If I were to live in a Hamlet where you'd have more luck lighting a signal beacon - Do we now start asking our County Council or Borough Council to get moving ?

Mm, just what the boss wanted: Live charts about your cloud

Phage

Not all. It's just a tool for doing what we do now more accurately.

The FD should not be 'in charge' of IT at all, the business should be. This will allow the business to get a good grasp of how much it costs to do what they want.

For clarity

The 7970 is faster than the 580 by a decent margin and is launching a price that reflects it's performnace. ie About what the 580 launched at.

Lloyds TSB signs up to Olympic Phone pay-by-wave plan

Why NFC ?

In a word - queue times.

50,000 people + staff in a stadium which may have 150 food outlets, means a long queue at lunch time. Each NFC transaction will save 30s to a minute each. That's got to help.

Picking up a programme on the way in ? Wave your card/phone and keep walking.

Have a large staff ? Give them ewallets for lunch costs.

I know that a number of football stadiums are already moving to NFC payments. The Olympics will be the same only much bigger.

Sex harassment case hits IBM Australia

Phage

@Mark65

I worked in Aus for over 20 years, including IBM at West Pennant Hills, EMC and many others. Your comment is not only offensive, but also factually incorrect. If you are going to make those sort of comments please do it in the Daily Mail or similar xenophobic purveyor of steretypes.

IBM has lots of faults, but systemic harrassment is not one of them.

Haldeman / Harrison ?

Hoping to see The Forever War, or The Stainless Steel Rat. Howabout Bill, The Galactic Hero ?

More seriously, Make Room Make Room as Soylent Green has almost nothing in common with the book.
