lets get this straight
So it isnt 'free for broadband customers' because you need to have their telly service too? Can you watch via android/apple app if you only have the broadband?
Looks messy to me. In the video, he opens an app and the window size isnt big enough.
We cant go on with a windows 2000 start menu and UI forever and ever. There is definitely room for improvement, especially for users who dont have a touchscreen but I think most people will just get used to it.
Re: Any chance...
Was that added recently? In my experience it just notifies the user that there is an update available, but doesnt actually install anything and is useless for Standard/limited users anyway.
Of adding some auto update functionality?
Another unfair BT practice...
is to charge me £2.50 if i DONT make at least two phonecalls per month. Highly annoying considering i only need the line for broadband.
It looks like it was designed for touchscreens, presumably MS expect us to use new desktop touchscreen computers to be able to use it properly. But even then your average office worker would die of arm ache after half hour.
Sounds like you have too much time on your hands.
I dont see what the fuss is about
Its just an instant messenger and not even a free one! People like sheep have gone with bbm just because their friends are on it, without realising that there are multi platform equivalents available. But with all your pals chatting away, who is going to go out in the cold and leave first for an android or iphone?
How could they save money if it would have cost..
£10million for a year?! Really?
Its about time
Welcome to the 21st century, NHS. Fed up with ringing appointment lines that are only open when venus aligns with jupiter and it beggars belief that paper systems are still in use. Should have been sorted years ago.
The alerts function would be useful if it would automatically check for delays every day, rather than just the day you specify and only for a specific train. Unless its me....?
I'd also like to see an app that can combine national rail and the tube.
Something becomes popular, so they don't like it anymore.
I dont use facebook but you would think that the default setting for this 'checking in' rubbish would be to display to friends only, just what is the point in making that information public? If the default is to friends only and they've changed it to public then i think those users are very naive.
Its the Nintendo way, they prefer to innovate with new control methods etc rather than going for pure power and its a strategy that works for them.
jack of all trades
Its like that episode of The Simpsons when Homer designs a car- they've just put everything on it. Its like they've got no idea what they actually want to do with it and just making the same psp mistakes(i love my 2000 series btw). For all its features there's not a single game that interests me though, yet...
someone please explain how bbs work
so bbm, email and internet is routed through bb. but internet isn't if you are on wifi? (web working on my bb at home) bb provide internet and not phone service provider even though u pay your money to your provider and not bb?
try the demo
thought the demo was utter crap.
Nothing like the original Driver. Many times i switched to a different vehicle and when i switched back my car had hit a wall. In one police chase I just sat still and the police drove right past.
The car handling left me cold, loose, light and arcadey. Someone said its more like Crazy Taxi than Driver, i agree!
Is it? From what i can gather you need to be signed up to Blackberry Internet Services for it to work, which costs money monthly, although it seems to be included within most data plans. Thats how i understand it anyway
design flaw with original case?
When my girlfriend starting having problems with her kindle, Amazon gave her this case for free. They said her official non-lit case was causing the problem, somehow. Shes had no problems since using this case though!
xbox 360 release soon then?
because i remember the reasoning for it not previously happening being that the bbc wouldnt agree to it because Microsoft wanted it to be Gold members only and the bbc said it must be free.
Surely Wsus-ers could just NOT approve the update? Who in their right mind lets all updates auto approve? Especially a service pack!
its about time
Inexperienced users cant be expected to have to deal with all this crapware that comes with the average windows pc. Ideally its got to just work and have everything you need already installed. Why dont Microsoft release a pc that is tamper proof and locked down, just like their Xbox? This is a step in the right direction.
@ Mr Pedantio
Could you not have just copied and pasted a link?
With a screen that big, I really cannot see the battery lasting as long as they claim. And word processing and spreadsheets on a touch screen? Sorry, I just cant imagine it working too well.
And just how are you meant to hold it? Its 7.5 inches wide. Balance it on one hand while typing one handedly with the other? Rest it on your lap and stare down at 90 degrees?
As for ripping dvds- I could have watched a film by the time it would take me to rip and transfer a film.
It will have great software support though, that is vital. If only my psp was given as much love.
So £500 and £30 a month for a bit of web browsing on the move, no ta.
@ Michael C
Sorry Michael but most of these new features are not much use in the environment I work in.
Free PDF conversion we already have and using Outlook here always results in some sort of major FAIL so we have no interest in that.
We are only just starting to install it for some people because of surprise- compatibility issues. A cynic might say these problems were intentional to get people to upgrade. As soon as one person has it and starts mailing round docx's etc its lighting the touchpaper.
Whats the advantage of upgrading?
I cant see many reasons to upgrade, what can it do that 2003 or XP cant? One strange bug i found was that installing office 2007 changes the spell check dictionary in Outlook Express to French and its the only dictionary available! The fix is to install the dictionaries from Office XP!
