The media had it all wrong

They (Google) found some reasons to kill federation, but they haven't found any good reason to kill the XMPP openness. So for now they will just insert annoying seconds to minutes delays in the relay.
They can deliver mail in an instant, but relaying XMPP to their hangouts seems to be very computational intensive or require the message to go 10^20 times around the earth.
Why can't they let chat work like email. The protocol is there, just use it properly dammit.
(the fail icon is for Google, we'll see how open that face thingy gets)
I have a small tool on my phone that locks the phone when a acceleration threshold is passed...
1 (at the time of writing) commentard who doesn't get the joke
Yes, that's completely wrong... you shouldn't use Windows cleaner on Apple products
Now she has identified herself they can send a bill for cleaning up the mess... + fine
(don't know how the UK is, but here the fine for urinating in public is 60 euro)
Did the reviewer actually try tge Optoma? It's closer to 40dB, high-pitch and thus incredibly annoying. No wonder, it has 3 super tiny fans inside.
The firmware is buggy, and the only way to get it upgraded is sending it to support - the update menu on the projector is for support, not you.
Mine went back for the noise (so much over spec I thought it was a fault) and an annoying HDMI bug. The noise was within spec as the spec is an average of the noise from all angles, top and bottom are lower...
The HDMI bug is still there, so the order of booting and connecting matters or the (very low quality) internal speaker starts hissing like hell.
Shipping cost well spent (NOT).
Actually, buying the Optoma was wasted money...
Sorry, as a Belgian, I do not want to watch cricket.
(don't be offended, I do not watch any sport on TV, sport is for doing, not watching)
Make the car/tech company liable for the accident if its software or tech was at fault.
Then watch how their confidence drops through the floor while they calculate the possible multi-billion claims they will have to pay.
Sorry, driving in traffic is *not* that easy.
Indeed, most - if not all - objections from people against it were related to the camera. As a concept it still makes sense, so I hope it returns. OTOH, I started wearing lenses because I found glasses annoying...
Also makes me wonder why the competitors are not facing the same objections - I suppose they also contain camera's and microphones. But they do not look like they should be used in public.
I dislike the people who can't see the humour of Clarkson/TopGear. I hope he gets hired by another broadcaster and makes loads of money for them (and a new program for us)
Yes, there's a video that shows two Tesla's driving in for battery swap while one car was standing at the pump...
But they failed when they then told the swapped battery was on loan, and you had to come back to the same point to swap it back with your own battery.
There have been talks with VMware since 2012, and the answer they consistently got was 'get lost'.
They probably didn't think it would come to an actual lawsuit.
Hahaha.... thanks for the pointer, have a pint
*goes sitting in a corner for a while*
Rest in peace, Terry
Nobody forced the update on you, you tapped the update button. I waited a bit to see reports, an only updated when 5.0.2 arrived.
That said, 5.0 is indeed not what it should be, and I'm mostly looking forward to 5.1 for the fixes.
El Reg is a bit short on details there...
The added support is for color coding which contact/message/... belongs to which sim. So more like added convenience
If not serious enough, think of a serious name, register a website for it. That will get the media to copy....
Red Hat upgraded it from low to medium risk now, yes it's a bug but no where near some other recent scary bugs.
I was mostly bothered by the tone of the article, which comes over like 'had a short glance at the spec sheet but I don't like Sony so let's scribble a few lines quickly'
As I wrote, I have all power saving off, I have gmail push notifications (obviously), plus 3 separate mailboxes on polling every 15 minutes.
I also run my own location tracker, with an app (backitude) checking location every few minutes and pushing changes to my server. So GPS is on quite a bit of time. Also when I use a radar trap app in the morning and evening commute (30 minutes each, the reason I bother with that is that it is an average speed measuring trap along the way).
As for usage, it includes several hours of screen on time.
At the end of day 1, I'm always at >65% of battery, at the end of day 2 it's >30% so it charges at night because I hate using it to the limit :)
Z3C is (for me) the best smartphone I ever had in my hands. By far.
Sorry to inform you that it will also last 2 days with the hyper-aggressive power saving off. In fact, if you would have ever bothered to look it up, it has several levels of power saving, not just aggressive.
Mine has it switched off (except when falling below 20%) and still last 2 days of reasonably heavy use. A coworker of mine has the power savings set pretty high and charges every week. Yep, that is 7 bloody days on a smartphone.
Other facts missing is that the M4 has a plastic case, not glass + metal, and a lower spec CPU. And since the author didn't check, neither can I be bothered but I think the display is also slightly lower spec. But hey...
The problem is companies are buying this...
Second company/customer I've seen this rolled out now, replacing featurephones 'if sms/mail/calendar works it is ok'. Apps are not missed...
Battery life didn't arrive so well with the former featurephone users, they were advising each other to switch off wifi and use mobile data only, I guess they'll be in for a surprise when that phonebill comes :)
So, you will still carry you car (and other keys) as a backup in case the watch runs out of battery....
Do tell me what changed? Certainly compared with the contact-less systems of some car manufacturers. Of with using a stupid RFID tag that will never run out of juice?
AFAIK most vendors allow access to the RAID set while it is still syncing, they just don't brag about it. But then, if you don't have much to brag about....
If possible a non-working copy, we don't want the page to be sucked into it
Wow, that old already, I actually remember playing that :)
(before I discovered you can actually do useful things with a computer)
That would pretty much lock them to only use Nuance...
And BTW, I'm 99.9% sure Apple can send it off to a 3rd party (also Nuance, in that case)
Amazon, Apple, Google,... they are all sending over your voice recordings to their servers to do the recognition.
I'm surprised Samsung gets singled out here. If you're going to condemn a practice or a system, condemn them all...
No, I specifically posted that link, as it explains things in a way even an AC should understand :P
AC, your ignorance suits you, I'd post such a comment as AC too...
Read up on the topic, for example, here: http://daniel.haxx.se/http2/
@Cliff: There are plugins for FF and Chrome that show a little icon detailing SPDY or HTTP/2 and you'd be amazed at the number of sites already using one of them.
Compared to other phones the Z3 compact has little skinning and not quite that many crapware installed. I disabled most and moved them to another tab (Nova launcher to the rescue).
As for the DRM keys going byebye when you root the phone, that's something that I see on many phones that have some bundled extra's, and it is my understanding that what goes missing when you root it is the 'special' stuff of their camera app. The camera will stay working perfectly, as far as it goes anyway as the camera is about the weakest part of the phone.
Indeed, because what you pay is only a fraction of what's needed to cover the cost (the ads cover the rest), and giving it for free would cause even more ads.
To cause more fragmentation (real or perception)? Look, there's two big Android distributions now...
(yes I know the details, so mostly perception, but what does the average phone buyer know)
I have enough of Qualys. All I did was point out an error in their free scanner (how nice of me), and that resulted in a bunch of emails and even a phone call to try to sell me some of their services.
I consider their 'leak' to be quite intentional....
Dropcam was already a security failure in my eyes, my data stays on my systems and CERTAINLY camera data.
(responding to 80% of this article that's about the fact that Google owns it, not the 20% about the free upgrades)
"Not a subscription, just free. A giveaway."
Doesn't quite fit with the "for the first 12 months", does it? Looks like a commentard in need of a better job....
I know you are probably trolling, but I'll risk anyway...
Forwarding GMail to Outlook just makes two Borgs spy on you, not one.
And I wouldn't be so brave to call Windows more secure than Android...
I won't respond to your remark on the apps, because that is 100% trolling.
Running backups while you're busy installing stuff is pretty pointless... My backups always run with apps closed and backup destination only present during the backup.
It looks like Neil McAllister thought he could do even better, and changed the title into something that is even more incorrect.
I filed him permanently under Google Glass Hater....
Read the comment again... not streaming stuff from the police officer, but to.
Think about getting info quickly i.s.o. calling the office and have somebody look it up and read it to you. Or use the cam to quickly lookup a car registration number.
And dashcams/bodycams are mostly recording devices, good for evidence *if* there is a problem, a glass camera could be used to make a picture of a crime and add it to a file...
I understand it more as moving from testlab to actual mass-product.... not exactly axing it.
(yes I know it says 'axing the explorer program', but it makes you feel like the whole thing is over)
Drive a rover over there and get some images to see/learn what went wrong (and maybe try to switch it off and on again?)
The combination isn't working for the normal grid (too many days with not enough sun and wind, not even mentioning the nights), why would it work for this? Now if they had mentioned a big battery that can span several days...
