Just a brief note today - I had problems with the iPad's cellular data (3G) on o2. I couldn't find a way to set up an account to start a 3G service. But I found the solution and it was an easy one: plug your iPad into iTunes and update. I'd already plugged it in the first time I used it without any update so it may be new. You'll get an update to your cellular data settings which will give you the option of setting up an account.

Like many other users today and for the last couple of days in the US, I had a problem playing Bioshock (preloaded by Steam). I'd launch the .exe file to be faced with a black screen and then have to force close it. After ploughing through some internet sites, I found a solution that works for me.
If you're using Steam:
- Right click on Bioshock under the "My Games" tab.
- Select Properties.
- Under the General tab, select the "Set Launch Options..." button.
- Type -dx9 in the space available.
- Try launching Bioshock again.
There are quite a few potential explanations for the problem, mostly centring around sloppy coding when it came to Vista and handling the Visual C++ or Direct X 10 stuff. The solution above lets you use Direct X 9 and it seemed to work for me. I'm going to try reinstalling Direct X 10 a bit later on. Other users seem to have had some success on Vista with rightclicking on the bioshock shortcut file and running as an Administrator. It's also worth a try.
It's a great game once you can start playing it. Click on the picture above to enlarge the thumbnail.
