'Life on Mars' to be remade for Russian TV

4 November 2012 1:25 PM, PST

Life on Mars is to be remade for Russian TV. The BBC detective series - which saw detective Sam Tyler (John Simm) transported from 2006 to 1973 - will be renamed The Dark Side of the Moon and will be set in 1979. The remake will see a tough Moscow cop wake up with Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev in power, and government youth organisation Young Pioneers still active. Whereas the BBC series focused on the rough and ready police culture of the 1970s versus the more politically correct ways of modern Britain, the Russian producers admitted they had to reflect an entirely different atmosphere due to the influence of the Soviet regime. "In the British series, he goes from our time to that one and sees a harshness that does not work. He is a decent guy and opposes it," said producer Alexander Tsekalo. "In our story, it is all absolutely the other way round. »

Windows 8 review: A 21st century makeover

4 November 2012 9:40 AM, PST

Microsoft's Windows 8 has been kicking about in public beta form for some time now, so many PC users already know what to expect from the latest edition of the world-conquering operating system. It's being billed as the software's most radical overhaul since Windows 95, a risky path to tread in these times of heightened competition. Windows 8 is very much an attempt to bring the platform into the 21st century, offering a reworked interface designed to be touch-compatible, SkyDrive integration and a dedicated apps store. Using previous versions of the Os became second nature to virtually everyone a long time ago, so reinventing in this way is not without risk. Microsoft has lofty ambitious with Windows 8, targeting 400 million installs by the end of the year. It surpassed 1% of that figure within a few days, so it's already on the way, but is it worth shelling out for (more) »

The 46-year-old from Malmö, south Sweden had her fine reduced after initially being charged with causing bodily harm.
