Let me be the first to say...
...that I, for one, welcome our next generation iPhone overlords.
Combat racing game
I think Rage by id Software might make it out one day - that should be a half-decent combat racer with some FPS thrown in.
Can't we just leave Twitter to the BBC Technology News brigade?
The website itself, email newsletters and an RSS feed already do the job very nicely :)
I hope he's involved.
Interesting, we're getting there but I'll pass until a HD replacement (including a HDD) for the 5800PVR is announced.
I have to say though, I'm a big fan of Topfield kit. For those so inclined the functionality and interface mods available are second to none.
So are Nokia trying to bring the virtues of some of the E Series models to the masses? I can't help but think that it looks a little cheap compared to an E71/E72.
Reminds me of something, ahh yes the Nokia E71 in my pocket.
Nothing to see here, move along...
*Shudder* at the brand.
Crayfish sandwiches... that's another keyboard and monitor covered with coffee. Well done :)
This is exactly what I'm noticing; especially with eBay UK and Google...
A good read
I thoroughly enjoyed that.
Err, there's nothing foolish about using an aux tuner to supply your screen with an image. In fact it has some benefits depending on your requirements.
Surprised by the Denon, shame on them for the load times, especially at that RRP. In terms of the physical design it wins hands-down in my book though.
Paint Shop Pro
I still have Paint Shop Pro v6.01 running on Win 7. Pre-Corel it was a great lightweight alternative to Photoshop.
If this response is genuine...
...and regardless of the legalities of the case then I despair for Mr Job's displaying such poor attitude.
I remember when Pearl Jam...
...tried and failed to take on the might of Ticketmaster in the mid-90's. It's a sad state of affairs.
Oh well, at least they've learned an additional lesson on accepted formats and proprietary standards.
I'll stick to a good old VGA from the TV to a laptop. Why limit yourself to YouTube? You can watch the whole Interwebs!
Yeah, those boats they use require marine diesel. They should swim instead. Then sink.
Scum. That is all.
A £1000 for a 2.1 stereo with upscaling DVD player that pretends to be a home cinema? A fool and his money...
Amazon had them for under £80 recently, I've just checked though and they've gone back up :(
No Harmony One?
With a recent price cut (by some retailers) to roughly £79.99 the Harmony One might have made a worthy inclusion.
Any shop that mobs me as I walk through the doorway loses my custom no matter what they're hawking. They just don't understand the difference between informed advice (welcome) and the blind hard sell (unwelcome).
They're second in line to my throne of Consumer Hate only to DSG :)
I'd rather watch an empty space than endure ITV's current output. Without ads of course.
In this context...
...I'm sure it was Marcus. It's a good old chuckle-inducing term 'aint it? :)
This is just another step in the direction of re-alligning the business to be more like a traditional online retailer rather than an auction house.
Recent pricing structure changes make it almost certainly loss-making to list some items in certain categories, and the new search tool is just horrendous to use; pop-ups to select/deselect options that were previously available on the main results is at best frustrating and at worst infuriating.
My selling days are over, but for some categories (for instance vintage musical instruments) eBay is still a fine resource of inventory of often difficult to find items.
Sadly, I don't think it will be long before auctions are abandoned entirely in favour of fixed prices.
As in true rap tradition doesn't he spell his name Timbaland as opposed to Timberland? To be down with the kidz and all that...
That's a shame. They were one of the few high street retailers that could match online outfits, especially for console bundles, on price and choice.
The tech-savvy realise that the only thing they're good for is eye-balling gear before going home and ordering online. Why anyone wants to pay £100ish over the odds for any large electrical item is beyond me. And don't even mention the patronising tone of their advertisments and sales staff.
Well, those scientists have sure toad us straight.
I'll get my coat...
Perhaps Google will order a few as a GDrive storage solution.
Paying for ads?
The notion of paying to watch media that includes ads is absurd. Add this to region encoding, non-skip trailers, and the insistence of anti-piracy warnings on paid-for discs and the format will be dead within months!
I don't think even Chuck Norris could have survived this.
Self amputation is one thing, but self amputation with a pocket knife whilst being eaten alive by an ablaze piece of industrial machinery is the stuff of legend.
