Physics GCSE: 'insultingly easy, non scientific, and vague'

@Ian Sargent

If it's anything like the trend I saw when I was doing my A-levels, the increasing ease of Maths/Science exams is undeniable. You could literally line up past papers year by year and see them get easier.


Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot K800i photo phone

Decent phone, shame about the review

El Reg's hardware reviews are never much good: look at their M600i review or N70 reviews, for example - little concrete information to base a purchasing decision on.

I've owned a K800i for a fortnight now and am pretty happy with it. I was pleased with the slickness and speed of the UI compared to other phones I've used.

The mail client works well, although its insistence on checking your mail every time you send an email is annoying. The built in web browser is functional enough, but I'm definitely going to try Opera Mini now. Java midlets run very well - it's got the latest J2ME VM, AFAICS.

The camera is OK, but the shutter lag is very annoying and the image quality, especially in difficult lighting conditions, is not that good.
