How can the BBC be saved from itself without destroying it?

quatra

I beg to differ from the mayority here. The BBC provides the best programming in the world just because of their independence. But, of course, if you prefer American sensational garbage about their way to make money or their mind-numbing sense of humor, you might want to consider moving there as also a Green Card is for sale at the right price.

Dodging costly common cloud pitfalls: YOU ask the questions

quatra

In my humble opinion, contrary to common wisdom not everything that goes up up will eventually come down again. Cyber stuff goes up and stays there for ever, to be used by the new owner (probably some government) as it sees fit.

We CAN'T GET ENOUGH Windows 8 tablets, moan distributors

quatra

Gee, I don't understand why I still prefer Ubuntu but I think the people in Seattle and Cupertino laugh heartily all the way to the bank just as the folks in Washington laugh at your limitless ignorance.

App designed for safe sending of naughty selfies is rife with risks

Naughty Selfies

It escapes me why somebody would want to send "naughty" pics of him/herself, other than to "sell the goods" exhibited. As with any wares it's much better to go to the interested party in person, negotiate the price and, if wanted, offer a test drive.

Take away bad drivers' mobile phones, they still crash their cars

MOBILES WHEN DRIVING

It's not holding a mobile in your hands that distracts. It's the attention that's being diverted. Technologically speaking it's feasible to make use of a mobile impossible when a car is moving. Also people who try to finish a message when "green" comes on is very annoying.
