I've frequently used 2nd user kit, at one point a previous employer was getting 2nd user kit for pennies in the pound.
Dell desktop £39.00
r710 Servers £500
MD3000i £2000 (ish depending on disks)
We built up a good working relationship with a reseller, and made damn sure our backup strategies worked (LTO5 Tape drives £500)
Occasionally projects required a longer lead time, while resellers hunted down the kit we required.
The staff here thank you, due to this article I have been able to provide them with the business app they have been clamoring for since our last phone upgrade.
What will probably kill this dead before it goes much further, is a lot of apps that also appear in the BB World market are pay for on Blackberry. so getting these apps for free from the Android Market is probably legally the same as genocide or something. I suspect lawyers will be warming up the outrage bus as I type.
I have just emailed my EE presales rep to tell him that carrying these is a prerequisite to me singing on the dotted line. I forgot the smilies.
I'm a big fan of the Z10 (I've had a demo one for a couple of weeks), but my personal phone is a Galaxy note and sub 5" screens don't cut it any more.
Today I'm taking great delight in telling BT that they're not getting our 55 mobile contract.
They're at the current whiny "I must admit I'm surprised" stage.. However the boss won't let me reply with "yes but you're shit, and you insist I use BT Local business, and they're the only organisation that are shitter than you."
Wait till i tell them they've lost the ISDN and landlines too.
In these days of wireless charging, NFC and A2DP etc, I'm wondering when we will see a handset that can survive a proper dunking.
The environmental protection doesn't seem much better than my old Defy (which is still going, after I fell overboard from an inflatable in Norfolk)
Mind you even if this was the case, it'd be a bit of a beast to hang round my neck underneath a lifejacket.
I've just spent a productive 20 minutes creating a dual boot Win 7 / Mint workstation.
It's been simply years since I tried Linux, and to be honest didn't have the patience to persevere. I have to say, i'm impressed with the improvements.
time to have a mooch round, while the boss isn't looking.
With all the wildlife that is simply waiting to rid the country of as many humans as it can, it never ceased to amaze me how they ran round screaming like a five year old, at the very sight of a "European Wasp"
It's always funny to watch an entire BBQ of surfers and rugby players run around screaming, because of one little wasp.
Very true, but my original Motorola Defy has survived a couple of dunkings.
The drowned Note, was solely due to me getting excited about getting onto the water, and forgetting to transfer the SIM into the Defy (Which I duely packed into a waterproof flare type box). I cried like a gurl.
Also as my boss like to remind me, I'm employed to be avaliable 24/7/365 so I can have a handset at the helm, and the odd bit of spray / rain doesn't bother it.
As I'm already rapidly going off topic. My fanboiism for life, to the first company that uses inductive charging and Stereo over Bluetooth to provide a proper smartphone (W8, Android, anything else) that can survive depths of 5 meters for an hour.
A very stupid name, but an IP57 rated handset with a 5" screen.....
I'd seriously like one of those as my boaty phone. The sinking feeling you get when you are standing up to your waist in seawater, and you remember which pocket your Galaxy Note is left in, is not one I want to repeat.
