Re: Colour copies of passports illegal ?
Indeed it is - had to do some research for travel money bureaus and scanners recently http://www.hmso.gov.uk/copyright/guidance/gn_20(old%20format).htm
Re: Why bother?
@AC - and POSReady 2009 (which is based on XP Embedded) till 2019.
What worries me..
... is that people actually notice by-lines so know who she is. Downvotes ensue - I'm pre celebrity generation so don't really care about fame.
Re: Good luck
What sad person could possibly have downvoted your post?
Re: Paradox resolved
God, wish you hadn't pointed out it had a web site, what a load of absolute stylistic crap!
And people diss the Surface Pro price
When it has an i5 processor so can do real work

If you haven't touched any MS stuff since XP what makes you think you are qualified to judge what it's like now? At least I've touched Firefox 18 and think it's shit.
doesn't work for me and the language pack won't download...
Re: Samsung took over the Nokia market
Nokia destroyed? 85m phones shipped worldwide in Q4 as against 43.4m Apples.
Sorry - had to feed the troll
Re: So the IE10 'Pre-Release' for Win7 passed you guys by then ?
I've been running it since the date it became available and would never go back to 9.
Give me the down voters
OK, I'm not a power user but I've been running 2013 for a couple of months (RTM version) and I definitely prefer it to 2010. A lot cleaner looking and some bits I've been bemoaning for years (tables in Word for example) greatly improved.
Re: Family Friendly
As cigarette machines are now behind the bar, if they exist at all - and it shows when you were last in a pub, the over 16 sign doesn't tend to exist
Not outside cities methinks? I don't know anyone on it, actually I do know one person in Bristol

Re: Amazon at least has a perceived upside to the consumer (vs Starbucks)

Re: So much for Bing
I use it for maps quite often as it has an Ordnance Survey overlay so you can not only see footpaths but also work out which route a road actually takes in the country rather which is impossible on country roads on Google.
"with typo's" Not a possessive methinks.
Been using it for about 3 weeks now and I must be unusual in that I like the uncluttered UI - have seen people complaining about it on the web. As I'm not using anything in the cloud it doesn't seem much different to 2010

Re: Does it mean IE10
Well it hasn't on mine
Someone I work with (who goes through gadgets like no tomorrow) got his Mini, thought the resolution was crap and made £40 profit at CEX - then bought and iPad4
Re: The writing has been on the wall for years
Don't know where your PC world is, but the one in Taunton is utterly depressing. Linear footage utilisation is so low it's unbelievable and makes it just look like an empty warehouse.
The South West of England now has weather with the weather app.
For our HO infrastructure of around 2500 clients over a couple of diverse locations MS said we'd get away with 1 additional server (we use WSUS on a different server but don't use MS for DNS/DHCP etc.)
Re: mainstream support
Not completely true: We've rolled out a solution in 160 sites that was 2008 as the app is only 32 bit. The app is in scope for PCI and we normally have a 10 year life on it so the extension to 2020 is really handy. IE6 - again, not quite right as Windows Embedded POSReady 2009 (based on XP embedded) is supported till 2019 (another bonus for a 10 year in-scope PCI project) so notionally IE6 should be supported on that - ok we use IE8 - but even with us that's over 6000 devices.
Was No current plans...
.... now future. yeay!
No, I don't like jumping off tall buildings but, in reality, there's b all that's on my phone that I would shed a tear over if it went AWOL. A few photos (if I'd really cared about them they'd be on a NAS somewhere) and some contacts that wouldn't be that difficult to get again.
Re: But no Paperwhite
Not sure how an upvote would be interpreted (Good thing they aren't importing it, or agreeing with the comment), but I agree with the comment. And they won't ship it to a UK address. Any thoughts as to whether there would be a problem getting .co.uk books on it (and no Calibre/DRM free/why would you pay comments please, I'm quite happy to spend less than £10 a month for books I actually want)?
The PITA with 2012 and VMware
is that it doesn't appear to run on ESXi 4.x (and we've only just managed to get our infrastructure up to that) - tried to install it last week on a 4.1 standalone host and it errored with a screen that wasn't viewable.Looks as though we'll have to wait till we upgrade to 5.1 then
