Yes Matt, you are...
Some oversights in this approach
If these automated calls go to an answering machine, that means that the scammer will know it's a real number with a valid recipient. Equivalent to replying to a spam email and confirming to the spammer that the email address has a valid recipient.
Maybe I should have been clearer, Sky's online offering of content blows VM's out of the water.
LGI had a big rollout of a decent new online service last year in the Netherlands. If they buy VM then hopefully us VM customers will get something that actually rivals Sky's online offering!
Do you think...
...Gartner outsourced this report?
Guess I'm one of the lucky ones
First of all, I'm not trying to defend VM, just sharing my own experience.
I recently was "upgraded" to the superhub (about 6 weeks ago) and did notice the packaging had been opened to put a label over the power socket on the hub saying "Do not use your old PSU".
I've not had any issues at all (except the routing problem which crippled Youtube that wasn't down to the hub itself), I'd be interested to know if the people who have the problems are using older kit?
When will you people get bored of typing that on every bloody thread?
Correllation != Causation
"While I agree from a legal/ethic standpoint it seems to be sales this generation were directly related to how easy the console was to hack (WII trivial, Xbox harder, PS3 damn hard)."
Wii launched in 2006 @ £179
360 launched in 2005 @ £280
PS3 launched in 2007 @ £425
I think that is directly related to sales in this generation.
A headline about Yahoo! with only one exclamation mark!
Re: something is amiss here....
"far better for it to be run by a private company that has an interest in keeping it's customers happy and improving services."
And there is the key flaw with privatisation of public services. The private companies that run these services have only one goal. To make as much money for their share/stakeholders as possible, if that happens to result in happy customers and improved services then great! Unfortunately 99.9% of the time it results in customers being screwed at every turn and worse service.
"4 in brits are dumb!"
How does the "brits" measurement scale translate into number of elephants in an olympic sized swimming pool?
Re: Mobile phone use
"Or would they have been doing their makeup, playing with the radio, looking in the glove box for sweets, reading a magazine, chatting to a friend in the car, turning round to slap the kids
Since there isn't a specific act to ban any of those then they can't pose any sort of serious hazard to driving"
There is an act to ban all of those, and any others. It's called driving without due care and attention.
If it's between the account and password pages, then what is stopping the crims from finding out what your picture & phrase are?
Sorry? Did you mean to comment on this: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/10/10/ftth_council_uk_penetration_knocked_again/ ?

Re: Great image, but
"If the youngest galaxy was formed 450 million years after the Big Bang, it is not 450 million years old, it is ~13.3 billion years old."
It was 450 million years old when the light used to produce this picture was emitted, therefore in the picture it is 450 million years old.
Increased risk of death?
How can being fat or skinny increase the risk of death? The probability of death is 1/1, you can't increase that!
The font looks shockingly bad in Chrome.
And no mention in the article of how to change it back (if you wanted to for whatever reason).
In the email settings there's an option to hide from timeline, which has been set on all non fb email addresses, easy to change back if you're that way inclined.
Still, they shouldn't have blanket changed everyone's settings without notification anyway.
Virgin Media laid half a mile of cable in York just last month. I know this because I'm now connected to it.
Surely the problem...
...is a combination of over population in the affected areas, much more people than the water systems were designed to ever need to cope with, coupled with the sheer idiocy of having companies, whose only purpose is to make a profit, running vital infrastructure.
And before the pedant-mobile turns up, all private and publicly held companies exist for one sole ultimate purpose, to make a profit. That's the part of capitalism that people fail to understand.
All the previous comments already deal with Lewis, so I needn't add anything more there :-)
So the ASA have basically said...
...that I can advertise my product as doing everything, just so long as I include the footnote that "This product may not be available in all languages or in all areas, and features may vary by area."
And here's an example of the extreme weather conditions in the North East:
Now you see it
Now you don't
And I bet you end up needing to buy new buds a lot when the left one dies...

No software warranty I can understand, but no hardware warranty will be a hard sell to the OFT
