Virgin Media hikes broadband, phone prices by five per cent

Ktsecful

It seems to me that it would anger customers a lot less if they just introduced a new higher tier package when they upgraded, instead of telling everyone they're getting a 'free' upgrade and then bumping the price up almost immediately. I guess they think not enough people will care, but this is the kick up the arse I needed to switch.

Any recommendations? I'm leaning towards A&A or Zen.

Ktsecful

How can they conclusively say it's not 4chan doing it when it consists of thousands of anonymous accounts, who is their mouthpiece that gets to categorically state they're not doing anything?

Re: The bit that depresses me in this

Really?

If that's the case, it's incredible that we don't have half of the nation locked up for going to make a cup of tea in the ad breaks...

DropBox seeks to woo IT admins with team data controls

Re: Encryption

Encryption is obviously best practice, but other things being equal, why go for a company that has a track record of allowing your files (encrypted or otherwise) to be exposed.

Thumb Down

This is the company that only a few months ago let people log in to any user's account without a password, as long as they knew the userid?

Yeah? No thanks.

Rivals to Brussels: Google labelling its own stuff won't help us

Ktsecful

How is this still being looked in to?

Why is it a problem for Google to rank their own services highly? Following this case, the EU will presumably look in to claims from Aviva that in Tesco's supermarkets, they promote Tesco Insurance.

From a quick on check on Bing, searching for maps, videos, or email brings up Google services in Microsoft's own results. If another companies search engine ranks Google's services highly, why would Google's be any different?

Re: O2, good but slow..

Wow, I just checked up on BT's packages after reading your comment
