Re: Please start being parents...
"Have you tried talking to any teachers of reception year and infants recently? I think you'll find that they are constantly having to teach kids that "Sharp things cut?" and "Hot things burn?" usually with side lessons in things like how to hold a knife and fork."
Agreed. Some of them turn up to my girlfriend's classes in their first term still wearing nappies.
...this is the parent's responsibility.
The kids should be learning basic maths and reading no being taught stuff parent's can't be bothered/too scared to.
Very much the same with the business users here, they do go pale when told if they break in anything other than a freak accident or get lost they will be paying for the replacement. Also require Police crime numbers to report it as stolen to get another seems to put people off.
We do get very few breakages here!
Its what I would expect of any company I worked for. The number of people I had saying their old iPhone may break near the time the new one came out was scary.
Re: I've had mine since Friday
@ Peter R. 1
That would be a more general industry question to be brought up at one of the big conferences they love doing for the industry now, CEBIT I think its called.
I am for one am pleased its starting to go this way again as it means, being a lite-ish user I will not be thinking about all day where will I charge it and how much should I use it. That is much harder on holiday as I found out recently!
Its an issue I have with current HTC One S.
Either way not too churlish as they are company devices so not going to argue against a new phone!
Why would I give all those details to a commercial company?
What happens when they sell up?
What happens if they go bust?
Won't this make them a massive target for hackers?
I don't see any benefit on giving my passport to book a hotel?! Never needed it online before.
Re: Back from the brink?
Shagbag: That is the best anti-fanboy post ever I think! Your entirely anecdotal and limited evidence proves the OS is a failure.
Re: Internet connection required
Can I ask why?
I see lots of posts about this but I don't really see an issue these days with high penetration of broadband and high speed services now.
Maybe I am missing something though!?
Re: BOOM! Shot across the bow, baby!
Come on now...this is not the place for that.
Unless its sarcasm...we love that!
Not at all
I run a network for 2 care companies (used to be 3) of around 100 desktops each. As most apps are delivered via terminal server I only want reliability, the future tech is for someone else to deal with.
I imagine you are speaking as a gamer, although I did work in a simulations environment and probably wouldn't have bought Intel boards there.
Not into a combat zone...
...but would a very useful for moving large amounts of kit troops between sites at relatively little cost compared lots of helicopters flying about I would have thought.
No credentials...just thinking!
Re: Typical Jobsian Design
Sorry but did you read the article? It underwent sea trials and then returned to Amsterdam.
This is required for insurance and also to have the ability to fly under a countries flag (whichever you choose).
Its a shame you are a hater.
Re: The sky is falling! the sky is falling!
Wow, that is an amazingly naive point of view to take.
The creation of images is in itself the act taking place, if you can stop the availability of images then hopefully you can do something to stop some of the abuse.
They are not claiming to eradicate the problem but hopefully the multiple angle approach should help in some way, even if it's just closing the legal loopholes mentioned.
Ahhh an AC post
Well done there mate, great that you know exactly what happened here and whose fault it is, why it happened and also understand the relationship between the two companies.
And then to round it off by you are that you are better than the rest of society because you are happy to wait for news on the project.
Best post I have read for a long time on here, made me smile anyway.
Re: It's a monitor.
Oh well if you can't find a use they should just stop really, in fact Viewsonic should just stop researching stuff. Now.
Just for kicks:
1) Use as a marketing board as part of a display stand
2) Or in a museum with interactive content.
3) In a boardroom/meeting room setup.
So I am going to go to Game over HMV because they have free wifi? At least you will be able to check their prices against the rivals quicker!
What surprises me more is the fact they are wasting time and money involving BT, it would be easy to get some half decent IT team to layer on another set off wi-fi over their existing, or in addition to their existing networks.
I really do be continue to be disappointed by the amount work BT get by default because they are name every one knows.
I don't normally concern myself with worrying about other people's logos...
...but that's just a bit crap.
I just don't care
About iPhone 5.
Any new Android handset.
Windows Phone 8 handsets.
There is so little difference in the marketplace its all just rubbish hype by over excited geeks. Yes the iPhone did shake up the market but now everyone has caught up its just the same.
That will be in The Metro tomorrow
....and people will be repeatedly asking me whats best because of a drip of irrelevant tech news.
Thanks Dixons you have spoiled my day!
Never got this...
"Google is the subject of an antitrust investigation into alleged abuses of the advertising market: one complaint is that it favours its own websites and services higher in the rankings than they should be."
If they own the website then surely they can organise it how they want?! Or am I missing something?
I wouldn't be in the least bit surprised if I made a website same as an existing Google product and came second.
Re: Google had not responded to our request for comment
We don't know how long they had?
Or what else is going on?
Looking him up on web...
...when trying to employ him (yes we all do it) is going to have these rants on top of the original crime. Any thought of rebuilding his reputation is gone.
He should have just apologised, said he was going to rebuild his life and left it at that.
There is logic
If they didn't pay for all the full legal bells and whistles (its only small anyway) then I bet they saved a few million on each side anyway so probably kept that as purchase price reward for a quicky deal.
(Work in a company with acquisitions going on all the time and legal fees can be eye watering even though they are only relatively small deals of £1-2m).
I like it, just because he didn't follow protocol everyone has a go, I bet if did it the other way and it cost a fortune the same people would also LOL.
Re: A plague on all of them
Oh dear, as the above poster said you are just stigmatising a new technology.
Various things have been on the brink of destroying "the good old days" and general social skills, to name just a few:
1) The Walkman
2) The Gameboy and handheld games machines
3) Computer games
4) TV in general
5) Text messaging
And thats just from my youth.
Re: Peole don't say tablet - they say iPad
I agree with you on those points.
Are you telling me people test out the apps on both and buy the one with the highest quality? Of course not.
They buy what people are using on the TV (think of Jake on Beeb F1 that has to be best placement ever for their market!), on the adverts and in the stores.
Plus you are right with the name as well.
I love the mindless belief
that they shouldn't have to pay to replace a door they kicked in for no reason because they had reasonable belief it was in there.
You make a mistake then you say sorry and try some repatriations. After all, he is not being unreasonable and you want people on your side.
Are you their CEO or something?
They left because they weren't allowed to purchase other businesses, all your other stuff is sales speak for everything is fine but we're leaving.
Also never heard of the venture before and never been offered products from them by any of our channel resellers.
Its a step in the right direction...
...but I see that he is still Chairman and a few other things, so will just be tugging at different strings.
Thats what happened at our business, CEO became Chairman but still very much in charge behind the scenes.
"Market is fragile" OR
...your shops are rubbish, your staff are poorly trained in customer service and the product and your stuff is over priced?
Nah blame the market!
Even HMV realised (eventually...) that they were flogging a dead horse!
Should say enjoy the rest of your day! But funny stuff...it will come eventually, the Daily Mail will have an article on it somewhere.
Or the BBC, they love a good "one day" science story.
Exactly right, otherwise you would say "battery life is briliant and much better than our rivals".
As per my above post. Not all jobs are just about the money.
Not all jobs and posts are about the money.
I see no issue with this...
...it will be all fine, the correct tech, on budget and on time too.
Such as the history of government IT projects I have full faith.
