Have a BB for work
Hate it with a passion. Cannot understand why people use these things at all
Yes you can
All you need is a ticket to Lille and you do not go through British immigration at Brussels.
The issue has been that people have then not been getting off at Lille but continuing to London.
British Immigration tried to check all and deny boarding to those they suspected would not get off but were threatened with arrest by Belgium police - so checks at both ends
Deported to the US?
I would have thought you can only deported to your point of origin on this trip or your own country
Re: Dials of WTF handsets
It was to avoid BT's patent or so I am lead to believe
wouldn't work on mine
But NFCTagInfo has no problem. Reads other countries also.
A pen anyone
Just write the location down on your entry ticket
Perhaps its just an excuse
for not upgrading all their terminals - they need to save some dosh
And one day they will support he Nexus 7
I am never going to buy a Kindle so give me support
Re: It's about choice
Worse. BBC pays Sky to carry it
thanks to Maggie

Anyone know who the band was?
No, not the 2001 theme, the bit first
quite interesting numbers in that report
It is interesting that before the 2.5% of watching films by p2p, there is 26% from dvds.
That legal download is but 1% (no mention of margin of error) and online streaming only 1.9% suggests that people use p2p because online viewing is just not available (or looking at lovefilm and netflix - there is nothing you want to watch).
Another piece of data is found interesting is the source of funding for British films. The first point is that its the only table in which the figure are not sorted. Is it perhaps to hide the point that the second largest source of funding is the UKFC lottery (at 18%). That is the national lottery. Its only behind distributors at 20%.
Me think they protest too much
I do not understand how R Pi will save the world
Raspberry Pi is just some hardware abet cheap.
To teach kids to program they need:
an environment that supports development
teachers with the knowledge and skill to guide the pupils
a language that will in the first instance allow quick development - with GUI
a language that can then be expanded to allow more control - i.e. lower level.
As far as I am aware R Pi is not going to supply all of that.
In teaching programing, the hardware is not important. What is important is the environment, the tools, and the teacher
not quite good enough
Still shows the old shit programmes
they don't have to put up with all that Christmas crap
Easy way to even it out
just add VAT to books.
No more arguments
Deutsche Telekom hadn't been given a full picture of the regulatory risks
Bollocks - the breakup fee would not have been so large had they been sure that it would have been successful
In need something like that but ....
I was thinking about a plate stand
Thank you for OS-X
And Android, et al
The real problem
is that PCI is overly onerous and yes still allows such bullshit as Verified by Visa to exist
Let's face up to the real reason Apple wants control
Because they want it BACK.
They had it with the ipod. Android mean you don't use your ipod (well I don't) and I don't use itunes anymore.
Apple gets no more money from me and since I got an Android phone I use no apple products.
They just want my money and control of me again.
The problem with the pogoplug solutions ....
Is that you must access your pogo via their website.
Why is this necessary
Used it to enter NZ last Nov
Skipped all the queues.
Came back and did the retina scan here - skipped those queues also.
The main issue is the mixing of domestic and 'foreign' travelers. It hasn't worked in the US ever - so why introduce it here. Oh that's right its about the airlines - not security.
Let's not forget publisher's shitty practices
When a lecturer at my university had a book published everything as delivered as both text and photo ready content.
So the publisher had someone type in every single thing again along the way inserting errors into every example and every formula
What sort of power level would you get if you
hung it/them out on the washing line?
You want to know the first thing I do when seeing these reviews?
I go to the last page and check the price.
No I am not even going to read the review
I love this app, except
That like all speech enabled apps the size is huge. Running in at 10Mb + and no App2SD its just too big.
So like flash 10.1 (version indicative of the space required) its uninstalled despite being a great app.
You opposition finishes their article with a throwaway sentence of
'For anyone who joins its Appstore Developer Portal now, Amazon will waive the first year's $99 membership fee'.
Why the fee. It rather suggests a new Itunes with lockout to other stores
So that's a photo of every punter - just in case
And we know how careful the govt is with data.
How much of this is just stolen credit cards
reworded into 'fraud to get a line of credit' rather than actual ID theft.
maybe apple was right ...
And Objective-C was a route to go down.
Oracle can only loose from this - they can never win.
it seems that everyone has missed the point
The data is based on insurance claims. If texting is illegal then you will not be writing on your insurance claim that you were texting at the time of the accident - instant decline of claim.
The report makes inferences that are just plain bollocks.
Another case of saying it will make it so
Or so they hope
Don't for get MOTSUX
Surrendered after just 2 weeks on the road - cannot imagine why :-)
Careful where you go here ...
5 year passports get expensive and annoying - and are also the solution to this issue.
If an aluminium can takes less energy to make than a glass one ...
Why are all the smelters parked next to power generation stations but glass foundrys are not?
I am genuinely interested!
Tried the android version of the job centre app ....
It sucked - should not have been surprised.
I would suggest that more reliable testing results ...
could be generated by using the management of the taser company itself
Do you thinks its cause we want the money back???
Nothing here - move along.
Wait for it ....
As soon as people see how ugly fibre is on power lines the bitching will begin
Real cause of waste?
Just how much of the wastage is caused by the supermarkets rejecting the produce because of its shape or colour rather than the lack of pickers?
Imagine the benefit if they had hired 10+ teachers for a bit of one-on-one tuition instead.
Will the laptops last longer than the Xmas toys?
wot a todger
I have BT at "7'MB" though iPlayer in the evening is like a politician justifying his girlfriend's maid's visa renewal. Lots of stutter but no action. Rubbish that statement. BT sucks. Live? Next week maybe.
Remember the shareholders^h^h^^h^h^h....what ever

What is never mentioned in that Symbian is a pig to program

The kid is 7
By law he s too young to give consent!
One must be 16 to give consent to anything
this is bollocks
Number portability is marketing ploy nothing else - who really wants it.
The cost of termination is rubbish also. All the mobile companies except for 3 have sufficient customers calling the other networks that at settlement time the cost to the initiating carrier is nil. Only 3 has to pay as they have so few customers. They could remove the termination charge completely and it would not affect the carriers at all.
This is just ofcom being blow hards - again. Who is actually behind it? Ofcom have never done anything on their own - they are just not bright enough
A leading chain of stores is currently advertising for a supervisor at 7.50/hr (in London).
£10/hr must a highly paid job
HD can still kill Blu-Ray
Since all the investment in HD is lost Toshiba should open source all the technology of HD. With no IP to pay for hardware costs would be next to nothing - it would stop Blu-Ray in its tracks
You've got it all wrong
Its all about money - pouring money not yet paid in taxes into the coffers of the mates of whoever is in power.
Hopeless Security will continue to create these bullshit rules to justify their cost. They have not hope of catching anyone/anything. They have to justify their excessive budget somehow.
