I had to stop this trailer after 10 seconds as it was telling me the entire plot of film.
Is there such a thing as a spoiler with Hollywood stuff?
Spoiler alert – the good guys win.

Hollywood is largely a lost cause for me at this point. The so called ‘event movies’, are total non-events for me. I haven’t been interested in super heroes since I was 8 years old.
I find myself spending my time in front of the TV watching high-end TV shows, such as House of Cards and Mad Men, and when it comes to film, I watch indies and non-English language stuff. French cinema is consistently excellent, as is Korean and Spanish cinema.
I was hoping there would be a SKU of the X1 without kinect. Motion control doesn’t work in gaming, and even if it did, I have zero interest in it. Therefore, why should I pay for a big lump of plastic which I will never use?
Visually it’s street ahead of the old iOS, but other than a new look, it looks basically unchanged.
Why is the springboard still just a big pile of lifeless icons?
All this talk about updates to Metro. I installed a boot to desktop and start menu replacement called Pokki when I got Win 8, so never, ever see Metro.
I unfortunately still see the retarded charms bar though, which I keep triggering by accident on my Wacom tablet

Roku launched in the UK about a year and half ago. Since then they’ve barely touched the platform and have very few UK specific streaming services, crucially missing Amazon’s LoveFilm, amongst many others, despite promises from Roku UK to the contrary.
The platform is now dead here, and the blame for that lies entirely at Roku’s feet.
Fishing bombs are massively destructive to the sea floor, which is why most countries have banned them. If this idiot had fished in a sustainable, intelligent, and logical way, he would still have his hands.
Good news, and news which means I’ll be able to keep using Waze, as opposed to boycotting it as I do all things Facebook touches.
ATV could be so much more than it currently is, simply by giving it an app store and publishing an SDK. Then it would go from a tiny number of US only apps, to hundreds of thousands available to the whole world.

Trailers are obnoxious in the extreme, and they’re getting worse. They’re designed to mis-sell, spoil plotlines, and basically dumb everything down to it’s lowest possible level.
Ads in cinemas are the final nail in the coffin, and why I very, very rarely go there.
All I need to gauge if I’m interested in a film is to know who’s directing it, and a very, very brief plot outline. (by brief, I mean something along the lines of ’ this film is a family drama’).
Who actually still teaches kids imperial measurements? The USA and…. anyone else?
We all moved on decades ago Vergers, time to go metric with the rest of us.

The hardware isn’t quite as similar as it may first appear. The PS4 has a much quicker GPU, and vastly quicker RAM. It’s a significantly more powerful machine.

They showed the console, they showed a LOT of TV stuff, and a lot of sports stuff, and some kinect.
What they didn’t show much of, were GAMES.
Unless E3 radically changes things, Sony will be the place to go for gamers.
