Microsoft Should Dump Middlemen, Build Own Phones
Nonsense. They're hardly going to build a manufacturing plant. They could (like Apple do) sub-contract to another manufacturer. But, in essence they've already done this with HTC making the bulk of Windows Mobile devices. I guess they could (like Google did) get HTC to build a Microsoft branded phone, but it wouldn't make a whole lot of difference as to what they have today.
Apple Launches New Magical Trackpad, 12 Core Macs
As others have noted here in the past, the number of processing cores do not a powerful computer make.
For sure; but this is aimed at people who are would be rendering video on their desktop or other CPU heavy creative tasks (e.g. Photoshop on massively high resolution images).
This isn't aimed at your average Mac user, or even your 'power-user' - it's aimed at people who need huge amounts of CPU every now and then.
"No Scan, No Fly" At Heathrow and Manchester
It's been a year since I last flew out of there so I dunno if the thermite-panted idiot has changed things much there, but City has always been a cut above hellpits like Heathrow.
No, it has gotten even better - not just comparatively. In the last year, they've upgraded and extended the departure lounge - it's more comfortable now and not at all squashed; capacity has increased at the scanner area too, so there's still never any queues. And there's also a nice new bar - so if you are early for your flight (I usually turn up 20 minutes before departure, so I don't frequent the bar) you can get a pint. They're a tad over a fiver for a pint, but hey - you're flying from LCY, you can afford it.
