you supposedly can only paid into a bank account for scrap in the UK these days
Re: Apple also
With no way to delete transferred photos if you don't have a computer
it's the difference in £300-£500 and well over a £1000, that's why.
Tablets are more vulnerable and less likely to last as long anyway
the thing I am most concerned about is the battery, my macbook is 2.8 years old and according to the menu bar needs replacing, so I will, it's a bit of a faff as there is a tri-wing screw but easy enough apart from that. One this after 3 years the macook would be on it's way to useless.
On the Hudi
It's £119, for that price it's very well built is somewhat chunky.
It seems fast enough and is mostly uncluttered apart for the understandable tesco soft key.
It is hard to work out which way up it is and so find the power and volume controls.
It seems perfectly fast enough and nnlike my new nexus 7 the touch screen is responsive
If you want something reasonably cheap that is not an expensive disaster when the kids bugger it up
the Hudi will do nicely
the fingerprint unlock is a nice feature but not enough to jump on the ios bandwagon, I have a super sweet deal with t-moble so unless I bought an iphone outright it's a no go for me
according to the text messages I keep getting I am due a rebate, I think they lie
but NO you can't have it
or want it
following ie 9
internet explorer has this feature, I assume Mozilla thought now thats a good idea. They need the feature that ie 9 has that any addon that slows the startup by more than 0.2 of a second throws up a dialogue asking if you want to disable it.
software patents my arse
I am all fot copyright of software code but vague software patents, bin the lot of them.
Having a windows pc being used to firefox and coming to the Mac there is something less than satisfying about safari, so it never gets used on my machine.
Because of firefox's erratic memory use on os x I mostly use chrome
I can.t remember the last time I saw an actual virus on a windows machine just malware
the difference being
I am not defending this (if its true) and it was just a matter of time before this happened but the difference between OSX and windows is on osx you must provide a password to instal stuff on windows maybe depending on how its set up.
this is not new
I have seen this sort of thing for years , its hardly new
not had a problem her
I have updated over 20 pcs mixed 32/64 bit only problem one of them had to install a fix for something missing before the service pack would take. This report smacks of the so called kinect problem the bbc reported that was nothing
I have the cheaper £1000 i5 and compared to my old white macbook its much better. In normal use its whisper quiet and hardly gets warm at all. In my use the battery probably will do 5 hours whilst not earth shattering is pretty decent.
the new Samsung box is much better than the old V+ box and the picture seems better.
One thing to note with sky is the picture quality on the none HD channels sometimes is so bad its unwatchable, not a problem you have on virgin
Apple will be taken down
Once the regulators get their teeth into this the shit will fry. If microsoft have to be forced to play fair so will Apple
we are a country of prudes
If a women of her own choice and of a legal age "sell's her favours" , I can't for one see the problem. Its her body not the states. The so called moral aspects of the oldest profession should have been left back with the Victorians.
Bring prostitution out in the open with checks to make sure the ladies are doing it of their own choice and leave it at that.
the bbc article is speculative crap with no basis in fact. If it was true it would be all over the place, the only articles in the internet about this link to the bbc one. I call poor reporting techniques, the bbc seem to have a spate of these recently, probably one shoddy reporter.
Like the article says unless you put it in a protective gase tje iphone 4 is an accident waiting to happen. One thing that put me off about the iphone is the contracts are expensive at least £10 a month more than one with other phones
we are admitting now that the Ipad is a big assed ipod touch are we ?
insecure by design
I wish I could go time travel back to 93 and show Bill what a fuck up the design of windows is before everybody started to get used to how windows works to install stuff. Microsoft need to enforce password for install like most other OS's. I do home support for PC’s and regardless of what Virus software is on the PC stuff is getting through. So MSE as good as anything else, at least it won’t bog you down. That said I am mostly installing Avast at the moment
some truth here
The only real advantage is the magsafe connector. The video thing is more Adobes fault than Apple's but I will agree with you most videos on the web play poorly on a mac. though I personally have had no problem with my battery which still manages 92% capacity after 35 months
touch screen, no thanks
I honestly can't see the point of touch screen computers apart from the obvious point of sale type. I can see the use of touch for phones and tablet devices but for full blown computers a mouse is better. if the imac had proper Stylus control for graphic use it would be a killer but can't see it really,
depends what you want from a phone
I don't give a toss about facebook updates can live without instant twitter feed and all the other social network garbage so probably not the phone for me
if you want ebooks get a kindle
I set a new Sony reader up for a customer and it was a nightmare on her sluggish laptop. As someone else has stated using the waterstone site is fiddly, and thats being kind. You have to install the sony itunes lookie likie and some adobe thing to get the books registered to the device. With kindle buy the books on any web browser and they appear on the device
you pays your money
as froyo allows wifi tethering and this is usually a paid for feature this is understandable. I got impatient with t-mobile (UK) and put the generic 2.2 firmware in my desire, the result of this is my phone will provide wifi tethering which I don't actually pay for, which is nice. These non-stories are a bit dumb, most people never mess with the phones firmware, so this will have no effect, for those that do I am sure there will be a way round it eventually.
market value , my arse
How much a share is worth in real terms has nothing to do with the profitability of the company. This is a bit of a non story , Apple make a good profit but there are many companies including Microsoft who make much more. What this story says is apple is over subscribed because its sexy
