Re: Why would they have bought a new PC?
Only a masochist would have stuck with Windows 8.

At last on iOS 10 you can 'delete' most of the apps you don't want instead of hiding them in the Apple Crap folder, and then magically download them again from the App Store even while in AirPlane mode when required
HomeKit is a good idea just not pushed hard enough by Apple, someone had to get all the incompatible systems talking to each other, but why did it take Apple two years to launch their own app?

I'm sure the removal of the standard headphone socket is going to be such a major redesign factor that everyone is going to go wow and rush out and buy it.
Smartphones have reached maturity, there isn't much you can add, so price is now becoming the major decision on which phone to purchase
Lacking on new features, however the jailbreak should be available on Sunday, I can finally unbox my iPhone 5 and set it free
If you have a iPhone then VM already have an app for your phone that you can use to remote record from
Looks like we are going to be busy installing Chrome on our users PCs and then training them to use IE for all our business apps that only run in IE8 and only use Chrome for Google Apps. Getting them to understand to use different browsers for different tasks is going to be a big up hill battle
There are at least three models being released all supporting different LTE bands, of which none of them will support the frequencies being used by Vodafone and O2 for their new networks. It will only support the bands used by EE
Its not about us IT guys refusing to learn new skills, its about having to support 1000 users that can't understand where their start button went, how they have to waggle the mouse at the bottom corners of the screen to get something to happen, how they now have a new feature where every app is now full screen, and when seeing tiles, half of them won't work correctly as we don't use Exchange, and our proxy servers block access to lots of internet feeds
It was hard enough getting them to understand Win 7 from XP without having to now tell them that is is no longer a start button, I know how popular I'd be if I rolled out Win 8 across the company any time soon
Perhaps if Sky had been more interested when they were offered TIVO, it wouldn't be limited to cable customers
I bet Sweden will get the TIVO iPad app before Virgin who are still promising 'coming soon'
Hope those third world farmers can afford the inflated prices of that special seed
Redsn0w has been updated to support this version already, as long as you don't have a iPhone 4S or iPad 3
Just to change the colour and add a couple of menus takes VM a whole year, they need to get better developers, I'd be shot if I took that long
So people looking to save money on their cable package are going to rush out and buy a vastly over priced TV
Would love to push newer versions of IE to our users but until we can afford to purchase new versions of our software we can't move past IE6, and even apps that now work fine on IE8 still fail on IE9
Home users should be fine, but us business users are stuck on older versions for a reason
“What really jumped out to me was that the majority of those who responded stated that they would not buy a car in the future without DAB radio."
Only because they have heard that FM MAY switch off in 2015 and their current radios would be white elephants
Can't receive DAB even though I live in the capital city so they have a long way to go before I'd switch to DAB
Beats receiving the failed delivery card and them telling you they will attempt delivery tomorrow in the full knowledge that you are at work again so it takes you two days before you can drive to the depot and pick your parcel up
This way I can drive to my supermarket that evening and pick it up straight away
You only rent the box from VM so when your contract expires, it goes back to them
Also all failures are repaired free unlike borken Sky boxes
There is already is a Sunday Sun up North , the registrant gives it away 'Newcastle Chronicle and Journal' which is part of Trinity Mirror
No macros in the web version, no use to our 7000 users then
A true 50 meg broadband service none of this upto 20meg rubbish
VOD on your TV, you don't have to sit upstairs on your PC to catch up TV
TIVO possibly the best DVR on the planet
OK so the bundled phone service is a bit expensive but with VIP most of the calls are free anyway
The only downside on the TV side to watch Sky Movies and Sky Sports in HD you have to pay and extra £7 for each box due to Skys silly rules, otherwise no extra charges to watch the HD channels on VM
After trying to get excited about an iPad with the same interface as the ipod touch, Can't wait for the Xoom with its full web interface and a decent looking OS
Got the money ready and waiting, any 10.1" tablet is going to be better than either iPad I or iPad 2
Are you comparing the same spec iPad to the Xoom, as I make them out as being the same price but the Xoom gives you the full internet
Get the wifi only version out, the last thing I need is another 3G data plan
Replaceable battery a plus
Full internet not Apples restricted no flash policy, no matter what Apple and their fans believe flash is still important to get the whole of the internet
Ports to attach to the TV and plug usb device in plus
Bulk isn't much of a problem if it feels comfortable
