Like a cut down synology..
...that does this and way more for a price point of less than a couple of hundred quid to start
Works a treat
Have had this installed on my HTC one since it was in beta, showed a massive improvement.
Full day + of using the phone, thought impossible before

IRIS was brilliant
IRIS was far better than the shite e-passport machines which forever have queues of people stood around them looking aimlessly at the ceiling instead of looking-at-the-bloody-camera.
It was quicker and didnt even need to get your passport out of your pocket, which made it a bit 'cool' - thats probably the government cancelled it, it was just too efficient.
I'm amazed that the Dutch e-passport machines (that have never seen me before) can process me far quicker than the e-passport pants that we've now implemented.
Have a drone balloon...
Just had a bit of a eureka moment... or possible a silly idea..
The balloon is the risk here because once it pops it may cover everything, but the reason it pops is because it'll reach max pressure from the altitude.. so....
Use two balloons, one as the main load bearer (ie filled to the correct stated capacity to provide lift for the entire rig) and have another balloon of the same standard but only fill with say 50% of the gas. Tie the rig a significant distance below both balloons but tie the small balloon above the larger of the two - with a safe distance between the two.
Then when the main balloon bursts first the entire LOHAN structure will start to descend but... and heres the key thing.. the burst main balloon stays well clear of the main rig as itll be kept above the rig by the smaller balloon (make sure the secondary balloon can take the weight of the burst primary).
Then we can use one of the many burst balloon scenario detections.
How many others read GigaWatts and immediately thought of Back to the Future?!
The Doc would've sorted it by now!
Here is the link if you want it
Samsung are starting to piss me off
They announced the 8.9 months ago and still dont have a release date.
For all the pain that comes along with the apple product launches at least when the launch they actually launch the thing.. to * gasp* sell
Dear Samsung, please remove thumb from arse and start selling some stuff..
The tablet I've been waiting for, hopefully will be the missing link from the weighty ipad to the short on features (admittedly by design) kindle
Erm but it states its not made by Anonymous
On their page
"this idea is a presstorm idea and only takes the name anon because of the Anonymity of the social network. "
Pretty clear to me
Please drop the Trick Cyclists bullshit
In one article its mildly clever, but in every single article that refers to psychiatrists it now only ever says 'trick cyclists'.
Drop the bullshit, please
IPv6 is surely better for them
As the last few octets (yes I know this isnt the defact name yet, but you know what I mean) of the IPv6 address is from the MAC address of the device, surely it will make it easier for operators to know what device is where.
Also it'll likely help them link mobile contracts with mobiles, tablet contracts with tablets
Not necessarily great for the users (based on the way we get screwed either way) but from a billing perspective it must better for the ops
Not showing on the Sky EPG yet
Wonder if it needs an update?
i left mozy because of this exact point
I re-backed up 80GB 3 times with them before I gave up. they claim this doesn't Re upload but it still takes just as long.
move to humyo, uk based, a Tad more expensive, but you can use their tool which does full syncing, and one way syncing (stops this issue) and allows direct access to the data with your own client as well
some people just fuck off
Re :/ why apple only?
You're going to see a lot more of this because of toss pot jobbs wanting everything written specifically for the iphone.
If this was written natively for the iphone its an entire rewrite to port to android et al, exactly what bad ol steve wants.
I was interested in going back to an iphone with the 4g (currently on nexus one - which is v good), but with this closed garden/wall/everything approach apple are moving to they are going to be too much of an apple only place.
What sort of a twat spends £1,200 in a session of throw the hoop
.. and they were a doctor?
Not much more to say on that!
Errrr. theres flash on the site
Check out the route map:
I'm fed up with on every machine I use I'm constantly bombarded to update what is only a pdf reader, why does something so mundane have so many holes that it needs almost constant security updates.
I'd love to not have to use it at all
I'm waiting to press the buy button
I've been waiting for ages for a decent android phone to come along, and my iphone 3g is feeling long in the tooth.
I'm all for google until they truly turn evil, at which point I'll have to do a 'Lily' and cease to be online, cause they will know too much by then!
What a wanky product name
Pretty much sums it up!
Can someone show me where the bra is in that pic, im lost
Fail - Look at the site on Chrome - browser is not compatible
What a bell end
or lack of!
Ok I read the story earlier, but bugger me - thats some pretty shit hot stats it can kick out if you feed it the right info
Where are the RMT?
If this was in blighty that fat wanker Bob Crow would have the tube on strike for a week for the terrible treatment of one of his dahling boys.
At bloody last...
Finally some more Android handsets coming, will get HTC to up their game
I'm about to leave o2 (and my iphone) because of o2's bloody awful network.
Now another decent handset will get ruined by their god awful 3g network.
o2 is simply shite
Fed up with visual voicemail just not working, and crap signal.
I've already started the process to cancel.
@ Eddie Edwards
"Math fail" = English fail, its 'Maths fail'.
None of this US of A spelling on here please!
....will people leave broadcasters along, soon we will have to return to re-runs of 70s sit coms because everything else is just 'too' edgy.
Its all bollocks.
$80 is piss cheap for a set of in ear dual driver ear phones
Compare them to any other dual driver sets and you will find this is at least half market price
Sod wireless, go homeplug
Wireless is cramped, slow and doesnt go through walls terribly well.
Homeplug is the future, simple, scalable and every device (bar laptops/pmp's which will keep wirelesS) needs a plug.
Paris:/ because even she knows wireless is crap!
Get a Mac Mini
Cheaper (Dell has shite spec) and great interface (front row)
Why wont people give up on wireless - its shite
The amount of bandwidth the public can use is tiny and its stuffed full of stuff - how fast/slow is your wireless network at home?
Homeplug is brilliant and means that all devices plugged into the 240v mains are on the same network, with no interference from neighbours.
As all tv's/dvd's/media centres need to be plugged in its the ideal interface
Im imaging having your ps3 plugged into the wall, then you plug your tv, and both devices show up on your home network - thats how home networking should (and almost does) work
Is DARPA actually The Stig?
Reason I ask is that every DARPA based story gets a great random babbling intro - exactly like The Stig on top gear!
Clearly if the user has vista and has uac turned on then it wont get installed anyway because vista is so secure.
Oh, sorry, maybe not!
Mines 'in progress'
I was on the site @ 8.20 and had to try 5 times, but managed to get an order confirmation...now heres waiting to see what/if anything arrives on friday!
Trends for Websites...hmm
Interesting they will let you see microsoft, apple et all...but it wont let you look at google.com stats, very interesting!
Doesnt this look like Phorm would almost be perfect to monitor this type of activity?
You cant say 'I WAS a Visa user at xx'
I had vista for 3 months, ended up ebaying my PC and now have a Mac, lovely!
No I'm not a fanboi, but it is just better!
Good luck to them
I spend Easter in New Delhi and from seeing what a lot of people have (some of the worst poverty in the world) good bloody luck to them being able to kick start their economy and join the rest of the 'first' world.
The death of the PMP?
Who would ever buy a PMP when you can pick one of these babies up, screen is just as big and you can do a hell of a lot more than just watch movies!
Archos et al are dead!
@ John Miles
Yes it is an issue hence on optical networks you will find ILA (In line amplifiers) and ILR (In line regenerators) every 70kms or so. These are swapped dependant on the overall distance covered between the main bits of kit at either end.
The ILA's just bump up the signal and the ILR's reshape the signal from a more wavy curve to be a more square binary light pulse.
Interestingly the speeds keep increasing for the end cards year on year however the ILA's and ILR's keep handling the increased speed as they are relatively non-complicated bits of kit. Remember that those lovely fibres across the pond also need these things, so you will find them under the sea every 70ks or so and they have been doing this for quite a few years.
@ What *current* do they output
Isnt it more 'Watt' current do they output....coat being put on as we speak!
Interestingly when I was about 14 I made one of these from a disposable camera, just take some handy cable from either side of the capacitor and you've got a lovely stun-gun. If I remember right if the discharge wires were too close together they would also give a nice skin burn as well!
I think it should be friendly persona, just someone had a few too many shandys before writing the ad!
for my mac mini, that look great!
I believe I can sum up most peoples opinion on this...
....'you fcking what'?!
What docile bunch of thick bastards come up with this crap?
It takes long enough to get through airport checks when simple things like 'shoes' aren't allowed to go unchecked (did you read about the shoe bomber plot, or even seen a photo of that idiot?), how they hell are they going to cope when they have to get a multimeter out to measure how much oomph is in each device?
I'm all for safer skies and don't want to fall foul of some terror plot, or dodgy Sony battery but seriously, we need to weigh up the likelihood of these things actually being an issue.
