@ Shaun (WTF????)

But a list of the 12 best drivers wouldn't have anyone German who drove a red car...

It's because they are, will be, and always have been 'crisps'.

Stop, for American "English"

Philips prices up 21:9 ratio 'cinema' TV


@ Useless gimmick

Not at all, this will give me the excuse I need to buy my entire movie collection all over again!

I just can't understand people torrenting.

Pirate Bay prosecutor tosses infringement charges overboard


How many ISPs

Have we seen advertising something like "Upgrade to this, you can download music or video faster"

Would you know a base station if you saw one?


"Dead spot"

Shouldn't that be for Dixons?

Unofficial fix issued for Vista networking flaw


Random disconnects

I find switching off my wireless card then back on again results in a reconnect 99% of the time on my Toshiba.

Still a massive pain in the backside though, and why I mostly use XP still (and I'd have to admit that I like Vista, I don't have any other problems when using it)

Don't worry about the next few days, you already do.

"...every banking site I've ever tried..."

So you, Webster Phreaky, have an iPhone?

I think I need to go and lie down.

Black helicopter: Where's the real Webster Phreaky?

Another 60 days' free MobileMe service, madam?



I've no interest in this service. But I still have it available in control panel, thanks to the latest iTunes. QuickTime and the constant nagging about Safari were bad enough - anybody want to buy a used iPod?

@ Kevin Gurney

Jobs Horns

re: Speed up England!

Funnily enough, I was following a car at 55mph on an A road just last night when without warning the guy hits the brakes hard, despite there clearly being nothing ahead of him.

Nothing coming the other way so I passed rather than do likewise, and as I sailed past I was thinking "'phone", but there didn't appear to be one. He was actually slowing for the "safety" camera...

(Steve Jobs because I see drivers all the time now selecting tracks on their iPods).

@ Sampler

Surely at current MS exchange rates, that's a million pounds?

Self correcting?

Surely the best kind of self-correcting process is to get facts right BEFORE publishing? Or is that old fashioned?
