Rich data... Well ripe for crude abstractions rather than any real insights (by NHS England anyway, who brought you NHS 'Quality Dashboards').

I bought Roku Streaming Stick+. It's very quick, and works as advertised. Because it works so well, I take the points in the article about wishing it would take it to the next level.
Comparing it to an enthusiast platform like Openelec makes no sense. Roku is a consumer device.
The boosted wifi is awesome by the way - n coverage in the corner of my house.
Lots of hate for those of us who just want a usable platform to watch iPlayer, Netflix, PlayStation Video and Amazon, and don't have an enormous archive of illegally downloaded media to play (cue flames but just saying there are a lot of us who just want to stream). I have a Pi 3 running OSMC with a couple of DVB tuners which can get iPlayer but not Netflix or Amazon video or Sony stuff.
The new Roku streaming stick+ has just been released in the UK. Would be interesting to review that as it has a wifi signal booster built into the USB cable which is technically vaguely interesting and it's apparently nippy too.
If you give people LibreOffice they will just script the hell out of that anyway (less efficiently than with MS Office)
And yes I do know where the power switch for my PC is.
(Paris - because she likes a good script...)
The distinction between hackney carriages (which can pick up passengers from anywhere in their licenced area) and private hire vehicles ('minicabs', which can only carry pre-booked passengers) is UK-wide. A hackney has clearly stated information about how to complain etc - which I have exercised.
In my experience, the difference between UK and USA taxi systems can't be over-emphasised. I would treat Uber like a minicab - i.e. I wouldn't trust or touch them.
... and their customer service is from the seventh circle of hell. I have a 4G contract with them, which I will get out of as soon as I can. YouView largely works (Humax box), and includes ITV and Channel 4.
Yes - speech is better, and I can now access high speed internet using my 4G phone.
In general, access is improving - to phone/wireless data. People in areas of higher population density benefit first. Some people in our wobbly hilly country who live in high population density areas still haven't got coverage. They will in the end.
Wifi coverage at work is also offering improved access. In the same way, it's not universally immediately available, but it is improving.
The assumption appears to be that opting out is the safest option. As things are at the moment, doctors in secondary care will essentially know nothing about you when you're admitted to hospital. This problem needs to be addressed. Oh, and good luck with your tin-foil allergies - you may find that your life ends before that particular intolerance becomes an issue.
Sounds as if author is grinding their axes.
4G on EE is impressively fast (35Mbps down, 20 up, 34ms ping). This leads to a far more pleasant smartphone experience. The coverage in my city is fine. It costs a few quid more than 3G - no more than that - I got 'double data' allowance, kept my Orange loyalty discount and paid £30 up front for the phone. I can tether for the few occasions I need to - and staying within the 2GB limit is not difficult. The iPhone 5 works brilliantly. The battery life is fine.
Relax, dear, it's just a consumer choice, not a religion. Not perfect or right for everyone but great for me and many others.
