Fines for crossing roads while TXTing enacted in Honolulu

Master Luke

Re: Need in UK

Have you ever heard of a pedestrian being fined for stepping out in front of a cyclist, while they have their nose glued firmly to their phone? Or not stopping at a pedestrian crossing to check that traffic has actually been able to stop for them before striding out on to it?

The rules of the road apply to everyone, pedestrians and cyclists included. In fact there is a whole section in The Highway Code entitled Rules For Pedestrians. I wonder how many have ever read it?

BBC clamps down on illicit iPlayer watchers

Master Luke

Re: illicit viewers?

"Indeed. I can't really see the BBC being able to argue in court that the licence to view the materials online extends only to BBC-approved clients."

"Apple get away with it?"

Apple isn't a national Public Service Broadcaster.

Master Luke

Why "Slate"?

Is it because it is running Windoze 7, so you'd be better off switching it off and writing on it with chalk?
