Plead guilty, case closed.
Are people changing or is Justice doomed to evolve the opposite way of "civilization"?
Re: "the article does not say that an iPhone has ever stopped a bullet"
Dead guys were holding it wrong.
You fail !
There's a "Pedantic grammar nazi alert" icon for that sort of rant.
Please change the title
from "mobile" to "smart" phone. I got a proper mobile phone.
again and again... units !
Anyone reading the articles before publishing ?
You don't "consume 2.5 volts".
Re: Simple test:
Young children can focus as close as ~11cm, which is quite further than anyone's nose (that I know). Of course it goes downhill with age.
You have to be prepared for an upgrade to Windows 9 which will probably take ~170Gig for a clean install.
Re: How thin?!
I've tested chocolate beer. No thanks. I'm not expecting more of beer spreadable... Mixing everything is not always a good idea.
Re: Put my CV through but I have yet to hear.
Can you say "services company focused on empowering customers in the activities they value most" without laughing ?
Slightly biased article.
"meteoric rise and spectacular fall of Microsoft's Windows Operating System" ... what's the share of Windows today ?
I could lose my job simply...
Because El Reg keeps putting nudies on the main page. How old are you ?
Is it more natural to drink your water from a tap or from a bottle ?
Re: its an Acer - no surprise
"Unfortunately, the W3's overall build quality doesn't feel up to par with either of those devices. Clearly under price pressures, Acer has cut a few corners,.."
... no surprise indeed.
Re: These the same Korean Doctors who think that fans are lethal?
Has that study got a billion hits on Youtube?
Re: Something I've never understood
Laptops have become thinner with years, 2;5"HDDs have become thinner as well as parts of those thinner laptops. That's the point.
16 V2s remaining in the world, half a dozen of them in the US.
What a surprise. Von Braun probably had some in his suitcase or did he simply build them in the US?
They needed the technology against the commies, they welcomed the Nazi scientists and protected them for decades.
Re: Line orientation
It doesn't matter whether the ball touches the inside or outside of the line, as long as if it touches the line, it's good. That's the rules in tennis. And that mark is clearly on the line. That being said, you have to trust the umpire on the fact he'll make such errors in good faith and so on both sides.
Re: It's not only one study... it's old stuff.
Anybody at the Reg thinking or writing about "this accepted wisdom" should read the Reg.
reasonable, thoughtful, and moderate post
Here you have it: lets consider this article and leave it as it is; the most normal thing in the world.
Re: IRIS drivers
Update to the latest Cataract.
Girls want to date footballers (you know why, ... not because they are the new role models). Guys want to look like footballers. Footballers got wet hair cause they're interviewed after the match and after the shower... put gel in your hair so you look like a footballer. Footballers have Beats headphones... wear Beats headphones. Footballers give a show of constant cheating in sport... Cheat.
Insult, be a racist twat, ring a colleague cause you spotted a drunk teenager, or even better, take your colleague's wife, bite if you want, It's okay, just a bit of anger management will do for you, cause you're a footballer.
Re: What a lovely end to the perfect night.
You kick yourself for not having bought the car stereo version instead. That would have saved your night and spared a bottle of wine.
Re: On the plus side, SSD prices continue to fall
I can understand you get memory for double the price when added by the manufacturer, but a laptop "with an SSD" will cost you 350 more when the part itself is just worth 50 more! So people won't buy a laptop with an SSD because they don't want to feel scammed.
so you can't say it's been removed.
Parallel with the financial crisis ?
Is this not in a way similar with those (young) folks at Lehman Brother that found out you could sell any financial product and pass the risk to someone else ? How well did it go ? Who paid at the end? Aren't we insured for everything today anyway? Who pays for that when it goes ok? Who gets paid for that when it goes OK? Who pays for that when it all collapses?
Re: GB != Gb
So if time is still volume divided by speed, if a Blue Ray is still 25GB, if a byte is still 8 bits,
50Gb/s becomes 6.25 GB/s, right ? Or in a real world scenario, about 5 GB/second ? And 25GB / (5GB/s) is damned close to 5s. No ?
Re: GB != Gb
Would you please care to do the math for us to show how astronomically far you bring us from 5 seconds ? I'm curious.
concept of being paid for -good- work.
So how does this help the concept of artists needing/deserving to be paid/making a living, incentive to creation and all that stuff ? All we see is old and rich celebrities getting all the money, attention, bizz buzz for things they are not doing anymore (creating) since decades. Who's in the spotlight today ? Crap artists from today and old rockers from the eighties (you know, those filling the Mega Arena in your town in 2012 and 2013). Where are the good artists from today ? Why can't they make a decent living ? Because nobody cares? Because people are fighting for old folks to get richer? Is it easier than find and promote new artists? Probably.
Accurate title needed.
Providing energy "for 99.9% of the time" is not the same as providing "99.9% of the energy".
While we're at it, its not clear how we keep "CO2" power production ready to be used for 9hours a year (0,1%)... that is, not contiguous hours.
Re: ....."allow me to educate you"
about what the "Joke Alert" icon means ?
Re: re: messed up the economy
Search for Fool's Gold.
"HP may suggest returning the system to the original Windows 8 OS"
"May Suggest" ? Are you kidding ? That's all they're told to do and that's all they will do.
See this report from octobre.
You mean ... we just wasted 1 minutes of your time because you already knew that.
Re: the acrimony between Walloon and French in Belgium
You might want to study cultural tensions in that part of the world again. I live there.
We can't stop BYOD.
Read "The more stuff we sell you to support all that crap, the better".
Look at it an other way
Was the study funded by Microsoft-Dell-HP ?
How long till they "invent" a touch thingy that can be put on the desk, without need to lift your arm. They could name it something like "touch pad" or "track pad". It could even be cheaper to manufacture. Wait for Windows9.
Re: run basic image manipulation software
I remember the late nineties when we were told that video editing softwares needed at least a 350MHz processor. Something must have gone wrong with Moore's law (should be about x100 since then) or with Windows. I know everything has gone HD now but still. Today's low end is capable of "wordprocessing, email and web browsing". Amen.
Merging tissue with electronics
So no need for it to be "attached to their heads" anymore.
