successful as its rival's, and Redmond's -> successful as its rivals', and Redmond's
Having used the Mac 'hockey puck' for several years, I'm not going to quibble as to how much people will put up with, but that mouse is astounding. I want to turn it over and see if it has 'Jony' inscribed under it as a joke.
Homophone school. Either you've been or you've not.
'it is sound system' was all I heard. Call me anal.
You're right. Everyone should be punished because they don't call things that same things you do. Please don't meet an unknown tribe....
I have to agree - as a cross between Keynote and Pages, it'd be great to slideshow the eBook I've created on my interactive whiteboard in front of the students, using my Macbook. They can follow on their iPads, whilst I demonstrate and check for comprehension, etc.
I understand Apple might be trying to encourage the use of iPads, but to expect a teacher to create a work, push it out to students and then have to eschew the use of the interactive whiteboard in favour of a handheld iPad connected to a data projector is, unfortunately, rather an obvious shortfall.
I'm a teacher, clearly - I can see lots of potential here, but there's a little bit of fail, too...
The functionality of a smart cover can be replicated with a magnet, so not having a smart cover doesn't protect you - turning off the smart cover function in the preferences is the bit that's key. (But this is old news, anyway - broken last week by other sites. That said, you'd expect perhaps a fix by now...)
O2 customers... join with me...
Net neutrality? Let me laugh in a hollow manner as all kinds of traffic shaping takes place across the UK, as O2 customers in particular wallow in the vacant acres left behind a promise for true unlimited broadband and are slowly culled by a service which realises it cannot fulfil what it promised.
Net neutrality? Try using bittorrent to download Starcraft 2 from Blizzard's perfectly legitimate servers during prime-time Eastenders half-hour as they exude massive sweaty secretions to push huge tubes of inter-you-tube spunk to the masses whilst cutting back on ports vaguely-piratey and might-have-been-naughty.
I wipe my hands...
As the article at least implies, this was a waste of time. A whole load of massively spurting tech-gurus exuding nothing worth noticing. Typical. At least this journal remained clean. Let me wipe this away from my perma-glaze Registrynil covering...
I use LoveFilm, and they've been pretty good over the past few years, but I don't see their service improving in any way. In fact, they're removed features that made them better and failed to replace them. Sometimes, they treat the customer as some kind of resource-sucking hog that needs to be removed. It's an interesting relationship, and one I've left and re-joined at one point. It's certainly fluid, and bears some examination.
The Poor Relation
It's always great to hear what Microsoft is going to do. Back in the 90s it mattered...
Not quite right
You don't need a licence for a computer monitor or television used for a console device or, indeed, any piece of equipment capable of receiving a broadcast television signal unless it is actually being used to receive a broadcast signal. Check the telecommunications act; it's very clear.
