Re: Same applies to other vendors...
Correct, they do receive live telemetry but only if you opt into it.

I'm not defending the big networks but chances are the average Utility Warehouse customer is likely to be a low user and not very demanding of the network. Perhaps the average Vodafone customer will be paying more in comparison and also expecting a lot more. Not necessarily fair to compare them all together. A better comparison would be to separate MNOs and MVNOs as customers will be different demographics potentially.
My Mum pays £7.50 on Tesco Mobile and I pay 6 times that on Vodafone. It wouldn't be a fair comparison to see who was happier with the service.
Any Amazon device lets you create profiles. If you let the kids use the kids profile it locks down to only allowing apps you choose. It also blocks any attempts at in-app purchases. Easy.
It's so will known that free apps have in-app spending I think it's time Amazon etc challenged these complainers in court or leave it to the actual apps concerned to see if they want to allow any refunds.
Isn't this totally irrelevant though? With BB10 you effectively have the best of both worlds - Blackberry AppWorld and Amazon's Android app store. Whatsapp doing support only applies to the Blackberry app doesn't it? So you can just download the Android version from Amazon.
Am I completely wrong here?
All that and all they managed to do was steal 8 phones! 8 phones which would have had their IMEI numbers blocked post immediately. They would have been far better to ask the data to a mobile phone business that could have called them and legitimately offered upgrades (legitimately if you ignore how they got the data). That kind of data would be worth s fortune to them.
Why would you need an iPad with the Apple tv comparison? Just Apple tv and the subscription would be enough.
Once thing all of those options ignores..... You Tube.
A Firestick or just any smart TV and unlimited free music streamed via You Tube. Every song also comes with the accompanying video.
Surely the investors can see this is far too late to market
That same old nonsense was told to me by an "Apple Genius" when I asked why their already ridiculously prices USB cable had gone up from £15 to £19.
They're like the oil companies, happy to increase due to a weak pound but I don't remember them changing the price so quick when it was the other way round.
Yes wonder if I can get parking tickets charged concurrently..... Get 10 in one day and only pay for one of them.
If he's guilty of multiple crimes then he shouldn't be allowed to serve the punishment for all of them at the same time. The incentive is then why do one crime when you can do 10 and if you're caught you'll get the same punishment as if you'd only done the one.
"already going to have weeks/months of work to redo without not being able to do my current work too!!"
Even though they have been let down by them this person was saying they were annoyed as they are currently unable to use it for their current work!
That's like being thrown off your horse and in the process the horse injuring itself and then moaning about not being able to get back on the horse due to its injury.
First impressions I really like it.
Seemed a bit confusing the set up though, I downloaded the Hub+ and enter all my email account details but there seemed to be no way of accessing the "hub". I then downloaded the Hub (without the +) for email and that seems to work fine.
I'll give it a few days and see how I get on.
There's a mention somewhere (I forget if in the article or comments) that Blackberry better manage the data usage. I know this used to be the case with the old school Blackberrys but I thought since Blackberry 10 they use the same as any iPhone/Android would be emails. Is that not right? In not then does using the Hub use less data than any other messaging app?
How does anyone have $6 million going through a personal PayPal account and no flags are raised?
I dont know how it works in the US with the IRS but in the UK the HMRC would have been notified as soon as a certain threshold was hit.
No mention of where the cash went eg lavish lifestyle etc. Also did the company buying the ink think she was a legitimate seller or were they in on it too?
"Research by British Gas showed that smart meter customers have reduced their energy consumption by an average of about three per cent for both gas and electricity"
Pathetic! You would probably save 3% by getting a newer tv and replacing a couple of light bulbs.
Haven't they already proven these ththis to be insecure and an easy way into your home network?
In general people don't care about security. They want an iPhone or a fashionable brand of Android. The BlackBerry Priv is neither but they priced it the same or higher. It was always going to fail. Blackberry stayed asleep too long and by the time they woke up the world had passed them by.
That said there is still demand for a handset with a qwerty keyboard but they need to use an ounce of common sense when pricing it.
I have a Vector smartwatch, use it everyday and charge it once per month. It's not perfect but handy for a quick glance to see an email, text, call (see who is calling) etc without taking my phone out my pocket. E-ink displays are an obvious choice on a watch, no idea why the others insist on colour and touchscreen resulting in daily charging.
Persevere with the US version, it starts as a carbon copy of the UK version but soon establishes itself. A few series in and it became one of the funniest series I've seen. David Brent in the UK one you kind of don't like but feel sorry for. Michael Scott in the US one you end up loving.
Brand new iPhones maybe targeted buy I heard the opposite is true of ones belonging to people. Since icloud lock was introduced there was a massive drop in thefts and New York was mentioned in the figures. An iPhone with an icloud account on it would have a very low value to sell on as it is impossible to remove.
"Although by the time it gets to blighty that will be £200, a bit like the NVIDIA 1080 is retailing around £550 in the UK and $600 in the US :("
£550 includes vat. Take that off and the price is £458. $600 will be subject to sales tax which varies depending which state it is purchased in. $600 in pounds currently is £421.
So those prices are not as far apart as you might think.
Interesting you mention Prince as maybe 10-15 years ago he gave away his new album for free in the UK with copies of the Mail On Sunday I think it was.
It seemed odd to guide it away for "free" but I believe there newspaper paid 25p for each or something like that and he made (or the record company) a lot of money from that.
A bit of a non story really, as someone said the new BlackBerry models you would just install the Android app.
One problem the BlackBerry app store always had was the price and quality. It was full of junk for free and that was mixed with apps costing £10. Any Blackberry user that happened to look at their friend's iPhone/Android phone would soon see what they were missing out on.
Sometimes I just wish BlackBerry would listen and look at the market.
