Why the iPhone's megapixelage alone won't matter

Carl

SE C905

I have a SE C905 and the pictures are better than an old 5megapixel standalone cam that I own. The Xenon flash can really make the difference!

UK.gov 'to create anti-net piracy agency'

iPlayer etc

Services such as BBC iPlayer use P2P protocols.....does this mean people watching Top Gear on iPlayer can expect letters from ISPS over use of P2P applications?

AVG tags ZoneAlarm as Trojan

Carl

Title?

"Or, with Firefox 3, NoScript, FlashBlock, AdBlock Plus and Windows Update, you're pretty safe anyway without a full time AV."

Unless you d/l a file, any file from the net.

What happened when I consumed 2.5 litres of wine and a few pints along the way.

Not telling colleagues your wages....

My employer doesn't like us doing that either. Same goes for bonus payments. But we still do it. *shrugs*

Vista sets 2007 land-speed record for copying and deleting

Carl
Gates Halo

Satisfied Vista User

Lets see, HP Pavilion machine with 2gb of ram and 256mb of graphics memory......oh and a 3.2ghz processor.

Not a wildly over-specced machine but Vista runs fine with no complaints.

I've used Win95, 98SE, ME, XP, XPSP1, XPSP2 & Vista Home Premium, and the only one I have a serious complaint about and would refuse to ever use again is ME.

RE: Where?

Never been to America but I know where Maryland is. Maybe you're guilty of not knowing enough about the world in which you live? I don't know every town or city in every country, but enough to know that Maryland is a state in the USA. Just like DC or Florida.

Microsoft shouts 'Long Live XP'

Carl

I like Vista!

I've used DOS, Win3.1, Win95, Win98SE, WinME, WinXP, WinNT & Vista.

The worst is ME, no doubt about it.

At present though I have a laptop running XP Home and a desktop running Vista Home Premium.

No problems at all with Vista, runs smoothly, is quick and the biggest hurdle was having to manually download drivers for the graphics card I had fitted. Hardly a chore.

I brought a new PC from PC World (needed one quick or would've had one built at local PC shop) for £499.

That's an Intel Celereon D 3.46Ghz with 120GB HDD & 1GB of RAM.

Only mods I made was to go straight from PC World to local PC store and ask to them add another 1GB of RAM and add a 256MB graphics card.

Cost me about £60.

I'm currently running Vista, AVG, ZoneAlarm, iTunes, MSN Msngr, Vista SIdebar with 3 gadgets and the WIndows task maanger.

Processes: 74

CPU Usage: Jumping between 8% & 20%

Physical Memory: 47%

And iTunes is loading the music from an external HDD plugged into my router via Ethernet.

Is Vista really that bad?
