Not Maetric not interested

Sorry, but if it's not metric it could be the size of a postage stamp for all I care.

Feet and inches mean nothing to me, thanks to my 1980s UK education.

Dog behind a gate

He's like a dog behind a gate, all bark.

If he didn't skip bail and hide in an embassy, no one would remember him.

Hard-up Brits 'should get subsidy for 10Mbps'

Ryan Kendall

10Mbps is practically useless for anyone with more than one PC.

Everyone should have 50Mbps minimum by 2020, we are falling far behind the rest of Europe.

I'm already payin for BT 24Mbps and ive got a friend who gets BT 200Mbps(FTTH) for the same price i pay for mine.

Prime Minister May hints at shaking up Blighty's 'dysfunctional' rural broadband

Ryan Kendall

No even rural yet

Obviously I'm in a town with a population of 11,000 is not classed as rural.

But welcome to Cambridgeshire, where BT have confirmed to me that they are not doing FTTC for the foreseeable future. But the small villages surrounding my town get Infinity already :-(

Apple seeks patent for paper bag - you read that right, a paper bag

Ryan Kendall

Patent on TIn design

I'm amazed they haven't tried to get a patent for a Tin. Then they can sue all the Tinned (Canned) food manufactures, for the shape being too similar to a Mac Pro.

Julian AssangeTM to meet investigators in London

Ryan Kendall

He jumped bail

Unless the UK government can deport him to Ecuador without it being a media circus then Assange is stuck in the embassy to rot.

Assange can only blame himself for his own stupidity.

You don't need no STEEENKING GPU, says Intel

Ryan Kendall

I hope they update the Intel GPU drivers more

It's a great idea, however Intel don't always seem to fix their drivers.

Blocking ads? Smaller digital publishers are smacked the hardest

Ryan Kendall

Ads on phones

Ads on webpages on phones are very annoying they fill up the 5" screen and you need a pin to close them. Otherwise closing the ad with your finger you start opening up Google Play, or AppStore.

the youradchoices adverts tend to be particularly annoying. "remember that office chair you looked at 3 months ago?" , "no?" , "well here are more charis for you to look at"

Apple users want Windows OS

Apple users want the Windows OS, but Windows users never want Apple OS.

Peeved bumpkins demand legally binding broadband promise from UK.gov

Ryan Kendall
Megaphone

Broadband prices in proportion

They should charge less instead of a flat fee using an up-to service.

Someone paying £35 p/m for a 24Mbit connection but only gets 6Mbit should only pay 25% (£8.75).

Also none of this throttling rubbish I would rather pay more to download more.

Curiosity needs OS upgrade before getting down to science

Ryan Kendall
Paris Hilton

Re: Wow

Your getting confused your connection getting 0.13MB/s not 0.13Mb/s.

0.13 (MB / s) = 1.04 Mb / s

So its only 4 times more bandwidth without any error correction.

You can always get satellite broadband if you want the real NASA feel to you internet :-)

Kindle

I love my Kindle 3 keyboard, Keep it simple. The more features they add the more it starts to sidestep away from what its really good at.

Why would i need a colour screen to read black and white pages?

UK cops cuff suspect after RnBXclusive takedown

Ryan Kendall
Meh

Oh noes

I can't get every song ever published for free anymore. Well... at least from this site.

This is the problem with something that is so prolific, as soon as one site goes down another comes up usually on a server housed "Outside the UK". Then again even having a link pointing to another site now seems go get you into trouble.

Look at Richard O'Dwyer who ran TVShack.
