Aggression from video games 'linked to incompetence'
By Dave Lee

"Feelings of aggression after playing video games are more likely to be linked to gameplay mechanics rather than violent content, a study suggests."

(The need to master the game was far more significant than whether the game contained violent material.)

This is a Real security problem and, thanks to a company that jumped ahead of the gun with the news, it's effectively a zero-day vulnerability leaving everyone else scrambling to get the patches out.

I still prefer Gmail to Outlook/Hotmail or Yahoo for its intuitive functionality & I still prefer it to any non-web email provider because I don't want to leave my home pc on 24 hours a day & allow remote access from wherever I happen to be and whatever I happen to be using.

Seen the samples of Oculus VR storytelling news events? I put a couple of scenarios at the bottom of this blog post:

Tech journalist, photographer, Twitterholic
I started writing a weekly column for the Guardian in 1983, while editor of Reed Business Press's Practical Computing. I joined the staff in 1985 to launch the Computer Guardian section, and became one of the Guardian’s first bloggers in 2001. I also answered readers’ queries via the Ask Jack column, and continue to do this on the Ask Jack blog.
Before all that, I edited photography magazines such as Photo Technique, Film Making, ZOOM, and You and Your Camera, and an early microcomputer magazine, Practical Computing. I have also written regular columns for Practical Photography, Computer Weekly, Personal Computer World and many other publications.

I have been using electronic mail and online services since the early 1980s, with accounts on Prestel, BT Telecom Gold, The Source, CompuServe, AOL and Cix. The Cix account is still going, after more than 20 years. 

I have used, reviewed and frequently owned a wide range of microcomputers including the Apple IIe, Atari 800 and ST, Sinclair Spectrum, Commodore Amiga, Acorn Archimedes, Apple Macintosh, and an embarrassing number of DOS and Windows desktops and notebooks.

I have a BA in English Language and Literature from the University of Birmingham and an MA from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver. 

Bragging rights
I was an early Apple Macintosh user, having a machine at home before Christmas in 1983. It came with a T-shirt that said: "I've seen the future of computing but I'm not allowed to talk about it."
