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?
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.
People complain when Apple sue over copyright, yet this is blatantly a copy of an Apple bluetooth keyboard
until BBC starts broadcasting all it content in 4K and the 4K TV costs less than £500, and my existing 1 year old 40 inch HD 'smart' TV stops working.
I have a Sony 'smart' TV and after turning it on you cannot change channel for unto a minute while it 'boots' up to allow be access to a load of crap that I will never use
investing in UK!!!
Building network infrastructure to roll out a service that they plan to make a profit from is not 'investing in the UK'
Re: My concern....
I did a clean install using an 8.1 installer in less than an hour. How could it possible take 9 hours!
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.
Good to see that the huge sums we pay to fund education both in taxes and student fees are being used to fund this vital work.
To do what?
I might be interested and I am a UK citizen
less support issues
I bet they have less support issues from their users than if everyone were on Windows.
Re: Why DO you need to upgrade?
Quite, I use a 6 year old Mac Pro which is happily running Maverick latest version of Photoshop.
I wonder how many of those banks are running less than legal copies of XP!
Can I opt out?
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)
What about cars?
There is no sensible, practical retrofit car solution for DAB.
I agree that most local radio is crappy identikit stations.
Are they tracking these millions of app launches?
I have a 6 year old Mac running the latest version of OSX, never had to wipe it to install newest version.
Downvote if you like, but it is a fact.
Re: Colour me unsurprised
iOS7 has been available to developers for ages, they should have updated their apps accordingly.
get rid of the unions
Unions are only interested in pushing their own biased political views, they don't give a damn about majority voting or what is best for employees AND employers
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.
same day as O2 - of course...
they share the same transmitters of cell towers, only the backend is separate
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.
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!
46 hours - so what!
I work an average of 46 hours a week -- it is not unusual at all!
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.
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.
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
pre-release software may not be final version
Twas ever thus
if you don't like it.....
then do not buy one - simples!
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.
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
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.
Unlike your cousins on the PC, you won’t be getting OneNote, Access or Publisher.....
or any update to Outlook 2011 which is slow and buggy
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.
Re: Unlimited until...
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.
but I would say do not even consider Microsoft Windows certifications - nobody cares about those.
VMWare is a good suggestion from Scuby
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?
Re: "Just don't tell anyone about my daughter Vista then..."
or my children, RS232 interface and centronics
