All i will say in advance is poor bloke some of the questions he is going to have to deal with will range from the intelligent and tricky right down to the outright dumb. Lets hope the bloke doesnt speak in what i term marketting twaddle see people finally understand its just ad advert service to make money.

or, as per anyone else who does PR online chat, he'll only answer carefully selected and, dare i say it, fielded questions...that might even appear to be worded as if cut and pasted from a script....

Windows Vista refuses to load thier Chat tool as it coming from an unsigned source. When an operating system won't even risk loading thier chat tool it can't be a great sign.

MAC Codes from BT graphed up should look like an arial. This is ridiculous expecting this out-ethics dupe to say anything other than his well scripted response.
At the end of the day the real question should be what business does BT have allowing an outside company access to their users Internet traffic, whatever the reason. If the Police or security services want access to that they at least need a warrant(well not always). Phorm gets access for er "marketing purposes"?
DO ME A FAVOUR GOV!

Eurobear - no, that says a lot about Vista, actually.

"as it coming from an unsigned source" - as does most software and drivers.

Yea agree with both the above comments, thats a vista issue, some are saying vista is the worst OS Microsoft have ever produced... In terms of compatibilty with hardware out there it is shocking.

Is this the case if you turn of UAC?

I've had Vista for nearly a year now and never seen any 'unsigned' programs refuse to load.

Managed to get the tool to load by turning off an internet Explorer Security settign but then it still refused to run successfully. I'm assuming the Chat Forum used was quite busy...
