Re: Vodafone playing with Ethics again?
You don't have to deal direct. I use Fivebars to manage my O2 contract. So much easier than having the hassle of O2's call centre. They also do some clever stuff with tariff arrangements.
The future is here!
Can I have one under the glass of a full sized tablet? Then I could unlock by placing my whole hand on the screen.
Paris 'cos using palm etc
I'm an Everton fan, so no idea why I'm getting involved in a discussion about football.
If Man City sacked their entire first team and replaced it with a team from the local primary school, their profits would shoot up.
For a bit.....
Did it come up with anything new?
I'm crap at Chess, but do understand the notion that their are certain patterns of opening moves, mid-game, end-game etc. Did the AI come up with any new approaches?
Just like to know.
As quickly as I learn how to turn this stuff off, MS seem to find new ways to piss me off.
Re: Color me surprised
If you're buying from Amazon, always stick to Prime (even if you're not a paid up user). That way, Amazon will handle all the problems.
My phone developed a fault after 11 months. Instant refund, no questions asked. Try that at CPW.
Maybe they should take responsibility for something?
1st June 2016 exchange rate USD to GBP was 1.44
Now it's 1.34.
Hardly an earth shattering change. Yes, I know it went down in the middle for a bit, but anyone dependent upon imports should be hedging currency.
Sheffield doesn't even qualify as a Riding - just East, North and West.
There's no shortage of taxis in York. Think how many are needed every time there's a horse race.
Re: ... was met with a "huge cheer" from assembled black cabbies at the meeting.
There's no black cabs in York. Just your regular cabs with a sticker on the side.
After York station messed up their queuing system, the last thing they needed was Uber.
I bet they won't pay a penny more. They'll just charge expenses or royalties to the local offices. Zero profit, no tax to pay, job done.
Re: You have to laugh:
It's IoT of course. You're such a Luddite.
Re: lax installers who have disregarded installation advice
You just force the installer to create a secure password as part of the inital bootup. Even Windows manages to do this!
lax installers who have disregarded installation advice
You sure? Surely the responsibility of the manufacturer to have secure defaults.
Bitcoin's value fell by nearly three per cent on Monday
For Bitcoin, that's just noise.
Maybe we should also be encouraging the newspapers to stop reporting on people who have become millionaires by investing a few thousand in bitcoin. Just encouraging the bubble to get bigger before going pop.
Re: Ah well
For those on Microsoft, Cortana does a pretty good job of this too.
I've found O2 has improved greatly over the last few years. Gone from no signal to 4G in large parts of East and North Yorkshire. I no longer need to take a 3 SIM on holiday to Orkney either.
If my house was 4 stories high, we'd get excellent 4G. As it has just 2 stories, we have a pico-cell which provides full 3G signal.
That said, O2's customer service was so crap that we switched to a reseller (5 Bars), so we have someone in the UK to talk to when there's a problem.
Re: Nokia 925 is still my favourite phone
I miss my Windows Nokia (Lumia 950XL). It died, now I wish I'd just picked up one secondhand. Android is nowhere near as good. Only bonus is the native SIP client (not sure if that's just BB).
Re: Much whataboutery about nothing
He's not an employee. He's a representative of this constituents and a Member of Parliament. I think that what he's done is inappropriate, but don't think employment legislation is relevant.
I'd be interested in where he was when it was downloaded - if connected to parliamentary networks, I'd have hoped that this stuff would have been blocked for security.
@Frank. Are you sure that film wasn't about Voyager 6?
No, it's from Martian Chronicles.
I can RUN that fast
Not in deep space you can't.
Are you suggesting that this is a half baked idea with unfinished software?
My first thought was whether the software would be working by the time the device becomes obsolete.
Latest release of FireFox is good enough to start tempting people to return from Chrome. It's more stable and faster than the mess that old FireFox was becoming.
Anyone know how many accounts they have in the UK? Is this all of them, or a smallish percentage?
Re: noted a 286 per cent growth in S/4HANA cloud in the latest quarter’s results...
You can always tell when cloud sales are failing when all the talk is about growth rates rather than money.
Looks like SAP are following Oracle into their strange world of unpleasant irrelevance.
Re: It's harmless
I think (hope) that you forget the joke icon,
Re: Up to date updates
Hmm - they wonder why the year of Linux on the desktop is always next year.
A new Linux Mint release - a thousand blogs are launched.
SAP's cloud offerings have failed
HANA has turned out to be an expensive distraction.
All that's left is to screw their existing customer base.
Wait until Zuck enters politics. He knows the FB audience and how to tweak opinions. Yes, he'll be forced to work arms-length from FB, but ....
web pages for adult daipers
And you keep asking - 'How do they know?'
I'm not sure Microsoft will be too concerned. Given what a pain it is to upgrade the OS on SQL Server or Exchange (hint: don't), they'd much rather you be paying monthly fees for Azure.
Personally, I'll be glad when I no longer need to RDP to Windows Server 2012. There's no start button and hovering in a corner of the screen isn't so easy with RDP.
Re: Stop mucking around
I guess I should have used the Joke icon for the 3 people with no sense of humour?
Stop mucking around
It's the Microsoft Hokey Cokey.
Put the feature in, the feature out, in, out, in out, shake it all about.
Santander UK – specifically for payments from American Express customers in the US to their suppliers in the UK.
How many transactions can there be? Seems very specific.
Paris cos she doesn't understand blockchain either.
Re: Good idea but
There was a big box like that available in the UK about 20 years ago. Very early days of online ordering. As far as I know, it's no longer available.
Just no demand at the time. Whether it was just too early of flawed in some other way, who knows?
Re: "The Russian ministry of defense is investigating"
The pictures that Russia put out were genuine. The scheming western media replaced them with pictures of a video game.
something new and shiny
Just tell the kids what time they're expected. If they don't turn up, they go hungry,
Re: How quaint
Alternatively, most DECT phones have the ability to page and make internal calls.
Tell my wife to bring me a beer.
I wonder how far up me she could push the little speaker.
Playing Candy Crush
You had nice warm hands though!
No, it's toilet humour. Somebody from the Carry On team is now working in marketing.
First the Priv, now the Motion.
Next the Kasi, with the robustness of the brick-built.
Lots of butthurt Tesla owners here?
There aren't lots of Tesla owners anywhere.
Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, look out for must-have toys that are 'easily hacked' ♪
Re: specific sequence of events huh
How far though? I had my ear bent by a security bod a few years ago about Bluetooth sniper - Bluetooth with Pringles tube or something to extend the range of BT.
Re: Who is Marc Rich?
What nobody wants to admit is that any decent Democratic candidate would have beaten Trump by a landslide. The only Democrat who would have done worse is Bernie Sanders.
On the other hand, any decent Republican would have beaten Clinton by a landslide.
If we get the politicians we deserve, the Americans have done something really bad!
Sopmething pretty for the ladies?
Could we be a little more patronising? How about a better shade of pink?
Why are councillors voting on this? Surely, they provide IT with a budget, IT decide how best to spend it based upon council requirements.
Bigger question - why didn't they check availability of software on Linux before the original migration?
Inject printers cheaper than Laser printers
You sure? nice and cheap to buy, but the ink!
