Apple to take iPad orders this week?

Scott Millar

what's missing from the ipad?

Simple, a wireless HDMI port. Imagine being able to link with your TV wirelessly, download you movie and beam to your 1080p telly. To me if someone want to dominate the tablet market they need to be thinking of a soultion like this.

As I can't stand having a PC under my TV no matter how small and quiet .

HP blames falling pound for PC and server price rises

The £ is dirt buy gold.

Oil has come down in price but we are still paying the same at the pump. Why? Well because oil is priced in dollars and the dollar has gained strength. It will go back to a 2:1 after the US elections have past us.

As for hardware, infaltion is everywhere. Buy gold.

You'd think there would BT would have a backup plan for this type of incident? What if a bomb went of near an exchange?

Today is not Hadron Collider Day

Scott Millar

What a let down

So true they are just testing the beams in one direction, not smashing them together. We will have to wait! Why the media have latched on today i don't know! We need a new date, lets say around 2012, when we are supposed to have a real doomsday.

Citrix boss wants data center 'dinosaurs' to evolve

Scott Millar
Thumb Up

I like citrix

I don't think it's a relic, citrix is perfect for my network. 60 remote sites 1-2 workstations and 4 remote offices. All login via a web interface. My head office are all on thin terminals. If anything goes wrong all I have to do is look at the servers no need to travel. It's centrally managed which saves my compnay a lot of ££ otherwise we'd need another IT person.

Scottish government drafts Cat Welfare Code

Scott Millar

what a waste of tax money

There is someone sitting in an office somewhere in edinurgh pumping this bullsh$t out. We are paying for it.

This was probably consulted on of course so any fee was 4 times as much for creating this bullsh$t.

I think we need a wellfare code on office IT Admins.

Personal data for 650,000 customers vanishes into thin air

Scott Millar

I like how JC Penny will be offering 12 months credit monitoring for anyone that's info was "lost".

Our goverement should also be offering free credit monitoring due to the recent data losses at more than one goverment department.
