...all the way.
"The launch has been very quietly received by Apple enthusiasts, who are typically modest and restrained users of social media."
"I am not a product, I am not a number, I am a free man"
Yes, your UID told us you thought that...
...thought "What about the poo?"?
"Unfortunately these watches don't seem to be compatible with the Vertu phones that segment of the market buys."
Ahh, but therein lies the crux. Now that there is 10k worth(?) of bling to wear, they get the phone as an accessory, not the other way around.
Sod the iWatch because geek chic that ain't...
What is the nerdyist watch, In the tech sense, in everyone's* opinion?
*where everyone = anyone who responds to this post.
That's the problem when your target audience are probably the biggest users of Adblock/Ghostery et al.
Is running away from an armed cop lawful reason to be shot?
At least he is still aLIVE after being NEUTRALised.
He will be back down to Earth then....
Wonder if he thought he was ohmnipotent?
"showed that they do not need to shoot every time"
He should count himself Loki....
"Seriously, is there no limit to human daftness?"
I thought all those resonses were rather SMART.
Is this SATAire?
Really would like Cameron to be POTUS....
I really wouldn't worry about someone who actually laughs at what kind of phone is used by others. Pity, yes. Sympathy for their mother, yes.
Windows phones running Lumia capture 5 have this facility. 830 and above. I think it is just a marketing decision to not have it on the 735, unfortunately, as it had a decent sensor and lens despite the mega pixel count.
"has a 16MP resolution but it’s the aperture of f/1.8 which is special, and will feature in the new LG G4 phone to be announced at the end of this month. LG claims that the module receives 80 per cent more light than that in the LG G3, which means you get better quality in low light and can use a faster shutter speed for action shots."
Bokeh, man, bokeh.
It is all about bokeh.
...outside London didn't even get a mention. Not saying that there are any options, but if there aren't, then there isn't really any hope for any other types of business.
UK <> London.
Mainly because Eadon made a wonderful habit of trolling in *every* post he ever made IIRC.
Hat off to you, Sir!
In two posts we have gone from an article on a new Android distro to Apple trolling, and a good one at that. This must be some kind of record...
Have an upvote.
...meant that I was half way down before realising this was a load of codswallop.
I actually had it in my head that the degraded quality meant that the bandwidth was a lot smaller, therefore offering a cheaper service.
Meh. Nice one!
"Biting the hand that feeds IT"
Kind of in keeping with that mission statement, though, isn't it?
All I can think of is Moist Von Lipwig.
How do you think the cookie got on there? Magic?
"RSL continues to be a valued supplier to the British Government on key defence and commercial pursuits"
So we value suppliers who don't deliver value.
Yep, there is the hand of the Civil Service in this.
"So you're saying it's not safe for cyclists to enter a gap between vehicles less than 102" ? (36" + 30" (width of bike) + 36")"
Don't be ridiculous. You know he wasn't saying that and a cyclist passing a stationary vehicle is NOT the same as a vehicle passing a cyclist and if you cant see that then I hope I never end up on the same road as you whatever vehicle I am on/in.
"use headlights at night, except on a road which has lit street lighting."
I did not know this.
Not that I am going to go off driving without my lights on *In theory!* ....
I should point out that when they were off, they had actually been put into the OFF position inadvertantly. Because I was so used to them being on automatically, it took a while before I realised they were not on when they should have been.
So they come on when the car deems necessary.
Only problem is, because my street is quite well lit, if I use it in an evening and the auto lights are off, I don't notice they are not on for a few hundred yards. Because the Dash is profuse with an OLED display, and lights make up everything these days on car controls whether day or not, there is no visual indicator.
This is *my* fault. I am not blaming the car in the slightest. But with these features comes an over-reliance on technology which is inherently dangerous. ALl the modern tech in a car will get you out of trouble you *shouldn't have been in, in the first place* yet regulation starts to see these things as the only way we can be safe drivers.
Or, a bit of blutac over the camera. Hilarious...
or or or or office ROBOT WARS! Now I can see the point of these...
Micro USB cables I have ever had personally go 'a bit weird' tend to be ones that the cat chewed.
However, I have noticed a disparity in quality of cables which I think is down to the wire used.
IIRC, more thinner strands of cable are better than less thicker strands for longevity. However, thinner strands are more costly to produce. Since cables are inherently seen as consumable and a necessary in most packaged devices, you tend to get cheaper ones.
Interestingly, the cable that came with a Palm Pixi a good few years ago is one of my favourite go-to cables when travelling because it is pretty robust. Despite the tooth marks.
edit: Re-read your post. When you say 'ruptured', do you mean the insulation only around the bottom or actually the wire cable starting to show?
Another one to add to the pot.
So far, the Free Eset scanner has found things that Malwarebytes has missed.
The non-free one has a disgusting UI though...
"the "250 of 30 days remaining" trial period?"
I completely forgot about that bit!! Ha. Thanks for that extra memory.
Oh yeah, I typo'd - it should have been "How I loved thee..."
How I loved the....
Get back under your bridge.
Most Windows Phones are ARM based socs. So universal apps will run on both x86 and arm.
I have heard of them but never witnessed one!
Cor....thanks for that pic. I would never have believed it otherwise.
"The Register contacted Apple, but has not received a response as of publication."
Am I a bad person for wanting to hurt the person who came up with that tagline?
in that subset?
But will it run Cry...oh yeah. I see it does.
"teachers will be using these as coasters and ash trays"
You know what? Screw you.
There are crap people in all areas of life. Doctors, teachers, programmers, journalists, drivers, cyclists, and bloody commentards.
But there are also good ones too. To turn around and consistantly churn out the useless drivel that X are crap without looking at the general reason why they can't produce what is necessary is downright insulting. How often have good coders been screwed over by useless managers (and, let us be blunt, vice versa)? When politicians consistantly use the education system as a bargaining chip and point scoring system, make benchmarks that have no real world meaning, make the educators not *just* educators but sodding social workers, parent replacements etc...even to the point that they are going to be criminalised for not saying something about potential abuse when rumours abound in schools and always have done.
Teachers should be allowed to teach. A lot of them are good at it. They are not replacements for your lack of parenting skills and they shouldn't be made that. They shouldn't be given short shrift for all of a sudden not being equipped to teach how to code, when even people who have had the supposed training are still crap and work in business. I was schooled in the 80s. There were no real computing lessons at my school. But they had BBC micros and I had the kind of mind that was just interested. So you can't force this on kids who don't want to learn. And you can't entice kids to want to learn if they don't have a good environment to foster that and in order to do that you have to let the teachers have the skills in the firstplace to actually provide that basis and foster encouragement.
IT teachers have taught what the curriculum mandated, which has been what we consider to be mostly office type skills. Now that has changed and people love to sneer and hold up their superiority as how things should be done and how much better they are in tthe technological world. Tell you what, why don't you go down to your local school and offer to volunteer to run a (supervised, because we all know there is a PDO lurking around every corner) workshop so they know how to use these Micro Bits?
That is all.
Thanks for that! I had never heard of that before....
I had to search on that term.
" it will also be a farting robot."
FINALLY - I was reading all the comments and was expecting a raft of farting jokes and not one. NOT ONE!
The quality of commentators has really gone uphill. :(
"...Game of iPhones"
Unless, of course, the new "Game of iThrones" is coming out to coincide with that other, necessary tech paradigm shift to hit us.
The new Apple Toilet. Excrete like you never have before, in more convenient ways than before.
