It's basically an ultra-ultrabook so by that logic the fact it costs a lot is unsurprising, that's a lot to pack into a tiny device. So I agree with your argument, but can't see it being ideal for most people. But then this is proof-of-concept stuff.
Re: Let's see now...
Typical Linux user - cheap and sees nothing wrong with having to travel with a bulky backpack at all times. Howard from Fresh Meat (Google it or whatever Google rip-off tool you people use these days).
The thing I don't get is why it doesn't come with a keyboard-cover as standard when it's clearly aimed at business use.
Re: "the full office experience"
Access is used all over the shop for small applications and internal projects, and is entirely suitable for that.
Anyway, "a far cry from the latest iPad's 9.7-inch, 2048-by-1536 Retina display". Who cares? Nobody was complaining about 1080p resolution tablets before iPad3.
Email up to 10Gb - not really
You can email a 10Gb file once surely, then your drive is full because you'd have to remember to delete it - doesn't Google add every gdoc you open (even using their web viewer for .doc attachments) to your drive automatically?
Goldenshower more like.
There's really no reason to make life so miserable for those in jail
Too right. Give them the vote, PS3, iPads, Sky and why not beer on Fridays too.
Re: Scary crap from the states... NOT surprised
>>I'm glad I'm not part of that era where insecure human beings had to intimidate other insecure human beings just to get a foot-hold on the world
You're not? Sounds like a typical school or internet forum.
Re: " Apple will reap what they have sown."
It must so hurt people like you when Apple continue to pile in the billions for their well-reviewed 'mediocre products'.
No they don't. As Hawking says in ABHOT, you wouldn't even know you'd crossed the event horizon.
Re: Does not compute?
So you're not target market then are you. The fact THEY are just copying an image across is irrelevant, the typical buyer will spend how ever many hours it takes to download/install/configure Linux.
Of course if you want a specific setup it's not for you but if someone wants a Linux dev-box, $50 is a good deal especially if they are not an expert Linux-er...
And as for you charging $300/hr, yeah right.
Re: They are giving the middle finger to microsoft at last!
As mentioned, creating and testing the image will have taken a fixed amount of time. At least as much as Windows, and fact probably more, but split over far fewer units sold.
Someone remind me... once you're beyond the event horizon you can never get back but does that also mean you can't escape getting closer and closer, or could you enter into orbit of the singularity inside the EH?
Re: What happens if two black holes collide?
Define 'meet'. Isn't that the same as 'collide'?
Re: Does not compute?
It's a niche product they have to put more time into per unit (R&D overhead / number of units). They might also anticipate higher support costs.
You're paying someone $50 to set it up for you, how much do you value your time?
Re: "Time for a rethink" suggests Dr. Karl
What happens if two black holes collide?
What exactly is wrong with nuking the moon? It makes more sense than setting it off on Earth, which is what we actually did.
Although, would a nuke work as well with no atmosphere... you need matter to create a shock wave.
Re: The standard model?
Yeah you get all the fermionic goodness of the Standard Model but with the special WIMP expansion set for free.
Re: Hardly catastrophic
You're just jealous :)
Re: Move the badges
The badges are OK, but the ignore button is really intrusive... I'd suggest it is aligned on the opposite side of the page to the badge.
Or that you have to go to a user's profile to ignore them, to a)tidy things up b)make it require a tiny bit of effort
You can only game yourself to silver. Gold is hand-picked. Though by an idiot based on the recipients.
>>I note you need to get so many upvotes for a gold
No you don't. That's the kind of comprehension failure that would be marked for "needs improvement"
Re: Buy yourself out??
Effectively saying he wanted to pay not to have to go through the process. He was going to pay with the bonus he wouldn't receive for not complying.
That used to be the case, but is less and less true as time goes on.
It's almost like the internet itself is changing over time or something!
It's a tough line to walk between "it was good enough for 1999, why change it" and change for change's sake... it's important to remember old sites weren't static and simple because it was considered better, but because connection speeds and browsers back then couldn't handle anything more!
Re: Great article!
With tablets, aren't we heading back to 4:3 a bit anyway?
Re: I love my Mac, iPad, and iPhone....
Chris pray do tell us which company you could switch to which doesn't aggressively use patents? Cos it sure as heck isn't MS or Google.
There's nothing like a balanced view for a good debate, and that was nothing like a balanced view.
Re: ...not again.
And Google are angelic in comparison?
Oh wait, I forgot the site bias where Android is a blowjob and Apple is rimming your dad.
Just very disappointing.
Re: enough of the trolling ..
Really, having to change the default place documents are stored is a reason to install an entirely new Office suite?
Talk about an over-reaction.
Re: Are they ever..
Good totally subjective post there Fred. Well, it's not 100% subjective if I'm fair, the objective parts are simply incorrect. "Profoundly unsafe" indeed... because your local hard-drive is statistically safer than a data-centre with RAID-6, etc, etc.
Realistically how long until that all slides into the background and you stop noticing it, exactly the way an newly plastered wall looks ugly and then 2 years later a dinner guest mentions "you're still doing the house up then?" and you realise you never got round to painting it!
