Re: There are reasons why IT departments insist on particular applications...

yeah, has nothing to do with what app is best for user or best for the job but what is easiest for the IT team to rollout across their network automatically leaving them more time for quake online deathmatches

Why MS...

...surely it would be better to host our data on the NSA cloud directly rather than via MS?

'Real' vampires reluctant to 'come out of the coffin' to social workers – barmy prof

RISC OS

real vampires

seem to be goths too, just like lifestyle vampires... at least if youtube is to be believed.

Maybe the term vampire means something different to those that did the study, but to me it's a dead guy with fangs he drinks blood without a syringe, wears a red and black cape and can fly through the air or turn into a bat...I'd like to see some of these "real vampires" do this stuff.

Also I doubt that most "real vampires" exude the kind of sex appeal that dracula seem to have. Most seem to be lard arses or lady boys in drag.

I think in a pre-politically correct world they would be called psychos or freaks.

US SaaS firm bows to Snowden concerns with UK-based datacentre

RISC OS

The key phrase is this bit:

“When it’s here, they feel they can’t.”

They are giving you the feeling that your data is safe from prying yank eyes... their own words, not that your data is safe in europe from prying yank eyes.

Mozilla: We don't give a damn about cheap smartphones

RISC OS

I have a FF OS phone...

Alcatel one touch fire... for texts and phoning it is ok... but the apps suck balls, there are not enough of them. The other problem is that people write android and ios apps and let everyone else use a normal website. Which are FFOS apps... this sucks balls as most websites run badly on the phone. Mozilla's plan seemed to have hinged on everyone being willing to write a mobile version of their website... sadly that plan got ballsed up as no one seems to a have bothered. I use multicity car sharing from Citroen.... hardly small fry but even they only have an android and ios app... I get stuck with their desktop website that is completely unzoomable on such a low spec machine and completely unsable.

The only two apps I ever use are bbc news and the guardian... but as this is just a mobile version of their website it gets so bogged down with scripts and ajax loads that they just crash or you get asked if the tab should reload or just close... no "ignore the delay" option like on desktop FF... so half the websites with mobile frontends can never actually load as the hardware can't handle it... I could cry.

I won't be getting another one... I feel like someone who is using an OSS alternative to skype looks nice but completely pointless for chatting as everyone else is using skype and has no reason to swap.

Now I have received, about 8 months ago, an update... it broke shit loads of things... the apps crash every few minutes, there are huge memory leaks which means I have to restart the phone again - often, I now can't uninstall apps, the list goes on... and now no more updates... who knows when I will get another.

I tried a few apps and basically they are just experiments by bored web devs to see if they should bother making a FFOS version of stuff... some even require features that the phones from Mozilla don't have as they are low spec... I guess the devs were using some kind of geeksphone which came with better hardware.

Google opens 'Inbox' heir-to-email trial to biz users

RISC OS

What it practically means is that if I order something from Amazon, it groups all the emails together and at a glance I can see the delivery status of my order and click directly on the tracking link (this is without opening the email)...

sort of like the folder I created in yahoo mail called "Amazon" where - wait for it - all my emails from amazon go???

Jamie Oliver's ministry of malware served slops AGAIN

RISC OS

Yeah

you think he could easily pay for it to be done properly, just the other day he was bragging that he has made 250 million, where as Ramsay is only worth 100 million.

Seems he is too tight though to pay for real web support... I mean he's not a youtube chef, he's an internationally known chef and if he can't be bothered to spend money on his website in 2015 when the web is more than just a passing fad, it's his fault.

Don't pay for the BBC? Then no Doctor Who for you, I'm afraid

RISC OS

Re: Being in the US, I'm no expert on the BBC...

because there are idiots in this country who can't speak another language and have never lived anywhere else and truly believe (in the same way yanks believe in the bible stories) that british TV "is second to none and the envy of the world".

Sadly, they are wrong on both counts.

Re: We should pay for TV we dont want

UP yours,

I don't want to watch the BBC and can't see why I should pay for it. I don't see it as vital.

As You do and are "desperatly against a pay-per-view model" why don't you pay for me and everyone else... especially as you think "...It's vital that people don't have a choice where their money goes", paying for me shouldn't be a problem for you.

Currently I'm paying for the likes of you for something I don't use.
