Thanks for this.
I'm an American traveling to France and Ireland over Christmas and new years. I have an unlocked GSM Nexus 5 that I plan on using while I am travelling. I don't need a lot of minutes and text is handled by hangouts. What I really need is data service. What networks (or single network) serve my data needs most cost competitively? I'm not well versed in the roaming deals between those 2 countries.
No issues here with my steam library on my older gaming rig
Plug N Play and a fancy new background made with FREAKIN LAZORSSSS.
but seriously I am upgrading day 1....pray/drink for me
Normally I would agree. I'm more concerned with persons who magically manage to create a new desktop and wonder where all their apps that they had open went. Luckily a quick explanation of ctrl + Win + L arrow or crtl + Win + D should resolve it...once I explain that yes they hold down the first 2 keys then tap the 3rd, what the win key looks like (yes, I do work in IT for an engineering company), get frustrated, remote in and do it myself, finally going to my calendar to schedule a beating for the GPO guy for not reversing this setting.
I the not normal tech person really like virtual desktops, not sure I have the fortitude yet to support it.
It is configurable. There is a setting available to reverse the this view so all open apps are visible on all taskbars.
Don't forget about the Law Enforcement mandated easy decryption
Might as well dust off your XP box as well then, you know since it turns on and doesn't do that transparency magic in the UI.
Tbf I read El Reg while on the phone since it is usually more interesting than whatever problem my user has claimed to not cause.
you must be real fun at parties. At least MS is trying something.
And corn, lots of corn. Do not forget the post apocalyptic city if Gary. But yes you are not missing anything.
i got O365 for free when I bought Office 2013 pro using my companies (massive) discount. It turns out since I am in school, and Office for android was release not long after, I have really taken advantage of the cloudy features of Office. Since I do most of my schoolwork in Excel, for reasons that are not relevant here, it makes it easy to do the work at home and then have it checked and graded on my phone at school. In short I like was MS is doing with Office and I wish them the best of luck.
They addressed that when 9929 was released. They know that devices without batteries are showing batteries with 0% charge. I would imagine that will be addressed in the next update....hopefully
I am cautiously optimistic about their future model for windows. Adopting a wait and see etc
This was more in the vain of the early 90's when NJ gave Verizon buckets of cash to wire the state and 20 years later (last year) when they tried to get out of the agreement because it was hard to wire the state.
how well that worked for them, you know, the cash giveaway to Verizon
Would be nice but LAUSD is looking for a more drop in and be done with it portable solution. Also something that garners favor with the vendors I'm sure.
I was annoyed when I first heard about the ipad deployment since it was essentially no-bid, 2nd when in the trial run the students "hacked" the devices by deleting the MDM profiles so they could browse facebook and install apps.
-Annoyed Los Angeles resident.
that Russia and Saudi Arabia fuck off and build their own internet if they are so concerned. Better yet those are not the a fore mentioned countries should cut their peering links till R and SA think better about their proposals.
MS's recent numbers seem to contradict your comment. Are their devices achieving the success that Apple devices receive? No. Is there growth in their lines? Yes. As a frequent reader of many tech news sites (El Reg, you are still my fav), I see even techcrunch, who constantly has their olfactory organ squarely up Apples' posterior, even praising MS for what they are doing with their various hardware lines. In short MS is selling hardware and shocks of shocks someone is actually buying.
TBF I do want a Surface 3.
That trick they pulled with the surface 3 where it switches between tablet and desktop depending on the presence of a keyboard, that is all I wanted. Win 8 has been really solid for me but the touch UI goes unused even though I have a touchscreen laptop. At least I know my important keyboard shortcuts so its largely a non-issue for me.
In the city of El Segundo just outside of Los Angeles. Also screw Comcast...you know, for relevance.
use windows 8.1, not generic x64
So you clicked express settings during the setup rather than customize and turning it all off. And there is an option to create a local account only.
You sir, yes you...I owe you one beer!
I left the yellow bastards for T-mo and their actually functioning network. Looks like it is time for me to write several more opposition letters to the FCC, DoJ, elected representatives, etc
even though the doctrine used was designed to crash the server. Where else can you have fights like this.
Are not designed to be repaired but there are design considerations taken for assembling. Repairs are a dealership/ mechanic problem
Remember that Big Red is just one carrier in one country where Apple offerings are relatively more robust in the marketplace. There is a larger market that must be taken into consideration
You can take my TIE fighter disc from my cold dead hands
Debian cause I don't have issues with it. Even got the Nvidia drivers to install correctly once I got the dependencies installed. Same with VMware. Got it running in dual boot on my desktop, running as a daily driver on my 5 yo laptop and netbook. Very happy with it so far.
Really trying to shoehorn the open sauce in this article
troll troll harder
They all have issues. How about we use an updated paper map and common sense when navigating to places.
Chrome syncs my pages from the desktop to desktop to laptop to phone and to tablet. Pictures are auto sync'd to G+ ( yes I do use it). You should know the kindle app. And news is done with pulse, currents, and flipboard which of course sync respectively between devices and come with handy tablet friendly UI's. And of course this is all syncing between a Xoom, gnex, and N4.
And my favorite part.
"well I sign into my mac and all my stuff downloads and syncs" as a recent convert to Apple told me recently. My response being "If I sign into gmail then all my stuff is there too, no synching required." Their response: "...".
I know I'm tied to El Goog but at least I know what they are doing with my data.
Being an Android user I am finding that there are a larger quantity of higher quality apps available that I am willing to part with a few dollars over. Also to be fair discover-ability is bad on the play store but the "People who looked at this also viewed...." list becoming more relevant...at least to my untrained eye.
step 4: charge entry into said lot under penalty of 6000 BB's wrecking the paint on your new car. You know from the comfort of office with that 3g connection.
I believe there are a number of railroads here in the USA that send or have sent signaling data for block and moving block signaling through the tracks.
Indeed that would be great but they spun that business off years ago. I have to wonder why though considering I have my fathers HP financial calc from the 70's and it is fabulous to this day even though it takes batteries
As a person who supports the abortion that is Lotus Notes. I want to know why it has to fight with Adobe Acrobat with calling the user32.dll and then crashing....and deleting mail files.....causing calls to come my general direction.
Slight correction, it went on sale a little after 8:30 AM PST and the ordering system has been up and more times than a prostitute at a frat party.
its a silly time killer of a game. It just happens to be one of the really good ones. It went viral a few years ago ( I sentence myself to 30 lashings for using viral ) when it gained critical mass and also had a movie tie in created for it.
whew, I'm glad Im not the only one with those issues. I thought it was caused by me running chrome off a thumbdrive and the USB access times were poo. Yes Google please fix the 2 errors they said
The OEM's could release timely updates if they would stop screwing with the UI and underlying components that they have to upgrade for each release.
well I guess the answer comes down to money and the will to do it. Dunno about the UK but the LADWP is (what they tell us) broke.
Ahh yes just like Adult swim used to do(possibly still does, i don't have cable) for their schedule info
Saw no retina
will not recommend
Looks like it is time to extend my epeen
*switches tab to newegg
But my solution, much to my chagrin, was to limit myself to one box small box for my computer detritus. I moved into an apartment with my girlfriend which has some limited storage options. Funny enough she of course did not get rid of nearly the amount of stuff I did. It would appear that I had held onto every computer, router, switch, and associated cable I had procured over the last decade. I drive a pickup truck and it filled the bed taking this stuff to the recycler sans hard drives of course. Now I am down to:
1 HP laptop (read: desktop replacement with built in battery backup)
1 spare body for said HP laptop
1 media PC
assorted android phones
1 very tightly packed rubbermaid container holding my cables, mounting hardware for the desktop, 10 pack of floppy disks, various backup CD-ROMs, and a spare router and ethernet cables.
I am going to try to see it after work and snap some photos if I can
