EBuyer have started to do this as well. I refuse to buy from them now.
It works on other devices
I downloaded it and got it working on my Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and TouchPad running Android. Having said that, the content is very limited.
But where does it get the initial time from when you put the battery in?
Of course, it really started with the lousy quality of MP3 many years ago. You can't compress files and expect to produce serious audio quality.
Mr Beats (or whatever he's called) is just tapping into a generation that has never experienced the "real thing".
What this article has not addressed is the influence of the IBM PC and its clones on the business world. In the early 80's I was a computer manager and was buying PC's like they were going out of fashion - all because of Lotus 1-2-3 and some home grown software written in Fortran.
I could not have done this on a Lync - we did look at this, the Amstrad, Apple etc - but MS-DOS was the way forward and IBM & Compaq were the beneficeries.
I remember buying my first 8088 based system for £1000 in 1986. Before that, I had a Compaq luggable from work.
Next big system was a 386 based system with an 80gb disk. Cost me £3000. But as I was earning quite a lot from making and selling software (anyone remember the original EasyEdit program), it was something I could afford.
After that, I just made my own from the trade shows until I got good deals from Compaq/HP (I work for them now).
Anyone remember the NEC 8088 lookalike which was 1.3 times as powerful? Mad a massive improvement in Lotus 1-2-3 speeds. Also, do you remember cracking the Lotus 1-2-3 so it didn't need the floppy disk in the drive before it would start up (for those with 10mb hard drives - a massive amount in those days).
AI keyboard. Has a numeric bar and good prediction (and you can toggle arrow keys). I don't understand anyone who uses a keyboard without the numbers at the top.
MX Player. Plays everything I can throw at it.
Kingsoft Office. The best (to me) free Office app around.
I don't think so
How do you speed up light when it's already at the maximum (according to Einstein).
I've done it.
Thanks for this report. I now know how to create folders. I wonder when Apple will upgrade their documents to match.
The 1 hour error when syncing to Outlook calender is still there. Doesn't seem a big bug to fix, but obviously not that important.
A landing site for aliens. Finally, proof that they really exist:)
And just how do you contact them?
I tried contacting them via their web site (I have an affected disk). It leads you to a registration page. So, I registered. I was then told I was not allowed to log in.
Pretty poor support if you ask me. Disk drives work 24 x 7 these days and so should the support organisation.
