Ihaven’t written anything on Jammy Toast for a little while. No, let me re-phrase that. I have not had anything posted on Jammy Toast for a little while because I keep getting rejection letters from Sir Davidd. So I thought I would have one last try to write something relevant for inclusion on Jammy Toast and try and piss Sir Davidd off at the same time. I have known Davidd now for some years and during that time we have had many long hard conversations about computers and most things IT related. I used to work for Microsoft so it was easy to fit in with Davidd’s Windows/PC outlook on life. I used to think everything made by Apple was crap and that was the end of it.
Tonight we bring you a brand new Saturday Night at The Movies here at Jammy Toast. Each week we show a movie through the Jammy Toast Cinema for all our friends. There is no longer a password required for the cinema so the films are now available to anyone who wishes to watch. If you highlight the Media menu above, then the Videos submenu and finally click on Bear Cinema you will gain entry to the Bear’s Cinema where you can view this week’s Movie of the Week. Please note; we have no control over how long this film will remain available before it is withdrawn, so please watch it as quickly as possible – it may no longer be available tomorrow.
Hello everyone and welcome to my monthly technology column. There has not really been one big story this month that I am going to focus on, so instead I thought I would have a roundup of all things technical. Some funny and some not quite so funny. For example, we have heard before about the problems Apple have had with their mapping software on many of their phones. They have been on the receiving end of many jokes about people being sent the wrong way but now things have turned a little more serious after the latest “quirk” in the software. Now their software is instructing unwitting drivers to drive their car across an airport’s runway – straight in front of planes landing and taking off!
Hello everyone and welcome to my monthly technology column. With February being such a short month, and lots of other things going on too, we didn’t have time for my column last month. With that in mind, I have put my foot down and insisted I go first this month so that I don’t get left out again. First thing I want to do today is wish Davidd a Happy Saint Davidd’s Day even though he does get big headed thinking he’s a Saint and having a day named after him.
As we get to the end of 2012 we thought it was worth taking a look back at some of the highlights and lowlights of the year. We will keep some great memories of the past year not least being the London hosting of the Olympic Games which were such a huge success. Like every year there will be some sad memories we will also have to keep. 2012 will be the year we remember the deaths of people like Neil Armstrong and Eric Sykes.
Hello everyone and welcome to my monthly technology column. A couple of years ago everything was happy in the land of online video – Flash ruled the waves. Flash video would play on just about every device out there so running a website that contained videos was easy. You just converted all your videos to Flash and everyone could watch them through your website. Nearly every computer had the Adobe Flash Player installed. Then Apple decided they were not going to allow flash onto their mobile devices and everything was thrown up into the disarray.
We launched our new Jammy Toast site when some of the features where not completed. We didn’t want to keep all our friends waiting any longer than need be so many of the features around Jammy Toast had a label warning that the page was still under construction. Today, we are pleased to announce that all the construction work is finished, the builders have packed up all their tools and Jammy Toast is now complete.
From time to time the bears bestow an award on somebody who they regard as a hero. This award is not given lightly and there have to date only been twelve recipients. These heroes do not have to be famous or in the limelight, just someone the bears hold in the highest regard as a role model. Today, on the 100th anniversary of his birth, we would like to honour Alan Turing by naming him as an official Hero Of The Bears.
European law has extended warranties in this country on electrical goods from the normal one year to the more friendly two years. This means that companies who have had to replace or repair goods without complaining within the first year now have to grin and bear [sic] the same situation for double that time. Unless of course your name is Apple.
