I'd rather the phone display reflected the way it's held, rather than the state of the slider. The N95 was much improved when they changed that. This one looks like it's being held in portrait mode.
As for the month not wrapping or zooming, from what I've seen of 7, the phone display is a viewport on a larger display, which would mean that wrapping or shrinking that text to the screen would break the style of the display.
I can't say I'm particularly bothered by it. It's not like I wouldn't be able to see at a glance what the month is from that.
I'd still like an Android version though...
Jobcentre IT is nothing *but* a problem.
The last time I had to sign on, I registered on-line. Then made an appointment to go into the local jobcentre. Where my details had been printed out for the clerk to re-type them in to her computer, while asking me if each question over again.
Really inspired confidence in their ability to help me.
A tool for spotting people with ASBOS?
You haven't read Charles Stross's Halting State then?
Wonder if it hadn't, there'd be a story about the lack of interest?
I had a poke around there yesterday, but was somewhat surprised that the site couldn't calculate my age accurately from my date of birth.
Why I should pay £20?
So when I haven't downloaded anything illegal for a year, will the copyright holders refund my £20?
What about those who download more than £20 worth of illegal data? How do you get the extra from them?
He claims that Google is stealing his content by linking to his sites, then the Times steals Edgar Wright's tribute to Edward Woodward from his website and edits it to lose the affection and admiration the original had.
All without any contact with the original author.
To look at the Customer Pictures.
I preferred the Aussies' "Arse-antlers".
Hope they can continue.
The website is still running (Under News is ElReg's article about them selling the online business!) so maybe there is hope.
I bought my first PC from the New Oxford Street store, then an iPAQ 3630, a Fuji digital camera, an HP all-in-one printer (cheapest way to get a networked scanner!) and lots of odd bits and pieces like USB sticks and network cards.
The only kit I had a problem with was a PVR that was pretty rubbish. Morgan accepted it back without a problem.
One of the few websites that I like to just browse through every now and again, just to see what's available.
Google should pull every link to anything Murdoch owned.
See how they like the reduction in traffic / ad revenue.
Presumably if ElReg had one that they could prise open, then they would have described it themselves, rather than reporting "Toshiba says the product's design has a sleek high gloss finish with a vaporized metallic silver rim and LED activity light with white glow effects."
As with @Adrian Challinor and @Scott Mckenzie
When I registered with Be (before they upgraded my exchange) they estimated that I'd get 8Mb/s at my address, out of 24Mb/s. Since I was paying more at the time for .5Mb/s I was happy with that.
In fact I get nearer 10Mb/s. If they hadn't been up front, I wouldn't have gone with them.
Perhaps there should be a sliding scale of charges. The closer to the quoted speed you get, the more of the monthly charge you pay.
Is O2 able to distinguish between tethered internet access and access by the iPhone itself?
It's a little odd that they allow it for other brands of mobile, like the N95, but not an iPhone. It's one of the reasons that I picked the unlimited internet bolt-on.
The computer unit had a Gould mini-computer which was problematic at first. Whenever they brought it up, it went down. After a few repetitions, they called it Zebedee. The next one was slow, so that was Brian. Then came Dougal and Florence. The computer science department called theirs "csgould". No imagination!
When they were replaced with Sun boxen, the servers were given the names of mainline stations in London and the workstations named after the stations along the lines from those stations. I suspect the computer unit staff were train spotters...
Windows: Kiki (laptop), Zaza (PDA), Hector (Media PC).
Linux: Midge (netbook), Mungo (PC). When I set up a mail server, it'll probably be Pat. (Not Mary, I know too many Marys, who'd probably be annoyed with me!)
Not the best word to be using at the moment...
Classic boffin hair style there. :)
Do the Canadian police have a set of keys for Marlene Jennings's houses and cars?
If not, then why hasn't she given them a set? It's an essential tool to allow them to search her property without her knowledge.
Can't wait to see this
On Blue Peter. :)
I'm getting sick of facebook ads.
They give you an option to mark ads as irrelevant, offensive etc. Yet after marking an advert as offensive, it is invariably replaced with similar one from the same company.
Doesn't seem to make any difference at all.
Style over substance
But that extra illumination will make life easier for muggers.
Re: Make the roads safer for all
"...shut down their roadside ATM's and get the traffic cars back on the road."
Whereupon, having been stopped by a traffic car for speeding, he will ask "Why aren't you out catching criminals?"
Someone's been watching too many movies.
Everyone knows you have to put on a pair of red glasses before you can see the laser beams.
Or peer through a convenient glass of red wine, of course.
Don't know about the car, but the website seems to be parked...

I wish I had SuperVision.
Oh, it's amanfromMars. Must check the author before trying to undestand... :)
(Why won't the comment accept "24/7/365?" as a title? It comes back with "A title is required")
UK and Scotland?
Has Scotland seceded from the union now?
Half a million complaints?
Are they sure that all of those half a million people were complaining about Janet's breast?
I'm sure a good proportion of complaints about "seeing a tit on the TV" would've been referring to Justin Timberlake.
My first job...
...I used WfW3.11 on a 386SX, running at 25MHz with 1MB of RAM.
Saving and backing up at the end of the day took me about two and a half hours. Until my boss found me with my feet up on the desk, reading a book.
A memory upgrade arrived the next day. :)
