Re: very sad...:-(
You can step away from the keyboard now,
Mr Trump counterstrike
I had a Pre3, and fell in love with that thing. I've hated every single touch screen phone I've had since; although the Lumia 1020 was the least worse.
But, the 7th time that went in for repair, Vodafone replaced it - against my will - with a godawful Sony M4 Aqua. I hated that phone. I hated that phone more than any piece of tech I've ever used. So I sold it at CEX for £93 and put the money towards a Blackberry Classic. It really feels like I'm at home again. I have no Google services at all, I have all the apps I need (basically a browser and sat nav) and even the laughable camera isn't as catastrophically bad as the M4's.
I've got a lot of time for Blackberry. Let's hope the Priv can get a lot of people to fall back in love with them again, so they can fuck Android off. BB10 blows it out of the water. Using Android is too high a price for me just to have a keyboard
I need to update the software on my wristwatch but my wife's charging her cigarette.
The future is rubbish.
So going to make a cup of tea during the adverts is theft, is it?
Dealing with a site with drastic anti-adblock measures is as simple as deleting a bookmark.
Re: Earned me a free sandwich
Is there a downvote bot or something?
Anyway, which sandwich shop? I know what that lady's keyboard issue is and I'm very hungry
It's not funny.
When I got home from a night shift I was unable to play Elite Dangerous.
Have you ever arrived home from a night shift and not been able to play Elite Dangerous?
Please don't joke about this.
Anybody who flew an A-10 Warthog on the Dreamcast's Deadly Skies will know it's the best non-British aeroplane in the world
Avoid the M4
I can't update iPlayer due to the OS taking up 5GB of the phone's 8GB total. Sony have put 2GB of unremoveable crap on it as well. The M4 cannot be rooted.
The phone is crippled to a state of uselessness the moment you take it out of the box.
The shiny transparent plastic back can be scratched by placing it on a hard surface. A case is essential.
The camera is catastrophically bad.
Spies got spied.
It couldn't have happened to a nicer country.
Camera protrudes gracefully from the back
That sounds marvellous. The camera on the back of my Lumia 1020 protrudes from the back with aching vulgarity
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: I have seen some brain-dead comments in my time but this takes the biscuit.
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.
New In This Version
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?
-Tommy (not my real name)
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
