What's wrong with that?

"gave the impression that [Phones4u] were mocking and belittling core Christian beliefs"

Microsoft acted on Opera's modified browser proposal?

Jamie Edwards
FAIL

Opera is a sore loser

I see nothing wrong with listing browsers by their popularity. Opera has sour grapes.

Apple updates iPhone firmware

@James

You should have bought a "decent phone" if you wanted those features. It is stupid to buy a phone without this kind of stuff and then moan that it doesn't have any of it.

Great!

I am so glad Apple are such a customer-focused company. They have listened to all of their customer feedback and implemented some really sought after features.

32bit?

Anyone noticed that this guy (who took apart the MBP) said:

"Apple is sticking with 32-bit chipsets for their portables, so you'll be stuck at 4GB RAM forever with this machine."

Jamie Edwards

Firefox hits 400m download milestone

Jamie Edwards

Inaccurate!

I myself have downloaded FireFox over the last 3 years more than 30 times (between new computers or reformats). I wonder how many others have done the same as me.

Free Software Foundation plans protests at 'corrupt' BBC

Jamie Edwards

"I am sorry, Lin-what?"

People who see these protests aren't going to know what the heck these people are protesting about - and the second someone begins a sentence "It is an operating syst-...." the will zone out.

Why do these people see themselves as entitled to this service on their operating system of choice?

Microsoft still just re-Surfacing Windows

Jamie Edwards

So?

So, what exactly is the author wanting Microsoft to do? Microsoft aren't claiming this is something brand new from the ground up. Why reinvent the wheel? They have formed a new layer (new platform) to sit on an existing platform they know well.
