Worrying stuff indeed
Might not it have been more enlightening to know how many households the 'Better Information means better care" leaflet was delivered to and how many opted out? That might give us a better picture.
PS - Ever tried applying for private health insurance without divulging a raft of personal information to an unaccountable ('cept to it's shareholders) insurance company? I don't think you'd get too far.
Yeah, maybe ..
... but does it work with a Chromebook?
Your contractual nexus is with the place that sold you the defective goods, not the manufacturer. So unless you bought the goods from an Apple Store, Apple wouldn't necessarily be a party to a Sale of Goods action.
Re: Compliance and Annoyance in One Easy Step
How is this any worse than the data Google Maps currently collects from our mobes to display traffic congestion info? You can opt out from participating but who bothers?
That'll be Johns Hopkins University then
You can't miss what you never had.
It's no great loss - I never ever got decent bandwidth with any of the 'free' WiFi providers bundled with my O2 contract. In the end I gave up bothering - it got to the point where I would turn off the WiFi to do something as pathetically mundane as look at a web page - 3G was actually faster and actually worked.
Which is a complete contrast with the WiFi service offered by Virgin Media on the London Underground - when it first went live about a year ago, getting a 20Mbps connection was not exceptional. If only ...
Not according to Samsung's website where you can't get a fag paper between the S and the 4 ...
Re: Was this a 'manned' or a 'mannequined' trial...?
Given the music accompanying this impressive vid, I took the passenger to be the Man in Black himself.
You're not wrong about the date.
That rival to the IBM PC, the Sirius/Victor 9000, had high-capacity (1.2MB!) Tandon floppy drives running off a custom controller the size of a motherboard. They were variable speed and yes it didn't take long for some clever clogs in Silicon Valley to knock up some Basic code that made them sing.
Inevitable knob gag.
This won't stand up in court.
The Aspire 5741 is available for £370 - if you ignore the VAT. Otherwise it's more like £420.
what's in a name #2
Or "umug" which is even more apposite.h
The 3GS elephant in the room
I´´m depressed that there´s no mention of a fix for a problem that has befallen 3GS owners foolish enough to upgrade to iOS4.n, that of the spontaneous random reboots of the phone during a phone call. The Apple iPhone discussion forum is bulging with over a thousand complaints (and heading for 200,00 views) from disgruntled owners - me included.
Call me unreasonable but I do think it would be nice to be able to make uninterrupted phone calls with a phone every now and again.
Nah, it was really really really loud .....
Dunno about commuter Steve Cooper's auditory capabilities but judging by his comments I reckon he's a bit mutton. Either that or a lilly livered wuss. I was at Bank yesterday afternoon and the screeching was excruciatingly loud - so loud in fact that I had to put insert a digit or two in to my King Lears. Otherwise it was actually painful. So speaks a willing attendee at one of the loudest rock concerts ever, at Charlton in 1976 ....
