although, ideally they'd be on a bluetooth unit to remove the wire, and I wonder then would there be additional power drain?
seems i better buy a lottery ticket this weekend then!!
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
such a shame
the original game was so much fun and different when it came out
shame to see the franchise has become just another typical uninnovative franchise :(
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.
not the only one
but perhaps one of the few that didn't expect RIM to see what a stupid idea that was and come up with what their customers want and not what they thought they would want.
the title bit
i suspect he's one of the "i won't write a title" malcontents that seem to form the majority of El Reg commentators
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
isn't this the 3rd or 4th year that there have been rumours of a low-priced iPhone?
he lives in Norfork :)
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.
[slow claps for Mirco$oft]
Probably because the types who buy Android kit have no real idea about how RAM is used on tablet devices and wonder why it doesn't have 16gb like their desktop pc has.
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.
