So if you leave Apple you're not allowed to work for another IT company then, or am I missing something.
off topic but does Judge Lucy Koh deal with anything other than cases involving Apple or is she Apple’s favourite judge
Microsoft Bob! Now that's cruel
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.
nice to know
Its nice to know it's not just me. I thought they'd cut me off again by mistake. I never bothered giving them a call as the last time I did I was called a liar by one of their call centre monkeys.
Site doesn't work
Can anyone get the police crime map site to work for anywhere in Scotland? All I get is a message saying "Sorry, we couldn't find a policing area that matched your search."
I've got a big problem with that as it means it would cost me even more money to work. As my company uses text messaging to man up shifts.
Re: That's why I don't go to the cinema any more
I know in Cineworld in Glasgow's Renfrew Street the staff come in a few times during the film with night vision goggles to see if anyone is filming or using a mobile phone/laptop etc
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
re Language bias
According to Google translate the french part says
The team regrets that France.fr enable you to find the gate of France. We are now facing a problem of configuration of our servers. We have undertaken an audit of all systems to allow us to reopen as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience and see you soon!
Jules Rimet Trophy
Eh they've not played for the Jules Rimet Trophy since 1970 when Brazil won it and got to keep it as the first country to win the it 3 times.
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.
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.
I dont take them
I work on a bar in a concert venue and we've been told by the bar management only to take a valid passport or driving licences, but not id cards as they’re to east to forge.
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.
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
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.
it looks staged
it looks like it was staged as if you look you'll see that the guy came from backstge and i know from working backstage at gigs (inluding oasis) there's always security backstage left and right areas to stop anyone getting on stage that shouldn't be on stage getting on
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.
