One out of two
The air quality in Middlesbrough surprisingly isn't that bad. The streets you're right about mind.
Well done, this is one of the most coherent and well written comments I've seen on one of these articles.
2GB is just not enough?
Really? As I've ran an older model Macbook for about 18 months with 2GB, and that's been with a code environment, Terminal, two Safari windows loaded with multiple tabs, Mail.app, iTunes, Launchbar, TextEdit, TextWrangler and so on, and so on. Never got slow down, everything was snappy.
iPhones & Unemployment
a) you can pick up a second hand iPhone for not a lot now, and Apps don't just run on iPhones there is the cheaper option of an iPod Touch, b) they may have bought it when they were in happy, steady employment, c) the jobcentre isn't *just* for people who are unemployed.
At least they're trying new ideas of engagement out, and at least they also made sure it was Android compatible.
(Also should be made clear, it was developed at the start of this year in the heady days prior to the election)
A Shorter Reply
Ain't that the truth.
Yeah thank god!
Damn right! Because thats a drop in the ocean in China!
It's still 800k people, who'll probably end in crappier jobs.
Took them long enough
Back about 4 years ago I was working front line tech for Orange and the LLU was the biggest debacle I've ever come across. They should have scrapped it there and then, but persisted and carried on despite the fact that it was clearly not working *anywhere*.
Common sense but a little too late.
All of BT
All of BT Business is a shambles, and over the last year they've gotten significantly worse.
I can accept a fuck up as long as someone holds their hands up and goes "Sorry guv, this is what's gone wrong, we're sorry", rather than playing the blame game.
Colour me interested
I'm actually quite interested in this, I want an ebook reader but I'm loathe to pay £200 for one (more if I get the one I want, the Nook). This could fit a nice niche for me, between the on the go usability of my iPhone and the 'work' environment of my Macbook. Something for me to read eBooks on, use for browsing the internet whilst in the kitchen,
Yeah I'm impressed, lets hope Dell don't screw it up with a ridiculous price or hardware that feels like it's going to disintegrate in my hands.
So no titles then?
"Publishers will decide which titles are lendable".
Uh. Yeah that'll work well. If it's a book I've bought *I'll* decide who I lend it to, thanks.
I want one, so badly I'm probably going to just pay to import it if they don't seem to be launching a UK model.
Doesn't really matter to me about being able to use their eBook store, or the 3g, it's got WiFi and a USB connection so it's perfect. Plus if it's based on Android there'll no doubt some clever hackers building in functionality straight off.
RE:Re: Face Palm
Could of course put it on github and try and get people to collaborate on it, but of course it might just turn the world inside out if more people start using undocumented features.
If you're daft enough to use your own email account during a presentation, and not a test one you don't care about, then you deserve to have your password compromised.
Scotland isn't classed as with England/Wales as they have their own parliament and do it their way when it comes to the justice system, which I'm guessing covers the points they're marking the report on so would make sense for it to be split
