Fibre box apeared at the end of my street.....
rang up O2 sorrry SKY I want my MAC code..
"Why, have you not heard of our offers for O2 customers and we do Fibre too"....
5 Mins of sales talk offering full sky package for "free" for 12 months....
"Do you provided fixed IP?"
"No, a lot of O2 customers keep asking about that....."
"MAC code please"......
Now a happy customer on Plusnet, gone from 2.5-3meg to 67Meg and yes I have fixed ip!
Oh dear Northern Fail will have to reprint all their station time tables, did anyone else ever use the MS tags???
My friends on her second Experia Z, first went back as the wifi reception was so weak you had to stand next right next to the router to get any signal.
The second wifi was find on, 1 month later the middle part of the usb connector came out stuck in the chargher lead. CPW answer when asked for repair/replacment, physical damage not under warranty and they wouldnt do a PAID repair on it saying it was beyond economical repair!!
She manghed to get it repaired for £20 but the non authorised repair center she took it too says the warranty will be void now and they cant guarantee it will still be "water proof"
So if your thinking of one avoid like the plague as both problems are well reported on the net!
Not sure what the real issue is here. In our small town I can happly get free Cloud at most of the local pubs. Even out local Greggs has free Cloud and it only big enough for 4 customers at time to que for baked treats!
I'm not one for wanting to stand outside some misfortunate BT customers house in the rain to use their wifi....
I'm on 02 and was never offered free wifi with my contract, then again its that old it also doesnt have a "fair usuage" cap on the unlimted data :->
What do you expect when you try and join a cult?
"....download speeds slower than the 384 kb/s EDGE achieved in its best moments."
Strange as the N95 was 3G and supported HSDPA upto 3.6mbps.,so the orignal iPhone was a slouch in reality to other products.
The N95 was probably the best phone Nokia produced, as all the feaures mentioned it also had hardware accelerated 3D graphics engine through its PowerVR core in the OMAP processor (something the late n96 and n97 lacked).
Also it had a SIP client for VOIP which came into great use on holidays to get free incomning calls .Friends call my uk voip number using there free evening calls plans,I'd be sat on wifi at the hotel......
Also it had an infraRed port to. Greatest use I found for that was to hack my LG flat screen to get up the engineers menu to enable the USB playback function using "irRemote S60)
But it piece de resistance was it made and recived calls with out fail over GSM. We had an office of 4 people, 3 with iPhones and myself with an N95. All on O2 but the guys would regualry get voice mails without the phone ringing when calls always came through to the Nokia........
Re: dont get it
Also add in the reduction in battery life as the apps hang around in the background like a bad smell
AVG almost as bad as Norton
AVG used to be a good product and I had the paid version running on mine and families pc`s. But these days its turned into slow bloat ware that’s good at false positives and not
good at actually protecting pcs.
Personally I rate AVG as almost bad as Norton for making a standard pc unusable. You'll know when it's reached that status as PC World will start trying to flog it with every new pc......
I tried this out on my new laptop and it is junk. Go into Word try to open a file on your local pc.
The old days ALT-F O..... Now at least mouse clicks on various icons to get the dialog open.
Then the fact its try to force Sky Drive on to you rather than use local storage....
One of out local pub has Cloud Wifi..... handly provided by Gregs The Bakers next door!
They didn't research the name either, just type POP STATION into you tube and watch one of the hilarious reviews by Dr Ashens
throw a lumb of Lead in there surely that will sheidl the nastys enough?
Developers Developer Developers????
The problem with developing for Windows 8 phone is the SDK forces you to use Windows 8 Pro if you want to use the device emulator to debug your code. Ask my development team if they want to install Windows 8 on their desktop PC`s/Laptops and wouldn't want to repeat the answer......
Shipping time do seem to have slipped on the last couple of orders I've had from them. Seems they also relocated the warehouse from Manchester to Montpellier in France.....
Good to see Stephen Fry is still eligible to testify
Re: Wow, I think you noticed it...
havre to slightly disagree with that list
Windows 95 pretty good
Windows 98 buggy unstable mess
Windows 98R2 was Decent
Windows ME sucked
Windows XP good
Windows Vista was the second coming of ME
Windows 7 good
Windows 8 I predict will suck worse than the other failures combined.
I think you will find Ian Williamson was the original inspiration behind the MK14, but this part of the story tends to get brushed under the carpet. Even the BBC`s "Micro Men" missed this part of the story out.
Retro shipping dates....
Apparently Sir Clive Sinclair is in charge of the delivery and is guaranteeing everyone Raspberry Pi will be delivered within 28 days.....
Will delivery be in the same 28 days QL`s took to arrive?

Oooo I am sooo scared
