bing

It seams that I am not the only person in the world that uses bing. I prefer the results to google. (after doing my own unscientific studies. All my friends point and laugh when I suggest giving it a go.

Nokia Lumia 800

If you tap the letter in your list of apps or contact you get an alphabet - tap the letter to go to the start of the list... this will only happen after you have a list of a specific size or greater... (not sure of the amount).

I love WP7 - waiting for the next lot of nokia phones, these offer very little new to what I have got already...

Ballmer disses Android as cheap and complex

David 163
Meh

Just because Balmer is an idiot don't dismiss Windows Phone.. its a great little OS. There are still things that need to be added but that will come with time.

They have achieved a huge amount and what they have done they have done very well (apart form a few issues). I am very impressed with my phone and have been eagerly awaiting the Nokia phones.

A lot of talented people have put a lot of work and effort into Windows Phone, its sad that people have this huge loathing for anything that's not "their favourite". This applies to everything in life.

The ribbon will make using the classic desktop with a finger easier in my opinion.

Want wait until V2

I disagree- I cant wait until V2

the big thing is drivers - I have never been able to find compatible Server 2003 drivers for my Graphics card or Blu-ray player. I also had issues streaming things from WHSv1 over the network. I ended up not using DE as it was this that was causing me problems.

I now have 2x 2tb drives in the PC for storage one is backed up to the 2nd drive nightly.

I have been using the beta versions of V2 for a while and think its awesome.

HTC shuns Honeycomb for Android tablet debut

David 163

Not quite free

Android is not quite free- you pay license fee to use the Google services. I don't know how useful the OS is without these services or with the services include.

Rev slammed for PAYE failure

David 163
Unhappy

Not in real time

The big problem with the HMRC (apart from their general lack of ability to do simple math) is they have no idea what is happening with an employee until the end of the tax year once they receive a P14.

They then issue coding notices based on this new information which may be out of date.

This is due to change in the next few years as they are looking to move to a monthly return from the employers. This should allow them to keep accurate records and allow them to react better to changes in circumstances. (again allowing for their inability to do simple math and loose electronic data in an automated system)
