Re: Is the MTP file transfer fixed?
I need Linux for everything. I'm not going to install an OS I need to constantly babysit just to put MP3s on my phone.
Is the MTP file transfer fixed?
With the 800 and my 1020 both are seen by Linux, both allow transfer of data onto the device, but the data isn't seen by the phone. The only way to get data from my laptop to my Lumia(s) so they can see it is by using Feem, a WP type of Airdroid app. Slow and useless for very large files.

Store the keystrokes of every user on a PC, save them unencrypted locally, and also have them sent as plain text to a third party server God knows where.
I used that a lot on my HP 200LX. Worked brilliantly with 1MB RAM.
Autocarrot is the bane of my fucking life
They're aren't enough iPhone 6 articles.
One doesn't wear tight jeans to board meetings. When the CEO sees my Passport next to my glass of mineral water he's going to KNOW I haven't wasted half of the morning trying to beat my current high score of 108 on Flappy Bird. He'd also be wrong.
It's a win-win.
Get used to it. It's the future.
The reason jobs like this are given to people who are so incompetent, is because people who are competent have no interest in doing jobs like this.
I want one of these so badly I just did a sex wee.
And that's that.
Oh autocarrot, how I hate you.
We're they insured?

It's 2015 next year; we demand our hoverboards.
Re: Not entirely free
I'm not bothered about that - everyone has a dummy gmail account they use for signing to websites, don't they?

Back in 1987 or so there was a public domain program for the CBM Amiga which would attempt to learn whichever language you used to talk with it. It was a completely blank slate, and every single word association/pattern repetition and grammar rule was learnt from the user's input.
It was an interesting exercise, albeit a simple one. The main thing I learnt, though, was that the machine AI and I both shared an appreciation for Kylie Minogue
I've seen this argument before. Some complete bastards walk the streets, but we won't be banning streets
I'm getting a Nexus 7 in about 35 minutes.
The timing couldn't be any better. Marvellous.

This is Cortana's second job. Her first was manning the customer service phones at British Gas
Re: Smart phones where *you* decide which Apps are on them.
True, that. My Lumia 1020 will even let me uninstall 'Nokia Camera'.
So I did. I don't need three camera apps on one phone.
Weeeeell not quite, because a shirt isn't a combination of trousers and a hat. What you've invented there, sir, Apple was granted a patent for last Thursday (fabric accoutrement to cover or partially cover some or all of the torso including or not including part or all of one or both arms patent no. 847494937) and now you owe them a million pounds
"Bridging the gap between a laptop and a tablet."
What's the point? They're two different things. It's like bridging the gap between your trousers and a hat.

Ask the Sega guy.
Re: Grub problems.
I thought that, until I checked. sudo autoremove doesn't get rid of old kernels - only you're trusted to do that.
When I did check one day, I had a couple of gigabytes of the buggers lying about.

Airdroid works. All you need is a browser on your PC, it doesn't matter what OS you're using
Good grief. If your battery is dying just get a replacement phone under warranty, this isn't North Korea
Re: Apple don't lose money on the unsold ones anyway right?
Option Apple) Carrier agrees to buy x units (or else carrier isn't supplied with iStock and carrier goes bust). iStock is now carrier's responsibility. No returns.
Re: 8GB is pretty useless
It's only 5GB after iOS has strolled in and put its feet up. 8GB wasn't even generous when I bought my Pre3 4 years ago
All the snidey comments aside:
This is just as exciting as the time in the mid 80s when the Lada Riva was outselling the FSO Polonez 3 to 1
I'm stuck on the bridge of The Heart Of Gold. AGAIN.
We all operate within a legal framework. The police operate within a legal framework. Criminals operate within a legal framework.
Asserting that your organisation operates within a legal framework means literally nothing. If they haven't broken any laws they'd say something like
We haven't broken any laws.
Don't hold your breath waiting for that one.
They don't pay any so their revenues are completely irrelevant

Re: Powerbook 170
Oh. Oh yeah. I'll get my coat
and go shopping for a floppy drive
I've got one of those in a cupboard. No operating systen though, I don't know where that went, it was given to me in that state.
The System 7 diskette images are free to download from Apple but as far as I know the .BINs can only be put on a floppy by a Mac with a floppy drive - rare as hens' teeth these days.
Save billions on marketing

This is just a stop-gap until the next-gen Super Mario Cicada 3301
It's certainly very clever.
It's a very effective way of temporarily getting intelligent people off of 4chan
