LAST EVER British typewriter manufactured in Wales

Made in Wales?

What's the betting that it will only be sold to someone who is Welsh...

Ballmer: Windows Phone 8 'WILL ramp quickly', god dammit

Marketing win, delivering fail.

Waited 2+ month from iphone 5 launch to get a Nokia 920 and a move to WP8 and now EE only. I even contemplated moving to EE to the point I walked into the local store, only to be told by EE and the Nokia rep standing there that they don't know when they will be available around 1-2 weeks and Nokia themselves are not bothering to display demo (working) handsets in store... Massive build up to basically a fail for all customers excited to get hold of one!

Also EE charging £41 to start with 500mb of data, Three would of made a killing for MS and Nokia with their pricing.

SHAME! Now iPhone 5 or Andriod or upgrade to the iPhone 5 and sell it for an unlocked Nokia 920 which I haven't used? Sad choices

Barclaycard site falls over, web payments impossible

Re: More 'cloud' fun

What has the cloud to do with BarclayCard? This is a technical failure at DNS level, this could affect any website and so on. If BarclayCard were a cloud offering business fair enough.

Comment is pointless.

Chinese to burn iPads in upcoming celebrations

iPads for ex-Foxconn workers in the afterlife...

Burning paper iPads hmmm...

Surely some of the dead used to work at Foxconn, doubt they would want an iPad or iPhone in the afterlife...


Win 8 haters are just scared of change, say MS bosses

Deja vu...

Don't worry, you'll get over it just like the rest of the population will, because your just you and you are no one.

Developers more 'satisfied' with PHP than other codes

Travis Hayler

.NET Anyone?

Apparently your study doesnt include anything to do with .NET. Where is C#? VB.NET? Any of the ensemble languages available to that platform appear to have been missed, I think you've skewed this "study" in favour of PHP.

Epic fail.
