Re: ouch Handbag!
Well, as long as.they're agreeing with the neckbeard crowd about Microsoft, people might think they know about computers.
Re: Engaging comic-book-guy mode....
Gosh comics definitely my retailer of choice when I'm in that London. Forbiden Planet has all the customer service of a super market, and tattoos and piercings do not substitute for eye contact and interest from a sales person.
I'll give that a go. The article has inspired me to give 2000 ad another shot after 10 years away.
Re: Four words
Never such a fan of Bisley. Good cover artist, but his flowing, multicolour work didn't work as well it strips.
True that. The UNIX/Linux evangelical movement don't like it and pretend it doesn't happen, but you get just as much migration back to Windows as away from.
As in all these things, if you want the truth, follow the money. I've not seen Microsoft filling for bankruptcy lately.
Apparently we're all redundant
Well if the NatWest hire me (scheduling and operations expert, due to be redundant at the end of this week), this'll never happen again.
Been on a windows phone for over a year now (HTC HD7) and I've had no problems. Upgraded from an iphone 3gs.
For me, my windows phone feels more like a comunications device with media things included, rather than the other way around for the iphone. That was effectivly an MP3 player with a phone tacked to it. Unless something remarkable happens, I'll be staying with Windows for my next phone
Recently taken another bite of the apple with my first ipad. Lovely screen, but I can't get used to how disorganised it feels. Even after stacking my apps in folders I struggle to find things. Having to resort to search each time is not good.
As well as that, my phone recovered from a trip though the washing machine with no decernable damage after it'd dried off (so obviously WP7 is better ;))
This looks more like a new governement trying to gain absolute control of the nets using the trojan horse of moral outrage and family/islamic values. They know they cam to power due to the arab spring and the co-ordination that can be achieved through the net so they want to make sure that it doesn't happen again.
Here's the new boss, same as the old boss.
Well done. Perhaps you can tell us some of the other things you won't buy this week?
Re: iTunes is utter rubbish. What bolox
Come back and talk when you're talking 80,000 tracks, including books on MP3, split over 2 networked drives. See if you're that keen then.
You're right on the money about Sony though. I still wake up in cold sweats about having to use Sonic Stage. (HD-NW5, cracking MP3 player, still better sound quality than my iPod, but the software makes you want to chew your own leg off)
How would anyone know it's his car if he hasn't marked it?
C'mon scientists, get your priorities sorted
Medical nanobots = good.
Space Stations and moon bases = good.
Cure for cancer = ++good.
Water Powered Car = good.
Jetpacks = good.
Deadly robo-wasp swarm = No. Sort your priorities!
Really? You don't think that exploring the majority of the earths surface is worth doing because there's "nothing there"?
Ocean crust is reletivly thin, lets get some geothermal heat plants going down there
Not biased at all. You won't find anyone who identifies them self as left wing now. It's not the 30's anymore. And Mugabe is left wing in the same way Germanys National Socialist party were socialist. ie, only for a very restricted part of society.
Your statement is up there with yanks who claim that democrats are fascist because the democratic party supported slavery in the 1800's. Things move on and conservatives are stupid.
I won't let the fact I've never seen one stop me having an opinion!!!!
I've got a winphone and like the integration of Facebook. There's no Facebook button, (you're thinking of the HTC ChaCha and Salsa, both Androids) and if you don't want to use the Facebook integration, you don't sign it in. End of.
But oh so slooooow
I've tried the OpenDNS thing with a NetGear router, but I reverted back after a couple of weeks and just locked down my boys PC. The NetGear kit gave me about a quarter of my usual speed, and it's not fast to start with.
Well, I hear that USB ports are putting out some of that new fangled electricity now. Could be the tiny battery an LCD display requires could charge from there.
I'd have though MacGyver would have more faith in gadgets!
It's cost them at least one sale
My PS3 breathed it's last back in November but I've decided not to replace it due to Sonys high handed treatment of its customers. This on top of their poor customer service record and the way they killed Lik Sang a few years back have been enough for me.
You don't get to restrict peoples right to complain just because you've fouled up. They should be spending time and money securing their networks, not on lawers to protext their asses.
Whilst Karen Gillan provided some decent eye candy, the girl can't act for toffee. When she started on the series she only had 2 expresions, "goggle" and "pout". In the second series, these were joined by "goggle and pout".
Works for Windows
They've looked at the pattern for laptop sales. Windows laptops aren't as slick or as pretty looking as Macbooks, but sell many more because of the price difference.
You can see from the lack of sales of ultra-books what happens when you go to market at the same price point.
People aren't "too stupid" to buy a "better" tablet, they just want the shiny thing off the advert.
Stories like this pop up every now and again, always with the headline, <ACTIVITY> CHANGES YOUR BRAIN!
It's missing the point. Changing is what the brain does. If it didn't change, you'd have a novelty cauliflower door stop instead of a thinking engine.
Is handicapped on the list of unwords this week? I must have missed the news letter.
Ok, so the Doctor has regenerated as an american teen, but can't remember who he is. He comes to terms with the strange, fragmented memories he starts to get by singing in their glee club.
and it should have sexy vampires.
Thought about it, but now
I've recently replaced my laptop and put some serious though into getting an ultrabook, as they're so pretty. In the end, I couldn't rationalise spending 2-3 times the money on something just down to looks.
There's the difference. Apple don't have any offerings with the same OS going for £300. PC's do.
Unless the ultrabooks can offer some unique and useful functionality (not just some skin or dock app sat on windows) then they're going to have to reduce the price.
No, because it's a desert.
If you've managed to slip cancelation clauses into your mortgage agreement, then go for it!
I remember when this was all fields...
and what about finding your phone? In the old days (bless them) your phone was handily attached to the wall in the hallway so you always know where it was.
I'm touting a product to apple at the moment, the ITether(tm). It attaches to the wall at the bottom of the stairs and the other end permanently attaches to the bottom of your IPhone, allowing you to combine the surety of the past with the poor reception of the future.
"4. No replaceable battery (although see above, this is a plus for some i.e. me)"
How can the lack of repaceable battery ever be a plus? You might as well wish to lose a foot because of the excellent selection of walking sticks out there.
and it will be.
Given the price point for the Fire and the fact it's using android means it's going to be jail broken before most people even see one in the flesh!
There's a lot of people in this thread that clearly haven't been in a proper bike shop. If the frame really does compare favourably with a full-carbon then £1000 is pretty reasonable.
You can get something much cheaper from Bike Hut, punched out of steel and screwed together by chimps, but if you want a good bike, you pays your money.
**Rides off on Epic Evo**
Possibly people like me. I like the kindle and I like the look of the fire. I won't be buying a kindle though, as I already have one and the new one doesn't do anything that the one I have doesn't, beyond look a little smaller.
