Lenovo iPad-smiting Windows 8 slate slips out

Leon
Thumb Down

Low rez lenovo tablets look horrible (I've played with the lenovo droid tablet).

As an avid Apple hater, I'd have to say :

low rez+the thick gorilla glass = fail display

Steer clear of bad displays!

Google music is available in the UK; just use OrBot to 'unlock' google music one time..

Jabra Clipper

Mine has been though the washing machine and still works fine.

Only complaint is trying to use it for gaming or video there is noticeable lag, though not sure this might be an issue with shoddy bluetooth receivers.

Jabra Halo 2 Bluetooth headset

I wonder if these headphones exibit lag making them un-usable for the PC / Laptop.

Eversince I trashed a latop by 'forgeting' my headphones were plugged in when I went to answer the door, I have been looking for a pair that works with the PC and computergames.

All the bluetooth headsets I have tried to date have about a .75second lag to render the sound out of the earphones; you don't noticve this with music as it's not syncing to visuals; and you don't notice it with voice calls as they are lower 'rez' and render in realtime.

It would be nice if El Reg could try these out on a PC game for usablity...

Anti-depressant Headphones?

Very cool!

"....This is detected when a weak current, which runs between the buds, is broken."

Having a low level eletric current running though your brain when using these bad-boys will defo help fend off depression and cure bi-polar diseases!

It's almost like these were designed by a higher power to cure mankinds ills.

US lawmakers question Google over privacy policy

If you have nothing to hide why should you be worried?

If you have something to hide you should not be using the products (unless aliased though the TOR network).

The www.tvcatchup.com will work in any flash browser. Maybe this can be mentioned in the artical?

I use the website all the time when cooking on my phone with a set of speakers. Champion.

HTC Sensation XL hip-hops onto UK shelves

Leon

So the XE and O have better rez. Also the O is the same processor just underclocked to 1.2Ghz.

A simple custom rom (which will invalidate the warrenty (see XDA developers)) will turn a O into a XE.

So in short, the O/XE is the same as XL, except it has a smaller screen, but, this is the kicker, much better rez so there is more readable text that fits on the screen.

The reason WHY the O is underclocked is when the chip runs at 1.5Ghz it has a worse battery life. So having the ablity to flash a standard ROM on the O gives it the advantage the others do not have (longer batt.) of course if battery is an issue you would of flashed Cynogen mod already...

WTF?

CGI

Hey, it's just CGI footage. No Gameplay no UI etc. If they made a full CGI trailer for PACMAN or Space Invaders would you get excited then. The only real news item here is BIOWARE made a random CGI trailer.

Thumb Down

I own this

I brought this on Steam over XMAS and the game release got extended to June! I could not get a refund and I have a total of 11mins of playtime now. What a weak game :| trouble is I cannot ask my brother to buy a copy for co-op as I think it is was overpriced for such a featureless game.

What about the CPU?

The HD touch version 1 had a really weak CPU, leading to stuttering when trying to play divx files in core player. How does the CPU on this compare?

Fly

I had a fly in my ear once, it took 7 hours to die.

Really werid as it was against the ear drum you could hear every muscle in it's body slowy give out.

I was of course in the NHS hospital waiting room for over 7 hours.

For years later I was expecting some maggots to crawl out of my ear.

Why the world has lost interest in IPTV services

Leon

Hmm it has been viable for years

After a popular show has finished someone always encodes it and uploads it to a nttp server, from which (with a small monthly fee) you can download binaries at the speed of your modem.

I have not seen the need for a Digital subscription for years and I get to watch my fav shows as they are released in the USA not having to wait for them to appear in the UK.

Nokia boosts downloads with low-cost 3G phone

Still over priced price plans

Cheap handsets are fine.

But data access is still way too over priced for the people this phone is targetting! Carriers are shotting themselfs in the foot by being to greedy, would not more reasonable prices bring in a more realistic customer base?
