Re: I don't get it

The files are encrypted so the file type is of no consequence to Mega.. why you and this article INSIST on this course of differential pricing is hugely irritating, misguided and not I think what the majority of customers want. ONLY I know how valuable a file is once encrypted, Im not going to reveal to you or anyone else offering me space therefore what I am storing. Drop it.. let it go.

Spotify trumpets move to US (and little else)

Paulds11
WTF?

Spotify? hmm

Spotify... for those who do not know where or how to access music for free from USENET based services or similar. Why would I pay Spotify to stream at £10 when the same price would give me access to a client I can use to download such files including FILM VIDEO AND SOFTWARE at Accelerated download rates?

Answer: I need to be SEEN doing the right thing OR I am a jobsworth OR somehow buying only the very BEST PREMIUM music (a CD because it is LOSSLESS format) suddenly realises he is missing out on auditioning all that music he has yet to discover? Please... use the radio or a service providing similar podcast type sessions.

I JUST DONT GET SPOTIFY. NOW after all that someone please tell me if I have missed something.

€2m iPhone bounty stolen

Paulds11
Stop

Maybe Apple will block our stolen handsets from UPGRADES now.

How exactly will they be rendered useless? they will still be connectible to ITunes, its not hard to create a false name account because they dont block stolen handsets connecting to Itunes do they? Else why have they not blocked 3 of my stolen handsets? Ill tell you why, because Apple make a fortune also from stolen handset replacements, that why they will not block handsets registered as stolen to ITunes. The only block I possibly know of is a IMEI number block for the phone. so they are effectively powerful Ipod Touch devices now. I dont think they thieves have thought this through though, they will be traced eventually, the qty is too much.

Someone correct me if Im wrong on this please, but in a way Im glad because now Apple are forced to think again about implementing some policy of totally blocking the handsets from updates based on IMEI number. If they did that, the market for stolen handsets and the need for others to steal them would be killed overnight.

Toshiba touts 15Mp image sensor

FAIL

aye?

wow, all that work in miniature photodiode and illumination, just to produce an even larger blurry picture? You cannot adequately improve the image quality without focus on the LENS. THE LENS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART TOSHIBA, Do you know something about optics futures that we dont? hmmm.. may be time to invest in a few miniature lens manufacturers in case..

Lenovo prices up dual-screen ThinkPad

Paulds11
Unhappy

WTF?

This is actually a great idea.. you can never have enough screens and as a Trader looking for a mobile solution (wel just in case :-) ) this is a great looking solution.. BUT cmon dudes this laptop is not worth that kind of money no way .. this is a landgrab at people with surplus cash not able to think about it. in addition the potential now for problems is huge with a moving laptop screen that may lock jam and go wrong, can you imagine the extra service calls and returns on this prodiuct? I think thats why the unit is priced so high because there wont be many sold but the support will be high. I can see laptops in future 17" with tripple screens now one extra each side... but they are going to have to engineer strong rails and pivot system so the laptop will not be very portable with the weight and so were back to that old chestnut... do you want a desktop replacement Laptop or an upgradable PC? because if you want portability.. this really isnt it

iPhone 3G unlocker released on schedule

Paulds11
Thumb Down

What for???

I have to ask.. I did crack my first Iphone before 3G for access to the apps.. but these days the app store has come a long way and the apps have gone through a process that at least ensures a modicum of operation in most cases. So let me ask.. am I missing something or has apple actually done a fairly good job of cutting this cracking hacking of the iPhone at the pass?

Why exactly would I now want to crack this device? to change icons? to load it with apps I couldnt find equivalent replacements for in the app store? will it wipe my bottom after a trip to the loo?

I think the whole premise of trying to hack my phone for the saving perhaps of what a few quid I would easily spend in one drinking session is a ridiculous argument, the only valid reason is simply to change network but lets face it.. you can go to Ebay and buy a n already unlocked NEW 3G from sellers now where the unit is sourced from countries that dont allow Network locking to specific manufacturers...

The whole premise is thus a geekish one..enjoyable perhaps but for me I value my time better and I dont want the hassle of having to constantly reboot and /or return the device back to factory settings ... its like watching paint dry. make your calls, play your games and get location based service and surf.... PS all this effort and yet no one has written an app to allow CUT N PASTE on the device.. now that would be time well spent

Thought-operated game controller delayed

Stop

doofus product

Of course it wont work , the kit required to diseminate between brain pinging and external interfearence will have to be so well tuned because even poor light switches would interfere with this technology let alone laptop screens and wizzing hard drives..cmon!! thats why similar experiments run in labs use Brain embedded probes in monkeys... weve a few more years yet for this to move out the gimmick phase

Muslim leader rejects Sony's LittleBigPlanet edit

Paulds11
Thumb Down

Oh cmon dude!

fear of repercussions is EXACTLY why they pulled it.. and by the way couldn't Muslims have chosen to buy or not to buy a Newspaper from the Netherlands which contained a cartoon that some found so offensive it caused some to take to the streets and burn effigies in the streets?

Sony did exceptionally well here to be so inclusively sensitive to those in the Muslim community overtly fanatical about their religion... oh man what a load of nonsense... imagine if we discover that God actually includes everyone regardless of your religion.. oh my gosh how exposed all this secularism would be... PPS even bacteria must have souls according to religion...
