Will it sell?
But the slightly cheaper Vita is struggling, so how will this manage>
Done that before, to get to & from work, used a code reader.
Actually a full reset while driving, so I could get more than one gear.
Gearbox in limp mode, reset, got a couple more gears and a few new ones,
Yes I found a new gear in my gear box lock up second.
Just done a test
"What is that icon?"
"I don't know?"
"I think it looks like a combine."
"Oh yes, what does it do?"
"It is for printing."
"Then why do they use a combine harvester?"
What you do is simple.
They name a footballist and you reply
"Haven't heard of them, who do they drive for and what formual?"
Re: Can't wait...
I know someone who is.
Got pictures of my twins at one of their shows which their relative.
I was being supportive
Why the downvote?
Why is reasearch 1000mph wheels not important?
Why is making a car survive a sonic boom hitting its underside not important?
Thrust SSC was damaged by sonic booms
They actually have some of the most talented developers in their fields in the PS division.
They seem to be quite good with their BSD forks.
BT is not too bad
Used them due to issues with previous ISP which was swallowed up and screwed my ISDN, BT mainly as quickest to change me from ISDN to ASDL.
Stayed with them simply due to effort in changing, Threatened to move over Phorm.
Infinity is a good package.
No one is likely to buy them.
BTW I am a Murdoch hater as well.
Funny isn't it - hence my W4500
Re: Vita vs Smartphone
Pair of company phones here, one Symbian and the replacement Android. OK Still using the N8 at the moment.
1) They are work phones
2) Screens are small
3) Why do I want another phone just for games, when I have work ones to call on?
4) My little portable game console, has twin analogue sticks and great games.
Now my favourite single player games are the Uncharted series, I want an Uncharted game - I have one.
Currently playing a PSP game on it.
I also like Killzone multiplayer - what is out in September a portable Killzone multiplayer.
Re: ability to discern pictures more quickly than words
Pictures vs text been having a look at various software here in the office.
Well what does a frying pan mean?
Or a yellow nose?
Or a combine harvester?
Various old bits of card in different colours?
Hover over them and......
What does a frying pan have to to with searches?
What does a yellow nose have to do with reminders?
Or a combine with printing?
Re: I'm not sure what the point it.
Well when you have such design issues as wheel strength, avoiding damage to the car from the sonic boom. There is definately some good points to look at.
Drop the cheap crap
Concentrate on the decent stuff.
Top end Sony stuff is still good, their cheap crap is embarrasing.
When I bought mine there was well too many models, found 5 46" TVs
Cheap sub HD, S and P ranges, overpriced crap.
W and X series - they look nice, how much for an X series!!??!!
W series - hmm that is marketed at me, full HD, great picture quality, looks nice, not too expensive, but quite a bit more than the cheap TVs.
I saw all 4 playing same material and it was crap crap excellent excellent.
So as Pioneer plasmas (only plasma TV I like) was too expensive off to look at Sony W series TVs.
Two models !!!!!!!!!
Now they could have cut that range down to cheap overpriced crap (S), more expensive but better value enthusiast (W), and rich person (X).
Yes I own a W series LCD and the picture is still excellent, got a free 5 year guarantee as well.
Vita vs Smartphone
Hmm well my phone is from work and I don;t want to buy a phone just to play games on it.
Oh and can I have an Uncharted game please?
FInds copy of Golden Abyss.
How about a FPS?
I _WILL_ be buying Killzone Mercenary, but Unit 13 is fun.
We can't eat grass
But cows and sheep do
So grasslands can only feed us using livestock
Don't knock the sprout
I actually like them - with a nice roast meal
<---- A sprout with go written on it
Well my downloads are almost all TV, often from BBC stuff I forgot to record, or not on Iplayer.
But then there are series which never made the UK.
There is ITV deliberately not showing episodes (Pushing Daisies).
There is pay TV poaching the series off the FTA channels. In fact my first ever torrent was the Farscape final mini series which the BBC were outbid for, as I have the entire series on DVD I was not waiting for that, so USTV rip downloaded. No one lost out as I have the DVD of it a few months later on day of release.
Oh then I wanted to watch a film in HD, no BluRay available so I downloaded the HD-DVD rip and played it off my BluRay players HDD, I just wish I had my burner then - that would have been much funnier. (I have the burner as I have HDV as well).
BTW my media includes a few hundred DVDs, about 60 BluRays, about 50 Beta tapes, and I have never pirated a game, I have downloaded no CD patches but not pirated.
Re: Two consoles
But it would two different wouldn't it?
Sorry they are on PSN
Similar to a friends PSN name
I think it is obvious
Techies stop Windows phoning home with things like this so our usage is ignored.
Re: BWM / Vauxhall
So why is my 12 year old Vauxhall more reliable than a workmates 9 year old BMW?
Why is my 12 Y/O Vauxhall roomier than a 5 series?
Why does it look nicer than a Bangle era BMW?
Why did Police buy so many of them?
Re: Instead of
It's the crank sensor. OK it usually is!
I remember him a little Alien who worked for QBS software and was drawn by the brother of the B in QBS, the same person who drew Percy the Parkkeeper.
The fall out of Win 8
We have just got one at work, and it is driving our support chap mad, he cannot find anything, TIKFAM just gets in the way, classic shell will be going on as soon as it can connect to our server. Our last 4 Windows 7 PCs were set up in minutes in comparison.
As an aside, I converted a home PC to dual boot with Linux, now I do not know the OS I am just trying it out, and I am sure it was easier to set up for a Windows user. My next test is Wine. After that we are going to try it at work.
So when you get Windows users hating it and wanting to migrate things are bad.
We have moved on
Last 4 work mobiles, Nokia, last couple, Symbian
Latest HTC Android
How about a logo removal option which removes those moronic pieces of crap from the screen
Re: Proud owner of the Beats Pro
Some of us don't like wrong wheel drive
I feel a bit sick.
Who wants to w**k to Somon Cowell!
Re: @Stephen Roper I don't have a problem with mp3
I find the type of music tends to expose compression.
My kit is mid range, I use a DVD player as a CD player, it also plays SACD and DVD-Audio. Through a decent mid range AV receiver and a set of HiFi speakers.
I also have a Minidisc recorder.
CD isn't perfect, DVD-A and SACD, do sound better, I can just tell the difference between MD and CD.
I have some MP3 CDs in the car, 128 dreadful, 192 OK, haven't tried higher in the car.
But I find the worse the source the more is lost, you can't really hear it but feel it.
Re: All women short lists - Craigness
Where I live the opposition party has gone down this route, she seems a bit useless, council manager, being really hyped up by her party.
Currently got a chap whose father was the MP in the 70s and is also the only political person to door to door in the last 5 years.
Re: Till operators
I would not say menial, possibly boring, but a good source of income for students and without insulting them people whose partner is the major wage earner (eg part time mums on tills.)
My wife always gets chatting with them, till staff appreciate it.
And they hate the till messages more than us!
No problem for me
I don't touch the stuff. If I ever drink anything with Buweiser on the label the word Budvar is alongside and brewed in České Budějovice.
All women short lists
Stupid idea - you just get the worst. Look at the so called Blair babes.
Make it open to best PERSON.
Just to annoy the inadequates who like these short lists, how come a woman became Prime Minister without them, and women chosen using them have been invariably useless.
I am very in favour of EQUAL opportunities as the best person not the best man / woman / alien / teapot ect
Re: Automatic tills?
Horrible things, tried a few.
I was recommended to use one to save queueing.
Take your item and wave it, doesn't register or you have to put it in a certain spot, next item ignored because I hadn't done something else. Look stupid piece of junk I put item in front of scanner then the next, anything else I am not interested in.
I just abandoned and queued for a human - it was quicker.
Just get stuffed automatic till, much quicker to use a checkout person, their scanners just beep and let them get on with it. You can talk to them if you want.
Argos - would not let me order an item - had to go to till so why bother.
B&Q rejected my card, normal till took it.
I make a point now of NOT using them, if I want to buy something without human interaction I will buy on line
Re: Dedicated servers
Is there ?
I don't think so, all the games I have played are Peer to Peer, and some are big.
There isn't the excitement
One thing MS are missing is the excitement, with the Sony reveal there has been this under current until we saw the demo and still it is there.
We are not seeing it with the Nextbox, we should be.
Re: Exactly WHO do used game sales benefit?
You buy a Ford, it needs parts, you get them from Ford, they get more money from you.
You buy a MP game, it takes up server space, the previous owner also takes up server space, this costs the game publisher.
Re: Easy to do
Your list is missing a powerful handheld with a few really good games. The Vita, I see you have the PSP.
OK I am playing PSP games on mine, but Unit13 is fun, as is UC GA.
We have a few here
Megadrive, SNES, Dreamcast, PS2, Wiiiiiiiii, PS3, Gameboy, DS x 2, PSP, Vita x 3.
Interesting that no-one is bothered about the Wiii-U
Re: The "two cars, one red one blue" thing
<- red car
Red car Toyota GT86
Blue car Subaru BRZ
Same car different colours.
Was it reasonably priced?
That is whay I always think of.
Re: No more computers in MY Car please! Time to buy 1960's circa Autos!
I don't mind some, as long as I have a code reader.
But I would not like a non computer controlled auto - not so easy for lock up.
However CANBUS is evil
Re: Rev counter
Ever jumped off a bike and into a car, put it this way it wasn''t until I drove one with a rev counter I found that I was revving high mileage 1300cc Astras to 8000rpm. It was still accelerating and was not revving too hard - for a biker.
When I got to cars I had an old push rod lumped thing 6000rpm red line, but when fitted with the correct cam and springs safe to about 7000rpm (sports model was known for this red line lower than maximum power). So I would happily take my ancient 1600cc hatch to 6500rpm, jumped into the same size engine Sierra, err why was the red line so low, I would have red lined it so easily?
Rev counters are usefull when driving vehicles with substantially lower rev bands than your own vehicle.
Re: A real driver's car...
Thinking about it I think the most basic I have had of any use was pair of clocks, blue light for main beam and orange light for indicator, nothing else. Apart from a moped which had nothing but a speedo, so don't count that.
Re: A real driver's car...
Hmm bulb warning systems are nice.
I did like the gear indicator on a motorbike.
Less though is better. But rev counter essential.
Re: British cars
Following are British designed & built
Jaguar Land Rover
not sure on Rolls Royce
not sure on Bentley
Most F1 teams
Following made here
Re: Cops? Ha! I had an entire CAR stolen
I have heard of this before (someone saw their other car on the road and started to follow it) and yes I would have recovered my own car.
In the above one they were threatened with arrest if they followed it.
Why have I heard of the place?
Had to look it up.
Was the home of Novell, when we had real X86 servers
lack of interest
My wife had her bank account broken in to, made up first name not her real one, managed to clean it out with traceable details.
She got her money back VERY QUICKLY but complete lack of interest from Police.
