I'm leaving too, although not explicitly because of Murdoch.
I'm a Sky TV customer at present, and because I was on Be I also have a BT line. BT have offered me a really good deal to switch to Infinity (FTTC, 40mbps download estimated) which also gives me a free YouView box and access to the new BT Sport channels when they come on-stream.
I was really happy with Be for years (Been with them since 2006, even before the O2 buyout) but I had a 2 week long outage this year and the service and after-incident care was awful. As an ADSL customer, never tell your ISP what you think is wrong (even if you are right) as they will assume you are incorrect.
Equallogic kit is (or was) pretty good. Till Dell got their hands on it. It's improving slowly, but the support and the firmware for the first year or so after the acquisition was unbelievably bad.
Wow, the CEO of a cloud computing company thinks his product is right and everyone else's is wrong. Shocker.
My company is a Watchguard partner and their website is fecking useless since Salesforce took it over!
Re: Still more Microsoft marketing propaganda...
Almost all of our customers have "pool" laptops, for desktop users to take out for doing presentations or when they are on trips. Pool iPads are starting to appear in their place as a lighter option.
MetroUI cannot be called a failure. Most impartial (or should that be iMpartial :-) ) tech websites agree that Metro on Windows Phone gives a great experience, but the brand awareness isn't there and neither is the app ecosystem that iOS and Android have, hence the slower uptake.
Re: No Windows Media Player on RT?
What I don't understand is the lack of Pro features in RT. Microsoft dominates in the Enterprise market, and no IT manager is going to buy tablets with an OS that can't join the corporate domain and be centrally managed.
Looks like a clear speration of consumer and business tablets to me.
Not on Latitudes
Just to point out, the E Latitudes are replacing the D series and are not related to the Inspiron E. The 12.1" E series Latitude is a replacement for the Latitude D420 and 430, the former of which I am typing on right now.
True, as far as it goes...
I finished a contract about a month ago and here in Scotland the vast majority of jobs are permanent rather than contract.
It's been going on for ages though, particularly the qualifications part. I was hired by a company because I have an MCP. At no point, for a desktop support role, did they ask me what my MCP was in. ITIL seems to be the buzzword of the week in recruitment agencies.
Two words - docking station
If Apple aren't going to provide a few more ports such as ethernet or firewire why not provide the option of a docking station or media slice for the Air as Dell do with the D420/430? Then you've got the ports and optical drive when needed and the weight is unaffected for travelling.
I hate to imagine how much Apple might charge for an Air docking station though.....
