'Please, steal my phone' TV ads by T-Mobile US slammed by legal eagles

Armed bodyguards with every contract?

"It's time for telecommunications giants such as T-Mobile to step up and make meaningful progress towards implementing safeguards that protect consumers against these violent thefts,"

It's not like an individuals welfare is thier own responsibility.....

The laws that are enforced in whatever country you are in.

On a side note, if they make it an "Opt-out" system they might aswell just call it "The Potential Peado List" considering they are trying to protect the kids.

Sky boffins: The Moon is not Earth's only natural satellite

CaNsA

Re: I don't get it...

Something to do with the pull from the sun, the earth and the moon creating the slingshot effect.

It's only a matter of time before the mini-moon has enough speed to break free..... just like Freddie Mercury.

Virgin Media to push out nimble new broadband speeds

CaNsA
Stop

Awww bless ya cotton socks.

From >> http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Announcements/We-re-doubling-our-customers-broadband-speeds/td-p/958421

"Why do I have to wait for my Speed Boost?

Over the next 18 months we're going to be upgrading over four million customers. Doubling everyone’s speed is a pretty big job so it can’t happen overnight. Our engineers will be working as fast as they can to upgrade 38,000 street cabinets and 186,000km of cable (enough to go around the equator four times).

As soon as the network is ready and tested in a region, we'll upgrade everyone in that area as quickly as possible."

RIM faces legal action following service outages

CaNsA

"Oh Noes!!!! I needs my bbm!"

TBH i'm not surprised.

Bloody blame culture that we live in.

I reckon that RIM done a blinding job of getting an International Outage resolved, and not using "Hot-Fixes", within 4days.

Shit dude, some-one give them a medal.

500 jobs threatened as Virgin Media shutters Liverpool call centre

CaNsA
Angel

I know how they feel......

I used to work for VM 5 or 6 years ago. I was based at the Atlantic Pavilion.

Made some good mates there, some I am still working with today in my new job with a different company which is based on the 3rd floor of Atlantic Pavilion

This seems like a rushed announcement from VM in light of the new "agency workers" laws that are coming into effect this weekend.

Many of the employees at VM, as stated, are employed by external agencies and have been very unhappy with the lack of pay rises. In fact the pay is the same as 5 years ago. Starting wage for 1st Broadband Tech was £15k IIRC. Now its £12k.

VM / Adecco / IBM & Manpower are currently at logger heads with a union regarding pay, working hours, working environment etc etc.

Wouldnt surprise me if VM were going to close the site in a couple of months anyways.

Hell, they screwed me and my mates over when they "tested" off shore call centres.

@ all my mates who are feeling screwed right now:-

I just wont be the same, flicking ciggies into a bin without you there to witness the skill.

Good luck peeps.
