Glad someone else remembered that. I thought I was going mad.

sebFlyte writes "CNET are at CES, and they've got an interesting look at Asimo up. It's an interview with one of the developers from Honda talking about not only the potential Asimo has, but also fundamental issues about the design: quite how human they want it to be, why it's child-sized, and why it talks the way it does. It's also cut with some video of Asimo in action... and I must say, it's not just the interviewer who's creeped out by the little chap."

sebFlyte writes "Europe and other PAL territories (that's Australasia, The Middle East, Russia and Africa) aren't going to get the PS3 until March 2007 at the earliest, according to a GameSpot UK report on a Sony Europe announcement. The problem lies in — you guessed it — the supply of blue laser diodes needed for the ill-fated Blu-Ray player. US and Japanese launches are still scheduled to go ahead for November 11 and 17 respectively, though."

Flaming, and foes

Well, thankyou 0racle. I have now made an enemy, but I'm not sure why.

I guess it's due to this submission, but i don't really know.

I did seem to draw a lot of flak for that, at least in part because the sentiment of the article was pro-MS, and i didn't bother to proof the post properly before sending it (damn you, editors, for not correcting my typos :P).

Anyway, I did have two posts up on the front page when that one went up (there was this one too), but the x64 windows story was the first that linked to my user page, and the only one that drew any flak, since the WikiNews story seemed to go down without any hassle.

I feel all special, so thank you.
