about time too but
I'm sure that they will find a way to make up the losses in other ways.
Its just business Jim, but not as we know it.
Apparently most of these, 'enter the competition or fill in the survey' with the offer that you will be put into a draw and possibly win a prize, never give a prize out.
Using the freedom of information act a survey found that even some of the bigger well known legitimate company are involved in this practice.
Re: Big, dumb and tasty
Yes but glad I never bumped into one in the dark.

It gets even better.

while flying a friend down to Gloucester
He had forgotton to switch off his mobile and as we were decending to join the circuit to land his phone went off. The caller tried 7 times including on our final approach.
It was a distraction, it did interfere with the radios and caused interference in my headset.
However, the aircraft a Piper Warrior was over 25 years old. I would have thought electronics have come a long way since....
Re: bbc iplayer
I get upto 8Mbs at night 1am until around 9.15am then it drops, but I think that is down to Orange it BT.
I'm a cheapskate, though I do get unlimited broadband for 4.99 a month. I suppose its a way to try and get me to spend more.
Surprisingly this did not happen until BT upgraded the exchanges to fibre last year.
I sometimes wonder if BT secretly save all their bandwidth for their own customers.
Re: What kind of div would stand in the rain...
Well they are now being sold on for over £1000!!!!!
Order one on the Apple site now and the wait is only two weeks. My delivery date 5th April.
What mug is stupid enough to buy it for that price.
In HD is impossible between
10 in the morning and 2am.
True actually, and you'll see that I don't rant about it. There are going to be several providers for debit credit card use on the iPad.
Free card reader and 25p or 0.25% per transaction charge. Auto receipt by sms or email. Compare that to £40 per month hire of mobile card reader, data charges and 2.75% transaction charge. In less than a year it pays for itself. I'm better off and the customer gets better value.
As to being a fanbois, well maybe you should grow up. Android is fragmented, there was also a lack of compatability with my accounting software, which apple has.
I'm definitely no fanbois and this is purely a business decision. I'm going to trial it, if it is as good as it claims, all my reps will get one.
Last night delivery 5 April.
First iPad I will have had WiFi 4G 32
To use as a card terminal for my business saving me extortionate charges hiring a mobile card machine.
Why Apple, unlike the others the OS is not fragmented. Updates will arrive and it will work with the least possible hassle.
You call the iPad rubbish? Sounds like sour grapes, yes they are expensive, maybe too expensive but they are very very good.
I really like Android, in fact I use an an android phone but a tablet for business I have had to look at the ipad because and purely because of the Android has such a fragmented OS
I would agree, however having just ordered the new iPad but for purely practical reasons. As a business owner I hope to use it for mobile card payments later this year. This will cut out having to hire mobile credit card machines, a saving of over £400 a year.
Android, which I love, is too fractured with too many versions and at times, late updates if at all.
At this time Apple is more stable for this one version, one update etc.
Still I feel terribly guilty I have been seduced by the darkside.

Re: yes but (@LarsG)
I was just pointing something out, giving an opinion, yet you suddenly start pontificating.
I understand the need for invention, but to be realistic there has to be and end result that is of benefit. Invention for inventions sake goes nowhere.
If it take 20 tonnes of coal or 1000 cubic metres of gas to produce 1 cubic metre of hydrogen then they would be on to a loser.
Again I refer you to the batteries in the Prius. Smug Holywood types love them, but the over all cost to the environment is huge. You'd have less effect on the environment driving a Ferrari to work every day.
Re: yes but (@LarsG)
This isn't about cost in the financial sense though it has a bearing.
Huge investment must have a return, either monetary or benefit in kind such as environment.
Science is littered with great ideas that have no value or no application.
Just like the Prius mentioned, you might feel amid and superior driving one but consider the cost of making it, which far out strips any Eco benefit.
Re: yes but
Rather a pedantic reply to a valid point.
At what point does it become viable?
If it costs more to produce than its benefits?
Is even worse, full of middle class know it alls.
Re: If he brings an creatures back...
I'd be extremely unhappy if I was a deep water creature being brought back by him.
THIS GUY IS....
After your votes!
I know, maybe a little to cynical but he is doing the right thing.
Re: Lost a few round here too
Expensive compared to online, I saved £150 buying a Sony HD recorder online rather than in the shop.
I did look at it in the shop though, same model same make just cheaper.
They need to be competitive.
Sad though to see so many shops close.

No just idiot truckers.
Re: Is it one way so people on their way home
It was the last refuge of peace and quite from having to listen to unimportant people making unimportant phone calls thinking they are important.
Re: So did the judge actually say...
No he said....
Kinder, kinder, gehen sie jetz nach hause sonst gebe ich dir eine paar hinter deine Ohren.
Roughly translated go home or you'll get a clip round the ears.

NOW AN IMPORTANT
Senator has taken up the case can we expect a probe into privacy?
I'm sure the millions and billions of lobby funds available between Apple AND Google will be sufficient to make this problem disappear.
THE LAST REFUGE OF
peace from mobile phones now ripped away from us because....
Some people are sooooo important they can't survive being disconnected for 15 minutes!
Re: Not surprised but
Oh and finally, how many people allow their children to use the phone?
Most probably, so there should be a presumption.
Re: Not surprised but
Permissions cannot differentiate between a 7 year old and an adult. However the phone user should be able to tell the app or advertisers that the device may be used by children.
This is a serious omission, the onus should be on the developer and advertiser to state what ads will be served up, and for the user to opt in or out.
If a porn site or naked girls etc ad is served up to a minor it is an offence pure and simple. The owner of the phone has no control over it as it may literally appear out of the blue.
downloading apps that need apparent permissions that have no relevance to what the app is all about.
Now I have no apps!
This I think will remain a problem until we have the choice on permissions on the download page.
Each app should come with a 'tick' the box for what you will allow and this should have no effect on the app.
Embarrassing as that ugly girl your mates caught you kissing.
Re: Legalised cartel
The election promise was that small and medium size businesses would have an opportunity to tender for Government contracts.
The reality is that they are all given to large facilities management companies to do with as they wish.
The private company that lost the 'taking prisoners to court' contract immediately gained the contract to run the facilities in all the court buildings. This removed all the locally held contracts with local businesses.
You rub my back and I'll rub yours.
At full whack the battery will last......
WHY DO YOU NEEDS PICS?
peeing outside is a very well known French pastime.
Why the surprise?
Why is he complaining when his neighbors see him do it all the time?
It's a Way of life in France.
Anything to save the battery on this one. Quadcore, how big will the battery have to be?
