"and they do not do so to any extent which could reasonably be regarded as significant"
Wish these politicians would fuck off with their double speak!
Either they do or they don't?
she would "fight on until this industry is regulated and the serious risks publicised"...
...or in other words, until I get another "undisclosed settlement" to shut it down.
Re: Will that water stay in Australia?
Its true, Aussies hate Fosters!
To be fair Tooheys New is pretty much the best beer I've ever tasted so I don't blame them!
Do the government really think your average paedo is searching Bing for kiddyfiddlers.com??
We need to make it so politicians who have no clue about the Internet aren't allowed to be involved in drafting laws/policy concerning its use.
So the plan to invest a mountain of taxpayer cash on a national broadband infrastructure has somehow turned into giving out vouchers so small companies can get a shitty BT connection.
Seems like £90m well spent*
*if you are a BT shareholder
Who gets the cash?!
Can we assume everyone who purchased one of the offending Penguin ebooks will get an even cut of the 75mill?
"Thinner and lighter"
Ditched the wireless charging maybe?
Have they fixed the Transport service so it doesn't have to be bounced every 8 hours?!
Could that possibly be the fruit based network that has raised prices 3 times within my current 2 year contract to fund their "amazing" new 4g network which doesn't cover anywhere outside the M25?
It's surprising how many besadmin accounts I've seen that had domain admin rather than the local admin permissions it actually needs!
"Biggest investment to date"
Sooooo, does this mean they spent more on some shiny new laptops than they've spent on upgrading the infrastructure they were given pretty much for free by us taxpayers?!
1.5 billion impressions logged
Reller also said Redmond has logged “1.5 billion impressions of customers using the home screen.”
What's an "Impression" and how have they logged it!?
Rather worrying if you ask me....maybe I should have read the EULA a bit more carefully!
This is exactly what I was going to say...
Surely it can't be denied that the iPad now has a monopoly on tablets, why are they not forced to show a browser choice pop up the same as MS are?!
Re: Good job you didn't ask them to close a TIFKAM app...
Yeah, took me a while to figure that one out too!!
Charm bar thing....
Did they not get to see the video when you log in, that tells you (about 10 times) to move the mouse into a corner??
Re: Virgin....Y U no fix it??
it's only a divx avi file. Ive got quite a few of them, and all the others (downloaded before the new firmware) play fine... Anything I've downloaded since then has the issue
The fugly new GUI that seems designed to hide everything except changing the SSID is pretty annoying as well!
Virgin....Y U no fix it??
Superhub is a massive POS.
It still randomly drops the wireless connection (every 20 minutes) resets itself to factory defaults whenever it feels like it, kicks me off Xbox live after about 45 minutes game time....
Tried downloading a tv episode yesterday and the first 2 mins play fine then it goes into slow motion, I thought I'd grabbed a dodgy torrent, tried another copy.....same thing! This would explain it!!
Time to dig out the old buffalo wzr and try modem only mode.
Does this new firmware stop the super(??)hub factory resetting itself whenever it feels like it?!
That's been really pissing me off!!!
Well, I'm glad someone has finally brought up this Kony business... Him and his brother Hamsung have been getting away with selling knock-off TVs for years now.
Re: Re: Re: Do writers dream of electric royalties?
I believe Team America had it right:
"....Dicks also fuck assholes: assholes who just want to shit on everything. Pussies may think they can deal with assholes their way. But the only thing that can fuck an asshole is a dick, with some balls"
15 Million in losses....
So 1 Download = 1 lost sale?
What a load of bollocks
Apparently its just the BBC World Service stuff on that rubbish MSN video player thing, not the actual iPlayer....GRRRR
4OD will be a good addition though
.....47 million smart meters for 26 million homes.
So they've ordered 21 million too many??
"By law, retailers have to give licencing your name and address when you purchase equipment capable of receiving TV signals."
Bought a new TV from Comet (I needed one quickly!!) got a letter from TV Licensing within 2 days basically saying "pay us £140 now, or we'll fine you £3000"
How do they know i didnt just buy it to play Xbox on?
More than half of new signups opt for 30Mbit/s....
I thought 30 Mbit/s was the minimum a new customer could get from Virgin nowadays?
This would explain why i've been having to manually enter Exchange Proxy settings all morning! BPOS sounded like such a good idea at the time....
Various studies and reports from Anti-Virus firms suggest we all REALLY REALLY REALLY need Anti-Virus on our phones.
Didn't see that one coming!
No Honeycomb on Vega you say.....?
Not exactly legit, but i flashed it last night and it is AWESOME (Still an Alpha release)!!!
