Re: bark of Saint Peter
Lads I'm pretty sure he said ark rather than bark or else there is rather more being given away in today's announcement than planned.
Psion’s working codename for the project was Brian.
Easy solution - fall back to the Techie mainstay of Monty Python quotes and project "Naughty Boy" would have been born. Surely a much bighter future would have resulted!
The reg typo of the year!!
> According to the company, there will be no set date for release, since individual malware vendors will be tweaking the software for their own handsets when they are ready.
Despite most peoples general distain for them I don't think anyone thinks -
handset vendor == malware vendor
like X-ing the Y
with due respect to the moderatrix - like policing the reg comments
Apple iOS encrypts SD cards
??? Really ??? - I can't think of an iOS device that supports SD cards, never mind encrypts them ????
But, but, but - I am called Paddy and I am Irish....
The post is required, and must contain letters.
Do they really think this is going to be the biggest inaccuracy by the time it's finished?
If Merv/Jim think this is going to be the biggest inaccuracy by the time the movie hits the big screen I suggest the bring a beer along to the cinema to cry into.....
Perhap the best solution is to get a black actor to play Guy, because then it would, of course, be ok for him to have a dog called N*gger...
The love us because of the sh*tty weather, just like MS
To quote MS:
Ninety-five percent of the time the temperature outdoors happens to be the temperature that computer servers happen to love, so we only have to turn on the heat or the air conditioning 5 percent of the time
Low corporate taxes help, of course - anyway we need the money to pay back the EU, IMF, UK gov, etc......
In Ireland at least they already are.....
I wondered through my local PC World at the weekend and was surprised to see a kindle out with the tablet PCs - I just assumed they'd being selling them for a while.....

I suspect any switch flicking around Yahoo might not be to switch anything on...

The potential to be magical
It's ver 1.0 - Apple need to get it out into the hands of consumers and build the market. I don't think it's magical yet, but it has potential.
My own opinion is that the iPad can become the home "computer" of choice - it looks the part, this is critical to make it into people's living rooms. It's easy to use, pick up do what you need and put down again. BUT I think it's final future is as a partner to Apple TV - Apple TV has a sizeable HD and the iTunes connections to do the heavy lifting of holding your media library, downloading the latest shows as they become available. The iPad is a window onto that library, letting you browse, view and copy specific content onto it to consume outside the home.
Now if this comes to pass Apple will have displaced Sky, UPC, etc as well as a bunch of other incumbents and "own" your living room - they manage this any they'll be laughing! (all the way to the bank)
I wonder how the table would appear if you did the same type of analysis, but expressed the price (at launch) as a percentage of the average industrial wage - i.e. how affordable where the products when they first went on sale...
I _think_ this is it...
I went to the Intel SSD page, then onto a particular dive, under support there is a link which (finally) leads to the PDF above, which says:
"Intel warrants to the purchaser of the Product (defi ned herein as the Intel® X25-E, X25-M, and X18-M SATA Solid-State Drives) in its original sealed packaging (“Original Purchaser”) and to the purchaser of a computer system built by an Original Purchaser containing the Product (“Original System Customer”) as follows:"
My mapping accuracy actually improved with OS3.0
I suspect they changed the way the trianglation worked - my mapping accuracy has improved no end since the update when I'm indoors. (outdoors was never an issue)
I wonder has the update exposed some issues with the way operators have configured their base stations? (So it was less accurate across the board before the update, now it has the potential to be more accurate, but badly configured base stations can throw it out to a greater degree?)
Some problems last night, but...
I ran into some of these problems last night with my upgrade. Two things seems to help:
1. Disconnecting my iPhone, openning iTunes and signing into my account.
2. Then plug in the iPhone, when it still failed (this happened a few times) clicking between the iTunes store and My iPhone inside iTunes forced it to retry and it eventually worked.
It seems that the iPhone must be re-activated after the upgrade and it's this step that seems to keep timing out.
