Their trouble is - despite the vast sums spaffed like the $8bn on Nokia Mobility....
It’s all a bit half arsed and lacking commitment.
What would have saved Window’s Phone (which to be fair was the the market leader in the WinCE/PocketPC on (Intel) StrongARM days with HTC, HP, Samsung etc phones and numerous PDA’s like Compaq/HP iPaq and Dell Axim)... before iPhone.
... was content.
- That vast chasm of Window’s Phone App Gap could have been bridged to self-sufficient ecosystem by MS simply paying the App Companies to port.. or doing it themselves until is was equivalent to IOS App Store or Google Play.
- the repeated fucking over of everyone on pre-Window’s 7 hardware, then the second fucking over of Windows Phone 7 hardware relatively quickly afterwards to leap to WP8. The Fucking over of Windows RT... again it failed due to the poor App Gap as almost exactly the same OS underneath as Windows Phone 8 and 10. An IPhone 4 still works on IOS7 and many apps Or older versions still compatible that far back. Fucking over of Zune - I mean it was a MP3 player FFS fighting IPod and the crud iTunes.
Same with Peugeot Ryton - derelict for years now a warehousing Park.
Same with JLR Brown’s Lane - a warehousing Park inc Amazon
Same for Alvis Retail Park - retail park inc B & Q, Morrison’s etc
Massey-Fergusson Banner Lane, now a housing estate development
Add Coventry to your shit-list of former vehicle hubs. Only JLR Head Office and London Taxi left.
You are not allowed to engage in revenue raising work.
- Sales puts stuff in the pipeline for the future, it does not generate revenue Immediately
- however If the work is an immediate start that does generate revenue, self-evidently you don’t need to be furloughed
It’s the same... Rich people (say Lewis Hamilton) and lawyered up corporations (Apple, Altaba, Thames Water etc) can avoid, dodge or ultimately barter/negotiate a deal on their affairs - avoiding prosecution.
Small people get hammered and fleeced for the full amount. I’d love to be able to offer HMRC 50p on the pound ‘deal’ against my self-assessment child benefit clawback dues.
Note Vodafone (and shareholders as was more complex) had a similar massive windfall from it’s disposal of a near half stake in Verizon. Was that any messier as appropriate context El Reg journo’s.
“ The framework provides "software (including open source software), essential hardware and associated services and support and maintenance for cloud based, on premise and hybrid software solutions."
Councils will be able to select software for accounting systems, commercial-off-the-shelf and non-proprietary stuff, as well as CRM, ERP, data analysis, business intelligence, database tools, and inventory systems.”
Why the fuck do you need an outsourced deal to buy off the shelf software, hardware and maintenance for cloud and on-prem...most councils have existing fairly hefty procurement teams.... and AWS/Google/Microsoft/Dell/HP/BT/Lenovo etc will do much of this within other Government Procurement agreements.
Seems like money for nothing. ... and precious money to councils in current circumstances.
But surely you make the device ecosystem the centre of your living room/bedroom so you can (Sony anyway) flog some Blu-Ray discs ??
A stand-alone Blu-Ray player is from £55 retail (inc tax) @ Argos... so a bare drive is probably about max £10 manufacture costs at scale.
Digital only editions a solution to a problem no-one asked about. It was only ever a thing with the PS3 launch and the massive cost the new Blu-ray tech added to the launch cost.
“I started in this industry back in about 1986 working on mainframe ADA compilers. I subsequently spent years working on IBM db2 hosted on UNIX super servers and then moved to Microsoft sequel server hosted on x86 processors.“
Microsoft ‘sequel’ server. Did you vSend your Polish cleaner to do this interview??
I tend to agree. Smacks of trawling for information to make a case for suspicion, as opposed to having enough evidence to make a case for the CPS.
Waste of Police/CPS time and resources.
I’m assuming every Joe in the street can also refuse PIN , as their ‘crimes against society’ will have no overlap into anything that can have Terrorism label slapped on and won’t be obstructing an investigation like that. Otherwise... “caught speeding Sir, can we have your phone PIN. You seem to fit the profile for car cruising”.

I can sell Window’s without threat from Microsoft.
I could sell Chicago Pizza’s - not Chicago Town - so no worries there.
Many companies have made up faux heritage - Frankie and Bennie’s for example or Reggae-Reggae Sauce infamously... both Trademarked.
“My youngsters are all up for wearing PPE but they are still the highest risk of catching it when they go back to school.”
“The highest risk of catching it”. seriously. Any compelling evidence for this?? ... bearing in mind youngsters suffer the least and will also be the least tested age demographic.
I think the long belly-ached about “low productivity out of the office/managing people remotely difficult ” corporate why you can’t work from home excuses have finally been hosed. Many people will work their 8 hours productively between7 and 10pm and get their shit down.
Office providers- and esp. people like WeWork - should be quaking one their boots. Who needs much more than a token head office now.
All you need is a home office setup - desk/table, mid-range laptop, decent (24” or greater second screen), headset, printer possibly and VOIP telephony/conferencing. The only slight fly in the ointment is broadband.
Automatic benefit too of saving the planet with reduced commuting/air travel and consequential CO2 and other emissions ... Greta will be ecstatic.
