TalkTalk confesses: Scammers have data about our engineers' visits to your home

Inventor of the Marmite Laser

Re: Yes but...

In TalkTalk's case, not having a call centre at all may improve the service enormously.

Integrity? I doubt Dido has even heard of it.

Adblock Plus blocked from attending ad industry talkfest

Inventor of the Marmite Laser

Funnily enough

According to the IAB's rather garish website, there are "Still a few seats left" so it looks like AdBlock can go ahead and rebook - unless IAB's stance is no more than a fit of pique.

And the site seens to work with AdBlock set. I rather hope that may change.

As I observed elsewhere in this illustrious mag

What happened to Duty of Care?

Talk Talk is (supposed to be) a professional company operating in the IT arena and, as such, should have been perfectly well aware of the risks when they specifically decided not to encrypt data..

They DID think about it, didn't they?

You can keep your microaggression button. Nothing less than Megaaggression and the goodly twatting of a Turtle Necked Twat with a good and beefy baseball bat will suffice.

Budget UHD TVs arrive – but were the 4Kasts worth listening to?

Inventor of the Marmite Laser

Interesting headline

"Budget UHD TVs arrive – but were the 4Kasts worth listening to?"

If all the fuss is about 4k pictures, shirley the question is: "but were the 4Kasts worth WATCHING?"

To which, looking at almost all broadcast TV, the answer is a resounding no.
