Re: Don't get it
Yep, that's what I thought, as a hardware engineer, If I had access it would be pretty easy, but I wouldn't have a clue as to the software side
So if you get a faulty keyboard/mouse you replace the whole PC??
Yes, but the article says a 3G dongle was used, and that wouldn't be on the network.
Also, as people have said, some high street banks are more lax than others.
I used to do break/fix in banks sometimes, all I had to do was sign in and show my photo ID and know the name of a/my contact.

Still got the album!
Re: Am I missing something
True I don't really use metro (in fact I can't stand it) , most of the "apps" are crap/amateurish. My 3yr old laptop suffered a screen failure so I thought I would use it as an excuse to get an up to date machine (hardware wise).
The applications that I do use mostly seem to run faster/smoother.
So, yea, looking forward to 8.1
Our household moved from desktops to laptops around 3 yrs ago, Win7. I have just recently replaced my (and wife's ) laptops that came with Win8, I was sceptical at first (until I was shown Win/D ) but after I loaded it with my usual applications and do Win/D after startup (for desktop mode) I use it just as I did with Win7.
Am I missing something?
Re: Will cause more problems than it solves
On the othe side of the coin, my multiple drug prescription is also sent electronically to the pharmacy (for the last 2yrs or so). The prescription being picked up my myself in as little as 30mins (no mistakes so far). A few years ago I opted out, but now, after a heart attack, can see the benefits, provided of course the system is designed efficiently
I can still remember what things were like 50+ years ago.
I see all the arguments regarding the pros and cons of this tracking, but 'cos it CAN be done
will probably be done. Next step (100yrs off) is a tattoo of microdots (at birth 'cos of the "what about the children") activated by RF, with all sorts of 2way data
Looks like your son's are tech savvy

Re: No photos in the canteen
'scuse me, what's wrong with cooking at home
Why not just lock the base unit inside a cupboard - as is quite a common practice ?
How about - Minidisk player (off *bay). two hifi cassette decks, VHS player, Digital8 camcorder.
I still have my first 1.3 Mpixel camera - cost £239.
Not completly in the dark ages, my current camera a Sony A200, TV 37" LCD + a HDD PVR
