PlayBook stock mountain: RIM slashes prices

I think everyone has forgotten the point of the PB

As I understand it the PB was targeted at the coroporate environment. The reasone the PB is tethered to a BB is to ensure that the device never holds any sensitive coporate data. As soon as its out of BlueTooth range, its just a semi decent tablet.

I appreciate that the iPad is a far superior experience, but the controls around remote wipe are immature and dependent on Apple services and they are playing catch up to RIM in that respect.

I have been testing a PB for some time now and I do agree that for the most part its a toe dip into the pad marketform by RIM but I am sure that if the tethered mail client gets features that at least match those found on the BB and its more nativelyt supported by the BES, it will be a decent alternative.

Euro beaks to rule if TVCatchup.com is legal

Devon_Custard

Good Service, cant see the problem

I use TVCatchup everyday on my laptop or HTC when in bed. I am quite happy to watch Jean Claud over and over again when swapping channels as a means of paying for the service. Whats more, the fact that the original advertisments in the channel are not removed plus the fact that I already pay a license for Beeb channels leads me to think there isnt really a problem here.

I cant see how the original broadcasters are being diddled out of money when I could just walk downstairs and watch the same on my tv.

CERN 'gags' physicists in cosmic ray climate experiment

Thumb Up

Erm, Hockey Stick.......

Does "Hockey Stick" indicate a new Reg measurement value? Temperature over time in hockey sticks?

Are CERN taking on any others? Sheep in a vaccum perhaps?

@Trevor_Pott

Sorry, but if you have enough time to individually apply settings to 50 machines you have enough time to collate them and automate.

Fuel....

I have lways thought thatthis is being looked at from the wrong perspective. At the moment we drive up to a petrol station and fill up.

Shouldnt we just design a car with a replaceable battery? Drive up to a fule station, change your empty one for a full one and drive off. The empty one can then be left to charge for as long as required for the next person.

Rather than fuel deliveries there would just be some trucks moving batteries around to even out the spread etc

I appreciate there might be some holes in the idea. I dont know how much a battery would cost, but the more there are, the cheaper they would get until they ubiquitous and not worth stealing.
