Re: If full integration is what they are ....
Been there done that, and for £150 a Nokia 625 has been surprisingly good so far.
I suspect Microsoft will bugger it up in a year or two though so I would recommend you to make hay while the sun shines.
Well I tried to follow your link to 'zombie' my google+ account but it wants me to log in first which is a slight problem because I have no idea what my Google plus email address is, I set one up years ago to access the play store, and I have even less chance of remembering my password.
But hey, I opened the link to log in so that's one more 'active' Google plus member this month I suppose.
Its main use seems to be for food 'porn' in this household.
They made a mistake though ..........
They used 'your leaders' instead of Dear Leader....
'Your Leaders' ffs, bit up themselves aren't they?
Re: That... would suck
Bloody hell if T Mobile are the best carrier in the US (in terms of customer service) the others must be really crap.
From reading the article it appears that they are not being sued for cooperating with the NSA but for failing to reveal relevant information in a timely manner. I.e. that their business in China was or had, taken a big hit.
NSA/GCHQ worried they are going to be underfunded next year and decided to take matters into their own hands perhaps?
Ahhh for the good old days when an old spam filled email account and a password was all that was required.
They are still here except people use gmail instead of yahoo or hotmail.
Oooh I know the answer to this one, is it Microsoft?
A much more difficult question would be why?
Parkingeye and Crapita, a marriage made in heaven, or possibly someplace warmer.
Re: Same as normal...
Oh yes, but the thing I find really annoying though is that the copy is better than the original
Is it just me or does anyone else think 'NSA employee' whenever I read a post saying 'its their own fault they were spied on' or 'its no big deal really'?
I suspect NSA has both the means and the inclination to do lots of 'damage limitation' posts on forums such as this.
Or an I just getting too suspicious and cynical?
OK, I will follow that account but my finger will never be far from the 'unfollow this ejit who spams my twitter feed with shite' button.
Oh and to all those who will down vote me because I like twitter I don't care. I like twitter because, used properly, it is like having your own forum populated just by people you find interesting.
Hmmmm so why am I following the register you may ask, gawd knows
Re: Region Locking
Being old and cynical I suspect the reason behind it is to protect regional pricing, however way you look at it, there is no benefit to consumers from this.
I think Samsung is aiming to take Sony's crown.
Re: Region Locking
Unfortunately that doesn't appear to be true, from other reviews I saw a couple or three weeks ago the region locking is just that, starting it of with a sim from the region or country you bought it from does not seem to change that.
Re: Is it just me?
I was going with 'aromatic farts' but yes I can see where your coming.
But, for some reason, aromatic farts seems to work quite well.
I am starting to think that the 'iwatch' is just a red herring put out to send competitors of on a wild Goose chase.
I would find that quite amusing
'driver a better experience by letting them out into a cooling flow of air'
Having driving the route in the past all 'the flow of air' does is turn the cab from an oven into a fan assisted oven
Re: And it therefore follows...
You seem to be saying that like its a bad thing?
Where's the confused icon?
Thanks Nate, its nice when people confirm stereotypes.
I didn't realise Samsung had been taken over by Sony
Re: Unintended Consequences
I agree with all the above except he/she would not be on a bonus, you have to be much higher up the Servo food chain than someone who actually does work for a customer to get any bonus.
Of course this just means that those who do get bonuses exert tremendous pressure 'downwards' to make sure the numbers show the KPI's are met.
Re: They are going to make a fortune
Good idea, send me one please.
Until then I will just carry on using 'hide all posts from this ejit' button on anyone who causes such things to be posted on my wall.
Re: How very sad...
You don't have kids do you? Or more specifically you don't have daughters.
Well XP will be running on my old laptop for as long as I can keep it going, no other operating system plays nicely with Civ 3 (the Civ3 complete edition is by far the best civ)
Am I the only one that thinks the more Google has tried to make its search results 'relevant' over the years the more irrelevant those results have become?
Am I the only one who thinks the web is not purely about advertising?
Go local? Does that not depend on just who owns your local provider, but hey if your that worried what are you doing using any American products like microsoft, Google et al?
Re: And if they fail in court ...
But it's only popular because those watching it don't understand what's good for them.
Re: Lovely hardware engineering
Your a bigot, biased fanboi.......
Although so am I
Every article I read on astronomy seems to remind me of this old joke....
A mathematician, a physicist and an astronomer are on the train from London to Glasgow, as they cross into Scotland the astronomer sees a black sheep in a field.
Ah ah says the astronomer, a black sheep, from that I can deduce that all sheep in Scotland are black.
No, says the physicist, all you can deduce is that in Scotland some sheep are black.
Actually says the mathematician all you say is that in Scotland there is a field in which there is a sheep, one side of which is black.
Oh look is that my coat.
Oh sorry, its been in the news for a week now clearly we should move on and talk about more important stuff.
Talking of more important stuff have you heard that some bloke I have never heard of is going to be in the next big brother house? I know its, like, wow.
NSA not getting enough info then?
Re: Can you listen to the cricket on it?
... but cricket on the radio needs to have the crackle and hiss of long wave reception, oh and the gentle fading in and out as well, if it doesn't have that.........
.........its just not cricket
Except its not just 9 companies, it is looking increasingly likely its 40 plus companies
Big blue smoke screen?
Re: Deceitful O2
I really don't think they have anything to worry about regarding damaging their reputation for being 'bold, open, trusted and clear'
Now if they were concerned about their reputation for being 'underhand shysters' that would be a different matter, although on reflection, I don't think they need to worry about that either.
Re: Anything you didn't know?
Actually he is a European white male whose parents haven't died of anything nasty who is now at risk of higher life insurance premiums
Re: Nothing puts me off a film more
I will go with the +10 -9 thing but then up it +gazillion for the short arse one buying the rights to all the Jack Reacher books.
So, if I understand this, if stream a movie it will have adverts placed in it but if I pirate it, then it won't?
Except you have forgotten that most judges are that old that still photography is new fangled tech to them
Re: "any of which could double as the sound of a starship’s drive engines"
Yet another reason why I am glad I never purchased Facebook shares.
I do believe the googlie ones search results are tailored to an individual and takes into account previous search history?
So if someone was to be always searching for pirate music sites the search results would be weighted towards showing pirate music sites.........
Or do I understand Google even less than I understand the music business?
Whoo hoo! I can't wait, I am so excited about this!!!
For the benefit of any American readers there may be a faint hint of irony in the above, just in case there was any doubts.
Re: Giving Puffery the 'oxygen of publicity'
Think you are confusing PR types and marketing types.
Is easy to tell the difference, marketing types are the ones you shoot first.
Seems to be enabled by default in the android app, which is nice
We going to have this everyday? Can we not have just one article explaining if you are relying on just a sat nav to find your way anywhere off the beaten track you are an idiot.
Perhaps you could then go onto explain how some mapping software is better than others?
Just a thought.
