Yay - More value-added content I don't want
Can't wait to move to another provider. Shame they are all so bad... (Still miss my 14Mb O2 ADSL service - more reliable than the 30Mb Infinity connection I have in my new house.)

If they had forced car manufactures to have DAB radios and made FM radios hard to buy I could see it happen but without that it stands no chance. After all why would I pay for a new DAB radio for the car and buy a new alarm clock/radio just for the chance to listen to stations I can already access via FM.
Unlike Freeview I just don't see the need for digital radio. It just seems like a solution looking for a problem! If it wasn't for the government looking to sell off unused FM bandwidth DAB would be dead already.
I recently moved - told sky/o2 I wouldn't be taking their service with me. Didn't seem to interested in fighting to keep me once I said I had no wish to deal with them. Took out BT infinity as ADSL was only ~4Mb - not massively impressed - o2 was more reliable using iplayer at peak times. Hoping for a small FTTC provider to emerge once my 18 months are up...
Must have really small hands. I can use my 5.3" note 1, one handed all the time and its absolutely fine as long as I don't need to touch a tiny <1cm square on the top left corner (which you really don't need to touch when texting, calling etc). I have distinctly average man hands and soon got completely use to it...
Got a Sagem Freeview HD box a while back. It got a single update to support iplayer but its never worked (It always skips forward during replay for no reason). Sagem seem to have given up with it. I thought 'freesat' where supposed to be tightly controlling of hardware released with the freesat logo... I guess the software part is more flexible however. I'm not holding my breath my box will ever support youtube!
I get calls from BT on an almost weekly basis trying to sell Bt Infinity. When I explain I am not interested (as I'm trying to sell the house so don't want a fixed term contract) and could they not call again with the same offer they apologise, promise not to call again and hang up. This same pattern has been repeating for months. They did the same thing when I had line rental from a different firm. They really need to learn to listen. Can't wait to find another option (that isn't virgin media).
Wouldn't a $1B discount on Surface not be a better idea? People aren't going to spend more than an ipad on the surface - Its clear from sales - So why not use that cash to push the price of buying one down to android tab prices? Might get some market share then and then mind share might just work...
I really hate Bt. I hate there services, there poor customer support, the adverts and the we're so good why don't you want to use us attitude. Unfortunately the only alternative is the extremely uselss Virgin media so I guess I'm stuck until we get some competition!
Anon as I don't want them having any excuse to make my service worse!
Coat as I want to leave their services!
I've still got two or three sets of 3.11 on Dell branded floppy disks (and DOS 6.22).
I remember fixing problems by extracting files manually from the install disks to replace the corrupt files on the hard disk. Vista really doesn't like you doing that.
Also I can remember it being far easier to install than Redhat 5. Those were the days (And I'm only 27).
(Pirate flag - No stupid licenses keys to lose!!!)
Developing for IE6 is hair pulling irritating - Please can MS just kill it off and force everyone onto IE7 - At least that supports XmlHttpRequest as is. Hopefully (although I'm not convinced) IE8 will at least be comparable to FF2 in terms of standards compliance.
And I have to agree with the previous comments - Doing something that should be simple just takes an age to complete in IE.
Having used SP1 for a month or so (Got via MSDN subscription), it makes Vista a lot more responsive!
I no longer use XP on my home PC. I don't know why people love the out dated interface of XP.
In 5 years time we'll be having the same argument about Vista's replacement verses Vista.
P.S I'm no M$ fanboy - I'm a Linux developer with a ubuntu powered mythtv box.
The majority of PS3 only have a 40Gb hard disk. As someone with a myth tv box with 120Gb hard disk I can tell you the recordings will take up to much space.
Also my myth box has only cost me £80 with dual tuners - I can connect to it over the internet and backup recordings to DVD. Why would I want to spend £99 on this thing?
After my broadband connect was acquired by tiscali (f2s > pipex > tiscali) the service has been abysmal at around 6 o'clock each night for the last week.
Never had a problem for last 4 years I've been with F2s. Needless to say I won't be renewing when I move house at the end of the year.
I've been using the Alpha's for months (Posting this with Alpha 8). I know its not recommend but I haven't had a crash or bug that I know of and I tend to leave it run 5 days a week.
I think the Mozila Devs just have a really high quality outlook which is causing them to rate bugs higher than needed.
And I love it. Small, cheap and fairly rugged. And as an added bonus no windows tax.
It'll take a while for the Linux community to remove the silly limitations ASUS/Xandros have put in (software choice and simple interface) but the works half way done. See the www.eeeuser.com forums.
