Well, I say misleading, when I mean just plain Wrong:
"...first mobe at the age of SEVEN - Ofcom"
"The new survey comes from mobilephonechecker.co.uk, ...with 7.5 years being the average."
"But when Ofcom put the question to 1,717 parents, as part of a more comprehensive study, it put the age of receiving one's first handset at about 10 years"
SNAP! will do scratch on an ipad
SNAP! A version of Scratch that does actually work on an iPad. I've not used it enough to see if the dumbing down is a few steps too far, the first thing is that there's not much in terms of sprite support, but the flowcharts seem to work.
Me too, fibre activated this afternoon on plusnet. O2 even offered me free broadband for a year to stay - I'm assuming they just wanted as many numbers on the books as possible. A lucky escape!
Forget the EU, what about the states, £8 for a single megabyte really is taking the Michael.
First thing I'm going to have to do when visiting later this year is get some sort of PAYG SIM, no idea where from or what I'm looking for though!
Does this use the built in radio, or (more likely) streaming? If streaming, how much data does it use?
"Rent SD titles for $3 (£2.60) or view in HD for $4 (£1.90)."
Something wrong with the currency conversion there maybe?
Plus, I bought a blu ray for a gift for a friend from Tesco, and automatically got the Ultraviolet version - except that you can't gift those! Now he only has the Blu Ray, and I have a digital copy of a movie I'm not interested in. Fail.
No Search button?
The no search button was the biggest deal-breaker for me. Loads of apps rely on having one, and others make it really difficult to search without one
I got mine at the weekend - Phones4U and it came with an 8GB class 4 card for the extra storage
More than happy with it so far, but not sure where this DLNA out is. I've managed to stream files from my windows netbook, but I can't stream files from the phone to it, or to my Sony BDP-S370, which also streams from the netbook.
I also don't get the complaint about screen size - if you want bigger, then that's what the Incredible S is for, surely?
Not enough information
Why do mayn of the mentions not have prices, e.g. the Toshiba Portégé R700? It'd be a lot better if the bottom grey section was in a proper table including price, speed and memory alongside the rating.
Just a thought
...but what were the figures for the same point in HDTV's history? Or maybe DVD?
Prices will come down, and popularity will increase. I doubt it will achieve anything like the mass appeal that HDTV has because it really is just a gimmick, but aren't we still firmly in early-adopter territory anyway?
No connection - West Midlands
Not noticed any problems earlier than this morning, but not been able to connect at all since 9-ish. Glad to see it's not just me!
"are able to run independent compatible applications" - er, wouldn't that also include the multitude of phones able to run Java apps, which would be most of the ones released over the last 4 years or more?
And Dan10, you want a Desire. Simply claiming Android is inferior because there is more choice is a poor argument.
The only reason you can tell at a glance which phone is best with Apple, is because they only have one current phone, and one old phone they're selling off cheaply.
No popcorn hour? It got rave reviews when released.
To Alan 6
True that a h264 encoded file might be able to do that, but that means encoding in real-time on the camera, before it can be sent to the computer.
That might be vaiable in a few years, but for the moment that would be one heck of an expensive webcam.
Does this mean I can now get the exclusive Teflon white Hero on Orange? ;-)
Given windows 7 over here will generally need a complete reformat, what would anyone get out of a 'free healthcheck' from PCWorld?
I'm all for it - soon after HD was out, Sky made the SKY+ functionality free rather than £10 per month. If having this new funky 3D system means making the HD sub free, then I'll happily lag a bit behind the bleeding edge and just have HD!
With that attitude...
"You don't need to change the aspect of your TV, just don't look at the black bars!"
With that type of attitude we'd have never got 16:9 TV's to become mainstream, so the fact that some content is in 16:9 and some still in 4:3 isn't reason enough to hold this back.
At 52inches this is a set really designed for movies, and there's plenty of them that come in 21:9 ratio, leaving black bars on normal HDTV's.
I'm not saying I'm going to get one - I certainly haven't got £4500 to spare, but that's not to say the black bars on 21:9 movies don't annoy - and I'm sure they annoy some others a lot more than they do me.
