O2 Coverage Obligations
O2 is obliged to provide a mobile broadband service for indoor reception to at least 98% of the UK population (expected to cover at least 99% when outdoors) and at least 95% of the population of each of the UK nations England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales – by the end of 2017 at the latest.
They can barley meet 3G coverage obligations without Ofcom being on their case! Plus they have the least spectrum so may suffer congestion issues unless they are careful with how they plan their coverage.
iPhone 5 not compatible with UK 800MHz band
The iPhone 5 will not work on 800MHz (LTE Band 20) which the UK will use. So you will all have to go out and buy the iPhone 5S or failing that the iPhone 6.
Re: S3 not exempt
"At what point does it become not worth trading in the US?"
Thats exactly what Apple want. The market all to themselves. They have seen Samsung errode their market share and are keen to stop it though legal action.
Bet Vodafone, O2 and 3 will be calling their lawyers in an attempt to delay this.....
That is Apples the plan to get rid of sims. Seriously!
Whatever Ofcom decides I'm sure the Networks Lawyers will be kept busy.
Its heresy! We should stone Tim Cook to death for this! Saint Steve will be turning in his grave.
At the end of the day....
At the end of the day Apple will do whatever they want even if ETSI don't approve.
Against the 10 Commandments
Saint Steve will be turning in his grave if this is true. Saint Steve said increasing the screen size of the iPhone would lead to a 'fragmented' iOS experience.
Someone will burn in Hell for this!!!
Fast Get Faster - Slow Stay Slow
No surprise that places already served with high speed broadband get an ever faster services whilst the rest can just crawl along forever......
Apple to pay dividend and buy back shares
Apple has said it will use its cash to start paying a dividend to shareholders and to buy back some of its shares.
"More worryingly, 31 per cent said they were particularly looking forward to using the 4G networking on the iPad - despite the fact that they will never be able to do so in the UK."
Sounds about right for the Apple flock mentality.
This Is War
If we don't end war, war will end us. H. G. Wells
Class number plate I spotted last week was Y2 CUM and SUC 808Y (suck bobby) is another one ive seen!
Apple could have become a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) like Virgin, Tesco or Asda mobile etc. They could use the name iMobile (they probably have the right to it anyway)
Its a Holy War!
The Book Of Jobs says "I'm going to destroy Android, because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go thermonuclear war on this."
The Holy book says so so rise up fanbois and destroy all Android products especially ones from Samsung and HTC! This is a Holy war. Our glorious leader has commanded it : "I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple's $40 billion [£25bn] in the bank, to right this wrong."
Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson is available at from our Church (the iTunes Store)
No where did I leave my straight jacket lol!
Better late than never....
Well yesterday Ofcom finally caught up with Talk Talk / Tiscali after 10 years and fined them £3 Million. Must be the weather for it.
Greed is good
Maybe Mercedes Benz should sue all other car manufactures for infringing their Intellectual Properties. After all Karl Benz is regarded to have invented the car as we know it today.
Apple just want to protect their market share and huge profit margins. Apple have more cash the the USA Treasury Department with $76.4 Billion. Greed is good.
Hasta La Vista
Windows Vista Home - Mainstream Support ends in less than a year on 10th April 2012 and Extended Support is not available. So never mind killing Vista SP1 they are killing of Vista completely.
Sleeping on the job
Microsoft's development of their Windows Mobile platform was abysmal and half hearted at best. They are trying to play catchup by doing some actual work on Windows Phone 7 rather than letting it wither away like they did with Windows Mobile. Nokia have been resting on their laurels for years thinking past glory's will keep them alive. Much like Motorola and look where they are now.
Better late than never....
At least Microsoft are doing updates for Windows Phone 7. Unlike Windows Mobile users who were just left to suffer the OS it was shipped with :(
Microsoft should have been ahead of the game but they squander it all and are left playing catch up.

Rule 144: There's nothing wrong with charity ... as long as it winds up in your pocket.
For all you wondering how they can tell:
All IP packets have something called a TTL associated with them. It stands for Time To Live. Every "hop" along the network from one router to the next reduces the TTL by one. When it reaches 0, the packet is dropped. This was introduced to keep routing problems from overloading the network. If for example, by some error a packet was going around in a circular path, the TTL would eventually reach 0 and prevent a packet storm.
The thing is, ALL routing devices do this. OSes use standard TTLs. For example, let's say both your iPhone and laptop use 127 for the TTL. AT&T will receive packets from your iPhone with a TTL of 127, but since the packets from your laptop pass through your iPhone first, they arrive at AT&T with a TTL of 126. They can detect a tethered device this way.
Apple uses a TTL of 64 for the iPhone, by the way. So change the TTL on your computer to "65" and there should be no problem. Here's how to do it:
1. Click Start - Search and type “regedit”. This launches the WIndows Registry.
2. In the registry, navigate to the following registry key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters] HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
3. In the right pane, right-click and select New – DWORD (32-bit value) and set its name as “DefaultTTL” and set its value anything between “0? and “255?. The value sets the number of Hops or links the packet traverses before being discarded.
Kudos to Ryan Laster1. I don't have an iPhone to test this.
You could sell Apple fanbois a steaming pile of turd fresh out of Steve Jobs arse and they would buy it in their masses!
Ive seen quite a few cars with the VIN number displayed on the car window (bottom of the front window usually). If Ford do this then they might as well have a big steal me sign!
I bought a special edition which had DVD and Blu-ray packaged together last year. I tried it on a friend's Blu-ray player and noticed there was very little difference between the DVD and Blu-ray. The BBlu-ray was only marginally better.
Unfinished and late to market OS with promised features missing. Reminds me of Vista!
"As nobody is going to buy a handset that is missing the most basic of operating system features, such as Copy-Paste and full multitasking."
Early versions of the iPhone didn't allow you to that but it never stopped mases of mugs.... sorry fanbios from going out and buying it anyway PMSL!
