Re: Stop bigging up Three!
Agreed, I have a an excellent calling plan after ringing Three to leave some years ago because they didnt have a handset I wanted to upgrade to, so I bought the handset I wanted and got a cheap plan for calls/text/data that is less than 6 quid a month, never used it anywhere near the limits it has.
I bought an iphone this week walked across to the Three shop and got a nano sim and my number ported across to it in 10 minutes, zero cost. The guy doing it smiled when he saw my details and said I couldnt get a cheaper plan unless they started paying me to use it... :-)
Looking forward to 4G being turned on here before the end of the year as well.
Always had decent service from their support lines as well on the few times I have had a query.
Re: Can I be first...
It is taken... :-(
Can I be first...
I'm calling for owners to be referred to as Watcholes...
XP WILL be blamed
It will be interesting to see in the coming months how many times XP gets pointed to as the weak point in any hacks or data grabs. I would imagine there will be a fair few Freedom Of Information requests about the subject too...
Watch the video, physical entry is simply a very simple key lock on the front of the machine...
If only there was some sort of webpage where you could type in 4 letters and press enter and have such mysteries revealed to you...
"On the contrary - not all of us buy into the "java is insecure" rubbish that's peddled by the fanbois on El Reg."
So the 41 security fixes in this update arent really needed then cos Java is nice and secure according to you?
What? You mean IDS lied about his big project?
I find that hard to belie... oh...
So, the final curtain has appeared, I will be sorry to see them go, but its been fairly apparent since Elop dropped the big one what was going to happen.
I think I will be sourcing my Nokia phones from ebay in the future, No interest in Winpho, i'll keep my N8 running for awhile maybe grab an 808 when that dies or even an N9 to have a play with.
Too late, I moved to Feedly, I also cancelled my old reader account as they asked people to do.
The Old Reader was rather slow and clunky but i've been using it for a couple of months and it was useable, unfortunately I didnt make the cut and so I switched over to Feedly last night which seems to have improved a lot since I last looked at it, hopefully that will stay the pace.
Nice, can we have a symbian or maemo version please?
Giving them away for good PR seems one route to lower stocks
The guy has done an outstanding job at promoting the ISS during his rotation, I think he has earned lot of respect all over the world.
I read the news and was rather pissed off, as someone who is something of a news/information junkie Reader was a nice way to get through lots of feeds quickly and easily at work and home.
Now i'm thinking, why bother, get some time back and just ignore lots of the shit that passes for news these days and do something a little more productive...
Re: Hacked my arse...
The EX-top man at Blackberry...
I'll be keeping an eye on it, hope they get some decent hardware to run it on.
Re: Big Shame....
Yep, if my N8 dies i'd get another or an 808 if they had dropped in price enough, dont really fancy lowering myself to a battery guzzling Android.
Because Intel bunged em loads of cash to get one of their processors in a phone on the market?
Upgrades, they need a go faster stripe and larger rims to hit the sweet spot
Maybe google is planning to try and attract facebook user to google+ a little more pro-actively...
We may have to ask for Lester to be punished for failing to comprehend a dumbed down BBC news story :-)
I thought the 21tn figure was the total offshored cash for the whole world not just brits?
Just a slight detail mind you...
Presumably someone showed them how wrong they were...
Its sort of working now, but a bit slow in places.
I've had my N8 for a year if it does die i'd probably buy another one unless the Pureview drops a lot in price.
But its still sad to see Nokia in this sorry state, Windows Phone wasnt a good move, its lacking in features and even if it does eventually catch up with those other phones its going to be a couple of years before it gets any real traction if at all.
"Our activities have saved business, online retailers and financial institutions potential fraud losses estimated at more than half a billion pounds, and at the same time protected thousands of individuals from the distress caused by being a victim of fraud or identity crime.”
My bullshit detector went off after reading that, do they use a similar system to record companies to evealuate the fraud they have prevented for some lovely PR gush?
Re: email list
Why, do you need to add some more friends on Linked-in?
I'm sure Nokia will be chuffed with the yearly software updates... No honestly...
Security, we've heard of it...
"It’s essential that every business that handles payment card information adhere to the highest standards to protect the security and privacy of cardholder information and remain vigilant over time," Visa said in an emailed statement.
Not sure how this stacks up with NFC visa cards giving out cardholder names and places like Amazon accepting orders based on the information gained from sniffing those cards
Good grief, somebody shoot that PR spinner before they start attracting black holes....
Well now they have my IP address, hope they have fun with all the ones they are collecting :-)
Where is the N8?
Oh come on, you couldnt be bothered including the most acknowledged camera smartphone out there?
We've heard of it...
Just read this post about a previously unknown company overnight becoming the highest trading HFT on the new york exchange...
I dont think Andrew has seen the price point of the N9, too high!
Carphone warehouse site went down too, it was just showing a maintenance message when I clicked on the link, couldnt back to the front page either.
Obviously the PR people saw all the comments from people hating on Elop for effectively killing meego after they launched the N9 the other day and decided they needed to prove how wonderful the Nokia wp7 experience will be.
Sorry Nokia you failed badly, the N9 looks way better than wp7
Just found it in my spam folder as well and passed it on to CS at travelodge.
Time to move on
Come on Bill, get with the times, buy your own domain, you can choose whether or not to host web stuff on it and you can route your mail through any provider you like, personally I do it through google apps for some decent mail filtering.
Shame on you Ms Bee, I nearly spilt coffee when reading that :-)
Why werent these media slut jokers first up against the wall when elop signed up to the windows phone revolution?
Honestly they could save a fortune getting rid of most of the new media crap they put out.
It was nice knowing you Nokia (Mostly)
I just grabbed an N8 to tide me over, great hardware as usual, and I can put up with the OS quirks for another year while the Android stuff matures a bit more and they get rid of some of the remaining bugs out of the OS.
There might even be a half decent way to get apps without your device getting raped by then as well.
Look up a zt-180a
Not brilliant but cheap and slightly better battery life than the cheaper ones and an up to date OS
I bet theres a few lawsuits suddenly appear next month :-)
For symbian try Joikuspot on OVI
Free version lets you use it as an unsecured wifi hotspot, paid version lets you secure the hotspot
