The department refused to release the revised cost of the project following its major delays, the completion date, or the report by Deloitte citing "commercial confidentiality.
Or maybe the cost to the taxpayer has gone through the roof and you want to release that information quietly later on hoping no one will notice.
In September, justice minister Shailesh Vara insisted the rollout of the new NOMS IT system is scheduled to be completed in 2016. "The final cost of the rollout of the new system is estimated to be within the original budget," he said.
Is that the original revised budget?
“In my view, it is BT’s investment that has helped the UK to become one of the strongest digital economies in the world and I am proud to have contributed," Garner said.
BT's investment that is continuously propped up by the taxpayer.
"Openreach is now poised to take the UK from a superfast to an ultrafast nation and I am confident it can achieve this as part of the BT family," he added.
Superfast what a joke. I know people that can't get anything over half meg.
Talk Talk just keep on giving headlines to the media.
I would have thought if they were going to do a marketing campaign especially with all the media attention they would at least check the facts and figures on it.
I perfectly understand how things work but that doesn't mean they should work that way.
Isn't it about time TalkTalk just held their hands up and accepted they were stupid, apologise properly and give a detailed explanation of what went wrong.
Thank you Microsoft for thinking of me and my PC. I understand you love Windows 10 and want everybody to share in it's extreme awesomeness.
For your information Microsoft, I hate Windows 8 for it's awful GUI and after using Windows 10 for a few hours I'm going down the same route with that OS as well.
I built my PC, it's my PC and I will decide what OS gets installed on it.
TalkTalk plays 'no legal obligation' card on encryption – fails to think of the children (read: its customers)
It might not be a legal requirement but it is certainly best practice.
Getting hacked three times in a year beyond stupid, their security and procedures must be laughable.
Pay peanuts and you get monkeys.
The boss of the CIA has work emails in his personal AOL account.
Work emails in his personal email account *facepalm*
He uses AOL *double facepalm*
Instant dismissal is required.
A load of marketing twaddle. I'll stick with my USB powered rocket launcher.
Imagine that, I never knew building up a business could be so easy.
Maybe he wanted to get caught, cry for help?
Why not build a artificial volcano then they can have a volcano lair.
I'll keep my shaggy beard with the grey go faster stripes
"The United States does not and has not engaged in indiscriminate surveillance of anyone, including ordinary European citizens," the mission insists. Instead, "the PRISM [mass internet surveillance] program ... targeted against particular valid foreign intelligence targets, is duly authorized by law, and strictly complies with a number of publicly disclosed controls and limitations."
Which appears to argue that because the program is legal under US law, it can't be "indiscriminate."
Authorised by law in your country means nothing over here.
AVG has been slow and very bloated for years now.
Pop ups, nag screens I can accept but slurping browsing / search history is a step too far.
Another round of promises from BT that will come to nothing.
"Patterson said that BT, left in its current incarnation, would deploy "ultrafast" broadband services of 300 to 500Mbps to 10 million homes and SMBs by the end of 2020"
How many homes are there in the UK?
An over the top reaction to a electronics geek with a home made clock.
Who knows this kid may be the next John Bardeen or Thomas Edison.
Take the money, houses and everything else. Let her serve for time and then deport her.
Then find the rest of the gang and if in this country do the same.
What about the motivational messages on loop?
Don't forget that the people who are swatting also have to share the blame.
Why would anyone want to send a SWAT team around to someone's house. The mind just boggles.
The code doesn't get validated and it just lets you straight through, that is priceless.
I wonder how long this hole has been there.
I legally purchased the CD so I will do with it as I please. As long as it's for my private usage and not shared around my friends and the internet I don't see the problem.
I would expect a new system to have a few issues to begin with but for £131 million I would expect it to work with the systems in place.
Another NHS IT system over budget and not fit for purpose. That is certainly a huge shock.
Where exactly was the £40 million spent?
30 million on consultancy?
1 million on the tender process?
5 million on new hardware?
4 million on making the system?
So they decide to not patch the issue, what are they going to do simply ignore the issue?
It's their additional software that they have installed so they should be patching it.
Surely a little inconvenience for LG is acceptable so that they can protect their customers.
XP market share declining is to be expected as most businesses are migrating off of the old unsupported platform. People migrating off of XP can either go to Windows 7, Windows 8 or Linux hence the market share increase.
Almost time to say goodbye to old reliable.
The IT services market should be growing so i'm not sure why they are trying to pull the plug on it instead of sticking with it.
If it's going to cost more money than it's worth to close it down why don't they split it off and sell it on to someone who can grow that part of the business.
Just reading about it makes me think security issues. This setting should be defaulted to off.
The one hell of a bug
Nature will find a way.
Java on the hit list again why i'm I not surprised by this.
The people of the Falkland Islands voted to remain an overseas territory of the UK and that's good enough for me. As long as they remain a overseas territory we should protect them with everything we have.
Good Afternoon this is ****** from Microsoft.
Your PC is spamming the internet this problem needs to looked at immediately or we will disconnect your internet / your PC will blow up or bad things will happen to you.
We know it's your PC because your product code is ********************************
String the person along for as long as possible and then laugh down the phone at the person.
I don't know what was said but that seems a little over the top.
"This software poses a high threat to your PC."
I wouldn't go that far but you still have to be careful with installers though.
What a shocker EE have the most complaints.
My friend who is using EE internet is always complaining about buffering, lag and speed issues.
It's not just IT security at small and medium businesses that is the problem.
I was doing some network work for a small company in my local area. While working on an issue in their finance department one employee got credit card details (including 3 digit security code) from someone over the phone and wrote the details on a post it note. This person then went up to the payment machine found it was in use and stuck the post it note next to the machine and walked back to the phone to continue speaking with the customer.
This has publicity stunt written all over it.
A car however useful is still a lethal weapon in the wrong hands and when driver is distracted.
I've had my share on run ins with distracted drivers.
I had a close call a few years back with a lady talking on her mobile phone. She did a u turn and shot out of a junction clipping me with her driver side wing mirror as I was crossing the road. She was completely oblivious to what she had done and drove off.
I'm so happy that Doom is coming back, I love the Doom series and have played each game to death.
IDDQD, IDKFA, IDFA, IDCLIP, IDSPISPOPD, IDBEHOLD
I think i'm going to get the chainsaw started up.
So vendors have been told about this and they've known for a few months but according the advisory only one manufacturer seems to have done something about it.
Why would a car manufacturer design a boot that can only be locked remotely with a fob it doesn't make any sense to me.
When are we going to see driverless buses and trains I wonder.
Re: But what do they hope to find out?
"Once the data has been harvested, collated, indexed and analysed, South Korea will have scientific proof of what teenagers actually do. Spout angsty bollox to each other whilst streaming music & video by any chance?"
Should that be spout angsty bollox to each other whilst streaming music & video so loud that everyone in a mile radius can hear it.
Where did it all go wrong for them?
