Gordon Brown (don’t mention honours, I mentioned it once and I think I got away with it) wants more compulsion to make 16-18 year olds stay in school or train for work, fine. My oldest niece gets paid to pursue her A-levels, but when it comes to university you will enter a world of huge debt. Of course the people who made University so pricey got huge grants, could claim benefits and rent payments, they consequently left with little or no debt. So what they want is people trained enough to serve them, in shops, restaurants, garages but not educated enough to threaten their superior position. And this from a Labour govt. Pish.
Germany issues warrants for the arrest of CIA rendition spooks, you see Germany is trying to learn from its history my American chums.
BBC downloads good, crippling DRM restrictions not so good, they say if you don’t watch something you downloaded in 48 Hrs you won’t watch it period. This is not true, ( I watched a documentary at the weekend that I’d had for some months) why should the hard drive in my mac be treated differently to the hard drive in a set top recorder? Or even my VCR? UPDATE: From the comments –Also note that the proposed BBC iPlayer will be Windows only.
