I like it
This is the sort of thing I'll be looking for at upgrade time. I like my Desire but it's just too thirsty and, well, too big. When the Desire was being fixed I realised how much I missed having a small phone.
HTC seem keen on refreshing their handsets reguarly so with a year or so to run I'll be looking at the next revision.
What he says on 22nd
"My bad everyone. It turns out it was all a load of Bronze-age superstition that some of us all took a bit too seriously. Now how about we all stop blowing each other up over who's invisible friend is best and just - y'know - get on."
Well I can dream, can't I?
There's something in that book about it being easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. It doesn't stop these bastards lining their pockets.
"It won't have any effect on customer-facing roles,"
Thanks, Capita spokewonk, that makes it so much easier to swallow. The fact that it'll be server admins losing their jobs and the council's servers being administered from several timezones away.
Great move, Capita. Time to break out the bubbly, toot and hookers!
Not just you*
I'm a broad-minded chap but I find the whole business of hookers sordid and, well, sad.
* aka me too, I know
"Until Apple figures out how to get around that weakness..."
Surely "Until Apple figures out how to MAKE MONEY OUT OF that weakness, then you'll have this issue."
Sony aren't content with going to the toilet with their trousers still up just once are they?
Still, cheers for the warning. As my PS3's little but an iPlayer watcher now I'm in no rush to upgrade anyway. Good luck to those of you that use it for games!
Gnonsense if you ask me. Improved clock speeds are the friend of the dictactor and revolutionary alike.
Re: 3 cheers
Yeah. I loved Nathan Barley, too.
If I were offing some Vegas type and dumping him in a freshly-dug hole in the Nevada desert, the last thing I'd want is to arrive in a Googlecar.
You might *think* you'd wiped the car's history...
I agree with the overwhelming majority of your post. It's just the word "beginning" I object to.
"Just needs his ass spanked"
How refreshing to hear of an American capable of resolving something without getting the lawyers involved.
I've no idea what an engorged hampton is and will just have to (try not to) imagine until I can get off the work network to Google it. Meanwhile, please send a fresh keyboard to my office forthwith.
Roll up, roll up!
This is your chance to own next year's MySpace phone!
So not the Turing test...
Maybe the Ballmer test?
A long, long time ago
Working at a reseller, we got sent some Danish-localised PCs. I told our marketing manager they were the new EU-approved Pan-European keyboards. Next thing I know our company newsletter has an article about them!
Why I say that
It's true there are users who'll buy Apple no matter what and those that buy what works. I'd say they are the two extremes in this market. In between are the majority of folks who assume a tablet computer is called an "iPad", an MP3 player is called an "iPod" and assume other devices in those categories are knock-offs. Hence my saying they need to be better or cheaper than Apple (ideally both)
This is the future of shopping isn't it?
Soon buying a pair of kecks will be as much of a pain in the balls as buying a train ticket.
I'm sure it's fun if you like shopping, chase bargains and whatever. Those of us that value our free time a little more are going to end up getting fleeced.
The success of the iPad had made this an interesting market. For the majority of *Pad buyers (Apple-phobes aside), Android offerings need iPad-like performance for less or cost signifiantly less to have a chance. Expect a lot more vague claims about performance and read the reviews carefully.
Me? I'm just glad I'm not an early adopter!
Good progress boffins. Now how do we stick a polarisation gratings to a shark?
I suspect most of my neighbours would chip in to buy local plod a quieter heilcopter. Then maybe we'd get some sleep
Not a time for cynicism...
Cynicism no. Sketicism always!
Just what the fanbois would want. More location-based fun and games.
Compared to this lot, even the Fritzls look sane
I agree, but
"authorities should have free access to anything they want" is indeed the regime we now live under but these are anything but I'd not describe it as "liberal".
