Unless you mean something different to what I think you mean you *can* flag up emails in the WM8 email client?
You betcha. You may be anonymous by name but with iOS and Android you are certainly not anonymous by nature.
The price is not right
I picked up a Harmony 555 for £40 three years ago which also can control up to 15 devices but has a monochrome soft-key screen so much easer on the batteries. Wouldn't be without it although it took a while and some patience to set it up way I want it.
I agree that the web interface is clunky compared to the much slicker local app but some things seem to be only doable using the former.
But will it help Arthur Dent ...
... get a nice hot cup of tea?
Wouldn't work on me
For the simple reason I use a wrap around phone cover in normal use and have to let the flap swing free and easy away from the back of the phone to let the dog see the rabbit. :D
Re: Looks better than it is
Any Toppy/Mystuff user playing with one of these is in for a culture shock. For example FIVE key presses to get to see a list of your recordings and SIX key presses to see your list of upcoming timers? Who thought that was a good idea?
If there are enough users with the knowledge and experience perhaps the adminstrator can be persuaded to make the firmware open source?
Re: Catch up tv is only 9.2%..
It couldn't be easier to connect a computer to a TV. My Acer Revo is connected with an HDMI lead and has a wireless keyboard and mouse and gives me unfettered access to all the catchup online services and other providers without being straight-jacketed by what the TV makers want to restrict me too. Youview is unnecessary.
I have been running three twin-tuner PVRs for several years now. Really is needed for making sure you do not get clashes on late-finishing / early-starting B2B recordings on different channels and for capturing all the F1 and other live sports coverage.
Looks like the PSU capacitor replacement dudes will be rubbing their hands at the extra business headed their way if these heat capturing enclosures catch on.
This is surely breaking the standard
Something you have + Something you know
tenet of secure athentification? Unless you also still have to enter a PIN or somesuch as well?
Griffin FM transmitter
Shame this does not work off batteries as well as the aux power socket as when parked up waiting for the next delivery my van turns off the power unless I keep the ignition or sidelights on. I have a cheap far eastern knock off transmitter which keeps the rechargable batteries fully topped up and does the job despite the tacky build quality (the tuning buttons fell off on day 2).
Humax Foxsat HDR remote response / Deleting lots
As well as making sure you have removed both films from the front panel (there is a second one behind the flap) look to see if you have one of the models which has the coating all the way across with no clear hole left where the sensor is. If so you can scrape the coating off in front of the sensor to significantly improve the remote response.
To delete lots and lots and leave it to chug away move all recordings to be deleted to one folder (or to the top level) then Select All in that folder then Delete. Time for lunch.
Warm air does not leak out. Cold air leaks in.
If you need more connectivity then either get an AV amp which will have more inputs than you can shake a stick at or if you really are happy with the weedy audio of flat-screen TV sets then use an HDMI switch.
Still crippled after all these years
All these devices (PS3 included) do not give you unfettered access to IPTV content whatever the source, whatever the format. Instead your are nannied into only having what they want you to have by channelling you through their portal. I use a nettop which does not have any of these restrictions.
Psion 3 series
I loved my 3c and replaced it with a 3mx but it had to go when the screen ribbon cable failed one more time. A weakness that has put me of flip-phones and slider phones to this day. One thing not mentioned is running it for a month or more on one set of batteries which means you could be away in the wilds for ages which is not what you can do with a modern energy-munching smartphone.
But, but, but
A truly secure OS does not allow any 3rd party software to compromise it.
