No networks offer unlimited out 'unlimited' data.

I expect this is still the way the network can extract the most money from the market.
There's clearly a hardcore of people, who can't or won't switch to the likes of WhatsApp. Your parents basically. And they'll pay whatever.
The alternative would be to reduce the cost an increase the volume.
The gimp sucks
I'm sorry but it does. It feels like it's been designed one feature at a time and each feature just dropped anywhere there was space. The fact that I would have to compile it myself does nothing to reassure me this is over. It needs taking apart and putting back together from the ground up.
I like PSP more than PS. If you want to go free then Paint.net is so much better than gimp it's not even close.
What kind of idiot? the people that did the actual research?
Your post is conjecture. we don't need conjecture because there is actual research. you know people have looked at data breaches that have happened previously and looked at the impact on revenue. and found it to be negligible.
Nobody is saying it will add value.
They are saying this attack was sustained. In which case how was the data stolen?
It looks to me like they were distracted by a DDoS, that is the sustained bit. Instead of pulling the servers, they were focused on that and missed the penetration. They handled it badly.
On another note. How do you DDoS a frikin ISP.
@Halvarflake can go **** himself.
He's providing mitigation if not full excusing. Together with being incredibly patronising to those of us that are surprised by this.
Margins are thin in many industries. Oil prices are suppressed at the moment, margins are thin. I'd still be surprised if next time i go to fill up the car with petrol i got a 50/50 mixture of that and bath water. Presumably @Halverflake does expect this, or else he doesn't understand the economics of the oil industry.
what an arse.
Force x Distance.....
It's not as simple as looking at the center point load. you need to consider the size of the device too.
the bending force is likely to be higher with the greater leverage from a bigger device.
for example a 1 penny piece may well have a deformation stress of less than 150lbs but it not going to bend in your pocket. a metal ruler more so.
Hangouts for SMS
I love the phone. But there are a couple of things.
Using hangouts as the default SMS client is absurd. It lists your Google+ contacts ahead of your real ones. and if you are like me these are people you've never met. if you try to SMS one of your actual contacts that you have a GMail address for it basically wont.
3rd party sms app writers must be laughing themselves silly.
the camera is slow. it's adequate. but can't hold a candle to my old nokia N8.
Re: If you care about photography then use a real camera.
with the greatest of respect Eadon. That is a lot of hairy bollocks.
as is often said the best camera is the one that's with you. I don't carry a DSLR in my pocket, i do a phone.
and Nokia did not fake the photos in it's ads. there are many sample photos available for the 808 and they are pretty amazing. How you know that this one will be rubbish before it's even been made is beyond me.
Indeed you can.
It depends on the item. For RAM, memory sticks all sorts of things when you keep in mind that you are going to be without the item for 6 to 12 weeks anyway so you might well have to buy a replacement for that time anyway, and that in say 2 years time these things will generally be cheaper and better, that you allow them access to your data, it's rarely cost effective. Before i stopped buying corsair products. and i used to buy a lot of them, i'd buy another and fleabay the warranty replacement.
Corsair do not cover the postage cost. no.
If you send it back a second time they will cover the cost then. As in they will send you a cheque, (in euros,) after the replacement has been sent out and accepted. Literally 3 months later. you are correct other manufacturers do normally cover the postage, and do not generally require you to post it to holland.
You can try RMA'ing an item that's two years old but you wont get very far. I have done this, with amazon, ebuyer, they just refer you to the manufacturer. My issue is not just the cost, it's that it takes so long that you have to buy a replacement anyway. the corsair warranty is essentially useless.
As for the expected life time of a product. you are correct that the sale of goods act establishes a contract that lasts for 6 years and the retailer has obligations in this time. But without a team of lawyers to argue how long the expected lifetime of a wireless media drive is you are not going to get a retailer to change their policy which is generally that for consumer electronics that they will only act within 12 months and after that refer you to the manufacturer, which certainly if within the warranty period, they regard as meeting their obligations.
The manufacturer warranty and retailer warranty are different.
The retailer will generally retailer will generally replace something within the first year. but they are unaffected by the terms of the manufacturer warranty which could be 3 or 5 years, that is a separate contract and does not involve the retailer at all.
Like i say if you try to claim under the manufacturer warranty in europe you will have to send it registered to holland. it will cost a fortune and you wont get a replacement for 6 to 12 weeks.
whereas, for example logitech will ask you to email a photo of the old one and courier you out a new one the next day. all companies are not the same.
It's really funny that my comment about corsair warranties is being voted down. seems you get fanbois for everything.
It's worth mentioning with Corsair products if they fail whilst under manufacturer warranty you will have to post it recorded delivery to holland. which will cost more than the item.
And it will take up to three months to process. so you'll have to buy a new one anyway.
Corsair warranties, in europe at least, are worth nothing.
