really hope this isn't an April Fools, that'll be really disapointing
...thumbs down for someone green-lighting not just a 2nd but a 3rd film too :(
also was awesome on the Bloodhound Gang's track Boom!
Flow like a harpoon daily and nightly
who knew that the line "check out the hook while my dj revolves it....." would be so prophetic
i shall be looking forward to seeing him "rock a mic like a vandal" and "light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle"
> when people talk about competitors’ stores, they call them 'app stores'.
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
so what you're saying is...
...the iPhone4's so-called antenna problem is actually helping to save my hips from falling apart?
the Orange shop on Cheapside has only 7 units
but then, there's no one queuing outside yet, so perhaps 7 is all they'll need
Only there's no setting sun in space
nor credits nor horses for that matter
"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
i want one for xmas kthxbye!
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.
is this why
is this why i've had no 3G connection at all to O2 yesterday and today? and even seem to be having trouble getting an Edge connection.
Apple spokeswoman tells The Register
Now that's the real story here, forget this Safari nonesense.
How much did El Reg pay Steve?
Or what dirt has Cade got on Miss Muller that he's used to bribe her with???
The remarkable thing...
"The remarkable thing is that it works and it's very fast"
The remarkable thing is that they didn't do it like this the first time, and so drove us all to install an ad blocker to try and avoid the lag
It's was pure extortion. These should be criminal proceedings, not just claims for recovering costs.
Better advice for their customers would be "if you wish to browse the web, get a better phone with either Android or iOS"
it's a Psion Series7!!!!
god i loved my Series5
but that was because it would fit in my jacket pocket and was very easy to type and navigate both while holding in the hands and lying on a table.
I'm pretty sure the Series7 didn't work because it was too big to work well as a hand held unit, just not portable enough.
and i wonder if that will be the same problem with this Asus. Just too big to be a portable tablet, so why not just get a netbook instead, and have the easy of a full OS and a mouse pointer?
in fact, 49% were PC users
Actually, apparently the "buyers were split almost evenly between Mac and PC users (51%/49%)"
5 years after end of life?
So "end of life" doesn't actually mean end of life? If a product is EOL'd, doesn't that mean that it's no longer supported?
Besides, if you're _that_ worried that the websites you visit are going to be maliciously crafted to pwn your iPhone then you should pony up and upgrade to a current model like the rest of the world has.
i'll wait for the NGP
the fact that it uses the same faceplate as the recently leaked one makes no odds. you'd be able to fit that faceplate on an iphone4 style back or an iphone3/ipodTouch type back.
I remember the incredulity displayed on the Reg comment pages when there was no cut/paste on the iPhone.
Found your problem
"on the pc"
re: Charging money for tools
valid point, but it seems where Apple goes, the others follow, so for how long with the dev tools for other systems remain free?
@kain preacher "never seen a product called windows"
Really? I've got loads at home. I use it to let outside light in so that I don't have to keep the lights on all the time during the day.
i'm not sure i want to watch Rastamouse in 3D
Personally I've been waiting until I get Killzone3 before getting a Move controller.
There aren't any Kinect games that i'm interested in playing yet.
So that's one more sale to Sony coming along when March payday rolls around.
Rosetta killed so you need to find new equivalents
surely you've had plenty of time to find a replacement in the YEARS since they provided Rosetta.
So seems this rumour is false too
I guess that's the trouble with reporting on rumour stories, they are, afterall, just rumours.
Seems the "delays" aren't going to happen and everything is on course.
Does anyone else get the feeling that perhaps these analysts were just trying to move the stock market prices for themselves?
It can't be delayed when there is no release date.
You see what you've gone and done now?
The article is inaccurate and wrong and as a result you've raised the blood pressures of all those 'droidtards above.
You're killing your readship y'know, slowly by slowly, day by day.
(Actually, I've no problem with that - the world would be a nicer place with less bile-spitting Android fanatics and more happy Apple enthusiasts, but this method is surely going to take too long to bear appreciable results)
For what it's worth, not that anyone will read this, SaaS apps aren't included in the 30% subscription tax
does not apply to SaaS apps
why is a split spacebar a problem though?
you're still going to hit it with either your left thumb or your right, and it makes no difference which half of the spacebar that you hit, does it? it still triggers the spacebar keystroke.
it's purely asthetics as you'll end up resting one thumb on the split between them i guess
i liked DH4
Admittedly, it did seem a bit daft and over the top at times the first time i saw it, but the second and third times i've seen it i really enjoyed it.
I also enjoyed the A-Team and Wolverine though - i wasn't expecting amazing pieces of cinema from them, and what i got was an enjoyable film.
So I shall expect no more from DH5 and see how it turns out.
Re: Sequals? Are you sure?
"They did make two excellent Alien films though, but luckily stopped before ruining the series"
so you haven't seen Alien 4 (which did ruin the series), or AVP or AVP2 then?
friend of mine had an old 1st gen ipod touch for playing games on the train to work and when looking for a phone got the Galaxy S as he figured he could play games on that and only carry one device
he still uses the old ipod touch to play games each day, because even on the old machine, there are more games worth playing on the ipod touch than there are available on the android platform. he's been patiently waiting for the marketplace to improve, but so far he's still having to carry around two devices.
when his contract is up on the Galaxy S, he says he's getting an iphone next.
@Ian Wellock - Re: Alas, not so
"but I think few end-users will see the choice of 'click here' versus 'go to your web browser and type this address in, and then go through hoops' as being competitive"
No, end-users won't consider the competitive issue at all, we just want our content. We'll choose the easiest path to get it. If it's a single button click inside the app, that's perfect and a lot easier than mucking about on some website.
But also - if the only way to get the content is to go to your website and go through hoops, then we'll go get the content from another provider using their app that does allow for single click access, because that's a lot easier than the going through hoops.
Apple care more about the end users than they do about the publishers and that's just horrific isn't it?
if there is an iPhone nano, it's not going to be as capable as the main iPhone.
and i'm not sure that you'd be able to play games on a 2/3 size screen, let alone a half-size model. the screen can shrink and the pixel density can increase, but your fingers are still the same size and will get in the way even more.
Angry Birds will be impossible to play on a smaller screen, because you won't be able to get the same accuracy.
So i'd see the iPhone nano being vastly reduced in capability of running apps - and for that, perhaps it would work with a cloud element - but it sounds to me like the cloud rumour is mixed up with the one about MobileMe allowing cloud access back to our iTunes collections.
"If this is bringing you flashbacks of another technology company's anti-competitive practices, well, maybe it should." followed by "This isn't the same as what Apple is doing"
if it isn't the same, why should it give us flashbacks?
i think perhaps you've bought into Sony's propaganda on this issue.
The Sony App was blocked because it _only_ allowed users to purchase from outside the Apple system. It was rejected because it didn't allow the users the choice of purchasing ebooks in-app or from outside. So it's Sony that was being closed here, but forcing users to buy their books from where they wanted them to.
to quote Apple spokesperson: “We are now requiring that if an app offers customers the ability to purchase books outside of the app, that the same option is also available to customers from within the app with in-app purchase.”
we're all gonna die from lunar triffids!!!
re: The Italian Job
Your reality, ma'am, is lies and balderdash and I'm delighted to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever.
it's an awesome movie, endlessly entertaining, and thankfully missing a holywood feel-good ending. and it's a damn sight better than bloody Kes (although, admittedly, got to give some thanks to Kes for it's influence on the League of Gentlemen sketch with Dr Chinnery... but i digress...).
can I airplay it from my iPad to my AppleTV and so watch it on my telly?
how does the app store threaten the web?
i thought the app store just supplies applications?
there's more than just apps on the web isn't there?
or will you be releasing an El Reg app in the near future??
only one device then?
so is it a one off thing? will their network remember the phone number - MAC connection, or will you have to re-register each time?
cos if it remembers the connection, then it's only possible to use mobiles? i can't decide sometimes to connect on the phone (when in a department store perhaps) and at other times to connect with my tablet (when sat down in starbucks or a supermarket cafe)?
I was talking to someone about that and they pointed out that the cost involved in the manufacturing process to include a rear camera is probably negligable, especially when the economies of scale kick in and you order enough cameras for all your ipads and iphones being made this year.
Even if no one ever uses it, it'll still shut up half the commentards on El Reg who would bemoan the absense of a rear-facing camera if given the chance.
two paramecia enter, one paramecia leaves
Listen all! This is the truth of it. Fighting leads to killing, and killing gets to warring. And that was damn near the death of us all. Look at us now! Busted up, and everyone talking about hard rain! But we've learned, by the dust of them all... Stanford learned. Now, when men get to fighting, it happens here! And it finishes here! Two paramecia enter, one paramecia leaves...
can we have the Wierd Al song playing as the soundtrack?
i tried to enable it, but it refered me to O2 'modem' page that tells me i need to add the tethering bolt-on to enable it.
so while it's awesome, it'll also be expensive at £7.50 per month on top of my monthly contract.
isn't Three offering free tethering?
