Oh, the hypocracy
So, the ASA block an ad for using "instant" to mean <1 minute, but still allow mobile networks to describe <1GB of internet usage as "Unlimited".
Oh well, at least they seem to be heading in the right direction...
"over the next 20 years"
That's £20m/year across all UK companies or about 5p each. What a load of bollocks.
Re: Why is Android important?
From a developers' perspective, it's not the Android OS itself that's important, but the PlayBook's support for the Dalvik virtual machine (i.e. Android apps) and Adobe AIR, which make it a viable platform to develop for, despite its relatively small user base.
We picked one up for £169 (£140+VAT) at PC World as a test device after discovering it can run Android apps and have been pleasantly surprised by how good it is.
If nothing else, it plays DivX and has HDMI straight out of the box ...
"aren't service providers offering TV like services required to provide freeview channels free of charge?"
No, although I believe that Sky and Virgin are obliged to provide access to the UK's 5 main PSB channels (BBC1/2, ITV1, C4, C5) as part of their license.
Give taxpayers' money to Virgin Media? You may as well burn it.
Need I say more?
It's time to apply the same rules to broadband as the banking sector: making 'typical speed' the most prominent element of the advertisement.
Sex offenders will automatically come off the register?
"Explaining that the government will do the minimum to comply, she explained that sex offenders will automatically come off the register."
A missing 'not' in there somewhere, I suspect ;-)
You begin by saying companies should innovate not imitate, but in the same breath say Nokia and others should embrace Android rather than develop their own platforms.
Make your mind up!
