Re: Service pack
Half the time is abandoned by the manufacturer. I don't think anyone should buy a phone that isn't a Nexus variant if you want a good experience with android. Cyanogen and all that bollocks can sod off as well, half the time they seem like they are about to fragment. Its a die hard few, or people with abandoned phones that turn to it.
I quite like 10, runs smoothly. Touch wood all of our apps from W7 work fine at the moment and i havent seen any real issues with it for quite a while. It just has the benefits of W8 with a user interface that doest suck.
Re: What should Microsoft's enterprise clients do now?
Why do people even mention Linux as if its a viable option for 99% of people unless you have a MASSIVE budget for custom development and support.
After the bile they pump out called a browser they need to get something right.
You skipped a few intel chips to make them seem better?
Pentium - You added Athlon so why not :P
Duel Core - That means 2 processors taped together as they hadnt mastered cores
Celeron - This means duel or quad processor that could be newer or older than an atom, but is it better or worse than atom?
Atom - Low powered Celeron? who knows, they run cold and stick them in crap tablets
i3 - good
i5 - better
i7 - best
Athlon - Defunct brand
FX4 - 4 Core
FX6 - 6 Core - This probably gets confusing as intel dont really do more than quad :P
FX8 - 8 core
A8 - Low power good
A10 - Low power better
FX<insert random number here> - ?
Re: My main gaming rig is AMD...
Radeon is the same as calling something g-force. I in no way could tell you what the best nVidia card is :P Intel chipsets are still retarded, and they have the processor names Atom, i3, i5, i7, Xeon, celeron and a few other crazy ones, but then which one has multithreding, how many cores? Its retarded. Especially the Xeons.
Re: Are you ready? Probably not.
I have found it pretty good so far. I like it.
I think i lasted less than 3 hours in my trial, Its Ok to navigate, the Radio is crap. its no better or worse than Google Music which i get cheaper.
If it HAS to use the app store im not sure this is the VR experience for me.
Google news really brings out the tin hat people who live unregistered in their mums basement. Your paranoid everyone's watching me attitude makes me want to watch you to see what you have to hide.
If you survive the Russian roulette wall of Download buttons your doing well. But the Filthy sods then hide the adware downloads so that they look like an EULA!!
The last time i tried to add the Macs to AD I was surprised to find it worked really well......at first. Then when the time came to update there domain password it all went to hell. OSX would not update the changes properly logins suddenly started taking 20 minutes. I never worked out what was causing the issue, we have so few i dropped them off the domain and let them use local accounts. Apple make nice hardware but they are useless at software.
It would depend on how they approached it, I think i would feel a bit of a token effort like they where just ticking boxes on a Facebook how diverse are you quiz. Really Apple should focus on employing the best software engineers (they certainly need it) and not focus on their sexuality, skin colour or race.
"Steve Jobs notoriously having described Flash as "buggy" and its coders at Adobe as "lazy.""
Im pretty sure Steve Jobs never used his products or got involved with either iOS or OSX. Otherwise he probably would be have picked his words more carefully. Especially considering the other article on the register with Apple as the buggiest of the vendors :P
If people wanted to be told how their phone looked then all cases would be clear? Just because the iPhone doesn't offer choice doesn't mean people don't want it. Ives first decent design was the ipad mini 2 in grey and the. Everything before has been shite.
If i didnt dislike ios because of itunes, the messy desktop, inconsistent UI and the dated look i would have an iPhone. One thing they do get is updates, and you don't feel like a second rate customer when a new phone is released seconds later by the same company. Android could do with more premium phones with continuous updates,
"It was also a good Christmas season for the Bono-founded RED campaign, which raises money to fight AIDS. In November Apple set up Apps for RED, a group of 25 applications where the total sale price of each program went to the charity for a week, and the firm reports this helped raise over $20m."
Should have know that B*****d Bono was involved. Short sighted prick had this stuff only available on IOS so that there where exclusive updates to some games we could not buy on android. You would think AIDS was exclusive to iPhone users.
I wish they would break up the European parliament.
Just because there are no decent alternatives to a product doesn't mean it abuses its power. Also doesn't everyone hate search engine results that lead to search engine results?
Installed it my work ipad 4. It really makes bugger all difference having it except all the apple apps dont complain that they need ios 8. I did notice that the animations seemed slightly more choppy. Didnt notice the design change :P as i hadnt really give it enough attention. iOS has always seems rather dull and i cant stand crap on the desktop. I would hate to see the designers desktop.
Also none of our work Apps broke which means its a minor Apple upgrade. You can spot significant iOS and OSX updates because they break everything like a point release of Java.
They should remove adverts for users of Google All access music. I wouldn't pay for YouTube directly as i don't use it all that often for music and no one in their right mind should as most music streaming is free on spotify. Also would PSY have made any money out of that song without YouTube?
Re: Google TV
Amazon are a bit too controlling with their content atm. They are too obsessed with their half baked tablet and phone.
The keyboard is what tablets are missing if you want to do any actual work.
They had amazing phones but crap software. They should have been the biggest Android Manufacturer. There phones are still some of the coolest on the market. The Lumia 800 was a great phone its just a shame Windows Mobile wasnt.
I couldn't care less about the data sharing except for ways to contact me such email addresses. it pisses me off that companies are allowed to share those without explicit permission. I prefer Googles ads to the crap that gets pumped out from places like facebook, Yahoo etc.
As for NHS data they should shovel that to companies by the boatload if it assist in research to improve drugs and treatments. If the Government cant afford the research then someone has to do it.
It would be a sad world with Apple in power. Mobile development would stall. PC hardware development would stall if not completely stop. Everything would be an in app payment, everything would come from over priced App stores. We would all be, "Writers", "Musicians", "Graphic Designers" or "Web Professionals". This would mean that websites only worked on firefox because someone told us it was good 12 years ago. "Responsive Design" would become standard on all websites meaning that no one could actually use the web effectively anymore for anything and there would be no way to turn it off. On the upside everyone would quickly die of cancer from having to use iTunes.
So we can expect a boat driven through the next Black Hat?
We all long for the days when what we read and heard about was dictated by the Newspapers and their points of view.
Re: Trully the jesus Phone
Why would a touch phone need a button?
So if your a black female lesbian and you get a position at Apple then you can rest assured its because it's ticking boxes not that you are right for the position? diversity in a company should not matter, It should be the best person for the job even if that means it has 0 diversity. Its like the BBCs policy of having more women on chat shows. Nothing wrong with women being on the shows, but surly they will always wonder if they are the token woman.
Its horrible that they would turn someone away because of colour, sexuality or race.
They have upgraded a number of exchanges here but not many cabinets. So i guess it all looks good on paper. However those with 24mbps connections are getting upgraded so thank god for that.
You have to wonder what the uptake is for areas which already have good broadband? A lot of people couldn't care less. I would bite their hand off for anything better than the 1mbps we get here.
Re: Oh good
The people who rush food at you while you struggle to throw it into the nearest trolley fast enough that it doesn't fall on the floor?
Tesco Bringing back the trolley scanners is alot better. However it is a shame the self checkouts don't have Con-tactless.
Bank on the other hand need to have people because you only go there because the cash point and on-line banking cant do it. Such as change your address or contact information and pay ancient forms of money in.
It shouldn't be up to Google anyway unless its a Google service. The request should go to the BBC or whoever holds the information. Whoever OKed this action should be removed as a European Judge. Its this kind of crap that makes the EU unpopular with member states.
Is there any real reason to protect a failing business? Surly this hurts the consumer rather than Amazon. That aside ebooks will eventually be the killer. and they dont need postage.
Why don't they just stand together an let Google remove all indie music? They could form some kind of giant label with massive bargaining power........No that would be a silly idea.
More companies should protect against exclusive\timed contracts. Spotify is already screwing the streaming service with exclusives. Soon we will have to have 20 different streaming services at £5 a month before we can listen\watch even a small selection of music. The music industry is slowly pushing itself back into piracy by making it too difficult to get hold of their music.
hopefully they will release a UK version of Dropcam.
Its nice to see that at least one kid was interested. You have to worry that we will eventually run out of interested people and just be left with the iPhone generation who are clueless when the "Cloud" stops working after the last engineer dies.
Re: PC version apparently has issues with AMD cards
It played ok on my Radeon 6950. I enjoyed this game been a while since i have seen a decent single player.
Re: Even better idea
My God people move along there's nothing to see here. XP is and has been for a LONG time an outdated piece of crap. Who is still using a netbook!!! they sucked with XP on them. They sucked with Linux on them, they just sucked.
We have a reasonable XP issue with my company but i don't blame Microsoft. We should have dumped XP a while ago and pushed our software houses to adapt. All of the XP machines need replacing anyway.
VMware would have more customers if it wasn't so expensive.
The android OS is MUCH better without the modifications handset maker do. But I hope they can still make custom camera apps because androids stock one aint great.
Re: <<-- Cynic
I guess Google should be allowed to demote Apple results then as some of their products are rivals?
I have been playing with 8.1 Update. Its alot better than 8. Never really tried 8.1. If they bring in a start menu and the ability to prevent apps hiding the task tray im sold. DX12 sounds tastie too. MS seem to be on the up.
On the PS3 vs Xbox One its too soon to tell. Xbox seems a better all round machine. But who would buy either with so few games. This Christmas is the one to watch.
A Google engineer is probably more trust worthy than any PR company and 99.9% of the entire civil service.
Wireless Charging and NFC is what you want :)
Im not sure why any car company wastes time on a Phone specific function. I just want to throw my Nexus into its wireless charging hole and let it use NFC to set the phone to my presets, while it syncs with my stereo wirelessly. Of course the iPhone would actually have to use modern tech to be able to do this.
That site is HARD going. There is some useful information but how the hell do you find it!!! Whoever designed it should be shot.
I don't get why it needs to read SMS in two stage auth? User logs into new computer - Sends SMS - Facebook reads SMS? Then what? it just lets them in? surly they would have to type it in so that facebook knows its the real user?
Not sure anyone of them could be considered intelligent if they are with Ladbrooks :P
Is this back to the days when a search result pointed to a different search result?
Oh no, You poor sod on your high speed internet. an extreamly unreliable 1.3mbps is all we get, on a crap phone line. I would cut my leg off for fibre issues!!!
