Due to a combination of bitterness from buying the unplayable First Encounters and their most recent output being part of Star Wars Kinect I wouldn't give him anything to be part of this beta test.
Something I haven't seen through reporting of this is why Mat Honan was targeted, was it the Gizmodo / Wired connection or something more sinister directed at him?
They've managed a neat trick in calling me recently, CallerID shows up as a row of 0s. It has also enabled me to set a silent ringtone to the number so I don't hear them call either.
The Sun is perhaps the last place to ask about possible censorship of the web as it's part of Murdoch's empire which includes paywalls in places such as the Times. Dierdre must be about a million years old now.
They will have good mobile reception though, surely? I can watch HD TV on my phone & tablet over HSPA.
10 k will buy an awful lot of iPads running iPlayer, SkyPlayer and See-Saw or whatever the TV over Internet UK initiaitve became.
They'll just rename them and you won't realise that Windows Generations is actually Windows 10.
I would have though that anyone that is 45, making 150k and writing COBOL probably already developed most of the system they're working with and is in a pretty safe place until someone decides to drop SAP on top of everything.
I joined when I was about 17 out of curiosity; the people I met were mostly lacking any social skills, kind of awkward to be around and lacking any sense of humour. Usenet's rec.org.mensa had very similar people populating/trolling it so I got out of any association with them kind of sharpish.
They're the World's smartest idiots IMO.
