Unless the second shot is from a multiplayer map, it's a scene that never actually features in the game. I remember the screenshots on the box didn't actually look much the game itself either, since they came from a much earlier version.
But still... no offence.
"how to transfer content to/from the device"
iTunes. It's an Apple product so it'll only ever be iTunes.
Who is going to base their strategic decisions on what Apple is doing now, when all they're doing is play catch-up?
Just thought I'd counter the unnecessary down vote you received.
Some people on here seem to be inexplicably negative about perfectly innocuous comments.
May I suggest dropping the water while in a steep dive, to improve accuracy. You could also put sirens on the thing reassure the lost traveller that water will soon be arriving.
I think they're upgrading everyone, regardless.
Unless he hit the 1GB in an hour limit. In which case his connection would be throttled for everything for a few hours.
That comes down to the question "what is misleading?" The answer to which is always going to be subjective.
Still, I don't think many people expect toilet paper to be like wiping one's arse on an animal. They could be forgiven for expecting a service they're paying through the nose for to deliver what was promised.
...if promised is the right word, which of course it isn't.
Quite common and often notice is given of this policy on the menu.
Hmm... this appears to be written in English, but I'm not familiar with the dialect.
"said it was a cross of the X files and Lost."
And that made you want to watch it?
Also, which banks actually send out NFC credit cards, and for which accounts?
OK, so what solution did they come up with?
They probably have thought of it, and maybe they've solved it. Then again, maybe they're so eager for us to buy into what they're trying to sell that they're hoping we won't think to ask such awkward questions.
I find your lack of scepticism disturbing.
Is it? When you say common, do you mean common in the centre of London, or actually common?
I think a NSFW sign is needed for these pages of porcine pornography.
"I know lots and lots of people who have iPhones and love them -- and exactly four people with Android handsets, only one of whom even likes it."
Oh for goodness sake. Why does anyone, no matter what side of the argument they're on, think this is somehow credible evidence? It's anecdotal nonsense.
Personally, I know more Android phone owners than iPhone owners, largely due to the relative cost of getting a half-decent one. Most of the people I know who own iPhones like them, but then so do the people who've bought Android phones. I would say, anecdotally, that the Android phone owners I know are more technically minded than the iPhone owners. Take from that what you will.
Best handset of 2011.
This _is_ a tech. website, remember?
I'd have at least a passing interest in her... features though, and not just for looking at either.
So a review you don't agree with is a bad review? There's possibly an element of that, but this particular article is so gushy you'd be excused for thinking it was written by Stephen Fry.
I know you've used the troll icon, but... huh?
I've never found a bought bacon sandwich that is as good as a home made one.
"Any comment on the quality of the bacon used in any Spanish tests?"
If it's anything like the bacon they had at hotel I stayed at in Majorca, it's bad. Imagine someone took a whole load of vaguely bacon like bits of meat, pressed them into a block glued together with fat, smoked it and cut it into thin uniform slices. It's like a sausage pretending to be bacon.
What no black market in piggy products?
Alternatively, move somewhere less silly.
"It's a bit like the proposed 'nuclear bomber' developments of the 50's and 60's where the Soviet Union spent a lot of money trying to get a nuclear reactor into a place before realising you couldn't do it!!"
Yes they could. They just couldn't fit in/get it to lift any radiation shielding.
Electric cars aren't going to take off until they're (almost) as easy to recharge as a petrol car is to refuel. Also, the price has to come down a lot. Also, since batteries have a limited life, I'd imagine electric cars aren't that attractive as second hand cars.
Large scale power generation is always more efficient than small local sources, e.g. using an internal combustion engine. They may not be totally 'green', but they are greener.
I'm too young to remember to the really early days of document printing. Of course I remember dot matrix printers, but that was still in the late 80s - early 90s. So, how does this compare to those early days? Does the assertion that these early 3D printers are like the first document printers really stand up?
You and me both.
You disappointed me there. I was thinking: "who'd get a bag with a solar charger when you can have a portable fusion reactor instead?".
The Mrs bought a Kobo Vox from WHSmiths. It was utterly crap.
£150 for 3 year old tablet technology: 800Mhz single-core processor, dodgy WiFi connectivity and 1 hour battery life. Selling something like that at that price borders on exploitative. Average punter hasn't learned to be sceptical of anything sold in a bricks and mortar shop like us techies.
Thankfully they accepted the damn thing back, so I could get a Nexus 7 instead.
Is it me, or are Microsoft trying to kill off their second most successful, and arguably best, product?
So MS is effectively making all Office 2013 licenses OEM licenses. How does this sit with that EU law that says you are entitled (regardless of EULA) to sell your licenses on when you don't want them any more?
And let the raging hoards of fanbois know exactly who to direct their wrath at? Oh yes, you'd like that wouldn't you?
'people want to call the Notes "Phablets".'
These people need to be hunted down.
They so do look like iPhone clones!!! Don't you know Apple invented touch screens, user interfaces, rounded corners, the colour black etc? Typical fandroid!
...and I just paid £200 for a Nexus 7. £500-700 is utterly ridiculous for a phone.
I declare this to be the most ground breaking development in phone technology of 2011!
A possible answer to b) He's already got through the one for eating. This one's for show.
White bread from a bag: now that's wrong. Personally I believe more or less any traditional bread type is fine, so long as it's of good quality. I'm rather partial to bacon in an oven bottom muffin myself. Perhaps I've been oop-narth too long than is good for me.
I'm no puritan, as evidenced by my suggestion of ketchup and French mustard. It also appears to be back bacon, cooked until quite crispy but not cut-your-cheeks rock solid.
I would probably substitute the tea for black coffee. I'm more likely to drink the tea before going to bed to improve my chances of surviving the night.
Send in... the tro-o-o-o-olls.
Then the marketing bods need to get used to quoting approximate storage space. We're in the land of "up to" here, but at least people won't have reason to grumble.
My thoughts exactly. Urban areas are more or less saturated with fixed line networks, many of which have a wireless hub on the end. Why pay more for a mobile contract for each device? Also, those cities are the ones where HSPA+ signal is excellent. You're not going to be downloading full length movies, but HD clips from YouTube are a breeze.
Whereas, there's a sound business case for reliable 4G signal in rural areas and a line of 4G-WiFi routers*.
*No doubt they'd rather you got a contract for every PC connected to the internet, but it's not going to happen.
Wish you could do that with Android devices (for those that aren't going to root it).
...a radio that may or may not become a genuine standard. I'm still hoping DAB dies out ASAP.
