BT 118 phone number fee howler lands telco giant with £225k fine

Re: I'm amazed people use premium rate numbers

The £81 bill is actually easy to achieve. When you get your number, they ask if you want to be connected. They don't always make it clear that you're still paying £1.50 upwards a minute in the call after they connect you. An absolutely disgusting tactic.

Confused BBC tech chief: Only 600 Linux users visit our website

Will you BBC/MS bashers get a life

In the end the priority for the BBC should be to support the dominant OS at the time they ** TRIAL ** the service they are offering. Their using MY licence fee to trial the service and i wouldn't expect them to spend £200k+ on developing a version for each other MINORITY OS in the world.

Where do we stop? ZX81? FFS....

For all you Mac/Linux/Unix/ - inserts OS users... I wouldnt mind that they would develop for that system and that it was all DRM free, but lets just find out if the "dreaded" WMP/WIN combination actually has a decent enough take up to merit investing in other OS's or even continuing with the whole scheme (which by the way they don't have to offer at all)....

Stop whining!
