UK.gov wants a cloud wizard at £1,000 a DAY. That's more than the prime minister's salary


Dont bother

It'll end up going to one of the old boy brigade, who (possibly) used the internet once...

Apple LIGHTSABERS to feature in The Force Awakens


Apple iSabers

I think they have them in the prequels.... Count Dooku's definately looked like he's been keeping it in his back pocket.

Crap mobile coverage costs UK biz £30m a week, reckons survey


£30m - pah, thats nothing compared to the billions in lost productivity in areas with good reception if the number of lazy ****** in my office with their faces stuck in their phone all day is anything to go by.

The ten SEXIEST computers of ALL TIME


To throw an odd one in there

The Pixar Image Computer - ok, technically it probably doesn't belong on this list as its not a standalone machine, but damn i wanted one in its day !

Could it be the inspiration for Mr Jobs' later cube fetish?

Oakley: 'smart' sunglasses ready to shine

Googles version would be like "They live" in reverse - and I'm all out of chewing gum...

Carmack did it carmack did it

Took me ages to track down this article from 3 years ago, but the big man has been there done that and is still waiting on the hardware to catch up....

Radiohead and chums demand copyright 'fair play'


Never a truer word spoken

"Art is art, it is made to be enjoyed.

People that obsess about earnings and money are making Commodities, not Art.

They are Manufacturers, not artists."

Couldn't agree more - and whats more, generally highly derivative manufacturers. Imagine if music fell under the same dubious restrictions as software (via patents) - oh you cant use them three notes together I own the patent on that, there wouldn't have been anything new released this century!

Now (as a fellow manufacturer) if only I could potentially be making money out of one days work for the next 90 years I'd probably be a happy man living as a tax exile too !

City of Heroes fingered in MMO patent lawsuit


Good luck to NCSoft

I'm sure the facts that NCSoft have recently had to lay off a large number of staff worldwide and that their US branch is based in Texas (world capital of backwards affordable luddite judges and juries) had nothing to do with picking on them first. I can see it now . . . Korean you say, ain't they commies. Must be guilty.

Here's hoping the rest of the MMO world get behind NCSoft on this one tho as surely it would be in all their interests to support them, and maybe contribute to the war fund on this one, and teach these nobody patent trolls the SCO lesson.
