Panasonic microwave lasted 11 years before it died.
Can we expect the same build quality here?
They change your mobile contract from all you can eat to a limited fair use service here in the UK then you should have the right to keep the phone and cancel the contract.
I cannot understand why these thing do not come under unfair contract terms when unilateral decisions are made without negotiation.
No other industry allows it.
THE PRODUCERS AND THE STUDIOS..
scream out over copyright every chance they get,
Yet now we see them sneaking and conniving over how to get round copyright so THEY don't have to pay.
Is this a case of the pot calling the kettle black?
I DON'T CONDONE THE THREATS
but what does he expect ?
Let the press dig deep and we will see what turns up!
Re: They're right...
This is not a surprise is it!
I Stopped downloading apps for the simple reason that the developers are asking for too much information.
Why do they need to know where I am, why do they need access to sms, why do they need to....... Contacts list.
TO COLLECT DATA AND SELL IT ON FOR ADVERTISING
IF EVERYONE stopped downloading apps they would soon change things. I would love to have examples of the information they take off you because, believe me you wouldn't be downloading half what you do now.
EASY TO BLAME THE PARENTS...
if you have no children of your own or you are sitting with a smug self satisfied middle class smile on your face.
That smile won't last because your children will be running rings round you and your tech ability.
However, if the permissions really made it clear and gave an example of WHAT they collected about you then MAYBE we could make a better informed decision.
APPLE RE RE RE RE RE RE RE RE RE RE RE RE RE RE...
will suck the dried blood out of a rotting corpse if they think there has been a patent infringement, they'd even do it hands free while receiving a message.
I've said it before and will say it again.
Please explain why there is not a standard licence price ACROSS THE WORLD?
With todays computers it would be easy enough to build in Exchange rate mechanisms.
So why do you charge us so much more in the UK?
The bait used to lure new customers, "unlimited data".
A few months later they cap it with 'fair use' or reduce or limit the amount you can have, because hidden in the small print, it says they can.
Then we all look shocked and surprised!
The European Court had actually come up with a common sense decision!!!!!
I need to sit down I feel all dizzy.
COULD BE GOOD FOR...
small businesses, should be cheaper than lugging a card machine from location to location,
I'm sure the banks will think up all sorts of charges for the privilege to use it. I bet call cost connections to your account will cost you and they'll charge for you to receive it as well.
A future cash cow for the banks.
Took me from Winsford to Northwich via a road that narrowed to a sunken lane wide enough for a small car to a gated railway crossing that had not been opened in twenty years.
Actually, I didn't get as far as the gate, a coach had got stuck and they were towing it out.
THERE APPEARS TO BE.......
a lot of concern amongst the internet security companies that there will come a time when Apples walled garden will be breached.
The consensus is that it will be breached, the danger will be that many devises have no AntiVirus etc installed because users believe what they use is totally secure.
The breach when it comes could ne catastrophic for many users.
They'll just make more fake 'ipids' and flog them as the real thing, made alongside the real thing in the backroom of the foxconn factory that does not exist.
Apparently the factory has a swimming pool.
I STILL NEED TO USE.....
CAPS, otherwise downvoters won't recognise me.
Re: Double privacy fault
How about a yes or no box on anything that implies or suggests the sharing of private information?
Instead of hiding it on page 6799 out of 8000 pages of terms and conditions.
AS MOST STARS HAVE NO.....
personalities anyway outside of what is given to them in a film script, what would they actually register?
BMW sued over a Chinese company making Fake X5's and lost (top gear if it can be believed) so the rule of law is not quite what it seems in China.
But of course if you speak out...... You get locked up..... For a long time.
It is unlikely to go Apples way.
You in NSW, we are past masters of this crap here in the UK.
Any Gov IT project here over runs, costs billions more than anticipated and fails to work correctly.
The project is usually decided by taking the cheapest quote and then overseen by politians who have no idea, advised by by experts (additional cost) who don't know one end of a USB lead from another and paid for by you who has to fund the short fall.
In many cases, the project fails in delivery, the company involved in the project sacked, then paid out billions in compensation for their failure!
Why are we no longer surprised.
a simple solution to this problem...
Anyone who has been watched looked at investigated checked on THEN
Found innocent, wrong person etc should then be informed that checks have been made on them.
When 6 million people in the UK find this out there will be an uproar.
Then these agencies will be a little more circumspect about trawling your details.
YOU MUST BE OUT TO GET THE....
Biggest downvote record outside of criticising Apple products.
Now that AC posts appear to be a thing of the past, eventhough I think you are talking through your ears I will give you an upvote on the grounds that we must all take a balanced view and I sympathise with your .....
S*d it, no I won't!
Having revisited it I can say that when I first watched it many moons ago my standards were poor and expectations were low enough to think it was cool.
Having matured with high standards and great expectations I really does look c**p.
I blame Star Wars as the catalyst to my expectations.
By the way, what did happen to Blake in the end? Was he killed by the poorly made scenery on the film set?
Obama being bland predictable and cheesy such a surprise to anyone?
Political correctness here!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Being ironic as the last BIG update did nothing for my wifes HTC after the update.
Anyone know what real world changes there were?
if past experience is anything to go by, that why I but my handsets now, to avoid the crapware.
I know it will be good, but
When will the Android OS be secure against malware.
Interesting article in this months PC Pro, on Android security. "Eset researchers are now seeing hundreds sometimes thousands of Android malware data samples each week"
Now we need security apps as standard?
Go on admit it, you DO work for Scan you enthusiast you!
Make it easier to return faulty goods!
Why not now, why wait?
