Still one of my favourite books.
didn't they only ditch the Lotus moniker?

Re: This is where it gets ridiculous...
I agree. I actually have a Samsung GS2 and some of the interfaces for the Samsung apps are dead-ringers for the iphone ones. All the icons look the same and are arranged in the same places. I don't like the way that Apple is throwing its weight around in the courts but I can certainly see their argument.
if nothing else it's a good place to start looking for more reliable sources..
Listen was quite useful!
It's interesting that different countries have different usages of browsers:
USA ~38% IE 24% Chrome 23% FF
China ~73% IE 13% Chrome FF non-existant!
India ~43% Chrome 35% FF 15% IE
(UK ~37% IE 29% Chrome 20% FF)
No surprise that there's not much tack up for Chrome in China but Google must have been quite aggressively marketing in India to beat down IE to such a low %.
It seems Indians don't like IE much :)

....so we can parse it for interesting stuff!
Re: Cloud Player vs S3
It does seem to be a S3 backend...the pricing model is just different.
Did Samsung forget to invite you then?
@Both of you
Well...there's still considerable debate about the extent of Man's impact on CO2 levels. Essentially our industrial era started mid-1800s and we can certainly say that the CO2 in the atmosphere has increased since then. We can also look back in the fossil record to see the CO2 levels throughout history and CO2 has been MUCH higher than it is now in the past. If you go down to the Natural History museum in London they have a full wall on the sea level changes over the aeons and it's quite clear that sea-levels have been much much higher (some 200 metres) than they are today.
The press coverage is almost always sensational focusing on short-term records: "Hottest November for 20 years" etc etc. What really matters is the long-term trends and whether or how much our activities has caused these to change. In the end that is very difficult for climate scientists to determine.
If I remember rightly WordPerfect lost because it was slow to bring out a windows version, preferring to stay in the DOS world. Word obviously had one, even if it was slow and inferior, but that was what the public wanted, thus it won.
although I had to read it several times!
...it probably didn't take them long to work out how old the skull was...everything after that isn't really solving crime...it's more "being curious".
Get your pies 'ere at Mrs. Lovett's pie's..
Great stuff...solving 130 year old cases that have already been closed. No wonder you can't find a policeman when you need one.

4 tenths of a second over the entire run?
Hmm indeed...a mobile browser that needs high system specs? no thanks!
I agree...my wife didn't understand why I bought it but she can't live without it now. We rarely resort to watching live TV and albeit for the initial problems (which were fixed with OTA firmware updates) has worked perfectly. I'd buy another Humax...this one looks a tad expensive at the moment though.
True...but from Amazon's point of view there's no storage or postage costs.. That must account for a few £s.
5 or 6 books a week?
either they're very small or...
400 pages / book, 6 books = (400*6)/7 = 340 pages per day = a page every 42 seconds!
while that handset maker might get bad press so will android....so while it's not ideal I can see why they'd do that.
....even after you've paid for and downloaded it....
...and then remote wiped from under your nose..
indeed...it's called "gorilla arm"
and since they haven't solved the problem they had in the 80's with touchscreens these are no doubt going to go the same way.
...I don't see anyone else using Baidu ...
That's because you don't live in China or Japan where they have a huge market.
State-run stats but
"Baidu's usage share to be 74.3% nationwide, compared with Google's 14.3%."
Wow...alot of comments...
I agree with AC @ 05:07, forums are a bad place to run polls on this kind of thing.
My experience has been OK: two machines both running perfectly. There was a blip around the alpha5 upgrade where my netbook got borked, but I think alot of people had that problem.
While I like the 6 month release cycle as it gives me something to look forward to, I do feel that releases get a bit rushed. Either they should extend the time between releases, freeze earlier or just be less ambitious.
