Re: Office 365
Depends why you buy, but I’d be certain they will have ‘Home Use Rights’ or be part of a Microsoft Home Use Program where you can get a full individual copy for £10/pop. When I was at BT we had this available.

I tend to agree. Smacks of trawling for information to make a case for suspicion, as opposed to having enough evidence to make a case for the CPS.
Waste of Police/CPS time and resources.
I’m assuming every Joe in the street can also refuse PIN , as their ‘crimes against society’ will have no overlap into anything that can have Terrorism label slapped on and won’t be obstructing an investigation like that. Otherwise... “caught speeding Sir, can we have your phone PIN. You seem to fit the profile for car cruising”.
Apple Computer Inc
I can sell Window’s without threat from Microsoft.
I could sell Chicago Pizza’s - not Chicago Town - so no worries there.
Many companies have made up faux heritage - Frankie and Bennie’s for example or Reggae-Reggae Sauce infamously... both Trademarked.
“My youngsters are all up for wearing PPE but they are still the highest risk of catching it when they go back to school.”
“The highest risk of catching it”. seriously. Any compelling evidence for this?? ... bearing in mind youngsters suffer the least and will also be the least tested age demographic.
I think the long belly-ached about “low productivity out of the office/managing people remotely difficult ” corporate why you can’t work from home excuses have finally been hosed. Many people will work their 8 hours productively between7 and 10pm and get their shit down.
Office providers- and esp. people like WeWork - should be quaking one their boots. Who needs much more than a token head office now.
All you need is a home office setup - desk/table, mid-range laptop, decent (24” or greater second screen), headset, printer possibly and VOIP telephony/conferencing. The only slight fly in the ointment is broadband.
Automatic benefit too of saving the planet with reduced commuting/air travel and consequential CO2 and other emissions ... Greta will be ecstatic.
Exactly. A great time to double down and launch the iPhone SE/2 to keep the wheels turning. It will also sell very big into corporate against cheaper Android handsets that many have settled on when they can’t/won’t pay for a ‘full on’ Smartphone like an iPhone 11/Galaxy S20 etc for all but execs. Corporate cheese-Parer’swill love it. It’s a great value phone for kids too. I’d predict it to become the biggest selling iPhone ever.
LG, HTC, Sony, Nokia night as well not bother re-opening.
I can’t see past Apple, Samsung and the Chinese value manufacturers surviving.
Not really - the old adage ‘“it’s easy to make money if you have money” comes to the fore here.
Billionaires - who unlike my fucking pension fund who got out to cash early with inside information from their government pals - will be hoovering up cheap stocks, oil futures and your property on ‘Homes under the Hammer’ to flip when your mortgage provider turfs you out as a CV19 bankrupt.
Donald Trump is a case study here in inherited wealth.
Don’t forget the Cash Burn on Eats.
That will be far higher than Self-driving in the global war against Just Eat and other other takeaway delivery companies- all burning money at an insane rate.
CV19 will be the final nail in the coffin of WeWork - who needs an expensive **shared** with other people office - just get a Ring Central/Zoom/WebEx account and stay at home now.
I’d like to think the UK legislation has a 6 month sunsetting on it. Otherwise (hi to El Reg cowboy’s) it will be like the US Homeland Security legislation after 9/11 still in effect 19 years (or so) laterz and no attempt to roll it back.
Kier Starmer ... we need you in vParliament holding these fuckers to account.... and when I say fuckers I especially mean Priti Patel.... our suspiciously ‘absent’ Home Secretary. Is she already holed up in the Government Bunker full of bog roll, pasta, eggs, milk, flour, yeast, choc chips and Tonic water??
It’s like much traffic advice and nonsense spouted when going between must not and should not. They still spout bollocks about the new motorway HADEC’a camera’s being ‘on all the time’ regardless of the managed motorway state - which tracks back to a vague police spokesman (ha in Derbyshire!) said some to a Derby paper. It’s unlawful for speed camera’s to be on all the time in a managed motorway except when the limit is in effect.
As El Reg is global, I’d expect advice - on anything - to be localised as appropriate.
I do agree on the shooting of Social Distancing Miscreants - though note it made little difference on 28 Week’s later. The fuckwits always sneak through....
It would have been be useful in Tesco (UK) this morning. A lady was reprimanding an ugly chav mother and similar fat child about social distancing in the aisles and not following the directional arrows around the shore and got a sharp “fuck off” in thanks.
GDPR isn’t making a difference... because the 2 high profile fines go BA and Marriott were deferred/put to appeal.
In the current economic catastrophe/climate, they will be watered down to nothing.
Without fines that hurt badly, GDPR will continue to be ignored. Perhaps some CEO jail-time is a happy medium in these trying times. That won’t put a burden on the companies. Willie Walsh - 12 months in the Scrubs.
The Brexit retards will love the idea of a pan-European track, trace, eliminate app. The UK will do their own by sheer bloody minded-ness so they won’t be rule takers.
Perhaps the Council of Europe could lead on this with it’s far wider spread of members and associate/partner countries outside Europe - esp. as we have not left ( and are not leaving) that organisation..
Several of the many 2FA apps seem like a reasonable way out if this - even one with an anonymous Capcha style mode.
“CAPTCHAs (completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart)” .... Alan Turing will be spinning in his grave his legacy has been attached to this usability fail bag’o’shite.
Another year to save up to pay fair dues.
I suppose the Contractors who have spaffed their money on a Porsche Macan instead of tax/NI and a holiday/sickness/PHI fund will have something to barter for food when the CV19 Zombie Apocalypse clicks up a level.
I can’t believe you mention cleaning rack-mounted keyboards/drawers and then go on go mention weak bleach solutions in water in the next breath.
More D’oh stories of blown kit.
Unless you have some desperately crummy old kit most stuff should be remote management to the bare tin and not need much KVM action.
You could always invest in a Work from Home setup of your own ?? Try and Claim it back on your Self-assessment or find it my with some WFH days from your fuel.
2 decent Samsung 27” 1080p screens and a monitor bracket will rush you only about £300. Rob a keyboard/mouse/laptop riser/printer etc from work.
