Even if I win the Euromillions ten weeks in a row, I'm still not stooping to this level of conspicuous consumption.
"Apple marketing man Phil Schiller"
Is it only me that finds this amusing?
Reply-all should require more input
Reply-all is fine, but it is proved time and time again that it's used inappropriately.
I think all email clients should require that when you click "reply-all" you have to individually say "yes" to each of the email addresses that you are responding to.
I can't think of a valid reason to reply-all to more than 20 people, so doesn't seem unworkable.
Re: He makes Chilli Jam !
Chilli Jam is finally going mainstream - Sainsburys make a pretty good one that can be found in a cubic glass far next to the pickles and suchlike.
Re: just TWO people?
I have never understood this either.
Even if you assume that each complainant represents a thousand others who shared their view but were too lazy to do anything about it, that is still only three-thousandths of a percent of the population.
Also, I thought the ad was not bad.
Wow! Just wow! That is genuinely outrageous behaviour.
Thank god I uninstalled FB's slow, cr@ppy app. They deserve a LOT of abuse for this.
What about traintimes.org.uk?
This site works for me - whether on a PC or a smartphone - no pointless graphics, just information. I believe that it scrapes all the info from the National Rail website, so is just as up-to-date.
You can bookmark your favourite stations, departure boards or the "get me home" function as (eg) http://traintimes.org.uk/nearest/london
Re: And wait for the....
The "home user who needs to resize and crop a picture" should use Irfanview.
Actually, everyone should use Irfanview (for the things that it is best at).
I was behind some boring hatch the other day and spotted a decal on the back with the now-familiar Nurburgring lap shape.
However, just as I was preparing to sigh I noticed that underneath the text had been changed to "Notbothering".
Made me chuckle, anyway.
I agree 100%. It is wholly irrational for anyone, under any circumstance, to be able to charge your phone bill for tens or hundreds of pounds. There should be a low cap for one-off charges (a fiver?) and an even lower cap for these scams where your phone gets charged repeatedly for rubbish like ring-tones, wallpaper or horoscopes*.
* For the avoidance of doubt, I haven't been robbed for these things, but my son was unfortunately sufficiently naive to be caught out. Until, having put a tenner on his PAYG account I told him to check it *15*minutes*later* and found that three (!) £2.50 charges had been taken immediately. I phoned the network and told them they could refund the money or give me a PAC code.
What I *actually* want to see
Is a smartphone with a sensible battery life.
The (absence of any) useful battery life on my otherwise pretty cool smartphone is pissing me off so much that I'm seriously considering a £10 Tesco dumbphone as my next handset.
I know what you mean and share your cynicism, but the same suggestions-of-friends-they-couldn't-possibly-know-about happens on (inter alia) Facebook as well and you have to assume that it is as a result of the *other* person letting FB have access to their email contact list. Don't you?
What a crock
Is someone going to pop round and sprinkle some fairy-dust on it as well?
That the link immediately below the comments link is:

Orange sucks hardest
My company mobile/blackberry is on Orange and the network is deeply useless - in terms of both coverage and the late voicemail notifications you referred to.
I have used all of the other networks at one time or another and, while they may not be excellent, they are all less sh*t than Orange.
"Dinham ... is involved with the Baptist Church"
So what? His religion obviously didn't stop him from nicking the cash in the first place, so why should I care whether/where he is praying now?
If I lived near their theatre . . .
. . . .I'd visit purely because of that ad / blog post. Just excellent.
Battery life on smartphones is ridiculous. I have a (lowly) Wildfire, and am staggered at what it can do, but the idea that less-than-a-day of heavy(ish) use is acceptable is just stupid. I'd rather it was 2mm thicker and had a battery twice the size.
On a related note, can anyone put to rest for me the question of whether killing applications with task managers actually has an impact (as comments seem to be evenly split)?
