They need to link this to the printed copy, so you can enter a unique code from that to get the digital version for free. Marvel have been doing this on some comics recently and it's a great idea.
I'll give you one good reason to go and queue to get one. UPS has managed to lose mine somewhere after it arrived at the depot. i.e. it's been stolen. Now I have to sort it out myself with Apple and will probably have to wait a good few weeks to get a replacement.
I see what the problem was
He used a Belkin router. I rate them about as highly as I rate Amstrad products. They both won't ever enter my house again.
128GB model works fine on a Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
My experiences with the 128GB model on a native SATA3 motherboard are fine:
Seq: 317 read, 133 write
512K: 287 read, 134 write
4K: 29 read, 55 write
i.e. it is using the extra bandwidth that SATA3 gives (and you can see the slower write speed of the 128GB model as well)
If I switch to AHCI mode, the sequential read speed actually goes up to over 340, but for some reason that made my real world tests (a big compile) slow down quite a lot, so I switched back to basic SATA.
The government should sort out mobile tie-ins once and for all:
Every operator should be obliged to allow their phones to be unlocked for no more than a modest admin fee (£10?) after any contract is finished.
Every operator should also be obliged to sell every phone operator unlocked, without any contract at a price no higher than the total cost of what a 12 month contract + phone + £10 unlock fee would be.
That way we will see the true price of phones being charged, and hopefully less waste. O2 (or anyone else) can still seek an "exclusive" which they can use to encourage customers to decide on contracts with them (and set their tarriffs accordingly with incentives for longer contracts etc.), but it should be a free market.
Job done. Then the operators which have the best service will prevail and the crap ones will fail. Exactly as it should be.
