Re: Innergie Magic Cable Trio - Alternatives for charging
And you can see a Apple FanBoi using that, they would rather spend the extra on the nearly 2000% more expensive device and look cool (in their own eyes at least)
Re: no, you can NOT pick it up in store

"I haven't seen a single corporation that's upgraded from XP on clients"
Really? you cant get out too much, I would say about 30% I have seen are already mostly Win7 with another 30% in planning.
"and now that everyone's intent on shifting to VM clients"
I have seen more corporate users upgrading to Win 7 than implementing VDI solutions.
"everyone's intent on shifting to VM clients, an 'upgrade' to anything as resource hungry as Win7"
You know its not so bad as you would expect, at least using VMware's optimisation guide for windows 7 average user onjly requires 1GB of memory, this compares with XP recommended of 1GB normal and 512MB Low End.

Re Windows 8. no way any corporate gonna upgrade to this unless Metro can be disabled, we all know it so its Microsoft's choice. Already at this stage most large corporations would have seen Windows 8 beta and made their opinion based on it.
The only business customers who are likely to buy Windows 8 desktop now is SMB customers so it all depends on the revenue generated from that.
Well thats my 2cents anyway, i expect to be stuck with metro which is a real shame as really like all the rest of windows 8 (desktop and server) but Metro will kill it for me :(
what a load of crap.
80% of people I see with iPhones buy it not because they can afford it but because:
A: They wish to appear trendy than they are
B: They wish to appear more wealthy than they are
C: There friend has it so so must I
I guess the other 20% are people who actually like the phone and think it is good value for money =p
That'll be because iphone ppl will buy any crap offered =p
Protected By Steam Guard
So where in the client I Get a nice green sheild saying "Protected By Steam Guard" it really means, storing all your data in a shared database allowing multiple potential breach points.
Most fail articale I have ever seen here.
Title - 45% of Android users to upgrade to rival phone OSes
And then you go on saying that most Android users will not stick with there current vendor....
What has vendor got to do with OS regarding Android?
Most Android users will be like myself, maybe you will stick with same vendor or maybe at the time something else will catch your fancy because da da da "YOU ARE NOT TIED TO A SINGLE VENDOR"
If the querstion was asked will you stick with android then its relevant, otherwise completely useless irrelevant artical
