Remeber the slap on the wirsts from the ASA?
"'Now from Virgin Media, you could say goodbye to buffering with superfast fibre-optic broadband' "
Their defence was:
"Virgin Media had defended the ad by stating that the term "buffering" had a less technical meaning for punters who, it claimed, often link it to service interruptions or delays in streaming content. The telco also stated that, by using the word "could", the advert was clearly "conditional"."
Here Jayne, is Stewart over in the fayre

Re: @Bill re: VOTE!
You say Maggie was a leader. The issue is that she deliberately employed yes men who would not disagree, so you end up with not a leader, but a dictator by proxy.
If she had some people brave enough to say, "actually, that is a STUPID idea "(an issue still around today), then much of the shit that goes on wouldn't happen.
You want change?
BAN parties. Give the elected a free vote in ALL matters, instead of this utterly pointless towing the line.
If where I live the majority want to allow fox hunting say, then my MP should say so and vote so, not just toe the party line. My voice should NOT be overruled by the 11% of MP's that form the London mob, after all I doubt any of them have even heard of where I live, let alone know what affect me.
Re: Verifying the source of the data
American developed "standards" are what got us here in the first place.
Korea's Anyang University, China's Tongji and Tsinghua Universities, the University of Basel (Switzerland) and Japan's Waseda University are also aboard the effort.
Huwawei are Chinese
Alcatel-lucent are French.
Note to self. Leave thread for 2 minutes. Proof read.
NetBEUI wasn't not MS so no idea why you are singling them out they just supported it. It was an IBM job.
NWLink was a way of getting Windows to talk to Novells interpretation of IPX/SPX. The clue is in the name NetWareLINK. It actually did this pretty well. heck it was often easier to get MS kit talking to Novell kit than it was getting Novell talking to Novell.
I guess you see the word Microsoft and the steam just starts billowing out of your ears.
Re: Anyone remember the OSI protocols?
The difference here is you have some massive heavyweights in the form of Cisco, Intel, Huawei, Acatel-Lucent and Qualcom in there. That is pretty much most of the networking market leaders right there.
Re: Internet Exploder
Of course Chrome and Firefox don't patch, they "update" theirs
There is the sound of it going right over your head.
Try Watermarks? Pictures tend not to look to good with a ruddy great copyright all over them, you never now, if people really like the original, they may buy it.
Or Robots.txt? Heard of it?
Maybe Bing should just admit it's a bad thing and kill all links to Getty for image searches.
Re: Where's Radeon?
I'm sorry, are you suggesting they employed some common sense? Shouldn't they both be prosecuted for that?
Cross Licensing is hugely common, AMD license, Intel; Intel license AMD, MS license Apple, Apple License MS. Samsung license "Nokia", Nokia license "Samsung".
It's only when one doesn't cough up that the sue balls start. It's only the IP trolls that don't do this, they want you money for nothing in return.
Who would of thought it....
...I'm more interested in the cup than the next big storage method.
Re: I picture...
Not really, I was thrashing out a design the other week with some techs from another and we were often drawing at the same time on an old fashioned flip chart..
...hopefully replaces interactive whiteboards which are utter PITA.
Re: ' When we chose Cairo, we were aware of their power problems
My question to the reg reader....

So no onsite UPS with generator back up? I guess that's now in budget then?
Re: Morals, ethics, principles... Yes ... I mean it is just another example of Russian Fascism.
Ot where Al-Assad was the Prince of Darkness, but we are now having to kiss ass because in the grand scheme of things, he wasn't as bad as the shit storm we allowed to happen

Ah you work in the same company as me then?
Re: Open software
although to be completely fair, I don't think anyone understands communism..
Pah, wait until you try to explain anarchism,
Re: 6oog1e's own
Please, can people just write Google, Microsoft and Apple.
It's not edgy, it just makes you look like a 10 year old kid trying to be with the "cool" teenagers on 4chan.
Don't defend the National Gallery, they are peado's!
I searched for paintings that may be stolen by pirating and was left traumatised.
Javid is defending a bunch of sick perverts, he must resign or go to prison!!!!!
Re: Here's an idea....
"How much more money do you want to spend on schemes trying to distract the feckless and where will it come from?"
Take the money of detaining one young offender for 1 year.
Now look at the price of running a youth club for a year, that takes 100+ kids off the street.
You may be surprised.
And it does work. The one I help run reduced the Anti social reports from 50+ in 1 year, to 0, that's right..ZERO.
The flip side, we no longer have a community support officer..
Here's an idea....
...trying funding crime prevention a little more, not crime detection. Crazy eh?
Y'now, those useless money eating things like, youth clubs, sports clubs, rehab clinics, homeless shelters, debt advice agency's, sure start centres, intervention teams, social services, adult education services, apprenticeship schemes.
Still harder to get a pie chart saying "we may of stopped 10,000 criminals" instead of "we locked up 1,000".
Ah but they didn't used Password
....no no no...they used Oscars
Re: Alternatively ...
So Google will pay the couple of trillion to relocate all the power and phone lines underground then?
You've got it all wrong....
...as you pointed out, it will need 3d mapping.
Google: Can we fly drones.
US Gov. No, not without at least 3D mapping as a starting point.

Public...WTF are you doing taking photos of me in the bath on the 14th floor?
Google. The government told us to do it.
Re: Interesting form of words
Do Google and everyone else seek it when they film private property? Nope thought not.
What comes around....
Re: An example to follow
Apps that exhibit bugs will be rejected
*cough* Apple maps *cough*
If your app doesn't offer much functionality or content, or only applies to a small niche market, it may not be approved.
Fart apps and torches clearly are the way forward then.
Re: In all the possible ways Mozilla are mindlessly following everything Googly...
And, all the Market has done with it is to just sit on its Thumbs!
Maybe on the consumer side there may be less (but there is plenty) but certainly there is plenty of 64bit only software in the big boys world.
Re: whats Chromium?
By special you mean all the phone home stuff installed?
This is NOTHING new
Networking and PBX gear has done this for DECADES. You buy a license and it unlocks the disabled features.
I guess you've never used freeware either?
Often, it's because it requires a license for a propriety bit of software, often it's just to screw you over.
This is NOTHING new.
Actually it shoud read
"We learn today that WE have NO DISASTER RECOVERY PLAN "
DDoS is not hacking. it's pushing a key to take control of a botnet.
If you want a good rant....
Neither are under EE's control.
Re: Billing issues.
It is now an offence for ANY customer services* in the UK to only offer 08 numbers. The are now legally required to offer either a geographic number or and 03 number.
* excludes helplines, for example fixing a pc fault, business to business communications and some others. It does not affect sales and pre-sales lines.
4 down votes for pointing out Google's core business model?
The Googlebots must have this site targeted....
Dyslexia....the word in itself is a test that you may have it.
Re: Are there any browser that just browse?
Not Chrome, Iron...
That's a new one...sounds like something was being battled behind closed doors.
Did you read the article? I think you are getting your intelligence agencies mixed up.
About the uSB ports sticking out...
...that's what you want, it means that fit flush with any case you have.
...so much for always buying genuine parts as counterfeit goods are dangerous.
I've often bought 3rd party cables (not cheap 99p ones) and found them to be a lot better than the manufacturer shipped stuff.
Re: Re "which could potentially bypass missile defences"
Check out the DF-21D.
Reported speeds of Mach 10, so in theory, US could launch, China then can respond and hit the US target before the US hits them*
*range is *only* 1500km to 2700km dependant on who you believe.
Still at least she had more brains than "turn off all services" suggestions i.e. turn it into a £10 dumb phone.
It is a "proper" OS
"including a lack of research funds and too many developers pulling in different directions"
If that doesn't PROVE it's met most of the criteria for an IT project, I don't know what will. All it needs to be perfect is it to be is abandoned at the last minute and a new project to take over.
"Loss of unencrypted back-up disk costs UK prisons ministry £180K"
Let me fix
"Loss of unencrypted back-up disk costs tax payers £180K, in bureaucratic money laundering scheme."
The wrist computer market has grown by almost 700 per cent this year
Go to love those stats.
Does that mean they've sold 7 or 7 billion?
God I despise these "analysts"
Re: Booth babes
But isn't this part of the issue?
Why even bother to employ the booth babes in the 1st place? Surely it's just pandering to the "girls are to look good, boys are the ones you need to talk to" mentality.
Seriously if you can't sell your product without a 6ft blonde in hot pants, then look at your product.
IGNORANCE OF THE LAW IS NO EXCUSE!
You know the law (technically Acts of Parliament, but lets not be picky), all 73,000+ in Engalnd, so what's you excuse for not being ignorant?
