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
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?
I can see wireless power taking off in wireless mice, but not much else
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
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.
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!

"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)
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
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: Actually... I think I agree with this...
It was being used for emails
RE: Get a life
I was rempted to get an SE phone, but I absolutely hate the buttons on them
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
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)
