5 Eyes in the Sky: The TRUTH about Flight MH370 and SPOOKSATS

teapot9999

Surprised?

I have been able to see my own car parked outside my house of Google Earth for years so why is anyone surprised about this level of satellite imagery!

Apple to grieving sons: NO, you cannot have access to your dead mum's iPad

teapot9999

What do you want?

Everyone complains that there is no security on mobile devices. Apple makes mobile devices secure and still people complain.

What do you/we want?

UK.gov back-office battle may see British Justice offshored

teapot9999

No to offshoring

It is not in this country's interest to offshore jobs - that is very shortsighted.

If you make people redundant they will start claiming benefits which will more than make up for any 'savings' from offshoring.

why should they listen

If you keep on using Windows then it doesn't matter how much you whinge. Either stop using it or accept that they will not listen to your feedback.

Just saying.

Can I opt out?

Dear BT,

My 73meg connection is fine, but I do not want BT Sport, what deduction can I have each month for unsubscribing?

(BTW: you are not losing out as I do not have Sky either)

NO! Radio broadcasters snub 'end of FM' DAB radio changeover

teapot9999

What about cars?

There is no sensible, practical retrofit car solution for DAB.

I agree that most local radio is crappy identikit stations.

Rotten Apple iOS 7 fury: Glitchy audio or is today's music really that bad?

Re: Colour me unsurprised

iOS7 has been available to developers for ages, they should have updated their apps accordingly.

Apple: Of course we stalk your EVERY move. iOS 7 has a new map to prove it

teapot9999

and the upshot is...

does anyone, I mean anyone, really give a monkeys where I was last week. I don't.

If Apple know, and they don't because the option to turn on is hidden six clicks into menus, what would they do with the info other than surmmise that I spend a lot of time in my own house, and they know where that is anyone because my that is my registered address with both Apple and Vodafone.

Community radio - who needs it?

I do not want some amateur telling me that the local station toilets are out of use.

What radio is lacking in this country is choice of music stations, we need something like Sirius XM in USA.

The O2 4G Lottery: Are YOU in one of the three LUCKY cities?

What about improving existing services?

Signal reception on O2 is pretty flaky, even in central London - perhaps they should concentrate on making what they have work properly first!

Welsh gov beats off Canada to hand £1m to Nintendo dev

teapot9999
WTF?

am I missing something?

Why are the taxpayers giving a UK company £1m to open another office in UK - we have the skills in this country, it should be expected or even demanded that the extra jobs are created here.

Galaxy S4 way faster than iPhone 5: Which?

teapot9999
Thumb Down

so what?

I have an iPhone 5, I never think it is slow, or that it would be better if it did something 0.01ms faster. I guess the S4 needs all the extra power to run the background spyware, viruses, crapware etc.

Glasgow subway's new smart tickets aren't, moan passengers

teapot9999

Too cheap

Why is it so cheap? Maybe they should join the real world with the ticket price put up to at least £4.

I cannot even get on my local bus for £1.10.

smb works now on OSX

I work in a company that is 70% Windows PCs, 30% Mac. The servers are 50% Windows and 50% unix-flavours, all of which I can access with no difficulty at all using smb on my Mac.

Seems this is another knee-jerk story based on nothing

signal issues

So in the many, many places that O2 and Vodafone signal is not good enough to use data (I cannot comment on other networks) you will be unable to get your own money.

Smart TVs riddled with DUMB security holes

teapot9999
WTF?

Not so smart

I have a 'smart' Sony TV that once the picture appears still takes upto a minute before it will respond to the remote control as it is presumably booting up a whole load of cr*p that I will never use

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.

Microsoft Surface Pro will land in UK in WEEKS*

teapot9999
Go

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.

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.

200 million office workers gagging for a... Microsoft Surface?

teapot9999

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.

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.

Blighty's schools shake on new 3-year deal with Microsoft

teapot9999
WTF?

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.
