Yes we do. Awesome is an English word - it's even used in traditional hymns.
Re: RT is pointless
Why is lack of a selfiecam an epic fail on budget phone?
Where do you get that number from, did you just make it up to look cool?
The average smartphone user reaches for their device more than 100 times per day
Re: Highly Likely
Since they don't officially number the iPad since the iPad2, my guess is you're wrong.
Kind of excited by an iPad5 though, every generation has been a big step up in CPU/GPU and I work on stuff which pushes the iPad to its limits.
And then everyone will simply un-tick it.
I think he means it would be a good way to transport Shepherd's Pie or Chilli con Carne.
Re: Deal of the century
If Dominos signed up to this (being the only pizza chain with the resources) that would be incredible.
Who cares if it's a really silly idea
It's proper SciFi and just plain cool.
Re: What could go wrong?
You should probably write to them, they probably never thought that it would be good if their drones din't fly into things.
Re: Oh, how cute.
If you spout ill-informed and badly argued rubbish, what do you expect?
Re: Author has never watched F1...
You misunderstand Conor. You frequently see SOMEONE gain 3 or 4 places but he is saying YOU can do this on a regular basis and that's not realistic unless you're Alonso. That should only be possible with a lot of practice in a more simulatoresque game, considering real F1 drivers often muff it up.
It seems to me FIFA is one game that would merit being sold on a subscription basis. £40 (or whatever) buys you in and then £10/year keeps it active. Unlike other games, you'd rarely want to replay an older version once the new one is out, they really are updates rather than sequels.
Re: So tell us Mr. Branson
I apologise. I thought using all-caps would CLARIFY IT WAS A JOKE but clearly that was far to subtle for you lot.
So tell us Mr. Branson
What reason could you have for living on your own PRIVATE TROPICAL ISLAND other than tax evasion?
Wow, they even have a WP7 client!
a screen-orientation lock button
Hoo bloody ray!
That's what HD TV and my PS3 seem to do (ok HDTV is 1080i and PS3 is 720p but same principle, neither deliver 1080p).
So if I call Subway it will instead of "ring ring" go "eat fresh" over and over and over and over?
Re: Is it really worth the effort ?
When you have billions of facebook responses to generate, your servers are going to be running at high capacity. That's why FB needs entire datacentres in the first place... if they have 1000 servers and overclocking can gain 20%, that's a lot less servers.
Plus, this is just R&D.
Re: A well-deserved brew
If LO would properly support DOCX, it wouldn't matter if publishers used Word for their reviews...
"The .doc file format was also obfuscated, deliberately or intentionally"
It's a good job we stopped using it a decade ago then.
will arrive at the planet in the summer of 2016, provided it suffers no more problems
I imagine it will arrive then even if it completely fails, since gravity is a 3rd-party system.
Re: Does anyone wanna bet
Well they already list nutrition advice on all their food in-store, and calories on the menu itself, (I think).
If a business is keen to invest in tablets, then W8 makes a decent amount of sense. No reason you can't have all your PCs on W7 and tablets on W8.
Seems they might as well wait until 8.1 though really.
Re: I'm a little confused...
For this particular news story... I don't think you do. Someone can find your profile but they won't be able to see anything about you. Other than presumably your profile picture. If you're on the run from the mob, this could be a problem.
Re: Different name
Why would total strangers be allowed to post on your profile/wall in the first place?
Re: Facebook == Big Brother Watch
>>Do you really want everyone to know all this stuff about you?
I'm not really bothered. Just like I don't insist on whispering to friends in the pub in case someone I don't know hears my opinion on the ending of Lost.
force more content to be readable by everyone
Maybe in general, but not in this case. This story simply means that the fact you are ON facebook can't be hidden - that "John Smith" has a profile is searchable.
You can still lock down everything about you from strangers.
How is your home-business going jake, I was meaning to ask?
Re: Oh joy!
Wow, they've let you in on their plans for a product that doesn't even exist? You know that after all the rounds of discussion and testing, they won't allow you delete your 'cookies'?
Surely your NDA prohibits you disclosing this information.
Re: It's what monopolists do.
Yes, bing and IE are certainly monopolies
re:That might be true, but the literate technology users are the trend setters
Then how come IE was the dominant browser for a decade and MSOffice/Windows are still the de facto standard?
Re: IE 6
"I had a call today from a friend who is a bit of a technophobe.
At home he has two machines, each running XP and IE6, IE6 that will not update as XP is the O/S."
So firstly he's the technophobe, but you don't even know you can upgrade to IE8 on Windows XP.
Secondly, he's running WindowsXP, and your solution is to install FireFox/Chrome? Never mind the OS?
Are you sure you're a friend?
Re: the game?
With MS announcing their own iOS RDP client, maybe they plan to get into selling their own SaaS platform where you can use Office via a cloudy machine via RDP, without actually owning that PC - you simply run Office on the cloud connecting with your SkyDrive documents.
Other companies have already been trialling this but run into licensing problems, MS could quite easily do this with their Azure and 365 infrastructure.
Re: I'll be damned
Since MS isn't seriously competing in the tablet world (yet) it only makes sense they would try to do this. If they get a decent market share with tablets running Windows, maybe they change their mind!
Bad luck for anyone selling 3rd-party apps...
I don't think lack of DVD pushes people to iTunes any more than it does Netflix - streaming video is where the world is going.
I prefer ethernet for my main PC but other than gaming, WiFi works great. More and more people are buying laptops as their only PC these days and they generally do not use cabled networking unless they have to.
In an office, I think wired is still a requirement but that's not Apple's target market for laptops.
If you need a computer with DVD plugged in the whole time, just buy something else then. Hardly difficult is it?
Re: "the company should include one of its external SuperDrives for free"
Yeah, it's certainly possible to run Windows on a Mac. I run mainly in Windows so would go the bootcamp route if it ever came about. My Desktop PC and MacBook are both getting quite old...
"the company should include one of its external SuperDrives for free"
I can see where you're coming from but think this is a stupid idea. It wouldn't really be "free", it would merely mean the 90% of people who don't want an optical drive are subsidising the minority who do.
Personally, I would absolutely love a 27" iMac, but they're just so damn pricey. I was seriously considering it as I do iOS development, but then I looked at the Mac Mini spec/pricing... the only way an iMac could be justified for me is if it replaced my existing Mac AND Windows PC.
Seems to me that Android owners are pretty obsessed to show off this fact, after all you took the time to tell everyone. open-source people are WAY more evangelistic than Apple/Windows.
Why would people downvote a)someone asking a genuine question b)someone who takes the time to give real hands-on feedback.
Get back to jacking off to the Linux source code, you bunch of spotty virgins.
Shall we all bookmark this thread
So when the Android fanbois start bleating about the new Samsung/Google phone outselling iPhone5S in a few months, we can remind them that outselling an old phone isn't a big deal?
Re: 5S and 5C impressive for different reasons
Do you have to focus on using the fingerprint scanner, or do you find if you pick it up "the right way" (!) it automatically detects your finger and unlocks without you having to think about it?
What is the point?
What do you do when it gets to 0 and you're still fit and well?
How do you know they can't find a way to make physical copies unique?
Is this DRM or a better alternative?
Thinking about it, if watermarking is deemed secure then media providers don't need to be so paranoid about how they stream/deliver you the content. They can let you have the content to do with as you see fit, and still be confident they can identify you if you start distributing it.
Is he keeping his Oracle shares?
Is Ellison dead?

What's the current state of play with AMD Vs nVidia for consumer GPUs? Are they pretty level again or is nVidia still the Intel of the market and AMD is... the AMD of the market?
