Jun 19th 2009 10:33AM I would have bought a 3G S, but not at the prices O2 are charging new customers!
Jun 10th 2009 8:49AM this is why london needs a new runway! people complain it's bad for the environment, but surely all these flights circling are bad for the environment? regardless of whether you think there should be more flights out of heathrow or not, to me the runway seems like a good thing
(i guess the environmental people think that there should just be no flights at all, and then there'd be no more holding patterns, but to me that seems a bit ridiculous. why not just ban the sale of livestock products? they produce more greenhouse gasses according the UN)
May 20th 2009 3:35PM isn't it ridiculous they were allowed to built that huge hotel right next to lake louise?!

Apr 20th 2009 12:21PM The HD category is now up - http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/tv/bbc_hd
Also, it works on Macs, both for streaming and downloads, and has done for a while now (although not in HD)
Mar 3rd 2009 9:55AM Doesn't the Apple TV already support WiFi-n at 5Ghz? So the only Apple product that would be slowing down your network would actually be the iPhone/iPod touch.
Dec 14th 2008 5:53AM maybe i am missing something here, but when a tv screen refreshes at 60hz, isn't that typically 60hz interlaced? and as far as i can understand, 60hz interlaced means that only half the frame is updated at a time, meaning that only 30 frames are shown every second - meaning a game running in a 60hz screen can't be showing more than 30fps? in fact i just checked in my manual for mario kart wii and it says "60Hz produces close to 30 fps" (the reason it is explaining this is because in Europe our TVs use 50Hz at the PAL resolution, but modern ones typically support 60Hz and the lower NTSC resolution, but I think still use PAL colour, and a number of GameCube/Wii games support or even require use of 60Hz on a European/PAL TV)
Of course the wii also supports a progressive signal, on the European wii this is 480p (ie. NTSC resolution) but it doesn't specify the frame rate... so maybe the wii supports 60 fps via component cable only?
Nov 28th 2008 6:17AM errr.... i got loco roco 2 off hmv.com for £13.49... that's with a student discount, but what is the point of the PSN if it is going to charge that much extra?!
Oct 21st 2008 3:04PM oh dear looks like you have fallen for the trick of the UK newspapers' sensationalist headlines... the story you link to actually says "Everyone who buys a mobile telephone will be forced to register their identity on a national database under government plans...." ie. this is only at the planning stage, you do not actually have to show your passport when you buy a pre-paid phone in the UK now, the government is only considering doing it in future - it may not ever even happen.
