Seems to depend where you are. In central London, maybe you see all sorts. Sitting on the train from York to London, everyone seems to have a Blackberry. They often have a 2nd phone - iPhone normally. Maybe it's different at the weekend when people who don't travel for business are around?
Must be an idiot to start mucking about with stuff like that on a server. Change happens, get over it.
HyperV really is great in the latest release. Just need to get my DC onto Server 2012, but it's a slow process when migrating from SBS - just too much to lose if it goes wrong.
Every freelancer/contractor will have a right of substitution clause in their contract. Outsourcing your own work is the perfect way out of an IR35 investigation. Provided there is no security clause they're doing nothing wrong.
Pretty sure employees aren't allowed to though.
I've been using Windows 8 on non-touchscreen PC and laptops for a while now.
Not missing the start button, typing what I need is quicker and made me realise how I'd stopped using the Start button in windows 7, preferring to search.
BIG problem is that the 'modern' apps don't appear in the task bar, so as soon as you're using a mixture of 'modern' and 'proper' apps, switching becomes fiddly.
For me, HyperV was enough of a reason to upgrade, but not convinced many people care about that!
OK, I admit it - I'm the one with a PlayBook, so will probably stick with BlackBerry. Once a proper keyboard's been bolted to this, may upgrade from my 9700. Will definitely upgrade if they allow you to disable the touch screen - driving my wife nuts on her 9900 - touch phone to ear, turn on speaker phone.
They don't need DRM on music any more - they have so much of the market, they might as well let you play it elsewhere. There's such a Apple focussed infrastructure in so many houses now, people will continue to buy apple.
Must admit though, 7" seems a far more sensible screen size. My PlayBook fits nicely in a Barbour pocket. iPad's are just too big to carry around, though lots of people seem to manage.
It's Luxembourg tax that's paid, not UK. Really annoying if you're a business user as Amazon will neither issue a VAT refund or, more correctly, zero rate the VAT. Apparently, Kindles are not allowed to be used for business use, if you complain, you're breaking the Terms and conditions. They can then delete all your books.
Next time, I'm buying a Kobo.
Not too worried about the full start menu - rarely use it anyway. most of the time I just type the name of the application into the search box. The way WIndows 8 implements this is really nice - just type and they all appear quickly.
However, I'd install this just to be rid of the metro tiles - if I wanted giant application icons littering the screen, I'd just muck up my display settings.
So long as jump list still work, I may now think about the move to Win 8.
