Google BBC News reports: Google has begun to phase out support for Internet Explorer 6, the browser identified as the weak link in a "sophisticated and targeted" cyber attack on the search engine. The firm said from 1 March some of its services, such as Google Docs, would not work "properly" with the browser. It recommended individuals and firms upgrade "as soon as possible".

Seconded; Windows Update over dial-up is absolutely horrid. When I visit my in-laws I have to get them to stay off the phone for at least a day while Windows Update chatters back and forth.

A 200MB (or whatever) patch isn't bad on broadband, but on dial-up it's absolutely ridiculous.

Insert rant about telecomms companies taking government $$$ to expand broadband networks and then not bothering to actually do the work...
