And yet most head to heads I've read seem to favour the HTC One over the S4.
I for one am safe regardless
We're over 100m above sea level in St Albans. All I need now is a boat, and some form of defence from the misplaced hoards...

Verfied by Visa? I have to punch in 3 digits from my 8 digit password to confirm a lot of online purchases.
Twat is the word I've seen linked to him more than most on twitter today. Strangely apt.
With under half an hour of effort, you can install CM10 on a micro SD card and boot to that. Want to go back to the stock OS? Just take the micro SD card out. Battery life isn't brilliant with CM10 but it does make the Nook HD+ VERY flexible IMHO.
You'd think supplying the APU for the PS4 and the next Xbox would be a bit of a cash generator wouldn't you?
I'm confused. Both of these minority shareholders are advocating BORROWING money to pay out as dividend? Aside from that been a bit bonkers (and assuming Dell has the distributable profits to do it), what sane lender is going to pony up several billion dollars to just see the cash immediately vanish out of the company? It's hard enough getting a mortgage with a property as collateral at the moment. Yes, Dell probably has lots of unencumbered assets on it's books but given the way PC reselling is going at the moment, it'll probably need them.
Where can I get one of these for around £75 then? Best I've found is £89 :)
Surely we don't want the world wide web to devolve into apps is a better statement? The internet presumably includes apps as it is?

Two options that occur to me:
1) burn it with fire
2) nuke it from orbit (it's the only way to be sure)
I was waiting most of this year for the Atrix to get updated to ICS. The release date kept on slipping until quietly, at the end of September, Motorola announced it would stay on Gingerbread. Motorola are now infamous for poor updates on existing phones, something which is going to be a real problem for Android going forwards as new flagship models are now launched less than a year apart, as are new versions of Android, when most people have 18-24 month contracts on phones that the manufacturer doesn't update as it's not in their interests to. Even on a SIM only deal, I don't want to upgrade every 6 months to get a modern version of Android :/
Re: Nothing's obviously wrong with this
It's the artificial nature of it though- the stock that Lux "owns" never makes it's way to Lux, it's held and despatched from huge UK warehouses. Lux employs 500 people, the UK employs 15,000 people.
Whatever you do, don't google the woman's name. Think I'd rather be bludgeoned to death that suffocated in there :/
Organisations like OXFAM are now getting involved, this article http://policy-practice.oxfam.org.uk/blog/2012/11/who-is-really-paying-the-price-of-the-downturn shows how they are linked tax avoidance/evasion with poverty in this country. Bigger issue than many realise IMHO
Does the touch screen make it top heavy at all?
Deloitte prepared the bundle for KPMG to do due diligence on? My, there's going to be some fun to be had in those offices :/
Didn't realise she did Penetrator, I used to LOVE that game :D
Steve Cooks blog, secret-oranges.blogspot.co.uk is well worth a subscribe. He was at the heart of 2000AD when it mattered and is always scanning cool stuff in from waaaaay back.
Re: Geez what is it
Yes, that went well with the Raspberry Pi didn't it?
LG kit is normally very well made.
Sorry, your, not you're. :(
It was a joke. Ten minutes late to launch,followed by half an hour of timing out, lock ups, one almost complete payment process, and it now looks like no Nexus 4 for me today or in the foreseeable future. And to add insult to injury, I've just got my email from Google notifying me it's available for sale :/
I'm not a fan of this sort of tax avoidance but it's only part of the picture and it leads me to suspect some element of political show boating from PAC.
If you look at the HMRC Calculating the tax gap briefing from October, you'll see that HMRC reckon some £32bn in tax income went walkabout during 2010-2011 via avoidance or evasion. It further says half of this, £16bn, was due to SME's (small and medium sized entities- you're normal, non-multinational giants). Why not go after them with the same sort of publicity?
Oh that's right, Reuters didn't do a report on them.
Sorting out the taxation of these multinationals is going to be a legislative nightmare that is going to take years to get right. Whilst this is a step in the right direction, I fear that the gov won't see it through to the bitter end.
FPS- missing the point
Is something runs at 200fps that's good because when things gets very busy onscreen, it'll drop. If it drops 75%, that's still 50fps- try waiting for the screen to get busy when you're only managing 50fps to start with... it'll turn into a slide show!
Currently they can price gouge because there is no competitor. At launch EE also has capacity issues, which means the sell it cheap, get a huge installed userbase option isn't open to them either. It's a lose/lose in my book, I'll stick with my £13 a month SIM only deal on Three that gets me unlimited data and tethering.
Me, I wish they'd all stuck with 3G until universal coverage got sorted :/
The first to vote? It's currently a landslide for Connery :D
Re: With an SD card you're gimped by the FAT32 file system aren't you?
That's the real issue isn't it? I looked extensively for a tablet (unrooted and then rooted) that could read SD cards in anything other than FAT32. Spent ages trawling the xdadev forums. Came up with zilch.
Massive problem imho.
Looks like the rumours of a $199 launch price were woefully inaccurate then. Can see this dying on it's arse. Android- a lot cheaper, iPad, the same price.
Name me anyone who's competed with Apple on features with tablets, not price, and has won?
The thing I remember about Half Life is the AI/scripted pretend AI. Right near the beginning when a squad of soldiers move up on you through an area of storage containers, they give covering fire as they advance on you. How unbelievably cool is/was that? I was blown away, literally and metaphorically :D
No Avast! on the home test? Shame.
Further to "the same people who see an item online for £50 instead of the usual £500, order it...", they'll actually order 5 and start crowing publically that they're going to make a killing on ebay.
I hope the terms and conditions of the promotion say one per customer for completing the survey. Would love to see all the games downloaded invalidated. Gaming is having a tough enough time financially as it is, without bona fide customers exploiting cock ups.
Re: £15 - 25
Populous: The Beginning was one of those games that couldn't run with all the bells and whistles on full when it came out IIRC. They guestimated the oompf required to run it maxed out would be available by release and got it a bit wrong

I've got a Motorola Atrix, which is built like a tank. I looked at the S2 at the time, and in most ways it was a better phone but it felt cheap and nasty compared to the atrix IMHO
