Re: Incompetence expected
It is well known fact that most VPN providers are in fact operated by a collaborative effort between GCHQ, NSA and some other western intelligence agencies. That's why they are so cheap/free!

My understanding is that Jags are a lot more reliable these days and that this has been the case for a number of years. The old joke used to be something like 'if you are going to buy a Jag then get two so you can continue to drive whilst the other is in the workshop'.
Land Rover on the other hand...
(The old joke there was/is "If you are going to drive into the desert take a Range Rover. If however you want to return take a Land Cruiser")
BBC reports it as "The firm said it would hire 1,000 electronic and software engineers and 4,000 workers across other sectors, including manufacturing".
Anyhow, this is excellent news for the UK and in particular the Midlands. The snooty people who turn their nose up at the fact that the multinational firm that owns it is Indian should consider that Tata chose not to appoint tech workers in Bangalore.
Who is to say that God doesn't want us to do this?
I think we should aim to create super-intelligent GM humans, who will in turn advance science in the same way as say Albert Einstein or Dr Emmett Brown. Once we have the 2nd or 3rd generation of genetic super-beings they will of course turn on us inferior humans and wipe us out like the vermin that we are. Ungrateful swine.
Well done 'hackers', you managed to disrupt BBC. You've gained nothing politically or financially but at least it will make you feel big and clever so it wasn't completely a waste of effort. Also, any action that deprives viewers of the brain rot that is "Eastenders" can't be all that bad.
My recollection is that they were the cheapo Korean alternative for people who couldn't afford Sony or even Sanyo TV sets. My guess is that they weren't making big bucks back then. Xiaomi's strategy seems sound and would seem to be holding true considering that they are the 3rd biggest smartphone company.
I left Android to go to iOS, it didn't last long though. Whereas 4 or so years ago iOS was king and Android was a cheap and rough imitation - I found now that in most aspects that are relevant to me Android was more advanced and functional. Android has developed a lot in the last few years and innovated more than Apple. I'm back on Android now.
Read Brid-Aine's review agree with it 100%. Doctor Who isn't a science fiction series anymore nd hasn't been for a while, it's a fantasy series that isn't particularly fantastic. Yet mysteriously most viewers seem to lap it up even though none of it makes sense in the slightest. I realised after The Dark Knight Rises and Skyfall did well that things no longer have to make sense to suceed, but what a mess.
You are missing the point. Some cool people said it is cool and therefore by buying an Apple product I become cool as well. Research, technical merit, suitability and individual choice be damned. So if you want to join club cool just do what the celebrities tell you.
I bought one and found that it is actually a telephone as well (as helpfully mentioned in this article) - unfortunately the data plan I bought is data-only as those were the only options presented to me by Carphone Warehouse. If you want to make and receive phone calls on this bear this in mind. You can still use SMS though (at least on EE you can). I don't think I'd "feel like a spanner" as it would be quite funny in a 'mines bigger than yours' kind of way. Reminds me of the Trigger Happy TV sketch with the oversized Motorola brick.
