Plusnet broadband outage: Customers fume as TITSUP* continues

Re: If you think they're bad...Virgin Media

I deal with VM both as a business and a residential customer and the difference is chalk and cheese. On the business side any issues are normally dealt with as I am talking to them and if they say they will ring back they do. Well worth switching to the businesses package if you require a reliable service.

Car Sat Nav

Re: Anyone who puts the milk in tea whilst the bag is still in the cup

@ Dan Wilkie - Our only tea making facilities in the office are Klix machines :(

Doesn't that amount to constructive dismissal? Does Jeremy Corbyn know about this callus attack on the working man/woman, almost enough to make me vote Labour.

Windows 10 a failure by Microsoft's own metric – it won't hit one billion devices by mid-2018

cosymart
WTF?

Selling

Normally if someone wants me to buy something they make an effort to sell it to me. You know "it's better than X because it's more whizzy or get this and your PC will run more applications better" Nothing from Microsoft other than "Get this it's free now!". Could it be that Windows 10 is not better than the previous incarnations therefore Microsoft would fall foul of the various consumer laws and their only option was to upgrade by stealth. Mind you their version of stealth is somewhat different to the dictionary definition!

Re: There's a reason for that...

That might be because 8 out of 9 car owners are not complete morons?

But every driver knows that every other driver, apart from them, is a complete moron. So that makes 99.9999% of drivers to be morons.

It's cheap crap - why would anyone expect it to be secure? It's only redeeming point is that being so crap it won't last that long so will end up as landfill long before anyone gets chance to do anything meaningful with it.
