Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Net users in Northern Ireland were outraged last week after discovering that an offer to buy a Fujitsu PC and receive toll-free weekend access to the Net via BTInternet was not available outside mainland Britain. They were so incensed that the offer didn't extend to Northern Ireland they were prepared to close their BTInternet accounts in protest. "A couple of friends of mine tried for this offer and BT accepted the details," said one aggrieved Register reader. "BT then phoned back to say that it was only available to UK mainland users -- this is not on to say the least," he said. However The Register can confirm that as of Friday afternoon the offer now applies to Northern Ireland. A spokesman for BTInternet said there was a delay in appointing contractors to carry out the installation and home tutoring which comes as standard with the offer. ®
