Have Brits fallen for Netflix, or do they still LoveFilm?

Martin Glenn
Thumb Down

Well the clincher for me being deaf was that Netflix has subtitles on nearly all of its streamed content, Love has pretty much none.

Freeview HD will deliver new IPTV channels this month

Martin Glenn
Thumb Down

No Support

I noticed some of these channels on my Samsung last night after a retune, The only issue for me is there is no network connectivity on my TV, by that I mean no NIC port or network support, So I guess that I will not be using them.

Peppa Pig told to belt up

Martin Glenn
Unhappy

For Christ Sake

Havent seen my 3 year old rolling around in muddle puddles yet just because peppa does. Although she did go through a stage of running around say gggrrrrr Dinosaur.

Maybe we should complain about In the Night Garden and the fact that Igglepiggle seems to like throwing himself backwards on the floor, I am sure that some kiddies will have tried that and realised that it hurt.

Windows 7 lessons - the must know before you buy

Is boot speed an issue

I dont want an OS that boots in uber quick time, I like the coffee feature, Turn on, Make Coffee, Smoke a Cig, Eat a 3 course meal, Read War & Peace. Have another coffee. Spend a week Trekking in the Amazon, Come home, Make a coffee, Smoke a Cig and maybe just maybe the sytem had booted when you got back to it. Ok I exaggerated slightly.

@ nobby

You cancelled your pre-order because Amazons pre order price doubled, Did you not read their price promise statement when you ordered it. I have left mine be as their price promise stated that they would honour the pre-order price.

Microsoft rebrands WGA nagware for Windows 7

Martin Glenn

Acronyms FTW

Using one of MS older acroynms this is stating to sound more and more risque.

Once you have played with the T.W.A.T does that not give you full access to the Critical Update Notification Tool. Now if i could just get some kind of KNOB gag in as well we would be on to a winner.

eBay endures revenue shrinkage deja vu

Martin Glenn

@ Neil Lewis

Agree entirley, Although byt the sounds of it I am not a seller of your calibre, I although more often then not sell unwanted items via ebay, But I have found it is increasingly more and more difficult to make any money from the smaller items, by the time listing fees, final valuation fees ,paypal fees and postage have all been taken into consideration. I also do not agree with the postive feedback for buyers and have been shafted a couple of times by no payers and cannot leave any warning for other users. Think i will stick to my local classified ads from now on at least they are free to list under a certain amount.

Violent games my ar*e

@ D@v3

Although it was the non-player of the game that comitted the crime, so by that understanding everyone should be playing games to better themselves?

A bit of Grand Therapy Auto, or Or maybe a line in Niko (tine) patches to beat the cravings

Hollywood to totally recall Total Recall

Martin Glenn
Heart

Who loves you and who do you love?

You beat me to the suggestion of the Running Man, But I agree with a lot of posters on here in both respects, If it bothers you that much don't watch the remake. Also there is a myriad of fine Sci-Fi out there that could be used for original ideas to base a good movie on.

They had Pens, OMG

I think we can rule out Pikeys, Chav's and Yoofs, For a start when was the last time you saw one with a Pen or even know how to hold one.

Oh yea right it is all that practice filling in claim forms and benefit stubs.
