Seems like fine english to me!
I also agree with your point.
I like the small form factor and the UI overlay that SE do, but I refuse to buy another SE phone after they basically decided that they would follow an almost Motorolla type line on updating the OS for their customers.
I have to say the concept of onboard FX isn't really that new, but I'm glad that Gibson are persevering with the robot tuners.
I wonder, though if you have to tune each string or can set up preset "one click" alternate tunings like the transperformance system?
Some of the other tech makes this a super concept for a session guitar for sure. I quite like the idea of an optical output.
I never thought I'd ever wonder if there are linux drivers for a guitar!
Agreed. This list is well weapon!
The latest "hoxton douchenozzle" style guide is out!
I can't believe that Apple scored higher than the Wasp T12 though...
It looks like a shoe.
I saw a Wind in the metal the other day and it does look better in real life. And it was black. Not sure about the fancy styling though, it really does remind me of something my nephew would wear for games practice.
but having somehwere to hold a travel cup or water bottle for my passengers and on occasion myself is a big benefit IMHO. Yes, hot drinks are daft in a car, but I'd prefer my passengers to have somewhere to put their drinks while they're riding with me.
Thanks el Reg!
There are ways of lending ebooks legally. I think el Reg did an article on it a while back in fact.
I have decided that eBooks are like MP3s really. Yes, an MP3 is inferior to a CD, but carrying a bunch of CDs around with me is bulky and annoying. With an MP3 player, there is a slight difference in quality (especially with earphones, external noise, etc), but it's much more convenient. I really am coming round to the idea of having lots and lots of books in a device that's not much bigger than a regular hardback.
I don't think it's an either/ or. You can have both. What would be nice though is -like some indie record lables do when you buy a vinyl version of an album- is a download code for an ebook when you buy the dead tree one.
I never saw the point
of ebook readers. I think it was mainly due to eyestrain with reading on a laptop, but after a little time spent with a friends Kindle, I have to say if there is a chance of a nice budget ebook reader (the Kindle is a bit pricey right now) coming out, I may well join the queue.
Of course, I still maintain that there are areas where only paper will do, like haynes manuals and similar (I shudder to think what would happen to the displays with grease and used oil all over them), but in the eternal battle between books I really want to read Vs space in my house, they could be a very good ally!
I like the concept, but for me the key to a super mini is its looks. The micra has always been iconic in the way it presented itself. The Mk1 was cool, the Mk2 looked like a bubble and was rather cheeky. Mk3 was less so, but still looked neat. This looks like a cross between a Tata and a reanult.
Mind you, the same can be said for the whole segment I guess. Just look at how inoriginal the new Ka is.
oops, I appear to have inhaled my camera.
It WILL happen to someone.
Off to wikipedia for me :-)
I was just going to say something very similar. I still have my old olympus microcassette recorder kicking around somewhere.
It always made for good stoned fun to record a lecture at slow speed (shocking quality, but doubled the length of the tape) and play it back at full speed. That's a key feature that isn't mentioned in any of these reviews :-)
yet another format to buy my music collection on.
Fantastic concept though!
I would love to see something actually more akin to the book. There was a lot to do with spirituality and the mechanics of belief in the book that was absent from the film.
Well actually, apart from "it's in the future, it has replicants and a bounty hunter", there was very, very little in common.
But I fear that this will be another in a long line of prequels that tarnish the overall legacy of the franchise -I'm looking at you Lucas!
produce a sharp, purposeful front-end
produce a sharp, purposeful front-end that encourages other drivers to move over as you approach.
Or maybe not because they'll assume you're a dick who thinks like this and not move just to piss you off.
Maybe other drivers wouldn't need to be intimidated out of the way if tools in SUVs realized that indicators and highway code are there for a reason.
Oh hell yes!
My dad still plays Terminator: Future Shock in DOSbox on his PC. I made the mistake of leaving the install media at his and never got it back.
Also, ROTT was such a kick ass game. I loved the super textures and the sounds.
If this was the US price INCLUDING sales taxes, it might be a bit poor, but I thought they usually didn't add them on to the RRP on press releases due to each state having different amounts of sales tax (I could be wrong though).
Then once we factor in that it's probably a lot lower to buy in the EU, but the price creeps back up when we add import taxes and other duties.
Seems roughly fair to me.
getting this as a shareware title with just the first bunch of floors. It was amazing back in the day, but I think it's one I'll leave alone for fear of tarnishing the memory.
I also seem to remember having to use the spacebar to open various hidden areas in the walls.
It's wonderful to see the progression from this game to Doom to DN3d to what we have today.
Any chance of reviewing "Midwinter"? It was a pretty awesome game back in the day and did the first person thing (allbeit skiing and shooting) before Wolfenstein.
I can't remember playing a better multi player game. UT was okay, but the tactics and everything else just made the original CS so much fun!
Hmm, I wonder if I can use this news to justify upgrades to my PC in anticip-------ation?
I think that when my contract is up I'll step the hell away from SE. Their updates are laughable and every time they announce something, a day or so later they say it was premature and that they need more time and then it vanishes.
What a game!
But yeah, I certainly agree that a lot of android gaming -last time i looked- tended to be based around a lot of variations on simple concepts. To the point where it was akin to asking "do I want a vertical scrolling shooter with a WW2 plane or with a spaceship"
Much as I hate to say it, my dads Nokia with its OVI store had some wicked games on it.
As for the multiple form factors/ resolutions/ RAM and whatnot, I guess if computer game manufacturers managed to deal with it, app writers can. At least the store and its not letting you see stuff you can't run avoids the whole thing of getting the game home and realizing you don't meet the GFX card specs or something.
I doubt the calculator bit would come in handy as the one in windows seems more functional, but having it as a numeric pad is brilliant! Lack of a number pad has always been something that annoyed the hell out of me with laptop keyboards.
Still producing the media though!
That's good. I love my MD recording walkman. It was quite advanced for its time with the stereo in accepting TRS jacks OR a digital optical lead and the compression was good enough to bung loads of CDs on there and still have decent quality.
Guess it's off to ebay to look for spare parts just in case...
