Acer Iconia W3: The first 8-inch Windows 8 Pro tablet

Wang N Staines

Got an ARM based Samsung Chromebook on sale last month for £129, installed Linux on it. What a brilliant little machine. If Acer/MS want to compete they may have to up the specs or lower the price.

The screen on this Acer not too impressive at all.

When to say those three little words: 'I am quitting'

sure sign

of things are not going well over the garden wall - the last PR stunt on the day of the launch of the S4 and this desperation of design by Steve crap are a sure sign of shit hitting the proverbial at Apple.

2 consecutive year losses ... a year after, sold assets and cut jobs - a miracle, it turns a profit with a massive cash injection from its backer. Apple and Samsung need to learn from Nokia.

Microsoft to end Windows 8 discounts on January 31

Wang N Staines

This is not a troll. My laptop is a Dell Inspiron, bought it 2 weeks ago ... my broadband is 100M with VM.

Starting any apps taking ages with the circular dots going round and round ... after a minute or so the app starts.

I had installed VS2012 ... starting it takes ages. However, once started then it's as responsive my Win7 laptop (2nd gen i5, 4GB RAM ... Lenovo).

There are privacy laws in the UK that will protect you from this, however because Facebook is a US company it'll be tricky. We'll see when this comes to the UK court, I suspect quite soon.
