HP 'clarifies' firmware/support contract rules

zaphy42

Funnily enough I've just had a phone call from HP informing me that we've let some of our Carepacks lapse (which we've done deliberately) and trying to put the frighteners on us to renew said Carepacks.

They're not in any way trying to bleed more money out of customers of course! ;)

Bye bye HP! Time to start looking elsewhere for future tin.

So much noise on WinMob, but Microsoft's silent on lovely WinPhone

I agree completely with TonyJ.

They did screw over customers with Win Phone 7.

I seem remember all the promises when it got released that WinPho 7 wasn't at all like Android, and you would get continuous upgrades to the latest version of WinPho no matter which manufacturer you were using*

*Until the next Major OS release comes along. Then we'll dump you like a ton of bricks.

I used to love Windows Mobile and have had a fair few WinMo phones dating back to the good old Orange SPV (HTC Canary), but I wouldn't touch WinPho with a bargepole now.

We want Backup Exec 2012 R2 NOW!

I agree entirely with David.

I don't give a toss about this. Symantec needs to all their resources into sorting Backup Exec out, after the utter crap that was 2012!

Re: .. or maybe the customers won't play? ** Plus one to that

Agreed. I'm holding off on a 2Tb drive until prices return to what they were. I flatly refuse to pay £80-100+ for something I could have bought for £50-ish several months ago.

They're not getting my cash until prices settle back to what they were. Times are hard.

Grrrr.

Came in to 1400 errors this morning. Not impressed Sophos.

Down to 109 to sort now. :(
