DAB: A very British failure

Thumb Down

DAB wobbles

I got a Psion Wavefinder as I listen to a lot of radio at home, and while the quality was good, I got annoyed with the dropouts and bubbling which I frequently suffered from, so I sold the kit on ebay and thought I'd wait for the technology to pick up.

Then in 2006 I bought a Sharp DAB radio, which again suffered from frequent drop out - so I took that back from whence it came.

Then I started to use my PC more and more for Internet radio listening, and my current solution is a BT internet radio, which gets all the stations I could wish for, and is better sound quality - I'm just waiting for the price to drop so that I can get one for the bedroom to impress the missus.

Asus unveils 42in Linux-based Eee TV

Unhappy

but will it work with WPA

As the formerly proud (now just frustrated) owner of a EEE, I can only hope that the new TV is released in a fully operational state, and will not need users to hack into the code "at their own risk" in order to get the thing working as it should.....

Virgin Media boss in shock exit

Tim Browning

Virgin - Pah!

I have had no end of trauma, including a 3 month delay in getting connected to ADSL BB, then 3 months of no service at all as the line dropped frequently.

Funnily enough, a letter to OFCOM about the 3 month wait I had for my mac code, plus a threatening letter about the compensation I would have to pay them for leaving their non-service , has resulted in my line working occassionally which is a bonus.

The things that stick in my throat is the lengendary poor customer service, and the fact that when I did get my mac code eventually, they also sent me a mail saying I could take advantage of the great offer they had on, which was the sh*tty package I was already on, but for £5 more a month.

I would have laughed, but Virgin media are beyond a joke.
