Ordered at 17:10 and it said 1-2 weeks. I unticked the associate with my google account - what was that about?
Completely NEW camera sensor
So why should we trust a review that says this is the same sensor??? This is a new camera, full 1080p video with still capture at the same time (never had this before) and full resolution burst mode, zero shutter lag with lots of new software features too.
OLD OLD news...
Actually, so old that Apple have now changed the result so that it says things like "you're holding it" you're kidding, right?" etc. Oh yes, the results are MOST DEFINITELY filtered and monitored by Apple.
I installed it on my netbook, I did require to install a separate intel graphics driver so that I could up my resolution so that the metro apps work, but now all is ok.
1280x960 is the recommended minimum resolution, but the metro apps will run at lower, just not netbook low :-)
I have found the new start menu great. Very quick to get new emails, as Gmail account is linked and Gcalendar and contacts are linked too so all running well.
I would think over the next month or two that we will see alot of new "Metro" compatible programs appearing so that integration with the Live tiles works better than the "what you actually see" view from the article.
I love the speed of startup, hibernate, and everything is nice and fluid, closing metro apps is cool, just drag from the top down. The wide interface is actually quicker to use than scrolling through the old start menu list and you can customise the tiles so that your favourites are listed first which I have found speeds up me using the PC, rather than what is suggested by this article. Big metro app integration over the next few months is going to transform the start menu into something that is really "teeming with life" much like the advantages of the widgets and homescreen design of Android.
Big thumbs up from me.
3 in NI
Three definitely has the best 3G coverage in Northern Ireland from all of North Down and Belfast up to Ballymena, and up to Londonderry. Also has coverage in town centres, e.g. Newry, Enniskillen, Omagh, Dungannon, Ballycastle, Coleraine but it's the country coverage that makes the difference...
I just wish that Mid County Down was covered with 3G as 2G is so slow for data.
Get a life and what about the irish flag?
"If they're mad now... Just wait until they see the last third of the Irish national flag."
Really... what is this all about? haven't they looked at their own flag recently?
Three coverage ??
I have a 3 dongle and a 3 mobile and while the coverage is fairly good for Northern Ireland, most of southern County Down is poor with no coverage contrary to the map shown.
I have found the best and most detailed Three coverage maps from the Three website. You can zoom in and get very accurate results which tally with real world use.
