We nearly MISSED OUT on iOS7 redesign: But someone snatched Jony Ive from the jaws of quit

Or they could have just leafed through a Braun catalogue from the 60/70's. Must be nice if your Daddy can get you work experience in a top design agency.

Nokia launches Euro ANDROID invasion, quips: 'Microsoft knew what they were buying'

David Simpson 1

Well how much worse could it get for Nokia - look at a sales chart over the last 5 years.

"a Google-phone crammed with Google apps and services and plastered with Android widgets, looking like a child has tipped several different jigsaws onto a glass table"

LOL - Whereas a collection of squares on a black table is so much better! Glad to see the author still knows who butters his bread.

Re: Really?

He isn't judging you for your stupidity, he is just hoping like me that you take steps to fix your own dire situation.

You are obviously not familiar with the app settings menu you can access for each app on JB/KK.

Meet the BlackBerry wizardry that created its 'better Android than Android'

David Simpson 1

Considering that 4.4 KitKat has the option to replace Dalvik with ART, by way of a test it stand to reason that by 4.5 or 5.0 ART will be default and all Blackberry's effort will seem rather pointless.

Lumia 2520: Our Vulture gets his claws on Nokia's first Windows RT slab

David Simpson 1

Re: But

There are 5 or 6 version of office for Android, running some sort of Windows with no desktop software and no apps is hardly any kind of selling point.

Most adults use Android because it does the job and is cheap, only snobbish tweens avoid it because they are so grown up and important ;-)

Security? Someone is reading the tabloids too much!

Real version of office ? Like Kingsoft Office or Quick Office?

Wozniak: Please, whatever you do, DON'T buy me an iPad Air

David Simpson 1

Re: Agree with Woz

The things you say you can do with the iPad also work with Android tablets, it's just MUCH cheaper to buy a micro SD, and be able to UPGRADE your storage when you need to, without clumsy external dongles.

Re: Perspective of a recent Android

That's because no one uses any of that pointless crap anymore, you don't need bluetooth with a mount and speakerphone, you have many different ways of video calling, and most Android phones do have USB mass storage.

Review: HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook

So you took out all the screws and the back panel refused to move ? I would advise that like every other laptop in the world, remove the screws on the base then flip it over and remove the keyboard, the top will then come off and you can access the internals.

"Windows Phone 8, Redmond's operating system for mobiles, is truly a jewel, and by contrast to Windows 8 desktop, it is well liked by its users."

It has been running on my EeePC perfectly fine, Android has had support for keyboard and mouse since 3.0.

With a few extra tweaks Windows could be running scared.

Re: Yeah right 500$ from an Android laptop!?

Microsoft have stopped sales of Windows 7, once Lenovo runs out of OEM copies you are stuck with 8.

You sound like you have never used Android if you think it is a "locked down apps machine".

All Android devices have been touch based ?

Any Android device whether tablet, netbook or phone will work with a usb/bluetooth keyboard and mouse, once a mouse is plugged in a cursor will appear on screen. Android has had this capability since 3.0, work really well too.
