Strangely enough, there is an Amazon Video app in the Apple (ios) app store.

Has a taxi company that uses the model S. Apparently works out quite well as it is mostly ferrying people to and from the airport, which is a fairly short trip. Battery lasts long enough for a shift, then charges overnight.
If you were going to buy one, but are looking at other options (and there fore didn't buy one), how do you know Safari doesn't work?
Seems to be working fine to me.
Would be interesting to see it cut in half, see what the layers look like
While that is true, if you find that in the future you are, say, buying a new sofa (mattress, whatever), and decide to donate your old one (sans tags) to a charity shop, there is a pretty strong chance they wont take it.
I dunno, I thought our one day in August was quite pleasant this year.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if that is the way things go. With the price of a 32gb SD card or usb flash drive, surely it wouldn't be too much of a step to fill one with a film (and some extra features) write protect it and stick it in a branded case.
"We have never gone to put the TV on and found that it won't work because the remote needs charging"
Like AC says. More than once I have got home from a weekend away and found that I left the Logitech remote on the sofa, not on charge, and it is dead. Pain in the arse.
Funny thing is, my iPhone and iPad both have Amazon instant video on them, but my Roku doesn't, which is rather annoying. I am assuming you are in the USA where Sky haven't been able to get their claws into the Roku boxes (at least that is what I heard has happened in the UK)
I'd always figured he was talking about 'phones anyway.
What with the smaller screens, if you had screwed up the UI so much that it was unusable without a pin to poke it with, then you had failed.
why can't the new content be added to the bottom, so that when you don't turn up half an hour early only to find a load of pre-event gumph, you can read through it, from top to bottom (easily skipping anything you are not interested in), (as you would any other text based item) with it updating at the bottom as you progress. Instead of, having to scroll all the way to the bottom (which could take some doing if you are late, and they are rapidly posting), and then slowly work your way back up to the top, while being interrupted every time a new post is added and being jumped around all over the place as stupid hi-rez photos of a video on a screen, taken from the back of a conference hall, are uploaded and re-sized and re-rendered.
"The Enrichment Center reminds you that the Weighted Companion Cube will never threaten to stab you and, in fact, cannot speak."
few more than that, but like Lost all Faith said, it's almost always the same, err, people
don't know about other places, but here, we generally recognise the voice of the person asking for a re-set.
If we can't audibly confirm who it is, we take other methods to authenticate
Apparently, there is a web around here somewhere that I am supposed to log onto
the thing that puts me off cases with batteries, either as replacements to removable batteries, or ones that plug into the charge port, is that when you inevitably get a new phone, you are left with a case / battery that is no good to you, and you need to buy a new one.
With a USB battery pack, I change my phone, and it still works with the new one, it can also be used to provide emergency power to more than _just_ my phone.

I've had my PebbleTime since mid June, and generally, I'm very happy with it. Having owned and used (for a reasonable amount of time) both the original Pebble and Steel, I feel I have a good basis for comparison.
With the screen, I feel that it is still glanceable, which for a watch, is important. The thing I have noticed is that because it is a colour screen, I am inclined to use more intricate watch faces, which in turn does make it slightly more difficult to see the time, at a glance.
Just this morning, i have received an OTA firmware update, which has addressed at least one of my complaints (they had removed the 'dismiss all' function for notifications, this is now back) and also at least one from from the review (you can now change font size) you can also change the intensity and duration of the backlight, yes, this will (may) impact battery life.
Having had mine for a month, I haven't noticed any dust build up, or scratches. I have not been overly 'precious' with it.
Battery life seems to be about the same, will vary depending on how many notifications you get, what kind of watch face you use and many other things, I currently have "30%" and will probably charge it on Sunday morning before I go out. One improvement with the power management I have noticed is that when the battery reaches "0%" the watch will automatically switch into low power mode, a very basic watch face, no notifications, and no access to the menus, I have yet to work out just how long it will stay at "0%" but it is several hours (I always get bored of waiting for it cut out and charge it).
I have not seen the sloth, on my calendar, if I have no events, I always have the approximate weather and the sunrise / set times.
The screen on my first gen pebble (from Kickstarter) failed after about 6 months, it was 'tearing', some of the image was being left behind on transitions, so you would end up with parts of several 'pages' being shown at the same time.
I filed a support call with Pebble, and a new watch arrived 6 weeks later. Have had no problems with that one since, that was what seems like a long time ago, easily a year, maybe even two.
I realise that you don't have that option, but it does seem to be a problem with some of the earlier builds. (I got a pebble Steel, no problems with that.)
While I don't agree with any of this nonsense, and do in fact agree with you, I can see it from the following point of view....
If you have brought a CD, you have purchased a copy of that music to listen to on that CD. If you wanted to listen to it in a more convenient manner, then maybe you should have brought it in a more convenient format, for example a digital download. If you want to listen to the CD and listen to it in a more convenient manner, then pay for both.
As I said, I don't necessarily agree with this, but I can see the point.
Personally I take the approach as mentioned by someone else. I buy a CD so that I have an archive version of the music that I listen to, so that *when* something happens to my digital version, I can recover it, without having to rely on which ever shop I purchased it from still being around to let me download another copy.
like Literally Actually, actually.
I saw someone the other day holding their phone in normal, up against the side of their head style. Nothing strange there I hear you say. Thing was, as I walked past them it was clear that the phone was in speaker-phone mode.
What seems really strange to me is the number of people I see, walking (on their own) down the street, having a conversation with a phone held in front of their face, in speaker-phone mode, so the whole world can hear both sides of their conversation. My only conclusion is that they somehow accidentally turned it on once, and haven't been able to switch it off.
Dragons are like Ninjas.
They still exist, they are just very good at hiding, and if you ever do see one, you probably wont have time to tell anyone about it.
Looking forward to rummaging around in my bag so that I can pay with my iPad, can't be any dafter than using the damn thing as a camera , no?
Microsoft are preparing a global advertising campaign in the works and is planning "celebrations" at retailers.
We are preparing a statement for our users saying if you chose to update your home PC and it breaks, we are not responsible for fixing it.
As far as I was aware, any deaths were attributed to the earthquake and or tsunami, and not the power plant.
I could of course be wrong (wouldn't be the first time, sure as hell won't be the last)
I am tempted to sign up again, just so I can give you another up vote.
I have found that as I am often already listening to music if I am walking around a city on my own, then having the appropriate app set up so that every now and again, I get in my earphone "in 50ft turn left down this road" is quite helpful for making me look like I know where I'm going.
I think the problem here is that Amazon are not saying, 'sorry, we have no Rolex, how about this nice Omega.'
When being asked for said Rolex, they are just bringing out a tray of Omegas, keeping quiet, and hoping the shopper doesn't notice.
That's what Air Drop is for, right?
if you are a business, chances are you are running the Enterprise version of whichever windows you currently have (for example we are on Win7 Enterprise).
If that is the case, there is no 'free upgrade' for Enterprise users, only for 'consumer' version users.
I can understand that some (very) small business might be running 7Pro in which case they might have problems, but they are *probably* small enough for it to be easy to manage.
radio in the morning, music or podcasts in car on way to work, radio at work, more in car on way home, and then usually the radio when I get in.
I have no problem paying for new music, but in the last few years most of what I have heard on the radio has seemed, average... (despite listening to a variety of stations)
I don't have a massive amount of stored music, but what I do have is on a (now discontinued) iPod, so that when I go anywhere, I can take it with me.
The idea of paying more in a year than I ever have (or am ever likely to) on new physical music for a service that I can only use while in range of the internet, so not while I am driving through foreign countries, on aeroplanes or ferries (times when I am likely to want music). For a service that if I wanted to use while out and about in this country (out of range of wifi) I would be paying for again in data costs. For a service that is either a glorified radio (which I currently get courtesy of the Beeb) or that I have to search for something that I know I want to listen to, (which will probably be something I already have, if I like it enough to want to listen to it).
Just doesn't appeal.
I have signed up for the three month free trial, and have made sure that auto-renew is switched off. I am willing to give it the benefit of the doubt, but so far, other than a quick look when I signed up, I haven't been back since.
To those (much earlier) posters saying that humans have been on the earth for (x) number of years and in that time we have been hit by (y) number of asteroids. Do take in to account for nearly all of those (x) years, the human population was a miniscule fraction of what it is today, and how many of these (y) asteroids have hit the planet in the last 200 years?
Lets say (approximately) that in the last 6000 years the global population went from 10mil to 1bn, and then in the last 150 years, it has gone to over 7bn. These people all have to go somewhere and this is usually either into places they weren't before, (meaning more targets for asteroids) or into the same places but more densely than before (meaning more devastating targets for same asteroids) and in some cases, both, (so new massive targets).
Fridays are for fixing the things that broke on Thursday (and then getting out early to the pub).
You do not risk breaking anything on Friday
Burn them with fire
thanks for the info
As far as I am aware, there is no current mechanism on iOS to block ads in Safari. (Or that there are extensions in Safari at all, regardless of platform)
So the statement
"the feature could kill popular advertising blockers" which (at least to me) implies that people might stop using "popular advertising blockers" to use the Apple version instead, can not be accurate, as there are no "popular advertising blockers" on iOS (or Safari), at this time.
You can't take business away from someone, if they have no business to start with.
If there are 'popular advertising blockers' on iOS, could someone kindly point me towards one, as it would be quite nice to have. I have used our friend google, and only got links to this story (both here and elsewhere)
Considering it already is (and the occasional Lizard), I would say the chance of continuing to do so is pretty high
you just do snapchat (or get a teenager to do it)
I wish i could say i was suprised to see this happen again. Apple did this with the first Pebble app, but it did get through eventually.
At the time it seemed to me to be a case of Apple demonstrating that they had the power to halt the progress of Pebble, and that was before Apple even had a stake in the smartwatch game.
Hopefully this is just Apple, again, proving that it is their yard, they get to chose who plays and that if they wanted to, they could shut Pebble down (on iOS at least), but they're not going to, because they have nothing to fear.
Like they removed the Kindle, Nook and other assorted eBook apps when they added Books to the core OS?
Or all the various photo viewing / sharing apps. Or messaging apps? Or mapping / directions apps?
Still going, with Jack Dee in the chair, and (surprisingly?) still quite good
"we've got our best man on it"
if I'm correct (might not be) this is more due to someone else (sky) paying roku uk NOT to include / allow Amazon prime.
Amazon video used to be available, but i think it stopped around the time that the NowTV (sky catch up) box (a re badged Roku) was released.
Because not many rooms have 5.1 light fittings....
Seriously though, if you had some desk lamps scattered around, it could work, or if you have a 'conventional' 5.1 set up, and you could add a couple of ceiling lamps to make it 7.1.
Mine were up in the 100's until i spent 5 mins with the remote using the menu on the tv to swap the HD ones for the non-HD ones.
Swapping channels (creating your own channel list) is something that all freeview tv's i have had for some time, have been able to do. Great for getting rid of all the crap 'low' channels (itv, itv2, bbc3), and bringing in the ones you want from further down the list (5usa, cbs action).
"halve road deaths overnight by banning anyone under 25 from the roads"
the problem with this is, how many under 25 accidents are because the driver is young and reckless, and how many are because the driver is new and inexperienced?
Changing the age limit might help with the first, but is unlikely to affect the second.
depends on the airline. in some, 1 carry on is 1! carry on (no laptop bags, umbrellas, motorcycle helmets, handbags). Others, it is 1+personal item.
"Complicating matters further, the iPad doesn't support mice."
Agreed on the keyboards though, i have one of the logitech ones, doubles as a case, brilliant.
