too centralised already
The UK is already too centralised on London - we need to spread employment further afield, even if it is just M3/M4/M40 corridor
I wonder if they check
I have just asked for Hull to be removed from the map :)
What did she ever do to me?
Most of my education was in the Thatcher years, when schools had enough teachers, when I got a full grant to go to university and had no debt when I finished. Blair/Brown screwed up all of that.
2) State that as China/India/The US won't reduce emissions why should we.
No need for us to do anything until China/India/US make major changes. Even if we just switched off the UK it would have no impact on global pollution.
I have one - meh
The Surface Pro is not really a tablet - it is too heavy and thick. It is a laptop with a slightly different design. The keyboard add on is awful - very easy to hit the wrong buttons and is like a cross between the keyboards on Sinclair ZX81 and Spectrum.
so what about outside?
O2 reception is poor outside most of the time and Vodafone is not much better !
Sony smart TV too slow
I have a 2012 model Sony 'smart' TV - it takes several seconds to respond to the remote after the picture is on, presumably because it is still booting. All the menus, guides and other crap are accesses via a slow and poorly designed UI, none of it works as well as my Humax PVR which is quick, slick and just does what is needed and nothing else.
very dubious figures
So they claim that 21% of workers currently use a tablet - where?
My company, among other things, produces software for tablets yet still less than 21% have a tablet.

streaming HD doesn't even make my 73 meg connection blink
Re: Deeply unpleasant
I agree - the system is very biased towards buyers. As a seller I am unable to leave negative feedback, yet the buyer can do so with impunity whether a good service has been provided or not.
Should be free
If Microsoft want all kids brain-washed into thinking theirs is the only software then they should be providing it free to schools.
Also, if schools already have a version of Office, why do they need to upgrade?
My 8 year old son was set homework he had to do on Powerpoint the other day - ridiculous.
encourage proper degrees
Make engineering and science degrees free for UK citizens, funded by all those wasting 3 years doing media studies, drama and other waste of time 'degrees'
O2 boostbox doesn't work
We had 2 O2 boostboxs supplied for 2 home workers, neither ever worked and O2's technical people gave up trying and just said that the users needed to buy a new router but would not guarantee it would work after that
I am surprised they got 16% - who buys a Nokia phone these days?
Unless all internal systems are accessed via Citrix or some other remote technology is situations where you get a user saying 'I cannot do this and I am working on a multi million pound deal' who will determine that the isssue is with the user's own equipment and we will not fix it?
Is it just us?
Do other countries have all this hoop jumping just to roll out digital TV?
O2 - no chance
We tried O2's version with 3 people, and it never worked.
Common sense from a judge - surely not!
I have dropped my iPhone 4S several times on my tarmac drive and it is still ok,
So if I replace my iPhone 4 with an iPhone 5 then I cannot use it with my Bose Sound dock or my Pure digital radio - guess I don't need an iPhone 5 as much as I thought then !
What has this got to do with anything?
Never used it
Youtube video on a mobile phone - never used it, never need it, won't miss it when I upgrade my iPhone and iPad to iOS6
got my name, logged off, probably never use it again apart from registering for services I don't want to be spammed by
O2 network coverage poor - that is not news
that is sadly everyday O2 'service'
Re: Won't somebody think of the users ?
Spares - that depends how your company works. In mine the user's cost centre owns their equipment - if they want another mouse then go buy one, IT does not have budget to your their needs.
Fix 3G first
Until companies like (and specifically) O2 can provide a decent 2G/3G signal they should not be allowed to work on 4G.
Really? I would never have guessed!
Thanks for letting me know that an iPad using Apple's consumer software is no good at work - I would never have worked that out!
While you are at it why didn't you point out that MS Publisher is no good for serious publishing work.
Issue not just in UK
I have users travelling abroad also reporting their O2 phone not working
In my corporate...
with over 12,000 staff globally we have over 40% of staff using a Mac, the percentage in IT is over 50%. Why - because staff are able to choose and almost all internal systems work cross-platform. Macs require less initial setup time, less ongoing support than PCs and the failure rate in much lower. Also a 4 year old Mac laptop is still perfectly usable with the latest OS, you cannot say the same about the PCs are 3 years old.
Who wants to go in an MS shop?
I was in the Valley Fair shopping mall in San Jose,CA in March, it was 11am on a Sunday. The Apple Store was jam packed with people, the Microsoft store opposite had 2 people in it, both staff. Apple stores work because most of the items in them are Apple products so it is a focussed experience, MS stores are basically just another PCWorld - no USP.
Get shot of him
Just stick him on the next plane to Stockholm - problem solved.
director of customer experience - really?
The big surprise is that they have a 'director of customer experience' - obviously he has never used the underground where the customer experience is awful from beginning to end
Always hated BT, just got BT Infinity
Virgin Media cable stops at the end of my road, they didn't bother installing on my new estate of 1000 houses. BT just rolled out Infinity 3, I now have 67meg download - happy days.
Windoze should receive a daily kicking for it's constant infections by many viruses. The fact that this malware on a Mac is such a big deal is because it is unusual.
