"declaring they can break the iPhone so that the department saves face."
That seems very plausible. They didn't want the matter debated anywhere that might result in a legal precedent, and they can re-think their strategy for next time. If I was the magistrate, I would ask to see the alleged phone data.
"Do HP even offer such a choice?"
Have they even considered it? Sales of lightly used PC's with Win 7 on seem very buoyant ATM (s/h values are surprisingly high) which you'd think they might have noticed, but then it is HP.
I'm so old I remember when those initials meant something.
I've always thought that the only reason Dyson cleaners didn't 'lose suction' was because they never had much to begin with. We bought a cheap 'bagged' cleaner a while ago and find that having the rubbish all bagged up ready to go in the bin when it's full a real advantage (it doesn't fill the kitchen with dust, for a start). Also, the new bag is also a new filter and thoroughly affordable at 50p a pop. I'd suggest a patent, but I gather it's rather an old idea...
Dysons are style over substance.
I heard Roger Witcombe, too, and of course no-one on the Today programme had the wit (or knowledge) to tell him that smart meters were, in fact, a hindrance to switching suppliers - the exact reverse of what he had just stated. But then, anything remotely Green is given a free pass by the Beeb, who only believe what they read in the Grauniad, anyway!
"...government policies on power generation..."
I think he means the EU directives on CO2 production (still mythically linked with global warming) that require early closure of fossil-fuel power stations and the erroneous belief that they can be replaced by wind turbines and PV panels, aka 'unreliables'. Hence the increasing likelihood of power cuts.
Golden age then. At least it's not just me...
Ain't it just? I have long wondered where the 50% uptake figure came from, and why that implies that the other 50% can then be ignored. IIRC, the digital TV switch required >90% of users to have necessary receivers, and I suspect that most households have more radios than TV's. I should also like to know how many DAB radio owners are classified as users when they operate it in FM...
