Re: The worst thing about this outage...
Instagram is though..

In all honestly, your core requirements are identical to (I'd suggest) a majority of the goons on here.
When you're (like me) over 45, a swanky phone offers little in the way of additional benefits. We can spend the money we save on ill-fitting jeans and football season tickets.
It begs the question, when do users feel that they've had (insert retail price) worth of use out of their device?
I only continue to get my 6s re-batteried or re-screened because I'm a tight git and Apple's had enough of my money for one lifetime. Also, Android doesn't do iMessage. I'll only replace it if I drop it in the loo or it gets nicked by some hoodlum.
The first I heard of it was when I received one of those net promoter score surveys from their security team without having called them in the first place.
Cue; twenty minutes on the phone between three departments before I found out this reason.
What made it worse was that my card ran out at the end of this month anyway.
When you do change your wifi router, be sure to change the DNS provider to someone other than the VM-provided one.
Most complaints about VM Broadband are related to their very unreliable, bundled DNS.
There are many other reasons to do this too, including not providing VM with your non-vpn'd web browsing habits - which some companies actually sell to 3rd parties.
Had an outage when I asked it to play my Adam Beyer podcast. It then told me that it wasn’t connected to the internet. Obviously I checked both of my connections. After two hard boots all functions returned.
All this nonsense to turn on my kitchen lights and tell me the current temperature In Vilamoura...
The only other strange thing is it’s insistance to listen to a repeating radio advert and then going back to sleep when it ends.
Thank you Global and Radio X.
At first I blamed some f*cknut at HMRC or HMG (who all enjoy a decent, index linked final-salary pension) for this happening.
Obviously, if we wanted to go all- "oh.. Jeremy Corbyn" about this we'd cancel our Amazon accounts and refuse to have anything to do with companies like this, but if you really need to know who's responsible it's you and me.
And this is where we discuss the fact that silicone has no soul and cannot appreciate the lyrics of Bob Dylan, the funky guitar of Niles Rodgers, the choral magnificence of Bach and the emotion of Mendelssohn. As for those who expect an algorithm can build a complex dance tune, I refer you to the previous examples. We all know how they sound and how they make us feel. Mathematics can only mimic human perception from years of experience in real life and real experiences.
Even buffoons such as Like Mike and Dmitri Vegas still have experience listening to soul, rock, disco, classical and will (maybe) have some experience of emotion (before their minds were destroyed by EDM).
Blimey, sounds like something from Blade Runner.
Last night, try as I might, Alexa coudn't talk to the Mother Ship.
I changed wifi connections and still no Alexa.
Today, all my devices demanded that I login again.
Perhaps this problem may be more "security-based", perhaps some unsavoury people trying to crash the mighty Amazon.
Sadly in the world of MNDA's for employees, we'll never know.
Maybe I've worked in broadcasting engineering for too long.
If I relied on 4G for my main comms channels there's no way I'd be completely happy unless there was also 2G (on a diverse provider network) as the redundancy channel.
*I realise that many cellular networks "share" infrastructure (masts, cabinets etc.).
It all sounds like cobblers, most crypto markets employ tumblers which makes tracing transactions very difficult. The only other suggestion is that yet another marketplace has been ceased and operated for the purpose of collecting data by a government agency. More likely (as suggested previously) the buyer was simply unlucky.
Those few years in a US prison will hardly be a holiday camp for him.
I'd suspect that many of the inhabitants will know of someone who's been affected by his price increasing action.
His fame will also single him out for "additional attention"
What's also forgotten is that although he's been fined a few million dollars, he still has significant funds earning interest..
Any person wishing to view "grumble flicks" would simply access sites hosted outside of the UK.
UK" jazz film" publishers all have access for international customers and even a complete imbecile can work out how to avoid ISP filters.
It sounds like a cosy way of secureing funding to me.
There was a time in Blighty where HMG had to ban subliminal messaging in cinema and broadcast media.
All an of our ad execs would need to do is to hide some nonsense about product/service at the end of the ad and hey presto, your slimline plastic friend will ask you if you want to know more.
Ofcom has better get their regulation head on...
In 1971 the ITA ruled him out of a takeover of London Weekend Television because of his news empire.
Digger was a "little disappointed" with this decision and has devoted his life to lambasting the British Establishment.
My understanding is that he used many words to describe the ITA which would make a lorry driver with haemorrhoids blush.
