RHA

As one of the winners of the RHA 'phones I can confirm the sound quality is excellent for the price-point. Definitely better than the Sennheisers I was using (CX400s)

Memo gives full details of Nokia staff cull and closures

Mark Aggleton

Not necessarily true

The corporate I work for issues Nokia as standard. No smart phones, just phones - what they are intended for in a work environment. Those who need more get a Blackberry - and there aren't that many of those.

Updates galore in Microsoft's biggest ever Patch Tuesday

Any reasonable size business

Won't be exclusively running MS - it's horses for courses. We run Windows, SLES, i5/OS, AIX, SQL, Oracle, DB2, Netezza and a myriad of others on appliances etc. MS has it's place as to many others.

and

as far as I'm concerned FF is shit, why does it take 16 hours to load (with no add-ons - I don't do Lexus lights I'm afraid)

IE9 seems relatively ok though El Reg is a bit odd sometimes.

E-book reader demand boom near

Mark Aggleton

More?

I haven't paid more for a Kindle book than it's paper equivalent. Ok, if it's only available in hardback it will probably be more than it would be in paperback a year later however that price will drop when the paperback comes out.

Brits now spend more on debit cards than rustle or jingle money

Mark Aggleton

@ragarath

I think you are the one joking. In outlets that don't have a proper network connection (pubs for example) I find it ridiculous when someone tries to pays for a cup of coffee (£1.50) with a debit card and it takes ages to auth.

8.5.10 states 7 characters, not 8

8.5.11 states Numeric and Alphabetic (their words) and there's no mention of Upper/Lower case or special characters

I was watching Sky News in Oman recently and have never seen such agenda driven interviewing on any channel on the day of the spending cuts. The reporters weren't actually listening to anything said to them. Total garbage.
