Virgin Media spanked by ad watchdog over 'in your neighbourhood' fibs


Moved houses recently and Virgin offered us a bandwidth increase to ensure we continued with them. They kept saying all was well and arranged for a time/date to set it up. One day before, a virgin van came along, checked our premises and then we got a call - no connection possible as they'd have to lay a 15m cable to connect our house. This after we were assured that we would be connected - and I work from home, so this was probably as close to a disaster as it could get. Went for an ADSL with Plusnet (which for some reason Virgin didnt even offer).

Yup, received a flyer yesterday saying - VM is in the neighbourhood!

Dell axes IT channel middlemen, installs Windows in the factory


I thought the channel increased reach?

The channel developed so OEMs could manufacture and ship out to a large number of little customers without having to invest and manage in developing a large sales team?

Is Dell only focusing on the enterprise kind here then?

Google extends trademarks-in-ads policy to whole world


Re: How does this affect people with adblock installed?

This refers to the 'paid ads' that appear in google search results in the top and the right - since these are plain text, they should not be affected by your adblock.

What I'm keen to know is can one use trademarks? (I know one 'shouldnt' but can one?)
