I remember in the early 90s placing an order by dialing in to their system and entering my order manually. Can't remember what the system was called though.
I doubt it, they're not even developping it for Linux any more.
DAB in car
Considered purchsing a DAB radio for the car, but then nearly all the stations on D1's multiplex went mono and I thought what's the point?
If it is a Microsoft mosquito net then it'll have huge big holes in it for the mosquitos to enter!
"In the light of Sinclair’s recent Spectrum price cuts - the 16KB Spectrum, a machine with four times as much memory as the Aquarius, was now yours for £99.95 - Lunch cut the cost of the Aquarius to £89.95."
How much did it cost at breakfast?
Re: Tablet computer has slot for SD card - Surface deficiency
You forgot about that Apple you have a fairly big house in where all the 'cool' people you know live, but when you find that you have run out of room and need to expand, you realise that you're not allowed to and your only option is to move to a bigger house.
PS. I would say Android is the house in the nice area.
It is easy to represent that many items on one graph, you just have to start using non-solid lines.
Re: Not much of a sale
So when you recommend the customer buys Monster Cable for £xx, you've got the custmer's best interests in mind? I don't think so.
I see the judge has specified the smallest size of font that can be used, but what is to stop them from "printing" it in white?
It is the easiest way of getting a computer without paying the Windows tax.
What about red to signify the red ring of death?
Exactly. At the moment we have "entertainment" mixed together with shopping, music and subscription channels. Sky's EPG also needs a proper reshuffle, each time they change it they make it worse.
Re: There was going to be one...
10/10 for giving it the correct name rather than the incorrect "Union Jack" that every single manufacturer of tat seems to call it!
Looks like Orange have now also blocked The Pirate Bay. Good job there are other Torrent sites out there!
No Android version?
This is one app I'm happy isn't also available on Android. Who at Orange thought this would be a great idea?
At least that'll mean that I could take it into work and repair the case if it ever crack, or I could replace it with a proper carbon fibre case :)
Wonder if I can justify it as an upgrade from my 3 year old SC-LX80?
Almost forgot about Burn After Reading, just glad I only rented it.
Attack the block has to get my vote. Really really poor film.
Does it have rounded corners too? Then it must be a new Apple product!
Re: What kind of div would stand in the rain...
£1000 for an ElReg photographer? I'll take 3!
So OFCOM have found that LTE interferes with more devices, but because they'll get lots of money from the auction they basically don't care?
Re: Re: Polluter Pays
Ofcom should never have decided to sell of the spectrum to mobile phone companies, plus this whole digital TV and radio thing is becoming a pain in the behind. How long before we all have to buy a new receiver/aerial to cope with the next change?
Not holding my breath
Considering the poor remakes/reboots etc that have come out recently - Battlestar Galactica, Knight Rider, The Prisoner, Hawaii 5-0 and the Thunderbirds film - I'm not expecting much.
"One solution, admittedly a bodge job, is to create GMail accounts for the children to use themselves, but don't give them the requisite passwords."
Isn't it in Google's T&Cs that you can't have a GMail account if you're under 13? If so, wouldn't doing the above violate it?
Yep 10-1 mix of AY103 and HY951, but I prefer to use Hysol EA9396 these days.
The real reason
"as consumer appetite for big electronics flags"
I'm sure that it is more due to everyone realising they can buy the same product cheaper on line and Comet haven't got a clue about the items they are selling.
Plus they seem to want to sell you Monster this-and-that with everything.
The 5 speakers that make up the speaker package don't look too bad, but that sub looks like it belongs in the 70s.
Couldn't have happened to a nicer company. I'm sure I'm not the only one who hope this ban happens.
How long after that will it take for Orange to release the update - shall we say 6 months?
That would include Windows, Windows Phone 7 and the Zune?
Change the A for an I and it is half way there!
This is the reason my last 2 printers have been from HP - their HPLIP software is excellent.
I think the dictionary is still American - there are things like Personalization and Airplane mode in the settings menu - even though language is set at English (United Kingdom).
All the phones I've bought have come with a memory card.
I looked at the manual on Sony's website and to use BD-Live, I have to "Connect a USB memory to the USB jack on the rear of the player".
How much would 1GB of memory add to the cost of the player?
So Sony still haven't managed to produce a blu-ray player that has its own internal memory and instead have to purchase a USB stick before we can use BD live?
What are the chances that they'll be able to install the updates during normal use and not part of the shutdown procedure?
Why is everyone promoting DAB+ radios at the moment? They aren't going to work any better over here as we're still using the old DAB standard.
Acorn were there first?
How about the Acorn (ART) NewsPAD - http://acorn.chriswhy.co.uk/Computers/NC.html#NewsPAD?
The bottom right icon on the Garmin GPS watch is obviously not from Somerset, otherwise it'd read "where's it to?"
We used to have something called regional TV from the various regional ITV companies until the Tories allowed them to merge until Granada and Carl(t)on were left who then became the ITV we know it as now.
times.co.uk isn't the website of the newspaper it is thetimes.co.uk. times.co.uk is owned by Giant Games Ltd.
This has also been shown in the promo video for Nintendo's WiiU.
FCC or OFCOM?
Looks like FCC are about as useful as OFCOM is on this side of the pond. i.e. completely useless.
Maybe he didn't say that, but he did ask what a network was when being shown computers connected using Econet at Acorn's HQ in the mid 80s.
How can they say that "saving of some £85 million over 25 years" when they'll have to go through the same process and spend more money when the next version of Windows comes out and the next etc?
