8Mbit to carry a 9600baud GSM audio signal? HMmm....
Foveon sensor good, Lens bad
I don't see any part of any of these shots in good sharp focus. Another advert for why you don't want a Sigma lens. And the grain is surprisingly high on all above ISO100. I do wish for a good DSLR with any sensor that isn't bayer format though. This ain't it.
It's even worse than that
"Calls on 2G seem to be unaffected by this issue so you can still use your phone for its purpose" -- that's completely untrue too. I only have a 2G phone - a trusty Sony Ericsson K750i -- and this phone works perfectly fine everywhere except in the centre of Glasgow. Texts that won't send, calls that won't connect or get cut off. It's a total disaster and Voda keep telling us all is ok? Utter crap.
"unfrorgiveably unusably awful crap boxes from Virgin" - yes!
I've got whatever they gave me as their "current" / "latest" box. It's so completely unusable it's shoved in a back bedroom and really never used. Completely unbearable crap. I only have to keep it so that they give me the tripleplay discount. Cheaper to get 3 services than just two. Madness.
Sky Anytime+ only for Sky Broadband customers - that's stupid
I can't get Sky Broadband where I live, so I have Virgin cable. Fine. I also have a Sky+HD box. But I can't use Anytime because, despite the fact the box hooks to my home network just fine, they won't allow streaming via anything other than their own Sky broadband service. This is a total nonsense and really pretty disappointing. I can't see any justification for this really. Shame is, in comparison to the truly unfrorgiveably unusably awful crap boxes from Virgin, the Sky+HD box is an absolute joy. So I'm stuck with half-a-service from each provider not making up the whole experience. Fantastic. :(
