"UK universities are not exactly awash with spare cash"
Clearly you've not heard of the Russell Group.
Re: So, exactly what we all expected then.
Sorry I disagree, 8 on Winphone is WAY better than 7. Not tried 10, waiting for it to settle down.
Re: Could have been a winner...
Yes then I could own it by sending it a MMS.
Re: ,or never,
My cheap as chips Winphone got updated (no not to 10) last night. Not just a bug fix either as my 4G has gone from 30mbs download to 89...yippeee.
3rd major update in a year.
My Samsung droid....well if I get off 4.0, I'll let you know.
Why do people pay these people
They just make shit up and on the most gullible directors and media buy their bollocks.
Yes but it's hosted on Azure and you're seeing cached content...
Your right, we folks in Telecoms are allowed almost 6 minutes a year.
Re: School IT .....
but it's in the cloud, therefore they no longer need IT.
One had triggered 54,489 notifications in 60 days. Each notification was alleged to have been passed on to Cox.
Well anyone hitting our emails servers that fast are likely to be blacklisted very, very quickly. Did anyone check the spam folder?
Thanks for the info/
Re: Symbain beats WinMobile
Well going by the fact that so many sites incorrectly detect my Winmobe as Android or occasional iPhone, it's not surprising.
In the old days...
...given the choice of paying 70 or 80 quid to upgrade an oldish pc, then people may of gone, stuff it, I may as well pay a "bit" more and buy a new one.
Now you can upgrade for free, people are going, I'll upgrade and keep my old pc for another couple of years.
.I mean you haven't been able to download 32 versions of Linux for over a decade now...wait! What?
It's still available for downloaded and supported?
But...it's MS that are evil for killing off software after only 5 years after EoL
...we can't be arsed to extend our network, therefore no-one else should.
Re: Well doh!
What? Apart from the gibberish that I struggled to read:
"personally I think car manufacturers, should look at making beautiful cars, and stop with the macho Bullshit, SUV's & Hot hatchbacks I'm looking at you !!!!!"
So what is an AC Cobra, E-type, Austin Healey 3000 and Ferrari 250 GTO? All could be classed a pretty, but also macho, due to their performance.
Is a Lancia Stratos OK, but not a Lancia Delta Integrale?
Where do you stand on an original Mini Cooper S?
Re: identity theft
But I tend not to write cheques to people in Nigeria.
And you can set up a direct debit using one.
It's not a fix.
As with ALL goods sold, it's what people are willing to pay.
A house it not worth £5,000,000, just for few bricks in an overcrowded, polluted place like London, but if people are willing to pay it, the that's how much it's costs.
If you don't like paying £10 for a razor blade, then don't. If everyone doesn't pay it, they have two choices, don't sell it, or reduce the price.
I'm afraid this is true for absolutely everything in life, but sometimes it's a life and death choice, so we are often "forced" to pay the going rate.
Re: It now costs more to plug your computer in than it does to own it.
Or in my case, simply power it off the USB port on the back of the telly it's plugged into.
Re: Best of all it don't run windows
"Dave, When you've finished singing the praises of Antitrust Bill's vanishing tiny refund from the GAZZZZEEEEEELIONS his vampire squid extorted from the planet, you should retroactively re-evaluate your apostrophe abuse protocols."
Try adding a comma after the word refund. It makes it so much easier to read, without the need for oxygen afterwards.
Opendesk CEO and co-founder, Tim Carrigan, said: "Our 'smart desk' will never be outdated, as the embedded technology is upgradable and customisable.
That is all.

"The big players can afford to program their own advertising platforms which the likes of U-Block, erc. can't block"
You mean you can't block Google (double click), one of the worlds largest?

I don't know 5 hard drives can hold a fair amount.

Re: Well done
FYI, people may not want to do a video search for Monica Bellucci scene at work (or even home), you could end with a meeting with HR or the other half.
Re: We joke at them...
"In this context, what does "our" mean?"
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Island's TV.
We joke at them...
...but compare our TV to say French TV and we look as prudish as the Indians.
Re: Censorship is weird
I may be wrong (sure someone can comment) but I believe US censorship is to do with paid and free to air TV, Paid for gets away with a lot, where as free to air only allows you to kill kids, not breast feed them.
I sure someone over there can clarify.
"I don't remember the NSA presenting it as an opt-in."
Opt-In? I thought to stop Google tracking you you had to explicitly say you din't want them to.
Re: Sounds good. But.
I "believe" it comes with an SD slot, but you'd be hard pressed to find it on their tech specs.
"Years back the postmark did reveal which postbox something was dropped in - don't know if that is still the case"
I would presume it's more related to the sorting office, not postbox, otherwise each one would have to have franking equipment installed.
"Future generations will regard the current crop of politicians as a 'bunch of mindless jerks...'
Nope, future generations are already programmed to reject all notions of privacy. It's the current generations that are a PITA for government.
Good nice to see they supply 5 9's for telephony, the carrier industry standard...Oh wait.

Re: They did their dash with me
They bought YouTube when it was very well established and would be almost impossible at that point for it to fail.
Re: CloudFlare harboring illegal activities
As a result, all our websites, clients and partners are blocking traffic to or from IP ranges belonging to CloudFlare such as 188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206.
You can't be blocking it that well, your most likely using it right now!
Re: CloudFlare harboring illegal activities
I guess you have no idea what a CDN is? Let me guess, you also block Akamai?
Re: Fair play to Prince
Sometimes they ask to keep sites up so they can see who are using them and track back.
Re: Can you say 'singularity'
This is the same firm that still does not 'Get' the internet other than jumping in with both feet to destroy privacy.
Re: Cortana can't help you.
Is France supported ? No.
Not hard is it? It took all of about 3 seconds to find the info.
I thought this was a tech site, yet search engines seem beyond most peoples grasp.

Re: These Days...
Mouse Issue example
Same in MINT
As par the course for Linux, had to resort to command line fixes. of course, due to the fact it thought I had a non-existent monitor, guess where the shell was coming up...so had to spend a hour finding that issue first.
Re: What 'app gap'?
especially if they work in a sector like..... music production, and will choose their platform accordingly.
That's Android out then. Timings are nigh on impossible to get right on Android due to the mish-mash of hardware and software.
