Last macbook pro I had was one from 2010 - Is there still
1) no way to turn that terrible start up noise off? (apart from the vol down - very inconvenient)
2) that horrible clunky trackpad that makes a horrible clunk every time you click it?
Macbook air screen has stayed at 2010 spec i see. I'm on a nearly 2yo asus ultrabook with a better screen spec (1600x900). No upgrade from me until they upgrade the screen.
aaah so thats the real reason ebay won't let you
send email addresses through there messaging system. They saw it coming.
Best Products, Best services...
But massively overpriced and a horrible company.
<Smug mode> I'm typing this on asus ux31e 13", 1600x900, i7, SSD oh and win 7x64. picked up for £660 2months back in a pcworld sale. and will get 60quidco back. I believe I have the bargain of the century for a true ultrabook.
If you can find one go for last years asus instead
Jailbroken apple tv2 is the best device out there right now. I have a piss3, obnox360 to compare to. No contest it wipes the floor with them. Just need firecore and xmbc or plex or what u like. millions of channels, some pirate for free.
is there ever going to be a service pack 2 for windows 7? With clean installs this is getting very silly
was actually more - you forgot his two months paypacket at around 60k so total for two months was £510k.
Which is outrageous for a public sector job.
I know this isn't android but the same quality issues exist there too. Google really dropped the ball by not developing there own media solution and letting the worst company in the world do it instead.
The register in comets closing down sale? Vulture central.
Re: been wating
1600x900 on 13.3" here on the zenbook
pcworld/Currys had a good sale of win7 laptops to clear the way.
I picked up a zenbook for £650. (35% off) Needed to get it before win8 came along anyway.
I'm guessing comet might have a few too.
Re: Flash on Android 4?
Can't keep up with it too!
I think these are updates so only available thru google play if you have it already?
I also think you can still sideload flash?
Someone correct me if I'm wrong! (like I need to ask that here.....)
I work in Mobile apps and have tested apps on most of these devices.
Whats most important to me is the quality of the screen and how the device feels in the hand.
Motorola Xoom2= POS
Playbook= Antiques roadshow POS
Kindle Fire= Amazon content delivery system. Plus I believe they track all your browsing through MIMO.
Note 2= Best Phablet.
Nexus 7= The best Tablet by miles.
Not tested or had my hands on the rest or ipad mini yet. Hope this helps.
Possibly the worst thing you could be associated or charged with
and they pay £20k damages?? You would probably get more from the council tripping up over a broken flag...
Had iPad moved over to Galaxy Tab
Its all about form factor and weight for me - the galaxy tab is half the weight of the ipad and its form factor is the same as a kindle - so ok to hold in one hand. I returned the ipad after 1 week - way too heavy and akward for me and much more girlfriend friendly as can keep one hand on her!!!
I'm enjoying the galaxy so far - its nice to have another os to play with. The ebook reader on it is perfect (my kindle 3 is going to my better half) and I've not had any problems with it so far. I guess it depends on usage. I turned off the 3g so that has increased the battery life significantly.
I seem to be getting at least 7 hours out of it.
I use it on the sofa and next to the bed - the ipad was too big to do this.
Big phone? yes some of it might be but I'm getting old and can't look at my iphone 4 screen for too long! I like being able to browse the full websites and flash has been ok on it.
BTW I just noticed the tab has had its price reduced its now £399 at amazon. With price erosion like this it will be £200 come february!
Actually the AVR 4311 AV receiver

hmmm not true - there are in it for the ego trip first
MPs pay is NOT a reflection of the role, as let's face it, every single MP is in it for the fame and publicity, not for the money
hmmm not true - there are in it for the ego trip first then the huge amount of money they can get afterwards using the connections they have made. Thats why camerons 5% pay cut is just a PR move.
Your information is safe in the hands of 7 corporations
..... and no wonder it costs so much with all of it outsourced....
Personal responsibility in the UK?!
B) TAKE SOME FUCKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR CHANGE AND NOT LET THEM HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR CHEELDREN.
Totally agree. But personal responsibility? This is the UK............. sadly you, me and a few others are in the miniority.
ITV HD=most other channels SD?!
ITV seems to be particulalrly bad SD... so now this means there upto most other channels SD in terms of quality?! :)
