In defence of online ads: The 'net ain't free and you ain't paying

Or advertise could make adverts that dont move, dont flash dont play sound dont take up so much room i can not see any thing, an dont ruin the experience and then i would not have to block them, the more they get in your face the more you want to block them, to the point where you just dont give a crap about the web site your reading, you just want the adverts gone!

As for selling my data, i have been opting out of every dgpr web site that has asked to track me as fast as i can.

I have an issues with google voice search on my s8, where by every time i do a search, it says "we have noticed that you have turned off google voice tap here to turn it back on"

I keep dismissing it and they keep asking its been going on for months now, i dont want google voice always listening for me to to say OK google.

how many times do i have to dismiss a google message to get it to leave me a lone, feels like they are trying to nag me to give in and turn the dam thing on, tried contacting google the makers of android but they just say its samsungs fault and vice verse...

Three's money man reveals UK mobe firms' dark pricing dealings

Three not that good

To thous saying about tethering and not having problems, let me tell you there are plenty of problems tethering with 3, when i had my htc wildfire it did not cost me any extra to tether my laptop, now i have a "new" contract and S4 they want an extra fiver a month for me to tether, I tried it on my new phone not knowing that this was the case and it broke my phone for 3 days as three punished me for even daring to try it.

I pay for unlimited data so why does it matter if that data is coming from my phone or my laptop? I would not mind but I only even need to tether once a year, so its not worth 5 quid a month.

Its not like I dont get my data share in, as I am managing to Download 5 gig a month on my phone just using apps and such.

Pipex over bill

I had teh same thing pipex sent me a letter saying that they had not been billing me for some time and that i owed them £130.

I rang them up and said that there was no way i could pay that in one go.

They said that the payment would be cancelled and some one from finance would ring me back the next day and arrange installments.

No one rang, so i rang them only to be told that the payment had not been cancelled and there was no such department.

it was a good job i rang back as the new nice laddy canclled the payment and arrange a payment plan with me.

But once they are payed off i will probley be moving to some one else £35 a month for 4 meg when i dont even get 4 meg is simple not worth it in this day and age, the question is thou who will give me what i pay for?
