Microsoft tries to trademark 'Mod' in the US

MaFt

Makes sense to me...

'TM' in the UK *is* a registered Trademark. The 'R' is non-existent here.

As for 'Mod' I think it makes sense. When they weren't allowed to use Metro anymore they always referred to it as their 'Modern' looking interface - Mod is obviously short for Modern. "Microsoft Office Mod" sounds better spoken than "Microsfot Office Modern"

Re: Dear TomTom

What, you mean like the Sony XNV and the Renault Carminat?

Hmm, I think I'll order an iPad Mini on Amazon ... Oh no I won't

MaFt

I hate this kind of comparison chart... Why not add:

Number of Tablet-specific Apps available: Fire: 5,000(?) iPad: 300,000+

Can use 3G data: Fire NO iPad: YES

Sync with iTunes: Fire: NO iPad: YES

Use iCloud to backup and sync: Fire: NO iPad: YES

Has an apple on the back: Fire: NO iPad: YES

Sadly, people will think these comparison charts are the *only* difference between the 2 devices... :/

Google sneaks in back door, slips YouTube onto iPhone 5

FAIL

Not really 'slipping in' is it?

Now come on, it's not really being slipped in through the back door is it? That implies they shouldn't be there and have somehow managed to bypass Apple's security... Apple discussed it with Google in advance so it's not like they just heard a rumour they were being dropped in iOS6 either. And Apple had to approve the app to get into the AppStore so, again, not really sneaking in...

Yes, I may be a pedant, but the articles written in such a way to make it seem as though Google have pulled one over Apple's eyes.

BBC iPlayer iPad app out this week

Thumb Up

An app is not a website

Perhaps the iPad app will allow you to download the programmes to watch later when you don't have a network connection? The web service cannot do this.

Bradford Too

Bradford and Shipley are covered too - but I guess you've bundled that in with Leeds?
