Or should that be paper-mass?
I thought wave's biggest problem was that is required moving the whole communication into the googleverse. With gmail I can communicate with people that don't have gmail accounts even, occasionally, hotmail users.
"Usually techie sites are full of sensible pro-choice, 'Free my Device', 'Its My Computer', 'Jail-breaker' kind of people"
You mean another bunch of small-minded arseholes who don't understand that the choice they should be exercising is not to buy the fucking thing in the first place?
I don't currently own an iPhone/smart-phone and life seems to have gone merrily on with barely a care in the world beyond still having more beer-tokens than I might otherwise have had. Must do something about that...
Who gives a fig
Cambridge beer festival at the end of the month... I shall be flying in specially. Who cares where the Microsoft office is?
forgot or didn't have to register?
I'm biased because I've generally only heard good things about Lord Oxburgh but reading this 'story' I did have to wonder about a couple of things. GLOBE has in it's listing 'Nature of Business (SIC(03)): 9132 - Political organisations' - I wonder if peers have to declare in the register of interests every political affiliation they have? I don't know the rules... I'm just asking.
Also the thing about him being one of 23 key legislators just means he's (a) a legislator and (b) people find him worth listening to.
Anyway, like I say, I'm biased but this doesn't strike me as a huge deal.
(for the record, while I hate the term, I'd fall on the 'climate sceptic' side of the debate and I rarely hug trees).
As I've been saying for years:
a) Computers are a bit shit really
b) So are people
There are exceptions to point (b).
Alternatively: Computers are just dumb tools. So are most of the people using them.
hehe... twatblanketry :-)
Re: I just want a cheap netbook
Not the cheap option but iPod touch and iPhone are ARM based aren't they... and there's rumours of a jumbo iPod touch, iTablet thingumy. A device that just works? Even games available from iTunes...
