From the sounds of it.... take 4K video... create 3K video, problem solved.
We recently moved out datacentre from Xerox to Azure solutions cutting the bill from $1.8m to little under $600,000 so these services are nothing to be scoffed at, the ability to spin up servers in seconds or have additional servers automatically spin up and down under load is a god send. We had to take a hit on licensing losing what we owned in perpetual licenses (some $300,000) in exchange and server costs but that will be recouped in the first six month's and office 365 is working out great for us as well
Arrives tomorrow, need a good camera for the holidays that's more point and shoot than the Canon. Plus the videos should be ok with the premium OIS not the cheapo HTC One OIS
I thought AVGN was already doing this? http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=eiz95K1ngiI
Re: It's sunny outside today
Buy a nokia
Best dumb phone
This is going to look good in my hand, roll on June, then I can hand over the S3 mini and Lumia 800 to the sisters kids
Easily smuggled onto a plane, 3D printing outlawed, good work dufus
None of the above
Nokia EOS will be my next phone in release. I may also go for a backup android if the Xbox music app is released by then.
Buy a vivobook then
Re: It runs Windows 8 and therefore is crap
Read what you said back to yourself... now... hang your head in shame... "Equally capable" I suppose this sort of idiocy was inevitable after opening the internet up to every Tom, Dick and Harry..
If you use windows media center
Buy the amulet voice remote for flawless speech control over tv, film and music. My blind parents have been using it for over 2 years and its the best speech implementation I've seen... Ever, check out my demo on YouTube search for "DIY speech enabled TV" you'll never go back to mashing buttons again or searching through lists for your films and tv series
The sooner we get back to RIM and Nokia running the phonesphere the better
If it doesn't allow cable or satellite input I don't care.
Re: tethering isn't new...
Depends on whether your carrier has enabled it.
Re: Xbox Music compatibility
It uses Zune for windows 7 and prior
That thing could come with a fresh turf in the box and the idiots will still buy it.
The revenge of Leroy jenkins
They should bring that back in this html5 era, it would be awesome for sales people
all very well made appa
I'm no android fanboi but patents blow, hold everyone back.
Re: Been in use for years...
so had rounded corners, didn't stop apple using their patents against numerous companies.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtRdwPuw1lk please check out this video of my voice controlled media centre made for my blind parents. it is used day in, day out flawlessly for over 2 years and makes their lives so much easier. Voice tech is so much quicker and easier when controlling media, you should all be using it!
My parents are both blind and voice control with media centre is a brilliant gift to them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtRdwPuw1lk such commands as copy DVD, play movie battleship, play artist Abba, record formation street next Wednesday on ITV, are all possible and faster than using any mouse or keyboard to find media. All set up for about £400
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtRdwPuw1lk and it all costs pittance
Re: Don't count them out yet
Microsoft Stepped in to save them too... I'm seeing a pattern here.
Windows 8 is amazeballs
look at these commentards... If you saw it, you'd be straight over there to mess with it. Stop being retards.
That it all
Screen stops responding all the time on mine... Makes me want to throw it against the wall. Its not about how many cores you have if your OS is poo
do it now!!!
You all need to use the amulet remote, it has no intelligence but makes you feel like your on the enterprise while using your tv. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtRdwPuw1lk
More of this until we are back to those big ass laptops :)
@tommy that features on all Nokia wp7 phones anywho
As a phone
If its anything like WP7 then its more responsive than android, has a better keyboard than iPhone and apparently has a great battery. The phone on WP7 is super fast although I would suggest the keypad is visible by default
I'll have red and blue or maybe yellow.. I'm into WP7, all my music comes through zunepass, which share the same account on both the WP7 phones (using the same email address) and is used in my parent home cinema and in my own home. I'll wait till November for the phone and buy them unlocked using the additional Nokia stocks I picked up during the price crash at the launch..
then I'll just have to wait for a pink and blue surface to arrive :)
Forgot to mention
My speech enabled media centre is.... Awesome!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?nomobile=1&v=UtRdwPuw1lk
I have Zune on two WP7 devices (using the same account when setup) my fathers media centre, my PC and Xbox... Great for £8.99 especially when you can download all you want... My only issue is that ministry of sound albums still have to be bought
Streaming radio services are crap, at least with zunepass and Spotify you can download and keep your music as long as you're subscribed.
Lol OpenGL? Why when they have a backlog of tens of thousands of DirectX games ready to be ported now that DirectX is available in WP8
look on youtube for the amulet remote
Maybe turning off the "find my phone" location service will sort out the tin hat paranoids? Seeing as that's the option you seem to be discussing.
Dear oh dear
Lol... "server", I think we all get the drift and i think El reg is once again showing it's bias... £900 for a slow, non redundent "server" that's nothing more than an expensive media server. I would consider it for a 5 user workplace if it was £300
Schmidt is at the bilderberg meetings today, he's obviously showing off how he can turn it off and one with a simple switch, prepare for mass net failures in the future
Blah Blah Blah
Same weather forecast that's predicted every year by the Linux crew... I think fish had a better success rate.
Ahhh El Reg
I see my replies are now being dismissed / censored / whatever. Very well El reg, I'm off, you're site and obviously now your moderators seem be a bunch of elitists passing judgments that sway to the minority rather than reporting to the majority, and of which the majority of who rarely know what the hell they are on about or what foundations today’s business is built on.
Just to clarify I enjoy reading and arguing the comments from other OS users and in some cases they raise valid points but I'm not staying around a place that censors my replies to validate my side of an argument,
Will you lot ever stop moaning. At least a windows OS doesn't need updating daily.... I'm talking to you "crappy crud" or whatever you're calling yourself these days.
Not when they are one of the same.
I am current working on a wind generator that produces 100W per square metre for £30, so don't worry everyone, I will save you all.
@ Why does it matter anyway?
Is that title a pun?
I thought XP goes legally for under $8 in China, what's the problem?
Why do google assume they can muscle in on everyone's site?
- Boffins attempt to prove the UNIVERSE IS JUST A HOLOGRAM
- China building SUPERSONIC SUBMARINE that travels in a BUBBLE
- Review Raspberry Pi B+: PHWOAR, get a load of those pins
- Experimental hypersonic SUPERMISSILE destroyed 4 SECONDS after US launched it
- That 8TB Seagate MONSTER? It's HERE... (You'll have to squint, 'cos there are no specs)
