All those new '5G standards'? Here's the science they rely on

Dave Ross

So, 4G is barely available outside major UK cities (and pretty scarce inside some of them) and we are already talking about 5G. Well, good luck on the rollout of that given how well the 4G rollout is going so far.

Loads of mis-sold PPI, but WHO will claim? This man's paid to find out

Dave Ross

Interestingly, my bank contacted me and asked if I wanted to make a claim. Somewhat a rhetorical question if you ask me, so several weeks later I got a nice fat deposit in my bank account :)

Google proposes eye-tracking ad-tracking

Dave Ross

And there's the problem, we already have proof that "responsible government agency" is an oxymoron.

BOFH: Moon landings, Pong and the case of the smoking server

Didn't you know, conspiracy theorys are just a conspiracy theory!

The US government invented them purely to keep the nut jobs happy and to keep them from finding out that there really is nothing happening!

Half of UK road users support usage-based road charging

Dave Ross
Thumb Down

The problem..

is that the government would initially bring this in as a replacement for road tax (if we are lucky) but then a "reason" will be found to bring back road tax and at that point a lot of people will wish Guy Fawkes had succeeded...

I think I will be grabbing this as soon as a 3G version becomes available. Too often have I foloowed a tweeted link only to find that it is to something in flash and been unable to see what was interesting.

iPhone upgrades - a one-way control-freak street

Dave Ross
FAIL

I love how...

Apple's definition of "best user experience" seems to include crashes and rapid battery drain...

I skipped the upgrade from 3.0 to 3.1 entirely so that I could avoid this "best user experience" after hearing about the problems with 3.1.

Well...

I bought it at the weekend, and frankly it's been nothing but trouble.

Unexpected crashes (taking down the whole system!) and on monday evening it stopped working altogether.

Frankly, "must try harder"!

Europe plots black boxes for cars

Dave Ross
Unhappy

So..

"Similar boxes are used by managers of fleet vehicles and police forces, with dramatic improvements in accidents."

Actual reduction in the numbers of accidents or a decrease in the number of accidents the insurance companies have to pay out for?

Microsoft counters Windows 7 upgrade hack advice

Dave Ross
Alert

Why?

Why would anyone buy the upgrade version of Win7 when the full version costs £10 more in pretty much every high street store?

Surely no one in their right minds would want to do anything other than a clean install of an OS anyway!

Ok so

Now Mac users learn what Windows users have known for years, if you want to keep something, never leave in the Documents folder, put it on a separate HD and back it up if it's that important.

UK.gov won't drop 50p high speed broadband tax plans - yet

Dave Ross
FAIL

Tory promises...

"The Tories are widely expected to oppose the 50p broadband levy being contained in the finance bill. So should they be elected to government next year, the £6 a year tax on fixed phone lines could indeed be ditched."

That would require a political party to actually enact a manifesto promise that would loose them money, something pretty much unheard of in politics...

Just because..

iPhone v Pre - the celebrity smartphone deathmatch

Dave Ross
Thumb Down

iPhone KB?

The iPhone KB is still anything but perfect as far as rotating into landscape goes. It may rotate very nicely when it comes to most things but there are still the odd few (for instance, entering passwords) places where it doesn't. Why is this? I was praying for this with 3.0 and still not there.

In the end, the 3.0 update turned out to be a bit disapointing really.
