Some of the pubs are awful, there's one in Woburn Sands that's a part time pizza parlour, my local is a tip. Free wifi is one thing, but they need to sort there premises out first

Garmin & Navteq

I have what purports to be a top of the range Garmin unit, its worse that my old and much lamented BM6300, however it does use the same mapping agency, I notified them of a error 10 years ago, this, like the correspondent above, has not been corrected, despite receiving an acknowledgement.

It fails to zoom in at slow speed (despite having auto enabled), the Navteq maps have junction errors too numerous to mention, for goodness sake, they could use Streetview to sort that out, I wish I had put the money towards a better and larger smartphone and use that instead.

If only social networking was the problem

One cannot email the DWP, much less send them a PDF document, these people are so far behind I cannot see how they are ever going to catch up.

Compatability

Not available on a Wildfire, as are so many of these recommended apps, I think more work is required on this feature to make it relevant to a greater number of readers

Police chief: Yes, my plods sometimes forget photo laws

Colonel Mad

Shortcomings

The Police are lacking in training, have poor discipline and abysmal leadership, that is the reason for this and many other problems faced by law abiding citizens.

Digital River makes total hash of Windows 7 upgrade offer

Yes Ok But

I followed the advice about turning the dowloaded file into an iso and got Win 7 64 installed and then set about sticking all my other programmes in, I got nearly all the way when I stared to notice messages like," Hi you've just about got enough space to install Adobe reader 999.4 on this partition," what! a whole 85 GB. It had kept all three dowloads I had done, plus the iso and Old win at 35 gb, plus a whole bunch of other stuff, talk about a 'clean' install

Pass the sick bag

I can't imagine what got stuck in Apples craw, this was puffery of the highest order, Appleyard clearly thinks that everyone at Apple walks on water.
