Been a fail.
If it could run Logmein, VNC and a Wifi signal strength detector plus be able to have all the reference manuals I need for repairing out of date printers and laptops, then it might be useful
Since when do Virgin know what browser you are using, I use Linux and when I phone up I always say that I am running Windows XP (or what ever OS they support at the time)
Oh yes you do need a licence
The law says that anyone who uses a TV, or any other device, to receive TV signals, must buy a licence.
This includes video recorders, set-top boxes and DVD recorders.
You will also need a licence if you use your computer to watch live broadcasts.
You only need a licence if you use your computer to watch programmes at the same time as they are being shown on TV.
Before now, this has not been a major problem as very few programmes are available simultaneously on air and online.
Computer users only needed a TV licence if they had a special video card that could receive TV signals. Now the TV Licensing Authority says you need a licence to watch any TV station broadcasting within the UK on your computer.
However, you are free to watch archived programmes or downloadable clips without a licence.

Bad Astronomy: The Moon only shows one face to us because it is not rotating.
Better astronomy: The Moon only shows one face because it is rotating, once every time it revolves around the Earth.
Best astronomy: The Moon does not appear to rotate in the reference frame where the Earth-Moon line is fixed in direction, but it does rotate as seen by an outside observer.
The moon must have a rotation equal to the orbit of the moon, as the Earth's moon has. If you want to test this out use a penny and put it into orbit around a coffee cup. To keep the same face to the coffee cup you must rotate the penny once per orbit.
It is estimated that 1 in 20 drivers in the UK do not have valid insurance (Greenaway 2004), and a similar proportion – around 1.5 million drivers - drive without valid licences (Silcock et al 1999).
