The BBC is THE best broadcasting agency in the world. It has provided an outlet for so many different arts, science and cultural programs that would never have been made with out the public funding it receives and not tied to being a slave to advertising agencies and the wares they are trying to flog.
Because this way kids can get paid for apps with out having to steal their parents credit cards, they just make them pay indirectly through their power bills. Genius!.
An anonymous reader writes "Google on Thursday announced the beta release of its new Chrome Office Viewer extension, which lets you view Microsoft Office files directly in the browser on Windows and OS X.

I would blame that on shitty routing through your fibre provider, Nth Shore fibre, 183ms.
An antibiotic with a viral infection is not a terrible idea. A virual infection will reduce your immune system opening yourself up to all sorts of bacterial infections, With the added effect of placebo, the patient will be feeling fine in no time.
I have had numerous of these SPAM messages, being an IT technician for a lot of small businesses, who do, unfortunately still rely on their ISP email addresses. (I have tried and tried to get them off these). All the messages I have received so far have been redirecting to the following sequential domains: http://workathomefree1.com/ through to http://workathomefree19.com/ With the following whois information: (unsurprisingly based in India) Domain Name: WORKATHOMEFREE1.COM Registrar: TRUNKOZ TECHNOLOGIES PVT LTD. D/B/A OWNREGISTRAR.COM Referral URL: http://www.ownregistrar.com/ Name Server: NS1.FASTNSHERE.COM Name Server: NS2.FASTNSHERE.COM With the assumed false contact information Mahdi Aparicio Mahdi Aparicio (@workathomefree12.com) Rua Manuel Antunes 1149 Londrina PR,86057-120 BR Tel. +55.4348843928 I have emailed the registrar to shutdown the domains on Saturday 9.30am (NZ Time GMT +13) but not holding out much hope of them acting on it.
Tell me about it. I stop seeding as soon as I finish my torrents. Suck on my bandwidth caps Linux distro peers!
We could always build an army of protesting robots to do it for us. They would be able to chant and wave pickets for as long as their charge lasts, while we can still go to work and earn our 1%

It's called [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planned_obsolescence]Planned obsolescence[/url] [Wikipedia.org] in the industry. Kinda illegal in most places, but proving it is something else entirely.
Though probably not the oldest piece of equipment owned by a
/.'er, I have faithfully been using my logitech mx518 as my primary mouse (work and home) for the past 7 years, and it is still going strong.
I see no reason to 'upgrade' a component when it is still a comfortable and functioning device.
Or maybe it is just that I cannot afford new stuff?
I agree whole heartedly. In order for the 'masses' to truely benefit from a diverse yet quality experience, they do need to perform some sort of quality control. Think about your local book store, they pick and choose the material they stock to appeal to the widest audience, if that means not stocking (largely) freely available information, it is really just their business decision to make.
With no distortive effects it will look as big as the average Americans.
This seems to me that it is going to be another massively under-adopted operating system. You'd think they would have learned their lesson from Vista. Don't force unnecessary restrictions on usability.
