I believe that's also the nand failing.
Then you REALLY loved HTC phones?
That's the biggest shame. Opera has never been the same.
Goodness me, that's a pocket breaker!
Then it's still supported due to XP embedded updates.
Why not, everything was to hand, although in a smaller portion (not enough spuds left).
Or any one of a number of very cheap handheld games, where you replace the screen, which in turn changes the game.
.. 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.
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!
That was my very first thought.
Transmission for Mac.
32Gb? Only 4GiB RAM? That's a pretty low requirement these days!
Aqua Mail is the best mail client in my opinion
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.
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.
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.
PAL terrestrial to digital a massive upgrade, really?
I find freeview to be horrific, encoding artifacts all over the shop.
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
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.
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.
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.
Apparently your time is spent worrying about how bollock-chillingly cold it is.
Do you live in Siberia? Buy some gloves.
Nah, it doesn't. The problem was clearly Norton. First place I'd start, to be honest.
Apple Reality Distortion Field.
Haha, oh Ive...
The difference is, you'll have to convince people to buy your iWatch tat every few years, whereas a well made mechanical timepiece will last for almost all purposes - indefinitely, and either a ridiculous time on a battery, or forever on kinetic or solar absorbing technology. When your iWatch runs out, people will be asking about it, but you'll only be able to show them a blank screen, as if you have some kind of lifeless electronic tumour on your arm, unless you hastily take it off and stuff it in your pocket in shame.
If you want a piece of tat that will be outdated in a year, iWatch is for you. If you want a watch that is well built, timeless, classic, and will tell you the time, faithfully, at a glance, forever, then you want a Swiss watch (or for the less well-heeled, a Casio digital watch, everyone has a soft spot for those!).
Yeah, £200 for a toy watch is silly. We're not talking Swiss made precision that will last on batteries forever, or have kinetic or light-absorbing charging, we're talking a bit of kit made in China.
They completely messed these up. 5.2" and 5" and higher cost?
Don't they get what made them such great products in the first place? Moto G was cheap and a decent size. Moto X was also a perfect size.
Tiny batteries, too. These devices make me glaze over.
Honestly, the only phone that catches my eye now is the Xperia Z3 Compact. Same dimensions x and y, little thinner than the Z1 Compact, but with a 4.6" screen instead of 4.3".
OMAP? I thought TI was out of the SoC game, and that was the excuse Google gave for not upgrading the Galaxy Nexus to KitKat...
.. Except not, because it can't clean under your sofa.
The difference between Vista and 7 can be rather large. 7 saves a LOT of RAM when running Aero, for one thing.
A lot of the time, dodgy plugs are obvious (insulation in the wrong places or lack of, pin dimensions shot, tiny gap around the edge of the plug to live and neutral, etc.), but dodgy cables, not so much, if they stick a small conductor inside and put thick insulation on it.
The resistance encountered by the load is of course that which causes the problem; with a smaller cable, substandard and ridiculous American voltage will heat a wire more because more current is required to provide the same power, as you say.
Copper is costly, so the Chinese will surely love to ship you some aluminium instead, or maybe some aluminium covered in something vaguely copper looking to fool you (this happens).
I agree that DRLs are a pretty pointless addition, and it encourages people only to check for light sources. If you can't see a giant chunk of metal flying at you, but you can now it has a few LEDs on it while in broad daylight, you probably need your eyes checked.
Never heard of this before now. Diaspora* must be happy, since now they're getting the most publicity ever.
I think the water craft is in bad taste itself, the name isn't going to make it worse. Approved.
That detail was always one of the worst wastes of money.
It's not the weekend without Alistair Dabbs' opinion pieces.
Get a copy of KeepAss, and store the database somewhere you can always access. Several places, even.
Anti-Semitism is NOT the opposite of Semitism.
Anti-Semitism was made up shorthand to describe Jew Hatred, which is still far more accurate.
Anti-Semitism is has almost nothing to do with hating Semitic peoples.
A Jew might be Semitic, but not all Semitics are Jews.
Yeah, pretty much.
.. If you want a proper coffee, you don't add any milk or any of that shit to at all.
What are you trying to taste, sweet syrup and mammary secretions, or coffee?
Most people don't want lemonade in their beer, so why add crap to coffee?
