Amazon sets date for Kindle Touch UK touchdown

Trollface

Re: Kobo & Sony

Not sure what you mean by "tied to a single provider" - I can read eBooks from any of the open sources on my Kindle, no problem at all. Sounds like trolling to me...

Bonkers. If I wear a t-shirt saying "I hate you" will I get arrested too?

George Lucas rattles lightsabre at Jedi laser firm

Cylindric
Stop

Sorry for breaking the trend and not jumping on the bandwagon but...

Lucas isn't claiming to own all lasers, or contest their creation of all devices not much more reminiscent of a Lightsaber than a torch - so all you Geostationary Satellite folks can get a grip and calm down.

This is a design thing - if you make a device and design the appearance of it to be exactly like a Lucas Lightsaber, then you're in the wrong. So yes, if you invent a robotic protocol robot, but make it look exactly like C-3PO, you'll be in trouble too.

Why can't we all just get along?

On Android I use the "Sensorly" app to do this stuff for me automatically. Why can't all the operators kind of just chip in and use the same data? Oh wait... is it because they don't want us to know that their "awesome signal strength" maps are all made up?

USB

Haha! Oh yes. I'm sure these machines will have a little USB socket in the front, and a "print" button in the scanning application.

I don't think it's quite as simple as hooking up a £30 printer from Argos...
