Re: Optimal solution?
Surely the optimal solution is to stop having wars?
Re: SPF natwest.com
>set up by a big boy
No, they were lying. It is what businesses do now when caught out.
Do they assume that everyone currently compelled would suddenly subsribe?
Is it possible that the charges wil be higher than O2's £6 per MB?
Re: Do they have quantum PC's yet
The clue is in the name 'NetApplications'?
Presumably these stats have nothing to do with what people do at work, only what they do on the innertubes?
Bit of rounding going on?
65+31+5 = 101.
'down from last year in the face of growing competition.' - presumably from Microsoft, her figures leave little room for anyone else!
And "Analysts at Wells Fargo" aren't do-nothing parasites on the business world at all, are they?
Chair weights. What have they created?
They did. I saw one in Brazil at about that time, along with one shaped like a pen that was /entirely/ voice-op
Re: It's coming along
Bloody good show for trying.
Really hope something wonderful happens.

walked out yesterday
I wanted to try out some cameras, to navigate the menus, to see what the options were. All of them were connected with microUSB cables, so all should have been fully working. 2 out of 16 would power up.
They have to buy their own printer
Re: washable keyboard?
Brilliant idea. Why has it taken so long?
I pay for a mail.com account, but you can get the same thing free from gmx.com
"Out of the frying pan...into the fire"
Watch yer backs
So that's 25 companies lined up to be shat upon in 2.5 years time, is it?
Microsoft's "partners" have never been guaranteed a long advantage in the market place.
I've used it when self employed to manage my business, and to do Xwindows development on.
I also persuaded a couple of survey ships to standardise on it to avoid the continual virus infections they were getting.
It is superb for electronic chart applications too: run VNC on the chart computer and display it anywhere withoug worrying about licence fees or updating or antivirus. Or people installing stupid games.
What the UK can bring to the table.
We have a pretty impressive set of people who would improve the planet. By leaving it.
FM radio, you notice. Not DAB.
Yep. For example look at geograph.org.uk .
3 million pictures by people, people like me.
A handful are good photography. You still need to know where to point it,what not to include, and how to be patient.

And yet they flogged us all those x600 or x768 screens!
Re: Are offset touchpads common now ?
It seems to happen when there is a numeric keypad, yes.
I'd quite like the touchpad to be at the end near where I would use the mouse - so I did not keep moving the cursor while touch typing.
Sick and tired of remembering hundreds of passwords
1960s technology belongs in the 1960s.
It really is about time we had a better way of proving who we are.
So it's you who has my old saw? I was looking for it this morning.
Sharefile.com have collaborative workspaces with secure access, not sure how good the logging is, never used it.
Re: Build It And It Will Come
I just think it's a shame
That they can't make some RiscOS machines for fun. With an income like that they could afford to fill British schools with them, for free.
Re: Or get this..
I assume you are having a larf. So I will. Can you install Linux on it?
Ok, 1080 lines isn't much, but its a fair price & nice to see wired Ethernet..
I might buy it.
>For £100 I would buy a semi-smart watch with a camera
41 quid to you, mate.
"comparable in features "
That's not going to set the world on fire.
FDS, come up with a compelling reason. Some desireable feature unavailable in any other way. Mousetrap, better, path, beat etc...
Re: Theater, indeed
>If you wanted to make a terrorist attack, why wait
>until you are through airport security?
Or, indeed, why this obsession with aeroplanes? Why not attack a nice, unpatrolled, railway terminus or cathedral or bus station or ferry terminal? All these, and more, feature in terrorist attacks in the mad orient, yet no-one imagines it will happen in the dignified occident.
We have even had attacks on busses and stations and branches of Mcdonalds, and yet only airports get the drop-yer-trousers approach to security.
The simplest impromptu weapon remains the smashed duty free bottle, or the 'penang lawyer' walking stick. And yes, the molotov cocktail would be pretty devastating.
Don't MI6 or GCHQ have the expertise to run a government cloud?
They could house the swervers at Bletchley Park, the tunnels at Dover, Portland heights, Lunna,
>rather boyish buttocks
Nothing wrong with that.
Re: conflicting form factors
You are obviously in possession of advanced info - you seem to know it won't cause damage. I did not deduce that from the original article.
conflicting form factors
I don't mind them nicking the SD card layout, as long as damage can't result from mis-plugging.
Looking at the demo, they could add a large plastic wumph on the top to stop it going into a normal slot.
@Chad H. Re: Irony
I've nicked that for my .sig file
Re: the next Yellowstone
I thought recent news suggested that the next Yellowstone would be Yellowstone?
Re: Never buying SONY again
I have an Xperia tablet from work. Connecting a Bluetooth keyboard kills thw WiFi dead.
Sony have /never/ replied to reports, emails, posts on their own forums or on farcebuk. I have tried to telephone both them and O2 and had no responses.
Buggerem. Sideways. With a rotating pineapple.
All these things look like a dick Tracy Crystal set radio from the small adsin american comics, along with the seebackrascope & x-Ray spex.
I might become interested when they

...the worst backup software there is except ...
The thing that annoys me about Acronis and all the other "user friendly" systems is you can't find out what they do from any documentation. When you fire up and give a backup name do you need to include the date? will the next one ask you again, append to that one, make a delta, make a new one by auto-increment the first name? what? say you want to use a physical device for backups, does it have to always be there? can you move the backup set to another bigger drive in 2 years time? or does it have to do it.
Seems to me the only way to find out is to try it and waste a lot of time.
Re: Monster mash
That's a million-to-one, surely?
Re: trouser pockets
Is it time for the thigh pocket ('sadlebag') to escape from the hill-walking fraternity and make it to high fashion and saville row? One of these monster phones is not unlike an OS map, after all.
Yet another root-and-branch upheaval a few months after launch.
Does no-one finish anything before selling things any more?

So now we know it takes less than 60 minutes for the angels to wreak eternal vengeance, 'cos they have to be done in time to move on to the next time zone.
