Due for an upgrade on 30 May and was going to upgrade to the Compact IV, but they'll probably discontinue that when the V comes out - and I'm not paying £50 a month for my contract and I don't want to pay for my phone
RE: Download cap
But expected, really
RE: 3 & T-Mobile
"great move by T-Mobile"
Even better move by 3, they'll actually have a decent network!
RE: So what will happen?
You'll gain T-Mobile
I can think of one
“in every situation in which a violent rampage has occurred”, the perpetrator had an “addiction to so-called killer games”
I can think of one famous german "violent rampage" about 70 years ago in which the perpetrator didn't have an “addiction to so-called killer games”
Is there any change to the potential sentence?
"because getting evidence was proving too difficult."
Well then that's OK then, let them off
Muzak is a company?!
I thought it was just the music style
I can see wireless power taking off in wireless mice, but not much else
"collect anonymised information [...] together with personal details"
How anonymous can personal details be?
What if it's a cheap chinese knockoff?
I quite like Win7
I only bothered to try it because I happened to replace my PC when the beta came out.
Review: I'll use it if I have to wipe/replace my current computer after it's been released, but it's not good enough for me to specifically remove XP to use it
I don't see the problem with them using the RRP for products not on sale, because I thought that the RRP was the Recommended Retail Price, not the price that other people are selling it at
The mouse sounds like a good idea though, I'd get one*
*probably not, because my wired ball mouse works fine
RE: Why the new law?
The new law is needed as it enables the government to prosecute the consumers rather than the suppliers
Based on 9,000 games at an RRP of £50 (as is usually the case nowadays), that's £450,000 for the games
The remaining 21,000 discs are worth a combined £550,000.
Simple maths concludes that the remaining discs are £21.43 each.

That will be down to the one-way system in Sheffield bein impenetrable to even the locals
So much for them refusing to be involved...
What happens to people that have had this holding charge taken out and incurred bank charges because of it (either by the monet being taken out of missing other payments due to insufficient funds)?
The problem isn't with the age ratings. The current system is fine, it's enforceable by law and game sellers don't sell inappropriate games to children (for the most part). The problem is parents that buy the games for the children then get outraged that the kid's game with the 18 label is unsuitable!
I was disappointed at first due to not being called Michael
But then I remembered that Michael is my middle name, so that's close enough
Worth getting just for this
RE: Football in HD !!!
"If you want sport (of any sort) in HD why not get off your arse and go and PLAY it"
Because I'm English, and as such, have absolutely ZERO chance of playing in Euro 2008 (even without taking ability into account)
Some of these features were supposed to be there at launch!
I've just got it up and running on my XBOX and now it's on the telly anyway!
"Microsoft has already recalled thousands of power bricks worldwide because of worries over a potential fire risk. But the company claims gamers can minimise the risks by unplugging the console and avoiding bending the power brick’s cord."
Nope, that was the XBOX and the recall of the power lead
RE: It may be Oxford...
I think that's probably the "Around six per cent of married internet users said they first met their partner online"
The second half of the article sums ups fairly well what I was thinking as I read the first half.
What strikes me
Is that if MS didn't bundle IE with Windows, how would people get online to download Firefox/Opera/IE?
I'm sure with Google's love of ads this will just be another way of refining the adverts we see, but basing them on medical records... If nothing else, it should allow spammers to check if the people they're sending viagra emails to really need it
RE: A bad workman blames his tools
"put some innovative, interesting programming out, rather than formulaic trash"
They did, and they've closed them
RE: Actually... I think I agree with this...
It was being used for emails
Not read this through
but if i remember correctly, it doesn't have wi-fi, does it?
I think that's what put me off getting one
RE: Get a life
I was rempted to get an SE phone, but I absolutely hate the buttons on them
Cheers! didn't realise it did that!
"Guitar Hero III and Rock Band are totally unavoidable in shopping trips to consumer electronics stores"
Considering the fact that Rock Band isn't out yet, I'd have to disagree
I was looking at upgrading to this phone (as a T-Mobile Vario III), cheers for the review!
I'm told the Vario doesn't come with Sat Nav out of the box, is it possible to install tomtom or similar on it?
RE: Nothing is uncrackable
The trouble is, it's possible to just rip it from the disc and convert to WMV-HD, bung it on a DVD-DL and play it on the XBOX 360 (or the PC)
"he claimed the company may choose not to exploit the opportunity because the likes of Sony and Nintendo are likely only to allow onto their consoles games that carry a BBFC rating."
Well, that and the fact that there's no way of downloading games and playing them on the PS2 or Wii without using mod chips etc
RE: Looks like it didn't help much...
But not all the Halo 360s have the 65nm. Only one batch is confirmed so far
So, in filing these pictures...
he made tham available on the courts systems "to anyone of any age."
I've had this on 4 things I've paid for
and had to put my actual address in the comments for each item
RE: Yet more evidence
My advice: Let it.
But how much is that in sterling?
To the person that said 1080p was not supported by the 360, Virtua Tennis 3 is in 1080p, as is Splinter Cell: DA
RE: Audio Technica Soundburger
I saw someone with a similar device at a record fair last year, I suppose it's best to have a listen before you buy
A couple of times
I've been sent down a road that doesn't exist, which is due to out of date maps.
Once though, I was actually told to do a U-turn while I was driving down the M62 (unlike some of the stories on El Reg, I ignored this advice)
it will also ban the listing of any part that's used in the firing of a gun
Such as fingers!
