I think they need a bit of an incentive.
Maybe they'd make their systems a shitload more robust if they were faced with having to compensate every customer with, say, £10 each, per day/part day affected (with a day being defined as 00:00:00 to 23:59:59).
What part of "no mid contract price rises" do you NOT fucking understand?
Price rise = material change in contract terms = customer may cancel.
It's not difficult.
Instead of putting the onus onto us
Why don'y THEY do THEIR job and get this sorted out so that Amazon (and all the others) CAN'T avoid paying the tax they should be due.
Wouldn't it be poetic justice
If this were to turn out to be the phone that Nokia 'should' have made.
Wish them all the luck that they're going to need.
And yes, I AM an ex Nokia user, now gone to Android.
WindowsPhone can kiss my substantial, hairy arse.
Re: "scrolling and bouncing" is patentable?
... and is part of all that is wrong in the world of technology today.
Really, who gives a monkey's if the page you've scrolled 'bounces' when you reach its limit or not?
Apple, Samsung, (and all the rest of you out there patenting shite, yes, you know who you are) please get the fuck over yourselves.
But does that mean...
we'll still be able to call, say, David Cameron, a "complete and utter cuntbucket" for example?
Or will he now be able to spit out his dummy, metaphorically speaking, and have the comment taken down?
Re: I'm not having any issues
Ah yes, Kies.
Seems like every time (which isn't that often) I find myself trying to use that it's got another bloody update waiting to install.
And when I say use...
Functionality. Virtually non-existent.
But yes, they do make good TVs (hardware-wise anyway), but their 'Smart' interface is decidedly slow.
Really s l o w.
Dear Met Office
Just a polite reminder that as taxpayers, YOU work for US.
NOT the other way round.
Now, if you want to retain/regain a shred of credibility, stop being a shower of utter dicks and cough up the documents.
Don't use IE, except at work.
Re: On Digital
I remember getting a nice letter from ITV Digital's Liquidator, 'inviting' me to purchase their receiver.
Sent them a nice letter back politely declining and inviting them to collect their receiver from our house.
They never replied. Nor did they ever collect it.
I can only imagine it's now rotting in landfill, along with many, many of its brethren.
Will BT Sport/vision go the same way, Who knows. But I'll bet old Rupert will just bide his time...
Re: I am delighted.
i'd rather have a Nuclear Power Station on my doorstep than the equivalent output capacity in windmills.
And by "capacity" I mean actual rather than hypothetical output capacity.
The penny drops
Stop hugging those trees and embrace the atom.
Of course , there's still billions to be made peddling renewables as 'The Answer'. They're not.
They're only a part of it, and not a majority part.
"An obvious first move...
...would be to make sure you know which individuals you hold information about and where it is kept. Then at least if something does go wrong you will know who is affected and who you may need to contact."
If they've not already got that covered, which they should have under the current DPA, then they should have their arses well and truly reamed out.
And by 'they' I mean anyone who keeps data covered by the DPA.
Personally, I'd rather see the on-selling of any 'personal data' outlawed.
Nothing to see here...

It says EE on my phone
although the bills still say Orange.
can't say I'm surprised they're suffering (he he he) but if their 3G/GSM signal is as woeful there as it is in my area...
Not to mention their crappy customer service.
...bye-eee, Good bye-eee,
Stick your site, from whence you shite, how the fuck do you sleep at night.
We need a ' get it up ye' icon.
Just goes to show that the ICO has fewer teeth than Mr Herbert.
Re: the world economy
you missed out a few words between "of" and "idiots"
"complete", "total", "and", "utter" & "f***ing"
But less use in the 'average' household, I suspect, than a chocolate teapot. At least you could eat the teapot, presuming you're not allergic to any of the ingredients.
Sometimes the question "why?" should indeed be the first one to be asked.
So VF were no better than EE
on 3G, by the sound of things.
Too busy spending dosh on / promoting 4G perhaps?
4G? We dont need no steenkeeng 4G!
Just a decent, strong, reliable 3G signal out of EE would be an improvement.
You know whst they say about Pooh-pooh...

What I'd like
is that when I select "most recent" as the ordering, that it STAYED THAT WAY. Is thet TOO much to ask?
none of the mistakes

Cos that's what they'll be. D'you *really* think it'd only be your password on there?
If I recall correctly, there was a 20th century attempt at that sort of thing.
Do you want your shiny new console to be a success? Yes?
Then you need to quash this rumour flat. Because if this is true, then your new console is pretty much dead in the water.
Oh, and please don't counter it with the threat of "Well, we'll just kill of the '360 and force you to buy the One", because I suspect that 99.999% of gamers will retort to that with a resounding "Fuck You"
make your mind up, Sky...

Now, I don't WANT this POS on my machines, and have an 'understanding' of what's acceptable for my 15yo to access and the consequences of going 'outside the fence'.
I DO NOT need my ISP dictating to me what I cannot access. If you want to initiate this, Sky, then you need to make it OPT-IN.
the general consensus;
"Fuck you USA"
The US scumvernment needs to realise that it is NOT in charge globally.
Can't be long now
Until Nokia finally die. Thanks Microsoft. Thanks for nothing...
If it's the 'merchants' that are more at risk from this one than the consumers, then maybe there'll be more pressure to sort all this shitfest out.
No "Class Action" against Microstuffed?
Suerly that sort of clause would fall under the category of unfair terrms and conditions in this country.
Smells more of fear than confidence in your product to me.
Shower of cnuts.
WinPhone on Nokia - No Thanks
As a former WinPhone user (admittedly an Orange SPV C600), I found that widows mobile sucked like a Dyson.
Maybe it's Just me , but having had Nokias for a while now, I find Symbian Belle on the N8 a fairly easy and intutive to use. It does pretty much everything I want from a smartphone, although some 3rd part app support is drying up (gmail etc).
The one thing that Nokia suck at is music (I've not seen any comments on this aspect of smartphones here.) Nokia Music has one of the WORST UI's ever. Nokia Suite's handling of music isn't ant better. NM doesn't allow you to specify which memory you want to use on the N8, and the player on the phone is seriously basic.
I hoe Nokia dump WinPhone like the turd it appears to be
I can only imagine
that this MUST have been formulated by the (surely by now) failing Jazz-Mag industry as a last attempt to prop up their now outdated business model. Let's face it, when was the last time there was a major sighting of the now fabled 'Pornographicus Hedgii'
A bit like the thrashings of the music industry after their failure to see the potential from downloadable music.
And before anyone jumps in with "no music upset little kiddies", I would suggest that you need to broaden your musical horizons.
YOUR internet connection - Your responsibility, not your ISP's, Not the scumvernment, or some faceless censor.
That's a turn up for the 'book' then...
Who'd have thought that vested interests might have got it wrong...
To repeat from my norms;
"planet warms up,
planet cools down,
planet warms up,

Fucking deal with it!
Sea level will rise...
And in other news, the sky is blue, water is wet, and bears shit in the woods. Sea levels have historically been higher than they currently are, and no doubt will be again.
Re: sparky input
Yup, and it needs to be connected to an earth to have any effect...
What the fuck is
an "Inverse femtobarn". Or more precicely, how much?
Why the fuck...
should microstuffed, or anyone else for that matter, be allowed to dictate to me what I can, or can't do to MY hardware?
Yes, I KNOW there's a 'workaround', but if the swiss cheese that is a windows OS was actually secure in it's own right...
"Symbian still doesn't have a Kindle app. And neither does Meego"
There's lots of other 'apps' that haven't surfaced on symbian, not even on 'anna'
it's a bit of a pain in the arse, cos otherwise I'm more than happy with my N8 (free satnav, which actually works!)
