BBC iPlayer’s Downturn

by Martin on Feb.05, 2009, under Articles by Martin, Blog


What the hell’s going on with the formally-great iPlayer recently? I have recently been very dissapointed with the BBC’s output. It’s the only television I consume and I’m now confined to watching the occasional episode of BBC Click, for lack of any other quality programming from this institution in recent months…which we pay for!! Surely the BBC shouldn’t be effected by the credit crunch and resort to cheap programming.

All the Beeb’s best programmes have ceased — Top Gear, Mock the Week, Buzzocks, HIGNFY, Charlie Brooker and anything else of comedy or intellectual value (with the possible exception of QI). I can see that they are likely going to resume the former quality in the spring or summer, but why do they insist on having half a year of crappy programming?

Sort it out…I’m sure I’m not alone in my frustration.

Maybe I should get a TV in here.

It’s an ultra high res photo of Barack Obama’s inaugural speech – 59,783 X 24,658 pixels

Engadget managed to slashdot the server initially, but look how cool it is! You can spend ages just checking out the expressions!

Bush looks impressed…

Gran Turismo

by Martin on Jan.21, 2009, under Blog, Martin's Life Blog

s7300570After a recent session of procrastination I was on YouTube and was checking out some old school game intros and movie clips…which sparked my memory of the many fruitful hours spent playing Gran Turismo on the PS1.

I decided to buy the game again, so I checked out the second game too which came as a bunde from eBay.

It arrived today!

I very much look forward to  playing this game again, but I bet that it won’t be quite as fun as first time round. Some things should be left alone.
