Re: Dear Rupert
+1 For the removal of political bias from the rags!
The only problem is that when most people search on [engine] they are only searching for their points of view and the results they get will only reinforce that - esp with the personalisation of search results that we get now...
Re: Nice, but ...
As an Android owner, I have to say I like this feature!
It should be used for connected WIFI points also - no reason it cant remember which MAC was used for each, and reuse that one whenever it reconnects (probably - I can't say I know the WIFI protocol at that level...)
Re: Have been using this feature in Google Now
Now also works with all journeys too - quite useful when you have a meeting somewhere at a given time, Now will notify you that you should be leaving now to get there on time :-)
Little bit odd they had to give back their Brucies, you would have thought a bonus is paid for performance, so they shouldn't have got any in the first place - rather than as an expected part of pay?
Isn't that just an Android Intent?
+9000 (or I would if I could!)
Re: I wan't Oricle to win
"Google could have implemented Dalvik under the GPL but they chose not to."
I think Dalvik is open source (Apache License, Version 2.0)... https://github.com/android/platform_dalvik
Re: "Is there anything the wonder material can't do?"
Hopefully not for too much longer...
"receive the sounds they are going to play by a proprietary Sonos Wi-Fi network"
This may be a start, but the first thing that needs to happen is a standard so that all the gear can interoperate!
http://xkcd.com/927/ - standard XKCD reference for my own post!
I think MS was being singled out for being behind the curve for the fact that they are only now just modding their mobile OS for tablet (or phablet) use?
If 4g was ubiquitous and this had at least 1080p resolution, then this would work!
that is all.
Sounds kindda like http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/435742530/udoo-android-linux-arduino-in-a-tiny-single-board
I think this ARM version will be much more powerful!
Re: Now I'm running scared
No mention of Google here - I doubt the apps came from the Play store: "Kagawa and his associates are accused of using a wide variety of applications to spread the Android malware, Enesoluty, across third-party Android apps forums via 150 hosted domains."
Re: Typical government wonkery expecting ideas to drop in their laps for a fistful of dodgy notes.
err... did amanfrommars actually just make sense? And also get sarcasm!
Re: It’s called capitalism. We are proudly capitalistic. I’m not confused about this
You can't mix the two up, they are the same - laws are there to protect our moral standards!
As a society we think it is immoral to steal/hurt other people - that is why we have laws to protect us (from the immoral people).
If someone is following the law, but we think they are still being immoral that means that the law need to change to reflect our standards.
Re: Hurry up Valve..!!!!
I'm with the removal of all imperial!
Plus you can then report "Baumgartner jumped from an altitude of 29,455m (3195.032 ddb)" to start the transition from SI to Reg standards.
Re: 3% VAT
VAT is what consumers pay - not businesses. As a consumer in the UK we have to pay 20%. The businesses job is to pass this 20% on to the government where bought, so in this case Amazon will be giving that 20% direct to our government. This has nothing to do with Luxembourg.
The VAT on ebooks and not on books issue is annoying though.
Re: Will it have?
It does sound good, but as well as the points above it will also need to have a decent dev toolchain, all of their current and previous efforts have been awful!
Re: Hmm. Coincidence?
Awesome. I suppose then Google could buy Skyhook and have the pre-validated patent too!
Re: atheist 'sense'
You are tying to get us to understand from your point of view, which is a good thing - if more people tried to understand others viewpoints we would probably all be better off.
However the first thing you do is attack a group in exactly the same manner as others - "They do not appear to realise that atheism gives one no way to determine either". How is that any different from someone outside of Islam from insulting Muhammad?
Just because an atheist doesn't have a religion to tell them what is right or wrong, doesn't mean they do not know. Not everyone has to be told these things!
from a fellow biker...
Also the upgrade from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich is much bigger than the upgrade from ICS to Jelly Bean...
I think someone may be getting a little confused...
Fracking isn't about geothermal energy, at least not in the minds of the greenies - it is about shale gas (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydraulic_fracturing)
Re: Why can't you use your package manager?
"Ninite may become redundant in future" - that will also depend on how locked down Microsoft's store will be...
my only reason for running windows will soon be gone!
Could you re-do those graphs with an Intel chip that costs a similar amount and another that has a similar TDP?
The processor is a tegra 3 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tegra#Tegra_3_.28Kal-El.29_series it has a quad core A9 processor plus another 500MHz low power core...
Can a thief not now steal a Bike, scan the code, then find out where the owner lives and as they are not at home go and rob the place?
HL2 EP3 / HL3.
Unfortunately this has been my most anticipated game for the past 5-odd years!
and the extra 8GB will be used by the drive for wear leveling...
Re: Server-Side Copy
Like the iPhone on the image...
"The Orwellian-sounding National Office Against Pornographic and Illegal Publications " - surely if this was 1984 that would be the National Office for Sexual Liberation?
Coat is already on...
Apathy... sorry can't be bothered to finish this comment.
also small, so it can be hidden
+1 for the local streaming, if this also supported OnLive then it would be an instant winner...
but will it get http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/01/26/ipad_fleshlight_design/
and all 5 of them are here to downvote you...
As well as letting the reader know that it is valid
It could be useful to let the user know that they have just been read!
+1 for 'The Constructificator'!
Android is available on multiple device form factors/hardware specs etc... but even though Android does a very good job of allowing your app to run over all of these you still need to put some work into supporting if you want 100% coverage, especially in a game. Can't really expect a magic wand to suddenly make your app run over everything.
Also @AC: RE: RE: Jeez
If you left your door open and someone came in and stole your stuff, do you think your contents insurers would pay up?
"Italian prime minister style orgy"
A new Reg standard measurement?
and gl. woo!
There are two issues here, which some people seem to be missing....
1: Collection of SSID/MAC addresses for use in Wi-Fi location-based services.
2: "Accidental" recording of user data sent un-encrypted .
I don't think anyone can have a real issue with 1, but the debate in about number 2. It is wrong to steal poeples data - this could well include usernames and passwords!
Although personally I think that browsing the intertubes via un-encrypted wireless is pretty much the same as shouting down the street - anyone within range can hear you, so you probably shouldn't tell them something you don't want them to hear!
Fedora 12 has made a start on this with KSM: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/KSM
"Allow KVM guest virtual machines to share identical memory pages. This is especially useful when running multiple guests from the same or similar base operating system image. Because memory is shared, the combined memory usage of the guests is reduced."
Not quite the same as just enough OS for the required app - but a start to share all the common bits of the OS...
A title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.
