Samsung unveils first Android handset

Thumb Up

Aha!

Given that the device pictured has no keyboard, can we assume it will have the magical 1.5 "cupcake" version?

Busted!

Halfway through the order, they tore down the store!

http://www.tesco.com/entertainment/product.aspx?R=818488

"This Tesco.Com store is currently unavailable due to essential maintenance."

Worryingly there is a sneaky "<%@ Language=VBScript %>" tag at the top of the page. Oh well, I guess we can't all use real programming languages!

TLA
Stop

Dead Horse?

Julian, have you seen the sales figures for the PS2 against the 360?

In Nov 2006 the 360 sold 511,000 units. in the same month the PS2 sold 663,000! And the was with Gears of War boosting the sales! (of the 360)

Graphics aren't everything, the original XBOX was for all "tense and purpose [sic]" a "dead console" was because it was terrible.

Here is my reference , where is yours?

Nuclear power != Nuclear bomb

Nuclear power is ready, when will governments tell the unlearned masses to shut up and listen to thoes who know what they are talking about.

No blood for oil + no climate impact.

1 tonne of Nuclear waste <<< billions of tonnes of carbon*

It's not perfect, but why go to the trouble of sending up hundreds of rockets (where's the fuel coming from?) when we can do this *now*

* "<<<" = "is much less dangerous, in all respects, than"

Please ignore the start-up stealing the OS from Microsoft

TLA

Why, Asus, Why...

Why did you put Crossfire on that board? Where will my 8800s go now?

The solution is clear, I must fabricate some kind of SLI-Crossfire adapter!

Developers to Mr Jobs: tear down this wall!

TLA

Folks...

We're all forgetting what market apple is in:

HARDWARE.

They make their money selling the iPhone, they couldn't care less about what you do with it after.

Remember how stubborn Apple is, despite every iBook/Powerbook/Macbook/MacBook Pro user CRYING OUT for an option to stop the laptops suspending automatically when you close the lid, there is none.

But do apple care? Of course not, you've bought their product, as far as they are concerned, job done.

-Comment posted from a MacBook running a 3rd party app to stop it suspending when I don't want it to!

EnGenius SI-680H Wi-Fi VoIP phone

TLA

Been there, done that...

...got the phone.

The F1000G has been around for at least 3 years, AND it has a plain ringtone!

A step backwards, if you ask me.

A Worried god...

...Is scarcely a god at all.

I hope for your sake, ChrisB, that you are joking.

Surely your god created the bacteria that were killing the larvae? And why just save just this species, why not the Dodo? And don't give me the default "God works in mysterious ways" answer, that is an admission of ignorance.

I'm not questioning your religious beliefs, I'm questioning your reasoning.

Windows recovery loophole lets hackers in

TLA

Good use for Vista DVD

Just one good use? there are thousands!

For use as a coaster,

Making indoor fireworks in a microwave,

Cutting into shurikens and attacking (L)users...

The list is endless!

P.S.

Not an informed comment? Fair enough, but this wasn't an informed article!

Google glitch loses user data

TLA

I was worried, but....

my Google home page seems to be back now, although in a subtly different style, indicating perhaps that they have reverted back to an older version of their engine?
