Re: But it said, "Heavy Duty"
They would have had the same problem with the most expensive alkaline batteries or didn't you know that? Someone didn't ask a technical person about the purchasing decision.
Re: @ Ian Emery (was: Smoke Alarms....)
Doesn't matter what alkaline battery you buy. They don't work below 5°C. You need lithium. This has what happens when you let non-technical people make buying decisions.
Re: Only a complete idiot...
Used alkaline in the cold? So they've got an idiot in purchasing and even more idiots fitting them that don't know the basics in battery technology?
Should have read the Battery review Web site
Everyone has problems. It's how you deal with them that separates the grownups from the cowboys.
Just tell us Virgin, you gain much more respect from us.
Re: Did you see that picture?
Looks like a Toad. So not a plant at all.
It's all about the Software...
If the software is good, you shouldn't care what OS it is on.
Re: makes my 8TB raid nas look out of date
Saw a 2TB SSD for $2000.... :)
Re: All I wanna know is...
Can it play DayZ in Town above 25fps at HD resolution? Can any system?
Someone want to tell us why Adobe keep dropping stitches in their code?
Re: Tandy UK etc went the same way. Maplin beware, you are next!
Maplin is doing very nicely actually. In the black and making a profit.
Maplin did what was necessary to remain profitable.
Sure, it's not the cheapest store. But that's good business.
It has 3 different quality levels for most things. If you want super high quality it's there for a price. If you want cheap it's there as well. But if you want the cheapest, then go on the Internet, wait a few weeks and hope it's not a counterfeit. Ask your technical questions, I can answer them. Then try claiming on that 365 day guarantee your online product wouldn't have.
I see so much cheap, fake rubbish coming into our Maplin store from customers buying from Amazon or eBay.
Seagate for me.
WD keep failing on me.
As long as you keep vibration & heat down you're laughing. Oh maybe use a decent SMART tool monitoring them? Cables and RAID Controllers do go faulty.
Redefine the size of a 'lap'.
Set my temp/tmp folder to a 4GB RAM disk. Fixed sized swap file. Goes like a rocket.
My OCZ Vertex still going strong with no errors after 18 months.
Damn, just when I was going to watch that Gangham video again...
Because they were artificial humans, not robots? Maybe watch the film again?
Re: Good question....
Nope, nothing like each other.
At least for once the Register didn't list Daleks or Cybermen. Small mercies, small mercies...
Sorry, you're telling Register readers how to suck eggs?
Did the average IQ level suddenly drop?
Maybe the Journalist needs to go back to a magazine like "Computers for Seniors"?
Gee, another Reviewer who can't review.
No mention of the 3GB of RAM which means I have a phone that can take a serious amount of Apps doing real work without slowing down to redraw the Launcher.
Swapping between Facebook and Firefox is fast and doesn't lose your place when you've scrolled down Facebook.
It's got a decent volume at last, the screen is really bright and is crystal clear, even when reading tiny text.
Camera is rubbish at living room light levels, but then they all are.
Easy to root to get that micro SD patch for 4.4. Looking forward to Android 5.
A decent phone.
Let's hope they sack the Writer and all those people that approved it for release. Shame on them.
Re: am i going to get back...
Well version 5 of Android will allow that once apps are updated for it.
Course you could do it today by rooting your phone and applying the SD card patch app.
Took me 30 seconds. :)
Try a Galaxy Note 4.
I got one last week and it's simply gorgeous.
I'm 52, so this phone is large enough to read, loud enough to hear and oddles of RAM that means it no longer crawls to a stop if you're a serious App user.
It also fits all my pockets. Maybe British troosers are big enough or is it a guy thing?
So are private companies selling guns, ammunition, tanks, missles and training. But these are sanctioned by governments.
It killed my TIVO box too. Couldn't access any programmes. Phone service said it would be fixed by 02:30am.
So why the big Apple sign outside the store?
I'm still going to call it Windows 8.2...
Nothing wrong with Windows 8.1 that a few hours practice and a mind willing to accept change can't fix.
Could it really be businesses don't want to spend money on training their Minions considering they got that free before when personal would train themselves at home?
Course not..... :)
Blind Cave fish?
No eyes. Plenty if Genes.
Are IOS developers gonna learn how to spell?
Re: Now you can lose 8TB of data in one shot instead of just 4!
Let me guess, you bought your domestic Seagate drives at the lowest price you could find and discovered they got shipped to you in bubble wrap bags?
And you have the cheek to blame Seagate?
Owner of the camera obviously.
Freelancers often take photos by leaving a camera on a tree overnight. Does that image belong to the passing animal? Course not. Belongs to the owner of Camera.
If a person is hired to do a photo then there will be contract between him and say the BBC.
So all images become the copyright of the BBC as agreed by that contract.
If the BBC only ask for limited use of said image, then copyright remains with owner of material.
Surely the video was published on YouTube?
Therefore YouTube is guilty and if you share links to that page, you're guilty of promoting it?
What's the problem?
Haven't we been here before?
I've not seen this video and quite honesty I don't want to.
A good while ago there was reports of an American getting beheaded on video and I stupidly thought I'd try to find it. Well I did and I had nightmares for days afterwards. My fault I know. But who cares what accent these murderers have. Just stop them OK?
Is there any other kind?
Re: is that what ElReg sarcasm looks like
Several years ago scientists invented a glass coating that doesn't reflect light.
Saw it on a BBC programme about the London Natural History Museum.
You shine a light on it and it only shows you what is underneath it.
Odd how this site and others completely missed it.
Several companies are bringing out products that use it.
Why not look at the 400GB SSD RAM sticks?
Kate should put up some Infrared lights on stage. The audience won't see them. But all the cameras will! :)
5Gbits? Only 5 measly Gbits...?
Slow day or drop in Hits hmm?
Re: New batteries...
That's no big deal. They swapped Lead acid batteries for Lithium.
5 years ago we were promised x4 capacity batteries using nanotechnology. Where did they go?
Norwegian blue dinosaur anyone?
Time to re-run that campaign to get Mr Spielberg to make T-Rex fluffy! It's only good science!
Time to dig out my Valves. I knew there was a reason why I kept them.
When I got my Internet account found YouTube Web site was blocked.
Well that was that. Turn off my ISP filters. Why bother with this kind of lunacy?
Goodness. My phone runs faster and has more RAM!
Re: Composite Output
Maplin sells two types of 3.5mm leads with 3x RCA. A Sony or Panasonic lead. So at least 2 standards. :)
