This song is still a perfect summation of shorditch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVmmYMwFj1I
It strikes me that theres something amusing about bitcoins:
If they keep on going up in value, then who the hell is stupid enough to spend them.
But is no one actually buys stuff with them... then its just a commodity - not an actual currency.
I bet he looked at what's happening to doom 4 development, /facepalmed, and said "this is the new duke nukem forever, isnt' it - I'm going to go do something cool"
Re: not exactly holier than thou
Linkedin has such a good track record with their users security. They even salt their password hashes now!
Im definatly going to trust them with my email !

Re: Pitbull photo
Its worth noting that all except the 290 are rebraded 7000 series cards.
the 280x for example is a 7970 with a slightly lower power draw.

Re: New Option
What, like my corsair c70 with an asus sabertooth MB and hydro h110i cooler and radeon HD graphics card?
Its pretty easy, and it works pretty much flawlessly - more flawless than windows sitting on the other disk. ;)
...and that apple sticker i got with my iPod stuck on the bottom of the case makes it "apple branded" hardware... doesn't it? :D
The only thing is you need access to a mac to buy and download the OS to a usb stick to install it.
Its disappointing to see them go with Mobile graphics again, and desktops shipping with half a gig of VRAM is pretty wtf in this day and age.
Spec wise its almost an upright laptop with a larger screen.

"Some 11 million people have now used Apple's new iRadio service, with the most popular song being Hold On, We’re Going Home by American rapper/singer Drake. "
Tsk tsk, calling a Canadian an American.
Wait a sec, the thing is the size (and style) of an 80's VCR - and STILL requires an external power brick the size of a, err, brick.
Re: If i upload something that i don't own
>what happens when facebook sell it?
You're liable :P
told you so
"After his release, 67-year-old McAfee told reporters, "I'm free. I'm going to America." He said he plans to catch a flight to Miami.
Guatemalan immigration officials have already escorted McAfee to the Guatemala City airport."
We all know what happened
/cough/ bribe /cough/
No doubt he will be on a private jet to america before not to long as the Guatemalans look the other way.
fail both ways
Either way, HP have failed big time. If they did inflate value their company by 9 times its value, then HP's due diligence was woefully inadequate. If HP has managed to destroy the business in the relatively short time they've owned it - that too is a masive fail.
We all thought the purchase was pretty over valued - seen as a desperate move on HPs part to reposition itself in the corporate services sector, along with the announced closure of its hardware business.
So i recon that its a bit of both, and HP is just going from one misjudged cockup to another.
This is old news, what's a better story is how easy access to private and public social media made the secret services lazy and drop the ball a few years back.
this is a 2+ month old news item... is the news that slow at the moment? How about.... erm.... mcaffee cooking freebase bath salts and murdering someone (allegedly) for a new story?
You think facebook's stock plummet is bad, lets take a quite look at groupon, trading at $2.73 last i checked - they were initially priced at $20 and started trading at $28. Quite the fall. It still beggars belief how people thought it would ever be worth that much.
Now he's gone...
DEATH TO THE SKEUOMORPHISM!
Re: The point is..........what?
It was briefly leaked on their store
$500 for the 32Gb model
$600 for the 32Gb model with keyboard case
$700 for the 64Gb model with keyboard case
$120 for the keyboard case on its own (ouch)
Delivery on 26 Oct for pre orders.
It makes you shell out another $120 if you want to buy the keyboard cover ($100 if you get it with the device at time of order)
So i guess it provides enlightenment... of the wallet.
I think equally importantly the question should be asked, "Is this going to prevent me from downgrading my OS to win 7"

Re: I'm so surprized...
thats apple's as well
no seriously, it is.
I'm guessing this $199 price point is for Microsoft employees getting a generous 30-50% discount it being announced at a MS employee only event.

Its basically dog food. And then only if you can't afford the cheap stuff at lidel.

Re: What about he secure boot?
I think secure boot is only required on Windows RT installations.
I've found that the biggest cause of crashes on non OEM PCs is the RAM timings not being set in the bios correctly. The bios often resets them when you upgrade it and then phantom crashes start occurring. Its not something the average user would think about.
Re: Anyone willing to bet..
Always on internet connection will scupper any chance of that - as will the existence of android which does everything chrome does, plus a whole lot more.
Dixons only let you return items if they are faulty, and not because you decided you didn't want them/didn't perform as expected.
Should be interesting to see what happens down the line. I'm guessing they are just going to have one display model on show at the largest PC worlds and about 5 in the stock room that never sell.
Id love to see if Dixons have stumped up any cash upfront to sell this things.
ARMvsIntel Win 8
I foresee many people returning their Arm based Windows RT tablets when they finally work out they can't run windows apps. The i5 version will no doubt be too bulky and heavy to be successfully used as a consumer tablet - but I'm sure it will find a niche in industries.
Wait, as an organisation with millions of users, LinkedIn didn't salt its password hashes? W.T.F.
What in the world makes them think that people are going to pay a premium for this product. Crappy hardware priced just below i5 hardware - the mind boggles.
And look how well web only apps went down on iOS.
Why don't they focus their efforts on making a consumer friendly version of linux, instead of tweaking chrome so it makes web apps look more like desktop apps. But they could already do that by just porting and promoting Android to/on x86 - and that doesn't fit their vision where your every keystroke goes through their servers.
/sigh - suppose they have the money to waste
>>>>What Microsoft probably isn't saying is that the phones are running Windows CE 6.5.
>>That isn't Windows Phone.
I think that you'll find according to Microsoft it is:
Mark my words, The metro UI will soon be known as "Window Pains" (Panes - de dum cha)
Its all about the search revenue
History has shown on iOS that web browser developers don't really care about the engine - what they want is the tasty search engine revenue. Its all about the brand these days.
