Re: For extra horror, look up DVHS/DTheater
No horror, the D-Theater titles I've seen look.. great. Really great.
In fact, there are still a handful of films that, if you want a copy in HD, are still only available on D-Theater.
A real shame
A sweet idea.
A real shame
That's a real shame to hear. Only 55.
A great loss for his family and everyone who reads El Reg.
Which we took from the French, as opposed to the Dutch-sourced cookie.
Now that's a fix of beauty.
I'm hoping on Vulkan, for one. DX12 is just another lock-in.
There's really no reason to...
... Because someone on the internet has worked their arse off to give HD quality versions of the films as they originally were shown.
Look for "Harmy's Despecialized" editions.
I use another provider that was attacked: Runbox, and similarly had no issues. Chuffed.
You just need a simple, free and zero performance impact modded hosts file.
Re: And your point is?
What? A car key fob most certainly has a battery in it.
I achieved 3 mpg over the combined figure for my car on a very long drive across Europe. Some cars really do hit their targets.
I suppose your day job isn't Windows admin, which is of course fine (or indeed merciful!), but to change permissions like that, you'd have to take ownership first, then allow full control.
Re: My car is still faster...
I actually disagree on this one, I think the range with the top end model is good enough, because they have superchargers all over that are free to use. It's a nice price to 'refuel'.
Most people probably don't drive that far in one stretch without a break very often. For those that do, they can drive a diesel as they do now.
Just extra options on the market. Shame the price is high, but it is a nice bit of kit if you have the cash.
Yeah, I use keepass, and don't use any browser plugins. I only load it when I need a password from it.
Lastpass always seemed like a dodgy idea, to me. Any centralisation.
Re: It has the same problem as every other hybrid / pure electric vehicle
Same as the normal one, so that's nothing to do with the electric gubbins.
Also, are you really saying the Tesla Model S is ugly? I don'think so.
Re: Total waste of time
Crikey, you've no appreciation for quality. The bitrate of streaming media is terrible in comparison.
The point is, I guess, that someone could be in possession of a lot of promotional codes for games, and keep activating their accounts using them. $5 isn't exactly a lot.
I believe that's also the nand failing.
Then you REALLY loved HTC phones?
Re: Um, what?
That's the biggest shame. Opera has never been the same.
Goodness me, that's a pocket breaker!
Re: XP vs 2003
Then it's still supported due to XP embedded updates.
Just cooking this up right now..
Why not, everything was to hand, although in a smaller portion (not enough spuds left).
Looks like a POP Station.
Or any one of a number of very cheap handheld games, where you replace the screen, which in turn changes the game.
People who wanted tablets, bought them..
.. They have no good reason to replace them. It's not exactly rocket science. Of course the market growth would slow.
Most El Reg commentards figured exactly that would happen even before they were popular, in the face of ridiculous suggestions that tablets would replace desktops.
Turns out, being a market analyst doesn't mean a lot.
Re: El Reg Redesign - leave your comment here.
Clearly designed for a tablet held in portrait with such a narrow design persisting: my main complaint about most sites today. They've forgotten we all are forced into wider screens...
Ah yes, all those pesky lorries moving goods and quite literally making our modern lifestyle possible.
Better instantly stop them being used on an ill conceived whim!
Re: unsigned int, anybody?
That was my very first thought.
Transmission for Mac.
Re: Call me lazy
32Gb? Only 4GiB RAM? That's a pretty low requirement these days!
Aqua Mail is the best mail client in my opinion
Re: I dont get it.
Totally depends where you live. In Norway, where Model S is a top seller, most of the power is Hydro.
So, maybe stop spouting the same old rubbish.
Also, a 691 hp model S? Sign me up.
Re: All day battery life is the game changer
Yeah, this is why I imported a Droid RAZR MAXX HD, and which is why I'll still keep it until the battery no longer performs.
More 4.5~4.7" phones with >12Wh batteries, please.
Re: Sony Z3 Compact
Yeah, Z3 Compact is the flagship phone right now of any brand, the Z3 is just a pocket filler.
Except they have high resale value. All Macs seem to keep some value long after they're obsolete. Check ebay.
They'll lose a lot from that initial retail, though, because honestly those dustbins are overpriced.
Google never turns up results with pirated material
Blank vhs tapes sold purely to record home movies
Blank cassettes were only for your dictation machine
DVRs only 'time shift'
Blah blah blah
People have been money from copyright infringement for ages, in legit businesses
Fry is becoming less of a national treasure, and more of a national joke. This is sad.
Re: On being slowly boiled alive with video standards
PAL terrestrial to digital a massive upgrade, really?
I find freeview to be horrific, encoding artifacts all over the shop.
Re: Start Menu
What are you talking about? Most of the article was about the start menu in 9.
Windows does have sym links, unless I'm missing the point here
Was that so hard, Microsoft?
This is definitely a good 'start', so colour me more interested in Windows 9 than 8 by far. Start and applications in windows? What a thing!
Not to mention the fact that Stardock was ahead of the game as they offered both of these, but oh well.
Hopefully they've fixed the other problems with 8, like lack of ClearType, missing Windows Experience Index, COMPLETELY screwed backup system, missing Shadow Copy UI, etc.
The problems with 8 are legion, but at least they are listening.. maybe?
I guess you didn't watch the video.
This is bloody fascinating, thanks.
All I ever remember of these guys is that they stood outside their shop, hassling you like a religious preacher.
But that was probably ages ago, I haven't really wandered around large town centres for years.
Re: NFC woes to come
Maybe in the US this type of thing is a novelty, but in the UK we already have contactless cards.
Why potentially introduce security issues by having your payment details readily available on your phone, when you can just pull out a much smaller plastic card and tap it instead?
NFC payments work in terms of cards, but I have 0% interest in it for my phone.
Re: I really don't know why it's so complicated.
Well, of course. I'm on the same team, buy your own phone, get a cheap deal that suits you. It's the only way to fly.
Then again I also bought my current and previous phones used off ebay, because I got more for my money.
Re: Like anything depends on your personal use cases, or lack of them.
Apparently your time is spent worrying about how bollock-chillingly cold it is.
Do you live in Siberia? Buy some gloves.
"It costs a lot of pain before you work out it was Norton"
Nah, it doesn't. The problem was clearly Norton. First place I'd start, to be honest.
