Sounds like a spoilt rich bitch not getting her own way and having a "I'll sream and scream and scream" moment until she does.
How the horror of her husband getting a higher credit score than her must have "traumatised"her. I am surprised she hasn't lawyered up.
And what is the point of a millionaire having a credit Card in the first place? Especially if you pay it off each month? Why not just use a debit card? Or are those for the sub millionaires?
Talk about Hyacinth Buckett…
When my son started at university he asked me if I would het him a new Macbook as his was a few years old. So I did. Was that a mistake. It turned out that he needed windows. Nowhere was that small fact mentioned be before he started his course.
So I bought a copy of bloody windows and used Parallels to install it. It seems his lecturer was not pleased and started to give my son a, er, lecture about rules. I would have loved to seen his face when my son started windows up. Seems he must have forgotten who pays his wages. Effectively my son. A fact I took great pleasure in reminding him of a few weeks later on some open night do.

Don't you think you are being a little harsh? After all if it wasn't for "Joe Stupid" there may not be any need for an IT. department.
My son, who sometimes has problems with his computer, once said to me "Why have I paid good money for a computer and it is forever needing this patch, that patch, software that always needs yet another download to fix bugs" and so on. He wanted to know why they sell the stuff if it is broken enough to need patching as soon as it is installed. He also would think a Raspberry Pi is to eat. He is not interested in how computers/software works, he just expects it to work.
He, I suspect, is one of the "Joe Stupids " to you. I also suspect that he has a point.
Pyramid scheme, Ponzi theme, Multi level marketing.
They are all the same. They all involve getting desperate people to hand over money and "recruit further investors"
They also have the same flaw.
Sooner or later they run out of people to "recruit"
End result? The people on the top few rungs make money. The rest lose money. And the friends they recruited. Or am I wrong?
so much about this post, but it would have turned into a book. A pointless book because I cannot think of an answer to this awful situation.
I have tried to imagine the fear and pain that the victims must go through. I have failed. All I have managed to come up with is that something must be done. I cannot remember saying anything so pathetically useless in my life
My heart goes out to the victims. (Though fat lot of good that will do them)
I agree that all earphones of this type should at least have replaceable batteries.
But how many people whilst whingeing about these pod things, will happily buy watches and 'phones of ANY brand that also don't have replaceable batteries?
At th end of the day it is our fault as consumers, I include myself here, for buying the damned things instead of refusing to buy until they have, for example replaceable batteries.
As to whether this was a real thing or not.
But whatever caused this problem, at least it wasn't caused by those never to be damned enough vuvuzelas, or please God no, bagpipes. I used to live next door to a really nice couple. Who liked to play bagpipe music LOUD. On the other hand, maybe that was preferable to the awful noise that my son likes to listen to, also loud!
Why does not everyone use a prepaid debit card for on line purchasing/subscriptions.
Using one of those (I use Pockit or however the hell they spell it) which means if my account gets hacked, apart from the cash on it, they cannot use it for anything else.
I am seriously amazed that people link their credit or debit cards to any online thing.
@the down voters.
As I expected you have all totally missed my point. And I thought "Techies" are supposed to be clever. Thank fully I use a Macs for my business. (You may have listened to my mixes in certain clubs. There is a reason I am a ghost deejay). Which means I don't need a techie. More downvote oblivion by the sheeple.
Quote "Thus if someone can get into your account". So how did this someone get into his account?
Actually, I am calling bullshit on this. He is protesting far too much. And as for that bollocks about not closing his account? Am I the only one not buying that? Oh well, Downvote oblivion here I come.
Oh do be quiet. I knowI don't think too often except when it comes to thinking about which pub I am going to next.
He is the answer to the encryption "problem". They can stop trying to beak encryption and just do a bit of selective breeding to turn all the new born into "Butt Diallers". Just think, in about 20 years all the sub humans that do the spying will just have to listen. Perfect for them don't you think? And think of the money they can save by not hiring scum to break encryption that we use in order to have a modicum of privacy.
Quote from article (Despite the fine, the ICO's July review (PDF) showed the British public continue to be significantly more likely to have high trust and confidence (rating 4.5 out of 5) in the NHS, police and national governmental bodies and agencies than in private companies).unquote.
Recently my health fell off a cliff and I had to apply for universal credit. It seems that everything has to be done via a government website.
I suppose that if you have an internet connection that is borderline acceptable.
But when you go onto this website, where you are going to have to enter very sensitive details about your self and your family, you will find at least 5 trackers. 3 from government agencies and 2 others, namely Google analytics and Google tag manager.
I now use a sacrificial computer and after every use, do a clean install from a clean backup. Just to be a bastard.
But how many thousands of people are aware that by using the site their info may be passed onto an ad agency, not to mention what various government departments have access to and use the data.
As someone who has paid into the system since 1970, if anyone from the government reads this, FUCK YOU.
And don't get me started on private companies who always seem to have our security as their biggest priority. You fucking liar bastards.
Trust has to be earned and you cunts have killed it.
At least I think it was called that.
Does anyone else remember the fuss about its use? IIRC they pretty much had to stop using it anywhere except Brazil.
God, they were (the developers) total innocents compared to what we have to put up with now.
I mean, with all the data that they must have on me you would think the adverts that I get would at least be relevant wouldn't you. Still, it's their money that they are wasting so I at least have that satisfaction.
Bet you love telling young children there is no such person as Santa.
Maybe you should remember that you should never take away a persons beliefs as that may be all they have got. Especially when you can't actually prove those beliefs are wrong (or right for that matter)
unique means whatever is unique is a one off. So how can you have "even more unique'?
And back on topic, sort of, I still use Dogpile. Fuck the adverts, I just ignore them. Am way too cynical to use "free" blockers. Remember, if it is free, you are the product that is being sold.

"Opening Safari? Hope you bought a book to read"
Huh, that's nothing. I need a book to open Spotify and then bloody War and Peace to read whilst waiting for Spotify search results.
I would dump Apple if there was any alternative. I won't use windows and sadly Linux is out of the question as I can find no Linux software that is at least distant cousins to the 2 absolutely vital programs I need for my business.
Maybe one day.
or is anyone else wondering whether there may be a connection between Apples' hardware and software problems and the, quite sudden, departure of that pretencious prick Ives? It seems to me that a lot if their problems happened as he got various promotions in the company
@ Paul Johnson 1
It would be cheaper for Apple to employ my partner. Always seems to know which part of a persons body I am looking at. As in, what you looking at his arse for? is it better than mine? (The answer is always, always, no)
Been with them for years with no major problems. I have always found the way to a better deal is to tell them to cancel.
My own way of knowing when my contract is about to end, is to use that thing on my 'phone called a calendar. When I start a new contract I spend a minute or so putting the end date into said calendar with a reminder. Sorted.
Then I can do what I do best. Forget about it just like I seem to do with everything else nowadays…
Cheers… Ghost Deejay
So, I have just decided on the new printer I am going to buy.
Yes, it was going to be a Pagewide.
Not now it isn't. But I am now wondering if all manufacturers do the same.
Perhaps I will go back to the old way and dump what I want to print onto a thumb drive and then plug it into a computer and printer that is not connected to the internet. Though I have no doubt that the "slurps" will have thought about that, and said printer will stop working after X period of time, because it has not been able to "phone home"
Is there anything in the computer and peripherals that can be trusted?
