The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim may have won game of the year awards left, right and centre, but that didn't bring much joy to PS3 owners of the massive RPG. A game-breaking bug on the version for Sony's console…
Poor Seagate. Late last week, the news broke that their Barracuda 7200.11 1TB drives were failing en masse. Admirably, the company’s already published a firmware fix, but maybe they pushed it out a little too fast because it’s causing 500GB drive owners’ discs to fail en masse.
The update has been taken offline for the moment, and users of 1TB and 750GB drives are reporting successful updates, but if you’re on a 500GB drive and you’ve downloaded but not installed the update, then I certainly don’t recommend doing so just yet.
This morning, I woke up and turned on my beloved Zune MP3 player. It got to the end of the loading bar, then just stopped. After the regular “hold back and up to reset” trick didn’t work, I did what any self-respecting citizen of the modern age would do, and turned to Google. Turns out there’s a lot of people with the same problem.
Across the internet, there’s a variety of threads on forums complaining that Zunes have frozen in exactly the same place, at exactly midnight PST. Given that we’re so close to the New Year, it’s likely to be a bug in the code, but I’m sure it won’t stop thousands of Mac fanboys across the land cooking up conspiracy theories along the lines of “Microsoft never expected to last this long in the market”.
More info, and a fix, as we get it.
As you probably gathered via the header, the iPhone has crashed! The iPhone has crashed! My, it’s a good day for Microsoft fans (admittedly there’s only two of us on this site, the rest worship at the temple of Jobs, but we’ll brainwash ‘em one day soon, promise).
Well, maybe. The site which first published the photo of the burnt-out iPhone claims it was on display in an Apple store…
