The really good guys will leave quickly for better rates, while the bad will hang about and moan. Don't like your customer then find another. This is independent companies here NOT employees and most contracts can be terminated with in a week or so on either side. It is shit but it will be the middle management that will suffer all the pain as contractors leave and deadlines that can't be meet.
It was a fair "copitor"
It was a fair "copitor" by the flying squad.
Wanted "the development of a product which does not yet exist".
Well yeah.... that's call a new system.
Re: What are we waiting for?
My old "Snow Leopard" box could not (or they would not) be upgraded, so I converted to run Ubuntu instead; and its been great.
Re: Is this Tesco's fault?
Eh No..... you'd think that a LOT of login attempts from the same source (ip etc..) would start to raise a red flag somewhere. If your customer base is in the UK and the IP address come from somewhere else, then this is not likely to be your customer.
This looks like is a mix of sloppy user security (if Tesco are being truthful) and a lack of security on incoming requests.

Is blockbusters still going, thought they all shut?
Re: Nobody remembers Bill Gates saved Apple
I have never owned a samsung phone and likely never will, I have however had x3 iphones, a fair few mac books, ipad, ipod. I'm not a Mac Fan boy but do tend to buy their kit (sometimes).
Nobody remembers Bill Gates saved Apple
Yip Bill Gates stepped in Gave Apple a big pile of money with very generous terms and saved apple. What did the employees of Apple do, boo him. I've read lots of "Mac / Apple Histories" over the past week and this little fact seems to have been missed, which is a pity, but Apple would have likely folded and we would all have crappy phones.
Debug That Sir!
Not sure I'd like to debug those web applications. The logs would indeed by odd.
Corner Shop ?
This sounds like a corner shop or even argos
Own email Address
If we give all the "internet of things" their email address they will be too busy spamming each other to bother us meat sacks.
Re: Oracle will never, ever be competitive in that segment
They can if they really really want to. They have the cash to burn and a unique mix of systems, databases and hardware. If they don't then they the next Borland/Lotus/etc... and they know this. They need a complete mind set change, will be interesting, but I think they will fail.
Re: Chicks' logic
if (Im == "wrong")
Im = "right";
throw new Wobbly;
Very sadly the Tinfoil Hat lot were right; we are all being watched and tracked all the time.
Its Full Of Stars .... said the crim as he cut the fiber cable
Lack of Investment
R&D spend fell 20 per cent to $729m during the year while sales and marketing increased four per cent to $3.35bn.
Really have to invent again.
It has steam so it will likely not boot unless it has an internet connection and your mums bra size to hand.
Can it run Windows 7/8 ?
Might make a good dev box and its cheap.
Too pricey and burned by "no trade ins"
I popped in to HMV Friday, saw the £550 with TWO games and promptly left. Their "no tradies or swaps" have burned them with the average punter.
Crappy Job but its still a job
I'd do it if I could not find anything else and so would a lot of people currently on the dole. 11 miles a day is nothing and likely lower miles than a waiter.
He may be human after all.
Maybe he is trying to get in touch with his back benches, but I think that is other site.
Important to be Earnest in these circumstances.
Does suppose they have an office in Bracknell ?
Unified Non-Google Andriod
Yes it is quite possible that device makers may shun the Google build and go it alone and carve up the app builness without going through google or "selling" access to key services to other such as bing.
Another increase in the London Gravity well for business and money. Just in time for the 2014 Scottish Referendum, United Kingdom (Except London cos it special).
Re: "there must be a deficit"
Pity that we elect governments that seem set on removing these benefits
Re: First Question : Where is the blue fairy ?
Yes I saw the movie hence the question, just wondered if Waston had.
First Question : Where is the blue fairy ?
Wonder what it would say!
Re: Vapourware !!!!
Yes because Linux has no malware, great idea!
Re: Oops - completely missed the point when I clicked on the article...
No that's a Sandra Bullock movie.
Look Look virus' everywhere, you need protection !!!!!
So Kaspersky is selling his wares on TWO virus stories that his company and software didn't at the time pickup or even detect.
tut.... don't want one now!!!! THANKS REG!!!
I was just desperate to get one of these, but since I can get one I don't want it now!!!! You've completely ruined my whole Apple Experience now... might as well get a Windows RT Surface 1 now.
99% of Cars don't have dab
oh well there goes my Radio 4 in the car. I find DAB to be really really low quality and bad signal making it unusable..
It is very neat, but does remove you somewhat from the whole pi concept of getting down and dirty with the connections and the basic fingers on the board. It would be good for schools and for limited desk space.
Bebo, MySpace Anyone?
Social networking sites are a fad, they're great until something better comes along, then they get dumped like last years fashions. Engagement for site owners must keep them awake at night.
Re: @raving angry loony - Amusing
What about HMS Belfast in London
ut what problem does the internet-connected lightbulb solve?
1. Flash the lights to get your kids up without you getting up
2. Turn lights on or off while on holiday
3. Helping old people fall over more in the dark
4. Scare folk with witch craft
5. Turn off the light while in work, because kids can't do this themselves seemingly!
6. Just cos you can
7. Use Morse code to communicate with someone
I'm sure there are loads more.....
We had a ZX81 but only one telly, so computer time was very restricted and the 16K ram packed used to fall out the back while on the carpet on the floor (no table as well). It was sold after about 6 months.
It was not until I went to college and done electrical engineering that the course had a lot of 6502 programming on RockWell AIM65 / BBCs and BASIC on BBC that I got the bug.
MY boy want to be a "games designers" but playing games is more interesting than writing software for them for him
Ah... all makes sense now as they get take a hissy fit if you walk in wearing a motorcycle helmet; even if you carrying a bank card or cash in your hand to pay for petrol. Even have Tesco staff tell me it was illegal to wear a helmet while paying for petrol. Now I know its really for facial recon and targeted ads I really feel better now.
Think I can wear the helmet under data protection ?
Already have IoT stuff and its not connected
1) Blu Ray player (not connected)
2) NAS drive that does cloud (disabled cloud bit),
3) TV not connected
Sure there must be other stuff coming along, like fridges, kettles, wifi enabled irons with spam bots, but they won't get a wifi password either.
Just because you can connect a device to a network does not mean people will or will want too.
I also foresee so clever marketing like "DEVICE NOT WIFI ENABLED, MAKE SPY FREE TEA"
Re: Typical behaviour?
In the Oil Industry it is not uncommon to have "Named Contracts" where a list of names ie Engineers are named on the contract. This stops this dead.
DAB is useless in my house at best and having on a Kettle / Microware etc.... stops it completely. I live in the middle of a city as well.
Taxis WILL KILL THEM ALL
Expect Taxis to run a ramming free for all at their income drops, a wee nudge here and there.
Also what happens if you are hit by one, how do you ask the pod for its insurance details. So these things will have 24-7 video linked to a base station and scooting about recording everything.
Idiot of the highest order
Who gets government contracts, not SMEs its IBM, Accenture, GapGemmi and others making the Rich Even Richer.
Everyone should chase their slice of the pie and the slice being served by governments and employers seems to be getting smaller.
Will Apple sue, since they've deemed optical drives as "legacy"
Surface does not make sense
1) RT is windows with its legs broke; why bother
2) Useless without a table, that stupid flip out support, no good while on the couch.
3) Surface or Ultra book; Ultra better value, storage, power and wins hands down.
4) Too pricey; make it £100-300 and it "MIGHT" sell, £700 is laughable.
Well it is FREE
The next upgrade won't be though
You can still get 64Gb playbooks for about £110~, fantastic bit of kit for such a cheap price. If you lose or break it more of a "oh well" than a disaster with an alternative tablet. The latest update is good and installing Andriod apps is fairly easy.
Might mean some nice phone/tablet deals from resellers
I expect some great deals on phone and tablet deals the why Sammy has done over the last few years.
