Re: It's all about the money
Partly true re CE. the Mark is equivalent to the BS kite mark of yesteryear.But the CE means nothingin itself its the test documentation and spec reports Cof C's and D of C's which back this up and is only applicable in the european community.
Non european companies does not have to comply nor mark its products CE certified but do so they can sell in europe. as most people will now notice no CE mark in might be dodgy. but the mark doesnt mean that the relavant supporting tests and documents are actually in situ if coming from outside europe.
TUV are one of the european test centres and trhere mark should back up the CE mark. Before some one jumps in yes i know there was an issue and fine a regarding fake tits in france.
It cost more for the police operation for such a small return. Completely pointless hardly a multimillion pound empire but of course this is a deterent.
Charge the same as Apple IOS or linux for an OS and its no longer viable to counterfiet simples.
Keep money grabbing the way MS do and its lucrative.
No fanbois here just simple common sense. where did my Tax money go again.
K9????????? - I always hated that programme its worse than crossroads.
I must be missing a trick.
one keyboard ive had years
one mx1000 laser mouse ok expensive at the time but beat RSI
Desk and chair
oh and a telephone i cant use.
and a pedastal ive had for 13 yrs and refuse to part with cause its full of my crap.
Roundabouts Vs traffic lights
a couple of fundamental flaws with the roundabout Idea, Though I applaud the Thinking.
Brits cant use roundabouts well certainly not in Basingstoke or Newbury.
Traffic planners don't know how to set them out nowadays either.
Traffic lights are a free for all when the lights turn amber now so floor it Batman seems to be order of the day.
And Cyclists ignore the rules on both.
was that with new or old batteries:
anyone remember the star trek thingy
where they encountered voyager 1. I remeber its launch etc and i was 9 then. I remeber them showing the disc and all that stuff to try and tell however finds it where it came from.
Means no one watched it first time around until it hit some other cable channel.
Wasn't as cracked up a\s it was made sorry. and hope it doesn't go the same way as RD.
Re: What IS new
My question? Is the lack of innovation a direct reflection on all the patent suites. i.e no one left to copy from as they now need to be whiter than white to preserve there dimishing reputation.
Just saying. any else noticed!
wasnt this at beaulieu
im sure this was on display at beulieu some time ago. i am not so sure there was only one made i vaguely remember reading somewhere three used for filming. could be wrong.
550k for a functioning submarine doesnt sound to bad, but 550k for a non functioning esprit nah to much.but some one will like it for what it is I would like to think its reached its maximum price now though.
still got my deck
still got my yamaha deck from 25years ago. admitted its in the loft with a whole load of cassettes.
but loathe to get rid god knows why ill never use it again, Also got two vcrs up there again which dont get used.
iffy on your current career
Not good for your current career. as everyone assumes your looking for work. employers for some reason dont like that.
Plus got fed up of being offered non existant jobs by agencies trawling for CV's
Dont do FB either now. not interested who had what for tea. and whats happening on corrie.
Uhmm So a jammer jams said frequency which is restricted. So why are the GPS transmitters being fitted operating on this frequency range. surely that would have the same effect.as the jammer
in the CBers used burners etc which played havoc with TV And radios etc. I used to play in this field and worked in it twenty odd yrs ago,
Sounds iffy to me
Capri , Ultimate Chav car
No chance the Ford Capri long expired and crushed way before Chavs where even thought of.
My guess is FHM (the Chav mag) got confused between Capri and Corsa.
Which we all know is the ultimate aspiration for chav teens or Seat Ibiza for the slightly more well off chav working at Maccy Ds.
hmm not exactly truthful
No one else notice
How do we know the phones still worked. neither was switched on and some cracks are so fine youd not notice them.until the screens lit.
completely pointless tat. just some tart trying to sell insurance (that you get with a decent bank account anyway).
how do we know the apple survived better or that the sammy gave up the ghost earlier neither where working anyway.
itll still break. gorilla glass aint that good. My S3 has gorilla glass and guess what it smashed when dropped. however i want one
Looks like an outdated hyundai Lantra. which ever way you look at it. 41 mpg no thanks my beemer diesel does more than that on a bad day and is quick enough for me at 7secs 0-62.
This is back to american cars coming over here. Someone will buy it to be different then at trade in wonder why its only worth 300 quid. this thing will depreciate faster than a five yr old mondeo
And the interior looks decidely yuck and typical; nissan/ renault. with lots of buttons and sticky out bits.
Re: How much worse can it get?
never had an android unit crsh yet and im on my third. i just dont load rubbish apps on there which as usual are the cause of instability.
Re: Maybe, but ... (Laptops for wireless)
But your vaio Z is not running ios 10 is it.
Im no fan bois but id never go back to a windows laptop love my macbook air. it does everything i need fast and far quicker than most comparable windows machines and easier to configure printers and such like to. the only issue is BThome hubs dont like airplay. So i use my old Fujitsu lappy for that with media player
Ive recently got cause its that or nothing here, Virgin should be had as theyve not put any new fibre in since 1997 in the south. so how can they complain when there services are not even available here. ASA havent upheld that argument and i get 39.6 meg thank you very much before i was only offered 300k by virgin.
12ax/at7 or ecc83
anyone got a large stock of ECC83 and 84 or 12at/ax7 can make a killing here as there the mainstay of input transformers in valve guitar amps and reverb units. Big demand nowadays for valves my friends are far from dead in the outside world
I just bought the 24 inch version literally saturday. for my bedroom. So far superb picture but sounds a bit iffy. how ever fine with audio out through my little dennon all in one. so im happy.
Wouldnt bother with the rest of the crap.
I saw this last week when visiting london on a day out, it didnt occure to me that it had anything to do with the new sammy. why would it being the shop was shut and empty, and i wouldnt use p4u anyway.
Re: Corner shops not in the same market as big mail order
Also i wouldnt be suprised if when you order a dvd /cd from a corner shop there ordering from indigo starfish and adding a mark up for the privelidge.
and agree with most comments here 110m is less than the mod pay on vets bills a year.
Itll fall to pieces as soon as you put your foot down and wind in the hedge at the first hint of damp weather just like its predecessor the renault 17 turbo.
we were forever pulling them out of hedges when father was on recovery. it rained itll be a renault in the hedge
Torque steer and 150 is the limit in reality no such issues with RWD.
ford following again
As usual ford are following everyone else eventually all the optional tech such as road sign recognition remote sensing gadgetry self parking etc have all been about for years on german marques such as vw group,BMw and merc. its just the price for this tech has come down in price as par the course and now ford think its cheap enough to fit.
Fail when the same specced mondeo is the same price as a 3 series bmw or passat. and yet is under powered and less economical than the mondeo.
I like the idea of ford and there cars drive very well. but not at the same price as a bmw. and no i dont want the bottom of the range model thank you. Ill take an equivalent.
Iffy sound for 120 quid are you kidding. 50 to 80 sennheissers will trash these. how can they get 70% if they sound iffy. in essence 30 % would suffice in the real world.
Tdk are seen as cheap make nowadays no street cred anymore since the demise of good cassettes.
got DAB in my carReally not worth all the hassle as radio stations are limited outside london. and what is there is full of adverts during the day. planet rock was the only reason i got it but soon found that having it pumped at me all day soon got repetitive I wouldnt pay for a gadget that works occasionally due to signal dropouts and as for the ghastly aerial and extra widgets and boxes to be fitted im surprised 75% more like 50% at best
hmm not quite
Where is the new bmw 1 series beats the focus hands as all the gizmo items listed are optional for The BMW beats the focus hands down on kit, MPG power CO2 emmisions and handling.
And dont forget the beemer will be worth 60 % plus in 3 yrs the focus will be 5k at a push. and base price is not much more than the focus for the 116D SE
It takes over 100 years to grow a mature oak to the required standard i know where i was brought up there are a load which where planted for ship building in the 1700s and never used as the demand disspeared due to the arrival of the iron clads.
And any trees old enough will be protected by a preservation order so we will be importing from india.
So how come VM tivo then
Its not a new box just a software upgrade and then theres the small fact its useless to 90% of the country.
So as a service no its not up to the mark. Guessing VM paid more turnips for a glowing outdated by 10 yrs product which failed in the states in 1999.
Camera quality ??????
Sorry to say the photo samples look washed out and flat and grainy but nowhere in the article is that emphasised just spouting that great its an 8mp Camera whoop de doo. no good if the quality is this poor which is typical of HTC phones.
Had two never get another ill wait for the S3 thanks
no surprise there then
We have one of there office right next door.
And believe it or not its staffed by probably 90% or more Chinese origin. there are virtually no caucaseans working in there.
Twinhead adopted the same philosophy recruiting only from chinese communities in the early 90's.
How can 12 be an "r" most are just pointless anyway. still therll be appearing on a corsa and peugeots 208 near you soon.
theres a surprise
Saw this coming two years ago. Like the Wii which now sits under the telly gathering dust was a good idea at the time. I am not poking at just the ipad i think the whole fondleslab thing is flawed due to the lack of a decent usable keyboard.
ill stick with my FJ lifebook P8130 for a while longer.
not for me
I have a very nice and very expensive hifi. i love my music as long as they release back catalogue stuff fine. not interested in new stuff as there is only about 1% worth a damn.
My expensive CD player doesnt like ripped CDS so thats out and not overly keen on the ipod as my main source.
They drop CDS i stop buying there music i am sure the artists will have a say when they see there revenues drop.
I like tangible. What happens when my pc dies / ipod / Backup dies i lose my digital music Still got my cds for the insurance company if we have a fire etc.
I am guessing the removal of there OBE will be forth coming. hope it was worth it and boy shed have to pay me, shes looks rough.
But then i wouldnt by her overpriced alibaba sourced trash thats what 14 year olds do.
and another reason
Not to buy a PS3 no matter how
Went in yesterday
Looking for a particular item so pooped into my sony store. Dunno why complete waste of time. Issues arise when products go wrong to as they will only send back for repair not replace even straight out of the box.
Wont buy Sony again. When my TV surround sound and playstation die thats it.
However I prefer there MP3 players to crap pods. Audio quality beats apple hands down.
As the S2 is on most tarriffs as free phone where as the crapple is contract plus handset charge i dont see the S2 as emptying that many pockets as quick as apple. Also its better phone go figure.
Try both. Then youll see and take the blinkers off.
as usual we get stuffed
Outskirts of basingstoke still get a laughable half meg at best and no plans to upgrade.
Why not tackle the really bad areas firsat and bring everyone up to the minimum recommended by the goverment of 2meg and ill be happy
No TV on demand etc for me
I work for fujitsu too
My colleagues who are in the Unite union do not even know about these strikes therefore its safe to assume they were not balloted.
Fujitsu employees have had a 3 yr pay freeze and no bonus's to most employees either.
Most of the union mebers are warehouse staff not site staff so wont affect the customers too much. Every one i know in this organisation would not do something to harm customer relationships and t would be unheard of for a long time employee to strike or picket a customer site.
Those who will are generally Tupe'd from the civill service who couldn't care a less as long as they keep there pensions and bonuses etc. seen and met to many to count. then bitch how good it was beofre yet this is there former employer who screwed them over. go figure.
a lot of the problems we have are not generated by the private sector but are the first reactions following the goverment cuts and the fact theres little to money around or new contracts being awarded at the moment.
Eh labour introduced this
and set out the way it will operate. so the whole idea was a spin to make labour look like they hadn't lost the plot and where trying to be in touch with its electorate.
They probably hoped it would quietly die after the election.
Shame as in essence it was a good idea and mean't we didnt need to try and convice our MP's that our causes where true and just and held a majority support .
