I'll put in a theory
It was Ms Cook, so livid at never seeing her husband at breakfast since he joined Apple
Re: Only three infrastructure providers in the UK
Upvote for putting forward a logical argument on a monday morning
And how much did the administrators
realise and pay themselves?
bet that doesnt get published before the gov pay the staffs redundancy
Large government led IT poject
What could be simpler to save the taxpayers money....OH, wait.....didnt we try that someplace before like....in Whitehall last year?

Acquisitive telco player Daisy Group is taking control of defunct 2e2's data centre operations
And Daisy have been busy the last few years gobbling up other Telco's to grow, just as 2e2 did, also Daisy is haemoraging customers with their lacklustre service of the taken over companies clients....I see a repeat of 2e2 on the way....

Re: Get it right next time @ Pete 2
Chris, I salute you :)
Bash the lumbering old Blue as you will
To all the upstarts that called for Big Blue to be killed as the "dinosaur" of the IT world, this is research, not finding out how many people tweet or facebook their choice of breakfast.
Staying out of the headlines until you have something of value for the world instead of releaseing a "concept" then a few buggy attempts before quietly giving up is the way forward.
This is why Xerox, IBM, CRAY still survive, they dont follow consumer trends.
"We know of no other compound that matches "
hmm, we know of no other compound SO FAR discovered
our little ball of rock and irin isnt the be-all and end-all of the universe so far as molecular bonding goes.
I can imagine a planet where they "dust and vaccuum" to get rid of the gold and diamond dust that blows in their houses when the door opens complaining of the pesky stuff clogging their PC vents.
Re: "a classified pigeon loft"
"It's not a pigeon loft"
<then what is it?
<BUT there's pigeons in it>
"It's not a pigeon loft"
etc etc.....liek the "not the MI6 building" at the beginning of the bond film
Re: Invisible car nonsense
To my mind, that and the ice hotel scene's killed Pierce Brosnan's character of Bond and possibly led to hims dismissal.
Only from my point of view, other points of view are available :)
Will science understand
Black holes or Women first?
twas done in the 70's so why not get him to do it again
Does that 75% and 25%
Include EVERY home or just the ones located near BT Main exchanges?
Lots of Norfolk still get only dial-up as they are more than 4Km from their exchanges, will this improve?
or does the 25% and75% still only mean in major cities and towns of 5,000 or more homes?
"Blast one of those rock formations Lieutenant........"
"Cloudbase, we have a problem....."
It'll end in tears!!!
Like all ideas
There are setup and running costs, but with an island of X people it'll never be worth exporting the electricity to the mainland as the return on investment will never be realised
Then there are maintenance costs, you ever tried getting an engineer to attend a village on the mainland, let alone on an island?
Like so many good Eco ideas, if it isnt economically viable then no amount of tree hugging will get you funding.
Note to CEO
laying off production staff who actually produce stuff and generate income = COST
Laying off upper management who are a cost drain and produce little = SAVINGS
reduce costs by at least £5m a year
until they ask for something outside the tightly one-sided contract, like replace a mouse £200, update 3 copies of Visio software £1.2 million etc etc. The authorities still think these large corporations got there by being ultra nice to local authorities, get real, they got there by having their nose in the UK.Gov pork barrel.
Find out how many BT and CSC "jollies" the decision makers have attended.
Re: Reminds me of another floater...
Mythbusters disproved that theory
Beat me to it
Got his cut of the latest Gov pork barrel
He doesnt want to be there when it all comes crashing down around them
No, never worked for them, they tried to poach me for Lunar House offering half what SERCO were already paying me at another site and wondered why I refused, they said it was market rate.....depends whose market they were looking at.
Re: How odd
I cant help feeling that everything happening on the internet will be assigned to pro / anti Assange in the same way as fanboy / fandroid and MS / Apple by the Reg
Re: A Turnaround from the Old Pattern
or he couldnt get funding to build a prototype back then.
plenty of people run out of money trying to make something work or never get funding at all (Trevor Bayliss, James Dyson to name but 2 who succeded despite the banks and venture companies)
Your mistake is not accounting for
Taste in the food of Britain is a regional thing.
In Anglia you cant get a wally in a chip shop.
In Barnsley you have jam on yorkshire pudding
Irish is the only true whisky unless in scotland, japan or tenessee...
And to test it in Spain .....???
Re: Anyone know
It's that most of the inheritors of such estates then make money by selling rights out to the corporate media.
Re: how you'd design a state-of-the-art smartphone
Some of the cashiers i've seen in spain could gladly have my number
Re: Samsung's defense is that the design is generic
NO, the judge isnt buying it.....

Re: HP SAUCE not what it used to be.
Bring back O.K. Sauce!!!
That many people managed to get through the process of leaving them and of still being billed for up to 18 months afterwards.
So possible that they all left in Q3 2010 but have only just stopped being charged still for the connections :)
Re: Germany = EU ?
I think you'll find the UK, France and Germany are almost equally the biggest propers up of the EU, not just the Germans.
That Germany is the EU was a 1939 idea by the then Chancellor
Re: what? has no one else groked the first problem?
Someone on earth sent CTRL-ALT-DEL and windows 2000 home premium rebooted itself , the booster shock wiggled the ram chips and reseated them
Oh to be
Intelligent like the americans and hide the day between the month and year, such a logical language.
Re: "he smashed the tablets"
most likely failed to get an import ban so took the quicker than appeal court route
He claimed these suppliers which included HP and IBM were tabling further ideas on ways to cut costs
While keeping their bonuses.
Most attendees favoured the Capita / CSC approach to reduce staff training and sack anyone who has a clue,
this business model has been proven effective across many Gov contracts in the past
There's also the idea
That Jean Jarre will base a new album on this!
come in years after it was started and claim it's a new thing.....I can see the SER-FUJ-HP-Atos directors salivating at the prospect of bidding for another ring fenced pork barrel
With CAPITA running it
You're more likely to get the correct service by dialing 118
