Used iPhone Safari in 2011-12? You might qualify for Google bucks

Ryan Kendall

why not sue Apple

But Apple track you anyway so I don't really see this as anything but a lawyer cash grab.

If it wasn't for the financial reward I don't think any ios use would be bothered.

Indian call centre scammers are targeting BT customers

Ryan Kendall

fake cli

I get these all the time the 'BT Call Blocking' phone can't block the numbers are they use fake caller id that is an actual BT Call Centre number.

Unless it's someone with an English, Welsh, Scottish, or Irish accent I'll just hang up on them.

If it's important they'll post a letter.

Openreach pegs full fibre overhaul anywhere between £3bn and £6bn

Ryan Kendall

Proportional Payments

And it's copper users who are paying for it.

I'm on a 16Mbit copper ADSL but 20 metres down the street, they get 80Mbits FTTC and they pay 2/3rds the price. And BT said they are not upgrading my address for the foreseeable future. (even though its the only cabinet in town that's left to upgrade)

If I get less bandwidth I SHOULD PAY LESS.

Not Maetric not interested

Sorry, but if it's not metric it could be the size of a postage stamp for all I care.

Feet and inches mean nothing to me, thanks to my 1980s UK education.

Hard-up Brits 'should get subsidy for 10Mbps'

Ryan Kendall

10Mbps is practically useless for anyone with more than one PC.

Everyone should have 50Mbps minimum by 2020, we are falling far behind the rest of Europe.

I'm already payin for BT 24Mbps and ive got a friend who gets BT 200Mbps(FTTH) for the same price i pay for mine.

Prime Minister May hints at shaking up Blighty's 'dysfunctional' rural broadband

Ryan Kendall

No even rural yet

Obviously I'm in a town with a population of 11,000 is not classed as rural.

But welcome to Cambridgeshire, where BT have confirmed to me that they are not doing FTTC for the foreseeable future. But the small villages surrounding my town get Infinity already :-(

Apple seeks patent for paper bag - you read that right, a paper bag

Patent on TIn design

I'm amazed they haven't tried to get a patent for a Tin. Then they can sue all the Tinned (Canned) food manufactures, for the shape being too similar to a Mac Pro.

Julian AssangeTM to meet investigators in London

Ryan Kendall

He jumped bail

Unless the UK government can deport him to Ecuador without it being a media circus then Assange is stuck in the embassy to rot.

Assange can only blame himself for his own stupidity.

You don't need no STEEENKING GPU, says Intel

Ryan Kendall

I hope they update the Intel GPU drivers more

It's a great idea, however Intel don't always seem to fix their drivers.

Blocking ads? Smaller digital publishers are smacked the hardest

Ryan Kendall

Ads on phones

Ads on webpages on phones are very annoying they fill up the 5" screen and you need a pin to close them. Otherwise closing the ad with your finger you start opening up Google Play, or AppStore.

the youradchoices adverts tend to be particularly annoying. "remember that office chair you looked at 3 months ago?" , "no?" , "well here are more charis for you to look at"

Apple users want Windows OS

Peeved bumpkins demand legally binding broadband promise from UK.gov

Ryan Kendall
Megaphone

Broadband prices in proportion

They should charge less instead of a flat fee using an up-to service.

Someone paying £35 p/m for a 24Mbit connection but only gets 6Mbit should only pay 25% (£8.75).

Also none of this throttling rubbish I would rather pay more to download more.
