Called the layers Swatch are using our name ......
Downvoted for coming across as a pompos MeMe
As the phone connects to free wifi hotspots I assume the data usage is only when connected to and using the cell operators network.
If not then are they saying they will charge you for free data usage on free wifi ?
In Comparison BT Mobile offer non broadband customers a SIM only 12 month contract for £25, thats for unlimited calls and texts plus 20 GB of data, plus unlimited connection to BT Wifi with over 5 million hotspots and BT Sports. I have it and don't need home broadband or phone any more. Shows how bad a deal you get in the USA.
Well then post more stuff , anything at all, just post, post, post....
You will then jump to the top of sites users(sorry people) don't care about.
Sheesh what a waste of space and time Facebook is.....
Maybe shock/horror because Google is not an NPE and plans to use it in the future.
All hail Google and their beloved army
There are several NPE's some even owned by roups of companies such as Apple who buy up loads of patents form all over the place and package them on FRAND terms or similar so you can get most of the patents licences you need to cover your product for a small fee in one place. These very useful companies need to be protected for all our benifit.
What is needed is to limit what NPE's can do, just stoping them from getting goods banned etc would be enough, they should even welcome it as the continued sale of goods could lead to more money for them.
Most of all we need to have each patent concidered for uniqueness etc and if it should be given the ok or canceled before any court time etc happens.
What a load of bollocks
BT want EE but wont get the go ahead to buy it (If they do get it) until the end of the year
O2 are being bought by Three's owner not BT and that will again need up to a year for the go ahead.
BT Mobile is a virtual network just like Tesco and Giff Gaff etc.
They also include BT Sports App and unlimited BT Wifi hotspot useage on all sims so not that bad.
Unless they can get a mega company to buy into the OS like say Samsung and have them install it on their tighest spec phones then its a dead duck niche player.
The Chinese are already going their own way and companies are either using Googles OS or writing/modifying their own such as Tizen or WebOS. Lets be honest here, the vast majority of people in the world don't know what Cyanogenmod is let alone how to install it safely. They are just looking to buy a phone that can text / twitbook / email and take piccies of their lunch to post. Cyanogenmod is the last thing they want.
WHAT ? ? ?
And where do you expect the bandwidth for the satellite system of yours to come from ? It would only work if all high bandwidth useage ie video were restricted to what is basically linear like terestrial tv.....
Dont forget most of us want to start watching a youtube video or film etc at different times to the rest of the world.
Please please please BT announce some crazy low prices. My contract with 3 is ready for renewal and I would love something to use to try for a better deal.....
Would never go BT though or even EE after experience with them.
One (most likely ugly) feminist complains and they investigate ?
What a waste of time and money, there is nothing wrong with the pictures unless you are looking at them for that sort of reaction.
You see worst in the tabloid press every day.....
Its easy, turn off your pc most of the time and use a chromebook or chromebox. Only use the PC for when you must have that windows only piece of software.
I started this last year and the pc is turned on at most once a week for a short time, the rest of the time my chromebook does it all for me.
Oh and the speed to turn on a chrome device against a windows one let alone the wait for the windows machine to shut down AND stop accessing the hard drive as part of the shutdown routine.
Um they are not there because they are not used in the OS......
Also pay an extra £5-10 a month if I was given access to the complete BBC library of tv and rado content to stream.
Just rewatching all the old stuff would mean no Netflix or Amazon prime needed for many years. add to that the radio streams and I wouldn't need audio books or podcasts so much either.
Giving the Beeb permission to stream their archive content would give them many millions a year and increase it to billions if they could stream it world wide.
Say what ? ? ?
I have read that Apple have up to 50% of the smartphone market in the US of A. Therefore how are they going to eat the other 50% ofthe market ?
As for outside the US then Apple have much lower market share. Add to that just having the same stuff built into your credit/debit card then even more reason not to use the phone for it.
What a load of rubbish.
BB10 is built on QNX, the most secure full linux distro there is, its why its used so often in places like nuclear power plants.
Try google first, you might learn something
Oh ha ha
Plonker comment used as nausium.....
As bad as all the fanbois / android / M$ stuff so many still are deluded enough to think is funny.
Oh and Yeh I have a blackbery 10 as well as an LG G2, both great in different ways.
Facebook doing what it wants without reguard to users rights etc I would never have expected that.
One of the many reasons I never use it.
If so I'm amazed how many bugs etc have been missed so often in the past including the last version.
You start your post saying hes right and attack the ability to have the colour you want on the back and even real leather if you want, also the trim on the phone and screen surround as you want and say its junk ? Its installed during manufacture and built into the phone not a 10p ebay clip on cover that many stick on their £500 mobile.
Then you say its like going back to a limited colour scheme etc, like the iPhone....
You sound confused,
"And I believe that’s abdicating your responsibility as a designer.”"
WTF just how much design has gone into the iPhone since the first version ? Pretty much zero on the outside, it looks the same to me and with the exception of the 5c has a very limited number of options.
Oh and anyone who puts their phone in a case/cover etc must had it back immediately.
On top of that I still think WTF every time I see the pastel colours on iOS, can't wait to see how much they don't bother designing a working UI on the Watch and just use the BUTTON on the side.....
My thinking is that if the US enact this type of thing as law then they are saying that they are more than happy for any other country to do the same to them.
Therefore all those countries they claim are conducting cyber attacks just need a court in their own country to ok it and its no longer an attack but a legal search for information......
Oh the slippery slope approaches....
There fixed it for you
Its easy, just make films etc that people other than French people want to watch in English and you have a chance.
Otherwise your a niche industry and thats it.
When someone who could be Prez will give all the info to everyone on the web.
Putin, IS et al must be drooling at the thought.
One of the nicest phones I have ever held was the HTC 8X but I had to get rid of it due to lack of certain apps I needed that were not available at the time.
Might look for a good one now if it will get windows 10 upgrade.
A minion shapped car ?
Change the colour to the correct yellow and I wil buy one
Or silverlight to stream content etc etc
You want bigger numbers ?
How about Windows 95, Windows 97, Windows 2000.
Makes Windows 10 look real old . . .
What ? ? ?
It will include a start button in version 10.1 ?
Please at least read a little before you comment. It has a start button that will show standard windows programs AND app tiles at the same time........
Where the hell are you above getting the sbscription / its only free for a year idea from ?
Read the article and others etc and see things like this
"Also on Wednesday, Microsoft’s vice president of operating systems Terry Myerson said once a Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, Microsoft will continue to keep it current for the supported lifetime of the device “at no cost”.
Lookie, "At No Cost". I have read every article here and several other places and the only time subs are mentioned its in the comments section.
Please stop spreading unfounded rumor unless you can post a quote from a high level Microsoft emplyee stating otherwise.
You don't need them unless you have XP and can't find a copy of 7 to upgrade to.
10 ? the default best option will be a sort of 7 lookalike desktop and spartan is just chrome done by MS.
Save time and money, stick with the current OS unless XP for support or 8/8.1 for better UI and install chrome.
Or better yet buy a chromebook and use that
about this TBH, I use chrome as it syncs with my phones and tablet chromebook and pc perfectly, same reason I use gmail for all my mail accounts, yeh I know but I do nothing Google or anyone else would be interested in and I use IE for banking etc so it never sees any but a couple of sites. If there was a better vpn than Hola (works with andoid phone, tablet, chromebook and chrome browser for US netflix etc) that was also free I would use another browser however chorme is the default forme now.
Well I for one only buy a device if I can root it and install a ROM of choice.
Top of the list of options when picking a ROM is zero bloat, ie no Farcebook or Twatter.
Currently running cyanogenmod 12 and love the lack of social crap.
I wonder if with so much cloud and virtual server useage in enterprise systems they will start to look at the old dumb terminal approach using something more on the lines of a chromebook or simiar in place of the laptop.
Given the choice I for one would rather just have to maintain the server farm and not worry about the devices out there that the user prefers to use, ie a tablet or phablet etc instead of a PC.
No more windows except for some of the servers, lovely....
Hardly as Virgin offer Netflix as an extra on their service that doesn't impact on your broadband at all.
Not one of you has mentioned it.....
The big warning about the interweb and identity theft.......
Sandra Bullock and THE NET
Yes it should be in capitals, the idea that via the internet they can do what they did . . . Boy was that a joke
I am more than happy to have weak encryption as the standard allowed.
But only if it is the standard that is used by all, that includes governments, banks, other businesses, the mitary etc etc.
After all people who demand strong encryption must be hiding something and quite possible breaking the law. So I am willing to have the same standard as used by the government and yourself or that you lower yours down to what you expect me to have.
All i can think is WTF......
I have a security risk on my software/OS ?
OK is there a fix ? great thanks....
What the fuck do you mean I have to wait for it till you can be bothered to give it to me. I want to be able to download and install it now.
Windows Update allows me to decide what to install when and Sysadmins have the same rights for all their kit so whats the problem ?
MS you are big enough to be able to manage this as having all your updates / fixes posted the day you complete them. There is no reason I can see for needing to wait up to a month for a security fix.
So WTF is the reason for making me wait ?
ITS HATCHING . . . . .
Quite simply I don't give a sit if you are throttled downloading illegle content.
Oh yeh I know I know you are downloading hundreds of gigs of linux distros and game demos etc. Do you think I was born yesterday ?
I call bullshit on all heavy P2P users who doownload much more than they upload. The best way to go is to limit speed on P2P during those times most people want to stream legal content etc ie evenings and weekends to maybe 10%.
This would mean I could watch iPlayer content without buffering and HD content on Netflix rather than crap quality just so you can take the piss and download illegaly at speed.
Oh and the get what you pay for comments are unbeleivable, you are downloading illegal content for gods sake not legal content. If it was just legal stuff then overnight or a few gig a month would be enough.
What I want is to have a good enough service to do what I want when I want, ie if playing games great speed and low latency, whatching video streams, HD content if available and so on.
Now que the downvotes......
Snowden ? given a job of trust, most likely signed agreements and official secrets forms etc. Then proceeded to steal documents and release them to the world.....
Nope don't trust him but do agree with what he did.
ISIS, terrorists yes but more likely to be truthful most if not all the time as extreem religeous conviction usually includes don't lie. However I still don't trust them to be truthful all the time.
GCHQ etc, nah don't trust them at all as its their remit to lie all the time, ie deny everything and divert attention etc etc. " GCHQ sir ? never heard of it "....
So most dangerous, at the moment its between GCHQ, NSA etc undermining trust in the government and feeding the nutters who are survivalist in the USA etc and ISIS who; lets be honest; have enough to do in Iraq to bother me in the UK. Plenty of others to worry about though.
I have no problem with them spying on people etc but ONLY if there is a REAL reason and not to gather data en mass or check up on their partner/spouce etc...
Ask any fanbois and they will tell you its only Android that's open to malware.
Therefore their iphone is impossible to infect so this story is just made up by Apple haters.
Its one reason they are happy with the walled garden, its totally safe from the worlds nasties.....
However, Apple still owns the lion's share of the market, with iPads comprising nearly one in three tablets sold, said IDC.
Shipments sank by 12.8 per cent to 12.3m in the third quarter of 2014, compared with the same period last year. Meanwhile, the global tablet market grew by 11.5 per cent to 53.8m.
According to my maths thats slightly less than 23%. since when was that 1 in 3, its not even a full 1 in 4....
#Apple CEO #Tim_Cook says he is "proud to be gay" That's the beginning of the extinction for the west civilization. Thanks Allah we r Muslims
— Dr.mohammed alhakeem (@mahir55555) October 30, 2014
Both times my reaction was "What a tool" so the west is doomed because of this? To which I say "Thank God I am not a homophobic pratt but someone who can spell are..."
Oh and didn't I read somewhere that many people who are homophobic are insecure about their own sexuality or is that as stupid as being homophobic / racist / genderist / ageist etc etc....
Don't forget the tax breaks Google got from Motorola as well
And Forbes thinks its only $1.5 Billion http://www.forbes.com/sites/timworstall/2012/12/22/did-motorola-mobility-only-cost-google-1-5-billion/ if so Google made a nice profit and got a load of patents as well.
Do I need an e-reader ?
Would I buy one ?
Yes if there was one with a 10 or 12 inch display and not too expensive.
Because I read a lot but the tablet is good enough for home use etc, but it would be nice to take a collection of books with me any time I am off on holiday etc....
Come on, wheres the fashion angle, we all know thats more important than tech to Apple
