Re: The UK
To be fair, our local force did. Although it was a laptop with Logmein installed. 3 months after it was stolen it was still being used, and after supplying the police with 20+ IP addresses when it logged in they raided a house and found it. Problem was that the person at the end of it was a 14 year old girl who 'bought it from a car boot'

I'm sure M$ have had better days.
Glad to see they are giving out the Huawei E160e dongle. I have unlimited for £7.50 a month (business) and was given the ZTE MF636 dongle. After 6 weeks of losing a connection to the network somewhere between 30 and 60 minutes all the time they have finally accepted there is a known fault with the modem driver (I'm not alone apparently). Will the replace the dongle for a different model, will they f*ck. They would rather keep crediting me for all the hassle until they get a driver fix.
Knowing how slow Orange can be in getting fixes out it could end up costing them more in credits.
But can it run Quake?
Slow news day....

Not a problem for cabin crew
I used to fly from England to Scotland on a weekly basis, the cabin crew could often be seen texting from the galley.
This is an age old concern, like the early days of no mobile phones in datacenters. I thought I read some time ago that an airline was trialling mobile phones on flights?
Sky News did do this in a Flight Sim, although they did stop the film just as the plane touched the water... can't think why that would be!

These prices are if you taken out the Virgin Phone service as well.
