BT Should Stick to Telecoms, not Email Provision.

Over the past few months we’ve seen a number of ‘compromised’ BT Yahoo! email accounts. In this situation, the customers email account has been breached or hacked and has been used either to send out Spam email, or the contents have been deleted or lifted or otherwise used in an illegitimate way.

Happy Windows 8 Day!

Yes, today is the official release date of Windows 8 and the Microsoft Surface tablet PC.
