@horness and other eejits.
You don't know the law properly.
YOU DO NOT NEED A LICENSE IF YOU DO NOT *WATCH* TELLY, BUT HAVE A PS3/XBOX/WHATEVER.
I'm not even going to apologise for the shouting above. Get a fecking clue people, read the fecking laws before you go off on one
I previously worked in a solicitors, and they had TVs everywhere, hooked up to DVD players. They didn't have any licenses in their branches, however, because they *didn't watch them for the broadcasts*, they watched them for training DVDs.
It's perfectly acceptable. You write to the licensing people and say "i have a telly. i don't have it hooked up to the arial and use it only for xbox/whatever. deal with it."
..I've done this. I don't watch telly so I wouldn't pay the license.....
....but I use the BBC News site, listen to Radio 2 and 4, etc. So I pay the license, because they're covered by it.
It's also worth pointing out that the license fee doesn't only go to the BBC. Yeah they get the majority, but they're not the only people in on it.
This will never take off if we don't get less utterly stupid transfer limits. Our home broadband is the craptastic side of 2mb but there's not a chance in hell we'll get mobile broadband and limit our bandwidth usage to under even 50Gb a month..................
Live Search on Facebook spreads to the UK
And it's now available in Britain.
Paris, because she can spread herself on me anytime.
You're a bloody idiot.
At least if you're going to try and smack down a reliable piece of hardware with a low TCO, you could try and spell it right.
Paris, because she probably can't spell anything right.
Well, if they're going to take Skype away form eBay, they better take PayPal too.
I wouldn't be able to stand Skype without the auto payments through PayPal. Brilliance. :)
Paris, because everyone's taken her.
"£939! Who are they trying to kid? There are far better spec'ed 12" laptops from big name companies for way less than that."
You do realise this is an ULTRAPORTABLE, like the MacBook Air... Not the same as any old crap from PC World.
And for an ULTRAPORTABLE, it's a fair price.
Running Vista on it, however, is a stretch.
Paris, because she can't run Vista either.
why in the nipples...
...does it undoubtedly require an accelerometer?
yeah, handy on the iPhone because it's the only way for it to tell which way it's pointing, but in this, like other slidey phones, it doesn't need one, just like in other, similar models.
too subtle? the screen flips when you slide it. duh.
paris, because i'd slide her.
why did nobody think of that before?
paris, because she's done it all.
i loved my windows mobile phone....
....but i gave in to temptation and bought an iPhone. it's far from perfect, but it's the best phone i've ever had, or used.
i won't ever be going back to a WM device.
i have reliable sauce.
it no happen.
'pricing space' is balls, they won't reduce a price pending a new product introduction. you arses.
"I have to say it is also just a tad more exciting to cross than the Forth Bridge, although the latter does score by having Edinburgh at one end."
However, the Forth Bridge then loses all said points for connecting us with "Inbred ned land". Also known as Fife.
