Must watch: GE's smart light bulb reset process is a masterpiece... of modern techno-insanity

Simple

As someone said in the comments: "Guys it's really not that hard, all you have to do is have your bulb off for at least 5 seconds then have it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on and the bulb will flash on and off 3 times, unless you're running old firmware in which case all you have to do is have your bulb off for at least 5 seconds then turn it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 2 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 2 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 2 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on and it'll flash 3 times. I don't understand what all the commotion is about."

Er, IBM were doing virtual machines in the 1960s ;-)

I have an old BT Yahoo email account associated with my landline. If I try to delete the account online, it says it can't be done and I must phone 0845 600 7030 to get BT to do it for me. When I phone that number, they say they can only reset passwords and don't have the ability to delete email accounts. Top notch support from BT again!
