Attack of the ultra-nerd ...

Surely they're saving the Vulcan moniker for a planet orbiting 40 Eridani A when they find one?

I'll get my coat ...

Quantum boffins send data ACROSS TIME AND SPACE


Re: Did anyone else notice?

Are you certain?

Apple asked me for my BANK statements, says outraged reader


You know you don't have to buy Apple products from the Apple store? You can buy them through Amazon and all sorts of other outlets, ones who don't demand DNA tests before handing over your goods.

Channel Five reborn as Channel Five
