I went to fix my mother-in-law's printer, after she'd bought one and tried setting it up herself. She'd done most things right, except for the USB cable - which she'd plugged into the PC's ethernet port (it does fit, try it)

It is a shame. I had a Nokia Lumia 800 which I loved, and a Lumia 1020 which was an improvement in every way. Then Microsoft killed Win8, lost Here Maps and when upgrade time came around they simply didn't have a viable phone for me.
Gone are the days of the sublime Lumia 928, now they have.. what?
I bought a Huawei P9 instead.
Re: Legitimate use of VPN fine?
"Sounds as though it's only if you're using it to commit or conceal a crime, that 'new language' doesn't seem to cover use of VPN for legitimate purposes."

4 The public breathes a sigh of relief as they're put under mass surveillance.
By the way, the Conservatives' own 2009 white paper - "Rolling Back Labour's Surveillance State" - has been removed from their website.
I had a Lumia 1020 which I couldn't fault - except for its numerous faults (it went in for repair 7 times).
WinPhone is effectively dead in the water now - 8.1 had real promise. Someone at Microsoft needs shooting.
I bought a Blackberry Classic, which I can't fault. I really do love it - but Blackberry is effectively dead in the water now, etc
I don't want the fragmented, ad-filled mess of Android and I'm not mortgaging the grandmother simply to get this year's clone of last year's Apple.
So I'm stuffed.
