I am sure this is probably going to get loads of negative comments but we use Fasthosts as one of our hosting partners for our clients on a budget and I honestly cant fault them.
Much better than some of the other cheaper suppliers out there.
Service was always good for me but is excellent now.
Probably the worst company in the world to deal with based on my experience.
Re: Growing market...
"carves out 'niche' in tablets"
"We can't sell them no matter how hard we try, how do we put a positive spin on it"
On a plus note, we have loads of Ipads and Androids in my work, we are introducing a few surface devices and give them their due, they have been well received as useful devices and they are alot easier to manage :)
O2 used to be brilliant for me, Sky was not so great, I would be upset if i was still with O2
The worlds best iphone?
Wonder what would happen if they branded one of their windows phones as a galaxy, would everyone instinctively go out and buy it?
Re: and so the takeover begins...
alot of the schools around my area buy lots of Ipads (despite being strapped for cash) so kids are taught alot about media consumption, i think it is a great idea to fill schools IT departments up with these things, the amount of kids that are still coming out of school into an office environment that have very poor IT skills is ridiculous.
In my school, our IT lessons consisted in how to use MS office and we had to follow specific instructions. I can safely say that I learnt nothing about computers in school.
O2 Broadband for me was excellent.
@pear My PS3 is also a feature rich blu-ray player lol, I prefer my 360 as all my friends are on there and the controller is a better fit for my hands, the PS controller give me hand cramp.
I am glad I am not that man (or woman)!
Although I am not overly keen on the devices, life in the IT management department was much easier when we had blackberries, Goddam you.... progression :)
My SGS i9000 Android phone reboots every now and again usually while the web browser is crashing but I still love it :)
Why do they call it a Rover?
Is it because they are not initially sure if it will make it to its destination and once it gets there they are not sure how long it will last before it no longer works.
Yey, hope it comes out in the UK, i have been looking for a top end 4" Android phone to replace my SGS i9000. the 4" form is perfect for me. Only thing that lets my phone down is that it is getting a little slow.
I was even considering Iphone. Now I can potentially have an amazing 4" phone without breaking the bank.
All the apple fans in my work are expecting more of the same so no one is overly excited.
I guess people assume Apple have become predictable/boring???
Hopefully they will release something that will blow everyone away but i think the current hardware is already really good, I think the visual evolution of the operating system has let it down a little as it has hardly changed in looks since the day it was released I will be interested to see what happens.
To AndrueC, I do alot of browser testing etc for my job, I must say, for all its faults (which there dont seem to be many compared to others), I have not personally experienced any slowdown or freezing.
I have it running on my personal laptop, which is the slowest in the world and it is so much faster than IE or chrome.
I think alot of the certification, especially the Microsoft Stuff isn't necessarily about learning how to use a computer etc, you are learning how to answer Microsoft's exam papers.
I have worked as a techie for over 10 years and still struggle to understand how they get some of their answers. I know alot of people just brain dump the lot which is a shame as my windows 2000 MCSE used to be quite a good qualification
This post is useless without pictures (providing she is hot.)
Mine wasnt down for long
Think i had outage for around 20 mins last night.
No-one can be as bad as Webfusion though for their VPS'. Mine used to go offline weekly, lost me a client. Apart from this hiccup I have been very happy with Fasthosts and will continue to use them.
