Suddenly I am filled with the joys of Spring. No, truely.
I can see some problems with this arrangement before I even start but what about having a body of professional civil servants who hear what lobbyists have to say, does some fact checking and then writes a summary/report/whatever of the meeting and their findings and that gets passed onto the politicians who make the decision? If the money is at least one or two steps removed, perhaps it would look less like big companies buying the laws they want and are treating politicians as non-executive board members.
Best reason by far to buy one of those watches.
So, how long before the 3D version comes out?
The title is too long
"If you don’t use Gmail, don’t have your contacts in Google and don't store your music on Google Play, there is arguably little point in buying Glass."
Should start the review with that.
Could this be put into cheap, lower power phones? I know that data rate isn't great it would be a step up for Nokia 100.
If 4-D ultrasounds haven't taken off it's hard to image this doing the same.
It's good to talk, but not to listen.
Sigil. I know it's not being developed anymore but it still does everything I need.
Re: Who is Tom ...
I think for well-known read someone they can afford. It could be good but given the movie ended with them scrapping the system it would have to be a prequel or hit the reset button. That or it's set after with the precogs looking to right wrongs that haven't happened yet. Touched by a leaping precog?!?!?
What about BB7/BB10?
Illegal terms in contracts are not enforceable.
Sounds like a tool for harassment rather than law enforcement. Wouldn't this count as a thought crime?
I think getting pen input right on tablets could make them hugely more functional. I did a lot of proof reading and note taking on my PRS-350 and now my T3 (the e-ink screens help too). Now we just need to wait a few years still Sony get back in the business or tech like this comes down in price.
You beat me to it. When I installed a torch app on my Q10 it asked for stuff like GPS, contacts, internet etc etc but as it was a native app I was able to deselect them all and the app still worked (as turning the flash on required none of those things). With ported Android apps or running those apps directly, you have to accept or reject the entire app. Huge, huge flaw in Android design.
I've said it before and I have no doubt I'll have cause to say it again. When I go on holiday my tablet needs charged when I get to the hotel. My e-reader needs charged when I get back home. I do no reading on the tablet. It is poorer in every single regard except it has colour.
I would have thought if Microsoft keep plugging the imaging technology in phones like the 925 and 1020 they've have a ready made niche right there.
It upsets the people who
bought paid for their elections so go to come down hard on it.
It's like the forms you have to fill in when you go to the US i.e. are you planning to commit a crime while you are here. Of course you tick no but if you get caught jay walking then you've lied on that form which can be quite a serious offence. They probably won't go for the reporter unless they want him for something else and can't prove it. Then they'll wheel this out and try to run him down with it.
Any Coincidence that Dr. Who is starting this weekend as well?
Re: James 51
Judging from news reports the NSA went after everyone and everything regardless of its value to them and even broke the laws they were suppose to be uploading in order to do so. I've only seen a few articles on this but both of them said that the politicians weren't the main targets of this surveillance and when they realised what had happened the recordings were destroyed. Given their recent past Germans are a lot more sensitive about this than most western countries it could be that they’ve got not only checks and balances but enforce them as well.
Would be interesting to know if they really did delete it once they realised it was irrelevant to the case they were investigating. If so their moral authority isn't that badly dented.
The size of the fine needs to be a lot larger than any profit made otherwise it's just the cost of doing business. But the article doesn't state the size of the contracts or an estimate of Samsung's profits on them.
Is there any proof that these ads represent good value for the people who are paying for them?
If the fans take a video of something that happens in front of them and uploads it, they are violating copyright? I know there are big money contracts signed for broadcasting matches but this does sound more like breach of contract that copright violation (am assuming there is something in the ticket small print).
At least now we know the reasaon why Man U banned tablets.
Re: *every* IT post?
three years is maybe a bit much. Use to help train new starts and always told them it would be at least a year before they started to work independantly of their mentor.
I saw an ad in 2013 asking for three years experience with server 2012 once.
Re: *every* IT post?
Where I live the near by universities pump out more IT graduates than there are jobs in the area. However complaining that they can’t get enough qualified* staff some companies where excluding IT graduates from their recruitment drives so they could get subsidised training and wages from local government to bring non-IT graduates into the IT sector. But to get onto that program you still had to have a degree of some sort (actually the best programmer on one team was a former accountant). There aren't that many places to look for jobs being advertised so just going through them now the only ones not asking for degrees are testing jobs but they are asking for ISEB/ISTQB. There are a few developer positions not specifying any criteria, just the language and asking for a CV so that might be a recruitment agency trying to pad their books.
For the record I never said that you needed a degree in IT to be good at IT, I said that all the firms within several hours drive of where I live always put in a requirement for a degree in their ads. The few exceptions are things like testing or support were they’ll ask for something like A plus. Who knows, maybe non-graduates are applying and getting in but they are still asking for those degrees.
Every IT post I've seen advertised asked for a degree as a minimum unless it was a minimum wage entry position and then it is generaly testing or the lowest level of support.
Second screen? Isn't that what you look at the console tab in while you're running the application on the first screen?
If the decision is make to charge the officer with a crime, they might actually prevent justice being done if a judge decides he can't get a fair trial after these kind of stunts.
I bought a surround sound system for my 360. The wires round the room were fine but just turning it on made the floor in the room above vibrate keeping she who must get her sleep awake. Now, with a not so little one running around I'd need something wireless signals and preferably wireless charing as well that won't cost more than the car.
I am surprised that no one has raised the issue of law enforcement throwing a heavy book at someone as a way to recruit talent on the cheap.
When the PS3 was launched it was half the price of the rest of the blu-ray players on the market.
I want to be able to hook up my USB 3 external hdd with a bunch of mp4s and have the xbox play them. As it is I have to turn my PC on so the xbox than grab them from the hdd there.
Re: Maturity is beginning to appear
You make it sound a lot like the n900. *wipes tear from eye* That was a great phone/linux portable.
That's about £50 cheaper than from their website and the price has come down since I was last on their site. I hope they bring this to the UK.
Re: Olfactory imagery
"smells like someone set fire to squirrel shit"
That must have been some camping trip.
Re: Is it just me...
Just you, but now you mention it...
I've got a Skybox which I am using as FreeSat and a French Freeview box. Need the decoder card for French TV.
Have a 360. Was waiting till at least the first redesign to think about buying a One. If this could accept at least two feeds (four would be nice) from satellite dishes and act as a PVR (preferably with an external HDD or swap out internal HDD for something much bigger) I would trade in now. Of course it would need to be able to accept decoder cards. *sigh* Doubt we'll see that any time soon.
Re: Here's optimism for you...
Presumably they'll go and fetch him back.
Don't have time to be an expert in everything, just going by what I see on the news.
At least Bill Gates is trying to make the world a better place with his money.
Re: Tablets make poor ebook readers
Don't know why you felt you had to go AC, all resonable points.
No, I've never seen a review or even an advertisement for it. Not in any of the shops near me. Bluetooth keyboard compatible as well? hmm certainly worth a look.
*Edit* I can see that you can annotate pdfs, as long as you can do the same for epub files when my T3 finally dies might have a replacement lined up.
If true it's a pity. The lack of built it lighting was annoying as was the expense of the cover with a light. However I haven't seen another e-reader that had the same note and annotation facilities and I use those a lot.
Bah, imagine actually employing HR staff. Should have been outsourced already or used uni placement students for 80% of HR staff. Those strategies have worked so well in firms I've worked for before.
I quite like the idea of a 10" tablet with a removable keyboard that can run a full sized operating system. Preferably *inx but Windows would do. A lot of the time though it feels like companies put products out because they think they have to but don't want to compromise another area were they make more money without realising they are probably going to lose the business anyway.
There was a time when AVG was the freebie scanner to have. Unfortunately when I hear non-tech users talk about it now it's because they are confused about popups it is generating.
