Re: There is a 100% effective filter ...
"This is why you don't give your kids access to the internet anywhere other than a shared laptop in the living room or something."
So confident and yet so naive. Your children have friends, right?
No way investors could make an informed decision that quickly.
Id be tempted to buy some Nokia after such a big slump if I had some high-risk money floating around in my account (all tied up in AAPL right now)
Re: Floppy disks
I very much doubt you ever had 8"
Neither, I'd bypass the filter.
Now read the question again. Or re-word as "if bypassing the filter was a lot of hassle"
So should the age limit on sex be removed too, and it's up to the kid's parents to decide when they are ready? What about parents deciding their kid is old enough to go to the pub and buy booze?
Re: Has anyone thought of the children?
The whole point is children aren't deemed able to make a mature response. That's why we have age limits on tobacco, sex, voting, etc.
Re: Are you serious?
I don't get a 7 second delay even on the cheapest Lumia 610. I wonder if his stopwatch is faulty ;)
A straw poll to those who DON'T watch porn
Would you opt in (vote up) purely because you don't want to be filtered or for ideological reasons, or not bother (vote down)?
Re: I had a Lumia 800
It's great how you don't let things like not knowing what WP8 is like get in the way of such a confident decision. Who needs facts, pick a decision and stick to it no matter once!
A straw poll to those who DO watch porn
If this did go through in a way that wasn't possible to evade, would you opt in to your ISP (vote up) or choose not to watch porn any more (vote down)?
A service you require?
Re: There is a 100% effective filter ...
Kids are always more technically savvy than their parents. Even good parents stand little chance really. And if you're a parent who thinks you've stopped your kids accessing the web freely, the chances are you haven't.
Not released yet? CPU, RAM, etc...
Sounds rather nice considering I thought the Lumia handsets we already had were quite good.
You don't install this as another HDD which you can see/access, it gets used as an external cache effectively turning your existing drive into a hybrid?
How are we still able to pick up transmissions from something so far away, they must be horrendously weak by the time they reach earth?
I found developers liked SL because it let them share .NET code, and avoid having to use another language. This was before HTML5 became the big thing though, and any plugin became popular - when the idea you needed a plugin for rich web was a given, SL was technically pretty exciting.
Re: Not hard to get around...
Or, you know, you could NOT steal the stuff. If it gets to the point you're planning how to get off on a technicality then it's pretty clear you're not torrenting in defence of freedom, but just a freeloader.
Re: Yet another iPhone
If they did that everyone would be in uproar about how they 'ruined it'. See Windows8 threads.
It's a small box with a screen, there's not a whole lot to change. If they add NFC and wireless charging that's a big deal though - we know Apple have the strength to make both things standard. Of course then everyone will think they invented both and that will make Reg posters very happy about having stuff to post about, but in the long term will improve stuff for the rest of us.
To those that have seen it, does it ever really look like that photo or is that massively post-processed and filtered from a much more wishy-washy real-life version?
When ARE we due the iP5?
I don't want one, but I have Apple shares :)
That's good to know, I thought it sounded dodgy anyone would stop supporting IE8 while so many PCs remain on XP.
Re: Tired of MS playing politics
Care to elaborate? They seem to be big into HTML5 now. And I thought WebGL was a deliberate choice due to technical issues rather than political.
Re: IE developer tools are not exactly great either
Whether as good I don't know but they're certainly better in IE9. And note of course Visual Studio has a lot of web-dev stuff.
Re: not looking at the whole as usual
Makes you want to slap a big Elastoplast on poor little Earth doesn't it.
That's because they're fresher. Nothing else, apart from psychological effects (which are entirely real).
Re: They already use human waste as fertiliser
Does anyone pick them?
Most of what we term 'organic' tastes better and/or lasts longer because it's much fresher due to being locally produced. But that's a difference about local produce, not organic produce.
Re: It's the sprays, stupid
Yes, they never thought of that. No doubt they had a nubile lady feeding them peeled grapes.
Re: Can anyone explain?
A call is person-to-person. Radio lets all the cabbies hear it... dispatch can ask "anyone near West Street?"
You can get free satellite just as you can free TV through your aerial, what's the difference?
done way more for Free Software than you probably ever will
Great argument. It's going to make the Reg forums a bit empty when only people of similar stature can comment on a story.
Re: Simple tool to determine the quality of food
No. Precisely because of how evolution works, your taste buds have not caught up with artificial fertilisers, etc. If fact they probably haven't even caught up with farming, full stop, and are still living in hunter-gatherer times.
There's some evidence your body can crave foods based on what's in them, but detecting trace amounts of some chemical which could build up over the years and cause long-term harm - no.
What is this exactly? I get nearly a week between charges on my Nokia Lumia but then for me 'normal use' is not very much, whereas some people are constantly on their phone. Which does El Reg consider 'normal'?
Still won't that look rather ugly, when you have a slick looking iP5 plugged into a sleek dock via a big clunky adapter?
even Microsoft Security Essentials can find and kill most variants
That kind of silly statement just puts your entire knowledgeability in doubt
Techie != programmer. And loads of developers never work on web stuff.
Re: Analysts are not what they used to be
What about LinkedIn, with a P/E of 917?!
Re: Oh, ffs...
On the other hand I bet you'd like it if your premiums dropped because they could avoid paying out to people claiming their 60" LED TV got nicked.
Good on you N. Korea
Everybody needs a friend.
Typical Linux response... "what do you mean it's not easy? It's very easy. You just have to write this 4 line bash script"
It could get them a share of the tablet market though.
Re: Nokia is out on a limb, with its bridges burned...
Nokia may have dumped any plans to do Android at the same time as Windows, but if it does bomb they can still switch and rebuild.
