Did the house owner look through the bag? In that position, I certainly wouldn't. I wouldn't even touch it in case it destroyed forensic evidence.
Making the most money, yes
Selling more phones than any other handset maker, possibly. They will definitely be in the top three.
Selling more phones than the total number of Android phones from all handset makers, no.
For sell out events, yes
Yes, for sell out events the price will be higher, but for other events that don't sell out, the price will be lower, and all the seats will be sold.
Re: Who's writing the effing system?
HMRC will employ people to write their side of the system, but it will need to interface with employers' existing payroll software, and that is where the working together bit comes in.
I hope they do a better job than they did with xbrl for corporation tax returns, but I fear they will do a much worse job, not least because a typical company has one corporation tax return to file annually, and quite a few employees to file monthly or even weekly.
You don't need to file a P32, just pay the amount shown on it, and file it in case they want to inspect it. Santander BillPay handles the payment side of things and that is still up and running. However if you pay before the 5th of the month, they quite often allocate the payment to the previous month and send the dogs for non-payment of the current month.
Not so much the rates
Every year the rules about how to calculate your taxable income change, which means more or less boxes (usually more) on the tax return.
Yes it is
Because you can't file anything related to the tax year until after the tax year has ended.
I have a load of payroll stuff that was done on the Monday before the last Thursday in March in time to reach their bank accounts by the due date which I could file because I know there won't be any more payments this year, but HMRC don't see it that way, so I have to wait.
The Nokia 9000 communicator had web browsing facilities in 1996.
Because there is a specific exemtopn for cacheing. The Internet Archive operates under US law, but you can use your robots.txt to tell them not to copy your site.
Ripping CDs to your mp3 player is illegal.
However, if you buy music from itunes, you have permission from the copyright holder to use it on five different machines that you own (laptop, apple tv, ipod, etc), so that is legal.
Ah but ...
only O2 can give them the best experience. If the phone was unlocked, they might move to a different network, and that clearly would mean an inferior smartphone experience. They might for example have web pages load before they get a chance to look at the progress bar.
Re House in developing country
A house in a developing country has, for these purposes, a single 2W LED bulb, and a mobile phone charger.
Scotland has its own Census on 27th March which you can find here - http://www.scotlandscensus.gov.uk/ . The fact that the English Census Man is only talking about the one in England and Wales doesn't help you.
Then don't complain
If your local hospital, doctor etc gets shut down because they think nobody lives there.
Re: Wasn't using FF
IE9 isn't supported either.
I have 5 browsers on my machine - IE9, FF4, Chrome 10, Safari 5 and Opera 11. Seemingly none of those are supported by Santander. It appears that "in the interests of security", I am required to downgrade to a browser that accepts fake Comodo security certificates.
One thing that really really annoys me
Why do these articles add up all the prison sentences to come up with a completely meaningless figure. Nobody is going to prison for 37.5 years. They have been sentenced to between 7 and 9 years, so will be out of jail in between 3.5 and 4.5 years time.
As their money is safely offshore, they will earn about £7m each for each of the years they spend in prison, which I guess will soften the pain just a little.
I agree. Either show the amount of beer you can get for say €10 each year, or have a pile of coins to display the cost.
Re: any OS
FreeDos is mainly a bootstrap loader for bare metal industrial control software. It would probably be an ideal computer for operating a CNC machine or similar, if you can find the relevant USB adapters for things like a parallel or serial port and get them to work.
ACS Law, as a result of their misrepresentation, induced them to settle with someone who isn't actually the copyright holder. While they presumably did copy the works in question, as a result of them settling with the wrong person, they are still open to action from the legitimate copyright holder.
The fact that the case wasn't brought by the copyright holder was part of the reason why it failed.
There was discussion last time this came up about whether the copyright holder should be joined in the action. I'm not sure what happened, but no doubt the court papers will tell us.
ACS law is the second incarnation. He did try a third incarnation, but that was shot down pretty rapidly. Given how badly this has failed, and the publicity generated, he would need to substantially change tactics before trying again.
Re: Why so long?
Well, how long has MS Security Essentials and Forefront been dealing with it? The malicious software removal tool is not a replacement for anti-virus.
yes it is
It is contaminated with sea water, which is a problem if you want to turn the power station back on again.
I had that problem
It seems to be related to language packs. I uninstalled all the language packs, installed SP1, then reinstalled them.
Samsung India said at one point that they would release Gingerbeard[sic] and then withdrew the statement. I think that means they won't.
Yes it is
The important bit here is "personal service company".
In tax legislation, a personal service company company is not a company that provides services of a personal nature as you might expect, it is a company that provides services which are effectively those of an employee.
Re: IR35 not understood
You pay yourself a salary of £6545, which attracts a small amount of NI. That gives you your NI related benefits, and also uses up your tax free personal allowance. If you have a non-working husband, wife, civil partner etc, you can also pay them a salary of £6545. You then pay corporation tax at 21% on the remaining profits up to £300k.
You can then pay dividends tax free up to the top of the basic rate band for you and any spouse. If you wish to pay money into a pension, you can do so, and that is a deduction from your profits for corporation tax purposes, but you have to pay tax on your pension when you receive it.
Once you get into the higher rate, you have to pay tax on any dividends on top of the corporation tax, and that works out about the same as tax and employee NI on a salary, but you still save the employer's NI.
You can leave surplus money in the company bank account and only pay corporation tax, not income tax on dividends, and then draw it out as a dividend in a later year when your income is lower.
I bought my Samsung Galaxy S in November 2010, and they stopped doing updates for it in December when the the Nexus S came out. You can still get the Galaxy S in Carphone Warehouse now and elsewhere now.
Re: Actually not
Nowhere near it
The Tobacco Manufacturers Association claims that total tax revenue from tobacco is £10.5bn
The NHS Budget is £119bn
Is this any different from the current ability to bookmark a website?
Re: is that business
I run Windows and Open SuSE servers. Both just work, but I find the SuSE ones need a lot less attention than the Windows ones and take up a lot less of my time. They probably need a bit more knowledge to get started, but once you know what you are doing, you can ssh in and administer things much more quickly using the command line than you can with the nice easy-to-use graphical tools that Microsoft provides over rdp. Of course SuSE provides the nice easy-to-use graphical tools as well and you can use them over nx.
Women are more likely to have accidents, however, men have more expensive accidents.
A typical women driver accident is scraping a load of neighbouring cars while trying to park, which will cause hundreds or maybe low thousands of pounds of damage.
A typical boy racer accident is a 100+mph head-on collision on the wrong side of the road while overtaking, which means two or three completely written off cars, medical bills and so on - claim cost will be high tens or low hundreds of thousands.
If you have already saved up some money in a pension, then your options when you get to retirement are limited. Drawdown is an alternative to an annuity, but only if you have a very large fund.
But not that simple
Windows is a generic term for a glazed hole in the wall that lets light in. It is not a generic term for anything to do with computers.
App store however is a generic term in the same way that fruit monger is as a shop where you can buy certain types of product.
Certainly from my experience of them, they seem to know their stuff. The one who fixed my MacBook was quite young, I believe just out of uni, but he knew what he was doing. Certainly miles better than anyone at PC World.
No they won't
Sheila's wheels do provide quotes for men, if you can cope with their lurid pink website.
They quoted me £512.72. If I had a sex change operation then I would only pay £412.12.
Banco Santander charge me £377.55 as a man, so I think I will pass on it.
Re: Oxford Circus
The main benefit of the X-crossing as a pedestrian is that the pavement nearby is no longer so over crowded. IMO it is a big improvement over what was there before.
Re: No brainer
The police will argue that they need to shut down the website quickly. If for example there is a website with a similar name to an official outlet selling fake concert tickets, they can't afford to wait for a few months for the court to grant a shut-down order, because by then they have done their damage and moved onto the next one.
Re: Market share
Unfortunately they are the no. 2 email provider with 25% of the market, just behind the market leader Yahoo which has 26%.
Changing email provider means telling everyone your new email address and persuading them to use it. That can be a bit of a pain which is why a lot of people still use hotmail.
