Re: Number sequence

Here is available on all 8.1 devices.

It's actually awesome to not be tied to two devices (GPS & phone) when its been obvious for eon that one could easily master both. Here isn't too heavy on the battery in my experience of the 920 & 1520. I have a 1520 which has fantastic battery life (2 days no issue).

I was a bit disappointed to see the SD card thing come up again. It's not like anyone criticises Apple for its no SD card and connectors any more.

Otherwise, glad to see some positive stuff about winpho for a change.

GJ RWB, took you long enough!

Admittedly there wasn't a metric shit load of conclusive evidence before now, but, it was never not obvious what was going on - only the most naive assumed it wasn't happening.

I think at best the gargantuan scale of the operation is the only real surprise.

Having said that, I'm not sure what people thought 10 billion dollars bought. The Utah building tipped their hand in a fairly major way.

E: not sure how the NSAH & GCHQ aren't labelled as practicing disinformation despite having proof that they do.

From Russia with Code: Edward Snowden gets job on website helldesk

poor form chaps

Why the ad hom "blabbermouth"?

It's not seemly and it doesn't seem in keeping, especially since I'm pretty sure "Mastering the Internet" was reported here way before Snowden got involved.

Is it because he's apparently lifted the entirety of the GCHQ wiki?

does this mean that

So Mandiant uncovered Unit 63XXX got photos of the building they operate from, and weren't able to see this group?

At this juncture is seems as likely as not that most APT is NSA, CIA, TLA either in actuality or co-opting whomever will get their hands dirty.

Microsoft shoots Windows Live Messenger, brings in Skype IM

url

there has been a fudge in all IM user data for years

and I can appreciate that MS is pushing against the fudge (in some regards), but the QQ install base is pretty phenomenal.

until the data gets away from installed, and moves exclusivity into active, then it remains a fudge.

the best data i have seen to date: http://goo.gl/zev4M

(use a hover thing to verify - it's a goog docs/pdf thing from MS research)

my only issue is that its from 2007 and obv misses tencent's huge rise (and renren's), and neither can be ignored in any reasonabe long term estimation.

"The Windows 8 launch was remarkably stealthy compared to the good old days when it was an event on an Apple scale. "

What now?

I'm in SE Asia and I can't watch any TV channel without an adm or (more commonly) multiple ads in the same rotations at the premium spots (i.e. first and last) without seeing a surface ad.

so yeah, i'm really sure the rest of your article is worth reading.

Windows RT still haunted by the ghost of Microsoft's 2001 tablet fiasco

url

it seems like

if the surface fails, then the iPad fails with it.

angry birds et. al. (i.e. hipster toys) is not a long term model.

it seems like the novelty has already worn off (zynga shares), and we either embrace the form factor properly or the whole thing sinks. 2001 was probably a bit early (not enough processing nor UI refinement), but 10 years on, i'm not sure the iPad really brings anything to the table. As such if the MS version doesn't work, both will go the way of the dodo.

great article, thanks for standing your (unpopular) ground

i am seriously considering trading in my HTC One X (whichi is a fantastic tool, but lacks all the things that android lacks) in favour of a strikingly beautiful phone with Nokia's build quality and windows integration.

It's the phone I've waited years for.

6.5 was good, 7.0 okay, 7.5 a great improvment, but this is looking leagues ahead of the competition.

Apple stores getting close to overload

url

wth

take away the spin, and look at the more likely reality

the stores are busy because...the store are also service centers.

it doesn't just work, any goon in it knows this, it will never just work, because - users.

the revenue/staff is simply a nice way to hide the fact.

likely the revenue per staff discounts the service center aspect and so their model looks better.

is seems obvious to point out, but, apple pride themselves on appearance over quality.

i have zero doubt that this attitude extends to their accounting, etc.

Download data versus piracy claims: the figures don’t add up

url
Paris Hilton

i think the real problem with the claim

is that you can actually download anything in .au at all.

each and every internet denizen from .au has always claimed to have an utterly utterly rubbish connection.

so yeah, anecdotal evidence collated over 15+ years suggests piracy in australia is no where near as good as it is anywhere else. reckon I'd find more supporters of my claim than any industry sponsored report, no issue.

sack up guys, get some proper pipes please.

(paris knows a decent pipe when she sees one)
