Vodafone will launch the 4G with release iPhone5

"Apple’s iPhone 5, the current model, is only compatible with EE’s 4G network", er, no, that's not correct. The iPhone5 will work on any providers 3G network as well, you can have the 4G CAPABLE iPhone5 on a 3G contract from Vodafone!

What the author meant to say, was that the only way to utilize the 4G connectivity of the iPhone5, is to get a 4G contract with  EE, as they are currently the only 4G provider.

I have no idea why Vodafone would delay the launch of 4G when they offer various 4G capable phones already, I can only presume they are in technical difficulties with their deployment, and think this cover story will fool people, and buy them time.

I take that as "we were worried about EE having a competitive advantage but our data says they haven’t made much of it and so we can afford to milk what we have and launch at a better time with a better "launch" product.

Sorry EE but it looks like you really have ruined your "number 1" spot and excellent "Orange" brand from the 90s, when the future was very much a bright one, not a murky color scheme that the muddle of website EE operates upon as its shop front.

Wise Words

"When we finally presented it at the shareholders' meeting, everyone in the auditorium stood up and gave it a five-minute ovation. What was incredible to me was that I could see the Mac team in the first few rows. It was as though none of us could believe that we'd actually finished it. Everyone started crying."

My worry about losing the Queen

My worry about losing the Queen would be that she would still be entitled to take money from the Crown Estates. I hope when negotiations are taking place after the referendum, that the SNP would not go soft on this and on a number of other matters, like being over generous with the entitlement...

How to get indoor an orchids to grow and bloom?

The thing which, apart from Climate Gate, really knocked them sideways was that bitterly cold December 2013.

Louise wouldn't remember it because she was with Chris Huhne in Cancun at the time and kept telling us how warm it was poolside — while it was –15ºC here and...
