Orange and T-Mobile join hands with 3G coverage

Andy Scott
Thumb Up

At last

It's about time they did it, though I did think that might be happening soon as the data seemed to be switched off on the Orange mast in Paisley( the one covering the town centre) last week for a few hours. Now lets see how long it takes to roll out though.

Ten Essential... Symbian Apps

Andy Scott
FAIL

Ovi for Nokia

The main problem with the Ovi store is that it only allows Nokia phones to get stuff from it, rather than all Symbian phones, to me that's a fail as they're trying to compete with the Apple apps store and the Android marketplace

Thousands wrongly labelled by CRB checks

Andy Scott
Happy

the answer

What happens is when I CRB check is carried out, the company that carried it out gets the information and a copy of the check gets posted to you, as you own copy. I only know that as when I got my SIA badge I got a copy of my CRB check through the post.

Train rebrand costs us dear

Andy Scott
Megaphone

They Did

National Express did sue the 225's that GNER used as that's what runs to Scotland, however they never re-painted them. Instead just put stickers over the GNER saying National Express East Cost. One big thing I noticed they didn't do is use the electronic destination screens that are on the doors of the 225's instead its a bit of paper telling you the info. The governments East Coast company’s the same. what the point of the screens if they're not going to use them.

Except

That's all good and well, however when i'm checking i.d on one of the bars at work(i work in a concert venue), the bar manager has told us we only except a Driving Licence or a Passport as they Proof of Age card and especially the i.d cards are not worth the paper they're printed on. Hell just before christmas i had someone show me their rail card as i.d wtf.

Exactly how many colleges and universities give out email address and to how many students. I mean does someone doing nursing get one? It could end up as a good idea in theory, but in real life not so.

BT wins pricing control over faster broadband

Andy Scott
Stop

Not always the nearest exchange

i've got a friend who just got a broadband connection installed in Glasgow. her local exchange is a 5 min walk from her house but instead she's connected to the Barrhead exchange which is 3 1/2 miles away. why doesn't thew government take over BT Wholesale and lay the fibre network themselves and it would mean the network is nothing to do with BT

Scotland's porn laws: Can we talk about this like grown-ups?

Andy Scott

re AC Different countries

Scotland has always had its own law that is different from England. the best example of this is the sports ground act Scotland which makes it illegal to attempt to enter a football ground under the influence of alcohol, you don’t even need to try and enter the police can arrest you if the see you coming out the pub with your match ticket as you are going to the game.

Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot C902 cameraphone

Andy Scott
Alert

not great but good

it's seem a good mobile. I've had it for just over a week now. but I've got two problems with it since Monday it's been losing network signal on 3g and 2g. where as my old k550i has had no problems finding the network. as for the menu system being fast I don't think so it seems to freeze when your going thorough the menu (might be something to do with the orange world software). I don't know maybe it's just faulty phone I've got it don't know. other than that the phone's worked great the rotation of the screen is really handy for using the internet on.
