"We spoke to an IT operations manager at one major NHS trust who struggled to recall being contacted by central government on the end of Windows XP."
Does the IT Operations Manager know anything about IT?
Maybe he's making his own Koin Kardashian currency and didn't wanted to be linked to Coinye
Or even have an in-house team to do the work and stop out-sourcing.
Re: Could be worse
As soon as they see this, they will...
Were they all playing Rogues?

"America was not shut down properly.
Would you like to restart America in safe mode"
Have they tried turning it off and on again?
Wonder if Blizzard will sue her for her gold for selling their virtual gold.
It is against the terms and conditions of the game.
"The energy giant led the way towards the mandated smart-meters, relying on mobile phone networks to communicate with the new power meters rather than waiting for White Space or a 900MHz radio mesh network"
And what if you're in an area with no reception?
50th Anniversary Ending
The Doctor whips out his Sonic Screwdriver and saves the day
I liked Firefly and Serenity. Pity the idiots at the network cancelled it.
Re: StreetMap Out of Date
opps... forgot to mention I compared the city centre where roads have been altered or closed and turned into pedestrian area.
StreetMap Out of Date
Just compared StreetMap with Google for my home town and StreetMap is out of date.
One step closer...
... to phasers and disruptor cannons.
As a feature the glasses will come with a Streetview overlay so you know where you are
The new SimCity is out 5th March: http://www.simcity.com/
Shame you have to be online to play it and the game will become useless if and when EA shuts down the servers.
The only problem with SimCity is that you have to be online to play it.
There has been many forum posts wanting it to be an off-line game like previous SimCities and not be at the mercy of EA when they decide to turn off the servers.
It's the type of game that you would play if there wasnt an internet connection available.
So it's your fault? :)
When I went to look at Windows 8 at PC World, nearly all laptops with Windows 8 were not touch screen.
To me it looked like the hardware manufacturers just dumped Windows 8 on old hardware (I mean hardware created for Windows 7) to try and sell old stock.
Whats next, Horsefly, Housefly and an elephant fly...
If Apple dropped their price by at least £200 for the iPhone 5 then they will get a bigger market share.
At the moment the prices on Apple's site are: 16GB : £529.00, 32GB : £599.00, 64GB : £699.00
I won't be upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 8 at all.
I will wait and see what Windows 9 will be like.
Thats if Microsoft has seen the errors of it's ways and separate the Windows interface and TIFKAM into separate OSes.
Since things are done in China more cheaply than Western countries, won't it be a pay cut if you went to work in China?
There should be a new category just for Battleship.... Worst Alien Weaponry
They were the pegs from the board game.
I've not needed to use Java in years.
I wanted to try Minecraft the other month until I realised it requres JRE.
I'll just wait for a native Windows version if they ever create one.
Time for a new Trek series based on Klingons...
Lots of fighting, battles and a lot less of Holo-Suite / Holodeck stories.
Don't forget luggage allowance and in-flight meals... That'll add to the price.
for Futurama reference...
How was this ever awarded?
It's time for Judges to tell patent trolls if they are not using "their invention" they should lose the patent.
"A fine or up to 2 years"... not much of a stiff sentence.
Whats the point???
If you want local ads on the radio you would be listen to the local radio station.
If you dont want ads it's BBC Radio.
And how many listen to Internet Radio through their phone anyway?
UTuneMe will die off before long.
Can they make it sound like a ZX Spectrum loading a game?
The Judge should order Apple to put the apology link at the top of the page so people can see it and the apology should contain Apple's name and logo to authenticate the the apology.
They changing rep grinding in patch 5.1
If you have a character at least revered with a faction, all your other characters will get double rep for that faction.
They are even going to increase the rep speed from revered to exalted.
Not part of a weather balloon then...
Re: It's all very vague anyway
"Anybody remember what Startrek Stardates were based on?"
Difficult to say. Check out http://trekguide.com/Stardates.htm for calculating Stardates.
Won't be long before you have to be over 18 to use the Internet and must hold a valid Internet License.
iOS and Android
What will this mean for Android?
Will all phone makers using Android be watching their backs?
Should they consider moving to WP8?
Re: Made in China
Not if they fire in the other direction.
Old gamer here
Don't think I've played a Ubisoft game since the Amiga days.
It has to be...
...a CGI of Hartnell.
Re: Yeah, RIGHT!!!!!
"Does this mean that Apple have admitted to Reverse engineering??"
It looks like it to me.
And don't companies have something in the small print about not reverse engineering their stuff?
They need to find out which products were reversed engineered and sue Apple.
Re: What's in a name?
Damn... Cameron Colley beat me to it...
What's in a name?
How about shorten Metro to Me and call it Windows Me.
Since it's spelt Me and not ME, it won't be confused with Windows ME.
Re: It's not the Dwarves.....
".....it's the Mithril. That's stuff's seriously expensive."
They need to head over to Azeroth. Loads of Mithril nodes to mine.
Re: You STILL get Traffic Management on 30Mbps
I'm on Virgin Media (still on 20Mb, waiting for 60Mb upgrade to happen) and when I downloaded latest Mist of Pandaria beta patch which was 20Gb I was getting 2.4Mb/s then within 30 mins this dropped down to 520Kb/s (that's megabytes and kilobytes not bits as displayed on MoP download).
That's how good VM's traffic shaping is. Over 80% reduction. Took bloody hours to download because of that.
When there was a power cut at the local Asda a few years ago, they searched your trolly for hidden alcohol, then estimate what the trolly is worth... Was £20 for £60+ of shopping.
Re: What the f*ck does this have to do with the IT industry
It so we can prepare to write a computer virus and upload it into their mothership.... oh wait that has already been done in Independence Day.
Lies, damned lies and statistics
This is all I can think of with these companies manipulating the numbers to suit their needs.
