Re: Random opinion
Don't be stupid, they're not going to force motion control on you simply because that isn't an option for many users. You'd be able to turn it on/off.
Thanks, that's all I was looking for.
Love downvotes on my question for simply asking a question. Those wacky Android shills, they're so cool.
Re: Could be in Nokia's interest
Why's it need to innovate, iPhone is popular and this version is a bit sexier and a lot faster with some upgrades on the OS. If you like iPhone, you'll like iPhone 5.
Something big and new is ALWAYS a gamble so you only make it when you need to. Like the Lumia, they have nothing to lose so gambling makes sense.
Please do feel free to grow up. You're just an embarrassment.
And no I don't own an iPhone or shill for Apple.
Question to the Androiders
So we're saying the iP5 is not much of a change. How does this compare to the top-line Android phones then... both how they differ from the iP5 and how they improved on the previous generation.
Let's focus on the Galaxy SIII - how does it compare to the iP5 and how is it revolutionary compared to the SII?
technical discussions only, try not to use the phrase "walled garden" I want to know about the capabilities only.
16Gb for a nano seems fine.
I don't think Apple view Nano as something punters will upgrade every time like iPhone, merely they keep updating it for people on old versions, or new customers.
I haven't tried one but I can't get my head around the idea... I have a 3rd-gen and it's lovely. Also isn't $149 pretty damn expensive for a nano, I thought they used to be more like 1/2 that?
Only one problem?
I wish HTML5 had included another/proper development language rather than introducing great technology controlled by a crap language.
Re: Facebook is not the social networking platform of the future
"Facebook is a college yearbook website that expanded to accept non-students. It was never really a fully visualized social networking platform. "
Fair point except that FB today is very different from FB when it was a college yearbook. That version no longer exists.
Blah bl;ah blah. People have been saying FB's going downhill since it had about 1 million users.
Cupertino's idiot-tax outfit
Good quip but hardly appropriate for a serious story.
Re: swerving wildly off-topic
please don't use the word 'evolve' you clearly don't know what it means. You've learned this over your lifetime, not passed on altered 'ad ignore' genes.
Re: The flaw is in the very words "information people need to consume"
The VAST majority of computer use IS consumption. Therefore it makes sense to bias your UX to that area. People creating content can stick with Windows 7 or just use the W8 desktop.
Re: Not poisonous
Why should I need an app just to watch a video? Doesn't YouTube support HTML5 these days?
Re: What's the new part?
If recycling is free, don't you get people just dumping their trash into the recycle part?
Too much bacon not good
I find it overwhelming when there's a solid 1/2 inch of bacon, or a dozen rashers rammed into a bun. I want to enjoy the taste of the bacon complemented by the bread, not use the bread as a vehicle to hold as much meat as possible.
You say false advertising, I say lack of understanding of technology.
Yes but you're a nerd who knows about how computers work, the typical user isn't.
We know why broadband doesn't always/normally get the quoted maximum speed but we still complain it's misleading. Same deal.
Re: Have used...
Terminally lazy? Really, you search hundreds of agents manually? Or do you mean you use the comparison tool and then manually check the best two or three?
I'm not a web-dev and I can figure it out.
Re: GoDaddy no wonder
It's less about who opened the door than it is about who walked through it.
Yes we know, everyone popular is shit, blah blah blah. Maybe when you're old enough to run your own business your opinion will be worth listening to.
Really, we're talking about millions of sites taken down, thousands of businesses impacted, and you want to whinge about how we're using the wrong term?
Flying has become too safe; people are just not prepared for anything going wrong
If it does go wrong, all those safety drills mean pretty much diddly squat... pulling a little mask over your face as you plunge to the ground at 400kt
Re: Both of them?
App developers are going to be 95% phone/tablet. Equating W8 on phone/tablet to Vista just makes you look a fool... if anything WP7 was the Vista and W8 is the good version (mobile only).
There were loads of stories about tickets flights being more expensive if you shop with a mac
The recent story was about hotel bookings and it did NOT say they charged more for Mac users. It said Mac users were shown more expensive rooms first - the same rooms were available at the same prices to all but Mac users were shown the more expensive ones first.
As for the "plane flights go up in price" thing, well plane tickets DO go up in price nearer the time don't they? Are we talking about using the provider's site directly, or using sites like Kayak which won't tell each airline your cookies?
Shouldn't this be in Bootnotes?
Hardware is for serious articles I thought!
Google's advantage is that Apple are control freaks
This is also Apple's advantage.
Dude you need to take a intro to statistics course ;)
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?
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.
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)?
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.
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)
Does anyone know if the Kobo is profitable, or are they still trying to break the market like Ms with phones?
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 ;)
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!
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.
It's one of the few industries the UK actually has a dominant position in any more?
Is this a move to get foreign companies to move here, or to help established businesses compete?
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 :)
