  • Opinion: More excuses for Microsoft's strange Xbox signal

    After 37 days, Microsoft has finally issued a statement in response to the strong radio apparently generated by its Xbox 360 game console that was noticed by Morrisville State College's IT group. The 43-word statement read: "Any number of scenarios could account for wireless LAN disruptions in a college dorm environment where several electronic devices operate in close proximity. Xbox 360 complies with all applicable FCC regulations and we have not received reports that would indicate such a problem." Here's our top 10 of other things Microsoft could say about the strange Xbox Wi-Fi signal.

    Top Gear presenter, mulleted braggart and professional ignorant Jeremy Clarkson recently told the world that the loss of CDs containing millions of people's personal data was a "storm in a teacup". Then he got ripped off for £500 in an internet scam. Priceless.

    January’s Consumer Electronics Show taunts us with gadgetry soon to come, but the new year tends towards the moribund in terms of brand-new products filling the shops.

    Bebo was today named as the best social-networking site, beating off rivals Facebook and MySpace.

  • Opinion: Goodbye Netscape. I'll miss you

  • Opinion: CES to host 2008's killer tech products

  • Opinion: My wish for Apple's micro laptop

    My editor pointed out that this issue has a forward/predicting theme and suggested I keep that in mind when figuring out what to write.

  • Opinion: 2007's wireless flops

    WiMax isn't dead, but the collapse of the world's highest profile WiMax partnership certainly didn't help its image in 2007. Sprint and Clearwire teamed up in July to cover the US with WiMax, and split up in November, leaving Sprint increasingly struggling to justify its commitment to WiMax.
