Whilst working for a reseller, someone broke into the warehouse overnight and stacked up boxed, brand new laptops to reach some low end end PC's which were up on the shelving

Hurricane Sandy: Where are all the cynical online scams?


The Easiest Way

If you want to keep them on for a while, just tell them that your PC is in the attic and your phone is downstairs and neither are mobile, add more time for finding a pencil and paper to write things down a few mistakes and then an argument about access to the PC, well over half an hour and that's without getting creative

Three prunes prices of smartphone contracts


I read it that way as well

Seems to be that 3 prunes are worth a max of £30, so this must actually be a measured in the same way as promised Internet speed. A prune would then be up to* £10 (depending on how far away you are from the "branch" network)

Unlimited is allowed to be limited

According to the Advertising standards agency if a FUP is mentioned and that only a small minority of atypical users exceed the FUP, it is deemed to be "unlimited" for the majority of users and so allowed. If you wanna get this changed, make a complaint on asa.org.uk and also cap.org.org and see if you can get them to use the dictionary version of unlimited as opposed to the marketing definition of unlimited

One Device To Rule Them All

Why do the manufacturers seem to think that we all want one device that does everything so-so or badly. The best analogy I can come up with was the argument against IE being part of Windows."a screwdriver is a useful tool, but it doesn't make it more useful by glueing it to your hand". Because you can do something doesn't mean that you should

Apple under siege: Antitrust probes and product delays ...



The difference is that, if Apple do the subscription, the developer no longer has to pay for hosting, bandwidth, availability, payment control, security and all those other things that happen when you start selling content through a website.

Ok so I wish to subscribe click on the link/button and pay, how much bandwidth does that take?

the cost for hosting 5 or 10 lines of text?

availabilty, we ll that's down to the publisher of the material you are subscribing to nothing to do with Apple.

Security I'm sure any company that was offering online payment will have this in place already or just back it off to the company who is actually handling the transaction (and as a clue in neither case is it Apple)

So lets see my shopping list is 1)providing a link/button on/through a website and 2)hosting 10 lines of text.....anyone care to give me some pricing for this?
