Actually, why not just go back to the old way of doing things where they had to pay on a case by case basis for the DVLA to provide them with the details for "legitimate" usage? That way, only the DVLA is to blame if a whole database gets swiped. Why should the DVLA be able to sell our data without our permission (although there's probably a big section in the small print of any vehicle registration and licence renewal that says they can - so there, tough titty), unless it's to law enforcement, for law enforcement purposes.

Re: Yet another reason..
You can't give PO Boxes, that has been the case for some years;
"Write your new name or new address in section 6 of your V5C (you can’t give joint names or Post Office box addresses)."
And throw him to floor, Sir?
And they wonder
Why the US military and other government departments were worried about them buying the IBM laptop business? Wonder if Huawei do the same then they really would have a field day.
Does it load my grumpy cat videos any quicker?
Re: Who says it's a breach
Either that, or a disgruntled member of the IT staff did!!
Of course, some of this data is shared between networks & OFCOM, so who's to say that one of them couldn't be the source of the breach?
Coming as it does with Three mulling over a takeover......
Dont most laptops
and tablets have this tech? Won't those chips be by Qualcomm/Marvell/Intel??

Not just music & video rights. Images, documents, personal information and your first born.

Re: cool phone number Implanted
It would be quite cool if it weren't for the fact it was 01 811 8055. Tiswas was far more cool, if only for the fact that my Dad used to work on it (he was quite often to be found chucking the water into the cage)
Had one from them today thanking me for my patience during the recent service interruption. Extending my PSPlus subscription by 5 days and 10% discount on a purchase of games and add-ons (between 23rd - 26th Jan).
Re: is it because they're ARM?
So after everybody bitching about them for so long, it appears that Microsoft are actually ARMless after all.
I'm not frightened of installing this
..You will be. You will be.
Re: I think I'm getting old :(
Actually i'm quite looking forward to Windows 10 if only so that i can wipe the blight of Windows 8.1 off my son's laptop - it can't be as bad as that, can it?
So how much MPG do you get?
"Funnily enough, you don’t get anything like that on the bits of road that are used for the Monte Carlo rally" - so what can the Average Joe on the commute expect?
Re: Semi Skinned?
That's probably what his backside will be when it comes out the other end!
No - Lordy are playing the following weekend!
My eyes hurt!
Looks very PC Pro-ish now (and that's not necessarily a good thing). Also looks poor on a HD screen.
Re: Always online requirement? No sale.
Perhaps they were at breaking point because they just couldn't get their braking point right.

They damn well should be next!

Having gone through this myself
I feel your pain. I was quite lucky in the fact that I could read the contents of the drive from my now broken Buffalo linkstation and was able to copy them to a new device. Now I use a Synology NAS in RAID 6 configuration (4 disks) which is backed up to a USB attached drive (just to copy my photos and music). I also have a second Synology NAS I am able to use as well another Buffalo Linkstation. Not that i'm paranoid or anything, but they WILL fail!
Only in Japan though - until Sept 2013?
Does it go back in time when it reaches 88 MPH?
It's an Android tablet!
I just want
a telly that can do motion properly, i don't care about size and number of pixels - they mean nought if a TV can't show a picture without any motion blur.
Samsung TV's have the Amazon Prime app, the Plex media player, BBC iPlayer plus all the other catch-ups and I'm sure their competitors do too. OK, not everyone has a fancy "smart" TV but even so, it must be a gamble in this day an age with margins so tight to be releasing a piece of hardware like this, especially one tied down to a particular service.
I use it and it's perfectly fine. Not quite up to the finesse of the Samsung TV app but better than the Roku one.
Would be nice to get a decent 2g signal!
Re: "where he advises Nadella on technology matters"
W98? Windows ME surely?
I'll wait until the 6s next year
a party with a happy ATMOSphere
Or is it
a toy hovercraft like the one that (briefly) appears in the vid?
Either way, it will will either suck or blow in equal measure.
And stop calling him Shirley.
Re: copyright is for creative works
Isn't that what ultimately did for the non-UK based satellite services offering Premier League games cheaply to pubs? The broadcasting and receiving of them was OK, but as soon as the Premier League logo appears, it became breach of copyright and therefore illegal to show. I would of thought the same thing applies here, incl. Sky logos and any other advertising, team logo's and presumably any breach of image rights the players may have.
Sorry state of affairs though and just one more reason to hate Murdoch and the Premier league. best league in the World my arse.
Re: "producing superior products through innovative technology"
No, if they were joking they'd have started with something like - A depressed horse walks in to a bar, the barman says, "Why the long face?", the horse replies, "Because I'm depressed". And don't call them Shirley.
Re: Rumour Has it
Hey I just wanted to Make You Feel My Love
Rumour Has it
He thought instead of a hard shoulder it was a Cold Shoulder and was just Chasing Pavements instead.
I had a very similar 30 minute exchange with one of Three's "customer representatives". Best part of it was I was actually calling them in the Three shop so every customer that came in could hear my exchange. Even the shop staff were incredibly embarrassed
Are you sure
they said "Bankers"?
In Nottinghamshire always has its signs stolen, can't think why. Perhaps they need to employ a vigilante law enforcer to stop it happening.
This is nothing but a little prick in their revenues. The big pricks you still have to pay for directly via their site.!
As Virgin Media's DNS was also lousy at the weekend. Switched to using both Google & OpenDNS and they were fine.
as stupid does
Agreed. I've been with them for several years now, via Sky & O2(before Sky bought them) and have found them to be very reliable and easy to deal with.
(also in no way related to the fact I just got an upgrade to their 150Mb/s service, saving myself £5 per month in the process for a one-off fee of £5)
Or couldn't it just be
That the OS's are different by design?
Are you sure
That's not just a still from this film?
I'm blown away
let's hope for all those self-gratifiers out there that despite the whole idea behind it, the product doesn't blow.
I was going to come up with some witty response, but really can't be arsed.
