Interesting. I was wondering whether to upgrade my phone to a bigger screen or keep it and buy the new Nexus 7 instead and tether it via bluetooth.
Depending when this VLP comes out, it may well be an option.
Re: 9 out of 10 ???
No, it's "It's".
I'd really like to see Facebook get fucked.
That's me fixed for my old age then.
"The CPU is a 1.5GHz penta-core Nvidia Tegra 3 unit"
Penta's five, innit? That would make it one core too many.
I'm waiting for the price of the console and the games to come down (I'll be wanting to buy the games on a memory card and boxed so I have a printed paper manual) but it won't be long before Vita-to-Micro SD converters are available on eBay.
I'm going to carry on using Lastpass.
What a knob.
Not everyone is working indoors at the same time. I happen to enjoy outdoor persuits and a minute-by-minute forcast helps because you can plan and adapt what you'll need to wear/take with you by predicting what the weather will do by using current predictions!
"The Best of the Reg 2011 pulls together some of El Reg' best writing on the biggest topics of the year, laced with some of its funniest. It costs £5.74, less than a turkey dinner, AND you'll still want to look at it after Boxing Day."
No, the funniest thing is that it costs £5.74.
Anything at all is more than I'd pay.
I reckon I could do that but would want another 200k-250k
I'm with the Itialians on this one.
Climate change minister?
WTF? Not only is that a waste of money right there, but you'd think they'd be happy to save energy or are they more worried about losing a job that's superfluous anyway?
BTW, I upvoted your post.
I'm not in IT, in fact I'm a lorry driver and so you could put me in the "thick" bracket but the fact it's on blogspot as well, for christ's sake. BTW, I'm quite sure I work longer hours than a lot of you over-paid muppets as well so yes, people are thick and ill-informed. The only thing I regret is mentioning it to them and then having to explain something they'll never get in a thousand years.
And the rest. More like earth-mooned size. Not that I'm an expert..
And if you buy either of those brands, it's you that's paying for the lawyers in inflated product costs.
Well we're at 52 degrees north so I'll be out in the garden watching for it if it's going to be bright enough to get through London's light pollution or else I'll take a week off and bugger off somewhere darker and take a quality pair of binos.
Nice to have lots of spacey articles recently
Seems like an expensive way to send a whole cheese into space when they could take some in their hand luggage,
What gets me
Is that they have to be very lucky where the rover lands. I mean they can put it pretty much where they want but it'd be like some alien race plonking a rover down here in the middle of the harshest desert where nothing could live versus say, a temperate part of the world where life thrives currently but would be gone when said aliens want to explore. If there was/is/could be life on Mars in the future then they've got a strike gold as if were and get it in exactly the right place.
Personally, I'm sick of hearing about this. Put Ozzy Osbourne in charge and give out free bags of class a. It might not heal the so-called debt crisis but it'll stop them banging on about it and it'll make me feel less confrontational as well.
It's more likely to be a martian ghoul than any hf earthquake-causing activity though there's deffo some sort of energy at work here.
Am I better off with the latest Cyanogen on my Desire?
Where's the link..
To Jeremy Kyle?
I reckon they deserve each other.
Good idea in theory but..
You'd need to want an electric car and you'd have to have a vacant charging spot when you get there or you could be waiting a very long time or run out of power looking for another one.
Petrol is still a lot more convenient.
It's about time
It went automatic; When the trains and stations go automatic, Bob Crow and his cronies will have nothing to hold us to ransom with, which if I didn't know different, is the real reason they're going uproar again.
There's a page on XDA developers that explains exactly what it's for.
You can be punched or be punched in the head by just about anybody by drinking less than half of that and the best part is, you won't remember a bvloody thing about it until some either reminds you of it or you wake up with a cracking headache and a painful face.
One of the best things on TV and one of the only things I'll go out of my way to watch.
It sounds pretty clear to me
When they say "While we’re excited to offer these new features to Android tablets, we have more work to do before we can deliver them to other device types including phones. Until then, we’ve decided not to release Honeycomb to open source." In other words, when it gets released to phones they'll open it up.
A poor troll by an Apple Fanboi.
RE: Response to sad, lazy post #
AC said:" "Ridden on the footpath/sidewalk past the age of 8"
I've no idea what your point is? I wish I could walk down the pavement out side my house without having to avoid all of the ILLEGALLY driven and parked cars on the pavement."
Move somewhere less pikey.
It took me a few goes and while the download looked stalled, it did eventually go on.
They're terrible. Who would honestly buy and eat one if there was a better alternative?
Good to see
iOS taking a tumble and Android picking up but I'd feel slightly dirty if I knew the Apple brigade had found an OS that I liked.
Cure for baldness
I'll believe it when I see it; which probably won't be in my life time.
"You are free to leave"
Except I won't because their quality of service has been pretty much spot on and their prices aren't outrageous when you consider the alternatives.
This is great
As Anon 16 said, more of the same.
I'm with you there
"So O2's free Wi-Fi network really is free at the point of delivery, and we can probably put up with receiving a text message every time we try to use it, though if that turns out to be every time we walk past a store offering O2's branded access then it could get too annoying to tolerate."
It sounds like a nightmare in the making what with constant connections/disconnections, SMS, MMS (not that they'll) track you everywhere and also O2 lets you use the Cloud for free on a wi-fi and data tariff but is that still the case now that Sky have bought it (the cloud).
Personally, I've never been able to get past the landing page on any of their so-called free offerrings and I'm considering if this is as bad as I think.
I use No Script and I'm invincible.
RE: A little harsh..
When was the last time you used a proper phone? The last decent phone Nokia made was the 3210.
Do me a favour...
Even my crappy Symbian phone had 3g and cut'n'paste[sic] with third party apps in 2007. I always thought of the iPhone to be the one that was lacking and lagging behind.
I wonder if this will go as smoothly as the other "upgrades" they've done in the past before throwing a spaz?
