Re: Simpler solution than developing seek-and-destroy software

You have to pay Murcdoch and his cronies to see the content and there, my friend, is the difference.

All I can say is if footy fans are outraged at this, stop buying the Sun et al...please....pretty please.

Actually you are right to a degree, but found there is no need to go to this extreme.

Simply disconnect mobile data and hey presto those voice calls work much better.

It's often caused by the phone desperately trying to use 3g, even when the signal is congested (bars make no difference)

We can see this in action in out office all the time. in the day, it flaps between edge and 3g and 2g.

At night, same office, rock solid (and fast-ish) 3g.

So you may get the "signal", but using it is a waste of time.

Would you be happy to withdraw a few hundred pounds from a cash point and walk around with it in your hands in a busy crowded area, pop it on a table whilst you a coffee,pop it in pocket or bag with a little cable with a note saying free cash at the end. The, at night, wave it around whilst pointing a torch at it.

General answer would be no, I wouldn't be that stupid.

"More on the washing machine: hands up who knows what all the settings do? Really, all of them?"

Yes. Lets see Duvet for Duvets, Baby, for nappies etc, Whites for whites, economy for economy, quick wash for quick wash. Oh and the £20 added for the repair man, will just be replaced by the £20 added for all the tech required. Oh and how about the millions of people that won't hook it up, will that suddenly go away? Or do you propose it is mandatory?

"Freezer: when the power goes off, it has an alarm. When I'm in the kitchen some hours later, I'll know that £100 of food went to waste."

If your food defrosts in a few hours in a freezer, you need a better freezer, ffs 24 hours and it should still be pretty good.! Oh and all the flashing lights on the digital clock should tell you about the power outage. And when it alerts you of a power outage (by bluetooth??????? how long a range does that have!) when you are 50 miles away, what are you going to do, race back home and put it errrrrrrrr.

Seriously, we have survived for millennia without it, I doubt we will al suddenly drop dead if we don't get it now. It's just a fad

And BTW, if US hadn't copied Jet engine and rocket engine tech, they would still be in boats. If Japan hadn't ripped off western tech, we'd still have music players the size of toasters around our necks; if we hadn't ripped off Japans tech, our cars would still break down every hundred miles and never start on cold mornings.
