Java != JavaScript

Confusing I know but uninstall (or at least disable) the Oracle Java Runtime unless you absolutely know you need it to do what you do. JavaScript on the other hand is useful and current and lot of sites rely on it.

Rule Britannia anyone?

And that ladies and gentlemen is why Tim B-L was in the Olympics opening ceremony - not only because of his own contributions but because of the British way of doing things - 1lb Heath, 6oz Robinson, a pint of dallying, an argument with the wife and @Ginger because it might be his contribution to the world. Love it (post-Olympic normality not yet resumed...).

In Yorkshire?

The only reason why you wouldn't setup an office in Yorkshire is because your average Bracknell based IT VAR or SI would never find the place thinking it was somewhere around Birmingham.

Wanova promises virtual desktop you can use

@ Pete 2 - did you even read that?

The point here is that you are running locally but the network connection syncs the state/config of the local VM back to a server. As such you can work offline but when online be able to pick up the VM from the server and run it anywhere either by streaming it locally again, or by running it in the traditional thin-client (keyboard, video and mouse) mode.

I don't know the details and needless to say the vendors won't be so upfront on the negative aspects such as bandwidth requirements (sync at the file system level via 3G roaming anyone?) but this approach negates the need for 'honkin great servers' running 24 x 7 regardless of the load.

London consumers trounce corporates in wireless security

And paid for networks e.g. hotels

Hotels and other public access points usually have no security but a captive portal page where you enter payment, personal details or voucher codes. Insecure by design and not accident.
