Re: So the Japanese cops...
I doubt there are enough prison cells to hold everyone who did that!

The procurement process is already skewed against small businesses. This skews it even further and yet again plays into the hands of the large incumbents who have better means to run a pilot - a pilot that's probably defined by them in the playbook to make the work unattractive to anyone but themselves.
It’s simple, if you don’t know whether it’s subject to copyright then assume that it is. Google sees it the other way and assumes that nothing is subject to copyright unless the copyright owner complains. Google wants everyone else to generate their content for them to reap the ad revenue. They are fast becoming parasites.
Have they fixed the pips on DAB yet? I reckon cars will be quite a big blocker on shutting down analogue transmissions. My 8 year old car doesn’t have DAB and I’ve no intention of getting rid of it any time soon. I do think that car manufacturers have missed a trick in offering upgrades, the aftermarket alternatives all look a bit crap.
I have 2 iPads, one upstairs, one downstairs that are effectively expensive Sonos controllers. I tend to use my laptop less and less these days as most of my computer useage is casual browsing, checking email etc... I still need a laptop for a lot of stuff, but not all the time. An iPad is just more convenient than waiting for an oldish laptop to crank into life. One is about 2 years old, the other about a year, neither need replacing anytime soon. It’s a bit like the article about phones the other day. There’s no innovation making upgrading worthwhile.
I’ve also had 2 Android tablets - both complete garbage.
Sorry, but I don’t care how cheap they are. Paying less after an outage and expecting more isn’t going to work out long term. Less revenue equals fewer staff and lower quality of service. It will nor end well. I was with one of their resellers until about 6 months back, I’ve no idea if my new hosting company has good customer services as I’ve never needed to contact them. And that’s the way it should be.
I used to work for a company that processed things like newspaper coupons, details keyed in by large banks of key to disc operators. The supervisor always bitched and moaned about the cleaners plugging the vacuums into the “clean sockets” that the data capture terminals were plugged into. She couldn’t grasp the concept that telling the cleaners which were the “clean sockets” was spectacularly unhelpful....
