@pPPPP If you want us to behave their way in their country, then make them behave the way we do in our country.
Re: "Study shows soap operas trigger aggression in women"
Personally, I've always believed that the goverment is slipping subliminal messages in these programs to keep the brain-dead masses suppressed and depressed so as to be so complacent for their manipulation.
No they didnt
Virgin NEVER informed the NTL customers (at least) of their transfer to Google mail. I only discovered this after the Spam influx mulitplied from 1 a month pre transfer to 30 a day post transfer.
I HATE Google mail - stuck with it at work too!
Try getting them to ship 2 dvds in one parcel. Not if it comes from Jersey!
Yes I know it's the way they avoid VAT but it's a real pain balancing your credit card statement with multiple entries for one order price
Two stupid questions
Who/what defines low quality sites?
What happens if you block Google itself?
In schools, we have site filtration and one idiot entered *.* in the filter list - that was fun!!!
"Ten years of Windows XP means that the whole world knows how to use it, from administrators to users."
Like ot know which world your users come from - I support three schools and 90% of the staff have trouble with email and word documents without going into "How to save a file to a different folder other than 'My Documents'.
They did it once
Google seemed to have an innovative idea with their email - and f**ked it up big time
Anything is better the Google Mail - stuck with that rubbish (epithets removed) in this school for 4 years - even Lotus Notes that the admin staf use is better, and I never thought I would state that!!!
If you only knew...
As far as schools are concerned, yes, they do do their own purchasing. BUT you don't realise that they can only buy from suppliers who will let them pay via invoice, the schools are not permitted to use credit cards to buy direct from cheaper sources.
Then there is the extra charge (last I heard £1.50 per) imposed on the school for each invoice submitted to the local government for the budget paper trail.
As an public sector employee, I know these statistics are WRONG.
Too many computer morons
The remark posted by Anonymous Coward ... "and the average user is too fucking clueless to know there are alternatives" ... I will be brave enough to reiterate this statement. They ARE fucking morons.
I support 3 schools and a lot of home users, the majority of whom are only skilled enough to turn the computer on - don't confuse them with trying to make choices!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If this phrase is correct -- "The technology also prioritises friends, family and the frequently photographed so that the camera's smile mode will only take photos of recognised faces when they’re grinning"
what happens when, after frequently taking a family member smiling, you want to take a picture of them pouting /scowling then the camera prevents this???
Isn't this censorship?
Most of you must be under 25 to send in the types of comments that you have done;
Women in their 50's can be sexy.
I am english, live in england and there are more FAT, UGLY women in england than in America - i lived there for 10 years!
I'm not condoning this stupid woman suing, or defending her in anyway - i hate traffic wardens as much as the next person,
