Given that there is only 1 UK distributor, and that they charge an extortionate £7.99 delivery, reporting the price as £60 is a bit misleading.
It's actually £68.98, which is significantly closer to £70 than £60.
Not sure what all the Win 7 hype is about really. Been using it for a week or so and so far I have experienced little different from Vista SP2.
The differences are no more than a OS X upgrade which is...er £25.
Perhaps that's because they can only be as fast as the drives inside them?
It's a bit like complaining that your 2CV doesn't go any faster even after you've installed a top of the range gearbox.
Only care about TCO.
That's it. Can they get the same work done with less money?
Ah the special Sony exchange rate.
It seems that it European consumers are forever subsidising American ones when it comes to Sony products.
Selling stuff inside th EU is not 1.4x more expensive than selling it in the US.
Its not as slow...
today, but there's still nothing good on it.
At the end of the day, all the innovative developers are writing for iPhones. Nokia have missed the boat. Ovi is just a pile of crappy wallpapers and ringtones.
If they want it so much...
why don't they learn objective-C and do a 10.4 port themselves.
...or I could buy an DRM unencumbered (might as well be these days) DVD with a bunch of extras, not have to hope that my hard drive doesn't fail (or my phone get nicked) and have something tangible from Amazon for £5.98. Until rights owners realise that people will not pay more for less they are going to have trouble selling downloads - cf. music downloads which are generally cheaper than their CD equivalents.
This is completely different.
You fail to see that there is a basic difference between the two kinds of behaviour. In on case, you have a cable provider moderating html output (something the end user can do nothing about) and in the other, you have a piece of USER INSTALLED software altering html output. If you don't like Google Toolbar, uninstall it. You don't have the same luxury with your ISP.
Maybe it's the Brit in me, but didn't they think about politely asking him to leave first? Even bouncers ask you to leave nicely before they lay into you.
That the "officer" pulled a gun as a first response is, quite frankly, scary.
I was also under the impression that in order for a policeman to arrest you, he needed reasonable ground to do so. In this case someone taking to long asking stupid questions doesnt really seem like an arrestable offence.
