Oh wait! - they are not that self - starting.
As an IT consultant, I often get asked for advice (don't we all!?).
And I always recommend against the (technically superior?) Apple products for all the reasons expressed above.
Better change of provider.
I swopped to Giff Gaff. (Yes I know it piggybacks off O2, but the service is MUCH better.)
....with Skype being owned and run by MICROCRAP.
They don't know how to do anything now Big Bill does not run the show.
Sorry, but it's true.
......would anyone who looks at such things EVER even think of implementing a CRAP, sorry I mean SAP system?
.....and add another 3 (or was it 4) failures - and that was only my test machine!
The "clever" thing Blundersoft are doing is to make you use an .iso so it won't authenticate the product key, which means: "Go buy a new licence".
BOG OFF BLUNDERS OFT!
Rule 4 - switch to GiffGaff.
Does this obvious lack of testing mean they are using ex-Blundersoft testers?
Crapita + O2 = DOUBLE disaster.
Go GiffGaff (best of contract AND PAYG)!
Anything I ever bought from Imation was CRAP!
...she now knows if the answer really is 42.
The problems with getting your email hosted by your ISP become obvious when you change ISP!
What are your (free) alternatives? Crapoutlook? (AKA coldmail & dead.co.uk) GodMail?
....that SAP is used for their billing systems by npower and Scottish Power, who are rated the WORST two energy suppliers, both being unable to produce bills in a timely manner.
......are these gentlemen going to fall on their swords?
....it could solve Greece's debt problem?
....is likely to be FLAWED.
This is the Windows 8/8.1/(9)/10 effect - produce CRAP, then screw up the fix.
How long before enterprises switch to Android desktop?
Er, no - it has already died
....it should be CRAPITA.
I think you mean McCRAPafee.
Installation of Flash (sorry CRASH) has been trying to foist McCRAPafee on unsuspectiong users for some time - STOP IT!!!!!
Crap + Crap = Crap squared.
NO! (they don't).
If their idiot call centre staff ACTUALLY did what their customers wanted (first time), they would not NEED so many call centre staff.
Pay peanuts, get monkeys.
Crap + Crap = Crap squared
er "CrackAfee" - do you mean McCRAPAfee?
" it sounds like a flaw still exists in the Flash player..."
Er, YES, just the one or two........... MILLION
Rename as crash.exe
...YET ANOTHER disaster impending from Microshit.
"A whole browser written entirely in Flash would be pretty, don't you think?"
I have renamed it as "CRASH" 'coz that's just about all it does.
"Let your partners in, but not so much they can destroy the whole foundation."
Er... I think you will find Microsoft have done that for themselves.
"I would love something to use to try for a better deal...."
You need to look at GiffGaff. m8.
BT stands for Bunch of Tossers, BTW
If the npower and Scottish Power experience is anything to go by, no one will be able to get information out of the system, anyway.
" Lockheed said its goal was to develop a version that can be mounted on vehicles."
I want to mount one rearward facing on my car to sort out those pesky tailgaters!
sixth time in eight months.
If Bill Gates was dead, he would be turning in his grave..
GOVERNMENT RED TAPE!!!!!
....will be available on launch/flash sale day?
It's the same problem Microsoft had with Windows 8 phone. It will flop big time.
0.01 degrees C - From my experience working with scientific equipment, that constitutes "NOISE".
Any opportunity business and government can take to screw the public, more like!
I thought that meant "Total Inability To Support Useless Programmers".
Any variants on that?
Oh! you mean "CRASH"!!!!!!
"Long term, though, if Windows is to have any future on tablets, the desktop has to go."
Er, I think you will find most multi-tasking, multi-user operating systems (like Windows NT, Linux and Unix) can support alternative UI "shells".
It wouldn't take a genius to have this as a user-selectable/switchable option.
But there again, Microsoft don't seem to have the brains left to fix simple faults, let alone realise what they actually CAN do (quite simply) with a bit of sensible coding. I blame that Salesman Ballmer for stupidifying Microsoft.
But don't get me going on their failure to actually TEST ANYTHING PROPERLY - for evidence, look at the number of patches to just-released patches.
And whoever let the Windows 8 TIFKAM UI past the 1st alpha (internal release) test needs sacking!
It's not so much Flash Bash as Flash - CRASH!!!!!
......getting involved with Oracle software.
What was the difference between v10.1.5.84.258.1254.12.15.27
Which is the version I should be using?
What apps will it screw up?
Ans: use the CD with the BLUE label (or was it the RED label?) and make sure you select the right options during install or NOTHING will work - AAAAAGGGHHHHH!!!
In the old days, you never got sacked for buying IBM. Now that is all different.
It seems to me anyone BUYING IBM should get sacked. Just ask npower who they got to implement their CRAPSAP billing system.
Bring back magnetic core memory........ Same amount would only weigh about.... Oh wait!
Windows Phone ISN'T and NEVER WILL BE a "REAL" success.
Since BillG left them to it, MicroCrap haven't got a clue. Witness the poor WinPhone sales, various PC upgrade, Hotmail and cloud failures recently. They don't care and don't test properly any more.
BTW - by "success", I mean something people want and can use like Android (if you want cheap, but not nasty) or IOS (if you have too much money to burn).
Don't make good bedfellows any more.
TESTING, TESTING, TESTING, 1-2-Oh wait!
.....including Lenovo actually BUY ANYTHING Iomega?
Those of us with long memories remember their outrageous "Click of Death" but NO SUPPORT fiasco.
Since then, I have always stopped my users buying Iomega.
