Microsoft: IE9 not yet 'broadly' available


just because

...it doesn't mean you use it. I downloaded IE9 just to see what a crock of shit it was compared to Opera (and to see how many features I have had with Opera for ages have been pinched by M$)

Beeb creates new global iPlayer post


Boring Banal Content

I am really glad I don't pay a licence fee to enable the socialist propaganda machine to make money selling Eastenders to the rest of the world.

My BBC?... not since 1997. The BBC is funded by an unfair illegal tax and is supposed to provide "public service" broadcasts. It used to do that up until a few years ago until it decided it would be a good idea to go head-to-head with ITV and make programmes with B list celebrities making idiots of themselves learning to cook/dance etc.

I watch what I feel is worth my time and effort on the iPlayer and I don't contribute a penny towards it. No such thing as a free lunch?

MPs bash broadband tax



@Howard Cole

Do you have gas and mains sewer out in the sticks?

Not everyone does. Some people have to pay for bottled gas and a lorry to take their shit away. That is their choice. Live in the countryside: don't expect all the amenities. Broadband is not as essential as gas or sewers.

If you a really going to change the way you vote over this you shouldn't be allowed a vote, but I suspect you are red through and through anyway.

Red Dwarf's Kryten exposes iPhone number

Ofcom opens debate on Freeview HD DRM to punters


Yes Please

They can DRM the lot, scramble it and issue you a card when/if you pay your TV license (which I don't).

I will then have the CHOICE to not have TV license and won't be harassed about it.

Do I side with the pussy killers or the kiddy fiddlers? I thought the BBC were biased until I saw this guy. Remove the Catholic Church from the world and you've got 1/5th of the way of curing mankind...

Tories oppose charges and speed cameras



Where pray did you get your figures? out of your hat? http://www.dft.gov.uk/pgr/statistics/datatablespublications/accidents/casualtiesgbar/roadcasualtiesgreatbritain20071

I work in road safety and it not speed but inappropriate speed that is a problem.

Bad driving is the problem. No argument. Someone, who thinks they are a safe driver because they travel everywhere at 40mph is more likely to cause more accidents than someone breaking the speed limit. We need more police on the roads and we need to throw the book at drivers for dangerous driving or when they are the cause of an accident. Cameras do not make safe drivers. If the motoring public saw a marked police car everyday along their route they would pay more attention. Once you know where a camera is located you brake and speed up, just like speed humps. Not paying any attention to anything else.

For example which catches more mobile phone users? a speed camera or a police officer?

Egyptians uptight about 'Artificial Virginity Hymen'


Bloody Hell

If it prevents a woman, who's had a bit of pre-marrital jiggy-jiggy, from getting stonned to death by these extreamists then it can't be all bad.

Microsoft harries XP-loving biz customers on to Windows 7


W2000 anybody?

My company is using xp with ie6 and notes 6.5. We have 50000+ employees so I can't see it changing anything until a major lock-in kicks in and we have no choice.

Personally I dropped XP for w2000 because of genuine advantage/antivirus bloat/forced upgrades to media player etc... oh and the fact I couldn't re-install it without ringing microsoft to ask if it was ok with them to use my software...

Windows 2000, just for running Money 2004 - all running in VirtualBox on ubuntu of course.

Tux cos there's no freetard icon
