    Irritating BBC Journo

    Rory Sodding Cellan-Jones knows nothing at all about technology.

    A typical hack - simply re-peddles the buzz words & hype from the manufacturers.

    BBC News - Ten years of changes in technology

    Discuss.

    They should pay some geek from the bowels of IT to talk tech - I'd rather like the 80k a year the Beeb pay this irritating twerp.

    Typical lightweight BBC

    No news (or substance) in that what so ever - I'm sure they make all these fillers for weeks before xmas so they can run on a skeleton staff until the new year.

    The BBC are getting worse than the Daily Mail.

    This article is a cracking example, and my nomination for the "No S*** Sherlock" award 2009.

    Maybe Rory has just realised technology has changed over the last 10 years, when in fact it's been evolving ever since technology was invented.

    It would of been a more interesting read/viewing if he went back 2 or possibly 3 decades. Mobile phones in the 80's were something special

    To add to the mix, I think iPlayer vs Youtube will be an interesting matchup in the next few years. Even an organisation like the BBC are a dot compared to Google. Youtube which is better than iPlayer (in my opinion) will no doubt start providing films, documentaries, you name it
