It's a nearly pregnant thing then.
Re: One OS
I think the problem with M$ is too big a team or many teams doing bits of the UI. The old designed by a committee chestnut. Windows 8 from an outsiders perspective is an obvious custerfook, throwing away 20 years of evolution of the desktop and start menu to tack on a brand new interface was stupid in the extreme.
Apple have hardly changed how OSX works (at a basic level) in nearly 14 years
I know this
The Janus Group took the plane down
Patents on censeptual things are just dumb
It nice to see litigious Apple take an hit on this but like most patents like this have prior art. Voice recognition has been a staple of SF for as long as I have been around and longer.
You should not be able to patent solutions to problems anyone with a bit of thought (slide to unlock) could have come up with.
It's hard to make a living as a bottom feeder ask Dell
overly long sketches with occasional funny bits, I can't wait
to be featured in FW emails from the over sixties everywhere.
FYI I filter FW emails out on the server
All we have got from the useless EU is the unnecessary in 2014 M$ confusing to users browser choice BS, it's quickly coming scrap and replace time
20 plus years without a watch and counting so Idon'twant
the goal area is (relative to the one dude protecting it) massive, it's only down to the skill professional defenders and goalies the score is not high in every game. this new ball if it goes where you kick it in a more dependable way will mean more goals.
I noticed that I got lastpass to generate one, it's random 12 characters mixed upper/lower case and numbers and only medium
https://howsecureismypassword.net/ says 25 thousand years to crack so maybe I will be OK.
I have been hoping Sony would go bust for years anyd it's nothing to do with the consoles which I have no interest in.
It's a watch
The thing vry few people wear any more, the isheep will lap it up
what's done is done and without Jobs jaunt to Next there may have not been OSX or IOS
Unless the full sized end is made from something more sturdy than the plated pressed steel its expensive trash waiting to happen
Unless you use mad eye moody level of constant vigilance (and unchecky) crapware like this toolbar gets easily installed, oh an yes realplayer is still a thing and I actually know someone who paid for the pro version recently
Re: If those keys, err coins, resurface again...
The way bitcoin works if you have the keys to the coins they are yours with nothing to trace them back to mtgox so yes they are worth something, Scan computers will build you a kick as PC with them for one thing.
I really don't like the Modern UI (or whatever they are calling it now) on a desktop, it's a mess.
That said if you circumnavigate the tiled interface the new desktop style makes windows 7 look old.
some what archaic idea but,
I am not a big fan of dishing out £145 plus but commercial TV is mostly awful so I guess it's business as usual.
The Tories have been goig on about this for decades but as per usual they will do nothing.
Re: Can't wait to not buy this one!
The so called Iwatch unless is has little functionality will be pretty chunky, can't see many women wanting a big assed watch.
Tell me who
Who actually wears a watch these days?
CO2 traps heat in the atmosphere that is a fact. The rest is so complicated a definite answer to what will actually happen will only come when it's happened. More weird weather more of the time probably.
sky broadband are they still awful?
My job is mostly home pc support and I have had dealings with sky broadband over the years and it was always a trial on the phone. With the onset of adsl2 and2+ people seem to have less connection problems these days so I have not had to talk to Sky for a customer for years.
My question is is Sky BB customer support as bad as always or have they got their finger out?
I am a bit better off than last year but I didn't do anything this year that was not necessary, virtually no booze or going out.
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
Re: Whatever happened to free at a tenner a month
I pay £7.50
Fair Us internet
Unlimited land line
Use may own phone LG 2X
apart from the price
The problem I have with this is it's the ultimate in throwaway technology with its impossible to replace glues in battery
hardly wort a review
Just a slight boost from the one I bought earlier this year, Waste of the internet
How small must your penis be to need a 64 inch tv to compensate.
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.
I wish htc would start putting optical trackpads back on their phones
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.
the screen would be expensive
if the 3ds is anything to go by it would kill the battery life (tone of the ipads strongest points)
who the hell wants it
has this fad not dead yet!
If you want 3d drama go to the theatre and watch a play. 3d tvs are a pointless piece of fluff
how can it be legal to jailbreak an iphone but not a ps3?
follow the ie road
so they are doing this not because that functionality is part of internet explorer 9 but because a good idea?
ie9 does this and checks for stuff that slows down startup
am I the only mac user how never uses spaces?
yes but no but yes
smacks of the apple grip of death videos to show other phones have problems with antenna's too
this is not new
I have seen this sort of thing for years , its hardly new
