By far the worst thing to be developed is the latest version of the android "hotmail/outlook" app.
The UI designers need to be shot.
will it even receive a 3g signal through the new chassis?

Re: My Prediction
I didn't get to see that documentary. Does anybody know whether it is available anywhere online ?
I'm just at the point of buying new smartphone and was waiting to see what the S4 was going to deliver. My rather basic concern is, can this thing actually fit in your trouser pocket ?
Looking for freelancer
Can anybody recommend a website where I can match a project I have in mind to available people?
Rather than engage a company, i'd like a person to be dedicated to this for about 4 months.
I have found freelancer.com, but are there any others? One with more people based in the UK.
A while ago, some new icons were mooted. What happened to this idea?
I have no background in linux but have enjoyed setting up a home multimedia server using a Mint and an old laptop.
Defects in an apple product ? ! -- commence the iSlagathon !!
Are there any pics of the interior? That would be interesting to see
Are there any electrical sockets or switches in the cell ?
how do they actually plug the charger in
Re: What's the magic word?
That's a great story. I feel your pain.
I had a similar experience with OneTel who were trying to rectify a broadband fault. Stuck in an endless loop of incompetence.
It'll be a while until I save up the readies to visit something that far away !
Seems like a lot of IT training companies stand to make a fortune if extensive retraining is needed for corporate users.

Ok for me

Well done to the team and keep up the good work.
Great for schools that can't afford dreamweaver.
Well done mozilla.
good for consumers
with more entrants into this market it is bound to help drive innovation and choice.
If they are going to use voice recognition to target ads i'd like to see what they offer with my usual skype conversation
hello can you hear me?
you're breaking up
will all apps have the ribbon?
This is terrible news. How in the name of sanity is this possible. The RN should be screaming bloody murder from the rooftops.
We are seeing the beginnings of some major power shifts in the world and we are likely to get caught with our trousers down. Disputes surrounding the spratly islands might turn ugly and draw in a whole load of countries and kick of WW3
BTW has australia got any aircraft carriers?
Simon, can you make a summary table at the end? That way it is easier to compare all the printers strengths and weaknesses side by side. Which of these printers can be used with an iPad? Not a lot of detail in your reviews IMHO.
Will they come with a voice saying "me sucky sucky you ten dolla " ?
It's great that it's free. Whats in it for them?
My first computer
Spent many hours playing this:
custom cursors !
anyone remember the days when you had to type in a randomly selected word from the user guide? that didn't work either ..
Live chat widget
I've used the live chat widget on a few sites and generally get good results. Recently used the live chat on hostgator to resolve a technical issue and it was really good.
did anybody check
...his screen for a yellow post it note with the password written on it?
thats what everyone in my office does....
"experts have suggested that North Korea's entire military machine is fuelled by radishes" and consequently the lighting of matches has been prohibited inside all tents and enclosed areas.
One thing I've learned in the IT sector is to never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a guy, who got pooh-poohed, made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cos it turned out all along that the guy who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other guys who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs.
Around 6 months?
There is going to be some variance between males in how long this treatment is effective for. The worry is that you have your knackers zapped and then your swimmers actually reactivate after 5 months.
here we go again.
adobe = fail
biggest load of crap since adobe said "our flash plugin has no vulnerabilities".
secretaries typing up reports - on hand held device ? no
CAD people designing buildings - on hand held device ? no
web/graphic designers - on hand held device ? no
storemen updating stock records - on hand held device ? no
so, which products should i be buying and which should i be avoiding?
I agree. Adobe takes the prize for the biggest bloated software. Followed by HP who required me to download a 156MB printer driver for my new printer !
Adobe reader is epic fail. huge software bloat, open to all the above described vulnerabilities and people still can't copy and paste normally from this p.o.s.
a wise saying..
There is an old saying amongst teachers:
"quality kids have quality parents"
explains it all.
It's going to happen
Try it yourself
I did my skills tests and passed them all first time. The actual tests were significantly easier than the practice tests. I have since left school teaching and now do adult education.
