So, lets see if they have fixed the clusterfsck that became managing wireless profiles in Windows 8. Want to edit an existing wireless profile in GUI? Sorry, can't do that. Must delete and re-create it.
Will be interested to see if they fixed that in 10.
As for the camera? We've always thought that taking photos or videos with an iPad was, well, more than a wee bit silly.
The author has obviously not visited Asia.
Re: Stupid Big Media
Re: "Entitled" As far as I'm concerned, those of us who are in the UK should be 'entitled' to download and acquire BBC content. We paid the license fee that was used to create that content! The Box was great for finding obscure shows that are not available anywhere else.
The Box had a great community of users/cappers/uploaders that did a great job making a broad range of content available, a large amount of which cannot be found anywhere else.
One key difference between 8 and Vista
With Windows 8, the system seems to work very well 'under the bonnet'. It's just TIFKAM and the other UI changes that pose the main problem. While these interfaces arguably work quite well on touch-enabled devices, they don't work as well on the traditional desktop.
I think that if Microsoft gives users the option to keep the traditional UI elements, they will be on to a winner.
Re: Enta outage
The router will need to support IPv6 Prefix delegation to work with Enta. Unfortunately, there are a few companies, including Cisco, that advertise some of their products as being IPv6 compatible, when they are not fully compatible. IOS routers are fully compatible, however their non-IOS devices are a bit of a crapshoot. As far as the modem itself goes, the draytek vigor 120 should work with IPv6. I was unable to test IPv6 with it, as the router I had didn't support IPv6 PD.

I second your proposal

Re: The penalty for piracy should be...
How dare you be sensible, sir?
Sadly, that is better reliability than I have experienced with Seagate 3TB drives... I bought two, and by the time I finished returning, receiving replacement, and returning failed replacements too, I ended up with: 5 out of 6 drives failed. Two were DOA, while the other three each failed within a day of usage. On the fifth replacement, I gave up on Seagate and went for an alternative.

Re: TV licences aren't exactly compulsory.
As per the title. You can't truly call the TV licence a compulsory tax, don't have a
TV device capable of receiving a video signal, don't pay.
There, I fixed it for you.
Re: A few points for you all.....
"I loved its applications as it has as very specfic market which cannot be met by any other means...."
While this has been the case up till now, I think that 4g mobile Internet could provide a fairly cost-effective solution for many rural areas where land line coverage is poor or non-existent.
Re: Mostly reasonable
Exactly. The tools that we use for penetration testing would certainly qualify as "hacking software" As JustaKOS said, this really needs to be clarified to intent rather than simply possession.
Another Missed Apil Fools - SkyCMD
Microsoft thought they would have a go by adding a retro command-line interface for their skydrive service, named skycmd. It has its own website and yes it actually works.
Ci$co and IPv6
I have to call FAIL on the Ci$co's IPv6 support. Recently bought a RV220w which Ci$co claims supports IPv6, when the implementation does not actually support prefix delegation. This makes it impossible to obtain a native IPv6 address from our ISP.
If enterprise hardware companies like Cisco still don't fully support IPv6 properly, what hope do home and small/medium business users have?
//purchased Cisco router specifically for its (claimed) IPv6 support.
The U.S. does not have a legitimate claim against O'Dwyer.
It is not as if he went to the U.S., murdered someone while he was there and then returned back to the U.K. In a situation like that, extradition would be justified.
In this case, a student sets up and operates website in the U.K., where he lives. He is not an American citizen, has not been to the U.S. Therefore American laws don't apply. British law and only British law should apply.
On what basis does the U.S.gov think it should be able to enforce its laws on U.K. citizens living in the U.K? Surely, if O'Dwyer broke the law, he should be prosecuted in Britain, by a British court according to BRITISH law.
It is disgusting that this government is happy to ship British citizens to foreign countries that have no legitimate claim against the individual, and that individual has never set foot in that country.
Re: "litres per 100km"?
I'm all for metric, but can't we at least use the Japanese format, which is KM/L (Kilometers per litre). Thats much easier to quantify than L/100km.
"An instant message sent by your iBuddy will ping on your iPhone, your Mac and your iPad, if you have left those devices on. What's more, it will keep pinging away until you have explicitly opened and received the notes on each device individually."
Erm, No. At least that's not been my experience. When I read the iMessage on the mac, it (almost) immediately shows as read on the iphone and clears itself from the notification screen.
Daytime running lights, not foglights.
"To remind you that the car is in drive mode, the Leaf’s front fog-cum-running lights stay lit continuously when the car is switched on. Which is exactly what I told Greater Manchester plod when I was pulled over at a road check aimed at stopping people using their fog lamps for aesthetic reasons in times of good visibility."
All new cars type-approved in the E.U. from 2011 are required to have daytime running lights (DRLs). The police should know this and should not be stopping anyone for these lights being on. These lights must be functionally specific, and can not be piggybacked with other funcitons. (e.g. using the DRL light as a fog light)
Average speed in London
Those cameras will be a waste of time/space, as it is nearly impossibly to drive fast enough to get an average speed that is actually over the limit in London. I'd love to be able to have an average speed somewhere near the limit in central London. Saying that, if they remove those silly traffic calmings, then by all means, knock yourselves out TFL.
"Finally, RIPA's sanctions against interception only cover "intentional" snooping. The Directive does not allow for such a distinction."
Surely what Phorm does qualifies as "intentional snooping"
