Windows 7 overruns NHS Scotland

StrictlySocial

Hit the nail on the head

The cost of moving to O/S would be astronomical. Licensing costs are insignificant compared to the cost of re-writing apps and training staff.

Looks like Marty found some fuel for the DeLorean. Welcome to the future, Marty. In our world, Windows is stable.

Olympics security cockup down to software errors - report

StrictlySocial

It can't just be me who things this cock-up is a blessing in disguise. The fewer G4S staff providing 'security' the better. I have far more trust in the military to provide security over some lazy chav who has never done a days work in their life.

I think this BBC report sums up their staff (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-18856922)

Brits get to fondle Google Nexus 7 slab in just a fortnight

StrictlySocial

When Surface was announced people in my office were talking about it. Not heard a peep about this announcement. I don't want to be either an MS or Apple fanboi, but as somebody else said - meh, another 7" tablet.

Probably going to be the best 7" available for the price/quality, but what people really want is an iPad alternative (good build quality, tablet specific apps, and expandable memory!).

Third of Blighty stuck on snail-speed broadband

OK, how about East Finchley (not on BT 'not quite so infinity' and no VM) getting 3.5. That is 3.5MB in London!

Turn your WinPhone into an Xbox remote

StrictlySocial
Facepalm

...and how many mainstream consumers use XBMC and a dreambox?

WinPho is for the mass market, like iOS. It is designed to work out of the box!

Those iconic headphones

Oh how much I hate Apple for introducing those 'iconic' noise leaking headphones. Bus journeys have never been the same since!

Fugly

I really don't understand how some companies make TVs look so ugly. Calm it down on the logo. Nobody wants a huge 'Cello', aka, 'I bought a cheap and nasty tv' logo stuck on the front.

Nokia snubs UK with N9

Sensible branding excercise

I'm sorry but whether the *nix brigade like it or not, this is a sensible marketing/branding decision. Yes, the phone may be good but Nokia have aligned themselves with MS and therefore it doesn't want to blur the line on what software their phones will be offering.

Btw, for the WinPho haters, it is probably worth you having a play with it, you'll be surprised, you might actually like it!
