When The iPhone was released...
I was shocked.
I remember saying "HP are gonna sue their asses"
I guess HP felt that Apple stealing the 'i' from iPaq for use on the 'i' in iPhone was not a strong enough case. It's a shame Apple don't have their sense of shame.
Which setting do I need to choose...
Which setting do I need to choose to block Page 3 of the Sun and the Daily Mail Sidebar of shame. Also I'd like to block any pictures or Theresa May? Is this possible?
While we are at it how about blocking any leaked Tory speeches prior to 2010?
Re: MS WINDOWS 8.1 UPDATE - ZERO DAY EXPLOIT?
They do that a lot these days, making you say Yes to say No.
So is there a huge gaping security hole?
MS have had almost as many U-turns as Cameron this year.
Re: From a Nexus 4 owner
I never found it to be slippery, my previous phone (Nexus S) was far more devious when attempting to escape my hand.
I did worry about the glass back and got a case for it pretty soon though.
Facebook didn't post it, it was one of their users.
Can we one day have a PM who gets the Internet?!
I never liked the fiddly little Start Menu of old, the Win8 start menu is way more spacious and organised.
Just one thing bothers me... How do I remove the Start button? It reminds me of the bad old days....
Re: Instinct over IQ
Snide or not those comments are indicative how a lot of people perceive both brands. The opening comment was exactly what I expected to see when I clicked comments, and it still made me laugh.
For me Apple's brand slipped when they released the first iPhone, it had less features than my Sony Ericsson of the time, I felt it didn't live up to the my experience of their computers.
I'd never heard of Burberry before the chavs made it famous. :)
Re: Save XP
Correct you could opt for XP until 2010 but the end of life date was known by then.
Still has the queen in it
Refusing to swear to her was how I finally stopped going to the play-football-in-a-hall rather than learn something club and was finally able to watch Tomorrows World on a Thursday evening. :)
So for those of us with slave drivers as bosses
Will a download be available?
Re: Good idea
>> Let's be honest 'at work' doesn't have to be that accurate
Maybe you don't want the phone on vibrate when you are waiting outside for the bus (we don't all drive).
Re: So if I live in Barnsley
I see a new use for this! :)
...don't get thanked, have you not seen the news lately?
Mine too. Not a problem...
Re: It will
It's not about capitalist/childish dreams of have the biggest, best or most expensive.
Re: UK vs Euro pricing
Why anyone would vote your comment down is beyond me. Google is a company like any other, there to squeeze every last penny they can from us. OK in the past they haven't done the Microsoft/Apple trick of charging the same number in different currencies but then again they haven't really charged for much so far.
I'll stick with Grooveshark.com, being an early adopter of their subscription model netted me a special rate of $30 per year. And they will answer your emails.
Re: US only?
Of course it's only a problem if your SIM is an old 56-bit DES encrypted one.
Re: Techies hitting the beach perhaps...
Almost exactly what I was thinking. It could just be that XP is still big on home PC's, July is summer, people on staycations and wfh will be on these dust buckets more often.
As they don't pay their taxes...
Should the Met send them a bill?
Re: So we can disable the laugh track.
Yup, or add and remove and component part. Say you want to remove the ticker from BBC News. Mr Orlowski seems to have avoided writing about any benefits and focussed solely on attacking the BBC as usual.
I read the whole article and thought something wasn't right, when I saw the author I realised it was an Orlowski classic. ;)
They are not ISP's they are NOISP's
Can't we settle this like Champagne and sparkling wine?
If you supply a connection to the whole Internet you are an ISP.
If you supply a connection to some online services but not others you are a twat, err I mean Nonspecific Online Internet Services Provider. AKA a NOISP...
A reward for the Pirates then!
You aren't buying the media if it has DRM.
What's the point in twice the speed if there is an unfair use policy?
Re: Maybe Not..
Mine too but I stuck with it and after a couple of months it was better than ever. T-Mob have had good 3G for about 2 months now in my bits of London.
I read the first chapter of this rant. Clearly the Prof has something or someone to protect.
Us cyclists also remove a large number of fine particulates from the air you breathe by trapping them in our lungs. Come the revolution motorists will be attached to their exhausts to act as air filters too. ;P
No one wants to download X factor rubbish?
Yawn... Can't we just have the facts in a nice little table?
Four in the morning!
Re: So, nothing legal is getting close to ThePirateBay yet.
CORRECT! TPB has the best service of the three.
The exclusive deals are the problem, some stuff will be on one and the rest on the other. The chasing of more money rather than more audience appears to be the motivation.
Love Film is lacking in stream-able content whenever you find something good it's only available on DVD. I prefer Netflix as it doesn't get my hopes up only to crush them by saying I have to 1, pay more and 2, wait for a DVD to get lost in the post.
Re: Supports the QI Standard
The Nokia charge mats don't supply enough current and result in charging switching off and on, off and on.
The Maxell works well on my Nexus4 and the battery life is great. 30% remaining most evenings.
Yup, Freeview will work perfectly on any 625 line TV if you can connect it, you can even get Freeview HD boxes that down convert to an RF output. :D
Re: That's the price you pay...
Totally agree. You'll be moaning about the cost of travelling to London by train next!
If you want better speeds try BE internet, they let you change the speed profile yourself.
Shit, I've just installed 2012 of five servers, will they be as much as a disaster as Newham Council now?? Will they start evicting people from the Carpenters Estate? Will they buy super expensive chandeliers and facial recognition systems that don't work???? Tell me now!!
Show us we can trust you with this power, then we will think about it... The Anti-Terrorism act was massively miss-used.
Sinofsky was also absent from the Windows 8 launch, after showing it off for months I found that a bit strange at the time. I guess we know why now.
Overpriced Apple dealers
I'm surprised they lasted this long.
Re: Howexactly is this an iPad clone?
It's a clone because the specs are way behind the competition, the lowres screen seen in this and the ipadmini would be laughed at by the likes of HTC, Motorola and Samsung.
On the other hand it's not a clone because the price actually matches the specs.
