Sources: Liberty Global, Vodafone take seats at negotiating table AGAIN

Julian Garrett

Re: Hello Newbury...

Err no it wont - Vodafone just announced they are re-onshoring 2000 customer service jobs.

Thing is that Vodafone's network has improved dramatically in the past couple of years - if their customer service had improved with it Vodafone would be a bit better off by now - but they're starting to get on top of that now too.

Disclosure - Yes, I work for Vodafone.

British Airways, IT staff job cuts, an outsourcing biz ... you get the point

What an absolute fucking ballsup

CEO may have his bonus snipped 5% this year as a result.

Don't panic, friends, but the Chinese navy just nicked one of America's underwater drones

Julian Garrett

Meh

Probably plays well to the crowd at home, but if I were in Chinese high command they guy that authorised this would get fired right away. It's the most boneheadedly stupid thing they could have done. For what - to get back at Trump for taking a call from Taiwan? To rile the US? To thumb their noses at Yankee aggression?

Two words to China from the rest of civilisation - grow up

If you think your little outburst here didn't go unnoticed by everyone you're wrong, and if you weigh up the potential upsides vs the potential downsides then here goes - on the upside - china gets a commercially available drone that tracks salinity, and gets to play Hector Comacho with the USA. downside - this just went around the world - and China is forever looking less trustworthy and more coercive in every dealing.

Well played douchebags.

Vodafone says termination rate clampdown would hit the poor

Julian Garrett

And when it doesn't sell, for the same reasons as last time

They will drop their prices. Shit, I thought Apple put SOME value on what customers thought, obviously not.

If this is the way operators are going to treat their customers, this iPhone will flop just like the last one did (outside of America). Purses are being tightened and people know what extortion is when they see it.

I was going to buy one but I am off to get an N95 instead... better phone too.

Gordon Brown claims a Brit invented the iPod

Julian Garrett

He's actually quite right

Jokes aside, Jonathan Ive was the guy behind the iPod. Yes Steve wanted a MP3 player. Jonathan was the guy who made it what it is now.

I dont believe anyone seriously questions that...

Sony, MS want control of PS3, Xbox iPlayer, Beeb boss claims

Julian Garrett

And fair enough too

One doesn't invest a bilion or so dollars in a piece of hardware to have some third party, even someone as reputable as the BBC, come along and hand you a piece of software without wanting fairly good control over how it integrates with your system.

Apple has taught the world how important the look and feel are. And they would be quite right too.

I'm totally with Sony (and MS, yerk...) on this one.

China promises censor-free Olympic media

Julian Garrett

Brought to you by the same people that said...

That the Dalai Lama (or Dalai Clique as they so fashionably put it) was planning crack suicide squads to attack the Chinese.

How fucking stupid do these people think we are??

Next they'll be telling us they invented golf...

Hang on, that *DID* claim that one too.
