But these aren't isolated incidents are they. There was a similar story regarding a Japanese bog the other week. Then there was the baby monitor incident last year. The list just goes on and on. ...

You mean something like THIS? (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-28208905)

I think many manufacturers are trying to create a market and convince us their latest tech is something we can't live without - what tripe. Why do I need an app to control my heating and hot water? ...

+1 - it's just like the early YouTube downloads. Very noticeable on a large panel TV. BBC 4OD and even 5 have much better PQ. I don't really have problems with buffering though, not since I left...

And do you think AMD are squeaky clean in all their dealings. Any firm that is are likely no longer in business or have remained small if they are. It's a dog eat dog world out there.
