In Other News – 22 January 2015

So who else caught Microsoft’s Windows 10 Conference last night? I must say, they impressed me quite a bit. I mean we get Windows 10 for free, Xbox One gets some handy streaming and my dream of playing with lego holograms is finally a reality. And before you ask, yes it was a dream – every single time I stepped on one of those blocks as a kid I wished for a better world.

In Other News: Bloodbourne PS4 is disappointing, Rovio ditches Angry Birds for adult novels and now we can blow cash on custom Amiibo.

Here’s the news we didn’t post today, because we were too busy wondering if our eyes were actually real.

        DSTV lost the plot a long time ago anyways. Too many useless channels that we pay for. They could have made a pick your channel bouquet but then they’d lose money.

          Yeah agreed. The other night I ended up watching Police Academy 5 or something (I missed first 20 mins) and thought “2 millions channels and nothing to watch”.

          And before you ask I was knackered and didn’t feel like playing except vegging.

In the first 5 minutes you think, ok this is better than that old one… 10 minutes later and you want to start scratching at things that aren’t itchy… another 10 minutes and you will just rage quit like I am doing now!! Second time this year that I tried to call and waited longer than 20 minutes… Last year their service was excellent and we are back to useless!! Should have known!!

      This is called a “complete ADSL installation” according to one of their “trained technicians”. They already tried to illicit a response from me about their service via SMS and survey call after I forwarded this to the project manager on site. His response was… “We can’t pick up that you ordered an ADSL line so could you forward me your reference number.”
      So, if I never ordered anything, why did the damn technician rock up in the first place and this is a professional installation according to them… just WOW
