HTC One grabs BEST SMARTPHONE gong

Well done HTC

I spent a long time deciding which phone to upgrade from my trusty N8. The HTC ticked my boxes on solid hardware, decent screen and trying something different with a camera rather than shoving more pixels in. It's a shame they are struggling as a company, they have the ability to produce decent kit and do a good job of trying to differentiate from the crowd.

Should Nominet ban .uk domains that use paedo and crim-friendly words?

Careful what you search for...

Reminds me of the time my wife was looking for a well known outdoor equipment shop and searched for "blacks"...that's what she claimed anyway.

Try sticking this in google and you'll see how many developers are sidelining Windows Phone

OWN GOAL! 100s of websites blocked after UK Premier League drops ball

Facepalm

3...2..1..Blame

The question is who is responsible for ensuring the takedown request is valid? The ISP's are quite happy to sit back and let these cock ups happen as it just highlights what a flawed process it is.

The rights holders are responsible to a point but the buck should probably stop with the courts who have a duty to examine the request for its validity.

Now, does anyone know what ip range the Daily Fail uses..?

MYSTERY Nokia image-mangling mobe spotted in public

Re: A bit too late..

That's fine, but if I need to share\sync a calendar with my wife who is on Android it starts to get messy. My main issue was that my current N8 is for the first time no able to do everything I need it to so can't wait another 2? 3? 4? months for a device that could end up being a huge disappointment.

I agree, google should work with any smart phone but I've also heard that they need to pay Microsoft for an EAS licence for each account synced so can't blame them for a business decision, if MS supported the open CardDav protocol we wouldn't be in this mess right now.

A bit too late..

My trusty N8 is really starting to creak, coupled with Google discontinuing support for Exchange active sync and the disappointing Lumia 925 release I've gone for a HTC one.

I like the aluminium body, I like that they've tried something different with the ultrapixel camera and the Zoe feature looks like fun....

Still I'll be watching what happens here and may well be selling the HTC if this new Lumia arrives with a dedicated camera button, FM Transmitter, HDMI Out, Expandable memory and USB OTG and isn't locked to EE, I won't be holding my breath.

New Lumia 925: This, loyalists, is the BIG ONE you've waited for

Greg 24
Unhappy

Not what I was waiting for

So, same processor, memory, battery, software as the 920. No SD card or removable battery or Xenon flash like the 920...and they've removed wireless charging (except by buying an add on?)

No, not what I was waiting for to upgrade my N8, was hoping for the rumoured Lumia EOS with a proper Pureview lens, HDMI out and FM transmitter with expandable storage.

Sorry Nokia, I've waited a long time for something worth upgrading to but my patience may well have run out.

Asus doubles up phone-slate combo's specs with Padfone 2

Greg 24
Thumb Up

OK - what's not to like here? Decent spec, good camera....does the pad bit have it's own battery as well or does it ll run off the phone.

If this is available on contract in a few months I may well be tempted....

Nokia offers its maps to enterprise: Deal inked with Oracle

Coffee/keyboard

Default maps

Nokia are a bit late to the party? Nokia maps are easily the best mapping software available on any mobile device, Microsoft recognise this and will be using them in Windows 8.

I think it's going to take more than a few weeks to fix the "bugs" in Apple maps!

So this has been available on various mobiles for nearly 4years, but now it's on iPhone it's being announced as if it's a new media dawn for mobiles? Wait for more cries of Android copying iphone once it's out on that platform too...
