Has the Reg sunk so low??
Hardly - most politicos will just see them as another (albeit tasty) threat to their power base
Who's more (or less) intelligent....
... the artist, or the one who actually forks over huge amounts of money for a few scribbles?
"although I think the pod will survive the fall, the shock of hitting the water may crack the hatches, and if the pod were then to roll, it would fill with water and be lost".
Oddly - I'd assumed the survival pod was a life-raft as well (in case it got swept off into the ocean by heavy seas.... something that nearly happened). Obviously not.
Re: Offline functionality...
Only going to happen when all of Google's employees have their 24hr wi-fi and 4G service taken away from them for a week and realise that being online is not a permanent state of being.
Google = Borg?
(closest icon I could see)
(can't see an 'Enders related icon..)
Anyone else getting a little miffed at having to use 2,300 mAh and 3,000mAh instead of 2.3Ah and 3Ah? Shirley it'd be easier to use the shorter form? Or is marketing speak leading this trend for ignoring normal unit usage?
'Burn-in turned out to be very difficult to achieve'...
Obviously the author never stood on the concourse at Paddington attempting to decipher the times on the overhead CRT screens at the end of each platform.
pile of steaming....
Just loving the background image of 'obsolete' equipment.... including a Dell running Win8.1!
In support of balanced views...
I've been using a Plantronics BackBeat GO bluetooth headphone set for a couple of months now (since Xmas) and they've been really rather good. I use them daily for the walk to work, and have used them in the gym once where they were fine - didn't fall out and didn't get in the way. Music is good quality (although admittedly I most use them for listening to streaming radio), and phone calls are crystal clear.
Nasa taking selfies again?
So - how many usb sticks/drives can you daisy chain into it? (I assume there's a limit), and would it list them individually or as one big drive?
High altitude PRU blue?
Didn't Asus already do that for the PadFone Mk1?
I daresay you can install an alternative launcher, without going as far as to root the device.
(just a shame you don't get the choice to uninstall the crap that gets loaded on - eg FB, twatter, etc)
very upbeat review
compared to the review of the XperiaZ recently - makes it hard to make an objective decision, given that I'm at upgrade time.
So - if El Reg's advice is to remove the facebook app - what's the advice for those of us who haven't rooted our phones and thus aren't actually able to remove the "operator installed" apps. eh? eh?
Used to love this game...
There was a very good port to WinMo6 as well - kept me occupied on train journeys for quite a while, and was surprisingly touch-screen friendly.
Anyone know if there's an Android port, or anything similar?
signs up to other websites mostly
you know - like the shopping websites where you shop online, or the social media websites you interact with, they sell on the address lists to people who sell the lists, who sell the lists etc etc (and getting shadier with each step) until you end up with your email address on a botnet list.
just set up a hotmail/gmail/some-other-web-mail-that's-got-good-spam-filters account and use that for all sign ups.
Don't hit "unsubscribe"
yup - they do that, and an actived unsubscribe link is just a confirmation that the email is live.
regardless of the morals...
if 7.8million gallons of water only costs $28,500, why is my water bill so freakin high??
ok for modders, but the rest...
... of us who don't mess with the Operator Roms will have to wait for them to catch up.
Still awaiting Orange's DesireHD 2.3 update...
(mine's the one with the warranty paperwork in the pocket)
A Soapy tenner says....
it'll be Bunty
kitten burger anyone?
although hardly enough for a full box of nuggets. :(
Tablet looks good - does the full size USB provide power too? (ie can it be used like a USB socket on any regular laptop?)
important info we need to know....
instant or ground?
If you preview all the route via a fast wi-fi/3G connection prior to setting off, the GoogleMap on your phone can cache all the map views and so not need the 3G connection (assuming you've updated the app and turned on the "precache" button.)
that it's also available for Android?
(or are we maintaining the fence between mobile OSs? )
so which Iphone...
is going to have the geiger sensors onboard? 6,7?
or will HTC beat them to it?
So far mostly happy with LauncherProPlus, on a large screen device like the DesireHD the ability to get more icons and widget space on the screen (I'm using a 6x6 grid) is a massive benefit over Sense.
Wish I could move the home-screens around like Sense can though - maybe that'll come soon.
Overall, well worth a couple of quid!
it's all public transport....
Not really been following the Boris bikes, but has anyone suggested linking them to the Oyster card systems??
Just as long....
... as they finished the arks before the giant mutant star goat turns up...
they're not the only ones....
I wonder that the reporter has not picked up on the situation with the HTC7's sister handset, the Desire HD? They seem to be in short supply in Europe too - with no obvious reason being forthcoming. Is HTC struggling to fulfill ALL it's orders? its not just Win7 customers who are waiting.
This linguine standard....
I want confirmation on this: is that "cooked" or "uncooked" linguine?
