I thought recent news suggested that the next Yellowstone would be Yellowstone?
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
*don't make me look like a berk
*do something revolutionary and indespensible
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.
That's a million-to-one, surely?
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.
Dual (or more) sim would be a killer!
Everything you say is true.
It doesn't make me stop wishing that AD would die in as horrible a way as possible.
It does rather read like "Apple are smelly 'cos I say so".
But knowing him he will be doing at at some hitherto impossible rate!
Where I work at $MEGACORP engineers are lower paid than managers or sales people.
I just spent a whole year sorting out an impossible system that some idiot sold. I got it working. All I got was my salary. The idiot got a huge bonus for selling it, despite that it cost us nearly twice as much to get working as we made on the sale. He got the bonus last year, and there is no way of taking it off him.
* Engineers should not be lumbered with student loans. If the country needs engineers, the country should train them.
* Engineers pay should always be higher than the pay of people who merely sell things.
You can buy an unlocked phone from Apple, so why do you think the problem lies with them rather than with the resellers? Is there some contractual complexity you aren't telling us about?
... which probably accounts for the dead link on page 1.
>Side profile is pretty much identical to an Apple wireless keyboard / magic pad
It's been while since someone invented a new topographic form that hasn't been seen before.
you might just as well say that the Psion had a round bulge at the hinge and so has this...
"Dell's Latitude 6430u Ultrabook Stink " ... and of cat pee
Sorry to Dell, whose hardware actually looks pretty good.
I thought governments were supposed to listen to us?
I stopped buying HP optical drives because they did not support DVD-ram, and kept disconnecting in Linux.
Sorry, HP, it's not a cartel at thier end - it's overpriced mundane products at yours!
The fact that they are still selling Windows Mobile 6.5 tells you a lot about how little Microsoft has thought about their legacy customers when designing WP7 & WP8.
That's not a pocket, that's the fly.
Some of us find the space within already filled.
Aye. I rather liked that design.
The thing is, curved is only good if the length matches the ear-to-mouth distance, like the old telephone handsets.
That said, being curved in this plane makes more sense than the Samsung version!
A girl I was at school at opened a card-index and telephone based version of this back in the 1960s. She laid on the hotel rooms and the champagne as part of her fee, and ended up convicted of 'procuring' or some such anti-pimping legislation. I do wonder if M-A charging a fee doesn't lay them open to the law in some countries.
But what products do Apple (or Microsoft Surface for that matter) offer for people who [i]do[/i] want to chose serviceability rather than thinness?
Where I live doctor Beeching ripped our railways out, so I don't think it mattes here.
... In the one that got taken apart.
I don't see why MS can't buy from multiple suppliers over time, or even at the same time. I am slightly dubious about some of these stripdowns - OK, CPU and wireless chips will be pretty much fixed, but there is no reason to suppose that things like SSDs, accelerometers, screens, other modular parts can't vary between production runs.
... that regularly takes down the photo of a woman who had a floral tattoo after a mastectomy?
Can I plug in a USB peripheral? memory stick? share data with clients?
Can I use a USB cable to charge my phone? Headset?
Can I connect a bluetooth headset and make a phone call? or a 3.5mm headphone/mic & join a conference call?
Can I connect a video projector on a client site? with audio?
Any way to use cat5 internet connections? for customer sites that don't offer wifi?
No? not really a business device then.
Yeah. Putting aside all discussions of OS and performance, they seem to be wanting to charge me a hundred quid for a keyboard.
I might be from Lincolnshire, but I bain't a cabbage!
Does God get the choice of what Operating System he wants to use?
We were told in the 60s and 70s that 'automation' would mean we would all work 3 or 4 day weeks. Instead those of us with jobs work 7 days and loads of people are out of work. It must be possible to share the benefits out a bit better than this!
So why do they think they need a computer?
Don't worry, RR, I won't vote you down. I recognise heavy irony when I see it.
> since you can just pop one in.
Which is presumably why the more modern devices don't have removable bits.
>just as many working class with them
chav appeal. I earn LOTS but I don't have a smartphone of any sort.
> sky dishes up on council estates.
Aye. well-known effect
Was a time when http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/3690181 had all the satellite dishes in town.
Do you like tacos?
In the land of the flying doctor and the school of the air, I can really see the point of this.
But, as was pointed out, books may not be the best market. Delivering car spares, hand tools, bits and pieces, even fashion, to remote locations would be cool. And you could 'chute drop them.
OK, here we go
* Alec Days butcher - one 3Kg chicken, 300g of sausage meat, box of stuffing, 300g runner beans, 300g sprouts. Some wooden parsnips.
* Branch Bros. 100kg limestone chippings, 100Kg builders sand, 10Kg cement
* Bourne market - 5Kg potatoes, 10" venison pie, cabbage, watch battery, bag bananas, bag plums, 500g wet walnuts.
* Special Import tools: Wiha 36931 ratchet
That's it for the last 7 days. Do let me know how much you get paid.
I am perfectly happy with that idea. I also don't really care about being tracked - as someone said above I am not very important. If I was going to meet my mistress  or drug dealler  or KGB contact  then I would leave my phone at home and take a 'burner'.
 no, I don't do that either
 Damn, you got me!
Clippy was the one Microsoft product I've never seen crash.
Good luck with actually achieving anything.
I'm not convinced by Glass, or linked watches, but I am really pleased that people are trying new ideas. Like SMS some unexpected take-up might happen. We can't plan the future, but we can scatter ideas about and see what happens. Good on them for trying.
Thanks for the lucid explanation.
What is the extra, non-thrusting, flame coming out of the side?
>MANY tablets which run Windows or Windows RT
eh? are you counting the unsold ones one at a time?
I'd take 'a handful', but 'many'?
... and no removable storage?
did the same person buy one of each?
I'm sorry, I'm just not buying this.
Or the story.
Fair enough. I'd put their uselessness down to being told to be useless by Brown, Cameron, et. al.
But as you say, it might be built-in.
So that's my CV rendered worthless, then.
A certain company in the Aberdeen area, which shall remain nameless but it's initials were Racal Survey, used to insist on photos with CVs. Rumour was they wanted to silently avoid anyone with a non-reflective cast to their skin.
I had my picture taken in a Ginger wig with pigtails and painted freckles on.
I got the job.
