouldn't make it any good just because Apple makes it! and anyway the iPhone 3, 4 & 5 are now 'small' compared to the trending handsets from other manufacturers

Yeah surely the B&W tvs dont have scart or other input (as mine didn't) meaning that they can't have a freview box unless it's plugged into a tape recorder then outputted to RF... how likely is that!

Dell dangles dongle PC at enormo-display-desiring road warriors

Thumb Down

so £40 for a cheaply made one or what's going to be £69.99 for a Dell one that's probably made to the same standards

or if you are going to do that you may as well plug your smart phone into the TV with an MHL adapter and a bluetooth keyboard / mouse and it's the same thing!

Close the company and sell the rights / patents to a new company then start training under their name... that should save paying the fine :)

Google skids car insurance comparison engine onto rivals' lawn

o5ky

Re: Have used...

That can be true, however being 22 and only 2 years no claims it's cheaper for me to use the price comparison sites. Even if I then go to the actual site their prices are higher than running the search first through a price comparison
