AT&T squeezes wannabe iPhone upgraders

Lionel Baden

so it would be cheaper

to cancel your contract pay off the existing phone then start a new contract

oh wait thats only 10 more expensive !!!

In a contract that goes 2 years why not offer an early upgrade offer thats not unreasonable

the prices they seem to be charging are unbeleivable

hopefully people will now realize they have always been paying way to much for a bit of shiny plastic that doesnt really do much except scroll pages up and down.

oh yeah and the odd phone call

IT Angle

@brent gardner

workstations, A/V should mainly be seen as a defense against thumb drives, since they can't be controlled by network policy. You should already be blocking known spammers, porn and warez websites, bit torrent, etc. So those should not be entry points anyway. If they are, you're doing something wrong.

Oh my god how wrong can you be !!!!

just disable it in the bios and protect the registry and change usbstor from 3 to 4

That can be done Via a GPO which hang on 1 second ... ITS A NETWORK POLICY !!!!

gah i understand what your trying to say but your wrong

we manage multiple companies remotley which means we cant lock things down at all.

and then ontop of that they dont browse porn there and they dont download warez

But they get shit loads of bugs trying to get in via email but we use groupshield which is a AV product that stops at least 300 odd trojans a day

then we have AV on all the machines and still bugs get on ... (facebook private email etc )

please explain should i go to the director and say lets get rid of all your protection you dont need it !

bloody hell your daft !

Kept me reading all the way through prolly could of done another 12 pages and i would of read them.

Needed bucket o' Sunshine somewhere in there even if somebody else coined the phrase !

Personally i think that phrase should be used in every conversation regarding nukes.

@They were never actually used, how do we know they were any good?

UK jobs market: Bad but getting worse more slowly

Lionel Baden

wow it took that long

For managers to realise that it staff keep things running smoothly !!!

the amount of offices i go into and nothing really works because they have tried to save money by not calling us out is amazing.

It also tends that they cant really work or a simple job of e.g. scanning to email doesnt work and the process is made twice as long

BT slammed for 'importing' cheap Indian contractors

Lionel Baden

@not just BT

actually i am finding alot more companies are dropping indian call centers because of the amount of hate they get for having offshore centers

I have thought about dropping bt because of their call centers but then again nobody else will give as reliable a service.

Might just cough up the extra few quid and get a business line

Microsoft's Bing feeds you, tries to keep you captive

Lionel Baden

it will be in the results !

i have used google for years even had a gmail account when it was invite only.

But lately microsoft are getting my attention

e.g. free push mail with live.com account (have a old hermes running WM6.1)

Would of prefered gmail but this actually seems to be doing quite well.

I do get a tad annoyed to the amount of comercial stuff i get in my google searches considering i dont really buy off the internet :/ if i do i go to names i already know e.g. argos cpc maplin.

If they can deliver decent resuts without to much crap for buying stuff i will be happy

Google is a automated shopping trolley now :(

AMD locks and loads 'Istanbul' six-shooter

Lionel Baden

@6 cores

well multi core rendering is getting better so even on a dual core machine 1 program will sit accross both core and still get issues with background applications

So if i happen to have 6 cores and a program is developed to run across 4 e.g. UT3, i agree not perfect but it does work and other programs are being developed that will run across cores much better. but it leaves room for other background apps and OS to function

Personally i would love to see the OS contained to 1 core, And then background Apps assigned to another core, which then powers down unused cores untill needed

Google Wave - interwebs idealism in real-time

Lionel Baden

@AC 07:23

its worrying to think i may be becoming a M$ fanboi (i would love to be using linux but its not practical :( )

But i wouldnt count google as anti windows tbh

i dont have a prob with other products, as long as they are good :) (i will openly admit a serious dislike of macs though (had to network macs back in 1999 affected me for life !))

only thing that was starting to tickle me is to keep on re-reading the same article expressed slightly differently by another author.

"To many cooks" comes to mind.

i like the reg dont really want to go anywhere else to get my news. also love the comments section

Shifty study proclaims Brits a nation of freetards

From this observation the researchers make some dizzying statistical assumptions to draw up a guesstimate of overall piracy losses, which they claim run into the billions:

Critical Windows vulnerability under attack, Microsoft warns

Irish politico in Facebook jub-rub outrage

Apple counts $1bn for mystery data center

Lionel Baden

@the cube

Actually sticking a large data center will help an area just by association !

The council tax it will bring it wil boost the surrounding area and telecommunications will be improved nearby

Not only security guards they will also need canteen staff cleaners etc etc etc

So yes they will bring in expert staff and then build nice new developments for them also improving the area

so for once I am happy to go along with th politicos on this one because although they are doing it their usual way (Downright sneaky and probably illegal) its ending up doing the right thing !!

p.s. sorry to all grammer nazi's !

Microsoft loses NZ Windows government deal

Lionel Baden


basically the NZ gov thought they could probably push M$ around stating fine we will just go Open Source

bet M$ will be feeling very smug whilst they try and change over for the next few decades !!

I mean hohnestly can you imagine trying to switch the UK gov over to linux !!

were not just talking about 1 system health care, traffic systems, police, out of office workers,

@Why not just hire a few developers

well for starters they are around X20 more expensive.

there are not as many to hire.

oh boy the list goes on !!

i dont really have any issues with linux except it doesnt just work :(

Really wish it did. I really wish i could just install it on my system play all the games i normally play.

If i install hardware i want to be able to just download a driver and use it.

Linux please stop making so many different versions. just stick to 1 and make it usable for everybody. and then get all these people making multiple versions to make drivers instead !!!

Then we will be very happy !!!
