Re: The point is..........what?
BATTERY | Up to 8 hours mixed activity • 7-15 days idle life
I got a 5000 mAh (61Wh) one from ASDA a couple of weks ago. 500 mA or 1A output and was only a tenner.
Came in useful yesterday when i had a power cut and an almost flat phone, too
Re: Upgrade or wait?
Downvoted because I don't like the taste of pears...
I'm tempted by the 8X
but I like the look of the 8S in Domino
8X is £400
8S is £225
As a point of comparison, Lumia 710 is £220
I got as far as "My name is Julia and I live on the internet", and skipped the rest
Re: No Lumia?
The Lumia 920 comes in Red, Yellow, Black, White or Silver
Re: No Lumia?
Doesn't matter if it's not available yet

Re: Erm isn't the Droid Razr
No. You're wrong. iPhone is thinner.
I'm sure I also read that it's the world's first 4G phone...
Re: Little bit underwhelming = good news for some
"No major Samsung release imminent"
I think you're forgetting about the Samsung Ativ S
Re: "the communications equivalent of the change the jet engine made over steam".
Sorry to be a pedant, but I think you mean "pedant".
I agree with the residents of Westminster
They shouldn't have their streets filled with unsightly High Speed Internet cabinets, they should be filling the streets of MY local area instead!

RE: ...and that would be...?
CS is the only game I've ever played as part of a clan, but like many others, I also stopped playing after 1.6.
Thankfully the internet at my new place is terrible, otherwise I'd end up losing too much of my time to this
17 years in the making...
Re: Name claiming, but... Here comes da' spam!
The spam filters seem to be fine. Certainly a lot better than hotmail used to be. All the spam was in my spam folder and there were no false positives or negatives
Feel free to change the colour scheme. It's easy enough to do.

"BUT, if you do 'write them off as `in fear for their jobs`'; and it turns out that they were indeed 'correct'; then how do you explain a clusterfuck like this one?"

Re: Really? A six metre gap at 60 mph?
Of course it's stupid, but people still do it in the expectation that the car behind will slow down and let them in (no choice otherwise as it's stupid to leave such a small gap)
The question is, if the person pulling into the small gap doesn't have this system, will the car behind still keep following the original car with a gap of 6m?

not sure if it's still the case
but WP7 marketplace was growing at a faster pace than android when it first came out
Re: To boldly go....
I've upvoted you solely because of your typo!
Re: I hope it's cheap (at least)
I expect it will be cheap, as that's the whole point of WPTango!
Re: 5 months and obsolete
Because it will instantly stop working as soon as WP8 comes out.
If people didn't buy phones because a new better phone is coming out during the contract period, people would never buy phones
Re: "I literally cannot choose from the 2nd set of questions, none of them apply"
I don't drive
I hated all my teachers
I don't go to concerts
I've not liked any of my jobs
I was part of a large circle of frinds, but didn't class any as a "best" friend
Re: shook up the email market
That's interesting, I assumed the storage level was the same for everyone. Maybe it's based on length of time you've been on there. Or maybe they just set it so you're only using about 4% of the space
Re: Rolling in it
Aye, I'm happy with my 25GB on SkyDrive, and all the photos I take with my Windows Phone are automatically synced with it
Re: shook up the email market
The storage level is what tempted me over. 2GB, I think it was at the time when I signed up.
The storage level is now 9.2GB, and I'm still only using 373MB
Re: Hope they fix their photo gallery view!
My photos display correctly, but all the ones I have on there are autosynced from WP7. so I've not tried it from other sources
Re: Max Size Restrictions?
If you already have a Skydrive/Hotmail account, log in to Skydrive and you should be able to bump your storage up to 25GB, which is nice

What do you mean ejaculate? He's clearly being sick!
Re: Nearly run over
I was told by my driving instructor that you don't have to stop at a zebra crossing unless the pedestrian physically has a foot on the road.
No idea how true that is, but I'm sceptical
I'm on an old (2009) price plan from T-Mobile that has 0800,0845 and 0870 numbers included in my Flext allowance.
They've stopped it now, but there's no way I'm moving off it
It's an advertising campaign
Re: Too many stores
Stevenage is the same, 2 Games and a Gamestation. If I recall correctly, Leeds is the same, though fairly spread out.
It never seemed like a good business model to me. I guess I was right.
Re: Very good & about time too ?
Why so long?
"Other IPTV services promised back then include Channel 4's 4OD and Channel 5's Demand Five. They made it in plenty of time - neither Microsoft nor the BBC said why it had taken so long to port iPlayer over."
4OD and Demand 5 are both identical to the Lovefilm app, they even say that when you load them up. iPlayer seems to be a completely different app, rather than just a reskin of an existing one
Re: Xbox Live Gold Required
Gold not required, this is available to all.
As a point of note, this is reported in every article I've read about it apart from el Reg. Same goes for the fact that it will stream in HD as well
Re: No HD
It does do HD
No, you don't need XBL Gold for iPlayer
Yes, but by that point, they'll be leaving, so who cares about them?
Re: Flushed with success
Or people could have them in their hands, maybe using them to browse the internet, maybe using them to post comments on El Reg while in the bath.
Just a possibility.

I believe Apple have also lodged a complaint
What was the fault?
Did it send them the wrong way, did it not recognise the address etc?
Re: ...far cheaper to either get the system repaired or....
No, the conversation would be: "If you don't spend £100 on a new Wii, I'll set the house on fire"
