Don't forget the ketchup
This is just a reflection of the new entrant to the market (Android) competing effectively on price and growing the overall market significantly. Nothing significant has been taken away from Apple, although I'm sure there will be people who have moved from iPad to Nexus or Kindle.
Wait a couple more years until the market stabilises and then this kind of information will be much more meaningful.
I hadn't heard of any of them
Thanks for the handy heads up to some new torrent sites.
WoW is for carebears
Now if he'd played Eve I'd have been impressed. The scale of betrayal and infighting in Eve still pales in comparison to local poltiics though
Re: What legit TOR traffic will a company ever use ?
What you've just discovered is "churnalism", where the journo copys and pastes straight from the original article without applying any intelligence.
Post-Olympic normality is resumed.
Sorry about that.
My post olympic normality was resumed when they put the spice "girls" and a bunch of "supermodels" on the stage at the closing ceremony. A finer collection of talentless oxygen thieves in one place than I thought possible.
Re: PLease tell me he patented this
A method - perfectly good for patenting (although arguably weaker than other patents). Also, he has an example of how you would do this - again perfectly suitable for an "instrument" type patent which strengthens the original one.
Re: Rule Britannia anyone?
Which is lovely, but if we keep giving great shit like this away we'll always be at the mercy of the banks to create wealth, and not make the money we're capable of from a high tech industry
PLease tell me he patented this
Otherwise, he's a fool
Can you even claim copyright of a tweet? I thought there were certain barriers that had to be overcome for something to be considered copyrightable?
Does this make a mockery of the fact that the injunction bond recently awarded in the US to apple was only ~$90M?
I thought that was way too low.
Saw this and checked my spam folder to be greeted by...
Well, that's me sold. And it's not as though malware on android is not known or anything is it?
although the iBrain does carry a USB port for uploading.
THE SINGULARITY IS HERE.
I find this a bit wierd. Nokia claimed/pledged/promised they wouldn't file patents against Linux kernel and now it's being used as evidence? How about google's pledge not to do evil?
These aren't contracts. They're public statements of intent and hence are only valid until they change their mind.
Re: Oh FFS!
"I was immediately taken aback by the San Diego's 4in capacitive display, which wows with a resolution of 600 x 1084 pixels and 16m-strong colour palette"
Reads like it's straight from a press release.
With respect (always a good start to a comment) that's horseshit.
I've had a lumia 800 since practically launch, and while the battery life stank to high heaven for a long while, it's pretty much on a par with my other halfs iphone 4 now. The UI is slick - never had any stutter or sluggishness at all, reception is great - and I'm on three, which is always a coverage challenge... As for Apps - sure, there are less there, but apple and android practically had a three year headstart - what do you expect?
Re: Can I...
"If you want something to happen you sue."
Errm, isn't this what he's doing?
I found out the hard way what BT consider to be a bad enough line to get out of the contract. I moved house and am at the end of the exchange, and would be getting 3Mbps from a 10Mbps line. Apparently it's only bad enough if it drops to 0.5Mbps...
Not enough to cancel the contract which has 12 months left to run, instead I pay £130 to install at the new place or £170 to buy myself out.
The reason they want attractive women in space is probably the secondary benefit of presenting them to the population once they've returned. Nothing says "study hard" than a hot woman being heavily marketed by the Party
I'd like to see them try and buy ARM to lock in that supply. This would spark a massive bidding war and my shares in ARM would go thorugh the roof.
How fragmented is the LTE spectrum?
I wanted to see how badly fragmented the LTE spectrum was and so came up with some pictures rather than the usual unreadable tables you see.
FDD is not good. TDD however looks well organised and well planned - wonder why.
Coverage is not a right
@dafydd - there comes a point at which is is not economical to put new sites in to cover the last people. All operators make different decisions about that so I suggest you either check out which is best for your area, get one of the gateways you mention or suck it up
We're in the age of user generated content and there's nothing on youtube? For shame :(
Low power GSM
There were a load of low power GSM licenses bought a few years ago for 30k - surely Ubi or fon can buy one of those and then build there own modern (simple) GSM / GPRS core with a roaming deal with one of the big 4 operators for national coverage?
Just checked back on this review.
Regarding Noise - this is practically silent. I've had Eve-online running on a 42" LCD and 720p content running and I can't hear it at all. I'm not even convinced there is a fan in there and I do mean that.
Just a shame that boxee and iplayer aren't playing nice at the minute :(
so if there's no data link, how do you update the speed limits when roadworks are in place?
This feels to me like FUD on the part of TPB.
Two scenarios here:
1. The prediction is right, and they can claim it was pre-judged, a sham trial etc. Loads of publicity and potentially a mistrial
2. The prediction is wrong, they're innocent - who cares?
Smart, if slightly underhand move by TPB
Prosecuting the customers
so if they do this to any household who fileshares, will they actually have any customers left?
Sky still won?
Even though Virgin seem to have won in both cases, this had the desired effect for Sky in that (a) They got tons of new subscribers at little cost and (b) prevented Virgin getting a content partner that would have caused Sky some issues around the original TV
They don't have one of these pointless schemes, so you don't have to fret. Of course, you have to find online stores that *take* amex, but that's getting better these days.
