@AC re syncing

Agreed, we've got hundreds of 8.1 tablets syncing OneDrive. My only thought is that perhaps the personal, rather than business, edition didn't sync?

Start Menu

What is it with people and the start menu. I use Win7 and almost never use it. Any apps I use are either on the taskbar (frequently used ones) or less frequent ones on the desktop. Once in a blue moon ones are on the start menu.

We've just been doing a Win8 build for a tablet rollout and I haven't missed it at all (and the only Metro apps we're using in that are the camera and Reader)

I was quite lucky....

...despite us about to roll out over nearly 1500 tablets they run full 8.1 so I couldn't get any further than 2.1(?). Still need a mobile device strategy for them though

BBC hacks – tweet the crap out of the news, cries tech-dazzled Trust

BBC and Twitter

I stopped following BBC World recently when they retweeted about one tweet every 5 minutes from their correspondent covering the Pistorius trial. I was not the only one who replied saying if we wanted to know about it we'd follow the actual journalist.

re subscription channel

I'd happily pay a small fee to have BBC World - at least the news on it (before BBC Breakfast) is actually news and not a dressed up promotion engine for an actor's latest film/novelist's latest book/musician's latest album.

Re: Repeats...

I'm having that issue where I need things repeating - there were a couple of weeks where there were 4 simultaneous things I wanted to record at 9pm. Luckily one was repeated and 1 was available on iPlayer.
