What's the nature of your emergency, Vodafone?

TechGeezer

Err.. if the emergency services used Vodafone so heavily, then most of those fires would burn a whole city to the ground through lack of proper coverage....

FIFO!

I remember one of my colleagues who worked as a P4U rat that the acronym FIFO was quite popular. No not First In First Out...

...Fit In or F**k Off....

kind sums up the employment experience...

It's a done deal! Microsoft-Nokia merger to close on Friday

TechGeezer

RIP Nokia.

Death of a legend. A death of its own making.

Time for Nadella to f*ck it all up.

Use 6Tag!!

Honestly, I can't understand all the fuss...

6Tag has been out for quite a while now, and has all the functionality of the iOS app but with better aesthetic touches. Its the full fat, full access experience only better.

6Tag!

LTE?

LTE? long term evolution? Of 3G?... Yes, that would be fine if Vodka bothered to supply me with a 3G signal in the first place.. So I have no confidence in them supplying me with an LTE signal.. I'm sorry but they rely on an outdated business model, supplying an outdated service, on outdated and overwhelmed technologies.. And I am in the second city not in some country bumpkin land.

Truth of the matter is that Vodafone is truly shockingly terrible and I wouldn't even recommend their service to a recluse for fear of them not being able to have the opportunity not to make contact....

Elephant in the Room....

Still the elephant in the room.... Electricity transmission and now this system added, A BEV car will still contribute more in CO2, from start to finish, than a standard internal combustion engined car.

BT Tower is just a relic? Wrong: It relays 18,000hrs of telly daily

TechGeezer

How about the sister sites??? Anchor Exchange especially.

Interesting report. I enjoyed that. But what's happening at the sister sites in Birmingham and Manchester? Anchor is a site that melts any West Midland as they get close to home, yet it too is looking a bit bare. Worth checking out!

New Lumia 925: This, loyalists, is the BIG ONE you've waited for

Re: Hmmmm

They can't. Nokia launched the smartphone with these features years ago so any challenge in court would go to Nokia.

Apple share-price-off-a-cliff: Told you that would happen

TechGeezer

Haven't we been here before...?

Seen this happen to Nokia. Slows down decision making and brings inbuilt financial inefficiencies. Being the richest does not necessarily meen being the best and vice versa.

Alienware assimilates Dell FROM THE INSIDE!

TechGeezer
FAIL

Why haven't they done a smartphone?

I'm actually surprised... Alienware has such a maverick design language, whey haven't they developed a smartphone or lent their name and design DNA to a mobile phone developer under license? Opportunity missed.... And what with WP8 featuring full integration with Windows 8/RT and XBox live the chance for Alienware to become a more integrated comms/gaming hub.

Nokia updates N97 firmware

TechGeezer
FAIL

more updates from acompany that can't be arsed to develop its products properly.

yet another update to fix the flaws that they should have sorted before they released the product. The phone is supposed to be their flagship phone but from day one it has been a pile shit. I seriously LOVE the for factor and the fact that the joypad lets me play video games (unlike the mini or N900). But the user experience is shit. The processor is shit. And everything is sooooo slow. I have seen Symbian working ln a Cortex A8 and it's actually really effective. But NOKIA HAS NO CLUE HOW TO DO A GOOD GUI. They are good engineers fucking LOUSY DESIGNERS...

Until they sort this out, I will no longer buy another Nokia product.

New music file aims to sink piracy using blogs and Twitter

TechGeezer
WTF?

DRMs discourage people from seeking legal channels.

Eh? Then that means I can't take my MP3's which reside on my SD cards, and use them in my car stereo. I see this as an EPIC FAIL if they want to prevent people stealing MP3s. The only way you can encourage people to buy their MP3s is to change the music business model. However there are still people that mistakenly believe that they can make music, thus make money. Nope. If you are professional musicians, then you need to look into other revenue streams. Merchandise, trademarking the band name, touring, proper marketting etc etc. This is where the money is at.

I will NEVER use DRM protected MP3s and will ALWAYS seek alternatives. Currently I buy all my MP3s from 7Digital where there is no DRM, and it will play on my mobile, my car stereo, my computer, ........
