Re: Thought experiment
Or even...imagine a world where BlockChain isn't a license to print money or pivots into something else entirely and he needs to leave this hallowed job he has found, or maybe they just don't like him and get him out...
Well then a simple Google search (ouchy!) will turn up him slating people by name and the company, not once but twice!...I don't think I would want him on my team
"Ironically, VMware are unable to offer a DR for services running in its cloud, their DR is only for on prem systems."
Indeed, I found this almost unbelievable when I looked it all up and had to ask a few VMWare Partners to check.
Its a very strange set up, otherwise as a national charity already running VMWare we would have hopped straight in their cloud. It was only that and not having a suitable partner available that stopped us.
Still loving my Toshiba...
...with 720p HD.
Got it about 8 years ago and it still works just fine, a good all rounder. I have always found watching 3D and massive films at cinemas that after about 10 mins I forget it's all 3D and massive and stuff (bar Prometheus and Pacific Rim).
It just doesn't interest me I don't think. Maybe because I don't watch big action movies that often.
Re: Please start being parents...
"Have you tried talking to any teachers of reception year and infants recently? I think you'll find that they are constantly having to teach kids that "Sharp things cut?" and "Hot things burn?" usually with side lessons in things like how to hold a knife and fork."
Agreed. Some of them turn up to my girlfriend's classes in their first term still wearing nappies.
Very much the same with the business users here, they do go pale when told if they break in anything other than a freak accident or get lost they will be paying for the replacement. Also require Police crime numbers to report it as stolen to get another seems to put people off.
We do get very few breakages here!
Its what I would expect of any company I worked for. The number of people I had saying their old iPhone may break near the time the new one came out was scary.

@ Peter R. 1
That would be a more general industry question to be brought up at one of the big conferences they love doing for the industry now, CEBIT I think its called.
I am for one am pleased its starting to go this way again as it means, being a lite-ish user I will not be thinking about all day where will I charge it and how much should I use it. That is much harder on holiday as I found out recently!
Its an issue I have with current HTC One S.
Either way not too churlish as they are company devices so not going to argue against a new phone!
Not at all
I run a network for 2 care companies (used to be 3) of around 100 desktops each. As most apps are delivered via terminal server I only want reliability, the future tech is for someone else to deal with.
I imagine you are speaking as a gamer, although I did work in a simulations environment and probably wouldn't have bought Intel boards there.
Re: The sky is falling! the sky is falling!
Wow, that is an amazingly naive point of view to take.
The creation of images is in itself the act taking place, if you can stop the availability of images then hopefully you can do something to stop some of the abuse.
They are not claiming to eradicate the problem but hopefully the multiple angle approach should help in some way, even if it's just closing the legal loopholes mentioned.
Ahhh an AC post
Well done there mate, great that you know exactly what happened here and whose fault it is, why it happened and also understand the relationship between the two companies.
And then to round it off by you are that you are better than the rest of society because you are happy to wait for news on the project.
Best post I have read for a long time on here, made me smile anyway.
So I am going to go to Game over HMV because they have free wifi? At least you will be able to check their prices against the rivals quicker!
What surprises me more is the fact they are wasting time and money involving BT, it would be easy to get some half decent IT team to layer on another set off wi-fi over their existing, or in addition to their existing networks.
I really do be continue to be disappointed by the amount work BT get by default because they are name every one knows.
Never got this...
"Google is the subject of an antitrust investigation into alleged abuses of the advertising market: one complaint is that it favours its own websites and services higher in the rankings than they should be."
If they own the website then surely they can organise it how they want?! Or am I missing something?
I wouldn't be in the least bit surprised if I made a website same as an existing Google product and came second.
There is logic
If they didn't pay for all the full legal bells and whistles (its only small anyway) then I bet they saved a few million on each side anyway so probably kept that as purchase price reward for a quicky deal.
(Work in a company with acquisitions going on all the time and legal fees can be eye watering even though they are only relatively small deals of £1-2m).
I like it, just because he didn't follow protocol everyone has a go, I bet if did it the other way and it cost a fortune the same people would also LOL.
Re: A plague on all of them
Oh dear, as the above poster said you are just stigmatising a new technology.
Various things have been on the brink of destroying "the good old days" and general social skills, to name just a few:
1) The Walkman
2) The Gameboy and handheld games machines
3) Computer games
4) TV in general
5) Text messaging
And thats just from my youth.
Re: Peole don't say tablet - they say iPad
I agree with you on those points.
Are you telling me people test out the apps on both and buy the one with the highest quality? Of course not.
They buy what people are using on the TV (think of Jake on Beeb F1 that has to be best placement ever for their market!), on the adverts and in the stores.
Plus you are right with the name as well.
