Re: We have all been there...
Great as it is to know better than everyone else Steve, you might not be aware some of us use the internet for important things.
Re: I know why I dislike the google
Bad the google.
If the DDOS attack is still ongoing, how do you get back online... and why can't the DDOS just continue running for days or weeks?
Re: Adobe, Autodesk, the Mafia...
Nobody is stopping you from using open-source alternatives. Hell, nobody is stopping you starting a project. If you all put your $1000 into a pot, that would buy some great developers.
almost impossible to enforce
One of those rules that is almost impossible to enforce unless you are so un observant you don't see the plod next to you.
You mean like how it's impossible to enforce car-pool lanes? Oh wait... they do enforce those.
I didn't know that was a right, I thought it was an opinion.
Re: Here we go again...
What about import duty?
Loads of people work a 9-5 job and then have 6 hours free in the evening.
Re: Uh huh.
And how are you going to watch that ripped version on your phone in a hotel when you didn't think ahead to copy it on?
Re: UltraViolet, classic bait and switch
Didn't you just copy-paste that from the last UV thread Paul? It's almost like you're some kind of lobbyist.
Re: Never use Ultraviolet code
That's probably because you never leave your bedroom?
Nobody is interested in your stupid ChromeBooks. Please stop wasting your time and money on this when you could be doing something cool and useful.
Re: UV filters
I know Netflix USA and UK have different content, but does the digital world work on the same regions system as DVD/BD?
Re: Uh, 16GB?
Buy an iPod classic then.
The point of a nano is you trade size for space... and you can very easily swap what albums are on. Every few days, every week, even every evening if you want.
16Gb is quite a lot of albums.
Re: They still make these ?
My phones have had MP3 support for ages, but I've never really felt comfortable using it as a MP3 player. I don't really even know why, but I would say I find the dedicated UI on my old 3rd/4th-gen nano is preferable to using it on my phone.
Do any of these exploits require any sort of brute-force or CPU-intensive stuff which would be far easier with the massive improvements in JS performance? I wondered if new vulnerabilities might be a side-effect of the JS 'arms race' between Chrome, IE and FF.
Re: Has there been a paradigm shift and nobody told me?
I think it's something called the "inter net"
If a product takes as long to develop as MS-Office but has 1/10 the user-base, it stands to reason it will cost 10X more.
This is the case with most pro creativity tools... look at Quark Express, Maya, 3DSMax, etc. I don't know if any of them ever tried dropping the price massively to see if many more started buying, it's not hard to imagine even normally moral folk would struggle to pay £2k for a software tool especially a freelancer.
Re: Missing from the review.....
It might be iTunes only on this device but historically that's definitely not the case. There are several free/open-source tools (for Windows at least) although which versions of iPod they can use varies. I use the very minimal SharePod program.
Re: Poor choice of materials?
The back isn't glass, who cares it it gets scratched?
Re: Poor choice of materials?
I took it to mean easy to scratch during assembly, i.e. on the inside... the outside is regular Gorilla (2?) glass isn't it?
Wait for other companies to release Windows tablets? This isn't like Apple, other companies can create their own WinRT tablets. That includes the companies who are creating Android tablets... they can make Android/MS versions of the same basic spec if they want.
Re: £80 for a keyboard?
I was disappointed about how expensive accessories are for this, fair enough if the base model is a premium spec but don't try to make a profit on keyboards if you WANT people to use that format.
Re: Didnt Pre-ordered mine last night
Well MS don't have the bulk purchase discount Apple do. But maybe they want to compete on features at the high end, not be another cheapo product - they want people to not simply buy because it's cheaper than iPad. That's a reasonable angle to take, IF it works.
Did you actually have a point or did you just want to see you name on the internet? My anecdotal evidence is as valid that of the person who owns 7 Android devices.
And whether Google make money through iPad is irrelevant to the point that they ARE failing to get into the tablet market. If the newest devices gain a foothold, how many years has that taken and how many $billions?
Re: Buddy, can you spare me a price point?
>>An iPhone and an iPad are two different beasts. One's a phone for starters :)
A 3G iPad is basically a phone. An iPod touch is basically an iPhone with no phone.
"to make this a go-to place for technology businesses"
Yes, 22 whole employees for a company valued in the £billions. Great catch.
Come on MS
This is your biggest opportunity for a decade or longer to unleash a genuinely interesting OS, and you're screwing it up? I'm not a fanboi (for any OS) but I want MS to succeed and do something interesting.
When do other companies get to show us their versions?
Re: you're happy living inside your Google Bubble?
I'd be more worried if I had to resort to using EasyJet.
Re: I think we all know the cause of his symptoms
There are scientific flaws in what you propose. The effects might be cumulative rather than instant - only after being exposed for an hour is detection possible for instance.
I've never seen anyone use a non-iPad tablet. Literally never, I don't even know anyone who owns one or has thought of owning one.
I see lots of Android phones but in my demographic at least, tablet IS iPad still.
I find it odd that everyone and their dog wants to laugh at MS' failure in the smartphone market, but nobody even mentions Google's similarly poor performance in the tablet market.
Re: Buddy, can you spare me a price point?
Just because the iPod is smaller doesn't mean it should cost less. An iPad is on par with an iPhone in cost, so iPod and iPad-mini being the same is no big deal.
What a surprise
When a report criticising file sharing comes out, it's just daft rubbish. When a report comes out in favour of file sharing, it's credible research.
And this from a community who genuinely believe they are objective and high-thinking. Tragic.
Like they say, get a tablet. Many of the problems e-ink solves - reading outside and eye-strain after protracted reading - are far less of an issue for reference books which you would nearly always look at inside for a shorter period.
I assume you're well versed in how these apps work, rather than simply making an ignorant comment after reading "re-definable keyboard" with no understanding of what it involves?
Re: Touch input?
I wonder. Could MS "do an Apple" and bring an existing but unpopular tech to the masses... we all thought tablets were daft until iPad showed they can be useful. Maybe, just maybe, W8 could do the same for touch-screen PCs.
I think it's pretty unlikely too, but you never know.
Such a scam, expecting you to pay to use the car-park!
If such car-parks have barriers, they could presumably stop you getting in if you have outstanding bills... so whether the invoice is legally enforceable would be moot. That's what I would do.
Re: Just as towns are discovering that free parking
I don't know, my town is served by a few multi-stories and all streets are metered but you still struggle to find a space at the weekend.
You must live somewhere grim :)
