Oculus Rift release date, specs and features: Oculus Rift set to change the way we play, how we experience events and places

Can we dispense with the pretence that you and 'he' are not one and the same person? It might be less embarrassing for you. You created a new account. You used the same IP address. Go you.

I posted nothing 'nasty' on Twitter. I merely expressed my bemusement at how desperate you seemed to cause trouble. Nothing you have done subsequently changes that.

I have a BT Homehub 2 and a pass through TPlink extender, however they refuse to connect. Any ideas?


Acer Aspire Switch 11 review: Hybrid offers decent specs in a chunky design

3 comments, most recent: Cios said on : "

Well, they don't really have a good name when it comes to delivering quality in my book. I actually pulled the trigger on a Switch 11 recently and that name hasn't gotten any better (alas). The touch pad is visibly slanted, but worse is that the thing just stops working about once every two hours. Working on it and then just *poof*: black screen and having to turn it on again. It has also twice failed to turn on for a day and got really warm already. I will send it in to be replaced (as this is unacceptable), but it hasn't helped the way I view the quality of their products.


Why can't you give a Kindle book as a gift?

45 comments, most recent: Dave said on : "

Just hit this problem myself. Tried to buy Kindle book for my mum but it came to my account instead. Why does the website explicitly state you can buy books as gifts... then doesn't actually allow that option on checkout??!! I wouldn't have bought a Kindle had I known this problem... their website LIED!!!


Android or Windows Phone: What's best on a mobile phone?

98 comments, most recent: Alan said on : "

I used a Samsung Android mobile for a few years, I now have a Nokia Lumia 620, it's great and I won't be switching back. Yes, there aren't as many apps in the Windows store compared with Google's Play store, but I'm not concerned about that. The built-in Sat-Nav (Here Drive) on the 620 is brilliant and the over all ease of use (GUI) suits my needs. This is just my opinion after using both platforms.

Stag and Hen Company review

2 comments, most recent: FunkiBear said on 25 March 2011: "I think this site would be helpful to anyone planning a Hen or Stag Weekend. Lots of choice, professional and well established, easy to use and takes away the stress of organising it yourself."

Netgear N150 Wireless Modem Router DGN1000 review

3 comments, most recent: anothermouse said on 10 March 2011: "We installed 53 of these systems as a trial around the UK. Of these about 2-3 failed daily, rejecting connections from either via the WAN or LAN. Upgraded to latest version (0.35ww) does not resolve problem. Issue is reset by manually power cycling the router. Unsuitable for the high reliability that we require. Avoid!"

FreeNAS review

0 comments, most recent: WrkWatchr said on 12 February 2011: "Effective, efficient and very stable. Works great on every old system I tried it on. Excellent platform to use to stream video/media to all 10 other devices on my network with only a 1ghz MB and 1 MB memory. Only complaint is the software RAID instructions need work."

Virgin Media review

6 comments, most recent: Simon7063 said on 20 January 2011: "Originally on the Telewest 512Kbps package. I have had most of the BB packages up to current 50Mbps. Down time can be frustrating, but to be fair its very rare for the service to drop much under the advertised speed at each service point that I have had and only need an engineer out once in 9 years. In general very happy and no plans to change."
