Re: No announcement of the problem

Maybe they don't have 24/7/365 twitter writers, maybe it was their day off and they were using Facebook instead, or maybe Google+, or even a blog, heck maybe they shared some photo's in Pinterest whilst syncing it with their Flickr accounts ...who knows.

" the option to install applications from non signed sources. "?

I guess you mean "installation...other than play store" and by that that you may mean anyone that want to download from say, Amazon?

Re: "impair the quality of internet access services"

Net Neutrality isn't really about if voice or video have bandwidth priority over email, it's all about content of the same type and how it's delivered.

Scenario A

Google (YouTube) say, if you get a stream from YouTube and another from iPlayer, if you give us priority, we'll bung you £50million a year.

Scenario B

Sky Broadband give top priority to any Murdoch owned site over others and even throttle those of rivals.

.

So it's not about what you speed up / slow down, but WHO you speed up / slow down.

German frau reports for liver transplant clutching bottle of vodka

Re: With that habit, the hospital could have arranged for her a special

Incorrect: From the NHS:

Additionally, a liver transplant will also not be offered if you are:

abusing alcohol – most transplant centres only consider a person for transplant if they have not had alcohol for at least three months

abusing drugs – most transplant centres would only consider a person for transplant if they attend a drug rehabilitation course and remain free from drugs for at least six months (some transplant centres will accept people who are currently taking the heroin substitute methadone)

SimpleAir wins patent suit against Google

Lost all faith...

Hmmm at 1st I'd say WTF, but it was applied for in 1999, about the same time "Wi-Fi" was founded. So yes it well may of been fairly unique back then, but it's so vague, it should of been struck down on that.

Re: Hang on a minute...

It is not just predictive text, it is also allows for error correction and put's the predictions in a separate area, not in an in-line drop down or type ahead.

Re: Argument seems illogical

I agree this argument makes little sense. Our UPS room is the size of a single persons office, provides about 5 minutes of power to a few hundreds stock servers, but we have a bloody great generator to kick in within about 30 seconds of power loss.

To me it seems more like, we didn't bother investing in them as we thought we were OK, so cut it from the budget.
