I imagine like a lot of things it would be: This is your default password, change it as soon as possible.
Unsure why the thumb down on my post regarding Azure. Merely stating a fact that a fanboi can't face, it seems.
It isn't running on Azure is it? They went belly up too this week ...
Apple AppStore, anyone?
Without sounding too daft ... surely having bought Windows 8 PRO means that I'm a PRO user by name and PRO user by nature? WhereTF is my install media?!
Do people still use the 'official' Twitter app?
Plume has been a far superior Twitter client for about three years now!
Did we ever find out where the horn was?
Seems that in today's world you get paid more for breaking software than making it!

Re: Windows RT
It still amazes me how waving a little bit of banter around can still make the Product X fanboys whinge and bite the bait on webforums. Is this still 2001?
Just leave the Ouyas and raspberry Pis alone! ;)
This game was my childhood! So glad to see it re-emerge on the internet like this.
I remember saving up my pennies as a child and buying my copy over mail order from Special Reserve. I played it on the Atari ST and the PC. Well done and thank you Mr Mechner!
Re: Hmmmmmmmm / I can't see how Samba will benefit
Apple didn't like the license of Samba and then decided to write their own version in certain versions of OS X ... which ended up a pile of tripe and breaking so much when using fileshares to Windows Servers over long periods of time. (Speaking from experience here! Timeouts, File not founds, etc ...)
It doesn't surprise me they have gone to Microsoft for the official SMB2 protocol. After all, Apple hate admitting they're wrong and would rather throw money at the problem to get it solved than admit they went wrong in the first place by throwing out the more logical Samba 4 route.
To clarify: Yes, I own a Mac.
+1 for Phillip Glenister
... but only if he plays it in the style of the Gov from Life on Mars!
Anyone for a Garibaldi?
Re: It's a solution looking for a problem
Microsoft Passport, anyone?
Re: Ignoring these requests works much of the time ...
+1 for telling the law-thugs where to go and also for introducing me to the best new word I have learnt all year!
The problem with batteries ...
... is that when manufacturers make longer and better lasting batteries, tech companies make kit that just wants to consume more and more power.
If you stick one of today's phone batteries into a Nokia 3310 it'll probably last months without a recharge. (Just theoretically, obviously.)
Re: High dissatisfaction
"Errm you know that the SIII isn't Android right?"
Of course it's Android! It doesn't matter what interface changes you make or apps you preinstall or even how many go-fast stripes you put on it. It's an Android OS phone. (This photo says it all: http://mobile.it168.com/tu/1461878_1.shtml#15)
It's a bit like saying 'Ubuntu isn't Linux' but that's a different argument for another time .....
The very existence of TVCatchup is proof that the TV channels didn't get it right in the first place, hence the need for TVCatchup.
Tip to avoid getting done by such scams
Don't download crappy Facebook games or emoticon packs, don't click on ANY ads ANYWHERE and don't go digging for porn.
How hard is that? (Queue unintended pun comments...)
Re: Blah. Blah. Shut It.
I'm sure the point that was being made here is not that they have the data, more that they managed to get the data via servers' backdoors that were wide open flapping in the wind.
Re: Not 5-6 weeks for everyone
5pm? I ordered mine (N4 16GB) at about 1.30pm and got the 4-5 weeks notice ... Ah well, wait and see, I guess!
Past the age of 12
"Past the age of 12, children's interest in Apple wanes and they become less brand-focused"
I'm saying nothing more as that line says it ALL!
Re: Geez what is it @Leona A
"your phone is not broken now is it?"
Actually it is. Hence the justified disappointment!
30 minutes? More like 13!
I received the email and in no less than 13 minutes I was on the site ready to order and already the N4 was 'coming soon' again ....
Couldn't help but notice that O2 are profiteering on it too. £400? C'mon Google. Get a grip and get some more stock before I buy an HTC or Sammy or something ...
Did anyone get any screenshots?
Orange BlackBerry here too.
Our company has 20+ BlackBerry phones and about three quarters of us have no data to the handsets. Strangely enough, there are a few that are still working though. Really not sure why being as they are all on the same mobile contract.
Either way, the way we've got around the problem in the office is to enable the inbuilt wifi and connect to our company's wireless network.
What about King Con?
ISP Karoo.co.uk of Kingston Communications have been doing this on their monopolised East Yorkshire internet connections for a couple of years now......
Not quite by themselves here anymore, but still the biggest. We use Quickline internet in Hull (over the air broadband) and it's as speedy and stable as anything ... and no, I don't work for them. :)
Fatties eat more salt?
"Obese criminals are more likely to leave their fingerprints at crime scenes because of the amount of salty food they eat."
Some people are genetically fatter than others. Being fat doesn't neccessarily mean that they eat more salt.
Kinda blows yet another 'amazing discovery' out of the water then, don't ye think?
@ Paul Stephenson
'First thing I knew about it was when I read the apology email, which started "we are sorry"!'
... you got an email? Am I the only one who didn't receive it or are you the only one who did? :)
