Nokia underperforming under Elop was exactly what it was meant to do on the path to becoming a Microsoft acquisition. Nokia was Stephen's initiation into the big chair, he brought home the goods for Microsoft at a reduced price and they were conveniently already a major customer to boot.
NSA PR Opportunity
They could offer a public service to decrypt the data for everyone affected. But would you rather pay the money or let the NSA have your files, oh wait...

600 million out of poverty, erm yeah... Dream on. I think this is one of those rich get richer situations again.

Was this auto generated spam crap or what?
Just a shame Vodafone don't return the favour to the UK!
Would kill your battery using Wi-fi and an always on app for VOIP calls all the time.
Re: O2 & 3 give away femtocells for free.
I am apparently in am excellent Vodafone indoor coverage area. Am I heck. I too had to go near a window to get decent signal and I was fobbed off with the device and sim card being faulty excuse. It is the first time with any network I have had signal problems in the areas I live and work so I felt I had cause to complain.
It was only when I contacted their excellent tech team via twitter that I got any decent customer service and got a Sure Signal for free. I said bluntly I wouldn't pay for it, especially having to use mine and my broadband providers infrastructure to do operate it. I now have full signal throughout the house and I'm really pleased. Shame they can't sort the rest of the network out, I'm still miffed at myself for switching from Virgin just to get my mitts on an S3 quickly, the t-mobile orange combo provided excellent coverage (at least for me) wherever I went.
Moral of the story, if you need a sure signal and don't just want your own personal base station as a new shiny then get in touch with their tech team.
Of course I meant clutching at straws. Shame the mod team don't have time to correct careless mistakes :-)
Reproduced in buffers? That is tenuous at best and the phrase 'cluthing at straws' comes to mind. No doubt the judge will be fooled into thinking that is means enough to switch them off.
Broadcasters should be ashamed of themselves if they can't provide the type of service TV Catchup provides and make money out of it. TV broadcast signals are all around us, so what if i decide to receive it over the Internet via a third party service cos my phone doesn't have a tuner built in.
Stop spending time money and effort going after stuff like this that in the grand scheme of things doesn't matter. TV Catchup is popular because you broadcasters can't come up with a decent alternative.
Locked credit file? Seriously utterly bloody fantastic idea!
"More than a few IT administrators complaining about underfunding should pop down to their local protest and learn a thing or two."
That rings hollow when management expect a professional service to be run on a shoestring and expect everything to work properly. No comparison.
I want to pay for an Internet pipe that gives me whatever I want through it. The day anyone forces me to pay extra for that is the day I stop using the Internet.
Who the hell do these companies think they are. You provide a dumb pipe, get over it!
At least the American's get to see it all in the open and can make a judgment knowing that, rather than it being kept a dirty secret like over here.
Something the majority don't want (DAB) knocked out by something Ofcom refused to deal with. The powers that be get their comeuppance in the end :-)
