Re: Having a TV and TV Licence is not compulsory....
I totally agree with you. But be prepared to be downvoted by the BBC lovers.
Yes I know it's 'the law' to have to pay this TV tax, but times change and this should too.
I have Sky, but don't watch anything BBC. They have, what 2 channels, then another 2 after 7pm? Prime time they have 'The One Show' and Eastenders? Erm. No thanks. The odd imported US show on BBC Three maybe?
I prefer my Knowledge pack from Sky where I can record documentaries and watch them whenever I get a few minutes. I like most people with a PVR fast forward adverts so no bother there.
If I had the option, I'd prefer an opt-out of the BBC TV Tax.
Yes I understand there are a lot of BBC supporters out there who can't live without it, so there should be a subscription service so you can keep your 2/4 channels advert-free.
It's about time the TV Tax stepped into the 21st century.
"chased by a police helicopter"?
RE: sticking with the brand next time
surely it depends what the manufacturer has available at the time. I thought I'd get another HTC after 3 years of ownership. I saw the Samsung Galaxy Note II and what it could do so I bought that last week. One thing is clear: it won't be an Apple device
"No because for once Apple are genuinely offering something nobody else is."
Yes, I often think the one thing missing from my laptop is another 2,500,000 pixels.
There's a reason nobody was offering it before this...
Hmmm, I'm beginning to see a trend

Amount of ice in Bering Sea reaches all-time record
lol - chocolate milk? What are you, 8?
I wouldnt say 'clearly upped the low light capabilities in the mk2' - 14 seconds in on that direct comparison video from the first post shows - you can't see any more than you could with the mk1.
The left of the bed is still dark. Sure the picture is more yellow, but no increase in light sensitivity.
Aside from all the legal discussions...
it seems a bit 'out-of-date' already with "1024 x 600 display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor". HTC have a 1.5GHz dual core out for their mobiles, and are about to release a 720p on a 4.3" screen.
Dirt vs GT5
I'm glad you kept comparing Dirt to GT5. Having owned Dirt 2 for a few months, and only recently played on a friends GT5 I find the 2 like comparing COD MW2 to Doom. GT5 is awful. Dirt 2 allows you to get a 'feel' of the car around the dirt tracks, spinning wheels, oversteer etc. Trying a rally track on GT5 was like taking a Smart car laden with lead weights around Silverstone.
Give the man credit*
But really, "People rely on the security of systems and anyone who comes before the courts who has gone through these security systems from their own ends can expect custody," - he should be offered a job, not a prison sentence! He'd be a great asset to have on board for security testing!
still no BBC iPlayer for Xbox
so the BBC make an 'app' for a device which has been out for only a few months, yet still havent developed the iPlayer for a media device which has been out since 2005!?
We could compare numbers here....
....so I will. 7.5 million iPads, 45 million Xbox 360s. Great. BBC TV tax well spent!
Air Display which as a few have mentioned is currently available on the App store - at $9.99.
This new app is $1.99.
I'm guessing if they do the same thing, there's the answer
If it was 7 inches
...people would complain that it was too small (re: Samsung Tab).
The Fruit company seem to have made a very popular 10" one, so why not copy the successful model? I for one would prefer 10" rather than 7"
Paris because she prefers 10" (allegedly)
Google's Picasa already did it
Picasa has had this feature for ages and I think its great.
Your report said its being rolled out across FB's US users over the next few weeks, well I've already uploaded a few at the beginning of this week and had a play with this face recognition - It really saves time! Not 100% accurate though (although that could be because it was the office xmas party and we were looking rather...er shall we say...well fuelled!!)
Am I the only one who actually likes this new feature?
I usually have to open up a few results in different tabs because I know a few of them wont be what Im looking for - this saves the hassle!
RE: Let me guess...
There is a cheap 40mph electric only car available - http://www.nicecarcompany.co.uk/my-car.html
shame it looks like a dogs dinner though!
I'll wait for a Tesla for my 1p/mile motoring. It'll probably take a few years to save up the stupid £92,000 price tag though. The Yanks get it for only $108,000 (today's exchange rate makes it £60,000) - and its built in the UK by Lotus!!!
car photographer caught out?
Judging by the angle of the shot of this GoogleCar, it seems it was the driver who took this photo, and looking at the quality, it must be from a camera-phone, therefore slap a nice 3pts + £60 fine to Mr Ziad al-Hasso and posting it on the web ;)
mines the one with the blue flashing lights
I was following this in Leeds
it was the same car (tell by reg plate) on 12th June. btw he was quite rude in assuming I'd let him out of a junction - typical southern driver! he then proceeded to snap away without prior permission!! (LEDs flashing on the camera equipment) whilst merrily strolling along past the main white building at Leeds University.
I didnt pull a face or flash anything a) because I was driving and b) quite shocked at his cheeky junction-exiting manoeuvre
protect your ICBM with...
the same stuff on the space shuttle - all the laser does is heat the skin of the missile - so if this is highly insulated, then the ABL is a bit useless! ;)
I still have my 32MB Rio in some storage box :) ahh how I loved to hear the same 8 tracks over and over again at school... everybody thought the MiniDiscs were the next big thing - at a time when I was running around with my non-moving part MP3 player.... - oh how I laugh now ;)
Re: Lewis Hamilton
"If thats the case how come LH is doing so well racing in F1?"
because F1 is actually like a video game - didnt he even say he'd never been on a particular track in real life, just learnt from a video game - then proceeded to win 1st place.
Football actually requires physical movement of those things under the desk called "Legs":
Edit your details
can you not just edit your personal details to e.g. Joe Bloggs, 1 Made-up Street, London etc... then they can keep the incorrect information on their database for as long as they like!
can I have my nobel prize now?
"If your car is broken into, particularly if you have an in-built satnav as part of the dashboard..."
"...Better still, police suggested, remove the satnav from the car altogether."
I'd love to carry my dashboard round with me everytime I leave the car - thanks for the suggestion bobbies! Now go and arrest someone pilfering someone else's Wi-Fi...
