Windows 8 release preview imminent

Re: Live Mesh

According to Wikipedia, "Windows Live Mesh is set to be superseded by a new SkyDrive desktop application" which will mean PC-to-PC sync won't work any more, it'll have to go via SkyDrive. A shame.

Gamer claims complete console collection

Matthew Banwell

Complete?

He appears to be missing the Amiga CD32, Amstrad GX4000 and the Commodore 64 Games Systems for starters - but I don't want to be the one to tell him.

HTC Desire HD

re: HTC Sense Website

Great phone - I love it to bits - but the HTC Sense website is terribly unreliable. Sending text messages through it is a bizarre game of chance. Their support stay it's under maintenance but for something that has been so heavily marketed and really isn't that complex, this should have been fixed by now.

Defrauded punter says 'catflaps' to PayPal marketing stunt

Matthew Banwell
Joke

Good Customer Service!

If the seller doesn't use Recorded Delivery (and even if they have Proof of Postage), you can make a claim to PayPal that you never received the item and PayPal will take your money from the seller and credit it back to you. So, you get a refund *and* get to keep the item. What a deal - seems like good customer service to me...!

(Disclaimer - had this happen to me, though have never done it myself)

Spam filtering services throttle Gmail to fight spammers

Matthew Banwell

@ Hany Mustapha

Quote "Paris because... erm... he and she might appear to be well suited!"

They're not phishing spam emails in my Gmail. They're from Google. Therein lies the humour.

It's very simple. Just like Paris...

Gmail Spams Itself

Gmail not only sticks mail from Google itself into the Spam folder, but also marks these messages with the anti-phishing message, "Warning: This message may not be from whom it claims to be. Beware of following any links in it or of providing the sender with any personal information."

So, on one hand Google is sending me emails about update my Adwords billing info, yet on the other they're hiding them from my inbox, and telling me not to trust these emails. What to do?

Ringtone?

A tube in a pipeline? Will it make a sound like a swannee-whistle?

Virgin Media taps Microsoft in lengthy email outage

Unhappy

@David

Yes, our Virgin Media installation took two months - from them arriving to getting the internet, TV and phone to actually all work.

Two weeks?

Don't count on VM being that quick - our recent VM installation took nearly two months!

Dell XPS M1330 laptop

No XP

For a machine with "XP" in its name, it's a shame you can only get it with Vista.

Upgrade?

If you want a new computer that fits in an envelope, it's probably a better upgrade path to simply buy a bigger envelope.
