And yet when I go to my GP the waiting room is empty even though next available booking is 1 week later and its the only appointment left and online seems to be 2-3 weeks.

Just add what Cynical Observer has said...
The "Minister of Fun" was also talking about the changes to the TV Licence regarding the iPlayer.
Basically saying if you watch anything on iPlayer whether it's being broadcast live or not you will need a TV Licence. They are wanting to push this through Parliament as soon as possible.
So I'm guessing that if any device has iPlayer on it, time to cough up the TV tax.
May want to read this
Seen this at the bottom of the story on BBC web site about iPlayer "loop hole"...
Mr Whittingdale (Culture Secretary) also launched a new drive to tackle ad-blocking, saying it poses a similar threat to websites that illegal file-sharing did to music and film a decade ago.
"This practice is depriving many websites and platforms of legitimate revenue," he said. "It is having an impact across the value chain, and it presents a challenge that has to be overcome. Because, quite simply, if people don't pay in some way for content, then that content will eventually no longer exist.

Just waiting for the first stories to appear that blocks Sky's On Demand service from showing films that "may contain sexual scenes".
Will this mean the prediction of Clara's death may actually be her "double" that dies?
And all this time Clara was a sleep and has no idea who the Doctor is?
We should sue Ad companies for using up our bandwidth.
Thought it was a BOFH story :(
Just had to check the date of the news story because I remember reading something similar months ago... Quick Google search... Yep.. August 2014
I just completely ignore the cookie banner. It's a stupid law.
As AC above puts it "If the EU wants to do something useful, the need to impose laws against cross-site tracking except when allowed via explicit and informed user consent."

Good old classic...
Wonder if it sells well if Apple create iNappy and link it to the iPhone.
I wouldn't use Tesco for anything other than groceries if I had to shop there.
Re: Yahoo, Compuserve, AltaVista
Looking at some of the messages on ASP.NET forum in MVC section, Bing will not only need to help them out but write the entire application for them.
Just waiting for the next story that he claimed in-app purchases on expenses.
Re: I miss
Shame they didn't update the original loot to the new item level.
Instead all bosses except Ragnaros gave gold and everyone got a helmet from Raggy plus a new mount.
There could be a shift towards developing mobile apps for Windows 10 when it's available since the desktop will house mobile apps in a separate window and not full screen like Windows 8.1
"For application developers and industry, HTML5 represents a set of features that people will be able to rely on for years to come,"
The question is will all browser makers follow the same standard and render the site the same way?
"Clearly, the rebuilt DVLA site wasn't ready for showtime today, so questions have to be asked about why the GOV.UK team waved the wobbly beta website through."
The users are the beta testers.
Does the sales include people reselling them iPhones on day 1 as well?

My old Garmin Sat Nav uses GPS location whether to unlock the device automatically at home or asks me to enter a PIN number to unlock it.
"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.

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?
