Ideal profit margin
"I'm paying over £20 a month"
How much digging/fibre/DSLAM/Cabinet/other fixed assets do you think £20/month buys? If this was the huge cash cow everyone seems to think BT thinks it is, why did everyone else drop out? Simple. It's bloody expensive to build and pay back takes a long time, by which time the kit's out of date and it all starts again.
One alternative would be to split the network off BT, Virgin et al and have a single government owned network. No digging the same road up three times to supply different suppliers. Only QOS as a benchmark. Guaranteed to work. Like the railways, or the roads.
Oh, hang on.
Shoorly that'll be "Up to the speed of light"?
the rustling of small leaves.
Do we have a reg standard measure for noise? If not we should have.
Whilst it's easy to complain about the former incumbent (And I've dome my fair share of that over time), Who would provide a safer pair of hands? Virgin et al? They stopped short of even the relatively dense towns so they'll never get out over hills and dales and islands. Fujitsu have already walked away because it can't make it pay.
If you think you could do a better job for the money then get yourself onto Kickstarter, get some cash from all the disaffected broadband have nots and go for it.
Me? I'll just wait for the only company with the wherewithal to do the job to come and do it in my small town.
Worked for me
Free sites do work. Plenty of fish worked for me. Met Mrs. WYWH 27 months ago today on there. There is quality on the free sites but like all things in life, you need to use some common sense. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck.
It is unlikely to the point of absurdity to...
... think anyone would print out shoes in this way for any foreseeable amount of time and heavier than air machines shall never fly.
Seriously though, I want to download and print a car, if only to thumb my nose at those pontificating anti piracy ads in front of the DVD I PAID FOR!
Should it not say
"up to"(*) half of all complaints upheld?
"so don't loose the cable."
How can you use them as wireless if you don't loose it?
Paris 'cos she's a bit loose apparently
I for one
welcome our new iPad restricting evil overlords.
I would just like to say one thing here.
As a smoker, I like to think I'm doing my bit to save the country from the financial hell hole it's put itself in. As a heavy smoker since age 14, I will most likely die fairly quickly before I'm 65 of some nasty smoking related disease. Nobody forces me to smoke. I do this out of choice. I will not be an interminable burden on the NHS and social services as I suffer Alzheimers or similar debilitating but long term illness. I will not expand the pension hole by drawing my hard earned pension for years and years ad nauseum. I will return my house, well maintained because I'm sane and wealthy enough to maintain it, to the housing stock pool so that someone else can live here. I don't ask you to praise me. Tolerate me. We are supposed to be a tolerant society. Do not berate me for making your non-smoking dotage just a little more affordable.
Please won't someone think of the children and start promoting smoking?
Paris, 'cos she's smoking.
Because they can provide you the moon on a stick. One of their salesmen told me that.
Paris, because, really, she promises more than she delivers, well, if her videos are anything to go by.
Search by Apple
So Apple didn't do search? Thank the (insert deity of choice). Would websites have to submit their site to Applesearch for inclusion like the appstore? I sure the wits and wags on here can think of funnier things but the thought of Apple trying to take on Google at search just makes me laugh.
And the iphone is pants. Pretty, but pants. I'll stick with my 6310i.
