  1. Emailed Parcelforce to try and get a delivery estimate, they say that for Game and Gamestation they hold on to the parcels til the official release date Oh well, roll on tomorrow!
  2. On Game's website it's showing as "Your order has been dispatched." and on Parcelforce's website it says it's an Express 24 service, which would suggest it'll be here tomorrow... We'll see...
  3. Just got this email from Game I wonder when it'll be delivered? I wonder if I could pick it up at the Parcelforce depot when it arrives there instead of waiting for the guy to deliver it.
  4. Internet not as fast as it should be

    I don't think you have to be with the Post Office for both broadband and home phone, you can go with just Post Office phone and use another company for broadband.
  5. They'll probably notify you because your modem will have to disconnect for a minute or two then reconnect to the ADSL2+ service.
  6. Typo? O2 owns Be. And yes, if it's the little white box then you should get a different router. I, along with quite a few other people, found that the O2 router would restart itself when watching anything on iPlayer about 1 minute into the program.
  7. Is it just me or do most LCD tvs...

    I've found most electronics stores have pretty dreadful TV setups. There was one in particular, either a Currys or Comet, which had all their TVs showing really fuzzy, snowy adverts for the TVs they sell. The only TVs on display which weren't getting a dreadful signal were the multi thousand pund Panasonics at the back which seemed to have their own little setup going on. The only place where I've been TV shopping and have been impressed is in Makro funnily enough. Every TV was connected by HDMI and was showing the Olympics on BBC HD and it really gave you a much better idea of what the TVs were capable of.
  8. WWDC 2009

    Here's my WWDC '09 predictions: iPhone 32GB Model Faster processor, more RAM, updated graphics chip 3.5G Speeds Magnetometer/Compass Matte casing 3.2MP Camera with autofocus Snow Leopard Mostly stuff of interest to developers Show off one or two features of interest to consumers Approximate release date will be announced Other I reckon the Macbooks and Macbook Pros will get a minor refresh. Perhaps up the base RAM to 4GB and replace the 9600M with a GT130 in the Pro. Can't wait, I love WWDC!!
  9. Other providers will be able to use BT Wholesale Broadband Connect (WBC) to provide the 20mbps service to customers in the WBC areas. I imagine it'll be a similar situation for customers of other providers, if your provider starts offering a 20mbps service through WBC you give them a ring and they'll upgrade you. Or you could have just gone over to O2/Be months ago like I did
  10. Anyone able to recommend a good keyboard?

    I had a look at the Saitek. I'm not sure about it, it looks pretty decent but the lack of USB ports on it is the deal breaker I'm afraid I've been thinkign about going for the G11. The G15 is a bit too much for me, and my local LAN gaming cafe has G11s on all their computers and they're pretty nice. I think next time I'm in there I'll bring my mouse along and see if it works on the keyboard's USB ports . I'm guessing maybe it doesn't like you Xbox controller because of the vibration, that probably requires a bit of energy, hopefully a wireless receiver will be require a low enough power to work.
  11. Hey people, I'm getting a Dell Studio XPS 1340 in about two weeks and I'm looking to set up a kick ass workstation type thing at my desk so I don't have to slouch over the LCD on the laptop. I'm gonna get a nice big monitor and mount it on the wall, I've already ordered a Logitech MX Revolution mouse and now I'm looking for a keyboard. The keyboard will mostly be used for web browsing tbh, although it'll probably see some FPS gaming and most likely some school work and some Visual Studio work. I'd really like a backlit keyboard. It's gotta be a USB keyboard and it should have at least one USB port on it so I can plug the mouse's wireless receiver into it since my new laptop hasn't got many USB ports built into it. Thanks
  12. O2 Internet slow at peak times?

    Here's a news story on it: http://www.samknows.com/broadband/news/be-and-o2-to-combat-congestion-hotspots-with-network-upgrade-489.html I've noticed that speed has dropped a little at peak times recently, but it's still significantly better than Orange was. Hopefully this will make an already great service even better
  13. Vista Thread

    Hey people, I was wondering if anyone here was a Mac user and switched to Vista? I'm considering making the move back to Windows after a few years of owning my Macbook, was just wondering if anyone here had done something similar and how they found it.
  14. Microsoft Silverlight

    I don't see what's wrong with Silverlight Surely a bit of competition in the video streaming market is a good thing, and it's not as if it's locking people into anything anymore than Flash is since it's available for Windows, OS X and Linux through Novell's partnership with Microsoft. I also don't see how Flash is rubbish for streaming content. Sure, Youtube has it's faults but iPlayer and Vimeo have always worked perfectly for me.
  15. You can get a Linux Live CD with a formatting and partitioning program called GParted on it here: http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php
