Quite literally, this time.
Profanisaurus awaits you
Ah, a Cmoy in an Altoids tin.
Now, THAT'S prior art.
Hip-hop will have sampled them, don't worry about that.
Password Safe is good.
Win, Mac, App Store and Android too.
...thanks to Cobalt232 over on Crackberry.
Logged into my Google account, but not Play SERVICES, Location Services, etc.
Older version of Chrome, latest Google Maps logged in with Favorites etc.
In app purchases working etc etc.
Vanilla Android + hub on a Blackberry device, oh yes please.
Keyboard volume does not equal dial keypad volume.
Only way to mute dial keypad volume is to mute system volume.
@ Rampant Spaniel:
Friends of my father actually own a Model S. My old man - a lifelong Petrolhead who has owned some tasty metal - 2 and 4 wheels - in his time, having ridden in the S thinks it's "F******g stupendous". Stupid fast, amazing handling. The charging thing will happen.
Bring that back and I'll happily deactivate + in Apps.
Takes 30 seconds maximum. And one always has the "charger" to hand...
... none. None more black.
It's to do with the method.
I do think the reverse is true: Amazon have just eaten Apple's lunch here.
What is there to get excited about here?
This One has a poor camera for 2014 by all accounts.
My Desire HD has a poor camera, my just-finishing-contract One X has an only-just-good-enough camera.
No rush to upgrade on the first day. It's rooted, running CM and network unlocked so I'll pop a PAYG sim in there and sit on my hands until something interesting (Android, Nok 1020-esq camera) hits the market.
Are we there yet?
Unfortunately not: any invention/process/patent developed whilst in the employ of the M.O.D. remains the property of the M.O.D. - or at least it did when I was working for them during late 70s/early 80s.
I used the NFU to insure my Land Rover Defender for 6 years (IT worker, 15 years no claims and clean license for 22 years) until they increased my premium by 100% at renewal time.
Reason: everybody drives 4x4s these days...bye bye NFailU.
Go to chrome://plugins and disable the flash version that *isn't* \PepperFlash\pepflashplayer.dll
...for branded email accounts hosted on the Google backend I suspect.
"Dear Google user,
We’re getting rid of over 60 different privacy policies across Google and replacing them with one that’s a lot shorter and easier to read. Our new policy covers multiple products and features, reflecting our desire to create one beautifully simple and intuitive experience across Google." etc
I've only just realised whilst cutting and pasting into this that it was sent to my ntlworld address (and subsequently fetched into my GAFYD-hosted address).
Already does an excellent job generating either AAC lossy or ALAC lossless files.
Smart move by Apple though.
That is all.
In other news, XDA (2002), unlock code anyone..?
The deluded Monkeyman talked that fail up too.
“The biggest advantage we have over Android is that you don’t need to be a computer scientist to use a Windows Phone,” he said.
500,000 Android activations worldwide every day - that's a lot of computer scientists.
@mansell_Nigel is the real Nigel. The Lion tweets, finally.
That is all.
sent from my iPad
And the Dext (Uk's Cliq) too.
MotoROFL lied and stated in public (CEO @ trade fair, Facebook status update, Twitter feed etc) all handsets on 1.5 would receive an update to <gasp> 2.0, but then announced the Dext (but not the US Cliq iteration of the same handset funnily enough...) would be stuck on 1.5, sorry about that.
F**k Moto, I'd rather suck the shit out of my dog's arse for a £10 bet than ever buy a Moto product again.
Now THAT's a pimp plate.
As previously owned by Steve "motogp" Parrish a while back.
OTA updates for the Desire HD are carrier-dependent, here in the UK at least.
Unbranded DHDs worldwide got the update first.
It's a pretty useful option to have IMO, and not desperately painful to implement.
Just wondering what service google have in the pipeline that requires mandatory 2-factor auth?
Iran will not be allowed to continue developing its nuclear program under any circumstances.
Stuxnet + the assassination of the two nuclear scientists has set the program back years.
The alternative - military strike on the facilities right now - guarantees considerable loss of life right now and massive instability in the region right now.
Thought not, just like Google Apps Sync for Outlook then (which stores tasks in the local GASfO user's pst file).
Otherwise, it's an interesting idea.
Fine over Wifi (obviously).
Time to give Orange a call.
Years ago ntl were blocking compromised cable connections [PCs] and redirecting web page requests to an information and resource page.
I found this out on a Monday morning, after a friend had left his laptop plugged into my router overnight on the Saturday...
WiFi network => Airport Express => spdif => DAC of one's choice.
Control it either via VNC on your "lounge laptop" or via foo_httpcontrol foobar plugin/smartphone browser.
Streamed lossless over the network too.
...he authorises the release of an "update" to bias out the signal strength meter.
The anandtech piece explains that the meter does in fact offer a non-linear user experience in areas with patchy coverage, but the aerial design/reception issue does actually exist.
Therefore the "update" lives in that neat little crevice between fact and FUD, most impressive indeed.
Since the iPod Mk 1 was released, Apple have demonstrated a pretty impressive climb towards the summit of industrial design - until today.
This is not the beginning of the end for Apple's image, but certainly the end of the beginning.
Paris, because she knows how to hold one.
Actually, it does:
"Deleted messages match your search. View them or go to Bin to delete forever."
And there was I thinking that "Audiophiles" had the market cornered in magic crystal/green pen/snake oil gullibility.
I'd LOL long and hard if lives weren't at stake.
Wet table, warranty claim?
For making a Windows app (Airfoil) which allows me to ditch iTunes and stream FLAC over wifi from my Airport Extreme to 3* Airport Expresses - from Foobar2000...
No, built by Motorola.
I've had one of these for a couple of weeks - it's a really very nice bit of kit indeed.
"no discount on calls made over your femtocell, and data usage counts against your fair-use cap in the usual way"
At the LEAST, data routed through the femtocell should be exempt from the "f-u too" cap, upstream data backhaul isn't my problem.
XPS 1330 => 3rd motherboard (and 2nd HD) in 15 months here.
Oh dear, still missing the point I see...summary disconnections are not going to happen no matter what Mandy states.
The point is that people who do not share copyrighted material will not get prosecuted for sharing copyrighted material., and any ISP are going to provide some firm evidence before proceeding with anything.
Stating that they definitely will disconnect just like that is the usual FUD-tastic Freetard posturing, which is hardly bringing anything worthwhile to the debate.
Erm, I said *prosecuted*, not *accused witout even a court summons*.
That most subtle of distinctions lost on you then?
Which are about as plausible as:
"Well nurse, I was climbing into the bath you see, and didn't notice the bar of soap I must have slipped on - my kids must have left it there - and I really have no idea what that cucumber was doing floating in there either" lol.
I mean, has anybody ever been prosecuted for *not* sharing files?
And it's hardly likely that one is going to get nicked for catching up on the occasional missed episode of Holby City is it?
As if we didn't know that already duh.
Change your number in Settings, that'll fix it.
