"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.
The Micro User
Reminds me of this July 1985 cover of The Micro User.
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?
What about red to signify the red ring of death?
Looks like Orange have now also blocked The Pirate Bay. Good job there are other Torrent sites out there!
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?
"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.
How long after that will it take for Orange to release the update - shall we say 6 months?
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).
Acorn were there first?
How about the Acorn (ART) NewsPAD - http://acorn.chriswhy.co.uk/Computers/NC.html#NewsPAD?
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.
Open source software is created by hackers, I think he meant to say crackers.
Surely you won't hear lots of speakers because they'll be listening on head/ear phones. This because - at least with all mobile phones I've used - the headphone lead acts as an aerial and won't even let you use the radio app without them plugged in.
