No new subscription for me

Not a chance in hell. I will download it and watch it before I pay for a Sky sports subscription just for the priviledge of watching 10 races.

Fuck you Bernie, you greedy little fucking oiik.

Unfuckingbelievable....

The only fucking thing on BBC I pay a license fee to see. I'm fucked if I'm paying Sky the money for Sky Sports just to watch it. I'm afraid I may just turn into a freetard for that one.

Microsoft surprises Street with double-digit growth

CmdrX3
WTF?

You mean like Microsoft Office for Mac.....

or Microsoft Age of Empires II & III for Mac. There are a few even older titles as well.

How you have got from better than expected quarterly results to "Microsoft is in big trouble" other than through your own wishful thinking is beyond me.

MacBook batteries susceptible to hack attacks

A while ago

This puts me in mind of a nasty version of Dark Alex's Pandoras battery for Sonys PSP which targeted the Battery's firmware and turned the battery into a very nice modding tool.

Apple plans to prune iPhone 3GS price

CmdrX3
WTF?

It's not a Windows PC though....

It's a PC that runs Windows. There is no Microsoft lock in because there is a choice to run another OS on it. It may come with Windows, but you are not locked in to keeping it on. If you so choose you can put some form of Linux on it or you can put OSX on it if you so choose. Not something that applies to the iPhone.

Do you really think Apple has any more morality or ethics than any other corporate entity. The number that care for anything other than the bottom line are few and far between, and Apple certainly isn't one of them.

dabs.com says sorry for delivery debacle

CmdrX3
Facepalm

There were definitely some issues

I've been a Dabs customer for quite a few years with not a single problem. I ordered something while they were having the issues and it did take a bit longer than normal, but it was sorted out relatively quickly. I gather some aren't so lucky, but I will certainly be remaining a customer. although I'm sure there will be some that won't. I've had worse shopping experiences, with the worst one being with a certain overclockers retaiIer. THAT was a painful experience.

Bluetooth goes 3D with Apple

CmdrX3

Bluetooth my ass

Personally I think Microsoft are missing a trick here. They should be trying to license out the Kinect tech to TV & Monitor manufacturers for a remote control with motion and as a by-product integrated Xbox support as well as the possibilities it could bring to the PC through having it monitor integrated.

Custard pie activist slams IPCC 'grey literature' habit

CmdrX3
Childcatcher

It may very well be correct

Which is exactly the point he was trying to make, because the fact that the argument is being reviewed by the exact same people that are making the argument that any results even if they are correct will be looked at with suspicion because they weren't reviewed by impartial people. Personally I don't buy the climate change nonsense so I guess I'm what they have now labelled a "denier" which many nutcases in the climate movement would quite happily equate to a Nazi, which I'm fine with as long as I can label them "delusionists"

As a sidenote, is it just me or does the "Duke" in that picture look like a dwarf.

Back to iOS

I think their ultimate goal is to do with the laptop/netbook what they have done in the iPhone/iPad. Get it running iOS so they can create a closed system to force their customers into purchasing their software through the Apple App Store.

Teenage duo sentenced over credit card Ghostmarket

CmdrX3
WTF?

Not so much

I don't think it's a pretty immature statement in the slightest. I think maybe the five years mentioned is a little extreme, but a mandatory two years, not so much. Would your view change if it was some chav who mugged an old lady and went on a spending spree with her cash and cards, or a teen burglar pilfering your TV's and laptops. Just because it's online doesn't make it a victimless crime and as mentioned, some people are affected for years.

Jon Bon Jovi accuses Steve Jobs of murdering music biz

Snap out of it Jon!!!

Jebus, I'm kicking into my mid forties and even I think he sounds like an old Jewish man.

"You kids and yer crazy digital music"

I think someone might have failed to point out to the antiquated old fart that CD's are digital as well and I'm pretty sure predates Steve blowJobs iTunes by a number of years. Although iTunes (and possibly Steve too) does indeed suck sweaty balls..... but then I think Jon might too!!!

Black Ops is the best selling videogame EVER

CmdrX3
Thumb Up

You hit the nail square on the head

Three copies from me of that fucked up piece of junk. Two for the PC which to date still fail to work correctly, and one for the Xbox 360 which I believe is fine. They will NEVER receive another penny from me for that fucking franchise and I imagine there are many PC and PS3 owners who feel exactly the same.

BT vs Sky vs Virgin

CmdrX3
Coffee/keyboard

Some are, some aren't

The original V+ boxes were absolute piss, but the Samsung as someone mentioned is far far better. It is much quicker and doesn't have half the bugs although it still isn't perfect and still needs the odd reboot. I managed to get the Samsung because I complained to VM, and got an engineer out. He came out and said the new Samsungs were coming in so he put one of those filter things in and said call back in a month as they should be in high supply. I did and got one... even got the same engineer. TIVO is looking good, so hopefully that doesn't get fucked up as well, although if I don't win one of the the free 1000 then I ain't subscribing anyway.

I enjoyed smoking

I gave up about five or six years ago, mainly because it was just getting stupidly expensive. I totally enjoyed smoking. People say that those who say they enjoy it only do so because they are addicted but I no longer am and can say that I really did enjoy smoking.

PlayStation hacker defiantly posts 'bible' following police raid

He did indeed retire....

Only to later resurface as the brains behind Team M33 firmware which was effectively the DA "replacement".

He has since disappeared from the PSP scene, but I think it's more likely that he has moved on to other things.

Card surcharges face super-complaint

CmdrX3
Coffee/keyboard

Totally agree with Which, however....

Ryanair do provide an alternative and one of which I've availed myself. They used to offer free payment on Visa Electron, so I applied for a Halifax account that had a Visa electron Card. Then they switched to Prepay Mastercard, so I got one of those. If you are willing to travel light with Hand luggage, don't buy any of the useless crap they offer as optionals, grab a pre-pay card and book early enough then you can get very cheap flights. My wife and I travelled to East Midlands from Belfast and back for £12 in total. Then the fuckers stopped flying from Belfast so now I have to use another instead.

That said, the CC & DC fees are stupidly high & extortionate, and people really shouldn't have to jump through hoops with getting different cards and it's a prctise that needs to stop. It's also a practise that will be swiftly replaced by another money making scheme like charging extra for a window seat or charging for hand baggage should it be stopped.
