> What information can a mouse retain?
Well, since you ask, if it is a USB mouse, anything you like. You fit a USB hub and a memory stick in the case. Mouse still works, but it's a storage device as well.
"This change to our product is not directly customer impacting, and the fees involved in this service are equal to those charged by the registry concerned for the same service."
I'll be paying that to Nominet instead then, so 123 won't get a penny as I shift all the domains I look after away from their "service".
We don't need to fine council's and such huge amounts of money. They don't care - it isn't theirs. No - what we need is to fine the *people* responsible (operators, CEO's etc) much *smaller* amounts of money, so they actually feel it personally. Mind you, trying to find out who *is* responsible in a council is nigh on impossible these days....

Which will make you totally look like a techno-nerd (to ordinary folks, anyway).
So that's really going to help, yes?
There used to be some really good information on the Business Link site.
Business Link has now been subsumed.
If I try to use the so-called navigation, I can't see where this information (eg An example of the terms and conditions of your website which covers the content and usage of your website.) has gone.
If I search for text that was on the page "An example of the terms and conditions of your website which covers the content and usage of your website." I can't find anything remotely related.
"Market-Tested VoIP Technologies
Whether you are looking at Hosted PBX or SIP Trunking service, chances are your business will need some VoIP products to run the service at peak performance. Choose from the following technologies:
IP phones are used with hosted PBX service to provide feature rich desk phones
Wireless IP phones provide total flexibility and are used with our Hosted PBX service
VoIP gateways are adapters used to connect non-IP devices such as fax, credit card, or modem devices to a VoIP phone line. They are also used to connect existing non-IP PBX phone systems to SIP trunking VoIP service.
iCloud customers benefit from full configuration and support on these products with our hosted PBX or SIP trunking services."
errrr.... and the 'cloud' element of this is what exactly? Far more likely that they'll get a bunch of hits they wouldn't have had.
"...we know that we will go into that future with our *brand*, purpose and operating model intact."
WTF has a "brand" got to do with it? You're not selling soap. Reality detachment getting worse by any chance? You keep concentrating to "purpose" before you forget what it is. Or means.

Actually it does this already. Although not automatically, it's true
and not with unlimited storage.

So what they're *actually* saying is you can:
A) Use the iTunes infrastructure and pay 30% for the privilege
- OR -
B) Build your own payment/security/etc infrastructure and keep 100% yourself
I fail to see what the problem is with this - you can have it either way.
Your article seems to suggest that *only* A) is available.
...as always, thank you!
However, as any designer worth his salt will attest, the reason we don't like Comic Sans is that to our eyes, it does (for a whole catalogue of reasons I won't bore you with) look f**k ugly. If anyone reading this disagrees, that's OK. Carry on using it by all means.
But as an example everyone might warm to, it has a visual effect on some of us similar to the one people get just before they ask the question "you call THAT music"?
Re: Daylight savings change and alarm issue
Posted: Nov 2, 2010 4:57 AM in response to: efcop
I just changed the date to November 8th i.e. after the US changes the time and presto it works. So it seems that although the phone's time changes correctly the alarm time seems to be linked to the US DST
I just tried doing this (I'm in the UK) and it works for me too. Looks like your analysis is correct.
So it looks like they did ALL their testing using the US daylight saving time zone and (hopefully) these problems will go away on the 8th. Except for those of us who have worked around this by setting our alarms back an hour!
