> Who knows when Microsoft will release it?
Tried on my 1320 for a few days (as opposed to just a few hours last time I checked it out). Overall, I like what I'm seeing. The new phone app, the added functionality in Cortana, the calculator and the music player, all looking very promising. But I do need my call+SMS filters, quiet hours and weather on the glance screen. Also, I need battery life and a phone that doesn't heat up like crazy. And the My Account app from T-Mobile US (and a few other apps) didn't work anymore. Lenses aren't supported yet either, and I really can't live without custom ring and text tones. But there's nice progress and I think once RTM time comes around, it will all be fixed, right? Right? For now, I went back to 8.1.

...to disable Apple Music as soon as it popped up in iTunes. There's only so much entertainment one can take, especially since we're talking about a service here that will analyze your tastes and preferences, and then will force-feed you Taylor Swift.
If anything, I'd buy a gun holster that looks like a cellphone case.
Exactly what you're doing here, except on a massive scale and a plethora of subjects.
> Then their "Wi-Fi Sense" goes and shares my password with Microsoft,
No, it doesn't.
That's why it IS off by default.
WiFi Sense doesn't actually give other people your WiFi password. It only shares it with devices. And only if you tell it to, and only to people you want it to share with.
Not male and white! The horrah! The horrah!
The 1320, at least the Latin American country variant I have, already has 1GB of RAM.
On one hand, the Yaris is reliable and economical and has features I haven't had in a car before, like working A/C and in-dash GPS. On the other hand, I wish the damn thing would just dissolve already so I can get back into a car that's not torture to sit in.
Oh! Is that what I'm supposed to do with it? Here I am downloading stuff willy-nilly, convert it with handbrake, drop it into iTunes and then watch it on the big TV screen. It also does Netflix and Hulu streaming, but the video quality is a lot better streaming it from the XBox One. Oh, and the free HBO Go activation I found somewhere.
Water based latex paints are perfectly fine these days for all indoor and most outdoor applications,
Your 15 minutes have been up a decade ago
I ditched my iPad after buying a Lumia 1320.
Either way, Handbrake requires neither VLC nor VNC. But it helps if you have the Perian codecs installed even though development of the latter has stopped years ago.
Paintbrush for Mac.
Maybe if Peter Dinklage and Verne Troyer could be coaxed to have a ride-along, presumably at gun point.
"Lumia 535 comes in two flavors: 3G Single SIM, or 3G Smart Dual SIM". Otherwise it would be a proper successor to the 520.
...for a better endorsement.
It's hilarious that T-Mobile Germany is seen as the crusty ole dinosaur and T-Mobile US has the image of the spry young innovative start-up that will go places.
The notification center is in _addition_ to the live tiles, and the quickly access often used settings.
Because traffic. If the regular route normally takes 20 minutes, but suddenly shows four times that, it's time to pick the alternate route which takes 40 minutes, which I is why don't take that route normally.
Too late, Apple. Windows Phone already has driving mode, which lets the user decide and select in advance if he wants his phone send a canned reply to text messages and still route phone calls through the car speakers, or ignore all distractions, etc. Pretty nifty, actually.
Because I can't see where it offers anything, other than access to Amazon's catalog, that the Apple TV doesn't offer already.
Viz., the Venue 7 and 8.
Sounds like my current job. Plus "could you fix the lights in the hallway please."
That's because these "internet cafés" aren't places where one would go and do some research on Wikipedia for instance or checks one's e-mail, but rather are very obviously fronts for illegal gambling for cash prizes. In the front section of the business, the discerning customer may purloin such essential computer hardware as CRT monitors, parallel port ZIP drives, ISA modems, or PS2 mices. In the backrooms, some redneck's mother-in-law is feeding her social security check into 30 year old arcade game for the chance to win tokens. Which in turn can be turned into cash.
These places /call/ themselves "internet cafés" and computer stores, but really are just fronts for illegal gambling and probably money laundering.

Eh? What's this I've got in my car then?
The whole world cries out, "Peace, Freedom, and a few less fat bastards eating all the pie."
Because T-Mobile USA was the only major American carrier that did not offer the iPhone yet, lagging behind telco behemoths like Alaska Wireless and BFE Telecom.
A, T-Mobile US is currently in the process of refarming their 3G/4G network to the 1900 Mhz band which will allow, for instance, an unlocked iPhone 3GS to connect to the net at 3G speeds.
See airportal.de for updates on the refarming process. Big cities like Dallas and Houston for instance are getting just slathered in 3G coverage as we speak
B, some people just want to have a nice phone and not pay an arm and a leg in monthly fees for the privilege.
Strange plan you've got there, Davey. I'm paying $30/month for unlimited data and texts, and 100 minutes of talk. Perfect for my usage pattern with T-Mobile US.

You quite sure about that, guv?
No, those silly pentalobe screws Apple is using in their laptops nowadays.
Author must be holding the cloud wrong, because iCloud actually does work. Funny how he didn't manage to come up with an actual example or usage case to demonstrate how it isn't working.
In comparison to former systems like Palm's HotSync and Microsoft's ActiveSync? Holy hell, does it work, and how.
Are we still doing that?
They're pretty much all f*ing retarded.
I've worked for Verizon Wireless, and while their "world" phones are, or can be, SIM lock-free, it only works outside of the US. You can't run what Verizon calls a worldphone (CDMA + GSM combo device, like certain Blackberrys and HTC devices) on a US carrier, even if it's got its SIM lock removed.
Preventing certain carrier IDs from being used regardless of SIM locks is super trivial to implement.
Conversely, you can't run an unlocked Euro iPhone 4s on Sprint or VZW either, because those are lacking the CDMA portion. You could run it on at&t, or, at GPRS/EDGE speeds, T-Mobile US.
And lastly, swapping a CDMA-enabled iPhone 4s between VZW and Sprint won't work either, because it's only the GSM portion that will be unlocked, whereas CDMA carriers tie the phone to the subscriber via ESN and MEID (electronic serial number and mobile equipment ID), and they do keep track of these, i.e. only equipment sold through the respective carrier will be allowed to connect to that carrier's network.
All this means is "you can put a foreign SIM into your VZW/Sprint iPhone 4s, removing the disadvantage US CDMA iPhones would have had compared to at&t ones." Don't read anything else into this.
Overall, being swallowed whole, and getting shat out at a random destination beats being made to show up at the airport 4 hours early for your TSA-mandated finger-bang, and having your bottle of diet coke confiscated for national security.
The point is, AdBlock Plus is THE add-on that makes Firefox the browser of choice for many, and makes the WWW usable.
Mail box. Front door. Car key. What else could there possibly be?
What are you smoking? There's no auto-run on OS X. The disk gets mounted, but that is all.
who's still using Hotmail using it for anything but a spam catcher?
I didn't see them anyway. OptimizeGoogle plug-in FTW.
Come home, Pantzy, come home!
...that this has caused quite the führer?
There are plenty of American brewski that are top notch and very tasty. But you won't get them for eight bucks a twelve pack. "B" isn't even the most foul of the major brands. That honor goes to Miller Light, which has all the flavor of a pus-encrusted band-aid (or "plaster" for you Brits) and none of its visual appeal.
IT angle? It's about BEER! There's your IT angle right there.
