Remember WordPress' Pingbacks? The W3C wants us to use them across the whole web

M man

What does google do...

"The best suggestion I've seen for finding out who's linking to your content is simply to ask Google."

Google strenth is in indexing references and links to sites and comparing who has the most/best.

your search results are driven by this information.

thier ads ride off the back off your searches

thier revenue comes from ads

If the web effectively did this by itself...it could distroy the root of thier power.

Android apps are flooding on to jailbroken Win10 phones

M man

Thing is,,,thats so Right. MS security beats google....

Oh the irony!

(Of course google is winning for exactly the reason (Wintel won the desktop race.

The flexibility and value off android allows you to do things that havent been invisioned by Apple Google and MS. ideas that are bigger than todays market.

But that flexibility and value come at a price, just like Wintel.

on phones

Wintel=Goog(le)Sam(sung)

Apple=Apple

Amiga/Atari etc =WinPhone.

And im afraid...this market will go the way off the PC market.

Apple will stagnate at the high end

Goog/Sam will flood the low end

Winphone will die and become collector items.

Android spanks Apple iOS in sales as fanbois hold out for iPhone 5

M man

hurry up apple.

Apple my lose the "flakers" by making the 4S a rip off and delaying the 5.

i site in a team of 7

two have iphones.

one got thier 4 as a present so thiere dedication is "by default", being a devils advocate ive move thier pro apple stance to meh(although i think they are still pro)

the other got a 4S and was happy, but seeing my year old neo, a new SIII, SII, HTC one and even the xperia mini all do somthing his phone cant do seems to be wearing, he is now, id say 49% happy with his phone.

if apple delay he will come to the dark side.

Windows 8 tablet freezes in Microsoft keynote demo

Re: ROTFL

actully a BSOD is MORE usefull, window 98 crashed, made the user aware it was unrecoverable, and then advised what crashed and where.

Win8 crashed......

what are the odds error screens were prevented from initalising, the BSOD video was a PR disaster, not suprised if MS wanted to avoid a repeat of that, the fact they had a spare about suggest the preped for this.

Huawei uncloaks sleek, slim, sexy smartphones

M man

already has...

any phone that is less then half the width of my finger is too thin.

if you cant grip the phone by its sides enough so that it rotate away from you then its more than pointless.

as far as THAT point is concerned cupino need not worry.

the bit that im impressed with is the bezel width....one day....one day a PROPER folder screen will become realitiy (sorry S2, nice try and all)

hmm..

what are you critising?

that try paraphrasing your posible problems

"Phew! That sounds like a lot of faff...."

>and you work in IT???...faff is sometimes half the fun...maybe you work in marketing(shilsRUS maybe)

"apps to manage your apps?"

>or...apps that give you more option, to run the apps how YOU like it.

Should users really have to worry about caches and cpu utilization and all that? Wasn't this the whole problem with Windows Mobile?

>No, unless they want to of course and working in IT..I WANT to.

Shouldn't Android "just work"?

>Yep, it does.

Looking at these app suggestions just makes me want to never go within 10' of an Android phone.

Because.....? as you seem to not have been very clear WHY, maybe its the technical side you see on a technical site is overwelming your marketing brain?

Seriously. This is supposed to be a modern, consumer-oriented OS?

....that also has added flexibitiy.

i'll let the droidtards point out why (or if) these app dont exist on other platforms.

im slightly disapointed. I was hoping they couldnt find it...just think of all the whcked out theories would be fighting for mainstream.

this just means we are on the right path but somthings not quite right.

personally the current theory just fails the occrims razor test for me.

HTC are ROCK hard

I have a magic.

I have fallen on it while drunk.

dropped it in a river.

Punch my mate with some force while holding it.

dropped it down a metel fligh of stairs.

dropped it down a carpeted fligh of stairs.

dropped it of my desk. MANY times.

placed in a pool of tea.

sat on it..

Dropped it in the mud along the canal, dragged it along by my headphones for a foot, reeled it in and contined running(damned if I was going to let it effect my pace)

dropped it from chest hieght onto a wooden floor.

the last instance was in an orange shop while talking to a windows phone promoter. the look of utter horror as the phone fell hard enough yo scatter the battery followied by awe as i turned it back on without a worry, is somthing I will remeber for a long time

Its VERY well worn but works perfectly.

as you can see i'm pretty clumbsy(i broke the previous phone in 24hrs)

If your is as solid as the magic you have nothing to fear.

Android app sales skimpy, sluggish, slack, scanty...

M man
Meh

FFS!! a title? i'll give you a title....

Simples

1)android phones are sold to poor people(statistically anyway), free(as in speech)tards, paranoid anti control freaks or techys or their friends.(I am in part all four of these)*

a)poor people cant afford apps or don't have a credit card.(you can BUY a phone from £60 FFS! how low does your credit rating have to be to not be trusted to pay back £2.50 a month.)

b)freetard would rather get the(usually)free open sourced based app*

c)techy (can) steal their apps.

d)the paranoid wont trust their credit card.

that's gotta dig into the number of people PREPARED to pay.

2)the number of apps offering ad-supported versions far exceed the appstore(tm,Ptpend)

3)the number of free, "will do**" apps a to compete with the paid apps again exceed app(le)store

4)the search (considering it from the worlds number 1 search provider)is horrendous, it doesn't even support -(minus) .......FFS.

so if I am willing to pay, can find what I want, there is a good chance there's an app supported(thus effectively...free***) option available.

Its not surprising that sales are low.

*my coats the troll shaped one with its own bridge.

**as in its not perfect but for FREE it will do.

***yeah I know its not free but I get to pay with a comoditie I have loads off....free eye time.

HTC Desire S Android smartphone

M man

spec..

"It sounds like a good camera is really important to you.

So I have to ask, why not get a digital camera?"

actully I just want a reasonable camera. I came to the conclusion that the way I take photos means a digital camera is no use to me. I take quick picture at random times that dont need to be that amazing.

so

I only need 3MP, anything else is a bonus

I need it to be with me all the time so not another device I carry if i remember or have space.

The reason for the button "nearer" the middle is so that i can pull out my phone, hold the phone one handed and take a shot. If it at the end of the phone I have three choices. 1)hold it with my hand covering the screen, 2)hold it at the very end upside down and get a wobbly shot(and if im waiting on autofocas miss the shot) 3)hold it upide down in my (much less steady) right hand(if its free) and even then cover half the screen.

the camera nearer the middle may relate to the fact any phone ive seen with a button is on the same side as the phone, maybe I only need to have one where its not situated so my wrapping finger dont obscure the lens.

and yes..typo...it is 3.5mm

it frustating

and add to that I just need a normal sized phone, so no X10 mini or huge Arcs.

which is frustrating as this is the size im looking for.
