So it cost FB and extra £1000 for it's accountant to find a way to avoid paying tax, a worth while investment !

Simple equation , Android(manufacturers+mobile service provider) = (got your money + foad if you want support)
Vaizey got shares in BT and doesn't want his dividend reduced ?
EU Commis bottled it and snuggled up to big business, even if they are breaking rules or bending the truth. They should be demanding changes now !
Re: Tantrum coming in 3, 2, 1...
At least of sailors didn't stand around waiting to get bombed in port and were up for a fight !
It's VM, always takes them a year or two to get off their backsides and do something, look at the fiasco they have just suffered with email accounts getting spammed to hell, after moving from Google servers and yet refuse to accept a data breach !
Dumped Adblock after they sold out and now use Origin plugin for Firefox.
Googles own fault for giving the manufacturers and mobile network free range to bastardise the o/s with any crap they feel like !
I have a pc designated as the Windows 10 LTSB guinea pig, but it aint getting it until xmas 2015, by then, I expect all the M$sheeple to have caught most of the nasty surprises.
Windows 10 on Mobile .. Flaws, confusion, and going nowhere fast, cool, send it down to me now, will go nicely with my rubbish EE coverage !
120 days is more than enough time, companies should be forced to cover costs of an intrusions, they'll soon get their acts together when it hits their profits !
Ex-GCHQ/NSA staff and I bet more backdoors than a small Yorkshire town !
Re: I also agree, but...
Agree, I always overestimate the costs and time of a project, for those little niggles that always show up and when I hand back a bag of saved cash, the bean counters smile, the bosses smile and I have sneak off with a smirk on my face and a pat on the back. Unethical, probably, warranted definately !
EU Fails Again
So lets go through the points for the ISP's.
1. Banned from blocking or throttling internet speeds for certain services for commercial reasons - We'll find a loop hole.
2. They cannot prioritise content, yet enforcement is open to interpretation. - How much abuse can we get away with.
3. Some electronic communication services other than internet access services, require specific QOS - so we'll just throttle you and say the NHS needed the bandwidth.
4. Internet traffic can be managed to deal with “temporary or exceptional congestion” - we''ll abuse them when we can.
5. Temporary congestion beyond ISP control - I bet this will be a favourite excuse, especially when it happens a lot and they don't want to increase capacity when economically justified.
6. Zero-rated service are left to each countries ISP to abuse.
Looking forward to having my first run in with Virgin Media support muppets !
Re: Nokia Communicator
I still have a fully functioning boxed Communicator 9110, with spare battery and in excellent condition, that I occasionally bring out for a bit of fun with its old DOS.
No, what Google have done, is give advertisers a hole big enough to drive a bus through to ensure the droid gets it advertising revenue kickback and the malware peddlers have jumped on the bus without paying.
Any data breach should be reported, no doubt reporting wa slost down the back of the couch just in case it hurt Theresa May chances of becoming the next PM, heaven help us !
BEEB Not Broadcasting
Although the idea of giving away millions of these little things is commendable, the BBC extorts money from the licence fee payer to provide broadcastable material either on TV or or online. They are not hardware manufacturer/suppliers/developers and this should have been done by other means. Just another example of the BEEB hemorrhaging money of projects that they have no reason to get involved with !
He may be an egotistical prat, but he needs protection, as he no doubt will not get a fair trial in any country that the US of Ass has any influence or he has p!ssed off.
Get Out Of France
Can you blame the migrants for wanting to get out of France, even the Germans couldn't stay more than 4 years in the 40's before giving up and moving home !
Re: Didn't they try...
Yeh, still didn't keep the French out !
Can just see the advertising slogan ....... DP'ing users with US Gov since 1989.
Not Very Efficient
I just did this an ZX-80 on a single screen in BASIC and it looks pretty.
LG not patching, not surprised, they and the carriers got your money and don't give a toss about supporting you, you want the hole fixed, upgrade the handset you'll hear them say. They leave any fixes to Google, to try and clean up the mess. Android is a good O/S but compared to IOS and WP it is too splintered and bastardised by companies and carriers all trying to be too clever and screwing it all up !
ICO Waste Of Space
I heard somewhere that the ICO was told to back off big business that screwed up, by some faceless bureaucrat, wish I could remember the posting, but hey, we all know it is probably true !
UKGOV should be ashamed of themselves, who do they think they are North Korea ?
GCHQ have been found to be doing something illegal and UKGOV change the rules to protect them.
Cameron is a muppet and shown to be an inept a-hole when dealing with the EU ( Fuhrer Merkel ).
He has yellow stripe down his back, as wide as the M6 and only interested in keeping himself the the Tories in power.
And don't even get me started on Theresa "Crocodile Tears" May, a woman with a barely working brain cell.
Oh come on, we all know that it is of Vista RTM build quality and that everything they are doing now are features and not issues, they read the Apple support manual before commencing compiling.
LINUX, always thought that was government code word for deleting documents that show they have lied to the country.
Re: Privatised Industry
Government have friends in the Elecrtic Business they need to keep sweet, for political donations and seats on the board for when they are no longer in power. It's just an old school tie network. FIFA does corruption with brown envelopes, UKGov screws everybody in the open, most of the time !
M$ says .. Once a Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, we will continue to keep it current for the supported lifetime of the device.
So if W10 has life cycle of 15 years, but I keep the same hardwrae running for 20 years (humour me), will M$ be liable to provide updates or come up with a loop hole?
So what excuses will Virgin Media have to come up with now, will still have issues with giving you a stable connection, nevermind full speed.
Very loose allies, USA seldom give the frogs any important tech, look how long it took the frogs to develop nukes (1960 v UK 1952), due to the yanks not trusting them with the know how !
Google will be recording everything you say and do to help their spook mates, but carriers are doing that anyway using legal or illegal means !
EU Balls Up
Smells like brown envelopes under the table from big biz to ensure they can get away with murder, alongside Government and spooks.
"There is no evidence the systems have been deliberately designed in this way by intelligence agencies." and Hitler and his mates were bloody nice blokes, just misunderstood, who liked to chillax on a weekend having a joint or two.
Of course it was designed like this, this type of thing is a gold mine to spooks to find a person !
Apple lowering prices, yeh good one, made me laugh !
No Backup Plan - Shoot The Admin
Any sensible organisation will have a WAR plan to continue to function if they loose their primary data systems, but not the Budestag !
Let Him Go Free
NSA don't need to do any more snooping, they allow the our members of FVEY's to do it for them and they pass on the information. The UK will soon be the place to go to spy on your population as they systematically destroy of freedom !
Wouldn't it be quicker for USAF to just bomb Facebutt, Twatter and like, nip the recruitment and PR in the bud, also does the rest of the planet a good service !
Fail Waiting To Happen
Wonder if any brown envelopes were passed around with party donations ??
and still Google and the manufactures refuse to update older phones to a more secure version, using the same old tired and lazy excuses !
Fobs - Old Hat
I don't use fobs or keys, I have facial recognition, I just head butt the door near the locking mech and hey presto, it opens. Now just have to get it to start using my old trouser snake !
Waste Of Money
What MOD should have done is bank the £1.4m and any overuns and extensions etc etc and buy whatever the yanks are developing, minus the backdoors. The exact same kit mind you, not the yanks buy the F35A which works while, MOD buys F35C which is a piece of joke !
Time For An Alternative
The U.S poltical system needs a UKIP, yes they have their own issues to deal with, but you cannot deny they say what the public think privately. Just a shame too many shepple will vote LibConSNP !
Anything to keep the self-serving, elitist, lying Tories in power, wonder how many companies sudenly drop below the £250m profit limit ???
What Do You Expect
Capita + UK Gov = millions wasted and arriving late, if at all !
Judicial Whitewash !
As the sole dissenter, Lord Toulson will soon be appearing on Police databases country wide, the others are probably already present and Police have had a quiet word !
Any Excuse By Governments
Theresa May must have been jumping around her living rrom wooting for joy when France was attacked, now she and the rest of Camoron's poddles can use is an excuse to allow security services do whatever they like !
Dodgy Dealings Afoot !
Police maybe doing something illegal, now that would be a rare occurance !
No doubt some pea brain at the Justice deapt. is laready beavering away to see if a law exists to let the copper soff the hook and if not, how quickly they can make one up and get it passed Parliment by the back door !
