Silk via EC2 seems to be optional...

and by optional, I mean opt-out.

From their T&C (section 1, 4th paragraph)

http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/?nodeId=200775270

"You can also choose to operate Amazon Silk in basic or “off-cloud” mode. Off-cloud mode allows web pages generally to go directly to your computer rather than pass through our servers. As such, it does not take advantage of Amazon’s cloud computing services to speed-up web content delivery."

Nokia C1-01 budget voicephone

jayp

looks good, but have a question...

Does this, or indeed any S40 Nokia have a built-in threaded-sms view?

(In fact, is a threaded view available on any S60 handsets?)

Thanks

Death by 30% cut: Apple app tax must change

jayp
Jobs Horns

my 2cents...

tbh I have no issue with Apple charging 30% - it is their store after all.

The problem I have is their insistence that App Store prices must be the same or better then those offered elsewhere. If it weren't for that (and I hope they get a kicking for that clause) then would there be this much of a fuss being made???

totally agree...

I second this - my 310XT along with Garmin Connect is essential in keeping me motivated, esp in the past few weeks when I could see doing nothing over xmas has led to a serious drop in pace :-(

Telespial Systems Trackstick Mini GPS

WTF?

220!?!?!

Well if you fancy saving ~190 GBP then try this "RTek SiRF Star3GPS Rec/DataLog" - http://tinyurl.com/294tdwr

Ok, it's not waterproof nor have a fancy magnetic holder but it runs for ages using AAA batteries and logs my runs accurately enough.
