Re: Can you even still buy Surface RT?
In the UK....
But why even use the app?
The support built into iOS is pretty comprehensive - no need for anything else. The only thing the native app doesn't support is tasks - and, as they say, there is an app for that.
Can you even still buy Surface RT?
Just been the MS website to look at how much the RT actually is (end of year, tax write off, all that) - and if you click on the RT links, it takes you round and round and only ever shows you Surface Pro details!
Have they killed it?
"Larger than life size"
Quoth the Legoid Marketing Brick :"larger-than-life sized creations"
Errr...no. It can't be both "Larger than life size" and "1:1" scale.
Pffft...marketing types - they never actually understand what they are saying.
Works for on my machine
...(I know I shouldn't say that...I slap testers for saying that...)....but still...I bought my iPhone 4s because it is the only modern device that works with my in car bluetooth. I'd rather be having a....that is a different story.
Anyways - upgraded through all the various OS incarnations through to 6.1 - and all is still well. WiFi can be switched on/off no problems. In fact I'd never even heard of this issue before.
That said, if it had happened to me - I'd be right royally ticked off. And yes - Apple are supposed to be about standard hardware/firmware - so this shouldn't ever happen!
Getting my coat for saying "it works on my machine"
Not only don't Amazon care about folks rooting their Kindles - they don't de-root them when they issue an upgrade. I had installed a screensaver hack on my Kindle - then the s/w updated itself and I was all prepared to have to sort out the screensaver again - but no - the update preserved the original hack for me.
Very different from "other" suppliers.
...are usually 30% or above.
I like to call them pimps.
And yes - I know what that makes me - but hey, pay me enough and I'll code it and smile whilst doing so.
Shipping costs vary
I wonder if now they'll stop the practise of charging more for shipping for business customers?
That reason alone was enough to put me in the direction of Scan. Who give excellent service.
Actually...unlikely to be a kettle lead...
...more likely to be an IEC power lead - a kettle lead has a slightly different connector on the end.
And, I imagine the Russ Andrews would be charging £2k for one of those - due to its high power handling in extreme environments!
Mines the one with the bag full of snake oil in the pocket.
You said <<Android tries to sidestep the problem by providing a tick box to switch off the security mechanisms that prevent rogue applications being installed, but what proportion of users have ticked it we don't know.>>
At least on my HTC Desire, you have to find the check box and select before you can install non signed apps. The default is to not allow it.
I was going to buy one...
...but no. I don't want a toy phone. I want to be able to mount as USB drive on any computer I go to, I want to sync with Exchange and I don't have a Facebook account. I don't want a "social phone" I want a smartphone that I can use to do the tasks that I want it to...
I had high hopes for Mobile 7, but this really blows.
Will it support NTLM?
If it supports NTLM authentication, which the current Android browser doesn't, then I for one, will welcome our new operatic overlord.
At the moment I can't access my intranet due to the lack of NTLM on Android...
Radio 4 on internet is waste of bandwidth...
...I have internet radios all through my house. I listen to stations from all over the world, usually at 96Kbs - and this gives fine quality. However, why is BBC Radio 4 256Kbs?! It is only talking, and doesn't need the huge bandwidth required.
My neighbour has an internet radio similar to mine - where if you cycle the power it automatically starts playing the last station (Radio 4) - and there was a power cut when they were on holiday. 2 weeks later, they had used all their internet download allowance...
Also...Amazon wanted a monopoly on eBooks...
...they wanted to have a contract such that MacMillan couldn't charge less (through any other distributor) than whatever Amazon wanted to charge - and MacMillan would have no say over what Amazon charged - so they could effectively give the books away
A lot of complainers here...
...seem to be bitching cos Derby saved £250,000 - surely we should be complaining when councils waste £250,000 rather than just assuming that the saving wasn't a good deal?
That kind of thinking leaves us with a government that spends money and spends and spends and any suggestion of money saving is all about cutting services...
I like how he has changed history...
...keep saying the lie long enough and everyone believes it.
"The 'downturn' is the fault of America".
Oh...so spending *way* beyond our means for the past umpteen years would have no impact at all...and didn't Northern Rock nearly fall before Lehman Brothers? The USA could even blame us for the start of it!
Clarkson was right in his description of Brown..."One eyed Scottish idiot".
Search on Outlook 2007...
..is hidden. The "advanced find" context menu option is no longer there. You can still use it though by press ctrl-shift-F. Why MS have hidden it I don't know.
I know this because I disabled Desktop Search on my vista installation (I have never had any problems finding my documents -so I don't need another service slowing my machine down) and then the search options went awol in Outlook 2007.
I've since gone back to Outlook 2003 because it is way faster...but that is another story.
BNP not far right...
..their agenda is actually far left, but with added racism.
They want centralised / nationalised pretty much everything - which makes them far left. It is just their racism that folks equate with the right...
Again, one more reason not to trust them...
the whole "one rule of us, and another for the proles" is getting very monotonous from the government.
Why are the kids of MPs so special? If they are that concerned about the database for their kids - then we shouldn't have ours on it either.
Finally proof of my sanity.
For a fair while now, my family and friends have quietly, and not so quietly, mocked me about my growing paranoia over who cows are always aligned when I see them.
I shall use this article as proof of my sanity.
It is still, quite obviously, some bovine conspiricy mind you.
Why not just use the Boston Dymanic Robot Dog Thingy?
That would scare the wossnames out of the kids and whilst we are at it - why not use one of those robo-dog thingies for the Mars explorer vehicles. It'd give the little green men the heeby-jeebies!
Bl**dy Hell! That was quick!
Had a quick google on "Fused Multiply Add" and looked at the Wikipedia page - and it referenced this article!
So either you guys are updating wiki *before* telling us stuff (shame on you! We should come first! :) ) or we have some real avid Wiki updaters on here....
+1 on the docking connector
I've got a D820 (after having a D800) and because the lappy is for use outside of the office only (or in the garden!) - I have 3 docking stations situated around the office and house - wired up to big screens and proper keyboards etc.
If Dell don't use the existing docking connector on the new series, then I'll be looking to buy somewhere else.
I'm gonna wait to upgrade though, till I can get a quad core lappy with the Latitude docking connector.
The English in this article is appalling
Two easy examples - missing word "that" in "Most people recognize **that** developers should not build their own encryption mechanisms"
And, I think you mean "you're" not "your" in "Now your talking. Organizations that ..."
Doesn't anyone proof read these, or shall we all just strt txt spkng?
6Gb in 5 hours!
Bloody hell! I didn't know that there was that much porn out there!
