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?
Solution to show these control freaks what would happen if the Internet is regulated by Governments...
Cut them all off for six months......
Ever heard of using a proper map?
I'm surprised they get any kind of signal out there.
It's the only
Time I can get a bit of peace, imagine letting all the Chavs who fly have unfettered access to everything from music players and phones etc etc. In the free for all that follows numerous scenes of air rage will be played out.
'Look your Honour, he kept playing the same song, after the 70th time asked politely if he would turn the volume down, he did after all have a portable 150W music player, then he was on the phone 50 times shouting in it 'Guess where I am go on GUESS!'
'So you opened the door and threw him out?'
'Yes your honour...'
'A mercy killing, you aremfreemto go, case dismissed!'
In the heat of the moment the spell checker decides to modify your text and you don't realise.
'Please help I'm at 3 bollocks to you Santa Claus bend over and take it like a germ'
Which should have read 'I live at 3 Kensington Street, Hill Side, Kensington, London...'
Can you see that there might be complications in this?
Or lots of HOAX texts?
2 years for a guest house owner in Scotland to get rid of a review on Trip advisor from a guest who had never been a guest at his property.
A threat of legal action where lies are concerned is justified, however if the review is justified it is up to the business to show some good customer service.
It is rare but occasionally you do get the customer who you bend over backwards for but is still a complete arse.
With their arms tied behind their backs financially by Obamas cut backs and cost cutting, with the Chinese about to build a moon base and go to Mars, no wonder they are running around like headless chickens.
I suppose building a Death Star or nuking the moon is no longer so far fetched.
Ze Germans vill do course haf a more serious and superior machine for ze goal line checking.
It will haf a little dial vid numbers 1-10 called a bias svitch.
It vill says 'to be turned to 10 ven vee play ze Englanders to eliminate ze chance of England goal'
It vill be a no nonsense very serious device jawohl.
This will counter our design which will play 'we won the war, we won the war' every time England score.
That's it, the US has finally shown the world they are a nation of hillbilly nutters, sadly also a nation that takes itself seriously.
'Lets nuke the moon guys, it'll be fun!' And that wasn't a joke either.
Retina display, looking like a work of art, what's not to like about it?
Oh bugger its about Apple isn't it.........
I'm JOHN MCAFEE and they have just poisoned me.
It was in the coffee.
NZ Gov will settle to keep all the stuff about the relationship with the US out of the papers.
I think you will find that New Zealand Judges have bigger balls than the ones over here in the UK and will do what is right rather than be told what to do by those in Government.
Re: To whine or not to whine
RSI, doctors will be required to learn how to sit in the correct posture......
The cynic in me thinks that this maybe a good way to add to the pension pot before early retirement.
There are very few malware problems on Win phones, probably due to the fact that the numbers sold are so low hackers and malware writers don't see profit in it.
Nepotism, just like the Royal Family.
We should not mock.
Working while within his reality distortion field may give him a defence of insanity.
Rather than giving more cities hyper fast broadband how about investing it in areas that doesn't have it?
Spread the spend and all of us in the sticks would get medium fast broadband and we'd all be really happy with that!
Sod the cities.
Does this mean
The fines will be divvied out to everyone that was ripped off?
So where does the money go?
Oh, into the expense accounts of the EC!
