Re: Come on 150GB a month

I call bull on this. Between crash plan, netflix and twit.tv I use 250Gb to 300Gb a month.

Typically if the wife or I work at home we use 8 to 16 Gb between us streaming tv, while working over vpns.

So, yes, p2p may be a cause, but it's not all heavy users that use it.

Netflix

For me, Netflix is a replacement, for paying for virgin or sky.

So now when i am too busy to watch netflix's admittedly limited content, its not as bad as paying £50-£60 for TV that I just wasn't watching.

However, there is still plenty on netflix I want to watch, the daughter loves netflix for kids, and I can be anywhere and watch it. No slingbox needed.

Re: Pay for my own device, and have them lock it down???

Agree, totally unacceptable. And imagine if the company wiped it.

Luckily, the likes of GOOD and Checkpoint (and more I am sure) will just control and lock down an app on the device rather than the whole device.

Morally?

Sorry, What is so "moral" about paying taxes? As far as I am concerned if a penny of tax money goes to trade unions or to the anti-democratic EU, then paying taxes is the immoral thing.

You have missed the fucking point!

Of course the climate is changing. Its always changing.

The question that is in doubt is whether its man made, or if there is a damned thing man can do about it.

Now remove that fucking unfounded climate skeptics dealt a blow line, cause that is total bullshit.

Bitcoin mining doesnt work like that.

If a botnet started to mine, the difficulty of generating a bitcoin hash would simply increase.

See http://bitcoin.sipa.be/ for the history on how computation in the network has increased along with the difficulty.

Google contradicts own counsel in face of antitrust probe

dave 81

It's not a public service

Nobody is forcing the use of google. Its not a public server!

So what right do the EU have to tell google how to run their business? From an end user point of view if I don't like the results google give me, I will use something else. (not bing though because that really is sh*t) . There is plenty of alternative search engines. And one result I hate is FSM damned link farms like this sh*tty UK company undoubtedly is.

So for FSM's sake tell the EU to f*ck off.

One-third of Aussies 'are pirates'

dave 81
Unhappy

Greed justification.

The really sick thing is that the games and entertainment industry's will use this "research" as an excuse to further inflate their overprice wares.

So instead of lowering the price so that there is less excuse to pirate, the greed principle will just escalate with high prices, and pressure on the governments to come down harder on pirates.

To the people who seem to read this site just for the IT angle, here is a way to deal with stories that may not have an IT angle...

Once you realise that it is a non-IT story, STOP READING IT, and stop posting the same old lame comments about "Where's the IT angle?"

If only it applied here

After write my MP about the police attempting to get data out of google without a court warrant, I have found out that the data protection act has get out clauses for them, and they are well within their rights to order companies to hand over our data provided that have made up the just cause. So show you want the data protection act is good for.

Your call is not important to us

dave 81
Welcome

Depends on who you get

Checkpoint Software have been using live chat for years. And as my company resells them, I have to talk to them. Live chat is my preferred method, but sometimes you get a jobs worth, and sometimes you get absolute brilliant customer service.

Luckily after most chats they offer you a chance to rate the service, and I am always honest. Don't know what notice they take of the feedback, but it does help to praise the good, and vent about the bad.

UK a 3D TV nation? Not half

dave 81

Its still a bit early

How long did the switch over from Black and White to colour take? I know that some of my older relitives still have their old B&W tv in the spare room.

Its only been recently that HD tellys have come down in price enough for the everyman. But very few people are going to replace a few year old working TV with the HD version.

And 3d will be the same. Once the price come down enough, people will buy it as a "hardware refresh" but not while their HD one is working.

Police will censor the truth about their corruption

Just like with section 44 of the terrorism act, and section 5 of the public order act, the police (scum that they are) will just use the new powers to harass people, and stop public criticise of them, just like they do now.

I reset my alarm...

And it still failed to go off this morning!

I knew of the bug, so I changed the time by a few minutes of my wake up alarm. Still bloody failed.

Luckly my daughter is still on BST and woke up for her 8:30am feed at 7:30... so was only running 30 minutes late.

Now how to reset my daughter to GMT... Tricky.

I can tell you what is happening... the results from bing! are so bad people are loading up google and getting some search results that are actually relevant to the search term.

left wing id10t's

All you Thatcher haters are morons.

Do you want the unions to run everything again?

Do you want to return to the misery of the 1970's?

Do you want to only be able to eat in a restaurant between 1:00pm and 1:30pm, and between 8:00 and 8:05pm?

Do you want tax at 98% on your savings and investments because you are "not a good socialist worker"?

Do you want strikes strikes strikes and more strikes?

Do you want wait in lines to do anything?

Because if you are against Maggie, you are for all that!!!
