Re: Non IT points here

You should stick to reading the Daily Mail - they are more amenable to your bash the poor rhetoric. There is nothing in this article that says she can't look after her children, and I wasn't aware of any laws that restrict the size of a family on the statute books.

33%

33% downloads over the weekend doesn't sound that significant when you consider that the weekend is more or less a third of the week. Alright ~ 29%, but still near enough.

Wrong Target

Isn't more money lost to human and system error on the part of the DWP? Where's the reporting of that? It probably does get reported but it doesn't suit the agenda of the right wing tabloid press as much to get highlighted as much.

Microsoft markets 'collection' of PCs to consider

Jonathan Walsh
Thumb Down

pricing

Pricing is a bit dubious - they seem to quoting the tech specs of the highest specced machine but then quoting the RRP of the lowest specced. Check out the Acer Ethos in the entertainment section for example.

Ignorance is bliss or not

So ignorance of a law is no defence, but a general misunderstanding (which seems pretty much the same thing) of the law is.

I stand corrected

The pricing I found was for the no wifi version - although a £100 premium just for wireless still seems a bit steep.

Too pricey?

Not really a good deal - you can get one from play.com for £150, and on there they reckon the RRP is only £200
