I've now had W10 on my primary laptop for 24 hours, I don't think the start menu is that different to W7.

Doubt that many corporates will be rushing to W10, they tend to work at a glacial pace. ...

8.x is faster on similar spec hardware. If you install one of the classic start buttons, it just works like a faster version of windows 7. Which is definitely a fact.

Isn't the 6+ one of the best selling phones in the last 6 months? Which tends to imply that it is popular and relatively "common".

Indeed, and its likely the lack of a license code that would make it impractical to fully "go back" to Windows 7.

For the price the original Hudl was brilliant. They're generally about as fast as my 2012N7, but were a fair bit cheaper. Higher resolution screen and SD storage.

So no, they weren't slow and...

I think you're confusing "needs" with "wants" - no way does an autistic child "need" an iPhone or tablet.

Yet despite that, battery life has generally not improved (unless you're at the the high end) and in the case of the ULV processors they're generally not that fast. That isn't progress.

Vodafone have been offering Sky Sports and Sky Movies packages for a while. Whilst I don't think one will buy the other, the chances of a closer offering of services seems probable.

I happen to work at one of the telcos .... previously we had a choice of devices, going forward iOS is only for management, Android for the workers. There's something subtle in that decision.
