iPhone users get more sex than Android fans

Scary

That's funny

I'd associate iPhone users with increased sexual activity, just not the type involving a partner...

Hotmail phish exposes most common passwords

Scary

Skewed

Of course the analysis results will be skewed because these are the people who fell for a phishing scam (I would suggest that such people probably tend to have weaker passwords).

Texan judge outlaws Word

Can't import or sell

No problem, they only license the product and distribute the software that users can license (not buy) on discs written in the US.

Microsoft! and! Yahoo! finally! sign! search! deal!

Scary

Yahoo!

What's the big deal with Yahoo!? They have a WWW directory thing that went out of fashion when Altavista came along, a quite popular mailing list manager they bought, the weather and financial charts for people who don't need anything better than "free". I wouldn't give $1 million for them.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II

Scary

Really?

"Back in 2005, the EOS 5D digital SLR marked the only way into full frame (24x36mm) shooting for Canon owners"

Canon had the full frame 1Ds as early as 2002...

Coca?

In the Andean countries of South America they chew coca leaves to cope with the altitude, I wonder if the new pills are based on anything like this. The US army bulk buying coca leaves could provide a nice boost to Bolivia's ailing economy.

iPlayer Politics: Behind the ISPs vs BBC row

Scary

Double Charged?

So if the BBC have to pay for the bandwidth, would the ISPs give away free subscriptions to end users? Or do they want to charge twice for the same bandwidth (seems a little unfair to say the least).
