I like that Steve Ballmer loves Azure, he should, that's obvious. I love his Midas touch.
I understand the n950 to be the n900's replacement. I think here we're talking something bigger or El Reg missed some nuance in its reporting.
MeeGo, if you want battery life, on ARM9 Tegra 250, Shirley?
I'd rather have an Open platform
I'd rather have an Open platform than pay only Bod knows how much more.
It could be the kernel
I believe the reason they went to Linux is because it can be a general purpose real time low latency kernel. Which is unique. It the fastest trading floor in the world and others are adopting.
It could be the OS, in conjunction with interrupt driven hardware, that's at fault but the combination is a difficult one. Real time in Linux is a only few years mature. The LSE trading system is much newer than that.
Software is never finished.
I hope this Linux platform goes from strength to strength.
Any other idea would take years or is steeped in IP problems.
N+1, M for one better, M for MeeGo. Mokia because they could take the piss out of WPblah on Nokia.
1500 Symbian devs took a half day on Friday. They organised then and they all have a reason to chat the day they get sacked.
1500 MeeGo devs would be an army. Nokia was well run and those devs would come with discipline and good practice built in.
Dell, Ubuntu and OpenStack
Care to comment? Would love some analysis.
Couldn't give them away
I think I saw BOGOF+XBox360+university tuition fees at one point.
Microsoft can't bid
Microsoft can't bid for tenders but its 'solutions' can be stipulated.
Until that's fixed...
Should have used African Swallows.
Google's eyes on banner blindness
A floating advert sits at the point of view (as tracked) until Google think it has been absorbed.
Time for an evil google CEO icon?
I always check the author
This time I hoped it WAS Lewis Page.
Good luck in your new job.
Open Standards without licence traps
Simples. Just a matter of bandwidth and hardware decoding after that.
Computer sculpture? Anyone do art in Edmonton?
Anyone like to jump over piles of things with a 4x4 or bike?
Use the cases to house something else?
Hire out for 90's TV drama use?
I won't point it out, you'll get there eventually.
This is a series of articles. It starts with laying out our fears it ends with??? This could be a horror story extolling the virtues of a one size fits all cloud solution. Loss of jobs, 33% higher costs (Gartner, McKinnsey) and few solutions. And where is the OGC/ISO/Usual suspects' standard for cloud security?
VirtualBox is free for now
VirutalBox is free for now. The PHP based front end for it is pretty great. And have use seen teleportation on it?
Ideal for SMEs and austerity.
Coke and Apple have lots in common
http://killercoke.org/ and http://www.cultofmac.com/report-another-foxconn-death-this-time-on-ipod-line/54098 . Classless at the user end and classfull at the rich owner end.
I think I want one
Love the concept. And if the OS is without walls ala Maemo then in the immortal words of Tony: Great.
Not that old chestnut
Get out of the bit delivery business if you don't enjoy it.
Free the postcode database
til she turned the laptop around for us to see. Poor girl. And at the other end of the jobbing actor spectrum you have Cannes winning films.
Selling Dynamics now
I was looking for the link between Andrew Buss, Freeform Dynamics and Microsoft while reading the Old PCs story. Not immediately obvious from the Freeform Dynamics website apart from the name.
There you go.
Enough is enough
Enough is enough when Linux becomes too fat for the platform. Every PC should enjoy a decent OS before it dies.
Where's the DVD drive
Why don't they include a DVD drive?
My mom wants one box that records Free**** and plays DVDs. That's all...
If the its camera were a little snappier... Put an SD card into it then RAID1 a partition on the phone's internal 32GB drive to the SD card.
"Here occifer, have the SD card..." with a pleasant smile.
Shame, you can't do this on, say, an HTC Desire because its internal drive is iccle.
Need a touching-nose icon.
you can do that with an iPad.
Where's Simon to lift my spirits?
It's not just the Chinese...
Time for a new community
A website (or app off a website) where people present crap ideas. The community vote on them. Anyone willing can buy a share that pays for the effort to patent the idea. Those share holders get part of the licence fees.
Even if ideas don't get to the patent stage the content might be proof of prior art. Like Open Source software development the community would move faster than Apple etc could.
anything to do with 3d user interfaces
anything to do with gestures using the front facing camera on a phone preventing fingerprints on the glass
e.g. using 5 fingers/digits pulling or pushing to zoom
Do a Selfridge
and start advertising 125 days before the event.
I don't want to hassle Simon
but on a day such as this, a new episode should be mandatory, no???
It might have been a coffee thing
Could have been a talented admin but incorrectly fuelled. Where can you get good coffee at 3 in the morning?
It's not always management's fault. My blood/caffeine alarm has just gone off...
A simple question of compression
There was no action, no movement of the ball and therefore no scene changes. We were all watching a jpeg.
A good article but a complete picture?
The coalition have been accused today of trying to solve the problem too quickly and also of not going after the banks more harshly. And for ideological reasons (the lib dems lost the argument.)
There is a sum of cash missing. Get it from the banks who can be you're friend or from the poor and the middle classes who don't have a voice?
A reduction of 25% in public services is going reduce the ability of the poor and the middle class to spend. Not to mention the damage it is going to do to front line services. That damage could have been mitigated if the reduction were 20% and the cash regained over a longer period.
Pain for three years then some good news and then an election... The Tories are working within a window of opportunity rather then looking at the long term potential to solve the problem.
Conspiracy: did this article come up short for a reason?
Put Fedora on the Linux partition, format the Windows partition as Linux and put Ubuntu on that. Join the RPM/Debian war. Either way it's win/win.
Couldn't agree more
I was shocked when I heard his voice pushing the nasty tech. If we could Web2.0 the ad he would go from 'Highest Ranked' to 'down ranked to oblivion.'
Unhappy face. Disappointed.
I prefer to think of it
as charismatic like Real Ale. People look cooler drinking coffee than they do snorting white stuff.
