Don't split Openreach, says BT, and we'll splash BEELLIONS on broadband and 4G

Only me!
FAIL

Please do not split us

Do not split us up as you can see it must be worth a shed load to us, as we are willing to pretend we are interested in serving "something called" customers.

Snafu! BT funnels all customers' sent email into one poor sod's inbox

Only me!
WTF?

As the BT advert says

I think the ad says something like "Get what you deserve" which to be fair, if you are with BT they deliver on that promise

Picture

Can all Trump owned places, please put a large picture of his face on the entrance door.

That way people can easily choose to not go in......then again they may get a fair few doors kicked in.

Ok, back to the drawing board for a better idea, that does not encourage violence.

Mobe and Wi-Fi firms flog your location data to commercial firms, claim reports

Only me!

Blood suckers

They are all blood suckers......Facebook, Twitter, enter a random app name, etc.

Why the surprise about the mobile and wifi networks?

You should have a choice to opt out and they should not have a choice in saying you cannot!

Putting terms and conditions on and saying you agree, tick this box. Just does not cut it in my book.

The business models/cashflow are as good as your local law firms guys can make them, as long as you live in Panama.

Dead Steve Jobs is still a crook – and Apple must cough up $450m for over-pricing ebooks

Only me!
Thumb Down

Refunds????

Ok so people that purchased a book in 2010 overpaid.

Refund people that overpaid ... ok I get that.

Refund the book companies that sold less books than they could have done.....tricky, so they were part of the problem.

Refund people for the loss of enjoyment that was caused because they could not afford the books....also tricky.

Refund the business that went out of business because of this.....mmmm

Apple win all the way.......they now have massive market share after crushing all competition.........so who cares about £450M.....look at the bigger prise.

Recall: Bring out yer dead and over-heating Microsoft Surface Pro power cords

Only me!

Bit late!

My power cord failed after 3 weeks.....the secret I have since discovered is to unplug the power cord from the power pack.

It's a pity as the power pack is small and light, let down by a cheap cord form the pack to the plug.

Net neutrality debate: If startups want to rival Google, they must show some green to telcos

Only me!

Re: A bit like leeches

As Amazon or Facebook make no profits in the UK (honest!), how are the telcos going to make a profit out of them?

I pay my ISP to deliver a good quality internet connection, I should not pay more for Netfix or HD or 4K. What I should pay for is an unmetered service at say 100 Meg.

If then Netflex does not work as it does not have a big enough pipe from its ISP, then it should adjust its pipe, with its ISP. Not every telco/ISP in the world!!!!!

Microsoft backports data slurp to Windows 7 and 8 via patches

Only me!
Devil

Honest

How is a criminal going to stay in business? The police just ask MS, Google, Facebook et al for the info and show it in court? (Of course they will need a court order to first ask)

Then again, it could be a cost saving exercise for police forces as they will only need half the number of coppers.

Just thought.....has any considered the human rights of the terrorist in this?

More to the point, has any considered my human rights to privacy?

Smartwatch biz Pebble says smartwatch biz Apple won't approve its new app – surprise

Only me!

Re: Like School In Summer... No Class

We have a problem on the anti trust front. In that Apple will claim they have less the 50% market share and android has more, I think Blackberry and Windows phones are also available.

Although Android is part of the Google empire it is spread a lot more thinly, as each phone maker Sony, Samsung, etc. are all competing for you cash. So although Apple have less share, their share is a lot bigger than the rest and they do make the most of it (Who can blame them?)

But by the time it goes through the legal stuff, it gets messed up and no one can see what is really going on.

Skype hauled into court after refusing to hand call records to cops

Only me!
Thumb Up

Good for them

It is always good to see that the correct process in law is getting followed. The police cannot just come in to my house and expect to go through all the draws without first getting the ok from a judge that there might be something worth looking for. So why should they be able to do it to Skype?

That is of cause, unless the law is a really stupid one, like the extradition law the UK has with the US.

A gold MacBook with just ONE USB port? Apple, you're DRUNK

Only me!

Welcome to the wireless world

OK I am no Apple fan, but...we are at the start of a new revolution.....

My Mouse Bluetooth, headphones Bluetooth, keyboard Bluetooth, PowerPoint presentation cast of a wireless display, printer WiFi, file transfer from my phone and camera are wifi.

OK a touch extreme, I grant you, but all possible and all giving good / ok results. Loss of speed and quality of course but no wires. So the one plug to the lappy is for power.

It is a little like the iMac when people could not get the head around not having a disk drive.

Too soon to make the leap at this point, but hey this is the future............to infinity and beyond!

The above has nothing to do with the new Mac Book, but is saying where the tech is going.

Let's mess with the up down votes and say I have a Surface :-)

Samaritans 'suicide Twitter-sniffer' BACKFIRES over privacy concerns

Only me!

Opt Out

So to opt out you:

a) Have to know that they monitor the data and tell people

b) Know someone following you is signed up (Steven Fry, watch out)

c) Follow the people that you do not want to monitor you

d) Say hello stop monitoring me

e) De follow them

f) Block the people that are now following you to sell you anti depressant pills because you followed them

Oh as it is that simple, it is all ok then.....lucky I was not depressed before I started, because I am now.

Walked away

Yep BT walked away from "low margin" deals.......I would like to know what they consider low margin.

It might also tell local government, just how much they have been paying for a far from perfect service.

Hungary's internet tax cannot be allowed to set a precedent, says EC

Only me!

End User Tax?

Where are they planning to tax this?

Through put of data in the ISP? So do not share your network with others.

Tax the end user.....upload or download or both?

Tax on the EE principle of data counting (Double the data count)

Does it include overhead data that you do not want.....i.e. remove all data considered as spam and do not count advert data you did not click on.

Wrong, this is just wrong.

Surface is actually a great bit of kit. (no up down votes on this comment please....its about the watch...cuff!)

Will it see the light of day

Just because they have a patent, does not mean it will see the light of day, they will be able to block other firms from trying to help you give up smoking. Or make it that expensive, people will just carry on puffing away.

Of course I could be wrong,.......
