Amazon stuffs games into Fire TV box: Soz, rivals... WE don't need to make cash on hardware

2StrokeRider

It doesn't do the one thing I bought the Apple TV for....yet no one mentions this is the glowing reports....AirPlay. Sure, they bring up that it'll do a feature like AirPlay for one of their tablets, but the Apple TV works (with a third party app) on my Lenovo lappy as well as my iPad.

Not a fanboi by far, but since my television already has all of the streaming services built in, all I needed was the wireless display.

Verizon jumps into wireless discount punch-fest with 'More Everything'

2StrokeRider

Saves me nada....

Verizon strikes again ... strikes out that is. I excitedly went to the site, and found that I could change from my old month to month unlimited data plan to a 10gb data plan for only about $20 more a month.

Sadly, only Verizon services my area, so I can't jump ship to a friendlier provider.

FCC honcho: Shifting our crusty phone network to IP packets starts now

Well, it'll certainly make the job easier for the US NSA!

Think of the savings to the NSA, no more conversion of telco call record databases or installation of costly wiretaps. Once it's all IP based they'll be hooked right up, I'm sure the rest of the worlds Intelligence services are just as eager for IP conversions.

Guess I can throw this tinfoil hat away now....

Now we know.....

Where stasis-frozen Gallifrey ended up.....it's stuck in our Sun and the meddling of 13 Doctors has caused this magnetic pole issue.

I'm sure it'll be sorted by the next episode.

Nasty BOFHses. It burns us! It burns...

2StrokeRider

Classic Simon. Almost on the level of the famous Ethernet Killer....a bit of kit the BOFH described that one day I shall construct just to keep on my desk.

Slap the silly git author with fishes. While there are a small number of Christians around the world, not just in the Americas, who believe in a sub 10k age earth, this is not a mainstream Christian belief. There are in fact people that believe the moon landings were a hoax. Pointing out the fringe is humerus, but not when false numbers are claimed.

Screw it, says NSA leaker Snowden: I'm applying for asylum in Russia

Silly oath breaking hacker releases information that simply confirms what everyone suspected and he's a bloody hero.

Almost as impressive as the agency that lets him slip four laptops into his trousers and walk out of the building....

Hopefully he'll take Anna's offer and it'll all be over.

The perfect gift for the pistol-packing 'Merkin: a handgun iPhone case

2StrokeRider
FAIL

Nope...American gun owners don't carry fake gun anything, nor do concealed carry holders advertise their carry. NRA members wouldn't be the folks you'd see with these, they'd be bought by the non-gun owning crowd thinking they are 'cool', and land them in an embarrassing or dangerous situation.

All in all quite a silly idea for a product, but there are quite a few silly people that will buy it.
