Android kicks Steve's bot
Android kicks Steve's bot - not it really does ....
I've been pretty happy with my iPhone - but it's getting old ... time to upgrade... chances are I'm going for a droid.
My problem is too much choice !
Steve Jobs and Flash
I'm quite happy for Apple to ship products w/out Flash - what bugs me is Jobs inventing a bunch of hypocritical dreamt up reasons why they're not including it.
They're not doing it out of a virtuous move to standards. They're doing it whilst they've finally got some power to knock the competition (why else make such a big announcement when the latest Adobe products are about to ship), protect their revenue streams (Appstore) and promote standards they have a financial interest in. Jobs is just another Gates (but at least Gates is giving our money to charity).

Almost there !
As an update - I finally got a response from support and they manually restored old mail (but lost new mails in the process).
Anyway - I'm back up and running after just over 2 weeks!
So was anyone's mail migrated ?
It says on the Service Heartbeat page that the majority of existing emails have migrated and they are just doing the remaining ones manually.
Well I for one have still not got any of my existing mails/mailbox structure and was curious to know if anyone else had ....
Still no sign of migrated email or support!
I've been with UK2 for a couple of years and have generally been happy with their service - but the last few weeks things have rapidly unravelled.
When all my mails first vanished I was horrified - but relieved when the top dog let us all now that all mails were safe and would be restored shortly - by the end of the day. Phew!
As we all know they've failed to deliver for over a week now. I had messages in my mailbox that were important for me to respond to - but I have no means of accessing them. So I guess I'll have to wave goodbye to those customers.
Oh and don't even bother trying to contact support - I tried over the last few days of last week and haven't even had a response.
