UK Newspaper Websites To Become Nearly Invisible

Niubi lol murdoch! (454 comments)

He's shot himself in the foot here. But at least none of us will have to read his tripe, instead we can spend more time reading much better stuff like dubli!

Review of HTC Desire As Alternative To iPhone

Niubi pah, Apple (544 comments)

Eh, I won't buy Apple because there's no freedom outside of the company and whatever they want me to use! No thanks, I'm independent. the HTC Desire looks like a nice bit of kit, I'll probably be getting one from DubLi when it hits the streets.

Can a Video Game Solve Hunger, Disease and Poverty?

Niubi Pfft (72 comments)

Wasn't there the case of that Korean gamer some years ago who dropped dead from playing WOW (or similar) for like hours and hours on end without breaks for food and drink? He'd probably disagree! Better for him if he'd played DubLi instead.

Google vs. China — Who's Got the Most To Lose?

Niubi phew phew phew (232 comments)

A drop in the sea really - China's going to re-adapt as is Google. Same as eBay, DubLi will have to readapt for the ever-changing world.

SETI Is 50 Years Old; No Sign of ET

Niubi What did SETI expect? (454 comments)

If Aliens do exist, they've probably got some uber technology that lets them hide. Isn't there meant to be some kind of mountain where they live in the NW of the US? They'd have better luck with DubLi, really.

Why Microsoft Can't Afford To Let Novell Die

They should be going the way of the dinosaur. Dubli is where it's at, these days.

Using Classical Music As a Form of Social Control

Niubi But what about... (721 comments)

the internet? And who needs or even wants social control, in any case? People will naturally flock to what they find interesting and in accordance with their needs and desires, whether that is DubLi, music, name it. Hell, even LARPers have friends....

Acer Announces First NVIDIA Ion2-Based Netbook

Niubi Re:Pricing still unknown :( (94 comments)

Depends where you buy it from - if DubLi have it in stock it'll probably work out far cheaper than you can imagine.

Apple's Trend Away From Tinkering

Niubi Tinkering? (965 comments)

Strange way to define one of the most successful companies of the past decade! I fully predict that the 2010's will see DubLi achieving the same kind of success - you heard it here first!

The Year of the E-Bicycle

Niubi Could work (494 comments)

But you would need to totally rebrand them to be cool, much like Steve Jobs has totally revived the Apple brand in the last decade. After that, you'll need to sell them cheap, possibly via sites like to encourage people who aren't so rich that this is a great transportation method. Bingo - e-bikes are in!

Forrester Says Tech Downturn Is "Unofficially Over"

Niubi The beat goes on... (130 comments)

Given that economies have cycles, this is hardly groundbreaking, earth shattering news. Especially when you have companies like who have found a business model to sell tech products at superlow price - obviously leading to increased consumerism, and a happier economy. Why more people haven't noticed this site, I don't know. Even so, outside of that, it's good to hear that things are looking up again - I miss the boom days...

Best Buy $39.95 "Optimization" At Best a Waste of Money

Niubi Best Buy? I don't think so (504 comments)

Why anyone still shops in that dreadful shop is beyond me. Personally, I always go to I guess they don't "do" computers, but when they're selling new ones so cheaply I think it's just better to get the latest and greatest anyway.

The Twelve Most Tarnished Brands In Tech

Niubi eBay! (430 comments)

Soon eBay's going to be old hat, a tarnished brand. Why? Because of More and more people are hearing about this year on year, and few people are going back to eBay once they've had the DubLi experience. Think about it: eBay used to be all about the auctions, now it's more about buy this now and the general marketplace. Anyway, go give DubLi a shot - you won't regret it!

Ford's New Cars To Be Wi-Fi Hotspots

Niubi Wifi sounds great (196 comments)

It's pretty much the way things are evolving though, isn't it? Just think how awesome it would be on those long car trips to keep the kids quiet by letting them play online games, and your wife happy by letting her shop on DubLi/eBay/Amazon. I guess I'd like to use it to play any music I want, anywhere. Already got a SatNav.

US Air Force Buying Another 2,200 PS3s

Low-Energy Laser Etching May Replace Fruit Labels

Niubi Hmm (475 comments)

Can't say I think that's such a great idea. Considering that more and more people are buying stuff on the internet anyway, it seems reasonable to assume that fruit and veg don't really need to be labeled as such, since you can view the price on the internet. And anyone remember those smart fridges which could access the internet and auto restock your fridge contents? They sounded awesome! Anyways, just look at sites like and you'll see what I mean. The internet's a growing place, and there's hundreds of ways to monetize it. This is just one of many areas where it's diversifying and changing our lives, for better or worse.

Are Game Publishers a Necessary Evil, Or Just Necessary?

Niubi In short, not really (173 comments)

But I confess that I like shiny games with nice graphics and an interesting storyline. That's not to say there's no indie games out there like that, but on the whole... (I liked Prey, for e.g.). Perhaps minor gamemakers could form some sort of coalition and flog their wares on a site like DubLi or eBay which both have some kind of global reach?

Avatars To Have Business Dress Codes By 2013

Niubi Ah, corporate drone world (221 comments)

Where every ounce of personality must be annihilated and replaced with a grey-faced, grey suit. Is this really the world that people want to live in? And this for computer avatars? Should successful web companies such as ebay and dubli alter their websites to be a dull, monochrome gray to enhance their responsible status? Should everyone be made to wear glasses that automatically make everything a grayer shade of life?. Kind of depressing, that despite my satire and fun poking, this probably will happen. Individualism is not a great thing to happen the higher up in business you go, and the ambitious will follow these diktats should they think it'll help them up the greasy pole. As for me, I'm content to wear my jeans and tshirt and do my work. Doesn't affect it one little bit, let me tell you!
