HP is looking for a way to commercialise its latest break technology, that thing of the memristor or whatever its called. It was said, this could be *cough* a paradigm change in memory technology... See BOOGLE for more details.

Two angles

On the whole VM cable network is excellent delivery mechanism, ADSL is really a poor cousin. The VM back end is REALLY POOR. I myself am responsible for having them change their email support practices; how is it a call centre operative can open my mailbox and talk me through my list of emails without my permission? If its possible, they'll do it, even just for fun; I do know some call centre workers and you don't want to know what fun they have with your accounts.

Cmon in

Heard about these some time ago; quite some time ago 6 years to be exact.... Glad to see BT has licensed them and included them in new installations.

It is still however, a poor replacement for fibre as the aging copper will not manage to make it (in some cases) another 90 years!

BT, have some bran, its good for your diet!

Oh I could say so much

about this issue and what ends some will go to protecting their investment. Its now a process whereby we're stuck with what the OFCOM quango wants us to have, via heavily lobbied polys'. The reality could be so much different.

And it wasn't named 802.11 "R" for nothing.....

Been affected by this

I've been affected by non secure communications in the past and currently battling with unusualities, I for one would endorse the secure all approach and have done so for quite some time. Also, I have switched on https.
