Re: Punters will want to told one simple thing
Yup. It's just a really bad idea. I can't see anyone forking out a laptop's worth of money for nothing even close to the functionality. Even a smartphone's more use offline.
Not the same.
CRT = yer basic bogpaper
LCD = fancy bogpaper with Aloe Vera
If you want to pay all that extra money for a moistened arsehole, that's up to you. I'm fine with it as long as my finger doesn't got through.

Re: "it feels good to have produced my quota of pedantry so early in the day"
... such as pointing out the ugly "from" in my last comment.
"it feels good to have produced my quota of pedantry so early in the day"
+1 But don't let this stop you from producing more.
Re: I really, really love the galaxy note
My boss does - though he's a giant of a man and it's to scale. On everyone else I agree it's laughable.
It has to not suck on the desktop
MS do make decent hardware (even in my most penguinphile days I was never without an MS mouse) and a proof-of-concept for how they think a Windows 8 PC should be is a good idea.
However, this is no damned use for millions of developers and business users. It's imperative that Windows 8 doesn't suck on the desktop and I've seen no sign of this.

Re: Council in cahoots?
If she can convince council officials to make a complete arse of themselves to raise £21k for charity, she's clearly a genius.
"Is that how they do these? I thought they were prepared more centrally and just shipped out and served."
Possibly in cities. Possibly not somewhere as rural as Argyll.
Re: Oh wow
Their efforts to portray themselves as the victim are hilarious.
Re: For those who need reminding...
How about we change it to "weather where you are != global climate" then?

Re: Lets hang fire for a moment
While I agree on the every other rule, it won't stop me pointing and laughing.
Unless something radical's changed in the few weeks since I unfriended Facebook, they should start by making an app for existing smartphones that doesn't suck balls. Just my 2p.
Re: Microsoft to devs: Don't ruin Win 8....
[guffaw] Coming from Microsoft is is hilarious.
That's true, though having Amazon as your main competitor would knock any company's valuation.
The generation gap is an interesting one. Most people I tend to text use proper English - punctuation even. But after my niece taught my mum to text, so it took many years of moaning before she finally stopped using Teenage Gibberish (aka txtSpkLOL or whatever it's called).
A happy side effect is that having to use Proper English she sends me fewer texts.
Re: But what's it for?
... and I don't understand how all those buns and kittens add up to $1.5bn before anyone asks
Re: But what's it for?
Pictures of cakes and kittens as far as I can tell.
Good weight and the hapless fools can console themselves with chips. Or a nice soup.
Don't buy a laptop in a carpark. It can't be that difficult can it?

Of course you are correct. Mea cupla.
