It's pretty clear it's 1 million in Virgin Media's latest press release, which is where this story comes from.
"The ultrafast broadband provider will connect fibre to the premise (FTTP) to at least a quarter of the 4 million additional homes and businesses being added to the Virgin Media network, as part of its ‘Project Lightning’ expansion plans."
Virgin Media have being doing full fibre network expansion in some areas since 2014.
The figure being quoted is an expansion of that FTTP install method to 1 million properties not currently connected.
Yes, you can now have the app on multiple devices. I've got it on my phone and WiFi only tablet.
That's not actually true any more. They changed the app recently to make it possible to pay up to £250 per day via the Mobile app without the reader. For some reason.
The exclusion of tethering for Feel at Home is on the main page for it http://www.three.co.uk/Discover/Phones/Feel_At_Home
Although they seem to have have change the 'fair usage' limit from 25GB to 12GB since I signed up to Three in June!
It's not the same. VoWiFi from EE doesn't require a separate app - it just works and you can use calls and texts as if you were connected to a mobile mast.
With the Three app, you have to have the app running and depending on what it decides to do your text messages will only appear in the app and not in your normal messaging app.
The upside of the Three version is that it's available on more phones than EE's way of doing it
Virgin definitely do allow TV on it's own http://store.virginmedia.com/digital-tv/compare-tv/index.html
No Virgin Phone line
12 month contract
Depending who you are with and what plan you are on, it's not always possible to tether via your phone.
Depends whether you mean just the brand, or the VW group.
The current Seat Leon has had full LED headlights available an an option since it's 2012 launch, and which currently seem to be added as a permanent offer.
Full details on what management in place is at www.virginmedia.com/traffic including specific details of the upload trigger thresholds
It's definitely expansion, and it's something they've been doing for a while now
However previously, I think it was spread around the country, rather than a single area.
Sony have been at it a while too
Pretty sure no matter what it's own colour by the absence of a light being shone on a wall, you will perceive it as black.
The issue is whether you can keep light 'leaking' out from those areas you do want to project onto, to those areas you don't
Re the traffic mananagement - I can't see that it will. The current management is being reduced to no more than 16% off the downstream speed.
So if 152Mb follows that you'll always get at least 127.68Mb even when managed.
The traffic management is being changed to be at most a 16% reduction for the downstream speeds (for those on 30Mbit and above). So 120Mbit will be reduced at most by management to 100.8Mbit
There isn't going to be another price rise for broadband only customers, that price rise was the one in October
Standalone broadband customers won't be getting another price rise in February - as the price change for that was in October
So, it has a touch screen.
1) What happens if it gets wet - unless these are for inside only or we going back to those slide covers.
2) What happens if I've got gloves on
3) What happens if I have reduced vision or am blind - there is no tactile feedback for where the buttons are
I'm all for touchscreens, where appropriate, but buttons work for a reason.
"One reason is weak integration with social networks: the photo app doesn't offer a share to Twitter or share to Facebook option until those apps are installed."
As far as I'm concerned that's the app done right, and isn't a Samsung failing. The 'Share' function is part of Android, and relies on apps telling it you can share via them - meaning you can't share via an app that isn't installed.
Much better than baking in sharing options that may/will stop working when the social network either changes it's API or disappears.
If you are going to review a phone, at least understand why it does things, and who is responsible.
P.S If i'm talking rubbish, happy to be corrected
Logitech probably aren't going to making any more, as they are current looking to sell the remote business off http://www.engadget.com/2013/01/23/logitech-q3-earnings-selling-harmony-remotes/
UK spec does mention the SD Card
Although that then doesn't mention Gigabit (which the chipset supports). How HP can't get a full spec list together for all their sites is beyond me
According to the specs here http://h20386.www2.hp.com/UKStore/Merch/product.aspx?sel=PCNB&id=C1S38EA&opt=ABU
it has a 500GB Hard Drive AND a 32GB SSD
It wouldn't change anything
Customer data would still fall under UK Data Protection Law. The Patriot act wouldn't apply as the company that runs cable in the UK would be a UK Limited company, even if it was owned by a US one.
Id' expect the same as is true for any other US company such as Amazon, Netflix and others that operate in the UK
Yeah that's great for text, but unless app development has improved, it's likely that quite a few Windows based apps break will you do this.
I've seen programs where dialogue boxes and pop ups are impossible to do anything with it as the buttons have been pushed out of the fixed size window due to increased text percentage on Vista / 7.
Apple have the right idea when it comes to the high res screens, why can't Windows do the same?
Don't think it's got anything to do with the video format
Google have got a syndication policy which allows some channels to restrict where the videos are available http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en-GB&answer=2453875
The email you get will be very small as the 'attachment' is in Drive, not in the email
You can give access to 5 additional users, and set an appropriate viewing age restriction for each one, but they would have to access it via one of the 2 registered devices
That survey said it overtook on Smartphones, but doesn't mention iPads and iPods, which can also run the TV Anywhere app
According to this page, iOS is still bigger than Android when looked at across all devices http://www.complush.com/android-vs-ios-in-market-competitive/
The really odd thing is that in the UK, Cisco makes the hardware for the Virgin Media:TiVo boxes (although Samsung have recently been brought in as another supplier).
You would have thought if Cisco had that much of an issue with TiVo, they wouldn't haven't done so.
"After that, full internet access will be available to customers of Virgin Media and selected networks, as well as on a Pay As You Go basis."
Because the mobile networks didn't want to do it http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/04/01/tube_ditches_mobile_plan/
I assume this is on the Orange side of the network, as I was under the impression that T-Mobile has already done it? I get the H+ symbol on SGS II when I'm on the T-Mobile network
Or am I getting confused with something else?
Samsung also making some of their TVs upgradeable by allowing a customer to swap out the 'brains' of the TV for a newer version
Saves having to ditch the whole TV.
It's only the browser flash plugin that's being stopped. Adobe are continuing with AIR so standalone Flash based apps - like the iPlayer app - will still exist
As far as I can tell the Paypal app also hooks into Bump (if installed) for those phones without NFC
This is hardly news
The Ocado app has been able to do this for ages now.
And has an Android version as well - which also has a voice search built into it
re: MS Malware Development Kit - IE9
As far as I can see all it does is;
1) A better taskbar icon
2) Some button colour changes to pick up the favicon colour
3) Some Jumplist options specified in HTML
There is nothing to say the the site itself operates outside of the browser or it's security model.
I'm assuming that other H.264 videos play without turning on the fan because they are already Hardware Accelerated?
The update allows Flash to do the same, so makes it perform the same
Yes the Samsung is available free on contract, but not the same contract.
For instance on T-Mobile you can get the Wildfire free on a £20 a month deal. To get the Galaxy S you have pay £35 a month.
Over 24 months thats a significant difference in price (£360), which some people won't want or need to pay if the Wildfire suits their needs
that's have a go at them for using a stock photo AND have a go at them for taking one themselves
"Their cards will become invalid one month after the Identity Documents Bill gains Royal Assent, to allow owners to fulfil travel plans. Shortly after the National Identity Register will be destroyed."
I was in Newcastle the other day and they have got barcode readers on the barriers there.
Also Virgin Trains online printed tickets already have 2D barcodes on
I wish that someone would notice that you don't need the high end versions of Windows 7 to run 'XP Mode'
XP Mode is two seperate bits. The first, which is the latest version of Virtual PC will install on all versions of Windows 7.
The only reason you need Professional, Enterprise or Ulimate is to get the licence for the Windows XP that is in 'XP Mode' OS image
So if you can provide the XP OS install yourself - then you can do 'XP mode' yourself.
I've done this on Home Premium and it works exactly the same - seamless intergration and everything
I've just found this on the bottom of another article
"However, there is nothing to suggest any of the websites are illegal.
Illegal pornographic websites include those where children are involved."
I mean just WTF are they on?!
All I get when I try to access anything through the BeebPlayer is 'Not yet available'
Bang goes the unofficial iplayer app for Android then :(
