Don't you just hate it when that happens...

Welcome to our world MSFT!

UK to get Vauxhall Ampera a year after the rest of Europe

Wait until 2012

"looks like the UK won't get a right-hand drive Vauxhall Ampera until sometime in 2012."

I guess this is a sign that Vauxhall either don't expect the UK economy to pickup until late 2011 or they are holding off until a later date so that they can assess the market conditions.

decide on the technology first

shoehorn the requirements into it at a later date. Ermm excellent solution to getting Public IT out of the mess it is currently in.

How about a novela pproach that is extremely daring........

Get the requirements right before chosing a partner and technology!!!!!!

Why do I get the feeling that this investment is less about technology and more about getting one over on MSFT.

Windows 7 first beta due January 2009

Whilst I am not an ardent MSFT basher, I see the benefits of multiple operating systems, you comment, frankly doesn't hold water.

If the 32bit Windows 2008 server can address the full 4GB with PAE enabled, and I can fully load my Ubuntu distro, with server kernel and 4GB usable RAM, Windows 7 32 bit should be able to access the full 4GB ram.

Even if more is used by the kernel for caching, I don't care. I paid for 4GB, I want 4GB. As a consumer if the OS doesn't allow me to realise the benefits of my hardware, change the OS !!

478.80 for a phone

Let me just reiterate this, “Price from 478.80”…

For a fucking mobile phone!!!! And this just to make some phone calls, maybe send some SMS and at best sync email or take a picture...

HBOS could shift 2,000 IT jobs to India

What next

Whilst I am disgusted at this countries strategy to outsource skilled positions. Outsourcing is simply a quick-win solution to an organisations inability to invest in its own staff. How many of these corporates promote "Employee of Choice" and "Investor in People".

On the other-hand, I can't wait until "in-law" outsourcing becomes fashionable... I'd buy that for a dollar.

Microsoft may lift VM licensing restrictions next week

Kobayashi Gimp

The the biggest unanswered question is...

Why did it take Microsoft to release a hyper-visor before they realised that their licensing model was restrictive? Would they be reviewing their licensing terms if they had not shipped hyper-v?

I've got crumbs on my RFC1918

Nice to see our gov pays as much attention to website development as they do national development.
