I have two phones:
The one I use: Featurephone
The one I don't use: Smartphone
Some fireworks display if one could watch this for a few minutes.
Free and fast with your number
I restrict to whom I give my mobile number and as a result get about 1 item of spam a month.
"One of the most memorable things - and something that was perhaps vital to the project - was Steve saying 'don't think of me as a client, think of me as part of the team'.”
With a 2 hr break in the timeline did time itself stop?
They consulted their doctor.
An apple a day keeps the greenhouse effect away.
By paying low taxes the effective cost of capital of these companies is lower than their competitors. Consequently they have an unfair advantage when it comes to both pricing and investments and can take predatory actions that lead to lower competition in the market and ultimately higher prices.
From a vendor too
We have been running a backup service for 17 years. We have always stored the data in our own data centre for accessability and the issues discussed above. We charge a bit more because of this, but our clients know where their data is and our T's and C's have always said that it is their property (but not the actual media).
Imperial only please. They are natural and God given - like £sd. The currency going metric in 1971 resulted in enormous cost and inflation with no tangible benefits. £sd forced kids to learn a bit more arithmetic. Leave SI units to science.
You've all got it wrong - its a double bluff. They moved to Server 2008 but skinned it to look as though they'd skinned W7, hoping Microsoft would try to take them to the cleaners and they could then claim large damages!!!
Boy was that cheese high
It was the same with VHS and Betamax
Despite all the press about VHS trumping Betamax in the 90's, in parts of the world - including many countries in South America and the Near East - it was the dominant format and is/was one of the most commercially succesful products ever developed.
I don't like your views, but savage her Michael. She has lost her savvie and is a totalitarian at heart having been kidnapped by extraterrestrials and come back with the same body but a different mind.
Its more dangerous than drinking and driving
The title says it all.
There are roughly 2000 million bus journeys and 1000 million tube journeys/year in London. According to TFL 85% of bus journeys and 60% of tube journeys are paid for by Oyster card i.e. 2300 million journeys. The contract costs 10000 million p/yr i.e. just over 4p/journey
50 years based on what?
Do we have any information on the accelerated life tests used to justify 50 years?
What are the storage conditions required to ensure 50 years, including acceptable margins ? We need wide margins that will apply to standard well designed "green" offices that do not rely on air-conditioning in summer and make do with minimal artificial heating in winter.
Grey imports not allowed
Contrary to the government's protestations it does in fact set the price because it gives legal protection to companies in allowing them to stop grey imports. If we could freely import software from the US and other (non-EU) countries there would soon be a true market and little to no price differences. The only reasons for the discrepanies are the legal protection afforded and the dominant position of the companies. It is no defence saying we are free to use other software because if we wish to do business with the USA then by and large we need to be compatible with their systems.
