Re: Epic fails on 3 fronts gets 85%?!
#3, SD... in the real world the vast majority of users do not give one tiny little jot. Hence this cannot be an EPIC fail, only an annoyance.
Also, I don't get the fuss over ICS... 2.x is only one generation behind.
Re: Oh FFS
...dont call it the "God Particle", please.
Its offensive to science.
The term is used by scientists, you moron. Maybe restrict your proclamations about what "is offensive" to fields you actually know something about?
Re: "You'll be claiming that they don't ban big winners next"
Casinos negotiate with big players (not poker players) based on knowing how well that player plays. If the person starts winning too much, they can ban them or retract the special dispensations they offered to get them to play.
doesn’t support a lot of popular gaming titles
I must have missed this in the article... why is this the case, is it because of the Android version or something else? I thought most Android phone apps were 2.x since ICS is not mainstream yet.
Re: So the real cost for non Win 7 users is..
Except there is no upgrade path from XP / Vista to Win 8.
Well not if you don't want to completely nuke your machine.
Sorry MS, my time is valuable, more than 40$ valuable.As opposed to upgrading to Linux, you mean?
That new Google button was our idea
And the clue is in the word IDEA. Tough.
Re: Fuck that for a game of marbles!
I'd rather end up in a council flat eating dog food at 70 that sucking up to some prick higher up the so called "food chain"
Then you probably will get your wish. There is the real world, and there is the nice little world in your head where people are promoted purely on merit, everyone confesses their own mistakes and never take credit for someone else.
Re: Fundamental misconception.
The author of this article does not seem to understand that people who are good engineers are usually so because they enjoy doing things right and take a viewpoint that is based around what is optimum for the system, not just their little nugget of it. We have become engineers because we find greater satisfaction in actually being good people who move things forward, than we do playing internal politics and bickering over our share of an increasingly small pie.
It's your choice - you can listen to the guy with 25 years' experience. Or you can practice reciting that speech for the job interviews you're going to be hoping for soon.
What good is that for Lumia owners if the converse isn't true?
Newer iOS apps don't run on older phones either. Even newer Mac apps don't run on older Macs. This isn't anything new.
It's not going to happen and it will never happen
You mean like an iPhone with a bigger screen won't happen?
Re: It would be Tim Cook big second mistake at Apple...
The quick straw-poll that is El Reg commentard voters, shows even radical anti-Apple people think aan iPad mini is a good idea.
That logo looked crap to me. Maybe I'm just too out of touch, was it obvious to the rest of you the red thing was a map pin without thinking about it?
1024x768 as a "iPad2 mini" has to be the obvious route, allowing smaller price while remaining profitable and still a great display.
Re: If you use the proper name everybody on here will surely understand
No this isn't the case, because the name is used by physicists not adolescents trying to sound cool.
It IS a decent price, on a par with what Apple charge. Maybe that's deliberate, maybe not...
310 million users
Is that all? How many people use the internet - a couple of billion?
To an average consumer who watches normal TV (HD+SD) and streaming services like Netflix rather than lots of blu-ray movies, would there be an obvious difference between watching a £500, a £1000 and a £2000 TV? Are we talking very subtle videophile-level differences, or something you'd walk into the room and go "wow that's amazing"?
Re: Yes...I'm that guy
I love how everyone is being downvoted simply for saying "I like it". Not saying "you should like it", just "I like it". It just emphasises the childish, immature nature of your typical Linux evangelist who claims to support freedom and choice but is personally affronted if you exercise that freedom to disagree with them.
Maybe Linux users are just so angry all the time because they have to use Linux.
Re: So the real cost for non Win 7 users is..
Why does a non W7 user have to buy W7 when W8 is released?
I love a Linux fanboy suggesting someone else goes outside into the real world.
Re: I upgraded from Win 7 to openSUSE...
You saved $40 but you didn't upgrade. For $0 you could have remained on W7.
Re: URLs such as dogs.are/cute or fast.est/swimmer
join.me is a valid URL too. Not sure why.
Re: Hold on...
Don't be daft, he thinks he can entrust all his data to a single 486 desktop running Linux - no need to backup either. After all, it's Linux.
You're talking nonsense. Problems due to overclocking are statistical in nature... Intel clock it at 2.5Ghz because that means it statistically gives a very low failure rate, at 3.75 they are not satisfied with reliability. The fact your chip runs at this speed just means you got lucky, or that it hasn't broken yet.
URLs such as dogs.are/cute or fast.est/swimmer
Oh jeez. Gone are the days of URLs that make sense then.
overclocked CPUs are more likely to make a Windows PC crash
Um, no s**t Sherlock. Running a CPU faster than designed raises the possibility of problems? Surely ANY computer running ANY OS is more likely to crash in such cases.
Apple's New Security Policy
Every time a component or application is found to have vulnerabilities, just turn it off.
Re: Even if IE9 is alright
That's stupid. Stop acting like a child.
Agreed IE9 is pretty slick and the integration with W7 is something cool too - seeing tabs as separate previews on the start-bar for instance.
Regarding spell-checking... you can get spell-checking for IE9. I've got it installed and it's identical to how FF/Chrome do it.
Would be nice if Google actually created something from scratch.
Well done for totally missing the point of open source - creating software so that people CAN create great software (free or commercial) with it.
If you want to demand people put back in "their fair share" to the community start your own "it's only fair" license to compete with GPL, MIT, Apache, et al. I'm sure you'll get plenty of MPs supporting you.
graphics performance equal to a $1,000 conventional laptop
That'll come in handy for rendering web-pages.
$1500 isn't eye-watering. And I thought this was only vapourware, not something they actually had working! Where is the CPU?
Re: Why the non-IE drowser partisanship?
You betray your ignorance.
"decades of experience" means you're an old, past-it has-been :)
Ignorant about this...
...it's passed me by. Is the idea it's a single way for BBC, C4, ITV to deliver streaming video - in effect a new additional tool alongside iPlayer which supercedes it?
Given the massive difference in quality between iPlayer and 4OD, I'd be worried it won't be as good as iPlayer is to begin with (although iPlayer implementations on non-PC platforms tend to be pretty hit&miss).
Or did I misunderstand totally?
Apple are dominant because they're the first to launch a decent mass-market product... just as they were with iPhone. Yet now iPhone is not the dominant market player. Tablets will become less brand-specific eventually, or will die out.
