It seems likely that performance will take a further hit once the news of further price increases for customers arrives. I'll be saying goodbye to Infinity after using it's service from the time it was first available to me.
They also need to knock off the cash guzzling sports and mobile phone stuff.
For projects where we are purchasing a number of 'items' e.g. submarines, fighter planes, etc. I do not understand why they don't have an initial contact for the first of the type to establish cost and then contract for further units as required. As opposed to the current situation where they don't know what it's going to cost, we order a batch upfront and then BAE (or whoever) pass the cost on to the taxpayer for their costing mess ups. Also fixed price contracts, obviously.
A poke, 2 snips and some smoke
I may well get a vasectomy next year, never had the paternal instinct.
If you can please consider supporting the Vasalgel (injectable polymer plug, non-hormonal, 10 year+) contraception for men. Looks like a good, potentially reversible, alternative to vasectomy.
There is also another product called 'dick click' out there that looks interesting.
It would be good for men to have more than 2 contraceptive choices - condoms or not shagging!
Lack of alternatives
I actually like the Infinity service but I'm sick of the price rises. However, all of the other providers don't seem any cheaper once you add in the line rental and activation fees. There's also no Virgin Media or FTTP to where I live.
Remember when Internet was very expensive when it was first available but gradually came down in price, I long for those days.
Surface Book 2
They just announced a Surface Book 2 (https://www.engadget.com/2017/10/17/microsoft-introduces-surface-book-2/) so chances of killing off the line don't look too high.
Also, the channel saying "nobody makes any money" misses the point. MS launched these to show that PCs, laptops and tablets running Windows didn't have to be ugly or beige with the intention that other manufacturers would follow the design cues. So they're not necessarily running this product line just for $$$$.
What a load of rubbish...
So their IT team doesn't know a patch is available without someone sending an e-mail about it? They don't have patch management software? Individual software packages don't alert IT about patch availability?
More likely scenario is someone was told not to apply the patch for one reason or another.
Re: Millennials - CYOD
Yes, definitely. Always thought CYOD was a better alternative. I think a lot of employees either want some sort of Mac or other people on Windows PC want something above the bottom of the range offerings that companies usually get on bulk purchasing / framework agreements.
