Re: Revenue static, profit down
To correct you, they speak perfect English (albeit with thick accents) - eloquent and far better grammar than most Brits. However, they just seem to understand English!
So who will be flying these drones?
Oh right, Top Guns
Actually the article does not refer to the EA9800 as being flexible, the use of the term is for other as yet unannounced models
In short, it they don't consider the cost of sufficient benefit. For example, why does the UK suffer so much when it snows a bit? Because the cost of 'anit-snow defences' isn't worthwhile given the relatively low risk of snowfall.
The Earth isn't doomed
We are, but Earth will still be here.
Yes, please do keep the tiresome sex puns coming. They are very funny and don't make you sound immature or perverted.
Some people, intelligent ones too - have just way too much time on their hands.
Its true, I saw that ad before Skyfall and I too wanted to drive dangerously and be chased by copters. Thank heavens it got banned
Sets a bad precedent
So if want to search for a money manager type of app and someone has patented the word 'money' then it makes my life all the more difficult. Or how about the many maths apps for kids, drop the word 'math' and again it just makes it so much less obvious.
My heart wants Microsoft to give Apple a good kicking. My head reminds me that this is unlikely and that the Surface would not exist were it not for Apple's guerilla innovation. Though unrelated, both my hear and my head however are more enthusiastic about the Rasberry pi being a success.
Re: Sounds great...
Get yourself the custom firmware, it performs a daily backup of all recordings as well as a plethora of other stuff
I was using a Casio touchscreen 'tablet'* computer at the start of the millennium, the PV-100. Even though it had a 128x128 display and you could not install any apps, it really did revolutionise my life.
Re: Looks like it contains nift
Be thankful you didn't have to deal with one of their laptops
The elephant in the room
What of content? Even if there was broad support for 4k/UltraHD content the infrastructure does not in effect exist to support data of those capacities. We'll have thousands of people with 4k sets watching 480/576 line content - much as we do now with FullHD.
That projector sounds revolutionary
Certainly has my interest, I've been looking at Epson and BenQ but this stands out for the 'no-lamp' feature. Should be cheaper to run, cooler, quieter and longer lasting-lasting. Quite possibly a TV substitute. Hope The Register reviews it soon.
I have this test I do on SatNavs. North London to Luton avoiding motorways - if it tells you the fastest route is through St Albans town centre (a town centre - wtf!) then avoid it as it has no inteligence of traffic flows.
It's an overdue step in the right direction, for now I just use a HDR-FOX-T2 + Handbrake. In fact given the superior quality I think I'll just keep on using it.
Why then buy the Wi-Fi one in the first place? It's not as if there aren't any other decent Android 7" 3G tablets on the market. As decent as the Nexus 7 is I didn't buy it because of the lack of 3G and the lack of an SD card slot.
Re: So the UK never got a look in ?
Amazon have had nearly a year to use the collonists as guinea pig. Rather than release the 'proper version' to us Limeys, the instead have let it sell out. Given the challenge from Google however this was probably wise. I'm with Anonymous Coward, Amazon have made it clear what they think of the UK market. Even if 2.0 is released I wouldn't trust them.
I can relate
When I see collegaues skiving on Facebook for hours on end I too feel like beating the shit out of them. Skiving on theregister however of course is entirely excusable.
Apple will have registered several years ago a rough sketch accompanied by a description like 'battery that charges faster'
In fairness the Saudi's of old did contribute a lot to the science, maths, commerce etc. It's after they found the oil they got lazy and developed an interest in booze and whores instead.
Actually that raises a good point; rather than objecting to these TLDs the Saudi's should be encouraging them. Then they can just block the site with the undesired addresses with relative ease.
Personally I have no time for their opinions. With their lavish wealth what exactly do they contribute to the world these days apart from bigotted opinions.
Re: Cyber bullying?
They should nail his bollocks to the wall.
Oh wait, can I get arrested for that?
They shouldn't nail his bollocks to the wall
He got off lightly
Had his Mrs been wearing a headscarf they would've knocked her teeth out. The French these days are like Daily Mail readers...on steroids
I too was an object of ridicule right up until around 2010, the reason being the quality of the my major apps were better on the Palm. The apps or eqivalents however are available on other platforms so I'm stumped why anyone would pay £30 for this except perhaps for nostalgia
Rise of the 7" at last
Has owned the first Galaxy Tab and now the 7.7. It infuriates me when, upon hearing the price, people respond with "oh, you could have gotten an Apple iPad for that". Yes I know, I didn't want one because it is too big!!!
Re: No denying
When it first appeared, compared to what else was on the market it looked as if it was extra-terrestrial technology. Apple, a company that had nothing to do with mobile phones instantly put all of the established manufacturers on the back-foot or in some cases practically destroyed them. The tech also paved the way for proper touchscreen interfaces and is now making it into TVs and cars. Whatever you think of Apple, it did change the world.
