The Jimmy Savile witch-hunt sets us on a path to paranoia | Simon Jenkins | Comment is free | The Guardian

Jimmy Savile and the BBC the biggest story on Earth? Apparently so. Today the British media placed it above Romney versus Obama, above the implosion of Lebanon and above the birth of the world’s largest oil company. Savile was bigger than killer drones in Lincolnshire, bigger than Cameron’s prison policy, bigger than the sensational Birmingham […]

People do the silliest things…

Recently a lot of people have been talking about passwords and how they are too simple. What the researchers failed to mention is that it doesn’t matter how secure your password is it will not help. There was a bit of a buzz on Twitter yesterday about an application called Twifficiency. It allegedly calculates “your […]

It’s official the Arctic chill has arrived. I woke up in the middle of the night and it was chilly so chilly I had to take a grab of the weather temperature on the iPhone provided by yahoo. Now I know severe weather warnings have been issued as temperatures in the UK dipped as low […]

Apple pushes anti-virus for Macs

For the first time, Apple is recommending the use of anti-virus tools to protect Mac systems. I’m surprised it didn’t happen sooner in all honesty. Apple systems are becoming more and more popular and as such they will become a target for the virus makers. The BBC website and The Register site both have more […]

Robert Peston on why Vista is evil

Dear Bill Gates Give me back my weekend. I bought a new Windows Vista laptop – and that’s when the trouble began. My dislike of your new user interface you can put down to the conservatism that comes with advancing years. However having loyally stuck by the galumphing, unaesthetic functionality of your operating systems over […]

I’m sure this is some sort of attack to make automatic comment spam functionality block trusted sites in an attempt to make website publishers […]

big bang

Andy and I were awoken at around six this morning by what we thought was an earthquake. True to form I fell straight back asleep. It turns out though that it was an explosion north of Londona at Buncefield some 50 miles away. By now you have probably seen the news and know it’s a […]
