really? because it seemed to me the commenter above was pro-ubuntu, making him a penguin-botherer, not an iFanboi.
obviously, i defer to your greater familiarity with such things, but by it's very name, i'd assumed a circle jerk involved more than one person doing the same thing, no?
but then again, i forgot, you apple bashers don't ever read anything before you troll do you?
oh my bleeding heart
"This is of no benefit to the reseller..."
But for the end users, it's fantastic.
So instead of paying £128 for my OS X upgrade (because this is a full release, not the mostly transparent upgrade that Snow Leopard was), I'm going to be paying about 20 quid.
I'm sorry, but for a hundred quid, I can't quite feel sorry for the retailers.
Surely they are able to tell what type of iPlayer installation is playing the content? Whether it is on a tv, or pc or mobile device.
So these figures could easily be the growth in usage, not just installation.
I drive up there once a month or so, I had no idea I was putting myself in such potential danger!
Then again, there's been times looking at all the aimless shoppers in the Highcross shopping mall, it's quite likely the zombie invasion has already happened!!
simple solution to multiple native apps on various platforms
Build it in Appcelerator Titanium.
you can't disable the feature if on a phone
you can't surf the desktop version of the fb website from your phone, it'll automatically redirect you to the m.facebook.com website.
and that slimmed down site doesn't contain the opt-out for the suggestion. it, typically for facebook, sucks
the only solution, i guess, is to un-tag myself from any and all pictures so that they do not have any source images to identify me by
not apple fanboyism
even the most zealotous of us fanboys also view this article with contempt. If it was a comment post, i'd say it was from a penguin bothering troll.
The iCloud isn't going to take all of our data from our laptops and desktop machines and thus remove the need for hard disks.
At best, it's going to facilitate easy movement of data from the hard disks attached to my iMac, across to the disk in my MacBook and the flash drives in my iPad and iPhone.
Apple aren't providing me we 4TB of space to hold all my music, apps, books, pictures, movies and tv shows. But for holding onto those media files for long term (only 1000 photos are only held online for 30 days, other data files aren't catered for), I'm going to have to do it outside of the cloud, and for that I'll still need external hard drives.
wii on u
think i'll stick with playing proper games on the playstation instead of the gimmicky kids games that are alway on nintendo.
don't like the huge controller either, i bet it's heavier than it looks.
that's such a brilliant idea, I'm going to start doing it on my way home tonight
I remember back in the day, we used to have loads of friends round, crowded around the original playstation, playing 4 player games (or even up to 8 player Micromachines by sharing the controllers between 2). good times had by all!
this "advancement" in techology is only going to let 2 people play the game at once. and anyone else in the room isn't going to be able to see a thing that's isn't at best horrible blurred, and at worst a composite of two entirely different scenes overlaid on each other.
it's a step back in multiplayer enjoyment, because half the enjoyment is for those in the room not currently playing, but waiting for their turn to do better.
but then, it's a moot point isn't it? there's feck all decent multiplayer games out at the moment that allow 2 or more players on a single machine. they're all geared at multiplayer over the internet
oh the irony...
...of reading this article via the m.theregister.co.uk portal...
i suspect the research is backwards
all this proves is that someone who is a fan of something, and probably thinks about it much more than normal, recognises and appreciates the image of the thing they like
for relgious types, it's their imagry and icons. for mac fanatics, it's the shiny shiny boxes and dock icons.
for soccer fans it's the sight of 11 men getting sweaty together and for world of warcraft players it's a can of mountain dew
exactly how many...
...Bothan's died to bring us this news?
miss my psion s3 :(
used my psion series 3 everyday when i had it - awesome machine and as the article says, the only machine to ever adequately replace the filofax.
replaced it eventually with a series 5
so strange that its only now with smartphones that we're getting back to being close to the functionality that these little machines provided us with back in the 90s
yes, but that's good isn't it?
i thought it was a refreshing change to see a film that used the 3D when it was required and useful, not using every minute to try and find a reason to throw objects at the camera. I'd say because of it's lack of overuse, it's probably the 3D film I've enjoyed the most so far.
the Dave special was a big hit
in as far as it was a big hit for Dave the channel.
Apparently it drew in record numbers of viewers for the channel. Probably not close to the numbers that watched the show in BBC3 at it's peak, but for Dave it did well. And that translates directly into record numbers of viewers of the adverts that were showing in those slots, which allows Dave to charge more from the advertisers, and so fund the new series.
Lister: What d'ya think of Betty?
Cat: Betty Rubble? Well, I would go with Betty... but I'd be thinking of Wilma.
Lister: This is crazy. Why are we talking about going to bed with Wilma Flintstone?
Cat: You're right. We're nuts. This is an insane conversation.
Lister: She'll never leave Fred, and we know it.
well spin my nipplenuts and send me to Alaska!!
You bunch of depressing smegheads! Have some optimism for once! You're acting like someone just told you there's no silicon heaven!
This is quite possibly the best news I've heard since... since they announced the Back To Earth special.
Which, admittedly, wasn't as good as everyone hoped, but i enjoyed it. It was a lot better than the last series of the show, even if it didn't hit the highs of the all time classic episodes.
Still, whatever they produce, it'll be a HUGE amount better than the dross that was Hyperdrive and anything else sci-fi that's been on telly recently.
So have some faith you lot! It'll be great! It says so in Space Corps Directive 34124
a ribbon to hang themselves with
Ribbon will ensure that no one ever upgrades to W8 and will instead increase the market share for Linux, OS X, GoogleOS and whatever else is out there that is at all useable.

On the rare occasion that i tidy up my flat, i get out the hoover.
It's a dyson, but I use it to do the hoovering.
apart from outside the US
and apart from on an iPhone (no iOS player app yet, web player doesn't work on iOS Safari)
and apart from your work pc which is likely behind sufficient firewalls and site blocking to prevent you getting connected to the Cloud Drive
So I can use it at home then. Where I currently have all my mp3s on my home computer and can play them instantly wihtout having to wait for stream-lag or for non-peak-periods when my ISP isn't throttling my bandwidth.
so yeah, fantastic idea Amazon

"without attitude control keeping its solar panels facing the Sun"
attitude control? these spacecraft can get agressive if left unsupervised? :)
one step behind
so it'll always be able to run Android apps that are one version behind the latest android release?
you'll have to wait for RIM to release an update to their app player?
so, why not just get a fully android tablet and not have any restrictions or delays
also, the article seems to suggest you can only buy the android apps through the blackberry store? so they're only going to allow certain apps to be available?
what's with all the can-love?
there seems to have been a never-ending string of Headphone reviews.
when will we get a decent earphone reviews? i don't want to walk around like a throwback to the 70s with big heavy cans on my head, i want some nice lightweight in-ear-phones that give reasonable sound and also the y shape lead that goes around the back of the neck (which seemed to be the only style available in the 90s) and not the Y style that seems to have come back into fashion despite it's prevelance for getting caught in thinks and pulling the 'phones sharply out of my ears
hopefully more Sneakers than Hackers?
I'm hoping it'll be more like Sneakers - I can see Christian Slater in the Robert Redford role, just a bit more extreme and amusing.
Trouble is, Slater has bad luck with tv shows, even the ones I like (like My Own Worst Enemy) get cancelled, so I'm worried about this one.

Now that's the real story here, forget this Safari nonesense.
