i've said it before .....
.......what do you expect for ~ £3.60 a month ?
If people insist on running their life blood and income source on something that costs so little, why expect so much when it goes wrong ?
i feel very sorry for everyone who's lost data, ive been there and its a total nightmare especially having to explain to customers its just "gone".
do yourself a favour and either pay for SLA backed managed hosting or run your own server and backup yourself - you only have yourself to blame then :)
1Gb Data a month - Really ?
Do people really "survive" with 1Gb of data a month ? seems a low figure these days with always on email, internet, streaming etc not to mention large app updates.
I personally am on Vodafone and fine the service excellent - no complaints here - never had a data issue and coverage has been more than acceptable whilst travelling even Europe-wide.
That said, I've never had to contact them so that may be the thorn in the side when things go TU !
Just my 99p worth
My dad's just had an ICD fitted
the docs programmed it using what looked to me like a bluetooth receiver plugged into a PC
The ICD communicates with a "box" plugged into the phone line at home so it can dial back to the hospital info about how he is.
It also has a radio transmitter so if i "goes off" when hes out and about, the hospital monitoring station are aware and will contact him to see if all is ok
Mine ran warm and connx dropped out.
I mounted it on the wall using the 2 keyhole screw holes on the back. worked fine after that.
Kelly (the company not the guy) came round before crimbo and replaced it. I asked him why they were replacing it, and he told me its to make it work faster !!
what a load of nonsense
its clear for anyone with a brain to see that Windows isn't going anywhere any time soon. I like Windows, its easy to manage (IMHO) (and I look after around 4000 users of all differing abilities). I like Linux too, but at the end of the day, I am a technical person. My dad has trouble finding the power button on his PC, never mind giving him an unfamiliar OS, with unfamiliar software to use. At the end of the day, its simple, Windows is familiar. Until people either take a leap and use something else, of Microsoft stop making Windows and associated software familiar, people will and will keep on using it.
I don't get it...
Why shouldn't Google favour its own services ?
if you don't want to see it, don't use Google.
I don't see what the issue is. when you shop in Tesco, they don't show adverts for Asda do they.
CHOICE is the name of the game.
I love Google. They give me free email, free storage, free maps, free searches etc etc
everyone's an expert
Seems to me like it's fair game.
As far as I can see, wikileaks leaks shit to the world, and now that world has turned on it's head and Assange and his mega-corp-wanna-be is being served some of their own medicine.
I can hardly see a day when he is going to be sat in court facing charges of rape, more so of harming the public interest with the materials leaked to the masses.
Let's just sit back and see what money can buy, or should I say WHO money can buy.
I dont get it.
all you knobs out there moaning about Google's done this, Google's done that, oh i dont want my front garden on streetview, and now i have to use my mobile number for a free email account.
Its easy... DONT USE FUCKING GOOGLE
no one is forcing you to, there no compelling reason. there are literally thousands of email providers, or as one of you said, run your oen if your porn filled, viagra advertising, daily horoscope emails are that precious and private to YOU.
Get on with life - people are dying in the world.
Me, I love Google. Its great. Its fast, and they give it me for free.
Paris, cos she knows a good thing when shes got it.
