Yet more shit hover over crap to pop up on my screen as I am scrolling down a page using my wheel.
I can see this tech heading into things like Picassa Online Album and assigning sales ads to people personal pictures.
i.e. Look at picture of friend in Armani Jeans, hover over jeans and get ads for £2.99 jeans from Tesco.
My biggest complaint is that the software is too frigging expensive especially when 1-2 years later I change phone and have to buy it all again. I think people expect to pay £20+ for software on a big box PC but not on an iddy biddy phone. It is all in the mind and my price point for a Phone App is up to £5, but for a fiver i expect it to do miracles.
My 2 year old does not have or need a mobile phone but apparently needs a seat so will therefore need a boarding pass.
Great holiday that will be, "now sweetie, Mummy and Daddy are off to florida to see Buzz Lightyear but you will have to stay with Nanny and Grandad as mean old Uncle Sam says you are a terrorist."
Why does every fucking touch screen phone have to be compared to the fucking iPhone. There were touch screen phones around before the iPhone and there will be touch screen phone around after the iPhone.
Try being orginal and compare the devices in their market sector rather than the current must have toy.
And, historically, Americans like to buy HTC (WinMo) & Blackberry. Also the iPhone will have taken a bite of Nokia's share globally too from the consumer side of things.
To me these figures are not saying much, just that the Americans are finally waking up to the real world.
I assume there is no termination fee on (say) 02 to 02 calls? Oh of course, more chance to do us out of our valuable minutes.
If this means cheaper calls then it should mean more minutes too. Though I am sure the networks will worm out of this one.
And who pays termination fees when it goes from 02 to BT Landline?
Why did they already have his identity on their systems? Isn't this where the DPA comes in protection of data held, not on data gathering. They do need his consent to send him marketing but not to talk to him or his representative.
This seems a little bit odd.
Couldn't organise a piss-up in a brewery
My sister left them to go to Sky and they continued to charge her, when she asked for it back, instead of getting her money back Tiscalli called the Bailiffs in to collect the money they had already collected.
To this day she still does not have the money although the hounds are no longer involved. It actually took my sister to send the Bailiffs the letters to get them to go away. Being nice bailiffs they didn't say anymore or apologise for their lord and masters mistake.
Shirley the E71 is as "viable [an] alternative to Blackberry and Windows Mobile devices" as the iPhone. Infact as the E series is designed for enterprise, compared to the consumer iPhone it would seem to be far more viable.
And then he disguards both platforms (Symbian/Apple) as being in "Front Ends" for Exchange so is making a play for Blackberry/RIM vs Windows Mobile/Exchange.
WTF mention the iPhone (or even breifly E71) in the first place.
Oh and doesn't Symbian have Blackberry connect (and I would expect Applt to have it too at some point)? Wouldn't this make a platform more compelling being able to connect to any solution rather than the single connection solutions from Microsoft Phones and RIM Phones?
and the bastard gates still manage to wipe it out. I only had the latest one for 2 days. According the the ticket office I changed it at they are getting hundreds per week with the same problem, it is all down to the software used for the gates.
Crap system that slows me down even more. What was wrong with paper tickets again?
Train operators stopped auto refunds to season ticket holders years ago, actually about the time of privatisation. At one time they would extend tickets based on past performance. Now they increase the price based on past performance.
Bad year = Above Inflation Rise
Good Year = Mega Above Inflation Rise.
Are Viacom going after the Uploaders, Watchers or Just Google.
If I watched a video (not a full programme/episode) not knowing it contained footage from a Viacom programme would I be liable for paying to watch it?
This could open up a massive can of worms regarding the watching/listening of any copyrighted material whether intentional or not. How do you prove that you have intentionally streamed the video/music. With embedded vids and music on sites it is almost impossible to avoid.
As an non-Cambridgeite who has both commuted (Science park.Milton) and shopped in Cambridge I have both driven and used the trains.
1. Park & Ride, great idea except a car with 1 passenger is cheaper to park than a family/full car of 4/5. It is cheaper to park in Cambridge if you are travelling as a group in one car. (though this is true of most P&R schemes)
2. Train station - is a good distance from the town and the buses are quite frankly crap, in most cases get a bus to the central bus station then get a bus from there to your destination.
3. Girton Interchange - this is one of the worst thought out junctions in the UK. If the A14 at Bar Hill is bloked it f*cks up the entire network in all directions - North (A14), South (M11) East (A14),West(A428) and and is quicker to travel round the ring road/through the centre.
4. Good train links from London & Peterbrough but what about those of us who are close enough in Bedfordshire/North Herts to use Cambridge as a social centre/work place but are between Hitchin & Peterborough. (ok a personal gripe)
5. Increased housing in the vicinity (Cambourne etc) but no compeliing reason to use Cambridge.
Sort out the infrastructure and you might get people interested.
there is no point in making it secret if the tw*ts can't keep it secret. If it was open information then no one would bother looking at it as it would not be worth looking at as everyone would know what it contains and there would be no advantage to anyone.
Look, if everyones CC details, DOB, Bank, Address etc was openly available what would be the point in identity fraud, we would all be able to defraud the fraudsters and the value of the information would be 0.
While we are at it lets get rid of money, and shops, and 'pooters and t'internet.
Right I am off to live in Brazil in the Mountains close to Peru and shoot arrows from my trusty bow at unmanned drone aircraft.
Now shall I paint myself red, blue yellow, orange, green or purple?
Mine is the tin of body paint by the radiator.
