Pretty sure that Jessops was bought by Peter Jones, not Hilco Capital. Unless the two are related?

Not really a U turn, more a wiggle in the road.
Microsoft are so arrogant that they couldn't even manage a U turn on the Start button; they fully realise that what everyone wants is a Start button that displays a start menu, i.e. the traditional list of programs and, if you must, apps. Classic Shell and half a dozen other add-ons do exactly this. But because that would look to the world like what it is, a full U turn in response to a botched UI project, they do what they think they can get away with in a futile attempt to preserve some dignity.
Amazon have to make some gesture towards DRM, or the rights owners would pull their content. It's a sufficiently technical gesture to satisfy the rights owners and put the casual user off rooting the thing, yet easy enough to work around for the enthusiast. Perfect solution, I think.
What a monumental pile of crap
Doesn't render on my IE9
On FF3.6 at 640x480 (yes, they still exist, reason why left as an exercise for the reader) it gets its knickers in a knot when scrolling. Can't leave feedback on the site for same reason.
Final insult; its sets Google Analytics cookies without the user's prior consent. Somebody in .gov.uk not keeping up with new legislation!
CPiO? Don't make me laugh
Sadly CPiO are the buffoons that brought Scolmore's original Sage implementation in at around 30% over-budget and nearly cost the decision maker his job.
As early as 2000 we (CPiO) were able to provide e-Commerce integration to what was then called Tetra Chameleon in Manufacturing, but the sales clowns were unable to do anything other than "give it away" in a rush to close a deal at any cost.
About time too
It is about time that LVCR was terminated; it no longer assists the cut flower trade, and only serves to rack up mileage on low value consumer goods sold in the UK.
The good denizens of the Channel Islands seem to want their cake and to eat it - lower Income Tax, no VAT on low value exports, and demands for zero VAT on imports.
Don't like it? Stop being a British dependency and join the French.
Sawing through a chair
If I could level one criticism of the workmate, it is that if you do saw through it (or between the wooden clamps) then your saw hits the metal framework and instantly becomes fit for sawing only butter - something that isn't true of a wooden saw horse.
But a true inventor, and should be better represented in the Design Museum.
Bond assigned to kill bad guy.
Bond meets beautiful woman. Bond shags beautiful woman, who it then transpires is in some way associated with bad guy.
Bond captured by bad guy.
Bond escapes bad guy, kills bad guy, optionally blows up secret lair.
Bond reunited with now redeemed beautiful woman and fully expects to shag her during closing credits.
