There seems to be a large flaw with the BBC iPlayer, their Parental Control feature is based on a cookie.
This makes it very easy for any computer whiz kid to allow themselves to watch programmes which are normally shown after the watershed whenever they like. And to top it off, the BBC explain how to delete the cookie in their help page.
Voyage of the Damned was on last night and in case you’ve forgotten to tape it / dvd-r it / store it on a hard drive / sky+ it or just want to see it again, then you can watch it right now online (only available to those in the UK) via the BBC iPlayer
It comes with changed title music, and right at the end 2008 teasers.
…according to the latest TV ads the new formats you should make sure that your Home Entertainment system supports are DVD-Monday and DVD-Now!
After the disaster which was the BBC iPlayer, the BBC have relaunched with a flash version instead. This runs on any computer (Windows, Mac, Linux) as long as you have Flash installed. A bit like YouTube.
It’s seems to be great, and no longer do I require that crap software on my computer.
The press seem to think that Nintendo Wii’s are going for over £1000 at the moment with the Christmas rush, yet a quick look at eBays recently sold items show that most Wii’s are going for less than £300. So where are the journlists going wrong? It’s the usuall eBay scam, the Nigerians. People are selling their consoles and not restricting sales abroad, and then amazingly a small bidding war ensures and the goods are won by a hijacked account and if the seller is rather greedy and unlucky the Wii will be shipped off without any payment. Just take a look at the feedback of the winners.
It’s the same for mobile phones, and I’m still not sure why eBay try to suggest that I would be better off allowing people abroad to buy my goods.
I’m still one of the undecideds. I really have no idea who I should vote for. But the question I’m asking myself is, should I bother to vote?
Last time around I voted for Ming, then when I went to conference I got evil stares from my Huhne friends and I have the feeling that whoever I vote for this time, the campaign team of the other will be making remarks about why we would have been better off with theirs and the stares will return.
But if I don’t vote neither side can blame me (unless it turns out to be a draw) and I keep all my mates happy.
