End of the world?
Thank God I won't have to pay my tax bill....
They will of course only go for the ones they don't like, Israel will be safe, the UK will be stuffed.
Better watch out for malware and viruses, the lid might close at a most inopertune time.....
Or it might harvest your 'information' to sell at at a later date.
If an Iranian finds a spelling error in his work it is obviously down to the Great Satan America hacking his pencil and paper.
Paranoid or what?
I haven't bothered downloading Google Maps, I find it more fun using Apple Maps on my iphone as everyday it brings a surprise!
Like private 'vanity plates' on cars it's just soooo Chav.
Believe this lot over anything, if they walked in and told me it was raining outside I would check for myself.
They use this as a softening up technique, then backtrack but the real terms and conditions will be softened to what they wanted in the first place.
Its a sales technique, hit them with a high price, then offer a discount, only the discount never existed, it was always going to be sold at the 'discount price' anyway.
I say f**kem and watch them bleed during the exodus.
Is this exactly what EE is trying and doing to us in the UK?
accounts of the lives of people who think there every move is of interest to the rest of us when in fact they spout inane, useless, meaningless, miserable, boring, brain destroying drivel in an attempt to justify their self important role in society.
Their motto, 'I tweet therefore I am,' gives them justification for foisting their misery on the rest of us.
Re: How would they know?
Yes but you still have to follow the law if the land.
Do you think you would get away with nudity on a beach in Saudi because it happens to be legal on a beach in Germany?
Is it ok to gamble on the Internet while living in New York when the site is hosted in the UK?
I'd be investigating
How so much money was made from a failed company and if this was already the business plan when they bought Comet.
Bit harsh 10 years
Especially when you consider all the positive publicity she got out of it!
Doing it for the consumer?
Yeah right, you mean dong it for the bottom line and profit you mean.
Their own Internet, unplugged from the rest of the world!
Now that's exactly how to keep the peasants under control.
China produce so many mobile phones, every shape and size, 3 sim, 4 sim phones with technology to match, 1,2,3,4 and now probably 5 core mobiles. They are all fit for purpose and if you want an iphone get a copy at a tenth of the price.
That's why no ones bothered anymore. Oh and you might just get turned down for a job if you have one.
I would like to know
How many times the banks have known about this kind of thing but have never bothered telling the customer. The onus is on the customer to find and then prove the loss.
Now that it is harvest time, all your information can move and be shared by Facebook at faster speeds.
She is obviously an unlikable person that she so annoyed the jury they stuffed her three time.
Lady, get over here and have your case hear in a UK court, it will be a £5,20 fine per song but with the added bonus of getting a free flight home when being extradited. You can then claim in humane treatment and live happily for the rest of you life on benefits and have all you housing costs paid for!
It was always going to be this way,
A simple "fu*k you, there's no way you gonna get your hands on the net" prior to wasting all this time energy and expense would have been better.
With their reputation I can't see any of them actually spending any money on it even if it is subsidised.
Microsoft know there will be so many returns when people realise that it doesn't match up to IOS
Or Android that they don't have a plan in place of how to recycle the unwanted items.
USA, "we own it f**k off"
IT(GOVERNMENT x TAXPAYERS MONEY) = DISASTER (100xOVERSPEND)
GOVERNMENT = COMPLETE F***KUP
A simple equation that like the many famous equations is a constant. It is so now, it will be so, forever so.
You know, I know, there are people who want to own the net and in controlling the net want us to see what they want us to see and not what we want to see.
Shit, it's already happened....
Re: Thank God
At least living in my leafy northern county with its intermittent mobile signal, wifi, 3G and limited broadband when I do take my mobile phone out of my pocket in the middle of the town to make a call I have a 95% less chance of being mugged for it.
Re: Let me fix part of that for you
Pretty much describes all of them. Deserved up vote.
Rules being changed to stick one right up where the sun don't shine.
Being flippant is not always the best way to make friends but he does have a point.
This has only been foisted on London, whose population I have nothing in common with and lack any sense of sympathy for.
Living in the North has its benefits, we still use real money, have poor Internet access and variable strength mobile phone signals. The fresh air is an added bonus as is conversation when shopping or travelling on a bus.
I will not be moving house for this.
Decision already predetermined and made.
The decision had already been made and predetermined by Facebook before they asked users their opinions.
It was a bit like the elections held in Iran.
"Belize Prime Minister Dean Barrow had a more prosaic explanation: "I don't want to be unkind to the gentleman, but I believe he is extremely paranoid, even bonkers."
It's not often you get a Prime Minister with such insight.
Re: At least
So you bring it up? Good on you!
Obviously some nasty bug they want rid of before the world finds out.
Kids aps, I never download them if there are in ap purchases, or where they produce ad banners, you'd be surprised what can appear.
Kids aps should not harvest any information. Why would they need to know my 3 year old is using my tablet, what kind of ads could they possibly want to show her?
Blame blame blame
Rely on a sat nav, even in this country satnav are not infallible.
The weak point of every satnav is not the programming or the the operating system is the brain dead human using it. How many times have drivers followed a satnav yet ignored all road signs, safety advice and got stuck, driven into rivers or canals and even the sea, gone the wrong way, got stuck in tunnels, gone on to railway lines and even frozen rivers?
And yet if they had opened their eyes..... I always carry a map as back up, no batteries to run out and no signal to lose. Don't blame Apple, Tom Tom, Garmin or any of the others, blame the idiot using it.
Is the first choice phone of the Chav, as jogging pants and Burberry hats are their first choice in fashion wear. Will Win8 phones take over this important crown.
For the first few years all will be well. New Government new legislation introduced, DNA data base given to private firm for storage. Police demand access to data base as a matter of course. Data no longer anonymised 'for the general good'. Private firm enters agreement with Government agencies to share data with all agencies including local authorities. New legislation introduced to sell data to any firm that lodges a request to see it.
IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE?
That was the name of that really awful Sci-fi film that bombed.
'BUT if you have nothing to hide then why worry?'
Is the usual retort of those in favour of the legislation. So lets get real, they want it so they can monitor your every move.
They want to know where you go, who you see, who you talk to, what you wear, your sexual preferences, how much you have in the bank, they want you on a DNA database, who your children are and more and more and more.
Get the picture? Information is power and power will corrupt. Do you really think it is OK if they are allowed to know so much about you they are in effect sleeping with you in bed?
Power and corruption, to keep you under control. Still got nothing to hide?
Does anyone use these germ infested urine sprayed phone booths anymore........... To make a call?
Or am I mistaken and thinking of our good old phone boxes in the UK?
