Yup, dumb move.
I've put WHS into a couple of tiny - 3 seat max - businesses as an automated backup/storage box and it worked very nicely. The fact that they could increase storage at any point without reconfiguring was extremely popular.
Not so much on the Reg; every time there was an WHS box reviewed, you could hear the commentards howling about "WAT NO NAS THIS SUX LOL" from five sites away. So I guess those guys'll be happy now.
First tablet-format device I've though "mm, yeah, I want one" about since the Courier got canned.
The mentality issue
I think Van still instinctively thinks in terms of hubs and terminals. Now, with the growth in home NAS - effectively servers - this becomes more feasible as an outlook again.
I've seen a few comments about becoming a pay-per-meg host and those are relevant, but consider for a second:
If everyone hosts on their own "home server" with devices by default publishing content to that server, then infrastructure costs can be subsumed in broadband subs. Admittedly, this would require ISPs not to be jackasses (and IPv6 is not encouraging in this regard) but I think it can work. Distributed hosting as the future, why not?
it's now available and operational with high reliability at £70m/unit.
What's your point?
More pertinently, what's your connection to Aitrbus?
Re: Sunspider cheating
The only interesting thing about that story was the matter of exactly why somebody hates MS enough to publicly lie about their products and falsely accuse them of cheating in order to discredit their browser.
And who that somebody could be, of course. There's a few candidates in this thread, I guess.
Pashtun is not widely spoken. This pushes up the price.
because it was bogus.
Your response has none.
I care about MS's browser because many users will use it. Quite a lot more than will use Opera, if past performance is anything to go by.
So you don't care about IE9 - fine, don't read the article.
The article said "close to 7 hours". Presumably 3 hours is with the nVidia GPU enabled. Apple should probably worry about that since they don't equip one of them. Not that it matters much, I suppose as there aren't any games for Macs anyway.
he's not an MP. Just a tory councillor.
But nice try.
"We have JDAMs, you know,"
Which were, for example, totally ineffective during the firebombing of Baghdad.
Tornado runs were deemed a better policy as they're more accurate and thus reduce civilian casualties. It was the same in Bosnia and the same in GW1.
The USA relies on Britain to provide surgical strike capabilities. This is why Britain is "not allowed" to reduce those capabilities.
--""I made an ill-conceived attempt at humour in response to Yasmin Alibhai-Brown saying on Radio 5 Live this morning, that no politician had the right to comment on human rights abuses, even the stoning of women in Iran..""--
I think that's actually worse than his tweet. Bloody hell.
you forgot your meds again, right?
Just think of still water and hold on.
The reason they want to keep Tornados
is because the Yanks won't do low-altitude precision bombing runs because their pilots get killed too often.
"Strategic Defence Review" basically means "what do we have to keep doing so that the Americans don't have to?"
Nice to see I'm not the only person left who likes their watch to be discreet. And preferably very slim. In general, the bigger the watch, the more likely the strap is to split when you bend your wrist under tension or weight.
So, not great for work then unless you're a graphic designer or something equally "metrosexual".
No, that's what Apple do
Try reading the article -
"But what is clear is that this isn't an artificial shortage created to give the impression of popularity, attractive as that explanation might be."
The "FAIL" is for you.
I think we'll actively miss that on Phone7, not least for live updates etc.

I hate to ruin your day, but...
Assuming the Zune software is the same-ish as that for the ZuneHD, you only need one tiny registery hack and it's totally browsable via USB.
And also available for backup like any other disk.
Something overlooked in many comments
Tony Smith reviews the iPhone4 for reghardware - 75% SIM-free: £499 (16GB), £599 (32GB).
And this phone, which can apparently make calls without wearing a condom, gets 80% and costs £370 sim free.
For version 1.0, that ain't bad.
Let's look at this sensibly, shall we?
1. Ugly UI. Well, actually, I think what you mean is "UI that doesn't look like iOS or Android". Which is fine, you can like iOS and Android if that pleases you aesthetically. You just don't get to call it "ugly" though. Say what you mean. I kind of like the UI, it makes sense to me.
2. No removable storage. Yeah, I'm not keen on that one either. Not that I've ever removed the microSD card from my current phone except to upgrade it, but I think it would be good to be able to. Is it a game breaker, though? Really? We're told in this very thread that all you need is to hard reset the device to upgrade the storage. That would be exactly what I've done so far.
3. No mounting as a USB device. I tend to dislike the idea of being locked in to a single piece of software but to be honest, I doubt if that state of affairs will last. There'll be a WinAMP plugin within weeks.
I don't work for Microsoft. This is not astroturf. I DID import a Zune and I found the software acceptable and the sound quality exceptionally good. I imported that because I had experienced iTunes on my (then) wife's laptop and been appalled at the quality of sound from her iPod and was determined never to support either.
I think it's worth fooling around with before dismissing so abruptly, is all. Another mobile OS is clearly a good thing, competition's good for everyone. And hey, at least these phones seem to be able to make calls without needing to wear a condom.
We all remember the Ice Cream Maker Guy, surely?
"outperform" is pretty open though, and seems to be referring to Life Beyond School in this context.
I did not downvote your comment, incidentally. Still await cites, despite the Other Steve's misdirection attempt.
Or if you wanted to do it the easy way
Then you'd get an XBox and MS's Kinect controller.
Actually, I still don't know why MS aren't pushing this aspect. Linking your living room with that of your brother in Australia on Christmas Day sounds like a big seller to me.
this looks good
I've been working my way through implant surgeries since a bike accident 15 years ago. The original Stellite stuff was fine but caused wear on adjacent bones due to its extreme weight. The solid titanium is working a treat so far - I like the kevlar kneecap too, thanks guys - but if next time around they decide to go for foam, I will be happy to write you a review.
That's be RegHardware though, right?
