You're all a bunch of grumps. I reckon it could be quite interesting.

Re: Crikey, That Is Expensive...
I suspect their out-of-date service is now a burden, but they are not going to turn away customers willing to pay more for a worse service.
As a general comment, I really don't understand the concerns of OFCOM in these circumstances. If people want to pay more, then they should be left alone to do that. It's their money they're wasting, and we're all shareholders of these companies in our pensions.
Re: Social Attacks
A disease is considered rare if 50,000 people contract it per year in the USA. So 13,000 people per day is only 300 times that, in a world with only 4.4% of the world's population living in the US. In other words, people unfortunate enough to click malicious links are only about ten times more common than a 'rare' disease...
While Google makes the best product, we'll all stay 'loyal'. But the users of Google products were, 10 years ago, users of Microsoft products and, when the next significant change in the market comes, we'll be customers of that new behemoth. There's nothing wrong with a single, popular platform that allows anyone to create software and make their fortune. There is something wrong with games consoles and iPhones in terms of freedom for developers.
Re: !!! - but it's only a click away
Erm, no. If you put your mouse at the bottom left exactly where the old button was and click, the start menu appears. And it appears, amazingly, if you push the windows key on the keyboard -- just like Windows 7. And if you open a desktop app just by typing it's name in Windows 7, you still can in Windows 8.
I agree with Richard Dawkins
The arguments against Creationism are not required in the debate, but are strong nonetheless.
Creationism is barely more defensible than a nursery rhyme and the suggestion by anyone with any amount of intelligence, that it should move into the class room where *facts* are taught belies belief.
