So the FCC and the regulator get a payout, what about the poor sods who were really inconvenienced ie the customers?

Seeing someone has mentioned shotguns, how about using a few AA-12s?
Re: It never used to be about money
everyone under the age of 50? Us oldies get our news off the internet too!
I don't mind a few discrete adverts on websites I visit. What I do dislike are banners flashing away making it hard to see the main page. Even worst when they are something I have no interest in.
Second rate shop
This of course has nothing to do with the fact that their goods are top price and salespeople are totally clueless?
I dumped AOL when they merged with Time Warner and achieved the difficult task of making their website even more bloated. I'm amazed they still exist.
Is it such a good deal?
I got my invite to enter today, I started to register, then got suspicious. If I registered and didn't get a free TiVo box did that mean I'd signed up to pay for one anyway? So I cancelled, not that I don't trust Branson....
Suport your local store
My local computer store will build me whatever I want with any OS I want at a competitive price. Plus I can chat to the technician and see if he has any suggestions or thoughts.
Vista in control?
Their website was probably running on one of those Vista machines with 500 meg of ram that they used to stuff across unsuspecting punters a while back.
Hmmm, £429 for the cheapest iPad or £149 for the Kindle. Difficult choice if you just want to read books!
Don't forget the old BBC computer game 'Pod'.
A lot of people (myself included) will want these mobile dongles for holiday use. They all seem to need topping up each month which makes them expensive for occasional use.
I'm using one of the older Vodafone dongles which was a genuine PAYG. It doesn't run out after a month so is ideal for my purposes. It is slower than the latest models at 1 gig download speed but that isn't a real problem. It's a great pity that the mobile companies don't offer a PAYG mobile dongle that lasts longer than one month before topping up.
Firefox 3.5.3 is OK with TSB site, the only issue I have is that the virtual keyboard in Kaspersky has stopped working with Firefox. It still works with IE though. Kaspesky claim to be aware of the problem but aren't doing a fat lot to sort it.
ITV really did achieve a difficult thing, they turned a potential moneymaker into an overstuffed lemon. Time for some big bonuses?
I'm a dinosaur
Still running Windows ME and IE 5.5 on a Pentium 3. It works so why fix it!
So he made a mess of the programming. Sounds like he is ideal for an IT job working for the British Government.
Until today I used Yahoo as my front page because I could check my emails quickly and get on with some work. Now they've hidden the email page inside so I have to negotiate menus to perform an everyday task. Great improvement Yahoo, what stupidity will you come up with next?
I trust that the cars using these reserved lanes will be a Toyota Prius or similar?
There won't be any Rollers or Mercs poluting the atmosphere will there?
