Ignore the title of my previous comment. No idea how that got there; I'll turn my phone off and on again.

I know reality TV
Windows 10 is going nowhere near my 1020. Oh no. Uh-uh.
Until I get bored on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

So that'll be two blondes, two brunettes, a token Asian man, two body builders, two extremely camp, shrieking men, an ageing American model and a blind Scotsman with one arm.
Don't you dare call Up a Disney film. Disney make shoddy plastic toys and talking electronic Disney Princess cash registers. Up is, was, and always will be, a Pixar film.
And the chances of the apps I have on Windows Phone 8.1 working on Windows 10 are...?
Keeping WP 8.1 on my 1020. I'm not stupid.
Can you see Lagarde or Lord Rothschild going through customs checks before getting on a private jet?
Re: It's just not worth it
Oh yeah, it has a much bigger screen. Silly me for forgetting how irritating bigger screens are. At least I have no trouble lifting 2.4 kilo, I'm still quite young
It's just not worth it
I just bought Acer's own Aspire E51 - 8GB RAM, 1TB HD, three USB 3.0 ports, DVD-RW and 7 hour battery life for £289. Only twenty quid more than their top-spec Chromebook. That's a mighty drop in spec just for posing value in Costa.
India's the target market
But India wants Java on its featurephones. This doesn't support Java apps. Useless.
Re: Square the circle
How about a normal hardware keyboard-ed phone, with a slide-out screen for when you want to watch pr0n?
This is from the same people who thought Windows RT was a good idea.
They'll probably introduce jumping for coins next.
Someone else will gladly step up to the plate.
We step up to the crease. While we're discussing semantics in language, please remember that we play cricket, not rounders.
It’s also important to take pity on those who use more vulnerable systems
No it isn't.
Particularly if you share files with them on a regular basis, for the risk of inadvertently becoming a carrier is high.
No it isn't.
The risk of me or any other Linux user reading this inadvertently adding an .exe attachment to an outgoing email is nil.

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?
Another solution in search of a problem.
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

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
