Re: Insufficent bandwidth splash page
Ahem, kinda like... http://ispspeedindex.netflix.com/uk
Re: Do they call it free market?
"This does not look like capitalism at all."
Funny, it smells just like capitalism.
Re: @ Grease Monkey
It was discussed in depth for years by El Reg.
Youview is too expensive for a connected TV receiver, we need a free version of the Sky NowTV box, something cheap that does free/bbc Internet telly and is secure so they can stick the broadcast channels over IP as well without licensing issues.
Re: A bit puzzled...
Also caching, lots of caching. This actually happened to Teletext in it's final years (via capture cards), it made it very fast to use.
Re: A bit puzzled...
I assume the bandwidth may be a little wider.
So this whole article
...is about the word cracked?
Professional charities, I've never understood it.
A man with many thumbs and many pies http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Elstein
Sounds like Elstein is telling people what he wants them to hear, clearly there's some money he can't currently access.
This will be slower than current systems, mobile data is notoriously slow in most shopping centres and malls in the UK.
All about the money
These big companies seem to think they have an automatic right to our spectrum, I don't like their meeting, I don't like them publicising their meeting, I don't think they are in any way qualified to give the faintest idea of a good use for this bandwidth.
The digital dividend was always a dream but clearly there are some expectations in the minds of those who thought digital switch over was a good idea, vastly expanded Freeview, and the killer app whitespace networking!!!!
When The iPhone was released...
I was shocked.
I remember saying "HP are gonna sue their asses"
I guess HP felt that Apple stealing the 'i' from iPaq for use on the 'i' in iPhone was not a strong enough case. It's a shame Apple don't have their sense of shame.
Which setting do I need to choose...
Which setting do I need to choose to block Page 3 of the Sun and the Daily Mail Sidebar of shame. Also I'd like to block any pictures or Theresa May? Is this possible?
While we are at it how about blocking any leaked Tory speeches prior to 2010?
Re: MS WINDOWS 8.1 UPDATE - ZERO DAY EXPLOIT?
They do that a lot these days, making you say Yes to say No.
So is there a huge gaping security hole?
MS have had almost as many U-turns as Cameron this year.
Re: From a Nexus 4 owner
I never found it to be slippery, my previous phone (Nexus S) was far more devious when attempting to escape my hand.
I did worry about the glass back and got a case for it pretty soon though.
Facebook didn't post it, it was one of their users.
Can we one day have a PM who gets the Internet?!
I never liked the fiddly little Start Menu of old, the Win8 start menu is way more spacious and organised.
Just one thing bothers me... How do I remove the Start button? It reminds me of the bad old days....
Re: Instinct over IQ
Snide or not those comments are indicative how a lot of people perceive both brands. The opening comment was exactly what I expected to see when I clicked comments, and it still made me laugh.
For me Apple's brand slipped when they released the first iPhone, it had less features than my Sony Ericsson of the time, I felt it didn't live up to the my experience of their computers.
I'd never heard of Burberry before the chavs made it famous. :)
Re: Save XP
Correct you could opt for XP until 2010 but the end of life date was known by then.
Still has the queen in it
Refusing to swear to her was how I finally stopped going to the play-football-in-a-hall rather than learn something club and was finally able to watch Tomorrows World on a Thursday evening. :)
So for those of us with slave drivers as bosses
Will a download be available?
Re: Good idea
>> Let's be honest 'at work' doesn't have to be that accurate
Maybe you don't want the phone on vibrate when you are waiting outside for the bus (we don't all drive).
Re: So if I live in Barnsley
I see a new use for this! :)
...don't get thanked, have you not seen the news lately?
Mine too. Not a problem...
Re: It will
It's not about capitalist/childish dreams of have the biggest, best or most expensive.
Re: UK vs Euro pricing
Why anyone would vote your comment down is beyond me. Google is a company like any other, there to squeeze every last penny they can from us. OK in the past they haven't done the Microsoft/Apple trick of charging the same number in different currencies but then again they haven't really charged for much so far.
I'll stick with Grooveshark.com, being an early adopter of their subscription model netted me a special rate of $30 per year. And they will answer your emails.
Re: US only?
Of course it's only a problem if your SIM is an old 56-bit DES encrypted one.
Re: Techies hitting the beach perhaps...
Almost exactly what I was thinking. It could just be that XP is still big on home PC's, July is summer, people on staycations and wfh will be on these dust buckets more often.
I wouldn't sign up.
Might as well put em behind NAT...
10Gbps isn't enough of a leap.
As they don't pay their taxes...
Should the Met send them a bill?
Re: So we can disable the laugh track.
Yup, or add and remove and component part. Say you want to remove the ticker from BBC News. Mr Orlowski seems to have avoided writing about any benefits and focussed solely on attacking the BBC as usual.
I read the whole article and thought something wasn't right, when I saw the author I realised it was an Orlowski classic. ;)
They are not ISP's they are NOISP's
Can't we settle this like Champagne and sparkling wine?
If you supply a connection to the whole Internet you are an ISP.
If you supply a connection to some online services but not others you are a twat, err I mean Nonspecific Online Internet Services Provider. AKA a NOISP...
A reward for the Pirates then!
You aren't buying the media if it has DRM.
for those of us with work to do...
He sounds very much like a number two.
They finally get Freeview working well
...then feck around with it, is Offcom run by PFY's?
What's the point in twice the speed if there is an unfair use policy?
Re: Maybe Not..
Mine too but I stuck with it and after a couple of months it was better than ever. T-Mob have had good 3G for about 2 months now in my bits of London.
Why would they want it? There are countries in Europe about to rip it's guts out for DPA violations.
I read the first chapter of this rant. Clearly the Prof has something or someone to protect.
Re: DRM Encourages Piracy
Same, even with the xxl price tag I was gonna buy it but as soon as I heard about the DRM it stopped being a game I would pay so much for.
It must be made offline capable.
Us cyclists also remove a large number of fine particulates from the air you breathe by trapping them in our lungs. Come the revolution motorists will be attached to their exhausts to act as air filters too. ;P
No one wants to download X factor rubbish?
Yawn... Can't we just have the facts in a nice little table?
This is not about phones
Unless the phone is running an Intel chip. Wine is x86 only for obvious reasons.
