France bans managers from contacting workers outside business hours

Nathan 13

I agree

If someone is paid from 9-5 12-8 8-12 etc then dont contact them outside their paid hours.

'Bank couriers' who stole money from OAP cancer sufferer jailed

Re: Best common sense tip?

It works like this to avoid calls dropping when transferring from one internal handset to another.

A better solution would be to not hand over your card or reveal your PIN number to anyone, just like the literature says in bold when you receive your bank cards in the post.

Yes I understand that the elderly are vulnerable sometimes, but banks do take a sympathetic view and will refund vulnerable customers as a rule.

Hey, Michael Lewis: Stop DEMONISING Wall Street’s SUPERHUMAN high-speed trading

Nathan 13

Fine line

Fine line between tighter bid/offer spreads (Which is good for average Joe) and market abuse (which is illegal but goes on all the time)

A global 0.5% stamp duty on every HFT trade would soon put a stop to the problem!

This changes everything: Microsoft slips WinXP holdouts $100 to buy new Windows 8 PCs

Nathan 13

$1000 wouldnt be enough

I have had this misfortune to use a W8 laptop.

What a total pile of shit. The bluetooth mouse needed to be paired again on every re-boot. The graphics card crashed all the time, the wireless network would keep dropping every few mins, the "shared graphics" was just a shambles, and I could not select the AMD 8000 card to work with my browser or certain applications which insisted on using the inadequate intel HD graphics resulting in piss poor performance.

All in all I wanted to throw the laptop out of my window!!

The worst computer experience I have ever had!!

HTC looks to cheaper phones as revenues wane

Nathan 13

@ Zack

Before smashing the phone to bits I would have left it re-booting all night until the battery died. A forced shutdown due to lack of electrons moving around!!

No HTC

your flagship HTC one trounces the latest Samsung phones in build quality, looks and speed.

Just advertise it a bit better when you make the HTC two!!! (And add an SD card and removable battery :)

How the NSA hacks PCs, phones, routers, hard disks 'at speed of light': Spy tech catalog leaks

And we wonder why

So many people hate the US/UK governments.

Whodathunkit? Media barons slit own throats in anti-freetard crackdowns

Nathan 13

I bought a legal digital copy of Scarface last year.

Took about an hour to "activate", and I was only allowed to activate it on one pc and watch it.

Needless to say I wont doing that again anytime soon.

The "blueray rip" I now have is better quality, plays on anything, and doesnt expire.

Samsung: The cash blizzard continues, but may not last forever

Nathan 13

Im not overly impressed with Samsung. Bought a HDTV and a Galaxy S3 and both are lacking the "X Factor" despite their premium prices IMO. Will be deserting them for my next purchase, I just think they are average rather than "cutting edge"

On a selfish note

I have not chosen to have children as I believe the human race is destined for a severe culling one way or another within the next 20-30 years.

And as a 43 year old I have enjoyed every day on this planet that I can remember.

So if the world does end tomorrow I can say its been a great life!!

Psst, wanna block nuisance calls? BT'll do it... for a price

Nathan 13

100% sucessful solution

Just screen all calls, family/friends/genuine callers will speak after the tone, all sales calls will hang up before the greeting is finished.

Although sometimes I like to pick up the phone and have some fun :)

Official: Fandroids are smarter/tighter* than iPhone fanbois

Nathan 13

£60/$100 a month

Thats an insane amount to pay for a phone contract.

Considering you can currently get unlimited calls + texts + data for £21 a month with T-Mobile, (or if your really frugal you can get 100mins + 100 texts +400mb of data FREE every month on Ovivo), one has to be mad to pay that much, even with a free Iphone thrown in.

At the end of the day a phone is a phone, and no matter how much it cost it will be out of date in 6-12 months.

When we are all using either iOS164 with its 10 by 30 row of icons and ability to run 2 apps at the same time, or Windows52 with its revolutionary multiple windows tiles.

EE touts 4G Sim-only tariffs

Nathan 13

So

As people use much more data, and much less calling/texting on their phones, they give an unlimited amount of what people dont use, and a puny amount of what people do use.

Give punters 20GB, along with 200 mins & texts for £20 a month and people will snap their arms off to sign up.

Brit 4G live TODAY: At last you can bust your data cap in 5 minutes

Nathan 13

A reasonable priceplan

£35pm for a new top of the line phone, unlimited minutes/texts and 10GB of data.

SIM only £20pm for the same.

I currently use about 5GB a months in total on my Galaxy S3, and dont stream, youtube or watch Iplayer etc

500MB is such a ridiculously low limit that EE must have a complete fool in charge of their tariff setting.

HTC profits lobbed off a cliff by rivals Samsung and Apple

Nathan 13

Only Apple

Can get away with a non-removable battery and lack of external storage. HTC thought they could get away with it and I believe it has cost them dearly on their flagship products.

The problem is

Skype launches in-call ads

Nathan 13

Ads

Im sure the "ads" will just be a banner on the bottom of the dialer screen, rather than actually interrupting the call for 30 seconds.

If it is the latter they will lose their user base quicker than the speed of light!!
