A room full of $100 dollar bills to be able to get women to roll around naked with him.
I've tended to find that the quality (is that the right term here?) of customer service tends to be inversely proportional to the size of the company.
I can understand that to some degree. Given the humongous user base that microsoft has, for example, it would be impossible for them to provide support for every conceivable issue and use case.
Maybe some kind of customer service SLA could be in order when you sign up for things.
Hence uncomfortable headlines from the likes of the Daily Mail: Eating organic foods does NOTHING to reduce the cancer risk among women, says new study.
That bastion of high quality and truthful reporting said THAT? I'll never eat anything organic ever again.
Re: I'm not sure what to make of that analogy.
Maybe, but bacon and brown sauce trumps all.
and getting finance will be sponging?
Yes, but to make it uber-trendy, you need to say is with a hard G, as in bonging.
Re: iPhone 4S
'Apple replaced mine for about £45. Not bad to keep a two and a half year old phone going.'
Not taking the mickey here, but considering, for example, that you can get an HTC cell for about 6 quid and replace it yourself, it's not particularly good either.
I'd find this funny....
.... if it wern't so true.

Re: Do it when your users are away on holiday
Flip-side of that is there's no-one around to test for bugs/do training. You may end up adding to the sh1tstorm you always get when people come back in September.
Are you a UK based institution?
If so, does your local RBC offer a solution?

"taking input from /dev/coffee"
An internet to you for that quote.
Indeed. Maybe a certain cash rich company might consider making a donation.
Re: Back in the real world
To some extent. But there is still a need for PCs for a large number of jobs. For example CAD, mathematical analysis, design and photography as well as many others.
I'm an IT technician, for my sins, and I'd much rather work with a full size keyboard and screen.
Re: Use strong, memorable passwords
2 issues i see with password lockers.
1. If your very forgetful, (as i am) if you forget your password locker password, then you're stuffed.
2. What if the password locker gets hacked?
'announced plans to put Brits' driving records online.'
Can someone give a convincing reason why there's a need for this?
Ar'nt theyshooting themselves in the foot slightly?
Won't people just wait until the price drops?
Take the point, but it is still dependent on a reliable internet connection. For anyone who can't afford an second internet line onto their premises, it's going to be a key SPOF.
Re: Computers are not that different
How much do you reckon Coke spend on product development? I'd have thought after New Coke they'd save the money and spend it somewhere else.
I would, except they're all as bad as each other. one way or another.
I think apple configurator is supposed to be helpful for apple MDM, but as i understand it, you need OSX server for it to work, which is obviously an additional cost.
So what happens to the people who own Fujitsu shares listed on the LSE? Can they still trade them somewhere else? Or do the shares just lose their value. Genuinely interested to know.
'I discovered that internet access in London’s Tech City was on a par with Will.I.Am’s contribution to the advancement of humanity, i.e. non-fucking-existent.'
Same could be said of his contribution to music.

Re: "the majority of the work remains ahead of us."
True, but you don't need 10 gbps per device to watch kitten videos. Aggregate through put maybe...
Not meaning to p*$$ over your joke though. Sorry
For the downvoter's information, the Eadon reference was a joke.
Also, my money's on Eadon.

Re: Quote.... It's just an iPad, FFS
@ac 12:51 ' a much faster (64 bit) processor'
64 bit does not necessarily equal faster.
something afoot on my 60Mbs connection.
Why do we need to know about your connection speed?
Other thing is what happens in a dip or remote area where the GPS/cell signal is crap?
'because by then devs will also be writing bloatware for mobile'
There's already lots of bloatware for mobiles. Mostly the free apps.
If this has been covered somewhere else, please correct me.
Quick bit of background, I have an IT degree, and I'm doing a CCNA currently, but no other 'professional' qualifications.
Interested to know what people would recommend as a next step from a CCNA.
Also interested to know if anyone has a done a LINX qualification and whether they'd recommend it in place of/in addition to a CCNP.
Do you know if the mac client supports RD gateway?

Re: Do No Evil @VinceH
I know that's a joke, but unfortunately the answer to that is everyone.
Thanks for your thoughts guys.
What you mentioned about certifications struck a chord with me. I'm currently doing a CCNA but i'm wondering how far to go after i've completed that. (I.E CCNP/IE etc).
'Mind you as with many things these days (peace, democracy, freedom, privacy, etc) the word 'honest' means what you want it to if you're in a position to try to redefine it.'
Honestly, is this news to you? It always has been the case, and always will.
I can't find any turds here, Mr Holmes.
surely it won't be long before a troll-like entity starts sniffing around GitHub for something it can wave before a court.
FFS don't start giving people ideas you morons!!!
Re: I predict...
'A huge rise in wrap around totally opaque sunglasses and large floppy hats that will be worn all year round.'
I honest wish people would do this en masse, but i think people are either too stupid or don't care. :(
RE: Apple store service.
'It’s second to none, with staff unfailingly polite, helpful and eager'.
That's precisely what's so f*cking annoying about them.
Honestly don't mean to sound holier than thou, but I still prefer a keyboard in most cases.
The aspiration is to achieve BREEAM Outstanding and LEED Platinum ratings and deliver an overall carbon saving of 40%.
Sorry to be pedantic, but 40% compared to what?

It's that classic fault that all databases have, in fact all aspects of computing have: The users.
