People should welcome negative comments posted truthfully as these will help them to offer a better service to the customer.
Any companies putting up blinkers when it comes to negative comments, deserve epic failure.
Of course, honesty is required when posting anything negative. If you had a bad experience, do post it, but don't embellish and make things up.
Also had one of these, and it was good :)
Great to see it was the favourite in 1983, although the chart (and its myriad colors) is a bit hard to follow. Maybe something interactive (a graph which "lights" up when you hover (or mousturbates) your mouse over a certain computer...
Is it possible to plot the demise of a couple of these favourites all the way from 1983 up until 1988?
Lucky guys, all of you... *mutter*
Never had a chance of owning (or using) any of those early devices, but it is understandable that those just *works* unlike today's hi-tech gimmickry gadgets which tend to give issues whether these be battery life, wifi (yes, I'm pointing at iOS6 specifically) or just plain usefulness.
Had the 48k ZX Spectrum though, does it count? :D
Seems that old-tech still have the upper hand regarding reliability and usefulness over today's fancy bling.
On my way to play Manic Miner and Horace in the Park.
DRM vs DRM-free
Is there any advantage to be had by including (or forcing) DRM with your software? You do need to pay for DRM development etc, and to counter any bugs/hacks/cracks as they appear.
Or do you rely on people's goodwill not to copy/pirate your stuff and leave DRM out? No need to pay any extra for DRM development etc...
"...61 per cent said they were just too busy to fondle their slab"
I just love El Reg's "fondleslab" moniker :D
Also got one - but use it at home after work. It is the model with both 3G and wifi.
Prefer it above a cellphone as it's got a larger screen for emails and IM.

Access log history
...should be kept for at least 5 years or so.
It is the client's responsibility to ensure the PC's used by the finances/procurement departments does not have any nassssty malwaresesss on.
Also, client's responsible for the security of their passwords/logins for their bank accounts/etc. As soon as one account is lost/compromised, then that must be followed up on with password resets etc for all accounts.
Bank's responsibility is to set up some intelligent application which "learns" the company's normal day-to-day expenses, and should any large sum be requested out of the blue, then said intelligent app will pause and flag said transaction before it is allowed to proceed. Same goes for small amounts beign transferred into unknown accounts - pause these for review before proceeding.
And last, but not least, train the beancounters on the dangers of phising and spear phishing - these two activities will get nastier and sneakier as time goes by.
