Re: Resolved? I think not.
After reading this, I thought I ought to check my own RBS account and sure enough, the money that I transferred in yesterday is no longer showing.
As a result I phoned RBS, who were very apologetic but couldn't help in any way.
Re: Don't think it's a good idea
Surely even the doomsayers have to applaud the efforts and the spirit that has gone into this handset?
These guys were laid off from Nokia; told they were surplus to requirements. They could have all gone home, played on their Xbox and moped around the house because they couldn't find another job (making a wild assumption there!), but they didn't - they got together and tried to do something different. Surely that in itself is worthy of some encouragement?
Just because *you* don't think it will work, doesn't mean that others do. I'm looking forward to reading a review, and highly likely to buy a handset when it reaches our shores.
.. I think the politician has made a bit of a boob there.
This is really, really good news!
Well done Three - it's about time that something like this happened :)
I will be one from the *next* 100,000
I've just had my MAC code; Be tried to get me to stay with a tempting offer from Sky - apparently I can get Sky fibre (even though there are not any FTTC cabinets in the viscinity and the BT Infinity checker says I can't get FTTC).
I'm off to (I think) IDNet, although I may have a look at PlusNet. Isn't PlusNet a BT company?
"The trouble is, of course, a lot of folk own DVRs already. No problem, says the ebullient Sir Alan, this is the box their going to replace their DVRs with"
The device feels as if it's a decade too late - not in terms of functionality but because it's yet another add-on box. At the moment, with the integration of Freeview / Freesat / iPlayer into Smart TVs, isn't the general trend to reduce the number of devices on the shelf below the telly?
Integrate it into a telly - yes, great. Or make it into a USB dongle so it can plug in to a PC / Mac or an existing telly that has a USB slot (assuming that kind of capability exists).
I stopped using my Touchpad just two weeks ago - I just got fed up of the pauses in mail app that caused me to delete multiple emails instead of one etc.
Shame really, as I really wanted WebOS and the TouchPad to be a market leader rather than a has been :(
I tried CyanogenMod 7 and 9 on it, and while it seemed to run OK there were still bugs that I experienced, mainly around wifi.
Again shame, as this could have given the tablet a new lease of life.
Training? Just more staff would help
In an Apple store there are *lots* of staff; having to wait for help is not particularly common.
In an Orange store, you can wait for *DAYS* before being served. If you can't get the attention of a member of staff, no amount of training is ever going to help.
