from me too.
This is great for further democratising the web.
People who are complaining don't realise that the majority of the planet do not understand latin characters. Not only is 'google.com' meaningless, it is illegible.
Up to now, only the educated elite were able to get access. Now every literate person should be able to get online. Regardless of whether they speak arabic, chinese, russian, afghan, etc.
It'll take a little while to get used to seeing these 'weird' domain names. Get used it!
What I don't understand is why it's just the TLD that's changing, why not everything after www.?
Not applicable to apple
To all the idiots who keep saying that it's not fair that apple don't get the same treatment.
Ms is a convicted monopolist. They are legally obliged to not use their market share unfairly.
They must follow different rules to the rest.
Get over it and shut up!
Let's see what country is (roughly) between London and South Africa? Ooh look! It's Nigeria. I wonder what would happen if they go hold of the data...? (rhetorical)
I predict a spate of 419 scams....
I also wonder what punishment the ICO or FSA will mete out? I small fine, I suspect :(
Finally, what the hell were they doing sending tapes to SA in the first place...? That's taking offiste backup to an extreme!
Doesn't bode well for HBOS...
If Lloyds decide to move HBOS infrastructure to their systems and thereby breaking compatibility, then I'm off.
I thought this kind of thing stopped a long time ago.
Does User Agent Switcher fix things?
They've clearly been watching too much csi.
Can we sue the producers for any future miscarriages of justice?
Campus agreement is better value
What's the point in students buying WIndows 7?
Most of them in the UK can get upgrade versions of Windows and several full MS apps for the cost of 'media' (£5-£10) via the Campus Agreement.
This and all the other deals that MS is having for W7 smack of desperation...
But at ~£450 it's a bit steep to try and persuade the missus :(
So that's what they're doing now...
TDK cassette's were fandabulous. I used to buy their SA90's by the truckload. I've still got them somewhere, but my tapedeck's not been unpacked since our last move 3 years ago! </nostalgia>
