iPad 3 Confirmed To Have 2048x1536 Screen Resolution

Fishy Re:After the service I got on the ipad1 to ios5 (537 comments)

I really suggest you look around. Ios 5 on ipad 1 problems are happening across that board. Google ios 5 buggy to see the 10 s of thousands of comments on this.

A patch was due last nov, it was delayed to fix the problems with this release. I can see over 100 crashes submitted back to apple in the last 7 days, And that is just me, this is just two weeks after doing a full reset.

Murdoch's UK Paywall a Miserable Failure

Fishy Re:Duh... (428 comments)

"I think that they are one of the few companies that get it"

Hmmmmm. I had a trial subscription, £1 per month or something, until it stopped for no reason. Several weeks later they sent me a letter (even though they had my email) to tell me the bank DD didn't work, together with a seeming random bank error string that looked like a line from a core dump. I phoned them up, they didn't know how to fix it, and that was the end of that.

Blogger Humiliates Town Councillors Into Resigning

Fishy Re:Read the blog itself (227 comments)

The blogger's car was torched and his house vandalized.

Another good example of why the net should be as anonymous as possible

A car was torched on the same street != the blogger's car was torched

Another good example of why the net needs a fact checker!

Blogger Humiliates Town Councillors Into Resigning

Fishy Re:Revealed as feeble... (227 comments)

"(yes I know)"

If you know its bull, why are you quoting it?

(and yes the story says "town halls" when actually 99% of what its talking about is county/district councillors, so it doesn't apply at all to this story)

Blogger Humiliates Town Councillors Into Resigning

Fishy Re:Can we get rid of the US Congress so easily? (227 comments)

Let me give you a hint, the Daily Mail is more National Inquirer than the Washington Post. Tabloid stories are seldom actually true.

Out of your list a little more research would have shown that you are about 80% incorrect.

Proposal Suggests UK Students Study Wikipedia and Twitter

Fishy primary school! (252 comments)

Christ, this is little kids, they never did WW2 or the victorians anyway. Just like the comment on the story says, you draw pictures of vikings and romans at that age, you don't study the damm Potsdam Conference!

You teach WW2 at secondary, in a long segment, starting with WW1 to get everything in context. The same as we have been doing for years.

10,000 Cameras Ineffective At Deterring Crime

Fishy Your missing the point (414 comments)

The cameras can be very useful, eg The london murder squad has one of the highest clearup rates in the world, but thats only because time is taken to analyse carefully whats on the tapes.

Like many things they are a tool, analysis based on just the number of cameras cannot tell you anything.
