BT's outgoing CEO: He's officially gone, but he'll score £1m in pay, pension until Oct


Re: BT

Exactly the same experience at the BBC. A thriving organisation (when I joined in the 80s) was utterly destroyed with the arrival of John Birt (darling of the tories) filling it with accountants and consultants ... followed rapidly a ridiculous internal market and everything being monetised ...

I’m at a loss as to how anyone thinks this way of running companies actually does any good . It always seems to destroy so much , apart from line the pockets of a few .

The BBC is a husk now and costs even more to run than it did before they started .... well done bean counters !

No, that Sunspot Solar Observatory didn't see aliens. It's far more grim


Utter BS story.

So obvious that something else was afoot.

iPhone 8 now outsells X, and every other phone


We’ve been here before

The release of the Xphone reminded me strongly of the release of the dreadful 20th anniversary Mac. Basically a lower end Mac dolled up to be more futuristic, but basically nothing new. A symbol of a company that had totally lost its way (Gil Amelio was boss at the time).

Steve Jobs returned, released the iMac and stopped the rot ...

Unfortunately he’s dead .

Major achievements for our current bespectacled boss are...

1. Removing headphone jack . ( a truly idodic decision).

2. Totally turning back on pro market ( though this was decided a decade ago ).

3. Making money ( very good at that).

Brace yourselves, fanboys. Winter is coming. And the iPhone X can't handle the cold


‘ You’re coldlng it wrong .’

You guys nailed it... hilarious :-)

Almost as funny as buying a 1000 pound device that doesn’t work in the cold ...

... at least it doesn’t spontaneously combust though !

VPN logs helped unmask alleged 'net stalker, say feds

London Mayor backs talks with Uber after head honcho's apology


Re: Uber has Objectionable Practices But So Do . . .

What's losing steam at Apple? Pretty much everything


Yes ... History repeating itself.

As an Apple user since the II ... Witnessing the catastrophic management based disaster culminating in Gil Amelio < millions of shit variations of the same product and the death spiral to near bankruptcy > till his return and the iMac and all the followed..,. The writing is on the wall..

Tiscali TV's Italian cousin gets whacked

Thumb Down

Bag of Shite

So I was a very happy Homechoice customer for almost as long as the service existed.

Then Tiscali bought the operation and it feel apart...

I personally had no TV service at all for two months as a result of 'upgrades' then followed by the new STB and utterly shit modem combination which was as stable as a dog stading on it's hind legs whilst balancing several revolving plates on its nose with a tazer up its arse!

To compound matters the customer service totally fell apart...

I know I am in a HUGE silent majority of Homechoice customers who got screwed. It went from been a very good service to a very shit one.

Thank god I left!

404 Correction


404 is the internets way of telling you to F**k Off.

The common use of 404 as far as I and my colleagues are concerned is F**k Off.


p.s. Paris ... cos she likes to 404
