TomTom make the Global Positioning System?

Picky I know, but I had to point it out. - There have been too many rubbish headlines on the Reg recently. It seems to be turning into a tabloid newspaper.

LOL, I can just imagine Julie picking up her desk phone and talking to the BOFH to see if anything can be done.

UK to outlaw cartoons of child sexual abuse

Must get home now.

Guess I'll have to leave work early today and incinerate my copy of Akira before someone spots it. (I'd been wondering how they were going to do that rape scene in the re-make - I guess it will be removed.)

Hip, Hip, Hooray for Censorship.

I know there are all these people out there who love the idea of 'Free Speech' but I for one, as a parent, welcome some sort of control and accountability.

The internet is a free and open space and anyone can set up a system like Wikipedia. If you don't like the way a particular collection of information is censored then use another or set up your own. That's what the internet is all about.

I feel outraged at people like Eric Moeller, Ian Clarke or Mike Godwin who think that the sexual exploitation of children is a reasonable price to pay for freedom of speech.

PS3 sales to surpass Wii's... in four years' time

Tony

Who cares?

Why oh why do people keep comparing a late release last generation console with the PS3 or Xbox360?

The WII should only ever be compared to the PS2 or XBox, it is technologically the same generation as them.
