Super Cali so litigious, Uber is the focus. Even German judges say it's something quite atrocious

masterofobvious

The uber experience is the same as a minicab for me in London, but generally the cab comes much quicker at a little greater expense. Generally good cars - BMWs or Prius etc. Very handy for me.

I'm a fairly tall guy so I don't have to worry about safety, however I wouldn't put my girlfriend in one of these by herself late at night for the same reasons as a mincab - you have no idea how vettted the drivers are.

End of buttons? Apple looks to patent animating iPhone sidewalls

Re: This could be a good thing

Hang on, the screen is the largest power drain on ALL smartphones, I would double check your assertion that having more battery space behind the screen is going to equal more battery life..

Which qualifications are worthwhile?

masterofobvious

If you're doing any sort of operations job then ITIL is the one qual that will never go out of date.

BT to fibre up another 98 exchanges, puffs 'FTTP on demand' offer

masterofobvious

Whatever

As mentioned above, my exchange has been enabled but there isn't a cabinet in sight of where I live. I'm about 1 mile from the exchange. Once again it's just numbers and PR/paper release.

Thanks BT

BYOD sync 'n share

masterofobvious

I don't mind so much if the Dropbox service is unavailable for a day

There are copies of every file on my 2 laptops, my NAS and Android phone anyway. All you really use is the automatic sync which just an inconvenience really.

I'm sure other users have more requirements than me, but I'm happy.

No one wants your low quality streams anyway LoveFilm

Streaming content looked worse than a DVD to me with massive compression artifacting, why bother?
