This is what I mean about wondering whether it was intentional in order to generate publicity through tweets, posts to other forums and maybe even a few specialist news sites. It was amazingly...

The bottom line is, Digital Spy is an advertising platform for its parent group. So long as its revenues are healthy, they'll consider its current state to be satisfactory.

There's no such thing. Anyone who reads an AV magazine is a nerd ;-)

No because only the boffins who program TVs and PVRs care about zeroes and ones.

There's no such thing as a digital cable. By definition, all cables are electrically analogue.

Cables don't convey zeroes and ones. Currents/voltages are applied or not, and that's purely in the...

I tried their jar of madras sauce - the one with the plastic bot of dry spices at the top for 1.29.
