How do you know you havn't?
In France, all over, you see Gendarmerie, or Police Municiple (Muncipal Police for non French speakers) on their uniforms and vehicles , and it doesnt matter which department they are from.
No silly Whatevershire police badges/letterheads etc, the French know where they are, why do the Anglais need to be informed?
Why is it so difficult for the bbc to detect flash is not available, and serve html5,
obviously very difficult
re only things like video at the BBC
Quite and why havent they spent some of the license payers tv tax on converting to html5?
Please feel free to ask them why, but dont expect a quick reply.
And there lies the problem, multiple hardware platforms.
That is why most of the commercial systems, Apple and even DEC, due to the hardware and software coming from the same vendor, install with less hassle.
Which has the better overall security, Android or IPhone?
whats a bioloist?
And if you use TimeMachine as a backup to a NAS, who is at fault, Apple or the user?
really?, so who is to blame if Apples Time Machine faithfully backs up my Itunes library onto my nas/harddisk/icloud?
Really, my kindle croaked after 3 years, will do nothing, its dead (as in this parrot is dead),
my kobo is still going strong, and more pleasing to the eyes.
Microsoft rushes out latest Windows 10 build. 300 fixes?
Because elReg are biased against fruity products and like to windup people who buy these products.
You only have to read some of the so called journalism to see the trends.
Envy probably ( and as I will no doubt be terminated, well so much for free speech, but a hundred down votes would make a great epitath)
PS and they are very offensive towards the French, which is offensive to me.
And thats your defense for publishing it?
that OS X has its own pdf ready.
Just saying really, not trying to bait/windup DV
wow, downvotes for asking a question, the Phantom DV and his/her minions must be out again!!!
but my gf's old powerbook is sicky bad, and with all the problems she was having with the latest
software on the banks etc, she purchased an apple air.
After a bit of tuition from Aimee the wiz kid, she transitioned from osx tiger to yosemite, with few
problems, dumping her micro$oft office for apple mail and libre office.
A happy bunny so far , so a happy Aimee!!
bit curious, what extra bits due you need to connect to it via usb?
just to clarify, is it a Via model? which if it is like mine promised lifetime updates, as part of the purchase contract?
As for removing stuff, amazon did that on the Kindle, and they got bad press as they deleted some
guys college notes on his legit copy of a book.
Appalling Customer service
Pathetic OSX support
Shame as the gadget is not too bad,
PS is it me or has the Phantom Down Voter for no apparent reason reappered?
Not enough down votes, gimme more!!!!
I just had it,” adding that he tired of the balky computer’s “blue screen of death"
Should have bought Apple.
White House officials said that no classified networks had been compromised, and that the hackers had collected no classified information. Many senior officials have two computers in their offices, one operating on a highly secure classified network and another connected to the outside world for unclassified communications.
So why have you posted as an AC?
4) Watch your bill go up
Two questions you may wish to ponder over..
How do you think they identify the targets in the first place?
Who defines the bar?
how much heat is generated in the Palace of Westminister when our elected representatives and peers are actually there?
Could we not store and transform all that extra hot air?
My dad tried to get a pension assessment, tried three times, different browsers, errored each time
So he decided to call the 0345 number displayed with the error message, to be told by the recorded drone,
the number has changed to 0845.
Why the F**K they couldnt sort out the problem, more more damming, didnt bother to change the phone number on the web site.
If they cant achieve that simple task, why are they trying to develop anything more sophisticated,
it beggars belief.
why the mobile companies were not forced as part of their license agreement with the government to form a joint company to provide the masts and associated infrastructure.
This would surely have enabled the coverage to be optimum for all parties, make for easier planning consents, and be benificial to the customer?

thanks for the info
what is it?
Nothing. however most of the people who contact me (because someone told them I was in IT)
are really scared/awed by computers and os's.
Presumably buyers of computers have some basic enough skills that they can insert a disk/usb and click on 'Install'.
I have actually sat along side someone to hand hold him on installing Windows, and guess what, its all the questions that fazed him.
Better to have a system where it says, you opened the packet so you accept the license etc, (readable copy in box).
Plug in , one question, do you want to do this, did you read the license etc?
The yes, OK see you in n minutes (hours if its windows) I will beep to let you know when I am done
Then when done set user name, password , smile!!!
Need lots of DV's, its that time in the lunar cycle :(
Had me laughing all the way through it, how do you do the lip syncing?
You know in the article there are words in blue?
Well they are hyperlinks, click on them and you will be taken to information about the issue.
If you are a bit worried about links, for example you might go to a bad place, well
here is the link you need
the suits have though this through, except for people like me,
no land line, bugger all mobile signal (have to run up the lane get code
run back down again,enter code into computer before timeout)
1. where is your evidence?
2. have you checked wikipedia?
3. when you have done that do you believe that all the organisations she is associated haven't checked her credentials?
4 when you have checked out 1. update wikipedia as we all need to know the truth
Clue, DLL (thats a windows file)
If you don't want to be tracked, don't turn it on.
If you don't want to be tracked remove the battery
Yes, the exceptions are a few, for examples batteries (where its based on the amount of usage over two years) and disposable items. The latter is interesting as a well known manufacturer of chip machines seemed to think that a plastic and metal filter counted as a disposable item (like a vacuum cleaner filter)
However the plaintiff contacted the EU who ruled in this case said filter did not count as a disposable, so the manufacturer when presented with the ruling, caved in.
Also contacting the EU is easier than the new fangled way of contacting the Trading standards, i.e. via the CAB. Out sourcing gone mad.
Remember: you're not charged to receive magic number reminders.
My time is mine, it costs, so one you get for free, the rest there is a post processing cost of 1 GBP.
You are obviously not up to speed with the minimum requirements for EU members regarding consumer protection, let me direct you to the path of enlightenment...
Individual countries mat increase the time limit over 2 years.
Apple are being cautious ..
Apple has determined that, in RARE cases, the Apple 5W European USB power adapter may overheat and pose a safety risk. This adapter came with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S models shipped from October 2009 to September 2012 in the countries listed below. It was also sold as a standalone accessory.
Yes that do, but IMPO not in the way the reg did it.
The dangerous adapter came with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S models shipped between October 2009 to September 2012 in a number of countries including Blighty and various other European countries.
Where does it say that?, the list does not mention the UK.
Sensationalism again (and fruity envy no doubt)
its illegal to use a phone while reporting an ongoing criminal activity?
For for example if someone was kidnapped and used the brake light to send SOS, someone else followed them and reported it to police whilst giving out location details of the kidnapper.
