Re: Someone doesn't care about network infrastructure?
Remind me to show you my MetaWatch next time I'm in your neck of the woods.
I got one simply because I liked the idea of a watch that I could develop custom code for. Like you, I din't really see a need for such a device. However, it does serve a useful function. It might be because I'm not permanently tied to my phone like the yoof of today. Glancing at a watch is much more convenient than digging my phone out of a bag.
Not a balanced survey.
To quote TUAW:
"Second, while Munster's crew spent eight hours counting heads and sales in the Apple store, they only spent two hours counting heads and sales in the Microsoft store – hardly a balanced survey."
Re: New Products Still Under Wraps?
Then you need an iPad.
Ken sent me.
Scott me up, Beamie.
I'm with you there!
It's not so much the push down, it's the slide back up when you're halfway through reading an article.
Has giffgaff upset you in some way, Bill?
Every part of your story was critical of giffgaff. I have been with them since day one and have had few problems. Those that have happened have been acknowledged and dealt with openly, which is far more than other networks manage.
Add in truly unlimited data, low cost calling and they offer a very attractive package.
I think this might cause more domains to lapse and be lost to squatters.
In business, a lot can happen in 10 years. Like the person responsible for renewals not being around anymore.
I think you missed the point of my comment.
I was alluding to the fact that in an attempt to help people get online, PCs are available to order online. Bit of a Catch 22 there, methinks.
It might be fun to bash Cameron bashers, but at least find someone who bashed Cameron. ;o)
A title is required

I think the bit about using robots.txt is interesting. They are essentially saying, "If we can't spider, then nor can anybody else."
Smoke me a kipper, skipper. I'll be back for more cash.
I really really hope that the cast have done this because they wanted to, and not just because they needed the cash. Let's hope that Naylor and Dave can do it properly.
Just been on the phone to Carphone Warehouse in contract cancellations. They are playing hardball. According to Stacey, I cannot cancel my contract as the terms have not been changed to my "significant disadvantage".
The relavent clause reads:
8.5 You may end this agreement at any time by writing to CPW at the above address to give notice if:
8.5.3 we increase any of the Charges for the elements of the Service you are using or change this Agreement to your significant disadvantage, provided you give us a minimum of 30 days written notice (and provided you notify us within one month of our telling you about the changes). In this situation clause 8.4 will not apply.
So, according to their own contract, they say I can cancel if charges are increased OR the agreement is changed to my significant disadvantage. Needless to say, this will be going down in writing to CPW.
