How about the sister sites??? Anchor Exchange especially.
Interesting report. I enjoyed that. But what's happening at the sister sites in Birmingham and Manchester? Anchor is a site that melts any West Midland as they get close to home, yet it too is looking a bit bare. Worth checking out!
They can't. Nokia launched the smartphone with these features years ago so any challenge in court would go to Nokia.
Haven't we been here before...?
Seen this happen to Nokia. Slows down decision making and brings inbuilt financial inefficiencies. Being the richest does not necessarily meen being the best and vice versa.
Did Samsung ripoff Nokia too???????
it looks like Samsung hasn't just been allegedly(-prevent libel) ripping off Apple either. Check this story out... http://nokiapoweruser.com/2013/02/14/did-samsung-lift-bendable-screen-tech-from-nokias-component-orders-nokia-rumored-to-dump-samsung-as-supplier/
Why haven't they done a smartphone?
I'm actually surprised... Alienware has such a maverick design language, whey haven't they developed a smartphone or lent their name and design DNA to a mobile phone developer under license? Opportunity missed.... And what with WP8 featuring full integration with Windows 8/RT and XBox live the chance for Alienware to become a more integrated comms/gaming hub.
more updates from acompany that can't be arsed to develop its products properly.
yet another update to fix the flaws that they should have sorted before they released the product. The phone is supposed to be their flagship phone but from day one it has been a pile shit. I seriously LOVE the for factor and the fact that the joypad lets me play video games (unlike the mini or N900). But the user experience is shit. The processor is shit. And everything is sooooo slow. I have seen Symbian working ln a Cortex A8 and it's actually really effective. But NOKIA HAS NO CLUE HOW TO DO A GOOD GUI. They are good engineers fucking LOUSY DESIGNERS...
Until they sort this out, I will no longer buy another Nokia product.
DRMs discourage people from seeking legal channels.
Eh? Then that means I can't take my MP3's which reside on my SD cards, and use them in my car stereo. I see this as an EPIC FAIL if they want to prevent people stealing MP3s. The only way you can encourage people to buy their MP3s is to change the music business model. However there are still people that mistakenly believe that they can make music, thus make money. Nope. If you are professional musicians, then you need to look into other revenue streams. Merchandise, trademarking the band name, touring, proper marketting etc etc. This is where the money is at.
I will NEVER use DRM protected MP3s and will ALWAYS seek alternatives. Currently I buy all my MP3s from 7Digital where there is no DRM, and it will play on my mobile, my car stereo, my computer, ........
