The Ministry of Defence has no defence when it loses 659 laptops

HELP!! Get writing it now. Write it on your roof in big chalk letters so when the rescue helicopters come to look for survivors, you may stand a chance of being spotted. You need to act now because you are not going to be protected by the Ministry of Defence. The ineptitude that emanates...

The BBC erases entire back catalogue of TV shows and Radio. Nice one.

If all the BBC’s programming over the years could be stored on celluloid, like in the old movies, and put end to end, like they say, then you could tie a pretty bow around Jupiter and still have enough film to make a roller-coaster back to earth. If all their radio broadcasts could be...

Obesity is “inevitable” according to diet experts. Get used to it. Be fat. Celebrate.

Obesity is officially no longer the individuals fault. The person eating all the food, doing no exercise, lazing in a rocking chair drinking Dr Pepper and guzzling down Doritos faster than an Olympic athlete injects nandroline is now no longer to blame. According to a “report” released into the wild today and compiled by...

Debit Card Clone Wars: Debit and bank cards cloned in online fraud explosion

All you wanted were some cigarettes. Not a big ask considering you had worked 67 hours the week before and the huge pile of cash that should be sitting in your bank account goes someway to masking the sheer hell of the weeks work; the 59 cups of coffee, 246 cigarettes; the hell the...
