I'm still trying to get over why you'd have a SIM card tattoo..
(not inherently a bad thing, just, well, you gotta admit it's a bit of a left-field choice)
Really? My rudimentary mandarin (ha-ha) suggests that's a memory upgrade to the printer itself.
out here in civilised central europe, a leccy bike would be jolly helpful to the daily commute
no white-van-man here
I'd really quite like one of these - tho a 50cc version (equivalent) would allow me to use all the bicycle paths as well. Which would be an added bonus.
Most of the comments above that say "why do you ever need more?" simply lack imagination
I have the middle / average offering from my media supplier (phone, TV and 'net) and a just-ran speedtest gives me 59Mb down and 6Mb up
would I change it to something lower? Would I hell..
forget torrents (it's not illegal here, so off that high horse of yours please) - *everything* on the 'net is glorious and pretty darn near instant.
gotta love Amsterdam :)
PayPal - not a chance in hell
So, if you have a problem with PayPal you can not find real people to solve it.
Your mail will go into an automated stream of back-and-forth never really getting solved.
You might - if very lucky - find a warm body somewhere after a few months of having your account frozen
they're the very definition of incompetence
If you spend your life on airplanes, trains and in hotels, then the smaller and lighter your whole travel bad is, the better.
Your laptop needs to be strong enough for Powerpoint, maybe a demo (which will probably be a remote connection thing anyway) and email.
In theory an iPad should do it...
perhaps I'm cold cruel and heartless
but ok, I enjoyed the movie - particularly the anti-murkan capitalists-are-bastards rhetoric, but I didnt cry (once), nor did I relive the story in my mind again, and again, and again, re-weeping as (in)appropriate
certainly wouldn't buy it - not once, let alone each of their daft re-editions.
I wonder how long - if at all - there'll be a Perian type port to enable the ATV to play all (or most) media types
the human cast of Wall-e (that oh-so-shitty-piece-of-shit-spew)
but instead of in space they're in Britain
and instead of 'Murkan accents they have sarf lundin ones
man, it's not a pretty thought
Well, I for one and waiting for Version 2 and then will probably get one - will replace the expensive Macbook pro with a cheaper iMac and iPad
but I never, ever, ever buy Version 1 of any (apple) product
for once I'm glad..
that I live in the Netherlands and we get our shiny new Apple kit in the nth tranche of late adopters.
actually, that's not true - I'm always glad I live here and not in Police/Nanny state(s)..
but that's another debate for another day
So may as well embrace it
but those bastard manufacturers are going to have to prove this won't be another BD vs HD, VHS vs Betamax - debacle before I spent a penny of my money on it
When I buy meself a nice new telly it'll be the other features and price that dictate which comes home.. if it happens to include 3D so be it..
movies and TV series
They also need to pull their fingers out their collective buttholes and ensure decent access to content
here, in the Netherlands there is no tv content or movies.
as much as I love the apple thing, a PS3 simply makes more sense. Just make sure your PS3 can't install any root-kits on the TV, fridge, etc...
mine went just fine
My venerable ol' 16GB 3G worked hundreds. No problems at all except it took aeons to do the initial backup - and the whole thing took about 2 hours
The folders are nice and the unified mailbox is helpful. And I like the reworked maps app.
Its a bit slow, but to be honest, it's not slower than before. I suspect my phone is suffering from Flash rot and needs a total reformat.
Young Tristan me lad..
The impetuousness of youth..
Reminds me of the swarms of Italians who visit my home (Amsterdam) - all wearing the same standard issue uniform - shiny black jacket and G-Star denims. All, of course, to show their unique individuality.
Reg readers vs the rest of the world
I'd imagine the typical (is there such a thing) Reg reader would froth and gnash his/her teeth at the iOS geek lock out and that seems to be evident in the reporting in the publication
so for most here, Android's a clear winner
for the rest of the world who see phones as appliances or fashion statements or tools or trinkets of delight I don't think the lock-out factor means a thing.
Neither does 5, 7, 8 or 12 MPs in the camera.
I'll get one
A colleague bought his new toy in to the office yesterday and despite my best attempts to avoid it, I spent a happy (and critical) 15 minutes with it.
I'm sold, tho I never buy Gen 1 Apple hardware products. Ever.
I'm a MacTard (or whatever the appropriate title du jour would be)
but I'm also a reasonably bright aware human being (cue comments about my debatable brightness if using a mac etc etc blah blah)
but I've been running AV on all macs in my household for quite some time.
It picks up loads of crapware too - mostly sent by my windows using friends
shame you poor English
First the Icelandic's take all your money, now they take all your travel options
/off to listen to some Bjork.
I'll buy one
Not version 1, mind, never buy version 1 anything Apple, but in time I will
We moved house recently and whilst our stuff is in storage/transit, Spouse has taken over the MacBook Pro, so I've been forced to use my iPhone for pretty much every thing
and honestly, for what I want - in the evening, on the tram, in the train, at the station, at my office (a rabid bank where Thou Shalt Not Touch The Network Or Your Own Email) the iPhone is mostly perfect, just too small, and a bit small.
so a bigger, better iPhone will do the job hundreds.
Clearly my needs to completely different to most techies, and my religious I-Dont-Care-About-The-Browser-Or-Gubbins stance puts me at odds with most readers of this forum, but too bad: it'll suit me and my needs jjjjuuuussssttttt fine
you bought a tablet PC and have the audacity to comment on other people's choices?
I guess it makes a change from your usual running from dark shadow to dark shadow avoiding the daylight
(ps - this is a joke... yes, it's at your expense... yes, it'll probably make you angry.. but it's still just a joke)
can I just say...
that picture is, to me, and a small but significant percentage of your readership (probably single digit %) far far better than the beach babe with the netbook that graced your pages so often over the last few years.
so where was my hate speech?
sexually frustrated - well, apart from the irish catholics, that's largely true;
hate spewing - nope, doesn't denigrate their lifestyle choices - just an observation on what they say
dress wearing - ok, you got me there - that is demeaning. Those lovely frocks are obviously their choice and I respect that
delusions of adequacy and relevance - so remind me, what's % of the UK population go to church these days?
talk about a teaspoon of piss in the sunday school teachers tea..
Entourage blows steaming chunks every time something comes along - truly, if there were Razzies for software (are there?) then it should get every award
But Snow Leopards native support for hexchange works great
Excel for Mac is frustrating, but ok - to bojennet - Numbers is pretty, but it lacks too many features (lookups, array processing to name just two major ones) to be Prime Time
but the rest - word and ppt rock.. really
aint that one for the books, St Stevie being right about just how crap flash is.
Lack of flash is NOT a flaw - the black-jersey'd one said so himself - its a user protecting Feature
so please, have some respect for The Great Man and his latest Creation of Adoration
The Dutch police use them
I have seen two Dutch police at Schiphol aboard Segways zooting about like loons.
Tho I haven't seen any Segway mounted cops in and around the town.
Foot mounted - yes
Bike mounted - yes
Horse mounted - yes...
I think, if I was a male dog, kept far far way from the members of my own species who could assist me in matters ejaculatory, and lacking the thumbs to take things into my own hands, I think I might enjoy the odd assisted tug from my *cough* 'hand-ler'
It's a strange and odd thing for a human to do tho
strange strange strange indeed
any particular reason - other then, of course, as troll bait - why this story even references the respective sexualities?
gimme 10mm anyday
I haven't carried a gun, or even owned one for quite some many years now
but the last I had was an HK 10mm
Truly sublime - well, in it's function as a firearm.
a laptop can be released that is capable of running Windows 7
That's one strange strange dude.
I think if I saw that coming at me I'd probably shit meself.
